Lighting

Setting the Mood

Lighting at an event is typically something most people overlook when booking a mobile dj, as we all know every mobile dj around the world has an arsenal of lighting to fill the biggest of party venues…

But what do you need for your event?

MJs take on this lighting issue is that ‘simplicity’ is key. A few well placed and controlled lights will do far more for creating that ‘essential party vibe‘ than a whole bank of random lights doing their own thing.

Dotty green and red lasers, while simply fab, used in the wrong way or inappropriately can lead to some pretty upsetting wedding photos if the DJ forgets to turn that particular fixture off during the first dance, and its projecting all over the bride and groom!

The essential message here is that lighting can make a huge difference to your event, in mood, in pace, and has a huge impact on your wedding photos…!

MJ uses a range of well selected scanners, moving heads, computer controlled custom animation lasers and up lighting to set the mood of your party, with complete control of every fixture at the touch of a button.

Please check out our media page (below) for videos and photos of our past events to see how we have delivered lighting for our past customers.

Media

Captivating on the past, this collection of photos and videos has been put together to demonstrate the kind of equipment MJ uses as part of his roadshow.

MJ has covered a complete cross section of venues, all shapes, sizes and configurations. The business has a vast range of high quality sound reinforcement that will provide the right amount of volume based on the kind of event you may have in mind, this extends to a vast range of lighting to ensure the room looks amazing, a total package you may say!

Welcome Mr & Mrs Harvey, the happy couple…

A superb day was had at Channels Chelmsford (Essex), rounded off with and evening of dancing and lots of fun. An emotional first dance that extended to a ‘father / daughter’ dance accompanied by something completely different!

The DJcam was roaming throughout the evening capturing snippets of the party.

Health & Safety

Health & Safety

To ensure your function is a memorable one for all the right reasons, smiles, lots of fun and dancing the night away…
There is always a fair amount of planning & paperwork compiled behind the scenes to minimise any risks during your event.

Some basic points MJ wishes to share with you

  • Adequate time allocated to set up and clear away (time allocated per venue – duration will be provided in quote)
  • Guests will not frequent the same space during set up or between venue / vehicle for their safety.
  • Your guests will not be required to assist the DJ and operators in setting up or clearing away.
  • All Cables will be kept a safe distance away from your guests and neatly fixed down

Various certificates maybe requested by your venue events manager.

  • Risk Assessment & Method Statement (completed on request for specific venue – Additional Fees apply P.O.A.)

*The PAT certificate enclosed is a selection of my most popular equipment – if your event requires different equipment, a specific schedule will be produced.  A specific equipment schedule can be provided once your event has been quoted & site surveys have taken place.

Risk Assessment & Method Statement will be provided post site survey.

Notes for you venue

Your venue shall provide a minimum of 2off 13A standard UK 230V power outlets within close proximity (up to 5M away from the DJ Booth) suitably protected with RCD/RCBO breakers – and be able to provide their site test certificate before the event.  This will be included in the safe systems of work schedule and will include a complete method statement with supporting risk assessment.

Any further questions, please get in touch, and feel free to visit the HSE website for info about portable appliance testing (PAT).
