Everyone told us it was the best wedding they had been to.
Bryan Mahanes from OtherBrother Entertainment was incredible! He kept every single person on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone told us it was the best wedding they had been to because they had such a blast at the reception. I highly recommend Bryan, he did a fantastic job!
We could not be happier with Bryan Mahanes as our DJ for our wedding. The planning process was so easy and he did a great job allowing us to send him song names and gave us his opinion. Bryan played guitar with Alex Agrest on the violin for our ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful as the music really set the tone for our guests. They also played during our cocktail hour. Bryan then went above and beyond in helping plan ahead and organize a surprise song with him on guitar, our bridesmaid singing and family member playing the saxophone. It was so personal and beautiful. Bryan was the DJ for our reception and had our guests on the dance floor the whole night. He did an AWESOME job of transitioning and combining songs. We never had a chance to sit down because we loved every single song. Bryan added so much to our wedding and we received countless compliments on the music!
We have worked with OBE many times and Bryan and his staff are top notch. Every event is always perfect and the detail and dedication to the client is always on their mind. I look forward to each and every show where they are involved! Use them and your event will be perfect, start to finish.

Bryan Mahanes of Other Brother Entertainment is the BEST! Our wedding at Palmetto Bluff was absolutely amazing in every way due in part to Bryan and his dedicated staff. From the many event rentals at our ceremony and reception to Bryan himself as our AWESOME DJ and the WAY cool light show at our after-party, it was all spectacular. Bryan’s professionalism and attention to every detail are very apparent; he was so gracious and promptly responded to any questions or requests we had throughout the planning process.
Our guests still comment on how beautiful and fun our wedding was, and we owe a lot of gratitude to Bryan & OBE for making it so memorable!

Oh Bryan, Josh and I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding one of the best people have attended. People continue to come up and comment on how great the music was for all ages and the non-stop dance party! I loved how right off the rip you had people dancing and had to even tell people to take a seat so they would eat haha!! You were amazing on the acoustic guitar as well for the ceremony and cocktail hour. You are truly amazing and helped make it a perfect day.
Thank you so much!!! You are clearly the best in the business!

When I found out that our wedding coordinator used him for her own wedding, I knew we were set. Bryan managed to introduce every person and timeline events in a non-cheesy but fun manner and remained flexible when our evening did not adhere to the timeline. He knew when to hang back and when to interject, and did an excellent job reading our crowd for song choices. Our guests are still commenting on how FUN our reception was, especially since everyone was on the dance floor all night long! If you are considering Bryan for your own wedding, I can promise that you will not be disappointed!
Bryan is awesome and you should trust this review as a basis to hire him for your event. We did a destination wedding in Charleston and we had to plan the whole thing from Boston. DJ has to be one of the hardest things to pick — a DJ can make or break a party and there’s no way to review one without actually attending an event they are playing at. On a night in which a ton of decisions went our way, the decision to hire Bryan Mahanes to DJ our wedding was the best one we made.
Bryan brought solemnity, smoothness, class and the party. I apologize that this review will be too short to really convey the masterful job that he pulled off. From the timing, pacing and presentation of the ceremony to the handling of the various moments in the evening (the cutting of the cake, the toasts, moving the guests from the cocktail reception to dinner), Bryan hit the perfect note in acting as MC for our wedding. When it came to music, we had selected much of the pre-ceremony music and the processional, recessional, entrance and first dance. We thought we would have the time and inclination to give him a playlist for the dance party. As we tried to build something, we realized that light instructions of what we wanted our party to be would be more effective than a limiting playlist. Bryan brought a vision that was seamless in his mixing of 60s Motown to modern top 40.
The music never stopped, Bryan never stopped AND he entertained requests! My 70-year-old aunts were dancing for an hour and a half. I had my ski buddies bugging out to Rihanna (don’t ask, they’re weird dudes). My bride’s friends went nuts to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”. I write this review from the other side. If I could hire Bryan again, I wouldn’t even think twice about it.

We used DJ Bryan Mahanes for our wedding and he was worth every penny. I struggled with choosing a DJ that fit our style, would have great MC’ing skills, and was able to truly feel out a crowd to know how to keep them going or transition from cocktail hour, to dinner, to dancing and on. First of all, Bryan was super responsive and flexible – he made me feel like he was working with me to make this the best day of our lives, not just another booking or another job. Second, his MC’ing skills and communication to our guests was not only engaging but super effective. Last, but not least, his music was absolutely on point! We actually had a full dance floor before the first course was even finished. If you don’t want to take the word from a biased bride (haha) it may help to know that we even had our guests AND venue staff tell us that it was one of the best wedding party music they had been a part of. You will not regret working with Bryan. He was absolutely phenomenal.

We had another DJ cancel due to his brother getting married on our same day. No worries though he highly recommended OBE and I met with DJ Bryan Mahanes to discuss our style and needs. He was amazing! I wanted classic, shag, and later party music. As we were eating dinner I looked at my new husband and said this guy is good! I’ve loved every song he has played! He also set us up with a mic for the ceremony so everyone could hear our readers despite the breeze. Everything worked out and was meant to be! Thanks, Bryan!
Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It was truly the best day of our lives and we loved every minute of it! Thank you for continually working with us and helping us have the beautiful music during the cocktail hour, our first dances, the dance party we wanted(!) and the perfect music during everything else. I kept telling Tom, “He really knows what music we love. He’s 5 for 5 on the first five songs.” Everything worked out perfectly. We had an amazing day, and truly unforgettable memories.

DJ B Mahanes was better than I could have imagined! We received so many compliments about our DJ and how fun of a wedding we had! I highly recommend Bryan! He made our wedding unforgettable!
After having to postpone our initial wedding date due to a hurricane, DJ Bryan Mahanes was super accommodating in rescheduling. He and the OtherBrother team took the time to learn our taste in music and translated that to the dance floor. Bryan seamlessly mixed oldies with new pop music and had the entire wedding (young and old) up dancing all night long. He also played guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour. It sounded amazing, and was exactly what we envisioned for a beautiful ceremony! All night, guests were coming up to my wife and me to tell us how much they loved the DJ. If you are planning a wedding in the Charleston area, definitely consider Bryan Mahanes and OtherBrother!
Bryan Mahanes was the HIT of the night. He was so easy going, responsive, and great to work with. He caterers to the audience but more importantly to the bride and groom. He went above and beyond to make sure I was happy (the bride). Any questions I had he would patiently and quickly respond. My 215 guests absolutely LOVED him and I couldn’t stop raving about how amazing our DJ was. I honestly could not be happier!!! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night.. to the point we were chanting “one more song” as the night ended. No one wanted to leave. Also – he played acoustic guitar at the ceremony and is extremely talented. We really lucked out. I promise you will not be disappointed with him!
