30th Dec 2015 Shiningford Manor, Ashbourne

Birthday Party Karaoke & PA Hire

We hired a karaoke set up which allowed us to also plug in an electric guitar and an electric drum kit. The equipment sounded excellent and was exactly what we needed. Dave was really helpful and professional in advising what gear we needed and in ensuring that we understood how it all worked. Things couldn't have gone any better... Would highly recommend. Many thanks.

Hen Party DIY Karaoke Hire

As an event planner I deal with many different suppliers and have to say Dave was one of the best, was so helpful, friendly and his customer service was first class. We hired a karaoke machine for a private party and it was excellent quality, we could choose all the songs beforehand from a huge up-to-date catalogue and they delivered, set up and showed us how to operate it all on the day. Would highly recommend them and thanks again Dave.

30th Birthday Disco & Karaoke

Dave was lovely from day one, extremely fast responses to all enquiries and grade A professional service from the word go. The equipment was great from the lights to the karaoke down to the songs - super modern tracks right down to the oldies on both music played and karaoke. You can make a request list for the night including songs you don't want which is great if like me you've got songs that grate on you! Top chap and top service from first contact to the end of the event, thoroughly recommended :)

Just a quick note to say thanks so much for your help at the Fantasy Con karaoke session. You were easily the most professional, easy to deal with and well set up karaoke operator we've ever dealt with. We had a brilliant night, with lots of (slightly off key) singing, so thanks so much for making it so easy.

Leaver's Party Disco & Karaoke

I had a party for my 16 year old daughter this week that Dave provided the disco and karoke for. He instilled me with confidence through his communication prior to the event, ensuring me we would have everything we needed for a good night. On the day he arrived two hours before to ensure a thorough set up. He made his equipment and lighting fit perfectly into our home giving the evening a real party disco atmosphere. Dave was fantastic and the teens danced all night and queued up to sing! I can not recommend his services enough and would definitely use Solar Entertainments again. A very professional company. Thank you Dave.

Family Party Disco & Karaoke

Dave was very punctual, nothing was too much trouble and everyone had a really good time. Music was, as we'd requested, for all ages, was lovely to see the younger children taking part in the karaoke. We will definitely be contacting you again for future parties. Would highly recommend your service, really good value for money.

18th Birthday Disco

I can not recommend Dave too highly. He was the DJ for my sons 18th birthday and he was brilliant. We had a late start due to my sons cricket match finishing late and Dave was unable to set up until the lads had vacated part of the cricket club - but he more than met the challenge. He set up the sound and lights in record time and really got the party going. We left the choice of music up to him and he was great - he had everyone on the dance floor all night. Dave really made the party and we will definitely use him at our next celebration.

Wedding DIY Karaoke & PA Hire

Dave was really responsive from the word go and was so accommodating to our needs. Not only that, he also agreed to help us with relatively short notice and delivered the kit on time and gave full clear instructions. Really pleased with the service we got. Dave is a star.

3rd May 2015 Tissington Hall, Ashbourne

Thank you so much to Dave for being the perfect wedding DJ - the party was so much fun, the music was exactly what we asked for and the karaoke went down a storm with all ages!! He let the room lead his song choices, and not once did he interrupt the flow of the night or voice over any songs with standard 'dj waffle'! Great value service, and highly recommended by both of us :-).

40th Birthday Disco

28th March 2015 HCYA Hall, Sheffield

Dave turned up on time and set up in a very unobtrusive way for my wife's 40th birthday party. He played music that was suitable for the occasion starting with children's stuff early on and then moving on to good dancing music later when most of the children had left. He had all the music requested and was friendly and helpful throughout.

Wedding DIY Karaoke Hire

13th February 2015 Denton Hall, Ilkley

From start to finish Dave was brilliant. We hired a DIY Karaoke system on 13th February 2015 for the party we were having the night before our wedding. I first enquired on the internet after finding Solar Entertainment on the internet. I got a reply straight away, even though it was late at night. Dave explained our options and was happy to advise us on the equipment we needed, and was flexible bringing extra speakers etc with him on the day of setting up but he only charged us for what we used. He was very flexible about timings for setting up and coming back for his equipment. He was very punctual and professional setting up and showing my husband how to use the equipment. When he came to pick up the equipment on Sunday he arrived on time and was really friendly. The service provided by Solar Entertainments was fantastic and we would happily recommend them to anyone.

30th birthday disco Haggler's Corner Sheffield January 2015We booked Dave for my 30th birthday party. Everything was arranged easily via email, playlists, venue details etc and he arrived early to set up which was really helpful.

9th January 2015 Castle Cliffe, Monsal Head

Very efficient service, Dave arrived on time, set up the karaoke system and had optional lighting available that was suitable for the room in use. He took the time to go through each piece of equipment and possible problem solving for myself who is not very technology minded! Also an instruction guide was left that we did use once. Dave left his number to contact if we required it, however we were fully up and running and singing our hearts out. This was a worthwhile contribution to my 40th birthday weekend away with family and friends. The karaoke machine was collected on time and I would recommend this efficient and friendly service in the future.
