“Working with Dan and Wedding DJ VT couldn’t have been better. He was very responsive and professional throughout the process but also very easy-going. After meeting with Dan once he gave us complete confidence that we’d be taken care of. We wanted to blend music from a bunch of different genres and eras- dance hall, funk, R&B, classic hip hop, new pop/top 40, classic rock- and Dan completely nailed it. He read the crowd wonderfully and at every stage of our wedding- from cocktails to dinner to dancing to late night- he set the perfect vibe. I would recommend Dan to anyone. He’s creative, super nice, takes pride in smooth song-to-song transitions/blends, and- most importantly- IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL CHEESY WEDDING DJ. Our guests danced their butts off and pretty much all told me the same thing at the end of the night- “That DJ crushed it!” One of the highlights for everyone was when a spontaneous field rave party broke out. People grabbed sparklers and glow stick necklaces and just started dancing around in the grass outside of the tent under the stars. Even though the dance floor cleared, Dan just went with it and kept rocking even though he couldn’t really see us. We were loving it! We’ll remember that moment for the rest of our lives and it couldn’t have happened without Dan on the wheels.” – Ryan and Molly, Grand Isle, VT June 2015
“Dan Arlein recently DJ’ed my wedding and he was absolutely FANTASTIC!! Seriously, we could not have been happier. He was so easy to work with and made us feel very confident in his skills and understanding of what we wanted right from the get-go. Throughout the whole process he was incredibly responsive and detail oriented. He gave us great suggestions that met our unique needs and also helped the wedding day flow. Dan was professional, flexible, experienced, and most importantly, FUN! So many of our guests commented on how amazing the dance party was. He truly had every single guest dancing for most of the reception! His song selections were so on point and the transitions were seamless. Our feet hurt for days afterward from all the dancing. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a high quality, fun DJ who keeps the party going. You will not be disappointed!” – Lauren and Jared, Edson Hill Manor Stowe, VT, July 2014
“Michele and I made the perfect decision to choose Wedding DJ VT for our Wedding. We got married September 20th of 2014 in Barnard, Vermont with 100 of our closest friends and family in attendance. We knew our guests were a fun crowd, so we wanted to make sure we had great music to make the night an unforgettable one. Dan, our DJ, did not disappoint, and our reception party exceeded our expectations. The dance floor was loaded all night, people were drenched in sweat, and voices were coarse from singing and yelling so much. Our pictures don’t lie. Not only did Dan impress our guests with his ability to work the dance floor, he was spot on with the ceremony music. His cocktail hour selection of 50’s and 60’s classics also set the tone and put everybody in the right mood. All around, Dan did a tremendous job. Overall, Evan and Dan were a pleasure to work with. Dan was very accommodating to our specific tastes, making sure to play most of the songs we requested. Both communicated well, demonstrated professionalism, and provided Michele and I the ease of service that we needed, all while fitting our budget. At the end of the day, we were very happy and really enjoyed our experience working with Dan and Evan, both leading up to and during the wedding day. I would recommend Evan, Dan, and Wedding DJ VT to anyone, based on the high level of satisfaction we had and the positive praises received from our guests. Thank you for contributing to our most memorable day!” – Charles and Michele, Barnard, VT, September 2014
“Dan Arlein was our wedding DJ, and we could not be happier with the work he did. A few weeks before our wedding, we sent Dan a list of songs we wanted to hear. He made sure all of our “must-haves” made it into rotation – and our guests were dancing even before the main course was served. Dan kept the party going all night, and our all-ages crowd universally agreed that his selections and mixing were superb. Thanks, Dan! – Steve and Emma, Round Barn Inn, Waitsfield, VT September 2013
“Dan DJ’d our wedding in Upstate Vermont in August of 2013 and we could not have been happier with the outcome. From the first discussions we had to the final hugs at the end of the night, he was an absolute pleasure to work with, and a real pro. He listened to us throughout the process, and made sure we got exactly what we wanted when everything was said and done. Our wedding guests all said they thought it was the best dance party they’d ever been to at a wedding. Dan was fun, upbeat and calm throughout, effortlessly handling not only the music at the reception, but also the processional, recessional, cocktail hour music and the various announcements throughout the night. I simply could not recommend Dan more highly, as he is exactly what you want when you hire a wedding DJ: A guy who knows music, knows people, is professional, flexible and incredibly capable. A real pro and a really nice guy, too! Thanks again, Dan!” – Will and Erica, Johnson, VT August 2013
“Dan MADE our wedding! Right from the beginning he was a huge help. We are by no means music geeks, but Dan was able to hone in on our tastes and plan some great tracks that all three generations at the party loved. He was very professional on the day of and ran a tight ship throughout the announcements, speeches and cocktail hour. When it came time to dance he had people out of their seats and on the dance floor till the venue manager pulled the plug. We could have danced all night. I would recommend Dan for anyone looking to have a great time at their wedding. He is easy to work with receptive and really knows how to work a crowd.” – Ben Cavell & Emily Scaife, Brooklyn, NY July 2012
“We hired Dan Arlein to DJ our wedding on June 3rd 2012. He did an excellent job and was very professional and punctual. He played a wide variety of music that kept the dance floor moving all night. Dan did a great job with the wedding party introductions and handled all the announcements throughout the reception. Dan met with us prior to the wedding to discuss our taste in music, specific requests for songs, and the schedule of the reception. He worked with us to get everything just the way we envisioned and everything turned out perfectly. We highly recommend Dan’s services to anyone planning a wedding or any other type of party.”
