About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I am one of very few performers who can provide either Live Entertainment or DJ/MC services or both all at a world class level. My experience and unique ability to connect and interact with people set me apart from virtually anyone else. Finally I possess the ability to preform an incredibly wide variety of music as a DJ/MC or as a singer/entertainer. I have a massive DJ music library and have the ability to adapt my style to fit any situation or event type.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love making people smile. I love hearing people talking at the end of an event and saying "this is the best party or reception I've ever been to." And of course I can't help but smile when I hear them say, "that DJ was fantastic, where did they find him?" And Finally, I love getting a big smile from my clients at the end of the night and hearing them say, "It was perfect and so much more than we expected!" Hearing those things at my events is what keeps me going and loving every minute of it

    I hired Bill for our 25th wedding anniversary party and he was everything that we wanted and more! Beyond being the perfect DJ, he was a natural at being an MC and was an expert in keeping the guests entertained and the party moving smoothly. He made announcements as needed, and knew what songs to play and when to sing. Our event consisted of a cocktail reception, renewal of marriage vows, dinner service, and dancing. He has a a beautiful voice and some of our guests told me that they walked over to see which artist he was playing of a hit song and was surprised and impressed to discover that it was him singing! It was very classy to have him singing during the reception. It was also amazing that he was able to sing Unchained Melody (which was our wedding dance song 25 years ago) as our son escorted me down to our garden for the renewing of vows ceremony. As a DJ, he has a wide variety of songs and he was a crowd pleaser - he had the right balance of oldies but goodies and current cool hits. He got the us generation of friends (in our 50's and 60's) out on the dance floor but also kept my college-aged kids up and dancing with the current popular songs too. My son who has become a DJ for his fraternity parties was impressed with Bill -- and that's a big endorsement! Overall, Bill exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire someone who is more than a great DJ. I made an i-Movie of our event and the songs he sang really made the video even more special. I love his voice so much that I now listen to his CD often. I would give him more than 5 stars if I could! :-)

    Bill had everyone out on the dance floor the whole night! He was flexible, readily available to answer questions and made the whole process smooth and easy. His website really helped us figure out a general timeline for the wedding and his music made the night so memorable and fun! I'd highly recommend Bill for any party or event; he is an experienced professional who truly understands how to read a crowd and keep people dancing!

    We just got married yesterday and we were fortunate to have Bill Pence as our DJ! We had given him some music suggestions but let him do his business during our wedding. The whole day went seemlesy. Bill is extremely easy to work with and had everyone on the dance floor from the first song. We received many compliments on Bill's work during the reception. He even sang during the dinner hour. Bill has a great voice. You can tell that he really has a passion for his job. Thank you Bill for making our day so enjoyable!

    While he was on time and personable, we did have a few issues. Despite being very clear on the songs we wanted used for the ceremony, he did not use the correct version of one of the most important songs, the groom/groomsmen processional song. This really bothered my husband as he was very much wanting the instrumental only version and was super disappointed about it not being used. Also, Bill did ask if he could sing a bit but I had no idea that it would be quite as often as he did, I would rather have had more of our playlist actually be played then have him sing even though he is a good singer. Another reason for the rating is that my mother/daughter dance was completely forgotten!!! Hardly anyone saw it (I had to beg our photographer and videographer to unpack and film it as they were about to leave) and I had to remind him about it and he stated it wasn't on his list even though I know my husband made sure it was, and my husband had his mother/son dance so it would stand to reason that I would have had something similar. A major complaint from guests was that their requested songs were not played and we only had about 19 song requests, all of which could have been played. The last issue was that we had paid for 6 hours of music and he stopped playing at 12am even though we had a full hour that still could have been played. When I asked him to keep playing while we were cleaning up he refused and said "everyone was done and they're cleaning up" and I said yes, but we would still like to hear the music we paid for but he refused and when my husband went to talk to him he still refused and ultimately gave a one hour refund as compensation. Music is extremely important to us and it was a bit disappointing that this did not live up to our expectation on our most special day. Oh, one last thing, though this may have been somewhat of an oversight on our part as well, but it was never announced that there was wine and beer available and that the rest was a no-host bar so we ended up not having much of our beer consumed, and I would have hoped this would have been something he would have done.

    To anyone reading this review, may I encourage you to read ANY or ALL of the nearly 100 reviews posted here. It has been my hope to reach 100 Thumbtack reviews with a satisfaction rate of 100%. It is unfortunate and regrettable that I will have to settle for 99%. While I will take a moment to address some of the issues raised above, I will let all of my previous and future reviews speak for themselves. I hope you will evaluate this review in light my well earned and long standing reputation for excellence, attention to detail, and absolute commitment to customer service. I always put my clients first, and I believe I did so in this case as well. Having taken some time for honest evaluation, I would not have done anything differently. It should be noted, that not once, but on at least three separate occasions during the reception, the groom came to me to express his extreme appreciation and pleasure regarding the job I was doing to make everything "perfect!" During his last visit with me late in the evening, he stated emphatically "I love everything you're doing, I love the music, I love the song selection, I love the mix, I love the flow, I loved the singing, You are amazing!" So what happened to create the review above? Every single issue raised above is completely inaccurate and without merit accept one. It is true that the event was scheduled to end at 1am and I stopped the music at just after midnight. I stand guilty as charged. But I would do so again in the same situation. However, please allow me to review the actual situation. First, the groom in the conversation mentioned earlier, asked me to play the chosen music and coordinate their "sparkler send off" because everyone was leaving. The time was 11:15pm. In almost all cases, the sparkler send off of the bride and groom would signal the end of the party. But since the groom asked if he could sing a song after the exit (which he did, and quite well may I say) I kept things going. By 11:45 pm, the venue had turned on all the lights, cleared and completely broken down all the tables, and there had been no one near the dance floor since 11:15. The venue had already decided the party was over. It had been a great party, but clearly it was done so I followed their lead. By midnight, there had been no one near the dance floor for 45 minutes, all tables and chairs had been removed and no one was left inside except a couple people gathering items and cleaning up. As I played my closing song, I was totally surprised when the groom approached me about playing longer. I assured him the party was done and the venue had already decided that. I pointed out the bright lights and the completely empty venue. I offered to play a couple more songs if he wanted, but he declined. I finished the final song and began breaking down. At this point, the bride came in wearing street clothes and asked why I was stopping. I simply said, the party is over and clearly the venue has decided we are done. A few minutes later the groom came to inquire again and asked if I was refusing to play until 1am. I said simply, yes that is correct. At this point, he demanded a refund. Even though I thought it totally unwarranted, I reached in my pocket and handed him a $100 bill. I reminded him that there was no one left to play for, to which he replied, we are still here and we want to stay and drink our beer. Everyone had enjoyed a really good time, but I realized at that moment I had made the right call for the good of all concerned. Though I must confess that I have never seen anything quite like this in my 30 plus years as an entertainment specialist, I would make the same decision every time. When I made it, I actually thought about the review it might generate. I chose to do what was best and reasonable no matter the cost. By 12:20 everyone was gone and the venue staff thanked me for shutting things down and reassured me I had made the right decision. If you have read this far, I congratulate you! Please allow me to very briefly address all the other issues raised above. Keep in mind however, that I received nothing but unqualified praise from the groom throughout the reception until the very end. Clearly none of the other issues would have even been mentioned without the last one. . I NEVER ask if I can sing at an event. I offer this unique service as an option and make it very clear that I am your DJ/MC and only sing with the the specific request and permission of my clients. I did so here. You should know that I did not receive any information regarding the reception until the day before the event. I did not receive the music selections requested until after 11 PM the night before the wedding. In an effort to serve my clients at any cost, I worked diligently to make sure everything was ready, I worked until 4AM the morning before the wedding. I did find and play an instrumental version of the song requested for the groom's processional with the requested instrumentation. I would have no way of knowing whether this was exactly what was desired due to the lack of time for any double checking. The mother//daughter dance was not forgotten. It was never submitted in any of the information provided to me at any time. Even though I gently informed the bride of this, it made little difference. I specifically asked the groom in my phone consultation about any specifically requested songs. I was provided with a Spotify song list with several hundred listed songs and told that requested songs referred to songs that might be requested by guests at the reception. I played ALL guest requested songs. As to 19 specific song requests mentioned above, I was given no information regarding these songs whatsoever. I can say that the dance floor was packed for most of the night, the groom expressed his extreme pleasure at the music selection and most of the songs I played were from the massive Spotify list provided to me late into the evening the night before the wedding. Regarding the announcement about free beer and wine, it is unfortunately not possible to announce what you do not know. While no system is perfect, it is likely that all of these lesser issues could have been avoided by submitting the planning information within the recommended time period. When so much information is put together and submitted in the final hour, it is much more likely that things are overlooked. This is always unfortunate and regrettable no matter who is at fault. In closing, it is always regrettable and extremely disappointing when things don't go as planned or expectations are not met. The information I have shared here is not meant to diminish how badly I feel that my clients are disappointed and that their expectations were not met. I have earned the reputation and reviews I have because I am passionately committed to pleasing my clients and putting their needs and desires ahead of my own. Any time my clients feel otherwise,, I can't help but feel that I have failed in some way. After all these years, I still feel the same way and I am saddened that this couple was not completely satisfied with my services.I will never stop learning or trying to be even better at what I do and I am thankful to anyone who takes the time to write a review so that I can be the best I can be.

    We hired Bill Pence for our wedding on May 20, 2017. Bill was great from the start. He met with us to go over his pricing and what his services included. As soon as he told my fiancé that he offers live singing, my fiancé immediately wanted to hire him for our wedding. Bill was flexible and was willing to meet with us the week of our wedding to go over last minute details. He was always very friendly and had great tips for our wedding. My cousin played a song during the ceremony and Bill was able to coordinate with the keyboard rental company to make sure that we had the correct equipment for the big day. The day of the wedding, Bill arrived early and had everything set up nicely. He reassured me that everything was going well throughout the night. We had many guests comment on how they were so surprised to learn that Bill was singing some of the songs and how great of a job he was doing. Bill handled everything with professionalism and he had the dance floor packed for the entire night. We would definitely recommend Bill to anyone looking for an awesome DJ!!

    Some of the first words Bill said to me on the phone were, "You know, it's not really about the money-- I just love doing this." All you really need to know is that he absolutely means it, and does it in style. Every stage of planning, preparation, and day-of event execution were an absolute pleasure when working with Bill. He's friendly and easy to communicate with over the phone and easily accessible with questions via email. His website's song selection and event planning service make scheduling and preference listing a breeze. If you're unsure of how you want your reception to look, he offers great suggestions and can help put your itinerary together. He's a fantastic MC and paces the evening well, but most importantly, he can read a crowd and make sure the dance floor is always crowded. I can't say enough great things about this one-man show!

    I found Bill on Thumbtack 2 days before my wedding so as you can imagine I was pretty stressed out. All of that stress went out the window after my first email exchange, his price was beyond fair and his overall attitude was amazing. He was a definite highlight of our big day everyone loved our "singing DJ". Thanks DJ Bill!

    WOW!!! People are still talking about our Wedding. We hired Bill for our special day on 04/15/17. Go with Bill Pence for your wedding reception....period. He is more than a DJ, he's an amazing entertainer. We had cocktail hour and sit down dinner for our wedding. During that time we asked him to play some oldies but goodies. (Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and some smooth Jazz). Everyone was amazed as they were eating dinner and noticed that he was actually singing some of the songs and was doing a very good job a it. They are still making comments about how good he was. Needless to say that was added bonus to start the night off. When it came time to party we kicked it up a notch with some Old School Funk, Hip Hop R&B as well as requests from the crowd. He even threw in some Tupac "California Love" The dance floor was never empty and we even had a "Soul Train" line. The energy in the room was electric and he fed off of it. His system is pretty easy to use and allows you to customize the songs and order according to your likes as well as what is popular. I myself have planned many parties and have dj a few weddings. I also have several friends that are DJs and attended our wedding and they were also impressed. I didn't want to have a friend "work" our day. Bottom line. I would hire him again and would highly recommend him for you future event. Scott & Christy Cypress

    Go with Bill for Your Wedding Reception
    Go with Bill Pence for your wedding reception....period. We found him on online because his reviews were solid. But he's more than a DJ, he's a full entertainment consultant, MC, signer, host, party planner, rolled into one amazing guy. He has a keen sense of the vibe of a party and knows how to entertain and keep the energy up. He met with us before hand, helped us plan out the reception with the goal of making people dance and keeping it fun and he nailed it. He accommodates all your requests, is kind, friendly, and knows his craft and is super flexible in the moment. I'm not a wedding / party planner but I had sort of an idea of what I thought would be a cool reception but as more and more pressure built as we got closer I realized I didnt know what I was doing, so I said to Bill last minute, "Bill, just do your thing." I'm glad I did, because he kept the party going while still incorporating our likes and requests. Everyone at our wedding was wondering where we found Bill. My advice, be open to his experience, he knows how to keep it fun and rest assured that you're in good hands with Bill. I would hire him again for future parties.

    BEST DJ EVER!
    My fiance and I hired Bill for our wedding purely based off his reviews, not meeting him until the day of the wedding, and I had only talked to him once the week of. He was perfect! He took the few song requests I had entered, and went with it. There have been people coming up to me for several days saying how great he was. We also had an art car from Burning Man that Bill played on top of, making the experience even more surreal. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ to get the crowd moving. He plays songs that all generations know and can dance to. Several of our guests have said they've never been to a wedding where every single person has danced, and every single person danced at our wedding. That says a lot about the type of DJ Bill is. I've heard that the DJ makes or breaks a party, and Bill definitely made our wedding a party to remember. Thank you Bill! Shane and Denae

    Profressional, experienced, and fun DJ!
    I first encountered Bill at a friend's wedding in 2014 where my now husband and I had a great time. When we finally got engaged and began the wedding planning process ourselves, I turned to this friend for recommendations on different vendors and she reminded me of their fun DJ. Bill was very responsive to email and we were able to set up a time to chat on the phone to go over our future wedding details and book him for the date! His prices are very reasonable and straight forward and we were thrilled he was not only game for the drive up to Tahoe but also to get his DJ equipment up the Squaw tram to high camp at 8200ft! He has a great online planning tool where you can put in your wedding day details, bridal party names, and specific song selections. With his tools you are able to search tons of different songs, look at some of the most popularly played songs by genre, year, or specific wedding event which was super helpful. You can select your must plays, songs that would be nice to hear, or your do NOT plays. On the day of Bill arrived early, coordinated with both our venue and our day of coordinators to get everything set up. Him and our officiant were able to do a sound check for the ceremony which was great because our location was windy and our guests all said they could hear everything perfectly! For the reception he was set up nicely around the dance floor with additional dance floor lighting. He played a great variety of songs that we had requested mixed with other popular wedding reception songs that went well with our selections. He was great at getting the dance party started and getting as many people as he could on the dance floor from the beginning! Bill has been doing this for years and his experience shows, he is able to coordinate your timeline well, have great/clear sound, and knows how to kick up the party from the beginning. We would definitely recommend Bill to anyone looking for a professional, experienced, and fun DJ for their event!

  • Bryan J. Jul 17, 2016
    When I think of Bill and the DJ/MC services he provided for our wedding, words such as professional, fun, organized, flexible, and unique come to mind. From the very first communication with bill via email to the multiple phone calls hashing out details, and finally working with him in person on the big day, Bill was punctual, on his game and open to any and all requests we had. Bill has a very nice online event planning system that allows for you to tailor all aspects of your music (must play/do not play songs), and logistical needs. Although if interested he allows for you to craft every aspect of your playlist, per his recommendation, we only included a few songs that we definitely wanted to hear and obviously our selections for the special dances. After that, Bill crafted a very appropriate playlist fitting the mood from pre ceremony to cocktail hour, dinner, and finally the dance party. Further, he sang a number of songs (he's got an amazing voice) and even facilitated multiple guests request to karaoke. A definite highlight of the day was when he planted the idea in my head to sing "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias during the dance party as it was a song that had a special connection for my wife and I. Bill provides all of his own equipment and manages all of his own setup. He has a vast music library (allowing for all types of requests) that doesn't require internet connection to use. Finally, his flexibility and ability to find solutions to specific audio needs is unparalleled. He has a wide selection of both lapel and handheld mics to make any type of sound setup work. We needed a mic on a live violin while he played a backing track for our ceremony. Bill took care of this no problems. Finally, one memorable (of many) moment at our wedding facilitated by Bill was his introductions for our bridal party and my wife and I during the reception. With out giving too much away I will say it was as close as I will ever get to feeling like I was introduced in a NBA game.

    Dear Bryan & Kristine, It was truly a pleasure to be a small part of such a special day in your lives. I'm so glad you and your guests had such a great time. Your song was awesome and a highlight of the evening! I wish the very best for both of you. Bill

It's a great way for him to get to know you through the music you like so he can better cater your event so that you have the day you dreamed of. Bill is wonderful singer so I recommend that you have him sing for you! Unfortunately, we had rain and I was very stressed out. Bill called me just to check on me and offer encouragement that everything was going to work out fine...and it did! If I ever need DJ services again in the future, he will be my only "Go too"!

    Bill recently provided the DJ services at my wedding. There was about 90 guests at our wedding, all of our families and close friends. From the beginning, Bill was available to answer any questions I had. After our very first phone call he made me feel at ease and confident that everything would go smooth. Once the big day was finally here, Bill showed up early, had music playing for early arriving guests, and was energetic and pleasant. What makes Bill really unique is his live singing option. My favorite part of the evening was when Bill was singing "Pretty Woman" out on the dance floor, interacting with my family and getting everyone dancing. I had one family member message me the next day saying our wedding was the first time they have danced since their stroke in 2012. My wedding night was perfect and I am so thankful that we chose Bill to provide the music/entertainment for our wedding. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for an exceptional wedding DJ. As a side note, Bill also provided last minute officiant services for our wedding when I found out the day before that our original officiant would not be able to make it. In the middle of my panic to find someone to preform our ceremony, I reached out to Bill and he told me to sit back, relax, and everything would be taken care of. Bill went above and beyond to make our wedding night fantastic.

    We hired Bill as the DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception, and he did an outstanding job! His communication was very thorough prior to the event and he made sure he had all the info before hand so the day of went very smoothly. Our ceremony needed a small speaker but had no power available, and Bill provided the perfect setup for us. He arrived early at the event and was setup and ready to go with absolutely no fuss or hand holding, it was great that we didn't have to check in with him constantly. We didn't really have a clear idea of what we wanted for our reception, just wanted it to be fun, and Bill nailed it. He's got a good form you fill out with suggestions and music lists, very easy to use. He really got what we wanted and the party was a blast. He had a diverse selection of music and really kept the party going. We would highly recommend Bill, the most important thing for us was that he just took care of everything so we could have a good time. Couldn't have asked for a better experience with a DJ! PS the live singing option is very cool too! He's careful not to turn the event into a concert and distract from the celebration, and it brings some extra entertainment when people notice he's singing live!

    I got in contact with Bill after reading some great reviews. After communicating with multiple individuals about being our DJ/MC for our reception, he was by far the easiest to talk to and get in contact with! Thankfully, he was available on our reception date and even on such short notice, he was able to work with our budget. We wanted our reception to be low key and on the informal side of semi-formal. His transitions for the evening from one "event" to the next was seamless. From small introductions, cake cutting, toasts and all the way to the last dance was done extremely well. He even live sang quite a few songs and even one that my mom was dying to hear all night (which was a HUGE bonus!). His singing was absolutely beautiful, I cannot begin to explain how many people said how great he was and were asking for his contact information throughout the night. My husband and I like a variety of genres of music and that is exactly what Bill did with minimal effort on my part before the wedding. We had a short phone conversation to clarify a few things and make sure we were on the same page and that was it. He got (literally) everyone up and dancing, which really surprised me as I did not take most of our crowd to be the dancing type. I am still blown away by how perfectly that evening went. If you want an awesome, charismatic, thoughtful, entertaining DJ/MC I HIGHLY recommend giving him a call. Thank you again Bill!

    Bill was our D.J for our Son's wedding. I must say i was extremely impressed. We had a variety of ages and he managed to entertain them all. He made the wedding special, not only entertained by music but wedding games. He was truly amazing and personable. I highly recommend him for any event, he also has an amazing voice, most of the guest did not realize he was singing, he sounded so much like the actual singer. He has a great personality, will definately use him for our next wedding. Thank you Bill, you are amazing. Everyone boasted about your services, they loved you

    Mr. Bill Pence was wonderful! He did such a fabulous job at out wedding. He really went above and beyond our expectations. We asked him to play funk, oldies, and Christian music and he really hit the nail on the head with everything! He kept the guests engaged and I absolutely loved his choices in songs. He asked us for the specific songs for our wedding and other than that, we did not have to do anything. He took care of everything and it was one less thing for us to worry about. He really knows what he is doing. We are so very happy that we chose Mr. Pence to DJ at our wedding. Not to mention the fact that he went out of his way to come to work with us and make it to our wedding. Thank you, Bill! We are forever grateful! -Bryan and Rosie Banford

    My husband and i hired Bill for our Nov 1st wedding after having never met Bill or heard any of his music. There are literally not enough nice things that i can say about our experience. He was the most reliable person that i delt with throughout the entire wedding planning process. Our wedding turned out to be so much more organized and exciting than we thought it would be. Bill was my right hand man and made sure that everything happened exactly when it was supposed to be happening. The live music was incredible. He really has a nack for knowing the kind of music to play that will get people out of their seats dancing. Even my grandparents (Who are not into dancing or music or any sort of activies) were up and dancing. :D I am still after a month later, having people ask me who our dj was.There is not one thing that i think could have been better. Bill really was the reason that everything with our reception turned out to be fantastic. I know that everyone looking for a dj reads these reviews and is still kinda iffy on who to hire. Please please please listen to me when i say that you will not find a better dj than Bill! Save yourself a ton of time and contact him before someone else snatches him up! Thank you for everything, Bill. Your the man!!

    Bill DJ'd our 50th wedding anniversary party and was fantastic. He was there early to set up and was all ready to go when guests started to arrive. He had the perfect music for our big Italian event and played the appropriate music throughout the evening. He sang the many songs and more as requested and he was great. The quality of his work was unsurpassed throughout the evening and many of the guests came to us that evening and called several days later to compliment his performance and the quality of his work. He kept the evening moving along and had everyone, from 18 months old to 83 years, out on the dance floor and everyone had a great time. Bill went above and beyond and I can't think of anything that Bill would need to improve on. The experience was amazing from the first time we met with Bill to the very end of the evening.

    My wife and I hired Bill Pence to DJ at our wedding and it quite possibly was the best decision I could have made. He is 100% professional and brings extensive understanding of weddings and reading the crowd to the table. All I needed to do was give Bill an basic idea of what I wanted and he took care of the rest. During out wedding he worked with the venue staff, catering staff and ensured my guests we following with the order of events while I got to sit back and enjoy my wedding. Many of my guests complimented me on how well organized and planned my wedding was and, to be honest I took the credit. But, in reality, it was Bill's knowledge and experience that carried the wedding. He was by far the best investment I made into our special day. In my book, you can't go wrong with Bill Pence.

Bill and I talked on the phone and through email before my wedding day. I explained to Bill the age demographics, the variety of music we liked and what we wanted to hear during the reception. He kept the flow of the reception moving perfectly. Bill played all the music we loved, got everyone involved and sang live during the reception. What a fantastic blend that was, he has a beautiful voice. Bill made my reception magical and memorable for us. For our last dance Bill had us in the center of the dance floor and all our guests around us in a big circle holding hands around us. What a beautiful and lasting memory that was for us.

    Bill Pence did the music for our wedding ceremony, reception and dancing. The ceremony started at 5 pm and the reception and dancing lasted until 10:00 pm. Bill was, by far, better than any DJ I have ever heard. The music for the ceremony was perfect. Some guests even commented how wonderful the music was during the ceremony. During the reception and dinner, Bill not only played great music, he sang some of the songs during this time! His singing was better than the original recordings.....the guests that figured out it was him singing and not the original artists were amazed! He has a fantastic voice and the live music was wonderful. The dancing music started after dinner and once it started, everyone was dancing! Bill played and sang everyone's favorite dance music. The dance floor was jam-packed the entire two hours, from 8-10pm! Everyone had a great time at our wedding and all of the guests said Bill was one of the main reasons it was so fun! I would recommend Bill Pence Music in a second to anyone wanting a GREAT time! He was spot-on with his music and is very professional and friendly! Thanks Bill for making our wedding such a success!

I didn't want a DJ at first, but I'm so glad I landed up getting him because he helped the reception go very smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. When he had a question, he didn't mind going to the person I pointed to that had the answer, allowing me to relax and enjoy my time. I'd use him again if I have another event.

    Bill, you rocked that reception! You had everyone dancing, from the youngest to the oldest! And this at a "low key" wedding where nobody was really expecting to dance, hahaha!! You were so in tune to what was "going on" and kept everybody happy. It turned out to be the best wedding reception I've ever been to because of YOU!! You're a fool if you hire anyone other than Bill Pence.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once I receive an inquiry, I respond immediately in order to answer any questions a new client may have. I then send out a wedding or event questionnaire in order to gather the necessary information to prepare an event proposal. I then e-mail each potential client who is interested in booking my services, an event proposal and a link to my online planning tools. In order to book my services the client simply signs and returns the event proposal with the required deposit (usually $100). Then the planning process begins and I am always available to work with each and every client as their event and entertainment professional.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Music and entertainment have been my full-time profession since 1991. I have served as DJ/MC and entertainment specialist at literally thousands of weddings, corporate events and private parties. I have traveled throughout California and all across the United States to share my skill and expertise as a professional entertainment specialist. I have been a featured speaker at numerous DJ conventions and I personally trained many of the Sacramento areas finest DJs. At last count there are at least six full-time DJ companies in Sacramento whose owners were trained by and works for me at some point. Music and entertainment are my passion and my business.
What types of customers have you worked with?
At this point in my career, there is virtually no situation or any type of client with which I am not familiar. I have done weddings for 10 people or 2000 people and everywhere in between. I have played every type and style of music and worked with nearly every culture one could think of. I performed corporate events for some of America's largest companies in done simple office parties for 25 people. There is almost no situation that I have not seen and no problem that I cannot overcome. In short, I have tons of experience and lots of common sense!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's all about reputation and references. Always verify the claims of your service providers by talking with others in the industry and with references and/or reviews they may provide. In today's world, reviews can tell you a lot. Read reviews carefully and make sure they are reasonably current.
