Southampton University Graduation Ball 2012

I had a lot of fun on Tuesday as the DJ in The Bar Quarter for Southampton University’s Graduation ball.  The graduation celebrations were held in the 2500 capacity Oceana.

Walk-on Music

My role was to DJ in the comedy room (not in a comedy way!) and to introduce some of the acts.  Mark Little hosted the comedy part of the evening, so I had the privilege of introducing him on to the stage and to play his walk-on music.  The other stars of the show were Charlie Baker and Shappi Khorsandi.

Competition from the other two rooms

I was pleased to keep the room busy for the duration of the evening, despite tough competition later on from Chris Stark, The Cuban Boys, Annie Mac & Pixie Lott.  Not forgetting Southampton Uni DJs Adrian and Jamie!

Chesney Hawkes

Chesney performed original material and some well chosen cover versions to a packed room.  As expected, he received an amazing response from the audience!


I took a survivors photo at 4am and was very pleased to see that my part of the venue was still busy, see above…

Over the years

I’ve had the chance to perform at numerous graduation events over the years and would welcome the opportunity to host and DJ at more events.

My experience includes performing at over 150 events for 1000+ guests and I’ve been privileged to work with numerous well known faces including Scott Mills, Vernon Kay, Holly Willoughby, Edith Bowman, Fearne Cotton, Colin Murray, The Cutup Boys & The Fun Lovin’ Criminals.
