We cater for both Private and Corporate Functions
Birthday, anniversary, and Christmas parties
Our music library is very extensive with tracks from the 1920s to the 1980s. We can keep
the music genre specific for a 1940s theme or, for a more generic vintage theme, we can mix
the decades to your specifications. However, it should be noted that we do not hold
any music in our library past 1989, with the exception of current artists who recreate the music
of the past.
Shaun Moncaster, our DJ, has over 40 years experience as a mobile DJ in all music genres, but his
first love is in vintage music and now specialises in this area. Shaun is also the Manager of The UK
1940s Radio Station and is experienced at putting together the right playlist to help your party go with a swing.

Don't just let us tell you about our services, let our clients say!
I just wanted to express my thanks for coming along and giving us your time and expertise this weekend.
The Home Guard Returns went down really well with our visitors and I had several appreciative comments from them,
old and young. Plus we got some good TV coverage, which can't be bad. I think it is a really important and
interesting part of our history, not least because it sits so oddly with people’s perceptions of what the house
is about, so a massive thank you for bringing that to life for everyone. I know you had a really traumatic
journey here and so even more respect to you that you bothered to come at all! I am so glad you did though as
you really pulled the whole thing together, making it go with much more of a swing (no pun intended!)
Karina, Visitor Experience & Marketing Manager, Osterley Park & House, The National Trust
I hope you have both managed to travel safely.I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you both for a fantastic show
on Friday night. We had a brilliant night and we were delighted by your company's contribution to the evening, such a professional
presentation that made the whole night go smoothly. It has been commented on by many people how good your radio show was.
As I said on the night I will pass your details onto people with regard to conference events etc.
Philip Mabon, Creative Manager, Floramedia UK
What can I say?! A total pleasure to work with you and all your team - all hugely professional, helpful and talented.
Thank you so much for all you did to make the Royal British Legion's 65 VE Day celebrations in central London a success,
and I very much hope we shall work together again in the future. with best wishes from all at the Legion
Teresa Greener, Head of Events, The Royal British Legion
Thank you for your email, and thank you ever so much for your involvement at the VE Day event.
The music sounded great and really added to the event! I will be listening tomorrow night and I shall certainly be in contact again next year.
Anna Saczek, Education Coordinator, Royal Gunpowder Mills
Thank you for providing such a wonderful service at my 40th
party last weekend. The ‘jive disco’ was just brilliant and you
were both so friendly and helpful ...The set up you have was just
perfect and really fitted into our venue. The music was
brilliant...I am just so glad I did a Google search and found you
as you really made the night special – it was just perfect.
