talked to Robin Rowe at Jukebox One Night Hire about their
hire service, supplying events and parties with the ultimate
musical soundtrack for their celebrations.
are these Jukeboxes that some customers don't want to let
What is your background and can you please tell us
how Jukebox One Night Hire started and how the company has
evolved into what it is today?
Curtis Beauclair Automatics Ltd was formed in the
early 1960’s and I have been with the Company for most of its
existence. It has morphed over the years from a Company
operating coin operated amusement machines, to the Jukebox
hire Company it is today. Some twenty five years ago we began
hiring out jukeboxes for private parties i.e. birthdays,
weddings, anniversaries etc. In the early
days the jukeboxes we supplied played 45rpm single records.
There were 100 singles on the jukebox which meant that the
choice of tracks was somewhat limited. As time went on singles
were no longer produced and it was time to move on to compact
Jukebox we chose was the iconic 1950’s Wurlitzer “One more
Time” – a nostalgic jukebox now being produced in CD form. It
was ideal for what we required since we could now cater for
our clients music tastes far better. It is also a lovely piece
of furniture and becomes the centre of attraction at the
party. Over the years we have supplied jukeboxes to all manner
of parties at many varied and sometimes strange venues.
Although our main market is family party based i.e. weddings,
birthdays etc. we have supplied a jukebox
for several TV productions including “Dancing on Ice “ and
more recently The “Alan Titchmarsh Show". In recent times we
supplied a jukebox for a corporate event in Rome and a pop gig
in Hyde Park. Our jukeboxes have also been used in several
stage productions – a very varied list! The jukebox is
versatile and fits well into large marquees as well as a
corner of the lounge in a house.
Digger: Please tell us more about
the packages and services on offer and what
and who are your most popular artists, genres and songs?
Wurlitzer contains 60 CD's – about 1200 tracks of music. Our
jukeboxes are initially set up loaded with standard party CD's
covering all eras and styles. Once we know the details of the
party i.e. Teenage birthday, themed Country and Western,
Wedding, Corporate event etc.
we set up the box appropriately. We also encourage customers
who wish to supply their own CD's or downloads to do so as
this personalises the jukebox and ensures that they have the
right music. This is particularly important with weddings
since the couple may have particular music that is special to
them. In this way we can make sure the customer has the music
he or she wants.
are the best and most enjoyable aspects of running Jukebox One
Night Hire? And what customer feedback/comments do you
Our aim is to give people a personal service, which
being a small organisation, we are able to do . We are able to
build a relationship which ensures that they have an enjoyable
experience and return to us when they have another party. Much
of our business comes from recommendation and a considerable
amount of satisfaction we get from hiring the jukeboxes is the
appreciation we get when we arrive to collect. On many
occasions the customer does not want to let it go! I think the
reason people like the Wurlitzer is that not only does it
provide the music but also is an attractive piece of furniture
with character. After the party we try to get feedback and
many customers particularly after a wedding send pictures as
well as complimentary comments on our web site.
What impact has The Internet
had on your business? And where are your customers coming
Most of our business comes from recommendation or
in recent times The Web. The Internet has made an enormous
difference. Not only do customers visit our web site but
communication with them by email is so much easier. The
Facebook links it makes it even better. The Internet
is a blessing as conventional advertising is so prohibitably
expensive for a small organisation like ourselves.
Automatics Ltd was founded in 1958. We have now been in
business for over 50 years so you can rely on us as an
We first supplied jukeboxes to bars and clubs in London
and the surrounding area. Later we started supplying
jukeboxes to private parties. We cater for everyone
having any sort of party or event from weddings and
birthdays to company events. We have supplied jukeboxes
to many hotels and party venues throughout London and
the South East and we are recommended by many as their
preferred music supplier. We also have a number of party
planners and suppliers of marquees who recommend our
company. Our jukeboxes have been used by TV and theatres
in their productions.
You can create a little bit of magic at your party no
matter what the occasion.
