“Rob and his team were the absolute best! They are friendly, professional and knowledgeable. With so many moving pieces in coordinating a wedding, it was wonderful having a DJ that was so proactive, organized, and enthusiastic. We really didn’t have to worry about a thing. You can tell he takes pride in his job and will do anything for you to make sure you have a fun filled evening. Our dance floor was filled the entire night (into the early morning) and our guests are still talking about our reception! Thank you for an evening where long lasting memories were made. We would highly recommend these guys to anyone!” – Tamryn, wedding in Constantia
“Thank you so much for the best wedding music we could have wished for – it was absolutely amazing! You kept the party going! Very random question but is there any chance you have the playlist you played for our wedding? A number of my mates literally think you are better than Pete Tong and keep asking me for it. No drama if not but if you do it will elevate you to Hero status!” – Benji & Lisa, wedding at Die Strandkombuis
“Thanks so much to Rob and his team for successfully DJ’ing at a recent 100 pax pre-wedding rehearsal dinner and wedding celebration we hosted – with a wide variety of guests from all over UK, America and SA! Such a professional team, on time, so accommodating and totally went the extra mile. Of course Rob had everyone dancing the night away too! We love working with such amazing suppliers and we will definitely be working together for our future Wedding Concepts weddings!” – Megan Kenney-Boyle, planner at Wedding Concepts
“Cannot recommend Rob highly enough, He helped ensure our wedding was a truly memorable day and night with the dance floor packed from the outset and with music to suit everyone’s tastes! Rob was extremely helpful right throughout the planning phase helping us work through a range of sound issues and making sure that we had the right setup for ceremony, speeches and finally the dance floor. He works with you to figure out your taste in music, blends that with his own style and ability to read a crowd to produce something truly spectacular on the night and even has the DJ skills to quickly change tack if the dance floor isn’t buzzing at full tilt. Great guy and a great DJ! Thanks Rob” – Guy & Michelle, wedding at Cavalli Estate
“Rory played at our wedding in November at Silvermist Wine Farm and helped make it the perfect day. These guys are professional, read the crowd well and kept the dance floor packed all night – they managed to keep people from all over the world entertained. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and would absolutely recommend him again. Great work guys.” – Peter & Carolyn, wedding at Silvermist Estate
“We had a special musical request for a Caribbean themed party and DJ Rory added some calypso/steel drum music to his repertoire to add to the ambiance of the evening. He had a good feel for the crowd and kept the dance floor full all night. Definitely use ONO again!” – Cynthia Berlier, birthday party in Blaauwberg
“ROB, you and your team were fantastic – can’t recommend you enough. Very professional, super easy and friendly to work with. Also very helpful, and in the end made our day and evening magical. Thank you so much and congratulations on a job incredibly well done!” – Rikus & Stephanie, wedding at Langverwagt
“Rob is an INCREDIBLE DJ!!! I couldn’t recommend him enough! He had our entire wedding on the dance floor the whole night… he was so good that when his time was up, we asked him to stay on for another 2 hours and he did so without hesitation. His communication prior to our wedding was also very prompt and professional too. He played in a huge part in making our wedding the best night ever! Thanks so much Rob!” – Kelly & Anton, wedding at Vrede en Lust
“DJ Trent was an absolute champion! We received compliments from several guests, young and old, at our wedding about how great the DJ was. Excellent service, great music and a full dance floor. You can’t go wrong with ONO Music. Thank you Rob and Trent!” – Werner, wedding at Donkerhoek Fruit Syndicate
“Ono Music is great for all ages – even 80 year olds! Your DJ, Rory, read the crowd perfectly and fed them what was required. Quick and efficient set-up, sadly, breakdown came to soon for everyone…” – Lynn, 80th birthday party in Hermanus
“Thank-you so much for the amazing job you did at my wedding. Hiring a DJ is such a stressful job as music can make or break a wedding reception, and you couldn’t have done a better job at my wedding. Rory was the DJ at our wedding and he was so professional and he played the best music that had people dancing all evening! I couldn’t recommend this company enough!” – Kenny & Chloe, wedding at De Uijlenes
“Rob and his superb team really helped us out last minute at a recent 2 day wedding celebration when we were unexpectedly let down by another DJ. He literally swooped in and saved the day! Rob comes with no pretence or ego and really does go the extra mile on the night. He’s super easy to work with and literally is a party starter! His equipment is neat and tidy and I’m looking forward to booking him for many more weddings in the future. Thank you again Rob!” – Katie Diaz, planner at Wedding Concepts

Dance Floor Hire
You can hire a black & white dance floor from us for your event, which can be laid on a flat surface, grass, or gravel. We recommend one square (approximately 1m x 1m) per 4 guests, allowing 2 guests per square, assuming 50% of the guests will be on the dance floor at any one time. So for 100 guests, you should get a 25 square (approximately 5m x 5m) dance floor. If laid on grass or gravel, we need to lay under tiling plus the dance floor.
Dance floor pricing is as follows:
Dance floor only (on hard, flat surface): R110 / square
Under tiling (for uneven / soft surfaces such as grass and gravel): R50 / square
Transport is charged at R5/km from Claremont, Cape Town, but you can save on this if you are already using one of our DJ packages
Dry hire rates attract a 20% discount (you collect, setup, and return)
Minimum charge on dance floors is R3,500
For example, if you need a 25 square (5m x 5m) dance floor on grass, the total cost is 25 x (R110 + R50) = R4,000 excluding travel. The same dance floor on concrete would cost R25 x (R110) = R2,750 = R3,500 (minimum charge) excluding travel.
