Alan has been a professional DJ for 22 years. He’s very happy to please any type of crowd and is considered the wedding specialist. He regularly receives compliments back from every happy couple he has entertained on their special day.

Whatever your taste in music, Alan usually has it within the region of 250,000 songs in his collection. His music tastes cover quite a wide range, from 60’s to present, pop, rock, charts, dance/house to old school and rave.
Alan has regular bookings from The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, in Edinburgh as he is their resident festive party & Hogmanay Ball D.J. of choice.
Alan started in the music business when he was 13 years old and he has never stopped. He used to do the warm up tapes for the Ministry of Sound, Alan has played Planet Peach/Cube/the Arches, (Glasgow) Reflections, (Livingston) Bigluv, (Alloa) The Velvet rooms(Glasgow) & The Universe (Coatbridge) to name a few but always found time to do birthdays and weddings.
Alan's favourite disco memories:
"Planet peach performing with The Fun loving criminals."
"At a previous residency, The Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor Christmas party season 2008. We had a mad 80's disco set with one of the companies who joined us. They knew all the dances for Fame and many more, I wish I'd brought the leg warmers and a camcorder.!!"
We would like to thank Alan for doing such a great job at our Wedding Reception, the dance floor was always busy and everyone had a great time. He judged the crowd very well with his mix of music and we continue to receive great feedback from our guests. I must say that the booking service through yourself was very professional and we always got a quick response from any queries. We will certainly not hesitate to recommend Buena Vista Entertainments in the future. Laura
I just wanted to drop you a note about our wedding and Alan. It was epic. First and foremost I want to thank Alan who helped make it a fabulous day, he was professional throughout, we barely even noticed him setting up behind us. The music is such a big part of a night like ours and it was exactly what we were looking for, the right blend of our dodgy song requests and songs that actually got people up dancing. The best praise I can give a Alan is that the floor was full all night with lots of people commenting on how good the music was. Alan was also very accommodating with my mad-cap silent disco ideas which fitted in nicely during the buffet break. Alan made the effort a few times through the night of seeking me out to chat and make sure that everything was going as we wanted, a really good touch. Andrew
Thank you for your faultless service in the run up to our wedding. We would like you to pass on our sincere thanks to Alan, he delivered everything we asked and more, including Graham's little boogie surprise during our first dance . Many of our guests have commented on the great selection of music and we totally agree that Alan really helped to top off a fantastic day with a great party atmosphere suited to all ages. We are so grateful for BV and Alan's brilliant service and would be happy to recommend you to others. Huge thanks and kind regards, Alison & Graham.
Thank you for arranging this, you made it so easy and such a simple process. Alan was fantastic, looked the part and very professional. He had a tough crowd to please including my mum and he nailed it, nearly everyone was up dancing and so many of my guests commented on how fantastic the variety of music was. I would certainly recommend your service and Alan to anyone. Many thanks, Terry.
Alan was absolutely fantastic on Saturday night, all our guests commented on how amazing the music was and I honesty don't think the dance floor was empty once over the course of the evening! As always thank you so much! Please pass our comments on to Alan who is always externally professional & always puts 110% into his job! Much love The New Mr & Mrs Boyle
We thought Alan was fantastic he played all the music we had requested and managed to keep everyone on the dancefloor, it was such an amazing night he managed to read what everyone was enjoying and keeping that music playing he even played one final tune at the end which everyone was asking for it was great.
Please send my thanks to Alan for his 'services' last Saturday. Everyone was very impressed and the music was just as requested - the dance floor was always busy and he just kept everything moving smoothly. He was also very amiable and helpful and was a major part in the success of the night. Sue.
Paula's 21st party went really well, helped by Alan and his DJing. Can thoroughly recommend Buena Vista for this type of event. Thanks again. Lindsay.
We had an amazing day and night. Alan played a huge part in that. We can only thank you guys from the bottom our hearts and we would recommend your services any time.... a first class service! Thanks again. Alan and Angela.
We were really pleased to have Alan DJ for us. Alan played all the songs we had selected and added in other tracks that got people moving on the dance floor. He was really friendly and accommodating and everyone had a great time. He was good fun and nothing was too much trouble! The booking process was really straight forward and selecting the first dance, last dance and other tracks we wanted worked really well. Thanks for arranging this, it is much appreciated. Jacquie.
Alan was great on Friday, really nice guy, obliging and the dance floor was never empty! Our friends have described it as ' a rave in the cave' We had a great night and would recommend to anyone to book through Buena Vista Entertainments! Alexis & Colin.
D.J. Alan was brilliant at Aimée and Nik's wedding at the Rowantree. After directing the wedding, it was a great relief to be able to leave everything to him and he kept the dance floor lively all evening. It was such fun. Anne (mother of the bride).
Thanks it was a fantastic night -Alan did an amazing job with the music - the youngsters (and not so young) danced all night. Catrina.
Alan was absolutely brilliant we couldn't have asked for better so thank you very much for providing such a great service. You've been a great help to us in the run-up to the big day and made everything very easy for us. Thanks so much again and we'll definitely be recommending your company to friends and family. Thanks again. Elaine and Ryan Simpson.
A shockingly late THANK YOU for the most fantastic entertainment you provided at our wedding on 27th April. We can't tell you how much we appreciate you playing EVERYTHING that we asked for, it made for the most perfect night and the only complaints were from the auld y'uns whose knees didn't permit them onto the dance floor, that we spent the entire night on the dance floor!!! Your professionalism throughout the booking and on the night was exceptional. We have no hesitation in providing a testimonial and recommending you to anyone who isn't afraid to get down and disco. Many, many thanks for making our special day as special as it could be. Susan and Kenneth
Buena Vista catered to my every OCD whim and I am eternally grateful to Dougie and Alan for their patience with my never ending playlist! The music made my party!Thanx guys and see you at my 50th!!!
