About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Shawn Gillie Entertainment is a wedding DJ and entertainment company based out of Albany, New York. They offer DJ services for weddings and all occasions throughout the upstate NY area. Shawn and his staff are extremely professional and do their very best to create a fun and memorable atmosphere for your day. To ensure your DJ is prepared, they send out a questionnaire prior to your wedding to collect all of the information they’ll need. This will cover all of the basics on their end so you aren't distracted from your guests and the dance floor on your big day.

Experience

Shawn has been performing at weddings and other special events since 1999. He has also been on radio stations throughout the Albany area since the late 1990s. You can currently hear him on Albany's Number 1 Hit Music Station, FLY 92.3. He's also been on such as B95, 107.7 GNA, 100.9 The Cat, Kiss FM, and more.

Services Offered

Shawn Gillie Entertainment plays a wide variety of musical genres based on you and your guests' likes. Although he works in Top 40 radio the songs he chooses to play at your reception will be based on your preferences. You are welcome to make a must-play list, a do-not-play list, or simply let Shawn use his years of experience to mix it up for the crowd. Leading up to your wedding, you’ll have a consultation to discuss all of the details of your event as well as other services you may need. Shawn Gillie Entertainment provides a mobile DJ unit that can be easily moved. If you are having your wedding ceremony on the same grounds as your reception but in a different location, it is not a problem for them to provide music for both as long as there is power close by.

  • Microphones
  • Sound/PA system

We had so much fun!!!

As did all of our guests! Shawn understood the assignment, as I told him we would have an older crowd at our wedding. The median age was probably 60 to 65. He knew exactly what to do to get everybody up and dancing... And when my 70+ year old uncle requested Lady Gaga, he got exactly what he wanted! Shawn was excellent with communication and understanding some sensitive family issues as well. We danced, we played games, everyone had a blast! Thank you, Shawn, for everything!!!

Shawn packed the dance floor!!

Shawn provided the entertainment for our October 7 wedding and we could not be happier that we hired him!

Hiring a DJ can be tricky because it's one vendor you really can't "trial" before your big day. Shawn took away a lot of that stress with a comprehensive questionnaire he had us fill out ahead of the wedding. We also sent him a list of do not play songs and vibe suggestions, but trusted him to read the room to keep the dance floor packed all night. We also really appreciated that Shawn was there to curate an enjoyable vibe -- not to hear himself talk on the microphone all night. He also played a great mix of music that was suitable for guests of all ages and backgrounds, yet still felt cohesive when played one after the next. A true professional!

Our guests had a blast dancing the night away, and many of them told us how much they loved Shawn's DJing in the days following the wedding!

Shawn was amazing!

Shawn was amazing from start to finish… he was so attentive, organized, and seriously the best DJ. He kept our wedding on the dance floor the whole night and the glow package was such a hit. Don’t forget to add his other services!!! Friends and family we’re obsessed with the audio guest book and Photo Booth. I can not thank Shawn enough for such an amazing time.
