    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.

    Dave Shannon DJ's reply:

    Hi Kristy!

    Thank you so much for your kind Wedding Wire review. You and Steve are just two really great people. It's so amazing to meet a couple that I would choose as friends. So it seems like our review of each other is completely mutual then :-)

    Here's to the both of you!

    Easy to work with and plays great music

    We hired Dave cause we wanted a DJ who would be comfortable playing old time rock and roll, country and of course the wedding classics, and he delivered! Having an in-person meeting was not an option because we live 17 hours away from Edmonton, and Dave worked with us on phone and email to ensure we still had an amazing reception!! He was even willing to put in our contract that he wouldn't play Justin Beiber, and held that promise, despite some best efforts by wedding guests!!

    Planning our big day with Dave Shannon was a breeze. He exhibits great professionalism and really cares about you having a good experience on your wedding day. Dave sent a different person to do our wedding. He did a good job. When our venue's microphone failed the MC went and asked the DJ for his mic so that the evening's program could continue. The DJ's mic worked great.

    We had Dave provide DJ services for our wedding in rural Alberta in the Spring of 2017. He was wonderful and professional to work with, provided lots of help and advice during the planning process. He was always easy to reach, and worked with us to make our vision come to life. We had an outdoor ceremony with a reception immediately after, and he had great set up and sound for both. I would definitely recommend Dave and his services!

    Was truly wonderful

    Dave was amazing and there every step of the way my guests loved the music right through till the end. He knew just the kind of music to have people up and dancing. We wouldnt have picked anyone different to be there as our dj very satisfied service and price

    Dave Shannon DJ's reply:

    Hi Celine!

    Thank you so kindly for the awesome review. You and Brandon were so amazing to work with and your extremely "laid-back" nature made my job very easy. It was a great pleasure to help you out by doing your "mash up" for your father-daughter dance too. It was such a fun evening and one I hope you'll always cherish and remember.

    The very best to you both for a long and happy future together :-)

    Dave Shannon was wonderful at our wedding in his professionalism, experience, fun spirit. He knew which music to play in the time line of the reception, made sure there was a variety for everyone. His detail and consideration was much appreciated. I could not say enough great things, my guests loved the DJ and I am so happy we choose to go with this company. We would choose this company again for our next function
