Brenton Giannakis - St. Louis Wedding DJs
Brenton brings a youthful energy to your big event. His customers love his ability to keep people dancing and his friendly and approachable nature.
Brenton was very communicative and understanding with all the last minute changes we had to make. He ensured we were both aware of what he had planned next (cake cutting, first dance, wtc.) before it happened so we were prepared. Additionally what we felt was exception was a Brenton came around and asked the wedding party individually if we needed a drink or anything; ythat wasn't his responsibility but it was greatly appreciated. It was also nice that Jeremy came out to meet us, that made us feel valued as a client of Complete Wedding Events. Kat Abdelmalek
Brenton our Dj was amazing! He really wanted to get to know us and our families. Dancing with the kids and just really making sure everything went even better than we could have imagined. He was flexible when we changed our minds a few times. We had multiple guests comment about him and how great he was. Michael Yoder
How would you describe your “DJ Personality”?
I am very outgoing and energetic, I will find a way to connect with all generations. I dance, interact with the crowd and constantly check on you and your guests to ensure that everyone is enjoying a night they will never forget.
What is your favorite DJ memory?
During a show earlier this year there was a flower girl that was probably 3 or 4 years old who absolutely loved me. I played her favorite song, “Thinking Out Loud,” by Ed Sheeran, and asked her to dance with me, so I picked her up and danced with her. Afterwards the mother of the bride, the girl’s grandmother, came up to me and told me that the girl’s father wasn’t in the picture and I was the first person to ever slow danced with her and that melted my heart. I will never in my life forget that dance, girl or night.
What is your favorite thing about being a DJ?
I get to ensure that your night is the one that you have dreamed of your entire life. I get to meet amazing people and make a lasting impression on hundreds of people that will be in their minds forever.
What makes you unique / stand out as a DJ?
I naturally connect with all age groups. Kids are naturally drawn to me and the older guests always love talking to me because I can talk about things nobody has talked to them about in a long time. The young adults are my peers and I will always treat each of them like my best friend which makes them naturally comfortable.
What is your favorite part of the night?
Any DJ will tell you their favorite part of the night is the dance portion, which is definitely one of my favorite parts, but my absolute favorite part is meeting the bride and groom for the first time. You find the only two people in the room freaking out and you get to walk up to them and tell them you’re going to make everything okay, and then you see the relief wash over their faces.
What is your favorite party song?
I really enjoy playing “Teach Me How to Dougie,” by Cali Swag District at parties, because it has a good beat that kind of forces people into a dance-off. I have never failed with that song, it’s definitely a go-to with a packed dancefloor.
Why did you become a DJ?
I actually never dreamed of becoming a DJ. I’ve always loved music, but I was a very sports driven guy and was not very tech-savvy. Complete found me, during my freshman year of college, and it has became my greatest passion since then. I find myself constantly trying to learn more and finding ways to personalize each event, they say emceeing becomes a part of your blood and that’s exactly what happened to me, I’m infatuated.
List one fun fact about you most people do not know:
I am currently pursuing a law degree to become a family lawyer, that helps children in abuse and divorce cases; because, events in my past have shaped me to strive to make sure every child feels loved and appreciated.
