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

Ian DJed our wedding and was awesome. We truly could not have asked for more. From our initial emails, first conversation, meeting in person, and of course the wedding itself, Ian was completely professional, friendly, and flat out skilled. He was highly recommended by our coordinator and still managed to far exceed our expectations.

He did our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Aside from the few key songs we had in mind, Ian helped us to come up with the general vibe for each portion of the day and then went with what he knew to make the perfect soundtrack for our wedding.

We like music and dancing and knew we had a dancing crowd, but beyond that, didn't have much direction for Ian other than saying go with what it seems people are into. He asked us some questions, got a sense of us, and then went with it. And rocked it! Our dance floor was packed ALL night!! We cannot say how much people raved about Ian throughout the night and we are still hearing about how great he was over a month later.

I also have to include, because it was so unexpected and appreciated, that Ian gave us the flexibility to decide the night of our wedding how late he would be there. We had a flexible end time with our venue and when this came up in our discussion with Ian, he offered, without asking, to let us make the decision that night depending on if it seemed like the night was winding down or if people were still going strong. Given Ian's skill, of course the night was still going strong!! We were dancing with our guests until the last minute possible, and loved every minute of it!

Thank you Ian, thank you! We highly recommend Ian for any event you are considering!!!! He will not disappoint!

My husband and I are music nerds. From the beginning, we knew that our DJ was going to be a big part of the wedding experience. We wanted someone who would be able to read a crowd, someone who could move the event along without playing "MC", and someone who would integrate our musical tastes instead of just playing generic wedding music... Dominic DELIVERED! He had everyone, and I mean EVERYONE dancing. This includes (but is not limited to): my 80-something great uncle, our music snob friends, a baby in a stroller, and the super cool waiter who rocked out with us at the end of the night. Dominic is super friendly and chill, and we immediately felt at ease with him from the first Skype meeting (we planned the wedding from out of state), and he was so easy to work with. We had a blast with him and I would recommend him to anybody getting married in the LA area! 5 Stars! A++! Super Rad Thumbs Up! Go Dominic!

We loved RedShoe. They did ones of our friends wedding and we have never had more fun at a wedding on the dance floor. We worked with Dominic and he was friendly and professional. He had lists created for each portion of the wedding that you can use and played every song we asked for.
He did an amazing job as the Emcee and we received so many compliments on the DJ. We had a big wedding with a big mix of a younger and older crowd and he created an atmosphere that kept the dance floor full. We were very happy with RedShoe!

Anthony was awesome! Truly - he played just the right mix of old and new tunes and he made sure everyone kept dancing ALL NIGHT! Exactly what we wanted! So many of our friends said it was the most fun wedding and that Anthony was great! We've already received a request for his info!

Anthony had just the right touch to announce every special moment, but he didn't over do it. Plus - he looked great in his tie and vest - he fit right in! Oh and when we switched up our wedding song and asked him to pick a song for the processional THAT NIGHT! He did so without even flinching and picked a great song!

Really great job Anthony - and THANK YOU!

The personalities of everyone the I spoke with at RedShoe were fantastic. I would consider hanging out with any of them as people. Unfortunately our DJ (Wes) wasn't as familiar with the sound system at our venue as we would have preferred. He did an excellent job making the most of it, and he kept the music at the perfect volume, he had good transitions between songs, and was a super friendly guy. When it comes to audio setup, however, he wasn't very comfortable with allowing the venue telling him how things typically work. He wanted to do things his way, which would have been fine, but it made us uncomfortable listening to him bicker with the people that built the sound system at the event space. Of all the vendors, we had to correct him the most. But it's hard to say negative things about him, because he did everything with a smile, he cared about us, and was always on time and ready to go. I would recommend him, for sure, I just think the state of the art equipment at our venue was a little too much to handle, and that isn't his fault. We had a pretty intense wedding, and he did his best. We thank him graciously.

If you want to have a fun wedding with incredible music then DJ Ian with RedShoe is your guy. We knew DJ Ian was a complete hit when we started receiving #BestDJEver all over our Facebook accounts when friends were describing our wedding the next day and posting pictures. He had tons of people on the dance floor all night long, both young and old. He is so passionate about music and was so patient in answering all of our questions and making us feel confident that everything would run smoothly. He's so professional and knows how to ensure that all wedding guests are dancing and enjoying themselves. We even threw him a curve ball and asked him to incorporate some ethnic music into our event and he did it smoothly and flawlessly. I highly recommend DJ Ian and RedShoe!

DJ Tony from Red Shoe is fantastic! We selected him as the DJ for our wedding and we were not disappointed. He stuck to our play list and did a great job suggesting music to fill in. He is laid back and has a cool personality. He was very responsive and gave us great feedback on how the flow of the reception should go. I had several guests ask me who the DJ was and I would for sure use him for another event. Thank you Tony!!

D.J. Wes was the BEST! Our wedding had an age range of 4 to 75 and we've been overwhelmed with guests telling us how great the music was. Wes managed to hit songs that appealed to everyone at the right parts of the night. The dance floor went strong until the end. Wes helped make our wedding an incredibly fun night!

We found Ian from RedShoe on a referral from a friend who attended a wedding he did. She is not the dancing type and raved about how everyone - young and old - was on the dance floor from the beginning of the wedding to the end.

We hired Ian after one Skype meeting and found him to be a total professional. In my opinion, the DJ/emcee is kind of like the master of ceremonies that reads the crowd and directs the flow of the evening. He worked with our wedding coordinator to keep us on schedule and played just the right music at the right times to appeal to both the older crowd early on and all of our friends with an awesome old school set late into the evening.

The music was so good that we went into overtime. My feet hurt for days from dancing - so much so that I was barefoot and had to wear my husband's socks to keep up with Ian's awesome music! Ian made our wedding so special and we are so grateful.
