Spotlight Entertainment

Hi I am Steve from Spotlight Entertainments NZ.

I started my career as a DJ back in 1989, taking over a party that was not going well. From that point on I bought myself some turntables, lights and speakers and started playing at different venues.

In the mid-nineties I joined a successful entertainment agency in London and worked my way to the top and was the agencies number one DJ.

Whilst with that agency, I worked at many top venues in London and surrounding areas. The functions that I covered included birthdays, engagements, wedding parties and corporate black tie dinner/dances.

I have spent the past five years upgrading my equipment to a very high standard. This enables me to play at all types of venues, regardless of size.

I have a wide range of lighting to capture all types of moods. These range from lasers to uplighters, scanners to flame machines.

I carry in excess of 20,000 tracks spanning seven decades and so I can cater for a wide variety of tastes. You are welcome to submit a request list prior to your function and I am happy to take requests on the evening – you have total control over the music.

I also offer a Free Photo CD Service, where I take photos, which are displayed on a small screen, and then you get a CD containing them so you have a permanent record of the evening. Or Free Up-lighting where, in addition to the usual high-standard light show, I will provide uplighters to illuminate the walls of the room that the disco is taking place in, creating a lovely ambiance.

Thanks we had an amazing day everything went so smoothly. Thanks for doing our wedding with short notice, you were great loved every minute of it and everyone enjoyed themselves. Would definately reccommend you to others in the future.

Thank you so much Eric for being the DJ at our Wedding! You were so fantastic to work with. You made us feel completely at ease with how organized you were and this let us relax and enjoy the day. We were so glad that we chose you as our DJ for our special day and we would totally recommend you to others!! Thanks again! Karen.

Hi Eric, Thank-you so much for being the DJ at our wedding. Our guests loved the music and had such a great time. Your selection of music really fitted the crowd, getting even my dad on the dance floor. I’ve never seen him dance, so that’s a real accomplishment. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to thank-you on the night, we really appreciated the music which really made the night. Thanks again Craig and Kelly Baker

Hired Eric for the first time last night at our Xmas function – excellent. Adjusted music to suit the crowd – in the end other people not with our party asked to join in because they liked the music he played so much. Definitely hire him again! John McKenzie – Archibalds

We recently used DJ Eric for our wedding and found him excellent. He was friendly and polite and went out of his way to accommodate us, I do not hesitate in recommending him to all.

So what are you waiting for Talk to John about how Eric can help your function to be the best it can be

About DJ Kere

I started my career working for Christchurch Discos under my mentor DJ Joe. I started off working with him at The Bush Bar. I stayed with Christchurch Discos for a couple of years working at various bars.

From there I worked for Canterbury Entertainment for about 3 years. Our main events were private functions, Weddings, Birthdays etc. While I was with them, I became their number 1 DJ, thanks to Paul and Sam my private functions expertise grew.

With my main job commitments growing, I retired for a short time but still did the odd request job for Canterbury Entertainment. When I changed my job I went back into Mobile DJing. I  soon started working for Night Shift Discos, subcontracted by Playtime Promotions, working in bars, private functions and schools throughout Canterbury, where I have been working for the past 8 years.

I am very excited to be taking what I have learnt over the past 15 years and starting my own DJ Business.


The right music for the right party can do wonders for a great night out.  I carry what is known as a “basic music list”.  All the greats from Abba to Black Eye Peas, Andy Kim to Pearl Jam in fact you’d be surprised at what I have.

From keeping your old folks to the young ones happy, isn’t an easy task especially when music is involved. So when choosing music to play on the night I use a rotation system to keep everyone happy. It’s a proven system that works. playing songs that everyone knows and can either sing along or dance to, then to mix up throw in the rare song so others in your party can enjoy as well.  This way everyone gets what they want.

More importantly I play within the rules of the night from the bookings. What that means is if you want a certain type of music to be played or don’t want to be played I will respect that.

If you have a song(s) or artist(s) in mind that you want to hear then let us know and I’ll do the best I can to make sure your requests are met.

DJ Kery, DJ Kerri, DJ Kerry, DJ Kere – you name him he is perfect for your next function!
