We decided to meet with Stefan after researching DJs. He was always coming up in best of lists and well reviewed. After meeting with him for the first time, it was an easy choice. He's organized, focused and very attentive to his customers' needs. His MC skills made the night and all our guests raved about him. The music was exactly what we wanted and followed the natural flow of the night from classy sit down dinner to all-out party! His energy and engagement keep us and our guests going well into the night until the hall shut us down. We couldn't recommend highly enough!

We were looking for a fluent English language speaker, without any thick, informal accent for a classy wedding venue.

We had an excellent experience working with Stef from Uptown Express!!

Stef is a seasoned DJ who takes a lot of pride in his work, and enjoys what he does.

He is professional, organized, punctual, and a very pleasant to work with. He always has a great smile on his face and is highly customer focused.

We are very precise, analytical, and thorough people who pay attention to detail. Stef was able to deal with us, and handle all our questions in a calm, patient and friendly manner.

We looked into many different vendors including larger companies, and either found them too flamboyant, not fluent enough with the English language, or wanting to display their advertising logo on their DJ booth throughout our ceremony.

Selecting the right DJ is a critical part of the success for the flow, and timing of your special day.

He has the ability to read the crowd and keep the party going, and will work auto pilot from setup to tear down without taking up any of your time during the wedding day.

DJ Stef will not only just play the music… He is a specialist with a pleasant, humble nature who will work with all your vendors to ensure your day runs smoothly. His DJ booth is very nice looking with white padded leather which adds a touch of class to the evening. Despite not being a large vendor, he has all the latest DJ equipment, speakers, and lighting options for you to choose from.

If you are fortunate to book him for your special day you will be very happy you did!

We interviewed several DJ before choosing Stefan. He was by far the most prepared for the interview. Stefan put us at ease and gained our trust immediately with his knowledge of event planning. Throughout the wedding planning process, Stefan was very responsive to our inquiries and showed professionalism in every aspect of his work. Finally on the wedding night, the Uptown team knew how to get people dancing and there was never a dull moment. We would recommend Uptown to anyone looking for a DJ.

Stefan Jez (Uptown Xpress) was fantastic! We had a fantastic time at our wedding reception, and importantly, so did all of our guests. At our reception, we saw some people on the dance floor who had previously never stepped near one at past family events, and I know that was in large part thanks to the music that Stefan played and the atmosphere that he helped to create. Our reception was tailored exactly to our personalities, and reflected exactly what we had asked for. A bit more calm during the dinner portion of the evening, followed by a great party… we couldn't have been happier. Uptown Xpress got rave reviews from our guests. What amazes me is that in all of the pictures I have seen of our wedding, everyone is smiling! People in the background, people chatting at tables, and of course, people on the dance floor. And the pictures that were posted on twitter and Facebook... amazing!!! When planning our wedding, it was very important to us that our guests have a good time, and I think that they had a blast! There were great moments on the dance floor that Jay & I will cherish for a long time. We will recommend your services in a heartbeat, and will definitely turn to you the next time we’re planning an event.

Do you even need to read this review? Look at his rating.

In short, Stefan and his team are THE definition of a 5 star service.

If you need to hear more, here is the "in long":

From the moment I met Stefan at a bridal expo back in early 2013, I knew I wanted Uptown Xpress as the DJ for our wedding in May 2015. He was friendly, open, flexible, and gave off a great vibe right away. We met Stefan (hubby had never met him) and the meeting went smoothly. Stefan is very professional and went above and beyond to explain his services and go over any of our concerns. Shortly after, we signed with Uptown Xpress and take my word for it when I say that the things we saw in Stefan early on did not change as the wedding date got closer. He remained helpful, open, flexible, kind, and responsive right up until the end of our wedding day.

We had a lot of trouble with some of our other vendors and Stefan was with us every step of the way to help us with recommendations and positivity. Our final meeting with Stefan a couple weeks before the wedding day was the BEST thing that happened during our entire planning process. In 1.5 hours, he managed to put our minds at ease - we literally left his home feeling like we had had a spa day with massages.

Stefan has excellent Emcee-ing skills, his team and himself are keen on making your wedding night the sort of party you want it to be and the sort of party your guests will rave about. Xander was a great addition to the team for the night - good DJ, nice person, got things done.

I saw people in our families dance that have NEVER danced or danced significantly less at other weddings and functions. We had made music playlists and Stefan worked with them to have the songs we wanted to hear playing and the guests kept perking up each time one of their requests came on. It made for a wonderful evening.

Thank you so much Stefan and the Uptown Xpress team! You helped make our wedding day awesome!
