Hot Mix was FANTASTIC! The music was exactly what we wanted. The lighting looked great and the dance floor was packed! Thank you for a perfect night. You were so easy to work with and responded quickly to all of our emails. I will highly recommend you to all of our friends.

What can I say about Scott except that he totally crushed it at our wedding and kept the dancefloor packed all night long? We had a destination Austin wedding and no DJ was good enough for our tastes except Silz so we dragged him all the way down to Texas – a choice we could not be happier with. The music was amazing, he did an insane job with the uplighting – when the lights were lowered, the place looked incredible! – and his photobooth was a highlight to us and our guests. Oliver (who manned the photobooth) was a true professional and had amazing ideas for our friends that made their excitement over picture taking even better. All we wanted at our wedding was a total party and he kept it that way all night long!

Scott is a consummate professional. From the first interaction we had to the last, Scott kept our best interests in mind. I’ve never seen a dance floor packed all night at a wedding before. Usually there are ebs and flows to people dancing, but with Scott, everybody was on the floor almost the entire time. The music he played was exactly what we had in mind, no cheesy bits, and most importantly he kept our “do not play” list in mind. He also did an amazing job with the uplighting, and it really added a beautiful ambiance to the dance floor! The one thing we told Scott when we first met him was that we wanted our guests to have a blast on the dance floor, and we could not be happier with what Scott delivered. Thank you for an unforgettable night!

We hired Hot Mix Entertainment for our wedding and Scott did an awesome job as our DJ. He was great to work with and got all the music right. The reception was a great mix and kept the dance floor packed with our friends right up to the last song of the night. We had a complete blast! Hot Mix Entertainment was definitely worth hiring!

DJ Scott is amazing. We had him do all the music entertainment at our wedding. Everyone had a great time and he kept the music rolling! Never a dull moment with Hot Mix Entertainment around! If you are considering hiring anyone else, stop right now! This is your guy! Thanks a bunch!
Rick Allay Scott Smokin Silz is always professional and his music is on point! Definitely will use Hot Mix Entertainment again!

Scott did an AMAZING job at our wedding. We met with him twice to hash out all the details. He is extremely professional and knows his stuff. He was able to help us with some musical choices too when we were stuck. We also got the up lights and photo booth from him. Everything was exceptional! Our guest are still mentioning to us that this was the first wedding they have been to where the dance floor was packed from beginning to the end of the last song played. I would recommend him to anyone.

Hot Mix Entertainment far exceeded our expectations. We knew they were great when we hired them because we saw them at a friends wedding. They were so professional and went above and beyond every step of the way. Thank you to our DJ Scott for making our night magical! Even our catering sales person commented on what a great DJ we had.

I can’t thank Scott and his team enough for making our wedding night so special. I’ve been listening to Scott Smokin Silz on the radio for years and have been to many of his parties. I’m a big Hot Mix 5 fan and our music was exactly what we wanted. We love great dance music and Scott played all my jams. The night went so fast. Keep doin’ what you do Scott!

I was really excited by the large variety of music the DJ came with. Whatever we requested was available! I was not expecting that. The DJ did an amazing job. Very professional. Arrived early to set up and everything was good to go by the time my guests arrived. He nailed my entrance. I’m really proud he was my DJ. The whole crew did an excellent job!

Scott is a great DJ. I’m so glad we went with him. He kept the crowd engaged and dancing. He kept great music playing. He really put on an amazing show. It was everything we asked for and much more. Thanks for making our night so special!

My husband and I spent a lot of time trying to find the best DJ for our wedding but after meeting Scott Silz we knew we found the right DJ. Scott is a true professional. He was very responsive and took the time to meet with us a couple of times and was very helpful. We wanted lots of people dancing and that’s exactly what we got. Our friends and family stayed right up to the last song. It was truly a special night. I’m so glad we chose Hot Mix Entertainment.

Scott did a fantastic job. He quickly caught on to the music tastes of my guests and was happy to quickly play their requests. I think everyone danced until they couldn’t dance anymore! Everyone stayed entertained and it’s due to this talented dj. Many people asked for his card. Yes, he was that good.

Scott, your talent as a DJ is only surpassed by your classiness behind the microphone. Thanks for rocking our wedding to the wee hours, EVERYONE loved the music you played and the vibe you created!

Scott is a consummate professional, we were lucky to have found him for our corporate event. He put together a killer set, incorporated our branding into his stage and photo booths and was great in responding to all my communications. We had a change in date, time and venue a few months down the line after securing his services and he rolled with that no problem. We had a last minute presentation our employees put together, the morning of the event and he confirmed he can make that work within minutes of me making the request. He helped in making sure we had the right layout for the event, worked around the stringent guidelines placed by the venue and followed through on everything he pitched when we brought him on board. He did a great job of keeping the party vibe going with a very eclectic group with varying tastes and his light show in the night was spectacular. I cannot say enough great things about Scott and his team, I would highly recommend them!

Scott was great to work with. He responded immediately to all of our emails and phone calls. Our reception was rockin’ from start to finish. He had everyone on the dance floor and kept them there. The lighting was beautiful. Our Photo Booth pictures looked great. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to hire Hot Mix Entertainment. I can’t tell you how many compliments we got about our music and DJ. We highly recommend Hot Mix and Scott!

We started shopping for our DJ 1½ years prior to our big day thinking it would be a huge undertaking because we are really picky about music. Once we met Scott it was a perfect fit! Talent, professional and everything we wanted. Our night was magnificent!

These guys are such pros! Of all of the people we hired for our wedding Hot Mix Entertainment was by far the best to work with. They were helpful, responsive and delivered. If I had to do it again Hot Mix would be on the top of my list. Thank you for contributing to the success of our reception.
Olivia
Our DJ Scott from Hot Mix. was so much fun! He was very professional and listened to what we wanted. I was even more impressed when he was able to find a couple of hard to find remixes for my husband. (he loves House Music) Scott went above and beyond and made our wedding reception a success. At first I thought they were pretty expensive, but I would pay that again for the experience we had. You need to hire Hot Mix for your wedding!

What a night in Chicago! Thank goodness we didn’t leave on our honeymoon the day after our reception – We were up all night dancing – no one wanted to leave thanks to Scott and Hot Mix Entertainment.

We planned our wedding long distance and relied on referrals from our friends in Chicago for a DJ Company. Scott and Hot Mix was it! Thrilled with the entire process and experience. Highly recommend.

My fiancee put me in charge of hiring a DJ which I thought would be a daunting task, until I met Scott. Hired him on the spot. Music was perfect and the dance floor packed all night.
Marlene M
It was a dream come true. Several friends have already asked for the name of our DJ.

The photo booth and uplighting created a great party experience. The music couldn’t have been better. Everyone danced the night away. Really special day for us, family, and friends. Thank you, Scott
Lanette B
We know Hot Mix Entreatment and Scott from Chicago and hired him to come down to Florida for our event. Hot Mix provided everything we needed for our wedding. Scott was the DJ and brought his team for our photo booth and lighting. Everything was beyond magnificent. We had the BEST time. Hot Mix was easy to work with and very flexible with our schedule.

Scott Smokin’ Silz over deliverd! We had the most amazing night. FUN! FUN! FUN! You should hire Hot Mix right now. Our friends danced all night and even my husband was on the floor loving the music. Hot Mix was wonderful!

I’m a semi-pro DJ from Chicago. I played my first record for the public in 1981. I’ve been around the block a few times, so I would consider my opinion a valid one. When the Hot Mix 5 hit the airwaves on WBMX, there were two Dj’s I would emulate, Farley Funkin’ Keith and Scott Smokin’ Silz. I recorded their mixes on cassette and listened to them over and over, What separated them from the others (In my opinion) were their music selections, timing, and blends. I’ve heard all the DJ’s perform live. and flawless is the best way I can describe Scott Smokin”Silz. I NEVER heard a bad performance from “Sensei Silz”. The Frankie Knuckles tribute mix he did on V103 was the the best mix of the night, (IMO). You cannot possibly go wrong with a company that is owned / operated by a legend. Scott B Free

We couldn’t of been happier with our DJ from Hot Mix Entertainment. The music was perfect and the dance floor was full all night long. (My feet still hurt). Thank you for making our special day perfect.

Just back from our honeymoon, I wanted to thank Scott and Hot Mix Entertainment for a wonderful evening. Could not have been happier.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Need I say more? You want a pro in the DJ industry here he is. Scott Smokin’ Silz.

Can we do it all over again? It was so much fun and went so fast. Thinking of having a 1 year wedding anniversary party and we’ll hire Scott and crew again.

Our dream wedding and reception came true. Everyone is still talking about it.

My fiance and I had the opportunity to meet and see Scott at the Field Museum. We couldn’t wait to book him. We were all about the music, the uplighting and photo booth. Our venue was completely transformed as a result of his expertise and talent. Thank you!
Thomas Donahue Hot Mix did an event for the office and we could not be more happy with the results. Very professional, everyone had a great time dancing, and a pleasure to have entertaining us at a special occasion.
Priscilla H
The moment we decided on a venue, we started looking for a wedding DJ. A girlfriend of mine recommended Hot Mix Entertainment and we are SO GLAD she did. When we took a look at Hot Mix’s music selections, we realized right away that they were way more than just the “same old wedding DJ” at our reception. Scott was incredible. Thanks Hot Mix for being more than just “DJs”, you brought the party to life!
We loved Hot Mix!!
We chose Hot Mix because of Scott. We met at his office and we were so impressed. He’s such a pro at what he does. We couldn’t have been happier with the way our wedding turned out. He took care of our ceremony, the dinner music and the dancing. He kept people on the floor and played a great selection of music. Everything was just perfect.
