Sheffield Wedding DJ (from £350)
Greg's DJ services are perfect if you are looking for professional and tasteful wedding DJ services in Sheffield and the surrounding areas.
Greg deals exclusively in Wedding, Birthday and Corporate Event bookings and works with each client to create an evening's entertainment which is tailored to their needs, including a bespoke playlist which will keep your guests dancing all night!
Despite his passion for live music making Greg is extremely proficient behind his DJ decks. He has a love for all aspects of music production and recording and when he is not DJing at functions and weddings he teaches students the science and computer based recording techniques of music technology as Head of Music Technology at Birkdale school.
Greg DJs using the top quality Pioneer XDJ-R1 mixer and turntables (Pioneer being considered as the 'go-to' name in the professional DJ industry) and uses Mackie Power Amplifier Speakers, with optional sub-woofers for larger functions. He has a large selection of LED lights (including the KAM Powerbar, Parbar and two moving head LEDs) and also various flashing lights & lasers so is sure to find the right ambience and party spirit that you need for your function.
Songs & Selections
Greg has a library of over 200,000 songs available as standard at each performance so will work with you to create the perfect playlist for your wedding. He sends out comprehensive paperwork beforehand so that you can have as much (or as little!) input into the evenings music selection as you wish. Some clients send through a bespoke list of songs which they would like the evening to be comprised of (this is fine!) and others will simply tick a few boxes on the form to indicate the eras that they would most like to hear, e.g: [70s] tick [90s] tick [00s] tick [modern] tick (this is also fine!!!)
Greg will usually find most song requests well before your wedding day and prefers to take most of your requests in advance to help formulate an awesome DJ playlist for your wedding! However, you and your guests can also request songs on the night.
If you are concerned that one of your friends may request a special track on the night that may not be in a standard DJs playlist (perhaps an Ibiza anthem evoking memories from your fantastic holiday in 2003!) then simply let Greg know. For each wedding Greg can take out a 'Content Unlimited' package on his software (as long as the venue that you have booked has wifi!) which will give him access to 15,000,000 - that's 15 million!!! - quality song files instantly. So what will this service cost you? Greg says "the Content Unlimited package is a fantastic deal to ensure that any client never misses that key song request on the night again. It costs me £10 per event to subscribe for this service, and a few minutes of time to set up, so I charge it out to the client at ... £10"!
Being a DJ is not a 'one size fits all' type title. A clubland DJ or bar DJ will have a very different audience demographic to a wedding DJ and hence their needs (and their music collection) will be very different to that of a professional wedding DJ. Most people, when looking for a DJ for their wedding reception, are after a modern DJ who understands the latest music trends but can also bring into their arsenal Motown, Disco and Dance songs from all decades to keep all your family & friends happy. That's exactly what Greg offers, a wedding service which is new, upbeat, professional and beatmatched but utilising music which can be appreciated by an audience as diverse in age range from 7 to 70.
Greg follows the 'club DJ' mentality of beatmatching, mixing and blending songs but instead of using club Trance or Hip Hop anthems hew achieves the beatmatching using a wide selection of Pop, Disco, Motown, Modern and Retro anthems. Greg's fundamental goal is to maintain the rhythm and drive of the evening, synchronising the songs with the audiences heartbeats and gradually cranking up the tempo as the evening drives on!
Greg states: "Are you one of those people, like me (!), who hates DJs talking over all your favourite songs? I'm confident on the microphone and happy to make any big announcements that you may need during your evenings entertainment - but otherwise I prefer to let the music do the talking! Like you and your guests I come dressed to each function in a sharp suit and not in a promotional T-Shirt!"
Greg's Wedding DJ services are available in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Barnsley, Rotherham and all around South Yorkshire.
Our DJ services are unique in the sense that they can be used in combination with any of the other musical services that The Greg Bish Blueprint Wedding & Function Band have to offer. This could give you a great discount on a performer for your ceremony or wedding drinks. Alternatively Greg could perform a one hour acoustic guitar and voice set to begin your evening in style and then liven up the rest of the night with his DJ services.
All of the music examples that you hear on the website have been recorded, mastered and edited by Greg. However, there are no specific DJ mixes available for your listening pleasure .... yet!
