Shawn has some impressive talent on the violin. Not just that, but he was easy to work with, was on-time for the event, and didn't leave right away if guests were still near the ceremony location (where he was setup to play).
I was impressed with all the songs he knew, traditional and new. He even played Thunderstruck at the request of my bridesmaid for fun when we were taking pictures after the ceremony.
I highly recommend Shawn if you are looking for the best violinist for your wedding. I'm thankful he was willing to perform at mine.

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...

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 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...

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 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.

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...
