We just got married last night and were so happy with DJ Byrne Rock that we just had to write this review today! Byrne kept the music flowing all night and there was never a moment where the dance floor was empty. He totally felt out the mood of the crowd and catered to it - and it paid off because we got a ton of compliments on the music and the DJ! Booking: We met with Byrne nearly a year ago to discuss hiring him. We got coffee at Austin Java and had a laid back conversation where we got a feel for his methods. We liked that his style was to pay attention to what the attendees were liking and to make music selections organically. We also liked that he was super affordable! Song selection: Byrne sent us an extensive list of songs broken down by genre, including a "most frequently requested" and "most frequently requested do not play list." We picked some songs we wanted played and some we really didn't want. We also gave him our favorite genres. The wedding: Byrne followed our lists and played every song we requested. He also filled in with a bunch of songs that fell within the genres we liked. When I asked him to play "Return of the Mack" he told me he planned to play it a bit later when the crowd was ready for it - and he was totally right. He picked the perfect time. When my friend requested a song, he actually played it - which I have found rarely happens at weddings. Everybody had an awesome time dancing! Other stuff: We had some friends and family perform music and speak during the ceremony. Byrne provided the extra mics and speakers necessary for a reasonable rate and made sure it was all set up ahead of time We can't say enough good things about DJ Byrne Rock and highly recommend him!
I worked with Fernando Carlos and he went above and beyond to make our reception truly memorable. I sent him a list of songs that span a lot of genres and he read the crowd perfectly that night. The dance floor stayed packed. He was very nice a personable when i talked with him and he was great with the crowd. I worked with Byrne on the contract and pricing and it was easy and simple. When you are in the middle of planning a wedding you REALLY appreciate easy and simple. I've never had to hire a DJ before so I didn't know what to expect but the service I got was amazing ! I highly recommend Byrne Rock and Fernando Carlos!
Our daughter and Son-In-Law,, were married at Barton Creek Resort and Spa this July. Their wedding was a destination wedding and we had no contacts or knew what vendors to use for photographery, DJ, etc... We saw a good review on The Knot.Com about Bryne Rock DJ. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Eddie our DJ. He went above and beyond meeting with us and then again testing out the sound equipment at the rehearsal the Friday night before the wedding, a true spirit of excellence and professionalism. Being that we were out of town it made us feel very confident and worry free! Thank you Eddie for helping us achieve the feel we wanted for the wedding and getting everyone on the dance floor and celebrating Gracie & Bryce!
Byrne was so incredibly easy to work with! He gave us a guideline to go by for any help that we may have needed and stayed in contact with us checking in to see if we needed help or anything at all from him. He was so understanding of my "I really want these songs played but really don't want any of these" and was more than happy to help with all of that. He did our ceremony music too and just made it all so easy for us! He was awesome to work with!
Byrne did a great job during our November wedding. We had him DJ our reception. He was very personable and responsive, provided a great list to get us started with our song list, was flexible when we were deciding on a mic for the ceremony and the guests loved him. I would definitely recommend working with him.
Byrne was referred to my now-husband and I through my wedding planner, Callie and we couldn't have been happier with our choice in hiring him as our DJ. He was communicative and easy-going throughout the process and made it clear that we had full reign to make the music what we wanted. And in the event that you're not picky, he can come up with his own mixture of tunes. He also provides couples with lists of "Most Requested", "Least Requested" and various chart toppers for inspiration. Byrne kept us dancing and at one point we even spotted our catering team busting out some moves, but then again Selena was playing and who can't resists Selenas? Perhaps my favorite thing about Rock is that he wasn't cheesy. We've all experienced those weddings where the DJ is just a little bit extra, either because they're dripping in corny jokes or wearing costumes...or both. Byrne is professional and personable and he makes sure to keep the party moving. Some other tidbits: I don't know the term for these, but he provided "dance lights" for the party as well as mics for the ceremony and speeches. I also found his service to be incredibly affordable - though I know that can be a relative term when planning a wedding. Many of the DJ places we looked at were around $1200 for the same package of services and we paid Rock less than $1000.
Byrne did such a great job at our wedding! We told him what kind of music we liked and a few songs that we wanted to hear, and he did the rest! We had so many compliments from family and friends on our music selection and it was all thanks to Byrne. He was great to work with beforehand; he was timely and made sure to understand our vision for the reception; and was overall a great MC and DJ.
The biggest fear I had going into my wedding was that no one would get up to dance. Fortunately with Byrne's help, my friends and family were on the dance floor the entire night. He did a great job and was so easy to work with. Book him!
Perfect dj! Great to work with and just the right amount of personality. Did a wonderful job.
Byrne was incredible to work with. From our first call with him, we knew we were dealing with a genuinely caring person who wanted to make our wedding day a memorable occasion. Beside the obvious things you need from a DJ (punctual, attentive, functioning equipment, etc.) he was easy to work with and flexible in regards to customizing our playlists, etc. We would recommend him to anyone in Austin looking for a great wedding and event DJ.
Byrne is an amazing DJ! He had our December wedding at Hummingbird House dancing all night! Byrne is very easy to work with and definitely knows how to keep the wedding guests happy! Our wedding timeline was way ahead of schedule, but he and the day of coordinator kept everything flowing flawlessly! I would recommend Byrne Rock to anyone looking to get married in the Austin or surrounding area!
Byrne Rock was really amazing to work with. We decided late in the game that we needed a DJ (you know how it is, you start out thinking that you'll have a small wedding and then things sort of blow up). Bryne himself wasn't available, but he immediately offered to see if Michael (DJ In The Mood), another DJ he works with was and got us in contact. Michael was the best, he kept the party on track, adjusted to changes as needed and played music we and our guests really loved. The billing process was so simple and they provided great tools for getting a framework of music in place. I am absolutely a fan!
5 STARS! We had a great experience with Byrne, he was referred to us by someone and we are glad we went with him. His prices were reasonable especially with how great his reputation is. We didn't have a lot of time to get a song list together because we were so busy with other wedding things but luckily he was able to read the crowd as well as pick songs that fit our personalities and personal style. He made it a stress free experience for us and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Byrne!
DJ Byrne is a fantastic DJ and I highly recommend him. We had been working with a different DJ who completely ghosted us 3 weeks before the wedding. In a panic we found Byrne on the knot who was luckily still available. He was very professional and had a contract drawn up within a day or two, giving us peace of mind. From there on he was great to work with. He had no qualms about doing our entire wedding (ceremony, dinner, and reception) which were in 3 different buildings, and pulled it off invisibly to us. Further, he had a great list of songs commonly requested that we went through so he could get the feel of what we were expecting. Finally, the night of he did a great job reading the crowd and really made the evening by getting lots of people out on the dance floor. All in all I would highly recommend DJ Byrne for your wedding.
From the moment my wife and I met DJ ED, from Byrne Rock, I knew he was the guy. He was incredibly professional, and helped us with everything from coordinating events during the reception, to recommending killer songs for the big day. His music selection and timing was awesome, and he knows how to read a crowd! There is no one else I'd rather have had rockin' the mic on my wedding day. Five stars and two thumbs up!
We got married on 8/12/17 and Byrne was our DJ at the Horshoe Bay Resort Yacht Club. Byrne is so easy to get along with and so much fun to work with! He made us a customized first dance song that was a mashup of different songs and it came out PERFECTLY. He is seriously so talented and I have had MULTIPLE friends say to me that it was the best wedding playlist they'd ever heard, not even exaggerating. He is very talented at reading the crowd and seeing what would go great next in the moment for all ages. Everything ran so smoothly and it was perfect. I requested several things that weren't on his sample list and he was able to play anything we wanted. We asked for contemporary Christian music at dinner, and he connected to a Spotify playlist I had and played that which was perfect. My husband's family is from Portugal and he played several Portuguese songs for us that were a hit for all the guests! If I could give Byrne 1000 stars I seriously would. He ROCKS! pun intended :)
We HIGHLY recommend Byrne. He intuitively discerned our musical preferences based on initial conversations and communicated well to collaborate throughout the wedding planning process. He even spent close to an hour on the phone with me the week of the wedding to finalize our timeline and musical selection for the reception. We provided him with a short list of artists and specific songs on a do/do not play list, and he curated an amazing set that aligned with our tastes (while never once veering into the “do not playlist” territory). Furthermore, he read the crowd beautifully during the reception, used seamless transitions, and attracted almost all of our guests (including my teen cousin and grandmother) to the dance floor for the entire evening! As bride and groom, our foremost desire was to honor the friends and family who support us and to create an experience where all guests felt welcome. Byrne was integral in realizing this vision for the reception. Personally and professionally, Byrne is responsible, organized, kind, and easy going. We have the sweetest memories of dancing to our favorite songs with our favorite people on our wedding night. We only wish we could offer Byrne a residency at our house for a weekly block party!
DJ Byrne Rock is the way to go for your Big Day! We had an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception, all at the same venue. This didn't seem to be a challenge at all for Byrne Rock. He did an amazing job with our ceremony music, looping it as needed and fading it in and out for a nice effect. He also kept everyone having fun on the dance floor at the reception. We scheduled a call with him the week before the wedding and ran through our tentative schedule of events and our ideas about the music for our wedding (I can't emphasize enough how important and helpful this is!). When the Big Day came, he showed up early to make sure he was all set up at both the ceremony site and in the reception hall. Then he helped to coordinate everyone else so things stayed on schedule and ran smoothly. I guess you could say that aside from music, Byrne really doubled as our wedding coordinator! My husband and I loved what a nice, chill vibe Byrne Rock brought to our wedding too. As beautiful and fun and wonderful as a wedding is, it is an overwhelming experience with a lot of moving pieces. Byrne Rock did a great job keeping all the pieces moving in the right direction while exuding a calm, peaceful vibe. We were so grateful to him for that! 100% recommend him for your special day.
Byrne was recommended to us by our wedding planner, and what a great recommendation it was! Byrne was super! A pleasure to work with, he was helpful and discreet - he set the tone for the reception exactly as we hoped with great background music that fit the bride and groom's musical tastes, and the volume was perfect. The dance music was spot on as well. He had good suggestions and really listened to and respected their likes and dislikes. He provided the sound equipment for the wedding ceremony, too, and it was just perfect. If we ever have the need for a DJ for another event, we will seek Byrne Rock. Highly recommend his service!
Byrne did an excellent job DJing our wedding! We are Jews and had some wedding traditions, such as the Horah, that he easily rallied everyone for. I have been to some weddings with a cheesy or awkward DJs, Byrne is none of that! He played music from 2pm to 10pm for us and kept people on the dance floor the entire night. Seriously, he had to tell our crowd 'this is the last song and then the wedding ends' before people left the dance floor. I created a playlist for him but I recommend letting him decide what to play when and even encouraging him to go off the playlist when needed. He had a mic for the Rabbi and wireless mics for the toasts. I could not more highly recommend this DJ!
DJ Byrne was amazing! We talked on the phone when I first started looking into DJs and he was willing to answer any questions I had and talked me through his experience. He was very easy to work with and was a breeze to communicate with throughout our planning process. The night of the wedding, he emcee'd well and played all the different types of songs we had asked for. He worked very well with our wedding coordinator and everything worked out perfectly. At the end of the night, we decided to have him stay another hour, very short notice, and he did so very willingly and the crowd was very pleased! Would definitely recommend DJ Byrne for anyone looking for an Austin DJ.
We booked Byrne Rock after a short telephone conversation because he seemed so down to earth and understanding of what it takes to make a fun wedding reception, and I am so happy we did!! He has an extensive list of songs for you to look over, and allows you to customize it to your liking. He also knows how to create the most epic dance party ever! I did NOT want my reception to end. We continued to dance and have a good time song after song. He really knew how to read the crowd and keep everyone engaged. It was definitely the best dance party I have ever been a part of. You will not regret booking Byne Rock!
My friend a former DJ guided me on my search and with his guidance I was able to find Byrne and it was it was a wonderful experience. Not going to lie, but picking a DJ for our wedding was the most difficult decision I had to make. And I am glad Byrne was there to help us celebrate the night away! Byrne was very professional and the party/ dancing did not stop all night long. We initially met with Byrne and a few others and my wife had a good feeling and she was right! Byrne was great and touched base with us every step of the way. The prep was on point, the sound was great, the transitions were great, and the music and dancing was fabulous. Just as requested we had music for many of our guests from 20-80+. Many of our guests told us thanks for the fun as they have not danced that much in 20+ years. I highly recommend Byrne for any event. Thank you Byrne! Charles & Kristine Ago Wedding JW Marriott San Antonio May 20, 2017
We decided to go with Byrne after a couple of interviews with other DJs. After talking to Jesse Jones, this decision was a no-brainer. Jesse was focused on what my wife and I wanted, and nothing else. He flawlessly executed everything during the ceremony, along with the first dance and parent dances, even with very short notice. I had multiple friends and family members comment on how great Jesse was throughout the day. On top of that, the price was very fair. I would hire Jesse again in a heartbeat for any future events.
DJ Ed was fantastic! He made Sarah and Drew's wedding!
