From the first time we talked to and met with Sam Crawford we knew he was the perfect DJ for our wedding! He was very easy to talk to and work with throughout the entire process. We communicated over the phone, in person, and through e-mail and he was always quick to respond and willing to help anyway he could. At the wedding, he did the most outstanding job!! We had the best time, and the music was a big hit...our guests are still talking about it! We couldn't have had the most amazing wedding/party/celebration without Sam Crawford as our DJ! We highly recommend him for any event or occasion! :)

Sam is amazing -- an absolute pleasure to work with and will make your wedding reception fun and wonderful! He is extremely prompt with e-mails. There were three easy-to-fill-out online forms regarding song selection, timeline of events, and wedding party details. All of the details that we requested (e.g., songs played during particular reception moments, order to announce entrances and wedding speeches, etc.) were flawlessly executed. He also got our friends and family on the dance floor! :) We highly recommend Sam for your wedding reception!

If you're getting married in Pittsburgh, hire this man as your DJ! My husband and I have been to over a dozen weddings in the past two years and we can honestly say DJ Sam is the best we have ever encountered. He was extremely easy to deal with, he helped us compile music, was open to all suggestions/requests, and after giving him a brief description of the type of music we like, he was able to create the perfect playlist for the entire night. He kept the party going for 4 straight hours...nobody left the floor! Our guests even commented on how impressed they were with him. He really set the tone for the entire reception and we couldn't be more happy that we found DJ Sam to DJ our wedding. What an amazing night!!

We reached out to DJ Sam around six months before our wedding. He got back to us within a day of us requesting some more information. From day one Sam was incredibly responsive, helpful, and professional. It's weeks after our wedding and friends and family are still talking about how great the party was, and it is all because DJ Sam kept us rocking all night long.

We spoke with four different DJ's throughout the Pittsburgh area, but Sam was the easy pick after our initial introductory conversation. He asked about our lives, seemed more genuinely interested in our wedding than all other DJ's, and really got a feel for what we were looking for. After we officially booked him we thought we were just paying for music but he pretty much planned out the whole ceremony timeline, and also sent it around to our photographer and reception venue to get everything set in place.

It was easy to select the music that we wanted because he gave us access to a DJ Intelligence service that let us select the songs and pick "definitely play", "maybe play", and "do not play". We only selected 15 or so songs and let him use his judgement for the rest, which was a great decision - the guy brought the house down.

In addition to the music, Sam also made sure the night ran smoothly, getting everyone prepared for speeches, special dances, and the cake cutting. In the end, we don't think our wedding would have been considered such a success without the help and experience of DJ Sam. If you are getting married in the Pittsburgh area (he actually traveled to Somerset for us) then I would lock him in as your DJ asap. You will not be disappointed.

Sam was such an amazing DJ at our wedding. He really made the party and we received so many compliments on how awesome the music was. I would highly - HIGHLY recommend using him. Everyone at the wedding danced all night. There was not a single song that didn't have 50 people on the floor. He was extremely professional and responsive throughout the entire planning process.

Thank you Sam!

At our wedding, we wanted a party, and a party is what we got! DJ Sam was so helpful on keeping us on track of when and where we should be. He made it so easy for us which left us stress free, and more time to have fun! Everyone at our wedding reception had a blast dancing all night, and the older folks loved the Anniversary Dance. DJ Sam played all of our favorite songs and even found a couple songs that we wanted that he didn't originally have. DJ Sam went above and beyond what we had expected and we have already recommended him to some of our friends that are getting married soon! Thank you DJ Sam!

We first met DJ Sam in person, something only a few DJ's that we interviewed took the time to do rather than all over the phone. From there we felt very comfortable with the services, schedule, and value that he could provide. He had a very easy website to use to upload user picks, preferences, order of events, and likes dislikes of music. A week before he called to confirm the final details, the phonetics of names in the bridal party, Upon arriving at the reception we found him setup, all the uplighting set, and casual background music playing for our guests. From the moment we arrived to 6 hours later, DJ Sam was in complete control with all the timing of the events. His choice of music and mixing was greatly appreciated with several guests commenting to us how great he was able to transition and mix music! We had a great time and would highly recommend DJ Sam to anyone! Thanks!!!

Before we started really planning for our wedding, I knew that I was going to be super concerned with the selection of the music at the reception. We've been to weddings where DJs just absolutely decimated the mood at the reception by playing some random remixes or not really feeling out the crowd. It was weighing heavy on my mind (and honestly as the groom, it was one of the only things I really, truly cared about).

The DJ that we thought we would use for our wedding was already booked for another engagement, so we found DJ Sam on the Knot and set up a face-to-face meeting at a coffee shop or a Panera bread when we were back in Pittsburgh (Tara and I live in NYC, but are both from Zelienople). Sam was laid back and totally understood our vision for the mood of the reception. He took notes and came well prepared. We felt a real sense of trust with him.

Sam was very responsive throughout the planning process and we had a couple conference calls to go through the order of events at the reception (which was very helpful). Sam was able to guide us in terms of a good flow for our guests.

When the wedding day arrived, we didn't have to worry about anything. I actually wrote and recorded our first dance song and sent Sam a mastered version like the day before the wedding - he called me to ensure that he had received it and listened and everything sounded great. Those are the small things that really reassure you while you're nervous about everything falling into place.

The reception went off without a hitch and we had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the music and dancing. Sam was a pleasure to work with and I recommend him highly. Please feel free to reach out to me for a reference or any other information!

DJ Sam was the best to work with! The DJ my family had used for my two older sister's weddings was unavailable, so my fiance and I did an internet search for recommended DJ's in the Pittsburgh area. After all the planning and the actual reception, there's no question in our minds that we made the right choice and we can definitely see why others loved working with him. My dad even called him to ask for advice about our Father/Bride dance and then sent me this email:

"Oh I like this guy!!! He knows good music…."

DJ Sam walked us through the planning process and answered all of our questions along the way. He did a great job of listening to our music tastes/requests and then incorporating songs along the same lines. We had everyone up and dancing until the end of the reception, we couldn't have asked for a better party!

DJ Sam definitely surpassed our expectations at our wedding. Not only did he play the songs we provided, but he offered his own suggestions based off the types of songs on our song list. That to me shows true quality and professionalism in a DJ. He also kept everyone engaged and kept the energy going throughout the entire night! At the end of the reception, a lot of our friends and guests kept chanting "One more song, one more song!" because they enjoyed the energy that Sam brought through the music he played. And, of course, Sam generously played one more song! Sam was also very easy to work with leading up to our wedding date. I contacted him via e-mail, and he was always very good at responding quickly and not only answering our questions, but offering suggestions on the order of the reception and when this should be done and when that should be done, and he offered opinions on questions we had about what songs should be played for certain dances (ex: father/daughter dance.) Not only did myself and my husband, and the entire bridal party, LOVE DJ Sam and his energy, but even our guests were raving about him...and a neighbor got his contact information to use in HER son's wedding. DJ Sam definitely surpassed our expectations, and we would use him again whenever needed! And we definitely recommend using his services for not only weddings, but any event where you need a great DJ who knows how to keep the party going!

DJSamCrawford is a great DJ. I knew of him when he did my sisters wedding a couple of years ago, and since everyone had a blast then, I called him for my wedding. My fiance and I met with him and we shared ideas of what we wanted, he took all sorts of requests and was able to handle it with flair; for instance my family likes Tarantella's, an Italian style polka, and there are different versions, and when the songs played, everyone was on the dance floor. People had so much fun, most people stayed until the end. Sam also played classic hits and he has a repertoire of all sorts of different types of music. Most importantly, he works with you to pick the style of music and set the pace of your event. I've been to weddings where people go with someone on the cheap, and it shows with hardly anyone dancing and most people hanging out at the bar. DJSamCrawford really helped to make our wedding special, and I appreciate that.

Most importantly, he works with you to pick the style of music and set the pace of your event. I've been to weddings where people go with someone on the cheap, and it shows with hardly anyone dancing and most people hanging out at the bar. DJSamCrawford really helped to make our wedding special, and I appreciate that. Read less

We first saw DJ Sam Crawford at a family wedding reception. We commented that the only time you notice a DJ is when they are really good or really bad - Sam was really good. We were engaged and knew that we wanted Sam as our DJ for our wedding the following year. Sam's responsiveness to emails and calls was exceptional, he was willing to meet at our convenience, and provided suggestions while he was still willing to meet our requests. We had many compliments throughout the night and after our reception on how excellent the DJ was and how much fun everyone had. Sam played the music we requested and a variety that kept the party going. He kept the wedding reception on track with announcing the bridal party, cake cutting, garter/bouquet, etc. Sam's personality makes him easy to work with and planning more exciting. We highly recommend Sam for any event!

DJ Sam Crawford was a phenomenal DJ and really made our wedding day awesome.From the get go, Sam was professional, buttoned up and worked with us on exactly what we wanted for our wedding. He met with us each time we asked him to and helped us plan out the flow of the day from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the events of the reception. Not only was Sam a fantastic DJ who kept the party going for hours, but he was a great emcee who made sure the flow of the wedding was handled so we could enjoy our day. I would highly recommend DJ Sam for any wedding. He was awesome.

We honestly couldn't have had a better DJ. Sam was very professional, a great speaker, and very caring throughout our whole wedding process. He was punctual and very flexible. His equipment was excellent and he made sure the whole event flowed from the intro to last call! I have been part of many weddings and can honestly say I have never seen a better DJ!

My husband and I would highly, highly recommend Sam...we both truly believe that his DJ'ing set the whole tone for our day and made our wedding what it was! I told Sam that all I wanted was for everyone to have fun and dance the whole night and he exceeded my wildest expectations...the dance floor was packed the entire night and people are STILL telling us almost a year later how much fun they had dancing, singing and partying at our wedding. He is truly just a cool guy, super easy to get along with and flexible and knows how to turn a wedding into a party!

DJ Sam was one of the greatest assets that we had at our wedding. DJ Sam did his thing, picked up the slack of our other vendors who dropped the ball a number of times and really was our go-to guy for the night. The music was spot on, his professionalism was top-notch and my wife and I would recommend him to anyone.

While planning our wedding, one of my biggest concerns was finding a great DJ - they determine so much of the atmosphere for your event! We were on a budget, and I needed someone who could provide outdoor ceremony & cocktail hour music and indoor reception music. We had been at a friend's wedding where Sam was the DJ, and my husband LOVED it. Like a lot of guys, he was not really interested in the wedding planning at all, but he made a point of going up to Sam at our friend's wedding and getting his card.
We spoke with Sam a number of times before the wedding to make sure everything was planned out - some of our choices had a number of different versions and he found & had the correct version for everything. I even sent him info and a few songs the night before the wedding around 11 pm, and he had everything for my wedding the next day.
Our timeline changed a number of times throughout the day of our wedding, and Sam did a fantastic job of working with us and changing things throughout the day. The transitioning from outside to inside was perfect! People were on the dance floor all night, but it wasn't so overpowering that people who wanted to sit at the tables couldn't talk. We received so many compliments on our wedding day and how much fun people had, and I know one of the biggest reasons was having Sam as our DJ. I've recommended him to several friends since our wedding in 2011 - you will not regret hiring him as your DJ for any event - wedding, party, etc.

Sam was the perfect DJ. He played all the right music and kept our guests on the dance floor. It is important to note that a DJs job is not just to play music. It is to get the guests involved and keep the flow of the wedding on time. Sam did an exceptional job in all aspects of the wedding from start to finish. Not once did I have to tell him what to do or how to pronounce a name right. Sam did his homework and performed it to the fullest. He exceeded all my expectations.
