About Ian Boxall

Hello and welcome to Ian Boxall's DJ Events. Ian is a radio DJ based in Sussex on the south coast of England, he is available for weddings, birthdays, and corporate events.

Ian says - "Music is and has always been my passion. Some of my earliest memories are of listening to the Motown music and bands like the Temptations and Supremes that my parents were so fond of. As I got older I started listening to Radio London and DJs such as Tony Blackburn, Robbie Vincent before progressing to live events in pubs, clubs, concert halls and arenas. To this day I attend live events whenever I can.

"Classic soul, jazz and funk feature heavily in my life as I present 2 regular shows every week on Soul Groove Radio, an international station with a wide audience."

Helen Skinner 66th Birthday party

Saturday 24 Feb 2024

Ian was the DJ for my 66th birthday party. I knew of Ian through mutual friends and hearing him on his show on Soul Groove Radio. From the first contact he was so enthusiastic and helpful. Between us we compiled an uplifting playlist for my birthday party. On the night I was so impressed by his fun loving spirit and ability. He even came out on to the dance floor to show us how it’s done! I highly recommend him to anyone planning a fun filled occasion.

    They Say

    Last New Year's Eve I attended a golf club party at which Ian was the DJ. Ian did a 4hr set of party music, reading the audience and playing the type of music which was enjoyed by all. It seemed as if everyone was up and dancing throughout the evening, myself included, as well as the group of friends I was with - we all had a fantastic night! After the event we all agreed it had been a really good night, a great way to welcome the New Year in and we would definitely do it again if Ian was there to DJ and entertain us with his choice of music.!

    Richard Bayliss

    I attended the New Year’s Eve party at Seaford Golf Club 2023/4 and was very impressed with Ian‘s disco set up and the tracks that he played. It was a really great evening and the whole room were up and dancing, which doesn’t always happen at these events. Ian had the ability to assess the music requirements of the people in the room and deliver. He was happy to take requests and at no point was the Dance floor empty! He’s a master of music and I highly recommend him. I’m looking forward to his next gig as I can’t remember the last time I danced so much and had achy knees and feet the following day.


    Absolutely and I love how he has taken to Northern soul and finding a place for it in his shows.

    Mark Catton

    As a new listener to soul music your breakfast shows have been perfect for me for such a good mix of tunes, something for everyone and a bit of education(for me) might have to go back to smooth when you are not here. Thanks I have loved your shows these past few months and I'm going to miss them.

    Sheila Hall

    Thank you for playing my tune Ian and thank you all the music and fun we are going to miss sunrise. But we will still have Tuesdays.

    Marie Ditchman

    I had my 40th birthday party in November 2023 and Ian kindly agreed to do the disco. Ian was amazing, arrived early and got set up quickly, whilst we set up the room, he had music playing. Nothing was too much of a bother and he even let the children talk on his microphone, Ian provided a great atmosphere and kept us up on our feet all night, towards the end the room had really got into fall flow that we didn’t want to stop. Ian has such a lovely character and was so engaging with my guests; he really did make it a great evening.

    Donna Lonsdale

    Seaford Golf Club - New Years Eve Party - 31st December 2023. His choice of music during the Seaford Golf Club New Years Eve Party was superb. Ian has an extensive knowledge of music, and he knows just what to play, at the right time, to keep the audience fully involved. He is extremely versatile, and he adapted the music brilliantly - the dance floor was constantly full, with lots of happy dancers. He was also keen to involve the audience and was more than happy to play requests during the night. A fantastic evening, enhanced by the DJ and his music selections. We are looking forward to his next event.

    Denise & David Melville

    We're very remiss in not writing sooner but felt we had to say - what a brilliant time we had at the New Year's Eve party held at Seaford Golf Club. At previous NYE celebrations the entertainment has been varied but what a difference at 2023-2024. We had such a fun packed evening. The group of friends who we were celebrating with all agreed that the DJ Ian Boxall made the evening so enjoyable. His 'special shirt' and music choices made the whole occasion so much fun. The 60's 70's and 80's music was aimed perfectly at the age level for the guests to sing along and dance to plus he welcomed any requests. His enthusiasm was infectious. Once we were up on the dance floor we hardly left it! Phew!! what a great time. Having experienced such a BRILLIANT evening we will most definitely look forward to other events at Seaford Golf Club when Ian Boxall is the DJ.

    Sue and Pete Baker

    Top DJ Ian! What a fantastic night thanks to Ian playing fabulous tunes throughout the night for Helen’s party @ The Winning Post Saturday. His range of music is endless & he made sure all Helen’s favourite tunes were played (which took lots of communication before the night between them both) but also happy to play any other requests from the guests on the night. Even managed to grab a dance with him when he came out from behind the decks. We all had a blast boogieing the night away & will be recommending DJ Ian for future do’s 100%.


    I can highly recommend Ian to get your party going! As people were arriving, he played a lovely selection of tracks, low key so people could easily mingle, chat and catch up with one another. A little later it was time to step it up and Ian didn’t disappoint! Track after track of great tunes soon had the dance floor filling up - he was happy to take requests too. Ian has a great sense of fun as well as an easy rapport with people. He DJ’d for about 5 hours and played music across all genres - something for everyone and really made it a night to remember.
