LONG ESTABLISHED, EXPERIENCED COMPANY SINCE 1976
Sights 'n' Sounds is a professional business.
It was formed back in 1976 by Mike Hobson and Trevor Whitehouse.
Mike is still the full time operator of the business along with our main DJ, Kevin.
When you make a booking with Sights 'n' Sounds you know that with over 40 years experience in the business, you are getting the best service available in East Anglia. Every booking is different. 'Knowing' the audience and 'reading' the reaction to the music is something you can't be taught. You cannot have a set programme of music, playing the right record at the right time only comes with experience.
This is your event, so we listen carefully to your requirements and are always willing to discuss with you the various options, to get the best set up for your event.
ALL AGE GROUPS AND EVENTS
If you are a Wedding or Events Organiser for a Hotel, Company or Club, or just someone you wants to arrange a special Family event, you need to know that the entertainment will be professional, knowledgeable and above all aimed specifically at the event you are organising.
We can provide a wide range of services, from a Grand Wedding in a hotel or marquee, to a Corporate Event at Newmarket Racecourse or Center Parcs to a Local Festival on a Village Green, from a Cabaret Night at a Social Club to a Barbeque in a Barn on a farm.
THE PROFESSIONAL TOUCH
We have been involved in a vast number of events over the years, working with many well known personalities and chart topping bands. In the early years we appeared with bands such as, The Foundations (Build Me Up Buttercup) - The Fortunes (You've Got Your Troubles) - Les Gray & Mud (Tiger Feet)
In more recent years in the 90s and early 2000's we have worked with BBCtv presenter, Stewart White (Look East), Radio presenters from KISS FM & (HEART) SGR. Later we were involved at Club Brazilia presenting a season of live music featuring local bands, and in 2010 we were involved with the long running Woolpit Festival appearing with one of the top Beatles tribute bands.
SIGHTS 'N' SOUNDS IS ALWAYS WILLING TO DISCUSS LONG TERM CONTRACTS WITH WEDDING ORGANISERS, HOTELS AND CORPORATE EVENTS VENUES, OFFERING VERY COMPETITIVE RATES AND AN UNEQUALLED SERVICE WITH A VERY FLEXIBLE EQUIPMENT CONFIGURATION TO SUIT ALL VENUES AND EVENTS FOR UP TO 300 GUESTS. OUR COVERAGE IS ABOUT A FIFTY MILE RADIUS OF OUR BASE IN BURY ST EDMUNDS.
ALL MUSIC STYLES
With over 70,000 songs in our music library, we can cater for all styles of music, from the 40s to the latest chart sounds, including every number 1 single from 1952 to this week's chart. This means we can offer a theme to your event, should you wish it. Just let us know the music style you would like and we'll make sure we have all the songs you would like.
We guarantee to have every song requested before the event.
Having the right music on the night is essential, particularly for a wedding. The first slow song requested by the bride and groom is probably the most important song of the whole evening. This is why we always ask our clients for a play list before the event. Song request forms are always placed on the tables during set up, so you can request songs throughout the evening.
