Who is DJ Scotty:

This week’s featured DJ is the top DJ in Ireland!….literally, that’s right Donegal Wedding DJ – DJ Scotty comes from all the way up in Malin Head, Co, Donegal, but don’t worry he offers a nationwide service regularly travelling all over the country to create happy memories for brides and grooms.

John Hegarty (DJ Scotty), who has been a DJ for the past 17 years, has become more and more in demand for Weddings. His passion for music from all Genres and his entertaining MC style has shown his popularity in the wedding sector increase immensely. John who has been a specialist in weddings for a number of years believes that by combing nostalgic Tunes and modern classics he will keep the wedding Guests all dancing right into the wee small hours, which makes this DJ so popular.  

It’s all fun and games:

One of the many benefits that bride and grooms get when they book DJ Scotty is the unique games he can provide to really make any wedding day stand out from the rest, from traditional Mr and Mrs, interactive Mr and Mrs quiz, lip sync, dance-offs,sing-offs,bridal Band camp or even rock and roll bingo at mealtime and he even offers a bespoke package where he will introduce the wedding party at meal time, play intro music and play Ambient background music during your meal along with his trademark party games.

When asked what do you like about DJing at weddings:

“I love working weddings because I get to share in so much joy. in fact, in 2017 I gave up my job to concentrate on wedding s full time. it’s really nice to play such a big part in a day where couples choose to have this public display of commitment and love. I guess I’m just a big softy…. Weddings are so beautiful so romantic when two people are saying wonderful things about one another. I think anyone who works in the wedding sector has to connect with that. You have to have this emphatic thing and be able to connect with people and appreciate why they hired you in the first place. If I ever feel jaded or the process becomes routine, that’s when I’ll stop”
