Testimonials:
duncan-and-kristen“Dan was absolutely astounding and exceptional at our wedding. He exceeded all of our expectations. We had an array of generations at our wedding, and every single one of those generations danced the night away. The dance floor was always full from the first song to the last, and Dan was always able to gauge and read the crowd to determine what to play, and when to play it. His own touch and spin on songs, along with the transitions between them were flawless. Dan was interactive with the crowd, but as also extremely professional; he even checked in with us (the bride and groom) if someone had requested a particular song, and how we would feel if he ended the night playing a certain song combination (which was amazing and a perfect way to end the night). We cannot say enough good things about him and his skills, and his ability to keep the part alive through out the night. The music and dancing was so much fun, that I literally danced to every single song. Literally. As the bride, I can certainly say that my wedding wouldn’t have been the perfect night that it was, if it wasn’t for Dan. Thank you so much to Dan and WeddingDjVermont. You made our day at 10, and a night we will never forget.” – Kristen and Duncan, Sugarbush Resort in Warren, VT June 2017


allison-and-nate“Dan was awesome! He totally rocked it! Very easy to work with, professional, knows music well, and did everything we requested perfectly. You can tell he’s very perceptive towards the crowd and the style of music they’re into at the moment. Perfect flow, good mix of old and new music that the whole crowd recognized and loved. He was also smart about song requests, and was able to make on-the-go changes per our requests. I could go on for a while saying nice things about Dan but the point is, he was spot-on and we’d recommend him in a heartbeat. Easily the best wedding DJ I’ve seen.” – Allison and Nate, Grafton, VT September 2017


Coleman“We could not have been any happier with our experience with DJ Dan and Wedding DJ VT. Of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, Dan Cahill was by far the simplest to work with, in terms of effort required on our part, and the results exceeded our expectations, more than any other vendor. Dan took into consideration our selections and preferences for each portion of the day (cocktail hour, dinner music, dancing) and ran with it. I received gushing compliments from friends and family of all ages – he truly kept all ages on the dance floor all night. In addition, Dan’s demeanor, manner of speaking, and general presence were exactly what we were looking for in a low key but still elegant Vermont affair – definitely no cheeseball DJ commentary or stealing the show here! Finally, we couldn’t have been happier with the value for the price in hiring Wedding DJ VT. The music and energy that Dan provided truly set the tone for an incredibly fun evening for my husband and me. Could not recommend any higher!” – Elizabeth and Mike, Quechee, VT October 2015


lisa-and-paul“Dan was absolutely incredible—the dance floor at our wedding was packed the ENTIRE night. I think all of our family and friends commented on how amazing our DJ was the next day. We booked Dan after a quick phone call chatting about what we were looking for and his DJ style, met him once before the big day to go over logistics and details, gave him a list of songs we wanted for the ceremony and a couple of songs we definitely didn’t want him to play. He took it from there and NAILED it. When Nanny Frieda wanted an old classic Italian song, and Dan wasn’t sure we wanted that kind of music, he asked if it was OK if he played it (of course) and looked it up on his phone for her. He blended oldies, 90’s music, hip-hop, house and everything in between for the most fun dance party I’ve ever been to. He was completely reliable and easy to get a hold of and I think everyone should book him to play their weddings if they want an EPIC dance party. We can’t recommend Dan enough. He’s the BEST!” – Lisa & Paul, Sugarbush Resort, Warren, VT August 2016


“Dan Cahill DJ’d our Vermont wedding on April 26th, 2014. From start to finish he was AMAZING to work with. When we had meetings with him over the phone prior to the wedding, it felt like we were talking to one of our friends. He 100% got the vibe we were going for. He went above and beyond to make this bride happy. This included ordering a vinyl record that had the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to. He even sent me text updates to let me know that the record (which he rush ordered for me, because I decided on the song last minute) came in on time. He did our entire ceremony on vinyl – it was incredible. All the songs we wanted him to play (both at the dinner and dancing reception) were played….and they were all across the board…he nailed it. On top of that, he is a SUPER cool guy that fit right in with our crowd. I would highly recommend him to anyone that loves music and wants that reflected on your special day, he represented our style perfectly. Thanks Dan!!!!” – Allison and Matt, Mountain Top Inn Chittenden, VT, April 2014


melissa-and-chris-5-16“Our DJ was Dan Cahill and he was so easy to work with. My husband and I kept in contact with him throughout the planning stages and provided him with a list of our eclectic taste in music. HE ROCKED IT!!! He arrived 2 hours early, was very professional, and provided microphone and speaker enhancement for our outdoor ceremony. In our cocktail hour he played a perfect mix to please guests of all ages and it was all on vinyl. The sound quality of the vinyl matched perfectly with the Vermont farm wedding. It was an extra touch that the guests (and bride and groom) LOVED! Then the real party started! The dance floor was packed all night, he read the crowd perfectly! I NEVER (not once) left the dance floor. My husband even danced a few times 🙂 Dan was a rockstar! Would highly recommend, he far exceeded our expectations! Guests continue to comment on how awesome he was!” – Melissa & Christopher, Riverside Farm, Pittsfield, VT May 2016


“Dan was all around awesome. The booking process (through Evan @ Wedding DJ VT) was quick, easy, and fun. The communication between Dan and us during the lead up to the wedding could not have been better. He had no problem accommodating all of our song requests and coordinating the do not play list. We had the whole thing taken care of within the space of a few emails and two phone calls. Our reception was in the tent at Trapp Family Lodge. The music Dan played for the dinner and pre-dancing section was perfect. We gave him a vague description of what we were looking for and he nailed it. When time came for the introductions and dances he was the perfect emcee. Just the right mix of everything. The dance portion of the night included all the songs we wanted played along with refraining from the ones we didn’t. He uses a lot of records and mixes them very well. The transitions between songs were excellent. He is very creative and a very talented DJ. Some of the other reviews mentioned that the people at Wedding DJ VT were real music lovers and I could not agree more, I think that makes a huge difference when choosing a DJ. After the speeches the guests were dancing all night. He read the room very well and had an uncanny ability to get everyone on the floor dancing. We received numerous compliments from guests about how great they thought the music was. Dan was super awesome and we would highly recommend him for any occasion.” – Laura & Curtis, Trapp Family Lodge, Stowe, VT June 2016


“Reception music is one of the most important parts of any wedding and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our DJ Dan Cahill as well as the entire experience with Wedding DJ VT. There are so many cheesy DJs in shiny vests out there, and if you’d like to avoid that at all costs, then these are your guys. Dan is a true professional who obviously loves music, knows how to read a room, and kept our dance floor packed all night. He listens to your requests, but also knows exactly how to keep the mood of the party going. Dan’s presence was perfect for our Vermont wedding – he was just the right amount of easygoing while obviously putting a lot of energy into his work. We would not hesitate to recommend Dan to anyone looking for a DJ!” – Marsha and Justin, Mount Snow Resort, West Dover, VT August 2016


Gelman 2“Dan was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process and did a phenomenal job during the wedding. He made himself available in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding to get to know us and talk about what we wanted (or didn’t want). He was also super flexible and accommodating when it came to arranging music for the wedding ceremony and the last minute uncertainty about whether or not or ceremony would be forced inside with the rain. Bottom line is that he totally nailed our vibe and did an amazing job. We can’t say enough nice things about him and unreservedly endorse him for anyone considering having Dan DJ their wedding.” -Allison and David, Topnotch Resort, Stowe, August 2015


“We were lucky enough to have Dan as our wedding DJ. Dan was a consummate professional who surpassed our expectations. He played to every element of the party, whether it be background music, slow songs, deep into the party dance music, young, mid-aged, and old. Dan got the dance floor bumping early and kept it packed all night. It didn’t matter what your taste, age, or personality was…odds are you were dancing. He was also able to fit some requests without impacting the flow of the party. After attending many weddings over the years it is safe to say that Dan was one of the best, and that’s not just because it was our wedding…it’s the truth.” – Jared and Caitlin, All Souls Gathering, Shelburne, VT August 2014


From start to finish, Evan & Dan were extremely helpful and accommodating. It was clear that their goal was to provide a service that catered to our musical needs and they allowed us to be involved as much as we wanted. Dan, our DJ, always was there when we needed him leading up to the wedding. The day of the event was a dream, everything went exactly how we hoped and the wedding party got after it on the dance floor!” – The Stagnitti’s, Boyden Valley Farms, September 2014


“We had such a great experience with Dan. Dan really listened to what we liked and built the perfect playlist for us. Throughout the night, Dan played the perfect mix to balance our tastes and keep everyone dancing all night long. Everyone commented on the fantastic music and the great flow of the evening. Dan was also just really great to work with – accessible, friendly, and responsive. We could not have asked for a better DJ and would highly recommend him!” – Laura and Ray, The Old Lantern Charlotte VT, August 2013


” Dan was great to work with and we clicked from the very beginning! We organized our wedding from Philadelphia and he was readily accessible through email and was very flexible in terms of meeting times. Our wedding was amazing and the music set the perfect tone- from classic jazz tunes on a turntable for cocktail hour, to exactly the right timing for our ceremony music to keeping the dance floor hoppin’, I felt like I was in a movie with a great soundtrack.”
– Erica and Jay, ECHO Center, Burlington, August 2012


“Having seen Dan DJ a wedding while we lived in Vermont, we knew it was the right choice to have him come west to the Rocky Mountains to DJ our special day. Dan was fantastic to work with and we were able to do most of our planning over email. He brought creative playlists that set the tone for our reception and happy hour and kept the mood right during dinner. But let’s be honest, we were there to dance and that is when Dan’s work really shined through. He knew how to read the crowd to keep all the generations on the dance floor all night. He was extremely professional to work with and most importantly gave us exactly what we wanted while adding in his own creative touch. We would highly recommend Dan for your wedding or any event that needs to be livened up a bit!!” – Addie and Sean, Eagle, CO July 2013


“Dan Cahill spun the perfect party. Ours is a family of musicians, dancers, and music aficionados so I recommend taking this testimonial seriously. Before choosing a DJ, my wife and I had intense conversations about how we wanted the flow and structure of our reception music. For a sense of how serious (ridiculous) we are, we actually interviewed Cahill over Skype and asked for his vision. He explained almost verbatim what we had discussed — smooth transitions through recent decades to satisfy the older guests earlier on, and end with the perfect synthesis of pop, classic sing-along, and off-pop gold. His beat matching was clean. He also tactfully navigated our requests (demands) while giving ultimate attention to what would make the best party. He understood exactly what we wanted. He worked with our live musicians (who did a couple songs) to make sure their needs were met. Finally, it doesn’t hurt that he was a perfect gentleman to even the rowdiest of our guests, and he loaded in and out soundlessly. There is NO question in our minds that he can throw the exact party that will make your wedding perfect. In fact, please invite us to your wedding so we can relive ours through Dan.”Brendan and Tally, All Souls Gathering, Shelburne, VT September 2013


“We hired Dan from Wedding DJ VT at the suggestion of a local photographer, and could not have been more thrilled with how things went. Evan owns the company and was very easy to work with, and prices are quite reasonable. Dan DJ’d both our ceremony and our wedding and people continue to tell me how amazing the music was! He totally made the wedding. He listened to what we wanted and followed it perfectly. He totally understands how to read a crowd. People at our wedding started dancing before dinner, through dinner and never stopped. I’ve never seen so much dancing at a wedding! I highly, highly, highly recommend Weddingdjvt, especially if you want a non-cheesy, professional DJ.”
– Abby and Chuck Lamstein, Woodstock Inn Woodstock, VT June, 2013


“Our wedding day went by in a happy blur, but I do remember everyone dancing until the very end and not stopping for a break! Dan provided great, professional, smooth DJing all night. He did such a wonderful job. THANK YOU!!”
– Julie and Rob, Shelburne Farms, July 2012


“Dan was a true professional. Working with him was beyond easy. Dan read the crowd well and played great music all night.”  – Jen Whalen, President of Vermont Children’s Trust Foundation, VCTF Fundraiser March 2012
