What are past clients saying?
If you need convincing as to what DJ Shel can bring to your wedding, read what some of his previous clients have been saying:
“My husband and I had a joint birthday tea dance last week at the Grimsdyke Hotel. Sheldon provided fabulous jazz and soft music on guitar and keyboard during the tea. After this he became our DJ and had everybody up and dancing for 2 hours! I have had so many wonderful comments from my friends and family all citing the great job Sheldon did.
I would not hesitate to have Sheldon supply the music for any parties or functions we have in the future.”
Norman and Amber – Birthday party – November 2017
“My eyes and ears genuinely lit up the day I found Sheldon, he had the most professional website, he was passionate and tech savvy enough to have video blogs. For a future bride to bride I loved watching them and picturing my own big day. It wasn’t just that though because the first time I emailed Sheldon, I had an instant and helpful response and within a day, we were speaking on the phone. He knew exactly what to say and even explained that rather than paying for a DJ, he could do it all in one. This made perfect sense to me, as my experience juggling suppliers for events, I was desperate to hire one pro to take over one element of the wedding. And choosing Sheldon to organise the audio was the best decision I could have made.
What would I rate Sheldon out of ten? I couldn’t he was too fantastic!! All I wish is I could do it all again and I would hire him all over again”
Cat and Tim – Wedding – August 2017
We chose DJ Shel for our wedding party after an exhaustive search on Google. We were looking for someone to create a really intimate party atmosphere with a wide range of music to cater for all age groups and had been encouraged by his website and Instagram posts. Following a couple of ‘get to know you’ phone calls, we decided that he was the DJ for us, so we went ahead and hired him. This turned out to be an excellent decision.
DJ Shel hit the nail on the head. He played all our requested music and we were delighted with the overall feel of the night. The party was very successful and we had a lot of compliments from our guests for how fabulous the whole wedding was including the party.
We would be very happy to recommend DJ Shel to anyone.
Andy and Katie – Wedding – August 2017
“Sheldon performed 3 45 minute sets at our wedding, our first dance and then was our DJ for the rest of the evening. From our first conversation, Sheldon was fantastic. He even learnt a song from a YouTube video for our first dance and it was perfect! All our guests have commented how good he was. The choice of songs was perfect and he had everyone dancing until the end of the night. Highly recommend!”
Thank you again for everything. You helped make our day perfect and so special!
Larna and Jamie – Wedding – July 2017
“Our wedding was an intimate occasion in a small hotel in Henley on Thames. Sheldon was an integral part of this, playing and singing live for our reception drinks and later DJ for our party. His live act was outstanding- creating a convivial atmosphere for our reception and complimented by many of our guests. We appreciated Sheldon’s versatility and helpfulness – filling in gaps when needed with great background music for our civil ceremony and over dinner, changing plans due to bad weather and the time he took to understand what we were looking for before the day. We think Sheldon was a real ‘find’ and would recommend him to anyone! ”
Sonal and Jeff – Wedding – Henley on Thames – July 2017
Sheldon performed at Laura’s and my wedding, in the south of France in May 2017. He played guitar, sang vocals and DJ-ed, for the duration of the festivities.The whole day was an incredible success, and Sheldon was an integral part of that. In addition to his musical and DJing abilities, he is extremely communicative, helpful and adaptable. His experience and calm demeanour helped things run more smoothly.
Throughout the whole process, pre-, during and post-wedding, he was really easy to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending using Sheldon, if you need a DJ and/or musician.
David and Laura – Wedding – South of France, May 2017
With a small venue we couldn’t have a large set up with a full band and we were worried we wouldn’t get maximum impact, but this wasn’t a problem with Sheldon and he far exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Communication from the first enquiry, right down to the day after our wedding was professional and friendly. He understood what we were wanting for our day and we had a full dance floor all night! The early part of the reception was classy with the acoustic guitar and saxophone and later in the night Sheldon delivered song after song as our DJ. But by far, the best part was that Sheldon had taken the time to learn our first dance song and perform it. It isn’t often that the bride and groom are surprised on their own wedding day by someone else! Sheldon was definitely a key part in making our day so special and would recommend him to anyone looking for live music for their event or wedding.
Laura and Nick – Wedding – February 2017
We’re so glad we had Sheldon DJ at our wedding. He played every single one of our favourite tunes and threw in his own ones which blended perfectly with what we wanted. His mixing was seamless and he kept people of all ages on the dance floor from the 1st track to the last. He is a great guy and very easy to work with. If you want a wicked DJ for your party, then Sheldon is your man!
Adam and Susie – Wedding – December 2016
Hi Sheldon. You were fantastic to deal with; so professional and reliable. You were always calm and took on board all our requests and needs from start to finish. Thank you so much. We would happily recommend you to play at our friend’s functions in the future.
Alison and Rob – Bar Mitzvah – December 2016
We had a great evening with Sheldon providing live music especially selected for our party guests. His friendly attitude and energy helped the evening go really well, everyone had a great night.
Ian and Liz’s 50th Birthday Party – June 2016
Thank you once again for a terrific night’s entertainment. You made our staff Christmas party special, for the second year running. Providing background entertainment during the meal and afterwards enticing everyone on to the dance floor, getting the mood just right!
