Our Clients Say It Best

"Don't be confused thinking Brian Kirk and the Jirks are a standard wedding band. Each musician is talented and professional. These guys played Zeppelin, The Darkness, Sinatra, Bruce, Meatloaf and Billy Joel BEFORE dinner. What other band is that versatile?"- Matt (11/18/17 wedding)

"This band is beyond amazing. My wife and I had the time of our lives. Our guests were dancing from the time they stepped foot into the reception until the last song was finished."- Nick (9/9/18 wedding)

"From learning new songs in preparation for your big day to feeling the crowd and playing the right songs in the moment, this band does everything in their power to make sure you and your guests have the best night possible!"- Kelsey (5/19/18 wedding)

"The band put on a show that rivals most concerts either of us have ever been to. There wasn't a moment all night where people weren't dancing and singing along."- David (3/24/18 wedding)

"From the first contact through the end of the wedding, and even checking in afterwards, our experience with the band and management was nothing short of amazing. All of our concerns were addressed in our initial communications, and come wedding night, we had a tailored soundtrack to the best night of our lives. "- Jen (8/26/17 wedding)
