If you’re reading this I'm hoping you’re interested in booking me, for a party, event, or celebration; And I'm guessing you want to know a little bit about me! Well, here it goes...
I love all things that sparkle! I really do light up a room! My home is filled with disco balls, neon signs and my wardrobe consists of rows of sparkly sequin dresses! I love to dance, have fun, and just love to DJ!
One of my clients once wrote...
"DJ Mel is the queen of getting the party started, no matter what the occasion, fabulous at reading the crowd, and she loves to get everyone up dancing!" This comment always makes me smile as it's what I try and achieve every time I play. I want people to have fun, let their hair down relax, and most of all enjoy the music I play, and dance the night away!
But where did my Djing career all begin...
I started DJing over 2 decades ago in the UK, back then I loved Indie music and that's how I got involved in the DJ scene, and I loved it, it was a fun hobby.
After 18 years working for ITV as well as a nightclub DJ at weekends, I decided the time was right to set up my own company as 'DJ Mel' and enter the corporate, weddings, and events world of DJing.
As you might have guessed by now I don’t do things by halves, my first event was a corporate party for a company that employees over 1000 people, and for my second I went one bigger and supported Katherine Jenkins for a sell-out show. Since then I’ve gone from strength to strength playing some of the largest events in the Channel Islands and beyond as well as some amazing wedding celebrations.
In recent years we've added live music elements to DJ sets working with fabulous Saxophone players and Electric Violinists.
if you book me I intend to make your event sparkle! I have a vast array of music knowledge, a huge music collection and most of all I want you to have a party to remember...
I returned to my home island of Jersey back in the early '00s; after spending 4 years at Uni studying Broadcasting, I started working as a TV Production Journalist and Producer for ITV Channel, looking after the entertainment coverage. Producing and presenting festival programs, eventually moving into News.
Over the next few years, I settled back into island life and decided to turn my hobby of DJing into a career, instead of starting small I went straight into one of the islands busiest nightclubs, I took on 'Kasbar' and made it my own, becoming the only female resident DJ in the island back then.
Over the years I expanded my music knowledge playing anything from the '70s and '80s to pop, chart, party, disco, chart D&B, and old school house and not forgetting everything after and in-between. Really I’m just obsessed with music!
I spent years in the DJ box learning my trade. If you live in Jersey I was the one who played all your favorite party hits, took your requests, and made sure you all had a good time.
