High energy, very engaging with the guests! They have a great demeanour and were always smiling. We got a lot of compliments from our guests about the dj. They were very open to our requests and made great suggestions for the rest. They made our reception memorable :)
Merci Pascale et Ryan! It was a wonderful night and a fantastic celebration!

Stefan was great to work with from our first interaction with him. We lived in the U.S. so our first interview with him was over Skype, and there was an instant connection. He was so laid back, funny but still very professional and helped us a lot with determining our needs to achieve the vision we wanted for our wedding night. We have seen many great DJ's that are difficult to approach or speak to, or who are set in their ways, but Stefan was really nice and made sure that everything that was going to happen that night was to our liking. He responds immediately to emails which is always nice. We met him in person a few weeks before the wedding at his place, which felt very cozy and comfortable and it was as if we had known him for many years. Even up until the day before the wedding I changed a few songs (for example, our first dance) and he responded immediately to reassure us that he had received our request.
The night itself was a great success, everyone was dancing and having a blast, his choice of music was incredible!!
I cannot say enough good things about him, I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ as we were extremely satisfied with him and his team :)
Thank you so much Sandy and Chafic! I had a wonderful time working with you both! Congratulations once again!

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!

Thank you Julie and JP! I appreciate the kind words and attention to detail in your review! We had a fantastic celebration that night!

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.
Thank you Leo and Melissa! It was such an amazing day for sure! The way we kicked off the reception was definitely off the hook, so much energy it was amazing! Congratulations once again!

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.
Thank you Stephanie and Jayson for the kind words! We had such a great time with you and your family and friends! What a great night it was! Congratulations once again!

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!

Stefan was professional, organized, friendly and energetic from the 1st time we met him all the way throughout our wedding itself and even after as he shared his videos and photos of the event with us. Right from the beginning and all throughout the process, we felt that we were being taken care of.
His service is fully personalized and he provides excellent consulting services. From helping us plan the pacing of the events in the evening, to the music selection, to the up lighting and music selections, Stefan listened to us and provided us options and advice that fit within our preferences.
He was extremely responsive and adaptable, promptly answering our questions and confirming our last-minute changes in the weeks leading up to our event without any issue.
His setup is awesome - the up lighting really enhanced the look of our venue and the music/sound quality was amazing and capable of fulfilling every request that was made. He was in control the entire evening of our wedding: pacing the night perfectly and remaining energetic and involved in the party without being pushy. He created a perfect flow and ambiance to the event and thanks to Stefan, we were able to enjoy the evening that much more as we knew everything else was in his capable hands.
We highly recommend!!!!
Thank you so much Allison and Nick! What a great night! Congratulations once again!

We first met Stefan a year before our wedding date. He was very professional and full of ideas. He made us feel like our wedding was a unique event and not pre-packaged with recycled ideas. He took the time to get to know our personalities and what we imagined our wedding to be like. From helping us put together a timeline to making the room look absolutely amazing Uptown Xpress takes care of the details.
On the day of the wedding, Stefan and his team were full of energy and enthusiasm. It was obvious they wanted to put on a great show and they exceeded our expectations.
Our guests really loved the table games and the 90s and current hits music was the perfect mix.
Thank you for making our wedding night better than we could have ever imagined.
Jayson and Rebecca
Thank you so much Rebecca and Jayson for the review and kind words! We had an absolute blast celebrating with you! I will never forget the horse heads!! Mazel Tov!
