History (short version)
In 1977 when Atomik was established proper by it’s new owner Chris Doherty it was initially as a mobile discotheque company. However as the disco business grew and evolved we grew and evolved too, into sales, service, installation and manufacture. But never forgetting our beginnings. However after 23 years in the business (a long time after our coming of age) the demand for our mobile discotheque services has increased beyond comparison. As we now look to an even more colourful and sound future you too can become part of that with us by choosing Atomik for your entertainment and join our long list of satisfied customers. Atomik - established 23 years – book with confidence.
History (long version) I guess the best person to write this page is me. If you are new to Atomik Disco then I would like to introduce myself to you! My name is Chris Doherty and it’s all my fault! That emotive name of the 70’s is still here. Surviving through the nuclear arms race of the super powers in the 70’s & early 80’s and the UK’s very own Greenham Common. I can tell you I took some stick back in those days over the name Atomik. Can you imagine having to defend your company’s name before anybody had seen or heard your discos? But now it’s different, it’s cool to be called Atomik – just look at the Internet, with all sorts of variations on how to spell it! To a lot of people over the years we have always been known as Atomik Disco so for us it was the logical choice to register atomikdisco.com. I hope you feel as comfortable with the name as we do.
In 1977 when Atomik was established proper by ME - it’s new owner - it was a 1 mobile disco company. My popularity and professionalism was so (it’s true) that very quickly it grew to 2 then so on. I had expanded to 10 mobile discos by the late 80’s. By 1998 Atomik had grown to 18 mobile discos and 2 karaokes. Ever aware of over expansion I am presently very happy to keep the level at 18 mobiles and 4 karaokes. In tandem I have always supplied a DJ only service to pubs, clubs and hotels. Although initially Atomik was purely a mobile discotheque company, it wasn’t too long before we diversified. As the disco business grew and evolved we grew and evolved too, into sales, service, installation and manufacture. But never forgetting our beginnings. However after 23 years in the business (a long time after our coming of age) the mobile disco side of our business still remains the steadfast core of our business today. It has remained as popular as ever and increased beyond comparison. As we now look to an even more colourful and sound future you too can become part of that with us by choosing Atomik for your entertainment and join our long list of satisfied customers.

At Atomik what we do is what we do best - supplying mobile disco and karaoke entertainment packages with different sized systems to suit all budgets and of course with the right choice of DJ or Operator.

Our experience is enormous with expertise second to none. People in the spotlight choose us. They know we are more than just dependable.
We are not an agency. We do not hire-in other disco or karaoke companies to do the job. We are a wholly owned private company. Everything we use (equipment wise) is owned by us. Our equipment is second to none – kept in above average condition, there is no need for anyone to feel embarrassed or avoid taking photographs near our kit!
All our light shows include our standard front light box, which has a pleasant and colourful appeal. All shows can have additional lighting effects added up to full road show level.
We have hi-fi quality sound systems from our compact full range speakers to Bose pa systems (recognised as an industry standard in broadcasting circles) as used in our roadshow systems.
All our mixers and amplifiers are made by the world leaders in their field – reliability is not an issue.

What is a road show? We think the word conjures up anything from a coffee promotion at Asda to a Radio 1 outside broadcast in the summer. However with us it simply means an extra large mobile disco with an increased light show, see below for full details.
