Wodes DJ Service testimonials

Matt was great to work with, both in advance of the event and on the night itself. Matt has a great personality on the microphone and worked hard to ensure the dance floor was full and everyone had a great time. Whatever your event, you will not be disappointed using Wode’s DJ Service

Jack Taylor – Kingston upon Thames – retirement party

Matt was very professional and organised, and he did a really good job of playing the music we wanted (including some unusual Brazilian tracks we requested) in a sequence that worked well to keep our guests dancing late into the night.

Beatrice and Valdemar – Kensington – wedding

Thank you so much for last night. I had so many compliments from everyone saying what a fantastic DJ I’d booked. Well done you. x

Amy Oldham – Ewell – 30th birthday party

Matt provided the most wonderful disco and music for my son’s 18th birthday party. The set-up went smoothly and all the music that we pre-requested was played. Even when some guests made some other requests they were easily accommodated by Matt. The party was a huge success and I’d say that was down in part to Matt and his music.

Michelle Cobb – Twickenham – 18th birthday party

Matt really knows how to make a party! I recently had my 40th and with quite a diverse range of people in my not so large house it had plenty of potential to be polite at best, awkward at worst. Matt had people on the dancefloor (as I now think of the space the dining table has reclaimed) from 5 in the afternoon until 3 in the morning. We had so much fun I really cannot thank him enough. I said it to him at the time and I will say it again here, Matt MADE the party. Hire him!

Glenn Cosby – Exeter – 40th birthday party

Absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much for an amazing night of great tunes, a packed dance floor and ensuring some crazy dance moves I’d never seen before fill the room! You made our night.

Josh and Laura Williamson – Brighton – wedding

Thank you for doing such a brilliant job and for providing some great music at the party. A lot of people have commented on the music. I know I chose it, but you were the one who put it all together. Everything was great and you helped to make the day a special one.

Joy Irou – Twickenham – 60th birthday party

Matt delivered a superb disco at my party. While listening to my preferences early on, the dance music was excellent and got a wide range of people up dancing. Unprompted by me, many friends congratulated me on my ‘do’ and said how much they had enjoyed it and thought that Matt’s music was excellent.

Neville Rainford – Kingston – 60th birthday party

We contacted Matt to DJ at our wedding reception. Matt is a great guy, and he made sure that the requests we made got played at just the right moment. We asked for some pretty wide ranging tunes and Matt contacted us to make sure that between us we had all the songs and the playlist covered. Matt was able to suggest what works well, and gradually wound things up from beautiful background reception tunes to stonking floor fillers that ensured that the dance floor was packed all the way till kicking out time. He threw some surprises into the mix that went down really well. Matt is very professional with a love for music and getting the right sound, Matt will make sure your event goes off really well. We got so many good comments about Matt on the night, and I would definitely recommend contacting him.

Brian and Karin Scott – Stoke Newington – wedding

Matt was the icing on the cake for my 40th birthday party. He took the time to visit me a month or so beforehand and we talked at length about what I wanted played. Although I had a rough idea of a playlist, he took the huge selection of songs away and worked out what order would work best. This was no mean feat as I had the venue booked from 6.30pm to midnight.

I had provided a shortlist of definites, which all got played, but more importantly, he put the songs in an order that suited the build up in mood over the course of the evening, reaching a crescendo of anthemic tunes towards the end of the night, with even those most dance floor resistant guests finding it impossible to resist gyrating on the dance floor!

Matt is very personable and a great character, with an infectious sense of humour, while also being professional and courteous to everyone throughout the evening and I can’t recommend his services highly enough. Cheers!

Paul Maguire – Kingston upon Thames – 40th birthday party

Matt made our 60th Birthday party – he kept the crowd up and dancing most of the night! We so enjoyed the time we spent with him before the day choosing our play list and he just about got everything in which was brilliant. I expect it is difficult enough sorting out the music for just one client – but he had to deal with two ladies who had very definite ideas about what they wanted! He managed to keep us both happy and our guests loved the music too!

All our friends and family commented on how great the music was – there were many tunes that meant something special to us – I never forget my cousin and myself singing Hi Ho Silver Lining at the top of our voices – we had danced to that when we were teenagers and it was a true blast from the past!

If you want your party to go with a bang then get Matt in to help you out – music is a really personal thing and we all have tunes we share memories of – there was no need to keep running up to ask for a particular track – we knew he had it in hand (and computer!) so we just got on with enjoying ourselves. Matt’s service is exceptional and I would recommend anyone to get him in if they want to know they are going to really enjoy their special event.

Thanks Matt – here’s looking to our next one!

Mary Graham and Jan Mahon – Kingston upon Thames – joint 60th birthday party

We found Matt to be very professional and reliable, with a big, likeable personality and a snappy dress sense. It was great to have the pre-wedding meeting so Matt could get an idea of the sort of music we like and how we wanted the music to fit around the day. As well as including all the songs we really wanted, Matt made plenty of suggestions for great songs we hadn’t thought of but that fitted the day perfectly. Clearly a lot of effort went into tailoring a playlist just for us rather than just playing usual wedding stuff and that really added to making the day enjoyable and special for us.

We asked Matt to deliver the wedding announcements which he did in a confident and entertaining way and he managed the timings perfectly to make sure the day flowed. The choice of music played throughout the meal was classy and unobtrusive and created the perfect atmosphere.

The evening disco was enjoyed by guests of all ages and there was plenty of dancing throughout the evening. After the event, we were even given a memory stick with a copy of the full playlist, which is a really nice touch because it all goes so quickly on the day you don’t have chance to enjoy listening to all the music!

Matt put together the perfect soundtrack to our wedding and we would highly recommend him as your wedding DJ!

Steve and Louisa Green – Banstead – wedding

Our wedding was a coming together of English and Turkish families and we needed some traditional Turkish folk songs, which we provided and a blend of floor fillers, classics and pop. Matt took the time to get to know us before hand, our guests on the night and the overall vibe of our celebration. Polite to all guests and welcomed requests. He certainly gave a great show and kept the evening lively and in good spirits.

Karen and Umit Hamit – Windsor – wedding

Our outdoor wedding on a pebbly beach off the coast of Sussex was in danger of being one of those “man this is why I hate weddings” affairs due to the horizontal rain blowing off the sea but our man Matt stepped up and kept the packed marquee rocking with his witty humour and crowd engaging style.

Before and after the wedding dinner Matt was recruited as our MC and a steady stream of lively banter kept the guests smiling. His affable manner ensured the event moved along in an orderly yet fun progression and he went out of his way to make sure that all those who wanted to give a speech or offer advice to us were able to do so easily and comfortably.

The rest of the night was devoted to dancing of course. A well-considered mix of old and new music appealed to all, and even some of the older folk who you normally wouldn’t see dancing stood up and shook their money makers to some of Matt’s dance floor beats.

After the wedding we were congratulated on how well it turned out, despite the rain, and we haven’t the slightest doubt that without Matt our wedding wouldn’t have been the rollicking success it turned out to be. We heartily recommend his services.

Ken and Sally Perepelkin – Climping, West Sussex – wedding

We just want to say a big thank you for delivering some fantastic tunes at the launch of Transition Town Kingston! You were the life and soul of the party and ensured all our guests were enjoying themselves on the dance floor. It must have been a tough crowd, with so many age groups to cater for; we were very impressed by the range of your music selection!

We will definitely be recommending you to other groups, family and friends.

Best wishes.

Transition Town Kingston Steering Group – charity event

We hired Wode’s DJ Service for our wedding reception in Twickenham in August 2009, for around 130 guests. Our budget wasn’t the biggest but Matt took a lot of trouble to put together a great show.

His attention to detail was the most important thing – he spent time with us to shape the playlist and incorporated our favourite songs while making suggestions to get the mood right. On the day he was on time, self sufficient and most importantly kept everyone dancing – we had a real mixture of guests in terms of ages and cultures but Matt delivered a great mix of classics, newer tunes and the occasional surprise which flowed really well and got everyone onto the floor at some point in the evening.

A lot of people tell us that ours was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and our DJ was a massive part of that – his hilarious costume was the icing on the cake. We would have no hesitation in recommending Matt as someone who works with you to find the mood you want and uses humour and charm to make your party come together.

Majeed and Ruth Neky – Twickenham – wedding

Let’s face it – DJing for a gay wedding with guests between the ages of 12 and 70 from all over the world was never going to be easy. But somehow Matt kept the dance floor full all night. He covered a great range of music and was outstanding at gauging the crowd and keeping us boogeying. He knows what a wedding reception needs and plays the classics but he keeps it fresh with some very funky less known music which went down incredibly well.

Matt is a kind bloke who is very easy to talk to; he will take the time to really talk to you to find out what you want for your occasion and who is coming. If he does for you what he did for us, Matt will take the trouble to come up with the playlist you only wish you could put together yourself.

On the night he is punctual and self-sufficient – you won’t have to worry about a thing but your moves. I recommend Wode’s DJ Service very highly indeed. Both for being such a pleasure to deal with and for the great night Matt will deliver.

Glenn and Rob – Huntstile, Taunton – wedding

My 30th birthday was a fantastic night and one that I have Matt to thank for – he is an exceptional DJ. Matt is passionate and devoted to music, positive, confident and professional. Every request, need and client ‘quirk’ was met with sensitivity and enthusiasm.

I would trust him implicitly with an event of any nature and highly recommend him as a DJ.
