Shawn brought so much magic to our ceremony!

Shawn is a master at his craft! Shawn played our ceremony music and it just tied everything together so magically. The sound was impeccable, and he was SO professional! He was such a delight & easy vendor to work with, despite 3 date changes due to COVID. We never had the chance to meet prior to the wedding day because we were out of state, but I had zero worries or stress about that. Thank you, Shawn for bringing even more romance & emotion to our wedding than we thought possible!

Absolutely amazing

My husband and I were married November 11th, 2023 and I knew I wanted a violinist for our ceremony. After lots of online searching, I was blown away by the reviews and award winnings Shawn had on his page. After our first video session I knew we had made the right decision. Shawn was wonderful to work with and very down to earth, listening to everything we wanted and even putting some of his own feels into our song choices. I would not hesitate to ever hire him or recommend him to our family and friends. We had lots of compliments on his playing and utmost talent. Thank you adding that perfect touch to our special day!

We love working with Shawn! He's always our first choice recommendation because he represents our high standards and guarantee of client/customer satisfaction. Shawn is very accommodating, easy to work with, and very flexible. If you want a phenomenal musical experience, hire Shawn Boucke.

The Iroquois Club The Iroquois Club Banquet Halls

We had the pleasure of listening to Shawn's beautiful music twice in one weekend - at a wedding where he performed for their ceremony, and also at our bridal show that we hosted. He is a wonderful person to work with - easy-going, really listens to people, and he plays beautiful music. I'm sure other couples will be hiring him though, so I'm looking forward to seeing him perform at The Iroquois Club again soon!

Shawn played for the ceremony of a wedding I shot and his music was so beautiful I would have hired him for my wedding. He is so professional and does an amazing job. I would refer any brides to him.
