Brandon was actually our Limo driver for our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a more professional person. He was very courteous and helpful with any questions we had. We also went through his company to book out photo booth for the evening. It was a blast! Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had.

Brandon is an amazing dj because he is more then just a dj. He is the most helpful person when you are planning your wedding. You need to book him asap so he can give you the one thing you get from him that most people do not share, knowledge. He knows all the good vendors, all the good locations, and all the best ways to make your day perfect. He gets an A+ on his music knowledge though. He sits down and really gets to know you and your preferences. As long as you are open and honest with him about what you want (which is easy to do because he is so friendly) then you will have the best night of your life!

I'm so happy that my wife and I decided to use Brooks Music's DJ service for our wedding. Brandon was very professional, courteous, and flexible throughout the entire process. I had been at a few weddings he had done in the past, so I knew he was good, but I didn't realize how much he did besides just play music. Brandon was instrumental in helping keep the wedding on track and everything flowing smoothly. Also, It was also a nice touch that he would take drink orders for the head table during dinner (my groomsmen loved this). We only requested a few songs to play because we trusted that Brandon would have a playlist that kept people on the dance floor, and he definitely didn't appoint. The dance floor was full the whole night! It's been 5 weeks since the wedding, and I have already had close to 10 people ask me for his contact info. I would recommend Brandon to anyone that is looking for a DJ for their wedding.

My husband and I are so happy that we went with Brooks Music to DJ our wedding. They are a major reason why our wedding was absolutely perfect! There was not a SINGLE minute of our wedding when the dance floor was not packed. We even attended a wedding the weekend before ours with other Brooks Music DJs and the dance floor was never bare.
Mike and Xavier went above and beyond making sure our dream wedding was a reality. They did a great job keeping the night's events in order and we did not have to worry about a thing. They were even accommodating when each member of our bridal party was introduced to a different song (one was even a parody song only found on YouTube). Mike also did a great job in entertaining our guests while leading the shoe game. We were surprised at how engaged our guests were during all 20 some questions.
Thanks to the great online system you fill out prior to your event and in person meeting, Mike and Xavier really understood our expectations. They not only provided great music across a number of genres, they provided a great service as a facilitator throughout the whole night to make our wedding a complete success.

Brooks music was very dependable and understanding! My main dj Xavier took so much stress off my shoulders. The music and quality was wonderful! Xavier was so involved and showed that he loves what he does and that just made the night even better! I had a few people want to know brooks music information so they could use them as well! I would recommend them to anyone!!!!!!! :)

I was very happy with Brooks DJ service leading up to the big day, but their services did not quite meet my expectations. Actually, I was frustrated to tears during my reception.
First of all, 80% of the music he played was awful, except for the requests we had already submitted. It probably would have been fine for an older crowd, but my husband and I (as well as most of our guests) are in our 20's, so we don't want to listen to the old stuff. No matter how many times my husband went to his booth and requested that he play more popular music our guests would like (he specifically said rap and hip hop), the DJ did not.

Worse than that, more than 40 minutes after dinner was over and there was time for a little bit of dancing, I was pressing the DJ to move forward with the cake cutting, the garter toss or bouquet, ANYTHING, because my guests were getting antsy. I kept having to visit his booth and ask him, but he kept pushing me off and telling me "soon". As if I was bothering HIM.

Probably the most insulting part of the evening were his seemingly innocent remarks into the microphone throughout the dancing part of the evening.
Back-story here- I am a military bride, and my husband and I were getting married 2 months prior to moving out of state. All of my family, as well as most of my good friends, are from far away. Most of them did not have the funds or transportation to get in state for the event, so most of the guests were the grooms' friends (male, with their dates).
Every 10 minutes or so the DJ would come onto the microphone (even though the dance floor was going) and say REPEATEDLY "I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A WEDDING BEFORE WHERE THERE ARE ALL GUYS DANCING", "I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A WEDDING BEFORE WHERE THERE ARE NO GIRLS ON THE DANCE FLOOR".
That honestly ruined my night, because most of my best friends couldn't be there, and clearly the bride is mainly held responsible for the attendance of female guests.
He could have been more professional.

Brandon was absolutely amazing to work with! He was willing to meet me more than half way each time we met as he is located over an hour away from me! His assistant Earl was just as wonderful the night of out wedding! These two kept our party going ALL night! They took drink orders for our bridal party during dinner. Brandon was very good about making sure everything that we needed to get done was timed accordingly without actually worrying me about the time! My dad has a friend who would have entertained our wedding for free but I couldn't pass up Brooks Music when I read the reviews, I decided to spend a little money and take a chance and I wouldn't take that decision back for anything, even my dad said he did an awesome job and was definitely worth the money we could have otherwise saved! I wouldn't change anything about my experience with Brooks Music and I will definitely recommend Brandon to every bride I know! I also highly encourage purchasing the Photo Memories Slideshow with your package. His dad does an outstanding job and everybody at our wedding loved our slideshow! Thank you SO much for making our night unforgettable Brandon & staff!! :) <3 Jaimie and Chad Bessmer

Brandon was hands-down the easiest to work with of all of the vendors for our wedding. He prides himself on his responsiveness, and (especially if you are not local) it is really helpful to get a response quickly (before you forget).

He offers all kinds of different services. We highly recommend the video. He calls it a video slideshow, which is technically accurate, but this is nothing like a powerpoint. We weren't originally all that interested in having a slideshow, but it was so well done that we were absolutely thrilled that we did.

If you are planning a wedding, something will come up last minute. For us, that was a necessary adjustment to the schedule. Not only did Brandon work around us, he also comforted our fears that it would throw everything off. He was even able to shift things around for us in the middle of the reception to take better advantage of time. Basically, he made sure everything went well. We couldn't have asked for more.

Somehow I am into a fourth paragraph without even mentioning playing music. Brandon did a great job with music selection. While some of my friends thought we weren't up to the task of picking reception music, Brandon took our choices and really got the crowd going. (Sidenote: Brandon's website is amazing for planning, especially if you are out of town. You can plan the entire reception, including song choices, on your own time.) When we were looking for DJ's, we thought song selection was all we needed, and Brandon was great. But having gone through the experience, I can say that it is invaluable to have a DJ that takes care of everything -- because he will have a solution before you even realize you needed to make a decision. When you have a million things going on, you will be very happy to have him.

My now-husband, Brian, and I knew at our consultation we had to have Brandon as our wedding DJ. He was so friendly and was open to our ideas and thoroughly answered any questions we had. The online planning tool on their website is great, and I've told so many people about it. It allowed us to take the time to figure out our playlists and special music, along with our "do not" playlists. It was so helpful in making sure we had all of our bases covered. At our wedding, he and his assistant got the bridal party set up with drinks and kept us on schedule for all of the big things (special dances, cake cutting, etc.). Our guests really enjoyed him and we ended up buying an extra half hour since everyone was still up dancing! I would absolutely recommend Brooks Music to anyone!

There is not a SINGLE person that we would not recommend Brooks DJ Service to!
From start to finish, Brandon and Mike were the most helpful, professional people we have ever worked with (wedding or not).
The day we met Brandon and Mike, it was clear that they wouldn't let us worry about anything, not only on the wedding day but also throughout the entire process. They never made us feel as though our questions were dumb or that we were asking the wrong questions - even though I am sure they've been asked them a million times (or maybe not, and they really were crazy questions)..Even last minute, when we called Brandon, he went out of his way to make sure our wedding was perfect for us.
The day of the wedding, Xavier was there waiting for us at the church ready to do whatever we needed. Our ceremony music wasn't traditional and they never questioned us. The music was the perfect volume and perfectly timed. He was prepared and professional.
At the reception, Mike and Xavier blocked guests from seeing us as we walked into the hall, took our drink orders, and are the sole reason we kept on track. They thought of us and consulted with us if anything a guest requested seemed "out of our style". They understood completely what we wanted and were focused on making sure our wedding was perfect for us and our style.
One special touch that we will never forget - Mike offered and went out to our vehicle to get our son's diaper bag so that we didn't have to take a moment away from our guests! Words will never describe how small things make such a big difference! True, genuine, thoughtfulness.
There wasn't a single thing that we had to worry about because everyone on the team had already earned our full trust and proved above and beyond.
The DJ service (ceremony and reception), the uplighting, and the chair covers and sashes proved to be amazing, but the security, trust, and professionalism Brandon and team provided was more than we could have ever imagined!!
