Born in Calgary, Alberta and raised in the Ice Box of the Nation International Falls, MN; Brian Glad aka DJ BGLAD has climbed the ranks of DJ and entertainment stardom to become one of the top entertainers in the Twin Cities. His success, however, didn't happen overnight.


It was during his time at college that Brian got his first taste of the professional music entertainment at a local night club by 1st off getting discovered working at a music store. From there, Brian started hosting small parties, weddings, sweet sixteen parties, and even the occasional school dance. No job was too small, and Brian used these events as a way to build up his technical repertoire, until he decided to break out.


After graduating college, he moved to Minneapolis, MN to officially launch his brand as DJ BGLAD :o) one of the most sought out DJ’s in the Twin Cities. He definitely knows how to create magic with music! He’s also quite the illusionist with cards.
As one of the Twin Cities hidden top entertainers, DJ BGLAD has proven his talents across the Midwest. He has traveled all the way down to Bolivar, MO up to Winnipeg, MB to Bismarck, ND across to Houghton, MI. His talents have energized many of the Midwest’s private parties and events, including companies like Target and Best Buy. DJ BGLAD’s experiences have allowed him to keep every event entertaining, innovative and exciting.


His unique style of mixing Hip Hop with 80's, Rock, Funk and House music have set DJ BGLAD apart. If music was a roller coaster; you’re on it when he’s mixing; if there are rules; he breaks them. Renowned for his witty and well thought out mixes, BGLAD has the ability to feel the beat and pulse of the crowd like so few DJ's can. He is a favorite at most of the hottest and exclusive events in Minnesota. Read less

Brian was my husband and my wedding DJ September of 2013. Any of you who have planned weddings before know how crazy it can get to find any sort of entertainment. Luckily we got a name from a friend of ours for a DJ who turned out to be booked but then he passed along Brian Glad's name to us. After the first meeting with Brian, we were completely excited and knew we wanted him to not just be our DJ but be the Emcee that lead all of our guests through a night of fun! One of my favorite parts about Brian is that he also does magic! He came to our groom's dinner for some magic entertainment and during our social hour he walked around and did magic tricks for the guests. We haven't heard anything less than what a fantastic job Brian did from our guests and how they also loved the magic entertainment! 100% recommend Brian to be anyone's Emcee for any party they are throwing: birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc. He was fantastic to work with and showed us great ways to lay out our reception which I had never even thought of! For any future party that needs entertainment I will be calling DJ BGlad!

My husband and I had 4 months to plan our wedding, plus we were on a budget because we would be moving across the country only a few weeks after. We felt so fortunate when Brian agreed to Emcee our reception and provide the entertainment for the evening. He worked with us putting together the perfect package with the most beautiful winter ambiance I had ever seen. He worked off the room and transformed the area with blue up-lighting to make it feel like you were in a snow globe. He added a personalized Gobo on the dance floor and strategically placed lights throughout the room, adding just enough light for perfect visibility.
Brian is a true gem, he is one of a kind and will add the perfect touch to your special day. He goes above and beyond to create your dream into a reality. He took charge of all the entertainment so I didn't feel any pressure or stress, and let's be honest, nobody wants the bride stressed. :) In all honesty though, our perfect day wouldn't have been perfect without Brian and his ability to adapt, his charisma, his professionalism and his own touch on making it fun. There wasn't a moment in the night our dance floor wasn't full. I have recommended Brian to others and they have already scooped him up. Do not miss your chance either, I promise you will not be disappointed. Brian, thank you for being so wonderful to us and for adding the perfect touch on our very special day!

DJ BGlad was awesome! He went out of his way to help us with not only being our emcee for the night but also checking in with us throughout the night to coordinate our activities (speeches, garter toss, bouquet toss, etc). He was so genuine, thoughful, and creative. We couldn't have asked for a better emcee/entertainer. Our guests were even raving about what a great emcee DJ BGlad was. Thank you for everything Brian, you made our night more special than we could have imagained.

Brian did a great job at our wedding reception. We received many compliments from our guests, from both young & old. He was very professional throughout & made the entertainment portion the easiest part of our wedding planning process. He was also very flexible to our needs; both leading up to & during the event. I strongly recommend Brian for any (& every) event.

Brian did such a great job as our wedding DJ!! My husband and I as well as all of our guests had such a great time on the dance floor and Brian also did an amazing job setting an elegant atmosphere during dinner. Brian did a great job balancing some of the classics with the newer, faster music. We LOVED when he dedicated special songs to our friends and family. (Brian also listened to us when we told him to ignore my dad's bossy instructions) I would definitely recommend DJ BGLAD for any bride/ groom looking for wedding entertainment.

Brian was absolutely incredible. We were so pumped he was willing to make a 100 mile trek out of the city to cover our wedding with about 9 days notice! Not only did he do it, but the price was fair, and he did it with a smile. We had a fantastic celebration with nothing but the music setting the tone for the night, and the dance floor didn't empty until well after the party was thought to end. Thanks for coming down to the Nowak farm last summer, and I will continue to recommend you to anyone who asks. We have attended several lame wedding dances and are proud to say ours was AWESOME. Thanks again! Mitch and Liz Brunette

We had Brian host our wedding reception and he was FANTASTIC! Brian was with us every step of the way in planning the entertainment for our reception: magic, crowd interaction, dances we wanted and didn't want, games. . .it was absolutely perfect. He let us be involved with planning and our reception rocked. Everyone loved the music and we all had so much fun. I would highly recommend DJBGLAD for wedding and entertainment needs! He helped make our reception amazing! Thank you, Brian!

Brian was so professional and accomodating during the process of choosing a DJ for our 200+ wedding reception at Grandview Lodge. We wanted people on the dance floor all night long and together we chose a good mix of songs to make that happen. We still have people today telling us that our reception was the best they have been to. Good music and a good DJ make a huge difference!

Amazing customer service! DJ BGlad took the time to find out how we wanted to entertain our guests. He played the music we wanted when we wanted it. He also did a fantastic job getting people off their seats and out on the floor. It was full the entire evening! Check him out forsure if you want your guests to remember your special day as it's the last thing they remember from it!
