For over 15 years, Scott Trugman has honed his craft and specialized in the unique needs of weddings. He’s a mobile DJ and MC who primarily works in the Monterey Bay area, including Santa Cruz & San Jose. As a veteran DJ and MC, Scott not only provides an expansive, diverse, and appropriate collection of music, but also seamlessly transitions into making announcements.

If you’re interested in using Scott, he likes to begin with a short discussion of the particulars of your wedding, followed by a sit-down consultation to layout the sequence of events for your big day. This includes the mood, the key songs, special moments, announcements, and anything else he can do to make your day be exactly like you imagine it.

On your wedding day, he’ll arrive approximately an hour and a half before his official start time to set-up and test equipment, tape down wires, and check-in to see if there any last minute changes. During the event, he’ll make sure guests are informed of what is taking place next and help make sure the event stays on-track. After that comes the fun part. Scott personally takes pride in making sure everyone is having a great time on the dance floor while playing your favorite songs. Please contact Scott to discuss the details of your wedding or event.

“He kept the energy up & had everyone on the dance floor!

We’re so grateful he helped us create an amazing event.”


“Scott was amazing! He was organized and prepared, which meant the world since I was planning my wedding from a distance! He was very easy going and fun, even playing my oddly requested Disney songs. All of my guests complimented how great he was and how the dance floor was never empty. Thank you Scott! I would recommend you to any bride out there!”

“Since the first time we met Scott, we felt at ease. Scott was personable, really easy to work with, and gave great feedback about how to organize our wedding ceremony minute by minute. He was understanding of the melding of cultures at our wedding. He made the transitions seamless and everything flowed nicely, as his organization was top-notch. If we have another large event in the future we will not hesitate to work with Scott. Thank you so much for everything!!!”

“Scott was amazing. We were running behind, but it was still important for us to have the cake cutting, the garter toss, the bouquet toss, etc. Scott managed to fit it all in! He overcame all obstacles and kept us all on track. He maintained great communication throughout the entire wedding and countless guests came up and complimented his choice of songs. If I ever need another dj I would definitely hire Scott.”

“Scott was WONDERFUL!! He was very thorough, responsive and patient! I have never hired a DJ before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Part of me was afraid any DJ we hired would just do their own thing, but Scott took the time to really get a sense of who we are and what we wanted for our wedding. We have gotten so many compliments on our wedding and we owe a debt of gratitude to Scott for that.”

“I had a 50’s themed party for my 60th birthday. Scott DJ’d for me and he did a fantastic job. He took charge of his portion of my event, made announcements requested of him, and meshed so well with my guests. The music was a perfect blend of 50’s rock and roll with a little bit of contemporary mixed in. There was not enough room on the dance floor. I had a number of guests ask me for his name as they would like to hire Scott for some of their events in the future. I will definitely hire Scott again!”

“My guests danced non-stop and loved your choice of music.

 Thanks Scott, for an absolutely wonderful evening!”

Profile3-300x300DJ’ing was a natural and inevitable occupation for me. At ten years old I was making “cassette tape mixes” of my favorite songs. Eventually I became the de facto dj at friends’ house parties, and, after stepping up at my brother’s wedding to be his unofficial dj, I knew this was more than a hobby. For more than a a decade I’ve worked as a professional mobile dj/mc in the Santa Cruz / San Jose / Monterey area, providing music, ambiance, and positive energy to countless events, specializing in weddings.

Recently, I branched off from the large DJ Service I’d been working at to start my own dj business. This allows me to deliver the same high quality service at a more affordable price. By running my own business, I get to spend more time getting to know my clients and offer better service and value.

Please contact me for a free consultation in order to discuss the specifics of your event and pricing. I recognize and appreciate that every event is special and unique, and as such, I want to make sure that we are a good fit–that I am right for your needs. I don’t see myself as merely a vendor delivering a service, but rather a partner fully invested in the success of your special occasion. I look forward to meeting you!


“Scott is a fantastic DJ & wonderful person to work with

He was the icing on our wedding cake, & our guests thought so too!”
