We knew immediately that Brian was a great match for us as a couple and for our big day. It is evident that Brian is a music fanatic. He took the time to really pinpoint our musical tastes and thoughtfully used our suggestions. Through out our wedding, Brian checked in with us to make sure we were liking the selections, were on track and ready for the next phase, and he made sure to run any guest requests by us before playing them. We would absolutely recommend Brian for any special event!

We could not be more happier with our choice to hire Brian Garreau! From the start we knew we were making the right decision.. Very outgoing, personal, helpful and funny guy! He had everyone on the dance floor all night! We could not have picked a better DJ and highly recommend Conway Entertainment/Piano Man!

Brian (DJ) and Dianna (assistant who helped us with booking) were AWESOME. Brian had the crowd up and dancing and that is what we wanted. Brian’s upbeat personality is totally reflected in his work. Our guests raved about him. Throughout the night, he checked in with us multiple times to make sure everything was going alright. He also made sure we sat down and ate. He kept the party going. Will and have recommended Brian and PianoMan to everyone. He is the best of the best.”

Our DJ was Brian G, he did an amazing job! I could not of asked for better. Every song we requested he played, he kept everyone on the dance floor, and was extremely professional. Every question we had he was able to answer quickly and  my ceremony and reception could not have gone any better.”

We would definitely recommend hiring this company for your wedding or special event. Overall, we had very positive, timely, and friendly customer service with Diana. She asked us what we were looking for in a DJ for our wedding. Thereafter, she matched us with a DJ who would fit our needs and who also had been to our venue many times – this was an extra bonus since he knew the room well to set up lighting, etc. We met with Brian G. the first time and he was very easy to talk to, has a passion for music, and explained how the process works. He will set you up on their company website where you can start listing out music preferences, as well as other wedding details. A couple weeks prior to the wedding, he contacted us and we met with him again. Brian was generous and flexible with his time to set up the meeting and at the actual meeting. We noticed he truly cared about making the process easy for us – and no stress on the actual wedding day! He is a friendly guy who provided excellent DJ services.

At the wedding venue, we heard him play our requested songs – including the songs we had selected for our cocktail hour music. He was collaborative and accommodating with family members who were going to sing a song/play guitar during the reception. They mentioned to me that they were impressed and pleased with how well they could hear their vocals. Brian also spoke with the officiant prior to the wedding to go over the special details of our ceremony and was open to her preference of microphone. In addition, prior to the wedding, he made sure he touched base with our videographer with regard to the equipment for our slideshow and to assure all of that would run smoothly. Thank you for paying attention to detail Brian and helping to make our special day, so special!!!! We just wish we could relive it all over again, as well as see/hear what we missed. Actually, we will, once we get our videos/photos! :)”

We had Brian Garreau as our DJ and he was perfect. We will remember our wedding forever because of Brian. He was on top of everything. He had everything covered. He didn’t miss a beat. He played everything we wanted, he catered to our guests and he checked in with us to make sure everything was going ok. I can’t say one bad word about the entire experience. Planning a wedding is no joke. Lots of hard work and time so you hope you find people you can work with and Brian was one of those people.

–John
Wedding – 08/09/2014


We had Brian as our DJ, and the night was wonderful! He was a fabulous MC and an even better DJ. He made sure to find out specifically what we were looking for in a ceremony and reception and 100% delivered! It was fun but laid back and classy, and he managed to please all 4 generations in attendance. That is no easy feat! It was a great night made only better by feeling like the music and events were in capable and trustworthy hands.

–Laura
Wedding – 08/02/2014


Brian was our Dj and I couldn’t have asked for better service and entertainment. He was extremely attentive and made sure the party didn’t stop. I got multiple compliments on the music selection and I have to give all of the credit to Brian for the awesome playlist!!

We were lucky enough to have Brian DJ our wedding and he was amazing! At our first meeting he asked us questions to get to know us and instantly we were on the same page. He was funny but professional so we felt very comfortable and made what could have been a stressful meeting very painless. At the wedding he was always one step ahead of us and again kept us feeling stress free. He got our guests up and dancing and they stayed there the whole night. He had props for everyone which was a lot of fun and played great music. We would definitely recommend Brian to anyone looking to have a good time. Also Diana and Adam were great to work with. Diana answered all questions almost immediately and was always happy to help in anyway. Thank you Conway Entertainment!

Brian was extremely helpful on the day of our wedding. He took our input and helped the day flow smoothly. He worked with the various other vendors to keep the day organized. Brian took a lot of potential stress off of our shoulders by being there and going above and beyond to make our day special. We would recommend him to anyone needing a DJ!

Brian went above and beyond for us when we were picking our cocktail music selections. People are still talking about the wedding. I have never seen so many people dancing before! Brian was so great and on top of everything! He let us know how much time we had to finish up cocktail hour, dancing, etc. It was great because when you are in the situation you don’t have time to think. I really enjoyed that he asked us first before playing some songs that people requested.”

There was a variety of music. Everything went without a hitch and Brian kept things going. Everyone had so much fun. We still had a lot of people there at the end just having a great time. We felt very comfortable with the DJ. He was easy to talk to and very helpful with music choices. Brian was excellent with all the requests and got all the formalities out of the way first so it was so relaxing and fun. We had so many compliments on the DJ. We had a lot of compliments that night and my mom got a lot of phones calls from people telling her what a great time they had. Brian made sure when certain dances were done everyone important (moms and dads) were there to watch. He had a nice variety of music for different dancing. He did not put any pressure on anyone to rush anything and the songs and dances were a great mixture. Thanks Brian! My wedding was a very memorable day, and we both enjoyed ourselves very much!

The woman [Diana] I originally dealt with was so nice, so helpful, and so friendly! Our DJ was the absolute best and he made our night PERFECT!! The DJ was better at returning phone calls than I was! He was so helpful! He went over every detail before the wedding and during the event was so thorough without being too present. My aunt specifically requested a song I put on my “do not play list” and me made sure to come ask me before he complied with her request. The dance floor was always packed and the every raved about the party supplies he brought out! The songs were absolutely perfect at all times! It was the most fun I have ever had at a wedding (and I’m not just saying that because it was my own wedding). Everyone raved on and on about how they didn’t want to leave. We could not have had a better connection with our DJ. He was absolutely wonderful and was so professional and friendly. We could not have asked for a better DJ. We loved him!!! We would recommend Piano Man and our DJ to everyone!!!!

Our guests are still telling us what a great selection of music Brian played. We continually have people telling us how much fun our wedding was, and what a great time they had dancing the night away! Brian was FANTASTIC! We would highly recommend him for any event, but especially a wedding. His playlist was so much fun for all of our guests (young and old), and EVERYONE was on the dance floor the whole night. We still have guests that are singing his praises!

All of our questions/concerns were answered completely and in a prompt manner. We felt very comfortable dealing with Piano Man during the entire process. Brian also kept in regular contact during the planning to see if we had any questions about his services and just to see how wedding planning was going. It was wonderful to feel that the DJ actually cared about us. Keeping in regular contact with Brian afforded a pretty high comfort level. In speaking with him during the time leading up to the event it felt more like talking to a friend as opposed to just another vendor. Everything went according to plan. If there were an option to rate Brian better than excellent here, we certainly would… all of our guests had an outstanding time. (Friends and family are still talking about what a good time they had… even the people who don’t dance were on the floor!). The dance floor was full the entire night… enough said! Diana was awesome to deal with. After our first meeting when we were looking for a DJ, we left our meeting with Diana and felt confident that the Piano Man would provide a great service. She was also very helpful in answering all of our questions/concerns along the way.”

Brian and Matt were wonderful. They made us feel very comfortable and the reception went on without any issues. We truly did not have to worry about anything except having fun with our family and friends. Thanks Guys!!
Brian always responded in a timely manner.
Brian always made us feel comfortable. No worries!!!
Our family is usually a hard audience to please however, everyone was impressed with Brian and his ability to keep the party going. Everyone had a FUN time.
I would recommend not only Brian to anyone but the company as a whole.
Wonderful!

–Beckie and Scott Briggs


Brian is a really cool person and seems like a really great guy. He was very professional and wished to please us in everyway at our wedding. After our first meeting with Brian, we felt very comfortable and at ease about the music portion of our wedding.
Brian made an excellent effort to play every song we asked him to play, and keep in mind we asked him to specifically MANY, MANY songs!
We had an absolute BLAST dancing to the songs that Brian was playing. People of every age were dancing and laughing, it was beautiful.
Several times, I commented on what a great “dj voice” Brian has.
Brian rocked, I would highly recommend him and your dj service again to anyone having a party or wedding.
THANK YOU!!!”

–Eric & Elaine Ewing


All of our guests really enjoyed the music, and everyone had a wonderful time. I’ve never attended a wedding where so many of the guests danced for so much of the wedding!
Brian was very receptive to our ideas and wishes and made every effort to work with us.
Everyone had a fabulous time! I got tons of compliments on Brian’s work.

–Nichole & Daniel Katz


Brian was great! Very personable! He was relaxed and had as much fun as I did. He “coached me through” the day, making me less nervous. He even signed our guest book, which I thought was very thoughtful!! I was extremely happy with the service. Thank you for everything.

–Alisa & Dave Weiss


We truly appreciated that you listened to our ideas. Other DJs that we had spoken with seemed to have a canned schedule and were not open to our ideas. “We’ll play what you want” were the key words were looking for and that is why we went with you! Everyone seemed to have a great time – Brian dealt with a wide variety of musical tastes and I think everyone was very happy with the night.”

–Kristina & Matthew Muller


Some of our music selection was random and the DJ did a good job in “reading” the audience. We had many great comments about the DJ and some relatives with upcoming weddings received the DJ’s information.”

–Nicole & Paul Gordon
“Just a quick note to tell you that Brian did a GREAT job at Susan & Duncan’s Wedding. “


We were all most pleased! Thanks”

–Kathy Wachowski


Brian and your company did an excellent job with our wedding, just as expected. We were very happy with the way everything went. We would highly recommend your company and without question, highly recommend Brian as the DJ. Thank you very much for everything!!
