COPIED FROM WEBSITE, costing 185.00. - (15.00 was taken off the cost for daughters birthday present bringing price down to 170.00)
I telephoned in the week to make sure LEVI was still coming, he told me he was (should have known he was a con man coming all the way from Wolverhampton when i live in west wales).
The day of my daughter's party i had a phone call from a local DJ saying LEVI had asked him to do my daughters disco as his van had broken down - even though he is RAC covered:
We also have the following
* Public liability insurance for 5 million pounds.
* Safety Tested equpiment
* RAC break down cover just in case
* Smartly presented experienced DJ
* our dj also has full crb checks.
The local DJ told me he was to charge me 140.00 even though he only supplied the disco - no party games and prizes, no bubble or smoke machine, no fantastic lights display. (He would have charged me 110.00 if i had gone direct to him).
I telephoned LEVI REYNOLDS to say i would like my 30.00 deposit refunded as apart from supplying the disco nothing else happened. He promised me he would refund through paypal. Next thing i get an e-mail saying:
"I'm sorry the manager has decided that your not entitled to a refund of your deposit, as you signed a contract and we provided your disco services and you agreed to the terms and conditions of the contract."

Yes i did sign a contract, and no. 12 says they reserve the right to substitute alternative entertainment should uncontrollable circumstances dictate the need to do so - HOWEVER - with RAC cover a van breaking down should not be uncontrollable circumstances.
i had to go out on the Sunday morning of my daughters birthday and purchase party prizes - extra cost on top of the 170.00
I HAVE BE CONNED! and it seems i am not the only one, if only i had found this site before i booked him.
