As the evening trundles on it’s not infrequent for guests to approach the apron – or the DJ console if you’re at ground level – and make a curious and slightly questionable gesture. This involves both hands palms up, in

"Great evening. Good music. Nice guys. Good value. A good time had by all!"
"Couldn't recommend the services of The Old Rockers highly enough. If you're looking for a lovely local DJ who will make your party perfect and leave the too cool for school nonsense at home, I would say that they're just the people for the job... and I'll always remember how special they made my big day."
"The Old Rockers are great - they are completely reliable, and exceptional value for money. Mike has done 3 successful office parties for us and he plays only the music we want. Recommended without reservation."
"We used The Old Rockers for our wedding. They have an extensive playlist and will go through it with you in advance so you can choose your favourites or tell them which tracks they definitely shouldn't play! They are helpful and friendly and excellent value for money."
"Great value, great playlist, professional equipment. Mike was helpful and patient in encouraging me to develop my own playlist. But he was also able to respond flexibly to the group mood. We felt taken care of. I also appreciated his lack of chat. The focus was kept on the music. Just what we wanted. Thanks Mike."
"Very efficient set up with minimum of fuss. Music was great and would highly recommend and use again."
"Incredible playlist, remarkable value-for-money. Will book again."
"What a great gentleman! Mike kept the young, the middle aged and the oldies rocking until the end. He just knew what to play to keep us all going. We had a super evening totally enhanced by Mike, his play list, playing requests and his knowledge of what made people enjoy music. Well done Mike! "
"Mike played for my brother's wedding and his set was fantastic. Communication before the event was great and he was really professional throughout, setting up his high quality gear promptly and clearing away at a convenient time the following day. Everyone had a wonderful time dancing way into the small hours. Thanks so much Mike!"
"Mike made a completely memorable event from our Housewarming Garden Party and BBQ. I will always remember the timeless tunes we played and what great fun we had! A highly professional, affordable and efficient service all round."
Mobile disco with the music you can choose
We send you a list of 12,000 track titles to give you some idea of our range. Then we plan the playlists with you well before the event so that we can provide exactly the music that you and your guests like. We can provide background music or keep-em-dancing or gentle music for later; we cater for all musical tastes from the 1930s up to last month. Unlike most DJs we’re also very happy with folk-rock; heavy metal; Irish traditional; klezmer; line dance; ska. . . Whatever keeps the floor packed!
Exceptional sound and light shows
Our standard kit comprises laptops, mixers, 14 active (powered) BOSE speakers and two banks of Chauvet lights for floor and ceiling
(12 quad-colour LEDS, 12 fixed-colour LEDS, 2 lasers, 8 high-power strobes, sound activated pulses). It’s fine for up to 200 people on the dance floor. And if necessary we bring our own gazebo for weather protection.
Sensibly priced and professional
We’re PL insured, PRS licensed, and NADJ members but we DJ for enjoyment, so we keep your costs down. Our fees are from only £30 per hour, which includes all the PAT tested kit and lighting but mileage (from near Aylesbury) plus VAT to be added; usually no other costs.
We can sometimes provide short-notice DJs or emergency DJs.
Some of our artists:
We also offer:
We have a huge selection including light classics, shows/films, jazz red-hot and cool, world music,
orchestral, swing or simply pop and rock.
You can leave the choice to us, or we can send you a list of 12,000+ track titles to give you some idea of our range. Then we plan the playlists with you well before the event so that we can provide exactly the music that you and your guests like.
We cater for all musical tastes – from 16th century up to last month.
Cocktail receptions, dinners, corporate events, exhibitions, fund raisers – we work with you to create the ideal ambiance.
. . . where guests can choose the music.
Guests always put requests to the DJ so we make it easy for them by providing a list of 12,000 tracks from which they can choose – but we like you to tell us if any tracks are forbidden!
Some hosts give vouchers to their guests to ensure that everybody has an opportunity to hear their favourite requests.
And if you like, the Human Jukebox can make a brilliant contribution to your favourite charity. The guests make their choice and make a small donation – whatever you decide – for it to be played.
Afterwards we give you the proceeds and a report of the music played.
Recently (well, pre-lockdown) we had a couple of special parties where the guests were particularly pleased to remember their pony club balls and freshers’ hops. For an 80th birthday, we played many swing and big band tracks – Benny Goodman,
