Well worth it

Dave was fun, had great music and stayed up late playing (long after I even went to bed). He didn't stop until the party stopped

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 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!

Amazing dj for wedding!

Dave was our dj at our wedding this last weekend and he was AMAZING! I’m very type A and wanted certain things a certain way and boy did he deliver. Our dance floor was far from empty all night! He did a great job at communicating with me (the bride) leading up to the wedding and made sure I was stress free on the wedding day. 10/10 would recommend

Dave made our wedding wonderful

When Joanne and I were interviewing DJs for our wedding, we were struck by Dave's enthusiasm and interest in working with us. He did not disappoint! Dave worked closely with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding, offering up suggestions for certain wedding ceremony events when we found ourselves stumped. We had a specially choreographed/edited first dance and Dave was more than happy to use our cut of music for it. He did a great job of 'reading the room' and keeping the party going while also using our requested music (we ran out of gas a few times from so much dancing & had to take quite a few breaks to recharge!). Thank you Dave, you made our wedding day amazing.

Miscommunication

On our actual wedding day, the DJ who showed up informed us the Dave had booked 4 weddings on this day. And he was there to fill in for him, we booked Dave to be our MC and the DJ that was there to replace him, it was obvious he had never looked at our script beforehand and didn't receive the list of songs we put together that we wanted played during the dance. Overall he did an OK job of entertaining the guests and keeping the Dancefloor busy.

Overall great experience

Clint was the DJ that ended up coming to our wedding and he killed it! He had the dance floor packed the whole time which is exactly what we wanted to have! He was able to read the room to keep everyone going! He also made sure he had a conversation with myself and my husband to see if there was any music off limits, and to see if we wanted requests etc…. We also used their photo booth which was an excellent choice there was a line up all night long for people waiting to get in it!!
