About Us

After all, what’s the one thing people remember about your event days, weeks or even years later? It’s not the dinner or the dessert. It’s the entertainment!!!

Sam Samperi, known as DJ Double S formerly on Toronto’s radio airwaves and club scene, is the owner of Soirée Entertainment. Sam’s experience as a DJ is his asset. He attributes his success to his versatility. What Sam has always adored about DJ’n is competent mixing and creative programming. It’s his outlet for exploring science and philosophy, summed up nicely when he states genres can be transcended but must be done correctly. Known for his diverse music library, he plays good music well.

Music has always been part of Sam’s life. Growing up with three siblings, he was exposed to different types of music at a young age. Not to mention his late father was a drummer. At the age of 16, Sam was given a mixer, turntable and cd player from his parents. From then on, his bedroom became a training ground for his eclectic sound. By the time Sam was a senior in high school, he was playing for his peers at school functions and quickly gained residencies at two local bars. Taking his career a step further, DJ Double S was introduced to the wedding industry.

Flavoring and spicing the Soirée with his unique style of custom edits and mash-ups, Sam is a DJ who does it all. His combination of turntable skills and tasteful music selection helped him acquire numerous residencies across the GTA. However, that wasn’t enough for Sam so he transitioned his way into radio by landing a job as a Morning Show Producer for Toronto’s Contemporary Hit Radio Station Z1035. While working for Z, Sam also Deejayed Live-To-Airs and produced/mixed the Z Morning Mix from Monday to Friday on Scott Fox and The Z1035 Morning Show.

“Performing in nightclubs to Toronto Radio and everything in between, I’ve been fortunate to do it all. I know what works and how to keep a crowd entertained all night and into the morning. The skills I’ve acquired throughout this incredible journey make me one of the most versatile Wedding DJs in Toronto!”

WEDDING & SERVICES

WEDDINGS

Want a packed dance floor, great music, and no “cheesy DJ gimmicks?”  Soirée Entertainment has the right talent and determination to outperform your expectations.  Owned and operated by Sam Samperi (DJ Double S), Soirée Entertainment provides a higher level of professional wedding DJ entertainment to the GTA.  We see no barriers in making your wedding day exceptional and we feel honored, privileged, and humbled to have the opportunity.

SOIRÉE MUSIC

All events have a custom playlist to suit your preference in music.  The volume is always at a comfortable level.  Songs are seamlessly mixed on the fly to keep the energy and momentum on the dance floor.  Soirée Entertainment DJs are trained to “read” the crowd and keep the dance floor packed.  Ceremony and cocktail music is also available.

UPLIGHTING

Dress the room to match the occasion.  Perhaps the most frequently overlooked element of wedding design, LED Uplighting creates a beautiful atmosphere by adding colors to your walls.  Whether you want to highlight a particular feature in a room or wash an entire wall, we do it all.  We can match just about any colour of your choice.  Colour sequencing is also available (have the room slowly fade through the colours).

SOIRÉE DJ BOOTH

With a potent mix of originality and creativity, Soirée Entertainment has brought the DJ Booth to a whole new level.  Our stylish and exclusive DJ Booth is just over eight feet in length and illuminated with four uplights making it the focal point of your dance floor.  Make your unforgettable event unique by adding our original DJ Booth concept to your entertainment package!

SOIRÉE EQUIPMENT

Soirée Entertainment is able to provide a state of the art sound system big enough for 500 people with a focus on audio quality, clean cable management and a properly focused setup.  For larger events we can work together to find the best and most cost-effective solution.

INTEL LIGHTING

Add some energy to your dance floor with Soirée Entertainment Intelligent Lighting.  Light Specialists control the look and feel of the lights throughout your event.  A warm glow during your father-daughter dance, a spotlight singling out the best man’s toast, or club-like atmosphere on the dance floor, we can do it all.    Our lights move in sync with the music, fast or slow. Our lighting designs are managed by experts who know that proper lighting can draw the crowd in to those emotional and moving moments or have guests show their wild and fun side.  Custom lighting production takes your wedding reception to another level.

MEDIA

ITS ALL IN THE MIX

There’s more to being a wedding DJ in Toronto than just pressing play.  Knowing which songs to play, when to play them and how to mix, blend or transition from one song to another comes with experience.  Here are examples of why mixing is important.

Sam was an absolute pleasure to work with and helped make our day perfect! From our first planning session until the wedding day, he was incredibly organized and asked all the questions I forgot to. All of our guests loved the music and were on the dance floor all night long. Everyone had a great time and he did a fabulous job making sure we were happy throughout the night. Sam even stayed a bit later to make sure that the final song(s) was perfect. We are still getting complements from our family and friends. Thank you again for a job well done!

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe your DJ Style

Our DJ style is simple: No cheesy vests or over-talking DJ’s who love the sound of their voice. Instead, we pride ourselves on offering a fresh and contemporary approach with a clean and polished image. Our emcee approach is effective, concise and straight to the point without lots of unnecessary chatter. Our DJs mix music in a seamless fashion for the best dancing experience and provide no barriers on what they will play at your corporate event or wedding. Whether it’s spinning party classics, beat-mixing Top 40/ House/Hip-hop/Country/Mash Up, catering to an ethnic crowd (Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.) or anything in between, we can tailor our style to fit your needs!

 

Are we able to meet the DJ before booking?

Absolutely. In fact, this is something that we highly recommend. There’s no better way to see if someone is the right DJ for you without an in-person consultation. A DJ’s personality, attitude and appearance reflect your taste and style and should definitely be a part of your decision-making!

 

Do you provide DJ and Emcee services?

Absolutely. Our DJ’s are not only masters of music but also act as the Master of Ceremonies handling all of your emcee needs. Whether you want mostly music and minimal talk, lots of Emcee interaction or even game hosting, our DJ’s know how to tastefully do both.

 

Will you talk and make announcements?

Yes, we are not only the DJ, but also the Master of Ceremonies. As seasoned professionals, we clearly and confidently handle all microphone duties in a clear and presentable fashion.

 

How much of the music do we get to choose?

We’ve had clients that have chosen every song for the entire event and others that have left the music selection completely up to us. Our recommendation is to provide us with a list of 10-20 “must play” songs that you would like to hear at your own event. This will leave plenty of room for your DJ to play to the crowd!

 

Can we submit a Do-Not-Play list?

Absolutely! Sometimes the do-not-play list is as equally important to the “Must Play” list. There may be specific songs or artists you do not like and wish to be excluded from your event. Any specific songs or general types of music you do not want played should go on your “do not play” list. Rest assured that if a guest requests a song that is on your “do not play” list, it will not be played!

 

What is Beat Mixing? Why does it matter at my wedding?

Beat mixing/matching is an exciting way of mixing one song into another. Many mobile DJs will let Song A completely fade out, then press play on Song B. The result? Energy and momentum on the dance floor is lost. One of the biggest reasons wedding DJs SHOULD be hired in the first place is to keep your guests entertained and dancing throughout the night. Unfortunately, most wedding DJs either can’t or don’t know how to beat mix, or try to do and it ends up sounding like a mess. Take a listen to our seamless mixes right here!

 

Can we use our family/friend MC?

Of course!

 

Can we see you perform at an upcoming event?

There might be instances of public appearances but most of our clients hire us for their private Soirée. We respect our clients’ privacy by not conducting outside business at their special event. We can possibly arrange a reception site visit during the hours of an event set-up to see our lighting and audio equipment in action. No visit will be allowed during the hours of a wedding however. In the meantime, take a listen to some of our mixes!

 

Do you provide a contract or written agreement?

Absolutely. Our contract is straightforward and written in plain English so that you can understand the terms before signing. It is signed by both parties and offers you a high level of protection and dependability. With the contract you can be assured that there will be no hidden extra charges or kinder surprises at your event. The signed contract and deposit officially reserves your date and an executed copy will be given to you for your records. If you have any questions or concerns about the terms, just ask!

 

When do we meet with our DJ to discuss our agenda?

We will reach out to you via email to set a final agenda meeting with you and your DJ approximately one month prior to your event.

 

When does our agenda need to be completed?

Once all of your special songs have been finalized, please submit your agenda to: sam@soireedjs.com no later than 10 days before your Event. If your agenda is not submitted within this time frame, Soirée Entertainment will not be responsible if your specific music requests cannot be met. Minor agenda changes that are not music related can be communicated with your DJ the day of.

 

Should we bring a copy of our agenda to our agenda meeting?

Yes!  To ensure your meeting will be as productive as possible, a hard copy must be brought to the meeting and an email copy must be sent to sam@soireedjs.com. Any changes or suggestions can be made at the time of your agenda meeting.

 

Do you have ethnic music?

Our music library consists of both popular and traditional music from many cultures including Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek. Any specific music requests must be provided to us, by the client, no later than 10 days before your event.

 

Will you take care of any cultural requirements we have?

Of course! However, we kindly ask that you specify your requests during your initial consultation with us.

 

We are not sure which songs to choose for our introductions, garter, bouquet etc. Can we leave that up to the DJ to decide?

Yes, let Soirée Entertainment select what works!

 

Do we select our own Intro Music?

This is entirely up to you. You can choose your own music or let your Soirée DJ choose appropriate upbeat music for you!

 

We have certain music that we need you to play at the event. Is that possible?

Yes. Please ensure the music has been submitted to our office at least 10 days prior to your event to test for quality and compatibility.  Music is to be provided on USB key saved as mp3, wav or m4a (iTunes format).
