wedding dj & disco hire in Liverpoool, Lancashire and Fylde Coast

Meet the DJs



See below DJs available for hire via Hi-Life.


In most circumstances your DJ will be selected based primarily upon the music that you are looking for, as well as the location of the event and availability. You can of course request a quote to book a specific DJ.



DJ Ziggy



DJ Ziggy mixes across the board styles of music seamlessly in Lancashire including Liverpool Clitheroe and Boland

Former record label owner, producer and massive music fan of all genres, DJ Ziggy needs little in the way of hype. You can see him on our promotional video, shot in February 2014.

Ziggy has been with us since the company started out in 2006, as he was a frequent visitor to my record shop. He is now a full time member of our team, responsible for client and venue liaison and DJ training too.

He started out being influenced by the original breaks, from early jazz, funk and reggae (his family hail from Barbados), although he is very much a northerner. He plays all styles of music, contemporary and retro from funk and soul, to disco, hip-hop, indie and rock, deep and funky house, urban and electronica.

DJ Darren Baxter



DJ Darren Baxter plays funk, northern soul, motown, indie, disco & house in the lancashire area

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 DJ work in Sheffield, Derbyshire, Nottingham, etc, but still also covers Manchester, Cheshire and Leeds too. He also is a full time member of our team, so you may be hearing from him, even if he is not booked for your event to liaise with you. He is a good choice for marquee based events, as he has sound engineering experience too.

DJ Mark Hepworth



DJ Mark Hepworth plays northern soul, motown, funk, ska, reggae, r&b, punk & indie in Lancashire Fylde Coast, Liverpool and Boland

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)

DJ Jim Bluefoot



hire DJ Jim Bluefoot for funk, hip hop, breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, ska & 2tone in Liverpool Ellesmere Port and Merseyside

Jim has been with us at Hi-Life from day one. As a promoter & DJ I have known him since the mid 90's when he promoted some brilliant nights at the legendary Leeds Warehouse (It's Obvious and Cushion).

He does less parties for me these days, as he runs DJ School, teaching young people DJ skills.

He is a man who can turn his hands to most styles, including hip hop, breaks, funk and soul, disco, rave and old skool, dubstep, bass, ghetto funk, as well as indie and rock.

DJ Charlie C



bookings for DJ Charlie C, playing house, chart, rnb, grime, dubstep, dancehall, bashment in Lancashire area

Charles joined up with Hi-Life in 2012. He has made a big impression in that time and has become one of the key DJs, playing weddings and lots of 18th and 21st birthday parties

He has years of experience DJing, both in his native Sheffield and also on the continent.

Like myself he is a former record shop owner and whilst he is mostly known for playing urban music and dance he can cover many styles, as he has an extensive knowledge of music old and contemporary

He has a massive presence, but you couldn't meet a nicer guy.

DJ Rich Banks



bookings for DJ Rich Banks, Rich plays sixties mod, motown, northern soul, funk, rock and roll and indie in Liverpool, Bolton, Wigan, Preston and Clitheroe

Rich also joined Hi-Life in 2012, and has featured regularly in that time, having a residency with myself in Leeds, playing northern soul, Motown, ska, rocksteady and funk, as well as playing diverse private parties.

He is very good at working to a brief and covering specialist sets.

Rich also covers Rock & indie and is very good at doing Craig Charles type sets too.

In his spare time Rich produces his own music and is heavily influenced by legendary drummer Bernard Purdie.

DJ Rick Cage



DJ Rick Cage plays rock, metal, punk, as well as soul, funk, hip hop and drum n bass in the Lancs area

20 years as a touring musician, club DJ and producer. Rick has seen and done plenty. His formative years were in some of London’s most notorious and legendary venues. Either slinging a guitar or spinning some of the dirtiest underground tracks imaginable at places like The Marquee, The Electric Ballroom, Electrowerkz and the Underworld.

In recent times he’s reinvented himself as someone capable of handling any style, doing weddings and parties, and has a reputation for solid reliability and old fashioned hard work.

Rumours however that his eyes light up with secret and burning pleasure when asked to spin Rock, Metal and Punk may have some truth to them. Lets face it. The hair is a dead giveaway.

DJ Fuzzy Jones



DJ Fuzzy Jones, Hi-Life's first female DJ, playing funk & soul & more on vinyl for weddings, parties & club events

When sunset is upon us and day turns to night Fuzzy Jones turns into Funk-Soul DJ, B-Side Girl. Playing pure vinyl (which is rare these days).

She has supplied musical entertainment for many events, club nights and fundraisers, across the country, over the last 12 years, including the Hifi Club (Funk Soul Nation and Move On Up), the Wardrobe and residencies at North Bar and the Midnight Bell, Leeds.

Her main specialities are deep funk, soul, northern soul, disco, sixties, psychedelia, 50's and 60's RnB, glam rock and a touch of rock and roll.

She also has a successful singing career (see link below).

Ritchie is a very experienced DJ and has a passion for lots of styles of music. I'm really pleased to have him on board.

Rick started out playing clubs and parties over in his native Grimsby. From there, he moved to Leeds to study a Music Technology Degree and learned how to put his own music together. Whilst there he met many like-minded individuals and secured residencies at a House/Tech Night “Control”.
