Planning a wedding reception can be overwhelming, but it just got a lot easier. Here’s why: you can now stop looking for a DJ. You’ve just found the greatest DJ in San Diego / SoCal: Elite British DJ.
Mick Scrivener of Elite British DJ exceeded ALL our expectations as our reception DJ. He was prompt, responsive, and had a great personality. Everyone loved him because not only is he a pro, but he’s funny on the mic!
Mick is incredibly helpful in the planning process. One of the best things about Mick is his innovative ideas (EX: he recommended having the first dance after the grand entrance, followed by all the guests doing “shout” on the dance floor – one of the biggest hits of the night). He’ll also help you make so many of those pesky decisions easier (ex: like should you have a photo booth, should you have sparklers at a grand exit, etc.). He met with us in person prior to the reception to go through our many questions. He was on-time, professional, knowledgeable, and did a lot to set our minds at ease. We walked out of that meeting feeling much better about all of the details and confident that Mick would take care of everything. He was responsive to our emails and his online portal is great to put in our song requests in terms of importance to us.
Finally -- and perhaps most importantly – Mick killed it when he was DJ'ing during the reception. Nobody wants one of those DJ's that just plays one song after another with no mixing or beat-matching. Mick was as far from that as possible. He mixed songs together (with some unique combinations that I still remember now) and kept the party going. I even saw my dad doing a handstand on the dancefloor – he doesn’t even dance! He had everyone on their feet anticipating what was coming next. He made our day phenomenal and we could not have asked for a better person for our reception!
So cross of finding a DJ from your list – Mick is the best. You’ll be lucky if you can get him for your event!

Mick was so amazing! I 100% recommend hiring him. My husband and I are very picky, and we were worried we'd end up hiring a cheesy DJ that did all the basic old fashioned wedding stuff (Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, blah blah). But after our first meeting with him, we were so wowed right away, and it made us even more excited about our upcoming wedding -- because let's be honest, having a good DJ is key to having a successful/fun wedding!
Mick was so incredibly helpful in advance of the wedding -- he gave us advice on our timeline, what types of songs work best, and he just had so many fun ideas in general. For example, the pre-dinner "Shout" dance where you get every guest on the dance floor. We were a little skeptical about this, but it was SO FUN and he was so right -- it's the only time of the night that you will have literally every person on the dance floor, so you get some great pics. And it's just a unique thing that never happens at most weddings, so people totally ate it up.
This guy definitely knows what he is doing. He has obviously been doing this long enough to know his stuff, which is so helpful when planning a wedding. It's a stressful time, and he eased some of that stress by providing us with so much advice and insight. AND after the wedding was over, he sent us the most awesome slideshow of pics he took during the reception. Just so thoughtful from start to finish. We definitely made the right decision by hiring him!

Mick was the best choice (besides my husband ;)) I made for our wedding!! He was the perfect DJ, kept everything running on time, had everyone up dancing the entire night, and was wonderful to work with! If you need a DJ, Mick is you perfect go to!
I LOVE working with Mick! And not only because he is British and I am Australian (although it certainly helps). He is an excellent DJ who is always on top of his game. He has an incredible knowledge of not only just about any music you could come up with but also has the best tech around to make sure that you are getting the best quality possible. A bad DJ can really ruin an event and a good on can make it. Mick will make sure it's the best night of your life!
We have had the pleasure of working with DJ Mick a bunch over the last couple years and every single couple RAVES about him. What a cool, charismatic dude! He has excellent taste in music and is really good at feeling out the crowd to make sure everyone is having a great time. He gets everyone to party like crazy, and we get even better photos!
Mick is the best! He has such a great personality and feel for what your guests want. He will keep everyone on the dance floor till the last song and make everyone wish that the night would keep going! Plus he is not cheesy like so many other DJ's out there! Go with Mick for your next event and you are gauranteed a great party!
