‘Flock of female DJs’ joins Kelly as her Digital Pocahontas brand goes from strength to strength





As her alter ego Digital Pocahontas, Kelly Rose is well known for her barn-storming DJ sessions at festivals such as Standon Calling and for hosting 80s party nights.

But there’s more to the “brand” than meets the eye. The last 12 months has seen an expansion of the company, with more DJs brought in and the training of a “flock of female DJs” to help deliver the tunes at children’s parties, schools and events in the South East.

Kelly also has an enhanced DBS for children’s DJ lessons and is proud to report that some have gone on to host their own parties.

She said she’s been working with most of the primary and secondary schools in Bishop’s Stortford, Sawbridgeworth, Stansted, Great Dunmow, Takeley, Saffron Walden and beyond and she still “absolutely loves it”.

Another highlight was working for financial giant Coupa when she DJed for more than 1,000 delegates at the ExCeL Centre in London’s Docklands.

She also has a weekly radio show on dance music station Cyndicut every Tuesday which is an extension of her digital discos that she broadcast during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A busy mum, trying to ensure her son Stanley revises for his GCSE exams, Kelly still finds time to collaborate with Bishop’s Stortford venue Home & Eat for a number of events, including an 80s night on June 28 with the Back To The 80s band. She’s also teaming up with West Essex disability Accuro for a family day rave on June 2.

But the bread and butter of her work still thrills her – and a text message from a mum made her realise how she makes a difference.

The mum wrote: “You DJed at my daughter’s leavers’ party and her 10th birthday. Made me think how often you must be there for milestone moments.”

Kelly said: “This got me. It really made me think about what I’m creating – special memories! And for this I’m so very grateful.”
