Brian is a true expert in the music industry. His DJ & Entertainment services have always far exceeded my expectations and the end result is a continuous full dancefloor, with guests non-stop dancing, rockin' the house down! He feels the crowd, creates music madness, and makes the party never want to end. He is the master of all Music Masters that makes my job an ease when i work with him. Simply put ......... HIRE HIM !!!!!!!!!  Duncan Reyes, Owner, Wedding Planner & Event Designer


“You were the perfect mix of MC and DJ and didn't speak more or less than we wanted, you were perfect.  Thank you for being such an absolute pleasure to work with, thank you for being so fun, reliable and upbeat.  Not only would we hire you for other events, but we'd love to hang out again too! Thanks again, we loved you.”


“Yes, It was all a dream come true :) You are an amazing DJ, the best ever! We rocked! I am ready to do it all again. It was definitely the best day of my life! More than I dreamed of :)  Thank you!”  Carrie & Todd


"I just love Brian. I know that when I refer clients to him, they will be well taken care of. He goes above and beyond to make the experience for both our company and our clients easy. And it's not just during the planning process...Onsite he is a dream. Setting up on time, managing logistics throughout the event, and breakdown at the end of the event. I have no worries when Brian is at our events. In a word, he is stellar!Mellysa Levy, Event Planner at Sasha Souza Events


“First and foremost, thank you Brian & CeCe  for all of your hard work during our wedding. I could not have hoped for a better experience. Not only did you meet every expectation, my friend, you have exceeded them all! Anyone who can get two families together, who has never met before, and do the “chicken dance” deserves a medal in my book. You did a great job by feeling the mood of our guests, always providing the right combination of music to get everyone moving. Stephanie and I are so grateful for your help, and couldn’t imagine what our wedding would be like without you. You are a true professional in your field, and a talent rarely seen. Stephanie and I wish to congratulate you and your fiancée, and hope your wedding is as beautiful as you made ours.”  Steven & Stephanie Meckler


"You were incredible on Sunday, and Sage and I can't thank you enough.  I've had so many people tell us how much they liked the music.  You played exactly what we wanted and kept people dancing all night!  I mean, everyone from our grandmothers to my 6 year old nephew were shaking down all



"I finally have a moment to write you to express my sincere thanks for everything you and CeCe did for us last night to make my in laws' anniversary party spectacular. You know, I'm the type of person who pretty much has to do it myself, otherwise I don't think it will get done correctly.  I fully expected that I would be running around last night and not enjoying myself and then you and CeCe walked in and everything changed!  You took care of all the tasks that I thought I would be doing, which in turn allowed me to relax and enjoy the evening with my family and friends.  I thank you for that - your professionalism was over and above the call of duty! You also seemed to know exactly what songs to play to get people out on the dance floor, including "I Cross My Heart" by George Strait which is the song my husband and I danced to on our wedding day.  Thank you again Brian and please share our thanks with your beautiful wife CeCe - we so enjoyed meeting both of you and will definitely give you a ring for future events!  I also have your cards and will be referring you to a couple of my friends who are hosting events this spring!  Take care and hope to see you soon!"


“We had such an amazing incredible time and I thank you all for making it  (and I will use his words exactly)  "One of the best days of his life!"  He is still on cloud nine and it will be a long long time until he comes down!  You all sure know how to make a guy feel great about turning 50!  I'll never forget the evening and now we can look back fondly at these photos! Thank you again!” Carol (Mark’s Wife)


 “Thank you for everything.  You were wonderful!  I really enjoyed the music selection.  I will be happy to recommend your company to others.Beth Weiss, WeissComm Partners


"I had the joy of working with Brian while on tour with his comedic/ music entertainment act in the greater Reno, Nevada area as a vocalist. His talent, dedication and quality produced show represented his clientele with fun, memorable, Vegas -Style performances. For me there were turning points during that tour as Brian aided in my own potential as a recording artist. He equally supported his show with other artists with honest expression.  When I first heard Brian's show in the mid 80's- I immediately took notice. His hard work as a producer/ writer/ singer/ & comedian showed our community that you don't need to fly to New York or LA to hear quality, entertainment. Brian is a funny guy with great vision and soul." Lisa Battle, LStyle, Owner/Creative Director, Visual Style Editor/ Music Artist


"As a Wedding & Social Event Planner in the Bay Area, I have worked with countless DJ’s & Entertainers over the past 14 years. Not a single one comes close to the skill and professionalism of Mr. Brian Thomas. Both flexible and dependable, I enjoy working with Brian on events, and as a planner, it is nice to know that Brian will take care of the “flow” of the evening and keep everything on track. I have partnered with Brian on several events in the past year, and with each event, I can tell you that the dance floor was never empty, and a good time was had by all! Facing each celebration with a “can-do” attitude and a smile on his face, Brian is an asset to Associated Entertainment and I would not hesitate to hire him again." Rebecca Flores, Marriott Hotels


"The best entertainer, and band leader I ever worked with. Always on the cutting edge of the industry. I would work with him anytime possible. He's a good business man, and one of my dearest friends. You can go wrong with using Brian for your project." Mike Clark, Music Director, Hitzville - The Show (Las Vegas) / Jabara Records (in association with David Saxe Productions)


Brian and Cece put on the perfect event! From selecting the venue until the last piece of equipment was returned, everything went great. The entertainment, the sound system, the decorations, everything! Everything was handled with professionalism, personality, panache and even punctuality. It was if it was their own event. Randal Blair, Owner at Law Office of Randal Blair


"I have had the opportunity to work with Brian in various capacities over the years. As an event coordinator and producer, he is consistently thorough and detail oriented. Brian brings a wealth of experience in the entertainment industry, and it's always a pleasure to work with him. Extremely personable and "people-oriented", Brian is a wonderful asset to any team!" Steve Bloom

Brian has since opened his own branch of AEC, AEC Marin and has continued to provide excellent service to his clients.

When I first started at AEC I learned a lot observing Brian with clients and asking him questions about the business. I highly recommend working with Brian on your next event or project.DeLuca Bass, Musician, Entrepreneur, & Tech Guy


“Brian, the feedback was very positive. Understand that you were a huge help! Kim loved working the fashion segment with you, and from all reports those who stayed to boogie thought you were a "boogie master". I'm certain we'll be working together again, and will be happy to sing your praises.” Bren, The Junior League of Palo Alto Mid Peninsula



“Just a quick note to say thank you for everything on June 16.  Our guests and maybe more importantly, Zach and I had an AMAZING time! As for feedback, I really can't think of anything.  The overall feeling was amazing - and you were even able to accommodate requests.  We had a great time!” Jen


“We had a wonderful time on Friday.  We thought the party went very well and a big part of that was the music.  It was very helpful to develop the playlists and the agenda (hour by hour) in advance.  It made the evening flow very smoothly.  Molly and her friends were really impressed that you requested a list of songs from her and stuck to it.  It also seemed to me that you and CeCe were very approachable.  The kids seemed very comfortable approaching you both and requesting songs.  I SO appreciated your enthusiasm every step of the way-our phone conversations, our initial meeting, via email, and ESPECIALLY before the party while I was setting up.  You seemed genuinely excited and happy to be there-not like it was just another job or gig for you.  I would love to be a reference for you!  Thanks again!” Wendy


“What can I say…you guys were fabulous…I am pretty sure we would all agree that you and CeCe were the best DJs we have ever experienced.  You were flexible, fun and seemed to really appreciate and enhance the energy on the roof.  I heard nothing but positive comments from many of our friends and family.  I plan to pass your contact info along to anyone who asks. Thanks again…we do this kind of party every few years so you will hear from us again.  We also talked about just having a dance for the sake of having a dance and that got the thumbs up from many people…so we may do this a couple times a year…if so, you guys will be the ones we call. Thank you so much for the contribution you guys made…as you can probably tell, we are all dancing fools so a great DJ team made all the difference.  This party may go down in history!”  Scott and Gaylen


“Tom and I would like to thank you all (sorry its a little late) for your great service and professionalism and how everything turned out for our wedding day!  We thought it was beautiful, modern and elegant - just like what we asked for.  We have received so many compliments from our guests - from the food, decor and details, to the music.  We truly enjoyed ourselves so much and we wouldn't have done anything different!
