Scott did an excellent job as our wedding DJ!!! He was very organized and exceeded our expectations in every way! I highly recommend him as a Wedding Dj. If you are looking for a very reliable person and one that knows his stuff....Scott is your guy!
Kira P. November 13, 2017
Scott was absolutely fantastic! You can’t get anybody better then this. Scott is incredibly accessible (which I found to be invaluable!) and ready to make your day perfect. He’s an incredibly easy person to talk to and was willing to work with us on everything. We had several last minute changes/updates (including the day of the wedding!) and Scott took everything in stride with no issue. He was amazing at feeling out the crowd and keeping everyone out on the dance floor with a great mix of ballads and fun songs. Thank you Scott for being everything we hoped for and more! I will definitely recommend you for any and all DJ needs!
Chelsea M. October 24, 2017
Would recommend him to anyone! Scott was awesome and he kept the dance floor full all night long. We would highly recommend him to everyone!!

My name is John Nolan, Jr. I'm with K&J Event Planner, LLC in Baltimore, Maryland. Working with Avalanche Sound & Lighting, far exceeded my expectations. What can I say, DJ Scott Ely his style and skills crosses all ethnicities. DJ Scott would be an asset to any event requiring audio, music, up lighting and your gobo. He made doing this wedding out of town in Rocky Mount, North Carolina a awesome experience for K&J Event Planners as well as our bride and groom. Can't wait to work with Avalanche Sound &Lights again now that I know he'll travel. Professionalism at its best. Thanks!

I found Scott through our venue (Southern Charm Wedding); the owners Tim and Michelle highly recommended him for a great time. Scott sends prompt and professional e-mails with direct and simple answers to your questions and concerns. I opted to have Scott and the rehearsal and was there before I was setting up to practice and even for the next day. On the wedding day his song selection was perfect! Everyone was on the dance floor and just when you think you're tired and want to sit down he will play a song that makes you forget that and keep dancing and having a great time. I cannot thank Scott enough for all the fun and hilarious moments that occurred having him as our wedding DJ. You will not be disappointed booking with Scott he is great at what he does and will make sure everyone has an amazing time. - Zachary and Ashley Ellis

Do you want someone who will work with you and make your special day or event an awesome occasion? Then you need to go with Avalanche Sound and Lights. Scott was perfect and on point the whole time- professional on time and the easiest part of our wedding. The work he puts in for you is defiantly worth the price and he walked us through all the steps to ensure we got what we wanted. Don't miss this guy he is the pro and does the work to prove it!
Abigail V. June 18, 2017
Oh my gosh Scott is absolutely amazing!!! He was there for us every step of the way during wedding planning. Between his punctuality and his amazing personality, he is so easy to work with! He was at the venue almost 12 hours before the ceremony to set up! He made sure that everything ran smoothly and made sure that we had an amazing time!! The music he played made it such a fun environment! I would recommend Scott to absolutely ANYONE who is looking for an amazing party atmosphere at their wedding!
Monica P. June 17, 2017
We had a wide range of ages at our reception, and Scott kept the dance floor going the entire night! He got everybody out on the floor for the last song and everybody was begging for one more song. He was a fantastic DJ and if there was a rating above excellent, he would get it!
Jaimie M. June 6, 2017
If the rating had 100 stars I would give Scott all 100. My fiance and I had a wonderful experience from Scott. Attentive to all our wants and desires for our wedding as well as being prompt to respond quickly all impressed me at first. The further along in the process I was just more and more impressed with his professionalism and dedication to doing not just his job but the best job! He was the first one to arrive on my wedding day and the last one to leave...I cannot believe I was blessed to find such a gem for such a reasonable price. Scott, Jason and I cannot thank you enough for making our day everything we wanted it to be!
Tabitha M. May 25, 2017
My husband and I had a great time working with Scott. We had a few issues with miscommunication in the beginning and some missed emails, but nothing serious that couldn't be fixed with a quick message. We had a very small wedding and I was nervous people wouldn't want to get out on the dance floor, but Scott read the atmosphere in the room and got everyone on their feet! It was a great time!!
Samantha H. May 12, 2017
We hired Scott to be the DJ at our wedding. Upon meeting with Scott in person the first time, it was clear that he is very organized. He laid out everything we could possibly have up front, along with everything he needed from us. As with normal weddings, things didn't go exactly as planned throughout the evening, and Scott quickly adapted to all of the timeline changes which had to be made. When it came time for dancing, he played great songs that kept the party going. Throughout the entire planning process with Scott, he was very easy to work with. He is nice person and works hard to ensure that all the requested songs are worked into the evening. We had Go The Distances from the movie Hercules as our graduation song for elementary and high school, and Scott played it as our exit song. We honestly had no idea how to fit it in, and had completely forgotten about it the day of, when it began playing when we exited the reception hall. This made the wrap up to our wedding so magical and perfect.
Thomas Q. May 4, 2017
Scott did great as our DJ for my wedding and rehearsal. He did an amazing job guiding us through each part of our very detailed timeline, played all of the music that we wanted, and kept people dancing until the last second of the wedding reception. Guys, don't let this DJ split through your fingers, by far one of the best!
Dahl S. April 13, 2017
Scott DJ'ed for our wedding. He did such a great job! He played songs we asked him too, and he saw what the people dancing liked and kept it going! We would use him again and recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ!
Elizabeth H. March 11, 2017
Absolutely excellent service from Scott. He made the night flow so well and everyone was moving and grooving until we closed the place down.... Would def hire again!
Chryschia C. December 20, 2016
DJ Scott is one of the most DEDICATED, organized and professional vendors we've ever worked with for our 12/10/16 wedding. He's been so patient with us in getting him everything he needed to ensure we had a wonderful time at our wedding. Planning a wedding could be very time consuming but he was very understanding when we missed deadlines and he was very patient too. He offered us suggestions and did his thing at the wedding. We are so glad we let him do his thing because along with our guests, I too, lost 20 lbs just dancing the night away. I literally danced the entire reception! He kept all of our guests moving and shaking for sure and everyone hated it when our reception ended. If you want a wedding reception full of great music that caters to various age groups, DJ Scott is the man for you- he knows how to get every one from every age moving! Simply put, this man is THE BEST! Thank you so very much for making our wedding a special day to remember, Scott. We still have everyone talking about how they loved dancing the night away with us. We'll be sure to use you again for our future events- maybe a dance marathon next? ;)
David A. November 7, 2016
Scott, with all his professional sound and lighting equipment made our wedding event an awesome night to remember. From the very first song, our guests were on the dance floor. Scott knew how to keep the night festive and jumping. Besides his handling of the evening's entertainment, Scott made himself available for our rehearsal as well as to anyone that needed a hand with getting the venue ready for our guests. Scott showed up early and stayed until the last dancer dropped. Scott, from the Mother and Father of the bride, we say "Thank You" for making this night so perfect for Chad and Kaitlyn. Blessings to you my friend.
Sarah C. November 5, 2016
Highly professional. Helped to ensure that there was a set timeline for my wedding day. He was very flexible with last minute requests. Kept the party going all night!
Lisa A. October 25, 2016
Professional in every sense of the word. Highly recommended.
Susan D.October 10, 2016
Scott did a marvelous job from the beginning in the planning stage to the day of the event. We used his services for a wedding reception even though hurricane Matthew came thru we had a great time. Scott adapted well to the situation sped up the timeline but everyone had a great time. Scott is professional as well as personable compassionate person. Job well done.
KRISTINA H. September 27, 2016
I gave 5 stars because we couldn't give him 50! This is one of the best DJs in the Carolinas! My husband and I got married yesterday on the 26th. Scott not only did the reception, but he also did the ceremony! It was the best wedding I could have ever imagined! The music was on point, very courteous that we had little ones there, and played anything that we requested! He made our wedding the greatest moment ever! He even kept up with us during all the planning and made sure we were staying on track and that everything was falling in place! If you truly want a great DJ, I highly recommend him! When my best friend gets married, I already know he is going to be hired! Thank you again for the greatest day ever!
Yujin C. August 25, 2016
Scott was very involved and made sure to research to make sure our day would go well. He visited the venue on his own and also looked in to the electricity aspect to make sure we don't blow a fuse and have a blackout or something. He's very on top of things and will contact you both via email and phone via text as necessary. He was great. His music genre was great and I had lots of good feedback on how it was one of the best weddings my friends had been to. Definitely, was unsure if the dance floor would be utilized, but to my surprise and pleasure it was occupied like 90% of the time and everyone just kept on going despite the humidity. Definitely appreciated his musical taste. He came early to set up and make sure audio would not be an issue.
Melissa F. August 13, 2016
Scott was an amazing DJ. We hired him for my daughters wedding last week and were so pleased! He's very professional, organized and prompt. We danced all night! Highly recommend him!
Kaitlyn L. August 9, 2016
Scott was wonderful!!! He was so organized when we were getting ready for the wedding and had quite a bit to offer to us for the amount we paid. He was so kind when I threw last minute requests his way. He showed up super early to set up and even helped set up some extra details that required his assistance. He knew just what to play and when to play it to keep the wedding reception running smooth and made the night super fun! I would absolutely hire him again for any DJ needs I come across! Thank you Scott!!
Justin L. August 1, 2016
Awesome DJ!! Was set up and ready to go in a timely manner and made sure that there was never a dull moment!! Would certainly book again!!
Chris W. July 25, 2016
Scott was wonderful! He was extremely professional and helpful with every aspect of the wedding. He stayed in contact with us throughout the entire process and gave us a detailed timeline of what we could expect. He arrived early on the day of with high end equipment to set up. The lights and music were phenomenal! Our dance floor was packed with people from start to finish. He truly made our wedding a party to remember. We still have friends and family calling us to tell us how much fun they had. The decision to hire Avalanche Sound & Lights was the best decision of our wedding!
Chelsie P. July 13, 2016
I want to start by saying Scott was amazing. After finding Scott on Thumbtack we hired him for our wedding DJ, both ceremony and reception, and he helped make our day perfect. He is very easy going & laid back which makes him a great person to talk to. Scott was interested in what YOU wanted to hear and the overall vision you have for your wedding day soundtrack. My husband and I, including our families, couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. My wedding guests even gave us two thumbs up for the quality of music and sound, and for his amazing light set up. Let's not forget that the price of a wedding these days can be ridiculous, but Scott was the most reasonable priced DJ we found and we are happy we found him. Scott was simply awesome and I would recommend him to anyone. Scott...thank you so much!
Nancy P. May 17, 2016
Scott did a wonderful job for us. I would recommend him highly.
Stacey C. March 20, 2016
If you are looking for a DJ, look no further! My wife and I hired Scott to DJ our wedding and we could not have been happier. He goes above and beyond and truly cares about making your day as special as possible. The music for our outdoor wedding and cocktail hour sounded amazing! Scott also set the perfect ambiance for our reception dinner. When all of the dinnerware was finally put away, there was not an empty spot on the dance floor! Scott made sure that our night went flawlessly and kept our guest entertained all night. I would/do highly recommend Scott for ANY events that you may need a DJ. Scott, you are truly a master of your craft. Thank you so much for helping make our weekend so very special.
Eric G. March 15, 2016
I hired Avalanche Sound & Lights as my wedding DJ in the summer of 2015. He was very organized and respectful. He was very flexible with where my wife and the wedding planner wanted the sound equipment. All the equipment looked very professional. All the mics ran smooth. The music sounded great. He kept everyone on the dance floor and we had a great time. No issues and no hiccups. Scott knows what he is doing and has been doing it for years. I definitely recommend not just for weddings but for any event needing a DJ.
Lauren H. January 12, 2016
He was fantastic! Really got the crowd engaged!! Very professional!!
Michael R. December 31, 2015
DJ Scott Ely is utterly amazing! He worked our wedding reception and definitely made the night even more memorable. He set up his equipment early, he was on time, and his skill and ability to read the crowd had everyone up dancing and having a great time. He provides his own lights, microphones, etc. Anything you could ever need for an event. This is definitely the person to go with.
Gay L. December 13, 2015
Scott's set up was fantastic! The sound and especially the lights added so much to the party! He has a huge selection of music to suit everyone. Perfect!
Monica C. November 8, 2015
It's been over two weeks since my wedding and I'm still hearing compliments about Scott's DJing services. Guests were dancing the ENTIRE night of my wedding. My photographer even took note, saying that it had been a while since she's seen such a fun party at a wedding. Scott has an uncanny ability to pick up on the vibe and flow of an event. When he sees people jump on the dance floor, he knows exactly what to play when. My fiance and I gave Scott a list of our desired songs, but on the wedding day, my fiance thought it would be a good idea to have Scott chuck our list and just play popular songs and whatever Scott thought was best. That was a very good decision on our part because Scott really worked the crowd. In addition, I wanted Scott to play a list of Persian songs (because I'm half Persian) and he easily accommodated my request. I was surprised to see my American friends dancing to the Persian songs too! Scott is also extremely well-organized and will put together a detailed timeline of events for your wedding day and go over all the details with you. I must say that his timeline was much better than the one my wedding coordinator created so we based much of my wedding coordination plans off his timeline. I'll also add that if you're worried or concerned about your wedding coordinator (which was my case) or choose not to have one, it's a good idea to go with Scott for your DJing because he's pretty good about staying on top of what needs to happen when and letting the crowd know what they're supposed to be doing as well. On top of his outstanding services, Scott is a really really nice guy and he really loves his job. Price-wise, he was much more affordable than many of the other DJs I found, which was awesome. I can't be happier that I chose Scott to DJ my wedding.
Victoria W. October 19, 2015
Scott went above and beyond. We had rain on our wedding day and luckily Scott was there with his tents to set up an area for us to walk into the ceremony. Not only that he was completely on top of everything and very professional and organized. He was prompt. He played great music and everyone had the best time all thanks to Scott. I ABSOLUTELY will be recommending him to everyone I know! Thanks for everything Scott!!!
Mr. and Mrs. Rushin :)

Scott Ely was the DJ for my daughter's wedding reception and dinner at Benvenue Country Club in Rocky Mount on July 13, 2015. To say that my wife and I were very pleased with his service would be a gross understatement. Even though we gave him very little planning time (due to our own lack of planning), he exceeded our expectations. He was on time, brought excellent equipment, played the music we requested, and stayed late. All our interactions and communications with him were very professional, and conveyed to us the sense that he took his job seriously, all while being very flexible. Most importantly, he displayed a fairly extensive knowledge of music, which is not a small feat when considering the tens of thousands of songs that have been recorded in the last fifty years. Some of the songs we requested were for the grandparents of the bride and groom. If he didn't know a particular song, he went looking for it and found it. We cannot imagine having hired a nicer, more accommodating, and more conscientious person to add the final touches to a beautiful day for our daughter and her husband.
Bill K. June 19, 2015
Scott did an excellent job DJing our wedding! He was extremely well organized, guided us through song selection and has great attention to detail. He played the particular songs we requested and filled in the rest to keep the party dancing all night. Scott made it easy for us, and it was a relief on our wedding day knowing Scott could handle anything. Hire Scott and know it will be one less thing for you worry about!
Lydia N. June 19, 2015
Amazing DJ! Really truly listened to what I wanted and really went with the flow! Highly recommend!
David M. June 7, 2015
Scott did an amazing job DJing our wedding on June 6th. He communicated constantly with us prior to our event and ensured that everyone had a great time. If your choice is between Scott and anyone else choose Scott. You won't be sorry.
Kimberly J. June 3, 2015
Scott was FANTASTIC! Very friendly and helpful for our small event! Would use him again in a heartbeat!
