We really enjoyed having Scott as the DJ for our wedding.  He did a great job and we really appreciated how easy he was to communicate with and work with, and especially his flexibility with us to stay and hour longer than he needed to.  His coordination of the night's events was great and all of our guests really enjoyed themselves. Scott helped us have the perfect wedding reception !!!

Scott Simmons is by far the best DJ that we have even seen at an event! I’m not just saying this because it was our wedding, I’m saying this because he made the evening very memorable for everyone. We took a long time to find the perfect DJ. This was a challenge because we live in Cincinnati and were getting married in Akron. We knew that the number one most important thing at a wedding reception is the DJ. The DJ will make it or break it because he is the host of the evening and will keep things moving. I have been at weddings where people have their friends DJ and it has always been a mess. I have been to events where the DJs were drinking and hitting on women which is NOT cool. Scott is very professional. He made everyone feel welcome and appealed to everyone young and old. He played a great mix of music that kept everyone dancing ALL night long – even people who normally didn’t dance were on the floor shaking their booties! You can tell he is very experienced and knows how to keep the crown going! All the reviews that we read were right and if I had to do it again I would definitely hire him again. I would give him 5 stars!

Scott is a very attentive and talented DJ! Scott has assisted me with a half dozen events in the area and he is a true partner through it all. He offers advice and suggestions before the event and helps out while it's in progress. Scott tailors the music appropriately to the crowd in attendance and as the night progresses. He will add lighting (small or large display), a screen to project pictures, and even Wii bowling for the guests! He has the the perfect personality to be a super DJ! Great guy!  10/17/2014

Thank you so much for your services at our event, you were much more then we expected.  We could not have had things run so smoothly without you.  You were the perfect combination of DJ and event manager.

Thanks again,

Dear Scott,

Thank you so much for all the guidance, knowledge and fun that you provided at our wedding !!!  Your expertise showed from the moment we met and allowed for us to worry about nothing on Our day.  I've received so many compliments on how much fun people had and how much fun it looked like "I " was having, that would not have been possible if not for you!

Thank you again for everything,

Kasey & Sean Shapiro, B & O station, Youngstown, OH. 09/17/2011


            We wanted to send you a quick note and thank you for a great job you did at our wedding.  We received many compliments about how you made the night flow so easily and kept everyone moving.

p.s.  We loved your photo booth picture...

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding.  The music for the ceremony was perfect, and it was refreshing to us that we didn't have to worry about anything at the reception.  The events of the reception all went well because of you.  Thanks to you we had a wedding day we will never forget. 

Thank you again for everything.

Kristen & Drew Mazak, Cuyahoga Falls, OH.  05/05/2012

Our reception went off without a hitch, and there honestly wasn't a single thing we would have changed about it! A big part of that was due to the amazing job Scott did hosting our celebration. As soon as dinner was over and the cake was cut, the dance floor was packed, and it stayed that way the entire night, which is exactly what we were hoping for. We met with Scott one time just a few weeks before the wedding to run through the events of the reception and request certain songs. He was very professional and easy going at the same time, and more than willing to implement any ideas we had about our big night. The DJ can make or break a wedding reception, and Scott definitely made ours! We highly suggest getting a hold of him if anyone has an upcoming event. Scott was recommended to us and we'll definitely be passing his information on to friends and family looking for a DJ. Thanks again for doing such a great job Scott!

Hi Scott!
We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. You have been very easy to work with and very friendly since our first meeting together. We loved the top 200 song list because it made our job of song selection so much easier. Your website by far has been the easiest website to navigate! Our guests arrived earlier than we thought so you were willing to start the music earlier. Our guests really loved the Dollar Dash :) and our wedding party had a blast doing it! I also loved giving the rose to the couple who was married the longest when we did the anniversary dance.  You also asked our approval first of any songs that were requested by our guests which was much appreciated.  Thank you again for being an upbeat and interactive DJ. You didn't stand behind your equipment the whole time, but instead were on the dance floor interacting with us and our guests.

         I would like to thank you for the amazing job you did last night at my daughter's wedding.  After a quick change of plans, Samantha's wedding was only 2 weeks away and we had no DJ for the evening.  I found Scott's website and hoped he'd be able to help us, I'm SO glad I did.  My daughter and I met with Scott only 6 days before the wedding.  He came to the meeting well prepared and put us at ease immediately.  He got all of our information and walked us through the entire process from beginning to end as well as getting to know our music choices and making some great recommendations.  I was so thankful that he could work for us on such short notice.  Scott was very professional and did a great job guiding us through the evening and making sure there was no surprises or complications.  He let our guests know what to expect throughout the evening, such as letting them all know what event was coming next and where to be for each one.  He sought out the bridal party to inconspicuously tell them where to proceed to.  I honestly do not think we could have done it without him.  As for the music, sound system and lights, we could not have been more impressed.  Events and announcements flowed well with chosen music weaved throughout and we were all dancing the entire reception.  Several guests told me "it was the most fun that they had ever had" at a reception.  Samantha & Duane can't stop talking about how great the evening was, they loved Scott and believe that he made their day perfect.  I'll also mention that his prices can't be beat...  We Highly recommend Scott to anyone, he was a LIFE-SAVER for us.

Hi Scott! It's so exciting to see pictures of our monogram and up lighting on your website! I have to thank you sooo much for being an amazing DJ for our wedding! From the very beginning you were professional, warm, and friendly. I can honestly say it was a pleasure working with you the entire time. Thank you also for taking an extra day to set up the gobo and up lighting just to make sure it would look right in the hall. I was totally at ease when I saw you at the reception because I knew you had everything under control. I have heard nothing but great things from our guests about you. I love that people were dancing all night long and everything flowed from the toasts to the last dance. Thank you for being the best DJ we could have asked for! It was truly an amazing reception and we would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat! ~Natalie and Scott Deckerd, Hartville, OH. 07/08/2011

Clint and I would like to thank Scott for everything he did to make our event special and memorable. From the time of our first meeting over coffee to the days after our event, Scott was very professional, polite and personable. There was never any pressure, if anything, Scott took a lot of the pressure off of us. Our evening ran smoother than we ever imagined and it was due to Scott making sure everything was done at the right time and that everything was under control. We (particularly I, the bride) were able to relax and enjoy ourselves and our guests because of Scott's professionalism and organization. A variety of music was played to keep our guests dancing all night long, which made for some very exciting moments. Scott's services were so good that we would definitely use him again and recommend him to others. Even some of our family were inquiring about his services for their upcoming events. Thank you again for an amazing night that we will always remember!!

I highly recommend Scott Simmons from DJ Express to host any event.  Scott was the DJ for my wedding on 8/25/13 and he went above and beyond the duties of a "normal" DJ.  My husband and I loved Scott from the very first time we met.  He was willing to meet us at any location, was very organized, and was always very nice and professional.  My husband and I were concerned to start the wedding planning process since we would be having a Jewish/Greek hybrid wedding.  That being said, we wanted and needed some particular music to be played at our reception.  Scott was very willing and capable of making these adjustments for us.  My family was very difficult at times but Scott was very nice about it and only listened to my husband and I, which was very nice to know!  Scott is more than just a DJ.  He represents you and your entire wedding by making sure everything that you want is done how you want it.  Additionally, what sold me was his general customer service outreach.  He greeted all of my guests and showed them where their tables were, offered to take my dinner plate to my table, and was fun the entire night!  Scott's prices, packages, add ons, and customer service cannot be matched!  Do not waste your money on some big company when you can get amazing service with DJ Express at half the cost!!    Angela & Josh Golner

"DJ Express is a very well run business. Scott is very professional, and he covers all the little details that could be stressful for those planning an event. Our wedding at NEOMED in Rootstown, Ohio was perfect with Scott's services. The reception looked beautiful with all the up lighting, too. I highly recommend Scott, not just to those planning a wedding, but to anyone with an upcoming event. He also has great ideas to keep the party alive with games and singing events. It was the best time of our lives!"

I have been to a number of functions that Scott has DJ'd, I was consistently impressed with his ability to keep both the crowd and his clients happy.  When we first got engaged, we immediately thought of Scott as the DJ we wanted for our wedding!  He did a fantastic job at listening to our wants and guiding us when we unsure of which songs/style to go with for our reception.  Scott will take the time to listen to his clients' desires and exceed their expectations with his professionalism and enthusiasm for what he does.  We truly believe that music can make or break a wedding reception and believe this is reflected in how many compliments we received when it came to our DJ and choices in music.  We have already recommended him to several friends who are now planning their weddings.

Scott is the best DJ I could have ever asked for our wedding! He played a variety of great music that kept the party going the whole night. Our grandparents, parents, friends and family were all out dancing and having a blast! He made sure our whole event ran smoothly, including our entrance, dinner, and coordinated with the hall staff. He even carried my dinner plate to the table for me so I didn't make a mess on my dress!!! I would recommend him to any and all of my family and friends who are getting married or having a big party that they want a DJ for. He is the best!!!! Thank you Scott!!! -Kara & Cory Durbin, Cuyahoga Falls, OH. (krldurb35 @gmail.com) 330-285-6553, 06/01/2013

Past Customer Referrals

When we hired Scott to DJ our wedding, we thought we would be getting just that; someone to play music and do a bit of announcing.  We could not have been more wrong!  What we got with Scott was someone who took the time and care to make sure all of the components to our reception were in place, and then ensure that everything went according to plan on the night of the reception.  We were extremely impressed with the level of detail Scott went into when helping us plan our reception.  He brought a very organized and easy to understand approach to laying out the evening's events and it was obvious to us that he had our best interests in mind.  Scott gave great advice based on his years of experience but never pushed us into making a decision that we weren't comfortable with.  On the night of the wedding, Scott showed up to the reception hall early to begin setting up and working with the facility staff to ensure that everything was ready for when our guests arrived.  As the evening unfolded, Scott made sure that all of the proceedings (dinner, cake cutting, boquet, garter, first dance, etc...) were happening in a timely and organized fashion, making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be at the right time.  To top it all off, Scott played a great set of music to keep our guests out on the floor even into the late hours of the evening!  What you get with D.J. Express and Scott is more than a DJ service.  You get a personal and dedicated event planner who goes out of his way to cater to your needs.  If you are in the market for a DJ for a wedding or any special event, we highly recommend contacting Scott at DJ Express!

Thank You Scott!
