wedding dj & disco hire in Sheffield and Derbyshire

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 Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Derby and Nottingham

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 Yorkshireman. 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 Sheffield, Derbyshire Peak District, Nottinghamshire and Stoke

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 Derby, Sheffield, Stoke, Nottingham and Rotherham

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 Jonathan Wright

DJ Rick Cage



DJ Rick Cage plays rock, metal, punk, as well as soul, funk, hip hop and drum n bass bookings in Sheffield 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 Jackson Lee

Tareck (his non DJ name), has been involved in music since his teens, DJing, managing bands, singing, writing reviews, promoting nights and radio. His most recent radio show 'Sticks and Stones' is a weekly Friday night show on BCB radio in Bradford, playing a range of funky dance, soul, jazz fusion, classic breaks, rare groove and funk.

He has always been influenced by guitar crossover music such as bands like The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Funkadelic and Prince, although claims his number 1 influence is James Brown.

Having played Festivals around Europe, club nights in Leeds and Manchester, as well as weddings, birthdays and special occasions for the last 10 years, Jackson Lee loves nothing more than a good time and a dance floor full of party people!

She is passionate about music and has worked all over Yorkshire in many hotels and bars, DJing at weddings and parties. Seeing a full dance floor with everyone singing and dancing along is her main motivation. Her favourite types of music to play are Motown and pop and rock.

I got to know Dan some years ago, as part of his work with DJ School. He has been passing on his turntable skills for a number of years now to new, upcoming DJs. Needless to say he now covers a wide variety of styles of music.

He's very capable of playing a party, as well as having the technical prowess and is a very flexible DJ.

DJ Rick Andrews



book DJ Rick Andrews for dance music, 18ths 21sts, 30th birthdays, weddings and parties in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and Derbyshire

Rick is always looking to new technology for ideas of how he can improve his sets, which is why he currently tries to use all formats for Djing i.e. Vinyl/Laptop/CDJs and FX.

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”.

He's now giving back some of his hard earned knowledge to new DJs, via DJ School in Leeds, as well as playing private events for ourselves up and down the country.
