True North DJ's helped make our wedding one of the best weddings people have ever been to. The music was perfect! We were able to request crowd favorites, sure to please a variety of guests. The responsiveness of the Dj's in emails leading up to the big day helped us organize a very hectic time in our life! We loved the professionalism, and the value for what we paid was certainly earned! :D The DJ on the day of the wedding was so awesome, and flexible, playing songs, and changing things, when they needed to be done. Our dance floor was never bare. People danced all night long. :D

True North DJ Services were excellent! Our DJ (Scott Rideout) was friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the music choices we wanted at our wedding. From the moment the dance began, people did not leave the dance floor (including the bride)! :)
We would recommend their services and would love to celebrate with Scott and the True North team again in the future.

Scott knew that we wanted our wedding to be a huge party for all our out of town guests and he totally delivered. From our very first meeting I knew that Scott "got" the vision for our night. He had lots of great suggestions along the way, was always prompt in replying to emails and above all, made the planning part fun, although I didn't have to do much of that as I knew I was in good hands. Scott also provided lighting for our event and it really made the rooms.

He had people on the dance floor as soon as the reception kicked off and it stayed that way until 2 a.m., just what we wanted. I would absolutely recommend Scott for your event.

I cannot say enough about Scott and his team. They were fantastic! Our goal was to have a good mix of music to have a good crowd on the dance floor and they delivered! Any requests were played quickly and if a song didn't seem too popular he would just blend into another seamlessly! Our DJ was Pat and he was nice, professional and fun! I highly recommend True North, our guests were saying it was the most fun wedding they have ever attended!

We have nothing but great things to say about Scott. From our very first interaction with him during the dinner he was amicable, professional, and seemed to be enjoying himself as much as many of the guests. He made it very difficult to leave the dance floor for fear of missing another tune and from the first song until Don't Stop Believing closed the night, our dance floor was overflowing with people. We could not have asked for better and felt like he was an integral part of our wedding despite having known him for all of 4 hours. Thank you to Scott and True North for an incredible night and an unforgettable experience.

First, I acknowledge I am somewhat biased because it was my wedding event. However, I have been to a lot of weddings, and True North DJ, particularly Scott, the owner, was the best wedding dance DJ I've ever experienced. It's like he know instinctively which songs the crowd was craving. Plus the uplighting he provided was one of our key decorative pieces, and it looked great. Unreal job all around. I would highly recommend.

We just got married in Halifax this summer and we absolutely loved the work of our DJ Scott, the owner of True North DJ! Our guests keep telling us how great the dance was and how much they loved the music! After our First Dance 90% of our guests were on the dance floor dancing and we danced until 1 am! Scott also did an amazing job with the lighting, the ceremony music and the dinner music. Thanks again Scott!

He had a really tough crowd from small kids to the elderly, so he ceratinly had to mix things up! He was very nice and accomodated all our requests.

We were so impressed that Scott got back to us so promptly when we came looking for a Dj just 6 weeks before our wedding.
At the event Scott was spirited, yet professional. Read the crowd well, listened to our wishes and played songs we'd requested and made a point of connecting with us at the end of the night. We'd reccomend him in a heartbeat...and will.

I believe we found True North DJ by looking through various Halifax DJs websites and trying to find someone who could give us a six hour long dance for a reasonable price. These guys charged as much for that much music as some companies did for only three hours. So, that was the hook for me.

We met with Scott about ten months before the wedding so he could get a feel for the sort of atmosphere we wanted. We were super vague, yet he was still able to figure us out. He told us he doesn't play the chicken dance, but my bride-to-be insisted and he reluctantly told us that if the bride wants the chicken dance, that would be the only way he'd play it.

Scott was fun to talk to and meet with, but also had a very professional manner. You are given a contract, bill of sale, and receipts. With many other services we dealt with on our wedding day (limo, reception hall, etc.), we weren't given these things, and it was a big relief to know that these guys know what they are doing on the business aspects and it gave you a secure feeling that, yes, these guys will show up on time and play for as long as they are supposed to.

On the wedding day, we actually had Jody come out to be our DJ for the evening. He came over to chat us up during dinner and try to get a feel for what to play as well. We had about a half an hour lull between the end of eating and before the dance started, and people were starting to get kind of bored, and Jody started playing some light music just to set-up the mood. This is something we hadn't originally asked for because we didn't think it was necessary, but it totally was. Jody read the mood of the crowd perfectly and I think it helped to keep a lot of people from filtering out.

The first dance started at seven, and we had asked previously that we wanted guests to join us half way through the song. We had chosen "Crazy Love" by Van Morrison, which is actually a short song. But, Jody, who must have set this up before hand, made the announcement for everyone to join us, then seamlessly looped the song to make it stretch out longer. The bride didn't notice at all! It was great!

We had booked the dance for six hours because we really just wanted a big party for the reception. Things were a little rough at the start, since it was still early, the reception hall was still a little bright from daylight, and to be honest, people probably hadn't drunk enough yet to not be too shy. But, Jody went through a big range of music, from country to top 40 to classic rock to get people on the floor. Eventually, some beautiful combination of the sun setting, flowing booze, and great music got people to dance.

Jody was very accommodating to requests. The bride would walk up to the table, shout a song title (or just mime the chicken dance), then he'd give a thumbs up and it would be on within three minutes. He played anything we requested, no matter how bizarre it may have seemed to him. If he's wondering, Rage Against the Machine is a very old and very dear inside joke to us!

I guess I could sum up the experience with something my cousin told me during the fifth hour of our reception: "I hate your DJ. He doesn't let me stop dancing."

It was awesome. I have no complaints, and you guys went above and beyond my expectations. Every guest we talked to - the kids, our aunts and uncles, and our friends - said it was one of the most fun wedding receptions they had every been to and True North was a huge part of it. Thank you very much!

Jody was very accommodating to requests. The bride would walk up to the table, shout a song title (or just mime the chicken dance), then he'd give a thumbs up and it would be on within three minutes. He played anything we requested, no matter how bizarre it may have seemed to him. If he's wondering, Rage Against the Machine is a very old and very dear inside joke to us!

I guess I could sum up the experience with something my cousin told me during the fifth hour of our reception: "I hate your DJ. He doesn't let me stop dancing."

It was awesome. I have no complaints, and you guys went above and beyond my expectations. Every guest we talked to - the kids, our aunts and uncles, and our friends - said it was one of the most fun wedding receptions they had every been to and True North was a huge part of it. Thank you very much! Read less

Scott was awesome. We had a great meeting with him a week before the wedding and knew from there we were in good hands.

We had a small wedding but the dance floor almost always had people on it. The numbers dwindled as the night wore on but the people who were into it were still enthusiastically shaking it (ourselves included) and that was all that mattered to us. He really understood what music the crowd was into and played a lot of that.

The only thing we weren't 100 per cent happy with was that Scott didn't play as much of the ethnic music we provided him with as we'd hoped. I'm guessing this might have been because he was trying to keep as many people on the dance floor as possible but we think there are some members of our families who would've appreciated hearing some tunes they were familiar with.

Overall, though, Scott was great and we'd hire him again!

Scott at True North DJ's provided the perfect atmosphere for our wedding day. He provided his equipment and music at both our ceremony and reception sites, and did an excellent job.

Scott met with us prior to our wedding day, and went through what both the bride and I wanted in terms of music for our day. He was able to work both of our different tastes of music throughout the day, and did so wonderfully!!

Scott's choice of music during the dance portion of our reception was perfect. He was able to read the crowd very well, and had people up dancing all evening. I couldn't say enough good things about his music choices! Everyone in attendance had a great time!!

I also appreciated the positioning and layout of his equipment. The speakers were positioned around the dance floor so that the music was loud and bass was beating in the dance floor area, but it was at a lower volume in other sections of the room so that guests not wanting to dance could easily converse with each other without having to leave the room.

Scott did a great job with announcements that we requested he make. He did so in a professional yet relaxed manner. He didn't try to be a comedian or very vocal DJ throughout the evening - just played music like we wanted.

From our interactions with Scott, you can tell that he truly enjoys being a DJ and entertaining his guests. He seemed to put his heart and soul into his music, and actually cared about what he was doing. DJ'ing isn't just something he is doing to make a couple extra bucks on the side - he seems to be truly passionate about his services.

Overall, we were VERY happy with True North DJ services. We couldn't have had a better DJ, and attribute a large portion of the success and enjoyment our guests had at our reception to Scott. We HIGHLY recommend True North DJ Service to anyone needing a DJ.

Well done and Thank You!!
Jason.

True North DJ Services provided DJ services for our wedding. We made the arrangements directly with the owner. He listened to what we wanted very well, and he carefully selected one of his DJs to run our event; matching style style with ours. The DJ was great. Very professional and punctual. He respected our do not play list, and took many requests from our guests throughout the evening. He kept the party rocking late into the night. It has now been 4 months since the wedding, and everyone is STILL talking about how much fun they had. Thank you True North!

True North DJ's were absolutely fabulous. The owner Scott Rideout was fantastic. From day one I knew he was the DJ service for me because he was friendly, organized, and explained everything fully. Throughout the whole wedding planning process he was helpful and quick to respond to any questions or requests I had for our wedding. Our DJ during the wedding, Matt, was also wonderful. He played a variety of music that kept the dance floor going until the lights came on. He also stayed right on schedule as per my requests and was extremely poliet and friendly. I HIGHLY recommend True North DJs to any bride planning a wedding. I must also note that I had my wedding in NS but was living in BC while planning and they were extremely helpful in making the process a stress free one. These guys are GREAT and I will definelty be recommending them to anyone who asks:) Thanks True North DJs for making our wedding a great one! Stephanie

Scott was very professional and always got back to us in a timely manner. he was even willing to make small changes at the last minute on our wedding day to help us out. The day of he was a blast! The music was just awesome. He completely played to the crowd and even mixed a special song for the bride and father. 5/5 isn't high enough. If you are in the Halifax area and need a DJ - you need Scott.

Scott did an amazing job as the DJ at our wedding!

Very responsive to emails and requests made prior to the wedding, we had no worries at all. He played to the crowd and even during our kissing game during the dinner, he was hilarious at adding in music to go along with it, which we hadn't planned. We received tons of compliments on the music and he kept everyone out on the dance floor for the majority of the night. He also played about half an hour past when the party should have stopped as everyone was still up dancing!
