Will Soflty was the DJ at our wedding party hosted in the Chocolate Factory, Kings Inns Street Dublin. Will was in tune with our musical taste from the moment we contacted him, he was open to our selection and improved it with every contact we had with him.
The very minute our party started the dance floor filled and never emptied for the duration of our party. Will caught the mood of our guests and delighted them with the music he played. To quote “every time I wanted to sit another song would start and I couldn’t leave the dance floor all night”. Our party is still spoken about as being the best party with the best dance music by all our guests.
For us Will was much more than a DJ he filled our night with good cheer, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. In essence he made our night and connected with us in such a way that we will never ever forget this special man in terms of what he gave of himself and of his musical talent that night.
Will is a talented DJ and he is a kind, sensitive and generous human being, we are so lucky to have met him.
