My husband and I went with Beat Train for our wedding after some pretty exhaustive research. Because we decided against using live music, what we really needed was a friendly, intuitive DJ who could read our lower-key crowd and shape the music to make our event the best it could be, no corny announcements needed. And from the very beginning, Shane was perfect. Before the event, he was great at offering suggestions for special moment songs, and about things I hadn’t even thought of (such as “do you want the whole first dance song played because sometimes they can get a bit long and the bride and groom end up feeling awkward”). He was also very reassuring about my ceremony music playlist – I felt my requests were a bit unusual but he was totally cool with everything. Then, during the wedding he was great at paying attention to the room and what was happening (ie the flowergirl being a little hesitant about walking) and being flexible accordingly. I had been so anxious about everything going smoothly (what bride isn’t?) but with Shane, I didn’t need to worry at all. Every single thing, from pronouncing names, to matching the crowd vibe, to introducing all the special moments, was perfect. And the music itself was basically our dream playlist – I kept meaning to get off the dance floor for a couple minutes, but every song was so good I couldn’t leave. Every one of our guests loved him, and had such a wonderful time. And the best part was that he’s just such a nice, chill guy – he felt like one of our guests, and whatever he was feeling that day he came off like he was just genuinely happy to be there and having fun with us. It really made the whole night.
I’ve since attended a few weddings after ours, and they really made me appreciate just how good Shane was. He is now my gold standard for a wedding emcee and DJ, because he’s not just someone with a playlist, he’s someone with the skill set and personality to make sure everyone in the room feels great at all times. I would hire him for any event, at any time. He’s worth whatever price you pay.
P.S. He’s also great with kids, and you should ask him for photos of his adorable twins!
If you’re thinking about booking Beat Train Productions for your wedding, STOP THINKING and just do it! From the initial call to our wedding day, every want, wish, and need was catered to. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and also very warm. In our initial phone call, we were given a couple of recommendations for DJ’s. After reviewing the profiles of each recommended DJ, we went with Shane Page. Shane was EXCEPTIONAL. Seriously, we CANNOT recommend him enough. People were talking about the music at our wedding for months after the occasion! Sean was able to capture our vibe perfectly. Also, when our order of events changed the day of, due to weather complications, Shane was able to seamlessly adjust and work around the new schedule without any prior preparation and very little consultation. I ate very little at my wedding because every time I went to sit down, another one of “my songs” came on and I had to dance! People danced so hard at my wedding that they were sore for days after the event. Shane is a phenomenal DJ. My husband and I would hire definitely hire him again and again for future events. Seriously, words cannot describe how amazing he is. It was the best party I’ve ever been to, and it was my wedding. The packages are flexible and affordable! You will dance until your feet hurt and you will NOT regret your decision. Hire Shane for weddings, birthday parties, work events, etc. and your party will be unforgettable!
This is long overdue, but we highly recommend Shane with Beat Train Productions for anyone looking for a DJ, wedding or otherwise.
Shane was such a pleasure to work with, and clearly has a keen knowledge and appreciation for a wide variety of genres. He’s a super nice guy and easy to communicate with, and was miraculously able to blend two (very) dissimilar musical tastes at our wedding reception in Beacon, NY.
Shane listened to our feedback and requests in our kickoff meeting in NYC, and put a lot of thought into reading the crowd and seamlessly transitioning from one song to the next, and there was never a moment’s lull on the dance floor. He even managed to perfectly time the start of “Born in the USA” to coincide with the surprise presentation of a trucker hat/mullet wig combo from our friends to my extremely British husband on the dance floor that was one of the more, um, memorable moments of the evening.
We received so many compliments about Shane from our eclectic group of guests from the US and UK, including from a friend who is a DJ himself. It’s a hard feat to please everyone, but Shane pulled it off handily and was a huge part of making our wedding so special.
Seriously, book Shane (and Beat Train Productions, who were very easy to work with and offered extremely reasonable pricing for such an amazing service). You won’t regret it, and will thank yourself for handing over the reins.
We chose Beat Train on the basis of their reputation for no-nonsense DJing — no dumb party games, just great music. We hired Shane Page for six hours, and could not be happier with our choice. He reached out to us a few months before our wedding to chat over Skype, and the conversation definitely put us at ease about being on the same page in terms of our needs & musical tastes. Shane is charming and enjoyable to be around — which is an important quality in someone who is going to be a consistent presence throughout your wedding day! He executed every part of the evening according to our wishes and earned us compliments from some of the biggest music snobs among our guests. Last but not least, he delivered an absolutely adorable moment (captured on insta by out wedding coordinator) by patiently explaining his DJing software to our 10-year-old nephew who loves music! Shane is a fantastic DJ and all-around great guy.
We worked with DJ Shane Page for our wedding on 5/19/18, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. From our first phone consultation with him, we knew he would be a perfect fit for our big day. We have an eclectic taste of music and we needed someone who could cover a mix of genres and keep the energy high, and he delivered above and beyond our expectations!
Throughout the night we heard everything – jazz standards, Motown classics, hip hop, classic rock, R&B, and more. He set the mood for our cocktail hour, played easy jams during dinner, and kicked it into high gear once the dance floor opened. He kept our crowd dancing, smiling, and shaking their butts for four straight hours! There wasn’t a moment that the dance floor was empty. We laughed together, cried tears of joy, and had an unforgettable evening.
We wish the night could have gone on forever. Thank you so much Shane for helping to make our wedding special, unique, and SO MUCH FUN!!!
Special thanks to the booking team at Beat Train Productions for their recommendations and super easy booking process!!
We decided to use Beat Train Productions for our July wedding in NYC and had the pleasure of working with DJ Shane Page. I honestly do not have enough great things to say about working with this company and Shane in particular. From our ceremony through the reception, the music for our whole day was on point! Shane had all of our guests out on the dance floor and really kept the part going. People were coming up to us throughout the night commenting about how fantastic the music was! Even some of our older guests found themselves flocking to the dance floor!! The playlist was perfect and we could not have been happier with how things played out. For anyone who wants to have a super fun, memorable wedding, I would highly recommend hiring Beat Train and working with Shane Page!!
DJ Shane is the best. We looked for a DJ for so long and as soon as we heard his website we knew he was it. He was extremely professional and furthermore he went above and beyond by coming earlier to our event and stepping in as an MC when we didn’t have one. He then proceeded to get everyone dancing in the room – those who love to dance and those who don’t. Everyone said they had the best time at our wedding and we knew we had DJ Shane to thank. I am very appreciative of DJ Shane and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.
We had the pleasure of working with Beat Train Productions and DJ Shane Page for our wedding in upstate NY. From the very first phone call, we knew we were in good hands. The folks at Beat Train were knowledgable and super accommodating. We were in contact with Shane months before our wedding and always received a prompt response when we had any questions. The service on the day of our wedding exceeded our expectations. Shane was punctual and quick to set up. He followed the event outline we had discussed, played all the music we wanted and had the crowd on the dance floor the entire time! His MC style was confident and he read the crowd well, which was something we really wanted. We received so many compliments about how amazing the mix was. Thank You Shane and BTP for making our day special!
Beat Train and DJ Shane were amazing! Super responsive but also felt like we could trust their expertise to make sure our wedding was a blast. Shane had everyone, including my 90-year old aunt with a cane, dancing the whole night! His pre-wedding planning sheet was super helpful in articulating what we were looking for. Highly recommend Shane and Beat Train!
I found Beat Train simply through a Google search. If you’re into cheesy DJs who talk over the music and try to “pump” everyone up, this is not for you. If you want professionalism, class, accommodating and overall superb service look no further. Go through Beat Train. We had DJ Shane Page and not only did our wedding coordinator at the venue say he was the earliest DJ to arrive and prep, she said he was the best dressed DJ she ever had there. With that said, Shane performed all the songs exactly how we wanted and when we wanted. He even gave insight as to what would work and what wouldn’t work as per our requests. That’s what you want in a DJ. No cheap cheesy commentating during the setlist, just strictly about making everyone there have a good time and bringing nothing but class to your wedding day. Couldn’t ask for a better night. Thanks Beat Train and thanks Shane.
My fiance and I have very different tastes in music. We had a multicultural wedding, with my fiances side being from Jamaica, and my side being from the north east. We both wanted a night when everyone was out on the dance floor having a good time. Shane did an amazing job with such a hard task! He was able to marry both our styles perfectly. The night was beyond our expectations and we really could not thank Shane enough for his hard work and professionalism!
Shane was amazing to work with! He was so great emailing in advance to get our requests. On the night of our wedding we were blown away how he was able to keep ALL of our guests on the dance floor. We had a very wide range of request from the Traveling Wilburys to Crystal Waters and he made it all fit. We had the best time. We 100% recommend Shane!
We were so happy to have found Beat Train and Shane Page for our wedding! From the first consultation to all of the planning and day of arrangements, Shane and the whole Beat Train team communicated everything so well and were super accommodating! Shane was also so fun to have around on our wedding day, checking in to make sure everything was going well for us and even letting all of our friends request Beyonce 🙂 We are so happy we chose them!
We can’t say enough good things about Shane’s performance as our wedding DJ. He was with us every step of the way, happily willing to walk us through, and often co-plan, every detail of the evening. The set he devised for our night was absolutely stellar, he made our celebration a seamless performance and an EPIC party! All in all, we are so thankful for the incredible job that he did, and would recommend him to anyone without reservation.
This past weekend Shane played at our wedding in Staten Island. He was incredible. The dance floor was bumping from the very beginning all the way to the end. The guests were chanting encore when the wedding ended, begging him to play more tracks. Thank you Shane and thank you Beat Train for such an awesome performance. We could not recommend Shane and Beat Train more highly.
Shane was amazing! We had such a blast and everyone at our wedding keeps going on about it being the MOST FUN wedding of all times, the music was spot on and everyone were dancing the night away!
It was such a pleasure to work with Shane and the Beat Train team! They were so professional, flexible and organized the whole way through the planning process. Shane was personable and his music choices were perfect throughout the event! I would highly recommend the Beat Train team for anyone planning a wedding!
My husband and I worked with Shane Page at Beat Train Productions to DJ our October 2018 wedding and he did an amazing job! We would give him 100 stars if we could. He took the time to meet with my husband and I during the planning process and gave us his tips and recommendations which went a long way. On the big day he followed the day of schedule with precision and kept the party going all through the night. We recommend Shane to all newly engaged couples 🙂
