When it comes to your big day, you’ll want to book the right wedding music to suit you and your guests. Finding the right balance can make your wedding day even more memorable. We offer you a selection of Otago’s greatest musicians, providing you with soft, ambient background music to really set the scene or some upbeat music to finish off the amazing day.

DJ 4 You

You can trust our team to take care of everything for your Wedding day, and the months that come before! We ensure that everything runs smoothly, effortlessly and without a hitch! We co-ordinate with your celebrant, videographer, venue and MC ticking all the boxes along the way leaving no room for error or ‘I don’t know’s’ come the big day!

It can be good to chat about what you have planned so far, what you still need to plan, and find out how we can be a part of the journey – calls & skype meetings for couples planning their wedding from abroad are highly recommended!

We play a wide range of music from the 60s & 70s right through to the chart toppers of today! We discuss the music direction that you would like to hear on the day, as well as input from your guests who are a big part of the dance floor (unless under strict orders from you to take no requests of course!). We use this as a starting point when creating each couples custom playlists. We create playlists for each section of the day, ensuring there is appropriate music at all times!

We have over 50,000 songs in our collection and have been the DJs for hundreds of weddings! With this level of experience its safe to say we have a pretty good idea of what works, and how to get people tapping their feet! All our DJs also come equipped with mobile internet (restricted to 3G coverage) so any quirky requests we don’t have in our collection can be downloaded instantly.

We are the highest rated event DJ on social media (as far as we can see amongst major competitors), have hundreds of testimonials from previous customers that you can read for yourself on facebook & other listings, and to top it all off are the Official ‘Dream Team DJs’ for the Bride & Groom Magazine.

Tai Forrester

Tai, who is originally from Stewart Island and now a Wanaka based musician has been playing live music for 12 years. He is not afraid of the stage as he opened for the Doobie Brothers, Tiki Taane, Black Seeds, Elvis Costello… Over the years he built up lots of experience in playing live music, live looping and beatboxing at weddings, events, pub gigs etc… so he knows what the perfect event needs. He covers a broad range of genres, from Anderson Paak to Tracy Chapman, Eminem and Bill Withers. Lately he’s been working on originals and we’ll hope to have some songs ready in a couple of months.

As a solo artist, he won Songstars Queenstown in 2014 with his song Guilty. He mainly plays covers with a ‘soulful blend of acoustic rumblings, peppered with a surprisingly powerful voice and precise playing’ as I quote The Source magazine. He is a wizard with vocals, guitar and looping!

Apart from his solo gigs you can also find him as the singer of Queenstown band The Killer Seas. Inspired and influenced by rhythm & blues, 60’s garage rock and psychedelic soul, The Killer Seas are all about getting back to the essence of rock & roll music.

Robert Glen is a one man band-loop pedal based/singer/solo guitarist hailing from Dundee, Scotland.

Robert has an eclectic taste and with a repetoire of over 200 songs he can cover all genres and tastes and can also learn songs for you that you wanted to hear on your big day.

If it’s stripped back acoustic isle songs, canapes or fill the dance floor music you want Robert can do it all.

Since moving to New Zealand I have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with The Black Seeds at The Forsyth Stadium, Jimmy Barnes, Paul Ubana Jones, Swamp Thing and Salmonella Dub.  As an artist, constantly striving to improve and develop my talents, every venture, gig, solo or band performance I am polishing and improving all the time.
