I had a last minute surprise b-day to plan and Scott @ Coastline saved the day.  He was able to work within my budget and when it came time to play the music, he rocked the house.  Even the non-dancers were dancing! I highly recommend Scott for your event, big or small. More...

Dear Scott:It's rare to find myself in situations where I feel like I ran into the right person at the right time. So Annie & I consider ourselves very fortunate to have met you at a time when we could answer the question "what kind of wedding will it be? ", even if our answer was really "what we didn't want?"From there, came a very productive conversation that made us think long and hard about not only what kind of music we liked, but how we could get our very different styles to mesh (me: classical, jazz, r&b; her: top-40 2000's pop), how not to disturb our guests when eating, how to promote conversation & mingling during reception & cocktails, appropriate volume levels, transitioning between genres, and a host of other details big and small.Thank you for: - following exact instructions when we had them, and using your own good judgement and discretion when we didn't know what to do. - the big forms to fill out marking down, or allowing us to write down, which artists, songs and/or albums in various genres we wanted- giving us feedback about what kind of music to avoid, especially your experiences in getting older guests to dance- paying attention to facial & body language of our guests, to know when to keep and play music they liked, and when to move on from tracks that turned them off- starting with us at 3:30p instead of 4p, and giving us the option of continuing to 10p on the spot if neededI can't think of anyone else better suited to what we needed for our wedding, and you delivered! We'll be sure to recommend you to anyone who asks us! More...

Scott DJ'd our wedding in May and was awesome! He came recommended by 2 different sources, so I felt confident in our decision and he didn't disappoint.  He was professional, organized, and really kept the dance floor going (which was super important to me!).  He communicated with my husband and I to make sure we knew what was happening, but not once did I worry the whole night.  Every song, introduction, and communication was on point! I highly recommend Scott!! More...

Scott at Coastline Music truly exceeded our expectations and was an incredible MC/DJ at our Santa Monica wedding reception. We were referred to Scott by the coordinator at our wedding reception venue, who has worked with him on numerous occasions. I have to admit when I first spoke with Scott, I had some reservations about his gift of gab, as I did not want to have an MC who spoke throughout the reception and certainly did not want to have a disruptive experience. But to our delight, he was true to his words when he said in one of our pre-meetings, "I speak a lot now but I will not per your request on the day-of." And, I can confirm that he was brilliant on the day-of and is excellent at his craft of MC/DJ. Due to his extensive experience MC/DJ-ing many weddings and through our prep-meetings, he knew exactly how to keep the reception going smoothly. He provided the perfect guidance when needed -- i.e. toasts, cake-cutting, etc. -- and he delivered on his promise of not being a showman. Further, he is an excellent DJ! As part of his preparations, he had us fill out song lists and while these were his guideposts, he clearly had a great handle on the audience and how to present the best mix of songs to have everyone dancing throughout the evening. It was an incredibly joyful day in our lives and we appreciated how this was magnified with the celebratory music and dancing. We strongly recommend Scott and Coastline Music as an MC/DJ for wedding receptions! More...

Scott was an amazing DJ. He came highly recommended, but I still had my doubts, since it was all based on word of mouth and an in-person talk, but Scott knocked it out of the park. During the wedding, he was on top of things, always slickly coming up to us to ask if we wanted to change the timing of anything, and communicating with our other vendors perfectly. As for the music, we gave him pretty loose requirements, and he nailed it. After the first 20 mins, I had concerns that he could keep the energy of the party at such a high level, but he pulled it off - everyone commented on how amazing the DJ was, and I bet we could have danced for an extra hour or two. Well worth every penny. More...

Here is the short version of my review: I'm so glad we chose Scott as our DJ. Our wedding was a non stop dance party and many of my guests told me it was the best wedding they've ever been to, that the DJ was fantastic and the playlist was amazing. Scroll down for specific details! Scott is an amazing DJ. At our first interview, we could tell that Scott was going to be great. He asks alot of questions about h0w you want the night to go, what kind of music you want played, and what kind of vibe you want for your wedding night. He has lists of songs that you can YAY or NAY and encourages you to send a playlist of your favorite songs and a do not play list. He is very organized and has planning sheets for you to fill out with specific details for the ceremony, reception, etc. And this was all discovered at the first meeting! The week of and the day of the wedding Scott was incredible. For our grand entrance, he made sure every bridal party member was in their proper place at the right time, and throughout the night kept things on schedule from first dances to toasts to cake cutting. He also checked in with us periodically as we decided to do a few spontaneous things like a grandaughter/grandfather dance, but he was very flexible and willing to help. During the father of the bride speech, my dad mentioned Friends the TV show multiple times and when the speech was over, Scott played the friends theme song! It was an awesome touch.  Many of my guests told me it was the best wedding they had ever been to, the playlist was awesome and that the DJ was amazing. If you want a DJ who will cater to your needs, Scott is it! More...

We got married in January and Scott was amazing! He is organized and knows what he is doing. He made sure we were o time with our schedule and kept the party going on the dance floor. We also got up lights from him that made the venue look even better. I would highly recommend him! More...

I got married at The 1909 last month. I didn't think I needed a DJ, really didn't want one actually! I hate the typical wedding music that everyone uses, I wanted mine to be special and OURS and personalized, and I've been a guest at weddings where the DJ was super corny/annoying/whatever. But my mother-in-law convinced us to meet with Scott, and THANK GOD because he made our wedding what it was. I am really picky about music and wanted a certain "vibe", and so I sent Scott a ton of very specific playlists broken down by pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner and he worked them into the wedding day seamlessly, supplementing his own music/requests wherever it felt right. He had everyone crying during my walk down the aisle, and the dance party portion was perfect in every way. Literally everyone, all ages, did not leave the dance floor all night. Other reviews talk about how he reads the crowd and they nailed it because he totally did. Do not put your wedding day in the hands of an ipod, Scott is worth the investment (and a reasonable one, at that) if you want your wedding to truly be memorable. I had a great coordinator but he still checked in with me, ran my bouquet over to my dinner table, made sure I was enjoying myself, etc. He even went out to the venue on his own to check on what equipment they had and the set up and all that almost immediately after we hired him. During the day he was the perfect MC, like you didn't notice he was there because he wasn't trying to be funny or upstage anyone and ~host~, he just kept things moving along. He also offered my tons of advice on the timeline, how to keep people dancing, etc etc leading up to the day, because I had very little experience with what goes into a wedding (as I'm sure most brides do leading up to it). Do yourself a favor and meet with him, if all his five star reviews don't convince you then he will himself. Thank you for everything Scott. More...

Scott just did my son's wedding 2 days ago. I am surprised he doesn't have more reviews,  he only works on referrals.  I actually found him on Yelp. Thanks for the hook-up. He's amazing. His goal is the same as our goal- to have fun. And we did just that. He takes your in-put, puts a playlist together and doesn't let himself get bogged down by drunken wedding guests' requests. The few that he did get at our party,  he cleared with the bride and groom before deviating from the plan. (Most of them weren't honored). He is a consummate professional who keeps control of things. You need him! I have planned many events and it is always best to work with an experienced professional like Scott who has seen it all and knows what to do. Our guest were never bored at our party! He also gave us a great recommendation for a florist. We got quotes from 3 just to be sure, and his recommended florist was the best. More...

I just got married this past weekend in Pasadena, CA.  Scott was our DJ/MC and we could not have asked for anything more.  There are so many things to worry about when you are planning your big day, why worry about one more?  Scott will take care of everything and it will be just the way you want it.  Scott not only has great ideas, but if you allow him, he'll set up your entire music list with just a few suggestions.  For however long you hire him for, he'll have his finger on the pulse of your party.  He knows when to pick it up and slow it down.  He keeps you to the timeline, just to make sure that you don't "accidentally" skip something on your big day.  Scott has been doing this for years and seems to have mastered the high-end wedding venue/party.  At the end of my night, there was absolutely no question about his ability. His prices are very reasonable and he is easily accessible.   My suggestion, worry about everything else.  But when it comes to an MC/DJ, put your trust into Scott and Coastline Music, he will not let you down.

Both our wedding venue and coordinator recommended Coastline Music as our DJ and reception MC. We were admittedly awful at time management and put our DJ decision to about a month before our wedding day. Scott, who is both the owner and the primary DJ of Coastline, was so professional, he kept calm and told us he was actually available that day and wanted to discuss with us our expectations, and also gauge our personalities to see if we were a good fit. After talking with him over the phone and then in person, we saw how important chemistry and trust were when hiring a DJ, and how the wrong DJ could completely declass or derail an event. We appreciated that Scott has been a DJ for decades, as a living and not as a hobby or a side gig. This mattered because he was instantly reachable, and we also knew that on our wedding day, we would be getting Scott himself and that everything we discussed would be personally carried out by him.  He showed us endless stacks of recommendations and glowing reviews from other couples who had hired him for their weddings. It was reassuring but even without all of that, we were already impressed by his level of knowledge, experience and professionalism. We were assured that he was going to give us a classy presence and represent us well. We had been to other weddings where the DJ did not listen to the couple or lacked awareness (e.g. turned a wedding raunchy in the presence of children and older relatives). Scott was the opposite of that and said, if we wanted a do not play list, or had specific instructions for the evening's events or wanted to stick to specific song genres, then we could do that; He would not misrepresent us. We ultimately gave him a rough sketch of the music we liked and a few special requests, but trusted him to put together the playlist he thought was best. Our wedding day came and he did an amazing job engaging our guests, catching us up on a schedule that was running behind due to uncontrollable circumstances, staying organized with the toasts, and even staying alert to playing a particular song that cued select guests that the USC Trojan Marching Band had arrived, and it was time for said guests to nonchalantly join the band for a surprise entrance and performance (we're band alumni and with Scott's help had planned to join the gig and smoothly include other alumni guests, too). The seemingly flawless flow of events was a testament to Scott's experience, and we appreciated how well he stayed coordinated with our wedding coordinator who was running the overall show. Scott was so tuned into what our guests wanted that we were shocked at how full the dance floor stayed, occupied even by guests who were normally wallflowers. We are still receiving praise for our DJ/MC hire from guests of all ages, from fresh out of college to past retirement. We really lucked out on Scott being available so close to our wedding date, because wow! No one else would have come close, and we are so grateful to Coastline Music being a major contributor to our perfect and beautiful wedding day. More...

Look no further for your wedding/party DJ, Scott will take care of everything!  I recommend him in the highest regard possible!  I'm so happy that we choose Scott to be our DJ.  My husband and I had complete confidence in him right from the start, because he is very well spoken, he listens, he is professional, and passionate about music and people and he is just plain AWESOME at what he does.  I had to make a few last minute changes in my timeline, and he helped me sort it out even though I was slightly stressed!! It was so nice to have his help so I didn't feel like it was ALL on me. He ALWAYS called/emailed back within an hour.  He provided such excellent customer service!  Scott made sure everybody involved in my wedding knew what was going on, which really kept things running smoothly, and on time. Everybody loved him, we received so many compliments, I don't think there was one person sitting down at my wedding, because Scott knows how to get the party started, and he keeps it going!~ If you want a fun and memorable wedding, with a hard working, spot on DJ you need to go with Scott Norris from Coastline music.

Finding a DJ for our wedding was difficult. How do you really know? You can't really test them out like you can at a wedding cake tasting! Our wedding venue had Scott as one of their preferred vendors. I met with him and he seemed perfect. I had a good feeling about him. He was extremely helpful and patient with us, right up until the last minute. As we were about to go into the reception, Scott was there to guide us through the process. He was amazing. The best part was that he didn't do anything that we didn't want him to do. He kept the party moving. He would take me aside from time to time to again guide me. I would give him more stars if I could! More...

I cannot recommend Scott enough!I got to "review" his work as he was the DJ at my best friend's wedding in 2007 (see Doris G's review).  I remember being at her wedding and thinking, "when I get married I am SO hiring this DJ!"  The best thing he does is what he calls the "Love Story" - he has the bride and groom write down answers to questions about how they met and fell in love without showing each other and then combines them into one romantic story which you get to hear at your reception for the first time with all your family and friends.  It's such a great way to let everyone at your wedding get a glimpse into how you met and fell in love.  I thought that was a such a personal touch that goes above and beyond all other weddings I had been to.So fast forward to 2013 when it was my turn to get married and I told my fiance, I got the DJ, that one's in the bag. We only had to meet with him in person once which was great for me since I was working full time while planning my wedding.  Although we did have several 1+ hour long phone conversations afterwards to go over song selections, the agenda for the reception and the overall feel of how I wanted my reception to go.  I couldn't have been more pleased!  Not only did he deliver an amazing Love Story (see excerpt of mine below), he kept my guests happy and dancing the whole night (and did not play anything on the do not play list, there's no bullying this guy if you tell him to stay firm on your list).Definitely would not hesitate to hire him again!Excerpt from my love story: "Mike says 'For our first date. We agreed to meet at The Rack, my favorite bar, which was located directly across the street from my apartment.  I was so nervous that I spent the entire day cleaning, which was a rarity for me.  Since we were meeting so late in the evening,  I got to the bar about an hour early in order to have a drink alone, collect my thoughts and hopefully relax a bit before Carly arrived.  Mike says 'Just as I was starting to calm down and breathe like a normal human being, she walked into the bar.  I was sitting in the back so I saw her stride the entire length of the bar looking for me.  From the moment I saw her I knew...she was WAY out of my league.  I was actually disappointed a bit.  She was so beautiful and she looked so sophisticated that my immediate reaction was that I didn't stand a chance and this was going to be a very short evening.Carly says 'I walked down the entire length of the bar and back but still didn't see Mike.  When I turned back around to find him, there he was, wearing a pink button-up shirt, grey vest and an awesome hat.  I was like, this guy has some style!  Mike says 'We ordered drinks and took them back to the table where I had been sitting.  We started making small talk, just basic get to know you stuff and I was a nervous wreck.  For the first 20 minutes I was second guessing every sentence that came out of my mouth, until it happened.  The moment that will forever live etched in my mind like a stone sculpture.  I made her laugh for the very first time and she reached over and touched my arm.  I was immediately relaxed and from that moment on I have felt more comfortable around Carly than anyone I know.Carly says 'the bar closed at midnight, but we didn't want our night to end since we had only just met 2 hours earlier, so we walked to the nearest 7-Elevan to get our own beer (she writes - we're classy!).  We stayed up and talked that night until almost 4am!"

My husband and I hired Scott for our recent wedding.  I truly cannot say enough about him!  He kept in communication, gave knowing and professional advice, provided A+ service during the reception, was polite, understanding, funny and on the ball.  He had suggestions for every tricky situation we encountered.  Many people complimented us on the music, which we picked, and Scott helped us turn our unique music selections into a party that everyone loved!  In my opinion, he is also very reasonably priced.  I would recommend him in a second!

I hired Scott to do the ceremony and reception for our wedding. He was very professional and gave us a lot of pointers for the things that we never thought about.  For example, how to address Groom's father's wife, what type of music for reception..etc.  He was not cheap but you really do get what you pay for.  I'm glad I hired him for the wedding.  Will hire him for the next wedding =) More...

Scott from Coastline Music DJ'd my wedding in August. He was absolutely amazing at keeping the flow of the party going and was the perfect MC. He kept the party going and was really able to read the room well. Our friends and family just wanted to dance. I also chose to do lighting at the last week leading up to the wedding and was really glad my mom and I decided to add this. It was as Scott told us it would be; you wouldn't notice it if it wasn't there but you notice when it is there. It really gave the room and the dance floor a good feeling. The night could not have been more amazing and Scott was a huge part of making it amazing. He is also very reasonably priced in comparison with other DJs and in fact I found his prices pretty competitive compared to other people I know who had DJs I was not impressed with at their weddings. Scott will listen to you. That is the main key. You will not regret choosing him, he is simply the best. More...

Scott was the DJ/MC for my daughters wedding 7/28/13. He did the music for the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the reception. Everything was flawless. Scott takes great pride in his work, making sure he understands exactly what the bride and groom are looking for. He kept the party going, kept people out on the dance floor, tailored the music to the crowd, etc. He was on time and dressed professionally. I would not hesitate to use Scott again for any event and to recommend him highly.He also did a "love story" which people are still commenting on. Everyone says our DJ was the best! I would give 10 stars if I could! More...

Scott is seriously amazing-he was the DJ for our wedding a couple of weeks ago, and did a phenomenal job. He took the time beforehand to make sure he understood what our vision was for our wedding and executed everything extremely well. He was punctual, played a great set, and kept the crowd engaged throughout the night. We've had so many people from our wedding ask for his information because of the wonderful job he did. If you want a great DJ for your wedding, you won't go wrong with Scott! More...

Scott was the DJ for my wedding back in October 2007 at Duke's in Malibu.  He was very professional with the whole process and did a great job running the wedding reception.  He was on time, dressed well, played great music, had my entire family out there dancing on the the dance floor, and followed all of the guidelines we set up before the wedding.  We had so many compliments about our DJ.  I would 100% recommend him.There are a few things that I vividly remember from that day over 5 years ago:The wedding story was a great touch!  Had friends and family in tears (in a good way!).I forgot my garter on the day of my wedding and he saved the day - as he brought one just in case (makes me wonder what else he keeps in the "just in case" box).  We didn't have to skip the garter toss - it worked out great!He was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day.  I can't say he was the best because of course, that honor rests with my wonderful husband :)I'd hire Scott again in a heartbeat!

Scott Norris of Coastline Music was the DJ for our wedding last month at the Marina del Rey Marriott. (It was the top floor ballroom with the adjacent patio. )Scott is fantastic. I can't say enough good things about how great he made our wedding reception. Of all the vendors we worked with, Scott cared the most about our event. He is organized, thorough, enthusiastic and talented. I'm a bit of a worrywart and Scott completely put my mind at ease. He genuinely cared, and had everything completely handled. He was instrumental in creating the timeline for our event (gently guiding us, and offering suggestions to make sure we got exactly what we wanted). You can tell how experienced he is after talking to him for 5 minutes. Our dance floor was packed the whole time and all our guests commented on how great the DJ was and how much they enjoyed the music. Everyone I saw the next morning had sore feet -- success! There was one moment where it was starting to get late and people began to come over to say their goodbyes and my heart sank -- I wasn't ready for the night to be over, and I certainly didn't want anyone under the age of 65 going home early. But then something magical happened and the next thing I know, we're all on the dance floor singing to our favorite songs at the top of our lungs. Everyone partied to the end. All thanks to Scott. I didn't hear one song all night that I didn't like.Scott was also very experienced with our venue and was able to easily set up outside for the cocktail hour and also inside for the reception without any lag time or disruptions or problems of any kind. His rates were reasonable and competitive. Hire Scott and you'll have a great event. More...

Coastline music was the right choice for our wedding. Scott is an incredible DJ and MC. He helped to keep the event run smoothly and incorporated music that fit every stage of the event. Every age group was out on the dance floor and we didn't want the party to end. In fact, we kept it going longer than we had  originally planned. Scott respected our music choices and made the day a smashing success. We would definitely use Scott again for other celebrations.i More...

If I had to plan my wedding again, I would 110% hire Scott. I was beyond pleased with his service. I first heard Scott DJ at a friends wedding and remember dancing the whole night because he was playing the best music. So when I got engaged, I knew I had to have Scott.  He was in constant communication with us regarding deadlines, playlists, meetings, etc. He has a fabulous personality that will get along with anyone.  We had a last minute request for lighting which Scott set up that made our reception room look like a million dollar wedding...and the lighting so is reasonable!! I highly highly recommend Scott to anyone who is planning a wedding!! More...

Scott Norris (Coastline Music) was the DJ for our wedding this past fallon a Sunday afternoon at The Athenaeum in Pasadena. Scott was amazing!He was incredibly professional, responsible, thoughtful, and receptiveto our suggestions. He also helped us plan out our entire reception, andkept things flowing all afternoon (I mean, come on, he must be prettygreat to get people dancing on a Sunday afternoon!). He even cooked up ascheme to get everyone out on the dance floor for a group photo at onepoint, and then kept them out there for more dancing. I wholeheartedlyrecommend Scott!!! You will not be disappointed! More...

Ever since my best friends Bat Mitzvah I've been terrified and doubtful of DJ's. So for my wedding, I wanted LIVE MUSIC! Later I learned that live music would have been a terrible idea because there are breaks in the music and there is hardly any variety. So I decided to search for a DJ. Luckily our wedding venue (the Athenaeum) had a list of recommended vendors. This meant that the vendors have a good working relationship with the wedding venue, a definite plus! We read some reviews of Coastline music and decided to meet the main DJ, Scott Norris. Not to be confused with Chuck Norris, who is also awesome.We met Scott at his home/office in Los Angeles. His office was rather small, yet very orderly.  After the Bat Mitzvah I naturally assumed all DJ's were embarrassing and weird. Scott proved me wrong. He was clean cut and totally NOT weird. After listening to him speak for less than five minutes I could tell he loves his job, he is organized, and I wanted him to be our DJ. I didn't want to look at any other DJ's because it'd be a total waste of time. Scott asked for quite a bit of information to be provided before the wedding, which is a good thing. He used all of that information to help run "the show". A wedding is basically a huge, orchestrated, well rehearsed production. Scott was THE front and center director, while our amazing wedding coordinator Samantha was the director behind the scenes. During the wedding planning stages I could call him with any questions regarding music selection and music timing and he would answer me honestly. I always felt like he had time for me when I called. A few points: he has a "do not play" list, which is basically a list of songs you NEVER want to have played (i.e. Justin Bieber songs) and he really will not play them, even if someone else like a wedding guest asks him to! He also has a "please do play" list, which is a list of songs or musicians you do like. He will play those songs, learn what type of music you like, then play songs that he knows you will like. Kind of like Pandora radio. To top it off, at the wedding he actually observes the crowd! If the crowd is really liking a certain artist or style of music, he will play more of that, just to get the crowd going even more. On the other hand if he notices that the crowd is not responding well to certain music, he will not play that type of music anymore. See? Just like pandora only way better! Scott's pricing is VERY reasonable as well. If possible, I would recommend Scott himself. I am sure his worker bees are great as well, but Scott just went above and beyond my expectations of a DJ. Oh! he also dresses according to what you request. So if you ask him to come in a formal tuxedo, he will show up in a formal tuxedo, he will NOT show up with clown shoes and a hundred glow sticks hanging from his suit! I am an extremely picky person when it comes to food, goods, and services and I recommend Scott above all other DJ's! More...

Scott Norris with Coastline Music is top notch.  He kept our dance floor packed all night.  He is extremely personable,and all of our guests commented on how great he was.    Scott is very professional and thorough.  He made himself available to us throughout the planning process.  When it came to the big day, his presence at the wedding helped things run smoothly.  Everyone had so much fun we kept extending the evening.    You should have no reservations hiring Scott.  He is a class act and helped make my wedding perfect.

Scott is the best DJ EVER!!!!! ESPECIALLY FOR WEDDINGS. Let me tell you, every single guest at our wedding was dancing. Not only that they danced for HOURS! !!!! I had the best time at our wedding. I have never seen so many guests so happy and dancing their asses off at a wedding! Scott knows how to work the guests through music. He knows what he is doing and is a great person and a great Dj to work with. I highly recommend him! More...

LOVE LOVE LOVE Scott!! He is the best DJ around!!! My husband and I first met Scott at another wedding back in 2004. We were dating at the time, but Branden told me that if we ever got married, he would hire this DJ - Which we did, we got married in June of 2011. We started planning our wedding in June of 2010 and we tracked him down! Luckily he was still available on our date. (if he wasn't available, Branden told me we would have to change it to a day that he was). After meeting with Scott, we drove home to discuss our options and the possibility of meeting with other DJ's. Branden put his foot down and cut the check to book him that same day.Although I thought he was out of our budget (we are a young couple and don't have a lot of money) he was worth every penny. He added uplighting to our event which made the place look incredible. Everyone was blown away!  Never was there a dull moment at out reception!He worked with every single vendor and made everything flow smoothly! He transitioned music perfectly to fit the energy of the crowd. We recommended him to some friends of our who got married a month after we did. And even as their guests, we had the most incredible time.We loved every single one of our vendors, but if there was only one I had to recommend, it would be Scott of Coastline Music! More...

My husband and I recently got married at Duke's in Malibu and were lucky enough to have Scott Norris as our DJ. After meeting with Scott, my husband and I knew that we had found the perfect DJ. It was really important to us to find "the right" DJ as basically the DJ controls the pulse of the reception. My husband and I...and our friends & family are all about dancing, drinking & having a great time & with the help of Scott's music selection, our reception was off the hook!Scott was very patient to answer any and all questions we had and even was flexible with a last minute addition of a personalized music video that we wanted to walk into for our grand entrance. We also had a choreographed first dance & Scott took care of the song so it was a perfect fit to our routine! As the evening progressed, our friends and family wanted to keep the party going for an extra hour, so Scott was of course extremely flexible and said not a problem to extend the music for another hour.It has been 4 months since we've been married and I would recommend Scott Norris to anybody looking to have an amazing reception!!

For our wedding, we had a harpist for the ceremony & cocktail hour and DJ Scott Norris for the reception.  We expected a harder time picking the right DJ but it went very smooth thanx to our trusty vendor recommendation list from The Athenaeum! DJ Scott came VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by The Athenaeum.  Since you have to have a really good rapport with your DJ since he will be the one controlling every min of your reception, we interviewed several.  At the end, we decided on DJ Scott since he is very punctual and organized.  We needed someone who can handle anything and everything since we opted to not have a wedding coordinator.  He was so very organized all through the wedding planning process that we couldn't keep up! haha.  He kept us on the track by nicely but firmly reminding us of the deadlines.  On the wedding day, he was on time, and knew exactly what had to be done.  Oh, if you decide to go with DJ Scott, definitely do the "Love Story."  You and your fiancée will write your own version of how you met, when you realized that he or she is the one, etc etc etc.  Then DJ Scott will compress the two stories into one in a very interesting, entertaining way.  It certainly was the most fun part of our reception and our guests loved it.* Service = You can't expect more than what DJ Scott offers* Price = reasonable.  We paid $1,195 for 4 hours. Not the cheapest but very much worth it* Work = very professional* Personality = at your very first meeting, you might feel like he is a little pushy BUT it's because he wants to let you know his reliable and professional personality.

Q&A

At a party, people like to dance to songs they have heard before. Familiar music is what gets people dancing. We have a wide range of music from every major musical genre. We play only the "clean/radio" versions of the songs. No four letter words or foul language

People say to me, "You've got a cool career, what kind of music do you play?" My answer is always, "whatever will get people to dance". New music, old music, international music. Whatever the party needs!

Fun. I love seeing my clients and their families & friends having fun on the dance floor. And then, seeing the look of happiness on their faces at the end of the night knowing that the party turned out the way they wanted.

Most people have never hired a DJ before. I strive to make the process easy, enjoyable and fun. I'm a full time, professional DJ with over 20 years of experience. I want every one of my clients to have the party THEY want to have. I work closely with my clients to discover the music they want and the music they DON"T want. I just want the party to be fun!
