“It has been a pleasure working with both Phoebe and Clare. Phoebe has been an excellent point of contact throughout and so polite and understanding. Clare was outstanding, for such a big event for Harrods she really made the night. Her skills on both the saxophone and keeping the crowd alive with her dj sets worked wonders and we would recommend their service over and over again. Thank you both and we hope to work with you again in the future. Claire was the glue that held the evening together, amongst the madness of everything else going on & we are so happy how the evening went! Thanks again DJ Ellis you were amazing!”Nicole Clowes Assistant Manager at Harrods - Boat Party on the Thames
“DJ Ellis was fantastic. We had many great compliments from friends and family about how good the music was and everyone was on the dance floor all night. She managed to fit in most of the music we asked for and the extra music she played was similar to our style and liking. Her set up looked great and we cant thank her enough for putting on a great show. We will highly recommend her to other people in the future.”Marc & Lauren - Wedding, Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth

How long do you take to set-up?
90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, she will often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around.
What time do you play and for how long?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 5 hours of live DJ music and 90 minutes of live sax accompaniment, any time between 7pm and midnight.
What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on me DJing at a venue within 30 miles of my base in Brighton. I charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive, I charge a bit extra so I can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact Tailored Entertainment with your event date and venue details.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception or wedding breakfast?
Yes - DJ Ellis offers a Daytime and Evening package where she can provide background music during your drinks reception and/or dinner.
She also offers a Daytime Sax package.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, DJ Ellis regularly works at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Will you play our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice of the song, Ellis will make sure she has this downloaded for you.
How much space do you require?
DJ Ellis has played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2m x 4m.
How much power do you require?
2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
