"Steven was a true professional from start to finish. He knew how to insert his personality into the event just enough to make sure things went smoothly without trying to be the star of the show.

"Nate from Steven Vance did a fantastic job at making sure every song from our wedding was perfect! He took us on a musical journey and made sure everyone at the wedding was entertained. The classical violin for the ceremony was beautiful, the electric rock violin for the coctail hour and dinner was amazing, and then the full DJ service for the reception made sure everyone was out on the dance floor! Your guests won't be able to stay in their seats when the performer is doing his/her thing! Highly highly highly reccomened if you want the best DJ service and wedding night of your life!” Lauren & Adam 6/24/17 Grand Concourse Station Square ViolinistDj Nate Goodrich

"Killian and I would like to thank you for your violin, keyboard, and dj services for our wedding at Soldiers and Sailors! Our guests loved listening to you two play and we received countless compliments about you. The pop rock music was the perfect vibe we were going for in a elegant venue but wanting to keep everyone fun and lively! You have amazing talent and we know that anyone using your services in the future are in good hands :) We could not be happier with how the evening went. It was the perfect wedding!"

We were so pleased that my sister booked them for her wedding next June."
Elizabeth & Vincent 6/24/17 String Trio, Trumpet and Organist

"The violin and the DJ package was affordable and just perfect for our wedding! Steven Vance did a wonderful job and played the violin beautifully! " Review on The Knot  Steven Vance Violin & DJ Package

"We had a great time during our reception. Nate (our DJ and violinist) did an excellent job! He worked with us and he made sure our guests were always entertained. We even asked him to play a specific list of songs and so he did! We recommend this vendor to all of the young couples looking to have a very well organized and fun reception!" Fabiana & Giancarla 5/27/17   Embassy Suites Moon Twp.  Violinist & DJ Nate Goodrich

"I'm so sorry it took me this long to get back to you. Things were crazy leading up to the wedding. I just wanted to let you know both Younga and Mike were fantastic on our wedding day. I didn't get to hear a lot of what Younga played since I was sequestered, but I heard was wonderful. Mike did a phenomenal job. He played all the styles and music we wanted and kept the party hopping all night long. I can't say enough good things about Mike. He was also extremely easy to work with. Thanks again for everything and take care!!!!" Bethany & Michael  5/27/17 Grand Concourse   Violinist and DJ Package

"We were very pleased with the professionalism and talent of Younga who played at our wedding. She did an awesome job on the Cello, and we would highly recommend her again!" Stephanie & Derek 5/27/17 Chippewa United Methodist Church Cellist Younga Reitz

"I just wanted to thank you again for being part of our day this past Saturday.  I am sorry I did not get the chance to make it down where you were playing, I kept getting held up by people during cocktail hour.  I saw you just as we were being announced into the reception.  I did however hear all the music being played and it was exceptional!  I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said how much they enjoyed the music and how good it was.  So I again just wanted to thank you for making our day so special."                                            Sara & Bill 5/20/17 Westin Convention Center Hotel  Piano and Violin Duo for Cocktails.

"Steven is absolutely FANTASTIC! He was extremely professional from start to finish of the process. Always responded promptly to emails and answered any question we had. Steven really made our wedding day special. We had violin and piano for our ceremony, which were beautiful. Then Steven wowed our guests with his pop rock violin during cocktail hour. Our friends and family LOVED him and were challenging him to play all kinds of crazy songs, which he happily did. Next was the reception where he continued to be outstanding. He had people out on the dance floor way earlier than any wedding I've ever been to. He played our requests but also read the crowd to choose music. I could not give a higher recommendation to Steven. Our wedding was over a month ago and I'm still getting texts from friends asking for his contact info. Thanks Steven, you're truly the BEST! Paige & Chad  5/13/17 Succop Nature Park Keystring Violin & Piano Duo, PopRock Violin & DJ Steven Vance

"Sarah played at our wedding and she was fantastic"

Erin & Tommy  St. Thomas a Beckett Jefferson Hills 5/6/17 Solo Violinist Sarah Garin

"We were lucky to have Steven Vance for our reception! He played strolling violin during dinner, kicking off with a solo to my fiance and me. It was relaxing and fun to see which songs each table would request as he came by! Afterwards, he got the dancing started :-) We were VERY pleased with how he spaced out all the organized dances (father/daughter, mother/son, dollar dance, longest married, etc.) throughout the evening as opposed to packing them all into the beginning. This kept our guests interested and they stayed to enjoy the reception longer than they might have otherwise. Steven was good about asking for songs we definitely wanted and definitely did not want, and he filled in the rest of the details. Overall, a job well done!"  Danna & Hector  4/29/17 Omni William Penn Hotel  Steven Vance Violin & DJ Package

"Ron Molinaro, who is a strolling violinist with Steven Vance Entertainment, played during our cocktail hour at our wedding. I cannot express how many great comments and compliments we received about Ron playing. He's the perfect touch to a reception! Thanks again!"

Liza & Tony 4/29/17    Scottish Rite New Castle

Strolling Violinist Ron Molinaro

"We enjoyed the his electric violin for cocktail hour and strolling violin for dinner, added the special touch we were looking for. He did a nice job with the announcement, transitions throughout the evening and kept people dancing throughout the evening."  Nicole & Matt  4/28/17  Lemont  Steven Vance Violin & Dj Package

"I really wanted to say thank you for being a part of our big day! Sorry it was so crazy, I really wanted to stop over before you did leave. I think you did such a beautiful job and everyone had nothing but great things to say about you ! Thank you again!"

Heather and Benjamin Mull 4/21/17                   Willow Restaurant Camp Horne Road

Violinist Steven Vance

"Very professional! The live violin was so amazing during dinner! All guest were entertained and loved it! The music was great during all the dancing and our dances. The dance floor was full and everyone was dancing!"   Lauren & Troy  4/8/17                                               The Columbian Room Wexford                           Violinist & DJ Steven Vance


“Steven was very professional. He offered a wide range of options for us as we were in the planning stages. Our guests have given us so much feedback on how impressed they were with him and how much they enjoyed him. Steven really carried the evening for us with his electric violin for our cocktail hour, his strolling violin and professional emcee services during our dinner, and then as the DJ for our dancing part of our reception. He did a great job coordinating with our caterer and other vendors so he knew what was going and and when and he communicated that clearly to our guests. In addition, he happily took special requests, both from my daughter and son in law during the planning of the reception and also during the reception. I can not speak highly enough of how much we appreciated having him play such an important part of our daughter and son in law's wedding day. I appreciated how it was very evident that Steven wanted to provide the best possible experience for our evening as possible. I would highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone considering having him play a part in their wedding celebration.”                             Lorrie Mother of the Bride 3/25/17                           Pittsburgh Opera House The Strip District PopRock PopRock Violinist & DJ Steven Vance

Khory and I would just like to thank you again for your DJ-ing last night. The dance floor was packed all nightand we received many compliments about you. We also were surprised and delighted when we were handed a CD with the important songs on it from our wedding! Thank you so much,we truly appreciate it.”
Kaylynn and Khory Lion 3/25/17                       Crystal Ballroom  Days Inn Butler                             PopRock Violinist Joyce and DJ Mike Greca

"I just wanted to send you a message to tell you thank you one last time. You did a fantastic job. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone who needs a DJ. I loved all of the music selections you had. We even had people ask what your name was because they also thought you did a great job. The music can make or break a reception and I am very thankful we hired you"                                   Megan & Colin 2/25/17 Butler Country Club

Steven Vance PopRock Violin & DJ Package

“We loved the complete package with Nathan Goodrich He created the final symphony of music for our wedding! Our family and guests all mentioned him in point! "Hey the Violinist fantastic and what a great job" They also loved the music mix and DJ service that Nathan incorporated into the evening as part DJ service and Entertainment My suggestion is to spend an afternoon together as a couple - choosing your favorite songs and sharing everyone of them with Nathan, his artistic ear puts the evening together as it flows like a musical symphony of artists with the violinist acting as mistro really superb! We will use Nathan again for events other than weddings as he really knows how to read a crowd. He is engaging!”                                                                                    Joe & Lori Bosiljevac  2/25/17  Omni William Penn Hotel  PopRock Electric Violinist/DJ Nate Goodrich

 

"Steven Vance was absolutely wonderful and impressive. He was incredibly detailed, generous, and informative while planning the wedding. He met our needs exceptionally well and was very easy to work with, ensuring that all of our wants, preferences, and "must play" songs were met. Steven played strolling violin during the cocktail hour and during dinner at our reception. Our guests were amazed and excited at Steven's abilities. An incredible violin player, guests could request anything from Italian classics to new pop to the Ninja Turtle theme song, and Steven drew eyes and applause from each table. After dinner, our dance floor had couples of all ages dancing all night. We even extended the reception by an hour because we did not want to dim the energy that Steven's music helped create. If you are looking for a talented and impressive musician and DJ, you should truly consider Steven Vance. We definitely will for future occasions after experiencing his services at our wedding."

Ali & Michael  11/19/16  Marriott Airport Hotel Steven Vance Violin & DJ Package

"Steven Vance Entertainment was a pleasure to work with.
They always answered emails in a timely fashion and were helpful with suggestions. We used a duo for our ceremony music and it was perfect."

"Steven was great! Steven did everything for our wedding. He played the electric violin for the ceremony and cocktail hour, then turned into our DJ and kept our guests dancing all night long! We also used his company for our photobooth rental. It was so nice to deal with 1 single vendor for multiple items and he made everything very worry free. I would highly recommend him to anyone!"                                                                             Jerica & Greg 12/31/16 PNC Park                                          PopRock Violinist & DJ Steven Vance                             Slick Pic Photobooth
