The EXCEPTIONAL Scott “Smokin” Silz is #1 Above the Rest!!!
Not only was Scott our DJ & MC but also provided a great photo booth with tons of fun signage props. We even opted for the photo booth guest book keepsake which we have looked at several times since our wedding! We also chose the uplighting offered by Scott that was placed throughout the event space which really enhanced the ambiance of the room!
Overall, it was an absolute honor having Scott “Smokin” Silz a Chicago house music pioneer and legend spin on our wedding day. He was certainly a highlight for us and our guests. He definitely made it a night we will always remember!

Scott from Hot Mix Entertainment is a true professional. I have seen his work ethic first hand and he sets a high bar for others DJs to compare against. He is one of the few that I have seen that truly gets it, and is exactly what a discerning client should look for in an entertainer.
Scott and Hot Mix Entertainment are a pleasure to work with! They are true professionals in this industry and really treat each client special!
