I would highly recommend Tim Helmy.” – Georgina Chorley, The Shores Tavern, Yamba NSW

Helmy also has this unique, outgoing personality which everyone loves, making him a key asset in my business. I can confidently recommend Tim to any venue requiring a quality DJ.” – Nathan Heng, Owner of Rumpus Room, West End QLD
