David Rees ~ Founder / CTO

From an early age, I loved music, I also had a keen interest in engineering and technical stuff. With a family of Electricians, I guess you can understand why?! But, from the age of 15 when I purchased my first set of decks (they were rather large in those days), I started to entertain friends, family and guests at Weddings, Birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs and the like…

After a few years, I left Watford to be a radio presenter and I had some success, however, most of my years spent in managerial roles as opposed to being on-the-air, but I enjoyed it. However, in 2009 I decided it was time to return home to Watford where I grew up. I was looking to follow my passion again, and Just Smile was launched. We established Just Smile as an all round Wedding & Events business, providing DJ’s, Lighting, Decoration, Event Production. We are currently expanding the business again into the AV Hire, PA Hire areas, hoping to attract hotels and local businesses to choose us for their audio, video & public address requirements.

I am very blessed to work with a number of people whose company I enjoy. And furthermore, to have good friendships with many wedding venues, hotels, local business owners and other suppliers who work with me, recommend me and in turn, I try to do the same for them. I am also incredibly proud of the business and am delighted that we were a part of over 1,000 successful events in 2015 alone!

Music has been a part of my life right from the beginning, with ABBA holding the Number 1 chart position the day I was born with their hit song ‘Take a chance on me’… and many people have taken that chance and been delighted, I hope you will too!

Establishing Just Smile in Hertfordshire has been a great challenge. One which I’ve enjoyed immensely, and I look forward to many more years working in the area, alongside some fantastic people and their businesses…
