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!

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.

A true professional, Byrne created the prefect soundtrack for our wedding. From cocktail hour to dinner to dancing Byrne played our "must plays" and improvised perfectly from there. Top notch all the way!

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!

DJ Byrne is extremely talented and I was so happy to have him at our wedding! He did a tremendous job keeping everyone dancing and making important announcements. He played lots of music that described us as a couple but also music that appealed to our guests :)

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!

Byrne is by far the best DJ around. I was an out of state bride and he came highly recommended to me by my photographer who obviously attends a ton of weddings in the Austin area and she hit the nail on the head. His prices are extremely reasonable. He kept the party going all night and there was never a moment on the dance floor!! Bravo to a great night!! Thank You Byrne!!

Byrne was absolutely wonderful at our wedding. He did a great mix of songs we asked him to play, songs requested by guests, and songs to get everyone on the dance floor and enjoying themselves.
He was even so kind as to play a song AFTER the last song when my uncle requested it. He also handled it great when my father in law threw a surprise dance request at him. :)
All in all, I could not be happier with his service and would recommend him to anyone!

We couldn't ask for a better DJ for our wedding. My husband is Filipino from California and I'm Puerto Rican. Our wedding was in Austin, where we live. Most of our guests where from out of the state and I was worried that we could find a DJ that will understand our music preferences. Byrne listened to our preferences and did not make assumptions. Therefore, he was able to make a good mix of music using our list of preferred music and his music knowledge. The dance floor was full throughout the whole wedding. Everyone left talking about how much fun they had. My husband and I had a blast!!! Music was important in making people have a good time. This DJ is affordable, listens, does not take over the party, and play music for everybody to have FUN.

We used Byrne for our wedding and we are so glad we picked him! He is a super chill, cool, guy and actually listens to what type of music you want, and then adds on from there. Also, throughout our wedding we had to change some things, and he was very accommodating and made everything really easy. His timing was perfect, and we never had to worry about those awkward long pauses when the DJ is trying to find the right song for something. If I could do it all over again, I would definitely pick him a second time around! Thanks Byrne!

Byrne was great. We gave him a playlist of songs we wanted played and he stuck to it - which was perfect since my husband and I and all of our friends don't typicaly listen to "top 40". The only thing was that I asked him to stay until 10:30 or 11 - so after Zach and I made our exit he could play a little bit longer for our guests to keep dancing. But he packed up right as we were leaving and didn't bother to stay, which was a bummer especially since he asked for more money at the end of the night for bringing another mic.
He' also not the type to hog the mic - which was GREAT! He takes it and announce stuff when he needs to but he wasn't overbearing. Overall good decision.

As mother of the bride, I wish to thank Byrne Rock for his exceptional work at my daughter's wedding! From beginning to end, it was obvious that Byrne was totally committed to making the reception perfect. He kept the guests highly engaged , kept the timing of events on track , and never missed a beat with with music selection. I received numerous complements from guests on how impressed they were with him. He is professional, affordable, and obviously passionate about the work he does. Thank you, Byrne!!

Byrne was amazing! He kept the dance floor full the entire event. Listened to what we liked and play a good mix of music to make everyone happy. Best DJ ever!

I'm really glad we chose Byrne to DJ our wedding. I've been to several where the DJ is overly cheesy or tries too hard, but Byrne wasn't like that at all. He was easy to work with and laid back. We also had to switch to a rain plan the day of, and he was able to work around that.
Member Since: 5/13/2009
Hiring Byrne was a great decision. He was friendly and easy to correspond with. He was professional, showed up on time and ran everything effortlessly! No cheesy DJ here, he is just a cool laid-back guy. We had the most awesome dance party at our wedding, all thanks to Byrne!

DJ Byrne is the best! Everyone was on the dance floor having a great time!

Byrne did an amazing job at our wedding. He was easy to work with and seemed to really get our taste in music. When we started planning our reception, we knew we wanted a DJ over a band, but were really afraid of hiring a cheesy DJ who played bad music. Byrne is actually soft spoken and made the appropriate announcements without injecting his own commentary into the event. He kept the dance floor going all night long and knew just when to speed things up and when to slow everything down. He followed our Do Not Play list to a T, especially when some of our guests tried to request some truly awful music. I would absolutely recommend Byrne Rock to anyone looking for a wedding or party DJ. He was fantastic!

Byrne is so easy to work with. He put together a great playlist of songs and does a really great job of transitioning between songs, introductions, speeches, etc. He really listened to the types of music I wanted and didn't want. His rates are also really reasonable.
