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:
“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!”
