Shaw Sound Productions
Doug Shaw is above and beyond most DJs. He was very curteous, knowledgeable, and very much the professional entertainment that makes an event AN EVENT. He really knows his music, and knows how to carry a party's momentum. He kept our reception on track, kept in communication with us (the bride and groom), as well as with other vendors to make sure everything went smoothly.
Doug was referred to us by our caterer (another great vendor!), and we are so lucky to have found such a great entertainer!
DJ Shaw did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding reception! The music was one of the things that I focused on the most during the wedding planning, because I wanted it to be just right so that both my older and younger guests would enjoy themselves. I gave DJ Shaw a list of all the songs in the order I wanted, and on the day of the wedding, he made sure to play each one, and was able to adjust the playlist to keep the dancefloor filled the whole night! All of my friends had a BLAST and danced the whole time! He took requests and even added a few great songs I had not thought of. He was very easy to work with, clearly has many years of experience, and helped us plan each part of our reception. He also did an excellent job keeping the reception moving and it flowed very well - I really liked how he was able to introduce each part of the reception (toasts, first dances, garter/bouquet toss, cake cut, etc), and talked just the right amount. He really knows what he is doing, and I would highly recommend him!
He was fantastic!!! He kept everything going smoothly and had a perfect timeline for our night.
He made house visits to go over things with us before the wedding and was so relaxed and professional.
Very knowledgeable about music for younger kids.
We were very impressed!
Vendor response to review
Amanda & Matt...thank you so much for your kind words. The reception was great because of the two of you. I'm glad that you enjoyed your reception. Congratulations and enjoy your life together.
We were really grateful to have found Doug. He helped us with song selections and the cocktail hour and dinner music. The day of our wedding, Doug made sure we were taking care of completely. He was so attentive and put us at ease that we were thrilled! He kept the party going and the music playing. We had a video played before we entered the hall and without asking he helped set it up and hooked up his sound system. He made sure our day was special. He is a DJ at Jackson's (downtown Tampa) so we also got to listen to him as well. The only down side was we couldn't get a hold of him right away.
I've had the pleasure of working with Doug for many years. He is highly involved in Tampa Bay DJ Association and Wedding Event Professional of Tampa Bay. Doug has a vast collection of music for any special event and he will make your party a complete success!
Always a professional, Doug is highly sought after in the Tampa Bay area. He will be the entertainer you want for your party or event.

Always hire a full-time professional for your wedding. Meet with them before you hire them to make sure that whoever you choose will be a good fit for you and your fiance's personality. Check references. Talk to former clients as well as a other wedding professionals who have worked with the DJ you are considering. Don't base your decision strictly upon price. In the wedding industry you do get what you pay for. It would make no sense to save money on the DJ; but have everyone leave your reception early because the DJ you have hired can't keep a crowd dancing. Do your homework. Your choice of entertainment will have a great impact on your reception's success.
