About DJ Barry McKay

DJ? Yes! But you're truly hiring a Master of Ceremonies to lead the celebration for your guests!

  If you live in the Hampton Roads area, you might hear Barry McKay on the radio on 94.9 the Point and 101.3 2WD! Entertainment at your wedding reception is without a doubt one of the most important parts. You want to be sure that your MC will result in an unforgettable celebration of your wedding day. 

  Planning a wedding reception can be extremely stressful (as you might already know), and anxiety is the last thing you need when you are celebrating the happiest day of your life. Let Barry and his wife Jill walk you through his detailed Wedding Reception Game Plan and help take the stress out of your planning!

  We know there are many "DJ's" you can choose from. Today, sound equipment can be purchased cheaply, all the same songs are available  to anyone with an I-Tunes account and you can get business cards printed free! But take a minute and ask, "Who is going to be talking on the mic at my reception and reflect my vision for the  day?" That's what you are really hiring, an MC! Someone who has the talent and experience to facilitate the grand entrance, the first dance, the toasts, and play music for a crowd ages 6 to 80 years old and beyond! You want your family and friends talking about the great time they at your reception the next day! It's your gift to them to say "thanks" for celebrating our wedding day!

I am so glad that we went with Barry and his amazing wife Jill for our wedding! They truly are such an amazing team, not to mention a beautiful example of love.

My husband and I met with Barry and Jill when we were in the midst of looking for a DJ for our wedding, but after that first meeting our search was over! They are SO extremely professional, poised, organized, and overall excited to have the opportunity to be a part of your big day. They were always responsive to emails, and his online system makes it so easy to request songs, set up the schedule of events, and even put songs you don't want to hear.

We were so lucky that Barry knew our venue (The Lesner Inn) so well, but it was apparent he would thrive anywhere. On the wedding day, he and Jill set up and tore down absolutely everything on their own! Our guests even thought that Jill was my wedding planner, as she was running around making sure everything went perfectly to plan, and for that I am so thankful.

The music is SUCH a huge part of the wedding day, I am so thankful we chose to go with Barry! Jill is truly an added bonus that we never expected- thank you both so much for helping to make our special day so perfect.

Barry and Jill McKay are SUCH an awesome team! If you are looking for the perfect DJ - these are the folks to hire immediately! I am kind of picky on my music - I am the type of person who creates my own "wedding playlist". Barry and Jill were so accommodating to play certain songs that I had picked out. What makes Barry special is how he reads the audience. He kept everyone on the dance floor ALL night. Everyone had an absolute BLAST! What makes Jill special is how she kept the flow going throughout the night (which is something a wedding coordinator would do, and we didn't hire one). She really kept all the reception activities organized and made sure we were happy. Thank you Jill and Barry!!!

I take my career in the wedding industry particularly in the Dj area very seriously. I want only the best for every single couple that I Dj for. When I am booked couples often ask me for a referral for another professional wedding DJ. The only other professional wedding DJ that I ever recommend is Dj buried because he has only the highest standards that he gives to every bride and groom.

Barry & Jill are a great duo to work with. They keep the reception organized and vendors up to date on what the next step is. They have never once disappointed my brides. I Love working with them!

Barry McKay is an amazing DJ to work with. He has the ability to work the crowd and keep people on the dance floor. Every client I have ever referred him to has always been pleased. If you want a professional DJ, Barry is your guy!

Love working with this DJ! Barry McKay and his lovely bride are fun, interactive, and truly go out of their way to have the best party/reception ever! Hire him- he's good people (and lots of my destination couples don't know that he's on the radio every afternoon!!)
