Seven-time winner of the WeddingWire Bride’s/Couple's Choice Award (2009 through 2015)

DJGreyhound provides professional DJ services for elegant weddings and upscale occasions. We are highly regarded in the wedding community, and we support greyhound rescue through donations and volunteer work.

We feature all-inclusive packages because we don't believe in nickel and diming or trying to upsell extra services. Our 4 hour all-inclusive packages are priced under $1,000 for most areas. This provides an excellent value for your dollar. The only extra charge is for additional performance time beyond 4 hours.

In order to make your dj search less stressful, we post our pricing and availability schedule on our website. Please check our schedule to see if we're available for your event.

If you are interested in our services and we are available, then it is highly recommended that you schedule a preliminary consultation prior to booking us - consults can be in person or over the phone. Please visit our online brochure for our company profile, for pricing and availability, and for complete information on our all-inclusive packages. Read less

We had a Halloween themed wedding, and we asked Vern to keep the dance floor packed without being too over the top. He more than accomplished that! He also worked with us and the venue on a schedule of events. Everyone had a really great time at our wedding and Vern was a huge part of that!

Vern was wonderful! We got multiple compliments from our wedding guest at how great our DJ was. He did a wonderful job of playing good music during dinner and many people complimented that the dinner music didn't overpower the conversation etc. Then once it was time for dancing- he did a great job of getting everyone out on the dance floor. He was also wonderful behind the scenes. He was responsive and helped guide us through a lot of the decision making. Planning with him ahead of time helped ensure that everything went really smoothly on the wedding day! Also, when our venue threw us a curve ball and planned an event right before our wedding- giving all the vendors not a lot of time to set up- Vern handled it so well and worked with the venue to make sure everything was ready to go on time. He also went above and beyond and tracked down our hard to find first dance. You will not regret hiring DJGreyhound!

Vern Shird, owner of DJ Greyhound DJ Services, provided music for my daughter's wedding reception on October 18. Held at Camp Greentop in Catoctin Mountain Park, Vern first set up in the Recreation Hall, yet managed to provide music in the Dining Hall next door as the guests enjoyed their dinner. Afterwards, when everyone moved to the Recreation Hall, the fun really commenced. Vern provided hour after hour of music the crowd loved. Unlike some parties that really take a while to get going, the guests danced from the beginning . . . and didn't stop until Vern did. Why get an expensive band that has to take breaks when you can get a reasonably-priced DJ like Vern? He's twice as much fun at half the price!

Thanks, Vern!

Vern did a great job DJing our wedding reception! We had two reception spaces- one for dinner and the other for dancing- so he set up a remote station for dinner music and had a wireless mic for toasts, plus had his larger setup in the dancing room. My mom's only complaint was that she spent too much time dancing and didn't meet everyone! He played great music that kept us dancing all night! Thanks Vern!

If you're on the hunt for DJ that is talented, professional, friendly, funny, and kind--look no further! We found Vern using weddingwire.com and he received top-notch ratings from over 90+ reviews. Now I know why. From our very first email exchange and in-person meeting with Vern, he proved himself to be organized, experienced, thoughtful, and EXTREMELY interested in making the music experience for our wedding EXACTLY how we wanted it. Our emails with questions or ideas were always responded to promptly, and even days before our wedding when we had to make adjustments, Vern made everything come together.

Not only did Vern provide impeccable planning and coordination before the wedding, he created the best possible atmosphere and implementation of our plan during the wedding day. Our goal was to have EVERYONE dancing (our friends, our family, grandparents, etc.) during our reception, and Vern created the perfect mix and timing of modern songs and older songs, fast songs and slow songs. We even did a surprise mash-up dance after my father-daughter dance, and Vern kept everything running smoothly.

Oh, and did I mention that he's an excellent MC? He double-checked the pronunciation of everyone's names in our wedding party (all 16 of them), made the announcements for toasts, dinner, cake-cutting, and sparkler exit, and even gave us a CD with 11 memorable songs from our wedding day.

I really can't emphasize enough just how happy and satisfied you will be if you choose Vern (DJGREYHOUND) for you wedding (or any other event). I give him my highest recommendation.

Good music is essential to a great party. Vern did an impeccable job at our wedding reception. He accommodated all of our requests, and remained loyal to the genres that we had submitted during planning. He was also able to read our crowd and improvise to ensure that everyone remained dancing. There was not one moment during our reception that the dance floor was empty. He managed the schedule of events as we had planned and also was flexible enough to handle all requests that were presented by the bride and wedding party. Dj Greyhound played an intricate part in creating a outstanding and incredibly fun wedding reception.

So easy and kind to work with! I've never used a DJ for anything before so I had no idea how to choose songs, but he was so helpful and communicative. And then for the actual wedding, he was everything that I'd hoped for and all my guests enjoyed him as well. Highly recommended.

Vern was simply fantastic! We received a huge number of complements from guests on the music, and he handled introductions for toasts and other things perfectly (including mastering the pronunciation of some difficult foreign names). Otherwise he largely stayed out of the way, playing perfect, well-transitioned music so that everyone could have a great time, without being a distraction. I originally wanted to use a band rather than a DJ, but I could not be more pleased with Vern and our choice to use him. He was a large part of the reason that our wedding was so successful.

As greyhound lovers and owners, DJ Greyhound was the obvious first choice for our DJ, based on the name alone. And then, Vern's brilliant attention to detail, solid preparation in choosing music, catering to our specific and slightly different needs, and rocking the party all night made it EVEN BETTER. He offered great suggestions to specific parts of our wedding and made sure all our requests were answered. Everyone had a great time and he fit into our greyhound-themed wedding, perfectly.
