Jerritt (DJ Jerry B) Brantley
Jerritt has been in the entertainment industry for almost 20 years. He started out entertaining with the Boy Scouts whre he worked as a camp counselor at a summer camp for 6 years before going "pro" as a DJ at Catherines in Va. Beach in 2000. Jerritt began his career with Astro Entertainment in 2007 and was awarded Astro's "Iron Man of the year in 2008." He then worked his way onto the Spirit of Norfolk where he won Spirit DJ of the Year in 2013. Jerritt says "I always like to make people laugh and have a great time. If I am having fun, the guest are having fun. I love to interact with my guests so I feel like I am a guest at their party too." Jerritt loves all kinds of music, from Pitbull, LMFAO, and Enrique Iglasias to adult contemporary artists such as Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and Ed Sheeran - and everything in between. "I feel like I can step into any event and have a great time!"
What are clients saying about Jerritt?
Astro Entertainment was great! I was concerned that my wedding would have a dj that wanted to talk to much or had that dj voice. Jerry, from Astro was excellent. He worked with us to determine what we wanted to play and what would get our crowd on the dance floor. He played special requests from the wedding party, as well as kept the night moving smoothly.
I hired Astro Entertainment once again for DJ, Casino, Lighting and Photobooth and 5 star all the way. Jerritt the DJ was amazing and the attendees loved the trivia games and scavenger hunt, and the music kept them dancing and entertained for 4 hours during their holiday party. They assisted me with the raffle prizes and calling out the winners.

Jerritt was our DJ and he was fabulous! My mother is a lady of few (positive) words, but she could not stop saying how great the DJ was! Highly recommend Astro & Jerritt!

I wanted to let you know what a delight it was to have Jerritt Brantley as my DJ at my "Sweet 60" party. First of all, he called me a few days prior to the party so we had time to talk. He brought “props,” including an inflatable guitar and sax. On songs that had riffs, like “Jump” or “Freeway of Love,” people would grab the instruments and play along. It was a lot of fun. He taught us dances. He encouraged us to form a conga line and rolled it right on into a Soul Train line. He was fun. I could tell he was into my party, even though I know he does this all the time. He didn’t treat me like I was just another gig. He laughed, he had commentary on the music and he kept the groove. He seemed to be enjoying himself as much as me and my friends, but doing his job at the same time. And finally, the most important thing he did was he managed to squeeze in nearly every song on my list – and I had 60 of them, to commemorate my 60 years on the planet. I really enjoyed Jerritt, and the party was absolutely terrific.
