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!!”

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

Myself and my partner Ryan can’t thank Ross enough for being part of our special day.

He was our piper for guests arriving, our ceremony and during our photos. He did an absolutely amazing job and the sound of the pipes was absolutely incredible a special part of our day that we will always remember.

Ross then was our DJ at night after our meal and he accommodated all our song requests to the best of his abilities and also has a do not play section for any songs that may be hard to hear on your special day which I think is a fantastic feature!

Ross was in constant contact which put us at ease and was absolutely incredible with moving our date following the pandemic postponing our original 2020 date and did this without taking additional cost or without question.

Everyone had a fantastic night and Ross also took some lovely photos of our guests and ourselves dancing at night which I thought was a lovely last touch.

If you are considering Ross at all we would highly recommend he is both an incredible piper and DJ, very reasonably priced for his time and what he brings to your day and just an all round lovely guy!

Thanks again Ross 😊

Lauren & Ryan Kerr
