WHO IS DJ MEL?
If you’re reading this I'm hoping you’re interested in booking me, for a party, event, or function; And I'm guessing you want to know a little bit about me! Well here it goes...
I thought I would start with something one of my clients once wrote about me. "She's 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!
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, as a girl it was a bit of a novelty, but I loved it, from playing in friends gardens to events and parties it was a fun hobby.
I returned to my home island of Jersey back in 2001 and started working as a TV Journalist and Producer for ITV Channel, looking after all the entertainment coverage. Producing and presenting festival programmes for ITV2, eventually moving into News.
Over the next few years I started to settle 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 made it my own and became the only female resident DJ in the island.
Over the years I had expanded my music knowledge playing anything from 70's and 80's to pop, chart, party, disco 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 favourite party hits, took your requests, was not scared to use the mic, and made sure you all had a good time.
So what changed.....
Well I decided the time was right to leave ITV and enter the corporate and events world of DJing. I now split my time between Marketing, freelance Radio Presenting and DJing.
After working in nightclubs for years I really wanted to be the one that came to you and not the other way round.
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.
To sum it all up when 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...
