DJ Nick and owner of TRAX (Nick Davies)

I started TRAX Disco Roadshow to give clients the right choice of options at a great price, and we may not be the cheapest or the most expensive. Still, I believe that we offer better value for money than anyone else.

TRAX Disco Packages are affordable to most people without compromising the quality.
Some people are happy with a standard light show. Others may want a more significant, more impressive performance using the latest LED Laser lighting effects.

We provide only experienced DJ's that know how to make your event unique and memorable. The DJ industry attracts many part-time operators who work for a beer or something to do at the weekend. Unfortunately, many are inexperienced and use out of date unreliable I have over 30 yrs experience as a DJ including Mobile Roadshows, Nightclub Residencies and guest appearances, I have also done agency work on the London Pub circuit and created my own "Megamixes" for Local Radio and The Disco Mix Club which provides pre-made mixes for DJ's to use at their gigs. I have played to many different crowds during my career and can cater for just about all musical tastes.

1977 - I started a mobile disco with my good friend Johnny Kolano after seeing "Saturday Night Fever". We played at many Weddings, Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, Street Parties, Welcome Home Parties, House Parties, Company Parties (You name it, we did it!). 1978 - 1980 - Still doing Mobile and secured residency at Wylyotts Manor Pub & Restaurant in Potters Bar, Herts and played to packed audiences every Sunday Night. My old pal Johnny Kolano left the business due to work commitments, and I started to do more and more club work.

1980 - 1986 - Resident DJ at The New Penny Nightclub in Watford on Thursday, Friday Sunday and at Caversham's in Reading working with live 60's & 70's Bands every Saturday (these included The Troggs, Vanity fair, Dave Berry & the Cruisers The Crystals, The Fantastics and Edison Lighthouse etc.) on occasion I would sometimes work another club in the group called "Bo Jangles" in Stevenage.

At the New Penny, the owner asked me to try and come up with something for Sunday night as the Funk nights were not drawing in the crowds. I suggested we try a Futurist/ Electronic 80's Night. This idea worked great and ended up with a packed club every Sunday.Regular customers to this gig were two guys and a pretty Platinum Blonde girl called Shirley. The two guys were George Michael and Andrew Ridgley, who asked me to play their demo tape. I said I would, but only if I thought it was good enough, it was called Wham Rap, and I was the first DJ to play it. The rest is history. George Andrew and Shirley went on to become Wham! And Still regularly attended my gig every Sunday and would bring their new tracks for me to play before they were released. Whenever I had time, I was still running the mobile disco. I was appointed Vice Chairman of The Thames Valley Disc Jockey Association. 1986 - Moved to Swindon in Wiltshire, and inspired by Michael Jackson's "Thriller", I created the first Halloween Megamix. I sent this to Tony Prince (Radio Luxemburg DJ and Founder of the Disco Mix Club).

About a month later, Tony called me and asked if I could re-create the mix at his recording studio and if I could incorporate a remix of Ghostbusters by his megamixer Sanny X. I travelled to his Studio in Bucks and met his team, including Mix Champion of the year "Chad Jackson" who later released a hit called "Hear The Drummer Get Wicked". I re-created the mix with some help from Chad on using some of the studio equipment, and the Megamix was released on their October 86 edition as "The Frightclub Megamix."
Due to the success of this mix, the Palace Nightclub in Blackpool commissioned me to produce a unique Megamix for their spectacular lighting rig. I visited The Palace and timed all the motorised lighting to coincide with the mix I created, including classical and rock tracks. They were delighted with the results.

Throughout the later '80s and '90s, I was Resident DJ for several years at Vadim's Nightclub in Swindon. During my time in Swindon, I became great friends with the late Sandy Martin and produced many Megamixes for his Discotrekin' program on GWR radio and often covered for him at his prestigious Brunel Rooms Residency. I have worked closely with many of the record companies promoting their new releases and artists throughout my DJ career.

I moved to Derby in 1994 and did some agency DJ work at The International Hotel and other venues in Derby and then in 2005 drifted into retirement from the DJ business. Then five years ago, my old Buddy Johnny Kolano asked me to come out of retirement and DJ at his Birthday Gig. It was a great night, and many people said I need to get back behind the mixing desk, hence the TRAX Disco Roadshow birth.
Trust my team of experienced DJ's with your special event and me, and We won't let you down.

About

DJ Richie K

DJ Richie K has worked for TRAX previously but had to leave to concentrate on a Wedding Venue residency and some Nightclub work.

We are pleased to welcome Richie back to TRAX as he has a wealth of experience. Richie has over 20 years of experience with his mobile show and various club appearances. He is a great guy and always impressed our clients with being so helpful and giving them a great night to remember. See some reviews from when he worked with us previously.

Richie K gave us a perfect evening of music! Everything we requested he found, and the volume was perfect for us. He kept it low at first as our guests arrived, and when requested after we had finished eating, he turned it up for those that wanted to dance. He even asked if we were happy with the lighting level in the room! Richie is a lovely guy, and we would have no hesitation in booking him again. He was professional, friendly, and even entertained my 5-month-old grandson with his light show. Thank you for a lovely evening"- Saturday, 15 October 2016 60th Birthday Party - Colette Dingley.
**********
"Hi. I want to say how pleased I was on Saturday night. DJ Richie was exactly what I was hoping for.
He was very professional and friendly. He read the party very well. When everyone was arriving, he realised we were chatting, so he kept the music at a reasonable volume level. He was very attentive regarding singing happy birthday and my thank you speech. I had given him a list of songs, and he played most of these along with others of his choice, which fitted in perfectly. Everyone said how good he was. I loved how he played a little bit of the next song within the one we were dancing to. I would recommend him to anyone! If I were going to have any other celebration, I wouldn't hesitate to book him again!
Thanks"
