He put our minds at ease emailing us the day before giving us an update, coming and finding us on the day to offer congratulations and talk us through our first dance and then then sending a message afterwards including a short video of the night. Would 100% recommend him for any event "

"I would highly recommend John Johnston Entertainment if you need a disco. His rates were very reasonable and the service provided was excellent. My only criticism was that the music was a bit loud but I should have used my initiative to ask John to turn the volume down slightly. I'm sure if I'd asked, then he would have. Everyone had a very enjoyable evening and there was a good variety of music, old and new. I'd like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to John."

John Johnston Entertainment responded to this review as follows:

"Thank you for your positive feedback. It was great to meet you, and your lovely family and friends. The weather wasn't great outside but we kept warm and the dance floor full. Thanks again. Kind Regards JJ "
