We wanted our reception to be a party and DJ Cool Out provided that! We had a great time at our wedding and so did our guests.
Scratch Weddings was a great choice for our wedding. They were so professional and made things very easy for us during a stressful time. DJ Tracktion was awesome and had everyone on the dance floor all night! We highly recommend Scratch Weddings and DJ Tracktion!
We just had our wedding at the Brooklyn Winery this past Friday and we hired DJ Alkaline, I was a little bit worried because I am Colombian and I had really specific music on my mind. 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.
We used Scratch and DJ Sevim at our Miami wedding and were thrilled with how things turned out. Scratch is incredibly reliable -- they always responded to our emails and questions and were on top of all aspects of the music and sound at our ceremony and reception. We got so many compliments on the dance music and the party was fantastic. We highly recommend Scratch Weddings and DJ Sevim!
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...
I had DJ Premo and he was fantastic!!! My guest had a great time because he had the party going all night!!
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!

DJ Eskada from Scratch Weddings did an absolutely WONDERFUL job at our wedding reception! (The Walters Art Museum 9/29/12) All of our requested songs for the bridal party entrance and dances were perfect.
She got the "feel" that we wanted for our reception and kept the dance floor packed the entire night! All of our guests were commenting on how fantastic she was.
DJ Fernando S was phenomenal!!! At one point during the reception my Dad asked me if I gave him a list of songs to play or if he was just playing songs at random and I told him that he was picking them...my Dad was floored and said he was really really good. DJ Fernando S was really good at reading the room and my guests had an awesome time on the dance floor. On top of that, he did a great job with the announcement of my husband and I, which was a funny request to make it sound like we were being called from the bullpen at Yankee Stadium... sooooo fun!!!!
We used Dan at Scratch Weddings in NYC. Dan did a great job incorporating our requests into the playlist and the music flow was just how we hoped it would be all night. He even edited a live version of our favorite song to make it fit for our first dance. He was a lot of fun to work with and we would hire them again!!!
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!
Thank you Scratch Weddings and DJ As One.
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.
Working with Scratch was a seamless process -- they took care of everything and didn't let any small details fall through the cracks. DJ Morsey was amazing -- we got tons of compliments on the music. We'd definitely recommend him!

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.
We had DJ Stef Nova and she was FRIGGIN' AWESOME. So chill and totally got our vibe. Everyone said how much they loved the music.
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 :)
