Ryan Gavin is the Mainah!
Owner, Event Producer & Wedding DJ
On the radio and at events across New England, Ryan has been providing top-rated entertainment services for years. You might recognize his voice too – Ryan can be heard on radio stations and streaming music apps all over the US every day, and he’s been a featured personality on some of New England’s biggest radio stations, like WJBQ Q97.9, 103.7 The Peak, Q96.1, and X1023.FM. Ryan hosts a Top 40 morning show on the Gulf Coast (from his studio in Maine!), a night show on Cape Cod, and he’s also worked with brands like 94.9 WHOM and 97.5 WOKQ. Off the air, Ryan has used his 15+ years of broadcast and event experience to help hundreds of couples plan amazing weddings and unforgettable celebrations. Most entertainment vendors in Maine are only part-time DJs, but Ryan is a professional media personality and MC with the skill to deliver a wedding reception that fits your vision and style. As the owner of Maine Vibe, Ryan leads our professional team of DJs and works with all of our couples during the planning process to produce perfect ceremonies and receptions. Once each wedding is planned to perfection, our team of day-of wedding DJs steps in and delivers the magic of a fantastic party on wedding day.
All of our wedding DJs are professional broadcasters and media professionals, hand-picked by our team for their unmatched skill, experience and professionalism:
Brian James is the Guru!
When it comes to weddings in Maine, it just doesn’t get any better than the legendary party guru rocking your dance floor! One of Maine’s most recognizable broadcast personalities, Brian hosted the afternoon show on the world famous WBLM for more than 30 years, entertaining listeners from Bangor to Boston every day. Brian has programmed radio stations too, like 94.3 WCYY and the #1-rated WTOS, where he’s now the program director and afternoon drive host. Brian is still one of Maine’s most sought-after wedding DJs and MCs, having performed for hundreds of couples since the 1980s.
Dominic Lavoie is the Musician!
Not only is Dom a well-known Maine radio personality with years of experience on stations like WBLM, WCLZ and WCYY, he’s an incredibly accomplished musician in his own right, performing at ceremonies and wedding receptions across Maine for years. Dom is the real deal… He can serenade your guests with your choice of live music, and then heat up the dance floor with his DJ skills when the sun goes down! Originally from the County, Dom has played at weddings and events all over New England.
Tom Doucette is the Swiss Army Knife!
Also from the County is Tommy D! For the past 20 years, Tom has played various instruments in several local bands across the great state of Maine. You also may have seen Tommy D(J) in Portland’s Old Port, where he’s performed at some of Maine’s biggest venues. In addition to performing at weddings and private events, Tom has served as a board member for a non-profit focusing on music education, and is a re-occurring celebrity judge for Maine’s Got Talent.

Matt Perry is the Engineer!
Matt Perry is the real deal… a sound engineer, a musician, and a fantastic wedding DJ! Matt has performed at weddings across New England for years, and he’s one of the most highly sought-after talents in the industry. When he’s not running sound for big shows in Portland or producing audio projects for national publishers, he’s mixing beat to beat on your dance floor! Matt has been a featured DJ at weddings from Boston to Bangor, and he’s held residencies at some of Portland’s biggest nightclubs. Matt also has extensive radio experience, making him a pro MC!
Justin Wiley is the Pro!

Off the dance floor, Justin has a deep background in computer science and business, so you can count on his know-how and experience to make your wedding day come together seamlessly. As a former collegiate athlete and coach, he also has the credentials of a natural hype man, so get ready to party!
Erica Wozniak is the Pet Wrangler!
Mom to Ollie the Doodle (our mascot), as well as several other fluffy cohabitants, Erica works with our team on event strategy, logistics, and the design of client-facing tools like our planning website. Erica mostly works behind the scenes, supporting our performance staff and our office operations. She’s been known to make a rare appearance on the dance floor at destination and resort weddings, too!
Annie Snook is the Party!
Annie Snook is a country girl. Originally from Tennessee (you’ll be able to tell once she starts talkin’), she’s hosted radio shows on country stations all over New England, from the WPOR 101.9 morning show in Portland, to afternoon drive on 103.7 The Peak, heard across 5 states and Canada! Annie loves to entertain, have fun, celebrate positivity, and she’s hosted events and parties across southern Maine for several years. You can also hear Annie on 99.9 The Wolf!
