Wedding DJ Hire from the Hi-Life in Scotland


Since I founded the company, back in 2006 from my record shop (Soul Alley) in Leeds our mobile DJs have played over a thousand weddings up and down the country. We opened our Edinburgh branch in 2009, covering southern Scotland when DJ Dan Moore moved north of the border. Our Music Planner service means that every wedding set is unique & tailored to the couple's wishes. You can find more information on our promotional video, on the equipment page & the main page of the site.

Below you can read some testimonials from just a small selection of the weddings we have DJ'd at in the last couple of years.

We have played a number of civil partnerships & have now played 4 gay weddings since the change in the law, something that we are proud to be involved with.

As I only update the site periodically (at quiet times of the year) I email up to date feedback as a text file to you if you make an enquiry. This won't just be from weddings, but also birthday parties & corporate events.

Thanks,
Mark Hi-Life

Venue:  Lodge on the Loch, Loch Lomond

DJ:  Dan Moore

Music genres:  indie, soul, ska, electro &pop

Favourite track(s):  The Jam "Town Called Malice", the Specials "Too Much Too Young" & David Bowie - Modern Love

They said:  "If you want a bit of funky music that gets everyone of all ages dancing, then I highly recommend Dan! Struggled to find a DJ or band that would suit our taste but keep the Aunties happy too! Dan managed it and had everyone dancing from start to finish."

They said:  "We had an amazing DJ set at our wedding.  The dance floor was heaving all night.  Hi-life were a dream to work with - they found out loads about the type of music we like then Dan built an incredible DJ set around that and responded really well to the crowd on the night.  They also found out how much "audience input" we wanted into the choice of tracks on the night and this gives you the option to limit the amount of requests from your guests, if you're worried about your auntie's dodgy taste in music!
