Shawn was such a joy to work with. From the beginning of planning he was quick to respond with any questions or concerns we had. We originally found him for our violinist since he was willing to play any music we wanted. Our ceremony was non traditional and he was such a help in picking songs that would work together nicely during the ceremony. Because he was so easy and fun to work with we decided to use him as our DJ too and we are very happy we did. Shawn customized our music to our liking and even threw in some violin during songs and really impressed our guests. We had so many compliments about our DJ after the wedding and everyone thought he was a friend of ours because he was so down to earth and fun. For a stressed out bride planning a wedding it was refreshing to have someone with his talent and experience that we knew we could count on. We would definitely recommend Shawn for both violin and DJ.

Shawn did a fabulous job at both our wedding ceremony and reception cocktail hour. He plays the violin beautifully. He was serious when he said he would arrange and work to perform any song we requested. I never heard ,"No," to any of my song ideas. He also coordinated with both our priest and vocalist to ensure timing was correct etc. He responds quickly to all emails.
Thanks again Shawn! We could not have been more pleased.

Shawn is such a great performer and I'm so glad we had him at our wedding ceremony. He was so easy to work with and prior to the wedding he reached out a few times to get to know us better and to get a better understanding of our thoughts/expectations for music for our wedding. Shawn was willing to learn any song that we wanted to hear for the ceremony. He arrived early so he was all set up prior to guests arriving, and he stayed after the ceremony a bit as well so we got to enjoy his music while guests were leaving and we were taking photos. Received a number of compliments from our wedding guests about how beautifully Shawn performed. I highly recommend Shawn for your wedding or event. Can't thank you enough for making our ceremony perfect!

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.
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.
