Shawn was a dream to work with! I would recommend him to anyone who needs a killer violinist. From the moment I heard him playing at a bridal show, I knew he needed to play at my wedding! I was thrilled to learn that he was available for our wedding! He was wonderful to work with and made us feel so comfortable. He was very clear that he was there to help make our day special and he would do whatever he could to make it perfect! He sent a little sample for my sister to practice with, which was super helpful and made my sister more comfortable for the day of performance. Everything was amazing and sounded spectacular. I would definitely ask him to perform at other events. You cannot go wrong with him!! More...

Shawn was simply fantastic throughout the entire process. He has an easy-to-use template for song choices and is incredibly responsive and professional. He showed up early to the ceremony to get a feel for the grounds and pick the right spot to play. The music was beautiful, both before, during, and after the ceremony. We would recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a violinist on their big day. More...

We hired Shawn for our wedding in South Lyon that took place on July 7. Throughout the whole planning process, Shawn was extremely professional and reliable, and he was very flexible when we had to make a few last minute changes. Thank you Shawn!!!

I am SO glad we found shawn for our wedding! He elevated our ceremony and cocktail hour exactly how I dreamed of. He was wonderful to work with from our initial meeting with showing us some of his work, until a few weeks before with finalizing everything! he even took a last minute request for a mashup of songs he had never played which came out so beautifully! He worked seamlessly with our chapel and was so kind/patient throughout. His work is beautiful and has a wide range of songs with flexibility to learn new ones. Hire him now!!!:) More...

I'll start off by saying Shawn is an absolute rock star. Any stress we had regarding musical entertainment was immediately relieved by how easy going and open minded Shawn was to work with. We were quite indecisive in regards to what pieces we wanted played during certain parts of the wedding and Shawn came up with a game plan and smashed it out of the park. During our first dance he made us feel like we were in a fairytale as we danced with our own violinist strolling around the dance floor, if you are looking for a truly magical, one of a kind experience for you and your guests Shawn is definitely the man for the job. I can't even count the amount of compliments we received about how awesome he was. Our wedding just wouldnt have been as special without him. At least 25 stars are needed to accurately rate his talent, highly reccomended!Read Less

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! More...

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 played at our wedding during the ceremony and the reception. I cannot say enough good things about him and EVERYONE came up to us to tell us how great the music was. He dealt with a tricky venue and literally had to run up and down stairs all night and had a smile the whole time. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Shawn! Thank you for a magical evening! More...

Shawn played the ceremony music for my wedding as well as for cocktail hour. He was a pleasure to work with and affordable. He played 3 songs that we requested for the ceremony and also learned another song that my now husband planned as a surprise. I definitely recommend Shawn - he was super friendly, made sure we were comfortable and all set with everything, and was very responsive to all questions. We received a lot of compliments on his playing and it gave our wedding a special touch. More...

Shawn was so great to work with. He was very accommodating to all of the requests my husband and family were looking for. He is very talented and can truly play (or will learn) anything that is requested. He has great energy that is contagious by guests. From the moment we met with Shawn to discuss what we were looking for, his music made us all emotional because it was just that great. We wanted more classical for pre wedding and modern music for the cocktail hour and he nailed it! I would highly recommend Shawn for any celebration, but especially Weddings!!! Thanks Shawn! More...

When first planning my wedding, I was asked what kind of music are you going to have for your ceremony. Immediately... I started panicking! With all of the details this must have slipped my mind. After hiring Shawn, the music I totally panicked about became ONE OF THE BEST parts of our wedding! Shawn is INCREDIBLE! Not only did he play our ceremony music he played all of our cocktail hour music as he strolled through the barn with his violin. One of the most elegant, beautiful, one of a kind sounds that totally made the ambiance and feeling of our wedding. I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!

The planning process with Shawn was one of my husband's and I's favorite part of the planning process. We were able to skype with him and during this time any song that came to mind he would just whip out on his violin and play during the skype call.

He is extremely professional, fun, genuine, and willing to play anything you desire to make your wedding or event dreams come true! Will absolutely hire again!

Shawn is AMAZING. He not only DJ'd our wedding, he also was violinist for our ceremony AND cocktail hour before our reception. Everyone at the wedding gave rave reviews. It was so awesome how he incorporated the violin into more modern music. He strolled around playing the violin during the dinner hour too. There is no doubt how absolutely talented Shawn is. In addition to the day of, Shawn was wonderful to work with leading up to our wedding. He was very responsive and for every time I said "I don't know" he was right there with so many options and ideas that lined up perfectly with what we wanted. My absolute favorite moment of my wedding day was Shawn's idea. I walked down the aisle to him playing "A thousand years" by Christina Perry. He asked if we could play that song as our last song for the night. It resulted in our closest friends and family making a circle around me and my husband and it was the best ending to the night. We highly recommend Shawn to anyone who is looking for someone who is so much more than a DJ. More...

I would put a lower mark somewhere to show this review is real, but Shawn deserves all 5s! I was a pain trying to be sneaky and plan the party with limited communication.

Shawn made our special day have such a unique, beautiful, and personalized touch. I have always pictured a violinist performing at my wedding and couldn't imagine having anyone more kind, skilled, professional, or down-to-earth as he was. He took into consideration every detail of our big day, down to the very last note. Not only did he arrive early to play for our guests, he stayed after our ceremony to play more as myself, my husband, our immediate family, and bridal party were taking pictures. Knowing my fondness for Disney, he chose to play a variety of beautiful classical pieces and it just added to the amazing post ceremony moments. I would absolutely recommend Shawn to anyone! More...

Shawn is first and foremost a great person. He sincerely cares about your event, in this case our wedding, and asks thoughtful and thorough questions. He is willing to give suggestions, but never at the expense of what you want to do, and he reiterates that regularly. He played beautifully during our ceremony and afterward during our cocktail hour and it really added such an elegant touch to our day. Thank you for everything Shawn! More...

Shawn is incredible! He played violin during our ceremony and then was our DJ at the reception, he truly exceeded all of our expectations. Shawn went above and beyound for our special day, he is very detailed and organized, professional, personable, honest, punctual, dependable and has a heart of gold. We felt as though he treated our event as if it were his own as he put his heart into all that he did. He was quick to answer our questions and took away any stress or worry we might have had. Our friends and family were blown away at how beautiful his performance was and how fun and upbeat our reception was. He is one of a kind and the secret to every amazing wedding and event! Of all the vendors we worked with Shawn provided me and my husband and most relaxation, we knew he had everything handled and that he saw our vision and would execute it. We feel incredibly blessed that Shawn and his wife were apart of our special day and we highly recommend him for any of your event needs. You don't meet people as genuine and awesome as them too often these days... We honestly can't say enough good things about Shawn, five stars in an understatement! More...

Shawn did a wonderful job performing at my wedding ceremony. He learned our music, had several consultation and planning phone calls with me (I'm out of state)--even performing our songs over the phone to make sure I felt comfortable with how they sounded. My parents were impressed and grateful that Shawn continued to play until the last guest left the reception--what a classy touch. I am so glad I chose Shawn to perform at our wedding. If I could do it all over again, I would choose him again! More...

It's hard to find a starting point to say enough good things about Shawn because he did a phenomenal job. Leading up to our wedding he made the process incredibly easy, asked the right questions, and made it a point to understand what we envisioned for the wedding. On the big day, he was set up well in advance and did a final check before getting started. During the wedding and reception, Shawn did his thing without needing much from us, and it turned out awesome. Our guests loved the music, but they loved the electric violin even more. Our guests especially loved it when Shawn played the violin while dancing during some of the songs. He made our entire evening easy and incredibly fun, so I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a unique addition to their wedding. Oh yeah, I also have to thank Shawn for playing me down the aisle to the James Bond theme. It was a dream come true! Thanks again Shawn! More...

We cannot say enough about Shawn. We absolutely loved him!! He is extremely talented, professional, and friendly! We had Shawn playing for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and I wish we had him for the whole night! He is great at communication and very organized. He made great suggestions and helped us pick songs for each part of the night. He can literally play anything. My mom really wanted a random, certain song to be played when the parents were walking down the aisle and Shawn was able to make it happen. We've had many of our guests reach out to us after the wedding to tell us how awesome our violinist was! One of my favorite parts of the night was him playing the Game of Thrones theme song and the bridal party LOVING it and asked him to play it again. I want to have a million more parties just to have Shawn there! More...

Shawn was wonderful!!! We booked him for our wedding and he was exactly what we were hoping for. His electric violin makes it sound like you have more than one person playing yet he is able to improvise to make your ceremony flow perfectly. Our wedding was beautiful
and the music made it so elegant. If you are looking for a violinist book him now! He was also so responsive and professional which as a bride helped ease my mind for the big day. Look no further Shawn is your guy!

Shawn was truly awesome to work with. He is such a talented individual!! We did a somewhat non-traditional wedding, so during the precessional we requested he play songs on his acoustic violin like "Marry You" by Bruno Mars and "Sugar" by Maroon 5. It sounded so beautiful on the violin!! He also played a few traditional wedding songs as well. One of the greatest things about Shawn is that he is truly a multi-faceted individual. Not only did he play acoustic during our ceremony, but he also played electric violin during our cocktail hour and dinner AND he was our DJ at the end of the night for dancing. We received so many compliments from our guests raving about him. I would absolutely recommend Shawn for your wedding if you're looking for a violinist and DJ. Thank you for making our wedding day spectacular!! More...

We cannot say enough great thing about Shawn!! My husband and I knew as soon as we heard Shawn play, that we needed him at our wedding ceremony. When we first had met with him, we asked to hear some certain songs, which sounded more beautiful than you'd imagine!!! Then, when we had no ideas on what type of music we wanted for specific times during the ceremony, he did some impromptu, which sounded equally as amazing! Multiple guests complimented on how great he sounded. The violinist was a perfect romantic touch for our outdoor ceremony, as it made an impression on all guests. I would HIGHLY recommend Shawn to ANY and ALL brides and grooms-to-be!! More...

Not sure where to even start! Shawn was beyond amazing! From communication before the big day, to communication on the big day, to his playing violin, to his DJing..Absolutely PHENOMENAL! The ceremony music he played was so beautiful. He's beyond talented! Shawn knows how to get people on the dance floor. Our guests especially loved when he would play violin along with the songs. It was mind blowing! I have to say my absolute favorite part of the night was the very last song. Our guests made a circle around us while Shawn played violin inside the circle with my husband and I dancing. I will NEVER forget that moment. And thats the experience you will get from Shawn. Seriously..book him now! More...

Shawn acted as a violinist at our wedding ceremony & DJ at our wedding reception. Shawn was great to work with! Setting up our day was effortless with Shawn who was very organized and professional. We had very specific ideas of the music we wanted for our ceremony and dinner. Shawn made a great effort to learn the music and was very prepared on the day of the wedding. The music he played for our ceremony really set the tone of a beautiful and elegant occasion. During dinner, Shawn played great music and added in the personal touch of walking the reception hall and playing violin beautifully over the top of the tracks. As the night went on, Shawn kept people moving on the dance fall as our DJ! He did a great job of feeling the energy in the room and helping everyone let loose and enjoy themselves. During the wedding and since, we have received nothing but high praise for how unique Shawn was as a DJ and violinist. We would make the same decision to go with Shawn all over again. The value Shawn added to our wedding was worth double what we paid! We highly recommend him! More...

Shawn did my ceremony music and was also the DJ at our wedding on August 12, 2017. I was looking for someone who was unique and brought something different to the table. I'm so glad I found Shawn and booked him because he outperformed our expectations. We had an outdoor wedding on a windy day and that did not seem to pose a problem. He was super early and it was so nice to open the windows and hear him practicing. During our reception, he was out there on the dance floor showing everyone the dance moves to several songs. I have gotten multiple compliments on him since the wedding. Thanks Shawn for going above and beyond! Amanda & Greg More...

Shawn blew me away with his talent! He went above and beyond to listen to what we wanted, and had the flexibility not only to learn new music for us only a few days before the wedding, but also the ability to accommodate accompanying my cousin who decided to sing at the wedding too! He took the time to meet with us virtually (we live in New York), and play several different pieces that he had learned at my request. Shawn was professional, polite, charming, and so much fun to talk to at every point. Shawn added an elegant touch to the wedding, and our guests were thrilled. I can't recommend him enough! More...

Shawn was one of our favorite vendor picks for our wedding. He was fantastic from the start of the process a year before our wedding (May 2017) all the way to the Don't Stop Believin' end of the night. Funny, friendly, casual, he made the process incredibly easy and worked with all of our requests and had an answer for all of our questions.

Having Shawn play the violin beautifully for the ceremony and during dinner, then switch to DJ duties for dancing (while adding in a few solos on the violin to spice up some of the music) was awesome. He came up with funny and creative ideas to really make the music far more interesting than most DJs we've been around.

Tremendous thanks to Shawn for adding a special flare to our wedding that made the day all that more special.

Shawn was absolutely wonderful! We hired him to play the violin for our ceremony and DJ our reception. From the very start he was easy to work with and invited us to his studio to hear him play in person. We were very impressed with his skills and hired him on the spot. He was also LGBT friendly which was important to us as well. He meet with us via Skype a week or two before our wedding date to verify all the details. The day of the wedding, Shawn was very organized and made sure everything went smoothly. His wife came to assist, she was awesome as well. The violin music gave us that extra touch we were looking for during our ceremony. He literally can play anything and it sounds so beautiful. During the reception he kept everyone on the dance floor. He also got out there and showed our guests how to do some of the choreographed dances and played his violin to keep people's attention. I have heard nothing but great feedback and complements since our weddings. Everyone has been taking about Shawn and how awesome was. I even had someone ask for his contact info for their upcoming wedding. I would recommend Shawn to any couple looking for a DJ and/or musician. I would also hire him for any futures needs I may have. You can't go wrong with Shawn Boucke, hire him today. Thanks Shawn for taking our special day to the next level!! More...

Shawn was simply amazing throughout the whole process. From the moment we met him at his studio to his attentive communication, we couldn't have asked for anyone better. He is SO talented! We got a ton of compliments on the music for the ceremony, which he played on the violin, and how entertaining he was for the reception. He would come right out to the dance floor and get down with the crowd! He met with us before we started the reception to make sure all of the music was good with us as well as gave us direction on how things would go. The one thing I really liked is how he sets up his equipment. Instead of looking at a bunch of cords everywhere from a computer, he uses this white stand to make things look cleaner and organized. He has a great personality and I'd tell anyone looking for a DJ to hire him in a heartbeat. More...

Shawn was the greatest choice we could have made for a musician and a DJ for our wedding!

Shawn met with us via phone, in person, and via Skype prior to our wedding. Each time he was full of advice, enthusiasm and attentiveness, to ensure that our day would be EXACTLY what we want. Well, despite all of that planning to get exactly what we wanted, Shawn FAR exceeded our expectations!

Shawn played violin for our ceremony, played strolling violin for our cocktail hour, and then was our DJ (and played along on violin a few times!) for our reception. He was absolutely perfect at reading the crowd, getting everybody excited, and even getting down and dancing/showing dances to the guests! He found a way to pump up the party without taking attention from the bride and groom.

We NEVER had an empty dance floor as a result. Everybody raved at how amazing Shawn was and how energetic he was. He was by far the best choice we could have made. He made us feel so comfortable, and really took the time to get to know us, our preferences, and our style that on our wedding day, it felt like we had a good friend that we trusted as MC and DJ to our wedding.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SHAWN!!

Absolutely amazing and professional. Most of all, Shawn knows music! We had him perform during our ceremony and DJ our reception. From the moment we met him, it was clear that he could handle anything. We used his vast experience to guide our wedding planning. The phantom of the opera themed ceremony music we requested was arranged and performed flawlessly. His DJing also was on point. In addition to punctual and professional MCing, he interacted with our guests to provide an experience everyone enjoyed and remembers. Like the other reviewers, the compliments from our guests were overflowing. More...

Shawn was unbelievable! From the first time we met him to the day of the wedding, Shawn was profession and so easy to work with. He was always quick to respond and willing to work with us. Shawn made sure he had all the music we wanted for our special day. He even went out of his way to find and buy a song for our wedding. From the ceremony to the reception all our guests raved about how good he was. Everyone thought it was so awesome how he could just jump on the dance floor and play a popular hit song. He kept the crowd dancing all night long! Shawn really did a great job for our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. We will be using him again in the future! More...

Shawn was nothing short of amazing! We are so professional throughout the entire process, from start to finish. He was extremely responsive to initial emails, super flexible the week leading up to the big day, arrived EARLY to the event, and truly gave our ceremony a special touch. To be totally honest, we wish we would have just used him for both live violin and the DJ. He has a lot of great ideas and was so helpful. We got endless compliments on his performance throughout the night. More...

We cannot say enough about Shawn and his services. He was extremely flexible throughout the whole planning process and did his best to accommodate all of our wants/needs. On top of his professionalism, his talent as a musician is really unparalleled. Our guests were so impressed by him, and we could not have been happier with how our wedding turned out in large part due to him. Highly recommend and can't wait to use him again! More...

Shawn was so amazing to work with throughout the entire process! We had a skype call with him a few weeks before our wedding to talk about everything and he was incredibly professional and helpful! He was able to offer really helpful advice as far as the night went on, and helped us plan the night to flow smooth and organized!

Now we get to the music! We danced the night away!! Shawn not only played the violin for our ceremony and cocktail hour but he brought it out and played (and danced!) along to a bunch of songs throughout the night. We had and continue to have people tell us how much they enjoyed the music and how much they loved the violin. We are so grateful to have worked with Shawn for our wedding and cannot thank him enough! Now we just need to find an excuse to have a dance party with him again!!!

If you want amazing, personal service and beautiful music for your ceremony, you MUST hire Shawn! There's a reason Shawn has an outstanding, five-star rating from all of his clients. It's because he is wonderful to work with and executes ceremony music flawlessly. We hired Shawn for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. Shawn has an amazing repetoire of music, and can play anything. We wanted to stick with classical music for our ceremony, but not the wedding "standards" (e.g., Canon in D, Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, Ava Marie, etc.). We picked some obscure pieces for him, and he played them flawlessly. Our guests liked how he strolled through the crowd, playing the violin, during our cocktail hour. He's an incredibly talented musician. And, he's SO nice! And incredibly professional. He was by far our favorite vendor to work with. More...

Shawn was absolutely amazing! We hired him to play violin during the ceremony and DJ at the reception. Our ceremony music was beautiful, Shawn went out of his way to learn new music for our songs and made sure to send us example clips of him playing during the planning process. The music during the reception was everything we could have wanted, Shawn was so interactive with the crowd, he even got out on the dance floor to show how to do the cupid shuffle!! He played along with some of the music during dinner and dancing and always looked like he was having so much fun! We had so many people come up to us and say how wonderful they thought he was. He helped to make our day perfect and will be highly recommended by me to anyone looking for a DJ. More...

Shawn played at our wedding during the ceremony and reception. Every one of our guests absolutely raved about him and so do we!

It was magical and I will recommend him to anyone who will stop long enough to listen! More...

Shawn was everything my husband and I hoped for...and then some! He played violin for our ceremony and was the DJ for our reception. From our first meeting to the end of our wedding, he was extremely professional and personable. He made a point to listen to our requests and play the songs for us that we were considering so we knew how they would sound. He helped us personalize our ceremony and reception with our music choices. During the reception/dancing, he played the electric violin along with some of the songs and our guests absolutely loved it! We got so many compliments on him (especially playing the violin during the ceremony). Shawn is the whole package and we are so glad we got to work with him. He would be (and will be) the first person I recommend to anyone looking for a musician or DJ. Thank you Shawn!

Shawn is amazing. If you are looking for someone that can do it all at a very reasonable price he is it. He was extremely responsive and meticulous planning our wedding with us.

I cannot recommend Shawn Boucke's services highly enough! Not only is he incredibly talented, but he is also is so easy to work with and went above and beyond to meet our needs. When talking to guests at the wedding and in the days following, everyone raved about how incredible he was and several asked for his contact information for upcoming events!

We hired Shawn as the musician for our ceremony as well as the DJ at our reception. As an electric violinist, Shawn provided beautiful music while guests arrived as well as for the entrance and recessional. He helped us choose the music we wanted and provided several demos in the weeks leading up to our big day. He made our entire ceremony feel even more romantic. One of the most special moments was Shawn playing the violin during me and my dad's first dance, it was absolutely perfect. As a DJ, Shawn kept the dance floor going all night! He played a great variety of music and was receptive to guests requests. He absolutely made the night!

Please consider Shawn for your next event, he is amazing!

My husband and I hired Shawn to play the violin at our ceremony and cocktail hour as well as DJ our reception. He did an outstanding job on helping us select our music pieces, give advise on what songs to play when and kept the night flowing so smoothly. One of our favorite things was having him walking around and playing the violin during dinner. We chose Shawn because of his educational background on music and it proved to be well worth it!!

Wow, what can I say about the job that Shawn did. When we first met with Shawn and he serenade us with his wonderful talent on the violin we were sold and it was great that he also DJ. On the day of the wedding he promptly show up very early to set up and cordinate the acoustic of the bulding and our outdoor ceremony while I was getting ready I could hear him warming up. Once the event began he was nothing but helpful to cordinate the day and was full of energy on the dance floor, all of our guest were impressed by his musical abilities. I would recommend him to anyone I know for a event they needed live music or a DJ. More...

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. More...

Shawn did a fantastic job for our wedding. The first time we met with him he asked in advance if there were any songs we wanted to hear in particular and had them prepared for our meeting. We wanted to have something different for our wedding and Shawn helped us make that happen between the formal violining at the ceremony and then improving at the reception along with djing. We got a lot of comments on how great our music was. We had an outdoor ceremony which it unfortunately rained at, but Shawn improvised and set up under a shelter with an amp so the guests could still hear the music. I would high recommend him for a wedding or any other event. Thanks Shawn! More...

We found Shawn on The Knot when looking for music for our wedding ceremony. We found out shortly after booking at our site that there was no electricity running out to where the ceremony was--we needed to find someone who was professional and flexible with our situation. We met and spoke with several other musicians, but were not very impressed.

I took my mom and sister with me to meet with Shawn and help me make a decision. When we showed up at his business, he was so excited to show us what he had to offer. After introductions, he pulled out all of his instruments and equipment immediately and began playing for us. He was able to show the differences in the different instruments he could use for the ceremony and the many different genres of songs that he could play. He performed several different songs he had used in the past at weddings and was able to even play songs that we were requesting to hear. We were so impressed that we booked and put down our deposit on the spot.

While picking out songs and trying to nail down details, Shawn was extremely responsive and always willing to be as flexible as possible. The day of the wedding, he showed up early to set up and make sure that everything was good to go at the ceremony site. My mom, who was making sure all of the vendors were there or had a place to set up, was very impressed that he was already there well before guests arrived. Every song that he played at the ceremony was timed perfectly and was flawless.

At the reception, several of our guests commented on the ceremony music--how great it was having a violinist and how nice of a job Shawn did. I would highly recommend Shawn for any upcoming events you may have. He is extremely professional, very flexible with music selections and is well prepared. You will not be disappointed.

The music was kid-friendly and appropriate and was enjoyable for the adults as well! We would recommend home any event and can't wait to work with him again. Such great value! More...

Shawn did an outstanding job playing violin at our wedding ceremony (with cello accompaniment) and DJ'ing our reception. We initially booked him for our ceremony only, with other plans for the reception, but when that musician double booked himself we reached out to Shawn and he came through for us seamlessly. We met in person once and did a Skype interview the week before the wedding also. Whenever I emailed him with additional items he responded within a day. He also posted a preview on YouTube of the three songs we personally requested to be arranged for the ceremony which was helpful. he is very professional as well as personable and easygoing.
We received many compliments during the reception and the next day about him strolling around with the violin during dinner. Our guests seemed to enjoy this part the most.

Shawn was a huge hit at our wedding! Many of our guests were still talking about how awesome it was to have a violinist that created ambiance during dinner and also accompanied music without being the center of attention. He even patiently walked us through our options and selection form, with helpful recommendations. I think his best quality is reading the crowd and adapting to whatever happens – even requests for Polish music he can't spell : ) More...

He is a very talented violinist. Shawn also did a great job DJing and did a perfect job of evolving the mood through the evening. He brought a great energy and a live music feel to the reception by playing his violin along with the music. Everyone loved it and we got tons of positive comments from our guests. Shawn also did a great job of helping us select musing for the evening and had lots of great suggestions and ideas, but was also entirely open to our own. It was a pleasure working with him and we highly recommend him. More...

If Shawn's awesome sample music on his website isn't enough to convince you that he's the real deal, go ahead and shop around a little bit, make a few phone calls, and then call Shawn. His responsiveness and professionalism far exceeded that of any of the vendors we spoke with, and was incredibly reassuring. From our very first phone call, we knew that the music for our wedding day was in good hands.

Leading into the wedding we had a few planning meetings with Shawn. He was very diligent in making sure he knew what we wanted, but also was experienced and confident enough to know when to just take the reigns and figure it out on his own.

On the day of the wedding, Shawn showed up early to get set up and acquainted with the venue, further enforcing the professional way in which he handles his business. (Service providers showing up early on a wedding day is a very good thing, especially when there are so many things to think about.) We had a champagne welcome hour in which Shawn played his violin while guests arrived and enjoyed their appetizers. We asked Shawn to do a somewhat odd arrangement for the bride to walk down the aisle and he absolutely nailed it, timing and all. Finally, at the reception, the dance floor was packed. I'm sure this was due, at least in part, to Shawn's ability to read the crowd and keep the party flowing.

We couldn't be happier with our decision to work with Shawn on our special day, and I'm sure you will be too!

Shawn Boucke was an amazing addition to our wedding. We only booked him as a violinist for oyr ceremony and we are glad we did. He surpassed our expectations. He was helpful in figuring out the type of songs we wanted based on the kind of music we liked. He also improvised without hesitation during the wedding and no one, even us, noticed. He was very easy to communicate with as well as give input or his expertise towards the ceremony music. He played at least an hour before the wedding when guest arrived. Played 5 different songs during the ceremony. Also played at least an hour after until all guest were shuttled back and until we finished most of our pictures. He was the most caring, friendly, down to earth guy and as well as being an amazing violinist. If you need one for your wedding, hands down i would choose him over anyone else. More...

I found Shawn at one of the bridal shows, and was so happy I did. He luckily still had our date open, and after my fiance saw some of his samples on line, we booked. It was great working with Shawn, and he put together some sample clips for us based on some songs we were interested, and we couldn't have been happier with how the music turned out. He is very professional, and our guests commented on how nice it was to have a violinist for the ceremony. He played for about 30 minutes before, and I asked him to do a mix of classical songs, as well as a few current songs - which our guests loved, and even the kids had fun guessing the songs. When I was in the bridal suite waiting to come out, and I heard the processional start, there was just something about it being on a violin that got me choked up and a little emotional. It was just really pretty. Thank you Shawn - I'm so glad we found you - you were the perfect addition to our ceremony! More...

We hired Shawn because he provided a service that gave our wedding something unique. Instead of having to hire a DJ for the reception and a violinist/string quartet for the ceremony, we hired Shawn as both, and the cost was comparable to a typical DJ. Also, I believe his skills would translate well to any wedding theme. We had an outdoor, rustic-themed wedding and every song he played during the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing was perfect. We even requested some pretty obscure songs that he, not only played for us, but accompanied with violin. I would recommend him to anyone. More...

Absolutely amazing! Shawn made our engagement so special! He was very professional and incredibly nice from the minute we called him. He was open to playing any songs that were requested. When we met with him, we gave him songs that he had never played before yet he perfected them so beautifully. We incorporated Arabic music into the event and he played the violin during the Arabic songs and it sounded amazing. Our guests all were impressed with his performance. The event was supposed to end at 9:30 but because we ran into a few complications, it started late and ended late but Shawn did not leave until all the guests were gone, which was very nice of him to do. Oh, and his smile really is contagious. I read that in a review about him when I was looking for a violinist and it's true! Needless to say, I am very happy and hope that Shawn will be available for our wedding! More...

Thank you so much for your amazing talent. I was really happy with the quality and performace from you. You're a very well rounded and talented man, Im so lucky that I had you at my wedding. The violin was excellent and I loved the music choices you picked for the cocktail hour. SO MANY of my friends and family absolutley LOVED the cocktail hour walking violin you did. Everyone was blown away. No expected it at all and it beyond amazing. I cannot write enough about how thrilled I was to have you there for Ceremony and Cocktail hour. My only wish was I was able to listen to you perform more outside, but Adam filled me in. :) I would recommend you to anyone who needs a solo violinist. I hope to use you in the future again at other family events. Thank you so much for being professional, honest and down to earth with me. It was exactly what I needed. You made me feel like your one and only client. Your videos you gave me where just way above and beyond what I expected, and it really helped me realize the songs I did and did not want on my wedding day. Again, YOU ARE AMAZING! OH HOLY SKIES! Please continue to do perform. You're talent is truly a gift and Im so blessed to have had you share it with my family on my wedding day. Thank you!

I work at Stars and Stripes Kids Activity Center and Shawn DJ'ed both our Daddy-Daughter and our Mother-Son dances. He did such a phenomenal job and we cannot wait until next year to see if he is available again! Not only did all the kids get a kick out the music he played and had so much fun, but the parents really enjoyed his selection of appropriate and lively music that everyone could dance to! However, what was so spectacular and different was that he didn't just stand behind his table the entire time playing songs. He got up to the front of the floor and lead line dances, broke out his electric violin and played it along with the music while he walked throughout he lobby, so those enjoying refreshments could still enjoy the music as well, and brought his microphone so we could make announcements to all of our guests! He was very professional and timely, and was extremely affordable! It was a pleasure doing business together and we would definitely recommend him! More...

He is so friendly with a contagious smile and we loved listening to him play (we could've hung out all day listening to him)! My daughter told Shawn all of her ideas and he was so enthusiastic! Her wedding was unique with everything being related to TV, movie, comics and video games. Even the ceremony songs were non traditional including Game of Thrones and Star Wars.He learned all of the songs she wanted and thought of some other great ideas! He then made a video of him playing all the songs so that she could preview them and even decide exact start and stop times for the ceremony songs. Shawn did such an amazing job and we would highly recommend him!!! More...

I hired Shawn as the violinist for my wedding ceremony and I couldn’t be happier with that decision! We hired him to play 25 minutes before the ceremony, during the ceremony, and 25 minutes after. He showed up over 2 hours early to set up and played the entire time. He’s incredibly talented! We picked a bunch of obscure, complicated, nerdy songs for him to play and he did all of them, plus threw in some of his own! I offered to pay extra for him to learn so many new songs and he turned me down. He was incredibly charming and felt more like a friend than someone you hired. He’s very professional and answered my obnoxious amount of emails very quickly. He’s really talented at both the acoustic violin and the electric violin. They both sound excellent! With the electric violin, he can loop it so it sounds like more than one person is playing. It’s really awesome. He met with me and sent sample youtube videos of the songs I wanted. He really did an incredible job and I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. More...

Shawn was wonderful from the moment I initially contacted him through our wedding! I contacted him online and received information from him right away (I think it might have even been the same night). Then, anytime I had a question he responded right away. Although we wanted more traditional music, he was very clear in that he would learn anything we wanted him to which was appreciated. The day of the wedding, he was there early and was ready to go so when I found that some of our guests were going to arrive a bit early due to shuttle times so that those guests walked into the venue to the same beautiful music. Also, on the day of he spoke with the officiant and venue to be sure he was all set and was great in that I didn't have to worry about anything. Everything he played sounded wonderful! He truly helped to create the elegant atmosphere we wanted for our wedding ceremony. I would highly recommend him. More...

I recently directed and coordinated a fundraising event in Oxford, Michigan where Shawn Boucke performed a set. He was absolutely amazing. I am amazed, yet not surprised by the feedback I have received from my guests about how beautifully he plays. I have worked with Shawn before, and plan to continue working with him in the future. Not only is he always prompt, and an extremely good communicator- but I always know that I can count on him to execute exactly what he says he will. As a music educator, I am proud to say that Shawn Boucke is a colleague of mine.

Working with Shawn couldn't have been better - he is an amazing, talented musician with a wide range of abilities, and was willing to work with us to help create exactly the feel we were looking for. We had him play during our ceremony - our wedding was Harry Potter inspired, so Shawn worked with us to play our favorite Harry Potter movie songs, as well as a few other geeky movie songs we love, such as Lord of the Rings. He sent us samples of him playing specific songs so we could preview what they would sound like with his arrangements. The whole time Shawn was professional, kept in touch with us throughout the planning process, and we truly felt he went above & beyond to give us what we wanted. We would highly recommend him, whatever style of music you are looking for! More...

Working with Shawn couldn't have been better - he is an amazing, talented musician with a wide range of abilities, and was willing to work with us to help create exactly the feel we were looking for. We had him play during our ceremony - our wedding was Harry Potter inspired, so Shawn worked with us to play our favorite Harry Potter movie songs, as well as a few other geeky movie songs we love, such as Lord of the Rings. He sent us samples of him playing specific songs so we could preview what they would sound like with his arrangements. The whole time Shawn was professional, kept in touch with us throughout the planning process, and we truly felt he went above & beyond to give us what we wanted. I would highly recommend him, whatever style of music you are looking for! More...

Shawn played the violin for us during our ceremony. One of my favorite songs is "Lovesong" by The Cure. He took the time to learn how to play it on the violin and it was epic. His professionalism and attention to detail added much value to an already fantastic wedding! More...

Shawn played at dinner during my reception. I absolutely loved everything he played. I requested over 10 songs. Shawn played all of them, plus more. Shawn even did an audio sample of the songs I requested one week after I booked him. I was very impressed with everything shawn did. He dressed very well, was professional, prices were very reasonable, and he played beautifully. I received many compliments on how the violin made the reception very elegant. More...

The music Shawn provided for us on our wedding day was nothing short of amazing. We met with Shawn before the wedding date to hear him play and pick our song selections. On the spot, Shawn played each song we asked flawlessly. It was as if he had been practicing them. We even made some unique song requests in which Shawn gladly prepared and played perfectly on our special day. He was so easy to work with and the passion he put into his music was a real blessing on our wedding day. He played every single song just as my wife and I imagined it would be played. Shawn continued to play during our cocktail hour which was a real treat for our guest. I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to have him play at our wedding. Words can't describe how completely satisfied we were with his serive. We would highly recommend him for any any occasion. More...

Nothing but a positive experience working with Shawn. Everything for my ceremony was set up via email which worked great with my busy schedule. Shawn responded to all emails in a very timely manner. He sent YouTube videos performing different genres of music as well as different types of violins (acoustic vs. electric) which was very helpful in finalizing what we wanted. The day of the wedding he arrived a little ahead of schedule which is always a good thing in my book. He was dressed professionally and did an absolutely wonderful job performing. I would definitely use him again and would refer him to anyone looking for a violinist in the area. More...

Shawn was AMAZING! Shawn performed at our apple orchard wedding ceremony a few weeks ago, and his beautiful violin music really helped make the day perfect! I was at total ease the day we met and I requested a song he was unfamiliar with, he pulled the song up and played it perfectly the first time.

I would recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a violinist to play at their wedding or special event. He is not only extremely talented, but he is also very professional.

Shawn was very professional. Worked with us on picking the right songs for our ceremony. Also worked with my wife to make sure the Star Wars Cantina Theme played as she walked down the aisle. Overall, his performance tied the ceremony together and made it enjoyable for us and our guests. More...

The category was actually a municipality; not a corporation. The corporation was the closest I could find.

It was an art fair event by local artists. The comment by most attendees was that the violinist set the stage. More...

Shawn and his string quartet were very professional. They came prepared with the music, dressed classy, were punctual, and pleasant to work with. We were very pleased with their performance and they truly made our gala fundraiser a night to remember! We have already booked them for our upcoming gala as well! Would highly recommend. Shawn also does fantastic arrangements should you need music arranged. More...
