Wow. I feel like we lucked out so much finding Dan Quinn. From the early stages of planning, Dan showed great interest in learning not only our musical tastes and desired party flow and vibe; but he also spent time exploring any tricky family dynamics, asking who we wanted to show extra love to, really thinking through EVERY DETAIL of our whole event to give us creative ideas and opportunities to personalize it and make things pop for our guests. It was incredible and the end result during our wedding was magical. He nailed the acoustic portion for our ceremony, even learning and adapting a special song for us. It was so beautiful I almost burst into tears walking down the aisle, and I am not a crier. The cocktail hour music was the perfect blend of sentimental and lively. During our reception, he mentioned so many funny and personal things as he perfectly guided our guests through each transition - the party just flowed and never dragged. The musical was awesome and kept our guests moving, building after dinner and speeches into a crescendo of energy that fed into a really joyful sparkler exit and a large exodus to our after party. My grandma even danced until the very last dance! Everyone wants a DJ with great taste and range, but what you get with Dan Quinn is not only that but a talented musician/singer... PLUS someone who cares about you and your entire day: how you will experience it, how your guests will experience it, and how to avoid pain points and design your ideal day. He made our day unforgettable and I'm immensely thankful.
Where can we start?! We are so incredibly grateful that we crossed paths with Dan and ended up choosing him to DJ our wedding. From the first phone call I had with Dan it was obvious he was personable, thoughtful, and very clearly cared about creating amazing memories for us over simply doing a job. He worked to figure out what made us, us, and then was sure to tie those unique qualities into the style of our wedding. He was organized, had a plan, and ended up keeping our friends and family on the dance floor until the very end (which trust us, this is a huge accomplishment!). When I had an idea last-minute (very last-minute) and decided I wanted to add something unique to the schedule, Dan met with me for over an hour the DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING to make this surprise for my husband happen. We can't go on enough about how great Dan was. He was our MC, our DJ, our one-man band, and at the end of the day, he was a good friend to us. If you choose Dan as your DJ he will surely exceed your expectations.
Dan Quinn is the MAN! The Myth! And The Legend!! From the second I reached out to inquire for my wedding, he took time to get to know my fiancé and I. Not only did he get to know us throughout the planning process, he also took time to get to know my family. He goes above and beyond to make sure your dream comes to life! He truly helped us throw the best party ever! He made sure to customize and personalize the event to our liking while utilizing his expertise in this industry to make it a successful event. We had 365 guests and the dance floor was packed the ENTIRE night. One thing that was important to us was that all ages were on the dance floor, from little kids to grandparents and everything in between. Needless to say, Dan Quinn did not have any issues making that happen! One of my favorite memories of the night was when my dad aka djmike was asked to make a special appearance behind the DJ booth. Dan Quinn knew my dad loves to DJ from what we told him during the planning process and it was his idea to include my dad in this way! djmike thrived and I must add all the guests did too! We are truly so grateful for DQ and all that he did for us to make our wedding the best night! I could not recommend him enough! He is the real deal!!
I honestly cannot say enough about how incredible Dan is. Choosing him to be part of our wedding day may have been the single best planning decision that we made! Dan is so much more than a DJ-- he is truly an artist. When you hire Dan, you are hiring someone who will walk with you throughout the process and who will take every detail of your event so seriously. We had a a really specific vision for the ceremony and reception with a lot of special elements and moving parts, including the two of us singing at our ceremony, a flash mob bridal party entrance, and a custom track for our first dance. Dan was up for all of it! He helped us bring our dreams to reality. We were getting married in an industrial warehouse space, and he set up all the lighting and sound for our event in a way that ensured great acoustics and created an incredible feel for the evening. He ran all the sound for our ceremony, which included three speakers and three different people singing, and he accompanied us on the guitar for our duet. He played incredible live music throughout dinner and served as emcee for the entire reception, making sure everything ran smoothly and that everyone had an incredible time! So many people told us it was the best wedding reception they'd ever been to, and I saw people getting out on the dance floor that I've NEVER seen dance before, including at their own weddings! Dan even created our event timeline and came up with some creative ideas for the day! When he found our my husband is into ultimate frisbee, he suggested we put the garter on a frisbee and have him throw it from the mezzanine level. It was so much fun, and everyone loved it. We had so much fun planning and hanging out with him before and during the wedding. If you want your wedding to be incredibly special and fun, hire Dan!
Dan is wonderful. Our initial phone screen lasted an hour and Dan go to know me and my husband personally. He then met up with us again and wrote down more detailed notes and shared his creative ideas on how we could make our wedding very special for honored guests. He sang and played his guitar live during our cocktail hour and we received a lot of compliments and questions about who he was. It was a nice surprise for our guests to experience both good live music and popular songs. We loved working with him and he did such a wonderful job on our special day!
My new wife and I were overly ecstatic with the performance Dan put on. He absolutely killed it and is the total package. From the lights, to the acoustic set during dinner, to the dance party he kept raging on the dance floor all night, we couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Dan got to know us before the event and the set he played perfectly reflected our personalities! After the wedding, we received multiple compliments on Dan. A quote from one of the guests, " I don't want to call him a DJ because he is way more than that, but that guy was (expletive) awesome!". So thank you Dan and we hope to see you down the road!
We booked Dan for our wedding 3.30.19 to play guitar during the ceremony, live music during dinner, then to DJ our reception. We could not have been happier with our decision! For people who are debating between a band or DJ- HIRE DAN. It was the best of both worlds. He is so talented and the live music during dinner was incredible, then he had an awesome set of songs to DJ afterwards. Another thing we loved about Dan is that he had enough equipment that there wasn’t really any awkward turnover time when he transitioned from live music to DJ. My officiant, coordinator and family were SO thankful to Dan for making the night run so seamlessly. As a younger bride who has NO experience going to weddings/ being in weddings and Dan helped me so much with the timeline for the night. I can honestly say I first booked him only for live music plus DJing aspect, but he’s worth booking for SO many more reasons. Side note*** pretty sure I got married on the coldest night in March history, and people stuck around after dinner solely for the entertainment.
My daughter surprised me with a 60th birthday party. Dan played both my daughter’s weddings, and I was thrilled to see him at my surprise party. He had a totally custom set with all my favorite songs, complete with lighting and special effects. My friends and family and I danced all night long and it was such a fun night. Dan is always incredibly professional and engaging, not to mention talented. We don’t hesitate to hire him for any event whether it be personal or for our company, and you shouldn’t either! We can’t wait to dance and sing along with him again!
Dan is not your ordinary DJ. From the very beginning, he was interested in getting to know us and our story. He wanted to know what our interests were, the type of vibe we were going for, who to point out in the crowd, and what songs got people on the dance floor! We met several times before our wedding and each time he had something unique to add to the equation. On wedding day, both Dan and his assistant provided an atmosphere that matched EXACTLY how I imagined. He was attentive to what I wanted (as the Bride), emceed the night to perfection, and kept the music flowing! The dance floor was packed ALL night and everyone talked about how much fun they had. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Dan. I HIGHLY recommend him and would use him again fro another event - I wish we had used his live performance piece as well! - Kelley
Dan was the DJ for my daughters wedding this past weekend! He’s the BEST!!! Everyone had a fabulous time and said the music was great! His assistant was awesome too! Dan made our party one that ALL will remember! Will use him again with the next daughters wedding! I was one happy mamma! - Kelley's Mom Barbara
My husband was very determined to get the best DJ for our wedding, it was his top priority. We accomplished exactly that by hiring Dan. From the first meeting to 24 hour before our wedding, Dan was patient, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. He made us feel at ease with everything even when we were really stressing on planning, late on deadlines, and even with changing songs and entrance descriptions a few days prior. We have been told countless times since the wedding that we had the most fun wedding they had been to and that our entrances were the best as well... both because of Dan. He is a true professional at his craft. Not only with the DJ side but he also did an incredible job with the lighting and took the MC role just as serious which really makes or breaks your wedding. We can't recommend Dan enough, he is so patient, creative and will accommodate any and all requests you can dream up and make them all come to life. He is also a wonderful guy and someone we are happy to call a friend after the wedding as well!
