Tomás DJ's from a digital console attached to his laptop - this can either attach to a DJ mixer or 2x DIs.
He also needs a mic (and a secondary mic on nights when he is joined by transvestite hype man Ayden Doherty). The PA should be able to hit nightclub levels of volume.
Helpful But Not Essential Stuff:
If there is a projector on-site, Tomás will use that instead of (or sometimes in addition to) his own. He can send a VGA or HDMI output – this cable should run to the stage.
Whatever disco lighting or lazers or smoke machines or stupid ideas you have are very welcome.

Crap Music Rave Party is a lot of fun and tends to make everyone involved a decent bit of coin, which is lovely. It plays either as a late night show (3 hours) or as an all-night show (5-7 hours). It is currently accepting bookings for festivals and club performances. To discuss how it may fit into your programming, please contact Tomás directly at captain [ at ] tomasford.com .
Tomás Ford is the worst DJ in the world. The Australian partystarter is notorious for his crates of records that nobody would ever like. Hell, he doesn’t like it, but at his Crap Music Rave Party, he plays nothing but the worst songs people can think of. Then he hypes up the dancefloor with his high energy antics, ridiculous video projections and DIY disco lighting.
It’s the dumbest, most successful concept he’s ever had. It’s been a sold out smash at Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Rottofest, Fringe World and an equally massive smash in clubs in Perth, Prague, Melbourne, Sydney, Hobart and Karratha.
Think Dannii Minogue, “soulful” yacht rock, your Dad’s road trip jamz, happy hardcore, Eurovision nightmares, Justin Bieber, glowsticks, yacht rock smoothness, white-boy reggae, trance remixes of Enrique Iglesias, skate park dubstep, 80’s movie themes, breakdance battles, your aunty’s disco collection, riotous hair metal, mouldy new jack swing records, unnameable boy bands, hands in the air, anything could happen…
Grab a massive group of friends, think of a horrible song, and get ready to dance!
