DJ Neil Povey in red
About me

I'm Neil - or Nelly to friends and colleagues. I run a mobile DJ service for parties, weddings and other events, but much more too - I regularly MC events such as school fairs or fundraisers, host quiz nights and can help you with simple PA provision for your function, whether public, private or even in your home!

The world of primary teaching was my career for over 20 years before taking a break in 2016 to spend more time with my twins and on voluntary work (did someone say mid-life-crisis?!).

I hold a DBS certificate, have £10m in Public Liability Insurance and my equipment is PAT certificated I can provide evidence of all three ahead of any event. 

Because of my teaching experience, I specialise in school discos, children's birthday parties and other events for children, but am equally as happy DJing a wedding or 30th birthday, golden anniversary or retirement party, adapting to your needs and working with you to make your event perfect.



Professional and friendly DJ who read the room and helped create the perfect night for our joint birthday party. I would highly recommend Neil for any event.

Absolutely amazing. So accommodating (I have SEN children) great with the kids. Fabulous price. Great music. I am so glad we went with Neil and won’t go with anyone else from now on as he blows them off the dance floor. I cannot recommend enough. Thank you for an amazing day.

We hired Neil for our daughters 6th birthday. Neil is amazing DJ for kids and gets them involved and also himself into his flow of songs that he plays. His service and patience throughout is 100%

Neil entertains and keeps things flowing as a quiz master

Neil did a school disco at my daughter’s school yesterday and she's not stopped saying how good it was, particularly how much she enjoyed the cha chat slide and macarena. She may only be 7 but says it was 'the best disco ever'.

Neil helped to make my 60th Birthday Party a huge success. Great music. Lovely personality and perfectly organised. Excellent.

Neil has now done us a second 80's disco night for our Hailsham Bonfire Society fundraising events. He is an absolute star!!! A jolly good mix of hits, great atmosphere and he keeps the whole night going whereby nobody wants to sit down. Thanks Neil!!

Alison Ridley, Hailsham Bonfire Society

Fantastic service, professional and absolutely the perfect person for a kids birthday party disco, he could entertain the children for hours and knows exactly what music they want and all the actions for the most up to date songs. I’ve can also recommend Neil for quizzes, school discos and end of school proms, as part of the school PTA he has become an essential part of the school.

We choose Neil to do our wedding reception good old 80's style. I had been to a party he had done the music for before and loved it. Everyone up and dancing. Highly recommend.

Victoria Harris

I’d highly recommend Neil, we regularly use him at Roselands for school quizzes, discos and MC-ing all our events and he’s brilliant. He also DJ’d my birthday party this weekend and he was amazing, excellent playlist, got everyone up and dancing and even did a few tunes at the beginning (with dance routines) to entertain the children before us grown-ups got up and danced the night away!

Naomi Davies

Another great disco for my daughter's birthday! 2 years in a row and kids love it. Great entertainment for the kids and Neil always makes an extra effort to make it special for the birthday girl/boy. Thanks again
