I cannot rave enough about our experience working with EPIC Charleston! From our first inquiry email to the last song of the night, Lucas took exceptional care of us. The management and organization of EPIC is phenomenal and I always felt as though my wedding was a priority. Beyond the logistics side of things, these guys know how to throw a killer party that is tailored specifically to you and your guests. Lucas knew what we wanted even before we did and he kept the dance floor packed all night! If you are looking to take your wedding to the next level and create a night that won't soon be forgotten, hit these guys up right now. From one bride to another, it will be the single best decision you make!
The most important thing about your reception is the music. So don't skimp on money here. This is where you need to spend money. Not on flowers & centerpieces.
When you want a DJ who will make your reception THE reception that everyone will be talking about for years - go to Epic Charleston. Stephen Darby was my DJ for my reception and it was the BEST decision I made for my whole reception.
All of my guests were up and dancing. Stephen kept the dance floor full all night. He was so easy to work with. He also did uplighting in my reception room and it really made the room transform for the night.
He made necessary announcements, threw in some mash ups, and made the night memorable for all. All of our guests have said that it was the best party they have ever been to. You are in the BEST hands if you hire Epic Charleston. Don't go anywhere else.
Music is very important to my wife and I, and we wanted to be sure we gave ALL of our guests a great time when it came to our reception music. Looking back, going with DJ Lucas of Epic Charleston was one of the best decisions we made for our reception. We were married on Jan. 4th, and already I have had several friends & family personally reach out to me and say great things about the music. Most of all, people just talk about how much FUN they had, and I know that Lucas was a HUGE part of that. He did a wonderful job with the flow of the reception, making the introductions as well as the transitions between first dances and toasts feel as if it was seamless.
For those that really do want a great DJ, I will also say that DJ Lucas is just that - he does not simply play songs one after the other like a basic playlist, he actually mixes songs together and takes the reception to another level because people love the uniqueness of what they are hearing! It's not just like you have a radio, you have a DJ that knows what he is doing! I could not recommend him more, EPIC Charleston is one hell of a DJ company - 10 out of 10.
Our wedding was at the Citadel Beach House on IOP on 6/6/14. I planned the wedding from NJ. Stephen Darby was our DJ and was not only amazing that night but during the whole planning process. He is very prompt in responding, provides helpful recommendations and made us feel at ease during every conversation. He is nothing like the stereotypical cheesy DJ. He is an extremely talented musician that takes pride in what he does and the service he provides. My friends and family are still talking about how great he was and how much we danced the night away. I would 1000% recommend him and couldn't imagine choosing any other DJ.
My husband and I would highly recommend Epic Charleston! Lucas was awesome to work with!! Our wedding was the first time our families had met, and Lucas had everyone out on the dance floor having a good time together. We received so many compliments on how awesome the DJ was. We can't thank Epic Charleston enough for making our wedding reception such a memorable evening.

My husband and I debated having a DJ or live band for a while, we chose Epic Charleston and it was 1000% the right choice! Our guests were on the dance floor all night and are still talking about how much fun they had! It was the best night of my life!
We had EPIC Charleston provide DJ Services for our Wedding Reception last Saturday (6/7/14) at The Island House on Johns Island. The Reception Flowsheet they provided was a huge help and really set the stage for the whole night. Stephen Darby was our DJ and he did not disappoint. From the minute Darby started with dinner music, people were up and dancing and he kept us on track throughout the night as we did the cake cutting and got to the dance party. The dance floor was where it was at, and he did not let the music stop and played great party music all night. He did a great job of feeling how the night was going and made little adjustments here and there to make it an EPIC night that we will never forget. One really cool thing about Darby is that he brings his keyboards and will play along to just about any song that he plays. People would just stop and watch him play and would be mesmerized by how fast his hands were flying around. One of my groomsmen said he was in a constant state of euphoria that night and we were all drenched in sweat from dancing so hard. We can’t thank EPIC enough for a truly seamless night. We highly recommend them for any type of Wedding/Party services. - Austin and Bebe Tempest
We couldn't stop dancing! No one wanted the night to end and everyone was asking about Stephen Darby because they hadn't heard such great music mixed in such an incredible way before. His experience and piano rifts were brilliant. Wish we could bring his music with us to every club and bar we went to because he guarantees a fun time!
We booked our wedding with Stephen Darby when he was running Ecklipse Production. Before our wedding he became a part of EPIC Charleston. Stephen had our booking when he spoke about playing the keyboard live! We are all about the party and new that ours would be unforgettable. Stephen made our night! Everyone was dancing and having an incredible time! My husband manages to sings "Shout" at every wedding we go to so his "performance" at our wedding needed to be bigger! He sang shout while Stephen played it on the keyboard and it was definitely an EPIC moment. Our only regret is that we did not have a longer reception to enjoy the music and dancing longer!
They were a wonderful at reception. The dj was very accommodating of our thoughts and working with us before, during, and after the reception. We would recommend anyone to their company for anyone for an amazing event dj in the Charleston, SC area.
Lucas was absolutely fantastic! Everyone who we have spoken with mentions how incredible the DJ was. He really knew how to read the room and had everyone (of all ages) dancing the entire night. I would HIGHLY recommend Lucas/Creative Sound!
great job and enjoyed by the family of the bride and groom and all of the guests
We had creative sound for our DJ at our welcome party and also as our photo booth at the wedding. They did a great job and one of the highlights of my wedding was watching my nieces and nephews taking photos at the photo booth. My little cousin is obsessed with pirates and wore the pirate hat prop and beard the whole evening. Thank you for all your help in making our wedding weekend a great success!
Lucas was from beginning to end a professional and so lovely to work with. He played every song on our list and never once said he didn't have a song or deny a request. He also kept the party going throughout our reception.
There was never a lull or inappropriate music choice, and if I had it to do all over again I would choose Creative Sound for our event. If you hire them you will have one less thing to worry about on your wedding day...music will be handled! :)
There are not enough wonderful words in the dictionary to use and express my gratitude of Creative Sounds. We were wanting to get married out of town in South Carolina and found Wild Dunes Resort to be the perfect fit for a ceremony & reception. Lucky for us, Wild Dunes had a list of "preferred vendors" & Creative Sounds was #1 for music. Of course we HAD to call the #1 pick since everyone that has used them has had a pleasant experience. From the first phone call made to Creative Sounds to their expertise at the wedding, they were a 10 out of 10 in every category I could come up with. They were extremely friendly and willing and able to help create a wedding ceremony & reception that was one to keep our guests raving over for weeks and months following our wedding. The energy in the room up upbeat and there was not one second of a dull moment. Having experienced their services, my husband and I knew right away why they were the #1 preferred vendor. Not only did we use them for music for our ceremony and reception, but also for up lighting (which set the PERFECT mood in the ballroom) & their high-end photo booth (which was a complete hit!). If I knew then what I know now, I still would make the phone call to Creative Sounds and they would hands down be OUR #1 pick.
this was the best decision I could have made. these guys were GREAT! Nick had people on the dance floor the ENTIRE reception. he even re-played a song at the end because I couldn't dance when it came on the first time. they are very professional and also very good looking :) I didn't give them a specific list of songs to play/not to play and they did a wonderful job feeling the atmosphere and playing what the crowd wanted. everyone told me they had a great time dancing. these guys really know what they are doing and I definitely recommend them to anyone! I LOVE YOU NICK!!!!
Music was our number one priority for our wedding. The DJ sets the tone for the wedding/ reception and we could not be happier with our decision to use Lucas and Creative Sound!
Lucas impressed us with his professionalism from the beginning. He was quick to respond to emails and proactive in generating ideas to make our day special. He arrived hours before the ceremony to set up and was friendly with family and guests.
My husband and I wanted to edit a song for our First Dance. Creative Sound had the new song perfectly edited in a timely manner so we could practice our dance!
He kept our guests happy and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG! No one wanted the party to end! Our family and friends STILL cannot stop raving about how much fun they had and specifically mention our DJ, Lucas.
I wish I had another party planned so I could hire Lucas again! Absolutely incredible DJ.
Lucas and Nick are the absolute best wedding DJs in charleston hands down. They are the sole reason our wedding was such a blast and they seriously kept the party going all night. Excellent ability to sense the crowds personality and choose music accordingly. Didn't have to worry about them playing weird or inappropriate music because it was so well mixed to please everyone in the crowd. They do a good job of mixing it up so everyone has a good time and overall are super easy to work with and are very professional. Lots of fun too. My husband and I would book them again over and over again. Easy decision. Worth every penny if you want great music.
creative sound did an amazing job at my wedding - they put me completely at ease, and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. you know it's a great party when the dance floor is absolutely packed until the very end of the reception. dj lucas was such a pleasure to work with... he helped keep the night moving smoothly, played music to appeal to everyone at the reception, and was a total sport when my dad accidentally threw a plastic axe at him during his speech (we brought a lot of extra props for our photo booth!). oh, they also managed our photo booth which was an absolute blast. top quality and great value. couldn't recommend them more.
Our reception and ceremony ran flawlessly!! Nick was our DJ and he was on point with everything. I wouldn't have changed a single thing. The music was fun and exactly what we wanted! I had so many people tell me that they hadn't had that much fun at a wedding in a very long time! I think Nick was a huge part of that!!
