Top Hat Entertainment formed in 1996, when Scott LeCours, Daren Cassani and Damon Brink decided to join forces to create a DJ company that was responsive to the needs of the client. As we have grown, we have added several DJs (many who had prior disc jockey experience working for other companies), and established a full-time, walk-in office in South Burlington, Vermont to appropriately handle the wishes of our clients. We personalize each event, and work hard to make sure that everything is perfect! Contact us today with any questions about your wedding, company or private party.
Daren started Top Hat Entertainment in 1996 with Damon Brink and Scott LeCours. Damon and Scott previously worked at Supersounds DJ company, and Daren ran his own small DJ business. In 2004, Daren's wife Jennifer Cassani bought out Scott LeCours' share of the business, as Scott decided to concentrate on other endeavors. Daren still DJs quite often, especially playing music at many Vermont weddings throughout the year. Scott and Damon, though no longer owners, still DJ many weddings and parties as well!
