The man behind the Booth!
Hi, I'm Rob Facer, the man behind the booth at Rugby Discos. I'm the man who'll be playing nothing but the best songs at the biggest event of your life (no pressure, right?). But before we get the party started, let me tell you a bit about myself!
I Started my DJ "Career" at 16 on my first day of business College. I signed up to do a business diploma, and my new friend, Luke wanted to introduce me to his friend Sean; who was studying music. in the music suite I saw loads of turntables and music creation material and I was instantly hooked. I downloaded an application called "virtual dj" onto my computer and it took me 3 hours to figure out how to mix my first 2 tracks together seamlessly using a laptop mouse track pad. then I made mix-tapes from my bedroom for my work colleagues at Woolworths. I bought myself a mixing controller to make the art of doing easier Then, I went into making mashups online before I took the plunge at the age of 24 to take on paid work. A mashup is where you mix multiple tracks at the same time, creating something new and exciting for the audience.
Since then, I've gone from strength to strength. I honed my craft in local nightclubs and pubs ; The Black swan or the dirty duck for the locals to Rugby, and Lloyds. Now I'm proud to have Eight luxury venues who trust me to deliver for their clients, as well as 2 really reputable agencies who allow me to wow their clients too.
in 2022, I entered an industry wide competition called The National Wedding Industry Awards. this is a pay to enter competition where your past clients vote for you. I recieved a highly commended award for the West Midlands area. this has done nothing but give me even more motivation to make me a better dj, and as a result I've paid to go to seminars, webinars, bought books to make me not only a better dj, but a better host which only means one thing... better than what was already excellent wedding entertainment!
with all that said, I am a family man. my son, pictured turned 4 in September 2023 and my life goal is to ensure he gets opportunities in life I could only dream of. I've also got a younger brother who is 14. the best thing about being a big brother is teaching great life values whilst having fun. I regularly take him to see our favourite football team; Man United play at old Trafford. as a result we have both been 6 feet away from Christiano Ronaldo and met Luke shaw.
