so If you are having a party, 21st, Wedding, Or a school/College Function. He is one Dj you will want to have at your next Function. He is a great asset to Lazersounz.
BACKGROUND ON LAZERSOUNZ: As my family were very musically orientated I became interested in music at a very early age. I played with my father’s record collection all the time and made up my own radio shows and recordings. Through my schooling years I took part in a lot of school productions and plays. When I was 15 years old, I joined the local Rock’n’Roll Club. I enjoyed the music & the dances that were held every weekend. This also involved teaching and choreographing for schools and the local Preforming Arts Centre. I would travel all over the North Island to attend them, meeting many of the friends. This is where I had my first introduction to DJ work.
The DJ’s that played at the Rock’n’Roll dances were professional DJ’s & it wasn’t long before I was hanging around with them to learn all there is to know about this trade. I started working for Bruce Nichol, Roadshow Productions & Brent Perry, Radio broadcaster, both of which are big names in the industry organising national radio & international concerts throughout
DJ CAREER: In 1986 I started my own business, doing discos in the Horowhenua area where I reside. I was doing parties for friends & family. Word of mouth spread & I found my part time job doing discos was becoming a full time job. Within 3-4 years I was working full time, doing discos for weddings, 21st’s, School Balls & fundraisers, corporate functions, working in pubs & clubs, birthday parties as well as Christmas & New Year Functions. I soon realised that my part time hobby, had become a business. “Lazersounz” was born.
Brent & Bruce taught me about DJ work as well as people skill, working in the entertainment industry doing roadwork for concerts & PA set ups for corporate events. They also taught me about the types of equipment used & how important it is to have the right set up for each & every event.
They thought I was a natural & had me working all types of functions from Weddings to corporate events, 21st’s to major sporting occasions. I worked at The Michael Fowler Centre, & Westpac Trust Harbour Cruises as well as pubs & clubs. So there was a variety of work that they trusted me to do, to be able to service the client’s requirements.
It was then that I met Terry Watt. He was a professional DJ working full time at 2XX & 95FM radio stations. We became good friends, he taught me more about the DJ industry, as he had worked professionally in London & then back here in New Zealand. He started to work with me, on a part time basis as well as working for Bruce at Roadshow Productions. I got more involved with my DJ work & also community work with my involvement with Terry & the radio stations.
SERVICES: This is how it all started & as a hobby that has grown into a successful business covering not only just local events, we now cover events all over New Zealand. Lazersounz disco has now been in business for 25 years. It has grown from; a one-man band to now employing staff. I have fully trained professional DJ’s, working for Lazersounz doing all manners of jobs from DJ work to setting up PA & Sound systems for a number of different occasions, All over New Zealand.
