Here you are, taking the time to find out who will be the DJ for your wedding. I appreciate that! Everyone knows that as one of the main entertainment elements of a special occasion, this is an important decision. One of my roles is to make this a rewarding, easy and fun time for you! My first step is to listen, really listen to what you have in mind. Whether you are looking for ideas and guidance, or you have a very firm plan of what you want, I am here to provide any level of expertise that you need. I’m passionate about you loving your wedding from start to completion. From very small to large scale, I have the experience, savvy and unique touches that you’ve been hoping existed when you first decided to seek out a DJ. ~Shaun
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you describe your "dj style"?
Real. Intuitive. Fun. The moment you first meet Shaun, you'll notice his ability to make anyone smile. This natural charm goes a long way when welcoming your friends and family and anchoring the spotlights of your celebration (introductions, toasts etc.) When its time to rock the dance floor, Shaun's music intuition is second to none. Every wedding is fully customized for each couple and their guests. The art of DJing is on full display: music is perfectly mixed, each song blended into each other in-beat and, most importantly, completely different than your typical wedding DJ experience. Oh, and forget the cheese: Shaun doesn't even own a copy of The Chicken Dance (seriously!) and you won't be annoyed with silly games. Make sure to read reviews on Wedding Wire for more insight to Shaun's style.
will SHAUN BE THE dj at my wedding?
YES! You will work one-on-one with Shaun from the first meeting to the very last "one more song!" Shaun does not book a wedding then sub-contract the booking to another DJ.
can we give you a list of our favorite songs?
Even better! Each client receives their own website log-in where you can create a customize LOVE IT, LIKE IT and HATE IT playlist. You can even invite your guests to submit requests on your wedding website if desired (Shaun will even set this up for you if you are not web savvy!)
do we get to meet with YOU?
Absolutely! You are welcome to meet with Shaun as many times needed to plan your perfect day.
do we sign a contract with you?
Yes. A contract protects your investment and protects Shaun at the same time.
do you travel?
Absolutely. Shaun has traveled as far as Key West to perform at a wedding. In fact, he will be performing at weddings in Green Bay, Chicago, Door County, WI, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, IL and on a cruise ship in 2018.
are you insured?
2 Million Yeses (in other words, Shaun is fully insured and carries a $2,000,000 liability policy at every event)
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Yes. We travel with backup for every major piece of equipment. This insures there is never an interruption at your celebration.
WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT TERMS?
A retainer of 1/3 of the overall fee is due with your signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding. Payments can be made via check or online using via credit/debit card or PayPal without an additional fee.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
As an in-demand independent DJ, Shaun is booked for weddings 12-18 months in advance. If Shaun is already booked on your date, he will help you find another premier DJ option. Click here to inquire if Shaun is available for your date.
HOW MUCH SHOULD WE BUDGET FOR OUR DJ?
You should designate between 7% - 10% of your overall budget for entertainment at your reception. Fact is, most couples spend more on appetizers than their entrainment! No one remembers a cheese and veggie tray but the DJ you choose WILL MAKE OR BREAK your celebration. You can view Shaun's wedding pricing here.
DO YOU OFFER A PHOTOBOOTH?
