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!

It was a pleasure to work with Uptown express to plan our wedding reception. They are not only personable but very professional and knowledgeable. They were great at touching base with you for appointment's and staying on track with the planning during a very busy year of wedding planning. They offer much to consider when planning your night and are there with you every step of the way. They accommodated any ideas or surprises that you have planned, as well as being flexible with our last minute additions or changes the week of and day of the wedding. We could not be more thankful for giving us an amazing party that our guests could not stop raving about. I would highly recommend Uptown Express!
Thank you so much Michelle and Johnny!! We had such a great time celebrating with you and your family and friends! The air hockey idea was so good!

Dj Uptown Xpress is the best entertainment for events in the greater Montreal area, without a doubt. We hired Stefan for our wedding and we were thrilled with everything they did for us. Throughout the entire experience they were professional and cared about making us happy for our special day. We highly recommend Uptown Xpress! Go with them, you will not be disappointed!
Thank you Tatiana and Calogero! It is very much appreciated! And thank you for the kind words! That night was awesome, such a great venue, great crowd, and couple! Congrats again!

DJ Stefan and Uptown Xpress was everything we hoped for and more!!! Right from the beginning it was easy to see that Stefan is a true professional. Throughout the planning process he always responded efficiently to our questions and had great suggestions.
On the day of the wedding he was absolutely fantastic! He MC'd our wedding in English and French, it couldn't have gone any smoother. He entertained our guests all night long, there was never a dull moment on the dance floor. He also did a great job behind the scenes helping the night flow without glitch. We've heard nothing but positive things from our guests.
Not only is Stefan excellent at what he does, he's a genuinely nice person and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend him to anyone. You're in great hands with DJ Stefan.
Thank you DJ Stefan and Uptown Xpress!

What can I say, Uptown Xpress was amazing - from the first meet with Stefan and Franco (Stefan had an event already that night so Franco took care of us) we knew that we would be in great hands. He was very flexible with our budget and we couldn't have been happier with how organized everything went - the day of went by like a breeze and my husband just kept raving about how amazing our DJs Franco and Johnny were the entire night - especially with the fact that everyone was dancing (especially the kids, our friends and cousins who all went WILD - I have photos of them dancing like crazy and one of my cousins was so into it he apparently had the sweatiest shirt in history).
Franco was super responsive to the last minute changes and was very professional - everyone was impressed with our choice of DJ/MC and we couldn't have been happier to have picked Uptown for our special day. THANKS SO MUCH!!
PS: The lighting they brought looks AMAZING in our photos - they really picked the best type that will make your photos look amazing!!
Thank you Stephanie and Benjamin! You guys where great to work with too! Thank you for trusting us with your very special day!
