As a part of Scratch Music Group, which runs the prestigious Scratch DJ Academy co-developed by Jam Master Jay of Run DMC, Scratch Weddings takes pride in our team of highly-skilled and screened marquee-level wedding DJs. Our diverse group of talent combines extensive wedding experience with seasoned professional backgrounds including club residencies, performances at music festivals and collaborations with major recording artists like Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, The Black Eyed Peas and Snoop Dogg. We provide each couple with a choice of DJs who are matched to them through criteria including personal taste, style and musical interest. Every Scratch Weddings DJ is an expert at song selection, mixing and blending, reading the crowd, building energy on the dance floor and, ultimately, entertaining guests of all ages and cultures.
what inspires you?
What inspires us? It’s simple…comments like these:
"I was really nervous about finding the right DJ, as my family is very particular about what music they hear and we have very different tastes (my dad = super old country, me = J5 and Tribe Called Quest hip hop) but Vida mixed everything flawlessly. She even pulled out favorites I hadn't thought to request. We were married in Buffalo, NY and Vida traveled there and back, set everything up, and provided perfect music for the ceremony and the reception. The whole staff at Scratch was extremely helpful, attentive, and responsive as well as amazingly flexible (my venue didn't have the most attentive day-of attendant, but that didn't faze anyone.) I'd have another wedding just to have Vida spin for a while longer!"
"I highly recommend Scratch DJs for weddings or any other event. The staff and our DJ, Dan Chavez, worked with us throughout our entire planning process to ensure that the music would reflect our range of music interests (dirty southern hip hop, mainstream hip hop, indie rock, reggae, 80s, doowop) and keep our guests dancing. They were so nice and organized and the music was incredible. He was so good at reading the crowd that we had old folk dancing to Lil Jon. Thank you so much for helping us throw a rocking party!"
"Scratch should be everyone's first choice for their wedding DJ. That's all there is to it. The service is impeccable, their DJ's are incredibly talented, and their crews are like ninjas with the equipment set-up and strike. All of this makes for a 100% worry-free day with guaranteed success on the dance floor."
"DJ Chris CoolOut was FANTASTIC!! He really listened to what we wanted in our music selection and created a spectacular playlist that kept our wedding guests on the dance floor all night long! Some of guests told me that hadn't danced in 20 years but they couldn't stay in their seats that night."
