Brian has been obsessed with music since childhood. His main goal when DJ’ing is to compliment the event with music that fits a theme or the personality of the client. Brian’s favorite play lists include 1940’s Swing, Soul and Motown, 80’s Pop, and Reggae, yet he is always flexible and happy to accommodate any special requests. His extensive, ever-growing music library includes all styles and eras of music, so he is sure to have what you are looking for.
Brian also recognizes that he is not there to be the main attraction, or center of attention. So you will never find him talking over the music, playing games, wearing costumes, or teaching line dances, a DJ stereotype that Brian strives to avoid. He has always worked under the philosophy that if you play the right mix, the music will bring the guests to the dance floor.
We had Brian from Murray Hill Talent DJ our wedding. We actually saw/heard Brian DJ a friend's wedding in October, and right then and there we decided to see if we could book him for our wedding in March. We are so glad we did! Brian was very thorough and quick to respond, even though he had a lot on his plate at the time with his wife just having a baby! Brian talked with us on the phone, met us in person, and exchanged many emails with us throughout our wedding planning process. On the day of, he did a great job reading the crowd's reactions to music, and playing a great mix of requested and "do play" music. Also, he really listened to our needs about what songs we did not want to hear, which of course we appreciated! We definitely recommend Brian as a great Dj! .

We chose Murray Hill after pretty extensive searching. My husband was insistent on having a good, quality DJ. We had been to weddings recently with awful DJs who played cheesy music and tried to lead the guests in awful games. So embarrassing. We met with our DJ, Brian Deluc, before hiring Murray Hill and we had about fifty questions for him. He was awesome and we could tell he really understood what we wanted. We had a pretty long "do not play" list and Brian totally respected it. The music during our cocktail hour and reception was great. People commented on how great our playlist was. Some people have mentioned that Murray Hill is more expensive than other companies but I think that you get what you pay for. If you really care about the quality of your DJ and the music, you should go with Murray Hill.
Becky Champlin, 10/17/15 wedding Codman Estate, Lincoln, MA
We only have positive feedback for Brian. I appreciated his professionalism (particularly on the wedding day and throughout the reception) but also his attention to detail for what we requested. Brian fit into our vision effortlessly, and was a smooth operator on the day of the ceremony/reception. He was calm, collected, professional, and accommodated our minimalist style. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a superb DJ.
Meredith Shih, 9/12/15 wedding 9OFS, Boston, MA
Brian did a fantastic job and kept everyone dancing from start to finish. Great playlist, everything went very smoothly. Thanks again!
Matthew Epstein, 9/6/15 wedding at Fruitlands Museum, Harvard, MA
You did an awesome job at our son's wedding last weekend. Thank you so much - everyone raved about your selection of music, getting people up to dance and great personality! Thanks again!
Cate Conley, 9.27.14 wedding at a private residence in Cataumet, MA
Just wanted to follow up now that we've "recovered" from the wedding. Thank you so much for your expert DJ'ing. The music, announcements, pacing, and tone of the evening were exactly what we were looking for, and what we'd asked for, in no small part due to your planning efforts and careful attention to detail. The lighting also looked great. We felt totally confident leaving things in your hands! We would definitely recommend your services in the future.
Kathy & Brian Kelly, 10.26.13 wedding at the Taj Hotel, Boston, MA
Thank you so much for your hard work in helping us have the most perfect wedding day! Our guests had a lot of fun, and we definitely did too. We know it took a lot of care, and we appreciate it. Thank you for your professionalism; you were a pleasure to work with!
Tiffany & Mario Cardona, 8.18.12 wedding at the Boston Public Library, Boston, MA
We had a blast and heard only good things about your work! Let me know if you ever need a reference, particularly for a same-sex couple. It was not easy to find vendors who were up front about their experience with the LGBTQ community, so we'd like to be able to offer you (and Murray Hill, but particularly you) a gay-friendly star of approval! :)
Heather Johnson & Meghan Griffiths, 8.4.12 wedding at Five Bridge Inn, Rehoboth, MA
Brian was excellent! Numerous guests have commented positively about his song selections and seemless transitions between tracks. He kept people out on the dance floor all night. I also appreciate him going above and beyond in tracking down an alternate version of our dad/daughter dance song for my father!
Kelly & Jon Petitt, 6.16.12 wedding, Barn at Gibbet Hill, Groton, MA
Linda and I just wanted to thank you so much for coming down to Hartford and DJ'ing our wedding. You did a great job! All the music selections and the timings were perfect and we appreciated all your intros and announcements. We felt it really couldn't have gone any better. If you ever need a letter of recommendation or whatever just let me know.
Mitch & Linda Glass, 12.31.11 wedding, Pond House, Hartford, CT
Brian did a fantastic job. He was helpful during the planning process and amazing on our wedding day. He kept us informed on the big day, played great music (and ALL of our must haves) that kept the party rocking for all ages. I would be happy to recommend him to anyone!
Beth D& Brian Clymer, 10.22.11 wedding, Stamford Yacht Club, Stamford, CT
Awesome! Professional, fun, down-to-earth, overall great time!
Kerry & Steve Troup, 10.15.11 wedding, Ridge Country Club, Sandwich, MA
Brian was everything we could ask for and more in a wedding DJ! Very personable, attentive, and kept the party going from beginning to end. We trusted him with our music selections and he totally delivered. Always professional with announcements and perfect timing, Brian really impressed us and our guests with how well he read the crowd. Many thanks to Brian and Murray Hill for making our wedding such an unforgettable day!
Edgar & Sarah Pena, 9.24.11 wedding, Hyatt Harborside, Boston, MA
I just wanted to follow up and let you know that Brian did a fabulous job at our August 13th wedding. At least half a dozen guests complimented us on our choice of DJ. He really kept everyone dancing through the night, and was quick to adapt to the crowd and their tastes. We were really impressed by his professionalism and talent, and we would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.
Wileen Kao, 8.13.11 wedding, Elm Bank Horticultural Center, Wellesley, MA
I just wanted to thank you again for doing such a wonderful job of DJing at our wedding. Everyone was raving about the music and how the whole crowd was dancing all night long! That dancing all night clearly had to do with your skills and we truly appreciate it. We knew we had a dancing crowd that was ready to party and I'm so glad you were able to deliver. In the future, I will highly recommend you to any of my friends getting married. Thanks again for doing such a great job. You truly helped to make our wedding very special.
Aili Knight (Cervenka), 7.30.11 wedding, Oceanview Inn, Gloucester, MA
Clay and I wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you! You played such great music (with minimal direction for us...) and got everyone up and dancing for the night! You were so great at reading the room and seemed to play the right music at the right time. We've received a lot of compliments on the music & dancing. We'll definitely be passing your name to anyone we know who plans to get married in the Boston area!
Allie & Clay Cordova, 6.5.11 wedding, Willowdale Estate, Topsfield, MA
I wanted to make sure you knew how much we enjoyed having Brian as our DJ! He really kept the party going and even got my 92 year old grandmother out onto the dance floor! We couldn't have been happier!
Deb Korik, 10.16.10 wedding, Seaport Hotel-Boston, MA
Thank you so much for helping create the perfect wedding reception! The questionnaire that Murray Hill Talent sent out ahead of time was extremely helpful in pinpointing the style of music and overall vibe that we were hoping to create. You took this information and went above and beyond all expectations. The sound in the venue was perfect. Your set-up was comprehensive but not invasive in any way. Announcements were made in a professional but warm manner. Most of all, the transition from song to song was flawless! All of our guests were up on the dance floor immediately and remained there all night. Since our wedding, we have received compliments from guests, vendors and event staff regarding the music selection. Many have asked for a complete song list so that they can refer to it for future events! We absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for a fun, attentive, talented DJ who really gets the party going! Andrew & Kate Davis, 9.18.10 wedding, Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham, MA
Thanks so much for sending us Brian Delac on Saturday night- he was fantastic. He was a pleasure to work with and he really listened to the client and gave them exactly what they wanted. I will definitely be calling you first the next time I need a DJ!!!! Kate Nixon, The Catered Affair, 7/24/10 party in Chestnut Hill, MA
I just wanted to say our party was a huge success. I cannot believe it but Brian was able to get everyone on the dance floor. He was very professional and did a fantastic job. Thank you for all of your help in the preliminary stages and I will make sure that if anyone I know is looking for a DJ to give you a call Kristin Gilbert, 12.18.09.

Brian was easy to work with and upbeat. He kept the party going all night and really understood what we were looking for. We would hire him again in a heartbeat! Matt Woodward, 9.19.09 wedding, Hamilton Hall, Salem, MA
You were awesome - I heard a lot of compliments about how much fun everyone had at the reception and everyone thought you chose the songs perfectly, Virginia and I appreciate your work. If I get a chance to refer you I will. Justin & Virginia Goodwin. 8.1.09 Wellesley College Club, Wedding
Thank you sooo much for making my wedding such an amazing time. People were raving about you...honestly...at any given time there were only about five people sitting. I also wanted to apologize, I feel terrible,..you left and neither Matt nor I caught you to tip you. Can I please have your address so I can send it to you. Again, you were amazing.
