Hit Leisure Events is the baby of Essex born and bred Danny Grimshaw. The story begins at around 11 or 12 asking for some disco lights as a Christmas present. When a member of family's birthday came around he would set up his 'kit' in the front room annoying his sisters! From here the first gig, a party for a family members birthday, then for a family friend and “DJ Dan's Disco Service” was eventually born!
Danny would play music and set up equipment at any opportunity he could including at secondary school he put on a club night. At one point he also took over his grandparents conservatory and creating a 'disco room' for Christmas, which basically meant filling the room with smoke, playing loud music and experimenting with all kinds of lighting effects! He was in his element and wanted to keep going, and he did...
Danny went on to become a part time DJ and got his first break in Suffolks biggest super club at the time 'DeNiros', Newmarket. At just 17 Danny started working here on lighting control and performing DJ sets at the very popular under 18 club nights along side friends. When Danny turned 18 he then gained a Friday slot in the main club.
Along with the club DJing, Danny started to invest it bits of equipment and went back to doing private functions and promoting what was then “Adect Sound”. Getting busier with the private work he decided to give up his last U18s residency, 3 years at “Innocence Nightclub” now known as "The Ark" in Newmarket along with "Sugar Hut" and proceeded concentrate on his business.
After moving into larger events and more clients each year, Danny re branded as Hit Leisure Events.
Danny is proud and always working on new creative ideas and products to add to Hit Leisure Events. He is planning on continuing to grow the business quite big in many ways and gain more clients, experiences along the way.
