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...

 

Absolutely fantastic day. Danced all night to brilliant music. Ross was great and very professional. Highly recommend and will definitely use again for future events. Thank you so much.

Mandy & Sam Meringolo

THE BEST!! Ross was the DJ for our wedding and was so amazing, we could not have asked/wished for any better!! He also provided uplighting which was beautiful! Such a great selection of songs played to get everyone up which is exactly what we were looking for, the dance floor was busy all night and bouncing! Definitely made our wedding a memorable and amazing night! Captured great photos of night once the photographer had left. So easy to communicate with as I planned a special father/daughter dance to a song written/sung by my dad which I sent to Ross and he played for us. Would definitely recommend absolutely amazing!!!

Bob & Anne Davies

A big big thank you to Ross who made my 50th 80’s themed party absolutely wonderful. He played a lot of the music I had asked for previously, he played requests, floor fillers, slow dances and come Ceilidh music for a wee jig....I think I was on the dance floor all night, I highly recommend him and get in there early for your parties as he is so popular!

Jill Walpole-Pender

Hi Ross, We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful time that was had by everyone at our wedding. From start to finish we could not have asked for more, simply fantastic. Hearing you play the bagpipes for guests before the ceremony and for Kathleen's entrance was magical. The music and lighting in the evening was once again second to none. Everyone commented on how helpful you were at accommodating their last minute requests, thanks for that. We could not have wished for a more perfect day and you played a huge part in that. So once again thank you Ross it was our pleasure to have you at our wedding, you are an absolute gentleman.
