Britany N. - Thomas, of Traks DJ Service, was an absolute dream to work with! He was both flexible and responsive during the planning process. When my schedule was completely chaotic he managed to work with me, He set my anxious "bride brain" at ease and provided me so much comic relief in moments of stress. He completely customized the music experience at my wedding. Every song was perfectly catered to my husband and I and seamlessly blended together. Many guests at our wedding made comments about the originality of our music at our ceremony, but EVERYONE made comments about the party that ensued at the reception! Thomas reads the crowd perfectly, he gets the dance floor packed and the energy never dropped. He made the garter toss and bouquet toss a really fun comedy event. Thomas is SO fun, has an acute understanding of unique yet fitting wedding songs, and is SO far from the overly enthusiastic and obnoxious DJ every bride is terrified of. All my other vendors were very excited to hear Traks was my DJ because he is such a joy to work with and honestly the best at creating a true celebration/dance party at a wedding. I couldn't be happier with Traks and am so grateful he was there to create the perfect atmosphere at our wedding.
Garth F. - Thomas is a great guy with enough experience in the DJ business to offer critical insight to how to maintain a fun, vibrant atmosphere. His service was vital to capping off our beautiful day. So many of our guests commented on how he rocked the reception. He kept it fun and exciting. One of my favorite quotes Thomas said during our initial visit was "I can keep people on the dance floor without the 'Chicken Dance'". I hate the Chicken Dance, so naturally that caught my attention. He can gauge the mood of the event and adjust his music selection accordingly. He fades songs out slowly while playing the new song making a smooth transition without the awkward silence between songs. I was a little worried that the dance floor would be neglected as our family/friends are really not the dancing type, however he had it hopping at all times...not even using the 'Chicken Dance' to goad people to the floor.
Thomas meets with you several times prior to the event to go over the entertainment strategy. At one meeting, we were supposed to end at 6:30, however it went to almost 7pm. He had booked another meeting around 6:30 with another client without our knowing. We never felt pressured to end the meeting on time and he didn't tell us he had another client in the coffee shop. We didn't know about this other client until we were leaving and he got up to meet his next client.
Bottom line is Thomas is TOP NOTCH. My wife and I agree that Thomas' ability to electrify the event as a DJ and keep the vibe going as an MC are unparalleled. Thomas, your services are unbelievable and you should probably raise your rate!!
Thank you Thomas for making our wedding so memorable. You have no idea how many people told us that this was the best wedding they have attended, and you certainly assisted in that assessment. Your a great guy and I would be happy be a reference for you.
David M. - Our experience with Traks DJ Service (and Thomas Shaw, owner and operator) at our wedding reception was an absolutely fantastic experience. Thomas is a true professional and master of his craft. We were pleased that Thomas was willing to meet with us multiple times prior to our wedding (once early in the planning process to provide a rough overview and once the week prior to the wedding in order to finalize the event plan). Traks DJ Service was with us every step of the way. Thomas was so flexible, he even let us submit my wife's father-daughter dance song a mere two days prior to the reception.
We received countless compliments from our guests on our use of Traks DJ Service. Everyone was impressed with every facet of the DJ Service (i.e., the music played, the coordination of the event, MC services, and the dance floor energy created). Thomas promised us he would have the dance floor full from the opening of the dance floor to the closing of the dance floor, and he certainly delivered! We have only the best to say about Traks DJ Service and would recommend Thomas Shaw and Traks DJ Service to our friends or anyone else planning an event requiring the services of a DJ.
Rachel T. - Thomas was amazing! Extremely professional and organized! Our wedding was at 4:00pm in August, which meant that it was still quite bright outside when it was time to start dancing. I was pretty concerned that the light factor would be a mood killer, but not so. Thomas worked with it beautifully and chose an excellent selection of music and interactive interludes. All of our guests were commenting on how fantastic his music was; even our wedding planner commented on his superb abilities. Thank you so much! We loved our reception, and so did everyone else!
Justin and Tanya - Thomas was so great!! He read the crowd so easily and made modifications on the fly, even when the groom got hurt. He kept the crowd dancing and was so much fun and upbeat. All of our guests thought that he was fantastic and we continue to hear how much fun everybody had at the reception. Not only that, but his prices were much more competitive than we thought. We managed to have great music, a fun DJ, and some speciality lighting for less than the competition. I will be recommending Traks DJ Service to everybody!!
Fred and Kayti - Thomas with Traks DJ was the perfect choice for our wedding. We hosted our August wedding at Cave B winery in Quincy, WA and he did an outstanding job. The venue was a high end location and his set up fit right in. He went above and beyond to make our event perfect! I changed the music the night before the wedding and he rolled with the punches! :-) Then our flower girls were a little slow getting down the aisle and he made the music flow and no one even knew that he was covering. Then he started my wedding march, right where I had wanted it and everything went perfectly!! He has great knowledge about music and helped us out on picking songs for different parts of the wedding that we were clueless about. Traks DJ Service was the perfect fit for our wedding and I know that if you choose him for your event, you will not be disappointed. Thanks so much Traks!!!
