Using a matching pair of 1930’s HMV 102 wind-up gramophones and an expertly-curated selection of 78rpm shellac discs, DJ78 provides atmosphere and entertainment in equal measure. Playing an eclectic selection of popular music from the dancebands of the 20’s through to the rock’n’roll pioneers of the 50’s he makes any social gathering that little bit classier. Looking dapper in his vintage tweeds or dinner suit, DJ78 can work completely independent of electricity, but has the facilities to be amplified when the circumstances necessitate.
DJ78 is a regular studio guest on the Cerys Matthews show on BBC 6 Music and has previously appeared on BBC TVs ‘Working Lunch’ programme and with Rob Da Bank on BBC Radio 1.
He has performed at London Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, The Goodwood Revival, Bestival, Latitude, Llama Festival, Camp Bestival, Shepherds Bush Empire, Ulster Hall in Belfast, The Edinburgh TV Festival, Dublin Arts Festival and at more weddings than you can shake a stick at!
