Brennan Sullivan

Recognized as a versatile and dynamic entertainer, Brennan has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and The Knot, In addition to wedding receptions, he has performed at everything from small private parties to large corporate functions, and brings over 15 years experience to bear.

As an MC, he has a smooth and clear, radio- quality voice (but NOT cheesy!) In fact, he prefers to be more low-key and 'in the background' once the formalities are done, letting the music speak for itself. 

Brennan's ability to adapt to different settings - knowing when to get the crowd into it and when to dial it back and let the music take over - are all part of his dynamic approach to each event. In addition to adjusting his MC'ing level, he is meticulous in sending clients forms to help them plan out all the particulars of their event well in advance.
