What Type of Music is Played

Destination Weddings

DJ Bryan Mc Donnell is highly experienced in doing full evening weddings and plays a brilliant mix of music to honour all tastes and age groups.

DJ Bryan Mc Donnell works directly with clients through online consultation prior to the event to create a set list for the night and values the input of clients in selecting their chosen music for the night.

DJ Bryan Mc Donnell is also an open format DJ who plays a mix of many genres, rather than just one single genre like House or Hip Hop.

“In my ten years of DJ experience, I have come to learn that the primary objective is to entertain the crowd with the best selection of music which everybody knows and likes to sing and dance to.

Like any other individual, I do have my personal preference in music but as an entertainer, these tastes must take a back seat and I much prefer seeing people having a great time than playing what I would listen to from day to day.

From my experience, the music that keeps the dance floor rocking is all the hits from the ’70s ’80s 90’s, earlier ’00s and not to mention the hits from the last number of years that have earned an important place in my playlists and sets.”

Destination Weddings

Destination Weddings

Ireland is extremely popular for destination weddings due to its many luxurious and historical venues.

Having the experience of DJing in North America, DJ Bryan Mc Donnell understands the important differences between the types of music played in weddings in Ireland and the United States as some songs typically played at an Irish wedding would not be known by a North American audience and vice versa.

If you are a couple based in North America and considering having a wedding in Ireland, you will have peace of mind that your DJ will understand how to interact with your travelling audience.

Multi-Cultural Weddings

Multicultural Weddings

Multi-Cultural Weddings are becoming increasingly common in Ireland due to the number of non-nationals now living here.
