"The most engaged and responsive vendor that we worked with for our wedding."

"DJ Elwood is meticulous - he starts thinking of the perfect set for you months before your wedding."

"There were points when literally every guest was dancing, whether they were 20 years old or 80 years old. He played danceable music that you rarely hear at a wedding, mixed together in a seemless flow of energy."

DJ Sean Elwood is a native New Yorker, raised in Manhattan. “When I was growing up” says Sean “It wasn’t unusual to hear The Clash right alongside a Hip Hop or R&B record, and that sensibility continues to inform my DJ style”


Sean got his start working in downtown clubs and lounges, and held residencies at Bar XVI, SX 137, and Katra. He has also spun at APT, Opus 22, Southpaw, and numerous other NYC venues. Sean has also played numerous corporate and charity events, but is increasingly focused on weddings.
Sean has been DJing weddings in and around NYC for over 10 years and is now serving the greater Kansas City area.

Several years ago Sean met and married a lovely woman from the Midwest, who gave him two beautiful daughters, and forced him to get his drivers license. Fully insured, with his own car and equipment, DJ Elwood is prepared to “bring the party” and strives to make every wedding perfect.

We are so thrilled we selected Sean to DJ our wedding! We purposefully had two dance floors at our reception and they were completely full the entire evening. We had tons of people still on the dance floor when our reception ended, and it's all thanks to Sean! He was great to work with, was an amazing emcee for the evening, kept the reception on schedule and was worth every penny. Highly recommend!

We had DJ Elwood as our DJ for our wedding at The Guild on 8/16/14. We couldn't have asked for anything more from Sean and were more than happy with the service. One of the most important aspects of our wedding was the dance party which was even better than we were hoping for. DJ Elwood was great and we couldn't have asked for anything better. We had people making music requests and other demands (turn lights up, turn lights off, more bass, less bass etc) and he was more than accommodating to all of our demands. Great to work with throughout the whole process and would definitely reccomend to others.

Sean did a fantastic job! He was very professional and easy to work with. We gave him a general idea of our music tastes and some must-plays. He made sure to get all of our must-play songs in even though our dancing time was a bit shortened. The dance floor was packed the entire time and everyone loved the music. Could not have asked for a better DJ at our wedding!

I really cannot say enough about Sean- our experience with him, from start to finish was absolutely perfect. I cannot stress how absolutely wonderful our experience was.
He took special care to include songs that were important to us, including finding my random indie rock requests and college favorites- literally kept the dance party going until our reception ended at 1AM when we had to drag people off of the dance floor. He included some amazing personalized touches that really meant so much to me and my guy.
It's hard to find a DJ that is cool, you know? Sean has a great mix of being commanding, without being too-much. It's the worst to go to a wedding where the DJ is cheesy or spends too much time on the mic or is just obnoxious. And it literally happens all. the. time. Sean SEAMLESSLY helps your reception move and keeps the energy level high w/o being at all obtrusive to the process. He is great w/ follow-up, super easy to get in touch with and incredibly flexible- he worked with my dad and uncles on the sound that they used to perform bluegrass at the reception between his sets and was just so cool about it. It's really great to have the memories of our reception set to such a great soundtrack- cannot, cannot, cannot recommend him enough.

From the very start DJ Elwood was so responsive and helpful. I could text, call or email him with any questions and he responded right away. He was in charge of the music for both our ceremony and reception. We got so many compliments on the music for both. We have a more conservative family but our friends like to get down on the dance floor so we wanted to make sure both crowds would have a great time. Both our friends and family had a wonderful time. We're still hearing about how great the music was. In my opinion the music can make or break the entire night. The night couldn't have gone more perfect! He is so organized which was something else that was important for me. I felt completely comfortable putting our wedding day in his hands. During the reception DJ Elwood played whatever was requested as long as he knew it was ok with us. If he had any questions he was sure to ask me or my husband which I greatly appreciated. I would recommend DJ Elwood to anyone looking for a great DJ for their wedding!

Sean single-handedly made our wedding a huge hit! We had countless compliments about the DJ during and weeks after our event.

He worked with us through the entire process and made it painless. We had an extensive list of do-not-plays and Sean honored those requests. We asked that he not do anything "cheesy" or "theatrical" but simply emcee the evening and he did that with professionalism and class.

Sean knew exactly what to do to keep our night lively and our guests constantly entertained with the music. He cut off our first dance, mother-son, father-daughter dance at the PERFECT time as to not make it drag out and bore our guests. We were extremely happy with his knowledge of when to move things along.

There was a specific instance where our guests had requested a certain song(s) on our do-not-play list multiple times. Sean expressed this to us and asked our permission to play said songs. We, of course, defaulted to his expertise and allowed the song to play...I have no problems admitting I was wrong and the dance floor was full!

I cannot understand why someone would use any other DJ. Our guests are still talking about how fun our wedding was, and I have no doubt in my mind that we have DJ Elwood to thank for making our night such a success.

Book him. Immediately.

Sean was an awesome DJ! Not only is he just a really cool, laid back guy and easy to work with, but the music at our wedding was perfect for us. He's extremely versatile and is willing to work with you to make sure all your favorites are played and then sticks with the music type you like throughout the night while weaving in music that's perfect for all ages as well. Our dance party was awesome and got started early and remained strong the whole night because of Sean's dj-ing skills!

DJ Elwood made our wedding AMAZING! He was there throughout the planning process to help answer any questions we had. We wanted music that would have our guests up and dancing the whole night, but also music that would appeal to anyone--no matter the age. He had JUST the right mix of music! Everyone was up and dancing the whole night, just like we wanted. So many people complimented the DJ and said it was the most fun they have had in a long time. We would change nothing about our experience with DJ Elwood and recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ who cares about your experience and truly wants to make you happy on your big day!
