  • Chad and his team are truly the best! They are versatile, professional, flexible and of course a whole lot of fun. I cannot say enough positive things about them and their ability to read the audience and keep the dance floor going all night long!

  • Chad was awesome on our wedding day. Everything we could have asked for in a DJ and more! He was super responsive and helpful in the planning process as well, and was calm and collected and FUN during our wedding day. Totally recommend.

  • We hired Chad after a co-worker recommended him (he was the DJ for their daughter's wedding). Chad was absolutely incredible every step of the way from first contact to post-wedding. He was amazingly flexible (3 outdoor set-ups at our wedding: ceremony, cocktail hour, reception). And when our ceremony started an hour late, he made the right choices when our reception / dancing time was shortened. He did an excellent job in 'reading the audience' and got everyone dancing the whole night. I can not express enough thanks to him for being a superb emcee and DJ. Planning weddings can be complicated and stressful...Chad made it simple and stress-free... he was an integral part of a memorable night!

  • This is the wedding dream team! Chad kept the dance floor hoping all night and Gretchen had everyone laughing at the photo booth. Both were so easy to work with and stress free. Our guests had the best time and so did we!

  • Chad made the process very easy - he had all the music we wanted (even arabic songs). He uses an app to help you pick the songs you want for each moment of the day and if you don't know what to pick he will help you decide. He was very professional and fun. We danced till we couldn't!

  • 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 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 ‘on... Read more

  • 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.

  • We can't say enough good things about Chad! We met with him beforehand to discuss everything we hoped for and he more than exceeded our expectations. All we wanted was a good dance floor and it was so packed, all of our guests were out there and didn't want to leave. A huge thanks to Chad for creating such a party for us!

  • Chad was awesome and so easy to work with. We've heard stories from friends about the DJs they used not going with the plan. So naturally we were concerned. Working with Chad, there was absolutely NO need to worry. Super professional and responsive. He played everything we wanted to hear and didn't play all the things we didn't want to hear. He kept the energy going the entire day. He really does just operate on another level compared to other DJs. He's awesome and if you're wondering who to go with, go with Chad Dowling.

  • Chad did a great job at our wedding. We weren't the easiest couple to work with -- my family needed to include some international hard-to-find music, and he worked with me to find it and incorporate it into the plan for the evening. He also worked with me to design a non-traditional timeline, and was very flexible when at the last minute we added a video screen/projection rental and threw a video showing into the mix. More importantly, he played all the music we requested in an order that kept the room engaged and moving. Everybody raved about how much fun the dancing -- and the wedding as a whole -- was. Plus, he's such a fun and kind and relaxed guy! Everything about our experience with him was wonderful.

  • Chad was the perfect choice to help make our special day so memorable. His professionalism and the way he easily worked with our coordinator and other vendors made the event much less stressful. He played a great mix of songs perfect for the diverse ages of our guests.

  • From the moment we met Chad we knew we were in excellent hands for our daughter's wedding. He was organized, helped us get our plans organized, and stayed in touch throughout the process. The music was fantastic, and Chad is the best Master of Ceremonies you could hope for. Even your non-dancers will be out on the floor having the time of their life. We also had Dowling Productions do the photo booth, and I highly recommend that addition. Gretchen is also a delight to work with, and her props were the best we have ever seen. It set the tone for fun and good times for everyone, and oh the memories we have now thanks to both of them. All our guests said our wedding was the most fun wedding they had ever attended, that's a tall order. You simply cannot find a better pair!

  • We used Chad Dowling Productions for both DJ and Photo Booth at our wedding, and it was the best decision that we made!! Chad was so amazing to work with on the DJ side. He listened to our ideas, worked with us on timeline, and helped put together the perfect dance party for our wedding! Gretchen handles the photobooth, and she is a dream to work with!! She put together such a perfect theme for the booth. Between the customized photos for our guests to take home, to props that perfectly fit our personalities and wedding theme, I wouldn't have changed a thing! Chad and Gretchen truly care about the couples they work with. They want your wedding to feel like the perfect night! It was so nice to have people on our team that cared so much about us and our guests. 5 Stars all day (unless there is an option for more)!!
