Does Brad do weddings??
You bet! Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a price for a 3-4 hour wedding reception, and that includes DJ-ing AS WELL AS his fun acoustic performance. Brad "DJ's" when he's not performing (breaks, requests, events like garter toss, etc.). He MC's the entire reception also. He gets hired for 6-12 weddings a year, most of them end up being some mixture of live music and DJ... all depends on the crowd.
Brad says, "I've gotten pretty good at feeling your party out and proceeding accordingly, but if you feel like I'm playing too much or DJ-ing too much, just come up and let me know, no offense will be taken. Like I said though, I've got it pretty figured out."
Usually the "events" (father/daughter, bouquet toss, etc.) are DJ'd so he can MC over the song. Then when he takes a break from playing and singing (inevitable), he packs up the dance floor with the laptop. It works great, probably the best thing about booking Brad... you get both!
He provides his own PA system, as well as lights. If you decided to book Brad, he would send you a contract and require a deposit of to hold the date. He'd also send you his "Wedding Planner Packet" for you to fill out to help ensure a fun evening.
