Harmony in Every Note: 5150 Entertainment and DJ Shawn – The Pinnacle of Wedding Perfection!

Tying the knot last Oct, we were incredibly fortunate to choose 5150 Entertainment and have the talented Shawn as our DJ. Amidst a whirlwind planning process, Shawn emerged as the clear standout among the 40 DJs we considered, ultimately claiming the top spot in our selection.

Shawn's dedication to perfection in every detail was evident from the start. Despite the time crunch, he invested countless hours, offering a level of commitment that went beyond just music. The meticulous planning, frequent Zoom calls, phone conversations, and text exchanges showcased his unwavering dedication to making our day extraordinary.

When the big day arrived, Shawn exceeded our wildest expectations. Handling the complexities of our mixed cultural wedding seamlessly, he curated a music mix that resonated with everyone, ensuring the celebration remained vibrant throughout. As both DJ and MC, Shawn's flawless announcements and interactions with our guests added an extra layer of magic to the festivities.

For anyone seeking a 5-star DJ with impeccable music taste, unparalleled entertainment skills, and a commitment to flawless execution, look no further than 5150 Entertainment and the incredible Shawn. Trust us; choosing him will elevate your wedding experience to unforgettable heights. Highly recommended!
Cheers, J&H!

It was ok, not what it was hyped up to be

Well, a few issues came up. Our wedding party entrance song was right, but wasn't changed to our wedding couple entrance song so we ended up walking in to I'm too sexy instead of a romantic entrance song.
Our choreographed first dance song wasn't started on time and jumped ahead - twice - so I actually had to stop and walk over and help him with playing it, which then worked out well. He didn't want us to give him a play list because he wanted to feel out the crowd (despite us submitting songs at his request in advance) and we ended up having no one dancing most of the night so he then asked our wedding party to create playlists for him. He said he would give us $50 that night / put it in the card box for having made a referral for him that booked with him but he didn't follow through.

Wouldn't book with him again. Really nice guy, I'm easy going so I'm not upset or anything, but I wouldn't book with him again.

We can’t recommend enough!

If you were looking for a wedding, DJ that will keep the party happening, look no further than hiring Shawn from 5150 Entertainment. It was so important to us to hire a DJ that would play music that would bring the whole wedding to life, keep the guests singing and dancing, and Shawn did exactly that. Our dance floor was packed until the very end of the night, and everyone was dancing from young to elderly. He was also incredibly responsive during the planning process and met with us a handful of times. We can’t recommend him enough.

Excellent and Recommended Wedding DJ

Shawn (DJ 5150) was outstanding as the DJ for our wedding. We were coming from Saskatchewan, so most of our inital interactions with Shawn were remote. He was excellent to work with and the alignment/communication was easy. He handled all aspects of the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dance flawlessly. We could not be more impressed with him, and many of our guests went out of their way to comment on what a great DJ we had. Shawn's prices were very fair, and we would strongly recommend him for any type of event. He showed up early, and left late! A great guy and a talented DJ. Thanks Shawn - Jen and Logan from Saskatoon.

Best he is at what he does

Shawn is absolutely the best there is. He kept tge dance floor packed all through the night! He was able to keep up easily with our guests requests, and kept us all entertained for the whole evening of our wedding. Infact we also used 5150s services for a Christmas party as well.

Dj shawn rocks!

We interviewed a few different DJs for our wedding, and were looking for someone who would also act as MC for the reception. Nobody impressed us more than Shawn. He was charasmatic, funny, easy going yet very professional right off the hop, and that says alot when it's just a phone interview. We felt comfortable with Shawn right away to be tasked with such an important part of our day, especially being MC. Communication with Shawn was easy, email/phone/text. He was so helpful during the reception to keep us on track and keep things going. Eveyone seemed to really enjoy the music Shawn played too, all different ages alike. Thanks Shawn, it was a pleasure and we highly recommend Shawn's services to anyone!
