Ray Bialek and his team are amazing to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for their wedding DJ or band. Ray is honest and reasonable and will recommend the best option with your budget and style in mind. I was lucky enough to secure the band Doctor's Orders through Ray Bialek for my wedding on 11/18/17 and they were AMAZING! The highlight of my wedding was this band and I received so many compliments throughout the night. My guests were all telling me it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding and it was all due to this band. I am a Senior Event Manager in D.C. and had no time leading up to my wedding to really focus on it due to my other events. I was barely in touch with Steve, the band leader, and was a little worried since I had only one short phone call with him. I told him a couple songs that were a must and told him to "play fun wedding music" which is very non-descriptive but I trusted him. The music selection was perfect and this band is worth every penny!

Brennan Sullivan did an absolutely amazing job as our wedding DJ! I truly cannot sing his praises enough. He was so responsive to our requests during the run up to wedding and adapted beautifully to our personal tastes in music as well as making sure the sound was perfect throughout the venue. But where I'd like to really give him kudos was Brennan's ability to read the room. To know when folks needed a one song break from dancing and when the crowd was ready to to hit the dance floor hard. Our dance floor was packed for most of the night! Thank you so much Brennan! It was the best night ever!

Brennan Sullivan was an awesome DJ! He responded promptly and thoroughly to my emails during the planning process, and always provided me with extra details and ideas for my event. The reception was amazing-- all the music was upbeat, easy to dance to, and flowed well. My friends and family had SO much fun, and I'm grateful for Brennan's time and talent! It truly made the event cohesive and exciting, and I was glad to have such an intuitive and flexible DJ. I highly recommend Brennan and Bialek's Music!

Brennan Sullivan was the DJ for our wedding and he was amazing! It was so easy to communicate with him before the wedding as he was super responsive to all of my emails and questions. He also helped me find some good cut-off points for our processional songs. The day-of, Brennan worked with our coordinator and other vendors to help things run smoothly. He played all of the songs we requested and also read the crowd right to get the party started. We had a lot of friends come up to us during and after the wedding complimenting him as well. He was also the perfect MC- good speaking voice, not too intrusive, and kept the mood up the whole night! Brennan helped make our wedding a fun and unforgettable night and I would highly recommend his services!

Bialek's was amazing - the band for our reception Sound Nation and the String Along Duo for our ceremony did a fabulous job. Everyone kept raving to me about how great the band was - they kept everyone dancing all night long!!

If I could give DJ Brennan Sullivan 10+ stars I would! I can't stress the importance of having a DJ (and MC) that knows what they are doing at your wedding, or any event for that matter! It's a “make it” or “break it” part of the evening, and I have complete confidence that Brennan will always make it a night/event to remember, as he did for my wedding! Everyone was dancing the whole night and is still raving about how much fun they had. Brennan really knows how to read a crowd, which is essential if you want to keep ALL your guests entertained. Even before we decided we wanted Brennan to DJ our wedding, he went out of his way to meet us via skype and after that it was very clear he knew what he was doing. He is incredibly responsive, thorough in his correspondence and great to work with. He doesn’t miss a beat and made this part of the wedding planning a breeze! Of course, I also have to give a big shout out to Bialek’s for connecting us to Brennan. After speaking with multiple DJ/musical vendors, I spoke with Robin at Bialek's who was delightful to work with, very accommodating and understanding of what it was my husband and I were looking for in a DJ for our wedding. Use this vendor and hire Brennan! You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Brennan Sullivan was the DJ for our October wedding. My now-husband and I were ecstatic about the music, and think he did an unbelievably great job. Before the wedding, Brennan was extremely responsive to my questions, requests, and musical selections, agreeing to shorten our first dance song to a manageable amount of time. On the day of the wedding, Brennan continued to do a great job. The announcements were very tastefully done, and Brennan's professionalism definitely enhanced the event. We so appreciated how responsive he were to the music genres we wanted to hear, and kept the dance floor packed the entire time! He even included French language songs we had requested because my husband's family is French, and went out of his way to track down some tracks we requested, even though he had never heard of them before the event. We have already recommended Brennan to friends getting married in the DC area, and will continue to do so!

We hired Randy Richmond to be the DJ at our wedding and we would highly recommend him to anyone. He is very professional and responsive. He contacted us via email after we signed the contract and then stayed in contact via phone and email as much as we wanted. He answered all our questions and had great suggestions for picking the best music and for deciding what type of entertainment to have. He can provide lists of songs to choose from but we picked our own song list and he was very willing to work with that. He incorporated everything we wanted into the wedding. During the wedding he was a total professional. He made sure everything sounded great and he has a very enthusiastic personality so he kept the guests engaged and entertained. He made the wedding seem flawless. He also has a great voice that got everyone's attention and he was the perfect MC!

We chose String Central within the Bialek's music portfolio, and were not disappointed! The guests loved the strings, and they fit right in with our ceremony space. They were very accommodating, especially as we decided our "please play" lists- even with my more specific choices of the classical and pop covers for the prelude music. We were able to look at multiple song lists and their website to actually hear the songs before they were played for the wedding. The pace was perfect for processional and recessional, and all four of the string quartet were so professional. Overall, we're so glad that we had the privilege of sharing our special day with String Central and Bialek's!

I hired Dj Rich from Bialek's Music and it was the best decision I've ever made. He has the best DJ voice, he called me prior to the meeting to go over everything. On the day of he made it a point to meet myself and my husband before the reception began. Not only was he our DJ but he was also our MC. When there were a few changes to the timeline he just went along with it. He also added some fun activities for us to do after the cake cutting that I didn't even think of. People to this day are still telling me how amazing of a DJ he was.

Tim, from Bialek's Music, was the cellist for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was easy to work with and made it so the music wasn't something we had to worry about with everything else going on for our wedding. The music was beautiful -- the perfect complement for our wedding day.
