"My whole life
has been
about music."

Bruce Fagan’s ear for music was discovered before he ever had a lesson. When he was only four years old, Bruce could hear a song once and play it on piano. He particularly enjoyed "showing off" in front of his older brother's piano teacher.

Inspired by “Uncle” Ron Nelson, the music counselor at Sesame Day Camp, Bruce got the “bug” for performing. He took up guitar and by age 14 was performing at coffee-houses  and other venues throughout the area.

He performed with The Don Dornay Orchestra beginning in 1974 and led a second band for that office. In 1980 he left to go out on his own as The Bruce Fagan Ensemble, for weddings, bar mitzvahs and other social events.

In 1994, he added deejays to enhance the band. Starting with CDs then moving to mini-disks and now – all mp3s, Bruce’s massive digital library includes over 10,000 tunes. He uses the latest professional deejay software to allow for previously unheard of versatility.

Bruce also performs for parties as a “power single”, providing a full, “live” sound using digital keyboards.

Since 1968, Bruce has been presenting musical programs for adults and children.

For adults, he performs on piano or keyboard presenting a cabaret act with music ranging from Broadway, swing and jazz to rock’n’roll and pop music – all blended with humorous songs, anecdotes and audience interaction.

For the children’s shows Bruce uses keyboards and deejay setup, combining dance music with kids’ songs tailored to each group from pre-school to middle school age. He regularly does over 50 performances each summer at day and overnight camps from Connecticut to Maryland.

Bruce Fagan has performed for events at virtually every major country club and hotel in the Philadelphia area. He even had the honor of performing for vocalist, Tony Bennett, and for Peter Nero, Musical Director of the “Philly Pops”.

Now, with thousands of parties behind him, Bruce still loves the thrill of entertaining and looks forward to providing the music for YOUR party too!
