A passion for hiring
Party Pro is a hire / rental agency with a passion for people. We are rewarded to see smiles on faces, laughter and people enjoying themselves.
Founder Stephen Galleid started Party Pro as an equipment hiring agency in 1982 and branched out into other areas through his love of music.
He began to play music as DJ Stevie G and came into contact with other performers, many of whom were struggling to find gigs.
Stephen started finding gigs for them and the Agency suddenly took a huge step forward and gained momentum branching out into inflatables and then rides and other areas. Party Pro is now a full-blown fun hire & equipment hire / rentals & entertainment agency.
Simultaneously, DJ Stevie G was building a reputation as a fine DJ, refining his skill. amassing a music database second to none and adding karaoke to his repertoire.
