DJ Hire in Derby

Mobile DJs in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester & Beyond

Derby Mobile Discos has been offering DJ hire in Derby and surrounding areas since 1993 and continues to expand the area we cover to accommodate our popularity. Founder Nik Smith has now expanded the business using only trusted and experienced professionals to cover more areas of the East Midlands. Our cover area includes Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, Warwickshire, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. We’re extremely proud to be working all over the midlands, and hope to continue our great reputation through your testimonials and recommendations!


Established 1993

Having witnessed so many disappointing parties, weddings and private events ourselves, it became our obsession to provide only the best equipment and of course the most entertaining DJs to our clients.  We’ve witnessed enough terrible discos so that you don’t have to! Professionalism, quality entertainment & a disco that looks and sounds amazing. Everyone “knows a DJ who can do it cheap”, but when looking for DJ hire in Derby – you get what you pay for! Don’t book a disco on price alone! If you’re searching for a wedding DJ for your special day, it’s likely you’ve already spent a great deal on the finder detail of your meal and reception. The evening entertainment is the longest part of the celebration and you want your guests to enjoy it. We can transform your wedding venue with uplighters, light up dancefloors and of course a great looking disco with nightclub standard lights that don’t look like a 70s throwback act.


Our DJs

All of the DJs we use are industry professionals. This means they work (or have worked) full time as a nightclub DJ, radio DJ or mobile DJ in some capacity within the last 5 years. We only use a select few DJs who we know and trust, because reliability is one of the key factors we and our clients depend upon. The majority of our work is undertaken by Nik Smith our founder, who with 17+ years in the nightclub and radio industry has a diverse knowledge of music and is able to play to a wide range of ages. For more unique parties we have a select few DJs whom we use to provide specialist nights such as Motown & Northern Soul or urban-lead genres such as R&B and hip-hop. Our experience as a company has made us quite choosy over who we work with. Radio DJs always have a clear microphone voice, which is paramount to any form of entertainment so we value their skills and music knowledge. Club DJs are able to bring a modern twist to events with mixing, scratching, sampling and live mashups that you’d hear in popular late night venues across the UK, which many of our clients prefer to your typical ‘Disco Dave’. Of course, we do offer a full range of music for every occasion though, as most parties will have a broad age range to accommodate. We can play everything from the 70s 80s 90s and 00s with a good helping of chart music. Through our work with events companies, leisure companies and high class wedding venues we’ve come to realise that only the best will do, and that’s what keeps our business growing.

The DJ we booked for my 21st was amazing! He knew all the chart and house music we wanted and didn't bore us with all the cheesy stuff! All my friends want you for theirs!
