    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!

    Brian Kirk and The Jirks made our wedding absolutely spectacular. Our guests are still raving about them! They were so much fun!! They even learned a new song so my husband could surprise me while singing with them. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

    If I could give 100 stars I would

    Brian has done a few wedding for my family and it is ALWAYS the best time ever! The energy and fun they bring to every event is insane and was the highlight of our wedding! I love how interactive they are with guests and how well they can read a room with every song and situation. We loved them so much we added an extra hour of play time and had them travel 5 hours to us from out of state. They are truly the best of the best.
