If you're wanting somebody to D.J. at a personal function then I could be your man. Distance is no problem.

The Tunes I play - ALL ON VINYL - concentrate on 1950's and 1960's stuff. If you require a programme of a certain style or era then this could be arranged as I have boxes of tunes that cover the following:

1950's Jump Jive and R&B
1950's Doo Wop and Rock'N'Roll
American Blues and R&B
1960's UK R&B and Mod Tunes
1960's STAX - Atlantic - Soul
1950's & 1960's UK and US General "Pop"

A more commercial selection of tunes is often required at private gigs - such as shown below

Quotes and comments from happy customers who recently booked me for private gigs


Blues and Bling Party
for Pat Driver of Colne, Summer 2008

"Chris Powers, as a friend is amazing - as a D.J. he's awesome.  Chris is unique in his field and great fun complemented by his many different outfits.  He DeeJayed at my birthday party and made the night very special for me, my friends and my family who all just danced the night away through his patter and fab music.  It is my pleasure to know Chris both personally and in his music life - long may he reign"
Pat Driver, September 2008

"A Blast From The 1960's" event in conjunction with the charity "National Concern for Healthcare Infections"
for Sheila Mitchell of Rochdale

"During late summer 2008 I arranged a fund raising event for the group for which I'm a trustee - the National Concern for Healthcare Infections (NHCI).  I engaged the services of a local group, EXIT, and D.J. Chris Powers.  Chris was recommended by a friend and as soon as I met him I knew he was going to inject a lot of energy and humour into the proceedings.  He is extremely easy going and did his job very professionally making the evening move along perfectly so that everything we wanted to include - a raffle and a speech - were achieved in an extremely enjoyable fashion.  His choice of music was good (we had requested music from the 1960's as most of the audience were celebrating their 60th birthday this year or next).  He took requests and interacted well with us all.  He took time to understand what I told him about the group (NCHI) and made sufficient references to it throughout the night.  Overall he did a superb job and was willing to continue until everyone had had enough and had headed home.

Old Rydalions Reunion - "We're All Go This Year"
at the Imperial Hotel, Llandudno, 25th April 2009

"The musical entertainment that Chris provided together with his incomparable outfit was excellent. 

The soul and ‘sixties’ records were spot on and if we have another ‘do’ when we reach ‘official’ retirement age, more music will be required and hope that Chris will still be available".
Phil Arrowsmith, May 2009
 

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN 
60th Birthday Party, 14th August 2009

A few years ago I attended a 60th Birthday Party and I saw a DJ plying his trade ( I hadn't seen him before ) and he was FANTASTIC ! I remarked at that time that he would be perfect for our Golf Club socials ( Crompton and Royton Golf Club ) and I took his card . That man was Chris Powers . I since that day have booked Chris on many occasions for prestigious events such as Captains Night, New Years Eve etc. In 2004 I was President and when I was putting together my Night of all Nights there was only one person (and his music) ho I could depend on to make it a special occasion. This year I held my 60th Birthday Party at the Club and guess who it had to be to complete this wonderful night for me and my family and friends? You got it Chris Powers! His presentation is 1st class, Stylish Confident but Mellow when the occasion requires it. The sound of vinyl that takes you back to that golden era when we were young and impressionable. Chris's choice of musical styles is from a well chosen list of classics from the 50's 60's 70's including Soul and Motown ( my favourite era ). The sounds of Chris Powers are unique and exceptional as he tailors your requirements to give you the very best that you desire ensuring your enjoy the occasion to the full. Chris's passion for his music is self evident and his attention to detail ( for you and your evening ) makes him the Top Class performer you can totally depend on. Do you think I would have him back again soon? I think you have got it in one! Respect to the man and the music that is CHRIS POWERS.
