Meet The Team
About Dave and Belinda - The Happy Sounds Mobile Disco Team
Dave and Belinda – Husband and Wife.

Your first enquiry will be welcomed by one of us. As we both receive enquiries not only to our computer but to our mobile phones we can respond accordingly, even when we are out and about!
If you have booked us for a wedding, We’ll BOTH meet you in person for the pre-wedding consultation.
On the day of your event, we will BOTH arrive early to setup and both stay until the event finishes.
And you won’t miss us either as we will both be wearing company shirts that bear our logo.

We are NOT an agency!

In recent years we have watched a number of our competitors change they way they operate in that they secure and distribute events like an agency.

– Typically there will only be one main DJ who will take multiple bookings for the same date.  (Over booking)
– He/She will DJ the most profitable event themselves (Typically a wedding).
– They will then allocate (Or tender out) the other bookings to young/less experienced DJ’s, Charging them commission to work YOUR event!

The expectation is to pay a little more and receive a better service… but that is not always the case with the agency format.

Our Ethos

Conversely, We believe if you pay a little more, you should receive a superior service.
When you book with Happy Sounds Mobile Disco, you will get DJ Dave and his wife Belinda… TOGETHER at the same event!
The choice to only DJ one event at a time is built upon our extensive reputation as Oswestry’s leading Professional DJ service. Quality over quantity.
Without the ‘additional DJ” distraction we can focus 100% on your event to provide the quality service you read about and so rightly deserve.

Proving how serious we take our work… Neither of us work a 9 – 5  ‘Day Job’ or any other employment for that matter… We are 100% Happy Sounds Mobile Disco
Its exactly what you are looking for… A DJ that is well rested, alert, receptive and ready for you!

The DJ… A.K.A  ‘Disco Dave’
About Happy Sounds Mobile Disco - DJ Dave

So where did the nick-name ‘Disco Dave’ come from?
With the high number of child parties we DJ, We occasionally see some of the same children again and again and because of this they have dubbed Dave the title of “Disco Dave”

Dave has always been passionate about music. From 2014 to 2016 he regularly produced 2-hour dance music sets (3 times a week…midweek) for a global internet radio station. Multi tasking was always an essential part of the job as the radio station linked to an internet chat room. Dave would regularly comment on chat room topics during his mixes keeping the broadcast relevant, fresh and interesting to its listeners.

Lets go back further…

To 2001 when Dave first entered the mobile DJ “circuit” working for ‘Black Cat Disco’
Black Cat Disco was an established DJ business ran by ‘DJ Ali C’ which found its feet and gained momentum in the late 90’s. Although primarily a mobile disco, they held a residency in Gibsons night club (Oswestry) for several years before moving residency to the Five Bells (Oswestry) and continuing the great work every weekend until its closure in 2017.

Skills

Working with Black Cat Disco taught Dave the required skills to be a successful DJ such as reading the crowd and learning his music collection.
Importantly recognising the need to Adapt his music to the ebb and flow of an ever changing dance floor.
In summer 2017 Dave hired DJ Ali C for a DJ Collaboration…The pair went back to back mixing for an absolutely bouncing wedding party!
Big shout out to Gaz Williams for letting us Collaborate at your wedding party!

So where did it all begin for Dave?

Dave like any teenager loved his music. When simply listening to music wasn’t enough, he began to DJ using Vinyl, Practising at length!
Dave learnt how to mix music on Vinyl by DJ Ali C and consequently Dave considers DJ Ali C to be his mentor.
Happy Sounds Mobile Disco - DJ Dave and the early days
With a penchant for Dance, Trance and House music Dave subsequently found inspiration in big named DJ’s.
For that reason Dave attended many DJ events and finally in 2002 meet his idol Judge Jules at God’s Kitchen (Below)
