  1. We hired Mark for our wedding this September and I can honestly say he was amazing!! He totally made the evening getting to know everyone and structuring the evening around the songs of our lives. So many people commented on how good he was. In a nutshell if you need a wedding dj and compere to make a memorable day even more memorable then Mark is the man. Looking to book him for the Christening next!!

  2. We were the band joining forces with Mark to entertain everyone at Gemma and Oli’s wedding last Saturday. We have been playing at events for over 10 years and worked with many different DJs and I can honestly say Mark is the best we’ve ever come across! His level of professionalism and pure passion for making sure everyone there is having a good time was great to see. If you’re considering booking Mark, do it, I promise you wont be disappointed and if you are still unsure just have a chat with him and you’ll quickly realise you’re in good hands!

  3. Hi Mark. What a truly wonderful afternoon we have all had … residents … families … and staff. We didnt expect a party, but we had one!! So many happy faces were witnessed and dancers we never knew had it in them. You stirred up so many wonderful memories for our residents, taking them back to their happy years. Thank you so much. You are a genuine, lovely guy who can certainly sing and entertain xxx

  4. We first saw Mark at my Brother’s wedding last year and absolutely loved how personal he made their evening and how he had every single person on the dance floor no matter what age. After this I have attended another 2 weddings where Mark has been the DJ and since then mine.

    Mark takes so much time getting to know both Mr and Mrs to make sure he makes the evening perfect and with no surprise he succeeded!

    The dance floor was packed from start to finish with so many great compliments on the music and the vibe of the wedding.

    It was an absolute pleasure having him as part of our special day and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that has a wedding coming up. Don’t look any further #marktollissweloveyou !!

  5. Hi Mark. Thank you so much for making our wedding so amazing. I am so happy that the dance floor was packed all night and the atmosphere was incredible. I absolutely love all of the photos you have sent through, you have captured some cracking moments and the videos from guests with you singing and having fun with the guests have proper made us laugh. We have had so many guests tell us how brilliant you were, they all think you’re a top bloke !! xxx

  6. Without doubt THE best DJ! And everyone at our wedding agreed! Thank you Mark, you really made our wedding reception an event in itself. All our guests had such a laugh with you, it really was like having a mate DJ for us 🙂 All the personal touches/throwback songs meant so much to our family & friends, and thank you for helping out with the whole mic situation, absolute star! We have recommended you to everyone as they were all raving about how great the night was! Now we just need an excuse to book you again! Love Karla & James x

  7. Where do i start! Such a fantastic gentleman that worked hard from start and beyond the finish. Our wedding was amazing and Mark did a fantastic job going above and beyond for our Wedding reception and we cannot thank him enough for everything that he did for us. He took the time prior to our event researching and learning all about my partner & I and all our guests. Everything was personalised and tailor made for us which made it so special. Our guests were blown away by Mark’s work and we have had so many compliments on how great he was. We cannot recommend him enough! Fantastic work Mark thank you again. We hope to have you again at future events, Mr & Mrs Green xx

  8. WOW is one of the only words I can say about Mark and his services. As a guest at my Sister’s wedding I can honestly say I have never attended an event where the DJ has made it so special. The little bits of knowing the guests names and who there married to and their children’s names prior to the event was just above and beyond. You took time out to go and talk to guests, ask them what they wanted played and interacted with everyone. You sir went above and beyond to make my Sister’s day so special and for that I thank you. I highly recommend you not only to Brides-to-be but to anyone looking for a first class service

  9. Mark hosted our wedding reception last night and he completely made the evening. We had all of our guests asking us if he was our friend as he took the time to get to know us before the wedding and spent the evening mingling with our wedding guests. He really does have the personal touch and goes above and beyond to make the occasion perfect. Thank you, doesn’t really seem to justify just how grateful we are.

  10. Well where do we start!! Mark thank you so much for making our wedding evening reception such an amazing night! You really did make an amazing effort. You made everything so personal to us and our friends and families. We’ve had so many comments from everyone about how much they loved you!! 2nd time our family has hired you and we will defo pass your name on as a reccomendation. Once again thank you!! xx

  11. Thank you does not do justice to how grateful we are for the amazing night you allowed us to have when celebrating my brother’s wedding. Even before the event you built a relationship with the bride and groom in order to make it personal and mingled with guests to incorporate personal likes and dislikes, upcoming and recent events and to personalise the night. The banter you had with us all was incredible and your voice was stunning when singing, guests were unsure if it was live as it was so good. A one in a million man, thank you for the memories! x

  12. Just want to say a Massive Thank You to an awsome DJ. You went above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough. You made the night perfect and we didn’t stop smiling and laughing all night. You had us all up and you’re just an all round amazing man. Thank you for sharing our day with us, thank you so much Mark love from the lukers xxx

  13. Thank you Mark for making our wedding day so special. He started the night knowing just 2 or 3 people and finished knowing literally everyone in the room. He would welcome them on to the dance floor and play them a song that meant something to them. He was the perfect host, entertainer and DJ and made our night into something so very special! Thank you Mark, we will definitely be using you again!
    Jacob and Annalise xx

  14. Mark you are amazing. Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing party. You really are so entertaining. Everyone has told us how brilliant you were. All that homework getting to know us, your attention to detail and getting to know our family made our party a great success. Thank you again. Lots of Love – Katie, Elaine & Ian xxx

  15. We cannot recommend this lovely guy enough – such a consummate professional and not only a brilliant DJ, Singer & Entertainer but also a really warm, friendly, honest & decent person.
    Mark absolutely made our reception – he knew all the family by name, took time to find out about us and our background before the event and played all the songs that were special to us (even serenaded us with our first dance song!). Thanks Mark and we wish you continued success for the future!
    Becky and Andrew xx

  16. Thank you so much to Mark for making our wedding so amazing by providing the evening entertainment! Everybody loved you and the music and special extra touches you gave! So many of our guests are still commenting on how great he is! HIGHLY recommend!! Thank you so much!! X

  17. We just wanted to thank you so very much for doing such a great job at the wedding. We had the best time and you really made our day perfect, we can’t thank you enough.
    I don’t think I spoke to a single person there or since who didn’t mention what a good job you did and were amazed by your ability to memorize who was who! Absolutely brilliant! We will 100% be recommending you to anyone and everyone! Thanks again xx

  18. Yet again Mr. T never lets me down..
    Mark Tolliss is a walking legend. From the moment you meet him you feel like you have known him forever. Mark did an amazing job at our School Prom last night and has made so many young peoples dreams come true. From the first song starting to the last song of the night the dance floor was full … what more can u ask for 😍 Julie Orme

    Mark, you were perfect at our prom last night. You ensured that the staff, and more importantly, the kids had a great time. You kept the dance floor full all night and the kids enjoyed every second of their prom. You are amazing! Thank you for your hard work – Dan Clarke

    Mark, what a top bloke. Did our school prom for us. Personalised it for every pupil and was great. Many thanks x – Penny Shakespeare

    Big thank for doing our school prom for free. You were brilliant! Kids and staff had a great night x – Jill Lambert

    A huge thank you Mark for making our Forest Oak year 11 prom night a huge success it was the best yet! Thank you xx – Nicky Williams

  19. Well Mark what can we say, you were great at Joseph’s 18th. We chose you because we knew you would great as you also did my brothers wedding. Every one commented on how great you were. And Beth is also missing you. Thanks ever so much. We need to have more family parties i think so we get to see you. Best wishes. Joanne and Colin (Good boy for not playing Wake me up before you go go!!!) xx

  20. Wow – we had an absolutely amazing wedding night thanks to you being our DJ. We didnt give you too much to go on (sorry), but still you managed to make our night so personal to us, you got our guests up dancing immediately and we did not stop until the end! We laughed, we cried and some of us sang… it was just amazing. Everyone is still talking about you a month on 😁 Thank You!!! X

  21. Extraordinary man, extraordinary entertainer, extraordinary childhood memories…….. which is what memories are made of, and Mark certainly delivered that on our Wedding and Daughters 18th. We can’t praise you enough, it’s been 5 years since we married and our guests still talk about our entertainer…..nothing more to say! Wendie and Steve. XX

  22. Mark – We wanted to firstly thank you for one of the most memorable (if not the most memorable) nights of mine and Debs life. The level of detail you put into the night was exceptional and certainly didn’t go unnoticed. From the moment we booked you, sat down and discussed what we wanted to the final song on the night we couldn’t of been happier. You tend to think all DJ’s are the same, they play some songs and that’s it. You on the other hand made our night so personal to a degree of learning everyone’s names it made the whole evening just the icing on the cake. We had so many people come up to us and ask us where we found you from and how good you were, how you remembered everyone’s name and how you knew so much about all the guests it was so impressive. Not to mention the dance off you had with Dan even at the beginning of the night!!!

    Thank you again so much for such an amazing night, I could go on and on about all the little things you did for us but we would be here all day, just thank you for being amazing and thank you for ending our day on a massive high note! You were loved by everyone!

  23. We had Mark for our DJ / Host at Dodford Manor and it would be no exagerration to say the wedding was so much better for having Mark there. He was incredible, learning the names of our Bridesmaids Ushers and Family before the wedding, doing research on us and most importantly, playing an incredible playlist. If you need a DJ for any event, choose Mark, he will surpass all your expectations!

  24. Well what can I say ?
    Seriously best ever experience of a DJ, not just the music which was tailored perfectly , but the added treatment … the singing, the confetti cannon, the banter & comments with guests, it was just perfect, we couldn’t have asked for better or more professional, truly amazing, made the day extra special x x
    Thank you so much

  25. What can I say! Mark brought so much energy, enthusiasm, banter, and of course amazing tunes to our wedding day!! Mark is a top bloke and was a pleasure to work with in the build up. He is so personable and made such an effort with the guests on the night – we had such great feedback from them all about the music and Mark himself. We couldn’t recommend him more highly!! Thanks for such a memorable wedding night!! xx

  26. We wanted to say a big big thank you to Mark! He was absolutely incredible.
    All the attention to detail and research meant he played the right music throughout the night, it really made a difference. He kept everyone on the dance floor right to the end. We don’t know how he remembered all of our guests names too! It gave it such a nice personal touch and our guests all said what a great night they had. We will definitely be recommending Mark to friends and family. Thanks again xx

  27. Wow, we were honoured to be invited to Rob and Suzanne’s wedding on 1/5/17 at Castle Bromwich at which Mark was the DJ/compere and he was fantastic. The music was kicking and Mark was funny & great entertainment. To cap it all – he can sing too, is there no end to his talents? But the highlight was hearing Mark sing a classic song Jessie by Joshua kadison …. Pure magic! Thanks Mark it made my day. Kind regards. Tony and Toni Fray

  28. We both just wanted to say, what an absolutely fabulous wedding reception we had. Much (well lets face it…most) of it down to your music sense and personality. It’s fair to say the guests loved you, and all thought that you were a close friend as you knew so much about everyone and remembered all their names (think my aunts will have a soft spot for you forever!).

    We had a fabulous evening and appreciate all that you did – not sure how many pile on’s you’ve seen at a wedding but there is a first time for everything. Thanks again for being so mega.

  29. Mark, thank you for helping to make the first charity ball for Safeline a roaring success. You were brilliant at getting everyone involved and I loved your idea of gathering donations in return for playing our favourite tunes.
    Great fun!
    You were a delight to work with!
    Kate

  30. Mark was the DJ at the first ever Safeline ball on Friday 28 April in Stratford upon Avon. The ball was a huge success and this was largely due to Mark. He was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Full of energy, intelligently funny, never over-stepping the mark but creating a real party mood and that got everyone going. He was also very compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable about the charity and conveyed this to everyone in the room which encouraged them all to give. He made the event a joyous and successful one. I would recommend him to anyone, exceptional.

  31. Mark Tolliss. What a legend!
    Extremely funny from the word go, was great with all our guests and was just an amazing host. We have had several people ask if he was a friend of ours because that is how it seemed! I have no idea how he remembered all our friends and families names and stories, I even struggle with that! Absolutely took the mickey out of one of our grooms, she had no idea where the inside info was coming from! All this was then topped off with an amazing ending where I sung Aerosmith with him! Genuinely couldn’t recommend him enough, he has so much passion for his job.

  32. Well what can we say…..Mark was our wedding DJ and we couldn’t have booked a more professional, friendly, hard working, absolutely amazing DJ! He went above and beyond to help make our day even more memorable by all the little touches with getting to know our guests, sharing some funny stories. It was like Mark had known us and our guests forever, it was a pleasure to have him at our wedding and we will definitely be booking him again if we have another big bash! So many guests have come back to us asking ‘where did we find him?’ and telling us how fantastic he was. Truly the best! xx

  33. Mark was the DJ for my friend’s recent 40th birthday party and I just wanted to say I thought he was fantastic! The range of music he played was brilliant and had us up dancing all night…I could have kept going!! Thank you Mark for making my friend’s big night an unforgettable one! x

  34. Mark recently DJ’d my friends 40th and I have to say he was fantastic, the dance floor was full all night and he was hilarious. Highly recommended for any function. Even my 10 year old thought he was brilliant.

  35. Hey Mark! I just wanted to send you a MASSIVE thank you everything you did to make my 40th birthday / wedding party – totally amazing! You put so much effort into getting to know me, my family and friends making the evening so special for everyone! Music (and a full dance floor ) is so important to me and I know from experience that the right tunes can make or break a party. You absolutely smashed it!!!! From beginning to end you catered for everyone but all the time playing huge dance floor fillers! Your passion and enthusiasm for what you do is clearly evident and that is exactly why I booked you! You love your job and you put in everything you can to ensure everyone has the best time!!! Your set up is very professional and the lighting looked amazing on the night! I really can’t thank you enough. So many guests and staff at the venue have commented on how good you were and ‘the best party ever’!!!!

  36. A big THANK YOU to Mark for making our wedding evening so brilliant. You put so much effort into getting to know us and our family and friends from the first time we met you (when you invited us over for a cuppa!) through to the big day. You kept everyone on the dance-floor all night, organising a dance off which still has us in fits of giggles!
    We have had so many great comments from our guests about how brilliant you were and how you went the extra mile in getting to know everyone, we really cannot thank you enough and will be recommending you to everyone!
    Thanks again, all the best x

  37. When we went to see Dodford Manor when we were looking at potential wedding venues we fell in love with it. They told us we can only use a DJ from their recommended list. The venue ticked almost every box but this made us second guess having our wedding there. Music is very important to both of us and we know it can make or break the big day.

    We contacted several DJ’s on the list before speaking to Mark. Just from a few minutes talking to Mark his passion was evident and from the get go he made it clear the big day is about us. From the first phone call we knew we were in safe hands with Mark.

    Fast forward to the big day and Mark Tolliss did not disappoint. All of his preparation paid off, he made every guest feel special and catered to everyone. He absolutely killed it. Making our special day even more special. By the end of the night it felt like Mark was one of our guests.

    So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much Mr Tolliss

    Lots of love

    Mr and Mrs Kirby

  38. Omg! Where do I start? I celebrated my 40th birthday on Saturday 25th Feb, with a Black Tie, Glitz & Glam theme at Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel and I chose Mark as my DJ…from start to finish, he’s personal approach and sense of humour was infectious. Mark not only wants to know what songs you want playing but he makes it his mission to know your guests, their connection to you and to understand what makes you tick as a person. His homework paid off more than I could imagine, he was on top form, his setup and lights are outstanding and classy. Mark sings also and what a voice he has, just brilliant! We had so much fun.

    Mark, you made my night Mr! You were just amazing and it felt like we’d known you for years. My guests had an amazing time and haven’t stopped talking about the night and how they didn’t move off the dance floor! It’s a night I’ll remember forever and we’re so glad that you were part of it. A genuine, heartfelt THANK YOU for everything xx

  39. Mark…… Jason & I will never be able to thank you enough for giving us a perfect night at Dodford Manor. from the moment we came to your house you had us in fits of laughter, we felt like we’d known you years!. We we’re amazed at the details you found out about our friends, family & us of course!!!. Your not just a DJ but a pure entertainer who fully interacts with all your guests. Truly amazing & we had a wedding full of fantastic memories especially when you agreed to sing our 1st dance :-). Social media has gone crazy with our friends/family talking about our fab DJ!!!!!!!. Thank you once again for a fab fab night. Love & best wishes Tracey & Jason xx

  40. We hired Mark to Compere and DJ our works Christmas party on 22nd December 2016.
    Every one has commented on how brilliant Mark was on the night.
    He made every one laugh continuously throughout the whole night and also had everyone on the dance floor.
    Everyone has said that it was the best Christmas party that they had been too. This was mostly down to Mark.
    He took control of all of the party games which took the pressure of myself and my colleague who were in charge of organising the party. This meant that we were also able to enjoy the night just as much as everyone else.
    We WILL be using Mark again this year for our Christmas party (if he is available).
    Thank you Mark and Happy new year.
    Best wishes Nicole, Caroline & Trevor x

  41. I am the most popular person in the office this morning. Literally everyone has complimented me on last night’s ‘best ever’ Christmas Party.

    But…

    I can’t accept even the tiniest shred of those compliments.

    The success of the evening was entirely down to our compere, Mark – his professionalism, personality and his unique approach to understanding our company and its characters.

    The result was a perfectly personalised event which had people laughing and dancing until the small hours. It genuinely felt like he’d known everyone in the room for years, and that made everyone feel special and included.

    So, if you’re organising a company or corporate party, and want to make yourself the most popular person in the office – simply hire Mr. Tolliss, sit back and bask in his glory. It’ll be the easiest promotion you ever get!

  42. Mark was the DJ for our wedding this month at Dodford Manor. We met Mark via Skype some months before our big day and we felt like we had known him longer! we instantly clicked and had a laugh with him. He took time getting to know all of our family members from their personalities to their favourite tunes, which was recognised by everyone on the day. Although he wasn’t feeling great on our wedding day, you would never have known! He had everyone up on their feet, laughing, smiling and having fun until the end of the day. Every single person in our wedding party has commented how genuinely kind and fun Mark was (particularly his twerking and Lionel Richie impersonations, ha ha!) We love him so much that we will be using him again for future parties. He made our wedding so so special and we cannot thank him enough. What a great guy! We will genuinely be keeping in touch with you. Thanks again. Lots of Love, Katharine and Afzal Razak xxx

  43. Mark hosted our company Christmas party at the Motorcycle Museum. This is the second time we have been there, and it was an easy decision to return when we knew Mark was the DJ again. Both times have been absolutely brilliant nights. With all of Mark’s personal touches making all the difference…there was a good mix of music all night, the dance floor was full all night…always the sign of a good DJ. I would recommend and use Mark for any personal bookings without doubt.

  44. Mark – from the day we met for our initial meeting in your home we knew how passionate you are about your work and a lovely chap, we could have chatted for hours. Your are the best DJ we have ever heard, and we had so many guests asking if you where a family friend as you knew everyone in the room and made it such a personal occasion for us and everybody there. You are so passionate and obviously enjoy your job so much. And your singing is absolutely fantastic even when we chatted on the phone about songs and you broke into song, its instant your in the moment. Thank you from us both for making our wedding so special, it means so much.

    Thank you again James and Angelina

  45. Many Many Thanks Mark for helping make the Ladies Day at Berkswell & Balsall RFC a great success. You had them all up and dancing all day, top man and a fab entertainer. Happy Days xx

  46. Captains Night Windmill Village Golf Club 12th November 2016

    Mark – Thank You once again for a fantastic night of fun & entertainment on Captains Night Presentation.
    As usual you were Professional from start to finish.
    The way you make an effort to personalise the evening is fantastic and making everyone feel special is definitely a talent we look forward to seeing you next year.
    Kind Regards

  47. A huge thank you to Mark who entertained 65+ children for my Daughters joint 5th and 6th birthday party. After meeting Mark over 9 years ago and experiencing his professionalism, talents and passion for his work as our wedding dj, there is no one else I would ever choose to entertain at a family function. In fact mark has compered and entertained in all of family celebrations since. The 2 hour party was filled with party games, excitement and fun and every child had a ball. There have been no end of positive comments from parents since. Thank you Mark. You are the best!!! xx

  48. Well Mark….what to say??!

    From what was a very stressful run up to our Companies 50 Year Celebration and Charity Evening, you made it quite the opposite on the evening.

    From initial meetings to the day of the event you got to know us all, putting in the time and effort to make sure every stage of the evening ran smoothly … from initial introductions, to the Raffle and Auction, to when you got the party started, your professional and extremely friendly approach shone through.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to request your talent at our future events … you are a star!

    Thank you, Anne x

  49. Mark, a HUGE Thank you for making our wedding reception last night so memorable. You really take the time to get to know not only me and Marc but also all of our guests and made the whole night so special and personal.
    Everyone has commented on how good you were and what a fantastic night they had, so Thank You once again.

    Xxx

  50. Hi Mark,

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for last night. You made our wedding so personal! Everyone has said how lovely it was that you knew everyone’s names and were able to chat and make people laugh throughout the whole evening.

    Thank you again for all your hard work and effort, you were amazing!

    Sophie & Alex
