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.
Perfect!Reviewed on 11/24/2014
We had a great experience with Bryan George Music and our DJ! They are super easy to work with and Christian (our DJ) was fantastic. Several of the guests at the wedding told me that he was the best wedding DJ they had ever heard. They were extremely professional and so helpful during our planning process. It's so important to have a great DJ because they really control the flow of the entire reception. I would recommend Bryan George Music/ Christian to anyone!
Absolutely perfectReviewed on 11/23/2014 Jen G
I can't say enough about how great the Bryan George Music team was at our wedding. They started off with a planning worksheet that was very helpful in my planning. When I talked to them ahead of the event, it was clear that they were experienced and professional with weddings. They knew what songs to play, what people wanted, etc. At the wedding, they played every song we asked for and totally captured the mood we described before the event. Our guest gave us tons of compliments on the music. They also covered little details I never would have thought of, like having an extra person there who handled mics so we didn't have to put them back on the stands ourselves, and other little details that made the evening flow more smoothly. Everything they were involved in was perfect. I can't recommend them strongly enough.
Bryan George Music ServicesReviewed on 11/05/2014 Catherine R
Bryan George Music Services deejayed our wedding, and did an outstanding job from beginning to end. His booking process was easy, he provided a thorough template ahead of time to fill out ceremony music, cocktail hour music, wedding party intros, and must play/do not play songs. We then had a phone call ahead of the day to discuss everything and go over any final questions. Day of, he was great. The ceremony music was flawless, he customized the cocktail hour music around shows my husband and I have attended, and handled last minute changes with ease. The dancing portion of the evening was perfect, with guests of all ages on the dance floor. He did a terrific job flowing between songs from classics through contemporary. We got countless compliments throughout the evening and in the following days on how great the DJ was. We highly recommend Bryan George Music Services. He is professional, detail-oriented, and all around great at his job.
Best DJ Ever!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Kristy V
I am so happy to have chosen Bryan George Music Services for our wedding at St. Francis Hall. We booked right after our first conversation with Bryan because it was obvious he had the talent and experience that we were looking for! Not only were we right, but Bryan exceeded our expectations. He kept the energy high from cocktail hour to the bridal party intros until the very last song. He provided the right mix of music so that every generation was having a blast on the dance floor - which is exactly what we wanted! The entire night flowed seamlessly including the transitions to toasts and cake cutting. Beforehand, he was really invested in getting to know how we wanted the evening to transpire and helped with our timeline which contributed to the flawless evening. I can't thank him enough for his suggestions! He was so helpful and professional throughout the entire process which helped put me at ease. It was so clear he knew what he was doing. As any bride knows, wedding planning can be stressful but I knew the entertainment was in the right hands and that I didn't have to worry about it. My husband and I still get compliments on the music and we are thrilled that everyone had so much fun. The music is essential to creating the right vibe for your wedding, and Bryan nailed what we were looking for. You will be so happy you booked Bryan George Music Services! Thanks Bryan, for making our day so amazing and memorable!!
Definitely recommend for a wedding!Reviewed on 10/12/2014 Jeannette C
Bryan Georges was a fantastic DJ to work with. He is incredibly professional, organized and easy to work with. Definitely deserving of all the rewards they have received! I was a very disorganized bride, so I really appreciated Bryan Georges - they walked me through everything and made sure that we had addressed all the important things like length of our first dance song, how to pronounce everyone's names etc. We had DJ Dario and he was FANTASTIC! I made it really clear that I wanted this to be a fun dance party and DJ Dario made it happen. He played all the right songs and got the audience moving and we loved him! He was also so fun and nice... I would definitely want to work with him again. Thank you Bryan Georges and DJ Dario for making our wedding so memorable and fun!
Music & Service Made Memories!Reviewed on 8/27/2014 Ashley W
Recently married in Gaithersburg, MD we chose Bryan based solely on his positive online reviews. Not being from the DC/MD/VA area we were basically at the mercy of other people’s experiences…and fortunately for us his client’s testimonials are entirely truthful. I initially sent Bryan an email inquiry and not only did he respond promptly, but he called personally rather than send a reply email. I was immediately impressed with his customer service, and we had a lovely chat about our vision for our special day. Throughout future correspondence he remained as prompt and courteous as he had in our initial conversation. Ever since I was a little girl I had always dreamed of having a string ensemble play at my wedding, so we additionally hired his Centennial Strings ensemble. His musicians were just as professional, considerate, and attentive as Bryan. It was truly an honor and a pleasure working with all of them! My bride and I already knew exactly what songs and what vibe we were going for; and Bryan and the musicians worked with us down to every detail—from timing to editing song lengths for special dances, etc.—and it all ran smoothly and effortlessly. I’m sure that most engaged couples can agree that planning a wedding is a stressful and anxious process. But, in all honesty working with Bryan was not part of this stress. In fact, his constant professionalism and open communication was actually an enjoyable relief from the other stressors! If all wedding details were as fun, easygoing, and smooth as it was working with Bryan I would get married all over again…like every weekend! Ashley & Kris
Bryan George - Awesome DJ (Reception & Ceremony)Reviewed on 8/10/2014 Rachel Z
Bryan George rocks! If you’re looking for a DJ, you don’t need to look any further than Bryan. Bryan was not only the DJ for our wedding reception, but also provided the music for our wedding ceremony. He is an awesome DJ, and is also extremely professional, organized, and detail-oriented. It was extremely helpful that Bryan had wedding ceremony and reception prep forms for us to complete beforehand. Plus, Bryan held a call with us the week leading up to the wedding to ensure everything would run smoothly and he understood all of our special requests – and we had several of these for both the ceremony and reception. We had complete trust in Bryan, and everything ran smoothly…and our dance floor was packed the entire night! If you want the music portion of your wedding to be stress-free, choose Bryan!
Young, fun, and professional DJ!!!Reviewed on 7/03/2014 Megan M
Bryan was so organized and on top of everything. He was open to us picking a variety of songs but still threw in some other good dancing songs. He didn't miss a thing and kept the whole evening running smoothly. Bryan did a wonderful job letting people know what's going on but not being corny or obnoxious like other DJs. Super nice to guests and keeps in mind the tastes of the bride and groom. I loved having a younger, fun, and professional DJ like Bryan. You're the best, Bryan! Book him today!!!!!
5.31.14 WeddingReviewed on 6/24/2014 Jenna P
Our wedding was planned in 4 months and Brian George Music services worked very closely with us to ensure that the music and reception were exactly how we wanted. 3 days prior to the wedding the owner Brian and also our MC were on the phone with me every day/night reviewing things with me, providing feedback and working with me to make sure everything went smoothly! The communication with them was great, always returning phone call and answering emails in a timely manner. During the event our MC made sure that we kept our timeline and would even come find me and my husband to remind us. He was very friendly and really did a great job keeping our guests dancing and having a good time! The night really flew by and we all wanted to keep dancing and partying all night! Overall the experience with Brian George Music services was very positive! I would definitely recommended this company to other people and would use them again for other events!
Excellent DJ Service!Reviewed on 6/16/2014 Lara M
Bryan George came recommended to us from our photographer, whom we really trusted. His rates were initially more than we wanted to pay, but given his professionalism and the awesome service we received during planning and on the day-of, it was worth every penny. Leading up to our wedding, he kept all of our emails and requests organized and remembered every detail. Bryan is a low-key DJ (no cheesy MC-ing), but he played a great mix of music that appealed to all our guests and kept the party going all night. In addition to the music, he was great at organizing the wedding party for introductions, and keeping us on schedule (e.g., toasts, dances, etc.). Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Bryan, and I would highly recommend him to any couple planning a wedding.
