Frank has been DJing ever since he was in 7th grade. Frank was the one with the jam box on field trips taking requests and rockin’ the bus. Randy Bennett knew Frank way back in the day during the times when there used to be record stores on every corner. Both of them ran independent stores in the Raleigh area. Frank was born in Raleigh and grew up in Durham. Later, he played drums in a high school rock band. For college, he decided to go to NC State where he would DJ at clubs and fraternity parties. Asked why he wanted to be a DJ, he writes, “I always loved music and wanted to get everybody dancing. I was the DJ because I always had the music.”
Frank decided to join the Joe Bunn team and has racked up an impressive resume of weddings and parties. He has several hobbies include restoring boats, sailing, movies, and daily dance parties with his four young children. Frank comments, “I look forward to making your event memorable. I like having the hard-to-find music that you want to hear”.

Frank at Bunn DJ was awesome – we had a great party and he kept the crowd dancing all night. The planning process was very easy (both online and in talking to Frank in advance). Would highly recommend Bunn DJ.
Frank Meldau of the Bunn DJ Company was AWESOME. He absolutely killed it. He introduced us to the planning software that we would use to input all of our bridal party data, toasts, timeline, etc. The same software also helped develop a playlist of definite songs, maybe’s, and don’t plays. He took the songs we requested and added in the perfect complimentary songs. EVERYONE got up to dance. My 70 year old grandfather was shaking it next to my 21 year old sister. We had an absolute blast. I can’t say enough. Your guests remember the food and they remember the music, and my friends and family haven’t stopped telling us about what an awesome time they had. He’s a class act and was a direct contribution to a lifetime of memories.
He was very approachable, kind, willing to hear our requests, professional and super fun! Using the Bunn DJ online portal was super helpful. It was an easy way to keep up with our requests and timeline for the reception. We enjoyed working with Frank and he was AWESOME at our reception. He played the songs we requested and added to our “Must Play” list while at the same time able to “read” the crowd as the night went on. We had a packed dance floor the entire night! We are so thankful for Bunn DJ and Frank! If I had to rewind, and do it all over again, we would hire Bunn DJ without a doubt in my mind. Out of all the things we did to prepare for our wedding day, Frank was our most fun investment!
Frank Meldau was AWESOME! My wife and I were married in Durham but live out of state, so when it came to planning we really needed vendors we could trust. Frank made himself available for calls any time we needed him, and Bunn DJ Company’s ceremony and reception planning tools made everything a breeze. We had some concerns about how to structure our reception so that music was played that every age demographic could enjoy, and Frank did an amazing job getting EVERYONE on the dance floor all night, even the bride’s 85 year old grandmother. I cannot recommend Bunn DJ Company, and specifically Frank Meldau, enough.
Frank catered to our every need and made our reception so much fun. All of our guests have commented on how much fun they had. If you want to bring out the youth in your crowd and have people racing to the dance floor hire this DJ.
Frank at Bunn DJ did an amazing job. We told him the type of music we like and he took it from there. We and our guests had a lot of fun dancing and I would highly recommend him!
When we started planning, my husband was very eager to choose the music. Since he couldn’t actually DJ the wedding himself, he wanted a DJ that would work with him to create a very customized list of music. He worked with Frank to create detailed lists of songs to play and those to “not play.” Frank was very professional and was able to read the crowd and keep everyone dancing for 3 straight hours. He did a great job of having songs that would appeal to all ages and generations.
We had Frank for our DJ. He was absolutely great to work with and answered all of the questions we had! On the day of the wedding, pretty much every person was out dancing on the dance floor from the time the music started to the last song. Even the people working at the reception venue told us they had never seen a reception where this many people were dancing!! I’m still getting texts and messages on how good the DJ and music was.
We hired Frank as our wedding DJ. He was extremely professional, personable, and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. We decided to trust his knowledge rather than create a long list of songs we wanted, and everyone complimented the song choices. He also did a great job of making sure the music wasn’t too loud during dinner and during the earlier part of the reception when people were still mingling. He handled all of our requests flawlessly, including cutting off songs early, and dealing with several special additional little “events” throughout the evening. We had a great experience.
Frank was the best! He was so kind and accommodating and our guests raved about our playlist!!!
