The Details

Hi! My name is Stephen Darby and I want to DJ your wedding. Everything you are about to see here and on my website is from over 700 weddings I have been apart of in the last 8 years. I have spent my whole life perfecting what I do and I would love to share it with you. I have been entertaining audiences of all sizes, all over the country, for over a decade. As a classical pianist from the College of Charleston, I have found my niche in incorporating live piano instrumentation while DJing. I've been fortunate enough to play and perform for crowds in the tens of thousands next to the world's top internationally ranked DJs and musicians, including Tiesto, "party-rockers" LMFAO and many many others. I now focus solely on wedding entertainment and use my piano while DJing to create everything from acoustic piano mixes during dinner to my favorite dance floor mixes when its time to get down. I love to mix and match instrumentals, acapellas, live piano, and original classics from all different eras and genres of music. My unique approach to wedding entertainment has given me the opportunity to perform for numerous celebrities as well as wedding planners all over the country getting married themselves. I'd love to show you more!

Steven Darby is very talented and loves what he does. Check out his website and you can see how he mashes up music while playing his piano. He was able to keep the party dancing and have fun all night. There was never a dull moment or a song we didn't recognize. He interacted very well with all our guests.

If you choose to go the DJ route you HAVE to pick Stephen Darby. We hit the dance floor at the beginning of the evening and didn't leave until the last song was played. We received so many compliments from our guests on how amazing the atmosphere and music was and how much fun they had dancing all night long.

Stephen was amazing! He is a great DJ and very talented combining those skills with his piano skills. He made us feel at ease even though we found out 2 days before the wedding he would be our DJ! The music all flowed nicely and he has great energy. Would highly recommend him!

Music is such an important part of the wedding. We knew we wanted to hire an amazing DJ for our wedding and being from out of town we relied on reviews to pick ours. We hit the jackpot with Stephen! When we saw that he does mashups using the piano we knew he was unique and different from other DJs. Stephen was so easy to work with and he knows how to create the most amazing beats ever! The crowd loved him and everyone was on the dance floor for the whole night. Many of our guests kept saying he was the best DJ they had ever seen! He is not just a DJ he is extremely talented and puts on a performance. He is truly one of a kind and you can just tell he throughly loves what he does. He also did some cool uplighting around the venue and the spanish moss looked amazing. We are so happy we chose Stephen and know you will be too! Cheers! Jenn and Jason

Stephen Darby was hands down the best wedding DJ we have ever experienced! And although we are biased, many of our guests said the same. He really read the crowd and kept the dance floor hopping all night. He also did the music for our ceremony which despite me sending him random clips I found on YouTube for the songs I wanted (instrumental versions of Beatles songs), the versions he played sounded as if they were recorded in a state of the art studio. He was absolutely amazing and so much fun to work with!

Stephen Darby and the EPIC team are truly incredible at what they do…EPICly amazing actually (if I may try my hand at being punny). Stephen was the DJ for our wedding on October 18, 2014 at Pepper Pavilion and also provided uplighting for our reception. There aren’t enough words to describe the phenomenal job he did. The music selection was absolutely perfect, exactly what we requested actually. And his talent on the keyboard, mashing up songs live in-person really showed through to all of our guests. Everyone was on the dance floor at some point or another, and we haven’t stopped hearing from our guests how much they enjoyed the music. When my husband and I think back to what we envisioned the music scene being like for our wedding, Stephen Darby nailed it with flawless execution. I recommend Stephen to EVERY single bride who is looking for a DJ that can provide a fun, professional, relaxed, entertaining, exciting, engaging, and memorable reception. He is so easy to work with, and isn’t gimmick-y at all, like we expected most DJs to be. He is down to earth and knows how to get the job done. Stephen, we can’t thank you enough.

We loved the DJ. He was able to recognize when songs were working and when they were not and feel the mood of the crowd. We had everyone dancing and having a blast while keeping it clean and fun. He was doing such a fantastic job that we didn't realize that he was mixing his own music as he played it!
