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!

Rodney was the best DJ EVER!! I got so many compliments on him after the wedding. He played a great mix of music and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. I had so many different requests leading up to the big day, but he was understanding and accommodating to all of them. He easily adapted to the atmosphere of the night and eased into dances/introductions with no effort at all. I would absolutely recommend him for any couple looking for a DJ for their wedding. He was easily accessible and helped to make the night fun and flow seamlessly from beginning to end.

I'm absolutely speechless with the amazingly personable person that Rodney was towards my now husband and I. We knew right away that we wanted Rodney to be apart of making our day special, and I literally spent most of my night on the dance floor because he delivered everything and more of what I asked for and keeping the crowd moving. From the very start he worked with us with our financial situation, since we were paying for our own wedding which wasn't easy and having someone with that understanding and patience with an indecisive bride on top of that is a reason I'll never forget how special he made my BIG day!!

He was always very professional and willing to lend a hand, as well as full of suggestions, and always had fun ideas to make you day more custom to your individualize style. Thank you Rodney, for sharing in making my wedding as special as I always imagined.

Randy was extremely helpful, professional, punctual and very quick to respond. He was overly prepared to perform all our requests at our wedding. He even audio recorded how to pronounce wedding party names for my review so he didn't offend anyone by mispronouncing their name. At the wedding my husband had a last minute song request, Randy didn't have it in his file so he went out of the way to look it up on his phone to be able to play it for my husband. We loved Randy the DJ with First Choice!!

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.
