About Music First
Music First provides live sound including PA hire, sound engineering and get-in / get-out for all sizes of event, supporting bands, concerts, festivals, open mic nights and any other sort of music event. We also provide more general PA for public events, indoors and out, corporate and public. This includes parties, conferences, stage and theatre shows, public meetings and sporting events. We offer special rates for charity and fundraising events.
For private events, we can provide disco equipment including full digital audio and lighting, up to full mobile disco service with a DJ. Again this can be indoors or out, at any size of event from a home garden party up to a giant wedding celebration. We prefer to serve you and make sure everything is perfect, but if you just want equipment hire we have everything you need for the perfect event.
Above all, we remember this is your event and we are here to provide you a service. Before we accept any offer of hire we will want to talk with you about your event, your aims and what you want. If it is music based we have a collection of thousands of tracks dating from pre-1950s to the latest promo chart and club releases, updated every week.
What drives us is quality. It is not just how much noise you can create in a space, but the right type of noise at the right volume. You do not want feedback in the middle of a speech or performance, you don't want to be deafened at a disco but you should be able to feel the music. You want to hear the vocalist, not just a booming backing track. Years of experience running live events mean we understand different acoustic environments and purposes and will be able to specify the right PA and settings every time.
We work with all sorts of clients:
Private - mobile disco/DJ and sound or light hire for birthdays, weddings, parties.
Pubs and clubs - full service hire for open mic nights, events, bands, club/DJ nights.
Musicians - sound and light hire and studio recording for soloists and groups.
Public events and charities - full service or equipment hire for seminars, conferences, public meetings, ceremonies, fetes, sports.
Corporate - full service or equipment hire for team building, social events, presentations and conferences.
Steve made our event perfect! We met a few times prior to the big day, discussed our requirements and song choices, and the day itself couldn’t have been better.
Can’t recommend this guy highly enough!
Response from Music FirstHi again, guys! Thank you too for making my job easy and fun. I also had a great night and glad you had such a perfect day. It was truly a pleasure to be part of it and I wish you every blessing in your married life. Thanks, Steve
Communication throughout was perfect, with clear understanding of my DJ requirement and how to meet it. Additionally I was offered the extra service of organising the sound for the entire evening covering the needs of the live band and dance group. Directly speaking to the band members this off loaded the stress from myself considerably!
On the day of the event Steve was very helpful in setting up and remained flexible as the timings changed. I believe having the sound delivered by Music First made for a seamless transition through the different stages of the event right through to the early hours of the morning. Enjoyed by all.
Overall a very satisfied customer that will be recommending Music First to other events organisers at work.
Response from Music FirstThanks very much, Richard. I also had a great night and Reload (the band) were brilliant to work with! Your guests all seemed to have a great night and I am pleased I was able to help be part of that experience for them. Thanks, Steve
Literally cannot be flawed in any way. Very professional service and outstanding value for money. I would recommend to everyone.
Response from Music FirstThank you, David. I had a great night and would be more than happy to help again at any time. Thanks
Steve was absolutely brilliant from the outset. Very easy to communicate with and thorough, I felt completely confident it would be a great night before the event. He really cares about the atmosphere he creates and brings lots of lighting equipment with him too. Very professional and fantastic value for money, will definitely booking him in future. Perfect for weddings & milestone birthdays parties!
Response from Music FirstThanks, Shannon. I also had a great time. You did Jay proud with a great party - the room looked great and I think everyone seemed to have a fun night.
We were satisfied with the whole planning for the evening. Steve made everything easy to arrange and was brilliant on the night. Very helpful and friendly, would happily recommend him to friends and family.
Response from Music FirstThank you Eileen. I think you and Pete are amazing! Many congratulations again on your diamond anniversary.
We thought that the music could make or break our wedding and so we were careful who we chose. Steve was more than helpful and the wedding music is still commented on by all our guests. The music was flawless and we could not have asked for a better service. We are going to recommend Music First to everyone!
Response from Music FirstThank you Heidi. You guys were great and made my job so easy! Everyone was in a great mood and I had a brilliant night too.
Great DJ with easy to use online event management and song request system. Would use again.
Response from Music FirstThanks for the kind review Matthew. I also really enjoyed it and wish you both the very best
Glad to find a DJ at short notice after being let down by the band we had booked for my sons 18th. The online booking system was easy to use and the comminication via email was good to sort things out. The mix of music on the night could have been better as the age range was 18-60 and at times the dancefloor was empty, but having said that everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Response from Music FirstHi, Emma. Glad we could help out. Everyone seemed to have a really great time and the fancy dress was brilliant. So funny to see all the teletubbies dancing together! It's always difficult playing a mix for both young and old so I was trying to cater for the older folk only at times when the teens and twenties were outside taking a break, but I did think the mass conga at the end showed off everyone together having a great time. Thanks
Music First were such a great help from the very start and all the way through the process right to the event its self at which they were so good and we could not have done it without them.
They were a pleasure to work with and we will definitely be using them again should we require the services they provide and also recommending them to others.
Great Job and thank you.
Response from Music FirstHi Andy. We also had a great night and what a success for your very first Whitney's Got Talent show. There were some great acts there and a couple I'd definitely like to book in the future for other events. I already have even bigger and better ideas for next year's competition, in terms of lighting and stage setting, so here's hoping you are going to run it again! Thanks
From initial request through to packing up at the end of the event, Steve was super. Great communication. Effective booking system. Arrived early for event and laid on a great show. Guests had a fun time. Even got my son dancing which is a feat in itself. Would definitely try to book Music First again.
Response from Music FirstThanks, Garry. I'm glad you had a great time. I try to put professionalism above everything else so you can be confident that the night will go exactly as you want and be a great success. Thanks, Steve
