“DJ Karlo was a pleasure to work with. He turned up early and was ready well in advance. He read the audience brilliantly and his sets were great.”

10

“Truly amazing!! Excellent music, really got my party going, HIGHLY Recommended!!”

10

“We found DJ Karlo for our wedding after another DJ let us down at short notice. He was extremely helpful and responsive, was happy to discuss playlists for the event, arrived at the agreed time on the day of the event and did a fantastic job. His equipment is top quality and many of our guests commented on how good the DJ was. Would highly recommend!”

10

“Hi we booked DJ Karlo last Saturday for a family party. DJ Karlo's set up, prep, playlist, helpful manner with accompanying live band was all spot on. No fuss, no ego just spot on focus on making the night great for everyone. thank you.”

10

“What a breath of fresh air to find someone who honours a booking, listens to your needs, offers a range of equipment to suit the size and type of audience, sets up in a timely, orderly unobtrusive fashion, plays the most amazing mix of music that keeps the dance floor chock full for the whole night. Thank-you DJ Karlo so much. The DJ can make or break an event and you totally made ours!”

10

“Great DJ, we had DJ Karlo for our wedding reception. The dance floor was full all night and he played banger after banger! Would highly highly recommend! Thank you for making our reception so great!”

10

“DJ Karlo was fantastic at our wedding! We had some slightly niche music we wanted and he took the time to research and find tracks that suited perfectly. He was communicative and super supportive in the run up to the day which was a huge help as we were organisiour wedding remotely. On the night, DJ Karlo stepped up and helped everything to run smoothly. He even announced a speech for us when our MC fell through. His equipment looked and sounded great too. Highly recommend - can't fault him!”

10

“We booked DJ Karlo for our wedding because he doesn't just do weddings, he has DJ'd top london nightclubs, student nights, charity events, private parties and weddings. This gives him a unique ability to read the crowd and play the right music at the right time to really get the room going. He's also very particular about the sound systems he uses, always updating his speakers and amps to ensure any venue he plays at is never underpowered and fills the room with a quality clear sound, not tinny rubbish you can get from some mobile DJ's with old speakers. This approach also appplies to his lighting set up. Highly recommended!”

10

“We had a wonderful low-key event in August and the music DJ Karlo provided was the icing on the cake. He helped us to sort out the music for the ceremony as we are a bit hopeless at that kind of stuff. The music on the afternoon and evening itself was amazing. We were mostly a group of 80s teenagers and boy did we relive our youths. We danced long and hard and sang our hearts out. The only complaint we had the next day from our guests was that they had dreadful blisters and their feet were aching so much they could hardly stand!! Testament enough I think!”

10

“DJ Karlo is a great, really personable guy. The music he played at our wedding appealed to all ages & tastes and kept the dance floor full all night. He’s totally easy going and plays exactly what you ask, making it personal to your tastes. Would highly recommend!”

10

“Fantastic music and so professional. I would recommend him for any event or wedding planner. A joy to work with. Thank you!”

10

“DJ Karlo is without doubt the best DJ I know for any occasion! We didn’t hesitate to book him for our wedding party. He is and was able to keep everyone dancing for several hours varying the music types throughout depending on who was dancing! He is a really nice guy who accommodated all the favourites requested by lots of people throughout the night!! 5 stars!!”

10

“DJ Karlo was fantastic! His set up and and music choices were perfect and got everyone dancing. He was in contact well in advance and listened to all we requested. Arrived with a smile, and couldnt have been nicer. Many thanks DJ Karlo :)”

10

“Fab DJ for our young farmers ball! Really knew how to work the crowd and was happy to play whatever we asked for, definitely recommend!! Not to mention he's a lovely guy!!”

10

“We’d like to formally thank you for making our ninth Annual Ball a great success and a thoroughly enjoyable evening! Your hard work and support is truly appreciated. Our guests had a fantastic time dancing to your set, as I’m sure you could see! We're pleased to tell you that so far the Ball has raised a net figure of over £47,000, which is an incredible amount! You can be sure that this will make a tremendous difference to the children and families we help throughout Staffordshire and South Cheshire. Thank you again for helping to make every moment count, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”

10

“Excellent DJ! I attended a friend’s 40th bday party - played some great music, charts and house. Kept us dancing all night. Would highly recommend.”

10

“I just wanted to say thanks so much for organising the DJ on Saturday night - he was fantastic (and cute!) and really made the party exactly how I wanted it to be. The music was perfect and he was friendly and happy to take requests - I hope we weren't too much of a mental bunch of people for him! Please pass on my thanks - anyone who can get my mum on a dancefloor for the whole evening is worth every penny!”

10

“We always find it an absolute pleasure to work with the DJ. He is an excellent addition to our production team, showing 150% professionalism at all times no matter what.”

10

“Thank you very much for making our day even more special. You did a fab job with the music and everyone appeared to have a brilliant time. The lighting looked great and your song selection was just spot on!”

10

“Thanks for making a great contribution to what was a truly amazing night. With people there from, England, France, Germany, Venezuela, Holland, Columbia, Portugal, Belgium, India, Spain, to name but a few the night was a fantastic party and we are still getting messages saying this was the best wedding people have ever been to! Thanks so much for all you did on the night, you are top of our list for the next event we plan and we have been asked for your contact details by many people!”

10

“Just a note to say DJ Karlo was absolutely fantastic, sounds cheesy but no other word would do. He was totally spot on and earned his crust for sure. He arrived so early he was able to have proper food and his equipment, lights etc. were all very impressive and professional. He also spotted changes in the mood/taste of the dancers. Please can you pass on our thanks and let him know we would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone!”

10

“DJ Karlo was so good! He played all our requests and got everyone in the room up and dancing. I would definitely highly recommend him!”

10

“Just a quick note to say how pleased we were with our DJ on Friday night. He was so relaxed and accommodating. He went really with the flow of the evening and helped to make our event enjoyable for all of our guests. We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again!”

10

“The DJ was an exceptionally nice man who willingly played all our oldie music and requests, and was charming to all the guests - we can strongly recommend him and would use him again ourselves.”

10

“I would like to thank you very much for arranging the DJ at our wedding. We had a great time and it went really well.”

10

“Excellent DJ - judged the mood of the crowd and expertly wove the many requests with other tracks to make a great night! Great mixing, fab tune choice - thoroughly recommended!”

10

“Hi Ali, Gopal and I would like to thank you very much for providing us with the DJ and Phoenix on our wedding night they went down a storm, our guests were constantly on the dance floor strutting their stuff, everybody loved the band and they sounded fantastic. It was a shame that we were running extremely late going in to the evening reception but both the band and DJ managed to turn the room around in record time. So could you please pass on our personal thanks to them both for us and hope we will be able to use your services again in the near future.”
