Stop shopping around: Chad and Gretchen are amazing!!

First of all, both Chad and Gretchen are simply kind and people we'd highly recommend you hire at any party. They bring great energy and excitement, and clearly enjoy what they do, making it fun all around. Chad DJ'd and MC'd at our wedding throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception until the end of the night. He's great at what he does and has an awesome set up. Gretchen helped assisted throughout, providing cool smoke all over the dance floor during our first dance and was key to staying in sync with our onsite event coordinator and wedding party for the entrance in particular. Stop looking around and work with Chad and Gretchen for your wedding or party!

Incredible DJ & MC!

Chad and his wife Gretchen were an absolute pleasure to work with. Chad uses an app where you can customize the music as much as you'd like (you can upload whole playlists from Spotify!) There were some sections I didn't have a preference for music so we trusted Chad to do his thing. Chad is super responsive, organized, and a lot of fun! He kept the party going for the entire duration of the evening. Chad and Gretchen arrived to the venue early with plenty of time to set up and get things going before guests arrived. You can definitely tell Chad is passionate about what he does. We are about 3 weeks post wedding and people are still reaching out to us about how much fun they had! Look no further for your DJ & MC needs - Chad is your guy!

The Best DJ you can hire

tl;dr Chad is absolutely the best DJ you can hire for your wedding; if you have the opportunity to book him, you absolutely should!!

Our wedding planning was long and stressful. There were so many moments where we wondered if anything would connect and if everything was worth our effort.

All of those thoughts went to rest once we spoke with Chad and Gretchen.

Their knowledge and experience put us at ease as we knew we had the perfect host for our wedding.

We filled out a detailed form regarding music selections and smaller details about wedding procedure, and once the wedding day came everything played out as intended.

There will always be delays during the wedding day itself, but Chad kept the party going, inserted songs seamlessly to our playlist, and so many guests have told us personally how the DJ is so good. Chad even worked with us to facilitate a more intricate part of our wedding dance, and his light up DJ booth and lights kept the ambiance going all night long!

Chad and Gretchen are perfect hosts, and they are good people. If you are on the fence about which DJ to choose for your wedding, you will not have any regrets with them by your side. If they are available for your wedding date, book them 1000%!!

Chad and Gretchen helped to make our dream wedding a reality!!!
