" The V&A Museum of Childhood DJ Jan 2020"

I am an international artist, musician, professor, and now a party DJ entertainer.
I really enjoyed introducing my young children to sound, music, and dancing.
Scarlett put on her first vinyl record on her own on her 2nd birthday 2007.
A proud dad indeed.

In the photo below my kids are choosing, playing and dancing to records all on their own

in 2007 Scarlett and then Phoenix inspired me to start the disco
and to share these experiences with the new generations ahead

I host parties to share this passion with children of alll ages.

I now also host crazy teen parties too

see also my Monthly Child & Parent Party Series at Riverhouse Barn INFO/DATES here

"You could not have done anything to make it a better disco party, thank you " [5th birthday]


Sound = energy, and I call myself
Mr Manic

as my name is Janek = Do Not Panic - we are guaranteed good times :->

I play loads of contemporary digital dancing music and stacks of retro vinyl,
and lots of party games to suit the age group.
I am the 'School Disco' DJ for Ashley School in Walton-on-Thames and many others
so I know how to handle the mayhem of energetic kids!



I am passionate about sharing the whole history of
dancing music. For all age groups I encourage dancing to music
from a range of decades [to suit the event]

I try things out, interact and improvise >
Current music is strong on the agenda as I know what gets them excited.

The children get to take part in choosing, handling and playing the vinyl,
which is a wonderful way to interact with music.
Dancing to all sorts of vibes, Playing with sound toys, singing,
playing musical pass the parcel & musical statues,
dance with scarves, blow up microphones & air guitars etc etc,
just have fun with sound together etc etc etc

I promise never to play the Birdy Song or Agadoo....
But old style Hokey Cokey is great fun of course and socially interactive.
I also bring disco lights, glitter, and bubbles which are a guaranteed hit.
Smoke machine too if venue allows it [please confirm].

"The kids had a great time, as did their parents - many of whom have described it as the best kids party they have attended"
[Birthday for the daughter of a DJ. Central London]

Dancing is an important part of growing up. Sharing & dancing together with our children is a joy to behold.

Certainly the best entertainer I have ever booked. I could not recommend him highly enough. I booked Mr Manic
with his Lucky Dip Disco for a party I hosted in June 2013 - words can not describe what fun we all had......
Janek entertained the children and adults alike for hours ! [Lucy]

"Janek is a Disco Genius and ensured that every base is covered when entertaining a room full of 4
year olds for our daughters joint birthday party. Boundless energy and a far reaching passion for music made
way for the PARTY OF THE YEAR. We couldn't recommend Janek highly enough" [Amy & Louise]

I booked a Mr Manic disco party in December 2012 for my daughter's 4th birthday.
We had the best kid's disco I can imagine. Janek is professional and a child's entertainer as well as a dj all in one!
Kept the kids and the adults entertained! We loved the choice of music and the organised activities
which make Janek more than just a DJ. It was brilliant and I would definitely recommend Lucky Dip! [Catherine]

Thank you so much for being so outstanding at getting the moody teenagers to really enjoy themselves to the extent
that birthday girl Rebecca declared her party to have the been the "first disco she has actually enjoyed".
Her friends have also said how much they enjoyed it too. [13th Birthday 2015]

"We'd much rather party with the Lucky Dip Disco than at the local nightclub" [Ava 18 & Inez 16 and friends]

If you want to give your child a party to remember then book with Lucky Dip.
Janek kept my son and his friends thoroughly entertained. He has a great rapport with children, an immense
sense of fun and the music was great for the children and the adults alike. I would recommend him wholeheartedly. [Claire]

In April 2013 Janek provided all of the entertainment for our wedding celebration.
Janek delivered Lucky Dip Disco for more that 30 young guests and their folks filled with high energy games,
dancing, music and creative chaos followed by a wedding party for 100 like no other!
We had a totally unforgettable night that was unique to us and our guests.
Our children and their friends are still talking about their special moments djing, dancing and being the stars of the night.
If you love music you'll love Lucky Dip Disco. [Helen]

A fun time is guaranteed with Mr Manic! Janek weaves his music magic and gets the kids under his spell
with his unique sense of fun, love of music and energy. My two children have been to several of Janek's
Lucky Dip Discos and each time have had a blast. 10 out of 10 for a children's party idea. [Lisa]

I just wanted to recommend Janek for a brilliant disco that he did last night for my pre-teen kids (11/12's can be awkward age for discos)
Janek read the crowd just right and have had lots of texts from parents saying they kids thought it was the 'best party ever!'
He did games and kept the crowd fully entertained for 2 hours!. Highly highly recommend him! I even enjoyed myself! [Maria]

Janek - You are such a star. Thank you very very much for today. Rose had a fantastic time. I am extremely grateful.
You really have a unique talent. You brought out the fun and joy in all those children. And they were not bored for one second.

A big thank you for DJ-ing at Anabel’s 5th birthday party on Sunday [2016].
There was such variety – I loved seeing how fascinated the kids were with the gramophone, and seeing all the parents waltzing with their kids was wonderful.
 I also liked the way you calmed them down just before their tea – and the rest of the time they were jumping, dancing and wearing themselves out!
Anabel gave it a “100 out of 10” and her favourite part was when she was in control of stopping & starting the record player.
PS – you were right, Aga-doo should always remain in the “unlucky dip disco ” box!

"That party was just TOO GOOD Mr Manic" "What do you mean Miss Emily" "I just Loved all of it Mr Manic"

then “Thank you Mummy, Thank you for booking Mr Manic, Best Party Ever - with a big smile on her face !" [Emily Age 6]
