Why do couples love working with you?
Couples love working with us because we provide peace of mind. Our experience and reputation is reassuring. Our couples are able to meet with the actual DJ that will be working their event from the very beginning of the process, allowing them to get to know each other before a contract is even signed. There is no bait-and-switch or hard sale. We want to make sure that we are a good match. By the time the wedding rolls around there is a real relationship and the couple is able to trust that their DJ is right for them and is going to do everything that they can to create a fun and organized event.
A lot of DJs have a chip on their shoulder about the music that they play and aren’t very adaptable. That is not us. We know that the day is about our couples, so we dig deep to find out their vision for the event and what music is going to resonate with them and their guests. We are able to engage the crowd and pack the dance floor without resorting to corny games or banter. We believe that if you play the right music, you don’t need gimmicks.
What do you love most about being a wedding DJ?
That’s an easy one! Bringing the dance floor to maximum capacity, allowing our couples to let loose and celebrate one of the best days of their lives, surrounded by their best friends and family while partying to an epic mix of their favorite songs!
How did you get started?
Bunn DJ Company was started by Joe Bunn in Raleigh, NC in the early 2000’s. After building a very successful solo DJing career, Joe found himself having to turn away clients. Not knowing if they were ending up with a good DJ or not drove him crazy. That’s when he founded Bunn DJ Company, bringing together the best DJs in the area to provide first-rate service for weddings and events. Since then the company has grown to over 30 DJs across 4 states.
While Bunn DJ Company has always DJ’d events across North Carolina, in 2015 Brandon Alley opened a Bunn DJ office in Charlotte to better serve Western NC. Brandon has always been passionate about music and grew up around the DJ industry. He is from a small town a little north of Charlotte but moved to Raleigh to attend NC State. That is where he initially met up with Joe and Bunn DJ Company. After graduating he stayed in Raleigh, working as a designer, but found his way into DJing professionally after friends that had seen him DJ house parties kept asking him to DJ their weddings. He reached out to Bunn DJ Company to learn the ropes and shortly after was welcomed onto the team. After DJing out of the Raleigh office for 4 years, Brandon ditched his design job and moved back to Charlotte, bringing the Bunn DJ Company brand and quality with him.

Most have EV or QSC speakers; Pioneer, Numark, or Roland controllers; Shure or Sennheiser microphones. It’s going to look great and sound even better.

What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you play it?
“This Is How We Do It” – Montell Jordan
Honestly, anytime I go to a wedding and I see that there is a Bunn DJ at the reception I immediately relax because I know that we are in good hands. They are all top notch and know how to DJ a wedding professionally. Highly recommend!
We worked with Brandon Alley for our wedding and he was the best!
Prior to the event, we exchanged emails several times and met in person (after work hours, which was so appreciated and helpful!) to go over plans for the big day. Brandon listened to our “style” and offered suggestions/guidance for songs where we didn’t already have something specific in mind. Even the week of the event, he let us know we were open to making changes.
When we were looking for DJs, I knew I didn’t want anyone over the top – not really my groom’s and my style. Brandon’s personality was perfect for us. He was fun, upbeat, and celebratory but so professional too. His music picks were perfect, he perfectly filled in songs based on some of our faves. We received so many compliments afterward from guests loving the music. He certainly kept people on the dance floor all night. We’re so happy with our decision to use Brandon from Bunn DJ for our wedding day!
Pick Bunn DJ Company! They will not disappoint! If you are looking for a DJ for your event – this company is who you need to be booking with 100%! My wedding was earlier this month and we had David Fox as our DJ! He is AMAZING! Throughout my wedding planning process, David Fox was responsive and organized!
On my wedding day, he was so helpful, fun, and seriously one of my favorite vendors from our special day! We were able to dance the night away and all of our family and friends loved him and had an awesome time! We received many compliments about him! What a great company! Hands down – Five stars!
