Hi there, I am Jaco, the owner, and DJ of Dukes Mobile Disco. Let me give you a brief history of Dukes.
A few years ago, 29 November 1997 to be exact, a friend and I started off by playing music at another friend’s wedding as a favor. It quickly became our hobby, but unfortunately, my partner had to call it a day and I decided to take Dukes Mobile Disco ahead. Well, the hobby became a job and now it is my passion! Dukes Mobile Disco has over the years specialized in wedding receptions and garden ceremonies, all birthday parties, year-end functions and corporate functions. I strive to cover a vast part of the Western Cape and have played in various towns such as Saldanha on the West Coast, more to the north in Citrusdal, Calvinia, and the Southern Coast in Hermanus, Gansbaai and in many of the well-known venues in our Fairest Cape.
My client is always my biggest priority and to ensure a satisfied client, his or her needs take preference at all times. I insist on a meeting prior to the function in order to finalize details e.g. choice of music, the use of lighting and other preferences of my client.
In order to ensure an organized atmosphere, Dukes co-ordinate with the Master of Ceremonies throughout the function. At weddings, it is also important for me to liaise with other service providers such as the photographer, the videographer, and the caterer to ensure that the function is as smooth running as possible.
I have an extensive playlist with a wide selection of music genres that everyone at any function can enjoy. During the function, the type of music varies constantly to avoid a stagnant atmosphere. Therefore you might hear anything from good Golden Oldies to Boeremusiek! Here are some of the genres that I cover in my selection.
- Light Classical (Background), Romantic,
- Langarm, Boeremusiek, Afrikaans,
- Country Favorites, Reggae,
- 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s,
- Bob & Jive, Rock & Roll, Pop Music,
- Old School, 12” Mixes of various favorites,
- House, Progressive House, Club Music,
- Metal, Punk Rock,
- Hard Rock, New Age Rock.
