As a music lover, the DJ was one of the highest priorities for me! From the first phone call, our music coordinator Dana handled the process with grace and professionalism! I had the pleasure of meeting our DJ, DJ Ollie, in the Cooper Square office where he spun some sample tunes for me and got to know our preferences as a couple.
Needless to say, this consummate professionalism continued to impress on our wedding day. People literally only sat down to eat or catch their breath! My grandma was dancing in her wheelchair! The tables were literally empty and the dance floor was packed the entire night. He played most of my suggestions (I provided a list of over 200 songs), took requests (that didn’t suck) and kept the event on and popping for the entire night. My only complaint is that it had to end. People kept referring to our wedding as a “great party” and I have Scratch and DJ Ollie to thank!

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. DJ Ollie did a wonderful job and I would recommend him to anyone!

“Thank you so much for all your help during the music selection. The music was a very important part of our wedding. With all the different types of music my guests like (both Spanish and English), I couldn’t help but to be a little worried about of well rounded the music would be. I LOVED all the ideas that DJ Ollie had. The day of the wedding it was so much fun!!! My guests and I tore the dance floor up. My mother danced so much that she had to take her shoes off at the end of night. All my guests came up to me to let us know they had an amazing time. And I owe that to DJ Ollie’s awesome spinning! Thanks for making our special day one of the best days ever!!! “

“We LOVED working with DJ Ollie. DJ Ollie was AMAZING! Personally and professionally he was exactly what we were looking for. He was patient, a great listener and went above and beyond by helping us mix the music for our first dance. We had guests that said goodnight to us and then we found them on the dance floor later in the evening, sweaty and out of breath, because they couldn’t stop dancing. Even the staff at our venue held their own dance party off to the side because the music was so good. We will recommend them to anyone looking to throw a great party. “

“DJ Ollie did a wonderful job at the wedding! No one wanted to leave the dance floor and complained that the night was just too short. It wasn’t the most easiest task to incorporate Laotian music with American; especially when DJ Ollie didn’t understand the language, but he did wonderful. The music all blended in so well. All the guest loved the variety of music. Everyone was on the dance floor from young kids to elderly aunts and uncles. Thank you both so much for a memorable evening!”

Vinny and I were seriously blown away by DJ Ollie last night! He’s absolutely incredible and we’re BEYOND excited to have him as our DJ!! Please pass it along that we were so grateful to meet him and everything he did for us last night. He seems to know exactly what to do to keep the crowd dancing. We loved: the fast transitions, the way he mixed the songs-slow and fast, the beats he had for the songs, the variety of the songs and not playing each song to the end with then a pause to the next song that some wedding dj’s do…
Thank you so much!!!

We ended up choosing DJ Ollie to spin at our wedding and we were blown away! Having a few conversations with DJ Ollie prior to the wedding really let them know our tastes and likes and the feeling we were going for. He listened to our vision for the day and once the day of the wedding came, DJ Ollie did not disappoint. He played all the songs we wanted to hear, a great mix. Our dance floor was PACKED the whole night! Everyone raved about how fun the wedding was and a huge part of that is because DJ Ollie really rocked. I would definitely recommend Scratch Weddings & DJ Ollie in particular, if you’re in the NJ/NY area.
