    A++++++ Wedding Band!!!

    Brian Kirk and the Jirks were the only band we ever considered for our wedding, and we could not be happier with that decision. The wedding was the best night of our lives and that is mostly in part due to this band!! The dance floor was packed the entire night, and all of our guests told us that it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to. We've been seeing Brian at his local shows for 10 years now, but nothing even compares to the show that they put on at a wedding!! 10/10 recommend to anyone getting married! The band makes the night!

    Cant be beat, 4 couples tried to book on stage after

    Brian Kirk and the Jirks made our wedding a 1000 out of 10. We have been to tons of weddings and nothing even comes close. The amount of people who had said to us that the band was incredible and one of the best they have ever seen is off the charts. THANK you so much. If you can book Brian, book them before you even have a venue, then figure it out!

    Brian Kirk & the Jirks's reply:

    Hi Bryan,

    Non negotiable wedding band

    BRIAN KIRK & THE JIRKS WAS THE ONLY WEDDING BAND WE EVER CONSIDERED!!! My now husband and I picked our wedding date on Brian's availability and I am so glad we did. After going to a few weddings with them as the band it was a non negotiable from minute one. We wanted to have the time of our lives and have all our family and friends talking about our wedding forever. Brian truly didnt disappoint. EVERY person after our wedding said THAT WAS THE BEST BAND EVER!! We are so thankful we were able to still have our 2020 wedding and couldnt imagine it without Brian Kirk & the Jirks. THANK YOU BRIAN FOR EVERYTHING AND MAKING OUR DAY SUPER MEMORABLE. We look forward to supporting you in Hoboken and Jenks soon!
