Hello and Welcome!
I am your Wedding Host, Patrick Byrd
Congratulations! The Event you are celebrating is no doubt a special one. From the vendors you are choosing to the venue location and time of year, you are designing your heart’s wish. The day finally comes, with endless details to manage, perhaps with the catering, champagne toast, cake, photographers, and much more. Because of problems that can arise, I have seen many times how bridal or anniversary couples are often unable to truly enjoy the evening.
Having the right Host makes all the difference.
Here is a Video & Slideshow of my most memorable Events and Moments...

REVIEWS from WeddingWire.com
An entertainer is often only as good as the reviews from the brides themselves. Here are a few passages...
We found Patrick and his wife Reverend Launa on a website
and we are so glad we did. We contacted them and contracted with them to officiate our daughter's wedding in Suffolk, Va. We had the ceremony at our home with around 35-40 guests. They were professional, kind, attentive to detail and simply wonderful. We really were clueless on how to conduct a wedding but with Patrick and Launa's guidance we had a wonderful event.
Their word is as good as gold and they proved to be the best investment we could have made. Our daughters happiness was our main concern and
all of her wishes were realized mainly due to this dynamic duo's
caring and experience in officiating and DJ hosting.
We would recommend their services to anyone. We really can't say enough praise to express our thankfulness to them for making
our daughter's special day so memorable.

" We had so many complements from our guests on how excellent our DJ was. From the start he was very knowledgeable and organized and helped make the whole process much smoother. He provided an excellent outline regarding the timeline and selection of music. He is also wonderful at reading a crowd and keeping the party going!"

Patrick did an amazing job at our wedding on May 9, 2015!
We could not have asked for a better DJ. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any event! Patrick spoke with me multiple times over the course of our planning months to gain information about us to ensure he did an awesome job. He met with us to review all of the details and executed them flawlessly. He completely exceeded our expectations! Not only did we think he did a great job, we received many compliments from our guests about him.
I cannot thank you enough Patrick!! :-)

I had to drop you a little letter thanking you for DJ’ing and MC’ing our wedding. Everything was fantastic! You were able to bring our two different sides of the family together as one on that day and everyone had such a great time. I can’t say thank you enough! You were very professional and the music, lighting, and fun energy you brought to the room made the night so wonderful!

Patrick was an absolute hit at our wedding!
For our entire wedding day, our custom music choices really reflected
who we are as a couple, which we couldn't have done without Patrick. For our ceremony, he worked with our officiant (which happened to be his wonderful wife) to ensure that she was heard loud and clear. He kept us on schedule all day and kept the party going until they kicked us out. He played a fantastic mix of oldies, dance, fun current music, and special requests. The day seemed to fly by, but some of my favorite memories are those when a majority
of our wedding guests, young and old, were out
on the dance floor having a great time.
Thank you, Patrick!

Simple Disc Jockeys focus only on the music.
An Event Host will help you design the perfect evening, and manage these details on the night of. He will lead and musically entertain the audience throughout the event. The focus of the night is on you. The Event Host is simply your guide. He is attentive to your guests, knowledgeable about the music, in communication with the banquet staff, and is a warm personality
for the evening. That is what I do….
20 years ago, I began performing as a Broadcast Dj. Radio became the unique art of talking openly to an audience you could not see. In the nightclub circuit for several years afterwards, I learned more about traditional and high-energy music mixing. From the Hoppin’ 50’s to Disco 70’s, to the Club Sounds of the 90’s, I found the music that made people move! Each night was different: the mood, energy level, and musical interest of the audience. To be successful with clubs and audiences, you must be VERSATILE! Versatility became a part of me as I began Mobile Dj and
Event Host work in 1998.
At Wedding Receptions and Private Events, many factors play into a successful evening the client is paying for. A well guided photographer, timeliness of banquet staff, preparation of toasts, cueing speakers and presenters, are just a few important parts of the night. Over the years, I often watched these things
unfold not so well…
I knew my work needed to grow beyond the music. With every event, I began to understand the needs of the client, ways to design and arrange special presentations, and even how to build in soft background music that highlights special moments. The more I personally arranged and guided the event, the more the client or wedding couple could sit back, relax, and truly enjoy the evening spotlight.
Today, I am here for you as a versatile and experienced Disc Jockey, and as an Event Host. As your Host, I will work with the audience, special guests of honor, vendors, venue staff, and of course the Bride and Groom, to get the most from the evening celebration! Whether a quiet group of 25 or energetic crowd of 250, you want your family and friends to have a great time.
So do I …
