Chris Costello

Chris “Coz” Costello has been DJing in the Burlington area for the better part of 10 years. After a quick stint in NYC playing a handful of bar gigs, Chris is back in Vermont to continue playing weddings, parties and clubs. Chris has been a feature DJ at the annual Waking Windows music festival in Winooski, the quarterly Funky Town party at Arts Riot and Burlington’s Highlight NYE celebration. Chris prides himself on keeping the crowd engaged by playing accessible selections for diverse audiences, keeping the sound level at an ideal and appropriate level and providing a positive and professional demeanor before, during and after every event and wedding!


What people have to say about Chris:

“We were on a mission to find the perfect DJ for our wedding in Vermont, and were delighted to find just that in working with Chris Costello. Chris gets it. He understood our vision from our first phone call and made it an incredibly smooth process to collaborate on all of the musical components of our wedding. We were blown away by the detail he put into the music selections from cocktail hour all the way until the very last song. The dance floor was packed the entire night and every single guest mentioned to us how incredible the DJ was. My wife and I have already discussed trying to throw another party just for the sake of having Chris come DJ again! We would highly recommend Chris for anyone looking for a DJ for any type of event, he is the real deal!”

“When we started our initial planning process for our wedding, at times, it felt like we didn’t know where to start. When it came to asking Chris if he would be our DJ, it was likely the easiest decision we made. Chris was up front about his availability and was well organized. Chris conferenced with us on more than one occasion where we went over every detail about our wedding day schedule. We were made to feel that our needs and wants were prioritized every step of the way without making us feel pressured to have everything figured out. Chris supplied us with an intuitive worksheet which made it easy to communicate. Chris played all of the tracks we asked for, made timely announcements to our guests, and showed up hours ahead of time to set everything up. Chris even read the room perfectly throughout the night! We had many friends and family comment on how great the music was, truth be told, we couldn’t agree more!We would recommend Chris to anyone looking to have a courteous professional who will look after your best interests on your most special of days.”

“Anyone who’s spent time with me at a wedding knows I’m a big wedding DJ snob — I pick apart the song choices, the transitions, the timing. I sigh when the DJ isn’t reading the room, or when he’s just letting an iTunes playlist run with the crossfade option turned way up. So when it came to our own wedding, it was really important we found someone who was willing to work with all my particularities while also bringing their own identity and style to the party. We found all that and then some in Chris (aka DJ Coz) — he was so easy to work with, absolutely in tune with all our tastes and preferences, and brought a lot of excellent expertise to both the logistical and creative aspects of the job. As soon as we started talking to him about our vision for the wedding, any stress we had about DJs and dance floors dissipated entirely. He went above and beyond coordinating with our musicians, who played during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and some of the first dances. And when the dance floor finally opened, it was happening all night. Chris was so good at keeping his finger on the pulse of the party, playing crowd pleasers but also songs the crowd didn’t even know they wanted to hear. Every next song was both a delightful surprise and the perfect pick. We never wanted him to stop spinning!”

“Our favorite memories from our wedding day are from the dance floor, and Chris is to thank for that! My husband and I booked Chris for our August 2022 wedding at Trailside Inn in Killington, VT. He was so easy to work with and had everything we needed for an outdoor ceremony and reception. Chris read the room well and eased everyone onto the dance floor, making sure there was something for everyone. Our wedding was less than 100 people, however, the floor was packed and we wish we could have danced all night long. The ceremony music also played seamlessly, and he nailed all the transitions between songs. We didn’t have to think or worry about a thing. We cannot thank Chris enough for such a memorable and fun day!”

“Working with Chris for our wedding was a dream. We were sure we didn’t want a cheesy DJ setup as can sometimes be common with weddings, so we were thrilled when we found Chris, who has impeccable vibes. Chris was extremely attentive to our music requests for the wedding, and he was so communicative and warm. He made planning extremely easy for us, and we were able to be pretty hands off about the music knowing we were in good hands. Our guests of all ages loved his playlist and danced the night away. Chris was also super tuned in to the function of the wedding itself, working with our planner on coordinating speeches – we truly didn’t have to worry about anything. We really can’t say enough good things about working with Chis, and we can’t imagine trusting anyone else with our wedding music!”

“We not only rescheduled our wedding a few times but ended up planning our small garden wedding in a matter of a few weeks! Given the last minute planning, we scrambled to find vendors, and thankfully were introduced to Chris through a mutual friend. And let me tell you we were SO glad that did. Chris made our wedding experience so much more put together and thoughtful than we had expected. He blew us away, and exceeded our expectations! He covered all bases – through handling the set up with all the equipment in outdoor settings, he guided us through technical logistics and gave us tips from the ceremony to cocktail hour to reception to the speeches and to late night dancing! He took initiative to take over the minute details – like MCing the whole evening without us asking, that everyone in the crowd was able to hear the ceremony outdoors, making sure each speech was timed at the right moment and each individual was properly introduced, that the cocktail hour and reception were paired well with the timing of food service, and most importantly, that the mix of the crowd was vibing with the music throughout the evening – from traditional Polish music, to jazz and bossa nova, to more classic american, to R&B/Hip Hop and to dance music. No one was able to tell that we met only a few weeks prior to the wedding day and everyone commented on how the vibe of the music was perfect the whole evening! We would definitely hire Chris again if we throw a follow up party!”

“I can’t say enough good things about Chris. For us, music and dancing were some of the most important components of the wedding so we knew we needed to work with someone who understood our style and was willing to partner with us to create the perfect dance floor vibe. Chris was easy to communicate with leading up to the big day and while he has his own excellent musical taste, he was also super eager to hear our dos and don’ts to ensure that we were all on the same page. On the actual day, he followed our lead on preferences but also read the crowd and kept all generations grooving from start to finish. We even had a dream of a disco ball which he made come true as well as a non traditional first dance which he totally rolled with! Chris also helped handle the audio for the actual ceremony so smoothly which just took so much anxiety around the logistics off our plate. I can’t imagine having felt more comfortable or relaxed with any other DJ and wish we could do it all over again. Thank you, Chris!”

“My wife Lorena, and I loved working with Chris. Very professional, organized and creative. We had to replan our wedding in a matter of months due to Covid. We went from a large wedding with a full band to 45 people and ran with a small cocktail band and a DJ for dances and post dinner festivities. The turnaround time was short, Chris wasn’t worried. He had us compile our favorite songs in a playlist and he took it from there. From this he got a strong understanding of our tastes and put that to practice. I was concerned what a dance floor would look like at a small wedding, smaller pool of people – less people dancing I thought. I was wrong, the floor was full all night, and I owe a lot of that to Chris. He knows how to keep the energy balanced and build it up when it’s right, good commentary here and there was a welcome addition. From the moment he introduced Lorena and I as a married couple, to our last song of the night, flawless. Can’t recommend Chris “Coz” Costello enough.”

“Having Chris Costello DJ our wedding surpassed all of our expectations. He was so wonderful to work through the entire process. Our biggest goal for our reception was that the dance floor would be packed all night and it was! All of the different generations danced the night away. Chris had a way of reading the room and kept the party flowing at each stage of the night. We even asked the venue if we could pay for an extra hour at the end of the night because people were having so much fun dancing. Years later our friends and family still bring up how much fun they had dancing at our wedding. We could not have asked for a better DJ. We highly recommend Chris for anyone looking for a DJ, he was beyond amazing!”
