My team and I (photography) worked alongside Richard at Alana and Matt’s wedding at the fabulous Beaconside on Saturday and we’re blown away with his energy for the crowd! From the first dance until the end, the dance floor was jam packed with guests absolutely having a ball. He interacted just the RIGHT amount and in the perfect way to get the crowd going. We barely felt like we were working because we were having so much fun! Thanks Richard!
Claire Boo-Radley

What a brilliant way to finish our wedding day!Our guests loved Richard and he had them on the dance floor all night! He even popped out to dance with them himself at one point!Brilliant choice of songs to keep the atmosphere going all night long. Would definitely be my first choice of disco for any future event!
Laura Damarell
Wouldn't have wanted anyone else to do our wedding disco on the 1st December 2018. Richard was always prompt with replying to any message, put us on the right track with everything to do with the disco and the evening timings. The dance floor always had people on it from the age of 3 upwards. Fantastic music and evening. Thankyou so much Richard, you were amazing.😊
Sarah Lomax
Absolutely amazing night! Thank you so much for a great night! Wouldn’t of had any other person DJ my mums 50th! Gets everyone involved and dancing! Jokes around and a bit of banter going... definitely recommend 😊
Bonni Shapland-Hill
Richard was perfect for our wedding at Trevenna. We had a consultation with him before and explained that I wanted to do something a little different prior to the first dance, with a dance mash-up with my friends. Richard was brilliant and got everyone on the dance floor. He was great with the kids and played a variety of music that appealed to everyone to keep the party going. We'd highly recommend Richard for weddings and other events.
Emily Lister
Richard came to my mums wedding/50th party (19.1.19), he provided a service that guests are still talking about days later. He played great music all night, he took requests & not only that but he also played a massive part in keeping everyone entertained throughout the evening. He is a true gentleman & would highly recommend! Thank you SO much Richard!

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.

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!
Jon Buss
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.
Jon March
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.
Claire Harris
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
Michelle Deacon

Absolutely fantastic evening well executed perfectly by Richard! Was nearly impossible to stay off the dance floor. Many thanks to you, from Mr and Mrs Flook!!!!!!!!!
Sandy Johnstone
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.
Chloe Lake
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! �����
Beth Wheeler
Just came from a 5year olds party and cant recommend Richard highly enough! Entertaining, brilliantly organised and great music! :)
Sarah Bale
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
Victoria 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!
Jill Bewes
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!
Debbie Elkins
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
Claire Herlihy

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.
Philip Lynn
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!
Marc Collins
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!
Lynne Rogers
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.

I have seen Richard work a few times, he is one of the best around as he engages perfectly with each audience. Highly recommended.

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.
Jill Daniels
Lucy Browne
Very friendly and professional. Richard offers an excellent service x
Claire Potts
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!
Anthony Lyons
Thank you for the fabulous party atmosphere you created at Kat and Jon's wedding on Saturday. Excellent choices of both old and new tracks which kept us dancing all night!
Janette Gray
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.
Helen Earnshaw
Hannah Pickard
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.
Marion Frances Eastland
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 ...
Mandy Blackler
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.
Richard J R Jones
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!

Kath Kilsby
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.
