Famos! DJ Entertainment is the best! They were at my son's bar mitzvah at the beginning of April. Brandon Brown was the entertainer at my older son's bar mitzvah a couple of years ago and we knew when planning my younger son's mitzvah we wanted Famos! to be there. With the pandemic we weren't sure what we would be able to do and Famos! was very understanding and helped us plan an event that would be safe and fun. Even in the rain and in our garage my son had the best time. Brandon is truly the best at getting everyone dancing and I couldn't have been happier with the entire Famos team.

We cannot thank you enough for the performance you put on at Dylan’s Bar Mitzvah.

It was truly a remarkable and magical night to remember.

You guys were all amazing and absolutely crushed it.

From the cocktail reception, to the kids session, to the party – it was perfect.

The energy in the room was nonstop and the music was insane.

I cannot tell you how many people have said it was the most fun they have EVER had at a Bar Mitzvah.

Thank you again so much for everything – you guys are the BEST.

Cannot wait to celebrate Tyler together in 3 years!

Hi Brandon, Zach, and Famos!


Well, what can I say, Brandon and the rest of the Famos! team were "two for two"! 

Jessica's Bat Mitzvah at the Metropolis in May of 2017 was awesome, in large part, because of Brandon/Famos! And as far as Evan's Bar Mitzvah goes, our guests can't stop talking about how much fun and energetic our MC, DJ, and dancers were! Thank you for making Evan's Bar Mitzvah so memorable - everything ran so smoothly - like clockwork - and the music got EVERYONE up on the dance floor! Brandon, thank you for giving everyone, especially Evan, such a fantastic evening, and Howard and I will continue to recommend you/Famos! to everyone out there!  


Best wishes for continued success -


Warm regards,


Tami, Evan, Howard, Lauren, and Jessica Hammersley

What can we say but you not only did it get better and better! This was the most amazing day! You made our family feel so special and Karsen literally had the time of her life!! The energy you bring to that room is something no one else can do. Everyone said how amazing you all are! We love you like family and appreciate everything you did to make this awesome day for us. As exhausted as we are, I joked that I wish we had one more kid to do it all again with you... but since that's not happening...we will just have to wait to see if I again at the next party! 

Please thank the dancers again for everything! You are the best team! 

See you soon!

All our love,

Hi Everyone-

On behalf of my entire family, I want to extend my deepest thanks for the awesome job you all did at Emily's Bat Mitzvah. Your entire team was a joy to work with from start to finish,

 Zach- thanks for coordinating all the major and minor details. Your accommodating and responsive approach to customer service was much appreciated. You also did a great job running the photo booth!


Famos- your energy and passion for what you do shines through in every conversation. You clearly take pride in your company and it shows!


Brandon and team- You sure know how to throw a party! Emily felt special from start to finish! You had the crowd engaged and having fun all night long. On a personal note, 12 hours after Emily was born, I suffered grave complications that led to 218 days in the hospital- most of that time was spent in the ICU. I had nine major surgeries, lost two major organs, and was temporarily paralyzed from the neck down. Many doctors told my family my chances for survival were slim, and I had little to no chance of ever walking again. You can only imagine what an utter joy it was for me and my family  to be dancing at Emi's Bat Mitzvah! You created an amazing atmosphere that was absolutely perfect for celebrating.The memories you helped create will last us a lifetime. 


Many thanks for your talent, attention to detail, dedication to your clients, and pure happiness you brought to our event.


With Sincere Appreciation,

The Helfand Family

Brandon Mitzvah Picture Famos.jpg

We had Ariel's mitzvah a month ago and had an incredible experience with you all. We wrote a testimonial when it was our son's mitzvah and would love to offer up another one.


There is so much that goes into making a mitzvah special but the DJ is at the center of it all. It is a huge job to get that party going and to keep up the energy in the room. Brandon does it like no other. We just had our daughter's mitzvah and he also was at our son's a few years back and there is no one else we would have used. Brandon is charismatic, engaging and makes you feel like he is truly there for you and your child. He conveys a feeling of warmth and love that just fills the room. He helped make a day that we will never forget.

We wanted to reach out to you to let you know how wonderful Brandon, Samantha, JP and all the rest of the Famos crew were at the party. The music, the timing, the involvement with all of our guests was impeccable. Everyone had the best time and you made Mandy and Sammie feel so special!  You are true professionals and we wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the night so special.

Brandon had so much energy and Trenton played all the right songs. I can not thank you enough! My son and his friends had such a great time, they will have memories for years to come.  In addition to all of that they were both so incredibly professional and attentive. We got so much more than we paid for and I have nothing but great things to say about you and your staff. I am sure that we will work with you and your company again in the future.

We used Famos for our wedding on 7/23/17 and this review is long overdue. Where are the words to explain how amazing Brandon is! Besides being the absolute best DJ around, Brandon is intuitive and has wonderful charisma. He absolutely made our wedding happen. He is professional, caring, thoughtful, flexible, compassionate, patient and he most definitely works well with others. He is incredibly comfortable on the microphone and dance floor alike. Our event ran an hour behind because we had so many speeches, and Brandon didn’t bat an eyelash. He rolled with the punches and made everything happen seamlessly! You will not regret hiring Brandon for any type of event. He is such a gem!

Okay, seriously…..there aren’t the right words to adequately capture how TRULY awesome your team was at our party….they were beyond phenomenal!!!!

JP is THEEEE MAN!  He was amazing!!!  And on top of it, the entire crew ROCKED!

We had the best time last night and I can’t begin to tell you how many people have reached out to us today to rave about what an incredible job your team did to make the night the best night EVER!

It was outstanding!!!  Beyond anything we could have imagined!  And JP really is OUTSTANDING!!!!  Truth be told, I’ve been trying to convince my family that for Zach’s Bar Mitzvah, in 2 yrs, that we should go to either Israel or Tuscany and do an amazing family trip.  But, because of how absolutely extraordinary your crew made the night, I’m not sure I’ll ever win this conversation.  I am not sure Zach would ever forgive me if we didn’t have JP and the Famos crew at his event. So thanks to you, I may be stuck doing this whole thing AGAIN ;).

Seriously though, you guys could not have made the night any better.  It was awesome!!!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brandon Brown and Famos! Entertainment are quite simply the best in the business. Not only is Brandon and his crew unbelievably talented at what they do, but they put us at ease through the whole wedding planning process. As it got to be within a month of our wedding, Brandon met with us to talk through logistics. To see everything come to life during our reception was one of the best moments of our entire life! We were worried about people getting up onto the dance floor, but Brandon is a virtuoso MC and had no problem getting literally EVERYBODY onto the dance floor. He is one of the most fun people you will ever meet, and he can really light up the room with his passion for what he does.


Thank you to Brandon and the rest of the Famos! crew for helping to make our special day unforgettable!! 


We are still getting comments from friends and family about how much fun they had at our wedding, and that our DJ was the best!!! Hire these guys for your next event!!!!

We had to write and tell you how ABSOLUTELY AMAZING Brandon and Todd were at Sammy's Bat Mitzvah Sunday night 5.27.18.


They gave 110% of their energy, and truly read the crowd - keeping the adult music going while the dance floor was packed. They truly  anticipated what the crowd wanted - from 8 year olds to 82 year olds. Brandon's energy was infectious, and truly made it the most FUN PARTY we could have imagined. Additionally he went above and beyond with both effects as well as really understanding Sammy's apprehension about being the center of attention and adjusting accordingly. They took our direction on how we wanted the hora to be organized, but made it their own. We seriously cannot say enough good things. Brandon and Todd were UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME.


Thanks for making our party amazing, and making us feel like we were the most important party you had going on.  You guys rock and we will tell all our friends!

Brandon was our DJ and ran the party like clockwork. I was very impressed with the dancers and the ability to get the kids to have fun and dance the whole night. I would always book him for all my parties in the future.  Famos Dj Entertainment was very professional company and helped with all my party planning for my son's Bar Mitzvah.  The website was super easy to use and all the adds on that were recommended were right in line with what I needed for the party.

Famos, the DJ and the dancers made our daughters night perfect. She said her Bat Mitzvah was the best night of her life. It was in large part because of Famos and the crew helping to make everyone have a great time. Everyone was dancing all night, the music and games were perfect and we all had a blast. I could not recommend them more! Even parents of kids that never dance said to us, I cant believe my kid was out on the dance floor all night.

A big thanks to Brandon-- the best in the business. Amidst the mayhem of a Bat Mitzvah, Brandon weaves in and out with great music keeping the entire party entertained. Rumors were floating around that we must of flown Brandon in from South Beach as the adults were floored by the energy and quality of music. The only disappointment we had was not having a dance floor big enough to hold all the people wanting to dance. Throw in the games, contests, etc. and you have the makings of a magical night!

Brandon Brown and Get Famos did it again! At the end of my older son's Mitzvah almost 3 years ago, my younger son looked at me and said "I want the same DJ for my Bar Mitzvah." Without hesitation, I booked Get Famos and Brandon again and here we are a few days post 2nd Mitzvah and I am back to let everyone know that it was another success. My younger son was very hesitant about being the center of attention and Brandon made him feel so at ease throughout the entire night. The kids hardly left the dance floor and adults were joining in on the fun as well. It was a great night from start to finish and I owe a lot of the credit to Brandon and the DJ and dancers who ran the party flawlessly. Such a pleasure to work with them and I knew I could trust them to make the party everything we wanted it to be and more. Thank you all so much for all you do - you guys are the best!

He has a unique ability to get not only the kids out on the dance floor but also the adults. Everyone had a blast and I received so many compliments on how outstanding and exceptional Brandon and crew were. The energy in the room was much to be remembered and his ability to coordinate with the venue on timing was impeccable. I was able to enjoy the party and not have to think about the schedule of events as I knew I was in excellent hands. To me, quality entertainment is paramount to a successful party and if I had to do it again, Brandon and FAMOS! would definitely be there! Could not have done it without you so THANK YOU!

The first thing we did when we got our son's bar mitzvah date was book Famos! He had an instant connection with our son - listening to him and making him feel special. Our party was a huge success thanks to Famos! Everyone said "Whatever you paid him, he was worth the money!" And we agree! He kept all the kids and adults engaged. He had every single guest on the dance floor - including the parents picking up their kids at the end of the night. It's clear that Famos! loves what he does - his enthusiasm is both authentic and infectious. We HIGHLY recommend Famos!!!

Entertainment listened to our vision of the ceremony and reception and went above and beyond to provide us exactly what we envisioned and then some. The professionalism in the planning, set up and delivery was what added the extra level of class to our wedding. The MC, Brandon was able to create a great vibe and brought everyone to the dance floor without hesitation. The night was phenomenal and wound't have been the same without Famos!

Amy and I wanted to let you know that we had the best time at Jordan’s Bat Mitzvah this past weekend. We were amazed at how great you guys were with the kids and the adults as well. You guys, your dancers, and technical crew looked like they were having such a great time which made it contagious for everyone to let loose and have a blast! It was nice to see such a fun energetic collection of people that work for you guys.

I have known Dara for a long time going back to our high school days and she highly recommended you guys back when we were deciding for our two oldest Mandy and Samantha who are having their Mitzvahs on November 17, 2018 also at Ravinia Green. We are extremely excited for their big day and that you guys will be a big part of it.

I just wanted you guys to know how much fun Saturday was as the music, the vibe, and the energy were perfect.

I don't even know where to begin. The whole evening and experience was surreal and beyond perfect. What you did in the room aesthetically with your state of the art technology and how you carried yourselves on the mic throughout the evening was beyond what we could have ever imagined. Jordan's Bat Mitzvah was one of the most memorable evenings for us and all of our guests. You kept the guests, young and not so young, out of their seats the entire evening. Even Jordan's 92 year old great-grandmother was tempted to leave her seat. Lots of sore feet the next day and so much fun.

It was more than entertainment though, it was a labor of love. You treat every client as if they are the most important. The recording studio experience Jordan had with Famos! was unique and so memorable for Jordan. We will forever have the magic you created, it was the perfect special touch for our music lover. You blew us away with your attention to detail, professionalism and knowledge of music and technology. DJ Todd played the perfect selection of music that kept our friends and family out of their seats the whole night. He also knew exactly where to play her Broadway show tunes, making her light up and bust into song every single time.

Brandon and Famos!, Everything you said and everything you did leading up to our event and all night long was perfect. From the moment Jordan met you both, she felt comfortable and confident that you'd be able to make her shine and ensure that every guest would have fun. There is something so special about the way you run a meeting and interact with children and adults that makes everyone feel like they are the most important person in the room. You listen to your clients and you take every request, concern and question to heart. You command an audience and sure know how to keep a party running, there was not a single break in the whole night. You are masters on the mic (and on the drums, Brandon) and you carried the party from start to finish.

Thank you for going above and beyond to make sure everything heard through those speakers and shown on the screens were nothing less than perfect!

We are forever grateful and will never forget what you did for Jordan and all of our guests!!!

Thank you!

Famos! entertained our 450+ crowd with style and energy. Overheard from kids who have been to many mitzvahs: This DJ was ENGAGED with the crowd, like no other! The kids also thought the music was "on trend" with good transitions between songs. And they really liked the friendly competitions. We had to shut down the party because the place was closing--the kids were still partying with the DJ!

Brandon and his crew made Carrie's Bat Mitzvah (also her birthday) party a high energy dance fest that kids and adults a like raved about! The weather was hot but that didn't stop the dancing! From our initial meeting all the way through to the event itself, working with Famos! was fun and easy. Thanks for once again delivering-big-for our daughter's special day.

We hired FAMOS based on a recommendation from Pinstripes for my son's bar mitzvah. Famos served as an advisor - providing advice on everything from timing, to give aways and activities. All his advice was spot on. Then - JP and his crew surpassed all expectations. EVERYONE young and old - was dancing, bowling, smiling and having a blast. I am beyond grateful to Famos, JP and the whole team. Thank you!

Brandon did an incredible job MC'ing our wedding in May. Leading up to the event, we met with Brandon a few times to go over the specifics. He was incredibly professional and we loved meeting with him. During the event, he helped get people out on the dance floor, which made for a lively wedding. In addition, the music during the dinner hour was kept to a comfortable level so that people could chat with each other. We recommend Famos! DJ Entertainment.

Famos! DJ Entertainment provided the music and entertainment for our school's end of the year picnic. We hired them last year as well and we were 100% satisfied with their services. They are professional, great to work with, and know how to engage the kids and families. The kids danced all night!! We highly recommend anyone who needs a DJ for their event to call Famos!

Another amazing Daddy Daughter Dance at Saint Joan of Arc in Evanston. Huge thanks to Famos for another amazing year. I continue to book him every year for the last 6 years. The girls have so much fun and a big reason why is because of Famos.

We will be booking him again next year.

Wow wow wow!!!! Brandon and his crew from Famos DJ Entertainment did it again!!! If you have a school function you MUST use them!!! The kids were dancing the entire time!!! Brandon and crew kept them engaged and having a blast! The only school functions I've been to where the kids were actually dancing was when Famos Entertainment was performing! Famos and Carolina were so easy to work with, emailing and calling me immediately with any questions I had. Personally, I have used them for my own son's Bar Mitzvah, and have used them for school functions, and if I have any say, I will only use them!!! They are the BEST!!!! I just adore them!!!!!

Thank you, thank you!!!

Brandon, the DJ, and the dancers all worked so hard, had so much energy, and were so successful in engaging both the kids and adults at Jessica's Bat Mitzvah this past Saturday night! Brandon and his team were fun, dynamic, and interactive with Jessica and our guests, yet respectful, courteous, and not "in your face" as we've found other DJs to be!

Thank you so much for such an amazing, joyful, and lively party - one that Jessica and the rest of our family will never forget!

I think it is impossible to find a DJ like you. Not only are you and your crew crazy talented, but to bring that to a school dance just because you can....I'm certain you are 1 of a kind.There are just not enough djs like you with your level of energy and dancers too. Thanks again for the help!

The FAMOS! team did an incredible job at our event. We had an adult party for our members. They were timely, professional, energetic, and capable. They had the right music for our group and even got everyone dancing! Thanks very much for a great party!

Our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party was one of the happiest nights of our lives! Brandon did a fantastic job running the entire evening. The flow of events was perfect, and our guests had a wonderful time. Famos was flexible about responding to some of our unique requests, such as including our daughter's birth mother in our festivities, and we really appreciated the professional, dynamic staff. We were nervous about having a DJ party, because some of our guests had special needs, but Brandon managed to get all the kids up and dancing. For many of our guests, it was their first time at a Bat Mitzvah, and they were so excited about it. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job! We really appreciated your great work!

My best party decision was to use Famos! DJ Entertainment for my event. Thank you so much for helping to make my party a success! The DJ was great and clearly keyed into my party itinerary, playing all the music I had hoped for. My guests and I danced all night and in fact, the bartender told me that he had never worked a party at our event space, where the dance floor was so full. We had a blast, my feet hurt for days from all the dancing, and it was just as I had wished...a memorable night. Thank you!

Famos and his DJ came to our high school WinterFest this year. They did an absolutely amazing job of bringing great backdrops and making the high school gym look nice, dancing WITH the students, and making sure everyone was happy and having a good time. Communication is key to me as a high school advisor, and Famos' whole crew did an awesome job communicating to me in a timely manner to make this a great event. We advisors spent a lot of time in the gym, and WE adults had a blast! We look forward to having Famos Entertainment at future high school dances.
