  • Scott at Hot Mix was amazing! We had to change our party due to COVID and he was understanding and flexible. He made our party so special and kept our guests dancing all night. We had more fun than we could have imagined!

  • Scott has been incredibly professional from the very start. Our wedding was originally scheduled for March 21st, 2020, but unfortunately was cancelled due to COVID-19. We cancelled our wedding 6 days before the date and I was dreading making calls to all of our vendors to face the possibility of losing all of our money. Scott handled our situation with empathy and class and we could not be more grateful. He has worked with us for months, holding dates and releasing dates and holding more dates, just to be sure we got exactly the day we wanted. We would choose Hot Mix Entertainment over and over again!

  • Scott was amazing! He broke his leg shortly before our wedding and not once gave us any doubt he would still get the job done and do it well. And that he did! We had many compliments on the DJ and can’t recommend him enough! The lighting he suggested and provided really made the room romantic and special. So happy with the services!

  • Scott Silz is a great DJ and a consummate professional. During our planning process, Scott was extremely responsive, setting up requested consultations immediately and spending lots of time with us in his office. He asked questions to understand what we wanted and gave us great advice on everything from sound and lighting to scheduling and planning. On our wedding day, he and his staff did an excellent job from the moment they arrived extra early. Scott was a gracious MC, the dancefloor lighting looked awesome, and Scott's mix of music was perfectly calibrated to keep our friends and family dancing. It was great to have a house music legend DJ our wedding!

  • We knew from the moment we hired Hot Mix Entertainment we hit the jackpot. Scott was friendly, organized and always answered all my questions leading up to the big day. When the big day came I had no worries at all! We had last minute changes and he worked with us right in the moment. The music was amazing, there was never a time the dance floor was empty. After the wedding, many people came up and said the best thing about the wedding, was the DJ, thanks so much Scott!

  • Scott Silz from Hot Mix did a phenomenal job! He was professional from start to finish, catering to all your needs and making sure the flow of your reception will go perfectly. From showing up early to ensure proper set up without technical difficulty until take down at the end. He has a perfect announcement voice, and great song choice to keep the party moving. One of the best parts for us was that we love electronic music from deep house to bangin' techno, and he was able to go flawlessly from the classics and some hip-hop straight into it, while keeping the dance floor filled! Everyone was impressed and excited that we got to have a wedding and entertainment of this style! Would definitely recommend Scott if you want the best music of any genre, and if you want it to flow properly with great equipment, sound, lights, and no hassle! And for the price you pay you're getting significantly more quality than you would any other service, thank you Scott! :)

  • When we first met with Scott we realized he was perfect for us. He helped us figure out the flow of our day and got us to think about details we wouldn't have on our own. Our wedding day was executed perfectly A pleasure to work with from the very first inquiry to the last song of the night at our wedding! Scott was committed from the very beginning to help us create the wedding of our dreams.

  • We hired Hot Mix Entertainment for our wedding, and couldn't be happier! Barbara was always there if we had any questions or if we just wanted to discuss our wedding. DJ Rich crushed the 1s and 2s on our wedding night, and the party never stopped. From the moment we met Rich, we were impressed by his energy and knowledge, he really shined! The setup, song choice and feel for the crowd was second to none. We would highly recommend you hire Hot Mix Entertainment!

  • For those reading this review, if you're anything like me, you tend to not trust most online reviews. However, I can 110% honestly say that Hot Mix Entertainment is a must have for your event. Our wedding was two weeks ago and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ! I had guests reaching out to me to comment on how amazing he was and how great the music was. Scott really kept everyone excited and dancing!

  • DJ Scott is one of the best DJ's around. His friendly personality made planning my wedding from across the country very easy and stress free. If I had any questions or concerns I would just e-mail them and get a response back immediately. Scott made the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception go by without a hitch! He is seriously the best! I could not be any happier that I chose Hot Mix Entertainment.

  • Hot Mix was by far our best vendor. Music was a big priority for us and we wanted to make sure we could get a great mix of 90’s and Top 40 plus some oldies for our parents and their friends. We saw Scott at House of Blues one night when he was spinning there and so we knew we were making a great decision to hire the best and the best is Scott and his team at Hot Mix Entertainment. Our friends and family were out on the dance floor from start to finish. Scott is a great emcee and really represented us well.

  • I’m serious when I say we literally planned our wedding date around when Scott Smokin SIlz was available. We went to a friend’s wedding about 2 weeks after getting engaged and the first decision we made in planning was to hire Scott to do our wedding. We didn't even consider another DJ. His team was incredibly responsive and I liked that Scott made sure everything we wanted was taken care of. Scott had a lot of great advice when it came to planning our ceremony, reception music and lighting. Our reception was a wild party and way more fun than we could have imagined.

  • Leading up to the event, everything had run smoothly. Scott was responsive and accommodating, but the day of was not at all what we expected. The ceremony was planned for outside, but needed to be moved inside due to weather. Prior to this, Scott informed us that he would need to charge us ~$650 to mike the ceremony outside (half of what we had already paid him), so we rented our own PA system ahead of time in order to avoid incurring this charge. Fast forward to the wedding day with the rain, we wanted to use his microphones inside because of the last minute switch. Our officiant had to convince him to let us use them because he wanted us to pay for them. He was for the most part incredibly frazzled throughout the night, and didn't respond to change very well once the ceremony had to be switched inside. In advance of the event, we had completed a workbook that specified some music we'd like to have played during the dancing portion. Scott ended up using songs meant for dancing dur... Read more
