DJ Sam Crawford was incredible to work with and helped to make our wedding day perfect! We have received countless compliments about Sam and how fun our wedding was due to his music selections! A few weeks before the wedding, we asked if Sam could play pre-ceremony music for us also, and he was extremely flexible and so graciously used his equipment to not only play for us, but to help our musicians as well as they played during our ceremony. We were so thankful for his flexibility and his professionalism: he was able to find and play the obscure music for our pre-ceremony music, and he put together the perfect playlist for the cocktail hour/dinner music. As each song played, my husband and I looked at each other and said, "this is perfect!" Sam did a phenomenal job announcing the wedding party and following the timeline of our events. I did not have a wedding coordinator, and Sam kept the schedule perfectly and eliminated all stress for me and my husband. Our guests danced the entire night! (Almost 4 hours!) again, we received countless compliments about Sam and many said they haven't been to a wedding where everyone danced the whole time! We are so grateful for Sam and all that he did to make our day perfect. I would recommend Sam to anyone for any occasion - he was such a pleasure to work with!

DJ Sam Crawford gave us a night we'll never forget! We met with multiple DJs at wedding events and in person and did not connect with any of them until we met Sam. Sam was so likeable and easy to work with, we knew from the first meeting he was our guy. For the next year and a half of planning, any email, phone call, or text to Sam was responded to immediately (which is not the case with most vendors). This took one of the many stresses of planning away from us as we knew we were in good hands.

Sam was over prepared for anything that could have happened at the wedding and even handled a last minute change in the wedding party announcements flawlessly. Not to mention, he pronounced everyone's name perfectly for being an Italian wedding. He had the dance floor packed ALL NIGHT LONG. Any specials requests for songs to be played during dinner and the reception were fulfilled.

I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to book a DJ. Trust me, the DJ sets the tone for your wedding and we are 100% confident that you won't be disappointed!

I honestly can't say enough great things about Sam Crawford! We were really nervous about picking a wedding DJ, because having everyone on the dance floor all night was really important to us, but Sam was the perfect choice! He played all the songs we wanted to hear, and kept everyone dancing all night! He makes it extremely easy to request songs prior to the wedding, and he keeps the night running smoothly! He isn't cheesy at all like some wedding DJs, just keeps everything moving, and makes sure everyone is having a great time!

We could not possibly say enough great things about working with Sam. He was very detailed oriented from the start and really got to know our personalities and what we wanted and didn't want from our reception. His online system made it easy to keep track of everything we wanted played (and stuff we wanted to never see the light of day). During his phone call the week before the event, he went over every tiny thing to make sure it was all exactly as we wanted. During the reception he was very flexible with making a few changes, as we'd had some last minute hiccups. And even though our party ended up being smaller than we'd expected, he kept everyone dancing all night with the best mix of music. Everyone is still RAVING about him, days later. He was so much fun and energetic, but without being that typical, hokey wedding DJ. He was a serious pleasure to work with and we'd book him again in a heartbeat for any other event we'd have in the future.

Sam was absolutely AMAZING! From the first time I spoke with him I knew he was the right guy for us. He was extremely responsive, listened to every request we had and made it a point to check in with us a week prior to the wedding to make sure he got every pronunciation correct for our bridal party. He even worked with my MOH to put together one of the best rap song/speeches ever.

Sam has an easy to use online planner that adds your entire wedding timeline and must play, play if you can, and DO NOT play. If we had a special request, Sam listened, was on point and executed. I asked that we walk into an exact second on a song and he timed it perfectly. If I thought of a song, I would email Sam letting him know we wanted to hear it and I think I heard every single song we requested I was SHOCKED at how packed the dance floor was all night. He was extremely professional and one of the most reasonably priced DJs out there.

Sam - We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so much FUN!

We loved working with Sam Crawford as our DJ. He was easy to work with and extremely punctual in response to emails and questions. At the beginning we met with several DJ’s and they all tried to sell us these package deals with XYZ and didn’t really get to know me and my husband. Sam was and exception. For example at one of the first meeting I mentioned I love Taylor Swift songs. He made a note of that and at our wedding he played several Taylor Swift songs throughout the night.
Sam was also an amazing MCing the wedding day. We had our wedding and reception in the same place so we needed Sam to play the music for the ceremony (recession and procession music). He was able to seamlessly play that music, then transition into cocktail hour music then into introduction music, dinner music and into the party music. We gave him full range of what music should be played and he nailed. Ever part of the night required different music and different tempo and they worked perfectly together.
The most important part of MCing an event is to know exactly what was going to happen and when. He was on top of that and actually came up to the bridal suite during cocktail hour while me and my husband were relaxing to see when we were ready to be introduced instead of rushing us into cocktail hour before we had a chance to rest. It was a nice touch because the day goes by so fast.
After dinner Sam kept in touch with either me or my husband to see how everything was going and to see if anything needed to be changed. We are extremely happy that Sam Crawford did our wedding and reception.

My husband and I met with eight (yes, 8!) DJs all around the Pittsburgh area before selecting Sam. As soon as we left our initial in-person meeting with Sam, we knew he was the right fit. Sam is super easy-going, really responsive and very professional. He works with your schedule and listens to what you want (and, what you don't want). When it came down to a couple weeks before our wedding, I realized that we hadn't added any specific songs to the online music library that Sam had provided to us. I emailed Sam a list of random songs that we liked and a couple that we definitely did not like, explained the "vibe" that we wanted and he came up with the most killer playlist for the entire evening. The music was perfect from cocktail hour to the last dance song. The floor was packed with people (all ages!) dancing all night. The dance photos from our wedding ended up being some of our favorites because everyone looks like they are having such a fun time. We received (and continue to receive) lots of inquiries from other engaged couples about who our DJ was. One of our engaged friends actually ended up booking Sam the month after our wedding for their own upcoming wedding, without even considering other options because they liked Sam so much. We would highly recommend Sam to any couple looking to have an awesome time at their wedding!

Sam was AMAZING! I really can not say enough good things about him. Sam was referred to us through friends that had gotten married a few years ago and I am so very happy that they recommended him to us! He was incredibly responsive, fun to work with, listened to our requests and really understood what type of music we wanted to dance to all night. He helped with music suggestions when we were stuck on a few specific things and he was so knowledgeable! He helped me to feel very relaxed all night. He had the crowd dancing all night and he helped the entire wedding timeline move along very quickly. I would highly recommend Sam's DJ services for any type of event! You will not be disappointed!!

My wedding was just last weekend and Sam was our DJ for the event. All I can say is that he was WONDERFUL to work with. I was planning the wedding from California and Sam was more than willing to Facetime with us so we could "meet" him before actually booking anything. The DJ planning software that he uses is great because you are able to provide him with really detailed information for the reception so that he is fully aware of every aspect of the reception. The week prior to the wedding we talked with Sam on the phone and ironed out all of the last minute details for the reception. Sam had a lot of really great suggestions for us and we loved his enthusiasm. When we hung up with Sam after this last phone call, we knew that we would have nothing to worry about. Sam exceeded all expectations at our reception. He kept the music pumping but also knew when to bring it down for those softer moments as well. He is great at being able to read the crowd and played songs that kept our guests on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. He came up up to my husband and I at various points during the night to see if we needed anything at all and to keep us informed of what was up next on the agenda. My husband and I were so, so impressed with Sam and everything that he did to make our reception so wonderful. If we are every back in Pittsburgh planning another event, we will hands down go with DJ Sam again. Thanks for everything Sam. =)
