The RK DJ Story

At RK DJ, we specialise in providing a professional and reliable entertainment service for Weddings, Parties and Corporate Events across Dumfries & Galloway. Established over ten years ago, we have performed at a huge number of Weddings and Events across the region and beyond, but where did it all begin? In this blog, we will tell you a little about the history of RK DJ and how we have ended up where we are today.

It all started in 2007 with a love for music and flashing lights. After buying some disco lighting online and digging out a sound system we had in the house, I put together a small disco setup in my parents living room. Whilst this was great for the first couple of weeks, my parents soon got fed up with me constantly practicing at full volume!

Around a week later, I got a phone call from a member of the Dalbeattie Primary School PTA. Their DJ had let them down for the school’s Halloween Disco the following evening and she had heard I was just starting up. Just like that, I had my first gig and RK DJ was born!

For the next year or so I continued to provide discos for school events, friend’s parties and family events. Then, in late 2008, I DJ’d my first Wedding. It was a small Wedding for a lovely couple in Creetown, but it was the beginning of something big for RK DJ.

As they say, the rest is history.

Even now, ten years on, I still get that buzz leading up to an event just like I did at my first Wedding. I believe this passion and commitment is essential to delivering a truly professional Wedding DJ service and these qualities are as strong today as they were back then. But don’t take our word for it – here’s what some of our previous clients have got to say about us…

Ross played at our wedding last week and from the minute we booked him we couldn’t fault his service. He played to our company and the dance floor was never empty all night. Fantastic tunes and great entertainment.

Bob & Anne

“Ross was perfect from start to finish, always prompt in replying to our queries and the playlist for our wedding had everyone up dancing and having a great time. Very happy bride and groom!”    

Andrew & Johanna

“FIRST CLASS** top DJ. Excellent service from the day we booked Ross. I was emailing him on a regular basis and was always very prompt at responding. Our guests were able to choose their own songs and the evening playlist was fantastic, the floor was never empty. One thing I do remember about Ross was his lovely manner and his big smile. Thank you for making our evening perfect!”

Diane & Ian

“A huge thank you to you Ross for a brilliant night last night at our wedding. The music selection you picked for our guests very much suited the crowd. You helped make the planning of the night so easy which was a big plus for us, we can’t recommend you enough. A fun fab night!!”

What Customers Said...


Ross piped for our wedding and then was an awesome DJ at our reception - he played our favourite tunes, had everyone dancing and was so lovely to deal with. Thank you Ross.

Amanda & Robert Copland

Ross was the DJ at our Wedding on the 22nd of June - he was brilliant. He made sure he got people dancing, as well as adding some Ceilidh dances in here and there! The online requests system is a great idea and he made sure he took them all on board and kept us organised too! I would highly recommend him! Thanks again Ross 

Becky & Martin Shankland

Ross was our DJ and ceilidh caller for our wedding on 29th June. His requests system worked extremely well and he did a good job getting people up to dance. His set up and lighting added to our decor and Ross himself has been a pleasure to work with on the run up to our big day. Thanks again, Ross!

Ashton & Bobby Osborne

We cant recommend RK DJ enough. Ross was the DJ at our wedding and our only request was that the dance floor wasn't empty and everyone had a great night and Ross didn't disappoint with this. Through the planning of the event to the actual evening, Ross was always on hand and very friendly. There was something for everyone - including some ceilidh dances and even some dirty dancing! If you are looking to book a DJ for an event don't hesitate in booking RK DJ. We couldn't have wished for a better night and our guests have all commented on how great Ross was! Would definitely recommend and book again! Thanks again for an incredible night Ross!

Lucy & Owen McFarlane

We had RK DJ Mobile Disco for our Wedding at Hetland Hall Hotel last week. Excellent DJ he did not disappoint the music was spot on! Stayed in contact with us from the minute of booking with him, played all the requests. Excellent service, would highly recommend!
