DJ Scott Dewing - My Story
Hi, I’m DJ Scott Dewing (or just Scott!), and hopefully, I’ll be looking after one of the most memorable days of your life so, I think it’s only fair that you get to know a little more about me. If there is anything you’d like to know then please don’t hesitate to contact me – I’d love to hear from you.
Home & Family Life
First and foremost I’m a family man and I’m very lucky to have the support of those nearest and dearest to me. My better half is Fern, not only is she beautiful, she keeps me organised, motivated and laughing (usually at rather than with her).
In May 2016 I became a Father to my Daughter Lyla-Marie. Since the day she was born, Lyla continues to light up every room she enters bringing smiles and laughter to everyone she meets. I couldn’t be more proud of this young lady. Being part of this incredible industry has given me the opportunity to watch her grow to this day and for that, I am truly grateful.
I’m more of a Dog kinda guy but my partner wanted a Cat – we did what every successful relationship does and compromised – unfortunately, we now have a Cat. She’s called Nellie – she’s lovely (when she’s asleep) let’s move on haha!
Hobbies & Interests
When the UK went in to lockdown on 23rd March 2020, I like every other supplier in the Wedding Industry had to stop working. This left me with a lot of free time and made me realise that I don’t actually have a proper hobby as such so, I decided that I needed one!
Saturday 22nd August 2020 I took to the skies on my first lesson to become a Helicopter Pilot and what an experience it was! I’ve got a long way to go before I come close to gaining my personal pilot’s licence but I’m very excited to be on that journey.
I have more lessons booked in and if you’re on my social media channels then you’ll be able to see more of my journey as it takes place.
My DJ Background
Around the age of 14, I was fascinated with the way in which people react to music. Not just what was played, but more when it was played and how it was played. You can give the same database of music to two separate DJs and depending on what they play and when will determine how well the audience reacts on the night.
I have built a wealth of experience not just from Weddings & Corporate Events but Birthdays, Bars & Nightclubs to name a few. The warm-up at the start of every event will tell me a lot about how the evening is going to flow. I am continuously looking for the suttle head bop, the tapping thumb or feet to guide me on the right genre for the audience in front of me which I can build on and ensure everyone has an incredible night.
In my time as a DJ, I’ve played music across many decades and genres including the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s & 00s, to recent releases including RnB, Soul & Motown, House, Garage, Hip-Hop, Rock, Indie, Latino, Reggaeton, Dancehall and of course the Top 40 & Party Anthems.
Although most DJs will play across the board to ensure that everyone has a great night, they are also generally a specialist in a particular genre. Old Skool RnB, Dance & Garage – otherwise known as KISSTORY is what I’d consider being my speciality as DJ Scott Dewing!
Other Business Involvement
I’m also a partner to the business Sweetness & Light. We design, build & hire a range of unique props for events such as Weddings, Birthdays & Special Occasions. These props include Light Up Letters, Numbers, Hearts and Wedding TV Displays. Our business started in January 2018 and by July 2019 we were asked to supply Light Up Letters to Sir Tom Jones concert at Castle Park, Colchester. It certainly won’t of been the first time he’s had his name up in lights but we felt this was a huge achievement for our second year in business.
We’ve got so many ideas that will soon be put into production and I’d love you to join us on our exciting journey. Check out our social media channels below.
