OPUS 2 DISCO & DJ BIOGRAPHY

For Peter Roberts

(Circa 1974 to 2014)

“I have worked as a DJ for over 40 years, progressing through mobiles, venue bars and clubs.

I play the widest choices and styles of music to cater for ALL events”. (Peter A. Roberts - DJ)


MOBILE DJ

  I have been a DJ for over 40 years with massive experience in running many kinds of functions from Weddings and Civil Partnerships

to Corporate Events and from Celebrations to Student and Childrens Events from Birthdays and other Celebrations.

My knowledge of music is vast and I always play to the audience requirements no matter the function.

I welcome musical input from clients, (as much as you like), that will aid a fantastic event from its start to its conclusion.

I have, and still perform, in Top Class 4 & 5 Star Hotels on a weekly basis across the country including many

Prestigious Golf Clubs, Private Estates and Homes.

“My experience is vast,and my appetite for a successful function is still huge and extremely positive!”


EVENTS COVERED

Weddings, Birthdays, Corporate and Black Tie Dinners, Clubs, Venue Bars, Fashion Shows, Launches,

Lunches, B – B – Qs, Childrens and Charity Events, Fund-raisers and Theme Nights as a Mobile or Club DJ.


CLUBS AND RESIDENCIES

I finally stopped DJ-ing in clubs in 2010 after 34 years in leading venues.

My final residency of over seven years, was for the LUMINAR LEISURE flagship @ OCEANA, KINGSTON, LONDON

CLUB OF THE YEAR 2003/4 2008/9 - RESIDENT DJ - THURS & FRI.

I previously worked for SFX/Apollo Leisure, European Leisure, Yates (Wine Bars) and many Independents.

My manager, Steve Fluery, from 2003 to 2010 was also Manager of The Year several times in that period.

Daytime, I have worked over 24 years for Disco Mix Club (DMC).

I compile the DMC ‘DJ Only’ monthly DJ CDs of megamixes, remixes, promo and compilations and supervise the DMC Download Site

and its vast back catalogue and ever growing current catalogue of DJ Music Collections for thousands of UK & European DJs.

I have been the subject of several magazine interviews with Mixmag, Reviewer with DMC Update Mag, Kingston Live,

Ministry Mag for Ministry Of Sound, Mencap News for many years, The Henley Standard and several other

local and national news outlets including nearly 15 years of mentions in OK Magazine!


STYLES AND GENRES

From “Pop and Soul to Rock n Roll” including:- Chart, Pop, Party, Funk, Dance, Disco, Student, 50s to 2014+


MUSIC COLLECTION, EQUIPMENT, SOUND AND DIGITAL LIGHTING

My “on the road” CD collection is well over 100,000 tracks across more than six decades. I can supply Audio, Video and Karaoke for clients and cover a vast and varied catalogue and even screen photographs and video supplied for the event.  

Musically, I endeavour to supply any style of required and appropriate music to suit the customers needs prior to playing at the event within reason. Anything “out of the ordinary” may require an additional budget. My Music, Video and Karaoke collection includes so many major hits and plenty of selective background and theme music, mixed or un-mixed, for across food etc.

I have a very flexible 2K JBL mobile sound rig that allows small and larger functions to be catered for.

My lightshow is a state of the art digital lightshow with award winning LED lights from many current major manufacturers.

Six lasers, within 1upto 15 light heads including LED Floods, moving LED Dot Matrix, Lasers and a 20” Mirrorball

Plus 16  state of the art Chauvet Tri-LED Uplighters that double as full on stage lighting!

I can also arrange for additional room sound and even LED Dancefloors

and Artists, Bands, String Quartets, Table Entertainers, Photo Booths and Chocolate Fountain Suppliers!

In addition,  quality Mixing interfaces for CD and Digital plus Radio and Lead Mics for presentations and Karaoke via a 16 Channel desk.

My mobile rig would grace any small to medium club with honours!

QUOTE FROM WWW.FUNCTIONJUNCTION.CO.UK WEBSITE :-

Pete is one of the busiest and most popular DJs around. He has an extensive music collection to suit all tastes and his presentation is of the highest professional standard. Perhaps Pete’s most celebrated bookings have been to provide the discotheque entertainment at many private parties for Elton John including all The White Tie And Tiara Balls since 1999 and also for a private function for Sir Paul McCartney. Pete has also run the disco at many other important events including the opening party at the London Palladium for Grease -The Musical and ‘Saturday Night Fever – The Musical’. Pete has played at all the major London hotels including:- The Hilton, The Savoy,The Dorchester and The Grosvenor House and at many other top venues including Quaglinos, The Hurlingham Club, all the major museums in London, Blenheim Palace, Cliveden,

AGENCIES

Direct

Orange Discotheques (Reading)

PHOTOGRAPHY

I also take photos throughout my mobile and corporate events (150 to 500 pictures)

and show them during the function to screens as a slideshow throughout my events.

This shows a visual story of the event from behind the decks and around the tables through the event.

These are free to view on the night but I charge an additional fee to take them home on a data disc to keep as a memory disc of the event or I can create a DVD Slideshow to watch on computer or TV as a bespoke momento for you, your family and guests of the event for an additional fee.


“There’s even an event waiting to happen for you too!” Regards – Peter!
