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. Read less

We hired Red Shoe's Dominic Sagona (aka DJ Dom) to play at our July wedding and couldn't have been happier. We frankly aren't the most music-savvy people and were sort of overwhelmed trying to give guidance about what we wanted for our reception, which was at lunchtime. We gave Dominic a list of some songs we liked and he did the rest. I had several people comment specifically on the music during the reception saying how great it was.

More than that, Dominic was super nice and easy to work with. We put off music guidance until a few weeks before the wedding because we felt so clueless, and Dominic was totally great about it. And he absolutely bailed us out on the first dance where we just swayed back and forth and did a twirl or two. "Just give me a nod or a wink or whatever when you want to be done, and I'll end it," he said at a pre-planning meeting. He did just that.

BEST EVER!!!! DJ Wes Lee was the best DJ ever. I had so many people ask me about him after the wedding. He was so professional and played everything we wanted to hear. Not to mention kept our wedding going. He gave us so many examples of what people use for certain parts of their wedding that it made choosing the music so much less intimidating. We owe a huge thanks to him and the red shoe team so THANK YOU!!! Best experience ever.

DJ Manny was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding! He was professional, talented, nice, and so fun to work with. I sent him an endless song list and he was able to incorporate our eclectic music taste into the entire night/day while making it the most fun party ever! The dance floor was packed all night and people could stop moving no matter where they were! I have so many great memories of dancing with friends and family to specific songs and would get so excited to hear songs we gave him and his creativity with mixing it up while still keeping the party alive! We would've gone until 4am if we could have :) It was exactly the party that my husband and I wanted and we were so pleased with Manny and RedShoe!

Book them now!
DJ Manny was great, he kept us moving the whole party. People with eclectic music taste will welcome this collective. Manny was able to fit in many types of music and satisfy everyone's musical appetite. Truly professional. Manny set up with plenty of time until party. Sound check before start, wireless microphone on a stand all worked flawlessly. DJ only spoke when needed, very unobtrusive to music. The music was everything. It was everything that my daughter wanted, and more if that is possible.
It was suggested to me while planning the event that the DJ will make or break your party. RedShoeLA's DJ Manny made the party. Do not skimp on this part of your day.

We knew Ian was the right choice after our very first Facetime call with him. For example, when we talked to him about what kind of music we wanted playing during dinner, we explained that we wanted “Happy Blues...like non-depressing Bill Withers and Sam Cooke.” He was able to take that fairly vague description and rattle off a ton of other songs that would fit right in. Two weeks before our wedding, we had another meeting with him to go over our music choices for each part of the day (ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, dancing) as well as specific song choices (processional, first dance, etc.). He even went so far as to us ask us specifically how we wanted to be introduced as a couple and what verbiage he should use to invite everyone to the dance floor after parent dances. He offered suggestions where we needed them and worked to make sure that he really understood what vibe we were going for. We never needed to worry that he was going to play cheesy songs---he kept the party going the whole time. So many people came up to us after the wedding to tell us how amazing our DJ was---our reception was a rocking dance party the whole time all thanks to Ian! Hire him!!!!!!

We chose Dominic Sagona, and wow are we so glad we did! He is absolutely the best. We had a guest count of 250 with all age ranges, and Dominic had the dance floor packed the whole time. He listened to what we wanted , helped us decide on a few things, and made the whole process of music choosing very simple. During our planning process he was organized and in communication with us and our wedding planner, Nicole George events. We will recommend him to everyone.

We booked Manny from Red Shoe as our wedding DJ in Santa Barbara and couldn't be happier with his service. During the booking process there were some confusions about logistics, but Red Shoe and Manny were quick to respond to our concerns and flexible with what we needed. During our initial planning meeting, Manny picked up our vibe and our taste in music instantly - which was not easy since we have such different tastes in music and cultural backgrounds! At the wedding, Manny was on top of everything, from ceremony to reception, and kept the energy going flawlessly all night long! Manny was pleasant to work with, super easy going, and incredibly professional - we wish we could have more parties just to book him more often! Above and beyond our expectations, and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a DJ.

We worked with Jonathan at RedShoe and he was TOP NOTCH. He was such a pleasure to work with and gave us the perfect amount of direction through the entire process. We received endless compliments on his music selection, but we were mostly impressed with what a lively and classy VJ he was! He brought the perfect touch to our wedding, kept our guests on the dance floor, and was extremely polite amidst my family's music requests. We absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a standout DJ.

DJ Dom was so awesome to work with I'm not sure where to start! We knew we wanted a DJ (vs. band) but after going to so many weddings where we pretty much hated the DJs (mostly due to cheesy narratives) we turned to online reviews to start our search. RedShoe was a perfect 5 star on Yelp....seriously who has a perfect score? But these guys do and 100% because they deserve it. We opted for DJ Dom because his musical tastes mirrored ours...but I was also really focused on ensuring that we played music to mirror the events of the evening. We skyped/spoke on the phone a few times and felt like he was responsive, understood our vision, and was very accommodating when my husband sent a must-play list that was 4 hours long (for a 5 hour event....he later pared that down). Dom made our not-so-standard choices (Explosions in the Sky + the Beatles for walk down the aisle, M83 for our first dance) flow so smoothly. And we sent over starter playlists with, again, not your typical wedding music - that he played at all the right times in a way that just - worked. We had guests compliment the music during the wedding (when does that happen?!) and loved every song he played. He also served as the MC in a way that was totally appropriate but not cheesy. DJ Dom was worth every penny - and we will 100% use RedShoe (and Dom) for any future DJ needs. Highly, highly recommend them!!
