From bands to DJ’s to soloists to ensembles to specialty groups, we’ve got what it takes to make your event the talk of the town. What’s more, it’s almost as much fun choosing your entertainment as it is booking it. Stop by our Rockville location and we’ll show you a wealth of talent not often found in one place. You can view our entertainment on line, or we’ll arrange for a live presentation. Just rest assured, whether it’s a wedding, a Bar Mitzvah, or your own private theme party, we’ll help you set just the right tone. Strings, brass, rock, Bach, Mariachi, Motown, R&B or alternative, We’ve got it all! If you’re looking for another name or type of entertainment, just ask. We’ll get it. From Caricatures to clowns, or even Jewish Folk, we are at your disposal.
At Bialek’s, we’ll recommend your best entertainment option based on your budget. And that’s not even counting the benefits you’ll get free of charge. Things like reassurance. Everything is planned in advance…What kind of music to play between sets…who will make the announcements. We’ll even come up with contests for the kids or a special tribute to Grandma. We’ll be there- right up to the moment your party begins. And whether you’re hosting a formal banquet or a casual get-together, there’s no question we can’t answer. Because at Bialek’s, we believe in service. And that’s no song and dance.
