20150704-Lee-Jeff-Dancing“Evan is a musical wizard. From our first meeting, he embraced the spirit of our wedding. He provided suggestions when asked and knew exactly how to respond to the vibe of our guests. His song selections simultaneously appealed to all ages and stages, and he enlivened the party like nothing else. Evan was reliable and prompt and provided extras like a wireless microphone for our minister. During our cocktail hour, he spun records. My 79-year-young family friend declared with a beaming smile, “Now THIS was a great record!” After the first course, Evan put on “Just the Two of Us” by Bill Withers. My mom asked me to dance. Few people in the room understood what the song meant to us. My dad passed away suddenly when I was 16, and as an only child, my mom and I relied on each other, as difficult as that was. “Just the two of us, we can make it if we try, just the two of us, you and I.” Little did we know, we would set off a pre-main-course dance party with about ten other couples joining the floor on the next song! After the main course, there was no question what came next: DANCE PARTY. Everyone could hardly wait. Family members who hadn’t danced in years and who previously told us they “weren’t dancers and didn’t have dancing at their wedding” were on their feet nearly the whole time. One even lead a conga line! A good friend of ours who is a wedding connoisseur, averaging about five weddings a year, said ours was tied for first in his book. His prime criterion is flow, in which the right DJ and music play an essential, major role. Our friend had so much fun dancing that he sweated through his undershirt and dress shirt and had to use a tablecloth edge to wipe his brow, as the napkins had all been cleared with the dinner service! Other guests remarked that ours was the best wedding they had ever been to and that it would be hard to top. Our wedding was the best day of my and my husband’s lives. We will cherish the unforgettable memories our whole lifetimes. Thank you, Evan, for making our dream a reality.” – Jeff and Lee, The Inn at the Round Barn Farm July 4th, 2015


mike-and-jenna-5-16“We could not have asked for a better DJ to play at our wedding than Evan. From the start of working/planning with him he was the utmost professional and very well put together. His insight in the industry is easy to pick up on and he makes it clear that he has a passion for this and it’s not just something he does on the side. We never felt in any way that we couldn’t trust Evan in any suggestion that he had and he was incredibly easy going and respectful with all of our requests. When we booked Evan we were very relieved to know that wedding DJ’s do exist that refuse to play the gimmicky group dance songs and will let you have a say on what the music genre will be. We had a few quick phone call sessions in the beginning just to get aligned with expectations and he was very easy to talk to and brainstorm with AND he has a great way of getting you really excited for your wedding dance party ahead. He was so great with not being overbearing with upfront questions and details (that nobody knows until the last month of planning) but still gathered all of the information he needed from us… because he’s that good. It was a sad moment for us all when the last song came on to end our wedding night because he had turned the party up to such an epic level that no one was ready to stop. 5 stars in no way is enough for Evan’s review! He is a vendor that I would recommend to anyone if they want to have a great wedding. He will get the entire place to dance and live it up.” – Mike & Jenna, Dorset Inn, Dorset, VT May 2016


“My fiance and I first saw Evan in action at a relative’s wedding in 2013. Since then, we kept Evan and Wedding DJ VT in the back of our minds. Once it came time to plan our own wedding, we reached out to Evan, and it was one of THE BEST decisions we made during the wedding planning process. Evan was professional with reasonable rates, and top notch service. He is incredibly talented with the ability to read the crowd on the dance floor, and pick songs to keep them there all night long. On our wedding day, a microburst blew through the Quechee, VT area, knocking out power to many hotels, restaurants and businesses. As my husband and I arrived to our reception, we were informed the venue had lost partial power. My first concern was, “Can we still dance?” Thankfully, the power outage did not affect Evan’s ability to DJ the reception, and we began our first evening as husband and wife dancing the night away. Thank you so much, Evan for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!!” – Jason and Mary Anne, Quechee Country Club, Quechee, VT July 2016


“Evan did such an AMAZING job DJing our wedding! We really couldn’t be happier with how the day went. Choosing between a DJ or a live band was a decision we went back and forth on for a while, and we are so glad we chose him. Having good music was really important to us, and Evan did such a great job playing to the crowd while at the same time sticking to the music genre we wanted for our wedding. Evan kept it fun and high energy for over 8 hours and seemed to always play the right song at the right moment. We distinctly remember the smiles and surprises on our guests’ faces when different songs they loved would start playing. It’s been a few months since our wedding and our guests are still boasting about how good the music was. Evan is laid back and ensured everything went really smoothly. He fit right in at our wedding, it felt like he was part of the family. The whole experience made us want to start throwing more parties with him. Evan – Thank you, thank you! You are the man and really great at what you do. You made our day full of happy memories with an excellent soundtrack. P.S. Playing Purple Rain as the last song – genius!!” – John and Rachael, Bristol, NH June 2016


“Evan at Wedding DJ VT was instrumental to our making wedding day, and particularly the reception, a huge success and unforgettable time. We are so happy we chose Evan to DJ our wedding. He was also very helpful in other elements of the day, such as helping get folks mic’d for the ceremony, spinning some casual but excellent records for the cocktail hour and of course keeping the evening festivities. Throughout the entire process Evan was helpful and accommodating, and in addition to playing most if not all of our requests, he did an AMAZING job mixing in his own picks that worked perfectly with our initial song request list. The dancing was virtually non-stop (With the exception of bride+father and groom+mother dances, cake cutting and speeches etc). We were so impressed (but not suprised!) at how Evan chose many songs that weren’t in our intial list that we totally would have included. But we’re glad we limited our requests so as to let Evan bring his creativity and expertise to the table…the turntable that is! If you want the deep cuts, Evan will find them. If you want something else, he is more than capable of handling anything you throw at him. For music lovers and people who are very selective about their music, Evan is very understanding and appreciative of what music will make your day. And his DJ performance certainly made ours.” – Mike and Lauren, Mountain Top Inn, Chittenden, VT August 2016


Makinde-and-Awara-2“Evan helped make our wedding reception absolutely amazing. We first got to know Evan because he played at a wedding we attended a wedding last year. That was a wedding between an Indian and an American family. He did such a good job mixing the music from the different cultures, we thought he’d be a great fit for our wedding (Nigerian & Cape Verdean families, American friends). Leading up to the wedding, Evan was super easy to work with. I sent him about 5 songs from some modern Nigerian and Cape Verdean artists, and he took it from there. On the big day hey did the mics and music for the ceremony. This included some prearranged tracks, a lapel mic for the officiant (which picked up the bride and groom really well), and a standing mic for the readings. He was at the ceremony controlling to volume of the sound so that everyone could hear. We’ve been to a lot of weddings where the audience can’t hear what’s going on. That was a non-issue for us. Evan controlled it perfectly and we could focus on having an awesome day. He had nice and chill music during cocktail hour and dinner. Again, we have him a 10 second description of what we wanted and he nailed it. He even coordinated music for my wife’s sister’s toast…a complete surprise to her. Our MC, a friend of ours, did the MC work for the evening. She got a wireless mic from Evan and everything came out well. All that said, the most amazing part of the night was once everyone got on the dance floor. Evan hit it out of the park. Our guests were going non-stop. He read the crowd and made sure he mixed a lot of different music in, never letting the energy drop. The staff at the wedding was dancing behind the scenes. No joke, the staff came up to us at the end of the night and said it was the most exciting dancing and music they’d seen at a wedding at that venue. There’s simple nothing more we could have asked for from Evan. 6 stars.” – Makinde and Awara, Newport, RI August 2015


“Evan was an absolute pleasure to work with and did an amazing job at our wedding. His knowledge of music and weddings put us at ease from the beginning and not having to think about creating a music list or specifying any type of music we liked was one less thing to worry about. He judged our crowd and did what he does best, play music everyone loves. From the records he played at the cocktail hour to the selection of songs he played throughout the night, he set the scene for our wedding and had everyone on the dance floor. Each song flowed seamlessly into the next and our guests all said how they didn’t want to leave the dance floor because the great music just kept coming. We could not be more pleased with the job that Evan did DJing our wedding and we would highly recommend him and his company, you will not be disappointed!” – Kayla & Sean, Blue Mountain Lake, NY, July 2014


Audra and Bryan“From the beginning, Evan was a complete delight to work with! So easy-going, flexible, and fun. He has a great ability to read the wedding crowd well and knew exactly what music to play to make people want to dance all night. We had so many guests say that the music was so fun, such a great blend of oldies and new tunes that made for such an incredible night! I would highly recommend using him for any event. Thank you so much Evan for making our wedding one to remember!” – Audra and Bryan, The Lang Barn Essex, VT June 2015


“I knew when I talked to Evan on the phone for the first time that he was the right DJ for our wedding. I couldn’t wait for my fiancé to talk to him. Evan was laid back but professional and answered every question we had. He was open to our ideas but also had great ideas of his own for our reception. He was open to us selecting all of the music, him selecting all of the music or a combination of the two. He supplied all the sound equipment we needed for our ceremony and we loved the jazz records at the cocktail hour. When it was time for the reception, he knew exactly what music to play to get everyone dancing, from my 80 year old nana to my 5 year old nephew! We only requested that one song be played during the reception and left the rest of the selections up to Evan’s choice and we are beyond happy that we did. So many of our guests told us how great and perfect they thought the music was. One of our guests told me: “Your DJ played the best music I have ever heard at a wedding!” Needless to say everyone, including me and my husband had a great time dancing all night to Evan’s music selection. He isn’t one of those DJs who just presses play on an iPod, either. He was constantly on his turn tables making sure the sound was perfect and it allowed him to utilize his unique talents. We would not hesitate to recommend Evan to any of our friends!” – Becca and Andy, Aimee Farm Pittsfield, VT, August 2014


“Evan is a top shelf DJ. From start to finish he was able to answer our questions, provide suggestions, and accommodate our many requests. He was spot on with our music taste and had a magical power of keeping our guests on the dance floor. Evan is a genuine and kind soul, even asking my 91 year-old Grandma if she would like to hear any requests; Frank Sinatra of course! We danced into the night under a white tent to the talented beats of Evan. He does not disappoint, who only exceeds expectations.” – Lindsey and Matthew Norton, Brownsville, Vermont, September 2014


“After doing a little online research and reading all of the amazing testimonials on their website, we asked Evan to DJ our 2014 summer wedding for both the ceremony and reception. We picked a few songs for Evan to play at certain times (ceremony, first dance, etc.), but left the music choices mostly up to him. Not only did he help give us great ideas for those special moments, he picked the PERFECT mix of music for the remainder of our day and evening. Evan connected with everyone on the dance floor and really helped to get everyone on their feet quickly! He was able to choose music that pleased our older guests, younger guests, and youngest guests. We would recommend Evan for ANY event. Thank you SO SO much for making our day so wonderful, and for figuring us out so easily!” – Jenna and Mark, Lareau Farm Waitsfield, VT, July 2014


We asked Evan to do some pretty outside-the-box stuff for our Halloween wedding, and he didn’t bat an eye. Based on just a few suggestions, he crafted a long and creative playlist that perfectly suited the vibe of our spooky cocktail hour. I was particularly impressed by his willingness to embrace the challenge: he understood our unique vision, and was able to enhance it with his own ideas. Evan is definitely an awesome collaborator, but what makes him truly special are his legit club DJ skills. After dinner, we wanted someone who could transform our reception into a contemporary dance club. Not many wedding DJs have the talent or equipment to make that happen, so Evan was a miraculous find in Vermont. He spun a seamless set of modern dance music that escalated in intensity until the entire barn was shaking. He may actually have inspired my mom to attend a rave. In true Halloween spirit, Evan came dressed as a banana; we knew he’d been a hit when the crowd started chanting “BA-NA-NA, BA-NA-NA!” at the end of his set. He was that good. – Nathaniel and Chelsey, The Round Barn, Waitsfield, VT, October 31st 2014


“The wedding was everything we both hoped it could be. All of our guests young and old wanted to know who that DJ was and how he was so good?! You had people that don’t dance on the dance floor, and you had people recovering from broken hip/surgery dancing. It was an incredibly fun evening and thinking about it now I just want to do it again!” – Pete and Celia, Saranac Lake, NY, August 2013


Jon-Liz“Evan was by far the best choice we could have made. Seriously, he was everything we could have hoped for in a DJ and more. I should be clear about what we wanted though. In no way did we want a DJ that would bring props, play games, yell into the mic to get you on the dancefloor, or be cheesy in any way. We wanted someone that played the music we liked, could handle intro’s and announcements and would keep people on the dancefloor. THIS WAS EVAN! He’s so amazing. We had people come up to us during dinner to say how great he was already. And my boss complimented me and said “I have never been to a wedding where everyone was dancing the entire night”. Evan’s gift is that he can play the music that everyone seems to like. This is not an easy task. If you are looking for a DJ like we were, Evan is your man!” – Liz and Jon, The Old Latern, Charlotte, November 2012


Ali-and-Josh-Dancing-testimonial“Our biggest wedding-day fear was that our reception would be boring and that no one would dance. After meeting Evan for coffee to discuss details, we knew we’d made a great choice. He was friendly and reassuring, and we felt that he really understood what we were looking for. At the reception, Evan absolutely nailed it. The dance floor was packed from the beginning of the night to the end. The song selections were exactly what we wanted—a mix of modern and old hits and some more eclectic tracks, and none of those tacky choreographed dance songs. Guests came up to us all night raving about Evan and his music. He was an integral part of our incredible reception, and we highly, highly recommend him.” -Ali and Josh Parent, The Inn at Essex, September 2012


“Evan was exactly what we were looking for when picking a DJ for our wedding. We wanted a DJ with turntables who could mix a wide variety of music, do formal introductions, and keep our guests dancing all night. He by far surpassed our expectations! We had the best time; the songs flowed seamlessly from one to another, everyone danced all night! Since the wedding we have received so many compliments from our guest’s both young and old saying that our DJ was the best they have heard at a wedding. We are looking forward to the next family wedding, where we can hopefully hire Evan to DJ!” – Tim & Sarah Latchford, Lake Placid Country Club, Lake Placid, NY September 2012


Miles-and-Amy“Everyone at our wedding commented at one point or another about how amazing the DJ was. We met him once before the wedding to talk about what we were looking for, but he really seemed to read us beyond what we told him at that first encounter because he knew exactly what to play the entire night. The music flowed perfectly from fun Cuban jazz during the beginning of the reception right into dancing music that got everyone out of their seats and onto the floor. Every age group was dancing and having a really great time – it is really amazing that Evan can do this and make it seem so easy! What really impressed us, though, was his calm and organized nature that helped during the final planning stages to incorporate a perfectly-timed track in our first dance as well as an instrumental track that our friend sang along to. It was a completely perfect experience in every sense. Thank you Evan!” – Miles and Amy, West Monitor Barn, Richmond, VT July 2012


“Working with Evan was fantastic from beginning to end. He had the dance floor full all evening, every song transition was seamless and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. My husband and I don’t go dancing very often and so did not have many songs on our “must play” list but we loved Evans choices and so did our guests. He made the organization and whole day completely stress-free which is what every bride and groom wants on their wedding day. He provided wireless microphones for the speeches so we had one less thing to organize and he provided tasteful background music during dinner. We cannot think of a single thing he could have improved upon. His prices were extremely competitive and we felt like he earned every penny and more. I would not hesitate to recommend Evan to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding.” – Aoife and Tom, Grand Isle Lake House, Grand Isle, VT June 2012


“Evan was fantastic. He communicated with us throughout the process and took the time to understand what we were looking for. The day of the event, Evan quietly took care of all of his responsibilities with care and attention to detail. Our reception had so many people on their feet dancing! Evan is professional and puts a focus on the music and not himself. We recommend him highly!” – Sarah and Owen, Boyden Farms, Cambridge, July 2012


“Our wedding day was everything we could have asked for and was made even better by the music. Every one of our guest was talking about our DJ from the cocktail hour all the way through the night and even to this day. Every music selection just kept our guests out on the dance floor and the party rockin! From our first meeting with Evan all the way through our big day he showed enthusiasm and made the experience feel unique to us. Thanks for making our day special!” – Kristen and Adam, Shelburne Farms, September, 2011


“Just when I thought my wedding day couldn’t get anymore perfect…the music began. I’m a professional musician, so as you can imagine, the word picky doesn’t really do my personality justice.  Evan sat with me months before the big day and allowed me to hand select each song. He then drove three hours to get to our venue, set up, and proceeded to rock our world with some of the most current, old school, and spot-on dance tunes we could have ever hoped for. The best part? He seemed to really be having fun while doing it.  It was the best day/night of my life and I can’t imagine doing it without him there.” – Myra Flynn, www.myraflynn.com Springfield, August 2010


“Thank you so very much for being a part of our wedding. Not only are you an amazing guy who we love but you rocked like no one else could. Everyone loved your sets, young and old. Seriously, you wouldn’t believe the amount of folks who commented on how great you were. You were the best! Thank you!” – Erin and Carlton, ECHO Center, Burlington, October 2011


“WOW! Not only did Evan keep the dance floor full for our entire reception but he travelled through hurricane Irene to DJ our wedding. He was armed with vinyl and a battery powered speaker – just incase the power went out! Evan was great to work with and very responsive. He has a passion for music and it shows! Our guests are still taking about how great the music was and how sore their legs were from dancing all night!” – Jay and Jill, Sugarbush, August 2011


“We chose Evan as our wedding DJ after hearing him at RJs in Burlington. He was awesome to work with and did an amazing job! We gave him a list of a few songs we wanted to hear and then asked him to just feel out the crowd and play what he thought people would enjoy. We have had multiple people tell us that our wedding was one of the funnest they have been to, mainly due to the music and dancing. He kept everyone dancing with his high energy and great choice of songs! We would recommend Evan to anyone looking for a wedding DJ.” – Molly and Cody, Old Lantern, Charlotte, September 2011


“Evan was an awesome wedding DJ! He had the perfect dance mix to get the crowd going and kept everyone dancing. Even family/friends that said they “didn’t dance” got onto the dance floor. Everyone was on the dance floor until Evan left! Everyone complimented us on how much they enjoyed the music and reception! Thanks Evan!” – Ben and Allison, Catamount Country Club, Williston, August 2011


“Evan was the best! He worked with us to blend many kinds of music for our Latin and multicultural crowd, that made the night. Our non-latin friends loved the music mix, and our latin friends, loved seeing a (non-latin) DJ great at mixing in some latin tunes. After speaking with a few DJ’s in VT who weren’t sure how to respond when we asked if they were OK with playing Latin music, Evan was open and eager to discuss all kinds of styles, and made it so fun. He was a pleasure to work with, and even better to dance to! We had so much fun that we (and so many of our guests) never got off the dance floor.” – Heather and Miquel, Castle Hill House, Ludlow, September 2011


“Evan is a fantastic DJ. Everyone said we had the best wedding they’ve ever been to (we still get regular comments,) and it was in no small part due to Evan’s ability to get guests of all ages dancing. He kept the party jumping, we had to kick everyone out at the end because they were all still on the dance floor! I especially appreciated that he was able to help us with song selection for the ceremony to make it uniquely ours.” – Nick and Gina, Narragansett, RI, April 2010


“Evan kept the party rocking for the entire night and played a mix of hits that had my Grandma dancing with my best man. I sent Evan a list of songs I wanted to hear, he kept them rocking non-stop all night. Evan showed a polished balance of party DJ and eloquent master of ceremonies. Jay-Z to Journey, Bon Jovi to BB King, Evan knows how to keep the crowd on the dance floor. Like a perfect mixtape, Evan knew exactly what to play and when to play it. He comes highly recommended.” – Peter and Katie, Stowe, May 2008


“There were two things that mattered to my husband and I while planning our big day, our food and music. It didn’t take long to figure out Evan was the DJ we had to have, and after meeting with him in person, I immediately knew the choice we made was perfect. Evan played everything the guests and us wanted to hear… there was never a dull moment on the dance floor. Three months later, guests still come up to us and tell us how great our DJ was while still in shock at how long into the night he went. Evan rocked it… None of us wanted him to leave (well except the exhausted bride)… heck I don’t even think he wanted to go home! Evan, THANK YOU… you will be, and already have been, a huge recommendation from me to anyone who is looking for a DJ.” – Melissa & Joe, Tunbridge Fairgrounds, August 2011


“The wedding was awesome. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. You did an amazing job DJing. Having a Dj that still spins vinyl is what we were looking for and my friends thought that was a nice personal touch. The music section was perfect. Thanks for catering to all my request. We wanted you to play all night. As they say time flies when your having fun. Samantha and I would recommend you to anyone who’s looking for a real DJ. Can’t thank you enough.” – Samantha and Matthew, Edson Hill Manor, Stowe, September 2009


“We selected Evan as our DJ for our 2011 wedding for both the ceremony and reception. We requested a few songs (ceremony music, first dance, mother son dance, father daughter ect..). Aside from our few requested songs Evan played a masterful mix of hits and did it flawlessly. He was able to connect with our guests and get everyone on the dance floor. We had a diverse group of guests from young to old and Evan played music that was very appropriate to get everyone involved. We absolutely recommend Evan as a professional DJ for any event. Thank you for helping us make our day very special!” – Christian and Brooke, Keene Country Club, Keene, NH, July 2011


“We were most impressed with Evan’s abilities and skills as a DJ.  He worked with us to create a music program that catered to our specific tastes.  The dinner portion of the night was a perfect mix.  As for the dance music…the dance floor was packed from the moment the music started.  It was obvious that all of our guests enjoyed themselves, including the DJ! Thanks for a great night!” – Michelle and Peter, Killington Resort, September 2010


“Evan was a pleasure to work with, and the perfect DJ for us. We gave him a challenge he’d never taken on before (spinning bhangra music), which he mastered with aplomb & wove seamlessly into the hip-hop, jazz, soul and funk we requested as well. People didn’t want to stop dancing, and all our friends and family (which includes a lot of musicians and aficionados) were impressed, and had a fantastic time.” – Athena and Chris, Mountain Top Inn, Chittenden, August 2009


“Evan kept the party going all night with seamless transitions and music for all ages to dance. He was really great about meshing different genres with the songs we picked out into the whole reception. You can’t go wrong with Evan!” – Robin and Ryan (or the Farritts), Quarry Hill Club, July 2010


“We were so happy to have Evan as our wedding DJ! Angie and I had experienced his talent on two other occasions. Three years ago we were aboard a ferry cruise as we celebrated a friend’s birthday, dancing into the night. Last year, at the wedding reception of two friends, we were treated to another great night of music by Evan. When it came time for us to plan our wedding the only question was if Evan would be available. It was a pleasure working with Evan during the whole process. In the weeks leading up to the wedding he helped to locate those important songs for the first dances and worked with us to plan a great selection of music throughout the night. From some light dinner music during dinner to an eclectic mix of dance music that had all our guests dancing Evan helped to make our special day into a wonderful memory.” – Gavin and Angie, Colchester, August 2010


“BEST wedding DJ ever! Thanks for the beats. You were such an important piece of our wedding puzzle. My friends and fam loved you too…We got sooo many compliments” – Becky and Ben, Middlebury, September 2010
