My husband and I spent a lot of time trying to find the best DJ for our wedding but after meeting Scott Silz we knew we found the right DJ. Scott is a true professional. He was very responsive and took the time to meet with us a couple of times and was very helpful. We wanted lots of people dancing and that’s exactly what we got. Our friends and family stayed right up to the last song. It was truly a special night. I’m so glad we chose Hot Mix Entertainment.

We planned our wedding long distance and relied on referrals from our friends in Chicago for a DJ Company. Scott and Hot Mix was it! Thrilled with the entire process and experience. Highly recommend.

I was really excited by the large variety of music the DJ came with. Whatever we requested was available! I was not expecting that. The DJ did an amazing job. Very professional. Arrived early to set up and everything was good to go by the time my guests arrived. He nailed my entrance. I’m really proud he was my DJ. The whole crew did an excellent job!

What can I say about Scott except that he totally crushed it at our wedding and kept the dancefloor packed all night long? We had a destination Austin wedding and no DJ was good enough for our tastes except Silz so we dragged him all the way down to Texas – a choice we could not be happier with. The music was amazing, he did an insane job with the uplighting – when the lights were lowered, the place looked incredible! – and his photobooth was a highlight to us and our guests. Oliver (who manned the photobooth) was a true professional and had amazing ideas for our friends that made their excitement over picture taking even better. All we wanted at our wedding was a total party and he kept it that way all night long!

Hot Mix Entertainment far exceeded our expectations. We knew they were great when we hired them because we saw them at a friends wedding. They were so professional and went above and beyond every step of the way. Thank you to our DJ Scott for making our night magical! Even our catering sales person commented on what a great DJ we had.
