Scott Arrington has been a private event music provider for 7 years. During that time, he has noticed a distinct evolution in musical preferences among clients. The constantly changing world of popular music, coupled with the unique tastes of underground music fans and old souls, has created a kind of melodic melting pot. Within this equation, any and everything goes and a growing number of genres and sub-genres are being represented at any given event.
In preparation for your private event, Scott’s main objective is to listen. It’s your event and your vision is what matters most. If you need help creating that vision, just ask! He is not afraid to note his experience but is constantly humbled by new crowds, new crazes, and individual requests. The world of music is obscenely vast and there is no such thing as an expert.
During the execution stage of your event, Scott follows through with the same professionalism for which Murray Hill Talent is known. A tasteful presence on the microphone and a capable mind behind the controls, feel secure knowing the music will be flawless.
Ben & I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic job you did at our wedding; everything was perfect and you got eveyone dancing like we wanted. My guests couldn't stop talking about how perfect the music was! Thanks again!
Sarah & Ben Goodhue, 10/13/12 wedding at Bancroft Hall, Cohasset, MA

Alexandra Gilardo, 9/14/12 wedding at the Seaport Hotel, Boston, MA
We were thrilled with Scott and with the jazz trio that we also booked through Murray Hill Talent! Everyone has been raving about the msuic and the dance floor was packed all night. Thank you!
Erin & David Jenkins, 6/23/12 wedding at Tupper Manor, Beverly, MA
Scott was exactly what we wanted in a DJ - he was friendly and easy going, yet totally took control and made the party happen. His timing is perfect!
Pamela & Mark Welborn, 6/16/12 wedding at Buttonwoods Casino, Warwick, RI
Everything was amazing and exactly as we hoped for. We have gotten so many compliments from our family and friends about how great the music was and how professional the DJ was! Thanks again!.
Carly & William Holm, 6/8/12 wedding at Elks at Bass Rocks, Gloucester, MA
Scott did an amazing job at our wedding. We received so many compliments from our guests that the music was perfect and beautiful - and most importantly, every song was meaningful to my husband and me. Scott really did a great job of playing music that my husband andI requested, improvising to keep the guests on the dance floor all night. I would 100% recommend Scott & Murray Hill Talent to others.
Sarah Sparks, 5/26/12 wedding at Connors family Retreat, Dover, MA
Scott did a fantastic job! He was wonderful to work with and provided excellent music for the wedding. Would love to work with him again someday.
Raku Coryne & Leo Martin, 1/1/12 wedding, Artists For Humanity Epicenter, Boston, MA
Scott was absolutely perfect, and we would tell anyone who needs a DJ to hire him. Everything he did was exactly what we wanted. Perfect."
Lindsay Miller, 12/30/11 wedding, Alden Castle, Brookline, MA
Great experience! From the first phone call for information all the way through to the last dance - everyone at Murray Hill was fantastic, and Scott was great. He got a group of 1st generation immigrants from Vietnam in their 60's, a huge crew of Iowa natives, Manhattanites & Ivy leaguers and Moms & Dads, and 1 year-old babies out to dance - Amazing!! Thank you!
Quang-Yuyen & Ithan Peltan, 9/3/11 wedding, Camp Joslin, Charlton, MA
All positive!! Music was important to us, and Scott was drama free, professional (well dressed, on time, friendly), willing to make quick changes, and he worked well with all staff and wedding guests.
Amanda Brennan, 8/14/11 wedding, Codman Estate, Lincoln, MA
Scott was great, I had no idea what time it was and he helped move us along to the party. We danced all night and we still are getting comments that our wedding was so much fun. We agree, thanks Scott!
Sarah & Mark Cutting, 7/16/11 wedding, Spring Hill, South Berwick, ME
Scott was wonderful! Everyone raved about his music choices. We were so happy we chose to work with you guys.
Casey Kennedy, 7/9/11 wedding, Elm Bank, Wellesley, MA
Scott was very professional, fun, understanding and personable. He even emailed while on vacation to ensure we were all set and stayed late at the reception! Highly recommended!
Jenna Martin, 7/30/11 wedding, Belle Mer, Newport, RI
We were so pleased with the music played by Scott for our cocktail hour & reception. He did a fantastic job and the night went so smoothly. Our guests loved the music and danced for hours. So many people have complimented Scott and Murray Hill on a very fun night & great songs @ atmosphere during our wedding. Thank you!
Laura & Pat Kenney, 6/25/11 wedding, Inn On Peaks, Peaks Island, ME
Scott was awesome. As the bride, I had several song requests that I gave to Scott ahead of time and he played every single one of them. I would also like to highlight Tome Pendergast from Murray Hill Talent who played guitar at our ceremony. He was great to work with and his music that day was beautiful. Between Scott & Tom I would not have changed a thing!
Amy & Tad Domagala, 8/12/11 wedding, Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham, MA
Scott was incredible. He was easy to contact in the days leading up to the wedding and was very kind and understanding. We gave him our wide array of music tastes and he took it and created a perfect soundtrack to make our wedding flow. Our wedding was a huge success with a lot of help & style from Scott. I will recommend him to all my friends.
Kara & Jonah Temple, 6/11/11 wedding, Millennium Bostonian, Boston, MA
Everyone raved about the music! It was the best part of the wedding. Scott did an incredible job selecting songs that kept everyone dancing all night and incorporating all of our requests, while strictly adhering to our “please do not play” list. We’ve been asked by friends with upcoming weddings for Scott’s info and we’re happy to refer/recommend him!
Hilary & Joe Gibbons, 8/7/11 wedding, Willowdale Estate, Topsfield, MA
Scott was fabulous! He played exactly what we wanted, was very professional and friendly, and our guests danced until the very end. We will definitely be sure to recommend Scott in the future just as our friends did. Thank you!
Katy & Marcus Dandurand, 7/3/11 wedding, Seaport Hotel, Boston, MAScott was fantastic! He set the mood and created a great vibe early in the evening. Then he played awesome dance tunes into the night. We’ll definitely use you again!
Lisa Fitzgibons, 5/6/11 fundraiser, Ember, Marshfield, MAGreat job. Scott was very easy to work with and very nice. We will be sure to keep him in mind for the future.
Kareligh Antista, 5/21/11 private party, Boston University, Boston, MAScott was professional and very easy to work with. He made our wedding a success. Thank you again, Scott!
Liz & Bob Tobin, 5/21/11 wedding, Pierce House, Lincoln, MA“Dear Scott, Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful music!! You did a superb job! And you must have been so tired from the night before! We were so lucky to have found you! Wishing you and your family the best. Take good care of yourself. Let’s stay in touch. -Deb”
“Scott - Many guests also commented on how god you were. So glad we found you. We wish you health and happiness. With sincere thanks. -Dotty”
Dotty & Deb, 6/5/11 wedding, Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth, MAScott - Jonah and I cannot thank you enough for DJing our wedding. You were so professional and responsive and you handled all types of requests. Jonah and I felt that you truly understood our style, and added our requests to the rotation, but you also kept the dance floor full. You have a gift for reading a crowd. As I hope you could tell, our guests had a great time and much of that is thanks to you. Toward the end of the night, we even got my mom to start jumping with Katy Perry. Amazing. Thank you for orchestrating such a wonderful atmosphere. We are so appreciative.
Kara & Jonah Temple, 6/11/11 wedding, Millenium Bostonian Hotel, Boston, MAScott more than exceeded our expectations. Guests from young to old are still ranting & raving about how good Scott was. Many, many thumbs up!
Dan Bowles, 5/7/11 wedding, Hyatt Harborside Hotel, Boston, MADear Scott, We couldn’t help but notice that this wedding was full of miracles. You were one of them. The fact that you had the perfect demeanor (a subtle combination of hip, sophisticated, dignified, yet reverent) blew our minds. That you could track down every Bollywood song we requested pleased not just the two of us, but our relatives from India tremendously. It was an incredible surprise for them - many mentioned how much they appreciated hearing a few recognizable tunes. It was also miraculous to watch you weave seamlessly in and out of our song requests as you artfully read the vibe of the room. And lastly, your interest in actually understanding who we are and what this wedding means to us was truly rare and precious thing. We’re definitely atypical in many ways, but instead of allowing us to feel like outsiders at our own wedding, you helped us claim it as our own. An adequate thanks is impossible, but perhaps you get the idea. We were honored to have you work with us and wish you all the best.
Caitie & Milan Daphtary, 3/25/11 wedding, Cafe Escadrille, Burlington, MAScott, I am finally getting a quiet moment to write some thank you notes and you are very high on my list. I will admit when Elizabeth and Tom insisted on having a DJ, I was skeptical. I am of the old school who has a live band to these functions but it was, after all, their wedding. I must say you made me a convert. You were superb! I can’t believe how hard you worked to keep people dancing. The mix of songs was fantastic. I think you had a very tough crowd. First because we only had 100 people to begin with and second because half of those came from overseas and had a different agenda - old friends to see, news to catch up on - and dancing was only a smaller part of the festivities. I received numerous comments on how much fun everyone was having. I think you did a terrific job. Thanks again! Tina Clark (MOB), 10/23/10 wedding, Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham, MAWe enjoyed working with Scott - he was very professional and easy to get along with. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music! Overall we are very happy we chose your agency and would recommend your services to others in the future. TRichelle Berard & Jun Shik Whang, 10/2/10 wedding, Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, Cambridge, MAScott was beyond amazing! My husband was afraid he wasn’t going to hear any of “his” music and was ecstatic to hear his requests during dinner, as were others! There was not one song I didn’t like or LOVE for that matter. I think a huge part of a wedding is the DJ and Scott just knew exactly how to make the night perfect! I wish and hope I can work with him again. I cannot thank him enough, we have received so many compliments and praise! I have already referred Scott to a friend. If you want a review online anywhere, Scott, let me know. Thanks again for everything! Kara & Bob Wheway, 8.22.10 wedding, Cruiseport, Gloucester, MAScott, We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding celebration such a wonderful time for everyone! We continue to get phone calls about how much fun everyone had - from our younger relatives (10 year olds) to our 60+ year old friends!!! You got everyone up and dancing and they never stopped until the night was over!!! Thank you, Scott. You helped add such wonderful memories to Lindsey and John's Wedding Day! Much happiness to you and your fiance - we wish you a wonderful wedding day and many years of health and happiness. - Judy and Bill Boyle (parents of the bride) Hi Scott, Just wanted to thank you for the phenomenal job you did at our wedding. The music selections were perfect. We cannot believe some of the people who hit the dance floor and how full the dance floor was all night. People keep telling us what a great time they had at the wedding and our sister’s friends want your playlist! If you ever need references for potential clients please feel free to use us. Thank you again and best of luck with your own wedding later this month! Lindsey & John McKee, 8.28.10 wedding, Hellenic Center, Ipswich, MAScott was incredibly easy to work with. I told him my ideas about what I would like and he went above and beyond to fulfill them. He was excellent!! I would recommend him to anyone who had an event to host. I’m so glad he was there for our special day - he made everything run so much smoother than I could have imagined. Sarah Leonard, 8.13.10 wedding, Barn at Gibbet Hill, Groton, MA
