"Thank you so much for playing for us at the party. You did a wonderful job and you were very professional. When we are in need of a DJ we will be giving you a call. I appreciated that when there were requests made you also made sure it was ok with us before playing that song if you felt we would not want that played. You were also on time and I appreciate that".

DJ Bruce was awesome! He was extremely professional and played every song exactly as we wanted it! Our dance floor was packed the whole entire night, and our guests were raving about how much fun they had dancing. Pricing was very reasonable. We would highly recommend First Dance Entertainment again and again!

Our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all accompanied by music from First Dance Entertainment. It was so easy to work with the DJ before and during our event, and everything went very smoothly during our big day! Despite pleading from one of our guests, our do not play music list was honored :)
Thank you so much!

Both gentlemen were very understanding what we were looking for. Any questions that we may have had, all I had to do was shoot them an email and they replied very quickly. They were very understanding that we did not want any music with lots of cussing due to older people and children being at our reception. Any changes that were made during the reception was not a problem for them. I think it was helpful to them with making a list of songs for them to mix up to keep the party going. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for an affordable, caring, helpful, and compassionate DJ services to get in touch with them. They listen to what the couple want and don't want 🎵 🎵 🎵 🎵 🎵 🎵

We booked First Dance Entertainment for our wedding and we were glad we did! They were at a very reasonable price and gave us exactly what we wanted. Our DJ, Adam was awesome at communicating and following up right before the wedding. He was also available to talk whenever I needed to go over things. He kept to the music we wanted/listed and had the floor going all night! We are so happy to have booked with First Dance! Thanks for help making our day special!

DJ Bruce was EXCELLENT on our wedding day. The music I requested for the ceremony wasn’t the easiest but he sure got it together for us! And he played EVERY other song that we requested from the introductions, to dinner, and of course the dancing! We had an America and Costa Rican wedding he did an great job of playing both American music AND Hispanic music!
He even had a screen with our pictures playing during the reception for our guest to view.
I would recommend First Dance Entertainment and DJ Bruce to anyone!

Adam was a fantastic DJ for my daughter's wedding! He kept everyone on the dance floor with a wonderful mix of music for a wide array of guests (19 to 80 year olds!) Dinner music allowed for conversation. He was respectful of the bride's wishes and was not intrusive - and yet kept us on schedule. He was flexible and accomodating. Exceptionally easy to work with! He nailed it for Meg's wedding! !!!!

Our neighborhood social committee has been using First Dance for at least 2-3 years. We have had a great time at all of our parties! Adam was a pleasure to work with, touched base with us frequently prior to the event, was prompt and played a great set of music that fit our atmosphere and audience. He went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. They are already on the books for next year's events!

First Dance DJ's was a Life Saver. Bruce Wayne provided DJ services and a photo video show for my daughter's wedding in January 2017. Bruce did a great job at a wonderful price in a short amount of time. We had hired another DJ who cancelled 5 weeks before my daughter's wedding. I contacted first Dance DJ's and spoke with Bruce. Bruce listened to my concerns and was able to provide the services that the other DJ was supposed to and at a better price than the original DJ.
We met with Bruce discussed our needs and he provided the music for the ceremony as well as the reception and he uploaded our photos and provided a flat screen TV at the reception which showed the picture slide show all evening.
I would recommend First Dance DJ's to anyone looking for music services for their event. Bruce is prompt, professional and reasonably priced. Thank you First Dance DJ's for helping to make my daughter's Winter Wedding Spectacular.

I hired First Dance Entertainment for my sorority formal and it was amazing. Bruce was extremely easy to work with and he answered questions before I even remembered to ask them.

Bruce was so easy to work with. I am a meeting planner and was on travel a lot prior to the wedding but he was very patient in getting the details. I know he took time to read my timeline and instructions and it worked out great! He even took the time to meet with us face to face prior to the event. Thank you for being a part of our special day. Will definitely recommend you to my colleagues and friends that are looking for a DJ. To those that are reading this review, Bruce is totally worth it :)

Everything went great. Met with us twice before the event. Had all the music we asked and wanted. Approved any song requests with us before playing them. Just recommend turning down music before talking so everyone can hear announcements better. We had a great time and would have you in the future when needed. We loved that you work on the price with us since we were on a very tight budget. We look forward to working with you again one day.
"What can I say...I wanted a step above an ipod and got the entire package! We all had a fantastic time at the reception on March 14, 2015. Adam arrived early, worked with our venue, as well as key people holding the event together while we (bride and groom) were getting ready. Had my daughter and everyone else dancing all night long to a variety of different styles of music!!!"
Exactly what we wanted! :)

"I could not have been any happier with this service. First Dance went above and beyond. He kept everything on time, he is very organized, he is professional, very punctual, and wonderful to work with. Adam could not have been any better! He played everything we wanted (which was quite a variety), music was of great quality and to be honest he went above and beyond. He even went to check out the venue on his own to see the space. His transitions were beautiful! He did amazing. I truly can not say enough about how wonderful he was!"

"The DJ played music from the start to the finish and was receptive to requests. Everything ran smoothly and he stayed to the time schedule of events. The job was at the Waterford at Fair Oaks on April 24, 2015. Our DJ Bruce met prior to the event and the guests loved being able to request songs that I sent to him before the event as well. There were some complaints about not knowing the music or not playing songs that were requested on the excel sheet / getting stuck in one genre for a little too long, but he quickly changed if someone asked".

"First Dance was great to work with. Very responsive. I had to reschedule my event due to a snow storm and Adam was very accommodating. He did a wonderful job at the Birthday party, and played great music. He also did a fantastic job at switching songs if some people stopped dancing. Would recommend them."

Would definitely recommend him, and have."

Wow, what can I say!!!!! We hired First Dance to DJ my sons wedding on Sept 12th. From the first day we met DJ Bruce we knew he was the right person for the wedding. He is super nice, was helpful picking out music, had answers to all of our questions and most importantly he knows his business. The day of the wedding he was prompt in setting up. His lighting and effects were an extra nice touch. The music flowed all night and he even got on dance floor and danced with the guests. All I can say is, Don't hesitate to hire DJ Bruce from First Dance DJs for your special event. You will be pleased with the whole experience!!!! Thanks guys!

What can I say other than wow! Being new to the whole idea of a wedding we didn't realize a DJ is one of the first things that should be booked. We were lucky to have found First Dance Entertainment as we were provided an amazing wedding experience. I would have no problem using them again or referring them to anyone else looking for the type of services they provide. If 6 stars were an option I would select all 6 it was that great of an experience.

He even went out of his way to get people on the floor to dance. DJ Bruce made my husband's 50th surprise party great fun. All the guest gave very positive feedback to us and loved his song selections, that were so in tune with my husband's taste. Thanks so much!
Only suggestion for improvement: on line dances that run long, give at least one song break in between so we can catch our breath! Lol"
