Entertainment is Our Business

Bialek’s has been the life of the party for almost 40 years in the Baltimore-Washington, Metropolitan area. From bands to DJ’s to soloists to ensembles to specialty groups, we’ve got what it takes to make your event the talk of the town.

What’s more, it’s almost as much fun choosing your entertainment as it is booking it. Stop by our Rockville location and we’ll show you a wealth of talent not often found in one place. You can audition bands online, or we’ll arrange for a live presentation. If it’s a DJ you’re looking for, you can choose the one that you feel has the perfect personality for your reception. Just rest assured, whether it’s a wedding, a Bar Mitzvah, or your own private theme party, we’ll help you set just the right tone.

Strings, brass, rock, Bach, Mariachi, Motown, R&B or alternative, We’ve got it all! If you’re looking for another name or type of entertainment, just ask. We’ll get it. From Caricatures to clowns or even Jewish Folk, we are at your disposal.

All the Extras Without the Extra Charge

At Bialek’s, we’ll recommend your best entertainment option based on your budget. And that’s not even counting the benefits you’ll get free of charge.

Things like reassurance. Everything is planned in advance...What kind of music to play between sets...who will make the announcements. We’ll even come up with contests for the kids or a special tribute to Grandma

We’ll be there- right up to the moment your party begins. And whether you’re hosting a formal banquet or a casual get-together, there’s no question we can’t answer. Because at Bialek’s, we believe in service. And that’s no song and dance.

Fred and his group did a terrific job!! Several people always comment as to how good they are. Fred is great to work with also. He responds quickly and helps to make sure that I have everything I need. We will definitely have them back for our party next year. Thank you!

We used Bialek's music for a company event we hosted in January. The logistics were difficult since we had music needs at an art gallery and a venue on multiple days. We worked with Ray and he seamlessly executed our needs. The electric violinist, steel drum player and DJ were amazing and our guests were so happy. Thank you for making our event so special!!!

We worked with Bialek's Music for our corporate holiday party. Robin who works in the office was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions. After reading reviews, we requested DJ Dan Goldman. Robin connected us to Dan and from that point forward, we corresponded with him directly.

Dan was very responsive and put us at ease since he has DJ'd hundreds of corporate events and knew exactly what we were looking for. Dan showed up for the event early, setup quickly, and went with the flow as we asked him last minute to make announcements, etc. He played the right music for the event had our employees dancing all night long!

We would recommend Bialeks and DJ Dan to anyone looking for an amazing DJ for their corporate event!

We used Brent Petersen band for our corp. reception and they did a fantastic job! Both musicians were very professional, engaging with our guests and played a nice variety of music being mindful of the nature of the clientele attending. I would absolutely recommend them to others interested in a similar event experience. Thank you!!!
