True professionals in every sense of the word. We worked with Dana to manage everything before the event and she did a great job of making planning the music as stress-free and fun as possible.

At the wedding, DJ Jon Blak was friendly, easygoing, and played awesome music to keep the party going all night. He played exactly the kind of music we wanted plus took special requests and played cool remixes. He also did an excellent job as MC throughout the evening.

Amazing! Every step of the music process was easy, well organized and everyone that I dealt with at this company was very nice and helpful. No one tried to push the sale and they even provided extra mics and speakers for our live music at our ceremony. This is a wonderful company and the prices were very fair!!

DJ Jaye Diggs provided the atmosphere we wanted in our wedding. From the ceremony to the last dance. Many guests told us they felt the music was one of the best they have been to in a wedding. He knew how to read the guests for which type of music to play for the dancing, since we provided a big selection. Highly recommend DJ Jaye Diggs for your wedding.

DJ Spawn was AMAZING. Weeks after our wedding we still have people talking about how great the music was. He nailed the exact vibe we were hoping to achieve. The dance floor was packed the entire night! He was so professional, and had the best attitude. When we were considering music, we were nervous to go the DJ route (as opposed to a band). As it turns out we couldn't be happier!! Our engaged friends who attended have ALL asked for his info so they can book him as well. I really hope I have the opportunity to work with DJ Spawn and Scratch Wedding again in the future. Sandra at Scratch Weddings is awesome! She was always quick to respond and very pleasant to work with. The music match system that they use is such a great tool for picking all of the songs we wanted to hear as long as the ones we didn't want to hear! I cannot even give enough credit to Spawn... he was simply the best DJ ever!!!

Our wedding reception was AMAZING and so much fun thanks to DJ Cool Out. We had some wacky ideas of what we wanted and after a few conversations, we felt very confident that he would deliver. We provided a list of songs that we wanted to hear and gave him free reign for everything else. I must say, once the dance floor was opened up, nobody wanted to leave. We had everyone from our friends to our grandparents' friends dancing ALL NIGHT. When it was time for cake cutting, we almost didn't even want to do it because we were having so much fun.

Thank you to everyone at Scratch Weddings for organizing, coordinating and making our special day seem flawless. And a special thanks to DJ Cool Out for an awesome night!

We had Cincere DJ our wedding and we thought he was just going to play music and announce the usual things but he did so much more. First of all, my husband and I love music so I did a lot of research and had a good feeling this company doesn't just provide the typical cookie cutter DJ services. Prior to the wedding, I went over the music style we wanted at our nontraditional wedding and he certainly delivered. Cincere arrived early and had everything set up for our ceremony upstairs and reception downstairs. In addition to playing great music, he was basically the bouncer for the night...lol - he made sure we wrapped up taking pictures at the end of our cocktail hour when our photographer would not let us leave and had us all lined up when we needed to make our entrance. Highly recommend him and this company..he had everyone dancing all night!

Scratch Weddings was one of the best vendors I booked for my wedding. When I started looking for a DJ, I was going to just book the DJ two of my friends used for their weddings. However, I couldn't get in contact with them so I moved on. I contacted Scratch based on the Wedding Wire reviews. BEST DECISION EVER. My initial contact, Cindy, was very helpful in helping me narrow down and pick a DJ. The excitement she expressed about Scratch Weddings and working there made me excited about selecting them as my vendor. My event manager, Liz, was so helpful. She responded to my emails timely, followed up with me when I forgot to give her info, and answered all my questions. My DJ, DJ Dos A, was AMAZING. He got the crowd pumped and was a great MC. His mixing was flawless and he picked great songs. I had guests on the dance floor even before the floor opened for the dancing part of the night! That's how great Dos A was. My guests loved Dos A and kept complimenting about how he was such a great DJ. I couldn't have picked a better vendor and DJ. Thank goodness and lucky me my friends' DJ never got back to me!

We are so happy that we chose Scratch Weddings to play at our wedding. Their team is organized, responsive and so helpful; we definitely did not stress about the music because of their professionalism throughout the entire planning process. DJ Tanner spun at our wedding, and he was amazing! We knew from our pre-wedding conference call that he was perfect for our day. He kept everyone on the dance floor all night!

When I first started planning my wedding in Long Island, I was a little worried because Long Island DJs can get so cheesy and over the top. We decided to use Scratch Weddings for a more Manhattan DJ feel and couldn't have been happier with our choice!!! DJ Jon Blak from Scratch Weddings New York was INCREDIBLE! We've heard from numerous guests that the music was amazing, best they've heard at a wedding. The dance floor was always packed and the energy really high throughout. One of my friends liked him so much that he is planning on booking him for his upcoming wedding. I can't recommend him enough!!! The staff at Scratch is also great. We worked with Jenn and Sandra, who were so accommodating and professional. They made us feel like we were taken care of throughout the whole process.

He had a great feel for the crowd during the dancing and set the tone for the whole night. All of our guests loved the music and many of them were asking who our DJ was (some even took pictures with him!). We highly recommend DJ Trife to anyone who is looking for a DJ in the New York area. He was a real pleasure to work with.

You pick your DJ or they advise one for you based on your area and music preference.
We had DJ Stef Nava, who also did a demo for us before we signed the contract.

The guys over at Scratch are super attentive and easy to work with.

We didn't get that over the top guy, yelling into a mic and cracking the speakers all night.
We got the vibe we wanted without all of that excess screaming we typically hear at weddings.

Scratch Weddings is absolutely amazing! Because their sole purpose and focus is providing the music for every moment of your wedding day, they do it exceptionally well! What I mean by this is that, while a lot of other companies we spoke to also offered lighting, TVs for slideshows etc., what we wanted was an incredible DJ and Scratch was absolutely the right choice. Dana who was our main contact for the entire process was always professional, helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. What we especially loved about Scratch is how everything is tailored to the client’s musical taste and what they want for the wedding, from the ceremony, the cocktail hour, the last dance and everything in between. From the initial phone call where they gauge your musical style, your likes and dislikes, they then use that information to narrow down their DJ roster to a few selections they feel are what you are looking for. They send you links where you can actually listen to mixes the DJs have crafted and then you can choose from there which one works best. They also have this amazing online platform which is linked with iTunes and basically walks you through the entire wedding day, allowing you to choose the exact songs you want to hear when (and even a section for songs that you never, ever want played). On the day of our wedding, DJ Jaye Diggs was incredible. Not only did he mix and mash songs effortlessly, he read our crowd perfectly even when we didn’t , recognizing when certain groups came up to dance and adjusting the music just right so that we never, ever had an empty dance floor. He even went above and beyond, tracking down songs for us that were not available through iTunes but we had requested. I would absolutely recommend Scratch to anyone who is looking for an amazing DJ service.

Hi! I used Scratch Weddings for our wedding's ceremony and reception at the Hilton in Key Largo, Florida. My contact was Sandra Usherov and my fantastic DJ was DJ Mike Kruz. As a company they are phenomenal- very professional, responsive and flexible. When I showed interest they emailed me four potential DJ's that were available on our wedding day. I was able to hear mixes they had done to see what fit our style.
We went with DJ Mike Kruz, and could not have been happier- He CRUSHED IT!! The dance floor was packed the entire night, I shredded my shoes in the sand. He owns his kraft. He was very professional, dressed well, and was great at reading the crowd.
Prior to the wedding I had a thorough conversation with Sandra (the coordinator) and DJ Mike Kruz, regarding our plan and our vision. I gave lists (and lists) of music and he totally got what we were going for. Our cocktail hour was indie rock, and we decided to keep the music more current, mixed in with Latin music for the Colombians. James, my husband, kept laughing at me all night long because every song that was played I would stop and say, "James, I looooove this song"… and he would reply, "of course you do, you told him what you loved". Even though we decided to keep the music current, everyone was on the dance floor all night. Even Tio Neno got out of his wheelchair to dance. I heard about how great the music was for days and days. Just yesterday ( one week later), an older family member (in her late 60's) asked me if I could get her the playlist from the reception.
I highly recommend Scratch Weddings and specifically Dj Mike Kruz for any party where you want to pack the dance floor. My only advice to future brides is to take the time to think about the music you want (and don't want) so that you can help them tailor an amazing night for you and your husband or wife.

I hired scratch weddings for my wedding reception. And I gotta say i was blown away by how awesome they are.

My wife and I were doing the reception on our own. And too be honest, hiring the DJ was making me the most nervous. I've never hired a DJ, I'll probably never hire one again. And I have no idea what I'm even looking for in a DJ.

I looked on line and people were making recommendations left and right, when finally someone on Reddit recommended Scratch Weddings.

I contact them and they got back to me right away. After a quick call they sent over the profiles of 5 DJs. They were all really good, but decided to go with DJ A-Ko. Mainly because he seemed like a cool guy in his interview video.

I couldn't be happier with the choice. He was awesome at the wedding, play great music during the cocktail hour and dinner. He filled the dance floor and pretty much kept it filled the rest of the night. Took requests and perfectly blended them in with his set. Not to mention he was right on time, and incredibly nice and accommodating.

I've been to several weddings in the last year and I can easily say we had the best DJ out of the bunch (not biased at all. I swear :))

I really can't say enough good things about Scratch Weddings.

Oh also, I don't really know how much a good wedding DJ costs. But Scratch Weddings was less than any other DJ I found online. So at least for me, it was cheaper and awesomer!

Oh also, I don't really know how much a good wedding DJ costs. But Scratch Weddings was less than any other DJ I found online. So at least for me, it was cheaper and awesomer! Read less

We are so grateful to have had Scratch Weddings spin at our wedding!! From start to finish their great crew set everything up seamlessly allowing DJ Dan to do a bang-up job spinning and keeping the flow going. And he's super cool and friendly to boot! We could not be more impressed with how they operate.

Every aspect of Scratch - from planning to execution - was absolutely perfect. They were incredibly fun to work with, and DJ D Tweed incorporated all of our requests and interests seamlessly. Daryl did a great job of watching the crowd to see if a genre-change was needed and coordinating with us to slip in miscellaneous wedding items like the speeches/parent dances/etc.

My husband and I got married this past October and decided to go with Scratch Weddings. We definitely made the right choice! We were very impressed with the professionalism from the 1st phone call up to the day of our reception! Jimmy (DJ JVC) was FANTASTIC!! He knew how to read the crowd and keep that dance floor packed the entire night!! So much fun!

We highly suggest Scratch! You will not be disappointed!

We booked with Scratch Weddings because they represented to us exactly the type of DJ we wanted for our wedding - nothing like the norm! All of their DJ's are really talented and have very impressive resumes. Our contact Sandra was so easy to work with and matched us with DJ Burnsi - the whole process was so easy, professional and helpful. DJ Burnsi totally got us and our wedding was a complete dance party which was exactly what we wanted! I would highly recommend Scratch Weddings!

Everyone with Scratch was great to work with!

My husband and I are HUGE music fans, so we were very particular on the songs we wanted played. DJ Rell did an amazing job and kept the party going.

It was such a pleasant experience working with everyone at Scratch - we can't recommend them enough.

Our even manager was amazing (Liz) and was extremely helpful, even with song suggestions. You tend to feel a bit overwhelmed when planning the wedding so even the simplest thing like your "cake cutting song" can be tough to decide. If you don't want to worry about and you just want to check it off the long list of to do's for the wedding...then book Scratch! It's the smartest decision you can make.

scratch weddings was great to work with. from the moment i contacted them about pricing and packages. right up to the last song at our wedding. We booked Jeremy as or DJ and he did a fantastic job. He was very professional. I was slightly nervous about hiring a DJ bc we ahd a country rustic wedding and we wanted a flow from country music, to dance music, to slow down wind down music and i wasnt sure if i could picture meshing all of those genres together. but he did it effortlessly and made all the songs flow perfectly! my guests raved about the DJ and telling us that our wedding was one of the best they had ever been to! Jeremy even came out and danced a few songs with us, it was so much fun, it felt like we had hired a freind to DJ our wedding, and not just a company. We deff did not get a cookie cutter DJ.. we got a personalized experience! i would recommend this company and most importantly i would reccommend Jeremy to anyone that asked me!

Everyone with Scratch was amazing to work with. The DJ we had listened to everything we said and spun amazing music all night. Very professional and responsive throughout the whole process of working with them. I would recommend scratch Weddings a hundred times over.

They were very flexible with our music needs/wants and played exactly what we requested. DJ Alkaline was fantastic! Many people commented on how good the music was! He was very friendly and trendy but professionally dressed (which was nice, as opposed to a usual tux). Highly recommend!

Scratch Weddings was very professional. Their Wedding DJ manager was great in organizing the process, the contracts, and coordinating all the details with the DJ (DJ Jim).

DJ Jim was also a real pro. He took our music list suggestions and spun them very well. He added his own style, and kept the dance floor going throughout the night. He also coordinated with my husband in going through the various events of the night (speeches, cocktail hour, first dances, cake cutting, etc.) and pronounced everyone's names well and in an exciting manner.

Scratch weddings is a high recommendation and DJ Jim was a really friendly, knowledgeable, high-energy DJ who spun a great set. The music was a great mix of 80's, and modern day things everyone recognized. We were really happy everyone danced all night.

Scratch Weddings was such a blessing to have on our wedding day. Sandra (Operations Manager) made planning and choosing the music and DJ for our wedding so easy. We didn't even know where to start with the music since we love so many artists and songs, but Sandra emailed us many choices and worked with us everyday to customize our playlists. On our wedding day, we had DJ Mark, and he was so much fun. My husband and I could not have had more fun at our wedding reception. Mark made sure the playlist went all together, and that all the speeches and toasts were on time. The music for the ceremony was perfect and altogether as well. He is such a talented DJ, as well as a very kind person. We are so blessed to have had DJ Mark and Scratch Weddings for our wedding.

I would highly recommend Scratch Weddings to any and every couple looking for a talented and professional music company. We are so blessed to have had them for our wedding day. Couldn't imagine my wedding day any other way without them.

Jeff was an amazing DJ to work with. He came through on every ridiculous request we had and made our reception exactly what we envisioned- a really fun party with a playlist that completely exemplified us and our very 90's-00's group of friends. We had such a blast and we keep hearing raving reviews about how much fun the dance party was. We were so impressed with Jeff's mixes from our intro song, our first party song, to the way every song seamlessly transitioned throughout the night. Sandra was also great to work with, so accessible via email and willing to help us with all our requests. We would recommend Scratch, and especially DJ Action Jackson to anyone!

Scratch was great! The staff was very professional, accommodating, and detail-oriented. We really appreciated the process. After giving them our general musical preferences, they gave us a list of DJs that would suit us. Each DJ works as an actual DJ (e.g., at a club), and has a profile you can check out that includes their résumé and some mixes to listen to. We especially liked this. We wanted to avoid the typical “wedding” DJ, and we weren’t disappointed. DJ Mike Cruz was great. We provided him with a list of genres we liked, must-play songs, don’t-play songs, pronunciations for names, and the schedule for the night. Everything was followed perfectly. Several people came up to me with positive comments about the music and DJ. Highly recommended!

Our experience with Scratch Weddings was dynamite from start to finish. So many vendors end up not living up to their promises. I have to say, Scratch Weddings did not disappoint us in the least. DJ Morsy was prompt, looked and acted like a true professional and flawlessly mixed music from all our favorite genres. My husband and I and our guests (of all ages) were up dancing all night long. Thank you Scratch Weddings and DJ Omar Morsy in particular for not adding any stress to our day, for being so professional and truly understanding what we wanted the night of our wedding. Without any reservations, we highly recommend both Scratch Weddings and DJ Omar Morsy.

We knew we wanted something other than the traditional 'black box' DJ for our wedding and we found exactly what we were after with Scratch Weddings and DJ Trife.

We chose DJ Trife from Scratch. At the wedding, he quickly read the crowd and determined that we were all ready to hit the dance floor. Every song he played was better than the last and nearly every guest, young and old, said how much they enjoyed the music. He knew just how to engage with the crowd, was great with staying on our timeline/making the necessary announcements and was just an overall pleasure. There are a lot of elements that make a wedding reception special but music can really make or break an evening. DJ Trife truly made the night come alive with his music mix of modern hits, 80s/90s favorites and Motown classics.

We used DJ Bounce (Chris) from Scratch and he was excellent. From the beginning to the end we had a great experience with this vendor. The ladies we worked with in the beginning were very professional and responsive. We had them set up outside and inside the venue with no problems. DJ Bounce also had all the music we asked for and we ended up having a GREAT party. I loved that you could view the DJ online before making a final decision. I highly recommend DJ Bounce.

I had DJ Ollie at my wedding and he was absolutely amazing!! Leading up thee the wedding, the staff at Scratch were so great to work with - so responsive and professional. I love how they also let you look at the DJ's samples online and pick the DJ you feel fits your style best. A week before the wedding I sent over a list of songs I would like to play and songs to NOT play, and DJ Ollie was so accommodating to play Italian Polkas and Italian Pop for my family!!! It was so good!!!!! The guests had a great time, people were always dancing, including my 80 year old grandfather :) I even had guests come up to me and compliment that way DJ Ollie seamlessly transitioned from one song to the next. Overall, a super fun night and thank you DJ Ollie for being a part of it. You are awesome!!

Mariela was prompt on her communications and helped us choose a DJ that fit our vision, a vision that was an 80's music dance party. We were able to listen to a some DJ samples and then interviewed the ones we liked. After we chose our DJ then Sandra helped us develop our playlist. DJ Ross Espi was very professional, had lively riffs and kept the music going and was able to properly gage the crowd to keep the party hopping. There was no self promoting or DJ signage just great music. DJ Ross chose the best parts of the songs to keep an upbeat atmosphere, the songs that were not well received were quickly changed. This company kept all appointments and made our long distance destination wedding fun!

We used Scratch Weddings for our wedding in DUMBO, Brooklyn this past May. We had originally booked a different venue in CT, and booked a DJ from Scratch - when we decided to change our venue, Scratch allowed us to put our deposit toward a DJ based in NY and even worked with us a little on price as the cost increased for a DJ based out of NY. We chose DJ Jon Blak and thought he did a great job. The dance floor was packed until the very end of the night and everyone had a great time. He was super professional and really listened to our requests. If you are looking for a NON CHEESY DJ, Scratch is the way to go!

DJ Alkaline was very receptive, he did everything we asked for and even more! everyone was happy dancing all night long and when the wedding ended all the people were asking for more and more songs, people loved it! If you are looking for a DJ please go to Scratch, they are amazing people.

DJ Mike Kruz was amazing!

I have to be honest, I was nervous at first because I tend to over-plan everything and, even though I was right in line with what all the timelines said, I felt as though I had not "planned" everything out with the DJ yet. Boy was I worried for nothing!!

My husband and I had our final call with Kimerie and DJ Mike Kruz about two weeks before the wedding and EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!! We could not have been happier with the music throughout both the ceremony and the reception.

I actually chose Scratch based upon the great reviews that I read about them...I had never seen one of their DJ's at an actual event. I hope that my review helps another bride!

DJ Alkaline from Scratch Weddings DJ'ed our wedding. We couldn't have been more happy with their service! Tomas did exactly what we asked, he played music all night that was exactly in line with our style and tastes (which was a mix of 80s, oldies, turn of the millenium hip hop, house/dance). He emcee'd just enough to get the crowd going on the dance floor and then let the music and party take on a life of it's own. He was polite and accommodating to guests and played requests that fit into the musical stylings of the evening. DJ Alkaline showed up on time, dressed professionally, didn't mispronounce any names (which was quite a feat), and really helped carry the evening along in a smooth and flowing manner. We would absolutely recommend Scratch and DJ Alkaline to other brides and grooms to be!

We got married at a loft space in NYC and hired DJ Alias from Scratch to DJ the event. We had seen him at a venue in Manhattan, then were treated to an in-person private meeting at Scratch where he spun some of our favorite songs...we were hooked! DJ Alias perfectly set the mood at the wedding, from the song choices to the transitions to speaking only when it was necessary:-) Everyone LOVED the music, and we tore up the dance floor. We would highly recommend Scratch, and especially DJ Alias!

From reading all the reviews about scratchweddings as our DJ service before finally picking them, we were anticipating great service. And that was what we got. The coordinators at Scratchweddings (Monica and Dana) helped us plan for our DJ service as needed before the wedding efficiently. They did not bother us with too much communication but they also gave us reminders when we needed to get details ready and helped wrap things together right before the wedding. Our DJ, DJ Ollie, was a great DJ. He stuck with songs that we listed (usually we hear DJs will choose their own songs based on your recommended list but do not actually use any on the list, but DJ Ollie used the songs we gave and also nicely tied in others that fit very well) and played exactly the songs we wanted for activities like the introductions, the last dance, etc. He was also very detail-oriented, making sure he understood the pronounciations of all the names that he would be announcing (even down to our siblings) and adapted well when we had any last minute changes. He worked very well with the venue's maitre'd to ensure that everything was coordinated well that day at the reception. What surprised me even more was that he was very polite and friendly (some DJs can be rather strong-headed in doing things the way they want but DJ Ollie was very open to what we wanted him to do). We also got many compliments for the DJ's music and style, especially someone who asked us for our DJ's contact information and another who was impressed with how DJ Ollie did his scratching and transitioned between songs nicely. The DJ did a wonderful job and I would recommend him and Scratchweddings to anyone!

My husband is huge into music and it was very important that we had a top-notch DJ. We spoke with Scratch and liked what they had to offer so after receiving a list of available DJs, we met with one of them and really liked him so we booked him through Scratch. 2 months before the wedding we got a message that the DJ we chose had underperformed and was no longer with the company. Although we were disappointed, these things happen, and it's how the company handles such situations that matters. Fortunately for us, Scratch was very professional. They immediately sent us other available DJs and we ultimately booked DJ Cool Out and scheduled a meeting. He was very personable and really understood what we wanted. Scratch sent us worksheets to fill out with what we wanted, name pronunciations, must play, do not play, etc, and a week before the wedding we had a phone conference with Cool Out and Kimerie, our Scratch rep. We ironed out every detail and were confident coming off the call. The day of, everything went perfectly. The music was seamless and Cool Out kept the dance floor packed. We even had a situation with a crazy guest - the mother of the groom. After her stunts at my husband's brother's wedding and sister's wedding, we warned Cool Out about what she mught pull. My sister in law was hesitant because she also warned her DJ and he still let 3 "surprises" happen, but Cool Out was extremely professional and we were able to handle the situation without incident. Our guests loved him and said that after attending other, less seamless weddings, they truly appreciated what an amazing job Cool Out really did.

We had “DJ As One” for our wedding cocktail hour and reception at the Rosemont Manor in Berryville, VA and he was professional from the beginning to the end. His performance exceeded our expectations and with all the great wedding reviews he received, it's no surprise he was a pro at handling all the unexpected variables that come into play during the wedding day. From the moment we heard his music tracks, we knew he was the DJ best suited for us. The song selections he suggested for catering to our guests and wedding party was excellent and we can’t say enough good things about the job he did. We couldn't picture using or recommending a better DJ!

I really can't say enough about Scratch Weddings and DJ Jon Blak. My biggest fear was that people wouldn't dance - and while my venue is gorgeous, it does have more of a "mingling" vibe than an all-night dance party.

I shouldn't have given it a second thought. DJ Jon Blak not only had the crowd on the dance floor all night long, he did it to music that Frank and I loved and selected. He politely "bounced" all requests that we would have hated, and blended motown, metal and folk like he's been doing it his whole life.

He had none of that awful DJ patter, and looked and sounded smooth as silk. My 84 year-old grandma says "I would hire that disc jockey for any party I throw." Her friends should be so lucky.

I had my doubts dealing with a place like this, I thought I could find a live band or DJ some other way in NYC, after all, this is NY and I have a few friends of friends, didn't want a cheesy wedding DJ, etc. I decided to give Scratch a try because of the other reviews I read. I was not disappointed. From the first conversation I felt like they were professional and knew what they were doing. You get thee DJ options after your initial conversation. They give you pictures and video clips of the DJ's themselves speaking to why they decided to do weddings-most if not all of the DJ's are actual DJs in the area, they do MORE than weddings-and they give you a sample of the DJ doing their thing. My husband and I took no time to agree on DJ Center. Next step, you meet with the DJ and a scratch rep to talk through things and see the DJ spin live. Again, a professional, knowledgeable, flexible process. They worked with me on a payment plan which I very much appreciated as we were paying for this ourselves-but it was worth every penny. DJ Center did not disappoint. During the wedding we had so many people, including my parents, who complimented the DJ, his music selections...he was entertaining and really read the crowd. At one point he even got my whole family on the dance floor, I almost died. I never thought I would see the day my dad shook his thing-ever-let alone a dance floor where there where other people around! Thank you Scratch for everything...you helped make our wedding day a success!!

I can't say enough good things about scratch weddings. I wanted perfection for the wedding and of all the things I had to worry about for my wedding, this was not one of them! They far exceeded expectations before and after the wedding!
Pre wedding - Scratch weddings was incredibly professional - they thought of everything, were super organized and incredibly responsive to any of my questions or requests (they even found some crazy german music my german husband requested!). In short, they had everything under control.
At the wedding - Our DJ (DJ Jon Blak) was perfect - I lost count of how many compliments I got on the music he played, his incredible announcing voice and how kind he was.
I would HIGHLY recommend Scratch Weddings to anyone - I promise you won't regret it!

We hired Scratch Weddings for our August wedding and selected DJ Rell as our DJ. I emphasized to Scratch and DJ Rell that my husband and I LOVE music and dancing and they definitely took this to heart in setting the mood at our reception. The dance floor was never empty and everyone had a wonderful time! DJ Rell also made sure to play Spanish music for our families like we requested and it was just the right amount of variety. My husband and I, as well as our guests, had the BEST time at our wedding and Scratch & DJ Rell definitely contributed to that =) I would definitely recommend to family and friends :)

I went with Scratch because I was familiar with the academy in New York and I knew they'd have real DJs, not someone who creates an iTunes list. I was not disappointed at all.

I have always been a big music fan. The husband not so much. So this was very much my task. The whole Scratch organization is completely professional from the sales person, to the coordinator, to the DJ himself. They gave us 3 DJs to listen to and let us pick our favorite.

We picked DJ Aristocat based on his musical choices and mixing ability. He was fantastic. He was very patient when I gave him my incredibly long list of music that I thought the guests would like (only a few must plays), and he did a great job reading the crowd and picking the right music at the right time. My more music-obsessed friends all told me he was great and I couldn't agree more. If you appreciate a DJ with vast musical taste and top notch mixing/beat-matching skills I highly recommend him.

Our DJ (Tracktion) and the team at Scratch (Monica and Dana) were very easy to work with, great knowledge of music, very helpful with overall planning details, and, to top it off, the most reasonably priced of all the DJs we contacted. We would readily recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding DJ.

We had DJ Dan Chaves, and could not have asked for better. I just got back from a wedding where they missed the music cues to play the entrance songs and actually forgot to play some songs.

With Scratch you get professional DJs that understand the importance of the day and really make sure to do their part. DJ Dan also knew how to read the crowd to play the slower or faster or more current songs, which was perfect. Everyone had an amazing time dancing towards the end of the night.

Their responsiveness is amazing as well.

If you want your wedding to be the best party you've ever been to, then you need to hire a DJ from Scratch Weddings. We were lucky enough to have DJ Schemes travel from D.C. to Richmond for our summer wedding, and it was so worth every penny! The dance floor was packed from start to finish, and Schemes was fantastic. He provided a mash-up of old school hip-hop and stuff you hear on the radio now. He jumped in to help my hubby and I with our first dance song (which was a last minute change) without missing a beat. The entire experience with scracth weddings was flawless. Would recommend and hire them for any future events.

Working with Scratch was AMAZING! The whole process went smoothly and it was a lot of fun. Dana (our correspondent) made sure everything was just what we wanted.

Choosing the DJ was a great experience too. It was fun to view videos and read about the DJs to choose the best fit for us. We ended up choosing DJ Ollie to spin at our wedding and we were blown away! Having a few conversations with DJ Ollie and Dana prior to the wedding really let them know our tastes and likes and the feeling we were going for. They listened to our vision for the day and once the day of the wedding came, DJ Ollie did not disappoint. He played all the songs we wanted to hear, a great mix. Our dance floor was PACKED the whole night! Everyone raved about how fun the wedding was and a huge part of that is because DJ Ollie really rocked. I would definitely recommend Scratch Weddings & DJ Ollie in particular, if you're in the NJ/NY area.

My husband Alex and I got married this past June at the Foundry. We were impressed with DJ Stef Nava and the entire Scratch Weddings crew from start to finish. Scratch was quick to answer any of my questions, and one of the few vendors that I dealt with that e-mailed me to keep things going on schedule before I e-mailed them (and when you’re already a busy bride, that is really appreciated). They made sure that they were 110% prepared.

On the day of the wedding, Stef was amazing. All of our guests, young and old, were out on the floor dancing and having a great time. Several guests came up to me and told me that she was the best DJ they’d ever heard and that it was the most fun they’d ever had a wedding. Stef played a lot of my suggestions, but also mixed up it up with tracks she picked that blended well with our choices. The whole time, the music still felt like a reflection of my husband and I as a couple, and I really appreciated that. I would whole-heartedly recommend Scratch to any couples looking for a great wedding music.

The single most important decision for me for our wedding was the music since I love to dance and so do the people around me. Scratch was amazing from the beginning giving us a selection of DJs that aligned with our music type - it was hard to select among the choices, but we're so happy that we selected DJ JVC. He was absolutely amazing and everyone had a great time! The only time people were not up dancing was during dinner. Everyone is still raving about how great he was and how, mostly because of him, our wedding was the most fun people have been to in a while. He knew how to read the crowd, the music blended perfectly from one song to the next, and he respected all our wishes that we discussed prior to the wedding. He also had very limited time to set everything up at our vendor due to a wedding just before mine, but he was able to get everything done without delay and did three sets for us: Ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour and reception music. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking to have a great party!

Scratch Weddings and DJ Drew Izm definitely brought our wedding to the next level. Charlottesville, VA doesn't have a wide range of DJ options, especially for the wide range of music we were hoping to play [Hip Hop, R&B, 80's, Funk, Soul and the Beach Boys]

Initially, the folks at Scratch Weddings [Kimerie, Dana and Monica] offered quite a few new & fresh options to us, but ultimately we found Drew Izm through a separate search just before he joined Scratch Weddings. I'd call it serendipity.

Scratch Weddings was on the ball with the accountability pieces: logistics, equipment, professionalism etc. so you definitely know that those bases are covered. The price is also fair if you book early [more than 9 months out] from there, all you have to worry about is the music. They also provided PA system for the ceremony for a little extra, but the audio quality was worth it.

On to the reception: My wife will tell you that I am a music junkie....very hard to please. I'm usually the one making the playlists for the parties etc. so it was tough giving the reins over to someone else for the BIG DAY, but if there's anyone that can make it ALL GOOD its Drew Izm.

He took our massive playlist and managed to play just about every song on it via some excellent mixing and impeccable song timing. He had his finger on the pulse on the crowd and knew when to play what and for how long...so we didn't get "too much" of a song...never too little either...it was just right all night. The dance floor was bumpin as soon as MJ started playing. All of our guests [and I mean all of them] commented on how great the DJ was...and these are some hard-to-please people as well ;-) The biggest problem people had was figuring out when to take a break, since each jam was better than the last one!

Drew even went the extra mile and recorded his live mix to an .mp3 file that he sent to us after the wedding, so we always have his tunes to jam to on every anniversary....or the next cook-out.

Needless to say, We highly recommend Drew Izm and Scratch Weddings to tend to every musical need on your wedding day.

For a bunch of the categories above, I would give more than 5 stars if I could! I was a ridiculously disorganized bride, and on top of that my dad got really sick a few months before my wedding so for a while I thought I was going to cancel the big wedding and have a small ceremony so my dad could be there. I was so non-commital for so long with Scratch Weddings, but Kat& DJ Dan were beyond professional& flexible. They were super nice &responsive throughout the process. They guided me through everything&are unbelievably knowledgeable about so many kinds of music. I was originally going to choose a DJ that wasn't connected to a DJ company because I was afraid Scratch would be generic/cheesy/corporate. But once I spoke to Kat I realized that Scratch isn't like that --this isn't your Bat Mitzvah DJ!Their DJs are well-known& are career DJs--DJ Dan knew my venue&seemed excited for my night-he was great at introducing us&guiding guests to their tables&through the events of the night. His presence most definitely added to my night. I HIGHLY recommend Scratch Weddings -- the next time I need a DJ I will be going back to Scratch for sure.

I HIGHLY recommend Scratch Weddings for your DJ services. DJ Trife played our wedding on 11/11/11 and he was AMAZING. Our guests danced during the entire reception...all the way up until 1 am. He had a very diverse mix of music, and was able to change it up based on the preferences of our guests. Dana was our Music Coordinator, and she made sure that every detail was handled professionally. Our guests raved about the music selections and that they've never danced so much at a wedding reception!

I HIGHLY recommend Scratch Weddings for your DJ services. DJ Trife played our wedding on 11/11/11 and he was AMAZING. Our guests danced during the entire reception...all the way up until 1 am. He had a very diverse mix of music, and was able to change it up based on the preferences of our guests. Dana was our Music Coordinator, and she made sure that every detail was handled professionally. Our guests raved about the music selections and that they've never danced so much at a wedding reception!

Thank you so much! Read less

I cannot recommend this company enough! I agree with previous reviewers in that dealing with this company was the easiest thing about planning my wedding (which was so appreciated since planning a wedding in Miami from a different state is not that enjoyable). Their advertisements are totally accurate. For example, NO cheese! I was so worried about having a cheesy wedding dj. The djs they provided were real Miami club djs, but they also know how to cater to what is required of a wedding, in a totally sophisticated way. I chose DJ Supersede. He was COMPLETELY AMAZING!! I used him for my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He was on point the entire night. I gave him a lot of latitude for the cocktail hour and he nailed it. We had discussed very rat pack/Ocean’s 11/swanky South Beach nightclub-type music. And man did he deliver. I also gave him a list of my favorite songs that I wanted to hear during the reception and he used that to determine the type of music I like and he, again, he was right on point. Everyone was raving about how great the music was. Having a “real” dj there also seemed to add an air of sophistication to the wedding, which was great.
Scratch also touts themselves as having “unmatched professionalism.” Again, this could not be more accurate. I dealt with Monica initially, then Dana. Both were unbelievable friendly and helpful, and were great in guiding me through the process. I really wish more businesses were run like this one. It was so great to deal with people who know what they are doing, are highly responsive, and seem to actually understand customer service. Kudos to Scratch!

Scratch was THE PERFECT DJ company for our wedding. Both Kat and Dana were incredibly helpful in the months leading up to the wedding, and DJ Dan Chaves did an insane job spinning our night. He really listened to our requests, splicing together our favorite songs, genres, and even some stuff we love, but simply never thought to include. He was half DJ, half mindreader. Multiple times that night and even more times in the following days, family and friends have asked where we found Dan. We were and are pleased to recommend Dan and Scratch 100%.

Working with Scratch Weddings was the least stressful and most fun part of the planning process! Everybody was so helpful and really worked with us to make sure we had exactly what we wanted on our wedding day! The day of our wedding, DJ Trife was totally reading the crowd and playing everything they wanted to hear. Some of my family members didn't sit down the entire evening. He provided the perfect soundtrack to our wedding day and helped to make it as memorable as it was! People are still talking about how awesome the music was!

Fuse was awesome. The tone for the night was set from the very first dance and the floor stayed full the entire time from there on... Unheard of! Comments and compliments about his song selections came rolling in immediately after the reception ended and have not stopped. It's pretty tough to get a diverse crowd of ages and cultures dancing together to music they don't typically enjoy, but there was absolutely no barrier on the dance floor. It was amazing!

I've worked with Scratch in the past on different events, so I was trusting of the process to begin with, but Fuse was an absolute fit for the vibe we were seeking and he provided it and more... not to mention, some of the single ladies later asked about him..

My husband researched Scratch Weddings because he wanted something different than your "typical dj" that plays what he/she wants and loves to hear themselves talk. Scratch Weddings was exactly what he was looking for. It didn't take much for us to realize that Scratch Weddings was the perfect fit for us. We were given the opportunity to speak to the DJ prior to booking, and a few weeks before our wedding to ensure that our visions matched. We loved DJ Cool Out and we know our guests enjoyed his music selections just as much. I would highly recommend Scratch Weddings to anyone getting married in the future!

We were so happy we decided to book with Scratch. They were very responsive and professional and when we were introduced to DJ JVC, we knew we made the right choice. We were able to hear him spin at a fashion event prior to booking and loved his style off the bat. He did a great job of mixing some of the songs we requested with his own style and had EVERYONE on the dance floor all night! He played a mix of everything that caterered to all the different age groups and we know this was definitely one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. We were consistently getting compliments on the DJ throughout the night! Go DJ JVC!

I was worried about how it would all work out as it was a small destination wedding, but on the day, Dan was great, played all our favourite music, from start to finish, using our playlist as a guide. It was a great party and wouldn't hesitate in recommending Scratch Weddings. They provide an extremely professional, effective and friendly service.

Scratch Weddings was also awesome off the dance floor. They were soo easy to work with, really took time to find out exactly what we wanted and made sure we were satisfied and comfortable with the plans. Even when we requested an additional speaker setup for a dance performance 2 days before the wedding, they quickly responded and were able to deliver for us at no additional charge. I would recommend Scratch Weddings to anyone looking for great music and a pleasurable experience.

In order to find such a great match, Scratch Weddings consulted with us over the phone about our music tastes and what we wanted for our wedding, sent us samples of a couple of DJs, and we chose from there.
Since the wedding, many of our guests have asked how we found such an amazing DJ!

Honestly was at a loss until I found this company through a random email. We had been to another company prior, with them showing us all their bells and whistles and pricy items. On top of it they were just pushy. So being back at square one, I inquired about the Scratch wedding DJ. I filled out a simple form and BOOM! A representative called me that day asking me questions and what my budget was. They are located in NY but have DJs everywhere, even in Orange County, Ca! Everything was done flawlessly over the phone and email. She sent me pictures of DJs and samples of their work. I picked DJ Fuze and we were on our way! Had a couple of conference calls with Fuze and sent over songs I wished to play at the wedding. When the day came everything went down without a hitch! The cocktail music, the announcements, and the dancing music. He coordinated with our caterer/planner and it was perfect! Everyone was on the dance floor having a great time! The price was reasonable and the quality was excellent! Don't fall for those dog and pony shows. Scratch weddings know what to do! Thanks DJ Fuze! You made our wedding a party we'll never forget!

The staff and our DJ, Dan Chavez, worked with us to throughout our entire planning process to ensure that the music would reflect our range of music interests (dirty southern hip hop, mainstreem hip hop, indie rock, reggae, 80s, doowop) and keep our guests dancing. They were so nice and organized and the music was incredible. He was so good at reading the crowd that we had old folk dancing to Lil Jon. Thank you so much for helping us throw a rocking party!

We had a very positive experience working with Scratch Weddings. From the very beginning we were impressed with their professionalism and response time. Most people have some random old guy with a cheap tuxedo on, and a giant laser light set up - we wanted class, and we chose the right DJ company for the job. Our account manager ensured that we had the right DJ, and they were meticulous about our tastes and how the evening would be planned. DJ Dan was able to incorporate all types of music at the right times to keep the party jumping - he was even able to take our requests on the spot and put it into the mix.

We had a very positive experience working with Scratch Weddings. From the very beginning we were impressed with their professionalism and response time. Most people have some random old guy with a cheap tuxedo on, and a giant laser light set up - we wanted class, and we chose the right DJ company for the job. Our account manager ensured that we had the right DJ, and they were meticulous about our tastes and how the evening would be planned. DJ Dan was able to incorporate all types of music at the right times to keep the party jumping - he was even able to take our requests on the spot and put it into the mix.

When I first spoke with Scratch Events, I explained the type of music I liked and they recommended a DJ for me based on our conversation. I could not have asked for a better DJ, he did an amazing job and completely understood what I wanted. He had the dance floor packed the entire night, played everything I asked for and more. He new exactly what to play at the right time. Everyone (including my parents and their friends) have not stopped talking about how great our DJ was. Our friends had a blast dancing, and I could not be happier with how the night went. There was one point when I took a look around the room, and there wasn't one person sitting in their seat. It was awesome.

Our entire experience working with Scratch Events and DJ Shannon was excellent, I would recommend Scratch Events over and over again. They contacted me to ask me for information on music at certain milestones until our wedding date, they were so organized and professional.

I love Scratch Weddings! From the beginning, they worked with me step by step to make my wedding special. Their representatives were super-professional, kept in touch regularly, guided me through the process, and were very committed to what I wanted for my wedding (i.e. not pushy at all). I worried about music most of all and they made it easy. The DJ they provided (Ani Quinn) was excellent--professional, friendly, and open to all our requests. We had an eclectic group of guests and his music choices appealed to everyone. Price-wise, they were comparable and reasonable. I highly recommend them!

I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, quality of service, attention to detail, friendliness and talent that Scratch Weddings provides. Devon Stein was an all-star account manager and DJ JVC was amazing to work with. His transitions kept everyone on the dance floor and there wasn't a minute that it was cleared. Everyone was so flexible and easy to work with. I highly recommend working with this operation and the two aforementioned individuals in particular.

Everyone loved Dj Grafitti and said I threw the best wedding they have ever been to. My wedding planner wanted to work with him again and recommend him to other brides. Everyone was up on the floor dancing, from the very young to very old. Everyone was having fun!

I am from LA and I had so many people flying in, I didn't want someone to do the macarena or the chicken dance. DJ Grafitti was AMAZING and could read the crowd. BTW this vendor is more than just NY, they have DJs in Chicago, Detroit, etc.

Our experience working with Scratch was nothing less than wonderful. You were one of the most easy going yet professional vendors we worked with. Kat Parker went above and beyond to ensure that our needs were being met and that we would be matched with the DJ most appropriate for the feel we were trying to achieve at our wedding. DJ Qool Marv was all of this and then some, professional and easy going and totally attuned to the type of party we wanted. He more than delivered and we are so grateful! Everyone had a blast and danced the night away, which was all that we wanted. Thanks again!

Music has always been a very important part our lives and so it was especially important for us to find the right DJ for our wedding reception. We went with Scratch at the recommendation of a friend and are so glad we did. DJ Dan Chaves was amazing to work with and gave us the best party ever. Our wedding had a lot of different age groups present so it was really crucial to find someone that could please everyone and keep all ages on the dance floor the entire night. Dan succeeded in a big way. He weaved and mixed all the genres we requested seamlessly. It was perfect! Scratch Weddings matched us with a great DJ and delivered beyond our expectations. Thank You!

We couldn't have been happier with our experience with Scratch. They were a pleasure to work with and DJ JVC was AMAZING at the wedding.
My husband and I are ex-nyc hipster/music snob types, who were worried about having a cheesy dj who played only top 40. Scratch is cool, classy and professional. Great taste that's unique, but appealed to all age groups. We're heard nothing but glowing reviews from friends and family. I was actually sore all weekend from dancing so much at our wedding. Our pictures taken on the dance floor are by far the best in our wedding album.

Also, the Sales/Management staff at Scratch are incredibly helpful and responsive. They offered up great ideas and worked well with my wedding venue. Planning a wedding can be very stressful, but my DJ was something I didn't have to sweat because Scratch was so great.

The only negative, if you can call it that, was that during the father/daughter & mother/son dances the other father/daughters or mother/sons were supposed to be invited out onto the dance floor and they weren't. But other than that he was amazing. The mix of songs was exactly what we wanted and loved every minute of it. Thanks again.

We were very pleased with our experience with Scratch Weddings. We had DJ Premonition emcee our wedding and perform as our DJ for the reception. He did a great job mixing and was very understated -- which was our preference. He played great music and just did a great job overall.

Scratch Weddings also was great to work with. They were very easy to get in touch with and DJ Premonition came early to set up. Scratch Weddings did not charge me extra when DJ Premonition worked beyond the originally-stated hours. Overall, I had a great experience with Scratch Weddings and DJ Premonition.

This is a national company that can match local DJs (real ones, who spin) with couples. The DJ (DJ revuelo) was incredibly flexible, especially since he gave an extra hour of music when our outside cocktail hour turned inside given the weather dropped 30degrees in two days. He kept his announcements to a minimum per our request and kept people dancing with smooth transitions between songs to keep all moving. It was a great alternative to DJs who just are iPod jockeys with no real plan for the music. It was harder to get people to dance later in the night but that was partly the crowd but earlier we had 6yo to 80yo on the dance floor (including my step mom who "never dances"). He also adjusted the volume responsively when I asked. All in all, good investment

I really loved worked with Scratch Weddings. From the start, we had a dedicated sales person who helped us pick the right DJ ( we picked Jon Blak). As we got closer to the wedding, we had a dedicated Account Manager who went over all of our needs along with the DJ before the wedding. All of our requests were carried out perfectly. I think at some points i felt that the room could have been read better as I wanted more people to dance later in the evening but I blame that mostly on the guests.

Scratch Weddings was great to work with. They were very responsive from the beginning, which is how I decided to book with them. The other DJ companies I was looking at never returned my emails. Everyone that I worked with was very professional and nice. We booked with DJ Bounce, who was very easy going and flexible with our changes. We were running late and he accommodated nicely. He played the right music at the right time and even MC'ed our wedding. The only thing that made me a little nervous is that I did not meet DJ Bounce ahead of time. Scratch scheduled a conference call the week of the wedding where we discussed the specifics. After the conference call, my mind was at ease and I realized it wasn't that big of a deal.

He incorporated all of the different genres we asked for, while keeping the dance floor packed the entire time. I definitely give Mark and Scratch two thumbs up!

I can't say enough good things about this vendor. They are attentive and listen to what you want with regard to the music playing at your event and THEY DELIVER! One of the easiest things to deal with with my Wedding. We personally wanted to avoid the "DJ on the Mic" sort of thing that a lot of others tend to like when having a wedding DJ... we wanted more a club vibe with the music moving with the feel of the crowd.. DJ Alias was awesome and knew how to ride that wave. So so incredibly glad I found them! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!

So I live in California and I had a destination wedding in Miami. I thought it would was going to be difficult trying to find a DJ but I stumbled on Scratch weddings and filled out their online form, from there it was all-so-easy. Julie from Scratch weddings then contacted me and sent me some of their screened DJs in the Miami area. We then saw the different DJ recommendations and chose DJ Mike Kruz. He was AMAZING!!! DJ Mike Kruz surpassed our high expectations. So,my fiance and I wanted someone who was going to be fun and versatile because his family is a little conservative and my family isn't. But we both knew that we wanted everyone to dance. And that's exactly what Mike did. We just let Mike know what we wanted and didn't want and he did the rest. We booked him for the the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. My guest were talking about how great the music was for cocktail hour and then he had everyone sweating on the dance floor. It was perfect. All in all it was worth the $$$. If i could do it over again, I still would chose Scratch weddings with DJ Mike Kruz.

Scratch Weddings (and especially our DJ As-One, out of the DC Metro area) provided great entertainment for our wedding. As-One spun continuously through the entire night and was great on tailoring the music to the various crowds (starting off with older hits and then moving to fresher stuff as it got later). As-One was great with transitions, with feeling out what worked with the crowd and what didn't, and kept the dance floor fairly busy the entire night. It was pretty cool to have a real club-style DJ at the wedding and we got a lot of positive comments on his performance. It also helped he was a really nice guy! In terms of the paperwork, DJ finding process, and scheduling, Scratch Weddings was very responsive and professional. They clearly have this process down.

We were slightly concerned about the entire process because you don't actually meet with your DJ (outside of preparatory conference calls) until the day of the wedding but everything turned out fine. The only minor negative was that DJ As-One mispronounced the bride's last name (after we had provided pronunciations in writing and over the phone). Some of our guests noticed but it wasn't a big deal. For any DJ / band, we'd recommend that couples confirm name pronunciations on the day of the wedding.

We were slightly concerned about the entire process because you don't actually meet with your DJ (outside of preparatory conference calls) until the day of the wedding but everything turned out fine. The only minor negative was that DJ As-One mispronounced the bride's last name (after we had provided pronunciations in writing and over the phone). Some of our guests noticed but it wasn't a big deal. For any DJ / band, we'd recommend that couples confirm name pronunciations on the day of the wedding. Read less

I had DJ Select for my wedding. He did a great job and read the crowd very well. My husband and I have a broad range in our musical taste, but our guests may not always agree. DJ Select took all of our suggestions and tailored it to the response of our guests on the dance floor. Song transitions were also very important to us and Select was absolutely seamless. During dinner service, the volume was lowered as not to interfere. We had a conference call to make sure we were all on the same page. Scratch provided a list of songs for suggestions, which was so helpful. We were also put at ease knowing there was a backup DJ in case anything happened.

We went with DJ Dan Chavez...great ability to read the crowd, skillful song transitions and knowledge of how the party should flow. We only had a slight issue with one song we had requested being a different version (but honestly, the versions were so close, it wasn't a big deal at all), but after the last song of the night, our guests were shouting for an encore. Need I say more?

DJ Stef Nava is great! The week before the wedding, we asked her to help us pull together ceremony and cocktail hour music, as well as the music for the reception for the wedding and she brought everything she needed to pull that all together. She was a little late on cueing some entrance music for our bridal party, but she really got the crowd going all night. Our contact Dana was a pleasure to work with as well – very responsive and respectful.

DJ Danga was a perfect fit for our wedding, our venue, and our styles! His mixes and mashups were just the right thing to get all of our guests on the floor, and he understood and supported all of our requests, even the unconventional ones. He organizes his choices not just by BPM, but by key, and it really helps create a flow! I highly recommend him to anyone who really places importance on the music at their event.

Scratch Weddings' policy of not meeting with us in person or finalizing details until two weeks before was a little stressful, but it all worked out in the end when we pushed for a meeting. The administration was flexible and accommodating once we made our needs clear.

From the very beginning Scratch had great customer service and was very friendly. I inquired about a DJ for my wedding and someone responded very quickly. We had a short chat to discuss my wants and needs, and I was then sent three DJ options that matched what I was looking for. We were able to choose which we wanted, and from there we were matched with DJ Burnsi and an operations manager (Sandra) who helped coordinate things with our DJ before the big day. Everyone was very helpful and I always felt like I was in good hands.

When it came to our big day, we couldn't have been more happy with our choice. DJ Burnsi was amazing at reading the crowd and knowing what music choices would keep people dancing. We received many compliments throughout the night about how great the music was and how much fun people were having dancing. DJ Burnsi also checked in with us multiple times throughout the night to make sure everything was going smoothly and we were satisfied. While a bit on the pricier side, I would recommend Scratch and DJ Burnsi - we feel our choice was well worth the money!

Scratch weddings was a wonderful company to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. I booked them before I even had a set date with my venue and they were organized and professional. My groom and I really enjoyed being able to select the DJ we wanted for our wedding. We ended up choosing DJ One Twelve, who was fantastic! He kept the party going the entire night! Would recommend to anyone.

DJ K Ross in Buffalo, was awesome! He did a great job, and overall the whole Scratch DJ Wedding team was helpful, and super flexible.

I was even able to meet our DJ a few days before to check out the venue, and go over everything with him; he was very easy going and easy to work with.

On the day of, he was great, super helpful, and flexible with all the last minute changes and minor details. He didn't play a single song from our do-not-play list. And kept the dance floor going. My fiance was a little disappointed that more of "his" indie/techno music didn't make the play list, but we asked him to keep the dance floor going and play what would keep people out there. The dance floor never was not packed, and everyone had a great time. Since the playlist was pretty wedding standard the value wasn't awesome for the price we paid, but we did love his work, and I love the true DJ transitions between songs over the traditional wedding DJ. And overall wouldn't change a thing! Thanks again!!!

Nothing has as much of an effect on setting the tone of your reception as the music and Scratch Weddings delivered 100%. We asked our DJ, DJ Schemes, to make it a non-stop dance party start to finish that guest of all ages would enjoy and that's exactly what he did. Some quotes from some of our guests:

"I told myself I would go get a drink at the bar when there was a break in the music or a song came on that I didn't like and I was dancing for the next 45 minutes." - 70 year old friend of my parents
"I never understood hiring a DJ when you could just make an iPod playlist and hook it up to some speakers, but this guy makes me see what effect a great DJ can have." - a groomsman

Our DJ played the songs we wanted, kept the party moving, and everyone left feeling like it was an awesome time. They also set up the sound for the ceremony. The DJ was on time despite potential traffic problems due to our wedding location and everything was exactly as we discussed in the pre-wedding phone call. I couldn't give a higher recommendation to Scratch Weddings and DJ Schemes.

The only tiny tiny tiny issue was that we would have liked to have talked everything through much earlier than they scheduled our phone call for and we had to go through a Scratch Weddings intermediary instead of just working directly with the DJ. (We did get to speak to the DJ directly on the phone before the wedding, though...it's just that all of the other business went through other people first.) Also, they were a little more expensive than other DJs, but you DEFINITELY get your money's worth in terms of DJ quality and peace of mind; the DJ was NOT one of the things we worried about because Scratch was so professional with us from start to finish.

Scratch Weddings provided the entertainment for our evening. Dana was our day to day coordinator and DJ RT was our artist. In general, as a team they were great. Dana was quick to respond to questions, very helpful with keeping track of upcoming deadlines and a pleasure to work with. We were certain of what we didn't want - a carnival barker type DJ who would get people into endless conga lines..... Oy!!!! We also wanted someone who knew music VERY well - 40's through contemporary - and could seamlessly merge the generations' music. Scratch provided a pretty cool DJ match service where, via questionnaire, they helped fine tune your DJ selection and guide you to the best fit for your event.

DJ RT was a great guy and knew his music well. He was able to take all of our suggestions, requests, etc., and make the evening exactly what we wanted. He was very helpful as we decided what the entrance songs for the bridal party would be, and worked pretty tirelessly to show us multiple edits of each song. He was prompt on the day of, and followed our requests to a T. And when it came time to announce the wedding and bridal party, he even got all the name pronunciations right!!!! All our guests loved the music, and he kept people of all generations on the dance floor all night!!!!

My only comment is that I would have really liked to speak with DJ RT much sooner. We had our first consultative call about one week prior to our wedding, and although i had filled out a music form, and had been in touch with Dana, I felt like meeting RT was an important piece, and it did feel a bit rushed to me. Had we done it even one week earlier, it would have been a much more relaxed experience.

BUT, all in all, I loved working with this team and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a professional DJ. The pros definitely outweigh the one con and they were amazing!!!!

Thanks all!!!

We used Scratch DJs for our May 2012 wedding, and DJ Cool Out (Chris) was our DJ. He was phenomenal! We loved the music he played, our guests were dancing, and everyone had a great time. They were not your typical cheesy wedding DJ company where you have some middle-aged guy named Todd who shows up in an ugly vest and plays YMCA and Let's Get it Started all night (but if that was what you wanted, I am sure they could accomodate you!)

DJ Cool Out and the team at Scratch were professional and thorough at every step, taking time to talk to us about exactly the vibe and songs we were looking for, and creating a plan for the announcements throughout the night. DJ Cool Out was super responsive when I made some last minute changes to the order of events mid-reception. When one of our groomsmen requested a Soul train line, he didn't blink and spun it flawlessly. It is one of my favorite memories of the night.

Just wonderful! The only reason I took them down a notch on value is because they were slightly more expensive than the competition, even with a Groupon. However, do what you can do get them in your budget. No one really cares what the flowers look like, but they will remember if you had a great DJ like DJ Cool Out!

I really loved Scatch and our DJ As-One. All of the guests had the best time because he was able to read his audience and play all the music we had requested. The only reason I didn't give five stars on every category is that he messed up our processional music. Fortunately no one but my husband and I noticed but because we had worked so hard on the music it was a bummer to hear it botched like it was. Other than that, everything was awesome about this company. Everyone we worked with was very professional and met all of our needs. I will definitely use them in the future and recommend them highly.

Both my husband and I are really into music, and wanted to plan most of the songs played at our wedding. We were shocked how many DJ services gave us the line "You can make requests, but we know what people want to hear." Scratch was totally different. They welcomed our suggestions and indeed played just about all of them, throwing in some fun surprises as well. We have kind of eclectic taste - indie rock, hip hop, '60s soul - and DJ Jeff worked them all together brilliantly. Best of all he had everyone dancing, from our friends to our parents friends. I had 3 people ask me to burn them CDs of our music, all from different generations. While they are slightly more expensive than a lot of other DJ services, I think Scratch was worth it, and I would definitely recommend them to any music lover planning a wedding.

He was able to respect my husband's musical taste, but still get everyone out on the dance floor. I think even the non-dancers got out for at least one dance! Many of our friends and family commented on the great music selection and the emceeing skills of our DJ. Again, we couldn't be more happy with our experience with DJ Cool Out!!

Of all the choices a couple needs to make in the wedding planning process, choosing the right DJ was the easiest for us. I've attended many weddings in the past (at a certain point, more than 10 in one year!) and so, I had a pretty good idea of what I would have wanted for my wedding music when the time came. We definitely did not want a wedding DJ that needed to use silly gimmicks or assistants in costumes to get the crowd going - we just wanted a great DJ that could read the crowd and work them up through mixing good music.

We were already familiar with Scratch because a friend of ours had used them for their wedding a couple of years ago. We had originally requested the same DJ that we heard at our friend's wedding, but he was unavailable. This made me a bit nervous since we had about 400 guests to entertain, and we wanted to make sure that whoever we got would be able to work a crowd up. We had some friends that naturally loved to dance, but we also had a good amount of people that needed to warm up to the very idea of dancing. Scratch listened to our concerns, along with our music tastes, and suggested DJay Jung for us. After interviewing him and following up with other references, we booked him for our wedding, which took place in March.

DJay Jung turned out to be the right choice for us. He was great at reading the crowd and getting the party going. By the end of the night, the dance floor was still filled with people (mostly sober, too!) and the only disappointment was that we didn't book him for a longer period. We received many compliments on the reception afterwards - on how fun it was and how great the DJ was. The true testimonials came in when we started receiving a few inquiries from others who were planning their weddings and had heard great things about our wedding DJ from our attendees.

I rated Scratch/DJay Jung highest on all but one category - 'value.' The only reason why I gave this 4 stars was that we were on a tight budget and felt that it could've been a better value if Scratch also provided or included lighting equipment when we booked. Coming out from it and knowing that our guests enjoyed their time at our wedding, however, made every penny worth it.

Scratch was great to work with, from the contract process, to the conference calls with Dana and DJ Alias, we were very comfortable with the service going into the wedding. The only comment was that there was a lot of emphasis on creating our own list of songs/genres to play and on the day of the performance could have been a little more flexible when it came to changes. However, we got everything we asked for and more and the party was great. DJ Alias is a true talent and we would highly recommend this vendor above others for their professionalism and value.

We had DJ Schemes at our wedding and he was awesome. Everything from the music he played to the amount he talked vs. not talked was perfect. Guests danced the entire time and he mixed old and new songs perfectly to keep everyone happy. My husband was able to say goodbye and thank him, but I wasnt. I would have hugged him because he was amazing!!

We hired Scratch to spin our wedding because we wanted a real club-style, fun environment. We checked out their website and were thoroughly impressed with the sample mixes they had posted.

Scratch was absolutely thorough with us. We had two phone meetings with our DJ (As-One), facilitated by Scratch management. They helped guide us through the process of planning our evening. They were very open to our varied and diverse taste in music, and everything that was played at the wedding went over very well.
Our DJ couldn't have been nicer. He was on time and ready to roll when our reception was set to begin. He really did a great job of getting everyone up and dancing through most of the night--without having to resort to cheesy line-dance kind of music, which we really didn't want.

Our only (very slight) negative comment was that we talked through the order of things in advance (entrances, first dances, and when speeches were supposed to happen) and we still had to prompt the DJ to announce some of those events. It wasn't a terribly big deal, as everyone was having fun. But if you're a stickler for exactly how you want the evening run (and you don't have a wedding coordinator to move things along smoothly) you might want to be very very explicit about how and when you want things to happen.

As-One was more than willing to do whatever we asked, so it wasn't a problem. But it might have been a little better to have the DJ in charge of the overall event.

We would hire them again in a heartbeat, though, and we highly recommend them.

Scratch wedding was the best option for us when deciding upon a wedding DJ. We wanted someone who would be on par with our music preferences and the general atmosphere of the wedding. We were able to speak with our DJ on the phone and meet him in person at a local hip diner where he spins on the weekends. We loved working with DJ CoolOut and he read our crowd like a true DJ. Turns out the older crowd had the most fun at our wedding and CoolOut was able to merge our song choices with who was up off their chairs and getting down!

We were thrilled with DJ Lil’ Ray and Scratch Weddings. The planning process was totally seamless thanks to Scratch’s online music library and planning software, and we had an absolutely fantastic time at our reception. DJ Lil’ Ray listened to exactly what we wanted but also brought her own expertise in reading the crowd and what they wanted - to make sure we kept the party going all night. We literally had the entire guest list, from age 6 to 88, dancing right up until the last song and telling us for weeks how great of a time they had. Highly recommend!

Our wedding DJ was Vida. We had a couple of conversations with the coordinator, Kat, and with Vida and we felt very comfortable that Vida understood what we really did and didn't like in terms of music. My husband and I first bonded over our love of the same bands / music, so having the right music was important for us.

The best comment / compliment we received from a guest was that the songs definitely reflected our music tastes. So, on that score, I think that's what a DJ is supposed to do - they should know your tastes, but also know how to read a crowd and get a crowd dancing.

I was a little annoyed at one point when one song was played incorrectly, but hey - I think only ONE person noticed besides us, and anyways, that qualified as the biggest "disaster" of the day. As in, it hardly constitutes a disaster when 99% of the guests didn't notice. But that was the only problem and in fairness, I probably should have had a direct conversation with the DJ (should have taken all of five minutes) before the wedding.

I recommend Scratch if you don't want some old guy with a paunch, a weird goatee, and a music collection entirely from one or two decades ago spinning tunes for you.

I loved working with Scratch Weddings! I considered myself a very low-key, low-stress bride during the planning process and did not want to schedule a bunch of meetings with a bunch of vendors - I just wanted to find the right one. Choosing Scratch for my wedding was definitely the right decision.

My intro call with Jenn was so low pressure - she was fun, friendly and professional. She laid out all the details and then sent me videos of all the DJs I could choose from (her recommendations based on our chat about my wedding plans). This was great - she was able to translate my plans and recommend some great DJs who would be a good fit.

I then worked with Sandra, our music coordinator, to plan out details and coordinate communications with the DJ we selected, DJ Noelle. Sandra continued the low-pressure, low-key communications, which I found super helpful, especially with so many other things to think about.

The day of the wedding, DJ Noelle was incredible! My only request was that she play songs that kept people dancing (rather than my submitting a playlist) and it was the best route to take. She played a few slow songs for the older guests to dance too, and tons of fun, up-beat songs that had everyone dancing the entire time. She also respected our do-not-play list and was very attentive to our cues (ending the parents dances when we were ready and not letting them drag on too long).

I could not have picked a better company and DJ to work with, and I would highly recommend Scratch to other brides (especially those feeling overwhelmed by the planning process - Scratch made everything so easy)!

**ALSO BASED IN NYC**

While they’re on the more expensive side, you can rest assured that the mixing they do and the intense, joyful vibe they bring are worth it—in my opinion, the DJ is the most important element of a reception, and Scratch Weddings (DJ Alias) simply took care of it.

You don’t interact with the DJ until two weeks before your wedding, but their staff is 100% attentive and interactive, in a very upbeat way, guiding you through the request/playlist process with ease. One thing is, they seem to be barred from playing dirty songs—I wish they had told me in advance!

Overall though, the dancefloor was packed all night long! We had a divided crowd of friends who love dancing to hip-hop and pop, and family who prefer salsa and bachata. We asked that rather than do mini-sets of each genre, they be mixed, and DJ Alias seamlessly integrated both genres to the fullest, creating a non-stop party vibe that was exactly what we were looking for in our wedding. It was heaven! As the bride, I personally went crazy on the dancefloor and enjoyed dancing with everyone in their little groups, seeing how much fun they were having to the music. My 82-year-old Abuelo tore it up, and even some of my husband’s more reserved Southern family was getting crazy by the night’s end! Dancefloor perfection.

The support/sales staff for Scratch Weddings were a pleasure to work with. Very professional and courteous. They responded to emails and questions quickly and that is all you can ask for. The conference call with the DJ a few weeks before the wedding was useful as well to just go over any details that were necessary. On the day of the wedding, the DJ (S-1) arrived in a timely manner to set up his equipment before the guests arrived to the reception. He did a good job of taking our song list and balancing it with the requests from our friends and family. Sometimes, you just have to give the DJ the leeway in reading the crowd. S-1 was even nice enough to let a close friend who had DJ experience spin a short set. All in all, I was happy to have S-1 of Scratch Weddings spin our reception.

I was mostly pleased with my DJ. DJ Eskada read the crowd, honored requests, and created a great playlist based on the mini song list we provided.

However, I wished that we would have been able to meet earlier than one week prior to the wedding, as I felt like there was so much going on that week, and I didn't have time to truly focus on the specifics for the DJ. I would have preferred two sessions, as I felt unprepared for many of the questions that came up during our phone meeting, and I would have liked to take a lot of the questions back to think about them and re-group a second time to discuss.

One of these matters was the first dance. I was asked if I wanted the full song to play or if we could cue the DJ when we wanted her to cut it. We agreed on the phone that I would look over at her and subtly cue if the song was getting too long. I looked over several times towards the end of the song, but the DJ was looking down each time, and we ended up dancing to the entire song anyway. The same goes for the mother/son and father/daughter dance.

In addition, we had discussed the DJ being partial emcee as well. I asked her to not only announce the wedding party, but also engage the crowd lightly, asking people to dance, etc. I felt like the DJ didn't do any emceeing besides making announcements at the beginning of the reception, and then the cake cutting and end of the night announcements. It ended up being fine, as our guests danced on their own, but I would have appreciated my instructions being followed.

Working with Scratch DJs was easy. We worked with Dana (the coordinator) and DJ JVC (the talent) from the NYC area. Dana was well organized and very responsive. When we booked the DJ for the reception, we were asked to complete a music list of all the songs we wanted to hear throughout the night. A week prior to the wedding, we had a conference call with Dana, DJ JVC, myself and my husband. We went over the whole music list and timeline from the entrance to the last dance. All questions were answered and I thought we were all on the same page. When it came time to the reception, the music started off right just as we discussed but then as we got further into the reception a lot of the songs I requested weren't being played. I didn't want to complain because I thought we would get to them but by the end of the night only about 50% of the songs we asked for ended up being played. Granted this was a day wedding and a lot of the guests weren't into dancing, but there were several songs I really wanted to hear and I knew would get a few of our friends moving. The DJ also never stopped to let my husband give a toast as we had mentioned during our conference call the week before - and my husband and I actually didn't even realize this until the wedding was over. We also got very few slow songs played- and we had mentioned we wanted a handful. So in the end I was very upset about all the work that went into this music list and the conferenec call.. it seemed like a waste of time.

Scratch Weddings responded with the following comments:

We are very sorry to hear that you weren’t entirely satisfied with the music provided for your wedding. We take all client reviews very seriously and use them to further improve the experience that our clients have with our DJs and staff.

In the case here with Lauren and Drew’s wedding, we were given a list of 47 songs that you liked, as well as a shorter list of artists and genres that you wanted to hear. During the pre-wedding call with the DJ, none of the given songs were instructed as Must Play tracks. Of the 90 songs that were played over the course of the 4 hour reception, half came directly from the your list of songs and the others were songs representative of the artists/genres given that DJ JVC felt would complement the music selection.

When the few slow songs requested were peppered in but failed to get the couples up to slow dance, DJ JVC opted to read the crowd and keep the party a bit more upbeat.

We apologize if we missed some of your favorites and regret that you didn't request a specific song on the night of, as we happily would have changed course.

We used Scratch DJ because of their national presence and we heard them at a friend's wedding in NYC. They were a little expensive but felt their DJ'ing skills would be worth it. However, the DJ didn't really transition songs that much and he played the whole duration of the song, rather than keeping the music quick. Fairly minor stuff but nonetheless, some of the issues we experienced.
They were professional and were quick to respond to emails and contacts. He arrived on time and set up the equipment early, so that was appreciated.

The DJ was very nice and professional and did a good job as an MC. My issue is that we had specific songs copied and edited in Dropbox for the DJ, with specific instructions given to our wedding manager at Scratch. Either the instructions weren't clearly explained to the DJ or there was confusion with how to use Dropbox. Regardless, a large group of our guests were not satisfied with the order in which the music was played. Highly disappointing given that the music was my main concern and that Scratch was more expensive than every other DJ I spoke with. Scratch should let their clients speak to the DJ more than once during the process. If there was more contact between us and him, I'm sure there would not have been any confusion. At some point, there should have been confirmation from him or our wedding manager that the order in which the music was set up was what we wanted. Some guests also commented that they didn't think there was enough of a mix of music for the older generation. There was also music played during the dinner hour that was not on the list I provided and I gave Scratch a pretty extensive list. I also asked that songs not be mixed but not all songs should be played from beginning till the end and some could have been blended.

I choose Scratch Weddings because I wanted something different for my wedding, not the typical wedding music. DJ Vida Ventura played at my wedding. The music started on the wrong foot. It first starting at the Ceremony when the "Wedding March" before the breaking of the glass (a big no-no). Then during the reception, the music was all over the place. It was a mess, when I entered the ballroom, I couldn't even hear the music, it was all muffled. I was upset when I couldn't hear the music peacefully to our first dance. I had to say something to correct the issue, which didn't go over well with the groom and wedding coordinator. DJ was MIA when plates were taken from table and everyone was ready to dance. Very amateurish, no "scratching" or mixing music at my wedding, my Ipod shuffle could have played just as well as her. By the last hour, I noticed all my songs from my list started playing, she tried to squeeze them in at the last minute. It was too late, because cake was served and people started to go home. Boring wedding- everything i didn't want to have. Thank you Scratch Weddings for the most boring wedding of the year. I regret not going with a typical Wedding DJ with the obnoxious MC and spending the extra money. My mistake for trusting Scratch Weddings.

I'm still waiting on a follow-up after addressing my concerns.

I gave Dj Rashaun a playlist of songs and ideas that we wanted. He was very flexible in making the songs work, however he barely added any other songs. He didn't play to the entire crowd, like the older generations of hit songs, and he didn't mix songs like his website's preview. Unfortunately, I could have done what he did with my ipod. According to my caterer, he was a 'mellow DJ' and didn't show any personality with mixing music. We were so excited about scratch weddings and in the end, it was a disappointment.

When I fisrt saw Scratch Weddings it was at the Great Bridal Expo. I was so excited abou tthe DJ (Cool Out) that performed, I knew I had to have him for my wedding. I called the next day and booked him. A bit pricy in my eyes ( $1400) but was able to take advantage of the show special for $1250. They allowed me to pay it off and that was nice. When I booked, I asked the woman if I could take my fiance to see Dj cool Out perform since he was not with me when I saw him, I was told yes. As months wore on, I was told he was booked and not performing publically except at the Revel Casino in AC (how about comping me the door charge so I can hear him work? NOPE! A happy customer is good advertising) Then I was told he would meet me for Coffee... I wanna hear him spin and not drink latte with him. A bit disappointed, I hung in there because he was sooo good at the show. Had my final call with him and his office staff the week before the wedding. We went over everything, first dance, special call-outs, name pronunciation etc.... felt better that day would be perfect. Once the reception started, I was not too happy. A number of my guest said he mispronounced our names at intro, he messed up Mother son dance (supposed to have other specific Moms invited up), forgot to wish my step son Happy Birhtday and even forgot a special dance for my cousin who just got engaged. In addition, the music kept stopping mid song and there was very little of the signature mixing that I fell in love with done at the reception. Needless to say, I AM DISAPPOINTED and would not in good conscience recommend him to anyone. Oh and he didnt bring any DJ lights... I assumed (my bad) that some type of lighting would be part of the deal, boy was I wrong. For $1250... I got a lot of negative comments from all my family and friends... and a huge regret about my choice of DJ. My only wedding blunder!

I was not thrilled with our Dj. I felt like we payed quite a bit, and while he played the music we wanted, I had to have my father constantly go and remind him to announce things like toasts, cake cutting, etc. Also, at one point, my husband asked him a question and he was chatting on facebook!

I'm surprised the amount of stars I'm giving here is as high as it is. I will say this, they are extremely responsive and always answer my emails immediately. The only reason why I didn't give them no stars professionalism and flexibility is that they did refund some of our money.

Onto my review of Scratch. We had a tight budget for our wedding and decided that our splurge item would be the DJ. Scratch's promise of Marquee DJ's that weren't overly corny seemed like the perfect match for us. All of our meetings with scratch went great and they even sent us to see the DJ spin. He was awesome when we saw him so we went into the wedding worrying about everything else and not the DJ. On top of that, all of the reviews of Scratch were stellar so we knew this was a great choice in vendor.

The ceremony was okay, a minor glitch in the queuing of songs but something so slight, it was only noticeable to us. The cocktail hour went great. Then the reception happened... names were pronounced wrong during the introductions, the first dance song couldn't be played, and the biggest embarrassment of all- to mask the lack of first dance songs- the dj opened the mic up for speeches. Something we specifically asked him not to do.

Only half of our playlist was played, some of the songs were very questionable, and some of our do not play list got played.

I don't know what happened. Sometimes people mess up and then get nervous and can't get back on track. That's my only guess here because like I said, we saw him spin. We know he's talented. Unfortunately our situation was embarrassing and a huge disappointment. During the ceremony, everyone saw him running around, scrambling for cables, and even trying to find our music on itunes. It was just all a mess and it was the item we were most looking forward to.

My experience with Scratch was awful for our wedding. My husband and I didn't want the cheesy wedding dj that everyone gets so we decided to book Scratch, but unfortunately they did not follow through. Our DJ NEVER contacted me prior to the wedding. We met only once months prior to the wedding and he did a brief demo and played the music we had asked for but on the wedding day, didn't play anything like that. I specifically said no pop music. So I really don't understand why he would decide to play an entire set of 80's pop. My husband and coordinator approached him SEVERAL times to tell him to change the music and still he didn't play what we discusses. NO ONE danced all night. It was terrible and I'm hoping that my guests had a good time since it didn't look like it. My friends all commented on how bewildered they were by the music playing since it was not my taste at all.

He also played the wrong song for our first dance..he played our entrance song instead. In the moment, I have no idea what played when we came out. We listened to half of that song standing on the dance floor until he finally figured out how to change it to the right song..basically ruining the moment while our guests sat confused.

We were also concerned prior about any annoucements that the DJ would need to make and were assured that he previously worked in radio and would be excellent, well unfortunately that's not true either. We couldn't even hear him! I was telling my guests what he was saying so they would know..not something I wanted to do on my wedding day! We had a special dessert area that most people didn't even know about unless I was able to tell them so that money was wasted as people didn't take home the desserts as excepted since they never even knew.

The only reason I give them any stars is that Kat, the contact I worked with was great. She was very responsive and I supposed I needed her there to help the DJ do his job. When my husband and I think back to our wedding, we think about how awful the music was. I did tell them after the wedding about our experience and they gave us $200 back..not enough for ruining the entire atmosphere and livelyhood of the reception. I would never recommend them to anyone.

This review is for DJ DECYBALS ONLY! Scratch has refunded us ~$400.
1. Ceremony - he didn't set up the mic properly for our readers. No one could hear them because it wasn't turned on.
2. Introductions - he pronounced our last name wrong! Of all of the things that he should have gotten right, this was the most important one. He also messed up the names of most of our wedding party. It was as if he was reading them for the first time. He could have at least practiced them a bit, or checked in with our wedding planner to make sure he was pronouncing them correctly.
3. First dance - The track that I have from the original album of the artist we gave him was not what he played. My husband and I were basically on the dance floor confused, hoping he was going to play the right song - he did, after about 10 seconds of uncomfortable awkwardness.
4. Blessing etc. - before he announced my grandfather to come and give a blessing, he asked everyone to take a seat. Awkward! We had a station setup and didn't have assigned seats, so our guests were kind of looking around not sure of what to do. I had to yell out to them - "there are no seats, just stay where you are!"
5. Reception - During our phone conversation we told Decybals that we liked music people could dance to - some top 40, and a good mix of older stuff. We told him the that the mean age of our guests was probably around 45-50. He didn't play anything from their era. Multiple times the dance floor cleared. Multiple times myself and my husband had to go up to him and ask him to play different music. The worst part of it all, was that he wouldn't take instruction from us. I gave him specific songs to play - classic wedding songs - he decided to play some horrible dance remix version. I verbatim told him - "play original music, play original songs, no remixes." But then he would just play another remix. He also played our last song about 3rd to last, and only played about 30 seconds of it.

What a disappointment. We were excited to have our DJ come and be a part of our big day. But as soon as we arrived (Half way through the cocktail hour) there was music playing, but it was not what we had chosen for cocktail hour, also no one could hear the music. Three days before the reception we received an email requesting my husband and i to buy the linens and bring the table for them. They were so unprepared they did not have any vinyls so basically what would have been played was the equivalent of an iPod being played. Thank God our friend (a DJ) came and allowed them to use his vinyls and actually took the mic because the DJ was silent. The only positive is that they showed up. Oh, and also a man with the DJ was taking photos of all of our friends and family, including my husband and i without permission. when approached the DJ said they were 'her photos'

Scratch Weddings responded with the following comments:

We always strive to over deliver on expectations and rarely hear negative feedback because we go to great lengths to ensure flawless execution (as can be seen from all the great reviews here on Wedding Wire.) Clearly we didn't succeed in meeting your expectations. Your wedding was particularly challanging as the guests were not responding to some of your more conservative music selections.

While there were some mistakes made on the part of the DJ and we recognize your DJ friend was trying to help the situation, its very disruptive to a DJ to have his or her performance commandeered. In spite of that, our DJ put forth every effort to get the dance floor going, keep guests entertained, and create a festive atmosphere according to the music direction you provided.

Regardless of all of the above, what matters to us is that you were displeased with the way things turned out, and we do take customer feedback very seriously. We will be sure to reach out to you personally to hear your feedback in more depth.
