Scott did an AMAZING job at our wedding. We met with him twice to hash out all the details. He is extremely professional and knows his stuff. He was able to help us with some musical choices too when we were stuck. We also got the up lights and photo booth from him. Everything was exceptional! Our guest are still mentioning to us that this was the first wedding they have been to where the dance floor was packed from beginning to the end of the last song played. I would recommend him to anyone.

We started shopping for our DJ 1½ years prior to our big day thinking it would be a huge undertaking because we are really picky about music. Once we met Scott it was a perfect fit! Talent, professional and everything we wanted. Our night was magnificent!

The moment we decided on a venue, we started looking for a wedding DJ. A girlfriend of mine recommended Hot Mix Entertainment and we are SO GLAD she did. When we took a look at Hot Mix’s music selections, we realized right away that they were way more than just the “same old wedding DJ” at our reception. Scott was incredible. Thanks Hot Mix for being more than just “DJs”, you brought the party to life!
