Aldous Huxley once wrote: "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
And our DJ Pete could not agree more. Having been a student of music for, well, most of his life, Pete has been djing now for over 18 years, entertaining guests at parties and weddings, as well as on Radio Forth and Radio Lollipop. During the festive periods of 2010 - 2015, Pete performed at the Apex Grassmarket hotel. He is also now the resident disc jockey at the Apex Grassmarket hotel for all their events that require a disc jockey. Pete strongly believes in letting the music create the atmosphere, and compliments it with just the right amount of his own personality.
Pete played at the Hogmanay celebrations for Murrayfield Stadium in 2007, the Hoog at the Assembly Rooms in 2008 & 2009 and the Apex International hotel for 2010 - 2016, with performances being thoroughly enjoyed by the revellers. Creative Producer for the Hoog, Anya Thomson wrote:
Pete was just great ... superb stuff and what a lovely man! We would all very happily work with him again. I was very grateful that he was so plug and play. He kept the dance floor busy and jumping and was great. Please do pass on our tremendous thanks to him ... we were all absolutely delighted with him.
Thank you again for delivering top quality.
He also plays at kids' parties:
Just wanted to say how brilliant Pete was yesterday at our disco. Kids and parents loved him - he really kept the party going. We will be recommending him and your company to others.
Using the latest in computer technology, Pete has a vast collection of music which can cater for all ages and tastes. He has also developed a strong link with various ceilidh bands, and can perform ceilidh calling duties if required.
Pete knows how to get the party started and will keep you and your guests on the dance floor dancing to your requests. Following Pete's performance at a wedding, the delighted couple wrote;
Pete did a cracking job as DJ at our wedding reception - it's one thing to get people on the dancefloor; it's another to keep them there! Everyone at the party had a great time, and many commented on the great job Pete did. Would happily recommend to anyone.

No stranger to the world of corporate events, Pete's attention to detail is second to none, and he takes great pride in making your event that bit more special. He often turns his hand to the role of host or MC and Sally Cownie from the Grange Cricket Club said:
Just want to say that Pete our DJ for the night was absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to work with. He was totally flexible and very supportive running the dancethon. I don't often praise DJs!
Other client comments:
Thanks again for your help on our booking. We had a fantastic day/night and Pete was amazing. We caught up with Pete just before the night kicked off and he put us both a ease, explained everything which was a great help. Pete is very approachable and all the guests loved him! Your booking process is simple, which is perfect. You get all the information you need and we felt like all was under control and we could leave it to the professionals. Michelle.
On 24th may 2015, we got married at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh. Pete was our DJ and did a fantastic job. He tailored the music to meet our wedding party, played music that kept the dance floor busy, and helped create a wedding vibe. Right up to the end of the night he kept the party going and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music. Well done Pete and thank you. Mr and Mrs Barr.
Thank you for Everything last night - Pete was brilliant. Cheers. Paul & Lesley.
We both loved the DJ. Pete kept everyone dancing all night - which is all anyone can ask for. Derek & Chris.
I did thank Pete for Saturday, he was brilliant. Everything went well and everyone was up dancing all night and I think they would have carried on into the early hours of Sunday morning if they had been able to! Thank you and Pete so much for making the party a great success. Kind regards, Susan.
I was really pleased with Pete. The night got off to a great start and everyone was dancing. Dawn.
