We would like to thank you for your contribution in making our wedding a huge success. You did a wonderful job of selecting the right music for the occasion and read our guests like a pro. Everyone had a ball! We would especially like to thank you for going the extra mile in obtaining a copy of our first dance song. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends! Thanks again from a very happy Cheri and Daniel Main

The Ridler is a fantastic DJ, we have used him on several occasions as well as our Wedding day. He interacted well with the guests and accommodated their song requests. We have only received compliments on the entire event and I felt that Jono was a very large part of that success. The Ridler always has everyone up dancing all night and changes the music to suit the crowd.

Thank you so much Jono, you were absolutely fantastic as the DJ and MC at our wedding! We’ve had so many guests commenting on the awesome music and how funny you were as MC. You took care of the whole wedding for us, from the ceremony through the reception and played the perfect music to keep everyone up and dancing all night long!

Jenna & Liam Newey


Great DJ, reasonably priced. Jono was friendly, well prepared and understood exactly what we wanted for our wedding. He was very helpful and would definitely recommend him!

Vanessa Holmes


We would like to thank you for all your work at our wedding. We have received nothing but compliments about the day and reception, you played a huge part in that. We loved that you were able to source all the songs we wanted for the ceremony and cocktail hour and later on in the night were able to read the crowd and adapt the music to who was out there dancing. We had a perfect day and would like to formally thank you for you contribution to that. We will definitely be recommending you to others.

We are so incredibly happy and grateful. You are amazing!

I have to write and thank you so much for making this Wedding such a superb party. Your expertise at getting the music just right was amazing – the dance floor was always full. This was just the finale to your job – you have been a pleasure to deal with, very professional and always available to answer our calls and emails. Thank you Jono, we will certainly recommend you to others and happy to reassure any of your future clients of your ability.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for being our DJ on Friday! Everyone loved the music, they have all commented and said how good it all was! You made our day so easy, being at the ceremony and reception and we loved all the music you played on the dance floor:) Thank you for travelling all the way up there for our day! You helped to make it stress free and wonderful, thank you!!

Rebecca & Josh Rosser


We hired Jono to be the DJ for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier. Not being too musically versed ourselves, we didn’t have much to give Jono in guiding the set list for the night. Jono did an outstanding job at selecting a good variety of music to suit the guests and was very accommodating to any requests. He arrived and set up at the venue with plenty of time and was on the ball throughout the night. Highly recommended to all.

Peter & Kristy van Loon


Jono did a great job at my wedding on the 17th January 2019. Super happy with how professional he is and the music choices he made for our Wedding Reception. Would 100% recommend him for your event or wedding!

Jessica Heslin


Jono was amazing! Very professional and great to deal with. During the wedding process it can be easy to feel stressed but Jono would always answer my emails in a timely and lovely manner, always putting my mind to ease and helping with suggestions and guidance along the way. He made things stress free.

On the night he was great. He set up so quietly that I did not even notice. I gave him a few song suggestions and told him a rough idea of what I wanted – a mix of old school and also new stuff. He played great music and a perfect mix of these. Heaps of people were up and dancing – all ages! it was so much fun!

Great value for money and I will not hesitate to recommend Jono to anyone looking for a top class DJ. Thanks again for everything!

Natasha Vyfvinkel


Thank you so much for everything that you did for us last Saturday on our big day. Elizabeth and I massively appreciated how organised things were, and how professionally everything was carried out, and would have absolutely no hesitation in using your services again, and recommending you to friends for future events.

Simon & Elizabeth Lewis


Big thank you to Jono for being our DJ last weekend at our Wedding. He did a fantastic job. Music was a good mixture and he also did our lighting which included a custom light effect that projected our names on to the wall (which was better than what we imagined). We’ll definitely recommend!

Greg & Kelly Nicholson


Thank you for being apart of our special day and for making everything run so smoothly. You were very easy to deal with and we felt comfortable leaving everything up to you on the night. Music makes such a difference to an experience and I am 100% certain everyone had a great night and spent most of their time on the dance floor! Thanks again for everything and we will get through some photos as soon as we can!

We have had Jono DJing our company events for the last few years and will continue to book him in the future. He is professional, fun and always plays the latest hits. He has a huge selection of music to choose from and is great with taking requests. He even dressed up in our Christmas Party theme last year!

We engaged Jono to provide music, sound and lighting for our workplace event. Jono was awesome, not only did he help us plan the best way to use the space for best sound and lighting, he also provided support to our facilitator. A true professional who made our event more fun and enjoyable.

We have had Jono DJ our company Christmas Parties for several years now and he never fails to get our people up on the D-floor. He knows how to play to the crowd with a mixture of ages and musical preferences and always creates an awesome atmosphere!

Corporate Event

We hired Jono to DJ at our corporate ball. Jono was prompt, extremely professional, and his ability to read the crowd, and play the music that gets people dancing the night away was fantastic, as well as concluding the night with the perfect last song – Bohemian Rhapsody. We would hire him again in future without a doubt!

AGAIN Jono, just want to say how FAB you were at my party!! Just went to a 21st with a different DJ who felt the need to play his guitar and sing the songs, then with the songs, and then between songs as he looked for the next song to play! I’m sooo pleased you weren’t like this! lol. You were soo fantastic and literally made the night!! Thanks!!

Chloe Charlotte

21st Birthday Party

It was fantastic working with Jono, who was the DJ for the Barfoot & Thompson World Triathlon Grand Final in Auckland. He was part of the Sports Preso team who delivered an engaging and entertaining spectator experience throughout the event week.

School Event

To sum up the actual disco I will use the children’s own words: ‘That was the best disco ever!’

I have helped at countless discos over the years and never have I heard so many children making that statement. The music he played was suitable for the different age groups; he has fantastic lights and a smoke machine which really helped set the mood of the disco, and his spot prizes were very generous. Most importantly though, the children responded very well to him and had great fun!

Ridler DJ was fantastic! Brilliant communication before disco, set up with plenty of time and a fantastic entertainer all night for the children’s disco. Parents and children all had an amazing time, with games and great music. Thank you so much for making our school disco such a success, will definitely be using again.

School Event

Just a few words to say thank you very much for an outstanding school disco at Pigeon Mountain Primary School last night. Both the junior & senior sessions were brilliant & the kids literally ‘came to the party’ & had a great time. It’s not easy keeping the kids engaged for an hour & a half, but from the moment you came on, the kids were up there showing their stuff. Special effects & spot prizes topped the night off very well. Thanks again from PMPS PTA – see you next year!!!

School Event

At the beginning of the school year, as we plan our fundraising events, the first thing we do is set our disco dates and contact Ridler DJ. Not only does he play great music, he is awesome at getting everyone up and dancing, running the dance competition and is always on time and set up quickly. Thanks for making our discos so much fun!
