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!

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.

Great job on the music! He had my whole family dancing and swaying at their table to "Sweet Caroline," and got in all our favorites. I didn't give him much to work with as I knew from other reviews, he was a pro. He did a great job reading the crowd and even keeping people dancing in a hot, tightly cramped room. They were really fun to work with and you can definitely trust him to do a great job. This was one of the one vendors I didn't stress at all over!

I have no idea where to begin.

Our wedding was really awesome and my wife and I put a lot of effort into it. We found Anthony Soike and Red Shoe on Yelp! and chose to meet with them first because of the amazing reviews. Let me be the one to tell you that they are worth more than every single penny you pay.

After meeting on the phone with a few DJ's, the call with Anthony was professional, polite, and most importantly, he was listening! We decided to meet and the in person meeting was an extension of the phone meeting, professional, polite, and him asking us what we were looking for.

We are an extremely tough group to please (our family and friends) for various instances but after meeting with Anthony and seeing his reviews on Yelp!, we were confident he would be the perfect fit. After putting down a deposit to retain him for our wedding date (a very busy 9/10/11) he contacted us along the way to make sure everything was going as planned. Naturally, it wasn't, and we changed our venue from NBC Studios to Union Station downtown 8 weeks before the big day. This was no problem with him and we re-walked the new venue and he tailored his quote to the new necessities. Since our venue doubled in size (we moved the ceremony to a separate place from the reception) his equipment had to be increased and it was a modest raise. Anyone could have double the cost, but he didn't. Actually when we spoke he mentioned that he would have decreased the total due if we had decreased the venue in size.

On our suggestions to him song list wise, they weren't suggestions. They were rules. And he FREAKING NAILED IT. Our must play, please play, and absolutely do not touch went off perfectly for pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception/dance rager. I cannot see how this guy could get less than five stars. I wish there was an option for infinity stars.

We had 300 guests and 100 of them were dancing on the dance floor DURING DINNER. We had to kick people out for the "first dances" (which both the bride and I didnt want to do but the parents insisted pictures). We thought "oh great how will we get people out there?".

What ensued next was a three and a half hour dance party with 90% of the guests dancing. I had friends who didnt even dance at their own wedding dancing. We insisted no wedding "go-to's" (YMCA, Brick House, Celebration, I Will Survive) and instead got the best play list anyone has ever heard in their life.

I know this review is long, but if you're reading this thinking about hiring Anthony, just do it. Worry about your budget later and do what you can to reserve him for your date. He was professional, a perfect MC (Vin Scully school of announcing in which he introduced and let the story play out instead of forcing things down your throat), and one hell of a DJ.

We did have the best wedding ever, and most of the credit should go to Anthony.

As we all know selecting a DJ can be difficult. The role is so important and you want everyone at your wedding to have a great time. If you're looking for a great DJ who's fun and easy to work with Red Shoe is it. Tony was our event DJ and he was prefect. Our entire wedding was out on the dance floor and didn't want him to stop.

I could not have been happier with DJ T (Tony). Every email I sent prior to the weding was answered within a day or two, even on weekends when I'm sure he is busy working. He was nice, professional, and very accomodating (sp?) of our needs. My brother sang during the ceremony and Tony made sure to get in touch with me a few days before the wedding to be sure that he had the correct backup music to use. He was great at the reception too; he didn't make himself the star of the show the way I have seen some d.j.s do it and he was totally cool - not cheesy at all. A perfect choice for a great party!

We scrapped our idea for wedding-reception karaoke less than a month before our wedding - and luckily for us we were still able to find DJ IG (Ian) of RedShoe LA. My husband had a great time working with Ian to determine our playlist, and the day of the wedding we got TONS of compliments on the music - from the ambient folk pre-ceremony to the awesome mix of classic rock/motown dance tunes that kept everyone out on the floor. Ian provided the perfect soundtrack to our day.

Ian (and RedShoe) were amazing. He was so professional, thorough and attentive to details and he put together the perfect timeline for the night (way better than what the caterer/venue were suggesting). He helped us to get the music perfect, and his suggestions were almost all right on the page with us!

The night he delivered what he promised and I think the dance floor was full from after dinner well into the end of the night.

And though I only know him professionally, Ian was just a very kind and good guy. We all got along well and everyone had a great night!

We still have people telling us just how much they loved him and the music he played (we couldn't agree more!) At the meetings with him before our wedding he made suggestions for the recessional song and cocktail hour that were absolutely perfect and were exactly what we were looking for (without even knowing it!) Tony is so sweet and very easy to work with! We HIGHLY recommend Tony!

Ian was AMAZING!!! We were so happy and super impressed! He is a super great guy and easy to talk to and work with(also very professional). Every song he played was great and he picked up the mood perfectly. He was sure to play all of our requests and at all of the right times. We gave him a lot of freedom to set the tone and use his discretion and he truly did a superb job! He kept the event flowing and he kept the dance floor FULL the whole evening--it was terrific! He did a great job communicating with our guest without ever being obnoxious. He picked great stuff to play for each moment (ie cocktail hour, dinner, etc) I had a bunch of people (all ages) come up and tell me how great he was and people danced and danced! Throughout the night we would stop and think how much we loved each song. He had great music suggestions and we used him for our ceremony as well and he did a fantastic job. Also he had top of the line equipment and the sound itself was perfect--no blips or scratchiness perfect levels everything sounded outstanding. If you want to have the best party ever--HIRE IAN!! Seriously, you will not regret it. It is worth every penny and will truly make your wedding spectacular!

Throughout the night we would stop and think how much we loved each song. He had great music suggestions and we used him for our ceremony as well and he did a fantastic job. Also he had top of the line equipment and the sound itself was perfect--no blips or scratchiness perfect levels everything sounded outstanding. If you want to have the best party ever--HIRE IAN!! Seriously, you will not regret it. It is worth every penny and will truly make your wedding spectacular! Read less

The playlist was the first thing I started working on after my now-husband proposed last August, and by the time I met Anthony in January, had a four-page Excel spreadsheet. He was unfazed, and you can see other reviews with similar stories. RedShoe will roll with the punches you throw, which is great when you want to offer a little something for the grannies, the toddlers and the freak-nasties you're inviting to your wedding.

When we started planning, we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted:
1. Someone who could keep the flow of the event going but not be a full-on MC.
2. Someone who could mix music from all kinds of genres, from hip hop to 80s Spanish pop to doo wop to Gaga.
3. Someone who could read a crowd and provide music accordingly.
4. Someone who would not rob us blind.

Anthony from DJRedShoe did all that and more! From our first meeting, I saw how RedShoe is different from other companies. Number one, they had forms for me to fill out. Zah? Not like medical forms, actually good questions, like what songs you wanted to play for different events during the wedding. If you haven't thought about those details, the good folks at RedShoe will prompt you. It's best not to leave anything to chance when it comes to weddings.

One great question that Anthony asked was what year the groom and I graduated from high school. That may seem weird, but it makes sense when you think about the music that's formed your memories. BBD's Poison is a great song, hands down, but it's particularly evocative for some of us in a particular age bracket. More points for Anthony! Add to that his calm demeanor and willingness to work with my playlist demands and we were sold. Throughout the process, Anthony was responsive and communicative, which I can't say for other vendors we spoke to.

The day of the wedding, we expected we'd have to fudge the timeline a little, and we did, and got total cooperation from Anthony. This is what happens when you work with event professionals: It all worked out and we did everything we wanted, albeit in a different order than we'd planned. Anthony kept the music going and gave everyone a little something to dance to. He even conspired with the groom to serenade me for the final song of the night. Suffice to say it was an unforgettable day.

I'm sooooo glad I hired DJRedShoe instead of programming my iPod to run on autopilot for the night. It makes such a difference to have someone monitoring the crowd, rather than having to find tracks and playlists when you're supposed to be talking to guests. You can get a sample of DJRedShoe's mixing skills on their website, and they have podcasts with useful information. All in all, a great investment and I highly recommend these guys!
