Tony played his first ever set in 1985, and since then he has promoted his own events, including DJ led nights, with guests DJs covering multiple genres, such as Craig Charles, David Rodigan, Pete Tong, EZ, Norman Jay and more. As the market changed, he hosted Boat Parties and Comedy nights, and slowly fell into Weddings and Private bookings. After covering for other companies, he branched out on his own with Sugarbumps, and the whole ethos was about playing as many great tunes as possible. Tracks he grew up with, combined with his client’s favourite tracks. Over the last five years, Sugarbumps have played across the UK, and they have a Festival alter-ego, Back For Good. This has led to the guys playing at Bestival, Common People, and The Big Feastival

How we could work for you....
Past clients have come to SugarBumps, through word of mouth or having experienced either Lukas or Tony at events the clients themselves have attended. Wedding couples will sometimes consider live bands, because they believe that 'the wedding DJ' will be 'cheesy', however Sugarbumps work with their clients track choices. This also means there is more flexibility on the night, which many bands can not offer. Consequently Lukas and Tony have been extremely active with bookings, and will provide a set that will be varied, understanding that guests attending will be of all ages, and cultures.
Most importantly they will ensure that the happy couple feel as though they’re requirements have been considered, making the selection personal and meaningful.
Both Lukas and Tony cater to a wide audience musically, from classics, 70s, 80s, 90s, House, Dance, Funk & Soul R&B, Hip Hop, and just great Pop & Rock. Both will work closely with clients to determine a bespoke playlist for each event; alternatively they will be able to create something on your behalf to make your event a truly memorable one.
