FORMALLY "76 YORK ROAD MOBILE DISCO" (NOTICE THE ENLARGED ADD TAKEN FROM THE "THOMPSON LOCAL" DIRECTORY COVERING YORK/HARROGATE) - WE WERE FORMED APPROX 20 YEARS AGO AND CONSISTED OF TWO BROTHERS WORKING TOGETHER  - TO MAKE A DISCO WITH A DIFFERENCE, SOMETHING SPECIAL, A UNIQUE SERVICE WITHIN THE ENTERTAINMENTS INDUSTRY.  THESE TWO BROTHERS WERE ZION (DJ ZEE) AND BEXLEY (DJ B)

WE STARTED OFF WITH A BASIC "HOME MIX" BEDROOM CD MIXER - ABOUT 20 CD ALBUMS NO LIGHTS AND BASIC SPEAKERS.  OUR FIRST "GIG" WAS A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND MUSIC IN A PUB CALLED "THE ANGLER INN" IN LOWER DUNSFORTH, NORTH YORKSHIRE IN RETURN FOR FREE DRINKS.  THIS WAS MAINLY TO "TEST THE WATER" AND SEE IF WE COULD PULL IT OFF (WHICH WE DID VERY SUCCESSFULLY).  THERE WERE ONLY ABOUT 20 PEOPLE IN THE PUB THAT NIGHT BUT AS WE BECAME BRAVER AND STARTED TO TALK MORE TO THE SMALL CROWD OVER A BORROWED MICROPHONE THEY WARMED TO US.  SEVERAL OTHER NIGHTS CAME OUT OF IT.  AT THE END OF ONE OF THE FOLLOWING NIGHTS  ONE OF THE REGULARS (SUE) CAME OVER TO US AND ASKED IF WE WOULD CONSIDER DOING HER WEDDING THE FOLLOWING MONTH IN HARROGATE AS THEIR PREBOOKED DJ WASN'T ABLE TO DO IT DUE TO AN ACCIDENT.

NATURALLY WE WERE THRILLED AND AGREED TO DO IT ON THE SPOT - ON THE UNDERSTANDING THAT IN ORDER TO DO A "PROPER" WEDDING WE WOULD NEED TO HIRE SOME EQUIPMENT - AS OUR LITTLE "HOMEMIX" UNIT WAS NOWHERE NEAR POWERFUL ENOUGH.  SUE AGREED TO THIS AND ALSO AGREED TO REIMBURSE THE COST OF OUR HIRE.

THE WEDDING WAS TO BE HELD IN ONE OF HARROGATES FINEST PUBS "THE REGENCY" IN THE UPSTAIRS FUNCTION ROOM.  WE TOOK A DRIVE DOWN TO HARROGATE THE FOLLOWING WEEK TO INTRODUCE OURSELVES AND HAVE A LOOK AT THE SAID ROOM.   IT WAS THERE THAT WE MET THE LAND LADY - AVRIL HARDY WHO WE LIKED INSTANTLY.  SHE WAS GREAT FUN AND A FEW YEARS LATER AFTER SHE HAD LEFT THE REGENCY WE DID HER OWN WEDDING AT A HOTEL IN YORK.

HAVING LOOKED AT THE ROOM WE DECIDED THAT WE NEEDED SOME PRETTY DECENT KIT IN ORDER TO PULL OFF A SUCCESSFUL WEDDING, AND BEGAN SCANNING THE YELLOW PAGES FOR SOME EQUIPMENT HIRE SHOPS.  TWO STOOD OUT BEING "YORKSHIRE SOUND AND LIGHTING" AND "CLASS UK" BOTH BASED IN YORK.  WE VISITED BOTH SHOPS AND CHECKED OUT HIRE PRICES.   "CLASS UK" NOW KNOWN AS "CLASS COMPUTER" CAME OUT TOPS ON FRIENDLYNESS, HELPFULNESS, PRICES, AND JUST PLAIN MADNESS!!!    "CLASS UK" WAS DEFINITELY CLASS IN THE WAY THEY PUT OUR HIRE RIG TOGETHER AND HELPED US CHOOSE THE PERFECT WEDDING SET UP.   THAT DAY A FIRM BUSINESS AND SOCIAL FRIENDSHIP WAS FORMED BETWEEN 76 YORK ROAD MOBILE DISCO AND THE THREE PEOPLE THAT RAN "CLASS UK" - STEVE, PAUL, AND MARK.  HERE IS A DIRECT LINK TO THE CLASS UK WEBSITE www.class-uk.com 

DUE TO OUR RELOCATION WE NOW GET MOST OF OUR EQUIPMENT FROM "DFB LIGHT AND SOUND" IN BULWELL, NOTTINGHAM.  THEY TOO ARE EXCELLENT IN THE SUPPLY OF ANYTHING WE NEED, HERE IS A DIRECT LINK TO ONE OF THEIR RESPECTIVE WEBSITES http://www.soundlightuk.com/shop/

WE WENT OUT AND BOUGHT SOME MORE MUSIC AS THE BIG DAY APPROACHED.   FINALLY IT WAS UPON US AND WE COLLECTED OUR HIRE KIT AND TRANSPORTED IT TO THE REGENCY.  IT TOOK ABOUT AN HOUR TO SET IT ALL UP BUT IT LOOKED PRETTY GOOD, NOW IT WAS A CASE OF WAITING FOR THE WEDDING GUESTS TO TURN UP.  WHEN THEY DID WE WERE A LITTLE NERVOUS AS OVER 250 PEOPLE SUDDENLY FILLED THE FUNCTION ROOM.......  IT WAS CRUNCH TIME FOR 76 YORK ROAD MOBILE DISCO.....

THE EVENT WAS A RESOUNDING SUCCESS!  NO ONE HAD A BAD WORD TO SAY ABOUT US AND IT OVER RAN BY A GOOD HOUR AS EVERYONE WAS HAVING SO MUCH FUN NO ONE WANTED TO GO HOME!  AT THE END OF THE NIGHT SUE REIMBURSED OUR HIRE FEE AND PAID US THE PRICE SHE HAD BEEN QUOTED BY HER OTHER DJ.  WHEN THE GUESTS HAD GONE AND WE WERE PACKING DOWN AVRIL CAME OVER TO US AND SAID THREE WORDS WHICH WERE TO BLAST US OFF IN TO THE WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT...."CALL ME TOMORROW!"

WE MADE THE CALL AND WERE ASKED IF WE COULD DO A FORTNIGHTLY KARAOKE AT THE REGENCY AS AVRIL HAD PROBLEMS WITH HER EXISTING DJ.  SHE AGREED TO COVER OUR HIRE COSTS AND PAY US ALSO.  WITHIN 2 MONTHS WE WERE THE REGENCY'S RESIDENT DJ'S GETTING BOTH KARAOKE WORK AND PRIVATE FUNCTION WORK, NOW WAS THE TIME TO GO OUT AND BUY OUR OWN EQUIPMENT.....

A FEW THOUSAND POUNDS AND TWO EXHAUSTED CREDIT CARDS LATER WE BECAME "76 YORK ROAD ENTERTAINMENTS".  QUITE OFTEN DOING TWO GIGS AT ONCE AT THE REGENCY - UPSTAIRS AND DOWNSTAIRS AT THE SAME TIME - AND/OR OTHER VENUES THROUGHOUT YORKSHIRE.  WE WERE FAST GAINING AN EXCELLENT REPUTATION AS TWO OF THE TOP DJ'S IN YORKSHIRE.  EVEN BEING LISTED IN A YORKSHIRE BASED DJ MAGAZINE.  WE HAD COME A LONG WAY FROM THE BACKROOM IN A LITTLE PUB TWO YEARS PREVIOUSLY - ALSO HAVING TWO OTHER DJ'S WORKING DIRECTLY FOR US ON AN AS AND WHEN REQUIRED BASIS.

DJ B IS NO LONGER WITH US -  BUT PLEASE WELCOME OUR NEWEST 10 YEARS PLUS EXPERIENCED DJ - DJ JAGO.  DJ JAGO (JOHN) IS A CLOSE FRIEND OF DJ ZEE (ZION) AND HAS JOINED WITH DJ ZEE ENTERTAINMENTS SO WE MAY CARRY ON OUR UNMATCHED SERVICE FOR QUALITY AND EXCELLENCE AT A REASONABLE PRICE!
