Scott Silz was a pleasure to work with. He worked with our music list and added some dimension with playing songs that worked very well. He had the wedding crowd movin all night long...say what...House Music all night long! We were very pleased with his professionalism, experience and mixing style. Everyone had a great time! I'm sure Scott was pleased with all the WBMX Hot Mix 5 fans that attended the wedding. I would highly recommend Hotmix Entertainment for your wedding, birthday party or any event for that matter..

Scott and his team were extremely professional, accommodating, and entertaining. Scott is a world class DJ, yet extremely service-oriented. My wife and I have pretty diverse music tastes, but Scott made everyone very happy, contributing to a night we'll never forget. I highly recommended Hot Mix Entertainment.

Hot Mix Entertainment was great at my wedding! They played all the songs that my husband and I enjoyed. I really liked how they continually checked up on us to make sure that we were happy with the song selections that would be played. They were very detailed with all of the planning and it was just nice to have them come and not have to worry about the music at my wedding. Scott Smokin' Silz was our DJ and he completely rocked our wedding! Everyone at our wedding really enjoyed the music he played and we all had such a blast!

We couldn’t be happier with Hot Mix and our DJ, Scott. From the first phone call, they were great to work with. They knew what questions to ask and sometimes I felt like they could read our minds. We spoke to Scott a bunch of times before the wedding, so we didn’t stress the day of. At the wedding, the music was INCREDIBLE. We missed the cocktail hour, but we heard he played light jazz like we wanted. As it got later, he picked it up and got everyone up and dancing (and dancing and dancing).

Scott "Smokin" Silz was our DJ and we could have stayed and partied all night. He played all the classics that we asked for. We both grew up listening to his mixes on WGCI. We love House and Old Skool. He played R&B for our cocktail music and dinner. It's exactly what we hoped for. We had so many friends who were into the mixes and said that we had the best wedding ever. Thank you "Smokin" Scott. Hot Mix 5 in the mix, mix, mix. Jammin! You're doing our friends wedding in November and we can't wait. See you soon.

Hot Mix Entertainment did a wonderful job for our Wedding! They played all the songs we requested and the Dance Floor was full from start to finish. We saw Hot Mix at our Country Club at a couple of other events and everyone always commented on how great the music was. Even my parents said "What a great DJ!" You guys really made our night.

Such a wonderful DJ to use for your wedding! We have heard their dj services at a few different clubs and absolutely loved the fun and energy they brought with them. DJ Scott sure knows how to rock the house and still be professional. Saved me a ton of dough too! Thanks DJ Scott, you're one cool cat.

Having a good DJ is a very important factor in any wedding reception. Fortunately Hot Mix Entertainment was recommended to me by some friends when I was helping plan my cousin’s wedding in Chicago. Her guests were going to be a very hip crowd with a few old timers so we needed a DJ that could cater to that crowd.
DJ Scott “Smokin’” Silz definitely lived up to his reputation. He was set up and ready to go early. He intuitively played music that was appropriate and fun enhancing the whole time. Music requests were honored in a timely manner so all my the guests were all very happy. His equipment was top quality so you literally felt the music. I highly recommend booking Hot Mix Entertainment.

We had the best wedding! Scott Smokin' Silz with Hot Mix Entertainment was by far one of our best vendors for our wedding!!! Hot Mix was professional at all times and really helped us with all the planning details. The monogram and up-lighting they provided really transformed the look of our room. It just looked beautiful. We're so glad we chose Hot Mix. They played great music and were so nice to work with.

Booking Hot Mix was our best move. The music was great & the suggested uplighting enhanced the beauty of the room. People danced the night away and many came to tell us just how great the DJ was... Scott did a really good job with the timing, getting everyone involved, and keeping a good mix throughout the night. Our dance floor was full from start to finish. Hot Mix Entertainment made our night!

You made our day! We were referred to Hot Mix Entertainment and didn't know much about them. They really knew exactly what to do. They stayed in touch with us over several months and met with us twice. Our dance floor was full and our friends couldn't have paid us any more compliments for the great music. We had a great wedding and we really want to thank Hot Mix Entertainment for making it happen.

We could not have been happier! Our DJ Scott Smokin' Silz was amazing and kept people up and dancing all night long. He was completely professional, easy to work with and the guests loved him. We could just sit back-or get up and dance-and enjoy the night, since we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thanks, Hot Mix!!!

I saw Scott on WGN TV for the show he was doing with V103 and the Hot Mix 5. I've been listening to his mixes on the radio for years. I knew Hot Mix Entertainment was the company I wanted to work with for my wedding. Not only was Hot Mix extremely prompt in returning my messages, but they continued to stay in touch with me during the process of planning and were always available to answer my questions. Scott did a great job! The music was perfect. Our dance floor was full all night and our guests stayed till the very end. We could not have been happier.

We absolutely recommend Hot Mix Entertainment and Scott "Smokin" Silz for your wedding or other special event! He was extremely easy to work with, his price was much more competitive than we ever imagined, and he did an incredible job entertaining our guests. We're still getting compliments from friends and family about how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing all night! He also did the music for our ceremony. Great job Hot Mix!

Hot Mix did a great job for us! They were easy to work with, responded to our emails quickly and above all kept all of our guests dancing! We hired Scott cause we saw him at House Of Blues and he was amazing. I had heard him on the radio for years and to have him at our wedding was just a dream come true. What a great guy. I highly recommend you get him if you can.

Thank you Scott for providing, what in most cases now, the soundtrack of our life! It is coming up on 15 years this July & we can still vividly paint the picture of our wedding reception from every single part of the night due to YOU! From the very beginning when we sat down with you to do music selection which @ times were hard for us but you were able to break the ice and recommend some great music that really gave the meaning to our life and love for each other. Pure professionalism throughout... From the dinner, wedding party announcement & all the meaningful dances throughout followed by music we & my family grew up on... Disco, Rock & Roll along with some good ol' Chicago House Music. We can't thank you enough!

We hired Hot Mix because we've heard Scott on the radio doing the mixes for our favorite station. He was so great to work with and played a wide variety of our favorite music. The dance floor was full all night and our guests kept saying that they were having a great time. Thank you Hot Mix!
