    Definitely Recommend

    Dave Shannon was wonderful to work with ! Extremely easy to contact at any hour. Had lots of songs to choose from for the ceremony and reception. Was on time !! Stuck around at the end of the night to chat with my husband and myself. Dave is an all around easy going and relaxed guy. He was able to play requested cultural songs along with anything our guests requested. He dressed professional and everyone was very happy with the service he provided ! Thank you Dave !!!!!

    We danced the night away!

    Dave took the time to understand what we were looking for from his DJ and MC service. He made sure everyone was out on the dance floor all night! He knows how to read a room and took the pressure off us so we didn't have to ask one of our guests to MC. He was the perfect choice for our wedding!

    Went above and beyond

    Dave was the DJ at one of my friend's wedding and was highly recommended. Throughout the entire process, from the initial meeting to the wedding day, Dave went above and beyond and did not disappoint. Dave was always very accommodating and met me at both my ceremony and reception venues ahead of time to make sure everything would be set up perfectly. My father composed and recorded music to play at the ceremony and performed live at the reception and Dave spent lots of time communicating back and forth to ensure everything was exactly as my father hoped. Dave was friendly, considerate and professional and was an integral part of making our wedding day so special. I would highly recommend!

    Simply the Best There Is!

    Dave is as professional and experienced there is when it comes to being a DJ. He was extremely helpful with planning all my songs and staying on top of everything as the day went on. Even talked to us for a while after we shut her down at night, which not all DJs do. He seemed more like a friend than someone we hired. That helped make the day go as perfect as it could have possibly been! Huge thank you to Dave! I highly recommend his business for any event.
