With one of the largest mobile discos in Exeter, The Rising Sun Roadshow (Disco and Karaoke) owes its success to listening to it's audience.

The proprietor Melvyn Franklin started out doing discos on a voluntary basis for The Knight Club, a local youth club, back in 1983 and decided to 'go it alone' in 1990. He purchased a mobile disco and began working in pubs and clubs but mainly received bookings for private parties such as Weddings and Birthday Parties.

Working in the East and South Devon area, Melvyn has built up a reputation as a professional DJ.

The Rising Sun Roadshow prides itself on playing the right type of music for each audience and the ability to tailor the size and content of the set according to the requirements of each engagement.

The Rising Sun Roadshow also appreciates the importance of reliability. Melvyn does not double book and you will not be let down at the last minute. All bookings are confirmed in writing and no deposit is required.

The Rising Sun Roadshow will travel to any location and is available for booking seven nights a week and Melvyn is also available to discuss your requirements during the day.
