James Ross Wedding Host

"Specialist Master Of Ceremonies & Wedding DJ"

James Ross works full-time providing bespoke wedding entertainment services as a combined Master of Ceremonies, Wedding DJ and Party Host.

Your wishes and needs are my priority and I would love to discuss these with you to help plan the wedding celebration that your special occasion deserves!

My approach is holistic treating the day and evening as one. Working backwards that means great party music, professional sound system and party lighting in the evening and this is achieved by supporting your wedding breakfast and ceremony so that everything links together smoothly so you can relax and enjoy!

Most weddings I support have guests of all ages from children through to grandparents and the music I offer is a good variety of family friendly, popular/recognised songs of different genres from current charts and across the decades as appropriate.

    "James was incredibly helpful before, during and after the event. I felt completely confident that he had everything under control. He set up and was ready to go hours before he needed to be and cleared up afterwards with absolutely no fuss. The disco was just what we had asked for and James was extremely prompt at getting music requests played. Thank James. Excellent job."

    "James was brilliant from start to finish, making a site visit and talking to us about what we wanted then setting up the day before the event and being available throughout the whole event to provide music for the whole day as well as the disco in the evening. James is an excellent DJ, very intuitive to the needs of a multi-age audience in relation to music selection and as a consequence had us all dancing all night - a really brilliant "do" which everyone absolutely loved."

We even caught him helping to cleat up rubbish throughout the day! He went above and beyond to help make our day special! Thank you James!"

He made sure he was set up before any guests arrived and was dressed very smart as it was a black tie event. I would not hesitate recommending him and will certainly keep his number to hand.

    "customers said for a new years eve party , his choice of music was shocking. people left early because of the poor atmosphere caused by the dj."

    James Ross Wedding Host responded to this comment as follows:

    This is an unfortunate review as you were elsewhere that night and have based this on the comments from two people. My software automatically keeps a log of all music played and confirms that the choices were recognisable, popular, generally upbeat and appropriately varied to suit the different tastes that night. Many people were dancing throughout the night and there was a large crowd until at least 12.30am. Your deputy enjoyed himself and he gave me a hug at midnight!

    "James was the only one who went to the extra effort to call me to find out about my day, my plan and introduce himself and that really shone out to me. He went that little bit extra and I like that. Throughout all the planning, James was very much involved or there when I needed him. James asked lots of questions about our music plan and most of it, it didn't even cross my mind how important they were so he was a very good guide for this. On the day, well he was just fantastic. He arrived well in advance, set up and was involved with the preparation. Once the day begun, it was all go go go, but he helped us all out by organising everyone for photos, wedding breakfast etc. He's very assertive, efficient, polite and friendly and I literally can't thank him enough. I have already recommended him to several people getting married next year. If you are looking for a DJ, then definitely book James Ross. I cannot fault him and his work ethic is just outstanding. Really great person and price is amazing. I certainly will be booking him in for future events. Thanks James! Your the best!"

    "James Ross was incredible. From first point of contact, James was very professional and took note of every part of our wedding. He was maticulous to every detail which assured us that he was going to do a great job. Actually could not have wished for any one better. We had several DJs contact us but none took the time to get to know us and what we wanted for our day as much as he did. We had guests telling us how he was very quick to respond to guest requests and was able to fit most in. Highly recommend James. If you want your event to run smoothly & keep your guests highly entertained he is worth every penny."

    "James was a brilliant DJ. For his music and for his kind and caring attitude as he saw me struggling with chairs and he helped/took them off me like a gentleman. His music he played was spot on what everyone wanted although it was a short set. He provided us with a wireless microphone and even joined in with some of our gags and jokes. Lovely person and a brilliant DJ. Would book again!"

    "I received an email from James Ross DJ through the needadisco.com search site, local to the area James provided us with a package and aligned this to meet our budget requirements. Throughout the process James was warm, friendly and took his time to ensure that the party was as tailor made and personal as possible, giving options for specific special songs etc. we were able to be quite specific with the song choices and he didn't disappoint... We had a varied mix of 80s music which brought back lots of memories for the happy couple. James also MC'd throughout the evening, combining both the important (buffet opening ha) punctuated with special messages and well wishes. James made an already lovely evening just that little bit better by being as through and personable as possible. I would highly recommend James Ross DJ for all disco/MC needs... Thank you very much James"

"Not only did James arrive and set up on time - he also went the extra mile and helped us carry items into the venue and set up. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we would definitely book him again."
Christening / Baptism / Naming in Halesowen (B63) on 08/12/2013
"Excellent all round service. James gave a professional service. I would describe it as prompt and well planned. Communication was flawless throughout. I would recommend DJ James and will use again in the future. Thank you."
Birthday 40th in Burton upon Trent (DE14) on 04/12/2013
"James is charming, professional and charming and his attention to detail was appreciated. We had a few phone calls in the beginning to ensure the booking and the event ran smoothly and it did. The guests commented that James was a good DJ and they clearly enjoyed his choice in music and themselves on the night. Thank you James your number is definitely in our contacts for future bookings."
Wedding or Civil Partnership in Macclesfield (SK10) on 19/04/2014
"James is highly recommended. You usually meet the DJ just before and then that;s it but it isn;t like that with James. He wants to help down to the smallest details and coordinates between the venue and everybody to make our wedding special. I can;t emphasise enough what a fantastic job he did and I wouldn;t hesitate to use him again in the future."
Birthday 60th in Altrincham (WA15) on 14/12/2013
"James was fantastic. He was extremely helpful and polite at all times. We arrived at the venue very late so James very kindly offered to help decorate the room with us which was a huge help. Without his work ethic, knowledge and expertise the room would not have been ready or look as good as it did. His equipment was second to none and the lighting he provided was fantastic. It was placed all around the room which really made a difference. I would not hesitate to recommend James to anyone and if I was to organise another event I would only want him as our DJ."
Not specified in Telford (TF3) on 01/11/2013
"The DJ was really friendly and easy to talk to - really well mannered. He got on well with everyone at the event."
Birthday 30th in West Bromwich (B70) on 05/10/2013
"James was fantastic! I was worried as this was the first time I had booked him but he was really really good. There was a very mixed age group at my 30th but James had everyone dancing from 7:30 til 12! He played music which everyone loved and any requests asked of him. We would definitely book him again."
Birthday 30th in Great Malvern (WR14) on 29/11/2013
"James did a brilliant job, listened to what type of music we like and don;t like and played requests very quickly. Does a very good job with the lighting. Would recommend to anyone."

He played the correct music to suit the audience and interacted well when the children wanted to dance certain songs. Overall a very good DJ and genuinely nice guy! I will be recommending him and hopefully using him again in the future."

All my guests enjoyed the music. I will definitely be using James again and I would recommend him to anyone."
