“Living the dream” – A British DJ in France, Summer 2016 – A UK DJ Abroad

I am a highly experienced British DJ looking for gigs in France, summer 2016,17 – {of course, I still DJ in the UK, http://sounds-crazy.co.uk } From my base  near Excideuil, Dordogne, though I can and do travel most places within reason, (going to Toulouse for the first time, this year).

After an extremely successful “For one night only” tour -2012, and “tour de France 2014” I am keen repeat my sucess in 2015 – 2017. I’m looking for gigs of any sort, where I can provide music for weddings, parties, village or town events, charity discos etc etc. I did 22 in 2014, including one all French, and two half English, half French weddings that were fantastic!

I am happy to quote for most areas, but the distance will affect the price, so please ensure you have a realistic budget! – The price may have to include accomodation and fuel charges – France is a VERY BIG Place! Please use the get a quote form link below

I will provide sound and lighting equipment, and all I would need at the venue is a 5 or 6ft table, one or two good electrical outlets ( i will have french plugs) and cover, if the weather takes a turn for the worse. NOTE: Please ensure your neighbours and / or the Maire / etc. are consulted BEFORE planning any outside event, as amplified recorded music is NOT to everyone’s taste.

Charges will depend upon calendaring, size of event / venue, number of likely guests and running times – but Please be quick at get a quote ( form link) as I aim to have my diary as full as possible. Prices depend upon services required, function duration, and distance / travel & accommodation considerations (France IS vast), so please get in touch for a quotation?

Update: Feb 2016
The header image is from a UK gig for 350 Teenagers – I would not normally takes this amount of sound or lights to a typical wedding in France – see the gallery for some shots from France – Gigs.. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t take / bring,  a lot of gear if the venue, amount of guests, or client required or requested it, but it does put the price up.

Update: July 2015

After see the reaction to full on English ‘shires style Church music at a service in a small French Church, I have decided it is only fair for me to offer my services for the service music to others! Having sung at many weddings, I know just how special good music at a service can be.
Just because you are in France, there is no reason why you can’t have Hymns on the organ, come in to the wedding march and leave to the Royal Wedding Music recessional if you want to !!
