About this Vendor
Vintage Inspired Entertainment
Ain't we've got fun! The premier vintage inspired disc jockey service. Spinning tunes from the "Roaring 20's" through today. Our presentation includes chrome microphones, bow ties, suitcases, and vinyl. We keep it timeless and classy! We also have available original gramophones that we spin Hot Jazz and Swingin' big band tunes on. Perfect for the most unique cocktail experience ever! Our Philosophy: We believe music has the power to connect us all. The energy of the reception ebbs and flows in a very organic way. For that reason we don't believe in a static playlist. We not only "read the crowd", we plug into the energy of the collective, and live by it, as one beating heart.

To future couples: go delete every email, phone number and any other form of communication you have with another possible DJ because guess what- you've found the best team right here. The Dapper DJ's played at my May wedding but long before that, my now-husband and I knew we were in great hands. Alex spent hours on the phone with us, bouncing back and forth ideas and tweaking the details until we got things just right. And after that, when we changed our minds about this song and that song, Alex was very responsive and eager to do whatever we thought was best. He had valuable suggestions and was always up to date with our theme- Alex made us feel like a couple he was truly invested in and not just someone he wanted money from. He met us at the venue prior to the wedding, traveling a fair distance on his own time, simply to ensure the set up and sound would be the best possible option. As for the actual wedding, Alex and his brother showed up early, knew what they needed to do to get ready and started off the ceremony seamlessly. Every song was exactly what we asked for, with faded endings and perfect transitions. We had almost everyone up and dancing at some point during the reception and I had many, many people come up and tell me "the DJ is amazing!". My husband and I are so happy with how well the Dapper DJ's led the night and we highly, highly recommend their services to anyone looking for attentive, fun and unforgettable DJ's! Thank you for the amazing night!
Dapper DJs is by far the best DJ there ever was. We had Alex and so many people came up to us at and after the wedding asking where we found him. In fact, our wedding coordinator and Alex said they had never seen so many people dancing at a wedding. People were on the dance floor the entire night. Alex is a true professional and we could not be more grateful for his amazing expertise and the ability to have his pulse on the party and the crowd. We worked together to create a music list and he listened to everything we had to say. Dapper DJs is worth your money and will make your big day that much more special!
Our guests are still talking about how incredible Alex and his team are! They definitely brought the “wow” factor to our wedding and reception, and it was amazing! From the beginning stages of planning the music for our wedding and reception, Alex was willing to help us with everything. He took all of the things we wanted and filled in the gaps to make it a seamless and amazing tribute to us! When we weren’t sure about certain song choices, Alex was right there playing samples and providing suggestions for us to help in our decision. Without Dapper DJs our wedding would not have been a dream come true, they showed up and brought their A-game… I don’t think they have anything but an A-game! If asked who to hire as a DJ, for any event, our only answer would be, “Dapper DJs!”
Our wedding was Nov 18th this year, and we were SO HAPPY with DJ Will from the Dapper DJs! We let him know the type of music we were looking for, and he really delivered the best. I had a quick talk with him before the event began about small details, and he remembered them all. We got a ton of feedback from our guests about how much they enjoyed the music throughout the night. From the instrumental versions of popular songs today during the down-time to DA BEST dance tunes. It was really phenomenal, and I would recommend the Dapper DJs to anyone needing a fantastic DJ. The DJ truly makes a reception great, and ours was the best. :) Thank you so much!!!!!
Alex provided DJ services for our wedding on November 18th and we couldn't be happier with the service he provided. The music selection, flow of various speeches and events, and overall choreography was spot-on. The overwhelming feedback we received from out guests was that it was the best DJ and music selection they've ever experienced at a wedding. Couldn't be happier! Thanks, Alex! Luke and Sam
We were SOO happy with our choice to work with the Dapper DJs for our October wedding at Stone Tower Winery. Alex was so great to work with – he met with us in person a couple times and had multiple phone calls with us to make sure our music vision came true. Everyone at our wedding loved the old style music during cocktail hour and he had our dance floor going strong throughout the night. We 100% would recommend Dapper DJs! Thank you, Alex for being a part of our day!!!
DJ Alex was AMAZING at my wedding. He asked me what kind of music I was after and delivered 100%! My guests and I were dancing up until the last song and they all sang their praises. Definitely a great vendor choice!!
They deserve 10 stars! We worked with both Jack and Alex in planning our wedding and had Jack as our DJ on the day of. They made planning easy and were very fun to work with along the way. On the day of, Jack went above and beyond the call of duty! He ran all over the place helping set things up that the venue staff failed to do. He was incredible! He also kept things flowing on time all night and kept the dance floor hopping (despite the lack of dancers in our guest list)!! We loved our experience with the Dapper DJs! They know how to throw a party.
We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have the Dapper DJ’s host our wedding. Alex was so flexible in accommodating us with our enormous song request lists and meeting with us multiple times prior to our wedding to make sure all the details were addressed and accounted for. When I frantically emailed him the week before our wedding because I had forgotten to coordinate music for our sparkler exit, he worked with the coordinator at our venue to make sure everything was taken care of so that I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Alex understood our wedding vision, and on the day of our wedding, he not only helped keep everything on schedule, but the entire event, from the pre-ceremony music to our sparkler exit, was classy and flowed seamlessly. We are so glad we chose Dapper DJ’s and highly recommend!!
My husband and I had a great experience working with Alex with the Dapper DJs. Throughout the planning process, we had a number of calls with Alex where we discussed our vision for our event, and he was so helpful as we were putting together our playlist. The Dapper DJ style fit in perfectly in our rustic barn wedding, and Alex did a tremendous job of reading the crowd and keeping the party going. And he was extremely accommodating when this musically-minded bride wanted to grab the microphone to sing to the crowd...multiple times. Our guests commented on what a great party it was, and Alex played a big role in that. Thank you!
Alex and Sam were the absolute best! From the moment I sat down with them I knew they would fit in perfectly with our wedding, family and friends! They were happy to answer all questions and meet up anytime. They were incredibly flexible, (my husband and I both work evening shift and live in WV) and Alex and Sam were always happy to work with our schedules. I made a last minute addition to our playlists the night before our wedding and they made the correction without any issues. The night went smoothly and ran on schedule with the help of the Dapper DJ's amazing skills and professionalism!
We booked The Dapper DJs at the recommendation of another vendor and because they had great reviews and we really liked the idea of a Victrola at the cocktail hour. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed and don’t feel we got the quality we expected for the cost. I was a little upset that I was being asked questions the days leading up to the wedding and even more disappointed that Alex came into the room where we were waiting in to be announced (after the reception was already starting a half hour late) to ask questions about order and pronunciation for introductions. During introductions, Alex had a technical issue and didn’t play our entrance and first dance song when expected; instead of filling the time or silence he just left us hanging there awkwardly with 120 people staring at us waiting for it to come on. Afterwards he did some over and apologize and I told him it was alright (things DO go wrong after all). If it had been left at that it wouldn’t have been too bad but I continued to be disappointed. It seemed Alex was constantly missing in action and did not announce speeches as dinner was served as was the plan and the day of coordinator wasn’t able to find him to remind him to get them going. Because of this the whole reception ran behind and we had to push all the events (speeches and cake cutting) into a crammed few minutes so the vendors could get to their meals and we were late getting around to tables to greet folks, most of whom had already left their tables since dinner was over. I was also very disappointed that he played almost all of the songs on our “must play” list while we were walking around to tables and weren’t able to dance yet (which we specifically discussed he was to play the must play when we were in the room and able to dance); by the time we could get to the dance floor he was playing a bunch of songs we didn’t like. I’m very pleased with all my other vendors but the DJ was a disappointment.
The Dapper DJs are seriously the best possible decision we could have made for our wedding. These guys are seriously great. Firstly, in the craziness of planning everything, they were always responsive and willing to go out of their way to meet up with us and discuss our playlists. Building a personal relationship with Jack was very easy, and also very helpful in lessening the pressure. Jack covered all of our needs and wants, and the PLAYLIST! It was truly spectacular! The entire night, everyone was dancing their hearts out. It catered to the entire crowd, and he took into serious account the songs we really wanted to include. Jack got people dancing that we would never have dreamed would. Take it from us, selecting a great DJ is one of the few things that actually does matter in a wedding. The party is what people will remember, never forget that! Thank you guys SO MUCH!
Our wedding day was an absolute dream, and our DJ Will played a huge role. We gave him quite the challenge- a small, mid-afternoon wedding with no alcohol and very few traditional dances. He NAILED it! He got the guests on the dance floor and put smiles on everyone's faces. Will and I met a few months before and I gave him our vision for our ceremony, and how that would transition in to the reception. He listened so closely and helped us pick the perfect music for each moment, and on our wedding day everything went so smoothly. Will is extremely kind and energetic, and he is so enthusiastic about his job-I think he had just as much fun as we all did! Will has an amazing way of listening to your vision for the event, then giving suggestions based on his expertise and experiences, all while ensuring that your satisfaction is the most important. You won't regret choosing Will from Dapper DJs!
When we set out to find a DJ for our wedding, we made it a point to make sure we didn't settle for your typical corny joke telling dude with a whole bunch of forced enthusiasm. After almost giving up hope, we met Alex from Dapper DJs and immediately knew he was the right choice. Not only does he bring his own brand of classical and retro class to any event, he can mix and match it with the tastes and preferences of his clients. For example at our wedding, we had a pretty wild reception with some specific song demands which he happily met. For the cocktail hour right before however, he was able to bring in some old record players and set the tone perfectly with his own style. On top of all this, he seamlessly fit in with the other vendors and requirements of our venue bringing wireless equipment and sufficient up lighting. All in all, we could not ask for much else. Alex was responsive and open when we needed him and completely self sufficient and behind the scenes while we were in wedding mode. I highly recommend Dapper DJs for any type of event.

I love the Dapper DJs. I worked with Will and from the beginning, he made sure I got exactly what I wanted. Our face to face meeting was very useful and he got to know us and gave us really good advice on our music and things to expect the day of. He followed up with us and checked in the week of the wedding to make sure everything was in order. The day of, everyone had a lot of fun! He definitely got everyone dancing. Definitely recommend them!
We had a relatively remote wedding in Cumberland, MD so we looked for DJs closer to western MD and we couldn't be happier that we found Alex. He was easy and fun to work with, extremely into doing whatever would make us happy, and so kind and available. Originally we wanted a live band after my sister had had such a great experience with hers, but we just couldn't afford it. So when we found Alex, we were pleasantly surprised by his extremely competitive pricing while offering interest and entertainment value, going beyond simply playing music by bringing the "dapper" persona. He played vinyl oldies during our cocktail hour and transitioned up to current music and kept the dance floor hot during our reception, all while acting as a top-notch MC. We initially booked the Dapper DJs because they seemed like the next best option after the live band we wanted, but I think we ended up even happier with Alex than we would have otherwise. I highly recommend Alex for your wedding or any other event where you want music with a nice accent of entertainment. We loved him, our guests loved him, and I'm confident you will too!
We hired Alex from the Dapper DJ’s for our October 2016 wedding. From our initial consultation with him, he was fun and engaging and honest. We liked his straightforward pricing options and his cool style. Alex had two DJ setups at our wedding, the main one serving the ceremony and reception, and a vintage setup for the cocktail hour. Our guest loved the vintage vibe at cocktail hour, and all evening they kept raving about the music selections. Alex was great at seeing what the crowd was into and playing a great mix of oldies and new stuff to keep people dancing. He was even able to find some special Cuban music that we wanted to play to honor the grooms culture. From day one, Alex was great to work with and very attentive, we would highly recommend him to everyone!
Working with The Dapper DJ's was a just amazing! If I can scale their work 1 to 10 I'll give 18!! Alex he is one of nicest and most stylish Dj which I ever meet. Very easy to work, everything on time and music which he was playing was phenomenal!! Can't wait to work with them again and definitely recommend for every single bride who want's something unique and super professional!
Dapper DJs was a wonderful choice for our wedding. Alex came early and set everything up, he accommodated all of our equipment requests. He also played everything we wanted, even though some were really off the wall requests!! The only critique I have is that I wish there was an additional speaker on the other side of our reception, it was a dead zone for the music playing during dinner and for the speeches. That being said, Alex was very professional and a great DJ.
The Dapper Dj's treat you like family.....like the family you want to invite to your wedding....not your second cousin twice removed. They are an amazing company who have a unique style all their own to make your guests feel at home and excited to dance no matter what generation they belong to. I loved working with this campany and highly recommend them.
Alex is truly a unique addition to any great wedding. He's very responsive and easy to work with with still delivering as a great DJ for a very fair price. Your search is over.
We've used Alex on several occasions for our non profit Sophie & Madigan's Playground. All of the DJs who have worked out events have been amazing. Everyone comments on the unique atmosphere they create.
Alex was an absolute dream to have for our wedding. Professional, kind, and definitely attuned to what our guests wanted to hear that night. He helped me plan out the entire timeline from the ceremony all through the last song, recommended music and special dances. Of all the fantastic people I was able to hire through the process, I would never hesitate to recommend Alex and the Dapper DJ's to everyone!
these guys are fantastic!! we used them for our wedding and they fit the theme perfectly. we let them choose most of the music and everyone had a great time! I love these guys!

Hi There! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Alex, the original "Dapper DJ" I've been a DJ and MC for the past 15 years. A handyman at heart, I love to tinker! Funny enough that led me to where I am today. 6 years ago while visiting my folks for the holidays I noticed the old family Victrola was broken. Having nothing to give that year I decided to take a crack at fixing it! So that's what I did! With a snap of the spring and a few colorful words I was able to repair it! That Christmas I fell in love with the old records, and a vintage DJ was born! I can't wait to share it with you!
