  • DJ Bryan Mahanes was AWESOME! He seriously was SO much fun and brought a party to our party! He got everyone on the dance floor, even those that don't like to dance! After giving him a few ideas of what we liked prior to the wedding, he was able to select great song choices based on our taste! He was great at doing remixes, adding in his own, and playing the "popular/chorus" parts of great songs. He COMPLETELY exceeded my expectations! I initially thought I wanted to hire a band because that's what I thought would be "more fun" but I am SO happy I got a DJ and went with Bryan. Having a DJ allows you to choose exactly what you and your guests like and the possibilities are endless. I HIGHLY recommend Bryan and wish we could relive that night!

  • If you want to have a rocking wedding with a extremely talented musician and DJ, book Bryan Mahanes! As a bride who planned my own wedding, Bryan made the DJ/music process a piece of cake. I highly recommend booking him for guitar during cocktail hour too!!! He even played guitar in addition to 2 of my family members playing live music with him (piano and viola) and provided all the equipment and stands. Bryan took time out of his day leading up to the wedding to have calls with us and go over timeline etc. He's a hands on DJ, knows how to read a crowd, and is a super talented musician! He kept us dancing all night! From a planning perspective I really appreciated that he sent over a timeline form for us to fill out of songs to play/not play, entrance exit songs, what type of vibe we want etc. Byran took this form and added his musical abilities and made our wedding a HUGE HIT. He kept us on-timeline which I really appreciated too. Thank you Bryan - our day was a hit because of... Read more

  • I had the pleasure of working with Bryan during a wedding in July 2020, right in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic! As a wedding planner myself I am accustomed to being the one that is moving around the most ensuring the event goes exactly as planned. But on this night I can honestly say Bryan was hustling around the event as much as I was! With the sq ft restrictions for the number of people that can be in one space at one time he literally had to be in 2 places at once for most of the night. To ensure we followed government parameters with social distancing he was required to set up in 4 different places to ensure all guests were regaled by entertainment; 2 of which included his own personal & lovely guitar playing. This guy handled it all with such poise and professionalism, not to mention just an overall positive and fun attitude. By the time the dance floor officially opened the guests were all on their feet, both young and old, and for those brief hours they were able to esca... Read more

  • As a wedding professional and wedding planner in the Charleston area, I highly recommend Bryan for any event! Although I've known him for years, he constantly surprises me with a unique "something" each event. Always responsive to text messages, phone calls and emails. Timely for a clean set-up and flexible to "roll with the punches" during an event. 5 stars ALL THE WAY with Bryan the DJ!

  • Bryan is THE BEST! He made our wedding so much fun! He played every song we requested as a must play and literally rocked the house! He played live guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour which was so awesome - We have received so many compliments! He was also so flexible when we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID. Bryan is truly one of a kind and very talented. We cannot recommend him enough!!

  • DJ Bryan was everything we wanted and more!!! He was a rockstar throughout the whole night. He played acoustic guitar during the ceremony and cocktail hour and then amazing music during the reception. Because of Covid we had to spread the wedding out a bit and DJ Bryan was a trooper and played in 4 different locations throughout the night. So many of my guest came up to me later and said “that was ONE guy!!???” He played music that made everyone dance, it was perfect. I HIGHLY recommend Bryan the DJ, you will not be disappointed.

  • Bryan ROCKS! From our first phone conversation I could tell he was laid back, fun, and incredibly passionate about his work. He played the acoustic guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour and his playing was absolutely beautiful-I received so many comments from guests that they couldn’t believe all the music (from acoustic to DJ’ing) was the same guy and how impressed they were with how effortlessly he transitioned everything throughout the day. At the reception- HE.BROUGHT.THE.PARTY! Every song was better than the last and we couldn’t get off the dance floor! He transitions between music perfectly, so no song ever played too long and he catered to everyone in the room happy and dancing all night. So many of our friends asked if he would be willing to fly to California, or NH, etc to play at their weddings because he was literally THE BEST DJ I’ve ever had at any wedding I’ve been to. He was also a great MC which was important to me in keeping up the mood and getting peo... Read more

  • Couldn’t have better things to say about Bryan. We had very specific music requests and he nailed them! All of our guests were on the dance floor for 4+ hours straight - they barley ate their dinner - and are still raving about the music!

    Hannah! I hope your honeymoon was out of this world! :) I thank you both for having me. It was insanely good and I loved celebrating with you and all your family and friends! Congrats!! xox Bryan the DJ

  • DJ or band? Band or DJ? I think most couples face this question from the beginning of wedding planning. With Bryan - we actually didn’t have to choose! Bryan is not only a very talented DJ, he also plays acoustic guitar. We booked Bryan for our October 5th wedding and he played acoustic guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour and then DJ’d the reception. We can’t even begin to tell you how many guests even just after the ceremony, were commenting and complimenting how talented and awesome he was! He even learned a song on the guitar for me, which was a surprise for my now husband. And he killed it! He kept the crowd on their feet all night long while DJ’ing our reception. He was so good, he even had my husband and I in the air when some of the groomsman lifted us up for the last song…our guests even tried convincing Bryan to stay and keep playing. No one wanted to night or the jams to end. Bryan was professional, fun, able to read the crowd and just a cool guy.... Read more

  • We hired Bryan to play acoustic guitar for the ceremony and cocktail hour and then to DJ the rest of the night. Everyone LOVED him! From the beginning, I knew Bryan was the right DJ for us because he clearly takes a personalized approach to each wedding instead of just playing the typical mix of songs. The entire night, Bryan played music that we loved and got everyone dancing. It was like he knew exactly what we wanted to hear. He even took some unusual requests that made the night a blast. Besides being a great DJ, Bryan is also an extremely talented musician. I didn't start to cry until I heard him playing guitar. We couldn't recommend Bryan enough, he made our wedding an absolute blast!!!

  • Bryan could not have been any more perfect for our wedding. We had a unique situation where our ceremony was offsite at Wingate Plantation and our reception was at Leon's Oyster Shed in downtown Charleston. Because of the location of Leon's, we were not able to have a DJ with a sound system like a traditional wedding. We still wanted to be able to have our traditional dances like first dance, mother/son, and father/daughter. He was able to coordinate with the event manager at Leon's to play over a smaller sound system that met the location regulatory requirements. When we weren't having our formal dances we asked Bryan to play acoustic guitar for everyone. WOW! Bryan was incredible! He had so much passion and love in his playing. It was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. For one of the formal dances, the mother/son dance, my Mom and I decided to have a little fun. We danced first to a great Rod Stewart song that gave the crowd the impression of a traditional dance... Read more
