Chad is THE wedding DJ. He and his wife Gretchen are your wedding dream team. They have years of experience and do everything they can to ensure your wedding runs smoothly.
You don’t realize how crucial your DJ is until the day of your wedding. This is the person who sets the tone for your entire event. Your DJ announces everything (first dance, dinner, cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc.) and investing in seasoned professionals like Chad & Gretchen are a must!
Aside from music, Chad and Gretchen also offer up-lighting services, games, and a photobooth. For our wedding we opted for up-lighting and their photobooth. We honestly couldn’t have been happier. The photobooth was a huge hit with our guests and it’s run separately by Gretchen. Post wedding Gretchen sends you a complete album with all photos and even digital, high resolution copies. It was truly an unplanned and amazing guestbook we didn’t even know we were getting.
Overall Chad & Gretchen aim to create a ‘one stop shop’ and they hit it right on the mark. You will not regret booking this DREAM TEAM for your big day!

Everything we wanted!!
Chad has a new name in our family. “Chad the amazing DJ” From the first meeting to the exceptional play list for the wedding ceremony, the cocktail hour, dinner AND DANCING he was the perfect choice for us. The flow of announcements; following our timeline and keeping us on schedule so we could fit every detail in and have the guests know what was happening each step of the night was fabulous. He rocked it for the whole event. His voice is fun and caring, his fun surprise party tube lights were a hit with the guests on the dance floor! He checked every box to make the night magical for our daughter and her husband. We were so happy we found Chad!!
Thank you so much! Ken and Lisa

Chad was fantastic every step of the way as our wedding DJ. He answered every question we had at our first meeting, then answered all the questions we didn’t previously know we had during our second meeting and he was always available for us throughout the entire process.
Selecting the music we wanted to hear was a breeze – and actually quite a bit of fun. Chad also offered up recommendations that fit us and our desired vibe perfectly.
As for the main event – Chad just flat out delivered. The music was all perfect, wonderfully timed and everything he did fit together beautifully. The dance floor stayed busy all night with people of all ages.
We received many compliments about the music and Chad. We couldn’t be happier with everything he did for our wedding and we wouldn’t hesitate to give him our most sincere recommendation.
Fun, entertaining, awesome; Chad will make your party amazing!
Great staff, great service, amazing DJ's!
I look forward to every wedding I do with the Chad Dowling crew! I know the sound will be crystal clear and that everyone in attendance will be able to hear every word of the ceremony. The music will be expertly mixed, and they'll hit every cue right on the money. And they always make me sound amazing! :-)
