If you have chosen the Distillery in Toronto to celebrate your upcoming event, you are likely someone with an eye for style and an appreciation for quality service. We love working with people who care about music, and want to have the best experience possible for their guests.


Allan and Danny are lifelong friends, connected both by the Toronto neighbourhood block they grew up as kids, and their passion for soulful music. Allan pursued the drums, playing in rock bands, while Danny pursued the saxophone, playing in jazz and funk bands. Their musical journeys naturally led them towards DJing, uniting them with a deep appreciation for genres of funk, soul, house and hip hop. In 2008, Allan and Danny officially took on the role as the Distillery DJs under the encouragement of the DRC events and management team.


“We started spinning weekly patio parties and corporate functions, and grew into a year-round event and wedding team for the historic district. During our time as preferred music curators, we have been part of high-end celebrity weddings, product launches, company holiday parties, open houses, student parties, and just about any other event that requires a prolific soundtrack. Last year, we proudly provided the soundtrack for the Brazilian House every night for the duration of the Pan Am Games.

“We feel at home when we are at an event within the Distillery, and look forward to taking you on a musical journey for your next function.”


Here are just some of the recent reviews from our Distillery clients like you:

Having worked with many DJs in my professional career, I must admit that Allan is my #1 choice for any chic event. Allan’s outgoing personality, kindness and genuine respect made working with him an absolute pleasure. Allan created a playlist that suited our venue, theme/event, and he drew from a wide range of music that kept our guests on their feet all night long. He’s professional, classy and understands what it means to provide impeccable service and a memorable time.” – Natale & Andrew, Boiler House Loft

“You knew exactly what to play to keep the party going all night!  From the first dance to last call, the dance floor was never empty.  Danny, thank you so much for providing the soundtrack for the best night of our lives!” – Laura and Mark, Archeo

“Your ability to transform the vibe of the evening was seamless. You exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to use you time and time again! Your knowledge of our past events and ability to read the crowd was outstanding.” – Joanna Ruuskanen, Street Capital, Archeo (Danny pictured above)

We had Allan DJ our wedding this year and he did a fantastic job.  He was the consummate professional: making sure that all the music we wanted was played while also taking creative licensing to mix in other music that perfectly fit the mood and more importantly, us. Alan understood what we wanted and delivered 100%.  We cannot say enough about how great a job he did and how much he contributed to making our wedding the best night of our lives.” – Rob & Guin Shore, Fermenting Cellar

Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our wedding! Danny was a natural at reading the crowd and making sure everyone both young and old had a good time. All of the guests enjoyed both his music and his great personality!” – Erica & Scott, BHL


From the first meeting all the way up to the day of our wedding, DJ Allan Pynn was simply fantastic. The ceremony went off without a hitch and the song choices throughout the reception until the end of the night were flawless. We couldn’t even keep track of how many people kept saying how awesome the music was – everyone was super impressed, and having an amazing time. If you’re looking for a true professional, someone who is a master of their craft, and wants to make the music of your day matter, you won’t regret choosing Allan Pynn. Period.” – Kelly & JP, Fermenting Cellar

I just wanted to send you a note to say THANK YOU for your service on August 2nd. David and I couldn’t have been happier with the whole day and night and you were a very significant part of that.  Several times throughout the night guests complimented me on my DJ choice and asked what playlist I had provided to you because your music choices were so perfect. I enjoyed declaring that I hadn’t provided any playlists or anything. It was all you! Your cues for the recessional and introductions were seamless and your help and coordination with my Maid of Honour for her surprise songs was incredible (and greatly appreciated). Thank you again for a wonderful night!!” – Veronica & David, Archeo

From the moment we met Allan, we were blown away with his professionalism, flexibility, and enthusiasm to make our wedding an amazing experience that we would remember forever. An he did just that. Thank you Allan for going above and beyond. You are awesome.” – Shannon & Arthur, Fermenting Cellar
