Hi JamesI just wanted to
I just wanted to say a big thanks to you and our DJ Kevin for making my 40th birthday party on 06/04/19 a wonderful night. I have had a lot of positive feedback about how much everyone enjoyed themselves and the Massaoke was a big hit!
I was also very impressed with how responsive and accommodating Kevin was to any requests we had on the night.
Based on our experience I would be happy to recommend your service to others and hopefully we may be able to work together again in the future.
With thanks and regards
A brilliant wedding DJ
We were introduced to Premier Disco through the band we booked (The Ceilidh Experience). The whole planning process with the ability to give song preferences was straightforward and comprehensive. The service was very professional and we felt James really kept the party going at all times. We have had a lot of compliments from our guests about the quality of the band and DJ and how well they worked together which I think says it all! Many thanks, Michelle and Tom
My husband, James Spray, and I got married in June and used Premier Disco as our DJ (in conjunction with The Ceilidh Experience). James did an amazing job from start to finish! He made sure all of the songs we requested were played, and otherwise kept our family and friends on the dance floor all night long! Can’t recommend highly enough!
Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding dance. The dance floor was full from start to finish with a brilliant mix of songs to get everyone dancing.
Great from start to finish! The dance floor was always filled.
Would highly recommend!
Wedding and Events Coordinator
I very much enjoyed your pre-event emails, so that I could check our noted times against your given times to ensure we are on the same page and ensure a smooth service for our joined customer.
This level of communication is quite unique, as we do not have a lot of other bands / dj’s do this.
It was easy and comfortable to deal with you and receiving the required PAT test.
Hope to hear you play with us in the future again!
Very pleased with the service for our wedding. Impressed by the online service for requesting music (and the encouragement to use this). Very flexible prior to the event about phone meetings to make arrangements. On the day all our requests were played including ceilidh calling and the progression of music through the night reflected the audience ready and willing to dance well. Very professional service and definately contributed to the success of the evening aspect of our wedding. No complaints, a pleasure to work with.
60th birthday bash
James was fantastic greeted everyone very attentive played the music what was requested.
Perfect and fun Disco!
What a fab night we had. Premier Disco were punctual and so helpful and so much fun! You made sure you played out special request and some of the guests 🙂 the dance floor was never empty! Thanks again for everything.
Super Troop Disco @ Fettes College 2018
We had a disco for 16 kids with disabilities and their helpers. Our DJ for the night was Bill, who contacted me beforehand to ask about preferred playlists etc. which helped get the party started! He was punctual, polite, friendly, very professional and really made our night a success! We hope to run the event again next year, so will definitely be in touch. Meantime, I would not hesitate to recommend you guys to anyone. Thanks again.
James at Premier Disco did such an incredible job at our wedding this past June. He made sure our special requests were played and did a wonderful job of gauging the room, playing music that had everyone out on the dance floor all night long. It made our evening that much more special.
We also rented lawn games (badminton, Jenga, croquet, quoits and boules) through James, and they were the perfect addition to our weekend. There was rarely a moment that the games weren’t being used, at least until the music started and people were out on the dance floor instead!
30th Birthday Party
Great service from the very first email enquiry right through to the music on the night of the party. James always responded to any emails and questions I had very quickly and kept me up to date with everything. The DJ arrived early and was set up with plenty of time to spare before the party started. The requests we made prior to the party were played and the dance floor usually packed with people enjoying themselves. We and all the guests had a brilliant night and I would recommend James to family or friends looking for a DJ.
The MURRAYBALL 2k18
From start to finish every song was perfectly timed, our evening flowed brilliantly from the guests arriving through dinner and into the dance. The dance floor was always packed and the comments we have had from our guests were all commending the dj on the music choice! Would recommend to anyone who wants the dance floor full! And would definitely use James and Colin again!
40th Birthday Party
I hired Premier Discos to play at my husbands 40th birthday party which was held at Preston Lodge Rugby Club. James kept in touch with me in the lead up to the party to ensure that all the details were correct and to ensure that it was the best night possible for all. James was able to gauge what the partygoers wanted to dance to and also selected music for all ages and made the night a huge success.
I would highly recommend Premier Discos and wouldn’t hesitate in using them again.
Thanks for a great night!
We would like to thank you for playing at our wedding, we had a great evening as did our guests. The DJ service was an important part of the reception and thanks to the opportunity to request songs beforehand, we were able to able to have music that was to our liking and that of our guests. I particularly appreciated the fact that for the more obscure tracks there was no fuss in you getting a hold of them and playing them for us on the night.
Thanks for making this part of our wedding as personal to us as any other part.
The Perfect Wedding DJ
Thank you, James – you played a great selection of music – including a lot of our suggestions – that had the dancefloor constantly full and all our guests had a great time. We loved that you’re so organised – your website allowing us to choose our “must play” and outline the order and timing of events actually helped us a lot as well as hopefully helping you. We would highly recommend you and The Ceilidh Experience. Tremendous

We would like to say a massive thank you to the ceilidh experience and the DJ for playing at our wedding. We could not have asked for a better night! You were all great and had the whole crowd going from beginning to end. Everybody had such a fantastic time and loved the energy of the night! We really had the best night of our lives and your music played a massive part in that!
Thank you so much for contributing to our wedding day in such a brilliant way! We are so grateful to you all!
Just a quick email to say thank you for your DJ set at our wedding at the Capital Hotel on January 20. We had a fantastic night and your music selection was spot on - and you got plenty of our requests in there too! Our guests also commented on how much they had enjoyed the music.
We'll highly recommend you to anyone having a function in the area in the future.
Bryan & Emma Copland
Thank you to James for a flawless service and top quality delivery of the Premier Speed Quiz - a phenomenal product. I am sure we will see you again soon, Erika
The boys and girls loved the event. It was a great success and they want to do it again.
Maybe in the summer term.
The fact that this is the 3rd time in 12 months we have used Premier Disco speaks(if you pardon the pun) volumes about James and Premier Disco, always helpful and very obliging when we contact him, if you fancy a brilliant night, look no farther than Premier Disco.
Preston Lodge RFC
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Friday night. We had such an amazing night the music was fantastic.
Just a short note of thanks for the very entertaining disco on Saturday and especially for the ceilidh set at the end. I'm never seen a Canadian Barn Dance quite like that.
The sign of good music is the number of people dancing and the floor was pretty much packed all night.
I booked Premier Disco for a Disco following my wife's birthday dinner. They were very professional, easy to deal with and were prompt and did exactly what they had agreed to do. No hesitation in recommending them.
Very professional., friendly and played all the songs we wanted and more! High recommended 🙂

Jamie Kinnear, RACE NIGHT, DUNFERMLINE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION, DUNFERMLINE, 05/03/16
Hillfield Swifts 2006's held a Race Night fundraiser on Saturday 5th March & we booked James at Premier Discos again after several successful events over the last few years. James leaves no stone unturned & cannot do enough for us to ensure we have a successful & enjoyable night. We followed some of the good advice Jamea provided to ensure we maximised our income from the event by selling tickets, horses & jockeys prior to the event. On the night itself, James ensured the tote table & the auction maximised our profits on the night. We raised £2,629.00 after paying all our initial outlay & would recommend Premier Discos & events to anyone who was thinking about planning a Race Night or Disco type event. Thanks again James, I will be in touch again soon for our next event. Kind Regards, Jamie.
Kenny Mantle, RACE NIGHT, INCH PARK CLUBHOUSE, EDINBURGH, 20/02/16
We had a fantastic night - the racing was very well organised and the service provided by James was thoroughly professional from start to finish. I would definitely use Premier Disco's services again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others in the future. Thanks for helping us have a great night James. Kenny Mantle ESFC.
STEPHEN THOMSON, RACE NIGHT, INCH PARK CLUBHOUSE, EDINBURGH, 13/02/16
James, thank you for your efforts on Saturday. Even although the attendance could have been more, the enthusiasm and entertainment you provided on the night ensured that we raised a fantastic amount of money towards the tournament we're attending in May. Best Regards, Stephen.
GILLIAN MAXWELL, 40TH BIRTHDAY PARTY, 3 BRIDGES, SOUTH QUEENSFERRY 09/01/16
We were very pleased with the service offered by Premier disco. A very professional and friendly operation. Played almost all the songs on my playlist and kept the dance floor full all night. Would highly recommend
ISOBEL CAMERON, WEDDING RECEPTION, DAVID LLOYD LEISURE, EDINBURGH 21/11/15
It was a brilliant set with a very friendly DJ who set up quickly and packed up quickly. He played all the right music and even said he stuck to my instructions of no Michael Jackson even when someone tried to request the Jackson 5 which made me laugh a lot! I would really really recommend this company and if we ever need a DJ again we would definitely go with you again 🙂 thank you so so much!!
SCOTT PIRIE, WEDDING RECEPTION, NORTON HOUSE HOTEL, EDINBURGH 14/11/15
I have been meaning to get back in touch with you, however, we've been just readjusting back to chilly Aberdeen after the honeymoon.
Just want to say that yourselves and the DJ were both excellent. You were all extremely professional, but still down to earth and the setup was extremely smooth and well organised. Our guests genuinely cannot stop telling us just how fantastic you were.
At this point in time, I'm trying to convince Clare of any reason we could hire you again, you were really great. Will be recommending you for all occasions.
Thanks again Norman, was an absolute pleasure having you play at our wedding, many thanks.
Craig Brown, Race Night, Macmerry Miners Club - 13/11/15
From start to finish James ran the whole show. Some of us were a bit worried but James kept us right. Everything was first class from the races, raffle and the music. Thank you premier disco for a great night.
Susan Seib, Wedding Reception, Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 09/10/15
Just a short email to say thanks from us for doing such a great job at our wedding on Friday. You played a great mix of tunes and kept us dancing all night.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music - especially the cheesy stuff and 70s era.
James Parrott, Wedding Reception, Kinkell Byre - 30/08/15
Hi James, we thought the DJ/music was absolutely perfect. The choice of songs, the timing of them and the quality of sound/volume were all spot-on.
David Bissett, Wedding Reception, Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 28/08/15
James provided us with a great soundtrack at our recent wedding at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel, and the mix, style and tunes had everyone up on their feet for pretty much most of the night.
A great night was had by all and I have no hesitation in recommending James to anyone looking for a DJ service for that special occasion.
Craig Roxburghe, Racenight, Rosyth Civil Service Club - 11/07/15
I started planning a race night to help raise funds for Josh Cathcart to help get his dream of having two arms. I contacted premier disco and the service I got was first class, they helped with every question I had and helped plan the night out. I would definitely recommend premier disco. Everyone at the event said it was run so smoothly and that was really nice to hear and that was down to premier. We raised a massive £4,820.50. Thank you very much and will definitely be contacting you again for up and coming events. Craig Roxburgh

Michelle Smith, Race Night, Ciswo, Glenrothes- 30/05/15
Excellent service from the start and valuable advice given throughout - absolute success of a night , Alan our DJ for the evening was excellent and very professional - guests had the dance floor full for all of the disco part and our Racenight raised a tremendous £5300 for Jonis bucket fund, supporting my brother, aged 34, and his young family through Motor Neurone Disease.
Would definitely use premier disco again.
Katrina & Chris Walker, Wedding Reception, The Rowantree, The Caves, Edinburgh- 17/05/15

Hilary Sim, Wedding Reception, Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 15/03/15
We were very pleased with your mobile disco service. You listened to what we wanted and played suitable music accordingly. Everyone had a great time and because the D.J. played the correct music for the event, the dance floor was never empty. Well done and thank you.!
Carrie Rennie, Wedding Reception, Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 07/03/15
Absolutely brilliant! The dance floor was filled from the start! The Music was great and there was something for everyone. Would recommend premier disco for any occasion!
James Brewster, Wedding Reception, Kinkell Byre, St Andrews - 07/02/15
Was a fantastic day and Norman and James went out of their way to make it special. Our 200 guests were entertained from start to finish and both the Ceilidh and DJ set were a lot of good fun. Highly recommend their services! A professional outfit that offers very good value for money. Thanks again, guys.
Liz Collister, 6th Form Ball, Fettes College, Edinburgh - 06/12/14
The pupils really enjoyed the disco, the DJ was very helpful and although the pupils had requested music through the link, he also took a tatty bit of paper with preferred choices and went with it. I think the proof of the pudding was that there were always people up on the floor dancing which I would take to mean they were having a ball! Thank you once again for a great night.
Jamie Kinnear, Racenight, Crossgates British Legion - 08/11/14
James & Premier Disco was our chosen host for our Race Night fundraiser and he leaves no stone unturned with his knowledge in making a Race Night real success. We had used other companies for previous Race Nights and were not a patch on Premier Disco's Race Night package. We had everything we needed from James well in advance so we could plan & organise an event to maximise our profit. We raised an amazing £2,468.00 from the Race Night. A huge thanks to James @ Premier Disco's for a really fantastic night & we will definitely be in touch again for a future booking. Many thanks, Jamie Kinnear (Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts FC).

Absolutely fantastic night! I only wish it had gone on longer. We were never off the dance floor, thank you x.
Izzy & John Cunningham, Wedding Reception, The Quay, Musselburgh - 27/09/14
My wife & I would like to state that Premier Disco, in particular, James, was absolutely first class through the whole process. The online facilities and instructions were easy to understand and use. On the night of the reception the music played was exactly what we were after, with the guests stating afterwards that the DJ was ace.
Leanne Calvert, Wedding Reception, The Caves, Edinburgh - 21/09/14
Brilliant! Very accommodating & friendly, couldn't have asked for better. Thank you!
Andrew Marshall, Wedding Reception, Oxenfoord Castle, Pathead - 20/09/14
We used James Veal to run our disco and to help organise the Ceilidh band at our wedding. We were really impressed with the professionalism of the entire process from planning all the way through to the actual day. The pre-event meeting was very useful and reassuring to us and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend friends in the direction of James. Thanks, James - you helped us have the most amazing day.
Dawn Claridge, Silent Disco at RAF Leuchars, St Andrews - 12/09/14
I would like to pass on my thanks to James Veal for another superb entertaining silent disco and disco at our Battle of Britain event. I am happy to be quoted in a testimonial as James is always prompt, reliable and extremely friendly and courteous. He has twice now ensured a room full of smiling faces with the silent disco in particular and there are always groans when the end of the night comes around such is his value. This time round having 3 channels thanks to wifi access and the colour corresponding headsets went down a storm. I would gladly get him back for every disco or event.
Date of event: 12 Sep 14
Venue name and location: RAF Leuchars
Number of attendees: 260
Addition from Kim Drinkell
Just wanted to thank you for all your help and work at the last two functions that you've been at. From the start, you've been professional, efficient and very friendly. You were an absolute godsend when you covered for the late band at our summer ball, and it goes to show how much of a good job you are doing if everybody protests when you have to switch off at the end of the night! When I move to my next base early next year then I'll sure to recommend you to the Mess entertainment committee
Emma Westwick, Wedding Reception, Crowne Plaza Royal Terrace, Edinburgh - 06/09/14
I just wanted to thank you for providing such a fab DJ for our wedding reception on 6th September. Alan got the tone of the evening just right; good selection of music, not too loud, no unnecessary chatting on the microphone and his set up was just right for the size of the room. And I was really impressed with the lighting system. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again
Maureen Jamieson, 40th Birthday Party, Willowbrae Bowling Club, Edinburgh - 05/09/14
Hi James. Thank you so much for the fab music at my 40th! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their night and you covered as many of the requests as you could!! It was fantastic and I would recommend people book up with you for their events. The online advance request system is great!! Thanks again.
Lynne & Colin Drummond, Wedding Reception, Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 29/08/14
James was excellent in the lead up to our wedding and also the night itself. He done exactly what he said he would, took requests from guests and went with the crowd to try and keep a full dance floor. He played a range of upbeat genre through the ages just as we asked, and both ourselves and our guests had a thoroughly enjoyable night. Thank you, James and Premier Disco!
Lindsay Dixon, Wedding Reception at Dryburgh Abbey Hotel, Melrose - 15/08/14

Thank you for doing such a fantastic job playing at our wedding on 1st August. The DJ and disco were fabulous and the dance floor was always packed.

We'll be sure to recommend you in the future. Thanks again!
Lisa Mills, 40th Birthday Party at Queensferry Masonic Lodge - 01/08/14
Thank you Premier Disco, I had an absolutely fantastic party courtesy of your DJ. The music was great, everyone was up dancing and all had a wonderful time. The highlight for me......having "All I want for Christmas" played in August and having the dance floor full. Loved it!
Yoshin & Mark, Wedding Reception at Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 31/07/14
We had Premier Disco at our Wedding reception and we found the DJ and the set-up was very professionally organised. I found the Website very useful in being able to search for our Playlist songs and there was good feedback on any songs which were not available. An Excellent service which I would highly recommend.Thank you for contributing to making our day special.
Addition from Premier Disco Admin... The bride and groom asked for a number of Nepali songs most of which we managed to source but there were 2 which we could not find. On the night of the reception we received many more requests for Nepali songs and I am happy to say that by using our online purchasing sources we managed to find and play the vast majority of these.
Leigh & Scott, Wedding Reception at Charwood, Edinburgh - 26/07/14

Natasha & Kevin, Wedding reception at Duddingston Golf Club - 19/07/14
Could not speak highly enough of James throughout the planning of the event. Every question was answered quickly and accurately. On the night itself, Colin the DJ was fantastic. Played all the songs we requested and kept the dance floor packed all night. Our whole wedding reception was a success and had great feedback about the DJ from everyone that was there. Thank you for playing your part in what was such as a special day for us. Email Received...... Hi James, I have submitted feedback but wanted to email you anyway. Both Natasha and I had an incredible day and a large part of that was down to the service you provided. All our guest have said that the reception was top class and obviously the DJ was a huge part of that. Music was spot on as was the lighting. Thank you for being superb during everything and I have recommended you to a couple of friends who are getting married next year. Thanks again and we both wish you all the best in the future. Kevin and Natasha
Liam & Chris, Civil Partnership at Dunkeld Hilton - 12/07/14
Fantastic DJ, really entertained our guests and got everyone up dancing. We especially liked that we could use the online request portal prior to the event and our guests could also. James was a pleasure to deal with.
Stacy & Neil, Wedding Reception at Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 27/06/14
A huge thank you for playing at our wedding. We had a great night and everyone there are still now talking about what a great night they had. Music was fab and all requests sent in beforehand were played. Would defo use you again and highly recommend.
Gill, 50th Birthday Party at Edinburgh Corn Exchange - 14/06/14
Thanks for making my party a fabulous night! All the guests agreed the playlist was great and ensured a packed dance floor all night. I particularly appreciated the opportunity to submit my own choices via your website well in advance of the party. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family for their own special events.
Liam & Chris, Civil Partnership at Dunkeld Hilton Hotel - 12/07/14
Hi, Norman & James Thank you both so much for your music at our civil partnership on Saturday. We had an amazing time, the music was fantastic and we have had nothing but compliments from our guests about the ceilidh experience and premier disco. Sorry for the delay in getting set up, we really appreciated you coming in to start set up whilst we were finishing our meal. Please pass our many thanks to the other band members. Kind regards Liam & Chris

Brilliant night enjoyed by all. I will be definitely recommending you to family and friends. Thank You, J Cairns,
Laura & Derek, Wedding reception at Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 17/05/14
Hi, We would like to thank Premier Discos for the fantastic music played at our wedding reception. The DJ had everyone up on the dance floor playing all our requests and other great songs. All our guests had such a good night, as did we. We would love to use you again in the future and would definitely recommend you to others looking for a great DJ. Thank you!!
Wadi and Luke, Wedding reception at Dryburgh Abbey, Melrose - 31/05/14
Hi, Thank you for a fantastic evening- you were so patient with us starting so late! We loved the opportunity to invite guest requests which led to loads of excitement and anticipation before the big day. The dancefloor was packed all night- the bride certainly didn't leave! Disco, you were great at feeling the mood/vibe of the crowd and altered the music to get even more people dancing. You tracked down remixes we requested and then chucked new tracks into the mix. You clearly work well with The Norman McKay Ceilidh Experience. We're still getting comments about how much fun people had! And what a way to end the evening- a group sing along to Caledonia was perfect seeing as we've so recently had to move and miss Scotland loads. It was so wonderfully perfect. Thank you! Can't say that enough. Thoroughly recommended!
Cameron Kirkwood, Wedding reception at Carbery Tower Musselburgh - 02/11/13
Hi, The Ceilidh Experience played at our wedding at the end of 2013 and they were outstanding!! Simply put they are top-class musicians with great energy and stage presence. It was really important to us to have a band that would cater to keen Scottish country dancers, eager but shy people who needed a bit of encouragement/guidance and also to entertain the wallflowers... Norman’s band absolutely nailed it. They have great character and I honestly believe they’re one of the best ceilidh bands in the UK (I’ve been going to ceilidhs for 10+ years and never seen a better band). Disco James was top-notch too and the way they set up and interacted with each other and our friends and family made the whole evening a party... all of our friends said they had a ball and it was one of the best receptions they’d ever been to. I’d highly recommend the Ceilidh Experience to anyone!!
Brian, Race night/day at the Horseshoe Tavern Musselburgh - 08/09/13
Hi James, Thanks for email and opportunity to comment on last Sundays (08/09/13) “Horseshoe day at the races” event. Everyone who attended that I’ve seen since has commented on what an enjoyable day it was. It also turned out to be a very successful day as although we had 70 tickets on sale of which between 50 -60 attended, we actually managed to raise £913 in total to put towards our 3 pub local charities fund which now sits @ £1,823 for the year. I think raffling a horse in advance of the final “auction” race was a real attraction as we sold 1.5 books of raffle tickets @ £1 per strip. I think with your guidance we also maximized what we could do with the auction race and generate £160 out of 50-60 attending (mostly families) in what was only really 7 horses (as 1 was owned by raffle winner) was as much we could’ve done in the circumstances. I’ve been back at work since Sunday so not seen many of the pub regulars but have already been asked on a couple of occasions when next race night will be, and although a bit cautious to have it too regularly, would hope it would be at least an annual event. Thanks again for everything James, See you soon I hope. Regards Brian
Pete Toye, 3 way joint 21st at Mal Maison Edinburgh - 07/09/13
Hi James, Thanks for your email. The service on the night was great - greatly enjoyed by all. Was impressed with the size of the setup - would highly recommend! Many Thanks
Vickie Martin, wedding reception at Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 06/09/13
Hello James. We just wanted to thank you so much for being our wedding Dj not only did you play all the songs we requested you were able to play our guests request even the oldies. As you know our original DJ let us down days before our wedding and you stepped in at last minute for this we are forever grateful we truly are over the moon with your entire service. My only regret is I didn't come and introduce myself to you and say hello my apologies I was completely lost in the moment and full of alcohol. We had a really great night. Thank you. Vickie & Rob
Louise & Gary Robertson, wedding reception at Edinburgh Capital Hotel - 31/08/13
