Everyone knows the DJ sets the tone for any wedding. When guests left our wedding and for weeks after, they repeatedly told us: “Best Wedding Ever!” We attribute so much of that to Scott Arrington of Murray Hill Talent. My husband and I were a little nervous when it came to music because most of what we listen to isn’t really dance music. We wanted to hear some of our favorite songs but obviously wanted people to get out there and dance. We let Scott know what we liked for music but told him to use his judgment to get people dancing. It worked out perfectly! Before the real dancing began, as I was walking around greeting everyone, I kept saying “oh, I love this song”. Then once things got going people did not leave the dance floor! I got to hear all of my favorites early on in the night but when the time came to hit the dance floor Scott did his thing and kept the party going! Aside from the few announcements we asked him to make he didn’t say a word. No cheesy line dances. No contests. No talking over the music. He stuck to my do not play list. Played the songs I wanted to hear at the appropriate times. And most importantly, he kept people on the dance floor. You can’t ask for too much more than that! He was professional and easy to work with throughout the planning process and did an amazing job the night of our wedding. If you want people to have a good time at your wedding hire Scott Arrington!
How did your wedding musicians keep the party going? The band did a masterful job of keeping the tempo going and accommodating our musical requests/preferences. There was never an awkward moment when they cleared out the dance floor and a number of people asked for their name for future reference.
First dance song? Baby I Love You, Aretha Franklin
How did your wedding musicians keep the party going? They never quit!! Flipside, our wedding band, was unbelievable. I cannot tell you how many guests still rave about this band. They have an unbelievable range of songs and can jam like mad. BEST WEDDING BAND!
DJ or Band interaction with the wedding guests? Numbers exchanged? They got the crowd excited, they kept it going, and they even let one of the groomsman sing a song with them! Seriously, I don't think anyone sat the entire night.
Favorite wedding reception song & dance? Of course, the first dance, partly b/c it was my first dance and partly b/c Flipside learned and perfected this song because I wanted it for my first dance. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for any New England wedding.
