We are Mark Bell and Chris Frieze and we have been professional DJ’s for over 15 years. We came up with the concept of bespoke music solutions because we felt there was a significant gap in the market for people who wanted an alternative to the standard cheesy, mobile DJ road shows.
How many amazing weddings have you been to that have gone downhill once the evening disco sets up? Is there any need for the DJ to arrive wearing an afro wig, a shirt open to the waist, a medallion, props for YMCA and announce every single track over the microphone including a dedication for Auntie Brenda to sing Take Me Home Country Roads?
It seems that now we are in the mp3 generation, any DJ Tom, DJ Dick or DJ Harry will have a go at playing back to back cheese from a playlist on his ipod and charge you a big fee for it, even though you only liked a handful of tracks from his set. We at Bespoke Music Solutions are record collectors and music obsessives as well as being professional DJ’s and producers. We believe that record turntables are musical instruments and each record should be creatively mixed together, for you the client as well as your guests. We have won several international mixing competitions and played alongside some of the most respected DJ’s in the world. We believe that as well as reading the crowd and giving them the best party possible, a good DJ should avoid gaps between records, not to mention talking over them. If you’ve been to events where the DJ seemed to talk more than play music, then you can understand our policy of being “tastefully interactive”.
