About Scorpio Entertainment
Scorpio Entertainment was created in 2005 byEdward Daniels.
Daniels began his career in music at the age of 16 as a radio announcer for WEVA-AM86 in Emporia, VA. He transitioned to Washington, DC in 2003 to begin a career in theatre and film. As a supplement to his work as an actor-singer, he began hosting karaoke at Freddie’s Beach Bar in Arlington, VA. After producing a number of successful events in the DC nightlife scene, resulting in several features in the Washington Post, and numerous requests from bachelorette parties to perform at private events and weddings, Daniels decided to embark upon an entrepreneurial venture of his own in event production, and founded Scorpio Entertainment.
Since 2005, DJ Edward Daniels has performed at over 650 events throughout Washington, DC, as well as Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Las Vegas, and beautiful Sedona, Arizona, for clientele ranging from Ringling Brothers CEO, Ken Feld, to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. As an emcee, Daniels has announced over 175 road-races including the Air Force-Navy Half Marathon and has served as the main stage emcee and DJ, for the past seven years, at both Taste of Reston and Oktoberfest Reston, two of Northern Virginia’s largest annual food & music festivals, each boasting crowds of over 30,000 attendees.
Daniels says, “There is definitely a science and an art to what I do and how I do it. When you book with me or any of my team, you’re hiring a professional with an exceptional passion for music and event production…someone who is looking to create the most remarkable experience that you and your guests could ever fancy! There are a ton of DJs out there, but at the end of the day, after that last song has played and you’re putting your earrings and shoes back on, you can leave the dance floor thinking ‘that was good’ or ‘oh my good Jesus, that was GREAT!’ My job, our job, is to create the ‘oh my good Jesus’ effect and be great!”
Daniels holds a degree in Philosophy from the University of Virginia. He was named one DC’s Finest Young Professionals by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 2012, was a Washington Blade 2014 “Best of Gay DC, Best DJ” Finalist, and was featured as a DJ in season one, episode five, of Netflix’s House of Cards.
