I believe your event should be about you.

I've been there, the DJ steals the show, cracks bad jokes, and acts like he's the center of attention. That isn't me. I work hard to create a great environment that reflects you and keeps the spotlight on you.


About Me

My name is Dave Stephens and I work for 104.9 The River in Columbus, OH. In addition to my work at the River, I also DJ weddings and other events. Though most of my work is weddings I have also performed at banquets, fundraisers, birthday parties, and even church daddy-daughter dances, power lifting competitions and a Biker Blessing. I will happily tailor my playlist and services to your needs.

My hope is to provide you with a personal, fun and professional service that will represent you well, and make sure everyone has a good time.

What you can expect from me

Your event will always be YOUR event: I work hard to make sure there are no surprises, and will work with you to pick as much or as little of the music as you like.

Clean Entertainment: I don't just listen to music so I know where the 4-letter words are, I also listen for the content. Lets not play a song all about cheating on your girlfriend at a wedding. I'll also keep everything I say and do professional.

Chloe – Bride

We LOVED having Dave as our DJ! He did a phenomenal job of being prepared beforehand, and helping us plan out our perfect reception. He took all our song suggestions, and even helped to compile them through a thorough questionnaire.

We got tons of compliments at our reception about how well he handled the music, announcements and games. He had a great mix of slow songs, fun songs and dancing songs! Almost everyone was on the dance floor! (Including my parents!) I would highly recommend Dave’s services. He even traveled to Rochester, NY for our wedding 🙂

Alise – Bride

Dave did a wonderful job for us! He was so professional and extremely prepared. He kept the evening moving exactly how we wanted it and did not make it about him (as many DJs do). Even our bridal party commented to us how great he was!

Jim Sawin – Groom

My wife and I had a fantastic experience with Dave and Stephens Audio at our wedding. Dave went above and beyond in his preparation for our wedding. He met with us multiple times to go over music selection, ceremony experience, etc. He even bought a number of songs off of itunes for us that we wanted that he did not have yet in his own collection. Dave is very friendly and personable and puts his client’s first. He is also very affordable. I give Stephens Audio a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend Dave to anyone seeking a high-quality DJ.

Grace Shinault – Bride

Stephens Audio took care of the music for my husband and I at our wedding reception last year. Dave did an amazing job. The playlist was a great mix that had even my mother out on the dance floor! A first time for everything! I would definitely recommend them for any event!

Amanda Robinette – Bride

I hired Dave to serve as the DJ at my wedding reception. Dave was extremely professional from the beginning to the end of the process, and he did an exemplary job the day of the wedding. Dave listened to my specific music requests and made sure to play my favorite songs, and he used great judgment to perfectly tailor the other music to appeal to a wide variety of my guests. I really appreciated his attentiveness at the reception – Dave was quick to lower the music volume if the room was getting too loud or raise it if things were a little too quiet. In addition, Dave’s “DJ voice” is perfect, and he has the ability to quickly and effectively communicate important information to guests. Overall, I received several compliments from my guests on Dave’s great work, and I was extremely pleased as well. I would highly recommend Dave for someone looking for an upbeat, hard-working, family-friendly DJ for any event.

Robert and Sarah Quick – Parents of the Bride

This letter is to let you know how much my family appreciated the DJ job you did for our daughter’s wedding. I was impressed with the mix of music and your sense of knowing what the audience wanted to hear and when. Your timing was excellent. I like the fact that your music was in the background and not overbearing. We were able to carry on conversations with each other and still hear the music. When the music had to be up front and center; you were right on queue. As your business continues to grow, we wish you well and know you will make many customers very happy. Should you need a reference, give my name out freely. I heartily recommend your services to anyone.

Ruth Fischer – 60th Birthday Party

You Really made my birthday extra special! You also impressed many guests who asked who you are or told me of positive experiences they enjoyed while visiting with you! Thanks!
