“His strong cumbia beat with his very skilled accordion play reminded me of parties in my wife’s hometown of Corozal. I could close my eyes on Sunday and imagined that I was in Corozal or at the beach with his music on in the background and people dancing in a beach side restaurant. The atmosphere at the festival was exactly like that of a festival in Colombia.”

Last week saw me back at one of my favourite wedding venues in Essex. Gaynes Park. As winners of The Wedding Industry Awards, this stylish and contemporary barn plays host to weddings of all types throughout the year, offering exceptional service. It’s therefore no surprise we love playing here! Wedding Disco Gaynes Park Rock!
On Saturday we arrived early afternoon to set-up the disco before the bride and groom had arrived with their guests from the Church. Gaynes Park has an excellent layout where the dance area is actually to the side and concealed by curtains, so we remain anonymous for the day. We provided sound systems for the announcements and wedding speeches on the day also, this is a standard service we provide.

Why Pick Daniel Jones DJ to be Your Wedding DJ / Indie Wedding DJ?
On your wedding day the evening reception completes your perfect day. When selecting your DJ you require; someone with experience in the wedding DJ industry, who appreciates your taste in music and will cater their set towards you, using modern equipment ensuring quality of sound, a reliable DJ who won’t let you down and leave you ringing around for a replacement DJ at the last minute.
I won’t discriminate, if your wedding is a religious ceremony, civil ceremony, civil partnership, I believe everyone is entitled to a party.
I am a specialist in Indie music however I can cater to all musical tastes and needs.
I will come and meet with you to discuss your wedding requirements, I want to get to know you and find out what your musical likes and dislikes are. If this is impractical due to work commitments or because you live a distance away, I am here on the phone, email and Skype to get in touch.
What Kind of DJ am I?
This, for most of my customers, is where I shine, I started out as an indie DJ spinning the likes of Libertines to Daft Punk to Jimi Hendrix etc. and this is my specialist subject. For people who want a non- cheesy indie wedding DJ who won’t chat on the mic all night and plays cracking music (see my top ten records list) whilst still able to please Aunt Maggie and play some “classics” in a non-cheesy fashion then I am your man. I will come and meet you and discuss what to play and also importantly for some music connoisseurs what not to play.
I still buy vinyl and can do a vinyl set at your wedding if desired for those who want to see a DJ spinning music (please get in touch for more information)
I can also cater for many other musical tastes and genres, yourself and guests may have including modern chart, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s. Pop, Funk, Disco, Rock, Reggae, Dance and any other genre you can think of.
