Why do you love what you do?

As cliche as it sounds I love the the power that music has over people, being able to use that power to help people lose themselves in the moment is great responsibility, but also source of joy!

What is you approach to preparing for an event?

I always ask if there is a vibe or a theme for the event. I also want to know the demographics and types of people at any event. Using this information helps me to curate the playlist for the event, and matching the clients desires with my style!

What’s life outside of DJ’ing look like for you?

I live with my wife, little dude and dog in Boston. I’m a craft beer nerd, soccer fan and love to learn new skills… video production has been the biggest one recently!

What’s your Starbucks order?

Grande Nitro in a Venti cup with ice… I would get a Venti Nitro but for some reason Starbucks doesn’t allow it… it frustrates me!

Favorite Artists or Influences?

The Clash, New Order, Daft Punk, ska, punk rock, 90’s hip-hop.

"Brian was a key player in making our wedding such a fun and memorable event.... I highly recommend asking for the uplighting as it really added to the party atmosphere and really made the dance floor pop."

"I LOVED working with Brian for our wedding after party. He came highly recommended from our wedding planner - and now I know why! First of all, his set up looked modern and professional, and seamlessly fit into our decor. I also appreciated the high end lighting options he brought in for us. Most importantly, he completely nailed the music and the vibe!"

Brian and team were phenomenal, helping us have an incredible wedding with great music from start to finish throughout the night! Brian committed to keep our guests dancing and they certainly followed through on that. Brian was particularly helpful and flexible when we had to adjust our ceremony music from a musician to recorded music the week of the wedding. I can’t recommend EventSmith more highly!

I was a planner for a wedding that Brian was the DJ for and I am so grateful the groom hired him. He was added to the vendor roster last minute and he delivered so much service to the couple, was so easy to work with, and a fantastic dj to boot. Professional and responsive from our first email to post-event follow up, I would recommend him in a heartbeat. He truly goes above and beyond to provide a successful experience.
