I have been a full time professional wedding DJ in Phuket for more than 10 years and have performed at over 1000 events including almost every possible mix of international guests and music styles. I am proud to hold close working relationships with the leading wedding planners in Thailand as well as popular wedding venues and hotels. I also support popular beach clubs, hotels, bars, restaurants & clubs with events not related to weddings.
Instagram is the best place to find examples of my work. You will find regular updates including photos and videos and links to the planners and venues.
WhatsApp is preferred. You can add me with +66888197253. Alternatively Email, Instagram, Facebook etc is also fine.
Absolutely. How involved you want to get is entirely up to you however, I do have a lot of experience so aside from ‘special songs’ or specific songs you would like to hear on the day, I really only need to be pointed in the right direction. A small sample list for dinner and one for dancing is fine. Even without that, I would be prepared for pretty much any situation and will read the crowd accordingly.
Just a day or two.
Just the names of songs is fine. Most couples send Spotify playlists which is ideal.
A large percentage of weddings & events in Phuket require non-English language songs and I would sometimes need some support from your side to ensure I have the ‘essential songs’ prepared.
Extremely. I can do whatever it takes musically to keep everybody happy.
I’m not a professional MC and so for things like welcome speeches, complicated introductions of bridal parties that involve snippets of music for each couple, orchestrating games, etc – wedding planners will normally recommend that you select a member of your group to be the MC. That way it’s always a lot more natural, relaxed and fun although I understand for American groups especially, they usually expect the DJ to do this. I am able to announce things like cake cutting, first dance, buffet opening and basic introductions to dinner, etc. Alternatively, I can recommend & introduce you to professional MC’s.
Some weddings I start pre-ceremony as guests arrive. Others I start at dinner and occasionally after dinner when the party starts.
I have a professional sound system suitable for small to medium sized events including professional wireless mics, speakers, subwoofers, and basic lighting. It’s ideal for functions in a small area like a small villa, restaurant or ballroom. Events that require set-ups at multiple zones like ceremony area, cocktail area, separate dinner area & party area I am not able to support.
I have some basic PAR LED battery powered up-lights that can add some colour to a room and can also light up a dancefloor and ensure your photos and videos look a lot more impressive than a party with no colored lights.
Of course. However, sometimes I may look for your blessing if a guest requests something obscure that might kill the party. So I can either use my own discretion or look for approval from you if I’m not sure it’s a good idea.
Confirmation in writing is perfectly fine, and I will go ahead and lock it in my schedule. Payment before, during or after the event is fine. I am also happy to hold a date for you and let you know if I receive another enquiry on that date and so offer you first refusal.
I have backup equipment with me at all times to ensure events run smoothly.
It will absolutely be me.
Every wedding is different, but I am able to play traditional style wedding classics and also more contemporary music depending on the crowd. Obviously I am able to adapt to different nationalities too.
Being a wedding and event DJ in Phuket means that every event has a different mix of people from different parts of the world. There are very few demographics I don’t have experience of. Some groups I have more experience with than others. I’m happy to tell you about my experience with particular genres and nationalities.
Left to my own devices, there are definitely some ‘go-to’ styles for different parts of a wedding. Pre ceremony would usually involve acoustic covers or sometimes orchestral music if requested. Cocktail hour would usually be more upbeat acoustic covers of popular songs or sometimes a more tropical house vibe. Dinner music is usually a mix of classic and contemporary songs – depending on the demographic. For the party I am able to cover all styles and genres to keep a dancefloor alive, ranging from classic wedding songs to modern styles including commercial and mainstream music and styles like EDM and Hip Hop depending on your preferences. It’s quite common to cover more traditional styles and classics early on and move to a couple’s preferred genres later.
I am highly experienced with sound equipment and also with Phuket wedding venues and so I am able to offer guidance depending on the scenario.
I don’t require breaks.
If we are using my sound and lighting equipment it will be much earlier in the day and before guests arrive. If the equipment is provided by a 3rd party or venue, my setup time is very quick – just a few minutes, although I will of course set up in plenty of time.
Over the phone or via services like WhatsApp is preferred. Certain times of the year it’s just not possible to find time to meet and I find it’s better to have everything in writing as opposed to informal conversations where details could be missed.
Having worked in the wedding industry in Phuket for 10+ years, I’m well known to all vendors.
Weddings are often considered to be the most important day of people’s lives and so there is no room for failure. Wedding planners and venues must have absolute trust in their chosen vendors and entertainers and can not tolerate anything less than the best as well as absolute reliability – their reputations and the success of their events depend on it. Whichever DJ you consider must be able to show a track record of long term relationships with leading planners & hotels. If there is any doubt in your mind, I always feel that the best people to seek an impartial professional opinion from are the wedding photographers and videographers. They see everything throughout the day and rely on the DJ to be able to create the perfect atmosphere and a great party. They need great party photos & footage and can’t leave without it!
