Here’s what Oli Function DJ’s clients said:
‘It was such a pleasure to work with Oli over the Christmas season at Freemasons Hall recently. Every night had a different client requirement and Oli was incredibly adaptable to their specific needs. On some nights he had to do a massive 6 hour shift on stage, which he tackled with immense energy, never once complaining or struggling with what to play. He took the crowd on a musical journey, covering a range of genres including dance floor classics and up to the minute chart hits which literally had people sprinting to the dance floor. Oli is also pretty handy with a microphone, which is a blessing as not every DJ feels comfortable making announcements! Thanks for being a super start Oli, I hope we get to work together again soon’
Bimla Safka, Smart Event Producer
‘Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for all your hard work for my 40th at The Groucho. Everyone commented how they ‘didn’t stop dancing all night’, the music was fantastic and you judged the crowd perfectly. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with, right from the start nothing was a problem, even when I asked you to source extra equipment for a separate act. You are an absolute pro, can’t wait for the next time!’
‘I booked Oli for my Wife’s surprise 40th birthday bash and I can honestly say he was absolutely amazing! Choosing a DJ can a be total nightmare, they’re the beating heart of a party and you rely on them to get everyone dancing and having a good night, the last thing you want is one that will kill the atmosphere with terrible tunes. So I was delighted to see everyone enjoying themselves from the moment the party started. He had a fantastic track list for the night that kept everyone partying right through to the small hours, even joining in with a few dance moves of his own! I cannot recommend him enough!’
