About Double Impact

Double Impact Events

DJ Services & Event Facilities
Double Impact Entertainment was formed in 1997 by Danny Cobain, or “Disco Danny” as he was then and has been known. Today it’s a team of multi-talented and diverse DJ’s, MC’s and entertainers - which is a huge leap from the 1 speaker, 1 light, and 1 CD case; one man band outfit.

Of course, to start up back then was a hugely different affair to today. Though the one speaker was a limiting system, the use of CD’s and physical mix boards meant Danny had to know and study the music he carried intimately. Every gig meant preparing the music in advance so that he was ready to switch between tracks however the crowd responded to the current one. A stark contrast to the bedroom spinners of today who start out with a rigidly overpriced Spotify playlist DJ session.

Growth into the business that operates in 2016 was a gradual process, strongly lead by customer confidence and demand. 19 years on 90% of clients come from previous customers’ recommendations and those attending other events.

Over the years, the business has evolved from simple DJ services. As one might imagine, to work in events means multiple occasions working alongside the same caterers, entertainment providers, florists etc.. This experience paid off many times with clients asking us for recommendations and occasionally, specifically who to avoid. Through this process we began working with those companies we liked - and you can see some of those services (such as event dressing) showcased on our website. Businesses we’ve worked with and know provide a good service.

Other times we’ve seen areas lacking. Either bad service or just simply an unserviced area, which leads to our expansion from music to overall entertainment. We boast added facilities like photobooths and rodeo bulls on the website. Our bouncy castles not only get hired for private events but are booked constantly throughout the season by pubs and restaurants.

This expansion, along with the reviews from our clients and solid work history, should tell you one thing clearly: We love what we do! This business thrives because all involved are lucky enough to enjoy their work - and that shows in the service we provide, and the point of pride we take in the enjoyment of our audience.


But if we were to pick 1 single reason for Double Impact Entertainment to be hired, it wouldn’t be the vast experience, trusted reputation or broad capabilities - though all are valid reasons. No - it would be our ability to read a room. All our DJ’s are chosen because of it - the Midas touch in music is the gift to turn a playlist on its head and switch the direction of the next track based on the reaction of the crowd. It's about ensuring the audience are enthralled by the evening - not waiting for something better.
