DJ Scott Stackpole

Scott has been involved in the music industry as a DJ, drummer, musician, and producer since his late teens. He started spinning professionally in 1996, DJ’ing private NYC rooftop parties.  His work at these exclusive events landed him a weekly DJ residency at NYC’s Coney Island High. This residency opened up all kinds of new opportunities, including DJ work at NYC’s Webster Hall and Niagara. He was a resident DJ at Bowlmor Lanes, spinning at their weekly ‘Lights Out’ electronica event, while continuing to work overtime lighting up dance floors at private events. His clients include L’Oreal, Capitol Records, and Bryce Dallas Howard, to name a few. He has worked as a DJ for numerous large-scale weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs in the tri-state area. In addition to providing DJ services, he has worked for Arista Records, BMG, and EMI North America. He moved to the Hudson Valley in 2009 with his wife and children. He brings years of professional DJ experience to every gig he does with JTD. He appreciates all genres of music and is fluent in all matters of music, from the classics of the 1930s to today’s top hits. Scott makes it a point to communicate with you leading up to your special day, work closely with the other vendors, and most importantly, play the music that you love so that you can have the party of your life.

What Our Clients Say About Scott

“Just wanted to reach out to say Scott was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!
Scott was so great when we had a call before the event. He really got us and explained what he was going to do throughout the big day. After the call, Matt and I were so confident that Scott would be great but I think we both underestimated HOW GREAT Scott would be.
We had so many people coming up to us throughout the night saying the music was perfect. He really kept everyone on the dance floor and in a great mood!
He was truly beyond expectations and crushed it! (On top of it all, he was really sweet!)
Thank you and the whole JTD family for being there on this big day!”

-Maggie and Matt

“Scott was such an awesome part of our wedding day! His personality and energy were very laid-back and easy going which put me at ease (very hard to do for me!) and he didn’t hesitate to say he’d stay as late as we’d like when we realized we were running behind schedule. Scott did the best job not only playing our requests but also reading the vibe of the room and making everyone dance in their seats during dinner and kick their shoes off on the dance floor… which was packed from start to finish. He also was super helpful making announcements for shuttles, favors and reminders. Scott was great at communicating and was the perfect fit for our best day ever. All of our guest had the best time and we wish we could do it all over again! A few of our guests are professional DJs and went out of their way to compliment Scott on a job well done. Mike and I cannot thank Scott and JTD [enough] for the party of our lives! -Jennifer Marie

“JTD was one of the easiest vendors to work with! Scott was wonderful and listened to exactly what we wanted.”  – Margot & Larry Meshick, Wedding at Owls Hoot Barn

“We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out and Scott was a big part of it!” – Marisa Lazaro & Rob Dollbaum, Wedding at Skylands Manor

“Scott was wonderful. Very self sufficient, obtrusive, responsive, and capable- All requests were included. I just wish we had JTD every weekend!” – Shapiro/Davidson Wedding at The Kaaterskill

“The team at JTD Productions was amazing. Dave called me right away when I first emailed and helped get us started when booking our DJ, he was so personable and you could tell he really loves what he does. We had Scott for the event and on our first meeting we felt really comfortable with him. He knew exactly what we were asking for and delivered on the day. He made the entire evening fantastic and our guests had a great time. He played directly to our tastes and the guests’ age range which was perfect. The process from start to finish was so easy, from the selection of our songs to the final touch-base with Scott to the actual day. Thanks so much Dave and Scott, we couldn’t be more pleased with how the evening went.” – Valerie & Joseph from Walkill, NY, Wedding at Dutchess County Country Club

“All went really well! Scott made announcements and timed everything perfectly!” – Jennifer Hendren

“It’s so important to dance. Scott was great; we got so many complements on the music!” – Kerry & Christopher from Saugerties, NY, Wedding at The Rhinecliff

“We chose JTD Productions because of Dave Leonard’s persistence, price accommodation, reputation, and reviews. Music is huge for us, we picked 90% of the songs. Scott played primarily songs we had picked and he did a great job choosing when to play each song. He only made announcements when asked and was not attention seeking.” – Jeff Morris & Lindsay from Watertown, MA, Wedding at Full Moon Resort

“I have nothing but positive things to say about Scott – he was a wonderful DJ at our wedding and we were so glad to have him set the ‘pace’ for our party. We live in London, but got married in NYC (where I grew up). We only made one trip for planning in the months leading up to the wedding, so face-to-face meetings, Skype discussions and email were important during the planning stages of our wedding. During that time, Scott and JTD were always available. Scott was completely responsible, helpful and fun to work with – all the things you want for someone involved in your wedding. We talked about flow for the evening, his role as DJ (being vocal, more quiet, etc.), set up, etc. He provided us with some nice guidance and suggestions to help get things going, organize first dances, etc. – but he never imposed a ‘this is how it is done’ type approach. However, he was always willing to share an opinion and we went with most of them…as they were good suggestions! When we couldn’t find certain songs, he and the JTD Team were extremely helpful researching options for us. Most importantly, Scott was a GREAT read of our guests and knew when to keep the pace up, slow it down or change it up entirely. And of course, as the night went on, he was great about managing requests from guests – taking on what he could without deviating from our list/set of songs we wanted to have and hear. We didn’t leave the dance floor and neither did our guests – which is exactly how we wanted it to be! I highly recommend working with Scott and JTD Productions. We had a very positive experience and we were so pleased to have had them as part of our wedding team. If you have any questions, I’d be more than happy to chat further if that would be helpful.” – Jennifer & Cameron from London, UK, Wedding at Harold Pratt House NYC

“We had a great experience with JTD. The managerial staff was really responsive and helpful, the planning tools and music selection they had were great, and our DJ, Scott, was awesome. We were nervous about having our wedding over-mc’ed (didn’t want a lot of “Electric Slides” or talking) and were really reassured by how JTD and Scott described their approach. Scott was a fantastic DJ–he played all of the songs we requested but mixed them in in such a way as to reflect the crowd’s mood. He also picked a lot of great selections that complemented what we’d chosen. Scott really listened to what we wanted and reflected it back the whole night. JTD was also really flexible and a great value! Thanks again!” – Kristin & Brian from Brooklyn, NY, Wedding at Hollow Brook Golf Club

“Scott did a great job through out. We gave him lots of music choices and he used them very well: great mix during cocktails. Jazz and classical during dinner. He got everybody, I mean everybody, up to dance. Good job!” – Gina & Baird from Woodstock, NY, Wedding at Diamond Mills

“We chose JTD Productions because of Dave Leonard’s persistence, price, accommodation, reputation, and reviews. Music is huge for us, we picked 90% of the songs.

“Good Morning Scott, I just wanted to let you know that everyone really loved your dance set.  So many people came up to us afterwards and told how much they enjoyed it and how great you did in keeping it going.  I even had a older friend of ours compliment the dinner music as well.  But it was your dance set that blew everyone away. They all loved it! I trust you got your thank you card and I do apologize for not handing it to you personally.  We were planning on leaving right after our dramatic final exit during the Peter Gunn Remix and that’s why I had Sean deliver it to you.  Then we realized that we had a bunch of stuff still in the room and as well, my buddy didn’t know who was who from the NWHC staff and which flowers we wanted, etc. I hope you understand. Across the board you were great to work with and did an amazing job keeping it happening.  We could not have asked for a better DJ!  Thank you so much for all your great spinning.” – Phil & Jennifer, Wedding

“We couldn’t be any happier with how our wedding turned out, and Scott is a big part of it!” –  Marissa & Rob

“Scott, I can’t stress to you enough how awesome a party you threw us. Absolutely every single song that came on was perfectly timed and amazing. Even though we had a hand in picking out some of the music, you were by far the best dj at a wedding I’ve ever encountered! It helped contribute in making our night so so perfect. I can’t believe I even sang into the mic! That song by Donny Hathaway is one I often belt out at home but singing in front of a crowd is something I am always too shy to do…anyway, just another way the night was unexpected and amazing beyond what we could have imagined. (The lift at the end was also completely unplanned by our friends) still can’t believe that actually went down… Everyone raved about the music and we couldn’t be more thankful to you. Would love to write you a review on the website when we get the chance.”  – Sarah & Mike

“JTD was wonderful to work with! We hired them as our Wedding DJ, thru out the whole process they were quick to respond, flexible and fun to work with! We absolutely LOVED how they had forms to help organize what music we wanted to have played thru out the day! It allowed us to really have control of what we wanted to have played and what we didn’t. It was perfect!!!! Our DJ the day of was Scott and he listened carefully to our forms and never missed a beat! All of our family and friends had a great time and the dance floor was always full! We highly recommend JTD Productions and believe it was money well spent! Thank you Dave, Nellie & Scott!!!” – Heather

“Thanks Scott! Music was wonderful last night – only compliant was that it ended!! ☺” – Paul

“Scott was awesome, we had him for four hours, the price was totally reasonable and totally worth it – after the toasts and dinner, he started the party music and the first song was my favorite so I ran out to dance and never sat back down! He did an amazing job!” – Amanda

“Loved working with these guys. Scott DJ’d the wedding and was amazing. Very professional and knew how to work the crowd. Priced well and dependable. There’s a reason my bride’s entire family continues to use them!” – Kevin D

“Everything you did was great. You had awesome music selections that went well with the crowd. We don’t think the dance floor was empty one bit aside from the specialty dances. We are glad to hear you had a great time as we did. Best of luck to you as well.” – Amanda & Peter

“Hey Scott, You did a killer job man, than you so so much! I was too drunk to remember to tip you, can you send me your address so I can send you a check. Well deserved and thank you so much again! Everyone had a blast and will be recommending JTD.” – Peter Gosselink
