My husband and I were recently married on September 16th, 2016 at the Old Lantern Inn & Barn in Charlotte, VT. We were fortunate enough to have Mark with Top Hat accompany us for our special day, and could not have asked for anyone better! Top Hat Entertainment not only... Read More provided our guests with a great time, but also helped us to remain calm throughout the process by being readily accessible and open to offering ideas that would make our special day complete. Mark created a personalized playlist for our guests, and seemed to somehow know what songs to play at the perfect times. He kept the energy alive and made sure that our friends and family had a night of memories to last a lifetime! We would recommend Top Hat Entertainment to any couple looking to tie the knot, and to anyone looking for a true expert to make any occasion fun and bright.

From the beginning in working with Mike, everyone at TopHat was professional, courteous, and enjoyable to work with. For the actual day of, Mark set up everything...

All in all, we couldn’t have had a more enjoyable experience with everyone at TopHat and we highly recommend them to anyone having a wedding or other big event.

We worked with Top Hat DJ for our wedding in July 2017. They came highly recommended by our venue and they did not disappoint!

Top hat was an amazing vendor. They were very fast to respond and went above and beyond with our music, lighting, and photo booth requests. Through this vendor we hired a DJ, magic mirror photo booth, and up-lighting. Our DJ, Tyler, did a great job with our music selection,... Read More everyone had such a fun time dancing. People were dancing from the start of the music until the very end of this night, the dance floor was packed. The magic mirror photo booth was a hit. It was much less cramped than a regular photo booth. Our guests loved how they could sign their photo and even add emojis to it. The up-lighting was key, Tyler did a great job controlling the lights once the music started for dancing. We highly recommend Top Hat!!

Mike was on my team of STELLAR vendors! He made our lives SO easy from the moment we contacted them for our big day until the very moment I'm writing this review 2 weeks after our wedding date.

He was attentive and responsive to my EVERY need, no matter how big or small.

He rolled with the punches, which included me changing the location of our intros and first dances with about 10 minutes notice! I never saw anything but a smile and a great "can do" attitude! I enjoyed our experience with Mike and Top Hat, look forward to our memories for a lifetime, and look forward to a friendship with this company, as well.

The word OUTSTANDING doesn’t even begin to cover how great Top Hat Entertainment and DJ Daren Cassani were. First and foremost, owner Mike Detch and Daren both were very thorough in asking what we wanted to have at the reception. They left no stone unturned as they made sure... Read More they had names, songs, dances, and announcements in order. Mike suggested we have their photo booth and our guests went ballistic! We had over 400 pictures send to us digitally over Dropbox and our guests got a copy of their pictures on the spot. Absolutely worth every penny! We had a couple of very non-traditional songs and Top Hat was able to access them and have them cued up, ready to go in no time. My wife requested an older song for her father/daughter dance and Mike and Daren tracked down the specific artist she wanted (it’s been covered and rerecorded hundreds of times). It made a special moment even more memorable. But I really want to talk about how fantastic Daren was. He was sharply dressed and was spring-loaded and ready to go when we walked into the reception. He had lists out and promptly got the wedding party in line for announcements. There were three separate entrance songs and Daren seamlessly transitioned from one to the other. And he was fully tuned in to what was happening. Our first dance wedding song was starting to run a bit longer than I anticipated and I simply made eye contact with Daren behind the table and he instinctively knew to wind down the song. He even faded the song out right as it went into an instrumental so it didn’t seem as though he “yanked the needle off the album”. Daren knew what we needed before we even knew we needed it. He was focused and extremely professional. I can only assume that every employee at Top Hat is of that caliber. We cannot say enough about this man. We could not have prayed for a better person for the job. Thank you so much Daren Cassani and Mike Detch and everyone at Top Hat Entertainment that had a hand in making this an epic wedding. – Eric & Kelly

I can't say enough good things about Top Hat, and especially DJ Daren! The music from pre-ceremony, until our requested last song at the reception was perfect! Daren really knows how to get the party going, and keep it going! We also rented the Magic Mirror photo booth, and had... Read More SO MUCH fun with it... everyone LOVED it! It was very easy to communicate with Top Hat, and they made sure everything flowed smoothly, and that we got exactly what we wanted. Our best man was overseas and recorded a video for his speech, so Top Hat made sure that everything was downloaded and ready to go on their projector when it came time to show it... we were a little nervous about it actually happening, but Top Hat pulled through flawlessly. It was also a bonus that DJ Daren allowed our videographers connect to the soundboard, so that we now have great audio recordings of the ceremony and speeches. Like I said, I can't say enough good things about Top Hat, their employees, and their services! Would definitely recommend!!

We loved our experience with Top Hat and would recommend them to anyone! As an out-of-state couple, it was difficult to hire wedding vendors without recommendations, since we did not have an opportunity to meet everyone we hired before getting things set up with them. Top Hat... Read More was recommended to us by some other couples, and we’re so glad they were. From the beginning, they were very responsive and helped guide us through the process of choosing music, making sure we didn’t miss anything. On the day of, Tyler (our DJ) kept everything on schedule, checked in with us about timing, and made sure we knew what was going on and when certain things would happen (bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc.). He stayed later than we planned and kept playing, because our guests were having such a great time. He worked closely with the catering manager as well, to ensure a smooth and fun day for us. My only recommendation would be to meet with your DJ beforehand, even if it’s just a day or two. Tyler ended up wanting to check in with us about some things day-of, during cocktail hour, and we just wanted to get out there with our friends and family. Coming from out-of-state, this was hard to work out, but I wish we had been able to meet ahead of time, even for an hour or so. Other than that, everything was perfect and we’d recommend them hands down!
