    Best Band. Period.

    Brian and team ROCKED our wedding. They absolutely killed the Horrah, all personal requests, and got the most people on their feet the entire wedding.

    More people were asking me about the band than anything else. Worth every penny.

    Kirk and the Jirks absolutely rocked our wedding!

    Why have a DJ like everyone else when you can have THE best band in NJ? It's been a month since our wedding and everyone is STILL raving about how amazing Kirk and the Jirks was. They literally ROCKED it. Brian and the band are the best it gets. They are so incredibly talented and really know how to own a room. They played music that appealed to all age groups, their song choices were so on point, and Brian was hilarious and fun on the mic. They are willing to learn songs as well --- they especially nailed our first dance songs. They were SO special. All 280 people at my wedding were literally on the dance floor the entire time. And those horns!!! There is seriously nothing like it. Absolutely fabulous. I already have a big group who wants to check the band out at the shore this summer!

    Brian and Nicole were so easy to work with the entire planning process as well. They were accommodating, caring, and super organized. They were always open to my ideas and always had great suggestions.

    I can't thank Kirk and the Jirk for making our 4/6 wedding at Park Chateau "the best wedding they've ever been to" in the words of all our guests. What a great time!!! I highly recommend this band to appeal to EVERYONE in the room. You won't be disappointed.

    They made our wedding

    Choosing Kirk and the Jirks as our band was the easiest decision we made!!! They absolutely made our day. We have been going to see them play for years, and we knew even before we were engaged that having them as our band was a must. They are beyond entertaining, professional, engaging. They had guests on the dance floor the entire night. We had numerous family and friends reach out to us after saying it was the best band they ever heard and couldnt believe how much fun they are. Highly recommend!!!!!!
