About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I am young and relevant and know what get's people dancing, reading the crowd to keep them going. I'm not your creepy old DJ playing the chicken dance. I have a lot of fun and it reflects on the dancefloor. And I provide musical entertainment that won't break the bank, so even the broke college student can afford me! I can be easily reached anytime at djscottiemanners.weebly.com

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I have a lot of fun behind the decks creating a flow of music that keeps people dancing. If I am having a good time, it reflects to the crowd, I'm smiling and the dancefloor is too! I also enjoy making my services available to a wider range of groups without them spending a lot for a DJ, nobody can beat my pricing only at $75/hr for weddings and $50/hr for any other event! I am young, affordable, and professional with 6 years under my belt and over 140 gigs.

    Great Father-Daughter Dance
    Girls and Dads seemed to really enjoy the music and dancing. Music was clean and age-appropriate. He encouraged participation which broke the ice and got them on the dance floor.

    Great wedding DJ
    Scottie was the DJ at our wedding back in 2014. Scottie was helpful before hand getting playlist and timing locked in. But with weddings not everything runs quite on time. Scottie did a great job adjusting and keeping a smooth flow. The guests loved that he listened to their requests and took them into account. Overall very pleased.

    DJ Scottie ftw
    DJ Scottie Manners was fantastic. He has the versatility for any party (just by music knowledge/songlists) and had our kids at our high school Homecoming party asking that he does future events for the school. Great job.

    Formal dance
    DJ Scottie had DJ'ed a dance that I attended. He did an outstanding job of playing new music along with the classics. He was open to song requests and worked them in. I would recommend his services and look forward to using his services.

    Fraternity Formal
    DJ Scottie put on a great set for my fraternity's formal dance. The mix was greatly diverse from classic songs to current hits. He also was early to setup and get going. Highly encourage looking into booking Scottie if you want a reliable, exciting, and fun-filled event.

    Best DJ around
    DJ Scottie Manners is an excellent DJ. I've been to dances he performed at where he really got everyone having fun and dancing. DJ Scottie also performed at one of my parties over summer which was a blast because of him and his talents. No better DJ this side of the Mississippi, would absolutely recommend.

    Great DJ!
    DJ Scottie has worked my sorority formal/informal multiple times and everyone has always had nothing but positive things to say about the music!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
$75/Hr for Wedding Receptions $50/Hr for any other event such as corporate events, school dances, fundraisers, graduation parties, or any other type of party or get-together
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I contact them through email and get their event straightened out with details. I send a contract and a generic script for weddings as a starting point and slowly cater their event through constant communication.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
6+ years of experience in DJ'ing has taught me what a what not to do, and what works for different crowds and how to read them.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My high school dances were horrible; I wanted to change that, so I invested in equipment and 6 years later have a successful business out of it with over 140 gigs under my belt of all kinds of events.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have done themed parties where they want all Reggae, Halloween, Spanish or Persian music. I have worked with schools and corporations that hire me for a school dance, Bride and Grooms for their wedding, mothers for their son's graduation party. University planning boards for events, Greek Life for parties and events.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I traveled 3.5 hours to DJ at a school near Chicago, the dance was the best one I have ever done. The people there surprisingly wanted a lot of Bachata music and Spanish songs played. I was a hit and they are hiring me back for their dances again. over 200 students were all dancing at once.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure they don't get ripped off. Too high of a price for what they are worth is just bad business. I wouldn't recommend spending any more than you need.
