The Wedding DJ you absolutely NEED!

Choosing DJ Shakey was one of the best decisions for our wedding! I've known of Julie and her epic background in the NYC music scene for some time and what she delivered was nothing short of amazing! She took our eclectic music tastes/requests and fashioned an amazing journey throughout every part of our wedding celebration--from arrival, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing! Our wedding audience are very much into music with a range of genre's and eras--from Edith Piaf, to Black Sabbath, Dua Lipa, and Drum n Bass/electronic tracks. Julie was able to cater to everyone while also reading the crowd on the fly and being flexible with changing logistics and requests. All of our guests mentioned that she did an incredible job and they particularly loved the music she played. I encourage you to choose DJ Shakey for your wedding--you absolutely won't be disappointed!

DJ Shakey is the BEST!

DJ Shakey was incredible to work with from start to finish. She really was a wizard in terms of blending our different styles of music, and kept the dance floor lively all night. If you're thinking about booking her, DO IT!!! Our wedding was amazing and we would book her again anytime!

Flawless execution, then rocked it on the dance floor

I always loved DJ Shakey, and she didn't disappoint at our wedding! Our pre-wedding discussions on what we wanted were very clear and straightforward. She did everything right with the processional, recessional, announcing speeches, etc. And then completely rocked it on the dance floor; quite a few of our guests complimented us on our DJ choice
