Brian was absolutely wonderful at our surprise party for my sisters 40th. Brian was amazing with communication and quick to reply which is so great when you don’t know the vendor and picking off just reviews. He is so friendly and personable. He played perfect music for our event. We sent a list and he play every song and then some! I cannot rave about how great Brian was. We were dancing on the dance floor all night long! Thank you Brian for making this even so amazing! HIRE BRIAN FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I understand a lot of people are on a budget and I keep my prices at a level people feel comfortable paying. Lower prices does not always equal inferior service.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to find out what the customer wants by phone calls and email. If it’s a wedding I email the customer a questionnaire for both of them to go over and fill out. I also like to do a face to face to go over the details.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been mixing sound for live music for the last 10 years and the last year or so have been using this knowledge as a DJ.
