A Baton Rouge native and a graduate from LSU’s music program, Ryan Has been following his passion for music and honing his talents for over 10 years. Since joining COMPLETE in 2012, Ryan has left his mark on clients far and wide. Ryan is a star DJ and essential to any party that wants to PARTY! As a musician and composer Ryan brings a unique flair to your experience. Not only has Ryan personally performed over 300 events, he is also the Office Manager for the Baton Rouge Complete office, so he has helped put together almost 2000 events since 2017.
Here’s what Ryan had to say in his DJ interview:
“I would describe my DJ personality as laid-back, friendly, and fun. I want to keep the focus on the couple being the main attraction for the night and I just focus on creating the perfect playlist for everybody but still making sure that everyone has a good night!
A few years ago I got to DJ my sister‘s wedding a few years back and that was a blast being a groomsman and a DJ. It was very chaotic but a lot of fun to run around about being a DJ.
My favorite thing about being a DJ is when I nail that perfect song for the crowd. I know it sounds really cheesy, but I when I play that one song and the crowd cheers and I just know I’ve nailed it. That’s just my favorite feeling.
I think my ability to read a crowd and adapt to multiple situations is what really makes me stand out as a DJ. Whether it’s last-minute changes or surprises for the couple at the event, I’m able to adapt to those changes very swiftly.
My favorite part of the night is definitely the party time of the night. Once we get past all of the “wedding business” and really get all of the crowd on the dance floor and having a good time.
I think my favorite way to pack the dance floor is to kind of trick the guys out there. I’ll play a slow song to get a couples out and then immediately play a line dance and then at that point they are there, so they just kind of stay for the line dance and then you’ve got them out there.
I just kind of stumbled into being a DJ when I was in college and just kind of needed a weekend job. I was a music major so I didn’t have a lot of time during the week and it just kind of worked out to be on just Saturdays at first and then nine years later it’s grown and I’ve really come to love the job.
A fun fact about me is that I have a Bachelor’s Degree in music composition and can play 15 different instruments; including the saxophone, the piano, the guitar, the upright bass, the trumpet, the trombone, the tuba, the clarinet… haha, that’s all I can think of right now!”
Check out what Ryan’s clients had to say:
Our DJ was Ryan and he was AMAZING!!! He kept the party upbeat and fun. The mix of songs he played was appropriate for all age groups and he knew exactly what songs to play to keep our guests dancing. Our dance floor was overflowing. Ryan was super charismatic and attentive. He made sure to play all of our requests as well as the requests of our guests. I can't say enough about Ryan! If you want an ALL-TIME BEST WEDDING EVER, you should definitely request Ryan! (The Knot; 5/5 Stars)
- Amanda P.
I didn't think we could ask for more but then we had Ryan as our DJ. He really listened to our request and desires from the initial ceremony music down to the last song. It was as if he had known us for years! He really did an amazing job and everybody was raving about the music because he read the room so well!
- Angela H. (5 Stars, The Knot)
Ryan with Complete Events was our DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception. He was so understanding over our music choices since we wanted some Disney, video game, and other nerdy background music for our ceremony. He lined up every song choice for our ceremony to the exact part that we wanted the song to start. For our reception, he kept the dance floor moving with a wonderful array of music from all decades for all parties to enjoy. He was a great emcee for our shoe game we played. He mixed in new and old line dances throughout the night. Seeing my grandmother and father-in-law dancing together was one of the best sights from the wedding and a memory I will always cherish. Ryan is an awesome DJ and we would recommend him to everyone. He even snuck in one more song at the end of the night for our wedding party last dance.
- Tiffany H. (5/5 Stars, Google My Business)
My daughter and her husband chose a destination wedding at Nottoway Plantation. It was nerve racking to work with companies over 800 miles away. Complete totally delivered at every step. From the initial phone conversation to the on the fly changes during the reception, they were complete pros! We had bride, groom, wedding party and guest list full of professional ballroom dancers. Ryan kept everyone dancing totally in keeping with the theme - The best things happen when you dance!!
- Joy S.
Ryan was very attentive to my music needs for my reception. He was available by phone regularly and listened to what I wanted to make my reception a fun, party atmosphere for my guests who ranged in age from two to eighty. I've gotten tons of compliments on the music at my wedding and how well the selection appealed to a large group of people. He did a good job of getting people on the dance floor without being pushy, and I enjoyed that he joined in the line dances to help people get the steps.
- Jeanette J.
As a wedding planner I use you often and in my eyes there is no better DJ company in the Baton Rouge area. Ryan was incredible and he made it so easy to work with him. Thank you Ryan!
- Valerie T.
When it comes to getting to party with Louisiana’s newest couples and to celebrate any and every occasion with music, John thinks DJ’ing is a no-brainer. John has been DJ’ing with Complete since 2006! (Yes, that was right out of high school for him!) John grew up with a passion for music and also enjoys playing guitar, writing music, leading worship at his church, and dabbling on the many other instruments he enjoys playing. John focuses on professionalism when he DJ’s.
Here’s what John has to say about himself:
“I would describe my DJ personality as very confident, but really a big part of my personality comes out when I meet with the bride to decide what she’s looking for in a DJ. I very much enjoy getting on the mic, interacting with the crowd, asking questions, and getting people on the dance floor. I love getting to be a DJ because it’s essentially like getting paid to party. You get to go out to an event that’s a lot of fun.
My favorite part of a wedding is at the end of the night. It’s really great to see the satisfaction on the guests’ faces and get to talk to the bride and groom about how much fun they had at the reception. It just really brings me a lot of joy, and that joy and that experience is one of the reasons I continue to DJ, and it is definitely my favorite part of the night.
I think what makes me unique as a DJ is that I really bring a strong sense of professionalism to the DJ experience. I work a normal 9-to-5. I am married. I have kids. I’ve done quite a few weddings and I really know what the bride expects. So, I bring a professional attitude when it comes to meeting with a bride and being on time for everything. It may seem like a small thing but I think that makes me really stand out among a lot of other DJs in the field.
My way to pack the dance floor is that I like to first put on a slow dance song, a crowd-pleaser to get everybody dancing out there with a special somebody or significant other. Then right after that, I like to put on the Cupid Shuffle. I know it can be a little bit of a cliché song to play these days but I really like it because you can get everybody on the dance floor and I can literally get out there with a microphone, teach everybody the dance in a few seconds and get the entire floor packed. The reason I originally became a DJ was that I liked the idea that it was a fun job that I get to do to make a little extra cash. I could typically DJ on the weekends and still have a 9 to 5 but it’s really become a lot more than that. I’ve been a DJ since 2006. I’ve done hundreds of weddings. Really, just being a part of that special day and seeing people genuinely happy at the end of the night really means a lot.
One fun fact about me is that my wife and I played in a band years ago around Baton Rouge called Lucy and the Gamblers. It was a soul funk band and we played at local venues like Chelsea’s Café. I played guitar and wrote music for the band and it was a lot of fun.”
We used a Complete DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception, and could not have been more pleased! John really catered to our requests and all of our guests still rave about how much fun they had on the dance floor.
- Chelsea K.
John was great. He got out there and made sure everyone had a good time. The music was awesome. A mix of everything. I don't think one song didn't get danced to. Being a younger couple , we had more then a few older people at the wedding and they loved all the music. He was very friendly and checked in with me through out the night to make sure I was happy.
- Brooke S.
Our DJ John was amazing. He was attentive to requests and put up with me. Almost every song we asked for was played, and the only one that wasn't, was because I forgot to ask for it. But working together we found an alternative. He was really professionally dressed too. If I used you guys again, I would ask for him specifically.
- Lacey H.
John was an amazing DJ! He kept the crowd lively and played everything perfectly as discussed. He even got out there to demonstrate some line dances! The experience was great!!
- Alicia B.
Our DJ was John Foval! He was just as awesome. He called me about 2 weeks before the wedding and we went through our preferences and everything we wanted him to do! He did so well with us even though our timeline was off so his ability to be flexible was on point. He listened to what we asked of him. He came and checked on us throughout the night to ensure we were happy with his work. He kept the dance floor full the entire night.
- Mallory F.
John did a wonderful job as the DJ of our wedding. His professionalism and experience were evident throughout. He was really intentional with details to make sure things were perfect and ran smoothly. We are beyond thankful for such great service! (Google; 5/5 Stars)
- Lauren B.
Brennan, our DJ was amazing! He played the perfect mix of music. Everyone at the reception loved the photo booth. The time and care everyone at Complete Weddings + Events provided us really was amazing. We will forever recommend you to everyone.
- Jessica M.
10/10!! All songs choices were perfect. Brennan did an amazing job. It was a high energy dance party, exactly what we wanted!. Thank you so much for being part of our incredible wedding!!
- Amanda S.
10/10 Exceptional job!!
- Dallas F.
Justin was amazing!!!
- Stacie A.
Sergio was an absolute dream to work with. We had a great pre-party discussion so he could learn more about our group and what to expect. At the party, he was very attentive to the mood of the room and picked great music. Our group was much more subdued this year than I had anticipated and prepped him for, but Sergio never missed a beat. When everyone finally hit the dance floor, they hit it hard, and he kept the party jumping.
I really hope to work with Complete Weddings and our DJ again in the future. Thank you for such an awesome evening.
- Hilary T. (10/10)
David was amazing!!!! Everything was very organized and well planned out!! It was the most perfect night!!! I didn’t want the night to end!!
