For more than a decade Anthony has been a full-time DJ across the UK & Internationally. He has worked in other sectors of the music industry and has been heavily involved with original artists and cover bands at events, weddings, parties and club gigs since 2001. Anthony has a deep love and passion for music and prides himself and his DJing on his diverse, genre-spanning 100,000+ track collection. Always keeping up to date with current trends and releases to remixes, yet still diggin’ for re-issues, remasters and undiscovered gems which has become pivotal in his longevity and continuing growth as a DJ.
On the night Anthony mixes the set with logic flowing and weaving various styles and genres together to connect with diverse audiences keeping the energy going and the crowd dancing! Seasoned in wedding and private events, he can seamlessly move from casual chilled cocktail party into dance party madness. Anthony has worked alongside many bands, warming up the evening, filling in between sets or to taking the party up a notch into the early hours. He has also had the enjoyment of being joined by onstage by saxophone players like Dan Goode, Dax On Sax to percussionists and smooth soul vocalists during his requested Club Classics & House sets..
Whether rocking a dance-floor, making mixes and edits in his studio Anthony is constantly looking to pushing the boundaries of his own music taste & styles and adding new material when required to keep his DJ sets surprising and fresh. Anthony doesn’t take himself or what he does too seriously, just the way in which he does it.

Just a quick thank you for a fantastic party at our wedding a few weeks ago. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Vikki still can't believe she was on her feet literally all evening, shoes included, the majority of which was spent dancing to a great selection of music and some technically excellent and dynamic mixing. I also can't believe we were dancing almost non stop until 1am, after a very long day. You absolutely nailed it in every respect. We have had numerous comments from a wide variety of guests complimenting the music selection and performance, also your stamina to keep going for a good 6 hours or more. It was very much appreciated. A band simply wouldn't have delivered such a seamless performance and value for money. All the best!
Antony Parella was an amazing DJ at our wedding. He arrived, set up like a Ninja and played a rather obscure first dance for us without any questions! He knew what to play and was so polite and lovely. I cannot recommend him highly enough. It's hard work and Anthony makes it look so easy - Thanks again!!
‘We would highly recommend Anthony Parella for any function as he is superb! Punctual, professional and a lovely bloke.. He played such a variety of music to suit all guests at our wedding and everyone loved it. All our guests commented on how great the set up was and even those who don’t normally dance were up on the dance floor. He played all the tracks we asked for and even delivered with our ‘old skool dance’ hour and shout outs at the end of the night. Never thought I could bounce around in a wedding dress for that long but I did as the music was fab! - Thank you so much.’
Mr & Mrs Henderson
‘Anthony was a massive hit. He was professional and cool, which is rare for a wedding DJ. He listened to our music requests and was completely on a level with the non-cheesy style we requested. All tracks were mixed / beat-matched / faded to make a seamless set and the dance floor was full just about all night long. We would highly recommend him.’
‘We would wholeheartedly recommend Anthony Parella. We booked him for our wedding at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and he was a true professional in every way. We asked him to play a mix of British and Persian music to cater to our guests which he did wonderfully. Our guests were dancing the whole night long. He also liaised with our Persian dancer on the day which meant we could enjoy the evening without having to get involved. If you're thinking of booking Anthony, go ahead - you won't be disappointed!’
