Wedding DJ Byron Bay

Welcome to Wedding DJ Byron Bay. My name is Matthew Bowden. I am a professional Wedding DJ based near Byron Bay who is also available for weddings on the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

I have been a professional wedding DJ for over ten years and know the importance that the right music plays on that special day. It is important for me as a Wedding DJ to liaise with clients before the wedding and ensure that the music is also perfect match.

I have been collecting LP records for close to 20yrs amassing a collection of over 5000 LP’s and singles.

In many ways I am an old school wedding DJ and though I also bring CD’s I find that playing records is something that the audience appreciate the nostalgia of as well as it is far more interesting to look at than a man hunched over an I pod or laptop clicking buttons. I am happy for guests to flip through my crates and pick things out during my set and will quite happily play any requests.

I also have a large collection of Jazz and Soul records and more mellow music that is perfect for dinner and earlier on in the reception. Please see my play list page for some examples of likely tunes 

Wedding DJing is an art in the ability to play tunes that can appeal to the many different generations that attend a wedding. I tend to play tunes that have a familiarity and can get everyone jumping without being overly cheesy (Happy to play cheesy if requested to do so). My collection runs the gamut of styles from 60’s soul, 70’s classic rock to 80’s pop and even House and Techno if requested. Though under my moniker the Funk Phanatik in Byron Bay and surrounds I play mainly rarer Funk Soul and Disco. I also with friends run parties called Deep Funk in the Forest and I can be heard on Bay FM on Monday 2-4pm. As a wedding DJ though I play a very diverse set of many genres and eras that keeps the dance floor shaking.

My set up includes 2 turntables and a mixer, microphone, 2 CD decks and 2 450W self powered speakers with stands, plus a 400w Subwoofer. I can also organize tent hire if needed and for extra cost can provide a video projector and screen to show movies/slideshows during my set.

A normal set lasts 4 Hrs but I am happy to play 6-7 hours if needed.  For bookings and pricing please contact me on 02 66802349 or 0401955052 or via email
