    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.

    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!

    Definitely Recommend Dave Shannon!

    Dave Shannon was great! We didn't really know what songs we wanted to play or how our evening reception should be organized, so it was mostly up to Dave what songs to play, and he did a fantastic job as our DJ and MC. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of booking Dave Shannon. Throughout the evening he was very flexible in doing announcements, accepting song wishes, finding suitable songs for our dance (which we hadn't planned but suddenly decided to do for the guests). Everyone at the event enjoyed music. Dave was always reachable, ready to answer any questions, available to meet with us before the wedding, and his pricing for the event was straight forward with everything included. Some DJs charge by hour packages, but Dave Shannon's price is for the whole event, including lights and more. We definitely recommend Dave Shannon! Thank you for the great experience!

    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!!
