    Dj Brian was exactly what we wanted

    DJ Brian Bender was exactly what we wanted and needed for our wedding. He played incredible jazz piano throughout our cocktail hour and reception, following with a brilliant mix of our wedding playlist. He knew exactly when to play the right songs and the vibe of our wedding flowed perfectly all night. He was kind and courteous in every exchange we had with him and we felt we received work above and beyond especially for the price, absolute bargain. Would recommend to anybody.

    Outstanding- can't recommend enough!

    Brian was so responsive, flexible, thorough, and detail oriented during planning our wedding. He is a professional and went above and beyond by visiting our event site, offering to MC, sending over lengthy song lists to choose from, offering his experienced advice, and setting up our Zoom for guests who could not attend. His band Time After Time was INCREDIBLE, our whole party was on their feet dancing the entire time. Brian really has a way of feeling the crowd and knowing what to play next and MC'ing in a way that didn't take over. I can't recommend them enough, and can't wait to hire them again when we have an occasion!

What do I like about Brian? Many things. He is a gifted musician. I've seen him at the cocktail hour, playing piano. I've seen him at community events playing the Melodica. He also plays tuba and trombone. He teaches music lessons as well. To top it off, he even has his own recording studio and record label. He's not just a DJ. He loves music deeply and it shows. He has a friendly, warm, kind way about him. He listens so couples and guests alike, as seen in the gallery above. Because Brian is a musician, he also offers live music and a band for your wedding. And lastly, he has a good sound system. A DJ can be the nicest and best in the world, but it means nothing if they have bad quality speakers. As a photographer, I notice these things, since I spend the night on the dance floor close to the speakers.
