Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service was fantastic. Byrne Rock was very communicative and our DJ Shaun was fantastic. He called us several times before the date to verify songs in our song list and to go over how the ceremony/reception would work. He did an excellent job keeping the dance floor going and picking music that was in the genres that we wanted. I would highly recommend both Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service and our specific DJ Shaun!

Byrne Rock was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He is a great communicator, super easy to work with, and really good at what he does! We shared a couple different Spotify playlists with songs that we wanted played during the different parts of the wedding (cocktail hour, ceremony, dinner, dancing) and he arranged them in the perfect way. Our main hope for our wedding was to have a fun dance party, and I really think Byrne made this happen for us. He started with the anniversary dance, which got tons of couples out on the floor and then shifted to our favorite songs, in the perfect order that we had at least 90 minutes of great energy on the dance floor. I cannot speak more highly about Byrne and would totally recommend him to any friends or family in the Austin area. Thanks Byrne for making our wedding so wonderful! More...

Eddie was the absolute best! He was so professional, and patient after we had to push our schedule back a little bit. We loved his go-with-the-flow attitude, it honestly put our minds at ease that he was flexible. The whole process was incredibly well done. It was such a nice surprise that Eddie went to visit the venue days before our wedding to prepare for Plan A and Plan B when the weather was being a bit chaotic. Brandon and I both expressed how he was our favorite vendor! We hope to book Eddie for all future events :) Thank you both for an incredible experience. More...

I got to work with Al Davila at my wedding and he was absolutely amazing! He was very attentive to the crowd and kept people on the dance floor. He was also very accommodating for any song requests we had and super nice whenever we talked to him. I highly recommend Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service and Al Davila for your wedding! More...

Byrne was SUCH A GREAT DJ!! I left picking the DJ to my fiance, and when he came back with such a great price, and picked one so quickly, I won't lie, I was a little worried!! However, alllll of my fears were squashed as soon as I started communicating with Byrne. He was super thorough in his song list, and was extremely detailed in his planning. I had a venue coordinator that he worked with closely to make sure the wedding transitioned seamlessly from ceremony to reception etc. I've never seen SO MANY PEOPLE on the dance floor at any wedding I've attended. There were no less than 50 people on the dance floor at all times. We recommend Byrne to anyone looking. He will get the party started, and keep the party going all through the night. THANK YOU BYRNE!!! More...

We went to Byrne based on the recommendation of our coordinator. We got a chance to meet him in person and were impressed by how much he listened to us to get a feel for what we wanted out of the DJ for our wedding.

He was already booked but recommended that we partner with DJ Michael Lentz. Like Byrne, Michael was great to talk to and really understood what we wanted out of the music throughout the evening.

We were able to put together a comprehensive list on the Byrne Rock website of songs/styles of music we wanted at various parts of the evening. On the day of the ceremony, from the pre-ceremony through the reception, the music was absolutely outstanding!!

Michael's equipment and lighting were great. He also did such a great job making sure the ceremony was all about us. It was such a fun party- which is exactly what we were going for!

If you're looking for a DJ, look no further. They will absolutely deliver for your special day!

Byrne was great throughout the process. He was professional and organized in helping us make selections for things we wanted to play/avoid for our reception. We were able to communicate everything we needed, and he helped us think through things we would need to think about, and we felt like he was flexible enough to allow us to add details as we made decisions throughout the process. He was able and willing to help mic musicians for the ceremony. We were able to feel confident going into the weekend that he knew what we were looking for, and we were more than pleased with how it turned out.

He was setup and ready to go without us having to be involved day of, and the actual music selections were great. During dinner, he kept it to a perfect volume to be a nice background but never inhibiting conversations. And I got a real chuckle of satisfaction when one of my very-into-jazz and musically picky cousins came up to me during dinner in disbelief that it was our DJ who had made such great selections for the dinner music. We had a relatively long reception, and he did an excellent job of tweaking the music to keep the dancing alive and energetic as the evening went on and the crowd changed, gradually thinning as some people got tired. But especially toward the end, he really kept it all going with a great stream of “oh, and I absolutely have to be on the floor for this one” selections. It was a great evening, and many thanks to Byrne for his part in helping it go as wonderfully as it did.

Byrne was so wonderful to work with! He made communicating about our day seamless and rolled with any changes we threw his way! He showed up on time and got to work without needing anything from me! We just got to enjoy our day! Thank you, Byrne! I would highly recommend him! More...

Eddie Garcia is the best! A calming presence, which is key at weddings and during the planning phase. He was responsive, friendly, and even gave us tips on things to expect during the wedding that we hadn't thought of (neither of us have done this before, you know? It's funny how many wedding vendors forget that this is your first and hopefully last rodeo). He listened to our requests and did great with admittedly very little instruction from us - we sort of blindly trusted him, and we have no regrets about that. When the pre-ceremony day started out a "shit show" (per several people's description), Eddie brought calm and experience that made all the difference. His go-with-the-flow attitude and calm demeanor was a massive help. He even texted us sweet photos he took after! I really can't express how wonderful it was to have him on our team. He made a really stressful time much better. More...

We booked Byrne Rock at the last minute due to an issue with our other DJ. Byrne was very responsive, asked great questions and got us booked with DJ Jesse immediately. Jesse was fantastic! Really great energy, kept us dancing, rolled with changes and excellent playlist. I would 100% recommend and book Bryne Rock again. Thank you Bryne and Jesse! More...

We had looked and looked for a dj for our wedding and either they were booked or didn’t reply back, this was not the case with Byrne. Byrne and Eddie were very professional and asked all the questions we hadn’t thought about. During our wedding Eddie had it all under control and made our night extra special. Great job Byrne Rock and thank you for making our night everything we could’ve asked for. More...

Byrne is amazing! We had songs to him last minute that he was able to incorporate in our dancing playlist. He reviewed the pronunciation of the bridal party names with us before introducing everyone. Professional and a joy! The dance floor was full from start to finish of our wedding night. You will love having Byrne as your DJ for your special night. More...

Byrne Rock did an AMAZING job at my wedding. Our DJ Michael was able to take our playlists and then add on top of them, making everything sound just like our style. Received numerous compliments on how spot on the music was, even from vendors who go to weddings all the time. We had an indoor/outdoor venue with multiple speakers yet everyone could hear the music throughout the venue. Byrne did such a good job and was very reasonably priced. Highly recommend!!! More...

I am writing this review for Byrne Rock to say that he absolutely blew away my expectations and did one hell of a job!!! As a life long music aficionado, I can be quite picky about how my music is served to me and will definitely not shy away from taking control of runaway playlists. After being hesitant about finding the perfect DJ, I asked my wedding officiant about DJ recommendations. She implored me to contact Byrne Rock and just chat with about playing our wedding. After a lengthy phone call about music, I was extremely excited about throwing some playlist towards him so that he could better understand what kind of music we wanted but more importantly when we wanted it to be played.

I ended up building 3 playlists on his website which I found to be well laid out and designed.
The first playlist was composed of the ceremony and processional songs, which gives you a form to fill out for your wedding. I ended up choosing 3 songs but had no way of saying how I wanted them to be mixed into one another. Being extremely nervous about how they would start, stop and lead into one another I had to end up leaving it up to him. Let me emphasize, I was not disappointed when I walked down the aisle. He had picked out the parts of each song I wanted and seamlessly stitched them together for the ceremony. This allowed me to get into the flow of getting married and enjoy every second of the experience.

The other two playlists consisted of funk jams that I would have played at any party I was hosting and my wife's preference of drunk jams that consisted of ’90s and modern hip hop. We gave him both playlists and asked for them to be mixed together when he deemed appropriate. Once again he exceeded our exceptions and played the perfect balance of each playlist and got EVERYONE to dance. We had a few families from Columbia, Venezuela and Brazil put in some requests and he was still able to weave them into the party and made it sound perfect.

At the end of the night, I was sweaty, ecstatic, and married and not to mention extremely glad I choose Byrne Rock to bring the funk to give me and our family a night to remember. If you have any hesitations about Byrne Dj-ing your wedding diminish them now. If I could have a DJ for the rest of the events in my Life, I would choose Byrne Rock.

You know how most wedding DJ's are awkward and trying to pump up the crowd with the same 5 songs from 2001 no one really liked? I can GLADLY say that this is NOT that DJ. Byrne was absolutely incredible and had our whole group dancing all night. He was fun and so willing to work with our music taste and make sure that everyone was having a blast. More...

So easy to work with, and very helpful in providing suggestions when we needed them for certain parts of the wedding. He was an amazing MC and I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with him.

A few weeks before I got engaged I coordinated a wedding where Alfonso Davila was the DJ. The music felt as if it was one constant song and the dance floor stayed full. I told him that night I was interested in hiring him for my wedding! I’m so happy I did! Byrne coordinated everything, and Al did the DJ-ing! He was so easy to work with, and we all had a great time on the dance floor. Thanks Al! More...

When working through wedding plans with a DJ, you hope that DJ understands time is subject to change, that the ultimate goal for everyone is to celebrate this occasion, and that there may be some random things thrown their way. To say Byrne is great at what he does is an understatement. On a rainy wedding day, when our ceremony took place where the reception was setup, he handled all changes to our plan effortlessly. We got to work together to listen to our client and deliver an event they would remember forever. That’s kind of what it’s all about. It was an honor being on the vendor team with you. Cheers to so many more successful weddings! More...

We worked with Byrne Rock and one of his DJs Jesse Jones for two separate wedding events. 

Even when dealing with a cultural wedding, Jesse was very responsive and flexible! On the fly, Jesse worked with the officiant to make sure the music for every part of the event was perfect. Both Byrne and Jesse were very responsive, emailing us back promptly and scheduled several meetings to talk to us about the music for the wedding.

For our wedding reception, Byrne Rock was the one of the best choices we made. Byrne was incredibly flexible — we had a small weather issue that pushed back the schedule for the wedding and Byrne just rolled with it. Unlike some of the other weddings I’ve gone to, the sound quality of his music was top notch. His music selection, cross-fading was on point. We actually had a DJ that was a guest in attendance and specifically complimented how great his music was!

Byrne worked with us to make sure our first dance was great, suggesting a natural stopping point and other ideas to encourage the guests on the floor. We loved having both Byrne and Jesse work with us! They really made the music for the wedding special and memorable!

We hired Jesse through Byrne Rock for our wedding and LOVED him! He was so professional (arrived early and prepared, was flexible to last minute changes) but best of all he had us dancing all night long! After visiting with him he took our ideas and made them even better. Our favorite part of the whole reception was Jesse and I think our guests would agree!! More...

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!

Byrne's business partner Fernando, AKA DJ Nando, DJed our wedding and reception, and what an amazing job he did! We were very tough customers for a DJ--we don't like Top 40 Pop, our families and us like VERY different musical genres, and we were very picky about ceremony music. Fernando went above and beyond to make our ceremony and reception wonderful. He custom-edited some instrumental covers of our favorite songs to make them perfect for the ceremony. His timing and management of volume levels during the ceremony made things truly perfect. For the reception, we requested that Fernando find the right mix of classic country, reggaeton, hip hop, and classic soul music / oldies and pay close attention to the crowd to keep everyone happy and dancing. If you think that sounds like a tough challenge, you're right, but Fernando made EVERYONE happy and we had a ton of fun. Fernando was also great on the mic--I was so happy to have him announcing the first dances, the anniversary dance, and keeping things fun and light once we got further into the dance party section of the night. In case you're not already convinced, here are some unique reasons to choose Fernando: Better equipment and backups than other DJs in the price range, better custom playlist and making changes on the fly to fit your guests' unique tastes especially if you like country or Spanish language music, and keeping the volume loud enough to be fun but not so loud as to blow everyone's eardrums out. Fernando is fun and a consummate professional, but most importantly having him there felt like having a family friend in attendance, not a cheesy club DJ. Byrne was great to work with too--he helped us set everything up on the business side of things. We can't recommend Fernando and Byrne Rock Mobile DJ strongly enough--choose them for your wedding!

To specify, we wouldn't recommend him to our worst enemies because they'd have too much of a good time with him DJ'ing their event.

My husband and I took a very DIY approach to our December, 2017, wedding in Bee Cave, TX. However, having attended many weddings in the past, we knew the entertainment importance and wedding day stress relief of hiring a DJ service. Because we were DIY, we also hoped for a DJ who could work with a relaxed wedding environment, and who would also fit into an affordable budget. After extensive research, and a few disappointing interviews, we discovered Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service. Byrne was incredibly accommodating and considerate throughout our interactions, he worked to keep ceremony and reception services in budget, and he made sure to keep in touch and informed of all our wedding day needs. He also put us in touch with DJ Jesse Jones, who we could not recommend more! Jesse was absolutely amazing! He took considerable time out of his day to meet with us and discuss our music tastes and wedding tone, and didn't bat an eye when we requested old school country, oldies, jazz, and Motown, with a few new hits thrown in. Jesse is so incredibly prepared, but is also amazing at just rolling with it. Our family and friends had an amazing time, and we received so many compliments. We never once felt pressured or frantic about music or audio needs because we knew Jesse had it covered. Jesse is an all around great guy, and an exceptional DJ! We would absolutely recommend Jesse Jones and Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Services for any event! More...

Byrne was great to work with from the start. Once we met him in person, we knew he would be a great DJ for us. We enjoy everything from 80s music to modern indie dance (LCD Soundsystem, The XX, etc), so our musical tastes are pretty eclectic. Byrne mixed the music we like with the songs he knew would get everyone out on the dance floor. That's not to say he played cheesy wedding songs and top 40. He had a 'no play' list and he honored our request to not play any of the songs on that list.

The music he played kept us and our friends on the dance floor but also reached out our parents' generation to make sure they didn't feel left out.

Byrne's also great as an emcee. He was careful to ensure he pronounced everyone's names correctly and has the perfect energy. He's not over-the-top or cheesy - he's just what we wanted.

He's also a great value. I'd highly recommend Byrne for any friend's wedding.

He got right in there without hesitation and played everything we ask, and didn’t play the things we asked that he not. We are grateful for his knowledge and people skills and his talent!

Shaun was the DJ for our event. While he displayed a good light show, had very smooth transitions, and queued some of the most fitting songs for our 80s night out he did play some music with foul language after we had asked him to keep explicit songs or inappropriate references out. With a fair price and a great set up we are safe to say his work was amazing despite the one mistake on our part from lack of communication. More...

Shaun always defaults to the clean versions... so sorry an unedited one slipped in by mistake!

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 DJ'd our wedding last month and did a fabulous job! With our wedding being on a Sunday afternoon I wasn't sure if people would be doing a lot of dancing, but Byrne did an amazing job keeping folks on the dance floor and everyone had a great time. From our first meeting with him (via skype), Byrne was incredibly professional, friendly and confident. And after talking with a few other DJ's, we knew his price was a steal. We're thankful for having run across him (here on Wedding Wire) and trusting the great reviews we read. Thanks, Byrne! More...

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! More...

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! More...

Our wedding was 9/30/2017 at Palazzo Lavaca and we hire DJ Byrne Rock mobile to DJ.  Dj Eddie was our Dj for our special day.I'm very happy with the music selection since we had many different generations at our wedding.Everyone complimented on the variety of music played from 6pm to 12am.DJ Eddie did a great job announcing the wedding party, our first wedding dance and directed everyone to cake cutting pictures to sparkler pictures while the catering company sliced cake.So glad we went with a DJ instead of live music since our venue was intimate.  Most of all very grateful to find quality, professional, and very fair pricing (not highway robbery like other dj companies quote, $3k to $5k!!! Ridiculous, price of live band) from Byrne's Rock DJ mobile.We had a few miscommunication that was worked out without any hard feelings or awkwardness.  They are gentlemen and understanding of the stress of planning a wedding (being pulled in every directions).

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! More...

My new husband and I just had our wedding this past weekend and DJ Ed was AMAZING. From our first consultation up until the day of the wedding, he was incredibly professional and easy to work with. He also really knew how to read what the crowd was feeling. We got compliments from other guests all night long about how much they loved our DJ. He even sent us a few pictures and videos at the end of the night that he’d been able to take of our big day. We would highly recommend him to anyone. One of the best parts of our wedding! More...

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 Rock is the BEST! He really listens to what you want, and implements your vision flawlessly. He provided sound equipment for our daughter's wedding ceremony, which was wonderful, then he DJ'd the reception. The music was great, the volume perfect first for dinner, then for dancing, and his "master of ceremony-ing" was perfect -- he made it all about the bride and groom, not about drawing attention to himself. He's a class act. Highly recommend! More...

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! More...

DJ Byrne was amazing! We hired him for our wedding a couple of weeks ago. He was easy to communicate with from the beginning and throughout the wedding planning process. I made a few last minute changes on him during the week of the wedding and he was very flexible and happy to oblige. The night of the wedding, we decided to keep him an extra hour and he agreed without hesitation. We would highly recommend him! Amazing! More...

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.

Out of all the vendors we had to hire for our wedding, we found hiring a DJ to be the most perplexing. It is hard to see samples of their work unless you have already attended one of their events. You basically have to rely on the recommendations of strangers on the internet. Well internet, let me be that stranger to highly recommend Byrne Rock!

Byrne killed the music for our entire wedding from pre-ceremony to cocktail hour to a non-stop dance party at the reception. He was able to weave in our different tastes/song preferences/requests throughout the night while also balancing the feel of the crowd. One of the most common questions we got from our guests was, "Where did you get this playlist?" Answer: Byrne Rock.

As a professional, Byrne is extremely kind, responsive, and well-priced. Byrne has a sincere passion for music that was evident just from our first meeting with him and was really understanding and responsive to our vision for how music would play into our wedding. I cannot recommend him highly enough and secretly hope all of my friends book him for their weddings so we can enjoy his masterful work again!

Byrne was the DJ for my wedding and he did a fabulous job.

He answered all emails in a timely manner and was great to work with!!! More...

Byrne was an amazing Dj for our wedding! He came highly recommended by our wedding planner, and I know why. He worked so well with us and was so flexible throughout the planning process, always quick to answer any of my questions. Half way through wedding planning, we had to move to Minnesota, so I was very nervous not getting to meet any of my vendors in person until the day of my wedding. Byrne was SO helpful, had a wonderful song list already composed which helped me narrow down our choices so much quicker. To top it off, my husband and I could not agree on a song for our first dance, and Byrne worked to combine the two songs we wanted into one custom song. It turned out perfect, and now we can say that our first dance was unique to us, which makes it even more special. I had COUNTLESS compliments on the music and how fun the reception was. I even had another friend of my who is getting married in December ask for the playlist. Byrne did an amazing job MCing the night. He was noticeable without being the center of attention. He kept all of the attention on us and the events taking place throughout the reception, and kept the evening flowing perfectly. Thank you so much Byrne for making our reception so much fun and a night to remember! More...

My husband and I hired Byrne to DJ our wedding in March. We decided to hire him because he was very knowledgeable about dj-ing weddings in Austin and music in general. He is great at communication and will get back to you quickly if you e-mail him with questions or concerns, which is definitely something you want when planning a big event. And the best part is that he is super chill and keeps the party going without being over the top. Actually, the best part is that he is all of those things while being reasonably priced!
We are huge music lovers/snobs and the music at our reception was really important to us. During our initial meeting, we mentioned a specific song that we loved. We didn't bring it up again or make any special note about it on the list of songs we sent in, but Byrne remembered and played it for us as we were leaving the reception. We also sent Byrne a list of songs that would fill 6 hours, even though the reception only lasted 3 1/2, but he knew exactly what songs to play to put people in the right mood and keep everything upbeat. We had multiple guests mention that the DJ was killing it and that the music was giving them life! We were really happy with our choice to hire Byrne and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again!

Byrne was GREAT! We interviewed a significant number of DJs prior to selecting him and I think going with Byrne as our DJ was one of the best vendor decisions we made. We did not have a day of coordinator (totally possibly prior to what others say!) and Byrne did a great job MCing and keeping us on track throughout the night and helping us keep to our schedule. On top of that, we had so much dancing and the flow of the music was perfect. We got complements from so many guests on the music and the amount of dancing, it made it such a fun event for everyone! Additionally, he was super easy to work with and helpful as we were walking through our music preferences with him while providing great tips on building out our timeline. We have many other friends planning their weddings and have been asked numerous times for his info. Would definitely recommend! More...

Byrne not only has the best name ever, but he is an amazing DJ! From day one of meeting him, he was very polite, humble, and a great listener. He was great about listening to our VERY different taste in music and, with a few examples of songs and artists that we like, was able to come up with a dynamic and lively playlist. Byrne was great at communicating, and we always felt like a priority to him. During the wedding and reception, he ran everything smoothly, and we never had to worry about what songs were being played, songs starting on time, or how loud the music was, everything was perfect. Choosing Byrne as our wedding DJ proved to be one of the best decisions we made, and we couldn’t have been happier. More...

We used Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service for our wedding in October. Byrne was able to put us in touch with a DJ that was a great fit for our event. Our DJ, Chris Cortinas was great to work with. He was personable and accommodating. The playlist he curated for our event was a perfect fit for our personality. After one meeting with him, he was able to get a feel for the type of music we wanted at our reception (and more importantly, the music we didn't want). In a day full of chaos, it was helpful to not need to give the music a second thought. Chris was there when we needed him and kept the party moving all night. Everything we asked for was right on queue. I would recommend using Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service and Chris Cortinas for any event. More...

I would definitely recommend Byrne for any event and especially a wedding. More...

A coordinator at the Hummingbird House recommended Byrne to our friend/wedding planner, and he knocked it out of the park. We interviewed a few DJs, and Byrne had that great balance of professionalism and know-how. As a musician himself, he understood what we'd need for my husband's brothers to play our first dance song and also knew how to make his system sound awesome in our space.

All of his communication leading up to our big day was responsive and detailed. On the day of our wedding, he totally nailed our song selections, hitting all of our cocktail hour/dinner must-plays and ramping things up perfectly when it came time to dance. Byrne played all of the songs that were super important to us and added a mix that blended wonderfully with our must-plays. The dance floor was packed the entire night, from line dances to George Strait to a few cumbias. Thanks again, Byrne!

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!

Byrne DJ'ed for our wedding this past weekend (Sunday October 9th), and he was amazing!! He was very easy to communicate with while preparing. I gave him a pretty expansive song list and a specific set of announcements because we wanted to do a variety of special dances (including the Aggie War Hymn, a Pacific Island Mwaie, and the Horrah) and he executed them flawlessly. Also, our dance party was amazing! Byrne brought and set up extra lighting and it was great! I would definitely recommend him as a DJ for any type of event! More...

Hiring DJ Byrne Rock for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire planning process. I consider myself somewhat of a dunce when it comes to music, but Byrne was so easy to work with that it didn't seem to matter! His communication leading up to the big day was always prompt, gracious, and informative. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and helped me figure out some of the timeline logistics when other vendors seemed unwilling to give me guidance.

Byrne was able to put together all of the different moods of the evening perfectly, from ceremony to cocktail hour to dancing. He played every song that we had specifically asked for (and somehow played them at times when we were able to get out and dance) and he mixed together the desperate genres we requested perfectly. There were always people on the dance floor and I really can't imagine the music being any better. Plus, Byrne's announcements were always informative, jovial, and BRIEF! In my opinion, that is exactly what one wants out of a wedding DJ!

The best thing that Byrne did for our wedding (and me!), came about half-way through the night. We were running WAY behind our timeline for the evening (totally our own fault) and I was starting to freak out a bit. Byrne caught my eye and came over to chat. I started to apologize, ready to spin out with anxiety, but he answered me with the most gentle, calming voice and immediately put me at ease. He gave me two options for how we could structure the rest of the night and then gave me his opinion of which he thought would be better. I went with his preferred plan (which worked out perfectly - always take Byrne's opinion!) and I never felt that he was in any way anxious or annoyed. He calmed me down so much that I was able to move on to the next part of the night without any more anxiety at all. If I ever need a DJ again, I won't even consider anyone else!

We wanted great music with out the cheesy DJ announcements, when I said this to my wedding planner she immediate said Byrne Rock is your guy! He provided music for our outdoor ceremony/drink and dinner reception and indoor dancing. Byrne was wonderful, extremely professional and provided a great soundtrack to our wedding day!

We had DJ Jesse for our outdoor wedding last weekend and Laguna Gloria and he was fabulous! He was so friendly and fun and played exactly what we were looking for! We gave him a few ideas and he ran with them. We even told him to switch it up to heavier dance music at the reception from the wedding classics and he did so right away and kept the dance floor packed! we got compliments on the music! There was one moment that didn't go so well for me (the bride) when he played Chariots of Fire as our introduction song, which I hate, and thought it was terribly cheesy and panicked a bit before going out- but turns out my husband had wrote it down as one of his favorite songs ... so he was just doing what we said we wanted! He was only on the mic when absolutely necessary, and he even humored us and played Scottish country dance songs he found for us on iTunes for the last 40 minutes of the reception. Byrne Rock was by FAR the best value we could find for the money in the Austin area, we HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding! More...

His initial list of songs is really helpful for thinking about the themes and music we wanted played at different times.

He only got on the mic as needed or requested and was great at reading the crowd and keeping them going :)

We booked him because we heard he'd be amazing and he definitely delivered!

All I can say is that Byrne is literally the best choice for wedding DJs. Not only is he honest, quick at responding, and looking out for us instead of his own company and profit, he is really good at what he does! My wife and I never actually met him in person as we were from Houston but getting married in Austin. So all of our communication was via email or phone call and Byrne made every effort to ensure he understood what we wanted.

During the day of the wedding he was on time, got everything setup and working without any problem at all. There were no issues with audio at all and it all went flawlessly. He had the timing down perfect for the ceremony and was on top of everything. The reception was perfect too and he was the perfect choice to MC our day!

There are a bunch of good DJs in Austin but you'd be missing out if you chose not to use Byrne!

DJ Byrne was awesome as our Wedding DJ! He was very easy to work with, and did a great job with music from the cocktail hour through the end of the night. All we had to do is give him an idea of what we wanted, pick a few songs, and give him our Do-not-play list - and he took care of the rest.

My wife and I love a wide range of music, and he was able to incorporate it all to bring about the feel that we told him we wanted - relaxed and classy for the cocktail hour and dinner, then a dance party for the rest of the night! He even found some OPM (original Pilipino Music) for my Filipina wife (and her family).

Thanks, Byrne!

From a business perspective, he was really nice, easy and flexible (considering we had a last minute venue change!) to work with. I would highly recommend Byrne Rock DJ!

He already knew my venue location, professional, responsive, and exactly what I needed for my wedding. I only had a few songs that I wanted for my wedding and I let him chose the other songs.

He arrived right on time and was setting up before I even had a chance to say hello. He went out of his way to help my ceremony musician and officiant get their sound systems set up. Byrne played songs directly from the song list we worked on together and threw in other songs as the crowed was feeling them. He listened to my numerous requests and played them instantly (for example my sorority sisters wanted to hear some Britney..and he played her the very next song.) Highly recommend contacting Byrne for your big day! He will make the party happen! More...

Byrne was great! We liked him the moment we meet when interviewing vendors. He was easy going and really wanted to get to know us as a couple to understand what we were looking for in a DJ. He was responsive the week before the wedding and accommodated all the things we asked for. Played just the right music to keep the dance floor going until the night was over. Definitely recommend him! More...

Byrne was a dream. Sweet. Hard working. Knows his music. He read the crowd wonderfully. He is such a gem I wish I could get married every day and hire him! Annnnnnd...he isn't as expensive as the other DJs out there. Win/win/win. More...

Leading up to our wedding, I kept telling my fiance, "All I want is a giant dance party with all of our family and friends out on the dance floor."

Thanks to Jesse and Byrne, my dreams came true! Jesse found a way to play the perfect mix of music that would get everyone from our 2-year-old niece to our 90-year-old granny out on the dance floor. I mean, really, once the dancing started it DID NOT STOP. His ability to "read the crowd" and manage the flow of the evening was astounding!

We booked him for both the ceremony and the reception. During the ceremony, we had not accounted for how long it would take the wedding party to walk down the aisle. Luckily we had Jesse there to loop the song seamlessly so nobody picked up on that little hiccup.

Leading up to the event Byrne was very responsive, professional, and organized. We knew we were in good hands. Prior to the wedding I sent them a list of songs that we love so they could get an idea of the "vibe" we were going for. Jesse picked up our taste in music and ran with it. Not for a second did we have to worry about the quality of the music coming out of those speakers!

I cannot recommend these dudes more highly.

Jesse (from Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service) DJ'ed our wedding back in April, and man...what a great time. He helped out with our ceremony music and hooked up the mics for our wedding party toasts, and everything was amazingly smooth from start to finish.

As far as specifics, we provided a loose playlist of stuff we liked, but Jesse was great at reading the crowd and made sure we had a great dance party (which was all we'd hoped for.) He intuitively knew when to speed things up and slow things down, and I had so many people come up to me the day after and ask who was doing our music the night before.

He's a really laid back guy but don't let that fool you - he's a consummate professional and *very* good at what he does. I would hire him again in a second, and absolutely recommend him (and Byrne Rock Mobile DJ Service) for any event that involves having a great time and dancing until you're sore. 5 stars, I would give more if I could.

DJ Byrne Rock was a pleasure to work with during the whole process! He was always quick to respond to any questions, flexible with requests (providing a backing track to our first dance song while one of the groomsmen sang), and very easy to work with! His pricing is very clear up front (and very reasonable!) so you don't have to waste any time guessing about budgets.

I had DJ Byrne do my ceremony music, MC for announcements, provide lapel mics for the ceremony and toasts, play music to welcome the wedding parties, play a custom backing track to accompany the groomsman singing our first dance song, and play fun dance music during the reception. He was just a perfect DJ/MC because everything was timed well, and my MOH commented that "I don't think I've heard your DJ talk over the mic other than announcements" which is just perfect because DJ Byrne understands that you don't want a DJ who doesn't know when to stop talking at your wedding :)

Anyhow, DJ Byrne Rock was super easy to work with the whole way and I'd recommend considering him to be your DJ as well!

I would give him 17 stars (my favorite number) for each category if I could! Byrne got the party started and then some!


From the moment Ellen Westcott (of Westcott Weddings) recommended him, I heard great things. My husband and I spoke with him via Skype and he was amazing and was a great listener. So kind. So responsive. So patient. AND he has killer music taste!

There wasn't one person who wasn't on the dance floor! We love to dance and laugh and have a really dope time and Byrne made sure we did!

Things I loved about him::

He wasn't on the mic a ton. We preferred it that way but he was appropriately directly our guests as times it was needed.
He read the crowd and knew what to play next.
He was so freaking kind!

I would hire him every Saturday to just play if I could. ;-)

We used Byrne for our wedding in February and he couldn't have been better! He really worked with us to understand our musical likes and dislikes which made the day of super special. He took all of the heavy lifting off our plate as well and planned out the whole music schedule which freed up our time to focus on other things.

His list of commonly played songs really helped us narrow down our list. I would definitely recommend Byrne to anyone out there looking for a solid DJ that has a great attitude and will make your day super special.

Byrne was great at our wedding! Very professional, helpful during the process picking music (he has lists he can send you) and read the crowd well. Make sure to be specific about what you don't want played though, we didn't bother figuring out what songs we hated most and a hated song got played that we had forgotten about (and glad to forget) but that was our fault for not saying so. Our guests didn't seem to mind it though. He did play a ton of songs we had forgotten we like and that was really fun for everyone. Even the kids and grandparents were dancing. I only wish that the "must play/dance to" list was played during the dancing time instead of cocktail hour since we missed some of our favorite picks because we were taking pictures. Over all we would just do a little more on our part because for him not knowing us hardly at all he did very well! Plus hes not a microphone hog with cheesiness spilling over his DJ table, which is very appreciated. :] More...

Byrne was so great to work with for our wedding. I feel like Byrne could do any type of wedding perfectly! Byrne is very flexible and easy to talk to. He is also the most reasonably priced DJ we found that was so experienced and also had everything we wanted. My groom's little sisters wanted to play the piano and sing as I walked down the aisle and Byrne helped them get all set up and it was so adorable! I am really happy we found Byrne on the internet, we got so lucky! More...

So I found Byrne here on the knot and since I happen to live so far away from my wedding venue I couldn't meet him right away. He was super nice and communicative and after we talked on the phone I felt great about my decision to have him at the wedding even though we never met till only a month before the wedding. He was organized, understood our music choices, got our sense of humor and helped us problem solve along the way. At the wedding Byrne was on time and ready to go, he kept the party dancing all night and helped our guests plan a few surprises for the groom and me too. Like I said, he is basically the coolest and if your looking for a wonderful DJ and person in general- Byrne is your guy :) More...

We just had Jesse from Byrne Rock DJ at our wedding, and he was fabulous! Our guests had a great time and loved the music selections! Jesse was so personable and easy to work with. We added a few songs of our personal choice, but then just let him manage the rest and it turned out perfectly!

Also a plus is that Byrne Rock DJ is VERY responsive to email communication, which was better than some of the other DJs I was looking into before we booked.

I'd hire Jesse/Byrne Rock again in a heartbeat! My only regret is that our reception didn't last longer for more fun!

I don't know what word to use to describe Byrne and his services besides "awesome". 5 stars across the board for sure. From our first meeting, all the way to the end of our wedding, he was incredible. Having never scheduled a large event or hired a DJ before, I didn't quite know what to do. His professionalism and responsiveness made the entire process a breeze. He took every bit of stress out of the ordeal for my wife and I, and asked us to do only two things:
1) Put together a list of songs that we would like to hear
2) Create a timeline for the course of the evening
I followed those two simple instructions, and largely thanks to Byrne, everybody at our wedding had a blast. I will always keep Byrne's contact information, and I will definitely use him for my next event.

Thanks again Byrne!

We looked at several DJ's in the Austin area, and Byrne really impressed us from the beginning. He was prompt in his correspondence, which was very helpful since we were planning a destination wedding and had to rely on e-mail a lot. He provided services for both our outdoor ceremony and indoor reception and was simply amazing. Byrne is very easy going, really read the crowd well, and played all of genres of music that we wanted and stayed away from music that we didn't like. Can't recommend him highly enough! More...

He really knows his music, how to read a crowd, & kept our party going all night. I did not stop dancing once! He also really took his notes well and played the songs we requested at the exact moment we wanted to hear them. I was a very happy bride. Hire Byrne! More...

Byrne Rock did an AMAZING job DJing our wedding in February. The dance floor was never empty and people had a blast. He did a great job reading the crowd and even stayed in touch with what was happening during the toasts - my dad mentioned a Robert Earl Keen song, which Byrne later played, and when one of my bridesmaids quoted Rick Astley lyrics (well played Jenni), Byrne managed to quickly find and play a few bars of the song. From our first meeting, he was very professional and easy to work with. About a month before the wedding, he gave us a long list of possible songs broken down by genre, which made it easy to build do-play and do-not-play lists. He was also happy to get and play music that wasn't on his original lists. Several guests made a point to come up to us and say that this was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding! Thank you Byrne! More...

Byrne did an amazing job at our wedding! He provided the music for our ceremony and our reception and did such a great job. We provided some music that we wanted to be played, but really let him do a lot of the planning and choosing and we were not disappointed!

We highly recommend using Byrne if you are in need of a DJ for any type of event. He was very professional and helpful, through the planning and our wedding. He helped where we asked him to but also wasn't the typical cheesy kind of wedding DJ, which we really loved and was definitely more our style. He got all of our guests up dancing and we got a lot of complements on the music and how much fun everyone had.

Would definitely use him again for any future event!

You guys are awesome! I was provided a very handy list of songs categorized by genres, asked what to include, reminded to write down what NOT to include. The doc also guided me through a typical wedding reception, which was very helpful because I wasn't too familiar with all the songs that are typically played (reminded me to note father/daughter dance, first dance, mother/son dance, entrance song, etc). Jesse DJ'd my event, and he did a marvelous job. I felt bad because I forgot to remind my coordinator that we took out the mother/son dance (as this was noted on Jesse's list), so he and my coordinator probably had to work that out [inconveniently so] last minute. My friends liked seeing him jammin' up on stage, and he refused song requests (as I had asked him to). Thank you! And thanks for being the awesomest non-cheesy DJ too :)

This company was highly responsive to my emails, and I felt like I didn't have to remind them about the dates, song lists, etc. Thank you for being so professional, and affordable! Would highly recommend this DJ to anyone else.

Awesome!!! Price was reasonable and service was outstanding. My husband is Filipino from California and I'm Puerto Rican. Most of our guests were from out of the state. I was worried about finding a DJ in Austin that would understand our music preferences. Byrne did not make assumptions about our music preferences, but listened to us. He used our music preferences to build a great mix that keep the dancing floor full the whole time. Everyone had so much fun. We had a blast. Thank you Bryne!! More...

Byrne DJed our wedding last December and was freakin' great! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ.

Had my wedding on November 3, 2013 at the Hummingbird House. Considering that we are from Houston and Byrne was in Austin, I was a bit worried about communicating with Byrne & also I am not a big fan on waiting for responses. I didn't have to worry about that at all with Byrne. My husband and I had other vendors to choose from but we liked Byrne best simply because he is very laid-back yet professional. also, unlike the other vendors i spoke to, he wasn't trying to push all the extras on us like some desperate salesman (extra mic, extra speakers, etc)...i hate that kind of approach! Weddings are stressful enough & Byrne was super easy to work with. He came to our wedding dressed neatly, prepared, and he had our guests both young and old dancing. I recommend DJ Byrne!!! More...

Jesse, a DJ with Byrne Rock, recently killed it at our wedding. He was laid-back, professional, and intuitively knew how to work the crowd. Both Jesse and Byrne were incredibly accommodating, fun, and friendly during the entire pre-wedding/planning process. We knew immediately upon meeting with them that Jesse was the perfect fit for our day.

For those that are concerned about expenses (we were!), stop searching right now - these guys are it! Byrne is affordable and reliable and includes items in his overall fee that would be charged separately elsewhere. The cost was not the most important factor to us, but to find an incredible DJ for a reasonable price was oh so sweet.

About a month before the wedding, Byrne contacted us to ask about music choices for the ceremony, reception, etc. I wanted to surprise my husband with an obscure song and Byrne assured me that they would find a way to play it, even though I didn't even request it until a week or so before our wedding day. I couldn't have asked for a more supportive/communicative DJ.

During the reception, Jesse had EVERYONE out on the dance floor (even my husband's 85 year old grandfather!). He knew exactly what style of music to play and seamlessly blended Top 40 hits with some of our more obscure requests. To me, a DJ is hugely important to the overall atmosphere of a wedding and Jesse ensured that ours was absolutely fantastic - from the song I talked about in my vows that he later played to the ode to the Longhorns' win over West Virginia - everything was perfect! He was not in the least overbearing or cheesy (which I've experienced at friends' weddings) and ensured that the overall mood of the celebration was relaxed, fun, and just a little bit crazy (though that last part is due in large part to my insane family).

Jesse - thank you so much for making our day wonderful. We couldn't have found a better or more talented person for our day.

After reading reviews about Byrne, we decided to use him for our September wedding. He did music for both our outdoor ceremony and indoor reception.

He did a wonderful job at the ceremony. We had mostly non-traditional music for the ceremony and he did a good job picking out additional songs for the prelude.

For the reception, we provided Byrne a list of songs, but also allowed room for his "creativity" of picking the songs, based on how it was going. He did a fabulous job! We were very impressed with his talent and professionalism. We would hands down suggest Byrne to any (and all) of our closest friends!

Byrne was not able to attend our event as our DJ, but his co-worker Jesse was. My wife and I provided a majority of the songs we wanted and Jesse provided a few of his own. He was very accomodating and MC'd the event as well (amazing MC). Our reception was on the top floor of a hotel, only accessible by a few elevators, and Jesse had to take all of his equipment in pieces. I would definitely recommend this service.

I was referred to Byrne by two friends who used him at their weddings. When we first met Byrne it clicked as he was really listening to our wants and needs and expressed his way of doing things without being pushy or salesy. We met with another DJ who was trying to get us to sign a contract on the spot and told us he'd play songs others would request and wasn't listening to what we were wanting. Byrne is very reasonable in price, good with communication and was at the reception on time. He played the music we wanted and took requests from our friends and definitely kept the night going. We loved it so much we paid for an extra half hour! Byrne is not the typical MC type so sometimes it was hard to hear his voice and know what we were supposed to do, but I was glad he wasn't overbearing like other DJs I've seen. I'd definitely recommend Byrne to anyone! More...

Jesse was the DJ at our wedding. Planning the music for the reception was simplified tremendously by their song suggestion list as a starting point. We were a little slow on the planning part, but Jesse and Byrne were both patient with us.

Jesse adapted to the situation fabulously and had great suggestions. More...

Byrne did an awesome job with everything at my wedding! Byrne has great taste in music and a really great ability to match the mood of the audience to make a wedding awesome. I had a pretty small wedding with a wide variety of people, and was a little worried people wouldn't be up for dancing. Byrne brought the party to life all night long with fantastic music. He played songs I wanted, no songs I didn't.

Since we didn't have a band, and I wanted songs during my ceremony, Byrne coordinated music for that also. He did a fantastic job. Everything was perfect and timed beautifully. Seriously awesome. I was really glad that I did take the extra time to plan music that was meaningful and special to me.

I highly recommend Byrne. He is not cheesy and annoying and wont hovercraft over your wedding reception a la The Wedding Singer. Thanks Byrne for everything!

Byrne DJ'd for the first part of our wedding, that is the ceremony, the cocktail, the dinner, and beginning of dancing. We had an afterparty that we take care of ourselves.
This was probably a more unusual wedding for him since there were a lot of foreigners, and a need for foreign music.
He was very good, he followed our recommendations, playing music that we liked and keeping away the tunes we did not want to hear!
We were happy to work with him :)

We looked into several DJs, and came away from our meeting with Byrne highly impressed. He's very easy-going and we never felt pressured to upgrade to more expensive packages. He asked us what kind of atmosphere we wanted him to set, asked us about specific artists/songs and delivered just that on the day-of! He obviously loves music and has a wide base of knowledge to draw from. We had everything from Frank Sinatra to Willie Nelson at different points and he transitioned seamlessly. The dancing was fantastic. Everyone had a blast and Byrne had a lot to do with that. Correspondence was always prompt and he provides a lot of bang for the buck. Highly recommended! More...

DJ Byrne Rock was AWESOME!!! I recently got married 2 weeks ago and my husband and I were very pleased with his work. We chose this DJ based on the fact that he was very affordable.....when we met him for our initial meet & great, he sold us with his laid back personality, but willingness to play whatever it is we wanted him to play. He even remembered songs that we did NOT want him to play...

A week before the event, there were some last minute changes from my father (a very traditional Vietnamese man)....who wanted VIETNAMESE music to play. I was very AGAINST it....but needed to play at least some since there were older guests who would enjoy it. Byrne just asked for some CD's and played it then and there. Parents & the younger crowd (from both sides of the wedding) were all doing the cha-cha....paso-doble....waltz....worked out great!

Bryne played ALL the music we requested him to play....it was perfect. he stuck to the list we provided...and even through a few last minute requests that the hubby wanted. Great Job Byrne! i would totally hire you again...and recommend you to all my newly engaged friends!

Byrne did a great job at our wedding. We provided him with a list of songs we wanted played, and he did a great job of mixing them in with other new and older songs he selected to match the ambiance of our reception. I had several guests after the wedding ask if they could get a copy of the playlist because they enjoyed it so much! Byrne was always professional, listened to our requests, and was responsive to our needs. He arrived early to set up for our ceremony and was a very 'low maintenance' vendor, which as a bride I appreciated because I was able to focus on just enjoying the day and all our friends and family, not managing vendor issues.

Our indoor/outdoor reception happened to fall on one of the colder nights of the year, and he worked outside for the duration of the night w/o a single complaint. He also managed to get people dancing in the 40-something degree weather, which is no small feat in my book. Byrne was also very responsive via email, and he created the perfect playlist based on a large list of songs that I wanted to hear. I highly recommend Byrne, and I would not hesitate to work with him again. More...

Byrne is a really cool guy - laid back, passionate about music, flexible, and experienced. He was the only DJ we interviewed who was familiar with some of our more obscure music picks and was decidedly non-cheesy. Within two minutes of sitting down with him, we knew we wanted to have him DJ our wedding. It was all the sweeter that he was among the most reasonably priced DJs around and offered a lot for the price.He arrived on time, efficiently set-up for both the reception and ceremony, kindly pulled out a stand mic for our readers at the last minute because of wind/street noise, integrated our play/do not play list seamlessly into the wedding, made announcements as needed without ever being obtrusive or obnoxious, and kept the dance floor hopping. He seems to read the crowd well and select music accordingly. We had a minor snafu at the end of the night: He forgot my name as folks were lining up for a sparkler sendoff! It turned out to be an amusing moment as the crowd yelled out my name for him, but a wee bit awkward. Overall, Byrne was a nice presence throughout the night and had a big hand in making our wedding a fabulous party! More...

One word, AMAZING. Byrne kept the party going all night and there was never a moment when there weren't people dancing. Well worth every penny!

Excellent DJ. The best part  was that was able to create a vibe that fit us through minimal communication. We initially gave him some types of music we liked / disliked, and he was able to generate 3 hours of material around those preferences. Also, we had some specific last minute requests that he accommodated with ease.zero complaints. More...

We hired Byrne for our wedding, and he did a wonderful job. Byrne had a great mix and there was never a dull moment for the reception and he was very receptive to our requests for processional music. We asked for minimal talking from the DJ, a personal preference, and he was happy to oblige. We had a little different way of doing things and he was very flexible with all of it. We wanted an unobtrusive delivery of good music and a gentle nudge through the ceremonies (toast, cake, dance, etc) and that's exactly what we got. More...

Byrne was fantastic at our wedding.  I could not have asked for more.  He met us to discuss our musical tastes at Whole Foods downtown, after I had to reschedule the meeting two or three times.  He was really really nice about it.  He incorporated our music, played stuff we hadn't thought about that went seamlessly with the stuff we liked, and only played the cha cha slide when a guest requested it.  He didn't do a lot of talking, just kept the music playing.  I also felt like he was a bargain compared to many other DJs I talked to.I don't have a single complaint.  He was perfect!  Thanks, Byrne!

Look no further...HIRE DJ BYRNE!!  I scoured the Austin DJ reviews seeking just the right fit for our wedding.  We're really into music and definitely didn't want that "canned" song list you normally hear at weddings.  I found Byrne on YELP and met him briefly to discuss our style/tastes and immediately felt comfortable.  Very important to feel this way, since we were planning our big day from out of state.  You could just tell he was "picking up what we were putting down".  He's very easy going and will do as much (or as little) as you want.  I'm not into too much emceeing or lights whizzing around the dance floor, so thankfully our reception was a dance party without the cheese factor.  Parents, peers, and the little ones were all getting into it.  Plus, upon arrival, our photographers were ecstatic to see Byrne at the ceremony.  Said they recommend him all the time, because he does THE best job in Austin.  I can't agree more.  We absolutely loved him and would suggest him for any event.  He's a class act with great taste, so you can't go wrong.

Byrne was awesome! The dance floor was moving all night and he chose great music to play! We had given him a list of the type of music we wanted and he did a great job mixing it up. He also has an awesome personality and is just an all around cool guy. You will not regret hiring him! More...

We highly recommend Byrne Rock!  Our wedding was a BLAST and everyone was dancing all night! He was great with setting the mood for every part of the evening from cocktail hour through the Reception and into the Open Dance Floor.  He was able to figure out our music personality and was very creative and flexible with our music requests.  We look forward to working with Byrne soon!  Thanks again!

What can I say? Our DJ was the best! He showed up early, and made everything run super smooth! Good music that made people dance but wasn't all top 40.

Byrne does indeed Rock. He had everyone at my wedding dancing. His ability to choose the right music for the crowd is amazing. I had aunts that are 65 years old out there on the dance floor. My cousins age ranging from 5-42 were all there shaking their booties. It was a fabulous time. Highly recommended for his professionalism, creativity and intuition. More...

Byrne helped make our wedding ridiculously awesome.  My husband doesn't dance, but he spontaneously pulled out a Hammer-walk halfway through the evening because of the grooves and the overall grooving-and-shaking mood that Byrne helped create.  Great taste in music, and he definitely read our mostly-non-dancing crowd and paid strict attention to our 'no-list'.  He even played some relatively obscure songs that I WANTED to have played but never gave to him in a list.  That's talent.

For our wedding, we did not want an obnoxious DJ who MC'd the event with a lot of group participation dances and theatrics. Now maybe Byrne CAN do that, but I wouldn't know, because for us he was perfect. Despite his website's proclamation that he is the "Ulitmate Badass DJ of the WORLD" (which is awesome!) Byrne is actually pretty low-key, his goal is to play the perfect music for your event and that's what he concentrates on. We gave him some basic guidelines on what we liked and some do not play songs and trusted him to take it from there, and he did great! He was always accessible and responsive. I never worried.On a related note, Byrne really did go above and beyond for us. My sister-in-law was supposed to sing all the wedding ceremony music for us, in Hebrew and a capella. She got sick on the way down to Austin and by Saturday still had no voice. In a last minute panic, we called Byrne who was on his way to another wedding. Byrne asked us to send him the songs/composers we wanted and he would find the music in Hebrew to play if her voice didn't return by the next day. 3 hours before the wedding her voice was strong enough to sing and the additional music wasn't necessary, but we really appreciate the effort he went through so that I wouldn't be forced to walk down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon.  He is great, give him a shot!

I'd hire him again in a heartbeat! More...

Byrne Rock was fantastic to work with. Right away, wedding guests of all ages hit the dance floor. He knew the right mix of songs to keep them dancing all night as well. He was very professional and had an easy-going DJ personality at the wedding, which should be any bride's biggest concern when interviewing DJs. Byrne is not in any way, a typical cheesy wedding DJ. And trust me, we came across a few in our planning process. We had a good idea of the kinds of songs we wanted to hear, and he played most of them, in addition to others that were real crowd pleasers. We learned about him through our venue, Hamilton Twelve. And they were right on. So to other brides out there, Byrne comes totally recommended! More...

Byrne was one of my favorite vendors. He did an exceptional job of picking out songs that got most of the wedding guests out on the dance floor. Some of my friends at the wedding later remarked that they had never seen such a packed dance floor- and it was all thanks to the awesome music being played. Byrne wasn't the stereotypical "cheesy" DJ- he only did the necessary announcements and kept them short and sweet.

His rates can't be beat, his song choices are great, and I highly recommend him!

Byrne did a great job of turning our wedding into a dance party. Music was a very important part of our reception and Byrne crafted a great list of songs. It was almost sad when the dance party had to end. Great job, Byrne! More...

Byrne was such a great find... He was recommended to me from a girlfriend in the wedding industry and proved himself exceptional! He played the biggest role in the wedding coordinating all wedding and reception music and ensured all items on my Big Day agenda were met as he MC'd! My girlfriend booked him the weekend after he played for ours because he was so good! After watchin my wedding video, everyone was dancing! More...
