Nathalie and Mark Fiebig (December 17th, 2016) - Shawn was absolutely a pleasure to work with. He was responsive, incredibly professional and just a joy to be around. His choice of music was perfect and he helped me coordinate singing for my husband on our wedding day and helped me keep it a secret. Shawn also provided us with a template for a wedding day timeline and then took the time to customize it to our needs. He kept our guests engaged and dancing the night away. I could go on and on but this guy is the best !!! My husband and I own a bar and restaurant and we are very particular people. Shawn provided us with the utmost level of service and we are so grateful !
Lisa and Nathan Branch (November 12th, 2016) - Shawn was AMAZING!!!!! He was very attentive to our needs as a couple and was a crowd pleaser for sure :) I would highly recommend him any event, especially weddings. Thank You Shawn for a very memorable evening.
Megan and Peter Angell (September 24th, 2016) - Shawn was the perfect DJ in every way. Seriously, if you are looking for a professional, experienced, and amazing DJ for your wedding, look no further. We feel very lucky to have found Shawn and that he was available for our day! We planned our wedding from overseas, and he was super accommodating chatting with us on the phone, and then setting time aside the week before our wedding when we were in FL to meet with us and discuss all the logistical pieces we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. He provided us with very helpful lists of songs as thought starters, and helped us create the timeline that suited OUR wedding based on his plentiful experience DJing other weddings. Shawn arrived early on our wedding day, giving us absolutely no concerns that he would be there for us when we needed him. He was extremely polite, courteous, respectful, and helped make our day special in every way. He helped our officiant (best friend) get mic'ed up for the ceremony, and perfectly played our music through the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We gave him a list of songs that we liked, and he filled in the gaps based on the style of music we had chosen. He kept the evening moving, acting as our MC and helping us with things like cutting the cake :). I don't have a single negative thing to say about our entire interaction with Shawn, which is a great feeling after all the planning that goes into a wedding.
Chad & Mallory Witherspoon (July 16th, 2016) - Where do I begin? I met Shawn at my sisters 30th birthday bash where he was DJing! I knew then and there that I had to have him DJ at my wedding! He was so fun, and made the party that much better! Well, he out did himself at my wedding. First, he had this most amazing idea to start off our wedding...can't tell his secret but what I can say is that he got everyone on the dance floor. I'm not much of a music listener so I just gave him a few songs I liked and he went from there. I loved every song, and never got off the dance floor. He timed everything perfectly (because we know how times always end up going later) the cake cutting, the bouquet toss, etc. he didn't miss a beat!!! The most amazing thing that Shawn did was at the end. Again, I can't tell his secrets because everyone would steal them. Let's put it this way, Chad & I were in the middle with everyone surrounding us. The amount of love I felt was unreal. I would have never thought about what he did, but so grateful that he did it. It was honestly my favorite part of the wedding, and it happened because of him! He is the best around, and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone...he WILL make your wedding that much more amazing! I'm so thankful he was our DJ, and can't wait to hire him again! Again, you want the best..you should only hire Aries Entertainment!
Kelly and Jesus Colon Nazario (June 4th, 2016) - Shawn is absolutely incredible! I know weddings are crazy to plan, and I had college, graduation, and moving a month before my wedding, so I had my hands full. Shawn was so helpful, always responded quickly even when I took weeks to respond, and he made sure our wedding was incredible. My family listens to country, and my husband likes Latin music, and Shawn's music selection was incredible! Not to mention he really hosted the wedding, making sure our grand entrance was surprising to our guests and amazing for us. All of our guests had a blast and the dance floor was full! I cannot even begin to write how amazing Shawn was, and he is incredible for putting up with all of my craziness. I would HIGHLY recommend him for anyone looking for a DJ. Shawn was easily the best vendor experience we had at our wedding.
Shawn is simply the best.
Ashley and Addison Webb (May 21st, 2016) - Shawn is AMAZING! He was so helpful and flexible during the planning phase and we were blown away at how great he was at our wedding. He played the perfect cocktail hour music and once the dance floor opened we never stopped dancing! We've received many, many comments from all of our guests about how much they enjoyed our DJ and what a great job he did. I would recommend him for everyone!
Deanna And Scott Adamson (April 30th, 2016) - Shawn was great he was extremely accommodating and friendly with myself my guest and other vendors. Planning a destination wedding can be difficult as we live in Tampa and our wedding was in the Keys, but he made it easy. Thank you Shawn!
Lelsie and Ryan Trujillo (April 17th, 2016) - Shawn Stazzone is Simply AMAZING!!! My husband and I met him through Our DJ Russ Ginsberg and the two work very well together. It was a nice relief to not be worried about anything. My husband and I used Shawn for the Lighting for our reception... IT WAS BEAUTIFUL and exactly what we asked for. We wanted all the uplighting on the walls teal and white during intros and dinner. During the dancing the walls were rainbow and so much fun!! All of my guests were saying that our wedding was the best one they have ever been too, I owe a lot of that to Shawn. The lighting sets the mood for any event, and I have to say the mood was FANTASTIC!! People, if you are planning your wedding and think "lights are simple." or "not important", let me just say... YOU ARE WRONG!!! it is very important and you need someone you can rely on, and Shawn is your guy!! Thank you again Shawn for everything !!! xoxoxox
Lindsey and RJ Farina (April 9th, 2016) - I first met Shawn at a wedding expo in Islamorada, Florida which is where our wedding was held. From the beginning he was so personal and really listened to everything we wanted. He met us at a Starbucks near our home and never tried to sway us from our vision. He provided an atmosphere from the beginning when our guests began to arrive until our sparkler send off at the very end that just made the whole day into our perfect dream. He even helped my now husband surprise me with a song while my husbands friend played guitar in the background that was out of this world incredible and could not have been possible without Shawn. Seriously if you want a DJ who really listens to what you want and makes your day all you could dream of and more you it is Shawn! Thanks a million!
Alejandra and Marc du Chaussee (March 12th, 2016) - Shawn was more than what we could ask for. He reached out, coordinated events and helped us build a timeline, was very quick with his responses to our questions, and truly engaged our guests during the reception. Anyone who books him for DJ and MC will get above and beyond service.
Kim and Anthony Tomasi (March 11th, 2016) - Shawn provided the utmost best time and music. I would recommend his services for any event that you may have planned. He has now done two of my children's' weddings and my 35th year wedding renewal. He has truly provided the best service. Thanks again for everything Shawn!!!
Margot and Kevin Kitchen (December 31st, 2015) - DJ Stazz was awesome to work with. He was everything we hoped for. His kept the flow of the wedding and reception moving, played an amazing list of music, and was very helpful with ideas and suggestions to make our day unforgettable. He stayed a couple of extra hours and also helped us ring in the New Year. I can't say enough good things about him. Our day was amazing and he is one of the reasons for that.
Rachel and Andre Lacov (November 14th, 2015) - We met with Shawn about a month before the wedding. We found him to be very friendly and professional and he listened to our ideas and understood what we wanted for our event. We spent over an hour with him and he gave us a comfortable feeling that he wanted to actually get to know us as people and not just a number. We wanted something mellower for our early morning affair and he understood that. We provided him a list of artists and songs that we felt captured the essence of the theme and let him work his magic from there. He also provided us with a list of special wedding moments that we could list specific songs for if we choose to. He MC’d the reception wonderfully. We should mention that due to inclement weather, our entire wedding started an hour late. Shawn wasn’t fazed at all, and rolled with it. He must have moved his equipment in and out of the rain more than a few times every time it started to clear, it would start to rain again. Overall we fully enjoyed ourselves. His music selection was spot on and we highly recommend Aries Entertainment, especially Shawn.
Yvonne and Scott Bissonnette (October 11th, 2015) - Shawn was awesome for our wedding! He went above and beyond great with the music and the personal touches. Shawn was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was always willing and able to meet with us when we wanted to talk face to face. He took care of everything, there was very little that we had to do. Our wedding day was spectacular. Shawn had everything set up for the ceremony and the reception. He used uplighting and all kinds of great stuff. The DJ is a huge factor whether your guests have fun at your wedding, and Shawn rocked it! We only gave him a few must play songs and left the music choices up to him. He rocked the crowd! He had everyone up and out of their seats and on the dance floor all night long! Seriously, all the way up to the last song the dance floor was packed. I highly recommend Shawn to DJ for a wedding or any event. I have told anyone I know that is interested in a DJ to get him quickly before someone else does, you won’t be disappointed at all!
Nikki and Jason Scott (October 3rd, 2015) - First off I would like to take this time to extend my appreciation to you for a job well done at my wedding. As I am looking at the video, all I can say is Aries Entertainment did a wonderful job. From the interacting with the guest to the overall professionalism that you showed. Words cannot express how much you made our wedding a day to remember.
Amanda and Brent Powell (April 11th, 2015) - Shawn was great to work with. He always responded quickly to emails and was always easy to get in touch with. He arrived early to our event in the Keys to set up his own equipment and was even helping our coordinator. He did a great job announcing our main events and was very flexible. He was quick to respond to any request I had at our wedding and kept the dance floor going all night and even finished off the night with my husband and I's college fight song!
Mercedes Hernandez (March 28th, 2015) - I honestly cannot say thank you enough! Our son's birthday party was a huge success and it was mainly because of you. You did an awesome job and everyone loved the music/atmosphere/games. I couldn't have asked for more, you felt like part of the family and not a stranger so it was extremely nice having you there.
Noah and Lauren Pransky (February 28th, 2015) - We had a top-notch experience with Shawn/Aries from the moment we first spoke to the last dance. Of all the vendors we had for our wedding the Keys, he stood apart from the rest with his outstanding communication and preparation leading up the event. He also took the direction we gave him and ran with it, crafting three different, awesome playlists for the cocktail hour, dinner, and then dancing. Our friends and family alike raved about his acoustic choices for cocktail hour, and he struck the perfect tone throughout the night too. A true professional, we'd recommend Shawn & Aries Entertainment to anyone planning an event in South Florida!
Daniel and Priscilla Moesly (October 18th, 2014) - Hiring Aries Entertainment was a awesome and memorial event. Shawn was so personal with us and made our day extra special and all of my guests raved about the "DJ" after the wedding was over.
Kate and Anthony Bertolina (October 17th, 2014) - Everything about Aries Entertainment was very professional. We had Shawn as our DJ and he played all the music that our guests loved and everyone had so much fun at the reception, I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He even found a "special request" song from a movie for us. Aries Entertainment made the job of finding a DJ and planning out wedding so easy and stress-free for us. I look forward to working with you again in the future and referring friends and family your way. Thanks!
Shamieka Goins (October 10th, 2014) - I didn't know what to expect doing business with someone I never met, needed for my Wedding, and had to communicate and pay long distance. Once I did the initial meeting with DJ Shawn...I knew this was our DJ! I worked with a lot of vendors to pull this wedding off in Miami, but hands down he was the best to work with. Their customer service is impeccable, their website/client portal made it easy to pay (track payments), he was very "in tune" to what we wanted. However, NOTHING...topped the actually night. We crossed genre music (which was a huge deal for us). He didn't just stick to one type of music, and he wasn't a DJ that just played to entertain himself, he really made sure the crowd had a great time. Three weeks later and my family still talks about the great time they had with him. He was just like family. I want everyone to experience a night with Aries Entertainment. Again, thank you for making my wedding process easy and making my wedding night memorable.
Jan-Marie and Donny Meadows (September 6th, 2014) - Ahhhh-May-Zing!!!! Shawn was our DJ and Emcee for our wedding at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale and was fabulous!!!!!!!! He was very professional, prompt, and a lot of fun!!!! Our party rocked all night!!! We HIGHLY recommend Aries Entertainment for your next event!! You will NOT be disappointed!!!!!!
Kathryn Cartier (August 23rd, 2014) - We hired DJ Shawn for our daughter's Sweet 16. He was very observant and responsive to every situation. We gave him only a little direction and took care of the rest and gave us a wonderful experience!
Kiana and Austin Gadson (July 5th, 2014) - We booked with Aries Entertainment for our very stressful wedding and they made it both easy going and amazing. Shawn was the DJ for our event. He DJ'd the entire day ... Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, and Reception. Not only was he professional but he was EXTREMELY knowledgeable, talented and reliable. He also provided incredible up-lighting for our event that really changed the room and gave it some OOMPHH at an amazing rate. He was so sweet in all of our communications no matter what was going on, and even helped keep me on task for other things that I was falling behind in (I was both the bride and the wedding planner). He came through on so many levels, it's hard to fit them all in one review. The quality of music that he provided was both fun and tasteful. My now husband and I had a tough time coming up with all the songs that we needed due to our lack of music knowledge. After coming up with a few selections, we gave Shawn an idea of what we wanted and he took care of the rest. He picked perfectly suited music for an elegant, yet fun affair. He adjusted EXTREMLY well to last minute changes, and did more than what was expected to make our event everything we could ever imagine. We recommend him without any reserves. No one else could have done the job that he did with such professionalism while maintaining a positive and friendship building attitude. He's a real down to earth guy who will meet you where you're at and take your event to the next level. If you choose another DJ, I promise you, your missing out on one of the greatest DJ's South Florida has to offer.
Tara and Carlos (December 29th, 2013) - You guys did such an amazing job at our wedding. DJ Anthony provided the perfect mix of Spanish and English music for our multi-cultural guests! Everyone had such a great time on the dance floor. He kept it going all night, was extremely professional, played all the songs we requested, and made the whole experience stress free, fun, and amazing! We would definitely recommend them for a wonderful wedding experience! Thank you Aries Entertainment!! It was perfect and we couldn't have asked for anything more!
Stephanie and Adam Symonette (October 20th, 2013) - For my wedding I had DJ Shawn! He was wonderful! He was knowledgeable, funny, and everything a DJ should be. He got the party going! There was not one person sitting down, everyone was up and having a blast. I got so many complements on how amazing he was and what a great time everyone had. I gave him a 5 and if he could give more I would! My husband and I could not have asked for a better DJ. The quality of service was unbelievable! He was completely professional and on your wedding day he is worth the money. I have been to weddings before where the band was not the best. Sometimes we spend a little more to get exactly what we have dreamed about! Girls, this is your wedding day, enjoy it and I promise Aries Entertainment will help you make your wedding day an unforgettable experience. Mine was and I owe most, if not all, to Shawn. He got the party started and kept it going all night long!!!!!! :-)
Lauren and Jeff Hall (June 22nd, 2013) - Aries Entertainment is amazing! Shawn was the most friendly, accommodating, talented, and reasonable DJ we met with, and trust me, we met with many! Shawn made sure every moment of our wedding music was perfect from beginning to end. He was there to answer any question or deal with any concern day or night! He also did our lighting which was beautifully done. Not only did he do our wedding, but my dad's 60th birthday too! It was amazing, everyone was off their feet having an amazing time! It is evident in everything that he does is his passion! We would highly recommend Shawn to anyone out there looking for a DJ for a special night!
Melissa Fulkerson (March 16th, 2013) - We hosted a Sweet 16 for our daughter and I was nervous that the floor would be filled with either adults or teenagers, but not both. Not the case with Aries Entertainment! The dance floor was packed all night long! EVERYONE had a blast! I had sent him a timeline and he took care of all the timing of the night so we could enjoy the party with our daughter!
Christina and Jose Cabrera (September 6th, 2011) - We would absolutely recommend Aries Entertainment for your wedding or other special event! They were extremely easy to work with, their prices were much more competitive than anyone else we contacted, and they did an incredible job entertaining our guests. Shawn was amazing! We still get compliments from friends and family about how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing all night! Shawn accommodated all of our requests from our initial meeting and was very professional from beginning to end. He did the music for our outdoor ceremony (with mics for us and the officiant), cocktail hour, and our reception. Shawn had every song that we wanted and knew what to play to keep all age groups out on the dance floor!
