What we do...
Hello, I'm Ian Barrett and thanks for visiting the site. I run a contemporary Dj company specialising in bespoke full wedding discos, ceremony plus reception music and PA hire for the modern discerning music aficionado who requires something unique, offbeat and different from the norm at their event. I love good music from all genres and guarantee attention to detail and professionalism in all aspects of my work. I've many years experience in doing full day and evening weddings without a band and can arrange a setlist in conjunction with you to entertain all your guests.
The Alternative Wedding Dj ethos is to provide clients and their guests with a night to remember on the dance-floor by playing an eclectic set of music that they (and I) are passionate about. Like any good meal, the dance-floor diet requires a balanced mix of different tastes and elements to make it as satisfying as possible; rock, indie, funk, soul, hip hop and electronica are all part of the smorgasbord that will be served up on the Dj platters.
Whilst I am a massive music enthusiasts I'm not a snob and find that cheese often has a place in playlists but I know when and where to introduce it! However, if you're looking for a night of wedding standards, top 40 and chart music I would be happy to recommend a suitable Dj for the job. I am clear and concise on the occasion the mic is needed but don't over use it like some stereotypical djs of old.
With a vast collection and musical knowledge spanning the 50s to today and including all genres, I can tailor a playlist with you before the event or let me do my thing - just don’t expect to hear me play anything that has it’s own dance! I take a lot of pride in attention to detail and customer service in order to make your big day or event one to remember. See my testimonials for proof.
