John Dolan DJ, 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
We used C-Zone as our entertainment for our wedding in May. John Dolan was our DJ and he was absolutely amazing. From the beginning helping us through the basics and using their online planning tool (which made life so much easier) he was available for whatever little questions we had. We also appreciated John’s ability to cater to our wide variety of musical interest. We gave him little direction and said to just read the crowd – we were so impressed. John had everyone on the dance floor all night long. All ages were rocking out and danced the night away, it was exactly what we wanted and pictured. He was so much fun and you could see his passion for what he does as he was so engaged with the crowd all night. We cannot thank John Dolan and C-Zone enough for ultimately setting the tone and atmosphere for our wedding day – it was perfect! Much Love, Megan and Scott

We absolutely loved working with Greg, Diane, and the rest of the team at C-Zone! We received so many compliments on the violinist we had during cocktail hour and a ton of guests have asked for DJ John Dolan’s contact info! He kept our guests on the dance floor ALL NIGHT! Thank you so much for everything!

C-Zone Entertainment was absolutely amazing!! We were fortunate enough to have them involved for the music for our entire wedding day – an acoustic guitarist for our ceremony, the jazz trio for our cocktail hour and John Dolan as the DJ for our reception. The guitarist and jazz trio did an excellent job setting the mood for the ceremony and cocktail hour. John was awesome! He was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. The online portal is such a great tool and made things incredibly easy. Picking the “must plays” and “play if possibles” were some of the most fun parts of our wedding planning process. John had the dance floor packed the entire night and many of our guests have told us how great they thought he was! Overall we cannot recommend C-Zone highly enough (and especially DJ Dolan)!! Also, communicating with Diane throughout everything was great. She was wonderful in making sure our big day went smoothly!
