My Story

I have my father to thank for my vocation, because in 1973 at a tender age, we moved to Caister-On-Sea, near Great Yarmouth. I was the son of a holiday camp manager and, wow, did I enjoy those 70's summers!


 I was on the mic calling bingo at twelve years old, always smitten by the 'Blue Coats', entertainments team and visiting cabaret; I just wanted to be part of it all.

So, I quickly got myself involved working sound and lights in the 1500 seater ballroom, 'Neptunes Palace', and at sixteen, with the help of my cousin, I had my first disco decks. In no time at all, I was in demand!


 I was fortunate to land a summer season at the Florida Club in Hemsby - ok it was a kids disco - 6 nights a week, but it was a brilliant grounding and a lesson in how to entertain kids. Soon though, I was on the big stage in Neptunes Palace, Caister, 18+ weekends and the like; condensation, energy, and funny smells!


 I became mobile working pubs and hotels and was offered a residency at a Great Yarmouth nightclub owned by Peter Jay, who had hits in the '60s with Peter Jay & the Jaywalkers. From there, my biggest break came. A local entrepreneur and true gentleman, Howard Platt, bought Tiffany's in Great Yarmouth and through Martin Smith, a great friend and General Manager at Tiffany's, I became the head of a vast team of DJ's including Chrissie Jackson, Paul Allen, John Rodgers & Carl Castledine.

Suddenly I was working alongside some of the biggest names in the business -not only Radio 1 DJ's like Steve wright, Simon Bates, Simon Mayo, Gary Davies and TV celebrities such as Sam Fox, Stefan Dennis, Mike Reid - but some of the biggest international recording artistes of the day. What a privilege to introduce on stage Rick Parfitt & Francis Rossi, Edwin Starr, The Real Thing, La Toya Jackson, and The Fatback Band to name but a few, and I have been heard on Radio Broadland (Heart FM) and BBC Radio Norfolk, and for a while, the voice behind the speakers at Carrow Rd, the home of Norwich City Football Club.


 With this in mind, you can trust The Dave Starbuck Roadshow to deliver the best mobile disco entertainment, whatever the occasion!
