“Would definitely book Anthony again, he understood his audience and kept the dance floor full all evening. He didn’t make it all about him as some DJ’s can and had the music volume just right. Very friendly and helpful.”

Just WOW!- What an incredible DJ!

5 stars - Anthony Parella are Highly Recommended booked Anthony Parella for their Wedding in Warwickshire December 2019

“I can’t thank Anthony enough for making our wedding into such an amazing party. He played pretty much every single song we requested and mixed each one wonderfully. There wasn’t a time that our dance floor wasn’t full and our guests have been messaging us ever since saying it was the best music they have ever heard at a wedding. It has been described as the party of the year! He also went above and beyond to make our first dance perfect, with my best friend singing it live- he made her feel super comfortable which is fab. Thanks again- I’ll be recommending to everyone!!!”

Top man! Anthony was fantastic, everyone loved him and the music.

5 stars - Anthony Parella are Highly Recommended booked Anthony Parella for their Wedding in London November 2019

“Anthony was excellent! He read the room brilliantly and played tunes that got everyone on the dance floor. Everyone was saying how great the DJ was after the wedding. Anthony was really friendly and great to chat to. Very thoughtful - we don't like a huge amount of attention, Anthony checked how long we want on the floor for our first dance before asking others to join - he thinks of everything! We cannot recommend Anthony enough.”

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.

Your Event & Your Music
Anthony is a ‘non-cheesy’ DJ, understanding his audiences and their tastes. He has a vast knowledge and a passion for all genres of music and is amazing at reading of all types of crowds. He loves playing music to get the crowd excited - from Soul, Funk, Top 40, RnB, Rock, Indie, 80s/90s, Disco, Electronica, Reggae and everything in between. However he will contact you prior to your event and go through your specific musical wishes for the event however eclectic and however you want the night to run. He’ll play a full DJ set as required without breaks. If necessary Anthony can also provide background music beforehand.

From bespoke first dances to walk-on music at awards ceremonies, let Anthony know in his pre-event check and he’ll have it ready.

He prides himself on customer satisfaction and flexibility working around any changes however big or small and however last-minute to make your day run as smoothly as possible! 

Anthony dresses for the occasion whether it's a wedding, a black-tie corporate event or a more casual party, just specify your requirements to him. Requiring a space of 3m x 3m is preferable but will accommodate whatever space is available. He is very adaptable to a range of room types and will always adjust volume levels to suit your needs. Hiring a brand new VW Transporter van for his gigs ensures reliability, punctuality and a completely professional service in what he does giving every customer the peace of mind whether it be a wedding, party or corporate event.

Customer Satisfaction
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! 

James Hart

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!!

Amber Hart-Moir

‘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.’

James Sear

‘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!’
