First Choice DJs is a reputable company that DJs love to work for. Only the most passionate and talented DJs make the cut and only those who are able to create happy customer experiences consistently continue to work for us long-term.
First Choice DJs began in Sydney in 2014. In July, 2022 we expanded to also cover Perth, Mandurah and Southwest WA.
I (James) began my DJ career in 1996 (at age 14) and went full-time at age 20, after performing to 5000 people at the Big Thing Youth Festival in 2002 and graduating with honours from the United DJs Mixing School in Sydney shortly after.
Fast forward to today, I now have over 25 years experience in the music industry, making me one of the most experienced mobile DJs in the country!
Some of my career highlights include doing my first paid gig at age 14, starting my first DJ company at age 20, MC’ing my first wedding at age 22, earning an Advanced Diploma in Sound Production in 2012, mixing the soundtrack for the Ekka Nights Fireworks Extravaganza in Brisbane (2017) and being the headlining DJ for the World Championship Polo Tournament in Sydney (2017).
I also have over a decade of experience in live sound (mixing bands and theatre productions), over a decade experience in studio recording and mixing and over 5 years experience as a professional stage actor, performing both in Australia and overseas.
I DJ a lot of First Choice DJs functions myself and am also constantly on the search for passionate, talented and competent DJs to add to our ever-growing team.
For private functions, I always do my best to match an appropriately aged DJ to each function we book. My DJs are some of the most experienced around for their respective age brackets, so no matter what kind of event you are having, you will be in good hands to have a great time!
Our packages vary slightly between each of our DJs, but they always take care of all your audio and lighting needs. We provide awesome sounding speakers (JBL, FBT, RCA, and Behringer), a quality microphone for speeches, approximately 50,000 songs to choose from (all styles and genres including the latest top 40) and a great range of modern, multi-coloured disco lights to bring your dance floor to life!
When you book with us, I will provide you with a DJ form that you can fill out to provide all the details for your function including what kind of music you would like. You also get full access to our song suggestion lists which feature the best party songs from each decade and genre in case you need some inspiration.
Requests are always welcome on the night. If you have your own unique, hard to get music that you would like to bring along, our DJs also have the ability to play any music you provide as well. (If you think you might like to do this please let us know in advance so we can discuss the best ways to provide music.)
