  • I must say in this unusual time to have a dream wedding, we would not have been able to get through this without the help and dedication of Scott and Lisa. We began the process with them with more than a year to plan. From the beginning they were on top of things helping us choose music, a logo and other things they could provide to make this wedding filled with fun. Then Covid hit and we were unable to have the dream wedding as planned. We quickly rescheduled and they were right there with us during the process. Little did we know that after a four month reschedule we would have to change things again. We were no longer able to have our large venue and our wedding was cut back to one third of the original invites and the space was cut even smaller than that. But Scott and Lisa were right there beside us. They were flexible with the changes and gave us some terrific input on how to make this work. Even at the last minute when a torrential rain and a lightning strike came upon ... Read more

    Hey Joan, Thank you, thank you, thank you for the awesome review. It means more than you know. Yes, it definitely has been a trying time the past few months, but I think your "AWESOME TEAM" pulled it off quite well to say the least. We are so happy for Kaitlyn & Nick and wish you all the very best. The big day was truly a success without a doubt....Covid, rain and all. We love you guys and can't wait to see you soon!!

  • I could not have asked for a better DJ! I first saw Scott at a wedding I had attended when I first got engaged so I reached out to him to see if he had our date available and luckily he did. He is very thorough with the planning process and super easy to communicate with. He even took a few candid pictures of us at the wedding which I thought was so sweet. If you are looking for a DJ, he is your guy! You also can't beat his prices.

    Hey Melanie & Trey, "Congratulations" again my friends! We saw your honeymoon pics and they were amazing to say the very least. I bet it was hard to leave that place for sure. Thank you so much for the kind words and great review. You guys were so fun to work with and we loved meeting your family and friends. It was truly a blast!! We truly hope our paths cross again someday. You are a beautiful couple and we wish you all the happiness in the world. Best wishes, DJ Scott & Lisa Ely Avalanche Sound, Lights & Photo Booth

  • Scott and his wife were absolutely amazing to use for my wedding on October 10th! We opted for the mirror photo booth and I’m so glad that we did! It was such a hit! My now husband and I threw Scott a curve ball and wanted him to do a NBA style bridal party intro and he delivered! We wrote out sayings for each member of our bridal party and had them introduced. It was such a hit! They were so flexible with us changing venues last minute and were so easy to work with :) 10/10 recommend!

    Megan & Jason, “CONGRATULATIONS” again my friends! You all were so fun to work with and I knew you would be from the first time we met. We absolutely loved meeting your friends and family and spending the wedding weekend with them all. The teamwork we witnessed to make this the best day ever for you two was definitely over the top!! There was not only hard work involved, but sooo much love too. You both are very blessed for sure. Lisa and I wish you the very best and I truly hope and pray our paths cross again soon. Best wishes, DJ Scott & Lisa Ely Avalanche Sound, Lights & Photo Booth

  • We had the best rehearsal dinner and wedding reception thanks to DJ Scott and Lisa Ely. Scott did a great job acquiring and playing all the songs requested. He was soo easy to work with. He arrived in a timely manner and was dressed very professional. Lisa did an amazing job with the photo mirror. It was a big hit. They helped our guess have the best time both nights. The dance floor was never empty. Our guest were asking for his info during the night. We will definitely use Avalanche Sound, Lights & Photo Booth in the future. Love you guys!

    Hi Lori, Thank you so much for your kind words. You all were so fun to work with and it was great meeting everyone. We felt like we had been friends for years. Lisa and I both hope our paths cross again. Megan and Jason started out right without a doubt and we wish them all the happiness in the world. Thanks again and best of luck, DJ Scott & Lisa Ely

  • AWESOME!!!! Reliable, reasonably priced, great personality, prompt, courteous, very professional and did everything we asked o led them. Scott and his wife checked off all the right boxes! There was never a doubt that they would put on a wonderful show. I am so happy you were recommended to me by so many to handle my daughter’s wedding. Scott Ely and his wife Lisa make the perfect team with Scott being the DJ and Lisa handling the fantastic MIRROR ME Photo Booth which adds a lot of extra fun to the party. You will never regret hiring Avalanche Sound, Lights & Photo Booth for all your DJ needs. (919) 922-5180. Call Scott and Lisa today and you won’t be sorry tomorrow.

    Cindy, You are so kind my dear. We so appreciate your kind words. It was truly a joy to work with you all and meet your family and friends. I don't think we have ever seen this much teamwork with any wedding we have done over the years. It took a village to pull it all off and "WE" did it for sure. We are truly blessed that our paths have come together and so happy we could be part of Megan & Jason's special day. Please stay in touch!! Best wishes, Scott & Lisa Ely Avalanche Sound, Lights & Photo Booth

He was so gracious about the set up.. it was outside and it had just stormed the day prior.. But Scott and Lisa knocked it outta the park. We truly couldn't have been happier and oor more grateful for the atmosphere he created!! Definitely a great kickoff party to celebrate my Graduate starting her life!!

  • I have had the opportunity to work with Avalanche Sounds and Lights on 2 different occasions and both time they knocked it out of the park. Wow! I can’t imagine why anyone would use anyone else. Scott and Lisa are amazing and make such a great team! They go above and beyond. I absolutely love them!

  • When we first met Scott he was such a sweet genuine soul we got along great and had a wonderful conversation. After our first initial meeting we knew right away we wanted to hire him. So we did and we were not disappointed he played every song I requested and even when people came up to him and asked him to play a sing he did. His light set up made the dance floor come alive and made everyone get on their feet and move. It was such a wonderful night and we couldn't of asked for a better DJ. If you want a dj who is super sweet and so is his beautiful wife who will keep the party going hire him right away! Best prices, best service, best personality.

  • After reading DJ Scott's "about me" section, I already had a great feeling his personality will match my husband and I's... and I was right. He was prompt to respond to my inquiry and continue to do so as my questions and excitement grew. We decided to meet in person (for formality purposes. I've had a gut feeling he was the right DJ for us from the get go.). Our meeting went very well! He was extremely detailed, listened to what I wanted, and provided feedback to some ideas I had. Unfortunately, my husband and I needed to cancel our reception due to unexpected circumstances. Even though we're not doing it this year, we will definitely go back to DJ Scott once we're ready!

    Hey Claudette, Thank you so much. It was a pleasure meeting you and I am looking to someday being part of your big day. We will definitely do it up big for sure. Please take care and if I can be of any help just let me know. Best wishes, DJ Scott Avalanche Sound & Lights

  • We hired DJ Scott Ely for our wedding before this COVID-19 pandemic evolved. As the situation worsened we found ourselves having to replan our wedding one week prior to the due date to move it to our home front/backyard. Scott was with us throughout the entire process and was very flexible with the last minute changes. He made creating the music timeline very easy as he provided us with a template and song list examples. We danced all night long. He not only played what we requested but his music selection was perfect and kept people on the dance floor even with a 90 degree weather. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and fun. So if you want to hire an excellent DJ, consider DJ Scott Ely. He also works for himself so you will get him. You are not hiring some DJ company and getting some random DJ assigned.

    Ian & Katia, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You guys were sooooo much fun. I told you that COVID mess wasn't going to keep us down. Lisa and I were so happy to be part of your big day and it couldn't have been better if we tried. We truly hope our paths cross again in the future. We wish you all the happiness in the world!! Best wishes, DJ Scott & Lisa Ely Avalanche Sound, Lights & Photo Booth
