DJ Brennan is All the Rave

Get on the bandwagon and hire DJ Brennan for your event!

"Hi Brennan,

You were amazing! Even my colleagues who were working on the weddings that day went to our room and wanted to ask your information.

You will definitely be referred by me to future clients.

Again, thank you and have a great day!"

The Blessing in Disguise

Happy reviews bring smiles to our faces :)

"Hi DJ Brennan,

We were thrilled with your services at Manny's bar mitzvah. You did a wonderful job playing the music we wanted. I also appreciated how you demonstrated the line dances and I saw the kids and adults both joining in to dance. The kids loved all the games you played. I had several compliments from guests regarding your services. In fact, one person who lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia wanted to know if you would travel that far for a party. If you do, I would be happy to pass along your contact information. After the scare from the other company, I think it may have been a blessing in disguise since I couldn't have asked for a better DJ than you. Thank you again."

Superheroes Invade the Gaylord National Resort

Nightsong had a blast playing for 2000 guests at a reception on 8/6/15 at the beautiful Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. What made it even better was that the event was superhero themed! The stage was amazing with cool lights and there was even batman projections on the surrounding walls. Everyone got into character and really had fun with it. Nightsong even played an encore! Loved hearing that everyone really enjoyed themselves and their night.

"We hired DJ Dan Goldman for our wedding reception on 8/15/15. I honestly have nothing bad to say about him or Bialek's Music. I am a self-professed "picky" bride, meaning that I believe that my business should be valued, and I was very quick to walk away from any potential vendor who made me feel like they were anything less than grateful for being considered. However, right from the very start, Bialek's and DJ Dan made me feel completely at ease and assured me that my reception would be fantastic. I can now say that they truly lived up to that promise. DJ Dan flawlessly mixed in the songs we selected with other music that he knew would keep the guests on their feet, and the dance floor was packed pretty much the entire night. I had multiple people approach me after the wedding to tell me how fantastic the music was. I would definitely recommend this vendor to anyone in search of music services. Thanks so much for making sure my wedding was amazing!!!!!"

I would like to extend big and sincere thank you to you and the entire Doctors Orders band members! You guys were amazing and everyone could not stop talking about how great the band was.
The entire evening was all that I had anticipated and more! The entire evening was fun and so very memorable.

Amazing sound, great energy and the best selection of hits!!

Michelle said...
We used DJ Dan for our wedding and could not have been more pleased. Our venue was a bit complex in that our ceremony was outside, the cocktail hour was inside and outside, the speeches were in one room, and the dancing was in another room. DJ Dan was absolutely perfect. He made it so that your outdoor ceremony was able to heard by every guest, the cocktail hour and dinner music was perfect, the speeches/microphones were flawless, and the dancing... the dancing was AMAZING. Truly, I would say 90% of our guests were on the dance floor for the entire evening from beginning to end. The music was absolutely perfect and kept the party going all night. DJ Dan was incredibly professional, very responsive and easy to work with. Hands down one of the best vendors that we selected for our wedding and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. Thank you, DJ Dan!!!
Bialek's Music responded with the following comments:
Thanks Michelle, congrats and best of luck to you both!

DJ Brennan Sullivan Review for Westin Arlington Gateway Wedding

Keep the positive reviews coming! Remember we do uplighting and photobooth as well as bands and DJ's.

The Knot:

Excellent DJ for my wedding

Reviewed On 6/24/2015 Erica H
"We had our wedding at the Westin Arlington Gateway on June 13, 2015 and we had the pleasure of working with DJ Brennan Sullivan from Bialek's Music. We live in San Francisco and planned a wedding across country and they were able to make planning and the actual day so easy. DJ Brennan was fantastic. He was able to feel the crowd out and make the night exciting for everyone. I recommend him for any event that you may need. We also used Bialek's music for the uplighting and photobooth at our event. The staff that set up the lights and photobooth were extremely professional and friendly."

DJ Dave Battey at the Bridges Restaurant

Response from Michael Moon after booking DJ Dave Battey through Bialek's music! DJ Dave worked a surprise 50th birthday party at the Bridges Restaurant on the waterfront of Wells Cove. A great place for seafood and pizza and also has a bar, deck, and dock area! Even though they didn't receive the best weather, Moon was still optimistic about his entertainment for the event.


He was a professional and did an excellent job adapting to the conditions we had at the restaurant (foul weather). I enjoyed working with him.

Thank you,"

"Hi Ray

Thank you for the follow up . I appreciate you professionalism and the band definitely reflected the same not only in their performance on stage but off stage as well. Thank you for having such a fabulous team that was willing to work with us thru the entire night and kept not only our job easy but everyone on the dance floor!

Hope to work with you again very soon"

Positive yelp reviews!

We are so proud to have encouraging reviews on yelp, check out our latest one from Tracy R. in Virginia!

"We worked with Bialek and DJ Brennan Sullivan in particular for our wedding day, and we could not have been happier with our choice. Bialek was very helpful in guiding us on our lighting, photo booth, and DJ contracts, selecting high tech lights that offered an array of options for the uplighting during the wedding that captured the mood during each part of the wedding. We were initially hesitant to order a photo booth just because of utility, but it turned out to be a hit at the wedding and working all three through Bialeks made the whole process much simpler. Brennan was very helpful in guiding us for picking our ceremony, cocktail, dinner, and dancing with various options for each part and portion. He adhered to our do not play requests, and masterfully captured the mood of the crowd throughout the night, playing hits from across several decades. Guests throughout the night came up to us and could not believe how much fun they were having dancing, some even saying that "was the most dancing I have done in years!" DJ Brennan was very familiar with the acoustics in our venue (Carnegie Institute for Science), making the overall sound quality perfect during the ceremony, various toasts, and the dancing. Even at the end of the night, Brennan checked with us to make sure that all the songs we wanted to play were played. There was one song that my brothers really wanted to play, and after asking if that was okay, he without hesitation played the song, much to everyone's excitement. Afterwards, he asked if there was anything else we thought of, had issues with, and genuinely sought our feedback on his performance, which was nothing short of perfect. Overall, Bialek s customer service, multitude of options, flexibility, and experienced DJs make the company a perfect selection for your wedding and party event!"

A wonderful "Thank you" letter from Karen Beri RSVP Events. Great job DJ Brennan Sullivan and Palm Strings!

I wanted to send you a note of thanks for your fabulous team that you provided to me for yesterday’s wedding.  I can’t say enough fabulous things about both the Palm Strings Orchestra and DJ Brennan Sullivan!  I had the pleasure of numerous email conversations with Neil Puzon regarding the coordination of this event, who then turned things over to Erik for day of production.  Neil was great with answering my email quickly and addressing the concerns of my client.  Erik and the team were amazing to work with on Saturday.

Being in the wedding business, I work with many, many vendors, especially DJ’s.  I can’t express to you enough the joy it was to work with Brennan Sullivan!  First, his communication prior to the event was outstanding.  I’m sure you can appreciate the importance of email correspondence.  With some DJ’s I find myself waiting a couple days for them to get back to me-not so with Brennan.  He always answered me within a couple of house, if that, and I very much appreciated his willingness to work with us on changes to the timeline, etc.  Yesterday’s wedding was flawless and Brennan’s performance at this wedding was impeccable!  Not only was he a joy to work with, he was flexible with changes, set up amazingly quick, showed true dedication to his job and kept the guests on the dance floor the entire evening.  I’ve probably worked with over 100 DJ’s in the past 7 years and no one has ranked as high as Brennan for me.

You have a great staff of performers Ray and I’m so blessed to have finally been able to work with you all and meet this wonderful entertainers.  I look forward to working with you all again in the future.  My heartfelt thanks!"

Three lovely letters from clients that enjoyed our services.


I wanted to thank you and the staff on the Miss Christin for an INCREDIBLE evening. The boat was perfect, and the students had a wonderful time. Even though our group arrived too late to do the boat tour, everyone on the staff was extremely friendly and helpful to our group. The amount of food on the boat was perfect – it is always disappointing to us and the students when the food runs out prematurely or when they are denied something we were initially promised – which was not an issue at all with your company. Additionally, the DJ made a great atmosphere, and the students loved dancing and requesting songs. They even asked me ahead of time, “Miss, do you think the DJ would play Mexican music for us?” and they were happy to find that their requests were met happily.
 We truly appreciate your hospitality and high quality of service. When travelling with school groups, we are not always treated with the same quality of customer service that would be given to an all-adult group, so we are extremely grateful and appreciative for the experience you provided for our group.

Thank you again!

Dear Robert,

Well it is the morning after the Cameron-Voge Wedding and the Father-of-the-Bride is checking in to say how much we enjoyed Sound Nation last night.  I think that crowd would have danced with you all night if they could have.  One piece of business is annoying me.  I totally forgot to get you and the band the gratuity I wanted to provide.  This is partially your fault because I was having so much fun.  I probably should have given the task to one of our planners but I wanted to give you the envelope myself and simply was off gallivanting when the time came.  But, this we can rectify – I can send you my token of our appreciation is you just tell me where.
 Many many thanks for a great evening.
 David Cameron

Dear Michael,
 My sincerest apologies for not replying to you sooner.
 Thank you SO much for your email - It meant a lot to me.  Michael, you were such a huge part of our day - you made everything so much more fun, special and meaningful!
 I feel so, so, so lucky to have gotten you as our DJ! You did an OUTSTANDING JOB! Over a handful of people commented on "how fun and nice" the DJ was. Thinking back on it, you NAILED the ceremony music....I noticed how you started the songs in the perfect places...same with the reception!
 I was amazed at how smoothly everything really have the karaoke down pat. Your organization skills showed during the after party! Our friends just loved the karaoke - a lot of them said it was one of the funnest weddings they've been to and I think the Karaoke made it! Thank you.
 Anyone having an event or wedding is extremely lucky to have you there! I posted a raving review on Wedding Wire about you and I also sent a note to Christian w/ Bialek's letting them know how wonderful you are....I'm sure they get many emails. : )
 From the bottom of my heart, you really made our day that much more special. You are wonderful - thank you for everything.
 Your assistant that day was very nice as well - good people stick with good people! I hope we do keep in touch. I will certainly reach out to you if we need any type of music for anything in the future. I'll also share your email if I hear of anyone who needs a DJ. You are so welcome for the gratuity - wish I had more to give you because you were AWESOME!
Best of luck to you this summer! Thanks again for making our wedding day so special. (I loved dancing to Mambo #5 with my mom....I'll remember that forever.)

Kind Regards,

Katie & Bobby
