I hired Brian and a second singer/ guitar player (but I forgot the other guy's name!) to play for a few hours at my wedding welcome party at Waredaca Brewery in Gaithersburg. Brian was awesome to work with. He arrived early and communicated well. He was flexible, punctual, professional, and just an all-around really nice guy to work with. As soon as we booked he sent a long list of songs for us to choose any special ones we liked, and said if we had any special requests let him know. He had a good variety of music, something for everyone. He has a great voice. He is very versatile, a truly talented and laid back musician. He even learned our wedding song and played it for us which was very sweet. I would definitely recommend Brian to anyone wanting to add some fun live music to their event. It was way better than just having a playlist. Everyone danced and sang, so fun!

I hired Brian for a multi-celebration party for Oct 19th. He was very accommodating and willing to work with me for some special requests I had for the performance. Brian, with Keni and Marty, sounded absolutely fantastic! Honestly, everyone at the party raved about their performance. All three were consummate professionals. There is no way I can thank Brian and the guys enough for making the party a huge success. They exceeded all of my expectations, all of the guests loved them, and I absolutely recommend Brian (either solo or with the band) to play at any will not be disappointed! I will definitely be hiring Brian again for our next big party. Brian, thank you so much for your patience with my requests and for really going out of your way to make sure your performance and the party were both fantastic and memorable. You went above and beyond and I very much appreciate it!

It was so easy working with Brian! He was professional, extremely accommodating ( there was a last-minute change in plan, in where the position the band would play from for the evening) and just made the evening a fun and entertaining one! Brian and Marty complemented each other and brought the fun, live element to our party that both us and our guests enjoyed thoroughly! Thank you Brian, thankyou Marty!!

Brian was amazing and so professional! He arrived early for set up and had all of his equipment with him. We had him for my daughter's 3rd birthday. He sang different genres of music and even learned some disney songs for our daughter. All of our friends and family raved about him. So glad we found him and we will DEFINITELY use him again!
