June 2020 - coronavirus update...


Welcome to my website, and thank you for visiting! My name’s James, and I'm a professional mobile DJ covering Greater Manchester, Cheshire and surrounding areas.


We’re living in strange times. Like most people in the wider hospitality industry, my career is on hold at the moment, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. I love my job, and I’m missing the fun of playing at my gigs every bit as much as the income from them, but I’m also very aware that there are human beings behind the statistics. For some people, the current situation will have a far longer-lasting effect than it has had on those of us who have just had to stay safely at home. To those of you, I can only send my love and best wishes.


However, it's clear to me that there are a lot of people waiting to get married, celebrate a big birthday, or similar; they will be hoping to reschedule events that they had planned and have had to cancel. Others will have planned an event for later this year or for 2021 all along. Once hospitality starts to reopen, this is clearly going to create greater demand for the required services – not just the DJ who can only be in one place at once, but the room at the venue that can only host one gathering at a time, the caterers who will have a limit to what they can supply, etc etc. So, if you’re looking around for suppliers for a forthcoming event, my advice would be to get a date in their diaries, even if you're not yet sure if the event will be permitted to go ahead.


And in order to make that easier, at least as far as your DJ is concerned, I’m currently making two promises to prospective customers. Firstly, if you book me for a proposed event that cannot go ahead due to ongoing Government legislation in response to the pandemic, it will not cost you a penny. I will not be taking booking fees / deposits for the foreseeable future, and you are not committing to paying my fee if your event doesn’t happen for this reason. 


Secondly, the price I’ll quote you for any proposed event before December 2021 will be the same that it would have been back in January 2020. While many things affect a DJ’s price for any given occasion (see How much?), I will not be attempting to profit from the extra demand created by this horrible situation.


With this in mind, please click through the links above to find out why you should ask me to quote for playing for you. I've many years' experience of playing for all sorts of events, yet I still have as much enthusiasm as ever for the music and for the people on the dancefloor! I have industry-standard sound and lighting equipment, and a friendly dedication to making every event I attend a success.


Looking forward to hearing from you… best wishes and stay safe!


James Donnan
