    Joy! Pure joy!

    I've seen BK&J in many venues over the years. Simply, they are never less than GREAT. The guests at my daughter's wedding were blown away by the talent, professionalism, spirit, and JOY in every one of the band's performers. Brian led the party flawlessly, always kept the attention on the newlyweds, played the music my daughter and son-in-law requested, and just always knew whatever it took to keep our guests engaged. And Brian could not have been nicer or more accommodating to work with. All I can say is thank you Brian and your team!

    The most amazing l night!!

    If you want have an amazing night and a band that will blow away your guests, then you need to book Brian Kirk and the Jirks. They are the best at what they do!! Our entire party was on the dance floor till midnight on a Sunday, wishing they could play more songs. We received soo many compliments as to how great they were. Brian is awesome as MC. He is interactive, entertaining, and the perfect balance as the head of the band and the MC for the night. The rest of the band is insanely talented. Their lead female vocalist Kristin even learned our first dance song and sang it beautifully. Their horn section cannot be compared. They interact with your guests and trust me, everyone will love it!! We wish we could get married and have them play for us all the time! They were the highlight of our night and our guests’ too. Thank you Brian and the rest of the band for being amazing at what you do and making our night so memorable. We recommend this band 10000%!!

    The BEST band ever

    If I could give this band 100 stars I would. Brian Kirk & The Jirks made our wedding; they had so much energy it was infectious! We had at least 50 people (not exaggerating) ask us where we found this band! They played all night, did an amazing job of getting and keeping everyone on the dance floor and were extremely talented. This band is an absolute must!
