Recent Client Review - "Steve was amazing. I will refer him to all of my brides and grooms at Sofitel Philadelphia! We really didn't pick out any songs ahead of time and he played all of our favorites. We've had wonderful feedback from all of our guests about how amazing Steve was. I was afraid not many people would dance between both of our families and friends and he had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. - Melody Duffy, Director of Catering, Sofitel Philadelphia" - Melody & Matt - Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts - Click here to read more!

Music:
Compiling a list of music to play at your event can be a daunting task. The most important thing to remember is YOU are in charge of the music played at your event.

Steve has amassed an extensive music repertoire, encompassing all the most popular music from 1940 to the Top 40. Steve also possesses an extensive library of World Music including Indian, Latin, Asian, Greek, and more!

Steve's flexibility and experience will easily accommodate people young and old. His ability to read your crowd produces an environment for lively dance floor fun.

By combining your needs and wants with his knowledge and talent, you are guaranteed to entertain your event well beyond your already high expectations.

Audio Equipment:
Heather and Peter at Winterthur MuseumSteve's sound equipment has been assembled to provide your event with the appropriately amplified, highest-quality of sound, while giving your guests the ability to carry on conversation at their tables.

Steve's main sound system consists of two Bose L1 Model II speakers and four Bose B1 subs designed to deliver the clearest of sound with 180 degrees of smooth, uniform sound dispersion. For larger crowds, he can add his Yorkville NX750-P self-powered speakers, each mounted on two Yorkville NX-200S self-powered subwoofers. For cocktail hour, Steve can offer you the low-profile look of the Bose L1 Compact System or two Yorkville NX-55P self-powered speakers and/or his amplifier-driven Electro Voice Eliminator-i speakers can cover the room nicely with a comfortable level of sound.

Is your ballroom particularly large, with high vaulted ceilings and marble floors? To defeat echo and loud volumes, Steve can accommodate your needs with four-corner wireless surround sound, allowing for complete sound coverage at a comfortable and appropriate level without unsightly cables for people to trip over.

Customer Assurance:
Because of my experience and education in music and communications, I am very particular about the music repertoire. I am well known for checking with my clients throughout the evening to make sure that the music selection is on track.

Steve's Preferred Music:
"People often ask what I personally like to listen to when I'm not working. I used to think that was a bit of an odd question, but now I feel that knowing a little more about your DJ as an individual can help contribute to your confidence that he or she is the best entertainer for your wedding reception." - Steve

Here's a list of some artists for you to check out. At the very least, you'll probably hear a song you'll want to add to your wedding's cocktail hour. Happy listening.

Morrissey, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Nine Inch Nails, Franz Ferdinand, Sigur Ros, The Postal Service, Phoenix, Modest Mouse, Beck, Gorillaz, Deadmau5, Arcade Fire, Brandon Flowers, Bloc Party and more...
