Pro Event Hire is the baby of Hertfordshire based “Event Guy” Charlie Evans. The story begins at around 11 or 12 asking for some disco lights as a christmas present. From here the first gig, a party for a family members birthday and “DJ Chaz Disco” was born! Charlie would play music and set up equipment at any opportunity he could at one point taking over his grandparents dining room and creating the music room, which basically meant filling the room with smoke, playing loud music and experimenting with all kinds of lighting effects!
Charlie went on to become a professional full time DJ and got his first break in the areas biggest super club at the time DeNiros. At just 17 Charlie started here working on lighting and doing warm up DJ sets at the very popular under 18 club nights. When Charlie turned 18 he then gained a Friday warm up slot in the main club.
Then it was time for “king of the decks” DJ Competition. This nationwide competition was held by the biggest nightclub operator at the time Luminar Leisure. Charlie came in 3rd out of the hundreds that entered all across the UK. From there things went from strength to strength holding residencies around the country up to 5 nights a week. From Revolution Vodka bars to large clubs such as Liquid and Oceana.
Along with the club DJing, Charlie started to invest it bits of equipment and went back to doing private functions and promoting what was then “Pro Disco Hire”. Getting busier with the private work he decided to give up his last residency, 2 years at “The Place” nightclub in Cambridge and concentrate on his business.
After moving into larger events and bigger capacity Charlie re branded as the Pro Event Hire we know of today.
Pro Event Hire now operates from a 2,500sq ft industrial unit and office in Melbourn, Herts.
Charlie says ” I am extremely proud to have created a business doing something that i love. I hope that the growth continues and we can prove many more great events along the way”
