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...
