My name is James. I am the owner of First Choice DJs, the number one DJ service covering the Outer Sydney region!

First Choice DJs is a premium mobile DJ business providing quality DJs for all occasions including weddings, engagements, anniversaries, school discos, formals, birthday parties, and corporate functions!

We cover everywhere from North Sydney to Lithgow, including the Hills District, the Hawkesbury Region, Penrith, and the Blue Mountains. We also cover Parramatta, the Inner-West, Campbelltown, and Wollongong.

If you are having a wedding, please check out our wedding website which has more wedding-specific information.

DJs & Packages

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.

Currently, we have a team of 6 tried and tested DJs performing through this company. We are of varying ages with experience levels ranging from 7 years all the way up to 30 years!

Personally, I have approximately 24 years of DJ experience. I began 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.

Some of my career highlights since then include MC’ing my first wedding at age 22, earning an Advanced Diploma in Sound Production (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).

For private functions, we always do our best to match an appropriately aged DJ to each function we book. Our 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 good 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 for the dance floor!

When you book with us, we 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. We also have song suggestion lists we can provide which feature the best party songs from each decade and genre in case you need help with your choices.

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.)

"James was super attentive and professional and very sweet to deal with. Matt and I and our guests had such a good time on the dance floor thanks to James and his tracks!

We loved that James could also predict the vibe at certain times and played certain types of music depending on the mood.

We are so grateful we had you a part of our day! Thank you for your efforts. Highly recommend First Choice DJs and James!"

"James was so fantastic!!! He was our wedding DJ and had everyone out of their seats and on the dance floor. Before the wedding, he had a detailed form which really helped with knowing what we were looking for with our wedding. James' time management on the night was great.

"Damien and I would like to say really MASSIVE thank you to Taylor !! He was absolutely amazing at our wedding and we had the most amazing time. He was so accommodating with all of our very impromptu requests for 90s and 00s music and all our guests had so much fun!

All my family commented on what a lovely guy he is and the fact that he went out of his way to help with things that he really didn't need to do.

He went above and beyond, and we would highly recommend him and your company!!

Thank you both so much for all your help along the way and for making our wedding easy and amazing!!"

"Hi James, I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your efforts and professionalism on Saturday night at our wedding. Harry really appreciated your MC guidance and said: “Dude, James is a boss"! Haha, the dance floor was pumping and everyone has kept saying how good the music was, it truly made the night and heaps of people were saying that they had never been to a wedding where no one was sitting down and everyone was dancing.

"Nikita was the DJ for my engagement party and did such a fantastic job! Both Nikita and James were very professional to deal with prior to the event. On the night, Nikita was very friendly and read the crowd well. Played the right music to allow people to chat and mingle at the start and knew when it was time to play music to get everybody up on the dance floor! Would happily recommend!"

"James is amazing. I had a lot of trouble trying to find a DJ that I liked and that would actually help me. James answered all my questions, helped me pick music, and even helped with the forms. He was amazing on the night and had a massive range of music. Every single person at my wedding said the music range was amazing."

I had my “Say Goodbye to the Roaring 20’s”, 30th birthday party on Saturday night! Taylor had a good range of 20’s playing before we moved into today’s music after dinner (which is what I asked for).

Taylor had most of us, (those who wanted to dance), up and dancing. Taylor even came dressed in 1920’s themed clothing! A lot of my guests were commenting on how good Taylor was, throughout the night.

If I had another party, I wouldn’t think twice about going with First Choice DJs again, nor would I look for anywhere else. I highly recommend First Choice DJs.

"We had David as the DJ for our 10 Year Vow Renewal. He was prompt and followed all our requests, to songs that shouldn't be played down to the last song for the night.

He was very accommodating to guest song requests and really set a fabulous atmosphere. We wanted to party and dance for our renewal and we definitely did!

James was lovely to deal with, communicated very well and efficiently. We would hire them again for our next event and highly recommend them."
