Stephen Scott was our wedding reception DJ, and I highly recommend him! From our initial meeting with Stephen, we could tell that he was extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and full of ideas as to how to make the evening run smoothly. As we worked through our DJ questionnaire over the following few months, we were able to make decisions as to how the night would flow best for us, and worked with Stephen to customize our song choices, order of events, and timeline. He was helpful in nailing down the timeline and was easy to work with when we made week-of-wedding additions to formal songs, as well as last minute "must play" song requests. Stephen respected our "do not play" list and worked in our dedication songs perfectly. He was invaluable to have on hand during the reception, as I never knew what time it was; Stephen kept us on schedule and did a great job with all announcements, even helping arrange our wedding wand departure and getting it "just so." I asked him on the spot to shorten our mother-daughter group dance, which was minutes away, and he was able to do it, making a very happy bride even happier. :) Stephen was always professional and fun during the night, keeping the dance floor alive with a great mix of oldies blending into more contemporary music. The lightshow, which comes with his package, was a wonderful addition to the dance floor (and looks great in pictures!) We really enjoyed working with Stephen and highly recommend him to other couples. Thank you Stephen, for helping to make our wedding day stress-free and fun! Everyone had a blast!
I can't say enough great things about Stephen! He was a pleasure to work with.
From our first meeting, I felt instantly calmed because it was obvious that he knew exactly what he was doing.
We went over my favorite types of music, the type of reception I was having, and from there he really took over!
Closer to the wedding, you fill out some paperwork regarding songs you'll want for your entrance, garter toss, etc. I also attached a list of songs and bands that I loved to give him a frame of reference, though it was hardly needed. He completely got what I was going for and put together the most amazing playlist. Everything from Etta James & Van Morrison to Robin Thicke & today's dance songs.
My favorite thing about Steven was how hands-on he was with the reception. Instead of just sitting behind the DJ booth and playing music, he was interactive and read the crowd. When dinner was winding down and a possible lull was coming on, he touched base with me and suggested a cake cutting or toast. He really kept the pace going and there was never a dull moment! The music reached out to not only the younger people, but also the older demographic, so everyone was on the dance floor. By the last song, my husband was crowd-surfing!
Steven is professional and accountable. There was never a time when I had to reach out to him, he always was on top of his game and emailing me & setting up meetings. It was nice to have a reliable and trustable vendor in a time that is so chaotic for a bride!
Thank you, Steven! - T & D
DJ Stephen Scott is as skilled & talented a DJ as he is punctual, professional, kind & courteous!! Not only did he spend over 2 hours consulting with me on the phone (as I am based in Wilmington and he in Raleigh) to discuss my musical needs for my wedding day but on the day of he even helped coordinate my guests to congregate for a special bubble "send-off" that we had added to our timeline of events the day of my wedding. We couldn't hire a wedding coordinator due to financial reasons but he ensured that the reception flowed beautifully. As a professional musician myself, I have high expectations but he exceeded all of my standards! He is energetic, fun as well as articulate & attentive so he is able to MC your party with the utmost ability. He graciously took requests from my guests for special songs they wanted played with no fuss or attitude & absolutely kept the party going all night long!! His light show was AMAZING & my guests are still talking about how beautiful & ambient it made my reception look & feel. I would recommend DJ Stephen Scott for all of your DJing needs be them bridal, corporate or some other time of private event/party!!! DJ Stephen ROCKS!!!
Stephen Scott was a professional from our first meeting til the last moment of our wedding evening. What a delight to work with! He has an amazing encyclopedia of music in his head, had prepared suggestion lists for those special songs (when we couldn't come up with them on our own), and truly directed the wedding and the rehearsal. He was on time, well groomed and prepared. Wow! We will usehim again and recommend him often. Stephen made our "special day" worry-free!
DJ Stephen Scott did an awesome job. He was very user friendly, both before and during our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for anything more and would hire him again in a heartbeat.
Being the mother of the bride at the young at heart age of 51, my calves were so sore for two days from all the wonderful dancing music Stephen Scott provided as the DJ for my daughter's reception. The large dance floor was loaded with people the whole time b/c of Stephen and the music he played. From my 10 and 12 year old nieces to my 79 year old in-laws, friends and family of all ages danced on into the night having a wonderful time. I heard people say they had never been to a reception where so many people stayed and danced. As you can probably gather, I highly recommend Stephen Scott as a DJ!
Stephen Scott was the most phenomenal DJ. He has a knack for playing the right song at the right time. People danced at the reception from the moment it began until the moment it ended. I have been to a ton of weddings these past two summers and can honestly say this was best party out of all the receptions I've been to thanks to the music provided by Stephen Scott. I HIGHLY recommend his services! You will be impressed by his quality and ability to make the party come alive!
I highly recommend Stephen Scott. He is an excellent MC and DJ. Throughout the entire process he was professional, sincere, knew exactly what he was doing, and you could tell that he loves what what he was does.
He has a detailed contract and asks you to present him with songs you want to hear and he delivers. He also gives his input, but isn't too pushy if you have a certain vision.
Book it with Stephen, you won't be sorry!
DJ Stephen Scott was quick with responses, easy to work with, great for our budget (which was key as we were on a tight one), and made us feel like we were in good hands. He gave us WONDERFUL suggestions for everything from our guests being seated to the receptionâ€¦which was great as we don't plan weddings everyday! He really helped us in-vision our wedding and what we wanted it to look like! But when he gave suggestions he was mindful of what we wanted and didn't push us. But we probably went with about 98% of his suggestions anyway. : )
At the wedding he came up to us multiple times to see where we were with dinner and speaking to our guests and when we wanted to do the toasts, cake, etc. This was VERY helpful, since as the bride and groom you have a lot to do and the time can easily get away from you. We didnâ€™t have a professional coordinator, so it was great to have him there checking in with us to make sure we were staying on track, but not being pushy about it. Then it was time for the party!! Let's just say DJ Stephen Scott rocked it out! The dance floor was packed and everyone was having a blast! My friends and family were coming up to me the whole night saying "Oh my gosh this DJ is awesome!". And they are still telling me that now! Everyone had such a great time and we all danced the night away!!
I would 100% recommend this DJ to anyone and everyone. He is not only a wonderful DJ, but a wonderful person that I could tell wasn't there to just make some money, but he wanted to make sure we had a wonderful wedding and a rocking time...and we did. After meeting with him we felt we had made a great choice for our wedding DJ...and now after our wedding, we are still saying the same thing.
Thanks again DJ Stephen Scott!!
Stephen Scott was amazing! He was actually booked that day, so he set us up with a colleague of his. They both met with us a few times to learn exactly what we wanted for a DJ. They definitely delivered! The DJ kept us on track all night and played exactly what we wanted to hear. He was very professional and made announcements when necessary and otherwise just kept the music rolling. It was a great night! All the guest raved about how great the DJ was! I highly suggest Stephen Scott!
Stephen provided more than just music for my wedding. He gave me much needed ideas to help me visualize the actual ceremony, after ther ceremony, the first dance, and much much more that Brides don't think about because they don't plan weddings every day. The music that Stephen selected for my reception was based on the age group of the attendees. He was spot on! I don't think that there was one song that no one was dancing. Everyone had such a great time, and til this day(less than 2 weeks ago), people are still talking about how much fun it was. The music was the bonding agent for the entire day. Brides - don't think that a DJ is something to skimp on....It was well worth the price.
DJ Stephen rocked! From the first song to the last song, he put on an amazing show. After the first dance, he had the dance floor packed until the reception was over. Great at reading everyone at the party to know what to play next; excellent job at slowing it down and picking it back up. Was a fantastic emcee in keeping everything moving and making sure everyone had a great time. Very prepared and thorough. He made sure in advance how to pronounce everyone's name and was at the reception a good 3-4 hours before to get set up and make sure everything was perfect.
Thanks again, DJ Stephen!!!
Stephen did an AMAZING job putting together the music and lay out for my reception!! I could not have asked for anything more!!!
Thank you does not seem like enough. Stephen was very professional, personal and just plain awesome to work with. Everyone at the wedding had a blast because of him. A DJ can make or break a wedding/event, and picking Stephen to help us celebrate our special day was the PERFECT CHOICE!! If you are considering a DJ, at least meet with him! He had us at the first meeting!!! Not to mention, the pre-wedding gatherings were just as fun!! He personalized everything like he had known us for years!! Stephen, you are above board and it was a honor to work with you!!! Thank you for making our wedding day even more amazing!! BTW, you should also consider being a wedding planner :) FABULOUS-GREAT-AWESOME!!! J&B (smithfield) <3
Stephen and Rob were fabulous to work with. They have a very specific plan that helps ensure the evening runs smoothly. The bride and groom were able to use some unique music for different parts of the evening. They make every effort to include any specific requests that you have for music. We had a few last minute changes that were handled effortlessly. Professional, responsive and the quality of the sound and light show were fantastic. Thanks for helping to keep the dance floor full from the first song to the last.
Stephen was awesome! I was a stresscase bride and he kept me so calm on the big day. He is prepared, innovative with our unique music choices and professional. I would recommend him for any event!
Stephen was a pleasure to work with. He was very organized and professional and did an excellent job MCing our reception. He not only worked with us in planning the evening, he also had an excellent feel for what music would keep the guests on the dance floor! The result...a great time was had by all! You can't go wrong with Stephen!
Stephen was an awesome DJ for our wedding! He really knows music and was able to incorporate Arabic music that I provided to make our cultural wedding a success!
Stephen did a fantastic job with our wedding. He not only managed to keep everyone on their feet and dancing, but also blended in our own personal musical tastes (he even managed to sneak in a song from the Muppets). He was a perfect MC for the event and did a great job in helping us prepare by taking the time to talk us through our music choices for very step of our wedding and reception. If you want the bestt DJ and MC for your wedding, then go with Stephen!!!
Stephen was great! We couldn't be happier. He was very easy to work with and promptly responded to any of our questions. My husband is half St. Lucian, so he had some special musical requests that Stephen was able to make happen for us! Everybody kept talking about how great the music was after the event. I would definitely recommend him!
