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, 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, I ended up in managerial roles and enjoyed some amazing experiences both creating radio, but also working in some of the countries largest events (Party in the Park). 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.

I established Just Smile as an events company, providing everything from DJ’s & Lighting to Stage & Event Production. We are constantly expanding the business and are the leading supplier in Hertfordshire to hotels & venues. Plus we work with a number of corporate businesses providing their Audio Visual for meetings & events.

I am very blessed to work with a number of people whose company I enjoy. And furthermore, to have good friendships with businesses, hotels & venues and other suppliers who work with us, recommend us and in turn, we try to do the same for them.

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!
