"Extremely Accommodating"

I hired Empire Events for my 21st Birthday party. They were easily approachable and extremely accommodating. When it came to the music side of things I had 100% faith in what they would produce on the night which saved me the job of making a playlist etc. They had the place on wheels, that good that my friends booked them for their 21st. After having them do my 21st I can guarantee that I will be returning for their expertise in the industry for any events they’d be required for. If you need a DJ be certain to get onto them they won’t be beating!!!

Paul Maguire

"Very Professional"
