It’s a Wind Up!, the Vintage 78 DJ, entertains at weddings using 78rpm shellac records. This talented husband & wife duo, regularly hired by celebrities, also supply traditional vintage lawn games.
We tour the country playing from our hoard of over 20,000 shellac discs whilst adding an extra twist with our unique collection of vintage and traditional fete and parlour games.
Vintage 78 Gramophone DJ**
1930′s portable gramophones are used play and spin original shellac recordings. The music ranges from the first electric recordings of the 1920s through to the 1950s
We can play for any part of your wedding day including your drinks reception and wedding breakfast and often play for the whole afternoon changing the style of music as the day goes along. We also have provided the music for the wedding ceremony playing the bride in, providing incidental music for signing and something uplifting for the happy couple’s exit. We love to play in the evenings and have a really lively set just for this which is based on our “festival” set and includes jazz swing, real R n B and of course, Rock n Roll.
Our collection of 78rpm records is vast and is a complete history of the best in 20th century music; 20s and 30s jazz era, Be-Bop, the big band sound of the 1940s, skiffle, Rat Pack crooners, Rock n’ Roll, female vocalists and a huge stash of the Blues. We pride ourselves on getting the music right and our records are in great condition ensuring that the sound quality from our superbly maintained gramophones is the highest “low-fi” you will hear.
Vintage and Traditional Lawn Games
We have a huge collection of vintage games to entertain your guests during the afternoon and evening. Our fete games are perfect for any lawn or outside area and our traditional pub and parlour games are a great addition to any inside space. Our games are not corporate looking and give a more traditional “fete” feel. They are a huge hit with adults as well as children and offer a wonderful opportunity to play such games in a fun and relaxed setting. We also supply deckchairs, picnic blankets and other props and work with you with to plan and style your day.
