My husband and I searched for an affordable DJ/MC for our wedding and after reading tons of raving reviews about Bill Pence music on different websites, we contacted Bill and he responded very quickly to all of our questions and wrote up a quote for us based on our needs and budget. We went ahead and booked him for our wedding and were able to build entire playlists , event timeline , do not play lists and tons of other fun tools on his website to personalize the music at our wedding. Bill periodically checked in with us through the months up to our wedding ensuring that we have everything we need and talked on the phone with us a week before the wedding to go over everything. The day of he arrived early to set up for the ceremony and kept the guests entertained at our reception while we took pictures. Bill also performs songs live if you so choose which I would highly recommend .. He is a wonderful singer and it really does add to the magic of the day. We got tons of compliments on his singing and just his awesome attitude through the whole day. He really does pay attention to the needs of the crowd too by playing fun songs (songs that I didn't think to add) to get people on the dance floor. You would be surprised the difference someone like Bill makes to the overall organization and entertainment of the day. My favorite thing about it all is that I didn't have to worry about staying on time for the different events (first dance , cake cutting , speeches etc..) Bill completely facilitated these events by making fun announcements and gauging the needs of the party. Overall an amazing experience ... If you are on the fence about whether you need a DJ I would encourage anyone who can do it to go for it because it makes a serious difference for the ceremony and reception. Bill got me and my husband on the dance floor (we usually don't dance) with his fun personality and we even had some guests want to take pics with him :) We really couldn't have done it without him.Sent on 07/24/2018

Would recommend to everyone!
Bill was absolutely great, he was able to keep us dancing and incorporate the requested songs into his set. Bill was also able to find and play a pretty rare song that my parents requested on the spot. He made all announcements in time and was flexible when timeline changed a bit, he followed us and our ideas. He was able to provide great value service!

Amazing DJ! Our guests just raved about him.
We hired Bill Pence to be both our wedding DJ and our officiant for our wedding last month. Finding and booking him was truly a wedding "win" for us! He surpassed all of our expectations on our wedding day and we could not be happier with our choice to book him.
Bill is a GREAT DJ and MC. I spoke with him before the wedding and let him know that I expected no guests would dance (our crowd just doesn't dance). Somehow, he was able to get EVERY SINGLE GUEST (even the ones that would NEVER get on the dance floor) to join us for a celebratory dance! We had no idea he was going to do this and it was AMAZING! Everyone cheered and danced together and it was an absolute BLAST! All of our guests just raved about how much fun it was and how good he was at getting people up and involved even if it was just for 30 minutes. On top of that, he really read the crowd and we had so much positive feedback about his song selection.
Bill is also a terrific singer. If you'd like, he is more than happy to perform during your reception. We had him sing our father/daughter and mother/son dance as well as a selection of classic love songs. These were a huge hit. It was really nice to have him perform the dance song as it took some of the attention away from us. When the dance floor opened and he sang some more classic love songs, we had a bunch of couples come out. It was really sweet and well received. He is a really talented performer, and for us this was a huge plus when booking him we weren't even aware of. We told him to feel free to perform throughout the night since we knew our crowd isn't big on dancing, so when the dance floor emptied he scattered in some additional performances.
On top of his skill, Bill's prices are incredibly reasonable (much more so than any other DJ we could find!). We were initially a bit concerned because his prices are so fair; however, he was extremely professional, reliable, a true expert DJ, and fantastic to work with.
We also booked Bill to be our officiant. During our introduction meeting, he told us he offered officiant services for a small additional cost. As an officiant, Bill was charming. His introduction and script was reliable, funny and brief. However, we did find that logistically it's someone complicated to have your DJ also be your officiant. The ceremony music was a bit awkward and not well integrated as he had to have another staff member assist (so he could offiate). After the ceremony, we also had a bit of confusion and a wait to sign the marriage license as he was setting up the music for cocktail hour. We do not blame bill at all for these issues, I think they is just some inevitable awkwardness in having these two jobs be covered by the same person. If we could go back, we'd probably have a separate officiant just because of those logistical issues, but this was not due to any problem on Bill's part! Just personal preference.
All in all, I wholehearted recommend Bill Pence Music for your wedding DJ needs! He is a true expert and an absolute STEAL when you consider he offers the opportunity to have him perform (which he's amazing at). He was great to work with, our guests LOVED HIM, and he was able to make some very special moments for us!
