How does your business stand out?

I truly believe it's the passion for our work that sets us apart. Let's be honest, anyone can play music, we actually engage your guests.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

At the end of the reception when the bride and groom or their guests say how awesome we were :) After 28 years it still gives me a high.

    Sweet 16 DJ and photo booth
    We hired B&B DJ and photo booth for our daughters Sweet 16. They were awesome!! DJ Ben was enthusiastic, energetic and had everyone including my mother, with her oxygen and walker, dancing all night!!! The laser lights he used were a big hit with the kids! The photo booth came with an amazing amount of props and was loved by the kids and the adults. I would hire this company again without a doubt. I am still getting calls from parents raving about the great time their kids had!! I cannot thank Rick and his team enough for making Amanda's party such a huge success!!

    Thanks for the kind words Kylie. For insurance purposes, I can't hold a chair or stool for a child. Can you imagine if they would fall. The photo booth instructor should have told the kids to get their parents but if they were too little maybe the message wasn't received. Thanks again for having us :)

    I used B & B Light and Sounds DJs for my wedding on June 18, 2016. Rick was so helpful with my timeline to ensure everything ran smoothly. He went above and beyond and was overly helpful! I sent him a list of both dinner and dancing songs I wanted to hear. Some of the songs were not your standard "top hit" songs, but unknown smaller bands. Our DJ Dennis found these songs and played all of them! I was overjoyed!!! Dennis kept the evening flow moving perfectly thrown dances, cake cutting, toasts, etc. FLAWLESS!!! Everyone enjoyed him and I just couldn't have been happier! B & B was so punctual, helpful, professional and FUN! I recommend them 100%!

    The DJ was wonderful he allowed us to change up the order of things but still kept us on track to get everything we needed accomplished. I would absolutely hire them again for any venue I would have. Barbara & Michael Rokosz

    We used Rick Bean's dj and photo booth services for our wedding this past June 13, 2015. Our wedding was a mixed wedding, Spanish and American, so the DJ played both kinds of music. He was very nice and wanted to make everyone happy including myself and the groom. The photo booth assistants were also great. Very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend B&B light and sound. Thanks guys for making our night awesome!!

    Thank you sooooooooooooo much Megan for using us :) Mark Still was your DJ and I'm glad you enjoyed his work. I'm also glad you enjoyed our photo booth team. I hope you and Felipe have a wonderful life together :)

    Rick was very helpful in arranging a photobooth for our event (11th/12th grade prom at a small school). He communicated with me promptly and was very courteous. He sent two attendants the night of the event who were also fantastic. The students really enjoyed the props and the photos are a great way to remember the night.

We can't thank you enough and will definitely be recommending to our friends and family!!

    They did a fantastic job with my nieces sweet 16. We had their photo booth with video message recorder. There was a line all night! Teenagers could not get enough of it. Cannot remember the attendants name skinny guy, medium height but he was wonderful with the kids very kind, patient and helpful! I think he's an asset to the company and a hard worker as he was on his feet all night! Would definately use again and recommend to anyone and everyone! Thanks B&B! Excellent job!!
    Rick B. Mar 18, 2015

    Thank you Elizabeth. So glad the booth was a huge hit. Patrick is a new member of our staff and is learning the ropes and was in control of your event. Jimmy was there to help him if he got stuck on something :) I'll make sure to pass on the compliment. Hope to hear from you again!!!

    This company is absolutely fantastic! They were able to DJ my school's first dance in seven years and the students could not stop raving about how fun all three DJs were. They were very prepared for the dance and all of the songs were fun and appropriate. I highly recommend this service for any school function!

    Rick supplied a photobooth for our Father-Daughter dance event. The booth was a HIT with the kids and the dads as well. The props were plentiful and the kids had a blast trying them on. Overall, I would say my experience was a very good one. Rick is truly professional while maintaining a friendly demeanor-not something you find when dealing with all businessmen.
    Rick B. Feb 9, 2015

    Thank you Michele for giving us a chance to prove our photo booth is the best. The daddies and daughters at St. Michael's took close to 300 images in just two hours. I'd say they loved it. I hope this is just the first of many events we'll do together :)

    what a pleasure it was working with rick and his staff. we needed to find a dj for our daughter's sweet 16 party. i was a bit apprehensive finding someone using the internet and thumbtack but rick made us feel comfortable from the start. he was very courteous and professional and definitely in tune to current music. he was in constant communication with us on evey detail, from dress attire to what time to arrive, etc. he accomodated our daughter's every wish and played songs from a list she provided, including some last minute changes which rick so graciously made the night before. at his suggestion we rented the photo booth for a few hours which ended being a huge success. the kids are still commenting on what a fun party it was. thank you rick for making our daughter's party fun and loaded with memories. it was great working with you and your staff and i will definitely recommend you to others.

    Rick Bean DJ'd at our Winter Formal and did an amazing job! He played the music of the time that got the kids dancing. Rick even jumped in and danced with the kids! He had an amazing personality and was great to work with; keeping to deadlines and having everything set-up on time. I would reccomend B&B Light and Sound for any event!

    B & B Light and Sound was a great price for an absolutely perfect pick if music for our wedding. My husband is very picky about music, and they accommodated his tastes perfectly. The best thing that they did was when they asked for a group picture with everyone, and then played 'Shout' to get everyone dancing. Excellent!

    Rick B. Nov 25, 2014

    I'm glad it was a blast! The printer needs to be a certain distance away from the booth itself. Maybe the area was tight and my team had to move the printer closer than usual. Thanks for the feedback Jessica and thanks for having our booth.

    Everything went exactly as described in our contract. This business promised KidsBop music for an elementary school 2 hour Halloween party and they totally delivered. I didn't have to worry about bad song lyrics, inappropriate language, faulty sound or light system. Everything was perfect, punctual, fun and effortless for me as soon as I hired B &B Light and Sound. Best and easiest choice I made as party organizer. Highly recommend, hire them and you will have a job well done.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I go to many trade shows and read DJ magazines.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I went with a friend 30 years ago to a pool party he was asked to DJ and I was hooked. He made $50 and we ate like kings for the next few days :)
What types of customers have you worked with?
WEDDINGS, WEDDING AND MORE WEDDINGS
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I did a conga line at a wedding and had the grandfather lead the conga line. He was 90 and the bride was so pleased I showed him extra attention.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Meet everyone in person. Make sure they don't live in a van down by the river :) Look at reviews on line. Get references.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Very few DJ's do it for a living like I do. Most have other jobs and do this as a side job. Who would you rather have at your wedding a full time DJ or a part time DJ? That's an easy answer.
