No business should be without a Dave Drane: A cool cat with a head packed with invention and imagination! Dreamwave Events could not be where it is today and it still rapidly moving on up. The sky’s the limit!
Our Co-Director – Dave Drane
Dave keeps Dreamwave ahead of the game. He is well and truly our ideas man. His confidence in his own ability and that of the team, keep Dreamwave DJ’s and Dreamwave Lighting leading the way in innovation.
Like any creative individual, Dave Drane can be a slightly left of the middle. Fixated on his photographic pose (yes there was much debate on which photos to include in this blog post), chiseled features and receding hairline (😱) he is still a complete teddy bear! But make no mistake his professionalism and focus provides the motive power required for success; and nothing succeeds like success!
Dave Drane – What you are will show in what you do (Thomas Edison)
A young Dave begun his career as DJ, “Dave Dreamer.” He also gained a wealth of sound and lighting production knowledge working successfully for Highlite International, a Dutch based audio and visual equipment supplier. Whilst working for Highlite, Dave joined forces with DJ Paul Pollard (our other Co-director) at “Making Waves” to form Dreamwave Events!
I think I have made it quite clear that Dave is our ideas man. I caught up with Dave to get his insight into his perspective on Dreamwave and his role in the mechanics of the business:
When Paul and I started out together almost ten years ago, we never dreamt we would be where we are now within the industry and with such a strong team beside us.
As with any business; roles change, as well as direction. I don’t personally get to DJ as much these days as I’d like but am very happy to hand over the ‘platters’ to our good skilled team of guys. More is required to be done on a day to day basis but we like to stay true to our routes providing a service to clients that is of the highest standard and quality.
Looking ahead Dreamwave is moving in to new areas of the sound and lighting industry with developments in to rental and installations that is proving very exciting and productive.
In a nutshell, Dreamwave Events would not be in the fantastic position it is in now, if it wasn’t for this complete diamond!
