DJ Ben was awesome! Had a very last minute need for a DJ, Scott Topper and DJ Ben delivered...would highly recommend.Read More
We know Scott from other local events we have attended and so we asked him to DJ my 60th birthday bash this past Saturday. Scott has DJ Ben run the party and we enjoyed every minute of it! He was professional to work with and he really knew how to keep the crowd grooving. Everyone loved the music he was playing which was perfect, and it brought the wild side out of everyone at the party. Overall, DJ Ben definitely helped make this birthday a memorable one and I would hire him again for another major event. Thank you, Scott and DJ Ben!Read More
My husband and I got married a year ago at the Fess Parker in Santa Barbara, and DJ Ben was our MC and DJ. He was wonderful! I'm sure we drove him nuts, because my husband and I both had crazy work schedules at the time, and weren't always as responsive as we should have been, but throughout the entire process he was patient, respectful, and genuinely excited for us. We asked for some obscure songs and had a few nontraditional aspects to our ceremony, but Ben was on top of it. Not only did he find everything we asked for, but he chose beautiful, complimentary choices for the times in between main events, and really seemed to understand my husband's and my style and aesthetic. We would definitely recommend Ben and would definitely choose him if we had to do it all over again. In all honesty, he was brilliant, professional, fun, and the best vendor we hired. He truly kept the timing of our wedding, and I am certain everything went as smoothly as it did because of him. Even our guests commented about what a great DJ & MC he was. Thank you, Ben!Read More
Scott was so great, I can't recommend him enough. He created such an awesome party vibe for our reception - everyone danced until the very last minute. He was very attentive to our requests, which was incredible because my family is Indian and he went out of his way to find fifty or so Indian songs to play during dinner/cocktail hour. We also had a Hindu ceremony which required very specific music and timing, and Scott handled it perfectly!! Everyone was very impressed with Scott. Besides that, he's just a lot of fun. We met with Scott twice before the wedding, and he was so much fun to work with. He's a genuinely kind and helpful guy. At the reception, he created such a good vibe. I've been to weddings where the DJ is very detached and boring - not so with Scott. He was partying with us and I was so sad when the reception had to end. Book him!Read More
DJ Scott Topper was so fun at our wedding! We're both half Jewish and decided to do a Hora, and I really appreciated that he walked the guests through the whole process since a lot of them are not Jewish and have maybe never been part of one before. It was a big hit! He also extended two hours beyond what we booked him for super last minute, and I'm so glad that we did that! He was great to work with.Read More
Scott and DJ David really rocked the party in Ojai. Our wedding dance floor was packed the entire night. And DJ David even played a few extra songs for us because people would not stop dancing. Scott was so cool and easy to communicate with, and even installed the dance floor himself. Booking through Scott was seriously the easiest part of the wedding planning and the music ended up being one of the best parts of the whole night. I highly recommend Scott for any DJ needs.Read More
Scott Topper was the DJ for my wedding two weeks ago, and it was beyond perfect! He was so friendly and easy to communicate with, and our guests RAVED about the music. The dance floor was packed all night, and everything ran according to plan. I would HIGHLY recommend Scott Topper for any event you need a DJ for!Read More
Was very professional to work with and is GREAT at the service he provides--made for a enjoyable event! Would definitely use Scott Topper Productions in the future!!Read More
Scott was the DJ for our wedding this July of 2016 in Ojai. He was absolutely fabulous. We actually ended up finding him at the very last minute--just weeks before the wedding--and he was quick to respond and flexible in making sure that the wedding would be exactly as we wanted it. The evening of the wedding not only did Scott arrive early to set up and make sure everything was organized and ready to go, but during the event he really stepped up. We didn't have a wedding coordinator, and so he made sure to check in consistently with our other vendors and family members to coordinate the whole evening and make sure that it ran as smoothly as possible--and we didn't have to worry about a thing! The music was perfect; our guests all had a blast and commented on how fun and nice Scott was. We would hire him again without ANY hesitation. He is a huge asset to any wedding! Thank you, Scott!Read More
My wife and I are from Philadelphia and we wanted to celebrate our wedding down in Santa Barbara. My wife researched for the best DJs in Santa Barbara and found Scott's show "It's Show Time!" and immediately decided that he was the one! When we booked Scott Topper as our DJ we didn't know how popular he was since he was very humble about it. Our wedding coordinator and our venue mentioned how good he was after they learned he was our DJ. When we met him for our first meeting he was very professional and friendly and he also revealed to that he was initially from Philly too! It was great to learn his history and also helped us learn how far his experience DJ-ing has taken him. We definitely felt very comfortable with him immediately,. He gave us a easy to follow and adaptable outline and he walked us through the process of how we can piece up our song selections per main events of the wedding and how he can adapt the flow of music selection depending on the schedule. It was easy to correspond through email and he was able to answer any questions asked by us or our coordinator. On the day of the wedding, he was awesome, all the music choices went perfectly well together and he was great as the MC too. He was able to work very well with our coordinator on keeping to the schedule. When guests requested songs during the dance section he was respectful enough to come to me and my wife to see if we were OK to push a song into the selection. Overall, it was a great experience having Scott Topper as our DJ and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best DJ around!Read More
Scott was our MC/ DJ for our wedding 5/14/16 at Circle Bar B, just north of Santa Barbara. Our wedding was a total DREAM and this is in large part due to the amazing services provided by Scott and his team. We booked Scott for MC/ DJ, up-lighting, and a photo booth. Scott was extremely organized and responsive throughout the entire planning process. Scott provided outlines and checklists to help us get our music selection just right. We had several pre-event phone calls with Scott where we discussed timing, vibe and objectives.
During one of our phone conversations with Scott, he happened to notice a couple missing items on our agenda, and was able to make some valuable suggestions and contributions that ultimately made our wedding run smoothly and efficiently. The day before our wedding we decided to move the location of the ceremony and the dance floor. Scott showed up on our wedding day without any knowledge of the changes we had made, and without missing a beat, was able to re-calibrate his layout and get his equipment set up with out any issue and zero concerns. Scott's relaxed and professional attitude were much appreciated!
During the event, Scott and his staff were attentive and courteous. The music, lighting, and photo booth was exactly what we wanted, and he graciously kept us on task according to our event timeline. Since Scott is a seasoned event professional we were confident that he would do a great job working our wedding day event, but what Scott brought to the table far exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend Scott Topper to anyone in the Santa Barbara area who is interested in having their event be well executed and fun!
Scott was the DJ for our daughter's wedding June 30th. He's got a great energy and personality. He made it easy from the start by giving the bride and groom a list of potential songs they might want. They were listed in categories to simplify their choices.
He is charismatic and can really read the crowd. The dance floor was full on night.
When the party was coming to an end, and the last song was played the crowd starting chanting, Scott, Scott, Scott... No one wanted it to end.
We would recommend Scott Topper Productions for any event or party.
He looks and is professional in every way.
And is a joy to work with.
DJ Scott Topper was AMAZING! As soon as I contacted him for our wedding he was so organized and made it so easy for me (bride). I really wanted our wedding to be perfect with the music and had a lot of specific requests and Scott Topper and his team went above and beyond. The music was PERFECT and they did an amazing job. I got so many compliments about our music after our wedding. THANK YOU so much Scott ad your team!Read More
We hired STP for both the Action Photo Booths and for Music/DJ for my mother's birthday party. He was fantastic and easy to work with. Everyone absolutely enjoyed the photo booths, and moved tables to make an impromptu dance floor. He and his team arrived early, were ready to go when we were, and were absolutely professional the entire time. We would definitely hire Scott and his team again!Read More
Scott, we can't thank you enough for providing such a fun atmosphere for our Villa Verano wedding. The music was perfect and everyone enjoyed the vibe of the entire evening. We appreciate your flexibility with planning the perfect musical setting without specific ideas. You have an amazing ability to know exactly what specific music fits the mood even though we provided little guidance. Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had at the wedding. For anyone looking for an amazing DJ who will execute your vision perfectly and works seamlessly with all other vendors, we recommend Scott. He is professional but always kept the process fun and guided us every step of the way. Thank you for everything!Read More
I am the event coordinator for Lions Park in Carpinteria and booked Scott for our Open House. He was AMAZING. Showed up early to set up, extremely nice and professional, and knew exactly what mood I was looking to create and did an amazing job. He added gorgeous uplighting in our lodge as well! I can't recommend his services enough. He's awesome!Read More
I was the wedding coordinator for a wedding that Scott DJ'd. Scott easily earned a 5 star rating! He was also responsive during the pre-wedding coordinator, always answered emails promptly and answered all questions we had. The day of he showed up EARLY, which I love. Had everything set up and time and ready to go. Everything went very smoothly and I would definitely recommend Scott to any other clients. People don't realize how important DJ's are at a wedding because once the reception starts, they run the show. If they don't have their act together, the reception will fall apart. Scott came ready with his timeline and run of show, keeping the event smooth, on time, and so fun!!Read More
Scott was so awesome! He was our DJ for our Awards Ceremony and Dinner for Yardi Systems. We were scrambling last minute for a huge star wars themed event and we didn't even have a chance to go through a dry run of a huge star wars production with actors and sound effect and star wars music. Scott did his research and was able to improvise on the fly and make it a fantastic event. He truly wowed everyone. Highly suggest Scott for corporate AND social events.
Thank you again Scott!
Scott was super friendly and fun to work with! He took our suggestions and also read the crowd for the next song that he would play. He was also very very accommodating when the weather took an unexpected turn and we had to move the part inside! He's a professional and it shows! Everybody was very happy and had a blast at our wedding.Read More
This review is long overdue, but I wanted to follow through and make sure this company gets the kudos it deserves. Our wedding was in September of 2014.
We got Scott's name from a very close family friend. He had been the DJ at their wedding and since we were looking for a DJ for our wedding, we were shopping around.
Scott was so helpful and was able to work with our budget. He constantly stayed in touch with me and was so understanding and patient with me when I was trying to work out the order of the wedding, cocktail hour, reception, etc.
Scott had another party that he was already DJ-ing on the day of our wedding, so he arranged for us to have DJ Katie. We were a little unsure about having a female as a DJ, as neither of us had ever attended an event with a female DJ. We saw a few videos of Katie at work and felt good about having her at our wedding. We were, however, pleasantly surprised at how well Katie handled it all. She was absolutely wonderful and EVERYONE enjoyed themselves immensely. She controlled the evening and made everything run so smoothly.
We were happy with all of it and we received so many compliments from our guests.
One aspect that really made the whole evening stand out from other weddings was having the party song before dinner was served. Have never been to a wedding that had dancing before dinner and it was awesome. Everyone was on the dance floor and it was so unexpected and enjoyed by all. Guests still tell me that was one of their favorite parts of the reception and I have to agree.
I learned many things while planning our wedding, but one thing I was taught was that you want to make sure you spend the money to get a great photographer and a great DJ. There are other areas where you can be more budget-conscious, but those two are the ones that you'll regret if you don't spend the money for outstanding quality. I wholeheartedly agree with this. Scott Topper Productions and DJ Katie were worth every penny. The DJ sets the tone for the WHOLE reception and Katie made ours memorable--a night we will remember forever.
We highly recommend this company!!!Read More
