Imagine dancing with your father (or mother if you're the groom). The music comes up and you are flooded with feelings of love, laughter, and joy with a few tears flowing as well. At McKinney Entertainment Scott creates memories you will never forget.

He is young enough to know and love your music. Old enough to have the knowledge, skills, and experience to create the wedding day you desire. This is your wedding day, not his.

Photographers, venues, and videographers love Scott because he keeps them informed of what is happening when. Nothing important gets missed. You will love Scott because ten years from now your guests will still be talking about how much fun they had at your wedding reception. And, like Heather and Wilf, seen in our logo, you will leave your reception with huge smiles. Read less

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Requests are limited by the amount of time we are contracted for. However, we do appreciate couples who value our expertise and let us use a few of their requests to create an awesome wedding day for them.
What is your usual attire?
Tux pants, tux shirt with tie and cumberbund or vest. Will dress to accommodate clients wishes.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if we cannot legally purchase it or if it is a small local indie band.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Three hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We prefer to meet with you before you ever decide to book us. This is a very important day for you and you want to know that you have chosen the right entertainment for you.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have two lighting effects available at no additional charge. Other lighting is available for a small fee. Diana on our staff is one of a limited number of certified Love Story presenters in Colorado.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
One hour is standard for set up but could be longer if you have special needs. We bring our own DJ booth so you do not need to provide a table for us.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do not use signs or banners when performing at YOUR wedding.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Being your Master of Ceremonies is extremely important to us. It helps you and your guests know what is going on and when it will happen. We do not talk between songs.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Not all brides and grooms are looking for dance music. Some want a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere with no pressure to dance. Others want their guests to dance and have a good time. We listen to what you want and act accordingly. By getting to know your guests before the dancing even starts we already have a good feel for what they want to hear and to dance to. One thing we will not do is intimidate or embarrass your guests into dancing.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not take breaks. Meals are only required if we are scheduled to perform for more than six hours. However, if you want to feed us we certainly will not have the bad manners to turn you down.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Have a backup DJ on standby and the backup for that is our association with a network of five other professional DJs who are all excellent. We watch each other's backs. We have never missed a wedding.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Usually not. Sometimes we may do a morning event and then schedule an evening event.
What is your overtime rate?
$100.00 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do charge for travel expenses if your wedding is more than 50 miles from our base of operations. If your wedding is more than three hours travel time and your wedding ends after 10 PM, we will require overnight lodging.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$350.00 or 50% if total fee is less than $700.00

Diana and Scott made magic happen! It made all the difference in the world to have them! They love what they do and really truly cared about us and our experience on that day and before. They go above and beyond from asking to personally know the immediate family, organizing games and entertainment for guests and so much more. They actually even helped me record my own song for walking down the isle and encouraged me when I was nervous! There 25 years of experience makes every detail and decision easier they thought of everything I hadnt. I will never do a big event without them!

Scott and Diana are amazing! We had to move our venue two weeks before our wedding date due to flooding and Scott said he would be there no matter where we had it. He played all of the songs we requested and the dance floor was always full of guests. He created a mix for our father-daughter dance. He truly knows his music and keeps the reception fun and up-beat the entire time. He also supplied all of the sound equipment for the ceremony and microphones. I would highly recommend McKinney Entertainment. They are fantastic!

Had to move the venue due to flooding in Estes Park, no problem they were very accommodating. The song list we gave him was played throughout the night. He even did a mix for the father daughter dance that was great. Had a great sound system that all worked with no issues. The microphones all worked all around the room. Was there early to be set up and running.

Scott and Diana were great. Diana filled in at the venue when someone called in sick, and helped get the flow going after the ceremony. Since we didn't have to many songs that we had to have, we let Scott have free reign over the music, and he did a good job. I will definitely use them again and recommend them.

Scott and Diana McKinney were AMAZING to work with!! Not only are they fantastic at what they do, from DJing to Master of Ceremonies to even snapping some of my most treasured photos, they are all around amazing people. My now husband and I didn't have to look at any other DJs after we met with the McKinneys. We loved their professionalism and fun demeanor. They worked with us on everything that we wanted and even let us throw in a surprise money dance that we never planned. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic DJ. My friends and family who attended raved about them, and said that I couldn't have picked a better DJ. If I had to do it all over again there is no way I wouldn't choose them again!

Dj was just ok. Wife was supposed to be there as part of the package to help everything go smoothly, she never showed, instead the DJ had to keep leaving the stage to find us and ask questions. Music and sounds were great for the wedding but we picked it all out before hand. For the ceremony, we asked for help and recommendations for songs and they struggled to find good recommendations. We finally did more research on our own to find the songs because everything they suggested was not wedding ceremony material. Disapointed with what we paid and the services we got. A big marketing thing they used was that they have never missed an event but I guess they forgot about my wedding because the wife never showed and we paid for her to be there as well.

McKinney Entertainment responded with the following comments:

We are terribly saddened to learn that Bryan and Brittney did not feel they could come to us with their concerns. We had no idea they were unhappy with Scott's service, especially since they had him play an hour of overtime.

It is not our policy to guarantee that two people will be at every wedding. Scott, the actual DJ, did not miss this event. Two people have attended past events because we like working together, not because it is guaranteed. We do not charge for a second person to attend and Brittney and Bryan did not pay extra to have a second person at their wedding ceremony and reception.

Any DJ worth his or her salt will leave the DJ booth/stage throughout the course of the event to touch bases with the couple. This is not an unusual circumstance.

Regarding the ceremony music, each couple is different. We have an excellent selection of standard ceremony music. We deeply apologize that Brittney and Bryan did not feel that our suggestions were wedding ceremony material.

Any couple that is unhappy with the service they receive from a wedding professional should contact that vendor and express their concerns. Sadly, Brittney and Bryan did not do that. As a result, Solid Sound Entertainment had no opportunity to provide any sort of remedy for their disappointment.

Scott and Diana played our wedding and we were thrilled. We met with them prior to pick out music and ensure all the songs we wanted played would be at our wedding. My wife had a special song chosen for her dance with her dad. The night of the wedding they realized they didn't have that song with them and Diana ran to the store to buy it. What I loved about Scott was that he made the reception about us. So many DJ's take over and try to be the main attraction. Scott played the music we wanted to hear, he mixed songs well and was a wonderful host. Scott and Diana are consummate professionals - don't hesitate to hire them. BTW - our wedding was in 1999 but the site only let you go back as far as 2003 - so that isn't our true wedding date. But I had to post in support of them.
