Recommended DJ - Mint DJ Service
We have known Tim for years and have worked at some of the same events and attend some of the same wedding fairs.
Tim is a great friend and I can honestly say that he and his team are amazing at what they do.
Mint DJs are recommended by many people as they are well known and very established.
We highly recommend Tim and all his staff at Mint DJ Services for any event that you are having - If you are wanting people up on their feet dancing the night away, then look no further, Mint DJs will get the party started!
Tell us about yourself
My name in Tim Cullen, and I have been a DJ for over 25 years playing at various nightclubs, Weddings and private events worldwide.
I have run my company ‘Mint DJs’ for over 10 years.
We cover DJs for all events, and our team is now 15 strong covering all genres.
I absolutely love my job, and will never stop being fascinated by the way music can drastically change the vibe of a group of people.
We also provide extras such as dance-floors, live musicians to play alongside the DJ and additional lighting.
May we meet our DJ before we sign a contract?
We are based in Tunbridge Wells in Kent, and more than happy to travel to meet couples.
We can also Skype couples, which is obviously a very popular modern way to meet without travel expenses and using up precious time.
How involved can we be in selecting music for our event?
Our clients can be as involved as they wish with the music for their event.
We send over a form for the client to fill in with any requests, and also DO NOT plays.
Some people give us 2-3 songs and trust us to judge the others on the night.
Other people give us a list of 100 songs, and we pick from those. Everything is always up to the client.
It is their special event and it should run exactly their way!
What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?
We tend to let the music do the talking.
We feel that getting on the microphone and ordering people to dance can come across slightly ‘cheesy’ and very demanding.
It is our goal to feel the music and the crowd and play the right music at the right time to tease and pull people on the dance-floor with our power of mixing.
Our dance-floors are generally packed from start to finish, so we must be doing something right!
How far will you travel?
We generally cover the whole of the South-East of the UK, London, Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, East Sussex, Essex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire are all within our areas.
What packages do you have to offer?
We have numerous options depending on our client’s needs and budgets.
From a standard DJ setup with simple lighting and DJ booth, to dance-floors, up-lighting and sax players.
We have it all covered.
Top tips for weddings
We tend to always tell our clients to be aware of their guest’s music choices on the invites if they choose to do this.
In our experience, even though it can be a great way to get your guests involved, it can work out to be very difficult indeed.
Guests can tend to put down songs that no one knows, or even put down their first dance from their own Wedding.
We would advise to put ‘At Bride & Groom’s discretion’ on there, just in case and go through the list carefully before giving to the DJ.
