Dave was the DJ at my 80’s Club Tropicana party on Saturday and everyone had a fantastic night. Highly recommended, would definitely use again. Great tunes, great attitude, great communication. 5* - Vanessa
We recently used Disco Dave and Tornado Event Hire here at Reeds Rains for a corporate event and have used them for a number of conferences and parties previously. Dave and the team are consistently always professional, welcoming and excellent in what they do. The stage set up, the lights, the music, the photo booth and all the added extras went perfectly as always.
I would highly recommend Dave and the team. Thank you for helping to make our events so successful.
Vikki Mayers | PA to Steve Hardaker,
Dave is reliable, professional and approachable. He instinctively played the perfect music for our party. The photo mirror was a huge hit with everyone and we received the photos from the evening on a memory stick to remind us of all the fun as it unfolded. A winning combination for our special celebration. Thank you so much Dave.
Sorry it has taken so long to respond. Thank you for all you did for the party. The lighting was amazing and music great. It made the house look ready for a party and dance floor was full. You were very efficient and helpful – great service.
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. All of my party guests enjoyed the music and I was pleased that you catered for everyone’s (different) tastes. I had some great feedback on the night from some of my friends who loved the music you played. We were really happy that you were so professional in what you did. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who’s looking for a great DJ. Thanks Dave - we had a fantastic night!
Thank you so much for providing the disco for my husbands 50th birthday at the weekend. He wanted an 80's party as he loves the music from this era and you delivered above and beyond our expectations! I can see why you have a passion for 80's music as well! Our guests were dancing almost from the minute they arrived and the dance floor was never far from being full. So many people commented on how good the music was and how many memories it brought back which was exactly what we wanted. You even play
ed the best selling 12 inch of all time which along with your commentary my husband loved :-)
Everyone had such a good evening and your music and DJ style helped make my husbands birthday the very special occasion he wanted it to be.
Very enjoyable night had by all, Dave catered for exactly what we asked him for (70’s Disco) and the music was an ideal fit. All requests were taken and the karaoke went down a storm.
Very friendly and accommodating service provided and the equipment used worked perfectly in the surrounding we were in. Overall an experience that exceeded expectations.
Many thanks for Saturday night, it went with a real swing and our guests commented on the great range of music you played. My hubby was really surprised and couldn't take it all in, he especially liked the 'something from every decade' - and lets face it, there are quite a few decades to choose from! Thank you once again, I know who to call on for our next soiree!
kind regards, Vicky
Hi Dave, Thank you so much for helping to make my birthday party go fantastically. Everyone including us really enjoyed the music and the lights, it really felt like you were in a nightclub. Should we have another party we will definitely be in touch.
BIG SHOUT FOR DISCO DAVE!
Loads of people have said how great the Bollywood Ball was, best ball ever and that the music all night was just fabulous and had everyone up and dancing all evening long!
So thanks from all of us!
Lucy, Sarah & Karen
I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for a fantastic disco that you ran for us on Saturday night. The dance floor was never quiet for one moment during the evening showing what great flair you have for judging the music that we all love to bop to!
Thanks also for the extra bits and pieces you supplied such as the outside speakers which contributed to a brilliant Summer Ball for us all.
Kind regards, Bob Cinnamon

Hello Disco Dave
Thank you for making my 80th party on Sunday a really happy day you played all the right music and listened to what was required. The old London tunes were such a sentimental touch for me – we used to sing these old songs as children during the London Blitz with my class in the school cellar to drown out the noise of the raids.
It was a magical day memories of which will stay with me for a very long time. I was amazed that you remembered my scatty friend Chris from ten years earlier, the laughs we have all had over that memory.
If at any time in the future, another occasion is in the pipe line you can be sure we will be asking you to do the honours again.
I wish you good luck for the future, kind regards Sheila Millard.

I’ve used Dave twice now to DJ at two of my major life events (wedding disco and 40th party) and he hasn’t let me down – punctual with his set-up, high quality equipment, great light show and kept the mood going throughout without talking incessantly over the music.
Tim. Venue - Sopwell House, St Albans Herts.
Hi Dave, Just a quick message to say 'thank you' for your services last Saturday at my daughter's wedding reception at Woolmer Green Hall. I'm delighted to say that the entire day was a total success and virtually everything went according to our plans. Your DJ -ing was really good and the music you provided seemed to be what our guests wanted - had them all on the dance floor - sorry if there was any 'Dad dancing'! The lighting and effects were also fantastic.
I would also add that the bar service provided was great and your staff very friendly and efficient. It seemed you all integrated very well with my caterer and the changeover was seamless.
Plus, thank you very much for allowing my sax player, Johnny Diggle, to use your equipment at such short notice and without you being there to oversee.
I will certainly recommend you to any friends / family in the future.
Very best regards, Val.
David Chell entered into the spirit of our occasion playing the music that we had requested and interacting with the group which was great for us. We had discussed previously the type of music that we and our friends would appreciate and David definitely met our expectations. David is a professional and that was evident from his conversations prior to the event and throughout. David knows his business and how to interact with a mixed group of ages/types and is professional throughout while still ensuring that he is friendly and open. I would recommend him and use his services again
Sue, Garden Party, Eaton Park, Bedfordshire.
I have received nothing but high praise for the music you played on Saturday evening. I know Jenny was thrilled with it all, and the fact that the dance floor was always full must mean others were really enjoying it too! The lights and the screen worked well and the whole performance was most professional.
Thank you Sally, The Glebe House, Sacombe, Hertfordshire.
Dear David, Thank you so much for looking after us so well on Monday night. I think Showstoppers was a great success, and we have raised over £11,000 for Breakthrough!
You were thoroughly efficient and helpful throughout, and I very much look forward to working with you again sometime. Best wishes, Sally
Ross and I were more than pleased with our entertainment on Saturday night, I appreciate that you put a
couple of extra floor lights down. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I am really pleased with how the projector and the photo’s from that night were received! Thank you, I would
definitely use you again in the future.

Dear Dave, I would like to express my thanks & appreciation for all the help you gave me in organising a themed surprise 40th party for my husband, on September 30th 2011.
It was a last minute decision by me to plan the party, & couldn't of done it without your help in sourcing the party pieces & help in decorating the room. The Disco was great,kept me dancing all night, from beginning till end & the guests when they finally hit the dance floor! I had a lot of nice comments about Tornado.
Thanks once again Gabrielle
Hello Dave, 'Having been so impressed at seeing the professionalism of Tornado Event Hire at a birthday party in 2009 I decided to hire them for our Wedding in July 2011 at Sopwell House. I couldn't have picked a better DJ and highly recommend the service they provide. They accurately took our needs into consideration (including additional requests) and are more than worth the money. Thank you for being a part of our day and making it perfect!'
Thank you personally, Kelly
Dear Dave (and Daryl)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for you attendance and support, and the hard work you put in at our Open Day on Saturday. We believe we had around 850 people attending, and early feedback tells us everyone had a great time. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did, and we look forward to working with you on similar events in the future. As usual you did an exemplary job and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any one else looking to hire your services Many thanks once again.
Regards Steve Nash Community Development Officer
Thank you so much for the CD, some of the pictures are really good and we will
put them up on our website and put them in to the album. We had a great time at our wedding, and the feedback from the guests has been amazing... You and Daryl did a great job in providing all the support we needed to have a great day. Thank you so much!
Simon - Civil Partnership @ Brocket Hall Golf Club.
"From enquiry to performance the quality and professionalism of the service we receive from Dave at Tornado is superb. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this service to any of our clients. The large screen showing music videos is a great addition. Whatever the demographics of the group the music and general atmosphere is tailored to fit and most importantly they have the art of getting people involved and up on the dance floor – where most guests will stay for the duration of the night. Our Members Christmas party has been a huge success for the past two years with the help and support of Tornado – even the most unlikely singers persuaded to show of their karaoke talents. Further on our staff Christmas party will be the subject of many a tale and a big thank you to Dave for making this event one to remember.
Paul Lancaster, Clubhouse Operations Manager, Brocket Hall Golf Club
Hi just a quick note to say thanks for doing the disco on Saturday night, exactly what i was after and everyone commented that the DJ did a great job. Many thanks the party was excellent. Cheers Barry
"Hi Dave, Thank you so much for a great disco at our wedding. We were both really pleased with the way you accommodated some of our requests, especially sticking you up in the minstrel gallery to save floor space. We know it wasn't ideal for you being up in the rafters, but you did it without moaning and even though you couldn't see the crowd 100%, trust me you had them dancing all night. The star cloth, flame machines, bubble machine and moving heads all looked great and transformed our barn venue into a modern disco without looking cheesy at all. The karaoke was funny and a really great way to start the evening off and get our guests involved, without going on too long and becoming cheesy, just the right balance. You were superb, your equipment was superb, your music was varied and kept everyone of all ages dancing all night long. Thank you so much,"
James and Sonia Kilroy - Wedding at Tewinbury Farm.
"Hi Dave, We would just like to thank you again for Sat night. The music was brilliant and everyone really enjoyed the music you played, we had several people asking us where we found you because they thought you was so good. We will defianatly recommend you to friends and family in the future and we will certainly be keeping your contact details for any other parties we have. Once again thank you, Take Care"
Mr & Mrs Keeling
"Dear Dave, Thank you for a fantastic evening on Saturday. Everything was great and everyone really enjoyed the dancing again and clearly did not want the evening to end. I am so glad we added the big screen and the flame lanterns. Thank you for making this the best ball ever. I am sure that once we know next years date we will be back in touch to see if we can book you again. Thank you for lending us your James Bond posters.
With best wishes, Cathy".

"Firstly an extremely belated thank you for providing a fantastic Disco for our Duncombe Summer Ball. I am fresh from the first Parents Association meeting of the year and the feedback has been outstanding about how great you were.

With very best wishes, Cathy".

"Firstly, please accept my apologies for the inexcusably late arrival of this letter of thanks after you organised and co-ordinated the music and photo presentation at the funeral of Tom Goom, deceased, on March 11th 2008. We were so impressed and appreciative of your friendly, helpful and sensitive approach to all our requests and were so grateful to you for all your support. On the day, we were very pleased with how everything worked out...Tom's service of celebration was great - exactly what we wanted. Please accept our heartfelt thanks....nothing could have been improved....you made what could have been a difficult day into something very special for everyone. Thank you for your understanding professionalism, your extra time and hard work. We have no hesitation in recommending your services to others in the future". Kind regards Lynda Warrington (Partner) Damian and Kieren (Sons to Tom)
P.S. I made sure that at the "reception" afterwards, we thanked you very publicly and passed on your details to others.

“We have been using the service of Tornado for discos for our year 11 Prom for the past three years with huge success. The people involved are absolutely fantastic. They interact very well with the students and staff and provide excellent service. They arrive and set up promptly and are very generous with their time at the end of the session. We certainly get very good value for money. This year for the first time they were taking photographs during the course of the evening which they were subsequently displayed on a large screen to the delight of everyone. Subsequently we were sent a disc FREE of charge with all the photographs taken by them on the evening and the photographs truly captured the spirit of the evening. We shall certainly continue to use their services and would recommend the Tornado Services to other institutions or individuals without reservation.”

"What can I say.....'brilliant evening', 'superb', 'made me feel really special'.... just some of the comments we've had back from staff who were at the Belfry last weekend for the STARS ball. As part of the team who made it happen, you must take a lot of credit for the success of the evening. All the event admin would have counted for nothing if people hadn't had a great evening and the entertainment you organised for us was spot on. From the moment 'Robbie Williams' hit the stage, the dance floor was filled and I'm sure that, if we hadn't had a 2 am cut-off, we'd still be dancing now!" Jill Case, PA to the Chief Executive Your Move Estate Agents - Stars Ball - The Belfry, Nr Liverpool.
"Just a note to thank you for a superb disco at my husbands 40th last Saturday. All our family and friends had a fantastic evening and danced until their feet hurt. Your choice of music was totally appropriate to your audience and the dance floor was never empty. The accompanying music videos, on the giant screen, made a massive visual impact and created a superb atmosphere in the hall. The 'PowerPoint' presentation, using our family photographs, was a huge taliking point and brought a tear to the eye. You had a captive audience whenever it was played. Thank you for an excellent 'show' and for being so professional and well organised throughout. Even when i was overwhelmed by the scale of events, you gave me the confidence that 'everything was under control' and i very much appreciated your support. Thank you once again for a wonderful evening."
