Thanks so much to DJ James and the G&M Team for providing a perfect selection of music and games for or Beach Party School Disco. DJ James was fun, energetic and interactive with our disco dancers and he worked really closely with the organisers to keep the disco flowing to schedule.#DJJamesMSts.

The kids loved him, his music choices and especially the 'dance-off' competitions. We reckon this is our best school disco EVER! We will definitely be looking to re-book DJ James for next year.#DJJamesMSts. Peter & Paul's Catholic Primary School, Bulimba

James was absolutely amazing. The dance floor was buzzing the whole night, the transitions were great, he was very personable and took on song request like a champ. Lighting set up was sensational.
