DJ Scuba Steve is fun, professional, and amazing. Steve edited songs and created mashups for the traditional dances, transitioned vibes from dinner to dancing perfectly, and felt like a part of the family at the end of the night. Steve played all the songs we wanted and chose so wisely. He is a joy to work with! Thanks Steve! More...

Merchant Productions kept our wedding jumping. My wife and I had no idea how to create a wedding playlist as most of our music is not dancing music. DJ Kev sat down with us and hear what we thought everyone would. When the day came, the dance floor was never empty! Both our families and even the caterer had to tell us what a great reception we had. They definitely know how to keep a party moving. More...

I am so thankful we were recommended DJ Scuba Steve for our wedding! He did an absolutely fantastic job from start to finish. I was planning my wedding from out of town, so communication was very important to me. Steve is super responsive via email, clear with his instructions and offerings, and is open to any suggestions. He handled our ceremony sound, cocktail hour, reception (HUGE dance party!!) and brought along his photo booth that was SO POPULAR! I love seeing everyone's photobooth pictures posted on social media!! I can't say enough great things about Steve. He is well worth the investment. More...

DJ Kevin did a fantastic job at my wedding. Very impressed with his communication and professionalism. Most importantly, he listened to exactly what we wanted and made our preferences as bride and groom the top priority. Would gladly recommend him again!

DJ ScubaSteve was a God-send. We didn’t have a wedding coordinator, so he volunteered to partner with our vendors to make sure everyone knew when to walk, where to stand, etc. He helped us decide on songs since we weren’t decisive in that area, but made sure to ask if there were any songs or styles we didn’t like. He brought energy to the reception that got both sides of non-dancing families to get up and move. He even made sure to appoint people to get us a plate of food to be sure we had a chance to eat as most couples never get a chance to with the rush of the wedding day. Stop looking for a DJ and contact Merchant Productions now! More...

My husband and I are over-the-moon about our experience with DJ Steve. We were so stressed about everything and after the first time meeting with him, it was like a huge weight was taken off our shoulders. Not only was the music perfect and fun but it was like having a wedding coordinator as well. His knowledge and professionalism blew me away. He helped us in so many unexpected ways. I cannot imagine how things may have gone if we didn’t have his guidance. He went above and beyond to ensure we and our guests had a perfect and amazing day. I cannot thank him enough and therefore want to sing his praises from the rooftop. The search is over. Hire Steve. He is the absolute best-of-the-best DJ I have experienced in the entirety of my existence and I’ve been to a whole lot of weddings. More...

DJ Kev was a wonderful addition to our daughter's wedding. He met and talked with bride and groom several times about their hopes for the night, not only the songs they wanted, but the experience. He is very nice and knows how to do his job well. I would definitely recommend him! More...

Steve was the DJ at our wedding. He was so easy to work with and he ran the show exactly like I asked him too. He selects great music and matches songs based on what you request. Everyone loved him and the photo booth at the wedding. At first I was hesitant about the photo booth, but it was a hit! I am so glad he consulted with me and convinced me to get the photo booth. Everything worked perfect for our special day! More...

We needed a DJ for my daughter's wedding. DJScubaSteve came highly recommended from friends and he did not disappoint. He was extremely professional and super easy to work with. He made helpful recommendations and delivered exactly what we requested. He met with us several times and accommodated our requests. He has a super energetic personality perfect for a DJ. He was able to easily engage our guests and get them to participate in wedding activities.
Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend DJScubaSteve's services.

My wife and I would gladly recommend Steve and Merchant Productions to anyone! The whole experience was made super easy (the way we hoped it would be). From the beginning Steve was very accommodating. He had dinner with us on separate occasions and listened to our every request. He also helped us an extraordinary amount with our planning/order of our ceremony and reception. 10 out of 10 would book him again! More...

Steve IS THE BEST! Do not hesitate to book him before someone else does! We had the best day of our lives and we definitely have Steve to thank for that. He definitely knows how to throw a party. He interacts with guests and you can tell he just loves what he does! We honestly can't thank him enough! Everyone at our wedding kept telling us how awesome he was. And I hired him after only messaging through wedding wire. He is super responsive and very reasonably priced. Hiring him was the best decision we could have made. You're missed out if you don't! Thank you again Steve! More...

DJ ScubaSteve was one of the best choices we could have made for our wedding day. I seriously cannot say enough good things about him. He is so attentive, creative, and really listens to what you want your vision to be. Because of him and the vibe he creates, our dance floor was the place to be for our reception! He had great transitions between songs and kept the same great energy throughout the entire night. Plus he is super affordable! Highly recommend. Thanks again, Steve! More...

Logan and Steve were wonderful to work with. My husband and I had an extensive "do not play list" and they stuck to it. Even when pushy former sorority girls tried to make some of it happen. Logan was very professional and kept his composure. Additionally, the sound for at the chapel was great and they were on time. Our additional lighting and draping at the venue were perfect as well. Thank you to both Logan and Steve for making our big day even better. More...

He was always open and receptive to our ideas as well as constantly checking in with us to make sure everything was perfect. Kevin is a great professional as well as a great guy. I would highly recommend him to anyone. More...

I wish that I could tell you exactly how valuable the Merchant Productions crew was to our day but it is impossible. The entertainment and DJ services were top notch. My friends and family all still comment on how much fun they had at our Wedding! But the services that were so valuable to me were the day of coordinating services. I had a very specific vision for decorations and the wedding. Steve and his team brought that to life for me. They met us for planning sessions and executed everything to perfection from coordinating vendors to making sure the plates and place cards were put in just the right positions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

I absolutely could not have chosen a better DJ for my wedding. I am a professional photographer and photograph weddings all the time & I have never seen a DJ go above and beyond to make the day so stress free and fun. Most of the time, I never see DJ’s leave their table but Steve was out on the dance floor with a microphone getting the party started! He got everyone out on the floor for the bouquet toss & garter toss and played every song I asked him too and made dancing so fun. I honestly couldn’t say enough good things! If you need a DJ for any event, don’t hesitate to book!! More...

Scuba Steve hands down made our wedding the most fun event ever. We only picked songs for the “special moments” everything else I left up to him, best decision ever! He killed it!! He’s so fun! He dances with the crowd, gets everyone pumped up, and his personality is awesome. The dance floor lighting was amazing( we did the special monogram light too). If you don’t pick Scuba Steve, I have to say you’re making a big mistake! More...

DJ Scuba Steve and the team at Merchant Productions made our wedding everything we dreamed of and more. Our wedding was on New Years Eve so we wanted to make sure we had a great dance party. Steve more than delivered. I truly believed he helped make the party to be as great as it was. I can't say enough good things about it. The music was fantastic, the lighting was beautiful, and his willingness to jump in and help with anything and everything was above and beyond what any normal DJ would do. We loved having Merchant Productions as a part of our big day. Choosing them was one of the best decisions we made as far as vendors go. We more than highly recommend them for your DJ needs! More...

Scubasteve was THE BEST! He was so easy to work with and lots of fun! We slacked on music selections and I sent my list to him 2 days before the wedding AND made last minute song selections the day of and he put them together flawlessly. We had him do a custom monogram that was beautiful and do uplighting that was perfect. He also took lots of pictures himself which was an awesome bonus! Well worth every penny. You won’t be disappointed!!! More...

Djk was great! He did more than just Dj he was able to play our wedding video through the projector and everything. He kept everyone dancing all night! Not only was he considerate with edited versions of songs, but he had it bumpin' at the same time. I would use him for any event. Oh and he took requests on request! Too much fun. More...

Steve was great! Extremely accommodating with our music selection, ceremony musicians, pastor, speakers, etc. and kept the celebration going all night! He really did an excellent job, and you can tell he love what he does. That's important on the one of the biggest days of your life! He played the clean versions of music, and really had fun with our family and friends. He did embarrass my husband during the garter toss, but we all thought it was funny. LOL. Anyway, we loved Steve, and you will too! Definitely hire him for your wedding! More...

Steve was truly the best! I am glad I made the right choice! During the wedding planning, I was worried about the music because I didn't know what people would like best. To decrease my stress, Steve took care of all that (which is exactly what a DJ should do) and he had the party going! Seriously, any money you spend is totally worth it. More...

Scubasteve did my wedding 7 years ago. He did the music and video. He was so amazing and even directed us when and where to go during the ceremony. Do you know what else he did?!?! He brought me into a studio and helped me sing and record a song for us to dance to our first dance as husband and wife?!? He is amazing and that why he is also doing my nieces wedding in August!

This was hands down our wisest investment as far as our event was concerned. Steve (DJ Scuba Steve) was WONDERFUL. Professional, very personable, a great listener. He MADE our reception a BLAST! Not a single person stayed seated all night. He also took a TON of professional looking pictures of us that we cherish. I also had my ceremony and reception at two different places and he was set up early and prepared for both and then offered to help set up in other ways. Needless to say, he helped make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. My (second) most proud decision for our wedding. ;) More...

Steve and Logan were phenomenal to work with. We had a special request that required a little extra tech support on their end, and it went flawlessly.

We booked our wedding through Merchant Productions and couldn't be happier! I had the pleasure of working with Steve in the early days. They provided us with a multitude of different packets that we used throughout our wedding planning. We met with Steve for lunch one day to hang out and talk about what we wanted and answer any questions we had. The day of the rehersal we met Kevin who would be our DJ for that day and he was awesome! He went over every possible detail we would have for music and had some great suggestions for some music areas we weren't to sure of. My mother loved him and wanted to bring him back home. The day of the wedding was amazing! He got all the people out on the dance floor and was calling out people to get out on the floor. It was really amazing and I did not want the night to end! I would highly recommend this group to use! They were worth every penny and then some! More...

20 May 2017

I was recommended Merchant Productions by my photographer & I am so happy he did! Kevin (DjK) was my DJ for my wedding night & he did an awesome job. I met with Steve before I booked Merchant Productions to go over the services offered, he was extremely nice & informative. When I met Kevin prior to the wedding I told him that I was not sure if people would dance & he told me he could accommodate to the crowd. He did exactly that! Kevin did an outstanding job, he even got out on the dance floor to encourage more people to come out & dance. A ton of people danced & everyone had a great time, I dont think my wedding would had been as much fun without such an amazing Dj service. More...

DJ Steve was recommended to me by a co-worker and I want to pass along the favor. I highly recommend his services! He met with us a few different times to answer any questions we had. He also came to our rehearsal to help with advice and experience. If you need a DJ or MC for any event, I highly recommend DJ Scuba Steve. More...

Steve went above and beyond my expectations and I would definitely recommend him for your event. My wedding guests are still talking about how great the music was. I didn't go the typical route with music (I asked for a lot of 80s music and no rap), and it was even better than I expected. I wish we could relive the day all over again just for the music and dancing. It was beyond perfect. He even took a lot of pictures... I had no idea he was doing that so it was a nice surprise to see the photos. You'd be missing out if you don't choose Steve for your next event! More...

My now husband and I met Scubasteve through a great friend of ours and it felt like we had know him for years. He was a great fit for us. Personable and professional. He answered all of our questions and was responsive. Having Steve at our wedding was like having another family member with us. I suspect he has great music taste of his own ;) but he was able to find all the songs we requested. He was very communicative and works quickly under pressure when wedding timelines change lol. Absolute best day of our lives. Thank you Steve for being a part of it! Even though we were slightly under prepared you were not! More...

Merchant Productions was incredible to deal with during our wedding. While planning, they met with us, more than once, in person before the wedding. They came to the rehearsal to make sure they were ready, and we're very early getting to the venue the day of the wedding to set up. We were so impressed with how fast they responded to us anytime we had questions. They were professional, fun, and one of the best choices we could have made for our wedding. More...

24 September 2016

Steve was a phenomenal DJ! He reached out to our wedding venue/coordinator to make sure things were running smoothly a few days before the wedding when I was busy. On the day of the event, he showed up in plenty of time to set up our ceremony and reception music. His song selections were perfect - he used the few selections I had given him and created a playlist based on our style.

Our wedding was fairly small and a lot of our guests aren't big dancers, so I was a little nervous our reception wouldn't be very fun. Steve made sure to read the crowd, made jokes, and even jumped out on the dance floor to get more people dancing and having fun.

Also, without me even knowing, he took hundreds of pictures of our wedding, including the décor details, ceremony, and reception. He picked about 150 and shared them with me as an album within a few days of the wedding. I had no idea he would do this, he didn't charge us anything for it, and the pictures were wonderful!

Seriously - book DJ Scuba Steve and you won't regret it! I have nothing but positive things to say about the entire experience!

DJ Scuba Steve was the best!! He wanted to meet with us before the wedding to get to know us and get a feel for our style. I really liked that... It's nice to meet and chat with people to make sure you are a good fit for each other. Anytime I had to email him about anything, he was super communicative and when get back with me very quickly. He would also explain things in detail for me instead of just sending a one word response. He came to the rehearsal dinner and introduced himself to everyone - he talked to everyone as if they were his best buddy which made you feel super comfortable. At the reception, he was so energetic and fun that he got everyone out on the dance floor. We had such a blast. Everyone told me that our wedding was one of the funnest wedding they have ever been to and I credit a lot of that to Steve. Overall he was super professional, super friendly, and super fun! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ to help host the event! More...

Steve is the best!!! He is so fun and energetic and always gets the crowd going! His music selection is always perfect too! We have been to several events he has been at and they are always fun and we knew we had to have him for our wedding! Not only is Steve phenomenal, his whole crew is great! We have used a couple of the other DJ's with this group for other things and they were great too. We have never been disappointed. Steve also did our uplighting for the wedding reception and he made us a monogram that was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend Merchant Productions for any of your party needs! More...

We used Scubasteve 5 years ago after attending a couple of other weddings where he was the DJ. Each time, including our wedding, was nothing short of spectacular! I have recommended my friend to multiple people over the years and will continue to do so. In fact, we have used him for other events including my 40th birthday party last week, and to no surprise, it was awesome! Thanks, Scuba for being professional, exceptional, always going above and beyond expectations! And let's not forget your co-DJ, Jenn! You guys are the best!!! More...

Q&A

Connection. I read your guests for clues as to what will make people move. I get em warmed up while the evening is early. Depending on where I am in the country, and what style of reception we have, will dictate what will break the dancefloor open. Being in sync with you and reading your guests properly let's me connect and pack the dance floor all night. Sometimes I'll just break the ice myself and lead some dances. Every event is unique in that regard.

In one word, Interactive! The best part of coordinating any event/party is the ability to connect with my audience. Sometimes quips and phrases on the mic get it done. Sometimes dancing with you and your guests. Sometimes the music takes over and an awesome synergy takes place. Connection is the goal and talking too much on the mic is usually a hinderance. It's a big NO NO for me.

It sounds cheesy but nothing is more fun than watching people have a great time and knowing that I was able to provide it. Nothing is more satisfying.

Watching my parents struggle through their own personal lives. Watching them try to provide for the family and not being able to achieve the level of success they wanted on an hourly/salary basis. I knew I wanted a different life and working for others wouldn't get me there.

There is no one better at making the event all about them. I am a performer and I do love the stage but the night is not about me in most cases. It's about the guest of honor and everything on the night should reflect that.
