Richard Welsh, DJ & Party Entertainer in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch & Dorset
I have been a DJ and party entertainer for over 40 years and really love and enjoy my job. Nothing beats the buzz of a busy dance floor with the crowd having a wonderful time.
Before moving from London to the South Coast, I had a very enjoyable and varied career in the entertainment industry. I was lucky to have enjoyed club residencies in the 70/80/90s playing all the club classics first time round! I have fond memories of working with chart acts of the time including Rick Astley, Mel & Kim, Bros, Second Image, Mud, Darts & Human League. I was also worked with top Radio 1 and London’s Capital Radio DJ’s learning a lot from the experience. After discovering that I also had some comedy talent, I took a break from being a DJ. I was then lucky enough to be involved in various touring theatre and club shows across the UK and Europe. This also resulted in TV appearances including – This Morning, Des O’Connor Show, 6 O’clock Show (LWT), Taggart and many more.
Since moving to Bournemouth in 2004 I have established myself in the area as a reliable and experienced DJ and Entertainer and have hosted a variety of events.
In the last few years I have decided to concertrate on birthday celebrations and events for clients who have requested classic disco or soul nights. This has led to be offered work by Champagne Soul (A popular Facebook page) to DJ for their venues.
I am able to offer my experience and advice for your special celebration, working with you to make it a memorable occasion.
