    Friendly and professional!

    Shawn was awesome! He was helpful every step of the way of the wedding planning process. He gave us lots of tips and insights on the ins and outs of weddings. He was courteous, professional and played great music the whole evening. One guest even told us that everytime they went to sit down, Shawn would have another fabulous song start! Everyone had a great time the whole evening thanks to Shawn's music and emceeing service. Thank you so much!!

    An awesome party thanks to Shawn

    Shawn did an awesome job as the DJ for our wedding. He was extremely professional and accommodating throughout the planning process and during our wedding day, and had an awesome energy throughout the night that kept everyone on the dance floor. Would absolutely recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a talented, fun and friendly DJ.

    Step by Step - Amazing

    We had Shawn from Step by Step DJ our wedding on July 14th at Bloom Field Gardens in Newcastle, ON. From start to finish Step by Step was an amazing choice and made the experience of being a bride SO EASY! He is so professional and knows exactly how to run the show. He made sure that as the bride I was busy enjoying my time with my guests and not thinking twice about what was happening with the music. He was fabulous at coordinating with my photog + videographers, as well as our MC, and was super helpful in getting some performers we had all setup. Shawn worked really hard to make this day perfect... and it showed! We are grateful to you!

    Not very good

    After talking with Shawn from step by step DJ. We decided to go with his company and gave him a deposit.

    Our wedding was for May 16 2020, covid 19 cancelled all our wedding planes. We asked Shawn for our deposit as we don’t know when our where we are having our wedding. I know under normal circumstances deposits are not refundable because it holds the date. In this case all ceremonies are banned for this date.

    Shawn did nothing more than have a 20 min phone conversation with us. He is taking advantage of this situation. All our other vendors understand the magnitude of this situation and gave full refunds, because that’s the right thing to do. We were devastated when we found out our date got cancelled due to covid, but for vendors to be taking advantage of the situation is unacceptable.

    Excellent DJ Service

    We had the wonderful Jason as our DJ from Step by Step. He was amazing from the meeting all the way through our reception. He had the perfect blue lightning which really accented our decor and had our guests dancing to our favourite tunes all night! Jason also MC'd for us and made sure only those who had permission got the microphone! Thank you so much Step by Step and Jason for everything you did to make our day special for us and our guests. Would highly recommend!
