  • Brandon was fantastic! We got married during a very challenging period (covid, fires, venue uncertainty) and Brandon worked with us throughout. He was super collaborative, responsive, organized and made out event a success! We couldn't have been more happy!

  • You can't go wrong with hiring Brandon. My now husband and I don't listen to typical "wedding music", and Brandon worked with us to create a playlist that had some classic wedding songs that everyone loves and can dance to, while also having more alternative/indie music that we genuinely like. We also specifically requested some throwback 2000's dance music like "yeah!" and "low" which he happily obliged. He was very good at reading the room as well. Later in the night when it was mostly the younger crown dancing - he takes notice and shifts the music to whatever everyone is dancing too. He helped with the timeline events as far as first dance/ parent dance goes to make sure there was a really good flow and nothing would completely cut off dancing. One of the main reasons we hired Brandon was because he also plays acoustic guitar/sings. Our venue has sound restrictions where we can't have any amplified sound outdoors (we had the ceremony/cocktail hour/dinner outdoors), so Brandon pla... Read more

  • Brandon’s music was a huge part of making our wedding amazing and he was so easy to work with. I had so many things up in the air, I wasn’t much help with music, and Brandon made sure the lighting, songs, and overall vibe were perfect. From looking up acoustic children’s songs on the fly to selecting dance songs I still sing in my head when I think of that night, I can think of no better wedding music selection than Brandon. We’re so happy we found him!

  • We could not have been happier with Brandon as our DJ. He was organized, professional, thoughtful, and executed to perfection on the big day. He sent us a questionnaire before the wedding to get to know our style and the mood we wanted to set for each part of the evening. On the day of the event everything ran smoothly from the set up to the execution. One of the things we cared most about was having an awesome dance party and he absolutely delivered. I’ve never put on such a great dance party and I’m glad it was at our wedding. Weeks later and our friends are still raving how fun the music was and how well executed the songs were at pulling out all different generations to the dance floor. Brandon, seriously, thanks for such a great night!

  • We wanted a mix of live music and DJ sets for our wedding so Brandon looked perfect and he was! From the early stages of chatting with Brandon about what we wanted in terms of setup and style of music for different parts our day Brandon was so helpful and positive about everything. He played the songs requested during our ceremony, played live during the cocktail hour and then played an amazing DJ set well into the night. Brandon’s live music during cocktail hour set the perfect vibe for a sunny afternoon while our guests mingled, played games and started to have a few drinks. Then after the first dance Brandon had the dance floor going all night. We were married a few months ago and I still have people raving to me that it was by far the most fun dance floor at a wedding they had ever been to. I could not recommend Brandon – The Celebration DJ more highly for a wedding or any event. From the initial planning stages, to setting up mics for our celebrant and MC’s, all throughout...

    Yo Jarrad! So good to hear from you again. Thanks for the great review! I'm so happy to hear that people are still talking about the music and that you enjoyed it so much. I hope that you and Steph are loving married life and I really hope we run into one another again someday. Let me know if you're ever in the Bay, I really appreciate your style of life lovin' and I'd be happy to have you over for dinner or go dancing!

  • The whole process with Brandon was so easy! Communication was great and he helped us through the entire process. We were able to create some amazing playlists for different parts of our wedding (happy hour, dinner and dancing) with the help of Brandon and his deep music collection. I'm not just saying this because it was my wedding but I have never been on the dance floor for the entire party. Brandon played music that got everyone on their feet and really keep the part going through the night. I can't recommend Brandon enough. If you want an amazing dance party with music from all decades, this is your guy!

  • We loved working with Brandon. My husband and I were very busy and planned most of the wedding ourselves. Brandon jumped in and took initiative organizationally, which was great because we had so much on our plate. He was the one to schedule initial and follow up consultations (in person and/or by phone), set up a Google document with “To-Dos”, and created Spotify playlists for us to add songs to. Overall, the process was very customizable, but Brandon is there to offer his two cents! We selected playlists with what we wanted during the event (ceremony, first dances, dance floor), but Brandon reads the crowd well and plays bangers when the time is called for. Overall, we had such a great time dancing to all his tunes. Brandon’s top selling point, however, is how much care he puts into the event. He really caters to your requests beyond just song selections. He wants to know what type of “vibe” you are looking for, and meets those needs. He was great announcing special moments... Read more

  • We found Brandon through our wedding planner Christine Garrison of CMG Events. She suggested him because we were interested in having someone play acoustic guitar and singing during the wedding. After chatting with Brandon, we hired him to play the guitar for our ceremony, act as a wandering minstrel during the cocktail hour, and DJ the entire event. Our ceremony took place outdoors in an open lawn area. Brandon did a great job with setting up the sound. Everyone was able to hear both us and the officiant clearly. The acoustic rendition of Heartbeats (Jose Gonzalez) and Wildflowers (Tom Petty) he played for our processional and recessional were beautiful and really set the mood we were looking for. Brandon also did a great job DJing the event. He was able to take a small number of songs and expand the playlist to not only fit our tastes but keep the party hopping. We had expected that we would have minimal dancing and that our crowd would mostly just sit around chatting. However,... Read more

  • Brandon and his team were such an amazing choice for our wedding day and I'm SOOOO thankful we chose them. Music was hugely important to me and I wanted to choose someone who I felt *really* understood how much it could affect our day — we found that in Brandon! His process for letting us select our music while adding his own choices and expertise in was the perfect balanc. I had total faith that he would meet us wherever we were at. I got so many compliments after about how fun the party was and I attribute a ton of that to Brandon (and our awesome guests!). I'm so thankful that we chose The Celebration DJ as I truly believe he was the best choice for our amazing wedding!

    I'm so glad to hear to received such high praise for the party! We had a great time as well. Thank you so much for the kind words Sarah. You two are wonderful people!

  • I would like to first start this off by saying that Brandon is generally just a wonderful person with a great heart, personality, and vision that makes you want him involved in any event you are planning. Now to the specifics...my wife and I recently had Brandon and his crew perform for our wedding. He played and sang live music during the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, then MC'ed and DJ'ed the rest of the evening for the reception/party into the night. Brandon is a fantastic singer and musician, and I have to say that while we were uncertain of live music during the ceremony, afterward we felt privileged to have him perform at our wedding. He guided us thorough along the way in picking the right music for our tastes and never made us feel like we had to do things a certain way. He was genuinely interested in what we wanted and made sure to give us a lot of options for music that he was able to perform for. And he has a VERY long list of music he can play, and was even willing to... Read more

  • Brandon was awesome! He was so thoughtful and helpful on all aspects of music for our wedding. He was very organized and responsive. He not only played great songs for dinner and to get the dance party started at our wedding, but also did an amazing live guitar and singing performance for our ceremony - and was able to play all of our favorite songs. We had many guests comment on how great he and his assistant were and how fun it was that they even rocked out with some dance moves behind the DJ table. We had a great time at our wedding, and a big part of this was due to how organized and fun Brandon was. We highly recommend Brandon for anything wedding!!

    Thanks Alayna! Your words are precisely what I love to hear! So great to share your celebration and thanks again for having me sing such beautiful songs in such a beautiful place!

  • Throughout the entire planning process, Brandon was incredibly responsive and fun! We loved talking with him about our musical interests, which are bit out of the norm, and he listed off related artists right away as suggestions to add to the playlist. Collaborating with him on our wedding playlists was incredibly easy and lots of fun! Being a part of the playlist creation/brainstorm helped us to get really excited leading up to our wedding! Once the wedding day came, he played all of our "must plays" and all our guests were commenting at how much the music fit our personalities and tastes! This was directly tied to the fact that Brandon took the time to understand our preferences and listened very closely when chatting with us. During our wedding we had a bit of a delay before dinner, and the little kids at our wedding were getting a little bit restless, so Brandon set up a mini "kids" dance floor especially for them! The kids LOVED it, and it was so kind of him to set it up and e... Read more

  • Brandon far exceeded our expectations of a wedding DJ in many ways. We were scared because we've seen what's out there at other weddings... yikes. Brandon is the perfect mixture between professionalism and FUN! He gets things started early in terms of asking/guiding what we want for each and every section of the wedding. He can give a wide spread of recommendations if you're feeling stumped (like us for some of it), and accommodates for anything that you want when you know what you want. He doesn't just show up and play stuff; he learns your story, gets to know you and encorporates that seamlessly into the wedding. He's very good with people at the wedding - someone you're proud to have there. Very personable. We were just blown away at how much attention, pre-meditation and focus he puts toward making your experience as good as it can be. He made a process that was more complicated than we knew, go easy. His equipment is modern and extensive, and priced per item so you don't ... Read more

  • Brandon did an amazing job at our wedding in Lodi, California. He was extremely easy to work with, very attentive, and made sure we had all the important details covered. Brandon's communication was great - music was one less thing we had to worry about as our wedding day was approaching. He gave us tons of tips and suggestions that really enhanced the way we created our playlists and themes. Brandon was great on the microphone as well, and had the dance floor busy as soon as dinner ended. We recommend him for your wedding!
