Manie de Bruin 50th birthday party – 01/05/2021 -

DJ Nelo helped to make my 50th birthday party a great success! He used the playlist that we provided as a basis, but adapted it to suit the crowd when required. From our first inquiry, all staff members of DJ Entertainment responded promptly and handled the communications superbly. The DJ also arrived in plenty of time to set up at the venue. I would definitely recommend DJ Nelo and his team for an awesome evening’s entertainment.

Wedding – Candice Natasha Oliveira -

DJ Nelo is the best. I had last minute changes to some of the music we wanted for our wedding ceremony and he changed it no problem. All the music was on queue. Then with just a handful of songs we liked his entire playlist for our wedding was brilliant, perfect really. Everybody had the best time and danced till the venue started switching the lights on and packing up.

March 23, 2019


Wedding – Raquel Unterslak -

Communicating with Manuel was so easy. It wasn’t necessary to meet with him to prior to our wedding, which was a huge relief seeing as we were so busy. I simply sent through a list of songs, the order of service and the floorplan, and Manual did the rest! We had a great night, the music was phenomenal, and the lighting during our first dance was superb. Thank you Manuel for contributing to a fantastic wedding reception!

Good morning…

Just wanted to thank DJ MANUEL from dance jam for making our evening such an incredible success.

There is no doubt in my mind that the party was a success because of DJ MANUEL… he is incredible at what he does… he set up everyrhing 100%… the lighting,  video, mic ,music…everything was 100%…he just knew how to keep the crowd happy and certainly set the tone for the night… worth every cent!

Thank you so so much…

“The Vermaak family”


Whayne Maartens – 50th Birthday -

This review is so long overdue – but if you are still looking for your DJ you can stop here. Our event was truly amazing and we give a huge amount of credit to Dance Jam Entertainment for that, especially DJ Nelo. Manuel was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. He was always so responsive and really helped us figure out what would work best any time we were indecisive. He took a ton of time to get to know us and made sure our event truly reflected our personal style. And everyone had such a great time, which was really the most important thing to us. Family and friends are still telling us how much fun they had at our event! Dance Jam Entertainment was honestly one of the best decisions we made, so seriously, if you are still looking for your DJ – stop. You will not be disappointed! 🙂 Highly HIGHLY recommend!

Wedding – Doug & Sonja 11 Aug 2018 -

Good morning team

A big thank you to DJ Nelo (Manuel) for an exceptional event. He was professional and had the play list down to the last detail. From the initial meeting to the final set up everything was run and managed perfectly. We had the most incredible event!

We really appreciate the extra effort that you put it … Thank you so much ..will definitely recommend you to all my friend and family

Wedding -Madelein 02 Dec 2017 -

My husband and I approached dance jam because of the fact that DJ Nelo has experience with portuguese weddings. I’m Portuguese and my husband isn’t, so we needed a good mix of Portuguese/modern/classics. We had no idea what to expect but we were blown away!! Every genre and generation was covered and the dance floor was always full! Even the songs during the formalities were stunning. Thank you Manuel for your attentiveness to the crowd and making our wedding so memorable!

Wedding- Nathea Feb 2018 -

I literally planned my wedding ?? within a month, I remember DJ Nelo aka Manny played at my sisters 40th birthday bash the year before in February 2017. He kept the crowed entertained and the party didn’t once die down. We partied the night away and I wanted that for our wedding celebration ? ?. The guests got involved and sent me a list of songs before my wedding day and he played all our songs and more! ? he is excellent and I highly recommend him for any function

Wedding – Brad Jan 2018 -

“Our DJ experience with Manuel was incredible. Admittedly things were a bit stressful before the event, as Manuel insisted that our layout at the venue was not great for DJ’ing. After much effort, and Manuel even coming out to the venue, we worked with the venue and identified a really good solution.

Manuel really put in a great amount of effort, and was extremely attentive to everything happening in the evening. Even noticing that our little cousins were singing a song to us on the side, and deliberately held off on playing music again till they had finished.

We had seen Manuel perform before, and was the driving force behind us wanting him, and he did not let us down. His knack for getting people onto the dance floor and keeping it going is superb.

Swearing was blanked out effortlessly, as we had asked for no swearing in the music.

I heard from the guests that the background music, during welcome drinks in the garden, and whilst inside was all great, and the mood was well set.

We were extremely happy with Manuel, and could not have hoped for a better evening of music. He really did go the extra mile to make sure everything was great.”


Thanks and Kind Regards


70th birthday party – John Meiring -

Hi Manuel,

We were extremely pleased to meet you & experience your professional approach  —  all the referrals we read about you prior to asking you to ‘do’ the music for my 70th. Birthday Party at our home, were absolutely correct.

You judged the mood, tone, age & character of the guests & even accommodated the hooligans (not me of course!) amongst my friends.

For me the ‘stand out’ contribution you made to the success of my party, was that you went to so much trouble to satisfy my request for special South African Rock Groups from the early 60’s   —  you were amazing!!!

We wish you all the best & will definitely recommend you and use you again.

Thank you.

John – now into my 8th. Decade & loving it!

Wedding – Nolene & Warren 09/09/2017 at Pont de Val -

the months before our big day. You were there every step.

Your skill, passion, and fantastic ear for music kept our party going..
The quality of sound was perfect. I would recommend your professional, friendly
services to anyone I know. Thank again.

lighting effects were superb – Wedding DJ Service - Blake and Fallon Beilings

Hi Colin and Manuel

Thank you for providing your services for our wedding day. The lighting effects were superb and though the crowd was extremely varied, we managed to get most people on the dance floor at once point or another. This was a job well done, considering the short space of time we had to finalize the playlists.

Thank you for contributing to the success of our special day!

BIG thank you to your DJ Manuel - Gugulethu Buthelezi

Hi Colin,

I hope this mail finds you well and hope you had a great weekend.

I would just like to take this opportunity and send a BIG thank you to your DJ Manuel for providing the entertainment at my Gala dinner function last week Wednesday. He was fantastic and my delegates loved every minute of the music. He stuck to the brief in terms of music choice and was most professional.

I will definitely be contacting you for future events as it is quite hard to find a DJ who is that good at a reasonable rate.

PS: really love the idea of smsing your song request.

absolutely loved the DJ - Ana

Hi Colin,

I got your contact information from a party I was at (Gugulethu Buthelezi) and I absolutely loved the DJ who was at that Party. His name is DJ Nelo and I would really like for him to do our end of year function which will be on the 8th December. Please may I get a quote for us to have DJ Nelo dj at our end of year function?

Thank you

Last week I needed to book a DJ at the last minute – I asked Mr Google and the first company that popped up was Dance Jam Entertainment. I called the owner Colin Burns who was friendly and made a plan to help me out on short notice. I was a bit worried as you never know with a DJ company you have not used before. Let me tell you the DJ we got was Manuel – I have NEVER ever had such a great function. He was spot on with the music had the crowd dancing the entire night.

I loved every minute of it. What made me even happier was the effects that he brought with him – he had Amazing lights and smoke machines. Colin, Manuel Thank you very much your equipment was top notch and you made my event feel like that of a super star !!

Fun Day at Orban Hockey Field in Melville - Jaqui Smith

Dear Manuel


Thank you so much for your explicitly inspiring donation to Park Care Centre on Saturday 29 August 2015! The pamper of all the elderly on the Elderly 2015 Fun Day with your lovely music (as I was informed), goes exceedingly above the exceptional, and any mention of gratitude cannot express our sincere appreciation of this performance of nobility.

Park Care Centre Management and Personnel together with the Aged, the University of Johannesburg Students, Members of Tutela and Joburg Municipality, who were all participants of the Fun Day held at the Orban Hockey Field in Melville, being audience members of the most enjoyable and at times nostalgic music from DJ Entertainment, are so delighted that you consented to our appeal on such short notice from the date of our appeal to you. Your generous contribution of a beautiful wide assortment of music, using your own sound systems and other required equipment from DJ Entertainment, your benevolence showing your kind care, compassion and offering your supportive involvement in such a manner as to honour these extremely vulnerable persons and Park Care Centre, is beyond description! And in addition, sacrificing your respite time, especially early on a Saturday morning, is in excess of any acclamation. Acts of kindness such as these calls for our sincere gratitude and it is our honest resolve to convey such great compliment toDJ Entertainment!

Furthermore, the remarkable efficacy that you meted out with your support, attentiveness, approachability, responsiveness and goodwill, in order to demonstrate your support and affinity to the precious Senior Citizens, Park Care Centre, UJ second year Students of the Department of Sport and Movement studies, Tutela (previous NG Ministry of Caring) and Joburg Muncipality, is extraordinary and words cannot express how much it means to Management and the Personnel of especially Park Care Centre!

Manuel, bless you and your wife for the thoughtful gesture of sensitivity that you have showered upon all participants of the 2015 Fun Day for the Aged – we sincerely commend your act of kindness and goodwill.

Your willingness to act in accordance to the urgency of our appeal requesting assistance to the organizers of the 2015 Fun Day for the Aged by supplying the much needed music, which was thoroughly enjoyed and without which the event would not have been such a great success, brings an exceedingly renewed purpose and meaning to the undertaken task of Park Care Centre and the other participating organisations to show love and care for the elderly, frail, fragile, and even in some cases, the forgotten and forlorn. The friendship of DJ ENTERTAINMENT unveils such a vibrant deed of people who chose the unconventional objective to demonstrate their appreciation and awareness and care to a group of Golden agers of our society, showing your notion of affiliation toward these aged and frail, producing an air of delight, motivation and encouragement to the guests, personnel and students.

The regeneration you brought through the sponsorships of DJ Entertainment’s music, time and equipment, was an inspiration for all to be had and brought about sheer joy and appreciation of being recognised and remembered, fulfilling a sense of meaningfulness to the diverse society, shielded in the complete understanding that individuals and businesses of today, as yourself, who are in the commercial world of entertainment, mutually grasp the intensity of collective esteem towards those individuals living in fragility.

The affiliation of DJ Entertainment with everyone concerned at the 2015 Fun Day for the Aged, contributed greatly to the huge success of the proceedings on the morning of 29th August 2015, arranged by the Students of the UJ Department of Sport and Movement studies, and other associates. Participating guest from the various homes truly celebrated this occasion that was highlightedby the respected andunique contribution of DJ Entertainment to assist in boosting morale and building close relationships that benefits both the elderly, young and other delegates from various institutes, also serving the well-being and pleasure of specifically Park Care Centre’s severely fragile residents, bringing great transformation to these very delicate individuals as music and fun and fellowship are motivation factors for encouragement, ensuing the value of their worth. Manuel, your support injects reinforcement into Park Care Centre’s and others’ mission to bring comfort to the elderly and ensure improvement to their quality of life, effecting about supplementary essence in the lives of many.

The input of DJ Entertainment progressively influences the aim to compose fundraising and business development concerns for Park Care Centre 24/7 Frail Nursing Care, (being a totally new position created in December 2014), in terms of the enforced imperative and mandatory necessity to pursue public and corporate support. The inevitable need of this position is attributed to the reality that great (and considerably increasing) demands are being made on Park Care Centre, wherewith nowadays virtually 2/3rds of the Residents are marginalised and thus classified predominantly within the sub-economic income group, therefore being relatively dependent on sponsorship from Park Care Centre, for their accommodation and other additional necessities.

As you may recognise, our work is immensely important, and even more so, the people who are placed in the nurturing care, provision and attention of Park Care Centre’s 24/7 Frail Nursing Care Facility, and we firmly believe that what we do is extremely important as it is highly valued.

Therefore, your time and in-kind contribution helps us to continue in the importance of assisted nursing care and in the supplemental services we provide.

As the Centre is deemed to be crucial in many ways for many people, its success and continuation is predominantly made possible with the support of enterprises and entities such as yourself.

Bless you richly and we earnestly hope that there will be many more future affiliations between yourself, DJ Entertainment, and the personnel of Park Care Centre 24/7 Frail Nursing Care on behalf of the Elderly and Frail.

Karaoke party - Sarah Dewing

Dear Manuel,

I hope you’re well?
I’d like to say thank you for the absolutely wonderful service you provided on Tuesday night.
Everything was perfect!

It was a pleasure working with you and I’d highly recommend you to anyone.

Dave Talbot & Ifat wedding - Dave & Ifat Talbot

You have to understand, that for someone like me (former DJ), it is extremely difficult to find someone to handle MY OWN WEDDING. I chose Manny and Dance Jam based on my gut feeling about them as professionals (based on our brief dealings), and on their excellent reputation, and online profile.
We could not be happier with our decision. Manny, you did an absolutely stellar job. Everything was perfect, and your system and setup blew us and our guests away.

Again, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Northern Chinese Sports Association - Trudy

Dear Manuel,

My review:
DJ entertainment catered for three different events at our 57th South African Chinese Association hosted by the Northern Gauteng Chinese Association. They were very well priced, extremely professional and their punctuality was most appreciated.

They walked through the events with the MC and worked well together with all involved. Listening and reading the crowd well.

Thank you for a job well done.

Without a doubt, one of the best parts of our wedding – the incredible DJ Nelo. Thank you so much for the lovey music for the ceremony, cocktails and the reception. The dancefloor was full all evening with our guests dancing the night away. The smoke machine and lighting was fabulous and really created that party atmosphere… They say the music is one of the most important parts of the wedding, and with DJ Nelo you wont have to worry about a thing. Thank you so much!

Alex & Laurianne Wedding at Oakfield Farm - Laurianne Dreyer

DJ Nelo,

My friend, giving u 5 stars is almost an insult, u deserve 20 stars. We approached you after attending 2 functions previously where you played and i remember asking u for your business card after the first event, both myself and my husband were totally blown away with your talent, so when it was time for us to get married, there was no shopping around for a DJ, as there is only one, and that was you. Not knowing much of what to do for our wedding, as neither of us have been married before, we met with you and from our first discussions, we were so comfortable with your professionalism. When we met at your studio, you figuratively took us by the hand and lead us through everything, covering things we never even thought of like an entrance song and so forth. Coming to our wedding day, a good dj ensures a successful wedding, however having booked you, an incredible dj, ensured a spectacular wedding – one that people are still talking about. We cannot begin to thank you enough for your patience, guidance, talent and professionalism. In out eyes, there is only ONE dj, and that is you. Everything from the lighting to music schedule was simply awesome, there was not a moment from when you started at 21:00 till 02:00, that the dance floor was empty, even when the lights were already on, you kept the people boogying, including the bride and groom (yes, there was no leaving the early, the music had us hooked). Thank you thank you thank you, we will NEVER forget our magical day, nor our AMAZING dj. You will always be our dj of choice and i promise that we will refer only u to anyone we know. God bless you.

As first time clients I was obviously a bit nervous…this was my first function that I had organised for my company so the pressure was on…you exceeded all my expectations…the way you read the crowd was nothing short of amazing…you had each of us at one point or another on the dance floor!

Thank you so much…I cannot wait to host another function now because I know that the DJ Entertainment will be taken care of professionally. Have a lovely Christmas.

Oakfild Farm Wedding Muldersdrift - Simone

The most heartfelt thank you DJ Nelo for making our fairy tale wedding utterly unforgettable.

DJ Nelo is unbelievably versatile and perfected the playlist to suit my and my husband’s taste, our parents’ taste, and the Portuguese side of the family’s preferences. What was most exciting was that the dance floor was absolutely PACKED throughout the entire evening and everyone who attended commented on what a party the evening was. Thank you DJ Nelo for your patience with a bride who stressed about everything and for putting me at ease. I am grateful to have been put in your highly capable hands.

You read the crowd exceptionally well and are truly talented. Seriously couldn’t have made a better choice than Dance Jam Entertainment.

A big thank you to DJ Nelo,

He did an amazing job at our wedding. This was his first jewish wedding, and he handled it professionally with little to no hiccups, even when things were changed on the itinerary at the last second, he adopted to the scenario flawlessly.

From the first time I spoke to him to the last time we spoke at the wedding, he was always professional. This wasn’t only my opinion on him , guest also mentioned that his reading of the crowd and choice of music was brilliant!!!! If I have any other functions, he will be my first choice.
