1. Planning Your Disco
In the build up to the big day you will have use of our online music requests service to let your DJ know about any special music requests you would like played such as a traditional first dance or perhaps a father and daughter dance at weddings. This gives us a feel for your preferred taste in music, upon which your DJ will expand and elaborate to create a suitable mix of music.
We are always available by phone or email to answer your questions and offer advice.
2. How Do I Book?
1. Contact us for a quotation
We will happily email you a no obligation quotation. Please remember to include:
Type of equipment/service you require:
Event times (start/end):
Event location (including postcode):
Your contact details (name/address/phone):
2. Once you tell us that you wish proceed with the booking, we will ask for a £95 non refundable deposit to secure the booking within 7 days of the invoice, or settle the full amount if your event is within the next 7 days.
3. The remaining balance (less the £95 already paid) needs to be paid no later than 7 days before the event date.
That’s it. We’ll see you on the day!
3. How Do I Pay?
Online Banking/BACS – Our account details are shown on your invoice. You can use these details to make a payment using your internet banking service or BACS. Please include your booking reference number or invoice number so we know who the payment is from.
Cheques –Our postal address is shown on your invoice. Make cheques out to “Disco Nyts” and write your name and address on the reverse so we know who the payment is from.
Bank – You can make a deposit at any branch of Llyods Bank. Our account details are shown on your invoice. Please tell them your booking reference number or invoice name so we know who the payment is from.
4. Liability Insurance and Safety Testing
Whilst we have our own Public Liability Insurance of £10 million, we always strongly advise all event organisers and those planning a wedding to consider taking out insurance themselves.
5. How Long Will It Take To Set Up?
For setting up sound and lighting equipment hire there really is no fixed time period we can suggest, as one event might require a single spotlight taking a few minutes and the next event could take up to 5/6 hours. We will discuss timings with you during the planning stage.
Please remember to also allow time for packing away at the end of the day. Typically this takes 50% less time than setup, but again depends on how close we can get the collection vehicle.
6. Power Requirements
All of our equipment runs on standard single phase 240v 13A UK Mains power outlets. As a bare minimum we require two wall socket outlets within five meters of the equipment setup location. We always carry our own extension cables and protective cable covers.
7. What Happens On Your Wedding Day?
Platinum Disco Packages normally require a morning setup as it takes us approximately three hours to carefully install the disco, the dance floor, the PA system and the up-lighting around the room.
Gold Disco Packages are often also available for morning setup when our schedule allows, these take approximately two hours to setup.
Silver Disco Packages are generally setup in the evening, one hour before the disco is due to begin.
In the evening, we start things off gently with suitable background music allowing you and your guests to relax and chat. Many of your guests may not have seen each other for a long time so we are understanding of this and initially keep the volume levels lower, gradually moving into the disco.
Your DJ is more than happy to make any announcements throughout the evening as required. For weddings this would typically involve the cake cutting and traditional first dances. What we won’t do is waffle away on the microphone all night! We blend in your pre-arranged song choices, and always welcome further song requests from your guests on the night. Building the tempo and seamlessly mixing the music as the night progresses. All of our DJ’s have decades of experience gained at bars and nightclubs as well as weddings and private events. This means we have a huge variety of music from across the last six decades, right up to the latest releases.
8. Can I help choose the music?
Yes, of course you can. We always welcome your input and suggestions (requests). Please see the dedicated Music Requests page on this website for full info.
9. What will my DJ wear?
We often get asked this question. The simple answer is that our DJs will dress appropriately for the occasion.
This typically means shirt and trousers and/or a suit jacket where appropriate depending on the event. If you have a specific requirement please do mention this at the time of booking.
Whilst delivering and setting up the equipment, our DJs and technicians will often wear jeans/shorts and a polo shirt, then change into their evening clothes once set-up is completed. For other more casual events trousers and a branded polo shirt can often be suitable throughout. Again, we always aim to dress suitably for each event.
10. Space Requirements
As we perform at so many different types of venues we have become skilled at fitting our equipment into all manner of weird and wonderful spaces! However the standard dimensions below should give you an idea of the typical space requirements. As you would imagine, the smaller Silver Disco Package is more suited to fitting into corners discreetly whereas the standard Gold Disco Package makes more of an impression, almost filling one side of the dance floor area.
Silver Disco Package floor space approximately: 3m (10ft) wide by 2m (6ft) deep.
Gold Disco Package floor space approximately: 5m (16ft) wide by 3m (10ft) deep.
Platinum Disco Package includes the Gold Disco above and adds the Starlight LED Dance Floor in either 14ft x 14ft, 16ft x 16ft, 18ft x18ft or 20ft x 20ft (dance floor size allocated on availability and suitability for the individual venue).
