DJ Darren Baxter

mobile DJ Darren Baxter plays funk, northern soul, motown, indie, disco & house in Manchester and Cheshire

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 Manchester, Knutsford, High Peak

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 Rich Banks

DJ Rick Cage

DJ Rick Cage plays rock, metal, punk, as well as soul, funk, hip hop and drum n bass in Greater Manchester

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.

Tareck (his non DJ name), has been involved in music since his teens, DJing, managing bands, singing, writing reviews, promoting nights and radio.
