Party DJ & Wedding Host

Motiv-8 dj history. Contact me for more details.
  • I have been a DJ since 1980, covering Keswick and surounding areas as The Mike Wild Roadshow.
    Over the following 24 months I quickly became established with a number of local wedding venues: The Derwentwater Hotel, The Keswick Hotel, The Ladstock Hotel, and later the Armathathwaite Hall Hotel.
  • Following a short stint on BBC Local Radio, and three summer seasons working overseas in Corfu, Benidorm and Switzerland, I returned home to Cumbria to follow my passion of full-time party DJ.
  • Between 1990 and 1998 my mobile disco business continued to grow.
  • In 2000, I graduated at Carlisle College (Now Carlisle University), studying TV and Media.
  • For the new millennium, I changed the business name to Motiv-8 Video and Disco. To incorporate the new Wedding Video Service, The Mike Wild Roadshow and the Race Night service called, Cumbria Race Nights.
    Motiv-8 Video and Disco is often shortened to Motiv-8.
  • Early 2001 - The Mike Wild Roadshow was revamped, with a new Nexo sound system, and new lighting. The disco was renamed to Advance Disco.
