DJ live and DJ for Events
If you’ve been searching DJ live and DJ for events then you’ve come to the right place. The DJ live concept is quite new to the event market fusing live instruments with DJ’d backing tracks. With DJ live you can have a full party sound with a small set up. What’s great about the DJ live set up is that it blends perfectly into a straight DJ set. So you can move from DJ live to DJ and back to DJ live throughout your event. Clients have been looking into the DJ live option over recent years as an affordable way to set the party off. And it also means you can fit the DJ live group in a small area.
DJ Shel – DJ for weddings and events
If you’d prefer you also have the option to hire DJ Shel to DJ at your event. With a DJ set up you’ll get to hear your favourite songs played throughout the day. Before your event I will find out exactly what sort of music you like and put together a tailored made playlist pool of music that will feature on the day. It will then be my job to read your guests and make sure I’m playing the right music at the right time to create the perfect atmosphere every step of the way.

What are clients saying?
‘We saw Sheldon and his trio perform at two friends weddings and had such a great time, we knew we wanted to book him for our special day. Now, since having him perform at our own wedding we have experienced the joy of both sides, great fun on the dance floor as well as the ease of working with him to prepare for our day. He and his trio were, professional, dynamic to adapt to changes in the flow of the day, charismatic, and they looked sharp! We had a fabulous day! Thank you.’
Chloe and Mike – Wedding – September 2017
With a small venue we couldn’t have a large set up with a full band and we were worried we wouldn’t get maximum impact, but this wasn’t a problem with Sheldon and he far exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Communication from the first enquiry, right down to the day after our wedding was professional and friendly. He understood what we were wanting for our day and we had a full dance floor all night! The early part of the reception was classy with the acoustic guitar and saxophone and later in the night Sheldon delivered song after song as our DJ. But by far, the best part was that Sheldon had taken the time to learn our first dance song and perform it. It isn’t often that the bride and groom are surprised on their own wedding day by someone else! Sheldon was definitely a key part in making our day so special and would recommend him to anyone looking for live music for their event or wedding.
Laura and Nick – Wedding – February 2017
We’re so glad we had Sheldon DJ at our wedding. He played every single one of our favourite tunes and threw in his own ones which blended perfectly with what we wanted. His mixing was seamless and he kept people of all ages on the dance floor from the 1st track to the last. He is a great guy and very easy to work with. If you want a wicked DJ for your party, then Sheldon is your man!
Adam and Susie – Wedding – December 2016
Hi Sheldon. You were fantastic to deal with; so professional and reliable. You managed to do 5 jobs in one evening :- MC, DJ, pianist, guitarist and singer! You were always calm and took on board all our requests and needs from start to finish. Thank you so much. We would happily recommend you to play at our friend’s functions in the future.
