I always pride myself in giving 150% for my customers and love to go above & beyond what is expected of a DJ. My goal is not to gain "satisfied customers" I feel most companies can achieve this - I am only happy when I have completely exceeded your expectations! Many of my previous customers have referred my DJ services to their friends, co-workers and family and that is very important to me, some have even become good friends. Here are some of the responses I've had...
"Working with Brent is a pleasure. He DJ'd our staff Holiday Party this year and it couldn't have been more successful. He is adept at reading a crowd. His timing for the right tune at the right time is impeccable and as such, he was able to draw even the most unlikely of dancers out onto the dance floor. I look forward to working with him on future events for Pixar Canada"
Olivia Price, Pixar Canada (Christmas Party + Wrap Parties Dec 2010, April 2011, Oct 2011)
"We worked with DJ BFad for two events for Groupon in Vancouver. DJ BFad was great to work with! He played the perfect variety of music at both of our events which had very different audiences. He was energetic, friendly and professional. We would definitely work with him again next time we host events in Vancouver!"
Stacy Herpe, Groupon/Chicago Office (Shangri-La Hotel & Art Gallery, March 2011)
"If I had to choose the top 3 investments we made for our wedding DJ BFAD would make the list. Not only was the dance floor bumpin' all night, he was amazing to work with. In my opinion DJ BFAD will be the cause of iPod weddings becoming extinct."
Jon Rees, Senior Marketing Manager Vancouver Whitecaps FC (Jan 1, 2012)
"I have had the pleasure of working with Brent on a number of weddings for the last three years, and he has also been a great supporter for the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes Vancouver event during that time period! Brent is incredibly talented at what he does - providing great music to get people up and dancing, but what sets him apart from others in his industry is that he is a true professional. Looking forward to collaborating on many more events together in the future with Brent!!"
Sacha Chin, Owner at Wish Events Inc.
"Brent was the perfect choice for our grand opening party! He was a pleasure to work with and provided exactly what we were looking for in terms of music for our important event. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone - corporate or otherwise - and I would definitely call Brent for our next function."
Erin Shilliday, Strategic Account Manager - Government Affairs at The Global Group
"We were so fortunate to have Brent DJ my mother's 60th birthday party! I have hired several DJ's in the past for work and family functions and no one compares to Brent. He is definitely the best DJ I have ever encounted. He did an absolutely fabulous job! He definitely went above and beyond my expectations! He has a unique gift as he is able read and interact with a crowd to ensure each and every person has a great time. He had our whole party on the dance floor the entire night...my feet are still sore! Everyone, from my 30-year-old brother to my 86-year-old grandma, has been raving about him since the party. I will definately use Brent for future functions!"
Courtney Keith, Organizer for Mother's 60th Birthday Party (Brix, Feb 2011)
"Brent is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I received very positive feedback from our employees who loved the variety of music and appreciated his willingness to take requests. He went over and above what was expected to provide a memorable evening of entertainment."
John Barry, BC Assessment (Education Seminar, May 2011)
"Thank you so much for making our Christmas party a night to remember! You were amazing and kept everyone of all ages boogying! Everyone is raving about the music and how much the DJ rocked! I will for sure be using you again for any other parties I plan or will recommend you if I hear of anyone who needs a DJ. You are amazing and I’m reaping the benefits. THANKS!!"
Megan Giordano - Barrick Gold Corporation, Hyatt Hotel (Dec, 2010)
"Your professionalism and initiative to get people up and dancing was awesome and totally appreciated. When I came across your website, it seemed to describe you as the perfect DJ for our party and you truly were. I look forward to having you with us at future gatherings!
Thanks a bunch, you helped make my parents anniversary one they won't forget!"
Melissa Lim - Organizer/Parents 40th Wedding Anniversary (Nov, 2011)
"Saturday's party has been the chatter ever since! You did a FABULOUS job! My feet still hurt! Thanks for dialing in the crowd so well. Several people have requested your contact info, so don't be surprised if some random person calls you."
Vita Kalns - Organizer/Surprise 40th Birthday Party, Corduroy Kitsilano
""What can I say.... we had THE most amazing day we could have hoped for and a HUGE thanks has to go to you. The music was absolutely perfect, you listened to our suggestions and managed to get it absolutely spot on. We have already had many comments about how good the music was and people asking us how we knew you! You caught the beach vibe during the day and I couldn't believe how packed the dance floor was all night. On top of that, I really have to thank you for reading the day perfectly, advising and helping out liasing with the Brock House staff, the piper and the MC on what was happening to keep things ticking along and on time. I thought you were unobtrusive but available, attentive and surprisingly refreshed looking at the end of a very long day! I loved how we were able to move seemlessly from Scottish ceildh straight to the Black Eyed Peas and never missed a beat to really kick off the party. I am not usually at a loss for words, but I think you knew how important the music was to us as our friends like to dance(!) and I did not worry about a thing all day long. You are awesome, I think I might have to gatecrash your next wedding!! Brent, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who asks (or doesn't ask!). HUGE HUGE thanks - you are the best!"
Jackie & Russell, Wedding Couple, Brock House
"Thank you so much for an amazing DJing job! I have to tell you that I’ve been to and thrown many events and in all honesty you have proven to be the BEST DJ that I’ve ever experienced. You did fabulous job, really provided an amazing experience for our guests and happily kept us die hard dancers going until the bitter end!"
Tannia Ellingham, Surprise 50th "James Bond Theme" Birthday Party
"Brent has been a DJ at
numerous parties and events that I have attended so when it was time for my own
big birthday bash, I knew I had to have Brent (DJ BFAD) as our DJ. With all the logistics involved in the party
planning process, there was one thing that I was sure of --- that my guests would have a
fantastic time partying and dancing the night away to Brent’s fabulous and
audience appropriate selection of tunes.
Since I had much catching up to do with many friends, Brent gave us some
upbeat background tunes low enough to allow my guests to mingle. When the time was right, Brent knew
exactly what to play and got the party rocking. Thank you Brent for making my
special party one that I won’t forget and neither will my guests."
Debra Thompson, Interior Decorator and Architectural Colour Consultant
"One thing that makes or breaks a party is music and I have to say, DJ BFAD MADE our party...more specifically our wedding! Not having much experience looking for a DJ, I did what any clueless bride-to-be would do, and did a Google search for DJs in the Vancouver area. With endless options of DJ companies – large and small, I had a really hard time narrowing down my search. I spoke to quite a few DJs over the phone and one that stuck out to me the most was DJ BFAD. We met in person and I knew right away that Brent was the right guy for the job. Completely laid back and yet totally professional, Brent is everything anyone could want in a DJ. He has a vast knowledge of music, is passionate about his job, is professional and organized, and creates a vibe that makes people just want to have a good time. He went out of his way before our wedding and during it to make things perfect and he kept the dance floor packed all night long. Brent actually went to our venue a few days beforehand on his own accord to scope things out so that he would be prepared on the day of our wedding. He also asked for our itinerary two weeks before our ceremony (which we were still working on!). In many ways, Brent was more organized than we were and he was always quick to offer a helping hand wherever possible. Brent is flexible and is able to to give as much or as little guidance as necessary when it comes to playlists. We actually only gave him two song requests – one was for our first dance and the second was for the father/daughter dance which he actually suggested. I would without a doubt recommend DJ BFAD to anyone looking for a professional and dynamic DJ. You won’t be disappointed!"
"I was very lucky to secure the services of DJ BFAD, on short notice, for my wife's surprise birthday party. Brent showed up on time for set-up and was ready to go before I knew it. He was already at the party when I got there but I was told he was integral to helping create the quiet room that surprised my wife. He found every song I requested, including a couple of oldies to make my father happy, and I can't remember the last time I was at a party, that wasn't a wedding, where everyone danced so much! He kept the dance floor packed and the vibe going till the wee hours. Disco, Latin, Top 40; Brent had it all. I would hire him again in a minute. Thanks again Brent!"
Robert Pacey, Pacey + Pacey Design
"We have used Brent Faddies (DJ BFAD) exclusively for all of our events over the last four years. As an organization, we are free to choose our supplier of music each time we hold an event and we choose Brent because he knows how to read the crowd and play the best music to keep them in the groove - whether it's chill dinner or serious dance music. He is both a consummate professional and a creative musical force; a rare quality to find in any individual. We will continue to use DJ BFAD for as long as we hold events because of the positively glowing feedback we get from guests each and every time. People want him back and you will too...trust me."
Jay Lundy, Chairman 2010 Canadian Squash Championships, Jericho Tennis Club
Nicole Reinert & Jeremy Wallace, Mt. Seymour Wedding Couple
"You hold an event, you need energy. Brent provides energy! But not just any kind of energy, just the right kind for your event. We used Brent and he understood exactly what we needed . . . and delivered. Highly recommend.”
Mitch Tarr, CEO/Founder, ZinMarketing Inc. www.zinmarketing.com
"Vancouver DJ Bfad did an awesome job at our going away art show and party. His music selection was a perfect fit for the occasion . . . as always. I know that when BFAD is DJing a party, it’s going to be fun. It’s that simple.”
Debi Grupe, Napa CA Artist www.debigrupe.com
"DJ BFAD was a fantastic choice for our wedding. From our first meeting, he was genuinely interested getting to know us as a couple and finding out what our specific ideas were for the big day. He made awesome suggestions and gave insightful advice. The music he played at the reception kept the party (and dancing) going all night!! Everyone commented on how awesome the music was - from the grandmothers to the teenagers! He was highly reliable, punctual and detail oriented. In fact, he was the one part of the wedding that we felt we did not have to worry about! Thank you Brent - our wedding would not have been the same without you!!!"
Sarah Coad & Tyler Ow, Wedding Couple UBC Golf Course
"Having a live DJ spin our saturday morning Barre Fitness class was great... having DJ BFAD spin live during our saturday morning Barre Fitness class was AMAZING!!! Brent has such an amazing energy and the ability to make all of our events shine. He has a good understanding of what the crowd needs, be it our grand opening soiree to our Barre Bootcamp class. I would highly recommend DJ Bfad for you next event."
Ella Jotie, Owner - Barre Fitness
"DJ BFAD was so great to work with, super easy going and willing to do anything to make our night special! We couldn't have asked for more, every song was better than the last!!"
Jessie Grunberg & Jamie Kasza, Wedding Couple, Brix Restaurant
"We had lots of phone calls today, everyone saying it was the best party ever, and all said how perfect the music was. You did a great job so "Thanks a lot" you kept the floor packed until the end. Most said they didn't want it to end."
Gerry Waller, Surprise 50th Birthday Party, East Delta Hall
"We hired DJ Bfad for our wedding, and he couldn't have done a better job. Prior to the event, he provided a 2hr consultation and answered all our questions and emails promptly at no additional charge. The music was exactly what we wanted with no problems during the ceremony or the 5+ hours of dancing. It is obvious that DJ Bfad is an experienced, professional DJ and I would hire him again without hesitation. Thanks so much!"
Zach Duerr and Karen Costa, Wedding Couple, Grouse Mountain
"Brent, thank you so much for making our wedding a night to remember! You have an amazing talent for reading the crowd and giving them what they want. The dance floor was never empty. Also, thank you for taking the time to get to know us and our music style. The choices you made were a real reflection of Neal and I as a couple. I felt wrapped in musical loveliness all eve. I only wish we could do it all over again! Perhaps a wedding vow renewal down the road. We hope you're available!"
Tracy & Neal Uchida, Wedding Couple, Performance Works, Granville Island
"Brent, Thanks so much for an awesome day...and night. We appreciate all your efforts in searching out our favourite tunes as well as the hard to find Irish numbers. The dance floor never emptied and we've had really positive feedback from friends and family. We hope you had fun too. Cheers"
Damien & Ang Stoneham, Wedding Couple, Vancouver Rowing Club
"Dear Brent (DJ BFAD) Thank you so much for your awesome DJ-ing at our wedding! From the moment we contacted you about playing at the wedding you've been patient & professional! We had such a blast and I could not stop dancing. Thank you for being great about taking requests and keeping everyone moving!" "We were so happy that you were our DJ -- you certainly helped us live up to the "cool beats" that we promised our guests. You certainly read the crowd and kept everyone dancing all night. Our friends and family have commented on how great you were."
Kirsten & Steve Clarke, Wedding Couple, Lind Hall, Granville Island

You very well prepared and very open minded to our wishes and our music tastes (even though they were not even in English in some cases!). The evening went very smoothly and seeing everyone dancing even after midnight was a sign that the music was well enjoyed! We would be more than happy to recommend you to friends and family!"
Alex Gutica, Wedding, Cascadia Hotel
"I have had the opportunity to observe Brent (DJ BFAD) at several special social events in which Brent was the the DJ. Most of these events have been squash tournament dinner parties and fundraiser events. Brent has presented himself in a very professional manner and most importantly, he is skilled at finding what keeps the interest of the audience high. Brent has made excellent choices in music selection for the different events. Each of these events, he customized the rhythm and flow of the music to meet the needs of the customers. I highly recommend Brent for DJ events and if I have an event that requires a DJ, I would contact and hire DJ BFAD."
Lulu Chou, Senior Professional Representative, Merck
"I have attended many events at which Brent (DJBFAD!) was the DJ. He has an excellent ability to sense the mood of the group he's working for and play music appropriate with the event and the attendees. He consistently entertains, whether with tasteful background music or music to entice people onto the dance floor. Brent is a reliable business person with great people skills and work ethic - it's an easy choice to hire him as a DJ. Great Results, Personable, On Time"
Dara Sklar, Internet Marketing Expert for www.RealtySupport.ca & www.RealWebsites.ca and Instructor for www.Reachd.com
"I have experienced Brent's expertise as a DJ on several occasions over the past year at a wide range of events, from low key social gatherings to large theme parties. He has a broad scope of music knowledge and has the gift of making sure that everyone has the chance to get up on the dance floor and is entertained. I highly recommend Brent and am very much looking forward to working with him on several of my Fashion Show projects this upcoming Fall season.”
Diane Gagne, Fashion Show Stylist/Producer,www.dianegagne.com
"I've hired Brent on multiple occasions to provide entertainment at cafe grand openings. Not only did he display professionalism in his craft and the way he interacted with people bustling about and jarring his equipment, but he was more than happy to field requests (& thankfully, turn a few away). I highly recommend DJ BFAD for any occasion you want people to enjoy the music. Speaking as an Audiophile, he has always impressed. If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact me.”

Sean - Groom, Wedding, Royal Vancouver Yacht Club
"Dear Brent, I just wanted to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for coming last night. I wanted you to know that because of your effort and that of our staff, volunteers, guests and clients we raised $X last night to give to the Union Gospel mission. A spectacular gift for people that will be so grateful and thankful this Christmas. Thank you so much! You have a way with music and your choice for the evening was perfect.

You got it! and it was so obvious."
Tracy, Bride - Performance Works, Granville Island
"Hey Brent, I just wanted to let you know that I believe that last Saturday night was the best squash party ever hosted by Jericho. I have never seen the dance floor so continuously packed with so many people. Every song you picked was a winner. Well done and thanks. That night will be remembered by everyone for a long time."
Carolyn Russell, Jericho Event Attendee
“Brent has provided us with exceptional service in an industry that often lacks it. His professionalism and attention to detail made our work worry free, and allowed me to focus on other elements of the events he was involved with. His versatility allows him to entertain a wide range of musical tastes, and enlighten audiences to new music and artists.”
David, Event Planner
"Brent really nailed the music. The dance floor was packed and mixed with young and old alike! A memorable evening indeed with minimal cheese and a healthy dose of recognizable tunes that everyone felt comfortable to dance to. Our guests are still talking about the music at our wedding. It's likely even more memorable than our "I-do's"!"
Stephanie Gatto & Tim Dickson, Wedding Couple, Shaunessy
"We are so happy we chose you as our dj for our wedding. We received so many compliments about both the music and yourself from all of our wedding guests. Everyone loved the music and had a great time dancing the night away. You had everything that was requested and did an absolutely wonderful job mixing it up. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Please feel free to share my comments with anyone and if you ever need any type of personal reference please don't hesitate to email me or call me. I'd be more than happy to tell any of your potential clients what a wonderful job you did!"
Jen Bergeron & James Conn, Wedding Couple, UBC Botanical Gardens
"We just wanted to thank you for doing such a great job at our wedding. The music was wonderful and the dance floor always full. At one point I thought "hmmm, this dance floor is a lot smaller than it looks" just because there were sooo many people on it. Our expectations of you were totally met and then some. You were so helpful from the first time we met and we appreciated all your help and feedback through the planning process."
Nicole & Jordan West, Wedding Couple, Morgan Creek Golf Course
"Brent DJ’d our September 18th nuptials. He is very helpful and easy to work with. He calmed our nerves and made us feel at ease. Brent is very accommodating and arrived early for set-up and stayed late for take-down. He had all of our guests on the dance floor from start to finish. Brent helped make our wedding a fun and lively event and was a wonderful addition to our wedding day. I would highly recommend Brent. Having a good DJ at our wedding made all the difference. Brent brought all his own equipment including lights and speakers. Thank-you Brent!!"
Jen Crombie, Bride, Teahouse in Stanley Park
"DJ BFad was amazing!! We could not have asked for a better DJ for our reception!! We’re still getting compliments about him from our friends. Brent did such a great job outlining the night for us, giving us advice on the flow for the evening and he really took the time to understand our vision for our reception. He listened to us about what we like, what we thought people would dance to and made sure we had a ‘do not play’ list (thank goodness). During the reception, he did a phenomenal job reading the crowd to ensure we always had a packed dance floor. I’ve been to receptions where the DJ doesn’t really ‘get it’…Brent ‘gets it’ and we feel so fortunate he was our DJ. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking for a DJ for any event – you’d be lucky to have him!! Thanks again for helping to make our reception as perfect a night as we could have imagined Brent (DJ BFad)."
Michelle and Brett Cranston, October 23, 2010 - Lind Hall - Granville Island
"Brent was very professional in his approach from the word go - being available to assist with pre-wedding planning and asking all the right questions to tailor the evening's entertainment. Brent has an extensive music database with all of our favourites, and played songs that appealed to all of our guests - old and young. Many of our family and friends have commented that our wedding was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to. Thanks Brent for helping make our special day such a great success!"
Stephen Ott, Groom - Capilano Golf & Country Club
"Why Rainbow Groove Matters? Review of Rainbow Groove radio show CITR 101.9FM 9-10:30pm (2008-2010). Stimulating, funky, smooth and unpretentious are just a few thoughts that come to mind when I think of Brent AKA DJ B-Fad's musical vision called "Rainbow Groove." Lots of DJ's in Vancouver can lay claim to being able to conjure up a mix of dance, groove, soul and hip hop, but none seem to have the basic understanding of providing an atmosphere conductive to having a groovy good time with the ear candy that Brent is consistently able to serve up. Spinning for three years now on CITR in the coveted 9 pm to 10:30 pm Friday evening time slot, Brent has been the spin-meister setting up listeners for a fun night out. His sense of mixing various musical genres is positive, energetic and youthful, making sure to give respectful nods to classic musical recording artists of the past, weaving newer musical trends into a truly unique listening experience that appeals to a broad spectrum of listeners. Brent is truly someone who has built up a loyal listener base that will follow him!”
