Offered by the SCE Event Group in increments of 2 with a maximum of 12 units  - this cost effective and safe pyro effect has created an incredible buzz in the New Jersey Wedding and Party market.  If you are interested in obtaining a quotation on the spark units for your upcoming event or celebration, please contact the SCE Event Group. 

Check out this video of Jason Jani of the SCE Event Group talking about the Safe indoor Spark Fountains

The technology itself is incredible and replaces a traditional spark fountain display that typically burns at twelve hundred (1200+) plus degrees, by creating a cold spark that produces the effect at the temperature of sixty-two degrees. There are numerous benefits of these new spark units - like the ability to control the height, duration and pattern of the spark fountains with the units technician utilizing a special control box.  The sparks generated by the units produce no smoke, do not cause any smell and are completely non-toxic.  The units are controlled by a professionally trained SCE technician that has been certified by the manufacturer of the units and has undergone extensive safety training for operation.  Speaking of certification, the units owned and operated by SCE have been certified by the CSA organization, and this is important for insurance reasons and piece of mind for the safety of the guests in attendace and venue itself (there also is a knock off brand or two on the market that has not gone through the extensive government controlled process).

Jason Jani SCE - Avalon - Moheghan Sun

My journey. 7 Years of SCE. Authored by Jason Jani.

My journey. 7 Years of SCE.  Authored by Jason Jani.

This morning I woke up and was reminded of how incredibly fortunate we are at SCE.  Seven years ago today, I left a successful path working in corporate america as a manager of an engineering team to pursue the dream of doing really cool events for super cool couples. Without a business plan, and the thought of creating a company, SCE was started after years of working independently and for others.  I wanted to do more for the couples and companies that trusted me with some of their coveted life events.

SCE Event Group Takes the #MBLV20 DJ Conference to the Next Level: Mobile Beat Las Vegas

For the second year in a row, Jason Jani and the SCE Event Group helped produce the largest Private Event DJ Conference in the world - Mobile Beat Las Vegas - #MBLV20.  The conference was held in at the Tropicana resort in Las Vegas - March 13th - 17th, 2016. 

Jason Jani served as the Entertainment Director as well as the on stage performance DJ for the entire event.  This show was a milestone for Mobile Beat Las Vegas (MBLV) as they were celebrating its 20th year of hosting the Las Vegas based get-together and the 25th year of the actual magazine.  In addition to Jason Jani, SCE also used Jeff Scott Gould and Joe Pags for Event Capture, and Tony Tee Neto for voice over production. 

The production value was top notch with professionally-programmed intelligent lighting designed by Jeremy Brecht and the Chauvet DJ team, large projection screens to simulcast presenters, sound provided by Electro Voice and outstanding content from a list of speakers that brought an immense amount of information to the audience of DJs from around the world. Attendance was exceptional with nearly 1500+ DJs, private event company owners, and employees soaking in knowledge over the 4-day event.

Jason & the SCE team worked tirelessly in the weeks and months leading up to the conference on securing high-profile keynote speakers, celebrity acts, music programming between presenters, and even an introduction video looking back through the years of highlights from the past conferences.  Attendees were treated to visuals showcasing Vegas’ history leading up to and including a montage of MBLV’s 20-year history, all presented with a Rat Pack kind of vibe.

Jason opened the conference musically with his signature-style Open Format program, engaging everyone from the beginning. Set up at center stage, the performance DJ role was truly was a focus over all four days for the attendees.

SCE also created the opening video segment that was synchronized with live interactive hosting and performance segments, including SCE’s Tony Tee Neto.  Clips of Frank & Elvis performances were augmented by real-life impersonators around the room and a awesome lighting ambience that blended seemless into the video visual content. 

It wasn’t long before there was a “battle of skills” on the turntables (or lack thereof!) with Entertainment Experience cofounder Bill Hermann. Engaging, funny, and self-deprecating, it was a great way to start things off.

One of Jason’s (and the conference’s) highlights came on Day 2, when he was able to have an honest and enlightening on-stage interview with LMFAO’s Redfoo (did you know he’s Berry Gordy’s son?!). ‘Foo discussed everything from how he got started producing music, to his ‘process,’ to branding and being the “Ultimate Party Rocker!”  The actual interview from this segment will be posted soon on our site and mixcloud page. 

Another major highlight was the VIP performance event that featured Redfoo and his Party Rock Crew, VIC (known for his song "The Wobble") and SCE's Jason Jani. Jason opened the event, played in between artist performances and hosted the event.  We have included a segment of his opening open format set below for you to hear.

Presentations at #MBLV20 spanned a wide range of topics from marketing to bookkeeping practices, branding to mixing techniques, and everything in between. Every speaker offered something to make each professional better— perspective, technique, style. 

Another highlight was Bar Rescue’s John Taffer speaking for an hour from his perspective. Having owned several bars and other businesses, he brought an informed, passionate, and direct conversation that hit to the heart of what we do!

In addition, Jeff Scott Gould and Joe Pags were n site to capture the action with the SCE Media crew.  The conference ended with an SCE total event recap which incorporated all of the call out items of the 4 day conference and wrapped it into a 3 minute video.  The video wowed the attendees as the perfect way to end an awesome experience.  

If you want to get an idea of how it all looked from the inside, simply click or search #MBLV or check out the recap video produce by SCE and that we have posted below.

Check out this recap from the 2016 Mobile Beat Expo held at the Tropicana, Las Vegas. This conference has become the leading resource for DJs in the private event industry, and is attended by professionals from every continent around the world.

We’re so proud to have been a part of this conference for another year. Thanks to all the professionals who complimented our production online and in person. The members of SCE work hard to break the stereotype and raise the bar of the entertainment industry.

How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 5 of 5

_______________ How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 5 of 5

by Tony Tee Neto: SCE Event Host & Audio Specialist

By the final part in this series, you’ve chosen a few candidates to host your wedding celebration. And in the end, it really is about the music bringing everyone together for an amazing time!

You love music?! SO DO WE! It’s actually at the core of our lives, considering we pack dance floors weekend after weekend for a living.

So when it’s finally time to wrap up planning, definitely review every detail. But ...

  • 5- Don’t Try to Program 4 Hours of Music

There are two extremes when it comes to choosing music for your reception, and neither is necessarily a good approach to programming the event.  At one end, you personally need to plan every song, maybe even certain ones in a particular order! And at the opposite end, your DJ won’t allow any input from you and is certain that last week’s playlist will hit a home run … just like the week before.

In both of these cases, neither party is allowing for any organic flow during the reception. If the couple has given an exhaustive list to the DJ that programs exactly 4 or 5 hours, they’ve eliminated the very reason for getting a trusted entertainer behind the music … or any human, for that matter.

When this is the case, there’s no room for moments to evolve, and your DJ’s creativity is completely restricted. Not to mention, you’ve created a lot of work for yourself in the process. This often comes from misunderstanding the role of your wedding entertainment, and what they can actually bring to the table to make your reception a success, besides “just playing any song.” And if it comes from the perspective that you don’t trust what they will play, then you should go back to the first part of this article and start the search over.

Conversely, your DJ should ask for input on your taste and style of music. If not, then I’m sure he does this every weekend, the exact same way, and he’s the “rockstar.”

But you probably didn’t want a “cookie cutter” for a DJ, right?

I’ll always ask for a Top 10 or so of “Must Play! I have to hear these songs at my wedding!” Those are the songs that make your reception, yours! Yes, I believe I bring plenty of experience to the table, but it’s important that I weave who you are into what I do! The event is yours, and it should reflect that.

I’ll even ask for a “Do Not Play these, because they’re nails on a chalkboard”-List. I don’t want to be murdered at the reception.

You should look for an exchange of ideas— and your choice in entertainment should also welcome that. By sharing your very special songs that trigger a memory, you’re giving us what we need so that we can use our experience to work them into what we do. And THAT’S how you get amazing moments that create unforgettable celebrations!

Hiring a professional wedding entertainer (and all other wedding professionals, too) allows for the ultimate goal: to have an amazing, stress-free wedding day! You work ridiculously hard to plan this once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and you should reap the rewards of an awesome day! By taking the time to ask the right questions and connect with the right professionals, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the day!

How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 4 of 5

_______________ How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 4 of 5

by Tony Tee Neto: SCE Event Host & Audio Specialist

So you’ve vetted your choices and narrowed down the candidates. You want to get to know them a little bit. Once you schedule that important meeting into your calendar, what can you expect?

  • 4- Our First Date: Let’s Get to Know Each Other

I doExpectations of first meetings with wedding entertainment can vary wildly. I’ve spoken with couples who think we’ll be talking about music for an hour. Most will also ask, “What are your packages?” You might even ask what I wear to the event! These are valid assumptions for topics of first meetings. But you should expect a little more out of your “first date.”

At SCE, we think that talking about your wedding celebration should be more than presenting packages, collecting a deposit, and eventually showing up to play music.

After a little small talk and establishing common ground, I simply pose a question: “So, what do you see for this celebration? Do you have a vision, or are you a blank canvas?”

And I wait.

Often, couples will be a little stumped, as they’re not prepared for such an open-ended question without direction. But shouldn’t you expect your entertainment to skew their approach to your vision, to make the event truly “yours?!”

If you’re not given the opportunity to share your thoughts, how would they know?

That gets back to how important it is to meet with your actual entertainer. Hopefully, you’ve found someone you really like, and you want to convey that you’d prefer a more subtle approach. Or even the opposite, where you want it completely over the top … and they need to know that!

This really should be a first date, as we get to know you and you get to know what we bring to your event. In the end, you should have a pretty good idea whether or not your (potential) entertainer “gets it.”

By the way, if you’re a “blank canvas,” it’s perfectly fine. The SCE Team and I  understand that you become an instant “party planner” overnight, and we’re psyched to help. I personally love sharing thoughts, perspective, giving suggestions, and helping you decide on options. Because ultimately, it’s not about just playing music for a few hours. It’s about creating a great experience as you plan, and eventually executing an amazing celebration for all.

How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 3 of 5

How much is a wedding dj in NJ How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 3 of 5

by Tony Tee Neto: SCE Event Host & Audio Specialist

So far, I’ve given you a couple of thoughts on how you might choose the right entertainment company for your wedding celebration. Starting the process by doing a little research on them is a great first step in narrowing down the search. And setting up a get-together with the actual person who’ll be responsible for bringing your guests together on the dance floor will help determine if there’s chemistry.

But maybe just one more question before confirming that meeting ...

  • 3- Full-Time or Part-Time?

Once you’ve found a candidate to host your celebration, make sure to ask whether your entertainer is a full-time wedding professional, or if he does it “on the side.” There are plenty of newcomers and even some experienced DJs who have regular employment and play weddings on the weekend. Maybe they do it as a hobby or for extra money.

We completely understand, and we’re not knocking it.

It could become an issue, however, when it comes to timeliness in communication and responding to your emails or phone calls. A response from his “daytime desk while the boss isn’t around” isn’t really professional, nor does it exude confidence that they’re paying attention to your needs. Perhaps paperwork gets misplaced or lost in the shuffle without a dedicated work space on their part. Maybe details get overlooked because of lack of focus on your event.

Very often, this is also the biggest factor in determining your entertainment’s cost. When your DJ is lightly invested in your event and treats it like “extra money,” they will usually charge accordingly.

On the other hand, a full-time, reputable wedding professional is completely dedicated to their clients’ satisfaction and dependent on making that day a complete success!

The point is that your wedding entertainment professionals should take your celebration details as seriously as you do. Speaking personally, this is my livelihood. It’s my career. So our reputation depends on planning and playing an amazing celebration with our Rockstar couples!

How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 2 of 5

How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 2 of 5by Tony Tee Neto: SCE Event Host & Audio Specialist

In the last segment (IF YOU MISSED IT CLICK HERE), I stressed how important it was to start off by vetting your entertainment professional. Exploring your network and doing a little research can help you find just the right one to make your celebration amazing and stress-free.

Once you’ve found a likely candidate, make that call, send that email, and set up a chat to get to know each other. Most companies will encourage a face-to-face meeting at their office, like we do at SCE. But we understand that everyone’s time is valuable, and this is a pretty busy period in your life on top of your regular day-to-day. So, we happily entertain FaceTime or Skype calls. It’s almost as good as being there in person, and you can be in your most comfortable (and convenient) surroundings. Even a phone call can tell you a lot about whether you’re a good fit.

So, when you do set up that date ...

Confirm who you’re meeting

We’re proud of the fact that when you decide to meet one of SCE’s talented professionals, you’ll be meeting the Event Host of your choice-- the very same one who’ll be with you during your planning process; and the one who will be there for you on the big day! We think it’s so important to explore chemistry and establish a relationship right from the start, and I personally love this part. At SCE, we dont do sales people, we dont try to push you into decisions that you may not be ready to make.  We want you to learn about who we are, how we are able to do what we do, maybe even show you recent video footage of us in action at your venue and of course, answer any questions you may have about the celebration that we can.

You might find that another company has set an appointment with a salesperson. If you’re comfortable with that, then treat this as an informational session. Get a feel for how the company does business, their approach to planning your celebration, etc. It’s still a good idea to meet your actual DJ/MC. Everyone’s personality might not click right away, so explore the relationship.

When any one of SCE’s Event Hosts, receives the honor of hosting your celebration, we consider it a huge compliment! The moment we grab the microphone and welcome your guests on your behalf, we become your ambassador at one of the most important celebrations you’ll ever plan.

Your choice of Master of Ceremonies and DJ ultimately reflects on you, so get to know each other a little bit and make sure you’re comfortable with your choice. And it all starts with that first handshake.

How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 1 of 5

The-Madison-Hotel_Endless-Wave-Studios12312014034 How to find the right DJ Entertainment: Part 1 of 5

by Tony Tee Neto: SCE Event Host & Audio Specialist 

You’re engaged?! CONGRATULATIONS!

The excitement of the moment is overwhelming, and soon (or even immediately), you’re surrounded by friends and family who want to celebrate the moment with you both! Champagne; tight, warm hugs; smiles and bright eyes everywhere!

Planning this once-in-a-lifetime celebration is all at once exciting and overwhelming. With so many choices in Wedding Professionals, how do you figure out which one’s right for you?

You’ll find yourself faced with a seemingly endless array of choices for your DJ entertainment, with variables in every aspect— from pricing to experience, deposit requirements to payment schedules, from packages to an A La Carte approach … right down to how much say you have in the music to be played.

Over the next few articles, I hope to give you a little guidance on what to look for in our particular are of expertise: DJ Wedding Entertainment. I’ll keep it pretty simple, and welcome your questions and feedback to tony@sceeventgroup.com.

So …

  • Finding the Right DJ Entertainment, Part 1- Vet your entertainment

With so many choices, how do you know who’s who and who’s worth your time?

  • Your friends - Your friends’ experiences with their entertainment is probably one of the most reliable testimonials you can get. Maybe they had a phenomenal experience and are raving about who hosted and played for their event ... perfect! On the other hand, it’s also invaluable advice if they had an experience that was less than excellent.
  • Facebook - the great thing about this Social Network is that, depending on privacy settings, you’ve got access to your Friends and your Friends’ Friends! One post could potentially reach a lot of people you don’t even personally know, and they might have some great advice for you. Ask them to leave referrals or advice in comments. Encourage more sensitive comments to go via Private Messaging.
  • The Knot and Wedding Wire - These wedding-oriented forums are a great resource for word-of-mouth testimonials from past Brides and Grooms, and not just for entertainment! When targeting a particular professional, get a feel for consistency throughout all of their reviews; one excellent review shouldn’t cut it. For example, SCE has around 900 reviews! You’ll want to look for what’s consistently being said about your potential wedding professional. If you’re looking for a particular entertainer within the company’s reviews, simply Command-F (Mac) or Control-F (Windows) in the browser, and you should be able to search a name within the page.
  • Google is your best friend! - We understand the power of the Internet Search Engine, and we’re sure you do, too. When you search for either general terms or specific companies or entertainers, you’ll get a ton of results. Take the time to check each site, and see if they match your vibe. And when you find those slick “demos,” watch them for consistency. Better yet, look for vLogs (video blogs) that show the entertainer in their “natural habitat!” This is your opportunity to peek into one of our events ... without actually crashing the wedding! These will come through Google results, and likely take you to YouTube, Vimeo, or a specific website’s link.

Dig plenty in the beginning! This is the first but massively important step in choosing the right entertainment for your once-in-a-lifetime celebration!

Jason Jani - Wedding Entertainment Director - Wed Guild - NJ Wedding Entertainment

We are delighted to announce that SCE Event Group founder, Jason Jani has earned the international Master of Ceremonies honor with admission to the WED Guild® and title of  Wedding Entertainment Director®.

The WED Guild® is an internationally industry respected organization that was created by Peter Merry in 2001.  The WED Guild® was created in hopes of changing the public’s "sometimes" negative perception of wedding DJs.  The title of Wedding Entertainment Director® was used as opposed to DJ focused terminology  because the role of a certified Wedding Entertainment Director® expands well beyond just playing music and/or making announcements as the Master of Ceremonies.  The Wedding Entertainment Director®is about the ability to produce incredible events by delivering the very best quality in service and all around performance.

Becoming a Wedding Entertainment Director® is no easy task, and only 24 people currently hold this prestigious title in the wedding entertainment industry, internationally.   The WED Guild®'s application process is an in-depth journey to identify an exceptional Masters of Ceremonies using a peer-reviewed analysis that includes many layers like reviewing essays, past event video samples, previous client and industry colleague recommendation letters, and a final interview consisting of 5 members of the current WED Guild® talent roster and the current term president of the group (see the full application at http://wedguild.com/ftp/WEDGapplication.pdf).  

Jason Jani of the SCE Event Group noted about the process, "The process to become a Wedding Entertainment Director® was not easy, it really made me look at things I have done for my couples in a different light".  "It's the beginning of a new journey for me in this profession... it allows my couples to know that I am committed to continuing my education and training in this industry, and will open up in terms of creativity options for my personal performance events.", says Jani.

To summarize the qualities needed to obtain this prestigious accomplishment and title, WED Guild® members are evaluated on the 7 essential areas of expertise needed to obtain the prestigious title of a Wedding Entertainment Director®: Comprehensive Personalization, Creative Involvement, Event Direction, Talent as a Spokesperson, Music Programming, Appropriate Presentation, and Quality Amplification.
