Wayne was a perfect fit for our wedding, and was so great to work with. He met with us twice before the wedding to get a feel for our musical preferences and get to know each other. He helped us organize the night in terms of the timeline and how the flow would work. His music... Read More was perfect, not too many slow dances and so many fun dances!

We hired Wayne to be our DJ for our wedding on 9/16/17 and he did not disappoint! From the beginning, he was kind and prompt with his communication. We met prior to hire and discussed our vision for our wedding day. The week prior to the wedding, we reviewed the timeline... Read More together. We did use our own MC (a family friend) and Wayne was totally cool with it all! We also needed to play some traditional Greek music from a home Apple laptop, and this was not an issue at all! I provided a list of "to play" songs, and heard many of them played throughout the night and my "do not play" list was honored. Above all, the dance floor was PACKED from the moment the first dance started - it was amazing and exactly what we wanted for our wedding - people dancing all night long!!! It was wonderful, and over exceeded my expectations. Wayne was able to read the crowd and keep the dance floor moving - 110% recommend! Plus, he referred us to our photobooth (Memory Box), who was able to give us some extra discounts because of the referral. Additionally, Wayne set up the sound system for our outdoor ceremony last minute, with no additional charge - very sweet and much appreciated. Thank you so much Wayne!!!

Wayne was the absolute best wedding DJ! He not only was incredibly responsive to all steps of my planning process, including making a special trip out to my venue (my parent's country farm) to make sure every detail was planned in advance. On the day of the wedding Wayne was... Read More timely, professional, and so kind in helping get things set up for our homegrown wedding. Once the event started he was a blast and did a great job reading the crowd to keep the party going. He was so charming and fun to be with. He was even a great help to our photographer by adding extra lights on the dance floor to help her pictures turn out better. My photographer even mentioned to me that he was especially kind, he rescued her suitcase of equipment by pulling it inside the tent when it began to sprinkle. Wayne really made my special day that much more special! I cannot recommend him and Rockout enough!

We found Wayne from a recommendation from my wedding planner, Ana at TwoFoot Creative. We had a little bit of a non-traditional wedding—I’m Polish and my husband is Peruvian and Japanese, so the music was something we really wanted to reflect our blended family and friends.... Read More Wayne nailed it. We envisioned a music full of latino music and culture, but with pops of traditional fun dance songs for my family. We provided him with a list of our favorite songs beforehand in case he didn’t have the type of music we wanted. Surprisingly, he already had a lot of the songs and created the exact atmosphere we hoped for, and maybe even better! Our friends and family made a number of requests, including a polka and a lot of latin party music, and he (after checking with us) played everything requested. Our goal was for people to want to get up and dance, and the dance floor was full for the entire evening. He wasn’t one of the annoying DJs that is always on the microphone, and we are still getting compliments from guests about how great he was.

Wayne and his team were unbelievable! He was so flexible and comforting in the planning period up to the day and on the day he took the feel we wanted to achieve and ran with it! The dance floor was packed every second of the night. All of our guests kept telling us how great... Read More the music was and how awesome the DJ team was. If my husband or I went up to make a suggestion it was the next song that was played. He was laughing and smiling the whole time, which may not seem like a big deal but I found that since he's front and center people really fed off their energetic vibes. To top if all off my Mom wanted to plan a surprise sing along for my husband and I before dinner. I wasn't a part of the planning but the fact that Wayne kept it a secret and pulled it off seamlessly was pretty amazing! I can't say enough good things about his team. If you have a chance to book him - take it, he will make your day amazing.

We were so happy that we booked Rock Out for our wedding! Wayne, the owner, was our main contact for most of the planning. He was quick to respond, easy to work with, and even made suggestions for other vendors that would fit our needs. We didn't really want to have to dictate... Read More what music was played at our wedding, so we really put our trust in the DJ. We filled out a request form and went over it with our DJ (DJ Matt), and then after that we left it all in his hands. I'll admit, we were pretty vague - we basically told him no explicit lyrics, and please make sure everyone has fun. Matt did such an amazing job!! The music matched the mood of each event through the reception perfectly (cocktail hour, dinner, cake cutting, etc). And Matt knew how to get people out on the dance floor and pumped up!! Our dance floor was full the entire night and everyone had a blast! DJ Matt even passed out these crazy light-up glow sticks that everyone went crazy over - it was so much fun! If you're looking for an awesome DJ who really knows how to keep the party going, definitely talk to these guys!

Never a dull moment!

Wayne brought the house down the night of the wedding! Not only did he keep the entire dance floor packed all night, he was so great with keeping events of the evening rolling. When it was time for the bridal party entrance, he came out and made sure everyone knew what their... Read More cues were and gave an entire run-down of what to expect as we walked in. Our families were all over the place during the time for the bridal party dance and instead of having my husband and I off to search for everyone, he gathered everyone together. When time for the bouquet toss, he grabbed the flowers for me. Wayne kept the dance floor alive and is able to connect with the crowd, feeding and seeing what is keeping them on the dance floor. He is great with interacting with the crowd and getting everyone involved - he even went out and did The Wobble with everyone on the dance floor to familiarize it with how it's done. My husband and I were not off the dance floor all night and cannot thank Wayne enough for the incredible job he did on our special day!
