Highly Recommend Bialek Music

We worked with Bialek's Music to celebrate our companies 23rd anniversary. From start to finish, they provided exceptional customer services, provided continuous updates, and coordination. They worked with us to ensure the event was what we were looking for and in the end it exceeded our exceptions. I would highly recommend Bialek Music.

Highly recommend Bialek鈥檚 Music!

Bialek鈥檚 Music & Entertainment was awesome to work with! From the inquiry process up to our wedding day, we experienced great professionalism from Robin, the co-owner. For our wedding, we booked the String Along Quartet, and Capital DJs. Both were amazing and made our wedding day come to life! Would definitely recommend both groups and this entertainment company to anyone planning an event!

Team

Ray Bialek
Ray Bialek
CEO

Bialek's Music was born in on July 11 1978, in my parents house in Silver Spring MD with a two-line phone, a copy machine, a typewriter, and a videocassette player that could show bands to clients, plus audio cassettes to be mailed out.

Today Bialek's Music is 42 years old, with an office in Rockville Md. and a leader in the industry for bands, DJ's, strings, photo booths, lighting and a variety of entertainment. It's a family business with daughter robin as General Manager and part owner and wife Rickie as secretary/treasurer., along with an additional 4 support staff.

The company books around 2,000 events per year from weddings, corporate events, and Bar Mitzvahs to openings of The New Spy Museum and The New Bethesda Hotel. I am proud that we also give back to the special events industry as I currently serve on the board of SESMA, and was President of ILEA from 1999-2000 and have been a member of NACE since 1989.
