Scorpio Entertainment was created in 2005 byEdward Daniels.

Daniels began his career in music at the age of 16 as a radio announcer for WEVA-AM86 in Emporia, VA. He transitioned to Washington, DC in 2003 to begin a career in theatre and film. As a supplement to his work as an actor-singer, he began hosting karaoke at Freddie’s Beach Bar in Arlington, VA. After producing a number of successful events in the DC nightlife scene, resulting in several features in the Washington Post, and numerous requests from bachelorette parties to perform at private events and weddings, Daniels decided to embark upon an entrepreneurial venture of his own in event production, and founded Scorpio Entertainment.

Since 2005, DJ Edward Daniels has performed at over 650 events throughout Washington, DC, as well as Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Las Vegas, and beautiful Sedona, Arizona, for clientele ranging from Ringling Brothers CEO, Ken Feld, to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. As an emcee, Daniels has announced over 175 road-races including the Air Force-Navy Half Marathon and has served as the main stage emcee and DJ, for the past seven years, at both Taste of Reston and Oktoberfest Reston, two of Northern Virginia’s largest annual food & music festivals, each boasting crowds of over 30,000 attendees.

Daniels says, “There is definitely a science and an art to what I do and how I do it. When you book with me or any of my team, you’re hiring a professional with an exceptional passion for music and event production…someone who is looking to create the most remarkable experience that you and your guests could ever fancy! There are a ton of DJs out there, but at the end of the day, after that last song has played and you’re putting your earrings and shoes back on, you can leave the dance floor thinking ‘that was good’ or ‘oh my good Jesus, that was GREAT!’ My job, our job, is to create the ‘oh my good Jesus’ effect and be great!”

Daniels holds a degree in Philosophy from the University of Virginia. He was named one DC’s Finest Young Professionals by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 2012, was a Washington Blade 2014 “Best of Gay DC, Best DJ” Finalist, and was featured as a DJ in season one, episode five, of Netflix’s House of Cards.

Scorpio Entertainment books events ranging from proms and Sweet 16s to weddings, festivals, corporate, and private events. Our digital music library contains over 15,000 titles, including the Top 100 Billboard singles from the past 35 years. In addition to DJ Edward Daniels, our associate DJ staff travel with the most state-of-the-art equipment, including lighting and special effects, which help to transform and enhance any event that we are a part of.

Edward and Scorpio Entertainment are amazing! Edward was our DJ for our wedding. He was great to work with leading up to the night- very responsive and willing to meet or talk whenever we needed. During the reception Edward played an array of music finding the right tone for our crowd. He had everyone out on the dance floor having a great time! Highly recommend Edward and Scorpio for anyone looking for a DJ- wedding or event!

Edward provided great customer service throughout the booking and planning process. We had two brief in person meetings to discuss the wedding details and worked the rest out via email. He took our song suggestions and must play list and crafted an amazing playlist for our reception. Kept everyone on the dance floor all night! We literally had to drag people out of our reception venue at the end of the night. Thanks Edward!

Edward was the DJ at our son's wedding. He was so amazing. He is great to work with, professional and accommodating. He had the crowd dancing all night, we didn't want the music to stop! He did a great job keeping the flow of the evening from introducing the bridal party to the father daughter dance. I don't think there was a moment the dance floor was not packed. That is truly a credit to Edward. I would highly recommend him for any event.

We really enjoyed working with Scorpio Entertainment! Edward is very personable, and he worked with us to give us the best playlist. He paid attention to the dance floor, and on the few instances where a song didn't seem to excite the crowd, or if people started to stop dancing, he quickly changed the song. The only mark against him was that, when he announced the bride and groom, he actually got our last name wrong. We didn't hold it against him, since prior to the wedding, he did ask for the pronunciations of the wedding party. It was one small blip to an otherwise great performance.

I was extremely impressed with how well Edward worked with us leading up to the wedding. He was very flexible, especially when he provided another sound system for us when we found out a few weeks before the wedding that our ceremony space did not have sound. Our wedding was incredibly fun and I have to give credit to Edward for always playing music that kept everyone dancing for hours. He played to the crowd and had the right music to set the right tone for the night. I would recommend him to anyone in the area.

Scorpio Entertainment was great! Edward was amazing! One example of my awesome experience: I switched into "dancing shoes" and Edward actually NOTICED! He then played Boogie Shoes and Footloose. I looked at my mom and said "THAT is why I hired him!" Thanks for a great night!

Scorpio Entertainment did an excellent job at our reception! I loved the planning tool that was provided for me prior to the event. The communication between Edward and I was superb! He responded to all emails and phone calls whenever I needed help. He really took in consideration our song choices and did not play songs that were out of our musical genre. We loved the music and my guess were also pleased with the musical selection. Hands down Scorpio Entertainment is an excellent choice ! I couldn't ask for a better Dj at our event! Thank you so much for making our day special and very memorable!

Edward was amazing at our reception. He kept the party going all night, mixing up new music with your classic wedding songs. And he didn't play the songs that I asked him to ban (even after annoying family members requested them).
