  • Stephen was so amazing!!! From the very first time we spoke to him on the phone, we were so excited to have found him! He was very easy to communicate with, he always got back very quickly with any questions we had, and was SO GOOD on our wedding day!! My husband and I, and all of our friends and families keep talking about how amazing he was! He kept us all on the dance floor THE ENTIRE NIGHT! He kept the good tunes going all night long and was a huge reason why we all had so much fun! We did a Venezuelan tradition called "La Hora Loca" and he absolutely crushed it-you would have thought he was venezuelan or hispanic himself! All of the songs were ON POINT! I wish I could have another party so that he could DJ for us again! He also is so good on his piano-the music during dinner sounded so beautiful. I could not recommend Stephen enough!

  • We were so fortunate to have Stephen from Darby Events at our wedding and there is simply not a better option for entertainment in Charleston. My brother owns talent agency in Texas and was probably the most impressed of anyone. Stephen is an amazing guy and was so great to work with leading up to the wedding. Once he gets going, its truly mind-blowing to watch. My guests have not stopped talking about "the best DJ ever" and he was the very best decision we made for our wedding. His music absolutely made our entire evening. If you have a chance to book him, you will have a wedding that your friends and family will remember. Your guests will talk about it for months and you too will be writing a review like this. WE LOVE YOU STEPHEN! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

  • 10/10 would recommend Stephen! Being a wedding coordinator, I can always count on Stephen to make wedding days so much easier and stress free! In addition to being incredibly talented, he is so kind, creative, and hilarious. He's an amazing DJ and offers such a fun and different element by playing the piano while he's DJing. Book him for your next event - you won't regret it!

  • Wow - Stephen Darby was the MVP of our wedding day! People have messaged us asking for his name and playlist after the wedding so they could listen to more of his music and mixes! Not only did he play and mix our favorite music so well - he added amazing piano elements and remixes in that kept everyone on their feet wondering what amazing song would be next! Our goal was to have everyone on the dance floor from start to finish and he delivered! Also, he's got the reputation to match it. Every vendor we worked with said how excited they were to work with Stephen which says a lot about his quality of service in the wedding world!! We also used his awesome mirror photo booth and it was a fan favorite the whole night! What a memorable and fun evening!! We will forever be his #1 fans!!!!

  • Stephen is, hands-down, the best wedding DJ I have ever heard. Just incredible. I had guests tell me they wanted to re-do their wedding just so they could hire Stephen to do their wedding. Others told me they wanted to see him come to our city on a tour. Just incredible. His own mixes with the piano were sublime and his ability to flow from song to song was perfect. I want recordings of his piano mixes for a ton of songs. He also did the lightning (he transformed the space entirely), the photo booth and the ceremony audio. All perfect, no hassle, and the photo booth in particular was a huge hit. I can't recommend Stephen enough. I want to hire him for every event I have.

  • Book. Stephen. It will make your wedding and blow away you guests. I made a Gmail account just to write this review, from my honeymoon cabana I might add. Woohoo! First off, we did MAJOR research for music at our wedding. We read a ton of reviews - and reviews are so tough because you know most are fake. How can all of these companies have ALL 5 star reviews?! Its just impossible and tough to sort through but my feeling toward the review system is the reason I wanted to make sure I wrote a review for Stephen. Music was something that was so important to us. Getting married in Atlanta, GA gave us a ton of options. But nothing clicked. My friends are all getting married and we have seen so many bands and DJs as guests, most of which are Atlanta based. But we just couldn’t find something we were ready to book. 4 weeks into talking with numerous companies and music options and watching promo videos, my maid of honor sent me a video she found on Instagram. It was Darby playing... Read more

  • Working with Stephen was an absolute dream! There were two things I planned my wedding around, my venues availability and Stephen Darby's availability. He literally made the night! All of our guests raved about him and his talents. Not only did he make our wedding amazing, he was great to work with! We sang and danced all night!

  • If you are looking for a party - look no further. Darby events absolutely KILLED it at our wedding. We wanted empty seats the whole time and that's the exact outcome we had. Stephen is one of the most talented DJ's I've heard and has this amazing ability to combine a live keyboard/piano feel with some of the best mashups and remixes. Our entire wedding continues to rave about the music selection. We knew after the first phone call that he was the one we wanted to lead the party on our big day. Extremely responsive, affordable and so fun to work with. Would 10/10 recommend for any brides!

  • Truly unforgettable and Stephen made it happen. The gist of this review: If you are looking for a classy, high-end, insanely talented and memorable entertainer for your wedding - you WILL NOT find anything better than Stephen from Darby Events. We stumbled upon a video of Stephen on Instagram and were instantly hooked to his style. I knew what he did was special so my bride brain instantly emailed, messaged and called him :) In a matter of hours we got a message back and set up a call. After one conversation we both knew he had to be our guy - even if he was located half away across the country. So that is what we did. And it was the best decision we made for our wedding. After hours of watching videos and sound clips, searching for bands, finding his Instagram post made us realize how this would be perfect for our guests. The #1 thing that my husband did not want was "cheesy." As he describes it - the guy on the mic all night acting like a hype man, overdoing it, screaming LETS ... Read more

  • Stephen Darby is easily the best DJ out there. We did not even have to give him songs we wanted he was able to read the room and play all the songs we loved. I do not think for one second I or any of our guests left the dance floor. The combo he has with the keyboard is like no other DJ I have seen. Overall it was one of the best nights of our lives and Stephen contributed to that immensely.

  • Some people are good at what they do, some people are great. Stephen, however, has absolutely mastered the art of being a wedding DJ and an MC. Everything about him and his entire setup is elite. The ceremony went flawlessly without a single hold up or issue with the speakers, microphones, etc. In terms of the reception, Stephen's ability to take your interests/musical tastes and transform them into something amazing is truly unique. He was so in touch with the crowd the entire night and we cannot thank him enough for that! The live piano that he incorporates into his work is what really takes him to the next level and sets him apart from others in the industry. With Stephen, you are getting an incredibly talented and experienced artist, not just a DJ. We also booked his Photo booth services, which were of course top notch as well. The photo booth he uses is super high tech and he brought along an assistant to help operate it, who was also very fun to be around and i... Read more

  • Not a DJ - Stephen Darby is an artist Like I’m sure you did, I had to start googling DJs for my wedding and I will say started out a little a scary with some of the stuff I first saw. I stumbled on a video of Darby (Stephen) on Instagram and was intrigued. I found his website, scheduled a call with him and that was the single best decision we made for our wedding. There has not been one person in attendance that when thanking us afterward, did not mention how good the music was. It was the #1 thing guests took away from our night. The music was just so exceptional. People were getting up during dinner and dancing because they couldn’t stay sat. The dance floor was packed the entire night and watching Stephen perform is just an art. He is so incredible at what he does and the way he puts music together is just not like anything you have ever heard. Older, younger and in between, everyone loved it no matter what age they were. We cant thank him enough for giving us more than we co... Read more

  • KILLED IT. KILLED IT. KILLED IT. CANT RECOMMEND ENOUGH My hubby and I got married out West and struggled between Band vs DJ and were having a very large wedding, so it needed to work for the size. We had 400 guests and needed wow factor. I found Darby Events (Stephen) on Instagram looking at stuff for my wedding. I watched maybe 2 of his videos and loved it all. Our planning team and design team gave us referrals to different bands (they only use bands - and all from LA / Vegas) and I just didn't love it and after I found Stephen I just wanted him, even if he was in Charleston, South Carolina. One of the music agents we spoke with ironically was at a wedding Stephen was apart of and said - yeah...hes good :) And that meant alot and sealed the deal. Stephen has played for a lot of "higher profile" weddings and we learned a lot about that from a colleague of his. He's so modest but such a joy to talk to. Trying not to ramble! buuuut.... Our wedding was a massive party a... Read more

  • We had a small (37 person) Wedding and I was worried people wouldn't dance. I was so WRONG!! Darby had people dancing on the dance floor all night! So wonderful. We've had so many guests tell us how amazing our DJ was!!

  • I cannot say enough good thing about Darby Events, and Stephen! From the ceremony into the reception I would not change a thing, the music was always crowd pleasing and perfect for the moment and he really goes well above and beyond your average DJ experience. His talent is undeniable and I can't recommend him enough. If you are looking for a professional, fun, unique and absolutely amazing DJ look no further.
