My Story

Neil Johnson – Pro DJ & Founder of Sphere Entertainments

Sphere Entertainments DJ Neil Johnson

“Our DJ (Neil) was incredible for our wedding & and pulled out all the stops to make everything run smoothly. It was such a pleasure to have such an amazing person share our day with us & we will be forever grateful. Thank you so much” – Dan & Hayley

I’ve always had a love of music ever since I was little. I played my first ‘gig’ when I was just 17 years old. It was my sisters 16th birthday party at our mum & dads house. Everything got broken and smashed! But we all had such an awesome time I decided I wanted to get much more involved in DJing. So, armed with some old speakers, two hi-fi CD players and a backpack full of CDs I started out on my DJ career.

I played at many of my friends birthday parties and I was hooked! I had fallen in love with DJing. I wanted to learn everything I could about the art of DJing. This was the late 90s, a time before YouTube and its many thousands of videos showing you how it was all done. I learnt the hard way, spending many, many hours practicing in my bedroom. It eventually paid off, I taught myself how to mix music properly like nightclub DJs.

My dream was to set up my own ‘Mobile Disco’. So I purchased some better equipment and built the rest of it myself. I would set off every Monday to the record shops and buy all the new releases that came out that day. I took out and advert in the local yellow pages (remember those) and started selling my DJ services.

I DJ’d birthday parties, some anniversaries and I played a few local clubs. It wasn’t long before I’d booked my first wedding! I was so nervous! I’d never DJ’d a wedding before. I did some research and found out what I needed to know, things like playing a First Dance. (I didn’t even know what a First Dance was back then). It was the most nerve racking thing I had ever done! But I did it and it was a great night!

Between 2002 & 2006, rather than run my own business, I decided to work for a few other DJ companies as I had a day job. I learnt so much during this time but by the end of 2006 I chose to hang up my headphones and focus on the ‘day job’.

But within a few years I was missing my DJing. My love of music was still there and I really missed packing out a dance floor. Now I was older and (possibly) wiser I decided to start up my own company. I wanted to create a DJ company that would allow me to better myself and push my DJing skills to the next level. I wanted something I could be proud of. So in early 2010 Sphere Entertainments was born.

I wanted to leave behind a dated ‘Mobile Disco’ world. Many Mobile DJs I knew were just not taking the craft of DJing itself forward. Many of them still could not even mix music properly and were not willing to learn.

I did not want this image of an old style Mobile Disco for myself or for Sphere Entertainments. I wanted to be a modern & stylish DJ, and push myself to be the best I could possibly be.

I went to school (yes there is such a thing as a DJ school) to brush up on old skills and learn new ones. I’m still learning new skills today and I intend to continue learning my art as long as I still love music and DJing.

Today I am a full time professional career DJ (yes there is such a thing as a full time DJ!!). I’m a member of 2 of the UKs largest DJ associations, The National Association of DJs (NADJ) & The South East DJ Association (SEDA). I have served on the committee of NADJ and give talks and lessons to other DJs on how to improve their DJ skills.

One of my proudest moments on this DJ journey of mine came in 2017. I was asked by the founder of the worlds largest DJ school if I would be an Ambassador for the school. I would be involved with the training of a new generation of up and coming DJs across the globe. I’ve realised that one of my passions is helping others to improve themselves, so I jumped at the chance. Here I had an opportunity to use my knowledge to help people who want to learn all about the Wedding DJ & Event DJ world. I’ve loved every minute of it and it’s also teaching me so much more than I ever thought I could know.

So more than 25 years after playing my first ‘gig’ off my parents kitchen table, I can say I have the best career in the world. I love my job! I love working with couples planning their wedding, helping them come up with ideas and putting them at ease. I love working with people planning all sorts of parties whether personal or corporate.

But most of all I love packing out the dance floor. Seeing people have fun and enjoying themselves, knowing I’ve helped take them to that place is hugely rewarding for me. I want to give you the best experience I possibly can.

Thank you for reading my story.
