The BestReviewed on 6/18/2013 Ally S
I initially chose Bryan George Music Services after reading so many amazing reviews. From the time we first contacted Bryan I was immediately impressed with his responsiveness. Bryan was so easy to work with, and actually spoke to me on the phone for quite some time just to make sure he got everything right. He organized my playlist so that certain songs were played at appropriate times throughout the evening. He essentially kept the entire wedding timeline on track in the most professional way. Our constantly packed dance floor and hearing people say that it was the most fun wedding they'd been to are both tell-tale signs that Bryan knows what he's doing. I would recommend Bryan to anyone looking for a DJ in this area.
Best DJ out there!Reviewed on 7/08/2013 Kara T
Absolutely awesome. Chose Bryan George based on my Godmother's referral and he pulled through big time. From our first conversation Bryan was helpful and responsive. He gave me suggestions on cake cutting songs when I had no idea what to play and he helped organize our whole reception in my parent's backyard. He helped us figure out all the logistics. We gave some ideas on what we did and did not want played and he nailed it. Everyone had so much fun dancing and said the music was amazing. Bryan made the whole thing work. Couldn't be happier!
Excellent DJ Services!Reviewed on 6/15/2013 Tracey Y
Bryan was great to work with from our initial contact all the way until the end of our wedding. He was very responsive and took the time to listen to our vision for our reception and also provided input regarding his past experiences that made our reception better. We had a non-traditional format to our ceremony and reception, and a lot of the evening's activity was driven by musical cues. Bryan was totally on board with everything and did a great job making sure things flowed well and didn't feel forced. We had several guests comment on how great Bryan was, and he was great at feeling out the crowd and playing what worked. I would definitely recommend Bryan George Music Services!
Christian with Bryan George Music was amazing - he was so nice and great to work with! We had so many compliments from our guests about the music. Majority of our guests stayed until the end of the very last song because of how great the music was! My husband and I were thoroughly impressed with our entire experience with Bryan George Music and would recommend their company and especially Christian 110%! Thanks again for helping to make our special day even more amazing!
The most important thing you need to know about Bryan is that he focuses on understanding exactly what you're looking for and then delivers that experience to you. He was very responsive to any questions we had with quick turnaround times and helpful advice regarding song selection for different parts of the evening (cake cutting, father/daughter dance, etc). Although his advice was great, he didn't try to impose his ideas on us. It was clear his goal was to make the night all about us and what we wanted (which isn't necessarily the case with a lot of wedding vendors we found). Thanks Bryan!
Bryan George Music was a great vendor to work with for planning our wedding. Bryan was super quick to respond to emails, sent a helpful template for walking us through all the music we needed to pick, and caught all of our last minute changes. Our DJ on the day of, DJ Ramses, was super friendly and did a great job mixing all of the music we selected, friends' requests, and some tunes of his own choosing. I would highly recommend Bryan George Music!
We absolutely loved working with Bryan George and his company. He was very professional, respectful and such a pleasure to work with. We had Bryan as our DJ and our wedding reception was amazing. Bryan did not only run the entire reception flawlessly, but he also could feel the mood of the crowd and played the perfect songs all evening long. We had so many compliments of how great our reception was! A big thanks to Bryan for that! We also hired two string musicians through Bryan's company to play in our ceremony. They were amazing and a pleasure to work with. We totally recommend working with Bryan and his company and would do it all over again! They are great!
Bryan was a joy to work with. He not only was very responsive, but he adapted to many last minute requests and ensured that everything went off without a hitch. He was extremely welcoming and had no problems working with a gay couple. The music was phenomenal and everyone was dancing until the very end and did not want it to stop. He certainly knows his music and had the flexibility to work the transitions seamlessly to keep the party going. We could not be more pleased with the service and final product. We would definitely recommend Bryan George Music for your DJ Services. He and his colleagues provided a fabulous photobooth experience for our guests, who kept Nicholas busy the entire night. The lighting was fabulous. Bryan helped make our night one to remember! You cannot go wrong working with Bryan.
Ramses from Bryan George Music DJ'ed my wedding and reception, and he was flawless. Bryan called us a week or so before the wedding and ironed out all of the details (clearly he has experience with weddings, because he brought up suggestions we would have never thought of). After, he sent us samples of the songs we had agreed on to make sure we had the correct versions. The day of the wedding, Ramses arrived right on time and was already almost set up when we arrived. He met with our officiant to work everything out and was ready to go well before start time. He helped pace the ceremony wonderfully, and then it was party time! He kept a great party atmosphere. He was certain to play all of the songs we had pre-requested (and spaced them out nicely). When deciding on the rest of the playlist, he clearly kept all of our requests in mind, so the rest of the playlist fit in perfectly. My aunt could not wait to get a copy of the playlist for herself! Overall, I cannot recommend Bryan George Music enough. Using this company helped ease the pressure of my wedding day.
We loved that during the reception, guests were already complimenting us on the great music and dancing. Once the first people hit the dance floor, they didn't stop until the night was over (and even chanted "one more song" because no one wanted it to end). Bryan was fantastic. He walked us through every minute of the night, had every song we wanted, made modifications to songs as requested and kept the party going by reading the crowd. Absolutely stress free; he's your best choice.
My husband and I had the great pleasure to work with Bryan George Music Services, specifically DJs Bryan and Christian. Bryan and his team were professional, responsive, experienced, and friendly; and it showed at our wedding back in August 2015. DJ Christian was the performing DJ at our wedding and he did a wonderful job. He was able to ensure that guests were dancing and having a ball throughout the whole night... which was a major feat, since we had 200 guests of all ages and national backgrounds. I love how Bryan George Music Services was able to bring my Arab heritage and my husband Italian American heritage together and reflect it so smoothly throughout the wedding. They also had a great business appraoch of communicating early with us to see our dislikes and likes, the must haves, etc. If you are looking for a DJ, look no further, Bryan and his team are the Creme De La Creme!
After interviewing several DJs for our wedding in August, we came to the conclusion that Bryan George was the one for us to provide the music for our reception – and it proved to be the right decision. First of all, working with Bryan was a pleasure. He has a very pleasant manner of dealing with clients and was very responsive to our numerous questions – and he actually returned phone calls! He was very organized, obviously from years of experience, and provided forms that made it easy for us to think through the music we wanted for every aspect of the reception to the entrance of the bride and groom, bridesmaids, groomsman, father/daughter dance, etc. And he provided helpful suggestions and was very accommodating when we made changes. We made an unusual request for a certain kind of ethnic music for a particular dance– Bryan went beyond the call of duty to help us find exactly the music we wanted for the dance, and it was a tremendous success. The bottom line is that he kept people on the dance floor all during the reception. It was a mixed crowd of older (50-80) people and a younger crowd consisting of the bride and grooms friends, who were in their 20s and 30s. It was also a mixed crowd ethnically with people of several nationalities. And Bryan played music from the classic 60s-70s to hi-hop, or whatever was current for the younger group, as well as ethnic music such as Arabic and Spanish. Consequently, people were on the dance floor constantly and we received many compliments from friends and family that, “It was the most fun we have ever had at a wedding.” (As an aside, the wedding ceremony was outside and the instrumentalists were having trouble setting up the keyboard, amplifier, speakers, microphones, etc. and Byran was asked to help. He willingly pitched in and sorted everything out quickly and professionally, which is indicative of his overall approach to make doing whatever is necessary to make an event successful.) Obviously, we do not hesitate to recommend Bryan George to anyone planning a wedding/reception or any other event requiring a DJ.
Our guests (of all ages) keep saying 'your music was great!' and we are thrilled to have found Bryan. We had a very limited 'must play' list, but if if could do it again we would play every song that Bryan played that night! His professionalism, flexibility and great music selections fit the style of our wedding and our musical tastes perfectly! He did a great job mixing in our 'must play' songs with other great ones, keeping guests on the dancefloor and making a fun night! He did not play anything cheesy and did a great job with announcements; he was flexible when we left a few minutes later than planned! He helped us create the timeline of the night and was helpful in planning (With a few phone calls). His cocktail hour selections were perfect for our historic venue. Bryan also coordinated our ceremony music: The Centennial springs quartet and we were equally pleased. We didn't have a chance to meet in advance of the wedding but their coordinator was great on the phone and we were thrilled with the music the day of the wedding. I did not have songs in mind for the ceremony and they were tremendously helpful in finding the 'right' songs. It was the perfect compliment to an outdoor ceremony. Bryan's coordination of their arrival and details was an additional 'plus' that took a load off our shoulders in planning and day of coordination.
Bryan was awesome! He was very friendly and easy to work with. He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long, which is exactly what we wanted. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ!
We had Bryan DJ for our wedding reception, and were very pleased with the services he provided! He did a great job reading the crowd and playing songs that engaged everyone at the wedding. In addition to the day of, Bryan had a planning call with us beforehand, to help us plan what we were looking for music wise, the timing we were looking for, and just overall logistics so that everything ran smoothly and did not require a lot of decisions to be made during the reception. We are very happy with our choice in DJ and would recommend him to others!
Bryan George Music was an amazing DJ service for our wedding!!! I felt very well prepared going into the big day thanks to Bryan's immediate attention to all of my emails and the long, detailed discussion i had with DJ Ramses before the wedding. We filled out a detailed questionnaire conveniently online beforehand which provided our DJ with all of the plans my fiance and I had then we held an hour long conference call to discuss any questions Ramses had for us (including all name pronunciations!). My fiance and I were very particular about the songs we wanted (some that were not on the suggested lists) and the timing and Ramses worked hard to make them happen. Due to the weather we had to use some of my Plan B for ceremony set up but our music was still perfect and I LOVED the selection played during the reception! DJ Ramses played everything on our requested list and i was so pleased! Thanks to their attention to detail going into the big day (keeping me worry-free!) and the way they kept the dance floor full, i would definitely recommend Bryan George Music to everyone!!
Bryan and the team at Bryan George Music Service were an absolute dream to work with for our wedding ceremony and reception. For the ceremony we hired a string trio and for the reception, Bryan worked as the DJ to ensure the music was perfect for our big day. Bryan is talented, hardworking, and went above and beyond on numerous occasions, including when he personally edited the version of our first dance song. He also helped created one of the most memorable moments of the wedding when he pulled off a surprise song for the groom’s cake cutting. At every moment during the day, Bryan was there to help. A consummate professional and a pleasure to work with, I fully recommend going with Bryan and his team for your wedding ceremony and reception. You will not be disappointed. Thank you so much Bryan for making our day what it was! Excellent job!
There is so much to choose from when you are getting married in D.C. that we based our DJ choice off of reviews, prices, and how we felt when we spoke with the company. Bryan George Music services was a perfect decision! They were extremely responsive and attentive to all of our inquiries. Christian was our DJ at the wedding and he absolutely KILLED IT!! Our entire reception spent the majority of the time on the dance floor. Christian did an awesome job at mixing old and new music (per our request), keeping the timeline, ensuring he had all the music we requested, and never letting the guests get bored. I would recommend Bryan George Music services time and time again!
Bryan was truly great to work with from our initial contact all the way until the our wedding day. He was extremely responsive over email and phone, and took the time to listen to our "creative music vision" for the reception. We had somewhat of a non-traditional format to our wedding reception and the venue layout, and a lot of the evening's activity was driven by musical cues from our DJ Rich. The dance floor was packed the entire night and our guests had a great time... I would definitely recommend Bryan George Music Services!
Bryan was very responsive and always answered our questions promptly and thoroughly. Bryan was not our DJ at the wedding, however DJ Christian did an outstanding job at our wedding and we were so happy with him!! Everyone had an awesome time and the music was definitely one of the reasons. Christian knew exactly what song to play to get the crowd up and dancing. He was an excellent DJ!
Great DJ!Reviewed on 2/12/2015 Erin G
The worst thing to happen at a wedding is that no one dances, which was not a problem for us at all! Bryan is awesome!! He had everyone up and on the dance floor all night long, which is exactly what i wanted. He played all the songs we wanted to hear, and did an amazing job of reading the crowd and keeping everyone excited. Highly recommend. This was my second experience having bryan as a DJ, as he had done my SIL wedding a few years ago and that was fabulous as well!
Army Navy Country Club Wedding 1/10/15Reviewed on 1/16/2015
We had Bryan DJ our wedding ceremony and reception in the ballroom at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA. He did a great job, and was extremely professional and easy to work with. The music for the ceremony was exactly what we asked for and the music for the reception was perfect; it was exactly what we had envisioned.
Best of the best (11.29.14 wedding)Reviewed on 12/09/2014 Jordan M
Bryan was absolutely fantastic. From initially working with our budget, to answering all our questions and helping us get organized, and then most importantly his performance the day of our wedding; he couldn't have been a better pick for us. He was extremely professional, but also very friendly and personable. He did everything we asked of him and executed it all perfectly the day of. He did it all with a smile on his face and was extremely low maintenance in terms of needing things from us or getting questions answered. The day of, he struck a perfect balance of speaking and just playing music (mostly just playing music per our request) and kept the dance floor packed at all times by reading the crowd and reacting the way great DJs do. Basically anything we asked of him, he did and did it perfectly. We very strongly recommend Bryan if you're looking for a DJ for your wedding (or any other event).
Wonderful!Reviewed on 12/05/2014 Lindsey C
Bryan George was wonderful for our October 12, 2014 wedding. A great DJ was pretty high up on our list of important factors of our wedding and Bryan did a great job. We were excited to have Bryan himself DJ for us and the music flowed great. We actually had our guests submit music requests on their RSVP cards, and Bryan was able to incorporate all of the music suggested throughout the cocktail hour and reception. All in all, it was a wonderful experience!
Fantastic ServiceReviewed on 11/25/2014 Marcus D
My wife and I are not "music" people, so though we appreciate good music, we don't know a lot about it. We also consider ourselves introverts, so the thought of a loud and crazy DJ was nerve wracking when it came to determining who would DJ our wedding. After doing some research online, we narrowed down our search to Bryan. He was quick to respond to emails and met with us soon after. He showed up on time, had great handouts to provide to us and it was obvious he was very knowledgeable about what to do. As soon we left our first meeting with him we knew he was our guy. We spoke with Bryan a few times via email before the wedding but about a week or two out, my wife and I got the typical wedding jitters and wanted to meet with Bryan face-to-face again just to make sure we were on the same page. Again, Bryan was great about sitting down with us and calming our nerves; his experience shows! The day of the wedding, Bryan showed up on time and was dressed appropriately. His selection of music was spot on (my wife said over and over during the event how happy she was with what he was playing). Bryan didn't make the show about him but instead remained by his table and only spoke up when we had agreed we needed announcements made. Of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding day, Bryan was our favorite. We cannot recommend him enough.

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. This past February, I married my beautiful wife, Danielle. Together, we handle the day to day operations of the business and absolutely love what we do!
