Born in Calgary, Alberta and raised in the Ice Box of the Nation International Falls, MN; Brian Glad aka DJ BGLAD has climbed the ranks of DJ and entertainment stardom to become one of the top entertainers in the Twin Cities. His success, however, didn't happen overnight.

It was during his time at college that Brian got his first taste of the professional music entertainment at a local night club by 1st off getting discovered working at a music store. From there, Brian started hosting small parties, weddings, sweet sixteen parties, and even the occasional school dance. No job was too small, and Brian used these events as a way to build up his technical repertoire, until he decided to break out.

After graduating college, he moved to Minneapolis, MN to officially launch his brand as DJ BGLAD :o) one of the most sought out DJ鈥檚 in the Twin Cities. He definitely knows how to create magic with music! He鈥檚 also quite the illusionist with cards.
As one of the Twin Cities hidden top entertainers, DJ BGLAD has proven his talents across the Midwest. He has traveled all the way down to Bolivar, MO up to Winnipeg, MB to Bismarck, ND across to Houghton, MI. His talents have energized many of the Midwest鈥檚 private parties and events, including companies like Target and Best Buy. DJ BGLAD鈥檚 experiences have allowed him to keep every event entertaining, innovative and exciting.

His unique style of mixing Hip Hop with 80's, Rock, Funk and House music have set DJ BGLAD apart. If music was a roller coaster; you鈥檙e on it when he鈥檚 mixing; if there are rules; he breaks them. Renowned for his witty and well thought out mixes, BGLAD has the ability to feel the beat and pulse of the crowd like so few DJ's can. He is a favorite at most of the hottest and exclusive events in Minnesota.

Amazing DJ! He can do it all!

Brian was such an amazing DJ, and he was pretty much our all-around entertainment for the entire evening! He was our officiant, magician, MC, and DJ! Brian made the entire process leading up to the wedding simple but captured all of the details, so that on our wedding day we didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing! The ceremony he gave was perfect! He took time to get to know the two of us to make it a unique and personalized ceremony, had some fun with the audience, and made the whole process a lot less nerve racking! During our cocktail hour he walked around and did magic tricks with the guests and then later in the evening made balloon animals for the kids! (Such an awesome touch, the kids really loved it!) Brian played great music all night, played songs that kept people from all ages on the dance floor! Brian made coordinating all of these aspects, from the ceremony to the final song, simple and flawless. Thank you so much for making our entire wedding a unique and unforgettable experience for not only ourselves but for our guests as well!

Brian is an AMAZING DJ! He was the DJ for my best friend's wedding and my sister's wedding so naturally I had to have him for my wedding! Brian is great to work with and really knows how to keep the party going! We have a rowdy group of family and friends and they all gave rave reviews about the energy of the night and the fun songs that kept everyone out on the dance floor!!
Brian is flexible when it comes to the packages that he offers also. We wanted a combo of the first and second package and easily came to an agreement on service and price. Brian took care of the music for our ceremony and our reception. He even said grace for us before dinner!
I would highly recommend DJ BGLAD to any bride and groom searching for the best DJ for their wedding!!

Brian is amazing! He filmed our wedding and brought such a fun energy to the shoot and day. He also created a wonderful clip of the entire day that made us all tear up. What he choose to put together was so breath taking that we will be able to keep forever. I would highly recommend using Brian.
