About Disco in Kernow

Disco In Kernow is a family run business which originated many years ago from the need to provide a disco for Dave’s daughter’s birthday party. This event triggered the passion to provide parties to remember for everyone wanting a disco.

Over the years Disco In Kernow has grown in size from being a one man band to a whole team of dedicated staff. We have a new and exciting DJ, 2 contrasting stage set ups, a range of special effects, and an outdoor mobile event trailer.

All of our equipment is PAT tested and maintained in-house. All members of staff have enhanced DBS checks and we hold full Public Liability Insurance.

Meet the Team

Dave Monkton

I am the driving force and architect of Disco In Kernow. My musical career started in the Midlands with a desperation gift of a guitar from my parents at the age of 8. From that time on I have always been involved in the music industry.

I formed my first band with school mates, going on to form Kontraflow in 1986 and playing in clubs and pubs in the Black Country and beyond. The original members still meet every year for a reunion and a good old jam session, and we remain the best of friends to this day.

Whilst working behind a bar in 1988 I approached the resident DJ and stated I always wanted to try this. I was amazed when he said he had a gig the following evening but was now unable to fulfil, and would I be interested in borrowing his gear and doing the gig.  I grabbed the offer and despite having no instruction in how to use the equipment this became the start of my many years in the Disco business.

Having relocated to Cornwall in 2003, and my daughter approaching 3 years old, I dusted off the decks for a once only disco for her birthday party. My spark was reignited and Disco In Kernow was born. With a vison of 18 discos a year, this was quickly surpassed and Disco in Kernow has become a firm favourite in the South West.

I have entertained parties of all descriptions, including christenings, weddings, birthdays, celebrations of life and even a divorce party. Some of my highlights have been discos in stately homes, castles and outdoors, with the Eden Project being one of the most memorable. I have had the privilege of providing entertainment for Greek, Indian, Jamaican and African weddings. I love to research musical cultures and pride myself with being versatile.

I class myself as not only a Disc Jockey but also a Presenter and a Master of Ceremonies. I am adept at involving the audience in the entertainment and I am only satisfied when the party guests are fully engaged and immersed in the event.

I’m proud to say I am also a bit of a technical expert, building and maintaining many pieces of the disco equipment.

I am approachable and open to all ideas. I will do my level best to ensure your party goes with a bang and ensure your event is personal to you.

Due to my time spent in the music industry I have many contacts, and if specific equipment is required I will be able to draw on this to source exactly what you want. Nothing is too much trouble!

Always keen to develop and expand, I am also the driving force and inspiration behind Westcountry Event Services. WES provides high end sound and lighting equipment, installation and engineering for corporate and business events.

Gareth Peters

My name is Gaz Peters, my DJing started when I was just 10 years old! My dad was a mobile DJ back in the 80s and I would go along with him to the gigs. That started my passion for music and I’ve never looked back since!

I have always had the latest DJ equipment set up on my side at home. I started off with vinyl which led into CDs then into controllers, however vinyl will always be my first love for music. It’s more of a passion than a job for me.

In the early 2000s I won first place at a DJ competition in Liverpool out of 500 people, to DJ in Ayia Napa for six months. I subsequently became the resident DJ in one of the top nightclubs in Shropshire while still DJing in other bars and clubs.

After moving to Cornwall in 2015 I became a Support Worker, working long hours and leaving me very little time to give to my music. Since getting in contact with Dave and Disco In Kernow, he has given me the opportunity to reignite my passion in getting out there and doing what I do best, being a DJ!
