What We Do
Washington’s Entertainment Connection (WEC) is a full service music agency that manages and books bands and DJ’s that perform parties, weddings, socials or any other type of celebration where live music or DJ’s are involved nationwide.

- Management and support of specific party entertainment bands and live music bands.
- Representation and promotion of independent entertainment bands and party DJ’s performing in MD, DC and VA, signed by the agency
- Connecting clients with additional support services that have proven (to us) to be superior in the business, such as photography, videography and lighting
- Expanding our mission to find the greatest musicians possible to hire to perform for you; is WEC’s affiliation with “Gigs For You”. GFY is a non profit musician’s organization that helps professional live musicians and other entertainers network with one another and find work. (GFY was started by our founder, Brian Choper.) Through this affiliation, you can take advantage of these GFY resources. As WEC discovers new talent through GFY, that talent is brought into the A-List group of musicians hired by WEC to perform for you as you hire our bands.
WEC is a family of managers, musicians, sound engineers, photographers, videographers and DJ’s, all working together to create great bands, great music and great events. It is a family of artists in collaboration, providing you great bands and great musical options.
