Tony McQue – DJ hire in Edinburgh and the Lothians
Bar, nightlub and event DJ covering Edinburgh and the Lothians
Following a burning desire at an early age to become a DJ, I have now been a professional DJ since 1995 and have still not fallen out of love with entertaining. Prior to this, my long suffering Father drove me about to gigs with a large guitar amplifier and a couple of walkmans but it wasn’t long before I saved like mad and bought my beloved Technics turntables. I started out playing in bars, functions, Christmas parties and weddings in the mid 90s for the legendary Sweet Inspiration before moving on to become resident DJ in many of the capital’s top clubs and bars for several years. I stopped DJing full time in 2008 to concentrate on my new career in IT and to be with my family, this was a huge change for me as being a DJ was everything I had ever wanted to do. I could never hang up my headphones completely as I still have a passion for playing out good music and bringing a dance floor to life; thankfully I have a very understanding other half! My current DJ work has seen me playing regular gigs at the Voodoo Rooms, OX184, Le Monde and playing to over 400 people at corporate events at Murryfield stadium and the EICC.
I was a full time DJ for many years which I have very fond memories of, there are not many people that get the chance to make a full time living out of it. I was resident DJ in Espionage nightclub Edinburgh for over 7 years and Frankenstein for 8 years, I came to think as the DJ booths in those venues as my second home! I ran a DJ agency called Fluid People between 2004 and 2009, with this business I supplied DJs to bars and nightclubs throughout central Scotland.
Some of the many venues I have played at include: Frankenstein, Espionage, City Nightclub Edinburgh (RIP), City Nightclub Falkirk, Opal Lounge, Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh International conference centre (EICC), various event venues and castles across Scotland. I am also quite used to performing in more intimate settings and have the same enthusiasm for doing both large and small scale events.
If you require a professional and experienced DJ with an extensive CV of DJ experience, I am the man for the job. You will be hard pushed to find anyone more passionate about music! I mix everything to a very high standard and play the music that you want to hear. I have a strong determination to provide the perfect night’s entertainment and get great satisfaction when I have achieved this.
I have no hidden agenda or wish to play the latest ‘EDM bangers’, the dance-floor is always the star of my gigs. I have put my name on the line by not hiding who runs this business, it only makes me want to work even harder to maintain my reputation by providing an excellent DJ service to you.

From the very first email exchange knew I had picked a gem. Determined not to go for your average cheesy event DJ I wanted a party that reflected my personality and love of music and gave my friends a night to remember . Tony understood what I was looking for right from the start and was the ultimate professional throughout. We had a fantastic night and danced till our feet were aching. I’d book Tony again in a heartbeat
