Bryan George Music is outstanding. We highly recommend them for any wedding. From the initial stages of wedding planning through the end of the reception, Bryan George Music provided an exceptional experience. Bryan’s responsiveness and flexibility made for any easy, convenient... Read More setup. He clearly understood our approach and theme for the wedding and made sure everything came through. Our DJ, Ramses, could not have been better. From showing up early to help coordinate with the event staff to setting up equipment on two floor to keeping the mood and tone of the wedding going with the exact music we wanted to hear – Ramses was all around excellent. Thanks to him, the dance floor was non-stop full throughout the reception. The fact that our guests continue to complement the music is a testament to Bryan George Music.

Like everyone else has said--working with Bryan George Music was amazing. Unlike some of the other DJ's we met with in planning, Bryan George Music really understood who we were. Bryan was never pushy and we were super impressed with his professionalism through the entire... Read More process. This was the first time my husband and I have ever worked with a professional DJ before, so we really had no idea what the process or timelines should look like. Bryan and his team were great, providing education when needed, coaching us through each of the steps, yet also being incredibly patient to allow us to work on our timeline. Wedding Details: Gay wedding with outdoor ceremony and reception, indoor seated dinner. Total guests: 94 On the actual day of the wedding, Ray arrived exactly on time and was cool, calm, collected and professional--exactly what we needed! He set up quickly and actively participated in the dry run of the evening, he even somehow collaborated with my husband to surprise me with a special song! Doing an outdoor wedding in an urban environment could be challenging, but Ray set up the system perfectly. The speakers filled the area, and the wireless mics picked up every part of the ceremony. That special music my husband sang for me was one of the best-balanced audio setups I've heard in a long time--so much so that many of the guests thought it was a recording at first! When we moved indoors for the dinner and toast, Ray had another great setup which balanced perfectly in the room--loud enough everyone could hear music, but quiet enough even those with hearing aids could have quiet conversations. Ray was present but unobtrusive, allowing him to actively help move the evening along while always be in the background. Finally, for the reception they did a great job of taking the song list we provided and working it to keep the night lively and entertaining. There were no awkward transitions, and Ray did a great job of incorporating the music from across generations in a way that brought all the generations together. I was really impressed with Bryan George in all conversations and coordination leading up to the wedding day. I was a little nervous about what to expect on the actual day of the wedding since we'd never talked with Ray. All of our concerns were unwarranted though, as Ray showed the same outstanding professionalism and engagement we saw with Bryan. We truly were impressed with the finesse and detail Ray demonstrated, making us feel comfortable and allowing us to enjoy the day. We cannot thank Ray and Bryan George Music enough for helping to make our wedding an incredible day in our lives! We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone!

We used Bryan George Music for our ceremony music, cocktail hour/ceremony music, and photo booth. We could not be more pleased with how everything turned out. The DJ was very detail oriented and worked with us to find and curate very detailed playlists for each part of our...

Going into our wedding weekend I was fully confident the DJ and photo booth were going to be one of our best vendors and I was right. The photo booth was also excellently done and allowed us to have digital copies of all our guests photos as well as helping to curate a photo guest book. I highly recommend using the bundles they offer for a slight discount, but overall the quality is well worth the money and rates were very reasonable for the DC area.

Bryan was an amazing DJ, a pleasure to work with, and the most helpful person we could have asked for during the entire process. From the very beginning, all the way up to the week of the wedding, Bryan was always available to help us plan the entire wedding soundtrack. He was... Read More even better the day of. Our wedding was 90 minutes outside of DC, and he still arrived with plenty of time to spare to set up. He prepared a great mix for cocktail hour and once the party really started, Bryan kept all our guests on the dance floor for over five hours. Seriously, the dance floor was never empty for five hours. We could not be happier with Bryan’s services, his professionalism, and his overall great attitude that truly separates him from other DJs. 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.

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.

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!

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!
