1st Choice Customized DJ Services (Formerly Brian Pate Entertainment) was ranked as the #1 wedding DJ company in Raleigh and the #1 wedding DJ company in North Carolina for the second year in a row in May of 2013. In addition, they were ranked #7 wedding DJ company in the United States in 2013 and #9 in 2012.

Our attention to detail in pairing you with the right DJ will help make your event one that is truly a once in a lifetime experience. Many times when you call a DJ, you only have one choice. Here at 1st Choice Customized DJ Services, we look at the different personalities of the DJs and let you choose who you feel most comfortable with.

Each of our DJs have been performing for many years and your DJ will bring that experience to the table to help make your wedding special.

We provide services for wedding receptions including the sound system, wireless microphone and dance floor lighting if desired. In addition, we can provide up-lighting to add ambiance to the room, or a photo booth to keep your guests laughing all night long.

If you need sound for the ceremony, we can provide that too. Our experts can provide you with a basic sound system with CD/Ipod/computer player to provide music for your ceremony. If you have a string quartet or soloist, we can also provide a sound board to enhance their performance. In addition, with either of these options, we can provide a separate feed to your videographer so that you don't miss any of the details.

We provide services in North and South Carolina and Virginia so call today to get started with your planning for the ultimate wedding experience!

I highly recommend Rodney for DJ and lighting services. Throughout the process he was always easy to communicate and very personable. He set up the sound for our outdoor ceremony as well as our indoor reception. We had lots of requests for music and Rodney accepted them graciously. He even said he enjoys when couples get involved in the process. He arrived many hours prior to our event and had everything completely ready to go on time. He did a fantastic job.

Rodney Holmes was absolutely amazing! We used him for both our cocktail hour and reception. He showed up at the venue at 1pm to set up for the 6:30 cocktail hour! He was so sweet too. He helped my mother set up and hang up items while he was there. My husband and I have received nothing but praise about how awesome the music at our wedding was. People stayed on the dance floor from the time dinner ended until we kicked them out. Even the older people at our wedding were up dancing! He played such a great mix of oldies and new music to keep the entire crowd entertained. He was awesome!

Rodney, was excellent. Our entire group of family and friends had a great time. We even starting dancing during the dinner music, then all through the night. A D.J. can break or make a wedding and Rodney did everything and more for the best wedding ever.

Thank you to 1st Choice DJ's for making our Wedding Day perfect. Rodney met with us a few times in person to go over our playlists, special dances, etc. His attire at the Wedding was very professional and he kept the dancefloor full the entire night. I have already recommended them to a few my girlfriends getting married as well.

Rodney was absolutely phenomenal. We literally had wedding crashers (from another wedding) because our party was having so much more fun and our music was amazing. Rodney was great to work with before and during the wedding, he was incredibly responsive to email, music requests and questions. I would recommend him to anyone who has a vision for the kind of party and music they want at their celebration and wants it handled masterfully.

I can't say enough great things about Rodney and his DJ services for our wedding. His communication prior to our wedding day was amazing as we changed so many details and added so much to his work load and he was great throughout it. I didn't have to ask him again and again to make sure he had the little details right, it all came out perfect. We had an outdoor wedding setup and 20 minutes before the ceremony it rained and due to his great planning, he was able to move all the equipment effortlessly into the backup venue on the property and it worked out better. I HIGHLY recommend working with Rodney as he will be the least stressful vendor you'll work with for your event.
