Introducing DJ Ash
4.3 out of 5 rating from 42 reviews in the last 3 years

I have been a DJ since 1976 and in that time I have developed into a high quality professional DJ skilled in choosing the right songs for the crowd in front of me.

I use modern professional sound and lighting products for an impressive light show.

I always dress for the occasion and aim to arrive in plenty of time to set up and be ready for the required start time.

I carry a large selection of music for all ages and from many eras and genres to please mixed crowds. I'm a firm believer on taking requests on the night and I'm also happy to take reasonable playlists in advance too.

"Hope I got his name right because he was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and he was very helpful and freindly. Only problem was he did not have our pre-sent music choices that I had e-mailed to you but he was early enough that we were able to go over them before guests arrived."

"Kevin Dj was lovely but the karaoke system didn’t work until 11pm, we had booked from 8pm until 1pm. When it did eventually work we had a great night. There was no interaction from the Dj to our guests. Did send our thoughts to the boss who said he’d looked at everything and couldn’t think what we wanted from him. 60th birthday party, not ruined but could have been a whole lot better."


DJ Ash responded to this review as follows:

"I think this review is very unjust, we discussed this via email when you were on holiday, and showed you evidence of the 1st karaoke song being played at 1040pm prior to this there were speaches and your guests arriving with the 1st karaoke requested at 1015pm, as we also said in the emails it was very hard for keven to interact with the function was in a pub and people next to the dj desk and the dj was worried if he left the decks the equipment would be tampered with, and as you said there were alot of randoms there, Kevin interacted via the mic rather than going around the pub, you did state in your emails that the music was not old and again we sent you a copy of the nights playlist from his histor that showed 99.9% of the night was songs from the 60's to 80's. the landloard from the pub said it was an exeptional night and have had 2 bookings from the night."

"When I originally spoke to Mark, I was under the impression he was the guy doing the disco and I took him at his word that all would go well. He told me on the week of the event it would be a different guy but that they were all good DJs. The guy who arrived didn't speak at all and I had to prompt him several times. The initial music played was inappropriate for the event, I had emailed a comprehensive list of tracks to choose from and although he did play some of them and the dance floor was busy at times, I felt I could have hired equipment and done a better job myself. There was no interaction from the DJ at all and the only time he spoke was to announce the buffet was ready. He did play the last 3 songs I asked for so that was the only thing in his favour. He also hassled me about the balance of the payment which had already been paid by bank transfer as agreed with Mark. He wasn't happy about that at all and even phoned me on Sunday wanting prove we had paid the money. Thankfully there were enough great people there that the party was great fun for all but I definitely would not recommend this company to anyone."

"Th DJ Mark was excellent, and everyone had a great time, however, we requested some Scottish Country dancing, which didn't happen. To be honest, we didn't notice this till after the event. I also sent the DJ company a couple of MP3s with recordings of my family's bands, and these weren't played during the evening. We also made out an extensive playlist, and some of the music played on the night weren't on that playlist. To be fair though, I did say to Mark before he started to use his own judgment as to when to play things, but I meant from our playlist. Don't get me wrong, it was a great evening, it was just that a few things were missing that we had asked for."

MIKE INFORMED ME THAT HE HAD ONLY BEEN GIVEN THE GIG A FEW HOURS BEFORE IT WAS DUE TO START, AS THE DJ THAT WAS SCHEDULED TO PLAY AT OUR PARTY COULD NOT MAKE IT, FOR WHATEVER REASON,,,. THIS IS ONE OF THE MAJOR REASONS FOR BOOKING A LARGE DJ FIRM, THEY HAVE THE SUPPORT WHEN NEEDED, IF FOR WHATEVER REASON THE DJ CANNOT MAKE IT.

"As it was kids party I had to ask for song to be stopped as due to bad language to be told that's chart music. It was my child that noticed and it came on 3 times and dj didnt notice.There are radio versions. Music choice would have been more suitable for teenagers. Disappointed as when booked I was assured that the music content would suit age groups. Had to request songs for kids. It seemed that he was unfriendly didn't introduce himself on arrival,set up played music,got paid was easy money. Have phoned to complain. Would never use or recommend"

"This company was very easy to deal with- Mark was easy to contact, friendly and helpful. Our DJ on the night (works for Mark) wasn't quite so outgoing, but was friendly and did interact with us (he gave us a demo of his shuffling, which was greatly appreciated!) The music while we ate was great, but I feel later on was a little "dated" for us. While we may have mostly been older than the DJ, as a group of Zumba ladies, we are used to dancing to music from many decades, but predominantly more recent ones! Music from the past couple of years would have gone down great- however this is partly our fault as we should really have requested more earlier on. All in all, a great DJ-would do it again (and may do!)"
