RedShoe is a boutique DJ company founded in 2005 by longtime friends Tony Liebetrau and Ian Gotler. In a welcome break from traditional wedding DJs, they customize the soundtrack for your event to reflect your musical tastes. There’s no 1,000 song printout for you to labor over. Instead, RedShoe builds playlists from the ground up. They want you to be creatively involved, so they start with selections from your music library to ensure that the wedding sounds uniquely like you. Additionally, Tony and Ian spent many years honing their talents at clubs and Hollywood parties before transitioning into weddings. This allows them to mix dance music with a technical skill rarely found in the wedding market. No YMCA. No Macarena. Just great dance music mixed in an interesting and dynamic way to keep the party moving. This ain’t your daddy’s DJ company. Read less

Highly recommend RedShoe, especially our DJ Jonathan! During the wedding planning process, we just KNEW music would be a priority for us since we wanted a more casual party vibe. We actually interviewed a couple DJ's before video-chatting with Jonathan and we just clicked with him right away. He seemed to just "get it" and we hired him soon after.

Working with different vendors can be difficult sometimes, but not with Jonathan! He was always very responsive with emails, suggestions, and super flexible. Flexibility is key and he knows how to read the crowd and play off everyone's vibe. Even during our wedding some of my (now) husband's friends wanted to do a impromptu dance for the his mom (a very meaningful dance for her).. they requested the song.. Jonathan found it, played it for them and it made such a special, SPONTANEOUS moment for everyone. Our mom was in tears (thanks Jonathan!!) Music was on point and the night went smoothly thanks to him.

I was looking through a video my friend sent me and there is a moment during our surprise for the groom when our friends carrying the surprise were having a hard time getting through and I see Jonathan run over to move the sign for them. Moments like this is what I mean he went above and beyond for us!

Thank you for making our party vision come true and making it special for us, our families, and friends. :)

We worked with Jonathan for our wedding and OMG was he stellar! Leading up to the wedding Jonathan worked closely with my now hubby to get just the right vibe for our night. We wanted to incorporate a lot of different music styles - classics, pop, dance, salsa, latin pop, and more. Jonathan made it work seamlessly! We danced from 8ish until 1 and not once was the dance floor empty. He really played to our interests and the guests. He also helped with some of our special moments songs - he has a great list of songs for each moment. And on top of it all, he's an all around really nice guys. Oh and he speaks Spanish! Bonus!!

Tony is the best! We hired Tony for our wedding in December 2015 because we knew how good he was -- he had DJ'd a family member's wedding a few years ago and he was amazing. He costs a little bit more than some other DJs (even within the Red Shoe group) but you are paying for experience. Tony took a giant list of music from the both of us that tried to summarize our musical taste and was able to play an awesome mix of songs all throughout the night. His timing was perfect and even with a smallish guest count (about 80) the dance floor was always occupied.

Throughout the process he was professional and always available. We had many phone calls and emails about "must plays" and "don't plays" and what style of music we wanted to hear. He was always receptive to our ideas but able to offer his own input based on his professional experience. In the end he made our wedding amazing and we will always remember that it sounded very much like "us."

If you are looking for a DJ that can synthesize music based on YOUR tastes as well as draw on experience to "feel the room" and adjust on the fly, then Tony is your man. Do yourself a favor, don't skimp on the DJ -- get the best and go with Tony.

We had Jonathan Rosales ("JCR") of RedShoe DJ our wedding on 12/5/15. He was absolutely incredible! He understood our music taste even when we couldn't articulate it properly. He had people of all ages dancing the entire night -- we'd go on the floor for one song and they'd stay for an hour because there was no lag in the songs he chose. Plus he worked in our love of mash-ups in his creative transitions between songs. We truly feel that Jonathan is gifted at reading the crowd and making everyone smile.

We can't recommend him more and wish we could have another wedding so we could invest in him again.

My husband and I hired Anthony, aka DJ Swon, for our wedding. I'd like to start by saying that, out of every vendor we hired, the one we had the highest expectations of was our DJ. We'd been to SO many weddings where it was nothing but the same cheesy / 'top 40' songs. BUT we had been to one wedding where the music was a super fun, eclectic mix that catered to all ages, and the party had raged into the night. So we knew wedding music COULD be awesome... we just didn't know if we could find the right person to match that experience.

I'm so happy to report that Anthony was that DJ. We were very particular with our suggestions, making hours-long playlists and meeting with him twice in advance of the wedding. He was always happy to work with us while also bringing his experience to the mix and speaking up where he felt we were going astray. We also hired him to run sound for our ceremony, and he corresponded in advance with our two friends who we hired to play live music for our processional and recessional.

We had a film theme to the wedding. During dinner, Anthony mixed a perfect playlist of movie scores, leading up to "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling", which actually caused the dance floor to be FULL before the salads were even served. It was a problem for the caterers, who couldn't serve the plated meal until everyone was seated. It's the only time out of the 10+ weddings I've gone to where I've seen the DJ have to get on the microphone to plead with people to LEAVE the dance floor. He did too good of a job for his own good!! And it should probably go without saying that the dance floor was completely full for the entirety of the post-dinner reception. I barely left it myself, and so many guests came up to me to say what a great DJ we had.

TLDR: I knew he was our guy when I told him that "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang was on the "do not play" list, and he said "I don't even have it in my library."

Hiring Redshoe was a no brainier. We heard so many amazing things, and even though they were a little out of our price range, Tony told us to meet with DJ Dom since he, at the time, was a newer DJ to the company but with lots of experience. We also met with JCR and were impressed with both guys. Even though we ended up hiring DJ Dom, we hired JCR to film our wedding since we saw his incredible work on Vimeo. And we were so happy we did! But that's another review. DJ Dom was so pleasant to work with and he made it easy to share music over spotify. The ceremony went off without any problems. During the dancing portion everyone kept coming up to me saying we had the best DJ!! Plus he kept the party going till midnight! We were all a sweaty mess by the end of the night! Success!!

Wes at RedShoe is an awesome DJ! My husband and I were lucky to have him as our wedding DJ last month.

We reached out to RedShoe after they were recommended to us by another vendor, and were immediately impressed by their professionalism and responsiveness. We had a backyard wedding, and Wes did a great job of determining how to set up his systems to make them work with the electrical circuits of the house and with the flow of our event. He sent us a few Spotify playlists from RedShoe that had awesome song ideas for different events in the night.

We had a ton of music requests, and Wes completely honored our requests while also filling in the gaps with other songs we hadn't specifically requested, but that we love! While we were taking pictures outside venue during the cocktail hour, we could hear Wes's song choices and kept thinking, "Wow, this party sounds so fun! I want to be back in there!" Wes absolutely killed it with songs and transitions during the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. We got lots of compliments on the music. Wes was even able to play our college fight song at our request, which was a huge hit with our large crowd of college friends. For a brief moment, we even had some wedding crashers -- which we felt was a true sign of a bumpin' dance party. :)

All the while, Wes was very articulate and professional with his announcements. We paid a little more for RedShoe than we might have with some other DJs, but we are so happy we did, because Wes created such an awesome vibe for the whole evening! I'd highly recommend Wes and RedShoe.

DJ DOM (a.k.a. Dominic) just DJ'ed our 6/13/ wedding, and he absolutely slayed it. He exceeded our expectations completely, and though we originally were reluctant to spend money on a DJ it was worth every cent. Not only was he an excellent DJ and kept people dancing throughout the night, he was warm and personable, professional, organized, and so hard-working throughout the day. My fiance and I relocated to Seattle right as we began planning our wedding, and Dominic made the whole process for our music, sound, and general vibe so easy. He met with us TWICE through Skype to ensure he understood our vibe (I am admittedly a bit of a music snob) as well as capture all of the logistical nuances of our big day. Our wedding was all outdoors in a hilly private property and I saw him constantly running up and down the property to make sure all the sound was set up for our ceremony, our dinner, and our reception. The day of, I seriously didn't have to worry a bit about the music or DJ Dom because he had it completely handled and my husband and I were just free to experience the day with the rest of our guests.

I'm so relieved that I didn't just try to iPod my wedding and that I entrusted it with RedShoe. They were cheese-free, easy to work with, and have great music taste and accommodate the couples they work with as well as the guests.

Highly recommend!

We researched several DJ groups in the LA area but were immediately taken by RedShoe. Their vision, reviews, and overall approach to weddings really stuck with us. We listened to a few playlists each DJ had to offer and decided to meet with Wes (DJ WesLee). We had one in-person meeting and signed him right away (months before our actual wedding).

Wes has a lot of enthusiasm and passion in music and his craft, and it definitely shows. The planning process leading up to the event was really collaborative and easy. We also had an on-site walk through with Wes which was extremely helpful.

Wes DJ'd our ceremony, dinner and reception for our wedding, and he exceeded all our (and our guests') expectations. He also MC'd our reception. In addition, we had specific requests for the music and timing of the music during our ceremony and reception, which Wes executed flawlessly. The sound quality was exceptional throughout the entire event.

Since then, we have received numerous compliments from our guests regarding Wes, the music, and our overall event. We would definitely choose to work with Wes again for any future events and STRONGLY recommend RedShoe, and specifically DJ WesLee, to anyone planning a wedding or any special event!
