So last night was a party at the lovely village hall in Tockwith for a young lad called Kai. At 13 he had invited half the year from school along with other friends. He had provided a playlist a week before of all his favourite tunes. I have to say I got on the wave length here and added some real club classics that went down a storm. As you would imagine the party went a little like a Hurd of baby elephants, running inside and outside and then inside again, following each other like sheep and so on. Very funny to watch. After the party the parents Jonny and Zoe and I exchanged stories about the night and it sounded more boystrous outside than in. To be fair it was a cracking night and the venue at Tockwith was brilliant. I left some cards and I hope to be working there again soon. Signing off. Chris @ Jack Plug Entertainment.
As last year, I DJ'ed for the Ripley Castle Cyclocross race held on New Year's Day. It's a fantastic event held in the grounds and around the castle at Ripley near Harrogate. Organised by Harrogate Nova Cycle club members and Steve Smales. The event has many big names in the sport attending, but also is great for all abilities offering races for everyone from small children right up to the elite men and women. The adult Go-Cross ride was especially good, as it gave new riders a chance to delve into the sport. I took some footage of the whole day on a go-pro camera and I have the YouTube links below:

DJing an event like this is great, as I can play all the music I love and I know the riders love it too, going past fists pumping. Next year we intend to be in a more prominent position
I really enjoyed this event, at first I was worried the kids would be crazy and yes at times they were, but having fun. I do DJing for fun and because I love music not like some DJ's that do it for the money and charge extortionate prices . Don't get me wrong I charge the going rate, but I see this as funding the equipment insurance and extending the music library too. When the client sent this through after their 13 years olds party it made my day!!

"Jack Plug Entertainment was recommended to us by word of mouth. We were looking for a DJ for my daughter’s 13th birthday party - a disco for 30+ kids. A possibly daunting prospect for any parents!Chris asked us for a play list beforehand which was great as my daughter knew exactly what songs she wanted playing on the night.This was key, as all the kids knew the songs and the music was the right choice for their age group and taste.Frankly we were amazed how much the kids danced. "The DJ was very cool and laid-back!” our daughter said afterwards.And we as parents could retreat diplomatically to the kitchen and enjoy a glass or two of wine whilst the kids enjoyed themselves.Later on that night my daughter got instant comments on Snapchat like “best party ever!” We cannot recommend Chris and Jack Plug Entertainment highly enough. He is someone who knows how to organise totally the music and entertainment side - so you can actually relax and enjoy others enjoying themselves.And to sum up - a really great, memorable and fun night was had by all!"
