Whether you are looking for a sophisticated DJ to perform at your wedding, party or your corporate event, Earcandy DJs will keep your guests dancing for the whole evening. 

Earcandy DJs provide modern and stylish lighting and top range DJ equipment from more intimate events to larger gatherings. Earcandy DJs can "read the room" to help elevate the mood, and achieve the brief that you provide. 

Earcandy DJs can be booked alongside any of our other acts or as stand-alone entertainment and have had experience at thousands of events.

FAQs

What styles of music can Earcandy DJs play?

Earcandy DJs are vetted to perform a wide range of commercial music from old-school throwback classics to modern chart hits. Listen to the sample mixtapes on this webpage for examples of some of the genres they can play.

Can I provide a playlist

We tailor the event around your needs, so if you have a list of songs you would like Earcandy DJs to perform, we'd love you to send these over. 

Bear in mind that some of the value you get from a DJ is their ability to 'read the room' and be able to drop the songs at the right time, so if you provide them with a list of songs that cover the whole event and a set order, it may mean you don't get the full value from the service.

Can Earcandy DJs mix the music

Yes, Earcandy DJs will mix the tracks

What type of events are Earcandy DJs not suitable for?

Earcandy DJs are vetted to be able to perform a wide variety of commercial music.

We will not be the right fit for you if you are looking for an evening of very specialist 'niche' sub-genres, for example, a whole evening of "deep house" without variety. 

Can Earcandy DJs provide cultural music?

Absolutely; we often provide DJs for cultural celebrations. In this case, it is normally best for you to provide the DJ with a list of tracks that you would like to hear - as this will help ensure they meet your expectations.

    • We hired the DJ and Sax combo for a wedding our…

      We hired the DJ and Sax combo for our wedding, we were really hoping it would create an amazing atmosphere and they did not disappoint!

      A week before our wedding DJ Matt Wells called me and introduced himself and asked me about the music genres we wanted, and agreed set up times and details.

      On the day, Matt sought us out and let us know he had arrived. He instantly got the party going, and thankfully he read the room with the music choices, as I realised I'd got it wrong when specifying the genres I wanted, Matt played the music that suited the crowd much better and got people moving for the whole four hours.

      He played right up until the last minute, and was the last person to leave the venue! Fantastic service.

      Hayley Bohan

    • After losing our original DJ booking due to postponing our wedding, we were so thankful to find EarCandy. Communication was great (make sure you check your junk emails as some responses did go here!) and the invoice process was seamless.

      We had DJ Kev on the night and he was fantastic. He contacted us a week before to chat through playlists and music genres. We created a Spotify playlist of around 50 songs which we shared with Kev and he ensured he had all those available on the night.

      On the actual night, Kev read the room really well and ensured the dance floor was never empty - he even played some Turkish songs and was happy to take requests as the night progressed. All our guests were raving about the music on the night - so well done Kev!

      Mr Mclugash

      Miss Yates

    • I booked a DJ via Earcandy for our wedding on august the 8th. The communications via earcandy and the initial booking process was really easy and the personal approach was one of the reasons we went with them over competition. On the night we got Kev Williams who was fantastic, you could tell he really loved DJing and had just as much fun as our guests, really read the room well and played to our tastes perfectly. Massive thanks to Kev from Tom & Vicky for making our day extra special

      Tom Marten

    • We used Earcandy for our Cheshire wedding in August. It was really easy to work with Earcandy, who stayed in touch throughout the process. They also made it very easy to move dates, as we had to postpone the wedding twice. Our chosen DJ, Kevin, was absolutely excellent. He worked with our music choices and curated an amazing evening of music which all our guests loved. Would highly recommend.

    • Earcandy DJ Video Review

    • I just wanted to thank you all at Ear Candy. From start to finish you were all brilliant and so professional I felt totally at ease and confident that everything was under control and everything arranged would happen on the night.
      Damon our DJ was totally magnificent really really great! He was charming and professional and brilliant with everyone at the event. He took charge of all the decoration and lighting. He was utterly safety conscious (we hosted 325 children) yet fun. He was an absolute superstar! - I have texted him a personal thank you but please pass on my comments again.
      Please could you also forward this to your management as I really think you deserve recognition for how well you all managed the booking. I will recommend you to everyone.

      Paul King

      Wedding , June 18, 2016

    • Our event was a little unusual compared to a normal DJ booking as my sister and a few musicians were performing first, so Kwesi became the sound engineer! The band used his PA system and he was most helpful in the set up and throughout the performance. Once the band had finished he then took over and played some absolute tunes... The dance floor was packed and everyone had a great time! Thank you so much.
