About Dj Darren Jewell & djdarrenjewell.com

Darren started Dj'ing in the early 1990's then turned full time professional Dj in the mid-late 1990's.

Our first bookings were mobile discos playing a variety of music as pub & wedding bookings, that paid for newer club music that Darren also did guesting Dj work until he became a full time club Dj 1998 (only income).

Many years passed & around 2004-10 the club scene was starting to change from clubbing destination music to pop-music for most, & the clubs have smaller capacities eg. Darren was a main-room destination Dance & R&B Dj in The Millennium Complex Plymouth (was warehouse/oz/blondz) 2800 capacity & it was full to capacity, but now clubs are around 200-400 capacity as the golden age of clubbing was no more, so the pay decreased.

Darren had to diversify so playing club & party/pop/cheese (60's to chart music) nights again working as a freelance Dj/subcontracted to entertainment agencies & friends that had venue entertainment contracts. 

Still working as a freelance Dj one of my friends/club-agent asked me if I would join the wedding side of his company as well? Looking at wedding playlists most high-street club/bars would expect the Dj to play similar music overall, hence we started to do weddings again so bought myself a good mobile disco (our "Classic Disco"). 

A few years passed & balancing club/bar & wedding bookings for friends/agencies, but was getting quite a few large room/number of guests weddings, the problem with this our classic-disco in loudness & lighting is the same as almost all wedding discos as designed for up to 150 guests with 30-50 people dancing in front of the speakers so not suitable for large rooms as disco speakers are only designed to fill a dance floor with good sound & further back in the room loose all its quality/sounds bad. We had a moral dilemma on our hands as do we say or claim what most wedding-disco saying it will do the job (when it would clearly struggle), or do we spend 3-5 times more money on stage/event specification equipment to do the job correctly as we would have to charge more for its upkeep & costs etc. knowing agencies/freelance/subcontracted work would not pay or charge there clients extra? 

What we have done is is split our Dj brand as Dj Darren Jewell is all freelance/agency/subcontractor bookings (Dj or Dj with "Classic-Disco"), & this webpage is Darren's own company djdarrenjewell.com our/this webpage clients can only book our event-specification large room shows from, depending on your & your venue needs?

This has had some beneficial advantages as all bookings as eg. Our premium shows can do the largest ballroom at the Assembly Rooms, Bath with ease as clear high-definition sound in all the room (it does not loose any quality further back), so as club bookings have fallen we seem to be doing more "club-festival music new or anthems" nights in large posh venues/prom/birthdays/weddings with our premium shows = We take the club to the venue, as not everyone wants Abba/cheese all night... (or only the first hour to please the older generations). 

Our freelance/agency/subcontractor work Dj or Dj with "classic-disco" is doing well as many extras eg. photo-pod & love letters etc. 

No matter your music choice or guide we can do, if you have a large room/150+ guests or want more of a club/festival/anthem mix book us directly from this webpage as that is why we have djdarrenjewell.com, our premium shows can only be booked from this webpage = Not available to/from any other companies/websites.

From Your Wedding Breakfast Room, Then Your Party Room.

The Difference Between Our Classic Disco & Premium Shows:

The Two Pictures Above Are Taken In The Same Venue Both Can Have The Rustic, Black, Or White Booth.

The Main Difference Is The Black & White Picture Is Our Classic Disco So Being The Same Specification As Most Wedding Discos In Sound dB & Lighting It Only Is Aimed At Entertaining People On Your Dance Floor, As The Speakers Are Not Designed To Push High Quality Sound Far Back So Your Guests Further Away From Your Dance Floor Will Only Hear A Loud Bass, & Tinny Top (They Cant Push The Vocals Back Clearly) So Sounds Intrusive/Noise & Uncomfortable For People Further Away Form The Dance Floor So Not Nice To Stay. The Lighting Is Designed To Flood The Area.

The Colour Picture Is Our High-Definition Show, So In Specification Outperforms The Classic Disco In Every Aspect, The Sound Is Crystal Clear On The Dance Floor & All Of Your Room, This Venue Room Is In The Shape Of A Cross With The Disco At The top, The Sound Can Be Heard Clearly In All The Room So Your Guests Further Back From The Dance Floor Can Enjoy The Music & Socialise. The Lighting Has 2 Types As Just For The Dance Area We Use The Same Lights As The Classic Disco (What They Are Designed To Do), The 4 Other Lights Go Around Your Room Highlighting Its Beauty & Can Also Shine On The Dance Floor, All The Lighting We Have Programmed As Early Evening Or Buffet Time The More Powerful 4 Lights Shine Above Peoples Heads So Not Intrusive, & The Lighting Mood Constantly Changes With Your Party Mood From More Relaxed To "Peak-Party!"... Its Like An Event Show Not A Mobile Disco, So Enhancing The Beauty Of Your Venue. 

The Like Most Discos Specification Our Classic Disco Is Just Designed For Smaller Areas/Small Dance Floors, & Our Premium Shows Can Do Small Rooms Too Ballrooms In Events Specification. 

Our Hybrid Disco Pictured In Wellington Barn, Calne.

Useful Information: 

Planet Friendly:

We try our workable best to be more environmentally friendly as our van is Euro 6 (not enough range on electric & charging points), All Our Rustic services are all made from recycled pallets/Rustic Love Letters, Rustic Dj Booth, Rustic Post Box,
Our Photo-Pod Victoria was Ally's nana's grandmother clock that has been repurposed full of new technology (it cost more to convert than buying a new photo-pod), our White Love Letters were bought from a Love letter hire company that was closing to look after a sick relative, but we have fully restored them so they look stunning.

Fully GDPR compliant:
The information you give us is used by your instruction then destroyed after your booking, unless stated otherwise.

Music & Licensing:

We buy the music we need from iTunes (99p per track), or kindly get sent promo's from record labels/producers club-bookings.

Dj's cannot legally stream music in licensed venues this includes wedding venues, as the Dj & venue could be prosecuted so we cannot legally use eg. Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Youtube, Sound-Cloud etc. Or rip/extract music from streaming platforms/websites/sharing.

This is why for weddings we ask for a 15-25 song playlist so we have the songs you want on your night, as some venues have no WiFi, or Phone signal etc. so we cannot buy music on your night.

All our music is legally bought so its a far better quality sound eg. Apple-Lossless 99p per song, Wav-Lossless,

our minimum standard is MP3 320 (mainly club promo's & standard disco bookings). We spend many thousands £ every year as you are paying for a professional legal company with high quality clear music sound. With our best/ballroom sound-system you can clearly hear the difference between the best lossless sound & an MP3 lower quality sound. Sadly allot Dj's do "rip"/steal music from file-sharing sites & streaming services that is extremely low quality & illegal, as your venue can be fined/loose licence, & the Dj/person playing the music,

because they are all classed as personal use licence, not business/commercial use eg. has a bar selling alcohol you legally cannot stream.

For Non U.K. or music that is not top 40 chart U.K. we might sometimes ask clients to supply the music, as not available in the U.K. to buy, or a different version of the song needed that was released in eg. India/China & not in the U.K.

 

Back-Up Plan:

 

Its Your Wedding!

This Level Of Back-Up Is Only Used For djdarrenjewell.com Premium Shows/This Webpage Direct Bookings.

We have planned for every eventuality that could go wrong as do not know any other company or Dj service that carries our level of back-up.

The picture below shows us using 2 laptops, Laptop 1: Runs our music software Native Instruments Traktor 3 Pro-Plus, & can also do lighting at the same time with back-up SSD. Laptop 2: Runs our lighting software & can also run Native Instruments Traktor & backup SSD. Both laptops also have Virtual Dj Loaded so if Traktor has an issue we have a double backup (software update), both Traktor & Virtual Dj we pay monthly subscriptions for as to have the latest versions. 

The Dj booth & laptops etc. get used on every disco/mobile event, as it just the grade of sound & lighting changes.

The music mixer on laptop 1 we use Native Instruments S4, & laptop 2 Pioneer 2 channel controller (we use this also for Karaoke). The lighting hardware boxes & transmitters we have 2, & have spare audio transmitters & receivers. 

The disco speaker stacks have a right stack & left stack with lighting, so if any of the stacks lighting & sound do fail we simply turn up the other stack (sound is complicated as adding right channel to a left channel you only gain 3-5dB, so not much louder). On our Premium Shows Hybrid & High definition its designed to easily fill eg. The Assembly Rooms Largest Ballroom, Bath. At half volume as we have to limit the output to 70% as it gets uncomfortable (30% working headroom left).

We always carry outdoor Kopex event power leads eg. 20m long (these mainly get used for safety in marquees).

Transport: Our van is euro 6 diesel & we check the oil/water etc. every week or before more than 2 hours travel, full service history, member of RAC & Green Flag for our van/listed Dj use like our insurance. 

If things get bad on your day & break down (this has never happened), we use exactly the same backup as all large Dj companies as a pool of good Dj's as there is always more than one is available for quick cover (we pay the emergency Dj costs that will charge much more money, why some take deliberate time off).

Like I said we know NO other company with this much backup, on your booking date or getting to your venue.

Our High-Definition Show Use 4 Much Brighter & Focused Medium+ Size Moving Heads & Can Pic Up Dust Particles In The Air Without Smoke In Larger Darker Rooms eg. The Roman Baths Reception Hall Picture.
