"The DJ Is The Party"
I have always loved music – from Classic Rock, Pop to Jazz, R&B, Blues and Country, to Disco/Dance, Big Band/American Songbook and World Fusion. So, it’s only natural that I would become a DJ. It all started with a small private event 4 years ago, and today, I’m regularly playing for a wide variety of special events in the DMV / Northern Virginia area ranging from private event themed music nights to large local community gatherings. I work hard to make every event special for my clients with curated playlists crafted in consultation with and aligned to the tastes of the host for the event. I let the music do the talking and keep my use of the microphone to announcements and the occasional song/artist info type of interaction with the guests. I also use the microphone for fun music/tv/event trivia games relating to the music/genre being played when requested by the venue or client.
When DJing an event, I follow some simple guidelines to ensure everyone has a great time:
• Make the space work for the guests — I work with the host to consult on the venue layout,
placement of DJ table, dance area/floor, tables, lighting, etc.
• Give them what they want but don’t be predictable — I play to the crowd, and not to my personal interests, in music. I keep things moving and keep people guessing by paying close attention to how the guests react and respond to the music played, sensing what they need to get them going.
• Variety is the key! — My playlists are curated for the venue or the theme, not just to my liking. My music collection spans every era in music back to the Big Band sounds of the 1940s through today’s popular music.
• Set the right mood — I strive to take the guests on a seamless musical journey and work with the host to establish critical elements like ambiance, sound levels, and lighting that set the right tone and add to the energy of the event.
Contact me today to learn how to energize your special event with music. I look forward to working with you!

"Our 55+ community hired Scott to be the DJ for our 60s-70s community party and we were not disappointed. He was great, and made our dance party so fun. The music was fabulous, and Scott even incorporated the Soul Train dance line for us! He is fun and amusing and kept us entertained the whole evening. He has since been hired by residents in our community to DJ their private events. Scott will definitely be the DJ for all of our community parties going forward!"
C. Maimon - Activities Coordinator at The Crest of Alexandria
"I attended a 70s party where Scott was the DJ. He did an excellent job playing 70s dance music, a 70s name that tune game, and a 70s name that commercial game. I decided to use him for our retirement party. I spoke with Scott beforehand to go over the event and type of music to play for each segment of the event. He is professional, responsive, has a huge repertoire of music, and knows how to play to the crowd. I highly recommend him!"

“I just attended a Gala celebration for our grand re-opening of our Community Center at Montebello. Scott's Music Place LLC, Scott, was the DJ during our dinner and dance. During dinner, the music was perfect, soft, and suitable! After the dinner, Scott had the crowd jumping to their feet and dancing up a storm. He listens to what the crowd is interested in and goes for it.
