We booked Richard for our school's leavers disco, this was the third time we have used him and he as always was fantastic! He is great with the kids, full of energy and created such a fabulous atmosphere that even the teachers couldn't resist dancing! We are already looking forward to seeing him at our Halloween disco.
We had Richards time machine for our wedding DJ. He was brilliant. Got everyone up dancing and played great music for everyone. Got the crowds up for first dance so well. Highly recommend. Thank you Richard �
Thank you SO much for a fabulous Prom last night at Rosemoor Gardens. It was the best send off we could have given to our Year 11s leaving Great Torrington School! Great music, great service and you got ALL the students and staff dancing which was VERY impressive! Thoroughly recommended, five stars!
As a Wedding Photographer operating under Prime Photos, I see a lot of different DJ's in my profession. I was fortunate enough to photograph a wedding at Woodbury Park this Sunday and came across Richards Time Machine Mobile Disco. I have to say that Richard's attitude, service and all round professional approach were superb. It's rare to see a DJ interacting with Bride and Groom, all staff and even myself with such enthusiasm. As for the music, it was brilliant. The best bit, Richard's exceptional organisation of the First Dance which, as a Wedding Photographer, was a dream. I will be highly recommending Richards Time Machine to all my future couples. 5 Stars.
Myself and Dan would like to say a massive thank you for the perfect wedding disco last night! Your hospitality was amazing, your efforts to get everyone on the dance floor was brilliant. Thank you for your kindness and great music collection! Definitely a recommendation from us!
Thank you Richard for a wonderful party for Lily today. From beginning to end you have shown great professionalism, enthusiasm and experience. I have had many comments since from parents to say how much the children enjoyed it.
Myself and Matthew would like to thank Richard on doing such an amazing job at the disco. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Did a fantastic job right through from the first dance to the end of the evening, getting everyone up on the dance floor and playing something to suit everyone! You know it is a great party when you have both the groomsmen and the grandparents in the dance floor all night! Thanks againMichelle and Matthew
My Husband and I booked Richard for our wedding last weekend, and what a great evening we had! Richard played a variety of music throughout the night, making sure there were songs played for all ages, and music tastes. He went above and beyond to ensure all our guests had a great time, and kept the dance floor busy all night.I also had some very specific requests for Richard, including a new first dance song, as well as a music edit to be played for my dance routine with my bridesmaids. He catered for all requests made, and produced such a brilliant atmosphere on the dance floor. A perfect night was had by all. Thank you very much.
Myself and my new wife Rachel would like to thank Richard for an amazing disco for our wedding party on 3rd February. There was a great range of music played over the course of the evening that catered to everyone's musical taste and got our guests dancing away! We were very grateful for Richard's advice and his professionalism in the build up to and on the evening for us, and his total flexibility on timings such as the cutting of the cake and the first dance, bearing in mind we had children attending who were not going to be at the party all night. We certainly recommend him and his mobile disco for anyone that is looking for great evening entertainment for a wedding party and I'm sure for other types of party as well - Richard, thank you for playing your part in the happiest days of our lives! � Greg and Rachel Gay.
Richard did my sons 5th birthday party yesterday - he was fantastic ! All the kids, and adults, really enjoyed themselves ! He got all the kids involved with all the games and the dancing - and everyone left happy! I’d 100% recommend Richard to anyone looking for a disco for their kids parties. Thankyou! �����
We want to thank Richard for making our evening reception so successful. Being the bride I ended up being half an hour late to our first dance (oops!) and from what I hear Richard kept guests occupied by playing some great music and encouraging them onto the dance floor. Richard played all the songs we requested and on a couple of occasions restarted songs as the bride and groom missed the beginning! My only disappointment was when the music ended 🙁 We would highly recommend Richard for any event. Thank you so much again. Victoria and James Sangster
Thank you Richard for providing the music for our multi celebration evening. You got the party started and kept it going all evening, it was fab! You exceeded our expectations and helped make the evening really special!
I cannot rate Richard highly enough...From start to finish our 8 year olds birthday party was fantastic, so much so that she cried when it was over.Richard is a consummate professional - from the first email through to today's party.He involved all the children with and the choice of music was spot on - you know it's a great party when all the mums and dads join in too.Thank you Richard for just the best disco Highly recommend �����
Richard put on an amazing surprise birthday for my 6 year old daughter. He was there for two and a half hours and kept the kids entertained for the whole time. Hats of to you Richard! The kids loved you as did all the mums and dads. The best bit was just seeing all the children with smiles on their faces. We cannot thank you enough for all your effort and the great communication throughout the whole party. We hope to use you again one day Richard!
We booked Richard again for our school Halloween disco this year and as usual he didn't disappoint! He arrived on time as booked, kept the children entertained for a whole 2hrs with music and games. He is professional and polite and I absolutely recommend him for any event. Thank you again Richard ! Claire Herlihy x
Richards time machine disco was fab, he played music to suit every1 , he geared every1 up for our first wedding dance with a countdown and we didn't want the disco to end! Looking forward to going to my friends wedding in Feb as he is playing there too!
Great disco for my daughter's birthday party tonight. Over 30 teenage girls all dancing the whole evening and thoroughly enjoying themselves. Richard tailored the music perfectly for them and made sure they were all involved.
As a wedding photographer I get to work with a lot of DJ's in Devon and Richard is one of the best. He really puts a lot of effort into making sure the guests have a great time and gets everyone involved on the dance floor!
It is simply not a party or celebration without Richards Time Machine. He reads his crowd perfectly whether they are 80 or 8 years old and keeps the energy going on the dance floor. Thanks for an amazing event.You won't regret hiring this professional man!
We could not imagine a better DJ for our wedding. He made sure we got exactly what we wanted and played a great selection of music that kept people dancing all night and created the best party atmosphere. We cannot recommend Richard highly enough and would definitely use him again for parties.
Richard was amazing at our wedding at Lake View Manor, Dunkeswell. He picked the perfect music and was able to get everyone up and dancing throughout the night. Adults and children alike loved the music and we had some really fun dances! Thank you…Christine
Richard contributed far more than just music for the wedding party of Mr & Mrs Munford yesterday.He created a fabulous party atmosphere with the perfect mix for the friends and family. Richard added the extra sparkle to the evening by allowing the bride and groom relax into their first dance. He is a talented DJ and a bonus at a wedding.
As a wedding photographer I have worked with many different DJs and I have to say Richard is the best so far. For the first dance he warms up all the guests with some great anthems before announcing the couple. By this time the guests are super excited, which is a great start to the night. For me as a photographer it is fantastic as I get loads of happy guests on the dance-floor to capture. Well done and keep it up!
We booked Richard for our Wedding at Northcote Manor and we're not disappointed! His fantastic knowledge and approach created a brilliant atmosphere that kept our party going and everyone loved his choice of music and ability to play requests.
I am an experienced wedding photographer and I always photograph the first dance. On most occasions the DJ makes an announcement and a few people come and watch. Richard was amazing. Firstly liaising with me about lighting, timings and so on and then organising the guests. No one was left in their seat, he rallied everyone and got them dancing, cheering, clapping and generally fired up. When the bride and groom danced it was so lovely as their were literally surrounded by their friends and family. It was great to photograph and the atmosphere was amazing.I am sure he tackles all his bookings with this same enthusiasm and energy and I would highly recommend him.
I have work with Richard on many events over the years and his professionalism is just amazing! He loves to entertain and keep the guests happy which is so so important at a wedding or party. I'd certainly recommend Richard for a fabulous disco ...
I have worked with Richard many times now at different weddings. He is amazing, the dance floor is always full when he is Djing creating a feel good atmosphere guaranteeing a brilliant party. I can't wait to work with him again.
First class from start to finish! Can't recommended Richard highly enough! He is just fabulous made our daughters 8th birthday just perfect! Will be using him everytime we need a disco no one else is good enough!
Wow!!...what can I say!.. Saturday 5th Dec, venue The George Hotel Hatherleigh..The place was buzzing, the atmosphere was electric..thanks to the wonderful Richard & his Time Machine Disco...a great mixture of oldies & new music, infact whatever anyone fancied on request...thanks to the unique text from your table request form..great idea!..please come again soon..x
Quite simply a 'proper' DJ! Why do I say that?... well Richard gets everyone dancing, not content with just playing music he interacts with guests and has a good time with it. I'm a wedding photographer so see a lot of DJ's and Richard is one of the best.
My wife and I were recently invited to a friends daughter's Wedding and disco after. Being more mature we thought it was all going to be music we didn't know and felt a bit reluctant to go. However, how wrong we were, Richard created an incredible atmosphere with his disco and played music for all tastes and ages.Even myself and my wife were up dancing to music we requested from Richard, within minutes almost everyone was up on the floor, even the kiddies were dancing to our favourite music, what a fantastic time we had.Nothing was too much trouble for Richard and throughout the evening he was so cheerful and attentive when anyone asked him for a request. He treated the children as he did the adults and went out of his way to make sure everyone enjoyed it.This was a lovely Wedding Day but with Richard and his disco after, made this a day and evening one we shall never forget. If you are planning an occasion in the future we highly recommend you contact Richard, he made sure we all had an incredible time, thank you Richard!
We booked Richard as our daughter wanted to have a disco for her and her friends to celebrate her birthday party, already having experienced the brilliant and top service that Richard delivered at a wedding we attended we had no doubts that this would be the best option for our daughters party. He kept the children entertained throughout the party and the response from the children was great, I am assured by all that everyone in attendance had a great time, even some of the adults. Would highly recommend. Thank you Richard.
Hi Richard,A Massive thank you for being the most outstanding DJ we have ever seen at a wedding, and it happened to be ours!!! You carry such professionalism and all night we were carried along by your knowledge and experience to make the most of those who wanted to enjoy the dance floor. The numbers dwindled a bit due to those who had to leave earlier, the choice of music was varied for all and the 'text the DJ a song' Is an amazing idea, thank you for bringing it all to our wedding!We shall be recommending you to our friends & family.Many thanks once againMr & Mrs Rivers
Richard was excellent playing at a recent wedding I was running. His set up was quick and slick! He really plays to the crowd and the dance floor was full all night long. I would definitely recommend him to future clients.
We booked Richard on recommendation from our friends for our sister's wedding. Thank goodness we did. He was outstanding in his professionalism and instinctively knew what we needed even though we didn't!The evening was such a great night and it would never have been so wonderful without Richard's expertise in knowing how to get the best from a wedding crowd. They were all up and enjoying themselves.Time of our lives! Thanks Richard.
A fantastic DJ, kept me relaxed in the build up and accommodated a silent disco ending to proceedings as we wanted to party until late on our NYE bash! The floor was filled all night, guest requests were welcomed and playlist largely adhered to as well so no mean feat - thank you again Richard!
