We used solent lights and sound for a dance floor hire for a music video, they were very professional, quick setup and were helpful in its use. would recommend and use again.

Just a quick email to thank you and your assistant for putting on such a great show at our son's wedding yesterday. Everyone has remarked on what a professional show you put on with a cracking mix of music and getting involved the way you did.

I will most certainly pass your card around and use you again in the future if I may (we have another wedding in 14 and I like to arrange an annual boat shuffle on the Solent if you have the sea legs).

Once again very many thanks. Tony Vaughan. Review date: 28/12/2019

 Childrens Party

We hired Solent Lights and Sound for over the Christmas period to do several children’s christmas parties, Tom was amazing and totally entertained around 80 children each event, a feat that isn't easily accomplished. Tom taught them dance moves, held raffles and organised the children to meet Santa.

Tom is a great all round entertainer and we were happy with his efforts.

Hi Tom, Just wanted to say thanks for Saturday night, I know it must have been difficult for you but you did a good job! Seeing as most people who attended were deaf, sorry I should have said. But your fantastic idea of turning the bass up so they could feel the vibrations was a nice touch and paid off, If I need a DJ again I know who to contact! Thanks again.

We all had an absolutely fantastic evening thanks to your hard work, it was a tough crowd but you kept the momentum and it paid off.? Many guests on the evening and since the party have commented on what a great set it was with several particular highlights. The event manager at the venue also quoted you as the best they had seen at that venue (I hinted they should put you on their recommendation list).You read the audience well and gave us some great memorable moments, the dancing set and our small group dancing about in the last hour were a particular highlight for me! Thanks again and I’m sure we’ll see you soon at another event, if not ours then friends / family.
