“Music adds an element of atmosphere and can make any ceremony, cocktail hour and reception for the most important date of your life even more special. Hire Shawn solo to play instrumentals down the walkway to your future husband/wife to your fav tunes or solo to create a laid back atmosphere for cocktail hour. Why go with a DJ to hit play on a playlist when you can have the irreplaceable LIVE energy a LIVE Band brings with personal take on your favourite hand picked songs from our set list and requests songs YOU WANT with the live feel and charisma from live artists. Every wedding we play can vouch the difference in live music versus the DJ can uplift the evening to a heightened experience you won’t forget.”
“When it came to planning our wedding, we only had a couple of ‘must haves’. We absolutely needed great food, an open bar and live music. One of our groomsmen knew we were trying to find the perfect sound for our party and gave us Shawn’s information. He told us he had seen Shawn perform with his band more than once in various venues and said he always got the crowd moving. After checking out some videos of Shawn online, we decided to reach out to him and meet. We met him and instantly vibed with him; he was personable and really got to know what we were hoping to hear on our big day. Shawn seemed to get a feel for our musical tastes and our personalities seamlessly. We had such a hard time picking tracks from Shawn’s extensive library of hits but really appreciated having such a vast selection. We also couldn’t believe he was willing to not only learn new songs for us, but he also created a medley of our two favorite songs for our first dance. To this day, our guests still bring up how much they enjoyed the music during our reception. Our guests spent lots of time on the dance floor, even those who swore they wouldn’t or couldn’t dance! We highly recommend Shawn for any event and appreciate everything he did to make our wedding day very memorable.”
The Shawn Steinhart band made my reception the party I hoped it would be. Aside from being fantastic well-rounded musicians, they are fantastic guys. Professional, courteous and accommodating in every way. Great set list coupled with a sincere and charismatic performance is how I would describe my experience with these guys. Thanks again Shawn. 2 years later my guests are still talking about you
Shawn is one of my best friends and has been for years. He’s warm, friendly and driven. I think this is why so many people want him at their weddings. He’s professional yet it feels like he is one of the guests. He played at my husband and mine wedding and KILLED IT! He was charming and clam! I would book him before he is SOLD OUT!!
Shawn performed at our wedding in the blistering heat for almost four hours by himself. Our wedding day was more than we ever could have asked for and Shawn did a tremendous job getting everyone out on the dance floor; without him it could not have been as successful as it was. He made our wedding day special by truely bringing everyone together for a great time. We cannot thank him enough for his services. If we could go back and do it all over again we would have Shawn do it time and time again; really a spectacular person
“Whenever we run into people and talk about our wedding day, we always hear “…and the band ROCKED!”
That uncle who never dances? He was on the dance floor all night!
These guys played great, and had fun with the crowd. So glad they were a partner our day!”
“Shawn was an amazing addition to our wedding! We have had numerous compliments from our guests that say they enjoyed it! Not only did he entertain our guests between ceremony and reception but he also played our song as I walked down the aisle. It was truly amazing! before the wedding Shawn started playing he started off the party and our celebration and we wouldn’t have had it any other way!”
“We approached Shawn to play us down the aisle and provide entertainment at our wedding, and he exceeded our request by not only providing entertainment but by becoming party of the celebration. He executed our wedding song flawlessly, and brought life to the party – we were blown away by his professionalism. We would recommend Shawn to anyone looking for entertainment for their wedding, birthday, retirement, ANYTHING! We’re definitely going to be hiring him for future events.”
“So last winter my wife and I were looking for a live musical act for our barn wedding in July. We had gone to several biermarkt shows to find the right sound, charisma, and an act that could really hold the room. Nothing we saw we liked. It was not until the both of us were up at Blue Mountain skiing, we were rocking out at Rusty’s for aprés ski, drinking beer. The place was packed and the music was really good. Shawn is sitting solo, up front jamming out some classic tunes and holding down the vocals like a champ. Some of the best musicians you will ever find will be playing music at aprés ski, wherever you go in the world. My wife and I both nod our heads agreeing we have found our man. I drop him my contacts and tell him I want to book him for our Muskoka wedding. Fast forward 6 months we find out he actually has a band, or two…they show up to our barn, have a couple bevies, mingle with the guests, and then head downstairs for dinner. His call time was delayed as dinner ran a little longer, so he got up and jammed some solo acoustic for 20 mins. Peoples jaws dropped. Once dinner wrapped the band came on and rocked the barn so hard, everyone was dancing. The most common question people kept asking me was “Where did you find these guys? They are incredible!” So incredible they blew the power to all of Huntsville at 11pm… as I like to put it. The power did actually go out, but the best part was Shawn ran to his van and got all of his acoustic instruments and played another hour by candlelight with the band. It couldn’t have been written any better. At the end, he shushed everyone called my wife and I front and center and played our first dance song, Budapest by George Ezra, in the most beautiful way to wrap up the night. I was in awe. If you are looking for a super personable, super talented musician for your wedding or any event, look no further. Shawn is a master musician, vocalist, and all around great guy. He will deliver a performance you will remember. I can’t wait to see him next time he plays in Toronto!”
