Jukebox45s hire modern high quality full sized commercial jukeboxes for all sorts of occasions. A jukebox hire is great for wedding receptions, house parties, office parties and corporate events. Jukeboxes can also be hired for theatre, television and trade shows (we provide jukeboxes for ITV, BBC, Channel 4, Earls Court, NEC, London Arena Olympia etc). Jukeboxes are a great way of entertaining your guests and provide a visual showpiece. A jukebox is much better than having a DJ. The jukebox provides an excellent focal point at your function. People enjoy choosing the music that they want to listen to and because they have had this input, more readily dance and enjoy themselves. It plays what you want to hear (unlike most DJs).
Jukebox45s offer a great professional service and have a proven track record. We were the first company in the UK to offer jukebox hire on a commercial basis and we were the company that introduced services where customers can choose the music that is loaded, Cd Jukebox Hire, Digital Jukebox Hire, Video Jukebox Hire, USB connectivity, Ipod Connectivity and much more. Where we lead others follow.
Due to the amount of jukebox hires we arrange in the area we are proud to announce we now have a franchise in Essex covering London, Kent and the South East of England. We now also have a franchise in Scotland. Less driving for us, better prices for you.
Our charges are cheaper than all our competitors and cheaper than a good quality DJ. Our average charge for a full sized jukebox delivered and collected is £295.00 - Our cheapest jukebox hire charge for a full sized jukebox, collected and returned by you is £195.00. (This applies to the hire of an Americana or Silversmith Digital Jukebox). We can also arrange for you to either collect; with us picking up, or for us to deliver; with you returning the jukebox. A wooden carry box and sack barrow are provided. You will need a vehicle big enough to load the Jukebox. Generally this will require a van with a tail lift. Our very cheapest hire is for the 'Jukebox in a box' service. Normally around £155.00. Our most expensive hire is for the Video Digital Nostalgia jukebox. This jukebox as well as playing great music is loaded with pop videos that are played on an external Plasma Screen.
If you get a cheaper quote; ask what jukebox is being hired to you, if can you choose the music going into the jukebox, can you add some of your own music and about insurances. We'll always try to match a quote you receive elsewhere. Many of our customers hire jukeboxes because they are fed up with shoddy DJs - don't then hire from a shoddy jukebox hirer. Also in the words of the Beatles "Don't Let Me Down"...every year we bail out our competitors - who hire jukeboxes and then at the last minute, let their customers down. We always fulfill our bookings.
The two main factors in deciding your choice of jukebox are firstly, choose the look you prefer and then decide between a CD, Digital or Video jukebox. The 'fun' and 'entertainment' that you will enjoy from each of the jukeboxes is the same. With the Digital jukeboxes you can have loaded tens of thousands of songs, but there is something to be said for giving it some thought and limiting the number of songs available (see note below). The Digital Nostalgia comes preloaded with every top 40 song since 1952 and it also has thousands of new and classic pop videos ready to play and add something more to your party. The Manhattan, Nostalgia and Americanas have the classic bubbles perculating over the body. All light up and look great. The Americana is a fantastic looking jukebox and whether it is hired for a wedding reception or other event, it is very popular with everyone who hires it. The Manhattan and Nostalgia jukeboxes are better built and more stylish jukebox than their Wurlitzer counterpart. They are also more expensive to buy. The Manhattan is made of wood and metal. A Wurlitzer jukebox is made of mdf and plastic. The Silversmith provides the opportunity to go for a more modern look and style.
The Fantastic Astronaut Jukebox!
The Spaceman above has a a state of the art touchscreen digital jukebox built into his suit. He stands a life size 6ft tall. The sound is superb. The Spaceman is ideal for parties, shows and corporate events. Great fun and an amazing and unique centre piece. The Astronaut jukebox adds visual and audio impact to any party or event.
Features of the Video Jukeboxes
1)The video capable Digital Nostalgia jukebox is provided with up to two 42" Plasma Screens on stands. This jukebox is fantastic and brings a new dimension to any party or event. The Video Digital Americana has a built in video screen, but can also be provided with additional external screens.
2) The Nostalgia jukebox can also display photos intermittently in between the pop videos. These must be in JPG format and saved to a USB memory stick. So if you have some pictures of the birthday girl or boy or of the couple to be or of the company staff or products this is an excellent way of showing them.
Optional Karaoke Feature of the Digital Americana Jukebox
The Digital Americana plays both ordinary music tracks and/or karaoke music.
Please confirm if you require this free additonal option. Click here to see how it works.
Jukebox in a Box
If you are just looking for the music and functionality of a digital touchscreen jukebox, but do not want or need a full sized jukebox, then this may be for you. This fantastic unit can be placed on a table or atop your home hi-fi and provides all the music and sound you would normally get from a touchscreen jukebox. This item can be delivered by us or it can be sent by courier with you returning it to us the first working day after your party. This unit will connect to your existing hif-fi. It just needs to have a line-in. We can also provide a seperate amplifier and speakers.You and your guests can then use it just like any other digital jukebox. The screen is the same size as is in the Silversmith jukebox or Americana Digital Jukebox. Basic price £155.00. This is a great alternative if the delivery charge to your party for a full standing jukebox is beyond your budget.
Also available are party lights, extra speakers, smoke machines and bubble machines. We recommend the extra speakers if you are planning a very loud party, or are holding your party in a marquee. The extra speakers can also be used to provide music to rooms seperate to where the jukebox is situated. This includes having music routed into outdoor areas. We also have some great offers:
Use the Jukebox as a P.A System
Jukebox45s can supply a professional wireless microphone that can be connected up to the jukebox. This then enables people to make announcements and give speeches using the jukebox as a powerful P.A System. This is Ideal for weddings.
Can I connect my IPOD or Laptop to the Jukebox?
Yes. All the jukeboxes, including the Astronaut jukebox can be connected to an Ipod or Laptop.
Our Digital Americana and Jukebox In A Box Jukeboxes are IPOD & USB Stick ready.
With all our Digital Americana Jukeboxes and Jukeboxes in a box you can plug in a USB memory stick or an IPOD at any point and all the music on the device will be immediately scanned and added to the music on the jukebox. When this is removed this music is then removed from the jukebox. This then gives customers the opportunity to add and remove music that is only required for particular parts of the day. For instance, at a wedding you could have some classical music for the daytime and have this removed in time for the evening's party. Don't confuse this with other jukebox hirers who will say they can also connect an IPOD - their IPOD connection will involve the IPOD just being played through the amplifier of the jukebox - not having the music read and added to the music already on the jukebox.
The music is just as important, if not more important, than the jukebox itself. If you give us no instruction we will provide an excellent mix of thousands of songs for your party; covering the 60's through to date. But you can choose the music from our lists if you wish.
If you have hired a Digital Jukebox (Digital Americana, Digital Spaceman Jukebox, Digital Jukebox in a Box) we require that you use the following online form to submit your choices. A) Music just for Digital Jukeboxes
Providing Some Of Your Own Music
If you intend to hire a CD jukebox and provide some of your own music, we ask that you download this template for your title cards. This is a word document and can be downloaded by clicking here. Complete this with your CD/Title card details and email it to us as an attachment. If you wish to add some of your own music into a digital jukebox that you have hired, this can be saved to a CD or DVD. A trial version of the software used on the Silversmith and Americana jukebox can be downloaded from www.silverjuke.net . Please note that you can not add your own music to the Digital Nostalgia jukebox. We advise that you download a copy of this and edit your files to sit tidily when using this software. With both the CD and Digital music, will need this sending to us at least 3 weeks before the date of hire.
If you would prefer a higher proportion of music from any period of time or genre with your jukebox hire, then let us know. We will then replace some of the albums to suit. You may wish to also add a few of your own favourite cds and this can be arranged. At Christmas time we always add a few Christmas CDs. Please Note: Some of your own music can not be added to the Digital Nostalgia.
Too much of a good thing? The average party will have around 150 songs played. The cd jukeboxes hold around 2,500 songs. Usually we limit the digital jukeboxes to around this figure. From experience this then creates a better 'playlist' for your party and enables people to more quickly view and choose their selections. We will however, if instructed put more music into the digital jukeboxes, but trust us, you can have too much of a good thing. You don't want people spending an age looking at tens of thousands of songs on your jukebox. Parties are better for a considered choice of music, rather than an 'open' list. But let us know if this is what you would prefer.
Pinball Machines to Hire
We have a fantastic collection of music related Pinball Machines. To the right we have the Guns N Roses Pinball. This has 6 ball multiplay and features some great songs from the band. We can also hire the classic Kiss Pinball Machine (one of the most sought after pinballs in the world), the Tommy (The Who) pinball, the Elvis pinball machine and the Creatures Of The Black Lagoon Pinball Machines.
Wedding & Party Video Recording Kiosk
This a fantastic addition to any party or wedding.
At a push of a button on the touchscreen the video recording kiosk will ask if you want to take a photo or record a video message.
This gives guests and family the opportunity to leave a personal message and best wishes for the bride and groom or the birthday girl or boy. It's great fun and creates a great informal memento and keepsake of your special day.
The video and photos are recorded in high definition quality and can be taken away with you at the end of the party or left with us to be professionally edited.
