Welcome to the Jingles Blog Page
This is the newest page on the Jingles Website and will keep you updated with information about Jingles Professional Disco and the many events that we are privileged to DJ
Are you are in the process of looking for your wedding entertainment?
Here are a few tips and pointers to hopefully make the process easier.
Before you book and during the booking process you can tell a lot about a DJ business.
Do they have a website, does it look professional, are they happy to show photos of previous weddings?
Do they have a facebook page, how does that look, are there any comments/testimonials from previous wedding couples?
How did they respond to your initial email/phone call, how long did they take to reply?
Do they have the correct licenses and insurance to DJ your Wedding?
Don’t be afraid to ask your DJ these questions before you book. If they are a professional disco they will be able to answer yes to all of your questions.
Your Wedding DJ should give you the option to submit a playlist in advance of your Wedding to allow you to choose some of the music that is played on the night.
Choose the correct disco and the DJ will have the experience to work out what type of music will get everyone on the dance floor.
Not everyone likes the same type of music, after all, the type of music that your younger guests may like will possibly not suit your parents or grand parents! It is important that the DJ has a large enough collection of music to suit all ages.
A professional Wedding DJ will also have tried and tested ways to encourage your guests onto the dance floor if at any point there is a lull in the dancing.
Your wedding disco has to look and sound good. It also has to be set up on time. The last thing you want is someone turning up (late) with scruffy equipment and have cables lying about everywhere. It doesn’t make for a good look on your wedding photographs and won’t help with the atmosphere at your wedding.
Find out what time your DJ will be setting up and also how long it will take.
And last but not least make sure that your DJ takes a deposit and issues you with a contract so that you have everything in writing.
Thanks for reading this. Hope it helps. Even if you don’t choose Jingles, we hope you have an amazing wedding day!

Although it seems like a long time ago now, Jingles had a an amazing time at the Crichton Golf Club, Dumfries over the Christmas period. Six party nights, each one different but they all had one thing in common. Everyone who attended was out for a great night. The atmosphere was incredible. The DJ loved it!
A video from Lauren and Neil’s recent wedding at Friars Carse. The couple booked us to play music when Lauren was walking down the aisle, also for the signing of the register and the couple chose a song to be played when they walked back up the aisle. We were also booked to play suitable background music during the wedding breakfast and of course we provided the music for the disco celebration in the evening.
