Elegant Event Solutions for Angelina & Andrew 10/2/21 Omni William Penn Hotel DJ Anthony

“So much more than a DJ! I used Steven Vance for my daughter’s wedding at The Pennsylvanian in Pittsburgh on Sept 4, 2021, he came highly recommended from a co-worker of mine and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is so talented and is the utmost professional. We had him perform on the violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour which was both elegant and entertaining. He roamed the tables with his violin during dinner, taking requests from the guests at each table…so many in attendance mentioned what a special touch that was. After dinner, Steven got the party started, keeping so many dancing all night long and keeping to the brides schedule of events all night long! When I put in a last minute request from mom to the bride, he just smiled and added it to the playlist before the finale song…so professional and just an all around great pick!”
