Vermont Wedding DJ : Jeff Davis

Hello! My name is Jeff Davis, and I have worked for Supersounds over the past 20+ years. I am a high school math teacher at Mt. Mansfield Union High School, and also coached the Boys Varsity Basketball team at MMU for over 20 years. I find my experience as a teacher and coach has always helped me as a DJ. The ability to think on your feet, to communicate effectively with people, and to be comfortable in front of a crowd are all very important when it comes to teaching. Those same qualities are just as important when DJing. I really enjoy working with the people as they plan their special day, and ultimately, take great pride in making their Wedding Day a day they will always remember. 

As a DJ, I will strive to make your occasion exactly how you want it. We will talk about what your expectations are for your DJ well before your special day, covering all of the little details that will make your day one to remember. I appreciate you considering me as your wedding DJ! 


Vermont Wedding DJ: Geoff Garrow

It’s always about the bride. It’s always about the crowd. It’s always about the customer. For the past 30 plus years, I’ve enjoyed all aspects of DJ’ing; from college radio stations to bars and clubs, from private parties to weddings and celebrations. There’s just something about providing the perfect soundtrack to represent the perfect moment or occasion, that continues to drive me to work hard, prepare well, have fun, and create lasting memories.

Since I was young, music has been an important part of my life. From listening to Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 every Sunday, to eventually making my first mixed tape in 6th grade, I’ve fallen in love with hundreds of artists, thousands of songs, and dozens of genres. In college I was exposed for the first time to “Turntablism,” “The Art of Scratching,” and “Beatmatching.” I would challenged myself to memorize BPMs (Beats Per Minute), and find creative ways to mix and blend songs seamlessly, avoiding any dead air or continuous fading in and out.

Following my radio days, I invested in portable DJ equipment; providing custom services for private parties, weddings, and business events. My goals and mission then, are a direct reflection of my current values and objectives: Direct & Constant Communication, Customer Service Excellence, Professional Results, a Unique Customized Experience, and to Exceed Expectations.

It’s always your day, never mine. My job is to listen to your needs, requests, and expectations… and create an amazing soundtrack to your amazing day. Representing your special occasion, and watching everyone smile for miles, and dance to so many styles, is something I am grateful to be a part of each and every time.

Testimonials!

"Geoff was recommended by a mutual friend who is respected within the entertainment scene where we live! We were entirely comfortable communicating with him through the process of gathering information and creating the itinerary as well as playlist for our wedding. He has great pricing for the quality of entertainment he provides, is genuine, friendly and very professional. With the ability to freestyle the show on his own, follow set schedules, get on the microphone or simply display a generally fun and engaging atmosphere, I highly would recommend him to anyone who considers themselves a music aficionado, or someone who wants to not have to worry about the music aspect of their wedding/event! 10 STARS Geoff! And not to mention, he has a broad, eclectic taste in music too."

"Geoff was a shining example of professionalism in all aspects of wedding planning. His pre-wedding materials were thorough, organized and easy to complete. On the day of the wedding he arrived early and helped with a few last minute details. We could not have asked for anything more from a DJ and that was before the music even started spinning. Geoff took our suggestions for cocktail hour, dinner, and the reception and seamlessly wove them into a night that my wife and I will never forget. His years in the music business have given him a much deeper understanding of how songs flow together than any other DJ that I have come across. If I had to summarize his service in one word it would be OUTSTANDING!"

"For our wedding one of our biggest worries was thinking about picking our DJ. With one of us coming from the 70's, the other an 80's child and both with very eclectic tastes, we were worried we would not be able to find a DJ that could satisfy our broad musical taste. Geoff provided us with not only a musical selection that covered all our favorites, but an experience that left our guests raving. It was the best wedding music they had ever heard. Thanks Geoff for making our day a great success."

"Geoff played at my wedding, and the dance floor was packed all night. He has a way of knowing exactly what your guests want to hear and playing it for them before they even ask. He is not your typical cheesy DJ and you never have to worry about hearing those songs that every bride dreads hearing at her wedding. If you are going with a DJ, he is your man."

"The reception was awesome! The music was unlike a typical wedding. I sang songs I knew, and heard songs I hadn't heard in years. Everybody couldn't stop dancing."

"Geoff has been the highlight of all of our annual holiday gatherings. It started by chance, and has grown into a tradition that I anxiously anticipate. He delivers with an outstanding mix, woven from many diverse musical genres into a party masterpiece. He has the ability to meld a variety of music genres, making them fit cohesively together."

"Geoff handled all of our requests, and made an extremely wide variety of music meld into one of the best parties we've been to. Thanks Geoff!"

DJ Sam Averbuck

My name is Sam Averbuck.

My professional career in entertainment as a musician playing guitar and singing in bands began in 2002. I received my bachelor's degree in music with a concentration in education in 2010 and realized how much I enjoyed the performance side of music and making memorable nights memorable. Since then I have been hosting weddings, adult & family events, and performing regularly at a wide variety of venues loving every minute of it!

My attention to detail, and ability to really make an event all about the people attending it,
has proven time and time again I am a great fit to whatever you are looking for during your most special day.

Sam is also the Assistant Director of Entertainment at Smuggler's Notch Resort!


DJ Shawn Chapman

Hi! My name is Shawn Chapman and I have been a DJ with Supersounds Entertainment since 2017. I have been fortunate enough to do many outstanding events for this company. Being a wedding DJ is what I live for! I will make sure everyone has a great time and that everything is as YOU want it, after all, that is what I am there for!

I have been a musician since I learned to play the piano at 9 years old. I have a degree in Music Education from the University of Maine Orono Campus. I currently sing with the Solaris Vocal Ensemble based out of Burlington Vermont as well. 

Music is my life, and I look forward to bringing that passion to your events!


DJ Jarryd Audette

Hi! My name is Jarryd Audette. I have been a professional, well-versed and excitable DJ/Entertainer with Supersounds Entertainment since 2011, thanks to my great friend Ryan Allendorf who suggested I join the company. I learned much from him, along with many of the great veteran DJs in this company!  Thanks for reading a little about me and my experience ☺

People and Music: Among my favorite things in life, these two are certainly high up on the list. And, when they are combined, I am down-right inspired! As a DJ with Supersounds, and as a Musician since age 16, I’ve always been excited to be able to do and share a talent that I truly enjoy - which can usually be found in the moment on my face and/or with a few dance moves! Entertaining and helping others put on a great event/party is truly a great feeling that I take pride in no matter what the occasion. There’s always a certain eagerness, excitement, and wanting to do your best that comes along with helping make a day come true and to be part of a great memory in someone’s life!

Being able to read/vibe/interact with a crowd, to be flexible, have a go-with-the-flow attitude and being veritable with my DJing and music choices over my hundreds of gigs over the years has served me very well... name a type of event and odds are I’ve probably done it! Above all, on the day of the event I indulge in making customers happy and working off of their design.  I am not one to be biased with songs and genres, rather I enjoy the challenge of variety and to keep things interesting for everyone (if it calls for it)… a happy and filled dance floor is what I like to visualize and make happen!

There is nothing like Music and Dancing to bring people together for a moment to celebrate an important happening and let all matters melt away. I am psyched to have brought good times to many, and to be able to continue bringing it to others. I hope to see you out there! 

Thanks for reading, cheers and best wishes…

DJ Jarryd

I started at Supersounds 26 years ago as a High School Senior. I started with school dances and project graduations. Upon graduating from college, I decided to expand and try my luck with weddings. From that point on I have never looked back and I’ve completed over 500 weddings throughout New England. Flexibility is very important as a DJ as well as my other professions. I’m also an elementary school teacher and a varsity boys’ basketball coach. These three positions can create challenges as well quick on the fly thinking. Not only will I be there for you on your wedding day, but I will be a part of the entire process. Just always keep in mind it’s your special day. I’m here to help you!


DJ Charlie Rice

I have forty years of experience as an entertainer. I began as the lead singer of Downpour, one of Northern New England’s premier dance bands.

Groomsmen Gifts!?

This article is for Grooms and what to give your groomsmen / groomspersons as a gift to say "Thank You" for being in my wedding! This is a great gesture, as your groomsmen may be spending extra money and time helping you with your big day! It's a nice way to say "Thanks, Pal, I love ya!"

The big question is "What the heck do I get them!!???" I have 3 criteria for this gift: A) Something Useful B) Something That Will Last A Lifetime and C) Something that will remind them of your friendship and your big day!

Letter C might be the most important! But B and A are arguably just as crucial!!! I also include D) something that is not too boring!! Opinion: Toiletry bags are great but they've been done before! Also they aren't they type of thing everyone gets excited about! Something out-of-the-box might be right for you and your groomsmen / groomspersons!!

In my personal experience, I have received 2 groomsmen gifts that I remember and still use to this day, even after 15+ years! The first is a Leatherman multi-tool. I keep it in my car, and it will save you when you least expect it. You are guaranteed 100% to use one of these. And Yes, the pliers in the multi-tool are way more useful than any swiss army knife!!! The 2nd is a hand-blown monogrammed rocks glass. Flasks are great too, but not everyone goes camping often, or nips on their spirits daily! The glass is a perfect way to enjoy the occasional drink, filling the drinker with not only alcohol, but with fond memories of the person who gave it to them! It makes the drink taste better!

  • Consider an assortment of items! A goodie box! I gave my groomsmen a goodie bag of all sorts of trinkets - bottle openers, pocket knifes, stainless mugs, etc. You can throw in some coffee, liquor, pipe tobacco, cigars, etc etc the sky is the limit!!
  • Zippo Lighters! Monogrammed, or not, have a lifetime warranty, and even if your groomsmen don't enjoy even an occasional cigar or two, these are great for camping and using around the house.
  • Stanley drinkware! Monogrammed, or not, these things are rugged and will be around a long time! And they have a great nostalgic look to them! Consider perhaps a gift set or mug!
  • Rocks Glasses! Mentioned previously - these are great pieces that your buddies will enjoy for years to come!
  • Multi-Tools! Also mentioned above, these are so useful it's not even funny! Try to get one of decent quality and it will last a lifetime! Your groomsmen are GUARANTEED to use them and appreciate this gift!
  • INSIDER TIP: Don't DIY!!! Unless you have some crazy cool idea, you may want to keep it simple and easy by buying some stuff with your hard earned money! You will be spending plenty of time getting ready for your wedding and this is another thing you may not want to have on your DIY plate. DIY projects eat a ton of time and can get aggravating!!

Thanks for reading and wishing you the best of times with your groomspersons, and of course, your fiancé too!!!! Cheers to the bachelor party!!

-Ryan Allendorf

OK LET'S DO THIS!!!

Ok but really - what are some actual ideas ??!! You want to get this done now!!! Below are some options that I really love!

Some of these gifts are sourced right here in Vermont! We recommend ordering through their website or stopping by McNeil and Reedy in Rutland, VT for a wide variety of high quality Vermont groomsmen gifts!!!

Featured Vermont DJ: Bucky Brandt

Vermont Wedding DJ Bucky Brandt

Sometime  in the early 1990s, my neighbor, Supersounds founder and owner Grant Allendorf, asked me if I might want to become a DJ and work for him, and in the late spring of 1995, I began this completely unexpected and remarkably rewarding journey that has now led to my DJing more than 2500 events from weddings to corporate parties to mitzvahs to school dances to anniversaries to entertainment for tourists--all while teaching English and coaching lacrosse at Mount Mansfield Union High School.  At least 500 of these events have been weddings. I had no idea at the time how much I would come to love working for and being with people at their most joyous and intimate occasions. I am surprised how often I find myself moved to tears (well nearly--I am working) when I listen to a speech by a maid of honor, a best man, or a father of the bride I do not know about a bride or groom I also do not know.  Nevertheless, one of the truly serendipitous and joyful aspects of DJing for me has been that about four or five times a year I have the good and rich pleasure of DJing the wedding of a former student or lacrosse player.  So while I always enjoy the personal connection with our customers, the connection is all the more full at these events. Like all Supersounds DJs, I take great pleasure in working with the crowd to build the party and the dancefloor in order to allow people to be their very best at their most important occasions.  It is a tremendous privilege that I do not take for granted to have a job in which my goal and the source of my personal satisfaction is to make people happy--to push them to elation and create a sense of euphoria--all in a style that most suits them.  Whether I am at a dinner cruise on the lake, a school dance in a drab gym, or a grand wedding at a classic Vermont venue, this goal of making people smile and letting them find the most joy they can keeps me working hard for our customers and brings me as much pure exuberance as I believe and hope it brings them.
