Brian McDonald began his DJ career out of necessity in 1997 while serving in the United States Marine Corps. He was part of an elite cadre that not only protected U.S. Embassies from attack; the detachment’s living quarters was also the entertainment and social site for many diplomats to relax after a hard days work. As the parties grew larger the need for a DJ increased. Brian took on this challenge with much success and continued to DJ at many foreign posts abroad.
Fast forward to 2002, and Brian was hired as the resident DJ at Images of Strongsville and McCarthy’s of Lakewood, where he stayed on for many years. Through references, he was asked to perform his first of many wedding receptions in 2003.
In 2005, Brian was asked to provide production services to world renowned DJ Aladdin, who specializes in Indian wedding receptions. A strong working relationship was formed and Brian continued to learn the many aspects of a successful Indian wedding. While providing production services for another large Indian wedding in 2007, Brian was asked at the last minute by the DJ to fill in as DJ. Brian, having been trained by the best, didn’t shy away and got the job done wonderfully.
Today, Brian travels all over the USA providing wedding services and holds a residency at Tradesman in Parma. Brian has been with Cleveland Music Group since 2009. His showmanship, production quality, and attention to detail will amaze all in attendance.
