Meet Your DJ

Hi there! I'm Brian and I've been a DJ & MC for 20 years now. This picture above is my beautiful daughter and I finally dancing our father/daughter dance on Sept 13, 2020 at her wedding, which was sadly postponed from May 23 due to covid. And if there is any DJ that understands the importance of moments like this, it's me. I will always treat the introduction of this dance with care and poise. It's not "just another dance". It's important. It's monumental. It's emotional. It's one of the two best moments for your dad that day. The other one was when he walked you down the aisle to your new husband. So yes, this is super important to him. And I'm certain it's important to you too.

So after 20 years of introducing/watching father-daughter dances take place, I finally got my own! ❤️

Behind this big beard is a guy who absolutely loves what he does, and whose clients love what I do. I would love to bring that same positive energy, personalization, unmatched level of creativity and professionalism to your celebration. What I do goes far beyond just pushing the play button. Music is very important, yes. But if you only want music, then we probably aren't a good match. However, if you want someone who will be actively involved, facilitating your celebration as your MC, reception coordinator and DJ, allowing you to relax and just soak up the day, then I would love to speak with you! So let's chat!

Let me share with you how it all comes together on wedding day:

Planning

It all starts with your own personal online planning portal. Then 6-8 weeks out, together we will create the timeline for your reception as well as many other details, at our planning meeting. This groundwork will allow me to facilitate things seamlessly, and without worry on your wedding day. Your reception can also have many personal touches, if you so wish, starting with the Grand Entrance, and even have me share your Love Story with everyone just before your first dance! I will go into greater detail about this at our consultation.

Production

This is all of the personal prep & rehearsing that I will do ahead of time preparing things for your wedding day, so that your celebration goes off without a hitch! All you have to do is show up, take it all in, and enjoy! No stress!

Presentation

As your MC, I will speak on your behalf and keep things moving so that you two, your families and all your guests can kick back and enjoy the biggest party you'll ever throw! As your DJ, I will honor your playlist, and nothing from your do not play list will be played. I will get your dance floor rockin' & keep the pulse moving with my creative mixing & blending! And to top it off, there is no worry of unsightly equipment, as my setup is always very clean and professionally presented. And finally, all my music is edited for language. I only own clean versions. Your celebration is safe with me!

Care to know more?

I am a professionally trained MC. I have been through many of the MarBecca MC Workshops and Love Story Workshops, where I honed my skills as a Master of Ceremonies & Storyteller. I have also been through The Professional Process, which was focused on the planning process with my couples. And finally I have also been through The Entertainment Experience, a workshop that focuses on how to avoid potential problems at weddings by planning things in a way so they are a non-issue. I also spent 6 years in Toastmasters, honing my speaking skills.

My wife Lori and I have two "kids" (actually not kids anymore - grown and out on their own now). I have been a drummer for more than three quarters of my life (which plays into how I mix music). A passion for music and entertaining at weddings is why I do what I do as a full time DJ. So if you are looking for a DJ that will truly care about you, your vision, and the success of your big day, then it's as simple as just putting your day into my hands and letting me take care of you! So again, let's do this!!

Now, enough about me...let's talk about you!

"When beginning our wedding planning process, we were dreading the thought of hiring a DJ because many of the DJs we’ve had experience with in the past have been what we call “hype men” and it just wasn’t our vibe. When we met Brian, he alleviated all of our fears relating to that and he showed us that he had a lot of experience and so much knowledge and was very passionate about his work. He was very professional while also being personable and easy to communicate with. Brian helped to lay out our entire timeline for our ceremony and reception and was a major help in ensuring the day went smoothly."
