Butch himself was great, from playing music that was varied and perfect for a family-centered wedding to how he interacted with the guests. I woudl highly recommend Butch for anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding."

"We just wanted to take this moment to let you know how much fun you made our special day. You were FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! and really kept the party going. Your attention to our request for music and especially the ceremony was impeccable. All the guest commented on how much fun they had and even got people who are kind of reserved to loosen up and enjoy. We know we were a small reception, but you treated us like we were the most important party ever. You will always be remembered as a very important part of our wedding and will come highly recommended by us!"
- Frank & Laurie Dore
"Thank you again for helping to make Eryn and BJ's wedding such a wonderful experience. You handled everything so well and we really appreciate all of your hard work. The sound work you did for the ceremony was just what we needed without being intrusive. I wanted a natural sound and your work made it just that but our guests were able to hear the vows too. The reception consisted of a wide range of personalities and you were great at getting people relaxed and having a good time. It was fun for the young children and adults, for tea totalers and those that had a cocktail or two. All of the feedback from our guests is positive and please feel free to give my name to anyone considering using you at their event. Thank you again for being a part of such an important day to us and making it so special."
- Robyn Richardson
"Butch was awesome! Incredible guy to work with. Very helpful in making this a wonderful celebration. Just about everyone attending commented on the DJ, his music and how he really got everyone involved and having a fun time. Butch is an incredible talent and one of the nicest people I've ever worked with on an event!"
"Thank you for being such a HUGE awesome part of our special day. Thank you for putting up with the many requests and demands and working with us to make sure everything was perfect for our day. Your fun loving energy brought a great atmosphere to the party and definitely got people out of their seats. We are glad you were able to spend your Saturday night with us. We would have let you play all night if Carolina Beach would have let us! Thank you again for everything!"
-Alyson and Valtteri Halonen
"Butch was awesome. A truly nice guy, outstanding interaction with our friends, many of whom commented on how much they enjoyed him & the music. He a was a fun & helpful presence who added so much to our day. Several of our friends either knew him or knew of him and said that he is a highly respected performer & presence in the music profession, particularly in the Myrtle Beach area."
-Linda Washburn and Debra
"DJ Butch and his wife Susan were all a bride could wish for in a DJ team. They were a dream to work with and Susan was available for any questions a neurotic Bride-to-Be could come up with! Their easy-to-follow questionnaire made selecting music and organizing the flow of the reception a breeze and the up-lighting DJ Butch had available made for the perfect ambiance in our reception hall. We couldn't have asked for a better value or a more wonderful experience than personalized attention we received from Butch and Susan. They worked tirelessly to make our special day stress-free and truly perfect!"
-Erika and Nat Lowe
"Best DJ ever! He and Susan were extremely helpful in planning and organizing the music for our wedding ceremony and reception. They were always available to give suggestions and help with the music selection. DJ Butch Barnes knows how to entertain and your guests will not be disappointed. Everyone danced all night long. He made everything perfect!"
-Courtney and Patrick Whiteside
"Butch did such an amazing job at my wedding! Not only were my husband and I pleased with the turnout, our guests absolutely loved him! He and his wife were wonderful to work with, prompt and professional.
-Kylie and Nick Rawls
"My parents met DJ Butch Barnes at a bridal fair at Silver Coast Winery on Ocean Isle. They came back telling me they met the perfect DJ – he was personable and professional, had an amazing music selection and even was willing to accommodate my mom’s polka requests for our Polish family members and my request to let our family members request a song when they RSVP’d. Everything they said about him was true and he exceeded our expectations. Butch and his wife Susan were so responsive and organized. Their pre-wedding questionnaire was super helpful to make sure we didn’t forget anything and ensure he had everything he needed. At the last minute, days before the wedding, we realized we needed more lighting at the venue and Butch was able to come early to the wedding with his lighting equipment to set up. Everything looked amazing and he really was the life of the party! He looked great in his tuxedo and even came on to the dance floor a few times to really get the crowd going! We had so many people dancing the entire time and they raved about how much fun they had the next day. We had our guests send in requests and there were so many slow songs that we asked Butch to scrap the list minus a few favorite songs. His list was so amazing I regretted sending him requests altogether. Butch made our wedding so much fun and I highly recommend him for future events! Everything was amazing! I would tell your brides to trust that you'll pick songs to get the party going and really read the crowd. Music was very important to me and I wish I had given less requests because you did such an amazing job!"

I’m giving out high recommendations for another local business - DJ Butch Barnes! Native North Carolinan & resident of Calabash, I have nothing but praises to sing! He truly out did himself at my event, leaving me & my guests having a ball to the music & his MC’ing. In the past, I’ve had issues w/DJs due to my eclectic music taste/playlists. DJ Butch had no problem, said ‘if I don’t have it, I’ll get it for the event!” At the event he checked in with me, was completely responsive to my requests/guidance/last minute changes - you name it! No fuss & no strange ‘you have to be kidding me’ look. In fact, at all times he had a smile and a ‘no problem’ attitude! DJ Butch’s MCing was awesome, had my guests up & moving around, where they needed to be & enjoying themselves. Music makes or breaks the event. An MC out of control is just as horrific as the wrong genre of music being played or no DJ at all. In my opinion, DJ Butch is the ‘knight in shining armor’ in the Calabash area when it comes to DJs for your event! (yes I know laying it on thick but I’ve had events ruined by DJs before.) I highly recommend DJ Butch Barnes & can’t sing enough praises about him.
"We hired Butch to DJ our wedding ceremony and reception. What a great choice! He not only handled emcee duties like a seasoned veteran, but the dance floor was packed all night!"
– Kristen Miller Little
"Highly recommended. The best DJ I have seen in a long time! I can't recommend him highly enough."
– Dustin Costello
"He was the DJ for our most recent monthly Summerville Shag Club Dance. He was nothing short of professional and impressive. He was entertaining and kept them dancing all night!
– Lee Hoff
"From the moment we met Butch and his wife Susan, we knew they were a great match for us. It's important to find people you can connect with. Butch did a fantastic job as the DJ for our wedding ceremony held at Silver Coast Winery and we made some pretty awesome friends. I highly recommend him!"
- Taryn & Shannon Clemmons
"We of the North Strand Sail and Power Squadron were happy to get Butch Barnes to DJ our 2015 Christmas Party. Butch's equipment and sound is first rate and he brought an excitement that is hard to describe. Butch is an entertainer, so much more than someone who just plays music, and he tailored the music to our location and age group. Butch got people up and dancing and they had a great time. I heard one member say that more people were dancing than they had ever seen dance at any of our previous parties. Many of our members felt the entertainment Butch provided was the best we have ever had. The committee for next year's party has already decided to invite Butch back for 2016."
- Jake Kanoy, SEO & Bonnie Kanoy, SAO
"Absolute best DJ! Before the wedding was even over we received comments on how great our DJ was. He listened to the little instruction that we gave him and turned our wedding into the best night ever! So perfect!"
- Megan Stiles Schulz
"Your friendliness and ability to get everyone dancing and having a good time all night long was one of the best parts of the day! I can't thank you enough for everything that you did for us on our wedding day! It was such an amazing night! We had so many compliments on what a great DJ we had. I can't think of one thing that you should change!"
-Brandi and Lee Walls
"We really enjoyed having Butch as our DJ for our wedding. He did a fantastic job and everyone really loved him. He was very interactive with the guests."
-Leslie and Zach Ligon
"Butch went above and beyond to ensure our day went off exactly as planned. Although we had cold and windy conditions, he kept the energy high and kept things moving along for us. He eased any concerns I had before the actual wedding day and I would highly recommend him."
-Alyssa and Stephen Comfort
"We had the best experience with DJ Butch Barnes! We honestly could not have asked for anyone better! He had a better plan than I did when it came to when to do the special dances during the reception and for the cake cutting. We had a change of venue at literally days before the wedding and he had no problem changing location and helping me get through it. Not to mention his wife, she was a tremendous help! She helped cordinate the line up for walking down the aisle to transitioning to pictures to introductions. They are by far the best people I have ever worked with. They are a great team together. If we ever needed another DJ for a special occasion, Butch would be the one and only I would go to. I cannot thank you and your wife enough for everything that y'all did for us to make our day the best day ever!"
-Savannah and Chad Barlow
"You did a fantastic job at Greg and Katie's wedding reception! Everything was fantastic, would do it over again if we could it was so good. DJ Butch Barnes is the best bar none as far as I am concerned , his interactions with the wedding party and all the guests made for a great night. Everyone had a blast at the reception, and we would recommend Butch to party with anytime. All I heard from everyone involved was "man, he is great!" but Jane and I knew it was coming!"
-Gary and Jane Smith, parents of the groom
I knew when our daughter first got engaged and set a date that Butch was going to be the first person I booked for the wedding! Butch has an infectious personality and is so engaging with his audience. He never meets a stranger! The music selection was spot on for all ages! Everyone had an amazing time and we got many comments on how great he was. He is the absolute best BY FAR!
We love you so much, Butch!
-Pam & Danny Beam, parents of the bride
Butch was beyond amazing. Butch did an amazing job, period. Everyone commented on how they loved how he got involved with the crowd! He did an excellent job getting a feel for what the crowd wanted and everyone had such a great time dancing the night away on what was simply a perfect night.
-Meredith & Kyle Eggers
DJ Butch is Awesome!! So is Officiant Butch!! We originally hired Butch to DJ our wedding and about two weeks before the wedding we hired him as our officiant. Our original officiant (our friend) decided at the last minute that they were not going to be able to make it. Thank god we had DJ Butch! He was more than happy to help us out and everything was perfect! Butch was very professional but still fun and energetic! Our ceremony started late and he kept the reception organized and flowing well and included everything he could that we specially requested and still gave plenty of time for dancing. It was relieving having Butch on our wedding day and I would definitely recommended hiring him for any event. You can tell he has been doing this for awhile and was an asset on our wedding day! DJ/Officiant Butch is Fabulous!!
