Brian's Video

Brian's Bio

My name is Brian Keck. I would first like to thank you for considering me as the DJ for your event. People often ask me why I DJ on the weekends in addition to my job during the week. My answer is simple, I love a great party.

Every job in my life has been in customer service, and being a DJ is no different. I believe to be a successful DJ you have to listen to your customer and give them what they are asking for. That is why I believe my communication with you prior to your party can really help set up the “perfect party.” I want to get to know you and know your expectations for the night prior to the event. The night of your event can be very hectic and everyone wants to pull you different ways. The goal of my communication with you prior to your event is to limit the time I have to take you away from your guests and help make the evening as stress free as possible.

Combining your requests for the evening with my feel for what the crowd wants will leave everyone saying, “the music was perfect!” That is my goal for every party. I love this job because even though every crowd is different everyone there has the same goal, and that is to have fun. I hear people talk about doing things like sky diving and bungee jumping for an adrenaline rush. I get my adrenaline rush from watching a dance floor full of people dancing and singing along to the music.

I would love to have the opportunity to meet you and help make your event memorable. You don’t have to take my word for it, just view some of the things people have said about their party that I was a part of in the testimonials. Hopefully, I will talk to you soon.

What Clients Say About Brian

Exceeded Expectations!

Brian K. was the DJ/MC that we chose for our Wedding last month and I am SO glad!! Brian exceeded our expectations! He was super flexible with the adjustments we made and was so personable. He did a really great job of incorporating our must plays and similar music to keep the party going; everyone was on the dance floor the entire night! On top of that, Brian even let my younger brother press play for one of the songs! That meant so much to him and my family! Everyone had a blast at our wedding, we are still getting compliments and a huge part of that was Brian. So thank you SO much Sounds Abound, and especially Brian for helping make our Wedding day so special.

Emily & Michael

We LOVED Brian Keck

Sounds Abound were excellent to work with. They gave us what we wanted and didn’t push us to do more (we had a simple set up). We LOVED Brian Keck, the DJ we chose. He had a strong sense of what kept our guests engaged on the dance floor and handled all of our MCing and special song requests with ease (and a great speaking voice to boot!). The Sounds Abound website makes planning super easy – choosing genres of music for various points during the reception, and allowing you to click on specific songs (their library has EVERYTHING) that you “must hear” and “don’t want to hear”. Brian went above and beyond to find a couple of unique, specific recordings we wanted played at special moments during the reception that were not part of their library. Great experience from start to finish and kudos to “our guy” Brian Keck for being the perfect wedding DJ!

Tina & Jim

Definetely Recommend

Definitely recommend Sounds Abound for both the cost and quality of entertainment. Brian was a great DJ at our wedding because he kept the music going! I also like that Brian did not allow anyone to take the mic without asking my dad if it was ok. We had friends who wanted to give a toast and did not want them to because it would have interrupted our timeline. This was helpful! Recommend doing a meeting with vendors before the wedding so they know what type of music you prefer. Trust me, this comes in handy as you are running around doing a million things the night of the wedding! Also, pass off your timeline so they know when you want certain events to occur. We did not have a wedding coordinator but Brian kept us on track based on the timeline we built him.

Liz & Andrew

Brian is a Great Choice

Sounds Abound provided great DJ and lighting service for our wedding. They were very responsive in the months leading up to the wedding and provided a helpful portal where we were able to select out must play and do not play lists. Brian was our DJ and he was a great choice. We got so many compliments on the music. He was easy to work with and did such a good job keeping the energy going on the dance floor all night. I appreciated that he stuck with our playlists and that he checked in with me throughout the night. I did wish that we would have been able to hear all our “must play songs” but timing didn’t quite allow it. And there were some minor lighting issues during dinner, but Brian was quick to address that with me and I’m sure guests didn’t really notice. Overall, we are so glad we went with Sounds Abound and would definitely recommend them.

Lydia & Brett

DJ Brian Delivered!

We were so incredibly pleased with Brian’s performance at our wedding. Not only was he a great person, but he was very attentive to both of our schedules that night. The wedding was full of people and we didn’t get much time to even be with one another, but the music was exactly what we asked for. We had some odd requests for live versions of specific artists, and Brian and Sounds Abound delivered! You can definitely use us as a reference. We had so many different elements to the wedding, and Sounds Abound was able to provide the equipment! The office was attentive and courteous to all of our requests! Brian did an outstanding job at the wedding. We have been to weddings where the DJ’s are unprofessional, i.e., hitting on guests, acting rude towards requests, and so on. We did not have that problem here! I asked several of our guests how the music was, and they said it was great. We were very specific in what we did and did not want as far as music is concerned, and Brian and Sounds Abound followed in every request. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable Brian!!!

Gina & Mike

Friendly & Professional

Brian was wonderful! He was friendly, professional and made sure we had discussed all day-of details in advance so we had nothing to worry about on our wedding day. My husband and I felt confident that Brian would do a great job and he exceeded our expectations! He read the crowd perfectly and kept the dance floor packed all night long. He was really great about accommodating our last minute requests, too! We would recommend Brian for any of your special occasions

Kelly & Eric

Highly Recommend

This company was recommended to us by two friends that were married before us. They came highly recommended and did not disappoint. They were in great communication with us from the start and listened to what we wanted for our special night. They played a lot of the songs were really wanted and did a great job of reading the crowd. Brian was our DJ. He could tell when we needed to play more slow or fast songs and did a great job of playing what we wanted. He also checked in with us to see if we needed anything and made himself available to us. Brian and Tony did amazing and we would recommend them for any event!

Erin & Dan

Professional Attentive, & Caring!

I just wanted to say how amazing Brian was for my wedding. Brian was very professional, attentive, and caring throughout the planning and wedding. We loved that we were able to customize specific things for how we wanted our music and night to flow and Brian was able to deliver. We cannot thank Brian and Sounds Abound for making our night so special and one to remember! I would recommend this entertainment company and specifically Brian to anyone who is looking for an awesome and fun DJ to work with.

Allan and I had our wedding and we had Brian Keck as our DJ and he was fantastic!!! He was professional, fun, patient, and an overall good time! We got so many compliments throughout the night about how awesome he was! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding DJ! Thank you so much, Brian!

Allan & Heather

Such an Awesome DJ!!

Brian was such an awesome DJ!! The music was exactly what we wanted, and he made sure to check in with us throughout the night to make sure everything was going smoothly and to make sure we didn’t have any more requests. Sounds Abound was easy to work with from the beginning and very responsive to emails/any questions we had. Would absolutely recommend them!

Mike & Kaila

So Lucky to get Brian!

Where to even begin! We were so lucky to get Brian as our DJ. He was so easy to talk to prior to the wedding and understood all the requests we had and had some ideas to share with us as well. He knew we wanted a lot of 80s and 90s music, and he delivered that perfectly. We also had a lot of kids and teenagers at the wedding, and he knew how to get them involved and took their requests, like we asked him to do. We had compliments on the music all night long from so many guests. The dance floor was always busy, even for our smaller wedding. I cannot thank Brian and Sounds Abound enough for making our wedding reception so much fun.

Tracy & David

Absolutely Phenomenal

Brian was absolutely phenomenal. He added to the quality of our wedding with his suggestions of music and organization. We met with him, and he asked pertinent questions concerning our likes and dislikes as well as the make-up of our guests at the reception. He learned the correct pronunciations of the wedding party and made suggestions on how to enhance our wedding. Very importantly we wanted a specific Christian song to be played during the groom/daughter dance. Brian on his own found the song and added it to his repertoire. Our guests complimented us on selecting Sounds Abound. We can’t say how pleased we were by following the recommendations of others to select Sounds Abound and now we are recommending others to follow in our shoes and select Sounds Abound for their special occasion.

Martin & Sharon

Truly Flawless & Professional

Brian, Thank you for your amazing work! You did afabulous job, and we know it wasn’t easy! Between the aunts and uncles song suggestions, all the coordinating with the dinner schedule, etc. you handled everything flawlessly, and so professionally. We truly appreciate you being a part of our day.

John & Lora

Absolutely Awesome!

We had Brian Keck as our DJ for our second reception in Chicago. We had gotten married out of state and then had a Chicago party. We were at Cress Creek. Everything was included except the DJ. We picked Sounds Abound because their website included sample videos of their DJs which was very helpful. We chose Brian because he had the vibe wewere going for. This was a fancy party with several older relatives. He contacted us a few times before the wedding to understand what we were looking for and he paid attention. I told him the types of music we like and that it was a slightly more sophisticated crowd. At some point I happened to mention that I don’t like country music except Garth Brooks and my husband likes Elvis Presley, but I don’t. Brian wonderfully snuck in some of the best of those songs throughout the night. It was awesome to hear them mixed in and we each felt like we got what we wanted. Brian was there and set up before we arrived. He checked in with us throughout the night. He even checked with us to see if I had taken my husband’s name before he said it. So conscientious. Plenty of people of all ages danced the night away. Absolutely awesome!

Taylor & Phil

An Awesome Job

We had Brian Keck DJ our wedding. He did an awesome job. My wife was more involved in setting up the music and we also gave Brian a little freedom to play the music he thought would be best depending on the crowd and dance floor. I was pleasantly surprised how smooth everything went. Brian Keck gets 515 stars and my recommendation.

Brian & Claire

Such a Memorable Night!

We had Brian DJ our wedding from Sounds abound and could not have been happier! There were a few last minute changes we had to make to the original spreadsheet we went over with him due to an illness & Brian made sure everything went smoothly. Our friends and family have been raving all weekend about the music and how awesome the DJ was. My little brother is very into music & Brian was chatting with him about DJ/NG. Its really being so personable & fun that is rare to find these days. All of my close friends have used sounds abound for their weddings and we could not have been happier. Brian knew when to play the right songs at the right moments. He personally sent me a video of all of our close family & friends singing around us at the end of the night. Thank you so much for such a memorable night!

Lisa & Alex

Above & Beyond

Brian – you went above and beyond! From your work at the rehearsal, through the ceremony and the reception, you were amazing! Our ceremony was exactly what we had hoped it would be, from the Pachelbel-Rockelbel processional to the custom background for our vocalists. You were so nice, easy to work with, attentive, patient, on point, funny, and put out a wonderful mix at the reception.

Sandy & Bill

A Definite Recommend

DJ Brian played music for both our wedding ceremony and reception. He was kind and courteous to my wife and I both during the planning process as well as the big day itself He made sure to stick to the playlist during the reception, as well as adhered to every special request we put in for music during both ceremony and reception. My wife and I were very happy working with both Brian and Sounds Abound, and would definitely recommend anyone else to do so.

Jamie & Glenn

Cannot Recommend Enough!

We used Sounds Abound for our DJ and Photobooth for our wedding. Our DJ Brian was awesome! He kept the party going and was in constant communication with my husband and I to make sure we were happy and having a good time. People were up and dancing as soon as dinner was over and kept dancing till the very last song. Everyone I have talked to has said it was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding. We cannot recommend them enough!

Paige & Sean

So Patient & Professional

We had a wonderful day! Brian at Sounds Abound was so patient and professional! He was prepared and organized and kept our wedding flowing. He was such a fantastic DJ, and an overall great guy. We would recommend Brian Keck from Sounds Abound anytime.

Sarah & Lirim

You ROCK Brian!!

Brian from Sounds Abound did a phenomenal Job at our wedding. One week prior to the wedding we set up a time to go over our song list and other details of the night. He went over all of the details and even gave some suggestions for some of the ‘sticky situations’ we were expecting. Brian did a great job with the ceremony music out on the patio and was quick to set up the music for the cocktail hour and dinner immediately following. Throughout the night, he kept everyone on the dance floor and having a great time!! Never once was the dance floor even close to being empty! Thanks again, Brian!! You ROCK!!
