DJ Brian Hood did an amazing job! Everyone came up to us at the end of the reception saying that our wedding was the most fun of any they had ever been to, and it was totally thanks to DJ Brian. Our meetings with him prior to the event were incredibly helpful. He asked us a... Read More ton of questions we hadn’t even thought of, and we felt very comfortable that everything was covered on the big day. He accommodated any special requests that we had – I’ll admit I’m kind of picky when it comes to song choice and the general flow of the evening, and he completely knocked it out of the park! He also added some of his own fun ideas, like the “special moments dance” that he cleared with us beforehand, that really made the night memorable for us and all of our guests. DJ Brian is a natural! The dance floor was full the entire night. Almost all of our guests were out there dancing and singing along to every song until the very end, when we had to close down at 1am. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or other special event. Thank you so much, DJ Brian!


FANTASTIC!!!

Not only is Brian an amazing DJ, he is an amazing entertainer! He is very personable and professional! An expert in his trade! We were so happy with our decision for our wedding day! He kept everything running smoothly and the dance floor was packed the WHOLE night! He played... Read More something for everyone! He has an awesome voice and did a wonderful tribute to my husband and I, along with all of our guests singing along! He and his wife arrived hours before our wedding and stayed for hours after. They made a beautiful lighted monogram, along with up-lighting to match our colors. The hall looked fabulous! They worked so hard to make everything absolutely perfect, which it was. If you want a fun, memorable, and not to mention affordable DJ, I would definitely recommend Special Moments Entertainment!


THE BEST DJ EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reviewed on 2/23/2015 Jaclyn W

Before you read this review about the BEST DJ EVER, you need to know a few things about me: (1.) Special Moments Entertainment/DJ Brian Hood played at my brother’s wedding in the fall, so I’ve seen Brian in action twice. As soon as I heard him play at my brother’s wedding, I... Read More knew we had to book him ASAP. I couldn’t have been as happy with any other DJ. (2.) The crowd LOVES him. Multiple guests at both my brother’s wedding & my wedding commented on how great the DJ was. Grandparents, parents, aunts/uncles, young folks alike loved his choice of music, & I don’t even think anyone thought to make a request (though of course you can) because his song selection is just so great. Great mixture of classic hits that get everyone moving & more contemporary stuff that really kick the wedding up another notch for all the younger folks in attendance. I have guests who have totally different musical tastes than me who commented on the music selection & how universally great it was. Since I had heard Brian play at my brother’s wedding, I gave him some recommendations of songs that were my favorites but largely gave him the choice to pick out music since I trusted him & knew he would have the best idea of what would be wedding music that would keep everyone dancing. (3.) He’s so much more than just a DJ. He is an awesome MC who totally works the room and gets everyone, the guests & the bridal party, amped up for the night. I had some pretty significant last minute crazy changes, & he didn’t get flustered at all. Just took care of it without a problem. He is also a performer with an incredible voice. I first found this out when Brian sang a 1960s classic at my brother’s wedding & I didn’t even know it was a live singer – I thought it was the recording. His voice is so incredible that a lot of people have to do a double take before they realize that it’s not a recording but an actual person singing. I have heard this independently from MULTIPLE guests how shocked & pleasantly surprised & impressed they were to see him up there singing! (4.) I’m terrible at planning events, but not only was Brian incredibly patient helping me plan the timeline for the entire night of my wedding, he was pleasant, kind, & humorous. He really took the time to get to know me through our phone conversations. He is VERY experienced & is literally an expert at helping plan the timeline for the wedding night & thought of details that hadn’t even occurred to me. I went into our phone call not really having any idea about the timing for the grand entrance, cake cutting, toasts, etc. & left the phone conversation feeling confident & in the know. It helped me relax esp. since I was planning from out-of-state & helped the night flow smoothly from event to event. (5.) His price is incredibly reasonable. With the benefit of hindsight & seeing him kick butt at two different weddings, quite honestly I would have paid an extra 50% of what he charges. HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY, & I’m shocked he’s still so affordable. (6.) I literally was able to relax because I knew that he just does such a fantastic job at weddings. I knew our wedding was in good hands & that there was no question that people were going to have an incredible time. And we did. The dance floor was moving the entire night. Brian was enthusiastic and really helped set the mood. It was one of the one of the best nights of my life, and I have Brian to thank! So do yourself a favor and hire him!!!!

DJ Brian Hood was fantastic! He responded to emails quickly, and was very thorough in his details! I love music, and he incorporated different songs in our ceremony, and played our requests at the reception. We have zero complaints, and everything turned out perfectly (no issues...

His wife was also very helpful and sweet, she offered to get us drinks and appetizers before our grand entrance which was very much appreciated. We will recommend Special Moments Entertainment to our family and friends planning a wedding!

We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ than Brian (and his wife) from Special Moments Entertainment. We wanted someone who was affordable and who would take care of the flow of the reception...Brian was definitely our guy! During our first appointment, he ran through all the... Read More details- from how he would introduce us, the organization of the night, and even the lighting! We felt we were truly there! My husband is Caucasian and I am Mexican, so I wanted music in Spanish. He was open to me sending him music and he included it in the list of songs. It was truly a great night! I was worried people would not dance because of the mixture of songs, but I was pleased when everyone danced up until the last song! I loved, loved, loved the special moments dance where everyone gathered around us as we danced and Brian sang and encouraged everyone to sing as well. I would definitely recommend Brian for your special night.

Brian Hood is a phenomenal DJ. When I first met with Brian I did not know exactly how crucial a good MC is at a wedding ceremony. He was the glue that held our wedding reception together. There are so many moments that happen during a wedding reception that need to be organized... Read More and thought through, and he helped us with all of those at our meeting. He is kind, talented, and charismatic, he is basically exactly what you want in an MC and DJ. He knows how to read a crowd and how to keep choosing songs that keep the people dancing. I have already recommended Special Moments Entertainment to a few of my friends who are getting married soon. The next time I need to hire a DJ, the first person I call will be Special Moments Entertainment!

AMAZING!!! Brian did such a fantastic job the night of our wedding. I was kind of a particular bride with the way I wanted the night to go and he executed the it flawlessly! He really gets guests engaged and on the dance floor. One thing that I wasn't sure about when he... Read More brought it up to me was the "special moments dance." It just didn't sound like our style. But we decided to try it out and had him do it, and man I'm glad we did! It truly added a personal touch to the night for us and our guests. And his lighting...oh my goodness! LOVE!!! the colored up lighting just really transforms a room and his dance floor lighting keeps the energy up. We were so happy at the end of the night and didn't want it to end!

Stop looking for a DJ right now and call Special Moments. I'm serious. We met with the big DJ companies-where you talk with a salesperson and make your DJ choice based off their online videos. We met with independent DJ's who tried to upsell us with video slideshows, or... Read More insisted our dance floor needed props to make our barn reception "fun". Then, we met Brian from Special Moments. He gave us a presentation on how he would emcee our reception and has a vast knowledge of music. There was no pressure to book, no trying to sell us glow sticks (that seriously happened with one DJ company), no pressure to pay for the highest package he offers. Brian has a really great energy, when you meet him, you will know what I'm talking about. Our wedding couldn't have run more smoothly or been as much fun without Brian. We had a barn wedding, with an outside ceremony and Brian ran our ceremony music. Everything was right on cue. Once the reception started, Brian kept the night moving according to our previously planned schedule - he played great music (he puts request cards out on the tables for the guests) and our dance floor was packed the whole night. He even sang a song to us and got all of our guests involved - it was wonderful! I can't say enough nice things about this company. My husband and I highly recommend them!

I can not say enough good things about DJ Brian! Right from the beginning he was very professional and pleasant to work with. Brian provided the music for our ceremony and also the entertainment for our reception. He was exceptional at both tasks. Not only did Brian keep the... Read More party going for us, he joined in with us...showing some of us amateurs how to "wobble"! :) Brian kept the night flowing absolutely flawlessly, and to a bride and groom their only hope is to have their most important night to run smoothly. He did a fantastic job at playing requests from his complimentary request cards and really making sure guests were happy! Brian has an endless song collection sure to please anyone and the up-lighting he provided really made you feel like it was time to celebrate! Brian always returned phone calls or texts and was quick to put any concerns at rest. At the final sit down before the wedding, he did a phenomenal job at really listening to what we wanted and helped us to plan our nights events , which flowed perfectly! Oh, and did I mention, he can sing amazingly! Brian will be more than just your "DJ", he will be your wing man who is keeping everything running right on schedule, so that you are able to enjoy every "special moment" that happens and not worry about a thing! We will be contacting Brian for any DJ service that we may need in the future and we will definitely refer him to everyone! Thank you Brian for making our wedding night a true success!

He definitely isn't the type of DJ to just stand behind a booth and play music. He guided the entire room through one of the most fun evenings any of us had ever had. His Special Moments Dance was definitely a HIGHLIGHT!! Who knew he was such an amazing singer!! He even got out there and danced with us a couple of times!

I would highly recommend Special Moments Entertainment for your wedding. My husband and I were referred to the company by our photographer and we are so happy we decided to book them for our wedding. From the first time I spoke with Brian, the owner and DJ, I could tell he was...

Brian and his wife are so friendly and very easy to work with. He was happy to fulfill all our requests, was very helpful with our questions and had great advice/suggestions for how to do things. Obviously, planning a wedding is not something we do every day so it was great to speak with someone who has assisted in hundreds of weddings. Although along with his suggestions, he would always stress that it was our day and his number one priority was to make us happy. I can not say enough about Special Moments, but I think most importantly I should mention we had SO much fun at our wedding! My husband and I both wish our reception could have been longer because it was such a great time and we got so many compliments from our friends/family that they thought so too. It’s exactly what we wanted to hear afterwards and we have Brian to thank for that.

An entertainer, a professional vocalist, a musician starting in my teen years, graduating to playing in wedding bands, club bands, etc. I have been around music my whole life! My goal as I shifted to DJ for the last 20 years, has always been to try to bring my musical experience/knowledge of all types of music (from classics to the most current) to the party, to facilitate their night smoothly, and give that Bride/Groom an exciting, unique celebration with their family/friends and a night to remember with great lasting memories!
