First Choice DJs and Entertainment was created in 1983, to provide people with a variety of music genre. There are two important reasons why I started this business:



The first reason is that whenever, my family or friend’s hosted parties and a DJ would perform, we would request Latin/Spanish music to listen or dance too, and the DJ’s would only have two choices; La Bamba or Tequila as an option.



The second, but maybe the most important reason was honesty! I can say to this day, that I have not had one party that I have not full filed my responsibilities. There are vendors out there that take advantage of clients and swap DJs depending on the price that other clients pay. In fact, I had a personal negative experience on my wedding with a vendor, a photographer in my case. From that day onward, I promised myself to always keep my word and always fulfill my clients wishes to make there special day unforgettable.



Two of many powerful factors that have kept me in business, and have extended my clientele by word of mouth; this is the only form of advertisement that I have ever needed. I will work with you to create a customized itinerary/time-line of what events you would like to happen and it what order. I then can manage the reception, remove those details, stress, and place them on me to ensure your desires come true.



Wow! Over 28 years doing something, I love and being able to share, it with so many people has brought a special fulfillment in my life!



Sincerely,



Marcel Gonzalez (Owner and DJ)

I came across First Choice Dj when attending a wedding in September. He was very processional and had the crowd engaged through out the night. He had a variety of music which I loved. We just used him for our annual Christmas party at work and everyone loved him! Definitely would recommend him to others.

We just had our wedding a couple of weeks ago, and Marcel and his team were so amazing! Music was important to us and we wanted people to dance all night, so after meeting with Marcel for the first time, we knew we had found our guy. After chatting about our musical likes/dislikes, he was able to walk us through how our day would go - not only musically, but he also really takes the time to go through a real timeline with you, which is immensely helpful. The day of our wedding, the dance floor was packed all night - Marcel was awesome at reading what our family/friends were loving to keep the party going. Highly recommend!

FirstChoice DJs not only provided the best dancing music for my daughter's Sweet 16, but Marcel emceed the entire event and he does it in a way that makes you feel you like you've known him for years! Beyond professional and is gives your night such special attention. From the very beginning, they find out all your likes and dislikes and provide you with a special night of your favorite songs. They also provide uplighting and video screens if your choose that made the room look extremely lavish. They also provided us with our daughter's video montage which was set to the music of our choice. Spectacular work. The video was so beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend FirstChoice Dj's and will definitely use them again for any future events!

Our wedding photographer referred us to First Choice Djs and we could not be any more grateful!!! From beggining to end we had an amazing experience!

Marcel even brought us water to our table, threw in extra little Disney songs as a surprise to us and even wrote out an entire itinerary for the whole evening! You cannot go wrong with Marcel and his assistant, they are for sure the best Dj duo around! We are still receiving compliments on how perfect our night was planned out! Thank you thank you First Choice Djs for the party of the year! You sure helped make our fairytale a reality! <3 PS: Their prices are beyond reasonable!!! Huge plus! Xoxo, The Herreras ;)

I wanted to make sure I left a review for this amazing team who were our wedding DJ in August. My husband and I first experienced First Choice DJs and Entertainment’s music at our friend’s wedding. We loved the music and vibe the whole night that we knew we would get them once it was our turn to get married. When the time finally came, we contacted Marcel, who is also the MC, to schedule a meeting. After some questions from Marcel, he knew exactly what to play for us. We wanted English and Spanish music and he had a great mix of both. He also helped us with the reception timeline, which was so helpful because we had no idea what we had to do. The day of the wedding, Marcel introduced us for the reception and kept us on schedule the entire night, which was very helpful. Marcel and his team did such a great job with the music! Our guests danced all night long, even those who don’t like to dance. We love this DJ so much, that we recommended him to everyone and even had some of our engaged friends book him for their wedding. Book early because everyone wants to book them as soon as they meet with Marcel. I definitely recommend First Choice DJs and Entertainment!

Let me start by saying that I was extremely happy with the way Marcel conducted my wedding ceremony. Everything went so well, I want to get married again and re-live the day over and over. He did a great job!!!. Everyone is still talking about my wedding. Not only was it beautiful, but everyone had a good time and that is what I wanted. You can be sure if I hear about anyone needing a DJ, he is our MAN! I can not think of anything to say to you except....KEEP UP THE G-O-O-D WORK.

Marcel did an excellent job at my wedding it was perfect because of you and partner. The music was so good. We had no complaints from our wedding party and guests they loved it. In fact, I have given his number to a couple of people. His services were great, and what I loved the most is that he made Alex and I feel so secure that we did not even worry about anything because he handled everything. I cannot wait until I see him again at an event and enjoy the way he reads the crowd and all the dance music that he plays. Thanks to the brides that referred his services. Love the, Diaz family

Marcel (FirstChoiceDjs) did an outstanding job at our wedding. Shonna and I were completely happy with how he handled the ceremony and the reception. Everything worked out great. His equipment sounded excellent, the setup was timely, performances and musical selection were absolutely in line with our taste level as well as that of our guests', and your professionalism in dealing with us as well as accommodating for last minute requests was flawless and of the highest caliber. I was very happy to have followed our event planners recommendation as he exceeded our expectations. I felt he was present and ready and guided the flow and timing of key moments (introduction, speeches, first dance, father/daughter dance, cake cutting, etc...) perfectly. Everything flowed from one moment into the other seamlessly. Many of our guests absolutely loved his musical selection. The 80s dance stuff was a huge hit. The classical renditions of contemporary pop hits were also a great touch. He brought everyone to the dance floor early on. People kept dancing and he kept the momentum of the festivities going until the end. I appreciate the effort and care he puts into his craft. Whatever it was we wanted to have happen at our wedding - that sense of joyful celebration - was achieved in great part thanks to his handling of the festivities. He exercised just the right level of encouragement and restraint for the crowd we had. I would not hesitate to make him our first recommendation to anyone looking for a great DJ for any event.

I have hired Marcel on a couple of events that I have had before and each time went off without a problem. Marcel does the extra stuff that just comes out of his heart. I had him DJ at my wedding in Sept 07 and he just took care of each tiny detail and stayed calm through the whole thing, he took pictures for people who couldnt, escorted people where to go at the hall talked to everyone and took the time to see if they needed any assistance that he could be of help and also played music at the same time and took care of requests at that very moment. It touched my heart when I seen him pushing my father who is in a wheel chair to the mens room. Im sorry I have never met any type of DJ to do the kinds of things I just mentioned, its those things that will always make me hire Marcel to do another and another event for me in the future. He is the most professional person I have had to pleasure to work with. I HIGHLY recommend his company to anyone who is looking to get the quality, efficency, professionalizm work they have paid for. Thank you again Marcel for everything - Sorry for my spelling......... Mandy Lopez

Marcel, Honestly, there are absolutely no complaints about your services that day. You and your partner did such an excellent job. As the bride, I can state that I was at ease with having you by my side. Your prompt attention made my day so much more relaxed. I remember that there was not one minute you were not there to make sure that I was ok; from me needed a drink to passing out the favors. I could have not asked for a better DJ/coordinator. Till this day our family and friends have told us that our DJ service was excellent, and that our wedding was so much fun because of the music selection. Hearing those comments has made my Husband and I so happy; just knowing that our wedding has not been forgotten makes us realize that we had a great wedding. I don't know about other couples, but we believe that is important, because most of the time people mention that a wedding is boring and they were just sitting there. Not for our wedding!!! Thanks to Marcel everyone was on the dance floor! I also want to mention that your professionalism on the microphone was excellent as well. My husband and I could have not been happier with your work; you are worth every penny. If there are any comments on our part, is just to keep up the great work. We will definitely be recommended your services to friends and family for future events. As a matter of fact, we can't wait till our 10 year anniversary, expect a call soon!!!! Thanks again and much success with your DJ business. Jessica and Beto Miranda

We just booked Marcel for our August wedding. Marcel is just awsome! He truely loves this and is very professional about the product he provides. Marcel was very flexible when meeting my Fiance and I and ran through an outline durring our consultation and sampled and mixed some music right there in the consult. Kind of a preview and it was wonderful. With Marcel you truely can't go wrong. With first Choice DJ's you know what you're getting, Marcel and his assistant, music, lights and all the bells and wistles for a flat rate. None of this nickle and diming business or choosing from package A, B C or otherwise. What you see is what you get and with Marcel you get way more than your moneys worth!

If it wasn't for marcel with first choice DJ my wedding would have been nightmare! He made sure people were announced and the ceremony and reception flowed without a hitch due to his organization and getting my guests to each place they were supposed to be. I have even had two friends that have attended the wedding ask for his information for their weddings. I had no idea what songs I wanted but I knew the kind of atmosphere I wanted, thank god for Marcel because when we met with him he put together a song list that was amazing. I also made many changes up to the last minute about the music for the ceremony and not only did he have it all together he actually had to remind me of my choices. So I would hire him and his crew again and again. They were flawless, professional and one of the best hiring decisions I made for my wedding.

On our wedding day, just over two months ago, things could have taken a turn for the worse when our wedding coordinator was suddenly nowhere to be found. However, Marcel effortlessly and smoothly took control of the reception. He made sure everything moved along gracefully, but at the same time he was very low-key and unobtrusive every time he had the microphone. Overall, he plays exactly the music you ask him to, he has a great understanding of music, and he is a very gracious and low-key mc who will keep the reception flowing smoothly, but at the same time doesn't make his presence known any more than it needs to be. Jamianne and I just want to give a huge thanks to Marcel and First Choice DJ's. We can't say enough good things. Thanks! Sincerely, Karl and Jamianne Verkade

First Choice DJ's was great to work with and provided excellent service. They arrived on time, were prompt at replying to my emails during the planning phase, and played all the requested music that we provided to them. We will definately refer them to anyone that is getting married or looking for DJ services. Thanks Marcel!!! Lori

Marcel was very easy to get along with. He was very good at following up any questions I had. Prior to the wedding I had emailed a list of song requests that my guest had. I made sure he had all the songs requested and he assured me that it was not a problem. There were about 70 songs on the list. And he only played a handful of them. Which upset me because I had specifically asked my guest on the RSVP for their favorite song. Another time he asked our guest to join us for a dance because the song was a special song for the bride and groom. The song was Ribbons In The Sky by Stevie Wonder. It would be nice if I had even heard the song before. Until that night, that was the first and only time I have ever heard that song. Both DH and myself had this really confused look on our faces. DH and I also had a Chinese tea ceremony at the reception. So we had him read a little history on the tea ceremony for the people that did not know what we were doing. Well he read everything with no problem. Mind you we did not request any music to be played during the ceremony. As to our surprise when the ceremony started he started to play this Asian instrumental music. DH and I were like WTF is he playing! After the tea ceremony ended I over heard him one of my guest that he was looking all over for music and found it on the soundtrack for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. If I had to do my wedding over again, I would defiantly not have gone with Marcel.

Marcel is great to work with. Within the first two minutes of meeting him we felt like we had been friends for years.
