  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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 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!

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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!

  • Brandon was so helpful and easy to work with! He made sure we had exactly what we needed! He was super nice and easy to talk to! His phone call meetings were so convenient and he was easy to reach! His payment policy was also very easy to work with! He made sure everyone was having a good time! He also brought along a Spanish speaking assistant which was a plus and he too was very kind and fun to work with! I’m so glad I found Brandon in such a short notice! His way of personalizing your playlist and package is something I will forever be grateful for! Everyone at our wedding said how cool he was and that he did an amazing job! He was one of our least stressful vendors!! He deserves these five stars! If you’re in the Bay Area and need an affordable and reasonably priced DJ Brandon is the way to go! High quality professional work for an affordable price = happy bride!!

    Oh thank you, thank you Magaly! I loved your wedding and I was really impressed with how much Banda music your family and friends would dance to and how hard they danced! One for my record books for sure!

  • A few months before our wedding, our original DJ backed out and I had a temporary freakout. Thanks to Google, we found Brandon and we knew we were in good hands. He was super responsive to all of our questions and was always willing to go above and beyond (e.g., mic up 3 different locations on a very short timetable; act as the person to excuse guests to the buffet line; etc.). Admittedly, my husband and I were hands off the playlist. We were busy with a million other details, so we told Brandon to go for it. He sent us suggested playlists for first dance songs/recessional/processionals (which we picked the night before our wedding, so more bonus points for going with the flow up until the very last minute). For the ceremony, we made some loose suggestions, but that's about it. Brandon kept my party going until the last song. We had guests ranging from 18-70s, and it seemed like EVERY GUEST got on the dance floor. We even had a conga line going. Brandon and his team did a great job. To... Read more

    Thanks for the great recap Andrea! You and Chris were a pleasure to work with and I loved the epic unfolding of your ceremony in the Redwoods. So glad this worked out last minute!

  • Brandon is AMAZING! I only have great things to say about him, and the pure love and talent that he has for music shines through as soon as you speak with him. The music at our wedding was a huge concern for my husband and I, and honestly we were stressing about it before we got in touch with Brandon. He was so helpful and easy to work with throughout the whole process, and was responsive to all of my many emails...I mean I had never planned a wedding before! He walked us through everything step by step and communicated with us through email, phone and Skype. We created collaborative playlists where we could add music as soon as one popped into our head, and we edited accordingly to make the music selection for our big day perfect. He is amazing at reading the vibe of the evening and can keep people up and dancing on the dance floor the entire evening. We received compliment after compliment about Brandon's epic musical skills and how they had never danced so much in their life! Also, ... Read more

  • Where do I even begin...Looking for a Dj is a daunting task. Something about his video and his calm disposition made me reach out for an initial talk. From the beginning one could tell that A) Brandon loves music and what he does and B) Brandon wants to make your day special and will make everything in his power to make that happen. I've enjoyed our talks and getting to know him. On our special day he was truly fantastic and went above and beyond. He has a very calm nature about him but knows exactly when to turn up the heat on the dance floor. Our guests throughly enjoyed the way he was able to direct the dance floor. Well if you can't tell I'm a fan. So give him a shot. He is awesome!

    Dang! That's a great review. Thanks so much Hans. Working with you and Heidi, meeting for lunch and throwing down at Carneros. You guys are great! Thanks for the stellar review!

  • Brandon is an amazing DJ. We were planning from out of state, but Brandon always managed to make us feel more confident after each meeting. Brandon went above and beyond throughout the entire planning process. He was responsible and responsive. The ceremony was great and the sound was perfect, from volume to reliability to consistency. And it went smoothly despite Brandon having to juggle the two locations for our entirely outdoor wedding. The vibe was exactly what we were hoping for, and we even got some shoutouts for some of the songs that were played. When searching for DJs, we didn't want someone that makes the show about themselves or make any awkward jokes, Brandon was the perfect match. He was there to deliver seamless music and chime in with his soothing voice when most appropriate. Brandon helped make our wedding day more romantic and perfect. We could not recommend him more. Thank you Brandon!
