Hi.

I’m Bruce Harrison and I have been a wedding DJ and MC in Melbourne since early 2002.

I got my start at being a Wedding DJ by replying to an ad in the MX which said that I could get ‘paid to party’ and, while there’s a lot more to it than that, I took my first job – a 21st - a few weeks later having absolutely no idea what I was doing except pressing a button which played a song.

The following weekend, I was the DJ & MC at a wedding. I’d never even been to a wedding before.

It was a complete train wreck. A disaster in every way. In fact, I probably still have people who want  to kill me from that wedding.

 But I stuck at it and, yeah, I got better at it.

I was with that DJ company for three years.

When I left I was the office manager and responsible for recruiting and training new wedding DJs.

But I missed the ‘one on one’ aspect… I hated not being able to commit to a couple who I met.

So, when I started my business, I never wanted a ‘team’ of DJs.

I truly believe in the value of working with someone who will be there on one of the most important days of your lives.

So there is no ‘we’ or ‘us’. It’s just me.

Secondly - I won’t get in the way of your professional photographer on your wedding day trying to get a shot of you both at an important moment.

I also won’t bring a photo booth along to your wedding.

There’s other people who you can pay to do all that stuff. People who will do the job a lot better than me because that’s their job.

I prefer to be exceptionally awesome at entertaining you and your guests and making everyone’s feet sore the next day.

I perform at many multi-cultural weddings and my music library includes pretty much everything from everywhere.

As a DJ, I play background music at a level where people don’t have to yell and dancefloor music that will keep your guests on the dancefloor until the last song of the night.

As an MC, my style is friendly, inclusive, informative and natural and I don’t sound like one of The Wiggles.

As your wedding entertainment professional, I will work with you both on creating something that is truly special, unique and reflects your personality, your dreams and your story.

Thanks so much for reading - please get in touch if you would like to know more - I'd love to hear from you...

Questions and Answers

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What is your DJ experience?

In over 15 years I have provided entertainment for weddings, engagements, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th birthday parties, school formals, corporate functions, bar-mitzvahs, bat-mitzvahs and Christmas parties.

In May 2012, I received the Australian Bridal Industry Academy award for Best DJ – Victoria.

In 2013, I won the  Australian Bridal Industry Academy award for Best MC – Victoria and was runner-up for Best DJ.

2014 I again received the Best DJ Award and was runner-up for MC.

I am an accredited member of The DJ Alliance Of Australia.

Do you also provide MC only services?

Absolutely! My MC’ing style is friendly, informative and welcoming.
And no, I don’t sound like one of The Wiggles…

Are you licensed and insured?

I have Public Liability Insurance which covers me for claims up to 20 million dollars in the case of accidental damage or injury.

I am licensed with the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) which allows the performance of copyrighted sound recordings by licensed DJs. My licence number is: 329632.
It is illegal for any DJ to play music in public in Australia without a PPCA licence.

How much?

Please contact me to arrange for a ‘no-strings attached’ meeting to discuss your ideas and requirements at your home or workplace.
Weekday evenings are preferred, though weekends during the day can be arranged in most cases.

What time will you arrive at my event?

Arrival at the venue is approximately 2 hours prior to the start of your event. This allows me to set up my equipment and perform a light & sound check to make sure that everything is 101% perfect before the arrival of you and your guests.

Bruce was amazing from start to finish. Always punctual for our meetings at our house and the venue and always easy to deal with. He was happy to work with us on our eclectic music tastes and get the songs we wanted. The night ran without a hitch and he did a fantastic job being the MC with lots of wonderful words and kept it all on time and running smoothly as he works extremely well with Leonda By The Yarra's staff and venue. The music was great and everyone had a great time with plenty of dancing. Thanks Bruce for such a great night and being part of our special day!!!

I told Bruce that all I wanted was music to fill the dance floor and he did not disappoint. The amount of comments I got for how awesome the music was was just amazing. Will definitely use Bruce again in the future.

We used Bruce both as a DJ and MC and he was an absolute pleasure to work with and provided such a warm and personable service. Not only did he ensure that our reception ran smoothly and to time, he also had the dance floor packed all night! We’ve had so many compliments about Bruce’s work on the night from guests. Bruce also provided so much valuable advice in the lead up to the wedding.

We loved Bruce!! He is probably the most chilled out DJ/MC we had!! He certainly kept us at ease days leading up to the wedding. Thanks for keeping our crowd going!! Ally & Adrian

We asked Bruce to DJ our wedding and to assist our friend who was our MC. Bruce was great to deal with from the start, had a great sense of humour, and didn't seem to mind coming to our house for meetings. He was very organised but wasn't stressed if we hadn't figured out what song we wanted played when, and he also offered suggestions not just for songs, but how to run the night so that we could maximise our time having fun. He also recommended our celebrant, Maree Livy, who was amazing as well. A great duo to have on the day.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Bruce with us on our wedding day. We really enjoyed Bruce’s song choices and the warm atmosphere he created for our guests and for us. Thanks Bruce!

Bruce was absolutely amazing to work with and we had the best night partying with him. He read the room so well and always people up dancing

We cannot thank Bruce enough for not only his services on the day of the wedding, but his time and effort throughout the planning process. Bruce was super attentive and organised throughout the lead up to the wedding, putting us at ease and allowing for a smooth day. On the day, we didn't have to worry about anything, as Bruce took care of the run sheet and ensured that the atmosphere in the room was incredible for the entire evening.

Bruce is an absolute legend. He is not just a DJ and MC but an awesome human being who went above and beyond for our wedding. We received a lot of positive feedback from guests about how great he was at engaging the room and creating such a positive vibe. So happy we went with him! Highly recommend Bruce!

Bruce is a dream! Bruce was both our MC & DJ and gave us such a thrilling reception and kept the guests engaged throughout. If you want the best in the business, chat to Bruce!

Bruce did a phenomenal job translating our likes and dislikes onto the dance floor. Not one person was sitting down when the music started. He really knows how to get people up and dancing.

31 Mar 2018

It was such a pleasure to have Bruce be part of our wedding. From the moment we started planning our wedding until the very end, Bruce was always focused and passionate to help us create the beautiful day we envisioned. Best day ever big thanks to Bruce!

8 Feb 2018

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING DJ! incredibly helpful, the best wedding vendor anyone could ask for! Bruce went out of his way to make our wedding a special day and even kindly coached my brother to be the MC. Very, very friendly and brought life to the wedding. Would not hesitate to recommend!!

20 Jan 2018

We cant thank bruce enough for what he did for us. He was down to earth and we felt so comfortable being around him. He got what we wanted and he delivered. He made the night extra fun and made our quests feel at ease.

20 Jan 2018

Bruce was always so relaxed, accommodating and professional. Nothing was ever too much trouble, even when we kept playing with the run sheet. He was always prompt with communication and was always happy for us to bounce ideas off of. We definitely had someone with a great personality too!
