In A Class Of His Own!!!
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.Sent on 10/16/2019
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 GO forty times :) Stephen was the absolute 180 of that. He MC'd the entire evening, but in a way that was classy and far from the cringeworthy DJ you have all seen at a wedding. The way he plays music is so appealing to all ages and it made our group really come together. Watching my 60 year old uncle rocking out to an "Outkast" cover by Stephen playing live on the piano....... was priceless.
We visited each table during dinner to thank our guests and had over 10 people say, "where did you find this guy?" We still have people talking about the music at our wedding!
I can't thank Stephen enough for making our wedding something we will never forget. He offers something you just won't see and it’s something that makes a HUGE difference on the overall outcome. You don’t realize how important music is until you understand it happens at your wedding for 5 hours :) Stephen will blow your mind!

Absolute class act
When we started out searching for a band or DJ one of the criteria I had was NOTHING CHEESY. We have all been to those weddings with the band or DJ that is on a microphone all night yelling at the crowd like it’s a club at 1:30 AM and we just didn’t want that. We also didn’t want the same wedding music you hear over and over.Sent on 10/17/2019
We searched and searched and my husband, now my husband, :) found Darby Events. After setting up a call we knew he was our guy.
Fast forward to our wedding and he was absolutely amazing. So classy and professional as an MC and his music is unlike anything we or our guests had experienced. We were just so blown away. Everyone is still talking about the DJ that played the piano and the music overall could not have been more perfect.
When your guests see how he DJs and then plays the piano live, the jaws just hit the floor. He’s like a band and a DJ in one without the breaks and extra crap that comes with a band.
Stephen you made our wedding the greatest night of our lives and we will be forever grateful. You truly are a class - act and one of a kind. Word of advice - book him early!! We inquired almost a year and a half away and he had ours and maybe a couple dates left. You will see why when you hire him :)

On another level!
You will not find a more talented DJ in the Southeast. Stephen from Darby Events created a party atmosphere unlike anything we have ever seen. Our guests talk about the DJ more than ANYTHING else from our wedding. The way he plays and mixes music is on another level. We did a lot of research and are so happy we did. Stephen will absolutely smoke a band when it comes to energy and dancing at your wedding. We absolutely love this guy and can't thank him enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams!!!Sent on 09/05/2019
Darby is the most talented DJ and musician Ive ever met. There aren't to many individuals in the world that can meld two worlds, DJ and musician like Darby. This is the ultimate provider of DJ entertainment and music that any couple could hire whether in Charleston or anywhere around the world. I highly recommend hiring Darby, because what he offers, no one can!
If you are looking for a DJ, don't look any further! Stephen is the best DJ in Charleston, and you won't regret hiring him! Our couples love working with him just as much as we do! Highly recommend!
We love working with Stephen! He brings a unique performance to our weddings. He is creative, professional and engaging! And he always keeps the party going...
