About this pro

How does your business stand out?

We genuinely care about our customers. More often than not our performances are during a very special time in someones life and we care about the results. It says on our website that this is not just a gig or a job but our passion and ministry and we really mean it. I would not want to do anything else.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love most all getting to do what I love. I get to share on special moments of peoples lives and be a part of many special events. There is nothing much better than watching a father dance with his daughter at her wedding. It is one of the most special moments in the world. That particular moment is hard for SC Party DJ not to bust out crying. I am usually am close to the dance floor and can see the father whispering to the Bride. Sometimes I wish I could hear what was being said.

    Sc party dj was amazing, the one part of the wedding that we never had to worry or stress about, he very professional and goes the extra mile to make sure the bride and groom have a great time, and have great music. If I could rate him higher I would, don't go with anyone else just go with the best, sc party dj.

    Corey kept in touch and worked to meet our specific needs. Stayed longer than contracted for to help with unexpected delay with food service.

    Corey DJ'ed my Dad's surprise party. He did a great job and was great to work with! He had really nice, very professional equipment. He read the crowd well and played very appropriate music. I would highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again.

    Excellent Work
    SC Party DJ did an absolutely FANTASTIC job with my wedding! First (and perhaps most impressive), we were expecting several inches of snow that weekend and he came out a day early to make sure he would be there for the event no matter what. It was incredibly professional, and such a relief to know that morning that he was there and ready to go as we got last-minute panicked calls from other vendors. Then, he did an absolutely AMAZING job of reading the room and keeping everyone up and dancing while still incorporating guest song requests. He made announcements for different events, introduced the wedding party, and worked with my Day of Coordinator to keep things moving smoothly. We received so many compliments from our guests – and the venue staff! – about what a great job he did. I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend SC Party DJ to anyone looking for a wedding DJ!

    Best Wedding DJ in Greenville, SC!
    Corey was an absolutely wonderful DJ. He knew exactly how to play the right songs for the right mood, at exactly the right time. I also can't thank him enough for keeping everyone on track, facilitating the events of the night smoothly, without making me feel rushed or not in control. He's a great addition to anyone's event--you will have fun, you will dance, and you'll probably get some high-quality pictures out of it as well! Thank you Corey, you were fantastic!!!

    Would re-hire again and again!
    I can't say enough good things about Corey Brown - SC Party DJ! Corey was very professional and very pleasant to work with! I was very concerned with the lack of power at our outdoor venue, but Corey was able to provide music during the ceremony and reception without any issues. He also provided a clean DJ set and fun lights. I'm a dancer and he threw a great dance party! Oh, and did I mention he also took photos - that was such a pleasant surprise! That's an example of a vendor going above and beyond - you don't always find that with vendors. Can I do it all over again, please?

    He was the DJ for my son's wedding and he did a great job! We have never hired anyone that we didn't know before and honestly we were worried. However, we were very pleased and would definitely hire him for any other events we had.

    Absolutely kept the crowd mingling all night. The music was loud but not like you couldn't hear someone talking. He's very organized, timely, and the truest professional. He's the best around.

    Corey did an amazing job. He kept everything flowing nicely without any glitches. Even when there were things going wrong, not related to the music, it didn't matter he stepped right in to help. He also stayed behind to help clean up and made sure nothing else was needed before he left. He even took some really great pictures of the event. I would highly recommend him to others in need of a great DJ

    From the get go he was very easy to work with. Had the best price for what I needed. Quick to get back with me on text messages, email or phone calls. With only a few notes on the music we wanted to have for the party, his selections were spot on. I would definitely refer him and hire him for future events.

    Corey was the DJ for my daughter's sweet 16 party. He played fun games and brought along glow sticks and selfie props. The teens loved it. He was flexible with taking song requests and was willing to MC a trivia game for me. He arrived on time and stayed until everyone was gone. We would hire him again.

    Corey came through with the absolute shortest notice possible. We were stuck without a DJ/sound or MC within one week of the wedding. I sent him the wedding schedule and playlist selection within 30 hours of the ceremony. He knocked it out of the park!!! He was able to put together a great night with the perfect mix of cultural ethnicity's and fantastic lighting for the entire reception venue. My hat goes off to him, thank you Corey!

    Corey did a fantastic job for us. He was a little higher priced on his bid; but the value was unbelievable. He made the experience more than worth it by staying extra time and not charging us for it. He truly loves and enjoys what he does!!!!

    Corey was an awesome DJ for our wedding party. He had great ideas and played just what the crowd wanted. He was willing to play all the songs I had chosen as well. He did a great job setting up his equipment so the sound was throughout our venue-even outside on the patio. Invite him to your party-you will not be disappointed.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We stay up to date through online courses.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
As a young person (around twelve years old) I used to run the sound at my church. When I sixteen I was still doing this and a friend asked me if I would run the sound for his wedding and then entertain at his reception. It was so much fun that I got addicted to doing it and eventually went pro. I love making speakers produce the best possible sound they can and a happy crowd dancing the night away!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We DJ and Emcee at Wedding Receptions / Ceremonies, Parties, reunions, Sweet 16, Prom and School Events. Charity events, Fundraisers, and corporate events within a 120 mile radius of Greenville, SC.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We recently entertained at a birthday party. It was a sweet 16 and a lot of the children who were invited did not show up. It is always more challenging with a smaller crowd. people are more self conscious and overall just less willing to participate. Since I am experienced I knew exactly what to do. We played some group games and did a lot of line dancing. Before you knew it everyone was participating and having a great time.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Customers looking to hire a provider like me should hire a professional. There are a lot of people who claim to be DJ's and have gone out and bought a couple of speakers and a computer and play music for money. They usually charge half of what the professionals charge because they have no vested interest in the outcome. They do not have a reputation to be ruined or care about the customer. We at the South Carolina Party DJ and The Wedding DJ are all about you as the customer. We want this experience to be one of the best purchases you have ever made.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What I wish customers knew about my profession is that it is incredibly expensive to own and operate a mobile DJ business. I sometimes think that others think DJ's charge too much for what they do but you must realize that we have invested tens of thousands of dollars in equipment and pay for insurance to protect the customer in case of an accident. In addition there are the expenses of constantly updating music and keeping up a website. A large portion of our budget goes to advertising. I must also mention that professional DJ's like myself have to purchase Business Licenses for every city we work in which can be quite costly in itself.
