We have a wide variety of DJ's that we work with regularly with a variety of different genres. You are also welcome to provide your own DJ’s / band for your event but please note that all music entertainment is required to use our sound system as it’s set to sound regulations in the area.
With exclusive venue hire our basic sound system is included as well as our awesome pre-selected playlists or you are also welcome to play your own playlists on this system via laptop / MP3 player. For DJ's / bands the extra sound equipment required (mixer & bigger speakers plus sub woofer) is additional charge of R3,000. This excludes any equipment required by the DJ (XDJ’s / CDJ’s / Vinyl Decks) or the bands (instruments / microphones etc), the performer needs to bring their own.
Please note that due to sound restrictions in the area we require loud sound to go down at 10pm.
