    The best of all time !

    Brian Kirk & the Jirks is the absolute best in all aspects. They are extremely professional, kind, accommodating, and versatile. Each member of the band is incredibly talented and they are amazing entertainers. Whether they are playing at a bar, club, wedding, or other special event, they "kill it". We had them play at our 12/28/18 wedding and received an ample amount of comments that included words like "never seen a better band", "the most amazing time ever", "Wow, just WOW!". We recommend them to all of our friends and hope we have the opportunity to hire them for another one of our events in the future. Thanks a million, BKirk!

    Our guests were blown away!

    And we were too! We have been to a handful of Brian Kirk and the Jirk performances at various bars throughout the state, and knew without a doubt that we needed them for our wedding. They EXCEEDED all of our expectations - we knew they were awesome but they were even better than we could imagine! They are so engaging with the crowd, they really read the room and picked the best songs and were so fun to have leading the party. From start to finish they were great to work with, and they even learned our wedding song and played it perfectly. They helped us with recommendations for the reception, and made the process a breeze for us. We pretty much left the playlist up to them and no one left the dance floor. Not for one second. There is no doubt that BKJ is the best wedding band around. Our guests are still talking about them!

    Best wedding band ever!

    I can’t even express how awesome Brian Kirk and the Jirks are!!! They absolutely MADE the wedding the best party ever! The band coordinator was very easy to deal with in the planning. And we couldn’t have been happier with Brian and the rest of the band on the night of the wedding! He makes you feel like you’ve known him forever and totally leads the party! The band/music was the most important to me for the wedding, and therefore was our biggest splurge and it was 1000% worth it! You won’t regret hiring them (if you can find an available date, that is!!)
