“Bialeks Music and DJ Dan were excellent parters in all aspects that we asked for their assistance. Not only were they great at creating an amazing music selection that our guests couldn’t stop talking about, but also they were very efficient and responsive across all business processes – planning, contracting, etc. We were so pleased with everything.

We strongly recommend Bialeks Music!”

“My husband and I had a great experience with DJ David Grimm at our wedding! He was very helpful, responsive and organized in the weeks before the wedding, offering a number of suggestions to help us pick the perfect songs for the ceremony and reception.

On the day of, he did an amazing job managing the crowd — he very adeptly transitioned from one key event (such as the first introduction as a married couple) to the next (such as first dance). In particular, I appreciated his professionalism in introducing our friends and family who were giving speeches — he ensured that the crowd was attentive and interested for the entire duration of speeches. His selection of music was also on-point — everyone had a great time and stayed out on the dance floor for the whole event.

We highly recommend working with David!”

“Book DJ Dave Grimm! He was such a professional and everyone loved him! He had the dance floor full all night long! He also worked with my in-laws, who are immigrants from Turkey, to blend in some cultural music to our otherwise very young, American reception. They gave him some very scrappy youtube songs and he managed to make a high-quality mix for us from them! Dave checked with us about any last minute changes/requests, read the crowd so well, and really went above and beyond to make everyone happy. He also did our uplighting.

Bialek’s will work with you on package deals. Just ask!! Overall great local company, great selection of professionals, and wonderful and quick service. Highly recommend.”
