DJ act featuring live musicians
Deckstination Unknown gives guests the opportunity to get behind the decks and become a DJ for the night.
Guests play three of their favourite songs under the close guidance of the professionals, creating an experience that delivers lots of memorable moments. Our live musicians play along to your choice of tunes creating a buzzing atmosphere.
Your guests get to work the decks as they ‘wow’ their colleagues and friends with approx. 15 minutes’ worth of their favourite songs. With a compere to introduce each DJ and a technical helper to support them in using the decks, clients are guaranteed a musical roller coaster that spans every genre from rock to pop, soul to rock ‘n’ roll, dance to disco and much, much more! The skill of our live musicians means they can switch from Gangnam style to Busta Rhymes in a flash.
No DJ experience is necessary as the team will be with the budding DJ’s the whole time, offering technical assistance to guide everyone to DJ superstardom. They are extremely inclusive and encourage everyone to participate, as it’s simply a chance for people that love music to share their favourite songs with their friends and colleagues.Read More
Set-up time approx. 90 minutes
Below is a breakdown of how we would go about organising your event;
Pre-register via a microsite before the event to become a DJ with our ‘turn the tables’ format. The microsite for this event (using the clients a/w, logos, copy) where guests can log into before the event to register their three songs, DJ name and contact details. We set a deadline a week before the event for guests to submit their DJ requests and once the deadline is reached we pick the best sets to play on the night. This is a great way to hype up the event and get people talking about which songs they would play.
Sign up and DJ on the night. A catalogue of songs can be created based upon the audience demographic to ensure that it’s relevant, appealing and most importantly the catalyst for a great party. The team will distribute these catalogues at the venue which will give some guests the chance to get involved on the night as they can pick three songs, fill in a form and hand it in to us. We’ll then slot them into the schedule with the pre-registered DJs.
The DJ team can mingle with guests for 30-45 mins to tell guests about DJ OKE how it works and encourage them to sign up & book a slot.
They have lists cards for guests to pick songs. They have a huge repertoire but have carefully selected songs for the main list based on what works really well!
Up to 3 guests can go up at a time and each choose a song, again they should all think of their own DJ/MC name
The team will guide the guests through using the head phones fading in and out etc. Intro them and get them DJing.
Subject to audience size:
Approx. 5 guests or groups of 2-3 per hour
