-- CLIENT REVIEWS --
"DJ Brian was fabulous! He had a huge smile at every moment and completely ran with every turn the party took."
-- Liz Friedman(Amherst, MA)
"Brian was everything that my husband and I could've asked for in a DJ. He was professional, punctual, and most importantly he did a great job with the music selection. He was also able to provide a mic and amp for some live music during the ceremony, and played piano for us during the cocktail hour. We really appreciated having someone so multi-talented for our event. We gave Brian a smaller list of must-play songs, and with that outline he was able to fill in the gaps effectively with what the crowd was feeling. We didn't have to worry about the music all night. Our wedding was a huge success in no small part because of Brian, and we cannot recommend him enough."
Alison and Dominic (Northampton, MA)
"Brian did a fantastic job at DJing our wedding. He was calm, easy to work with before and during the wedding, and kept the party going. He was really responsive to my finicky music demands! My favorite part is that he provided live jazz piano music during dinner, and it was an amazing performance that the guests loved! I would highly recommend Brian for your wedding DJ!"
Kara Kowalczyk (West Brookfield, MA)
"Brian went above and beyond all of our expectations as a pianist and DJ at our wedding. He proactively reached out to us before hand, he coordinated the ceremony with the wedding planners,his sound system was audiophile quality. And he made it fun! He was flexible and fair when the reception went longer than planned. I haven't been to another reception where the guests were dancing from beginning to end, all age groups Brian had something to keep it going. I highly recommend Brian!"
Brian Kennedy (Deerfield, MA)
"Brian did an excellent job at our wedding. We made a list of songs and he added in his own playlist as well as took song requests from friends and family. Brian was laid back and went along with all my last minute ideas, games, and shout-outs! Everyone had a blast!! It was such a fun wedding and we can't thank you enough!"
Sarah Powell (Granby, MA)
"We hired Brian Bender of Face the Music DJs and honestly, it could not have been more perfect. He was super attentive to our needs, super laid back, super understanding and extremely amazing in every aspect of the night. Brian met with us immediately and put together an epic song list in not much time. He played piano expertly early on, and even broke out a trombone later in the evening. He has a great feel for the crowd and DJs accordingly to their wants and needs. He was a great announcer and drifted around the room, patiently, as speeches got carried away. So beyond grateful we chose him for our wedding day, it was super special!!!"
Whitney Frost (Great Barrington, MA)
We hired DJ Brian for our wedding reception. My favorite thing about Brian is that he is an actual musician on top of just DJ. Played the piano live for our cocktail hour then switched to regular music for dinner and dancing. Brian did a great job mixing in the important moments/songs we had requested, while also taking requests from guests on the fly to keep the evening going. Very laid back but also professional, timely etc. Sound and light equipment was professional quality as well. Would certainly recommend. Thank you Brian!
Matthew Folkes (Northampton, MA)
"Brian Bender was great! We were looking for Irish music for our cocktail our and a DJ for after dinner. Brian was able to provide both of those things! He provided a 3-piece Irish band and then he DJ'd the rest of the night. He was great and everybody danced the night away! We ended up hiring for an hour of overtime because everyone was having so much fun. Highly recommended."
Heather O'Rourke and Rich Laarhoven (Wellfleet, MA)
"We really appreciated Brian's thoughtful presence!
If you are looking to avoid an obnoxious DJ at your wedding, Brian is your person!
Brian was open to the list of music that we compiled. He added when necessary to keep people dancing and he allowed us to make requests.
Brian arrived the day of our wedding knowing just what to do for setup and was calm and confident.
He was very adaptable to our needs and wishes. He was not just a DJ -- he set the tone for our wedding!"
Jen Smith (Deerfield, MA)
"DJ Brian was so laid back and easy to work with. He has a long list of available music and recommended playlists, but I asked for a completely custom playlist within a few weeks of the wedding and he made it happen. He also played jazz piano during the cocktail hour to create a bubbly ambiance without making it difficult for guests to talk and mingle. Everyone raved at how great he was!"
Michelle Accardi (West Brookfield, MA)
"Brian, thank you SO MUCH for DJing at our wedding! You truly did a great job with everything, and also we loved your jazz piano playing during cocktails and dinner. We appreciate all of your hard work and flexibility with music and time frame throughout the evening, and also how responsive you were in our communications leading up to the wedding day."
