Those who hear not the music think the dancers mad
9/16/23 Sea Crest Beach Hotel, N. Falmouth
A HUGE THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work leading up to and during the wedding. Our guests LOVED you – and so did we! We did not plan to dance to Jubel, but couldn’t stop ourselves from immediately jumping on the dance floor when we heard it – and you sounded INCREDIBLE! We’re so grateful that you learned that song for us – truly above and beyond. Aside from that, everything was perfect. We could hear you playing from the room next door as our guests were waiting for the ceremony and it was beautiful. The cocktail hour was so fun with your live music, I kept taking more and more videos. And of course during dinner, too. It was spectacular. All of our guests were talking about it during the after party and the days after the wedding. You truly elevated our wedding to new heights both for us and for our guests. Thank you for all your support leading up to the wedding, the calls, emails, and flexibility. The guides to fill out (and get us thinking about all the different songs). For ensuring we had all the right equipment for all the different rooms (and backup rooms). Seriously – we feel so lucky to have found you.

All our guests raved about you!! I just left a review for you on several of these sites! My favorite compliment of yours was from my cousins: “We are convinced that Tom must be a time traveler because how else could one person gain so many musical skills across a variety of instruments (singing, guitar, flute, saxophone)?!” Thanks again for all your awesome music at the wedding!

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding on Saturday rock! It was such a memorable day and that is largely because of your music. My guests are raving about your talent! From playing all the instruments and DJ-ing and killing it at being the MC, everyone had a blast. You managed to play all my must play songs (2 pages) and then some throughout the day. I absolutely loved it! One of my favorite parts was seeing my one year old goddaughter amazed by you serenading with the saxophone. Thank you for being so accommodating through the ups and downs with the pandemic. You stood by and worked through all the details with us to make it the perfect day. Thank you for learning our first dance song and doing an amazing job. We are so blessed to have you perform on our wedding day! We are happy to write a review or be a reference for future brides and grooms. Thank you for everything.

Do NOT miss out on Tom!!
Our wedding was an absolutely perfect day for multiple reasons, one of them being Tom! Even before we had booked Tom for our wedding day, my wife and I were blown away by how responsive he was to our outreach. This continued to be a common thread throughout the time leading up to our wedding. Any question or concern we had for Tom was always responded to that day in great detail. Of all our vendors for our 2023 wedding, Tom was by far the most kind, accessible, and easy to work with! On top of being a great person, Tom was an unbelievable performer from cocktail hour, to dinner, to our final song of the evening. Many friends, family members, and coworkers approached us to tell us how much they loved the fantastic vibe Tom created from the minute he took the stage. Tom’s varied skillset made for three incredibly unique yet equally enjoyable music experiences throughout our wedding night. During cocktail hour Tom’s serenated our guests with his flute, guitar, and incredible voice. At dinnertime, Tom walked room to room playing sublime jazz on his sax with a huge smile on his face. Lastly, Tom’s ability to seamlessly transition back and forth between DJ tracks to live guitar and singing was the absolute highlight of our wedding. Our dance floor was packed the entire evening for a reason, and that was Tom. His song sequencing, vibey backlighting, and outstanding voice, and guitar & sax playing created the most lively and fun dancefloor for two and a half straight hours! On top of everything already mentioned, Tom went the extra mile to help personalize our wedding to us and truly make it the best day of our lives. He created a backing track and learned the guitar chords for our first dance of Wonderwall and sang this song so beautifully that all our wedding guests joined in song with him. This was one of fifty different special moments that Tom’s unbelievable talent blessed us with on our wedding day. We can’t believe we had the chance to work with Tom and have him share all of his incredible musical gifts with our wedding guests! Could not recommend Tom anymore!

We had the pleasure of having Tom provide the music for our wedding day and he did not disappoint. Tom went above and beyond to make our day so special. From the beginning Tom was professional and made the whole experience so personal. My husband and I were able to send our requests for ceremony as well as a few must plays but other than that we want Tom to have the freedom to do what he does best. He is truly a one-man band, playing instruments throughout our night, as well as DJing. Our guests could not stop raving about how incredible he was throughout the night into the weeks after. We are so happy with how our whole day turned out and we have Tom to thank for that!

Tom is incredible. We were looking for someone who could provide both live music and DJ’ing, and he knocked it out of the park. Our guests loved him, especially his sax playing and jazz flute. On the organizational side, he was incredibly professional, accommodated all of our requests (musical and otherwise), and kept the night running smoothly. He is an excellent communicator, highly available by both phone and email, and seeing how detailed-oriented he was relieved a lot of stress for us In the weeks leading up to the wedding. He has our highest recommendation.
Timothy E. , married on 09/22/2023 Fort Adams, Newport, RI
Not just a DJ, an amazingly talented entertainer. My wife and I can confidently say that Tom Bruhl is not your average wedding DJ. He is a true musical maestro who took our celebration to a whole new level. From start to finish, Tom’s talent, versatility, and his ability to engage the crowd left everyone in awe. One of the most impressive aspects of Tom’s performance was his live instrument skills. Who would have thought you’d hear Jethro Tull being played on a flute at a wedding? Our ceremony music was done on acoustic guitar, live. He switched to sax for cocktail hour. His ability to seamlessly transition between DJ-ing and playing live instruments added a unique and unforgettable touch to the entire event. The way he effortlessly moved from modern hits to classic tunes was like watching a musical chameleon in action. But Tom is not just a talented musician; he’s a true entertainer. His energy was infectious, and he had an uncanny knack for reading the crowd. He knew exactly when to crank up the tempo to get everyone on the dance floor and when to slow things down for sentimental moments. The playlist was a perfect blend of old and new, catering to guests of all ages and musical tastes. I can’t count how many times I heard guests say, “I haven’t danced like this in years!” And “Where did you find the DJ?!! He’s amazing!!!” Tom made our wedding night feel even more like a magical, once-in-a-lifetime experience. His passion for music and his commitment to creating the perfect atmosphere were evident throughout the evening. Tom’s enthusiasm was contagious, and it made everyone feel like they were a part of something truly special. In addition to his musical prowess, Tom’s professionalism and attention to detail were remarkable. He worked closely with us to ensure that our vision for the night came to life. His equipment was top-notch, his lighting setup was spectacular and the sound quality was crystal clear. Tom Bruhl didn’t just DJ a wedding; he helped create an unforgettable evening that left a lasting impression on every single guest. If you want your wedding to be a night to remember, filled with music that touches the soul and an atmosphere that radiates pure joy, then Tom Bruhl is the DJ you need. He’s not just a DJ; he’s a magician who weaves music into the tapestry of your special day, making it truly magical. Bravo, Tom, for an incredible performance and thank you from the heart for making our wedding night a memorable one!

The best combination of live music and DJ you will find We hired Tom for our wedding and we couldn’t be happier! It felt like having a live band as well as a DJ for the price of one, and he was amazing at both! During our cocktail hour he sang and played flute, saxophone, and guitar. A couple guests were even dancing during the cocktail hour. He really had an ability to read the crowd and he had the dance floor full the entire night! We had a lot of guests make comments about how great he was.
Alicia M. , married on 08/27/2022 Chamberlain Farm, Berkley, MA
Amazing, talented, responsive, fun, and kind DJ Jamie and I couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire Tom for our DJ. We knew going into planning a wedding, that the DJ can make or break the party. Tom was absolutely wonderful! He’s kind, responsive, and incredibly talented. Whether he was playing his guitar while we walked down the aisle, singing along with classics, or jamming away on his saxophone, my guests loved watching her perform. 10 out of 10 would recommend. ☺️

You must have been reading my mind. Now that we are home, I was thinking of emailing you to thank you again for doing such a fabulous job at Amanda and Johnny’s wedding. I still can’t believe the events of your flat tire that afternoon! I’m so glad that someone stopped and assisted you. You are definitely a true professional in how you handled the situation! And, in hindsight, given how hot it was that day, we were blessed to be able to have everything inside. We all had a blast! Many of our family and friends commented on how talented you are and how much they (and we) enjoyed all that you did, whether playing, singing and DJing. Simply amazing! We also appreciate your flexibility and willingness to add some of the German songs. I know the Austrians had a great time the entire evening and these extra songs made it fun for them! I’m happy to provide feedback to these sites. It will be very easy to write. Wishing you much continue success!

Tom was absolutely amazing. Very professional, talented and flexible. He was very good with recommendations to make the party better. From the time we met him in person, we knew he was a great fit for our wedding and he was going to perform flawlessly. Then at the wedding everyone was very impressed by his talent and complimented us. We did not get to see him perform a lot, but what we saw was amazing. We wish we can have the opportunity to hire him or see him perform in the future.
J. Victor and Wendy Tsway, 5/5/18, Wedding Reception, Boston, MA
Thank you so much for your wonderful performance during our wedding cocktail hour and reception. It was spectacular, to say the least. Our guests were amazed by your ability to place the right songs at the right time. Not to mention your wonderful skills in both instrumental and vocal performance. We also enjoyed the game you arranged for us as well as the instrumental remix of “All Izz Well.” That was just amazing! My wedding reception was made perfect by you. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!
Nicole-Marie & Robert Theiss, 7/23/16, Wedding Reception, Plymouth, MA
Tom was just the greatest. His music choices were great. He is a very talented person. If we could rate him higher than a 5, he would be a 10 or more. We will recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ.
Cody & Kimberly Dunne, 6/26/16, Wedding Reception, Waltham, MA
Tom was fantastic! He provided DJ and live music for our wedding, as well as the sound equipment for our ceremony outside. The guests couldn’t believe it when they turned and saw him performing live — the transition between recorded and live songs was that seamless and he was that good. We had a big group of children at the wedding, and Tom got them dancing most of the night and had some games for them to play as well. He was also great at keeping the event on track, especially for our introductions, exit, and scheduled dances. I’d hire him again any time I need music!
Allen & Vicki Earls, 10/25/15, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Buzzards Bay, MA
We wanted a wedding that would match the diverse age range of our attendees and hit on some favorite tunes…Tom really listened and delivered exactly the right solution — offering fresh and wise suggestions for us to choose from. We really appreciated his hard work!
Cathy and Ben, 5/9/15, Wedding Reception, Dedham, MA
We want to thank you so much for helping to make our wedding such a wonderful day! We got terrific comments about your music selection and performance from our guests: they were so impressed by your versatility and what a unique musical experience you provided. We love that you considered our eclectic music selections a challenge, and the lengths you went to, getting all the “must play” songs we requested. And of course, we can’t even express how much we appreciate your flexibility with the day’s schedule and staying late- it wouldn’t have been such a great party without you. Thank you again, many times over, for bringing such fun and happiness to our special day.
Caleigh & Preston, 8/9/14, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Laconia, NH
We cannot thank you enough for being such an important part of our special day! Everyone had an amazing time and had many good things to say about you. Again, THANK YOU !!
Justin & Shivaun Miano, 7/5/14, Wedding Reception, Boston, MA
Thank you for a wonderful performance during our cocktail party & wedding reception. Our parents and guests had so many compliments and really enjoyed your live music. From when we first met you at the gig in Southie to when you finally performed at our wedding, the interaction was very professional and delightful. We will definitely leave you a stellar review on Gigmasters.
Sandra & Bob Moulaison, 3/8/14, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Wayland, MA
Thanks so much for all you did at our wedding. The ceremony music was beautiful. My guests were very pleased by your talent! Everything was perfect from pre-ceremony until the last dance of the night. I’m especially thankful for you prerecording my song dedication! You were perfect for our wedding!!
Jessica V, 4/30/2011, Wedding Reception, Newport, RI
My husband and I booked Tom for our Newport wedding based solely on his Gigmaster reviews and his videos. Our family and friends thought we were crazy that we booked him without ever seeing him play live, but he exceeded any and all expectations we could have ever imagined for our wedding entertainment. He is beyond talented having played at our ceremony, during cocktail hour and during our reception. Our guests started dancing before the appetizers were served and NEVER sat down! We were married over a month ago and our guests are still telling us that it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding and I can wholeheartedly say that Tom Bruhl was the difference!
Jen & Joe Bender, 5/27/12, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard
We’re so thrilled we had the chance to work with you at our wedding earlier this year. Your music definitely set a great tone for the event. As we planned together, you were easy to work with and extremely flexible in order to bring your experience for the wedding day. We wanted to Thank You!
Ken C, 5/8/2010, Wedding Reception, Newport, RI
Tom was phenomenal! Easy to work with leading up to our wedding and made great suggestions for songs. At the wedding, he was an absolute hit. I would say over half of my guests commented on his amazing talent performing as well as how good of a DJ he was. With Tom, you get the benefit of a live band and a great DJ and way less than you’d pay for either. I can’t recommend Tom highly enough!
Melissa J, 6/3/2011, Wedding Reception, Harwich Port, MA
Tom was absolutely wonderful – he went above and beyond our expectations and we HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone looking for wedding entertainment. Tom Bruhl is a triple threat; not only is he a great D.J. but he also plays instruments AND sings… we left the song selections entirely up to his discretion for the entire night and he had everyone out on the dance floor up to the very end. Tom drove out to Cape Cod for our wedding to play flute for our outdoor ceremony (gorgeous), he played both the saxophone, guitar and sang for cocktail hour and dinner, and put on a GREAT dance party. I cannot give this man enough praise. Book him you won’t regret it!
Catherine W, 5/28/2011, Wedding Reception, Higganum, CT
Tom Bruhl was an outstanding DJ/musician for my daughter’s wedding. From the outset, Tom was such a pleasure and so easy to work with. He was very prompt with emails, very professional yet genuinely warm and friendly. My daughter found him to be so accommodating with a special project that she needed his help with prior to the wedding. He played sax and guitar during cocktail hour, offering versatility that you would find difficult to replicate in another DJ/musician. He was receptive to requests, solicited playlist favorites before the wedding and played a great selection of music to please all tastes. We loved having Tom Bruhl as our DJ – he was wonderful DJ.
Robin G, 7/4/2009, Wedding, Sturbridge, MA
Tom was perfect in every way. He is like having a live band and a DJ in one. Our guests were very impressed by his talent and at one point when I looked up, I was shocked to see he was performing live because it was so much like the original. The crowd danced all night long and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. He is friendly, professional and immensely talented. Definitely more than just a DJ. We keep hearing from our guests how awesome he is which is all you could ever want when hosting a party of any kind!
Dan D, 9/7/2008, Wedding, Plymouth, MA
Tom Bruhl is by far the BEST! So professional and just a talented musician! Everyone asked me at my wedding where I found him and they’re astounded at the price he charges. Don’t waste your money on just a person to spin Tunes. Tom plays LIVE and socializes when roaming the room with his saxophone. I totally recommend having him play the Wedding March with his classical flute, that was so beautiful as I watched my beautiful bride walking up the aisle to me! Thanks so Much Tom!
Nikole P, 5/24/2009, Wedding, Falmouth, MA
Tom was great!!! I had a hard time finding someone that my now husband and I agreed on because he is a musician and a dj and wanted to do the event himself. I loved the combination of the live performance and djing that Tom provides. When my husband and I looked at Tom for our wedding we were concerned that combination of live and dj would be corny but Tom does it in a way that you would never know the transition. There were times when I had to look up to see if that was him singing. All my guests loved Tom and would not stop talking how we did a great job picking him out for our event. I highly recommend Tom for your event.
Lauren K, 6/14/2008, Bar Mitzvah, Hyannis, MA
Tom Bruhl was amazing from the start. On-line, he was the only one to give a lot of thought and consideration to the particular ideas about what our family wanted the music to be like. His talent is remarkable and so versatile. His musicianship is phenomenal playing several instruments, singing and creating his own recorded backgrounds to play over. He is a one man band and entertaining machine! His rates are reasonable. He is very dependable, on time and so nice and easy to work with! All my guests were so impressed and wanted to know how I found Tom! He’s far from your average DJ and you won’t need to hire a huge band. Tom does it all! Thanks Tom!
Ryan H, 8/27/2011, Wedding Reception, Barre, MA
I won’t lie, my husband and I were a little nervous about living in Texas and hiring a DJ for our wedding in MA without meeting him. However, Tom made the process easy and simple. He was awesome every step of the way. He kept in contact with us, made sure we had songs picked out, and even gave us some suggestions. I had no doubt in my mind that he was going to make our wedding a hit. He was professional, courteous, and extremely helpful whenever I had questions or concerns for him. During the wedding the guests and my husband and I were blown away! Tom has such talent as a performer and he was amazing the entire night. We couldn’t be happier with our DJ!!
Allison B, 11/27/2010, Wedding Reception, Worcester, MA
Tom was absolutely excellent. We had a non-traditional ceremony and Tom jumped in without hesitation, even arranging an accompaniment for the processional and performing it perfectly. Tom is great on the mic MC-ing while not being too chatty as some DJs/Singers are wont to do. He got everyone dancing within minutes of dinner being finished and played every song we requested without fail, even wandering from table to table with his sax for a tune or two. Suffice it to say, we received many compliments on behalf of Tom all night long. Bottom line: Tom is professional, trustworthy, talented, entertaining and more than worth every penny of his fee.
Donna L, 6/25/2010, Birthday Party (Adults), Seekonk, MA
Tom is awesome. He did a great job, and did it with a professional but friendly attitude. Our party was at a country club where there was another event going on. People kept filtering out of the other event (where there was a band), and congregating behind the fence at ours just to listen to Tom’s music. He was loved by every age group. I highly recommend him. Donna
Phil M, 6/4/2010, Wedding, Sharon, MA
Tom Bruhl was amazing. We loved his ability to play live instruments and sing to bring a unique touch to our reception. He is the best of both worlds, amazing musician and great DJ. He never once let the party die down. He keep everyone up and dancing all night. He was more than accommodating with our requests for specific artists and styles of music and was very easy to contact with questions and concerns. The live performances during the cocktail hour and dinner service were fantastic. Our guests were very impressed with his performance and were surprised that he was playing live. Tom helped make our wedding day PERFECT!!!
Donna L, 9/17/2011, Wedding Reception, Jaffrey, NH
He was so great to work with, so accommodating and professional. Everyone was dancing at the end of the party! My advice – just go with it and trust Tom to play what people want to hear. I think we ‘overthought’ what we would like and he just knows what works. Can’t recommend him highly enough. He knows what he’s doing.
Eric B, 9/4/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Newport, RI
Tom was fantastic!! We wanted to have the experience of a live performance without the added cost of a band while still being able to have a DJ for late night dancing. Tom was the perfect fit! He has a great voice and is talented on a number of different instruments. He had a huge catalog of songs he could perform and did them all so well. He was first to show up at our venue and was prepared for anything. Our wedding was outdoors and Tom and a great setup for both the ceremony and the dance floor. When the reception switched to party mode…Tom was ready to go with all the hits both classic and new. I would recommend him to everyone! Thanks, Tom!!!
Melissa L, 6/25/2011, Wedding Reception, Concord, MA
Tom is truly talented with what he does and he really is a one man band. Our dance floor was always full and all my guests kept coming up to us commenting on how amazing our DJ was the entire time. Tom even went around to mingle with the crowd while playing his saxophone. Our guests could not believe that he was serenading them, as they kept taking pictures. We thought he did a great job at following our playlist and reading the crowd on what to play. I would definitely recommend him to any bride out there as he will not let you down. The compliments keep coming and I am so happy that we got him to play at our wedding. I would give him a total score of 5++++++.
