"James is brilliant!

From the very first time we met to go through exactly what we wanted to happen on the wedding day...to then exceeding already high expectations (based on his great reviews) on the actual day itself, he is excellent value for money.

James quite literally did all the running around in the background on our wedding day so that we could sit back and enjoy everything. Organising people for photos, engaging with guests, syncing up with our saxophone player, silencing the room for announcements/speakers, ushering people in to the correct rooms for first dances, speeches etc. I for one was very particular about the finer details of the planning but James took on board everything and executed it brilliantly, making sure we stayed on track so that the day would run smoothly.

Oh...and then he was a great DJ too!!! We gave him our playlist of must haves and they were all played alongside other songs that fit the theme we wanted. He is also not afraid to give advice e.g. leaving arch at midnight.

He really contributed significantly to making the day a success and would recommend him to anyone."

08/10/2016 | Horseshoe Cottage Farm, Cropston, Leicestershire

"James was brilliant from start to finish, making a site visit and talking to us about what we wanted then setting up the day before the event and being available throughout the whole event to provide music for the whole day as well as the disco in the evening. James is an excellent DJ, very intuitive to the needs of a multi-age audience in relation to music selection and as a consequence had us all dancing all night - a really brilliant "do" which everyone absolutely loved."

24/09/2016 | Ettington Chase Hotel, Warwickshire

"James was the DJ for our wedding celebration party following our destination ceremony. He was excellent! From helping set up our room (he has some great lighting) to getting everyone on the dancefloor, he made the night unforgettable. He was very friendly, even to my many family members countless requests! Certainly recommend. Thank you James!"

20/08/2016 | Fawsley Hall Hotel, Northamptonshire

"James was excellent. Always available and willing to give advice and help us with anything regarding the wedding. Very friendly and approachable. His website also allows you to add the songs you want him to play which is very user friendly. Would definitely recommend him to anyone."

"James you were fantastic from the 1st phone call, venue visit, help with all the forms, music choices for every stage of the wedding, setting up the day before, lighting at the venue, master of ceromonys and DJ for the evening!! I couldn't fault you at all with your knowledge, passion, commitment and presentation of the wedding. I would 100% recommend James Ross for any wedding or event.

James your a star and feel free to pass my number any day for references!! Thank you again Mr and Mrs Veitch."

07/05/2016 | Hose Village Hall, Leicestershire

"Could not be more grateful for James, we needed a DJ last minute and he more than DJ'd; he helped to set up, organise our guests, ensure that everything ran smoothly and on time (despite the bride being late!) We even caught him helping to cleat up rubbish throughout the day! He went above and beyond to help make our day special! Thank you James!"

02/04/2016 | Shooters Hill Hall, Shropshire

"James was excellent. He went out of his way to provide any assistance he could including visits before the wedding. On the day he made sure everything ran smoothly and directed people on what to do. In the evening his DJ work was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend James's services"

28/11/2015 | Sketchley Grange, Leicestershire

"To James, where can I start, you were fantastic. The day was so great and ran so smoothly and this was in no small part down to you.

You really couldn't of done any more. Starting at 6.30am to help set up tables to being last out of the hotel after midnight.

We would recommend you to anyone we hear who is getting married. So professional. Thanks so much, Steve & Paula Gollings"

Sketchley Grange Wedding

14/11/2015 | Eastington Park, Gloucestershire

"James was the only one who went to the extra effort to call me to find out about my day, my plan and introduce himself and that really shone out to me. He went that little bit extra and I like that. Throughout all the planning, James was very much involved or there when I needed him. James asked lots of questions about our music plan and most of it, it didn't even cross my mind how important they were so he was a very good guide for this.

On the day, well he was just fantastic. He arrived well in advance, set up and was involved with the preparation. Once the day begun, it was all go go go, but he helped us all out by organising everyone for photos, wedding breakfast etc. He's very assertive, efficient, polite and friendly and I literally can't thank him enough. I have already recommended him to several people getting married next year.

If you are looking for a DJ, then definitely book James Ross. I cannot fault him and his work ethic is just outstanding. Really great person and price is amazing. I certainly will be booking him in for future events. Thanks James! Your the best!"

17/10/2015 | Swan Hotel, Gloucestershire

"Dear James, Now that we are back from our honeymoon, we wanted to send a quick note to say a very big THANK YOU!!!! You were absolutely fantastic on our wedding day, and it was so reassuring to know you were there making it all run so smoothly! We were so impressed with how much thought and preparation you put into the day and how passionate you are about what you do.

Our guests kept telling us how well organised it all was and they clearly loved your music! We had such a wonderful time, and know that it only went so smoothly because of all of your hard work!

Thanks again, and I do hope our paths cross again in the future (perhaps at our Silver Wedding Anniversary!!) With best wishes, Helen and Chris.xxxx"

28/08/2015 | Wroxeter Hotel, Shrewsbury

"We could not have had a anyone better than James to provide his services as both MC, DJ and organiser for our wedding last year, sorry we should have provided this review sooner. He was not only helpful throughout but listened to what we wanted in terms of tracks played and being the host during the day, far better than the venue itself could have provided. No hesitation in recommending him for any couple young and older (as we are)

18/04/2015 | Wedding, Isla Gladstone, Liverpool

"James Ross was incredible. From first point of contact, James was very professional and took note of every part of our wedding. He was maticulous to every detail which assured us that he was going to do a great job. Actually could not have wished for any one better. We had several DJs contact us but none took the time to get to know us and what we wanted for our day as much as he did. We had guests telling us how he was very quick to respond to guest requests and was able to fit most in. Highly recommend James. If you want your event to run smoothly & keep your guests highly entertained he is worth every penny."

28/03/2015 | Standard Triumph Club, Coventry

"James was a brilliant DJ. For his music and for his kind and caring attitude as he saw me struggling with chairs and he helped/took them off me like a gentleman. His music he played was spot on what everyone wanted although it was a short set. He provided us with a wireless microphone and even joined in with some of our gags and jokes. Lovely person and a brilliant DJ. Would book again!"

12/12/2014 | Wedding, Duston Conservative Club, Northampton

"Lovely man who provided everything we asked for. Very professional and brilliant at what he does. Made our big day perfect. Would highly recommend."

05/12/2014 | Fordhouses Cricket Club, Wolverhampton

"I received an email from James Ross through the needadisco.com search site, local to the area James provided us with a package and aligned this to meet our budget requirements. Throughout the process James was warm, friendly and took his time to ensure that the party was as tailor made and personal as possible, giving options for specific special songs etc. we were able to be quite specific with the song choices and he didn't disappoint... We had a varied mix of 80s music which brought back lots of memories for the happy couple. James also MCd throughout the evening, combining both the important (buffet opening ha) punctuated with special messages and well wishes. James made an already lovely evening just that little bit better by being as through and personable as possible. I would highly recommend James Ross for all disco/MC needs... Thank you very much James"

Aberystwyth Wedding

19/07/2014 | Wedding, Belle Vue Royal Hotel, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion

"Brilliant. Didn't realise how useful a DJ would be for the whole day. Same with the position of master of ceremony, definitely you need someone independent from the venue and definitely you need someone experienced. James was great, he went out of his way for us, and I don't think our day would have been as good without him."

19/04/2014 | Wedding, Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield (SK10)

"James is highly recommended. You usually meet the DJ just before and then that's it but it isn't like that with James. He wants to help down to the smallest details and coordinates between the venue and everybody to make our wedding special. I can't emphasise enough what a fantastic job he did and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again in the future."

14/12/2013 | 60th Birthday at Altrincham Kersall Rugby Club in Altrincham (WA15)

"James was fantastic. He was extremely helpful and polite at all times. We arrived at the venue very late so James very kindly offered to help decorate the room with us which was a huge help. Without his work ethic, knowledge and expertise the room would not have been ready or look as good as it did. His equipment was second to none and the lighting he provided was fantastic. It was placed all around the room which really made a difference. I would not hesitate to recommend James to anyone and if I was to organise another event I would only want him as our DJ."
