John DolanDJ, Emcee
John Dolan, known to the masses as DJ Dolo, has been rocking dance floors across the country and beyond for over ten years. His diverse cultural upbringing helped craft an understanding, appreciation, and working knowledge of every genre of music, which allows him to perform over 300 shows a year for a wide range of audiences. From intimate celebrity parties to entertaining crowds of thousands, DJ Dolo prides himself on catering each event to the uniqueness of the client and/or crowd.
As the resident DJ for nightlife powerhouse Top Shelf Entertainment, Dolo maintains full-type employment playing music. He currently holds a “happy hour” residency at Julep Bar, the upscale hotspot for the “who’s who” of Boston’s Financial District, where everyday from 5- 8pm he spins a mix of laid-back funk, jazz, house, and older classics to set the mood. By nighttime, the vibe becomes high-energy as he makes his way to one of his several bi-weekly New England residencies, including West End Johnnies, Whiskey Republic (Providence), and the club set at Julep Bar. He may spin anything from a strictly house set, to Top 40, rock ‘n roll, hip hop or a mix thereof, depending on the specific calling of the event. Every other weekend is spent traveling to various cities across the country for guest performances. Over the last year, he headlined at clubs in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Dominican Republic, Jacksonville, and the famous annual “South by Southwest” event in Austin, Texas with DJs from all over the world.

Testimonials John Dolan
C-zone is amazing! I wasn't sure if I should have a band or DJ for my wedding. I ended up going with a DJ, which was one of the best decisions I made for the wedding. From the time dinner ended, nobody left the dance floor. John played hit after hit and knew how to play to his audience. His transitions were flawless and everyone said they could have danced for 4 more hours. He was easy to work with, professional and was all around just on top of it. I would recommend this company and John to anyone and everyone.

John Dolan DJ'd our wedding on 9/24/16 at Saphire Estate in Sharon & he was beyond amazing! Our guests never left the dance floor & neither did I! He also perfectly cued all the music I chose for the ceremony, reception entrances, cake cutting etc! C Zone is the best!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about C-Zone Entertainment and our DJ, John Dolan. We live out of state and had a few conversations with John and emailed back and forth. John really listened to what we wanted and incorporated everything. He did not try to push any of his styles or ideas on me but offered amazing suggestions when I was stressing about making decisions. From the ceremony music (which was all his suggestions because I was stuck) to the reception dancing everything was perfect. We asked John for the best dance party of our lives and he more than delivered. John read the room and if a song didn't seem to go over well, he transitioned into something else. Our friends and family are still telling us a month later they had so much fun and never wanted to leave the dance floor and how amazing our DJ was. I only wish the reception lasted longer! Simply the best!
