The chances are, most of our customer will never meet Lucy at an event, but that doesn’t mean she's not important! Lucy is forever working hard behind the scenes to ensure that the business runs without a hitch.
Just a phone call away, Lucy will have the answer. Lucy takes responsibility of all our legal responsibilities, administration duties and works extremely hard with promotion and advertising. Every successful business needs a "Legal Lucy".
Our newest member of the team, is Ben. We feel it is important to bring fresh blood into the industry, and Ben's drive and enthusiasm for the event industry has made him stand out from the crowd.
Ben is currently working hard at a large number of our events and has even tried his hand at DJ'ing. We're confident it won’t be long until Ben is managing your next event.
As the "Main Man" at Phunky Disco & Event Services, Dan will usually be your first point of contact. A highly experienced party DJ, Disco-Dan has had a strong interest in the entertainment industry ever since he can remember. Whether it was the school nativity play or a house party with a hi-fi, Dan was never too far from the controls!!
Dan's Professional career started off as a mobile party DJ but he was soon snapped up by a promoter and became a popular DJ in the local clubs and late night venues. Dan has been trained by The Ministry of sound DJ Academy and works closely with other local DJ’s to share tips and ideas. Dan has a hunger for success (and McNuggets) and is always looking for new ways to be creative and to make each event one to remember.
Dan is often a popular choice of DJ for Christmas and New Year Parties, and also with weddings and corporate events due to his professional manner and eye for detail. Dan loves nothing more than connecting with the guests on the dance floor to ensure that they have as much fun as he does!
Whether it’s the latest chart music, a slow dance, or even The Macarena…. Disco-Dan Is Your Man!!!
Matt is a key player in the running of Phunky Disco & Event services.
He likes to work alongside Dan and phone him at least 10 times a day (we're not joking!).
Matt is always there to give a helping hand or a 2nd opinion and has the passion to ensure that every event is a success. Matt is always trying to come up with new and creative ideas to ensure we are the best at what we do.
Matt is a keen DJ and has also been trained by The Ministry of sound DJ Academy in London.
Matt has performed at a number of our larger events, playing everything from modern day Chart music and House tracks, through to Garage and some of the finest 80's tracks around.
Matt is also a popular hit with the local venues and has played at a number of bars and clubs around Kent and East Sussex. Matt likes to get involved in everything we do, that’s why we say..... "Matt Saul does it all!".
Sam is a DJ with over 4 years experience and has worked for Phunky Disco for 3 of these years. Sam has had a strong passion for the industry since getting his first turntables at the age of 16 and he quickly realised he wanted to be a DJ for the long term.
After just a year of practising he grabbed his first residency at a club in Kent playing everything from the common chart to the deep underground. Not long after, he bagged his first set at London’s renowned XOYO and shortly after got a taste for DJ sets playing at local clubs in his home town and working himself a fantastic reputation which landed him a set at LIGHTBOX LONDON as a support act for DR. DRU, MAT, JOE and REKREATION for "WE BELONG'S" first launch party.
Sam is trained for all of the services that we offer, and has a great attitude towards customer satisfaction, If Sam is covering one of our local Bar or Club residencies, he's busy DJ'ing or Photo-bombing at one of our weddings!!
Mark started his DJ career when he was just 16 years old. Now at 47, he has many years of experience at hand.
Just like Dan, Mark still carries a strong interest within this industry we call entertainment as well as being an extremely friendly and warming character. There is never a dull moment with Mark around!
His attention for details come from working in theatres as backstage technical crew.
(He has even tried his hand act singing and dancing on the big stage, but we prefer him as a DJ).
Mark also has another interesting job of supplying specialist vehicles to the television industry, which has seen him on many tv shows in past years. (He doesnt shut up about his cameo part on EastEnders!)
With this in mind, Marks passion to entertain remains paramount.
Mark's DJ career has seen him play at a wide, varied selection of venues, both weird and wonderful.
From clients living rooms, conservatories, a canal boat and a train carriage, through to pubs, village halls, barns, clubs & marquees and many high end venues including the Savoy Hotel.
This experience speaks high testament to Mark, making him a very popular versatile member of the team!
