Epic was amazing to work with! From the minute I reached out through the very last song at our wedding they were top notch. Nick was awesome! Our guests didn't leave the dance floor and ended the night chanting "one more song" because they didn't want the music to stop. Nick of course obliged and played one more song to end the night on such a high. We received so many compliments about the music and Nick. The photobooth was also a HUGE hit and guests were addicted to it. Overall I can't say enough great things about Nick and the Epic team. They are the absolute best and made our wedding night one that no one will ever forget. Thanks Nick for being so easy to work with and for playing music that kept everyone on the dance floor all night!!
Where do I start... EPIC Charleston helped make our wedding PERFECT! From the music selections, to the beautiful uplighting, to the fun photobooth... our guests were having the time of their lives. My friends and family were constantly telling me, "this is the best wedding we have ever been to!" Now that makes a bride feel good... it certainly could not have been done without EPIC! The Ceremony was perfect with the beautiful music they provided. Kevin was our DJ for the night, he played the best selection of light and happy tunes for our cocktail hour. Once we entered the reception the real fun began! Kevin did an amazing job at keeping our guests on the dance floor all night! Nick set up beautiful uplighting. We had our wedding at the Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation. The lighting certainly helped my dream vision come alive. One of our favorite parts of the evening was the photo booth! Such fun for all our guests and now we have THE BEST guestbook we could have ever imagined full of everyone's goofy photos and well wishes. I could not have imagined a more perfect, special wedding day. I can say with 100% confidence that EPIC played a huge role in making our dreams come true. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to have an amazing wedding/reception that really caterers to all guests. Thank you so much EPIC for making the whole day so easy, stress-free and SO much fun!
The DJ that MADE my reception EPIC!Reviewed on 4/09/2014 Jessica E
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.
Unhappy.Reviewed on 1/02/2016 Cristina C
Not at all recommended, unless you’re okay with complete unprofessionalism and not hearing back from anyone for 2.5 months after countless calls, emails, and texts AFTER already paying them in full. EPIC was highly recommended to us, and in the first meeting, they made us feel excited and great about them! After that and the payment, we heard nothing. After the 2nd month arrived, I began frantically trying to reach them. Still nothing. Things with them went well on the wedding day, but in the midst of planning a wedding, this is the very last thing you’ll want to deal with. Our good friend used them for her wedding, which was a couple months before ours, and she said she experienced the exact same thing, along with arrogance.
They are THE BEST!!! So nice and easy to work with. The music made the night! -Katie
Can't go wrong with this one!Reviewed on 11/12/2015 Betsy R
EPIC was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. Energetic, friendly, and on top of their tunes!
Our DJ was Nick Eilerman and he was absolutely the best. He gave us a worksheet to help us design our event musically and by the end of it we knew it was going to be an amazing time. He organized and announced the bridal party and speeches in a professional way, and his music selections and play were flawless. We had a TON of people on the dance floor! I highly recommend Nick!
Kevin was...how do you say...OFF THE CHARTS! Our friends and family never stopped dancing. He even got my friends that don't normally dance out on the dance floor. Nick (EPIC Charleston's Founder) helped guide us through the music selection process and made it a breeze! The fun didn't stop there... oh.. and the PHOTOBOOTH! The photobooth was amazing because the wedding went so fast, but now we have pictures of our family and friends we can share with them offline and on facebook. It truly made our wedding one of a kind. Everyone had a blast! Soi f you are having trouble trying to figure out which DJ to pick for your lowcountry wedding, go with EPIC!
Epic has been beyond wonderful to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. From the first meeting to the big day, and every moment in between, Nick and the Epic guys were a dream to work with! They provided the music for both our ceremony and reception, as well as an awesome photo booth for the reception. The music Nick played during the reception sounded great and the selection was exactly what we wanted. I appreciated the fact that Nick played some of our requests as well as a few surprises that went with our overall musical vibe for the evening. Nick's approach to dealing with a few minor mishaps throughout the night was professional and laid back. Epic is the best choice for a DJ in Charleston!
Nick and EPIC were......EPIC. We got married during the crazy flooding of October 2015 and EPIC was never in question. Washed out roads and standing water did not prevent EPIC from arriving on time and delivering a great night of music. Even a power outage couldn't stop the music as EPIC had a back up battery powered speaker. My highest compliment for EPIC is that while Nick, our DJ, had a great personality and did a great job moving the night along he always let the music dominate. The music was his primary focus not delivering cheesy commentary. Leading up to the wedding we meet with Nick on two occasions. Nick was always professional and always fun to interact with. Through our discussions Nick was able to understand the types of music we like and create a night a music that keep everyone on the dance floor. Thank you.
Nick orchestrated the ceremony and reception music for our wedding at Lowndes Grove. After attending our share of outdoor ceremonies with challenging sound quality with the speakers, we were a bit skeptical at first to use a DJ. Nick eased our concerns meeting with us twice before our big day. We must say that NIck 100% delivered and really set the ambiance, ensuring flawless sound and smooth transitions between songs. The party went late in into the evening, and our guests raved about the music! We highly recommend Epic Charleston for your big day!
Nick was wonderful to work with for our wedding! He created a memorable first dance song for us that was a huge hit! At the wedding, Nick was really great at reading the crowd and kept the dance party going- the dance floor was full the entire night! We highly recommend EPIC!
A Truly Epic DJReviewed on 8/16/2015 Linda G
We could not have been happier with Stephen Darby!! Our reception was incredible, thanks in large part to Stephen. From the beginning he was very easy to work with and made everything simple, requiring little input from us. The day of the wedding, he was on time, set up and ready to go. He was able to keep the reception events moving smoothly throughout the evening. Also, Stephen was able to create a playlist that was enjoyed by our friends as well as our grandparents. Stephen provides great energy to the crowd, and really makes an effort to include everyone in the fun. He literally had everyone on the dance floor enjoying themselves. If you are planning a wedding, hire Stephen. You will not find a better DJ!!
EPIC was recommended to me by my wedding planner and it was the perfect match! Nick did an incredible job with our ceremony and reception. The dance floor was never empty and as my matron of honor put it-every time she went to request a song he played it before she even had a chance. Nick followed our must play list and added his own style to it which created the best party ever. Letting me DJ for a second was so much fun. Thanks to the whole team at EPIC for a night we will never forget!
EPIC was absolutely fantastic! We used them for DJ, uplighting and photo booth. I read amazing reviews about them before our wedding and we were not disappointed. Nick was our DJ, he was professional but still knew how to keep everyone dancing the entire night. I had a numerous people come up to me the night of our wedding and even after to tell me how awesome the DJ was. EPIC helped make our night exactly what we imagined! We could not be happier that we used them!
Awesome partyReviewed on 7/04/2015 Darina G
These guys know how to throw a party, but they also know how to handle a wedding ceremony. We used EPIC for both of Ceremony and Reception. They did an amazing job. We walked down the isle for the first time as husband and wife to a string quartet tribute to "get lucky", it was so unique and the guests loved it! The first time we met with Lucas we knew we would book them for our wedding. He knew exactly what kind of music we wanted for our reception and offered assistance with timing out all the reception events, i.e. first dances, cake cutting. It was great to work with a group of guys who were close in age to us because they understood what wanted. We highly recommend EPIC!
Best vendor decision!!Reviewed on 4/14/2015 Kasey O
You HAVE to use EPIC as your DJ services! Nick was awesome!! Our wedding was just this past weekend and we have already had so many guests compliment our DJ! Nick does an awesome job on transitioning all of the songs and keeping people on the dance floor. It's not like a typical DJ at all, most DJ's just play a song at a time, like an ipod almost. Well not EPIC! They mash songs together and even let me (the bride) mash some of the songs too, which was super cool! and you HAVE to get their photo booth. It's an open air photo booth so no one has to cram into a tiny little booth. Guests loved it! And so did we! They are more expensive than other DJ's but TOTALLY worth it! You have to hire EPIC as your vendor!!
Fantastic PartyReviewed on 1/19/2015 Vanessa L
They sure do know how to keep a party going! The wedding was a blast! Lucas and Stephen were an amazing team. They played everything that we asked them, and even found a little known song for my Father and I to dance to. They read the crowd beautifully. It was so special to see so so many people up and having fun.
Stephen is the BEST at what he does!Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Christina F
Stephen Darby and the EPIC team are truly incredible at what they do…EPICly amazing actually (if I may try my hand at being punny). Stephen was the DJ for our wedding on October 18, 2014 at Pepper Pavilion and also provided uplighting for our reception. There aren’t enough words to describe the phenomenal job he did. The music selection was absolutely perfect, exactly what we requested actually. And his talent on the keyboard, mashing up songs live in-person really showed through to all of our guests. Everyone was on the dance floor at some point or another, and we haven’t stopped hearing from our guests how much they enjoyed the music. When my husband and I think back to what we envisioned the music scene being like for our wedding, Stephen Darby nailed it with flawless execution. I recommend Stephen to EVERY single bride who is looking for a DJ that can provide a fun, professional, relaxed, entertaining, exciting, engaging, and memorable reception. He is so easy to work with, and isn’t gimmick-y at all, like we expected most DJs to be. He is down to earth and knows how to get the job done. Stephen, we can’t thank you enough.
personable and attentiveReviewed on 10/29/2014 jessica s
Best entertainment in Charleston! We had a destination wedding and wanted everyone to enjoy Charleston as much as we do and Stephen did just that! He made sure there was a flow throughout the entire reception and everything was on time! We honestly can not thank or praise Stephen enough for making our day so unforgettable!
Best All AroundReviewed on 10/25/2014 Erika C
Epic Charleston was by far the best choice we made for DJ and music for our wedding and reception. We were looking for someone dependable, flexible, easy-going and fun while also producing a top-quality product and service. We definitely found that in Lucas Wade. We knew from the very start when we met him in his office that we would have an amazing performance and experience with him at the helm. He was amazing in working the crowd and driving high-levels of energy with our guests throughout the night. Trust me when I say that our guests had tons of great feedback with his performance. There are certain individuals who never (and I mean, NEVER) dance at weddings and we saw them busting a cut on the floor because if his mixing, constant transitioning and variety of music. We would book Epic Charleston any day and every day and twice on the weekends! They are the best around and you get your money’s worth with the packages that they offer. We had very high expectations and Lucas exceeded them by a mile. He was a very big part in why our wedding was tremendously fun and successful!!!! -Justin (Groom, on behalf of Bride)
You WONT regret this!! :)Reviewed on 10/20/2014 Megan P
WOW! Stephen provided the most magical wedding ceremony and reception that we could have ever asked for. He listened to us from day one, learning our likes and dislikes in music...he picked the perfect ceremony music and kept the dance floor packed during the reception. The guests loved that they could text in requests and that he played the piano live during the reception. Thank you again for all that you did, I cannot wait to see the video from this night! :)
Great Job!Reviewed on 10/15/2014 Jacqueline D
Nick did a wonderful job at my wedding- we was able to incorporate both Greek and American music to make both sides of the family happy. Highly recommend him!
Perfection! Stephen DarbyReviewed on 8/18/2014 kim l
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.
Epic Charleston is Great!Reviewed on 8/07/2014
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. Sara and Eric
