TESTIMONIALS

"Great energy from start to finish. Bryan engages with the crowd and makes them want to stick around for to hear what he plays next"   - Jimmy Nigg - Owner - The Monkey Barrel - Denver, Colorado

"Bryan was a delightful performer to have at Trident. He was punctual and professional, making his sound set-up a breeze. His songs and music were fun to listen to and created a fun vibe on our back patio. We were glad to have him perform for the night!"  - Aleah - Trident Cafe - Boulder, Colorado

"Where do I start? What can I say about Bryan Bielanski? Certainly nothing negative! Bryan was an absolute peach!!! He was punctual and professional, as well as self-sufficient in his set up. He came prepared with his merch and stage set-up, and even had a laminated write up about himself and his music. He played a set of lovely originals and also sprinkled in a few well-chosen covers, which he was courteous enough to ask in advance about. He quickly won over the audiance with his warmth and enthusiasm. His smiley face logo was certainly appropriate, as our patrons couldn't help themselves from matching it! What a gem! " -alexía, bartender, Curia on the Drag, Gainesville, FL, USA

"Bryan Bielanski’s upbeat personality matches his Pop/Rockin’ songs and is sure to please. After listening to him you’ll understand why his albums are called “Bryan’s Super Happy Fun Time I and II!" - Marcia - Henry Turner Jr.'s Listening Room - Baton Rouge, Louisiana

“Bryan is consummate performer with a large repertoire of fan favorites sure to please any crowd.  Very professional and very easy to work with.  We look forward to working with him in the future.” - Ryan - Celtic Irish Pub - Pascagoula, Mississippi

"I have known Bryan Bielanski for 10 years and in that time I have seen him grow both musically and professionally. His use of social media is right on as well as his ability to please an audience with his unique performance style." - Jeff Cheen - Founder Charlotte Music Awards/Founding Board Member Hollywood Music Media Awards

"I heard about Bryan Bielanski’s Super Happy Fun Time Show by way of the Internet. Bryan’s a prolific promoter as well as a talented professional touring musician with original songs that connect to audiences and excite and entertain them. He is adaptable, easy-going, his set-up is a breeze and on-point because he knows what he’s doing (Gear, Monitors, Sound-Check, Merch Tables, etc.) Working with Bryan is an absolute pleasure; he’s friendly, fun, and works equally, if not harder, than his venues promoting and supporting his appearances both locally, and to his extended social media fan base. Bryan’s songs are well-crafted and have wide appeal. I run the longest continuous-running open mic show in America since 1984 here in Gainesville and I’ve seen a lot of acts in my time. It would be an honor and privilege having Bryan return as often as possible to our show any time during his ongoing ambitious touring schedule. Bryan Bielanski comes highly recommended." - Tom Miller - Host of the Tom Miller Show (a.k.a. The Reverend Angeldust’s Tabernacle of Hedonism) - Hardback Café, Undertown, Gainesville, Florida -

PRESS QUOTES

"Bryan's Super Happy Fun Time II, is a catchy, bouncy, musical journey for the senses." - Teresa Robinson (New Mexico Entertainment Magazine"

"College radio of the 1980s, which eventually evolved into the “indie” scene of the new millennium, was heavily influenced by the underground/college music coming out of the American South. Bands like R.E.M., the B-52s, Pylon, Green on Red, Love Tractor, Let’s Active and more took the punk and new wave of the day and put their “Southern” stamp on — and in the process changed the music as we knew it. One can certainly take an artist out of the area, but there is something inherently unique once music is infused with that Southern vibe. North Carolina native Bryan Bielanski, formerly of the punk band Angwish, now performing as a solo artist, continues in that tradition with his 12th release, “Bryan’s Super Happy Fun Time!”  - Johnny Vinyl (Go! Eastern Oregon)

"Road Warrior Bryan Bielanski takes happy songs, positive vibes from city to city" Kyle Peveto (Baton Rouge Advocate daily periodical)

“Bryan has so much passion in his music. The songs sound really great” Scott Litt – Producer (REM, Nirvana)

“Catchy... the vocal melodies and guitar solos are sweetly delivered with an honest sense of urgency.” Gordon Lamb (Flagpole Magazine, Athens, Georgia)

“...intelligent and musically coherent power pop with soul.” Woody Mitchell (Charlotte Observer daily periodical, Charlotte, North Carolina)

"East Coast singer-songwriter packs more hooks than a tackle box!" Erika Boling (Metrospirit Magazine, Augusta, Georgia)
