Daniel Cormier, aka DJ D.C. With many years of hosting large events, DJ DC knows that music is the soundtrack to our lives. This former WMMS DJ/On-air Producer can set the mood with his limitless selection of music. DC assures a professional experience like no other. DC will meet with you prior to the date to make sure your celebration is a remarkable one. With his pre-planning and on-sight organization, your event will be a success.
Daniel was born and raised in the Boston area (Salem, MA) and now resides in Northeast Ohio. He and his wife Amy have three children, Madelyn, Mason and Maren.
Very happy with our wedding entertainment!
The number one thing that can make or break a wedding is the deejay. When it came to entertainment, there are only two companies in NE Ohio that I recommend, so we started with CMG. The entire staff at CMG is amazing- Scott Jones is the best in the biz and each professional that works for him reflects the same values and professionalism. Office staff is friendly and helpful.
We planned our wedding in under 8 months, so the deejays I was familiar with were booked already. We chose our deejay off recommendation and his video- DJ Dan Cormier. We love Dan! He set up a meeting to chat about our details form and go over some of our questions. We were one of those couples who annoyingly created their own play list, but he was so awesome about it. He had a lot of ideas on how to incorporate some of our choices into the day and made sure he helped create exactly the wedding we wanted. He asked me to leave a voice mail 2 weeks prior with the pronunciation of our wedding party names which I thought was awesome.
Here’s an example of why this was a perfect choice for us:
Dan knew that we wanted a packed dance floor all night. We also wanted to do a sparkler send off, but was afraid we’d lose guests too early, so we decided to invite just the wedding party and parents for the send off. Hubby and I were waiting in the hallway to go outside and I hear the Macarena playing inside. Immediately I went ‘What the hell? For SURE the Macarena wasn’t on our music list!’ It only took a second for me to realize what he was doing- DJ DC knows that the Macarena (or any other line dance) will keep people on the dance floor PLUS he avoided playing one of ‘our’ songs because he knew we’d miss it. Obviously, this is quick thinking and why you get what you pay for- a true professional!
Our dance floor was packed until they kicked us out. SO much that the dance floor was actually bouncing. DJ DC kept our party rockin and accommodated any changes we threw at him. Somehow, he managed to squeeze in most of the songs from our playlist. It was the perfect night and we couldn’t thank Dan enough for providing us with great entertainment.
That being said- I know we picked out entire playlist. But there is a HUGE difference between ‘just pay for Spotify and let it play on a laptop’ and an experienced deejay emceeing your evening. Trust your wedding to someone who knows what they’re doing.Daniel and Michele BarnesApr 28, 2018Springvale Ballroom
I was thrilled with our DJ at our reception, I had many people comment about how he was fantastic. They talked about his selection of music, how he knew just how much to talk and not talk. I could not be happier with our experience with DJ DC, he was very professional and truly made our wedding day an enjoyable experience. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is having a wedding or other function where they want their guests to have fun!Melinda and David EnglundMay 5, 2018Wagners of Westlake
DJ DC for the win!
DJ DC was a fabulous DJ for our wedding! His communication with us prior to the event was great. He was punctual to our event. His playlist was amazing and he was a wonderful MC. Thank you so much for helping make our day special!Audra & John BuckOct 7, 2017The Lodge at Mapleside Farms
Can’t Say Enough Good Things!
I seriously can’t say enough good things about our experience with Cleveland Music Group. We contracted two groups – guitarist Nate Jones for our cocktail hour and DJ DC for our reception. Nate set the perfect tone for our evening. DJ DC followed and did not disappoint. The dance floor was packed the entire night, right up until the last song. In addition, DJ DC was amazing in terms of planning for the big day. We had a phone conversation where we reviewed how the big day would go. He was thorough and attentive, and he delivered! Plus, we provided CDs of the dinner and reception music. A perfect added touch. I would definitely recommend Cleveland Music Group to anyone!Mackenzie Smith and Bob VecchioneAug 26, 2017The Union Club
Best DJ Ever!
We had DJ Dan Cormier (DC) do the music at our wedding, and got compliments left and right from our guests about how great he was! Our literal worst nightmare was that nobody would want to dance, but DJ DC played the perfect songs and our dance floor was consistently packed! He was very responsive to our conversations about songs we loved and definitely didn’t want to be played. Overall, we highly recommend him, as well as Cleveland Music Group overall! Very nice people to work with.Caroline and XavierAug 19, 2017Holden Arboretum (Lantern Court)
DJ DC did a great job! The dance floor was still full at midnight. He did a great job of balancing the music, reading the crowd and keeping the party going. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!Sarah Busch & Steve MichalakAug 12, 2017Windows on the River
DJ Dan made our wedding reception a dream come true!
DJ Dan was very professional from the beginning. He was easy to contact and answer any questions we had regarding the big day. On the day of the wedding, he made sure everything ran smoothly for the entrance, then he quickly got the party started as promised. Our guests all had a wonderful time enjoying the music and dancing, from the little kids to the grandparents. Dan was instrumental in our day being absolutely perfect. He even made us CDs of all the music played throughout the event so we can have those memories forever. Thank you so much Dan for going above and beyond!Jessica Lawrence and Michael CarterMay 6, 2017Hyatt Regency at the Arcade - Cleveland, OH
Rocked the house… all night!!!
Guests thought the wedding was awesome. DJ DC is a great entertainer who knows how to bring the energy while still making the focus of the event all about the bride and groom. Everyone I talked to had great things to say about him. They also loved the music. I really could not have been happier. Grateful for Dan and his passion to make it an awesome event for everyone.Ross & Susie WalthallOct 29, 2016The Club at Hillbrook
Everyone loved the music and raved about DJ DC. He kept people on the dance floor and was so organized. Thank you so much for helping to make our night perfect!Jess & Tim AtorDec 10, 2016The Bertram
We used Cleveland Music Group to provide our DJ, ceremony guitarist, and uplighting for the reception area. I have to say, I have been truly impressed with all aspects of this organization from the first contact through to the last minute of our reception. My contact was extremely helpful with guiding me in choosing a DJ and guitarist, and even the website was a great tool to watch videos of the options. They also worked within our limited budget to provide the lighting which really made the ambiance of the entire venue so breathtaking.
In addition, DJ DC went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a great time and that Dennis and I got everything we wanted out of our special night. Multiple guests came up to me and told me how awesome the music was! Thank you for everything!Angela and Dennis RabbittsNov 5, 2016Terrace Club at Progressive Field
Fantastic wedding DJ
We had fantastic service for our wedding! Our DJ (Dan Cormier) was wonderful. Service was personalized and accommodating. We couldn’t be happier for choosing DJ DC!!Irene Link (bride)Jul 16, 2016Glidden House
A perfect evening & a packed dance floor
Our wedding was an absolutely blast, and DJ DC was a HUGE part of that! He kept everyone out on the dance floor until midnight and played a great mix of music genres that appealed to all our guests, no matter their age. His MC skills helped the night run smooth. My husband and I were confident after meeting with him that he was our guy. He was always responsive to questions and accommodated all our requests – before and during the wedding. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.Samantha & Jeffrey ScmidtNov 7, 2015The Banquet Center at St. Noel
DJ DC Rocks!
This company was by far one of the most PROFESSIONAL to work with of all the vendors we hired for our special day. From beginning to end, we truly felt like we were in good hands not only picking Cleveland Music Group, but specifically DJ DC (aka Dan Cormier). We were VERY picky about the DJ for our event. We had been to weddings where, let’s just say you realize how important the DJ is at the end of the day.
Since we were planning our wedding from across the country, it was a challenge to find the right fit for us. We just didn’t have the time or luxury of interviewing countless DJs before our wedding day. We really appreciated that Cleveland Music Group is hip with the times—showcasing each DJ they have to offer with personalized individual webpages, complete with a highlight video for each DJ to give you an idea of their personality, style, and approach. EXTREMELY helpful. Did not find this sort of info on other DJ sites.
As soon as we met Dan in person, we were sold. His outstanding voice, laid back personality, and can-do attitude instantly put us at ease. He understood our needs without much explanation at all. He was the first DJ we met with, and we booked him immediately! The day of our wedding was amazing. He accommodated all of our requests—much more work on his end—and was easily able to adapt to any last minute changes during the course of the evening. He kept us up to speed on where the night was headed—knew exactly what to anticipate when—and adjusted things accordingly. He clearly knew what he was doing and always kept things professional. We got sooo many compliments from friends and family how great the music was. The dance floor was packed all night long. Can’t imagine our reception without DJ DC! Thank you!!Mona Witherington & David UrbanOct 10, 2015Sun Valley Banquet & Party Center (Chagrin Falls)
Professional Service, Very Happy!
Working with CLE Music Group was first class from start to finish. We had an onsite meeting to start to learn about their offerings and it was great to work with a group that had so many options to fit our needs. We selected DJ DC as our DJ at the wedding and couldn’t be happier. He made sure all our guests were happy and filling the dance floor. I was also impressed how professional he was prior to the wedding via emails and phone conversations. He was insistent on making everything perfect – and it was! Mission accomplished!Sarah & Chad DavidsonSep 19, 2015The Old Courthouse
DJ DC could not have been any better. He was the highlight of our wedding. My guests raved, we loved our music, he was phenomenal. I will recommend him for as long as he’s DJing! Great personality, so easy to work with! Forever grateful.Mr. & Mrs. Tj ShandleAug 29, 2015The metropolitan at the 9
A wedding to be remembered!
DJ DC did a wonderful job with our wedding reception. He listened carefully to our preferences and was very accommodating with all of our requests. He used his knowledge and flare to keep the party going all night long. We had so many guests on the dance floor – including family members we have never seen dance at a wedding before! It was a party to remember!!Chad and Jaclyn WiestAug 8, 2015The InterContinental Cleveland
DJ DC did an amazing job coordinating the music for our Wedding and Reception. He kept the evening moving along, the dance floor hopping and the bride and groom, happy! Our guests are raving about how fun the night was. The nieces and nephews danced their legs off. The music was fun, diverse, and brought in all the guests to dance at some point. We are still smiling at the success of our Wedding Event and owe a good portion of that to DJ DC!Susan (Ross) & Guy WitheriteAug 1, 2015Aurora Inn Hotel and Event Center
DJ DC is amazing!
I could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. From the first contact I had with Cleveland Music Group I was sold. Every time I spoke with someone there from choosing the DJ to then speaking with our chosen DJ it just got me more excited for the wedding! DJ DC was friendly and so energetic from the getgo. He was so easy to work with and did an amazing job keeping the party going. He played the perfect music selections for each aspect of the reception and definitely had people out on the dance floor all night long! I would HIGHLY recommend him and Cleveland Music Group.Elizabeth and Charlie SchlossMar 7, 2015Marriott at Key Center

The Sapphire Duo’s violin + cello music was the perfect touch for our romantic outdoor wedding. DJ DC (Dan Cormier) did a great job hosting the reception party as both DJ and emcee.
