    Great DJ at the Lyman Estate

    Chad was professional, organized, and fun! Our wedding was indoors at the Lyman Estate and he was very familiar with the space and the staff. He set up speakers and mics for ceremony music, cocktail hour music, toasts, dinner music and dancing. He also made everything work for the many different rooms we were using at the Lyman Estate. He also was excellent at making announcements and transitioning guests from one thing to another. We requested many songs ahead of time and he did a great job supplementing songs that went with what we liked. He kept people dancing and everyone had a great time. I would definitely recommend Chad for any event.

    Awesome!!!

    Chad from A Taste of Music DJ'd our wedding and he was totally amazing!!! From Day 1, he was responsive, professional, talented, and guided us through the whole process. He was so easy, fun, and pleasant to work with. After the initial calls/emails, he took the time to meet with us in person a few weeks before the wedding and went through the entire day in great detail. Not only did he help us with music, but he also helped us coordinate the timing and flow of the entire day, which was so incredibly helpful, as well as lighting and a photobooth. The day of, he totally nailed it! He showed up on time and with excellent equipment, including speakers, microphones, lighting, and a photobooth with props. He had perfect timing for the ceremony, and played great music for the cocktail hour and reception. Everything sounded great. He read the crowd perfectly, and made our wedding a day we will remember forever. Our friends are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding and how they LOVED the music, and it was so much fun to look at all the photo booth pictures. Chad took care of everything the day of and made everything go so smoothly, which was such a blessing with so much going on. I absolutely recommend Chad and A Taste of Music!!!!

    I had no idea how to choose a DJ when I started planning, but luckily my caterer recommended Chad because they worked together a lot. Once we met him it was a no-brainer, and we were so glad we followed the recommendation. Chad is the best! We met with him a few times before the big day to discuss ideas and logistics, and he was very down-to-earth, friendly, and professional.

    Our venue had multiple rooms, and we even ended up moving a lot of our reception outdoors because of the great weather, and none of that phased Chad. He was on top of everything. Before our toasts and first dance he asked my preference about whether to have them inside or outside, and since I wasn’t sure, I felt perfectly comfortable leaving it up to his best recommendation. We couldn’t have picked a better DJ for our wedding!

    Chad was a delight to work with leading up to the wedding, and absolutely fantastic on the day! He was personable, reassuring, and funny at our introductory meeting, thorough in follow-up communications, and brought all that charm to the reception as well. The music was fantastic, he was fun without being intrusive on the flow of the evening, and the dance floor was busy all night! One of my guests even 'complained' that there were so many good songs, she didn't have time to take a break from dancing, because there were none she felt like sitting out! I only wish there were more events for which we might need a DJ, because Chad was stellar start to finish.

    Chad was great. He DJed our wedding at the Lyman Estate and did an amazing job. He has worked there many times and knows the staff, other vendors, and estate layout well. Everything went smoothly on the day of--he checked in just the right amount and was kind and funny. The transitions from outdoor ceremony, to porch speeches, to music flowing through the estate all went beautifully. From the beginning, he put us at ease, championed our choices, and was easy to work with.

    From our first meeting with Chad, I knew that he was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He provided planning tools for us to use, song suggestions and asked questions that I hadn't even thought of! He was so responsive to everything, so organized and just a really great person! He totally catered to our crowd, and I don't think anyone left the dance floor. It was perfect from start to finish! He even helped us at the end of the night in a bit of a bind, which was so over and above any expectations but so genuinely appreciated, it truly felt like I had known him for years. Thank you SO much Chad for making our day so perfect!!

    We absolutely loved working with Chad! He was super responsive, very helpful, and extremely professional throughout the whole wedding planning process. The music he played during the wedding was a wonderful mix of everything, and everyone was out on the dance floor all night. Many guests complimented us on how much they liked Chad and his music selections. We'd definitely work again with him in a heartbeat!

    We recently used A Taste of Music for our wedding and highly recommend them. Chad was great to work with, very professional, and addressed all of our questions and needs. He was able to accommodate all of our requests and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. The music was exactly what we wanted and Chad made sure the event ran smoothly and without any issues. Our guests were similarly impressed with Chad and we could not recommend him higher for our wedding or any other event.

    We absolutely loved working with Chad from A Taste of Music for our wedding at the Lyman Estate in September 2015. He went out of his way to get a sense of our style and understand what kind of music, and event overall, that we wanted. His playlist was fantastic, keeping our guests on the dance floor all night with a great mix. He also handled logistics flawlessly, including handling microphones for our toasts on the porch and setting up a speaker with its own more mellow playlist for guests to relax in the library. His equipment was top-notch. He made us, and all our guests, feel completely at ease and made sure everyone had a fantastic time. We had guests coming up to us during the event to rave about how great he was. We can't recommend him enough.

    Chad was such a great DJ! He took our ideas/input and created an atmosphere where no one left the dance floor the entire night. He was very easy to work with and I'd recommend him to anyone!

    Chad was AMAZING to deal with! We met a few times and felt that he really understood the vibe we wanted and the music we liked. He also seemed to have a great handle on what a crowd would go for.
    At the reception he really kept the flow of the night moving. He got people dancing and was receptive to all our requests. He had worked at our venue before and really had great suggestions for how to use the space.
    His knowledge and expertise really took a lot of stress off my shoulders and i truly had fun!

    We hired Chad for 5 hours of DJing and a photobooth for our wedding. He was responsive, professional and detailed-oriented during all of our meetings prior to the wedding. He also did a excellent job the day of: coordinating with various other vendors (like our pianist and photographer), checking in with us to make sure the night moves along on time, and playing to what the guests wanted to hear. He even went above and beyond to help my brother in law set-up the karaoke somewhere else at the reception site.

    In addition, his rates are incredibly reasonable for the Boston area. We would hire him again in a heartbeat.

    We received a recommendation for Chad Priest from our caterer (they worked together in the past). We met with him at a tasting event and immediately had a great vibe from him that he has the right personality to "host" our wedding. He was really easy to get a hold of, made great suggestions for wedding day timeline, and worked really well with the other vendors at our wedding (all booked independently).
    This guy is calm, cool and collected. No cheesiness DJ here. He helped to direct the show on day of and all music was timed perfectly from our ceremony (pretty far on from the reception at our venue) and making sure that we stayed on track throughout the night. He stuck to his promise and didn't play any requests on my "no" list: no chicken dance, line dancing or Boys 2 Men. I had several friends approach me just to comment on him that he was so much fun. We spoke the week before the wedding and he was very consultative with feeling out the guests/crowd. He offered to put together some games or more activities to keep everyone entertained if needed. No need though because the dancing never stopped. Music was great! The price was right in our budget too. I would totally recommend him for weddings!

    I can't say enough about how great Chad was! Thank you so much for making our wedding awesome. We had an amazing time! We got so many compliments on the play list and how great he was! He even called me at 8:00 AM on the morning of the wedding to help calm my nerves.

    Chad did a fantastic job for our wedding. My wife firstly had come up with quite a complicated uplighting system, with the colors changing throughout the evening. Chad brought, and set up the uplighting and did everything perfectly to my wife's specifications. His DJ'ing was to a similarly high standard, and our guests danced non stop once the music began. He was very friendly and took requests from the guests to keep the reception rocking. I would have no hesitation in recommending A Taste of Music and Chad for any event that you may have.

    Chad did a fantastic job at our wedding. We could not have been happier. If you pick you cannot go wrong!
    He asked us about what we wanted to hear at the wedding but used his experience and discretion as well to make sure the dance floor was buzzing. He has everything from Twist and Shout to Moves like Jagger. The speaker and sound system was great and Chad was all ready to go with the microphones for the speeches on the veranda outside prior to going in for the meal and the disco. And he's a very nice guy as well. Everyone was commenting about how good it was.

    Chad was amazing. We hired him after being told about by a friend. He was friendly, soooo easy to work with and had an amazing sound system that wasn't too large but had large sound. He bent over backwards to meet all our crazy song demands. Can't say enough good things about him. I'd hire him 100 more time if I could.

    Chad was amazing! He was so helpful throughout the entire process, and I felt completely and entirely comfortable having him in control. He was professional, yet fun and upbeat and really just kept a smile on my face the entire evening. He really is great at what he does, and you can feel totally comfortable giving him the basics and letting him do his thing :)

    We used Chad from A Taste Of Music for my daughters wedding on saturday May 4, 2013 and I could not have asked for better service! Chad was extremely professional & played the best music. My guests danced all night long! Very courteous, and attention to every detail was impeccable from the planning stages to the event! I would definitely recommend Chad and A Taste of Music to anyone looking for a great DJ!

    Chad ROCKED!! Just no other way to put it. He was on the ball, knew what we wanted with little direction, the music was exactly what we wanted and the lighting was awesome!! We had pretty specific music taste and he listened to us exactly. It was a pleasure to work with him and I cant recommend Chad enough!

    Chad is amazing! He just DJ'd my wedding and everyone is still raving about the music days after! He knows exactly the right type of music to play for all ages, and even caters to the Bride & Groom's needs in other areas throughout the ceremony & reception. He never let me down and was always within ear and eyeshot of us at all times in case we needed something. I saw him more than I saw my wedding coordinator! I would shout his name from the rooftops to anyone in need of a DJ!!
