Club DJ and Bar DJ

Although DJ Brent has made his name primary in the mobile, party, wedding and corporate event circuit, he is no stranger to club and bar gigs and often gets requests to perform slots at various venues. He believes that the biggest trick when Djing venues such as bars is setting the mood for the patrons by playing the right music at the right volume (slightly louder than the usual background music but not massively so where people will still be able to hold a conversation). He is able to skilfully walk the line in terms of musical style and being noticeable, but not overly so. In nightclubs, on the other hand, more than anywhere else, people come for the music and he welcomes the expectation to get them dancing. He has opened for a few legendary South African DJs and is adept at soothing, teasing and nudging the dance floor from empty to being ready to take off – as well as playing peak-time sets.

Modern DJing has evolved into an international business, but nightclubs are still a vital proving ground for established DJs. A good club DJ is always prepared to play different styles on different occasions. Whether it’s opening the night to an empty dance floor or headlining a packed club, each occasion has its own demands. DJ Brent believes that every set you do is a statement about who you are as a DJ, so it’s important to be diligent in all his preparations. Brent believes that it’s important to get to know the customers as the night is really for them, and they spend the money that keeps the club in business.

Opening for another DJ can often be more challenging than headlining. Playing a proper warm-up set can be one of the most difficult tasks for a DJ. An effective opening set can be the determining factor in whether a club night is successful, yet many club owners and promoters seem to overlook the importance of an opening club DJ’s role. As the opening club DJ, Brent is aware of the need to be aware of the progression of the night and always show restraint. The key is to build up the energy gradually so that he can set up a smooth transition to the headliner’s set.

As the headlining DJ, Brent knows he’ll be responsible for playing the hottest songs during peak time at the club. As a headliner he also brings s strong established stage presence knowing that the crowd will be feeding off his energy.

Have been to many functions where DJ Brent was the MC as well as the DJ and have always enjoyed his personality as well as his music. He was the DJ at our wedding 3 years ago and everybody commented on his good choice of music for our special day. There is only one word for him and that is brilliant.

Brent made our event a massive success! He arrived well in advance of the event to set up and delivered excellent sound quality. His MCing brought a wonderful vibe and his choice of music outside of our playlist was well inline with the atmosphere we were trying to deliver. I would definitely hire Brent for an event again!

I have attended several very successful events where DJ Brent played. In addition to being an awesome DJ he keeps his audience entertained, is a pro master of ceremonies and an auctioneer. The fundraiser I arranged was a success purely because of his skills, professionalism and talents.

Brent is the most amazing DJ I have ever seen. He sits with his clients and finds out as much information about their likes and dislikes and is very accommodating in their choices of music. He also helps one with the logistics of the function. He is patient and kind and guides one with the itinerary. Brent can do it all from playing music to being a fabulous MC and putting on a fantastic light display and making the venue fit the mood with his smoke machine or haze machine. He reads the people at the venue well and can change the party vibe to suite them all.

Brent was amazing throughout the planning of my wedding, he was very attentive and helped me wherever he could. He also researched Hungarian songs for me, which was a very special touch. During the wedding, the music was just right, he worked well with our requests. From the ceremony, through the cocktail hour to the reception and party everything was perfect. Thank you, DJ Brent!

Would highly recommend him, very pleasant person. I guess he has a lot of stressed brides before their wedding day, but the way he handles it and communicates about your song requests for the wedding day is so sweet. Kind words “don’t stress all will be in order,” we will make your day memorable “, “you’re going to be a beautiful bride”. Thank you Brent for your calming and sweet words.

Anel

Thank you for making our wedding day as special as you did! We really enjoyed it!!!

Zenita & Louis

Zenita & Louis

Brent was great! His involvement in the planning process was massively appreciated and he offered such helpful input which made for a wonderful set up on the day. He is incredibly professional and did a stunning job of cutting and playing songs on cue. Songs suited our tastes perfectly! Guests were happy too! Bonus is that he had his own battery back ups, etc. So we were completely unaffected by load shedding!

Shelley

The beautiful dramatic wedding look and feel of Daniél and Helaine was just mesmerizing beautiful. The ceremony was held on a green lawn overlooking the Stellenbosch mountains and close by vineyards.The venue was a true depiction of glam and classical design cues with a radiant black and white colour scheme. The dance floor which we opted to do a full gloss black with bespoke dance floor vinyl pulled the venue together and made it truly special. The party was the highlight and we just loved the professional set up by DJ Brent. He truly loves the art of music and his song selections were spot on.

DJ Brent was perfect! We loved the system he works on, he send reminders and very professional with all consultations and interactions. For a stressed bride, it was calming for me to know that I am in good hands and he actually delivered. If it wasn’t for DJ Brent, our wedding would not have been the blast it was. He accommodated us with our own playlist, made good suggestions which made every single person at our wedding interacting and dancing – even the grannies were on their feet! You will do yourself an injustice if you do not make use of DJ Brent’s service!

Brent comes highly recommended as a DJ. He engages with you prior to the event to secure a Playlist and will source any music that’s not part of his repertoire. His equipment and accessories are superior quality and he has a knack for getting the vibe going and pleasing a crowd with his wide variety of music. Good entertainment for all ages/genres and all types of events.
