Scott did a great job making the wedding really special - he brought everyone out on the dance floor, was incredibly flexible, and remembered the small details throughout the evening.
Scott who books the DJs is amazingly responsive, attentive and professional. He helped us plan the event and get everything ready. Julius, our DJ, was great! He really knew how to get the group engaged, was friendly with everyone, open to suggestions and kept the flow of the evening going. We got tons of compliments on the entire event and especially on the DJ. They made our daughter's wedding really special.
Scott is AMAZING. From the moment we first started talking, I knew he would be a great fit for our wedding. He was helpful throughout the entire process, always a pleasure to speak with, and come to day of, he was on top of everything and one step ahead of us. The music selection was great, he was flexible in regards to music choices/last minute changes, and kept everyone dancing. We cannot thank Scott enough for being a huge part of our day!
Scott was so amazing! He was very responsive and helpful during the planning process. He went above and beyond on our wedding day to make sure everything was perfect. Not only was he professional but so kind as well. Plus he had everyone dancing all night! We can't say enough good things about him and we highly recommend him.
We hired SHO Productions for our Mehndi/Wedding Welcome party in Glastonbury, CT. I was filled with so much trepidation planning this intercultural event (trying to juggle my husband’s family’s expectations of a traditional mehndi with what was within our budget and somewhat accessible to my non-desi family) – but Scott set my mind completely at ease! We were looking for a DJ who could host karaoke, incorporate Bollywood music, and work quite flexibly in a short span of time from dinner to performances to dance party. From the get go, Scott was up to this challenge and his calm, personable, and can-do manner made me feel much more confident that we could pull this off. And we totally did! Thanks to Scott’s advance planning, we had a great room setup, perfect lighting, and an awesome selection of music from beginning to end – and all for a very reasonable price!
And Julius was a phenomenal DJ and a really sweet guy. We had multiple guests doing MC duties at different points in the evening, and he handled this with total ease. Mehndis often feature performances from guests and our performance program not only came together sort of last minute, but included large group dances, karaoke performances, and even spoken word poetry. Julius managed all of this with total aplomb – it was totally seamless – and even beautifully sang a song himself! And when the floor opened up to everyone, he had EVERYBODY out of their seats and dancing! Our guests could not get enough!
Thank you so much to Scott and Julius for a really wonderful party! We cannot recommend you highly enough!!
I cannot recommend Scott and SHO Productions enough!! It's been a week since our wedding and our guests are still raving about the music and the uplighting. Scott was so courteous and communicative with us throughout the planning process and he didn't disappoint on the day of either! I cannot say enough about him! For perspective, my husband and I warned Scott that our friends and family weren't a group of big dancers. We told him that we thought that the floor would be empty most of the night and to please not use any silly games to drag people out. I don't even know why we warned him! People LOVED him! To our complete surprise, there was a time when all but 5 of our (multi-generational) guests were dancing! You can't go wrong with him!
My husband and I got married at the end of October and we keep telling each other how extremely happy we are that we found Scott at SHO Productions for our wedding. Throughout the planning process, Scott was great with emailed me back very quickly whenever I had questions. I liked that we talked on the phone closer to the wedding aswell to go over the flow for the day of the wedding one more time. He really calmed my wedding planning nerves! We’re still hearing about how great our DJ was from our guests. People were on the dance floor till the end, including me and my husband. During the wedding Scott would checked in with us to let us know when it was time for things like our entrance or bouquet toss. Him and our venue coordinator worked great together to make our day ran smoothly. It was like having another coordinator! And did I mention the price?!? Amazing! Lighting, music for the ceremony to the end of the wedding, MC service, and basically a wedding coordinator. One of the best decisions we made! Thank you Scott
I hired SHO Productions for my shower and my wedding.
The Shower (Location: Plainville, CT): We hired SHO because the first karaoke DJ we tried to book, was giving us a difficult time about the song book. We contacted Scott a few weeks before the shower. He had someone available for that day, and was so accommodating with all our questions and concerns about the song book. Julius was the karaoke DJ at the shower, and he was the best we've ever seen. He's sweet and pleasant, and he really knows how keep everything moving along nicely.
The Wedding (Location: NYC): Our original plan was to not have a DJ, and just have a playlist. As the wedding got closer, I started to feel like it was becoming too much. I'd had such a good experience with SHO for the shower, I decided to see if they would be able to do my wedding. Thankfully, it was the only Saturday they were available. Over the 2 months from the time I booked them to the actual wedding, Scott handled my LONG emails with class. I'm terrible at explaining what I want, and think more about the style and feel than the actual songs. Scott is REALLY good at understanding the vibe you're going for. I had him handle all my ceremony music, which he did perfectly. The cocktail hour was a great combination of classic songs and the hipster music my husband loves. The reception music was PERFECT!! Scott really understood the feeling I wanted, and made sure the guests had fun. He was definitely paying attention to which guests were the dancer, and played music that kept them on the floor the whole night.
SHO Productions is the only DJ you should hire. I could not be happier with how my music went. At the brunch the next day, the first thing everyone mentioned about my wedding was how good my music was.
Response from SHO Productions:
Thanks so much for the kind words Karen. I have to say that Karen and Chris (and Karen's mom Leslie) were so awesome to work with! Karen and Leslie were so great to communicate with throughout the months leading up to the big day, and that really makes my job that much easier. Also, the venue they selected in NYC was fantastic, and the staff there was super to work with. It was totally my pleasure to be a part of such a fun and enjoyable wedding...!!
SHO Productions is your one stop go to for all of your events. I met with Scott who was patient and took the time to listen to what I had to say, show me all my options and work within my budget.
I chose a band called Radio Waves and am so thankful I did! These musicians have set the bar for all others. They are professional, courteous, reasonably priced and their musical abilities are beyond amazing! From a casual get together to a black tie gala, Radio Waves will NOT disappoint!
Response from SHO Productions:
Thanks so much for the kind words Sandra. The feeling is definitely mutual. You were fantastic to work with, and we had a great time performing for you. What a successful and enjoyable event...!!!
Used their services for a Halloween Party hosted in our home- all I can say is they were excellent. Our guests had a wonderful time and danced the night away. Pat played non-stop and was very professional and courteous! Can't wait to use them again for our next party!! Thanks again for a great party!!
Response from SHO Productions:
Thanks for being such a great client to work with Liz. It was totally our pleasure to work with you!
It was a great pleasure working with Scott! He was a great DJ at our wedding on Oct 15th and all our guests had a blast! The dance floor was full and hopping all night! Our venue is even considering him on their preferred list!

Scott was absolutely wonderful! From driving out to a local Starbucks and meeting to discuss our vision, to responding to any e-mails quickly, he made planning easy. As classical musicians, my husband and I were very picky about the music that we wanted, and Scott catered to all our non-standard musical requests. He showed up over an hour early to set up and was energetic, upbeat, and highly professional. Our caterer, who does weddings every weekend, even commented that he was one of the best DJ's that they had ever worked with. I would highly recommend his services for any event!
Scott did a great job at our wedding. He was great to work with both during planning beforehand and during the wedding. He responded to every musical request we had, and knew exactly how to connect our favorite songs with the various segments of our reception. I would totally recommend him and SHO Productions for your wedding or other private event! Our guests gave us fantastic reviews as well!!
We have had Scott and his band mates play for us on two occasions. The dynomyte disco revue played for my husbands 65th birthday and Radio Waves played at my daughters wedding. There is nothing that compares to their professionalism and talents! Scott is very personable and goes out of his way to play special songs or requests. Everyone loves this band and everyone had a great time at both occasions! Forgive me you record spinners, but there is nothing like a live band at a party and Scott and his artists are the best!
SHO Productions made planning the music for our wedding easy! They were reasonably priced and professional. Scott handled everything from ceremony music to MC during our reception. He "spun" all our favorites and got the crowd dancing! He checked in with us during the wedding to see how we thought things were going and was very attentive. He's easy to work with and very personable! We highly recommend SHO Productions for your wedding!
Scott was excellent. He was very professional and all our guest had a great time.
My husband and I were looking for a great band for our wedding and we found it with Radio Waves! Scott was super easy to work with during the whole planning process and was SO flexible. We had the advantage of hearing them play a show at a bar on Halloween before hiring them so we knew we were getting the real deal before they even played our reception. They were true professionals and rocked our guests' socks off! I would highly recommend them not only because they were great but because they were so easy to work with. When you want every detail on your wedding day to be perfect, it gave me peace of mind to know the band was something we didn't have to worry about. Thank you for making our reception so fun, The Rosemans
