About

SBDJ Services is a wedding entertainment specialist based out of Manchester, Greater Manchester.

I'm Shaun, known locally as 'the sax guy.' I'm a proud dog dad to Bruce, real dad to Ted, fiancé and self employed musician from Stockport - a self proclaimed music lover and occasional canapé thief!

I'm a saxophonist and I've spent years in the music and wedding industries in many roles: sound & lighting tech, host, DJ, and even an occasional venue dresser - despite the qualifications, I still feel as though I'm beating life by doing a job that involves celebrating the best day of customers lives!

Building a trusting relationship with all of my clients is so important. It's the basis to success, the key to building both an entertainment package and an atmosphere that suits you. My packages are designed to be tailored, they’re flexible allowing you to personalise your own entertainment.

Guidance and support comes as standard throughout the booking process, whether that's advice on how long it takes to walk down the aisle, or what type of entertainment to book during your wedding breakfast. Boring entertainment isn't for me. I never save or 'program' set-lists, the soundtrack to your wedding or event is totally unique, and will never be repeated.

My extensive catalogue of music is always developing, along with a desire to improve with each and every event - which is probably why l've have been recognised and awarded accordingly.

My cutting edge software allows me to stream the most up-to-date tracks which we can throw directly into the mix, and my professional network extends to hundreds of wedding and corporate venues and suppliers across the UK. With this in-depth knowledge, I can help meticulously plan your day to ensure it runs without a hitch. I'm also one of the few people around who can play the saxophone and DJ at the same time, whether that's a classic nineties party set or some more modern Ibiza tunes, I'm happy to join you and your guests on the dancefloor to bring the party to life.

With regards to the wedding package, there’s also some add-ons which you can bolt onto your booking including photobooths, other live musical performances and even some decorative pieces! Some things however are included for FREE, such as a 4K Wedding Highlights Video and a stunning Neon Sign. If you're at all interested in any of my services - don't hesitate to get in touch!

Perfection!

We absolutely loved working with Shaun to create our perfect evening of music for our wedding. Shaun is very flexible with how he works and is happy to take as much direction from you as needed, we provided a few songs choices we really wanted to hear (and a few songs we definitely didn't!) and we let Shaun do his thing!

Shaun was always very responsive on email, and great to chat to in person about your musical choices and likes and dislikes. He has such a friendly and calm demeanour, which instantly puts you at ease during the stress of wedding planning!

As someone who is very passionate about their music, it was such a comfort knowing I was leaving the music for the evening in such capable hands - we had the perfect mix of music to keep guests of all ages happy. I would 100% recommend working with Shaun!

Fab DJ & sax

After speaking to Shaun for 5 minutes before booking I knew he was gonna be fab but I wasn't quite prepared for what he delivered. He managed to keep the groom on the dance floor for 6 hours, happily took on any requests from our guests and played so many bangers that I ended up in minor injuries from dancing too vigorously in my heels.
The sax was just another added bonus which everybody loved.
A pleasure to work with, all around great guy, top DJ and musician.
10/10 would recommend to absolutely everyone.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone looking for someone to take care of all of thier wedding music

Shaun looked after all the music for our wedding at the Granary on the Common in East Yorkshire earlier this month. We had left it quite late to look for a DJ, and were worried about sorting the music as the venue was completely DIY and had outdoor space, two barns and an upstairs are for the ceremony. We found Shaun on Hitched and thought it his full day package would suit us perfectly. We really have an eclectic taste in music and it was really important to us and having seamless music throughout the day that we didn't have to worry about. Shaun made it easy and we even got to send him playlists of all our favourite songs and the music for certain parts of the day, such as walking down the aisle and signing the register. He was adaptive to playing inside or outside, but because of the weather we had to have most of it inside. We had a few video chats with Shaun before the wedding to get everything organised which was super helpful.
Shaun's DJ set up was super smart with the neon sign and not at all cheesy (the last thing we wanted was a DJ Dave). His sax playing stills were also incredible.
The icing on the cake was the amazing album of photos he sent to us after the wedding - which were superb!
We also hired the retro photobooth and Shaun's dad manned it for the night and gave us a lovely guestbook of pictures at the end.
Our cousin has already booked him for her 2025 wedding down in Norfolk.
Overall we would highly recommend SBDJ services.

Brilliant!

Absolutely fantastic entertainment and kept us calm through the day! Just what we needed to make our big day a success. Shaun was able to mix up the music to make sure there was something for everyone. And that sax! Whoo! Epic.

WOW! We were blown away!

Wow, wow, wow! What an amazing company. We booked Shaun to play saxophone at our wedding toast drinks and Ibiza sax at our evening reception. He was incredible and really got the good high energy vibes going. Shaun was also the dj for our music in the evening and we paid for the use of the photo booth too. We got unlimited pictures and they printed 2 copies of each photo, one for the guests to keep and one for our guest book. I couldn’t recommend him and his company enough.

He was easily contactable leading up to the big day and kept us informed throughout. He created our first dance mix tape and played some personal extra touches that we wanted. Nothing was too much to ask. 2 weeks later, we and our guests are still buzzing off the entertainment provided. We will be recommending you to everyone! Once again, thanks so much!

Absolutely incredible from start to finish.

Shaun was incredible from our very first message till even now arranging to send me the photobooth photos. I cannot fault him. His responsiveness was impeccable to every query and suggestion. He made himself available to suit us. He answered every query made the whole experience so easy and calm. Everyone commented on how amazing the DJ and photobooth were at the wedding such a brilliant package! We cannot thank Shaun and his team enough!
