Forest Flame Disco Southampton

I’m Dave Parry and I love working with people of all ages from the youngest toddlers to the oldest of people; I’ve been doing it for 35 years. I’ve worked with toddlers to teens, as well as working with young adults, parents, grand-parents, and great grandparents.

For 20 years I’ve been using music and sound systems in my full-time work, and for the past ten I’ve been using lighting and running discos. I’d love to be able to provide sound and lighting for YOUR DISCO or event, whatever type it may be. I will do my best to make it a success.

If I’m providing your disco, I’m happy to provide your choice of music, though as FOREST FLAME is a family disco, we try not to play anything offensive by content or nature.

I look forward to answering your phone call.

DJ Dave Parry


Just a note on behalf of Sarah and myself to thank you for providing the party atmosphere appropriate for our celebrations on Saturday. People genuinely seem to have enjoyed the opportunity to dance or watch others get back into the rhythm of their 60s selves!
Thank you and best wishes Rosemary and Sarah


This was the second New Years Eve Dave did for us and as before it went seamless. Already booked again for NY 2017
Sue Grundy, Manager The New Forest, Ashurst


We rented 2 active stage monitors and two stereo DI boxes (last minute) including drop off and collection. The equipment was great and was a great help during the night and without it, the gig wouldn't have gone as well as it did. The communication was great and they were more than willing to drop off the equipment and pick it up after the show. I would advise this company to anyone who needs to hire live sound equipment and I will definitely use them again in the future. I would rate them 10 out of 10 without a moments hesitation!'

We have used Forest Flame for our last two youth group Christmas balls. On both occasions they were great! Really easy to work with, flexible and made my life so much easier as I could forget about the music and the lights and concentrate on everything else!
Ray King Youth worker Testwood Baptist Church

We thought your services professional. Very approachable and played what we requested. Thank you for making our party a success.

We recently hired Dave Parry and his Forest Flame disco for our daughter’s 18th birthday party.  From the start he was friendly, professional and flexible. He even reviewed the playlist supplied by our daughter and advised us there were some "parental advisory" lyrics in some of the chosen tracks.  On the evening he arrived on time, set up quietly without fuss and the sound and lighting were good quality and set up perfectly for the venue.  He had to contend with some "dance shy" teenagers but by using his knowledge and careful selection of tracks managed to get them all on the floor - much to my surprise they were some old school disco tracks that still go down well. We were delighted with Dave's service and would definitely recommend Forest Flame Disco.

I thought it was perfect, from Dave coming to visit us to explain everything through to the final song. Everything we wanted we got, I asked for 40 not just 30 songs and all were played, also great fun songs were played to get everyone not matter what age up on the dance floor so all could enjoy and I know that those who couldn’t join in enjoyed watching.  Dave is a lovely friendly fun man who took requests and kept the music flowing throughout.  The lighting was amazing and helped create a wonderful relaxed full of fun atmosphere.  Great fun!

Brilliant customer service. You couldn’t do more to make us happy. Will happily come back to you for future events, when we have them. Our guests really enjoyed the night. Great atmosphere! We were so happy with the music choices. You were more than happy to put on requests; so in our situation there is nothing we can say that would have improved the night. You were brill!
Ushi and Paul (Wedding)


All the music throughout the evening was geared to what WE wanted and not what the DJ wanted to play. Communication prior to and throughout the evening was excellent. The music was a big part of what made the evening such a success. It was made clear at the beginning of the evening that if we thought the music was too loud/quiet that we only had to say and it would be adjusted, and the lighting was excellent! – People were actually commenting about it to us on the night.
Geraldine Carrett (Silver Wedding Anniversary)


Probably the best light show I have seen for ages... a bit pricey compared to others I have used but the standard of the event more than compensated.... Totally professional event and great light show; Immy (daughter’s birthday party) loved it. A great disco, well worth the additional cost over the run of the mill stuff you usually get. Loved the care taken to ensure only ‘appropriate’ music was played.
Richard Eyles


Very friendly and easy to work with. You did a brilliant job. This was the 2nd time used; will use you again.
Lisa from Hamble Community Events


David and his teenage son Nathan are the perfect combo for young people's parties. Whist ensuring that he plays nothing with nasty lyrics, Dave took care to find out my daughter's preferences before her party. He bought a couple of her favourites specially, but with some 5,000 songs on his playlist there was no problem keeping her and her friends happy. We requested the basic light show including blacklight which was fine for our small hall and excellent value compared to the other DJs we looked at. For bigger events Dave can scale up to the full works including gazebo lighting and floodlights for outdoors, and a beefier sound system. Friendly, helpful and reliable – I can’t recommend this crew highly enough. Awesome.

David ran a 50th birthday bash for us which he conducted fantastically – very personal and efficiently run. Would highly recommend his service to anyone.

I would definitely recommend Forest Flame. Dave was very friendly, helpful and went out of his way to make our (Wedding) evening special.
Carrie Lowe


Choice of music suitable for age of children. All inappropriate material filtered out. Always polite, friendly and very reliable.
Lucy Jones


Very polite, helpful and provided exactly what I wanted.
Brin Singh


We were very impressed by the attitude and friendly approach that Dave gave throughout the day. He also contacted us appropriately before, and we were at ease throughout the day. Dave was very good and also played excellent music; couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.
Leanne Handley

We were thrilled with the lighting we had for our daughter's wedding reception, it created a great atmosphere.  We really appreciated the attention to detail and consideration that Dave & Nathan showed in the planning as well as the actual event.  We would highly recommend them! 
Janice Tuck (Wedding Reception)


Dave and Nathan did the lights at our youth christmas party and they were great. He had a really good variety to offer, was very friendly and the lighting helped make our christmas celebrations great fun'.
Andy Morgan Youth worker (Youth Christmas Party)


Thanks Dave, Forest Flame, for the level of service you provided for the Men’s Worship Event held last Monday.  The blend of lighting added greatly to the success of the evening – thanks for all you did to help.
FGBMFI (Mens Worship Event)


Just wanted to say we had a great time at the Christmas Celebration evening, all went well with the lighting you provided.  The spot was a big hit as it followed the individual singers and dancers. Thanks for a quick set up and help in providing the mood we wanted for the evening. The variety of lighting changes brought a depth and quality to the individual performances. It was a pleasure to work with you – a winning combination by anyone’s standard – we look forward to working with you again.

Forest Flame provided the lights for our ladies fashion show. The colour mix and effects made the show, and showed off the creations to their best. A mixture of excitement and colour! These guys (Dave and Nathan) are easy to work with, they quickly understood what was required and how best to complement the show.

Forest Flame provided the lighting for our carol services over the Christmas period which were attended by several hundred people. The nativity service was appropriately lit. A big success with the parents. The evening Carols service by candle-light was an entirely different feel again. Warm, sensitive, smooth, perfectly complementing the traditional nature of the event. This clearly demonstrated their versatility and sensitivity.
