Bryan was an amazing DJ, a pleasure to work with, and the most helpful person we could have asked for during the entire process.

My wife and I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion.

Bryan was the DJ at our wedding on August 5, 2017 and he was nothing short of fabulous. More than anything else, we were intent on having a fun celebration where people danced all night. Aside from our first dance, mother/son, and father/daughter dances, we left the music... Read More selections to Bryan and he did not disappoint. In the month since the wedding, people have continued to comment to us that they have never attended a wedding where the dance floor was packed all night long--everyone had fun. Bryan read the crowd well and picked songs that kept the party lively until the very end. Our nieces, our friends, and our older relatives all felt like the music was chosen just for them. Not only was Bryan great at the wedding, however, he was also instrumental in setting up the most perfect party. He was incredibly responsive via email and, when asked for input on the flow of the night, he provided excellent feedback based on his experience. He helped set the timeline for the night, which helped with the flow of the evening and maximized time for dancing. Bryan was exceptionally professional and helpful in every way he could be. We were grateful that Bryan also provided uplighting in our venue so we did not have to hire an additional vendor. Hiring Bryan was an outstanding decision and we cannot thank him enough for helping to create the most memorable party.

Everyone was up and dancing the entire time. It was hard to sit down to take a break because each song that was played was a jam! We requested that only clean versions of songs be played due to the ages of some of our guests, and Bryan complied. Everything went off without any problems. All names were pronounced correctly. The timing off all of the songs during the ceremony were on point. Bryan even cut songs and faded them out exactly when my husband and I wanted. Bryan also provided uplighting for our event in an amber color. It was beautiful and really helped with the overall feel of the decor for the wedding. I would highly recommend Bryan to everyone looking for a DJ.

I recently was married in Frederick, MD on New Year's Eve.

He DJ'd our friend's wedding a few years back so we knew he was... Read More great from the beginning! Throughout the planning phase, he was always responsive and very helpful. I have a very specific taste in music and came prepared with a list of songs that I wanted to play (100+ songs). Bryan very professionally and politely explained to me why some of my choices weren't best for the overall crowd as they wouldn't promote a dancing environment :-) I'm a tough person to convince but he definitely explained to me why my choices wouldn't work. Basically, he knows what he is doing and wanted to make sure my guests enjoyed themselves. Which was very important becuase our reception ran from 8:00 - 12:30 am! Bryan's music choices were great and kept everyone entertained throughout the night.

We also had some very distinct ethnic music requests, which he was happy to purchase and play on our behalf such as Lebanese Dabke music. He helped us come up with a full gameplan for the timing of reception events, but told us things never run on time but not to worry; he was completely adaptable when some events ran longer than expected and found a way to help get us back on track so that guests didn’t lose time on the dance floor! So many of our guests told us after the wedding how much they loved the dance music. They also commented on the very classy music played at the cocktail hour - Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck ... Bryan knows his stuff! We were extremely pleased with how our reception went, and we feel that huge credit for that is due to the phenomenal job by Bryan George. Thank you, Bryan! You made our day perfect!

I started Bryan George Music while at Villanova University in 2001. It grew out of my natural love for music, and my ability throw a good party! In 2004, I moved the company back to my hometown of DC, where it has grown into a leader in the wedding industry with a team of 10 top-notch professional wedding DJs. I've been a DJ for 15 years and have since won multiple awards from Washingtonian Magazine, Wedding Wire, The Knot, & Yelp. Two years ago, I married my beautiful wife, Danielle. Together, we handle the day to day operations of the business and absolutely love what we do!
