Bob has been the first call wedding & party DJ in his native Manchester for the majority of his 15 year career in the music business. Although not specialising as such in any particular genre, Bob is able to cater for all types of musical tastes, and actively encourages audience requests.

Bob's music library is updated weekly and his current song count in excess of 25,000 tracks, including everything from golden oldies to modern chart hits.

In addition to residencies at some of the top venues in the North West, Bob has provided the music for many varied function types including birthday parties, charity evenings, corporate functions, private gatherings at rugby and social clubs (for the Dewsbury Rams Rugby Club and Yarnbury Rugby Club) marquee weddings, military events (Dishforth Airfield Officers Mess, Army Apprentice College Harrogate), theme nights (James Bond, 70s, 80s, Rock’n’roll etc), numerous stadium gigs (Headingley and Elland Road) and supporting many of Function Central's live bands.

You could not ask for a friendlier DJ. Great contact prior to the wedding. We submitted all our guests favourite songs prior to the wedding and DJ Bob played every single one on the night much to their delight. Bee, Wedding, Cheshire

Bob is able to play appropriate background music as your guests arrive, as well as music for dancing and is happy to work with Function Central's bands to create a seamless night’s entertainment. He can also liaise with your party planner and venue to make everything run smoothly on the day.

We recommend making a list of around 50 songs that you’d like Bob to play, and submitting these to us in advance. You can also make as many additional requests as you like on the night.

MP3s are played through a contemporary music player program installed on a laptop which is controlled through a digital fully featured controller.

Bob carries 1000s of songs across all genres (too many to list here), but for most functions he would play upbeat, danceable party tunes from the 40s - 00s.

When you book with us, we'll send you a song request form, where you can tell us which songs or genres you'd like Bob to play on the night, and also which songs or genres you'd prefer him to avoid.

Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“DJ Bob got the right balance for the event, mixing tracks from my playlist of 60 songs (including 10 African songs that I only informed him about a few days before) with other hits to keep the dance floor packed all night. He played from 7pm to 11:45pm with only a very short break and was relaxed about the food and drink. He accommodated several requests on the night, including a couple of obscure ones. Several of the party guests commented that they had really enjoyed the music. I would highly recommend him for events requiring a lively disco.”

Helen, 50th Birthday Party, London, August 2019

“The dj was brilliant, everyone was happy. He played different music and got people on the dance floor.”

Alex & Andy, Wedding at The Shankley Hotel, September 2018

“Hi Mike, firstly apologies for not writing sooner, but have been so busy this end. Neil and I wanted to say that our wedding went with a bang, the guitarist was sensational, our guests are still talking about him weeks after the wedding. His performance was beyond our expectations. Please say a big thank you to him from us and all of our guests; he really made our wedding reception. We would also ask you to pass on our thanks to the DJ, the kids loved him, his music choices were just right for our event. His personal contribution of glow in the dark bangles went down well, he interacted with the children beautifully and took pressure off the parents to have a bite to eat and a drink just at the right time. Again, many thanks for all your and their hard work. We would be more than happy to recommend you and the boys to potential customers.”

Tracey and Neil, Wedding, Birmingham, July 2018

“The DJ was excellent. He played all the music we suggested and tuned in to the taste of the audience immediately. I don’t think there was a moment when the dance floor wasn't full. The quality of the music system was fab and all the songs were up to date and what we had asked for and the DJ was friendly, polite and always open to requests. Booking through Function Central made arranging the entertainment very easy. You were very helpful with a vast choice of acts to choose from. Prices were very reasonable and everything down to how many electricity sockets you need was explained. Thank you for your help, the party was one to always remember!!”

Christiane, 18th Birthday Party, May 2018

“The act was very good, they were punctual and ready well before we arrived at the venue. The DJ encouraged the children to get up and dance which they enjoyed and he played the music we specified. The act was everything we hoped and would hire again. He was really nice and contributed to making our day brilliant.”

Sonia, Wedding, Hampshire, May 2018
