About DJ Scot

Let’s start with the personal info, I am originally from Ohio.  I have been all over the world as a 26 year veteran of the Air Force (now retired!).  I am married with two daughters and two granddaughters. 

I have always loved music.  I have been DJing since 1995.  It all started when I deployed to Bosnia.  The base commander saw that I had about 300 CDs with me (just for me).  He asked me to play at the Christmas party and then again at a Combat Dining In for the 4 star general in charge of Air Forces in Europe.  He enjoyed the party enough to present me with his commander’s coin.  When I returned to Germany from the deployment, I started to get the proper equipment and do small parties for the squadron.  I soon grew to doing various Christmas parties and other events, anything to keep busy and gain experience-I loved it!

When the military moved me to Oklahoma in 1999, I was able to expand my repertoire to include sports announcing, running contests, karaoke, and sound technician.  I became the house DJ at the base club.  At the club, I directed and performed the monthly family night with child focused music and games.

Some of the highlights in Oklahoma are several weddings, birthdays, school dances, and retirements.  I became sports announcer for 2 local high schools for football, basketball and wrestling (announcer for the state wrestling championships).  I was requested to play a state event at the Oklahoma Governor Mansion to excellent reviews from the governor himself!  While deployed to Kuwait, I coordinated and performed for a full base party of over 1,000 Air Force, Army, and Marines with the American Ambassador to Kuwait as the guest of honor—quite a success!

I left Oklahoma in 2002 for a year in Korea,  while there I worked the three on base clubs every night of the week to keep busy and out of trouble…  While in Korea, I vastly increased my Karaoke experience and collection (over 20,000 songs).  I also created a Jeopardy-style game show with trivia questions, movie sound bites, and name that tune music questions.  This once a week show was the busiest night at the Mustang Club.  I also became the house sound tech and liaison to traveling shows visiting Osan.  I had the privilege of working with Chely Wright, Brad Martin, Jennifer Paige, and the Almost Nuts Band.

I arrived in Charleston January 2004 and have kept busy ever since.  I have become the only DJ for the security forces-16 parties in 6 years.  I am on my third year of performing for the local girls scouts “He and Me” father daughter dance.

I have also added mobile sound tech/stage manager to my capabilities with a 16 channel mixing board with enough microphones, power and speakers to make you sound like a headliner. 

Some of the highlights in Charleston:

  • Base Commander’s farewell party (three times)
  • Sports announcing for two local high schools (AMHS, CCS)
  • MC for base formal events—Induction/graduation ceremonies, annual awards
  • Chief retirement parties
  • My daughter’s senior prom!
  • 6 to 7 Christmas parties every year, most repeat customers 6 years running
  • Birthday parties ranging from sweet 16 up to 60
  • Live stage set at a Girl Scout festival with 3 bands, a dance troupe and guest speakers at the Navy Park.

Over three years associated with A Charleston Wedding and Other Brother Entertainment.  I became a premier DJ for both agencies performing for weddings virtually every weekend.  I performed for more than 150 weddings from khakis on the beach to fully formal at the various historical plantations and hotels around Charleston.

After retiring from the Air Force, I continue to work as an independent and with wedding coordinators.  When you hire me, you get my dedication and work ethic.  You can be confident that the complete success of your event is my only goal.

In conclusion I have a wide variety of experience, and know what it takes to make your event a complete success. My goal is to provide you with the entertainment that is perfect for you and your event!
