A few words from happy clients



“James and Rew kept our wedding reception poppin! I was connected to them through a recommendation from my maid of honor and I am so glad we chose Vinyl Countdown as our wedding DJ. They had us give them a list of our favorite and least favorite songs to know what to play & avoid. James and Rew integrated other music that we loved based on our tastes. They were responsive, timely, and entertaining. I was very particular about the ceremony music and timing and they didn’t bat an eye. They accommodated us and always kept an open mind through the planning process. I’d share photos of our wedding reception but the world just isn’t ready for that content. Trust me and just hire them!”



“My husband and I used Vinyl Countdown to DJ our wedding this past July. They were fantastic!!! Not only were Andrew and James amazing to work and collaborate with on the front side, but they were constantly in the know of what song to play next to keep the party going, the whole night! Our friends, who came all the way from NY to celebrate our wedding, said that our reception was one of the best parties they had been to in a long time! Vinyl Countdown is a MUST for your next event! :)”



“Working with Vinyl Countdown was truly one of the great joys of planning my wedding. I’m so glad I found them, and booking them was one of the best decisions I made during the process. They are so professional, so kind and fun. Rew and James were always responsive, offering solid advice while always being open to providing exactly what we wanted. They both have excellent taste in music and know what makes a good party. And they gracefully and quickly handled some unexpected last-minute changes on the day. Rew is an extremely talented DJ who actually mixes live — not something to be taken for granted! He did an incredible job at throwing us an epic dance party, mixing many of our favorite songs and giving them surprising twists. It exceeded my expectations. Our guests rushed to the dance floor as soon as he started and stayed up there all night. If you are looking to have an amazing party in Maine, do not hesitate to book Vinyl Countdown.”



“DJ Rew is an absolute professional. He met with us prior to our wedding to discuss our vision for the event and musical tastes. My wife is Turkish and wanted to include traditional Turkish songs into a playlist that would get everyone on the dance floor. Long story short, he crushed it! There wasn’t a moment when the dance floor wasn’t about to bring the place down for the entire night.”



“DJ Rew is a quadruple threat. His reputation as one of the best DJs in Portland, Maine’s storied hip-hop community, has been solidified for nearly a decade. His ability to cut, scratch, and manipulate records is among the best. His intuitive, natural ability to rock a party (or a dancefloor or a concert or a wedding) has left him ranked alongside the legendary DJ Jon as one of New England’s most respected, most proven DJs. However, Rew is so much more than a DJ. His under-the-radar work as a rapper on his debut album “Plan B,” prove his talent as an emcee as well. Additionally, Rew is also well respected amongst producers for his work producing beats for other artists as well as his live performances as half of the Portland-based drums-and-samplers duo The Odd Couple. In the group, Rew notoriously operates two MPC samplers simultaneously, in lock-step with former Whitcomb drummer Mark Sayer. In all facets of his skill sets, as a DJ, rapper, producer, and band member, Rew operates at a professional level unmatched by most of his peers.”

Party / Life Event


“DJ Rew played my surprise 30th birthday party this Spring and I was beyond satisfied. There was an incredibly diverse group of partygoers and everyone danced until the club made us leave.”

Party / Life Event


“We had a 90s party. Everybody played their part and DJ Rew was no different. His playlist included the best of 90s Hip Hop and Dance as we requested and he slayed it. The music makes a party and our party was epic.”



“We hired Vinyl Countdown for our 9/21 wedding and are so happy we did! James and Rew were extremely professional, including visiting our ceremony and reception site a few months in advance and keeping in touch leading up to the big day. We loved the approach James and Rew took to personalize our playlist and received so many compliments on the music.”
