Shawn is the best DJ you could ever ask for. Reasonably priced for a superb performance. Goes above and beyond.

Shawn keeps open communication during planning and will guide you through the schedule of events. Whatever you want, he'll get it done. I had no idea how to build the schedule for the reception, but he provided me with one, and I made the changes from there. His online website and music planner is really great, too.He has a huge library of music as well as provides you with the top 100 selected songs, top cake cutting songs, top dance party songs, top whatever songs. You can also add custom music you want that isn't on the list, as long as you provide it to him. Just great to work with, understanding, and patient with my never ending questions & long list of custom added music.

He's also very helpful to your wedding party, guided the parents through the grand entrance and essentially... held the entire night together! He was not only a great DJ, but the best master of ceremonies (mc) for the entire reception of our wedding. He kept everything on schedule and if something had to be moved, if you were too busy making small talk with friends, or if you just need sometime to eat, he'll do what he does best... goes according to your schedule and your needs. Shawn is the best!! You won't regret having him as your DJ. I owe Shawn so much for providing the greatest ambiance and throwing a kick ass party. Thank you, Shawn!!

Plus: My husband surprised me with the picture record soundtrack of The Little Mermaid (my favorite Disney movie) as we were cutting the cake, and Shawn played Kiss The Girl right on the dot. It was such a sweet moment that caught me by surprise. Just one of the many special moments that made me feel that Shawn is attentive to your personality & tastes and looks for any chance to make a special moment spectacular.

Shawn is awesome! My fiance and I came across him on weddingwire and yelp, and after meeting with him, we felt extremely comfortable hiring him as our DJ. The wedding went perfectly. Shawn answered any questions and concerns I had about music and audio prior to the wedding, and everyone had a great time rocking the floor! While some people may have had hectic weddings, I felt like my wedding really went according to plan, and Shawn was a huge part of it. You will not regret picking Shawn as your DJ for your wedding!

Such a great experience for our wedding with Shawn!

From the very first encounter over the phone to our final meeting, Shawn was friendly, attentive, detailed, and professional. We had interviewed several DJs, but chose Shawn because of his fun personality and services. Everyone LOVED the music and activities! Shawn really took all our song preferences into consideration and gave some great recommendations to keep the guests interactive.
PLUS! Shawn pronounced all our names perfectly! People were really impressed and said it was the best wedding ever!

If you want a DJ who makes the process of party planning easy, affordable, and fun -- a MC who is professional, clever and stylin', then you need to hire Shawn Vasquez of Amazing Event DJs.

I am SO happy we did!

From initial contact to the wedding itself, Shawn's knowledge and work ethic put me at ease. Our reception was a blast from start to finish, thanks to a huge music selection, Shawn's ability to accommodate my special requests, and the fantastic lighting he provided. He even devised an extremely entertaining way to gift our centerpieces.

I highly recommend you give Shawn a call. He will go above and beyond for you as he did for us, creating an event that will party-on in memory for a lifetime.

Shawn was amazing, very professional and outgoing. He played a great selection of music that encompassed both of our family ethnicities as well as allowed all ages to enjoy. Our guests had so much fun as he smoothly and cleverly involved everyone in wedding games. Further, he seamlessly incorporated a special tribute to my mother who recently past away. Thank you Shawn.... that was greatly appreciated! Shawn handled everything perfectly and a key contributor in ensuring every aspect of our ceremony and reception was coordinated properly and in sync with our wedding coordinators plans. Also, his uplighting and monogram was a great touch to our reception area. Thank you Shawn for perfect event!

I knew Shawn would be my wedding DJ the very moment I was having the time of my life at my friend Rosie's wedding a couple years ago. He had everyone dancing on the dance floor up until the very last song and made the whole experience exciting and fun for me as a guest. It was a lasting impression for me!

On our big day 9.27.13, my husband, Oscar and I were more than thrilled at his professionalism and ability make the night come alive with his DJ, MC, and Reception coordination services. There were 300+ guests at our wedding who were very happily eating and dancing the night away. I was very worried that some of our Spanish speaking guests that had traveled from out of the country to join us would not feel included at the reception-not a problem as Shawn speaks Spanish as well.

Shawn takes the time and consideration to hear you out as a couple during the wedding planning process and creates a play list that sets the perfect ambiance for your special day. The trusting and professional relationship he creates truly makes you feel that all will be taken care of on this important day. His online, user friendly reception timeline kept our reception events organized and wedding vision clear. This timeline was a very useful tool as Shawn forwarded it to my photographer and catering vendor in efforts to keep everyone on the same page. Day of, he communicated very well with the vendors, such as our photographer, on-site reception coordinator, mariachi, and catering services coordinator-this was such a blessing and relief!

Lastly, there were many times in which I personally felt confused about simple questions such as, "how long should the Mariachi play at my cocktail hour and reception" or "can you take the time to talk to my future mother-in-law about a song dedication for my husband". Without making a fuss Shawn was able to quickly reply to my questions and take care of my needs in a manner that was comfortable and easy. He cares about his c

Shawn rocked our wedding. I am a musician and former DJ so I seriously considered making a mix and hitting play, but I am so glad we hired Shawn. He announced all the major events of the night and helped us pick music for the areas I was unfamiliar with. We did nineties hip-hop, and he loves that era, among others - his musical knowledge is vast. He let us pick songs we liked and also wanted to know what not to play. Most impressively, he was mixing into a new song about every 30 seconds so the party moved and moved and moved. It was like being at a real hip hop club. His price was very reasonable too, so it's really a no brainer to use Shawn. He's also the nicest guy you will ever meet.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you Shawn for walking us every step of the way when it came to the selection of the music and how the schedule would work the day of our wedding. The online selection system made things much easier when it came to finalizing our selection and every song that we requested was available to us. Shawn provided his best insight when it came to our selection and it truly showed the day of our wedding.

People till this day still talk about the music that was played on our wedding day on how great it was. On top of having a great mix of music his MC skills were second to none. He was able to get everyone on the dance floor by making them all a part of the wedding celebration.

There are many details to think about when planning out a wedding, but the music was the least of our worries as Shawn assured us that it completely under control.

On behalf of my wife and I we thank you!
