Wedding DJs in Durban
The Wedding DJ was established in 2009 on the principals of great music, world class service and utmost reliability.
We are not Club DJs, and are well aware that your wedding is very different to any corporate event, birthday party or nightclub. It is at heart a celebration, but it needs to be conducted with the kind of professionalism and expertise that only years of actual wedding DJ experience can provide for. All four of us are happily married and have experienced first hand how difficult it is to choose quality suppliers who you feel comfortable with, and trust will exceed all the expectations of your wedding celebration.
We are wedding specialists and offer a fully comprehensive sound/music solution for wedding celebrations. Most of our DJs are based in Durban, but we will travel to all corners of KZN and the major South African cities.
Trusted and recommended by brides, venues and industry suppliers, The Wedding DJ has built a reputation in KZN surpassed by none.
I am a founding member of The Wedding DJ and come with a wealth of experience DJ’ing at weddings in KZN over the last decade. I specialise in young and fun celebrations, and am well known for getting the party started and keeping the dance floor full all night long without the need to play cheesy songs. At 40 years young I have the ability to connect to any crowd, young or old.
I will meet with you a few weeks before your wedding to discuss your requirements and expectations. Getting the music right on the night is extremely important to me. I will therefore do my best to adjust my music selection to cater for your taste in music, while keeping your guests in mind and making sure the dance floor stays full. You are more than welcome to give me a shortlist of your favourite songs you would love at your wedding, and I’m always open to song requests from your guests, unless it’s the chicken dance.
I cater for all ages during the evening and play well known songs which have been absolute hits over the years. A normal set will include a good balance of the latest and greatest hits currently on the airwaves (Current pop , popular EDM like The Chainsmokers, and even alternative and Indie rock if the crowd leans that way), and pop and rock classics from the last few decades (70’s, 80’s , 90’s and early 2000’s).
My reputation was built on excellent service and reliability, but most importantly great music. I love what I do and look forward to being part of your wedding celebration.
From humble beginnings learning the trade on turntables spinning vinyl records cemented my passion for DJing. Even though I’m now mixing the best party music for young and old on the latest high-end digital gear, I’m always focused on the most important part of any event – the guests. With over 10 years of DJ experience, if you want peace of mind, great music and a smile on the faces of your guests, you’ve arrived in the right place.
I pride myself on tailoring each and every wedding to my clients specific requirements. Everyone is unique, and so your wedding celebration should be too. A day of happy memories to remember for years to come.
I use only the best sound and lighting equipment. The likes of Pioneer, JBL and Martin Lighting to name but a few. I see weddings as my forte’ having supplied mobile DJ services to high profile weddings like that of Rugby World Cup player, Butch James, to small and intimate weddings with 50 guests. I aim to exceed expectations at any function, party or event that I play at.
John Roux is a founding member of The Wedding DJ and has over 25 years’ experience in the industry. He has a track record that speaks for itself and is well respected by the leading venues in KZN. He is currently contracted to Makaranga Garden Lodge in Kloof, but is available for bookings throughout KZN on request.

Since starting out in 1998, and as a founder member of The Wedding DJ, it’s been a rewarding and entertaining journey for “DJ Benny”. However, in 2016 Brendon decided to take a step back from the bright lights and late nights and hung up his headphones, so to speak.
Brendon now fulfils a behind the scenes role as an advisor and standby DJ at TWDJ. This brings great confidence to all future brides booking any of our DJs in that should there ever be an emergency, Brendon is readily available to step in and seamlessly take over to ensure your wedding is the epic celebration it was always going to be.
Having been involved in easily over 500 weddings and functions in the almost 20 years (including Miss South Africa, TV, Music, Radio and Sports celebrities), you might just find the bug biting once again and Brendon assisting the guys from time to time.
