DJ Darren Baxter

Darren joined the company after he mailed me a phenomenal mix tape. He covers all areas of music and has a great knack of dropping the right tune at the right time. Whether he is playing a straight up party set, or something more eclectic, he can move seamlessly through styles.

He is now based in Chesterfield, so covers a lot of mobile DJ and wedding work in Sheffield, Derbyshire, Nottingham, etc, but still also covers Leeds, York, Bradford and other parts of Yorkshire too. He is a good choice for marquee based events, as he has sound engineering experience too.

DJ Mark Hepworth

mobile DJ Mark Hepworth plays northern soul, motown, funk, ska, reggae, r&b, punk & indie in Yorkshire and the Dales

Hi-Life Entertainment was set up by me, but we are not your typical one man operation, having a team of three full time staff.

What I bring to the table (whether as DJ or agent), is over 25 years working full time in music. I have played guitar in bands, owned and managed a couple of record shops and have been a full time DJ now since 2006. As a result there are not too many types of music I don't know about, old and new, underground and mainstream.

I got into music through punk rock and bands like the Clash, who opened my mind to many diverse areas of music, especially those from different cultures and continents.

I still buy masses of vinyl records for club and bar DJing, but use a digital set up for weddings and parties, running Traktor.

I also head up the Jazz Club Collective, alongside Barry Smyth (Barryshere)

He also worked at a number of wedding venues

After hanging up his headphones for a while, he organised a mini festival for his own birthday. 300 people and two marques made for a great weekend and rekindled the DJ and event organiser in him. He has been busy for the last 12 years entertaining at weddings and events, organising and DJing at Bike Rallies. His Street Theatre side occasionally creeps in to his work, as he's been known to throw in, the odd bit of fire eating. If you are wanting a Rock, Metal or Indie specialist. Look him up. He is very versatile though and cover everything from ABBA to Zappa.
