Brian Nagle, aka DJ Disco Phantom, has been lighting up dance floors in Vermont for eight years. In addition to weddings, Brian has a diverse background of DJing all types of events and shows where his distinct, smooth mixing style is on display. Brian is deeply involved in the Burlington music scene and helps to curate events in the area such as the popular Waking Windows festival. Brian’s crowd reading skills and ability to keep the dance floor full all night makes him a very welcome addition to the team. You can catch Brian at some of his monthly residencies in the Burlington area at the Monkey House, the Half Lounge and Club Metronome.
“In order to strip out some of the usual business that slows down a party, we decided to think outside the box to find an accomplished club DJ for our wedding. We were looking for someone who knows what it takes to keep the floor flowing all night while making guests of all ages happy. The search led us to Wedding DJ VT, and we discussed our vision with Evan LeCompte who set us up with Brian Nagle. We could tell by his enthusiasm for the overall idea that we found the right guy! It all began with a timetable for the night and a massive shared spreadsheet to give him a sense of what we’re in to. We wanted to cover a wide range of genres and it was a great way to bounce ideas back and forth. He expertly ran with it by creating slick transitions, handling requests on the fly, and bringing a lot of his own fantastic ideas. The dancing was nonstop. For a little while, Brian made people forget they were at a wedding! So many of our guests commented on our amazing DJ. Even our aunts and uncles were on the floor until the end of the night, and we still have friends asking for our playlist!” – Ian & Cara, Grafton, VT October 2017
“From start to finish, Brian was professional and fun, the perfect DJ combination! He easily adapted to everything we asked for, providing a microphone for our ceremony, allowing our two guitarists to hook into his system for pre-ceremony music, and helping our videographer to capture the sounds of our day. Most of all, he listened to our requests for certain vibes during the cocktail hour, dinner and reception – and he hit every nail perfectly on the head. He was also a great sport – he read a funny script we provided him, helped one of our toast-givers hold up a prop, and put up with the groom’s mom’s request for “one last dance” at the end of the night. Want a sign of how detail-oriented Brian is? He fielded a request from some college friends who surprised us with a “flash mob”… and then instantly transitioned into the song that we had previously told him would get that same group of friends going on the dance floor. Brian really did his homework. We wanted a party, and Brian gave us a party. The dance floor literally buckled and tables jumped 2 inches off the floor during our reception due to all the dancing. We had to pay for a few broken glasses, but it was totally worth it!!” – The Dromgoole’s, Windsor, VT July 2017
“Brian was extremely professional and fun! He listened to everything we had asked for and then some. We had a very non-traditional wedding and he made sure to keep that in mind. My husband and I love a mixture of music genres from reggae to punk and he nailed the transitions perfectly. He also made sure that every age group felt included in the music. All 72 guests at our wedding were dancing, including my 92 year old grandmother! He even allowed my cousin who is a fellow DJ to jump in and do some scratching. We all had an absolute blast! He is efficient, very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommended Brian and Wedding DJ VT!” – The Jarvis’s, Shelburne, VT August 2017
Brian Nagle played our wedding and was fantastic. He provided great music and flow from pre-ceremony through the reception. He worked with us on our song list, added a lot of his own great tracks and kept the dance floor packed the whole evening. Highly recommended!” – Jed & Simone, Ohana Family Camp, Fairlee, VT May 2016
“Thank you Brian for mixing the perfect music set for our wedding. You were great to work with and I wish I could take you out for a beer to show my appreciation. Hope 2014 is a great year” – Tim
“Wow! I still feel like I dream to our wedding music playlist. Yes, I do the thriller in my sleep. It was a favorite by all but I loved the way you moved with the mood of the crowd. It was a magical night” – Maria
