Hey, what's happening? I'm Don (aka "Shav"). I've always been an entertainer. Whether it's making people laugh or roll their eyes at a corny joke, or spinnin' the best mix of tracks, I get pumped when I see folks having a good time. I started in 1986 with two turntables, some tinny sounding speakers and a microphone at my buddy's 16th birthday party. Thirty plus years & a lot of cool technology later, I'm still packin' the dance floor with party people who raise the roof night after night! With a solid knowledge of music genres from Big Band to Country to Hip Hop and everything in between, I can promise your special event will be that much more memorable with Shav in the house!!

My Story

With years of experience under my belt, you won't find a more qualified, dignified or electrified person to throw down the music for your special event. My rates are reasonable, the speakers are hot, and I'm ready to help make YOUR Special Day even better!!

"We hired Shavano Soundz for our wedding in Salida, CO in July 2022. Don and Jay were awesome!! The planning process was easy, Don was super friendly and easy to communicate with, and the DJ services at the wedding itself were incredible. We loved the fact that Don has both a battery powered setup as well as his full lights & corded setup, which made it easy to transition from the ceremony site (outdoors, and away from outlets) to cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing! Our guests stayed on the dance floor all night, and Don & Jay did an awesome job taking from our preferred song list and also mixing in some crowd-pleasers to keep the party going. HUGE thank you and HIGHLY recommend"!

"I have known Don for many years and it was extra special to have him provide the music for our wedding, he was able to get all the music I requested from dancing to enjoying nice songs for dinner. I would recommend him for any occasion!  The attendance for my wedding was small and he came out and showed is fun line dances and played music that would engage everyone.  His pricing is great, and he set up and took down in a timely manner.  Thank you Shavano Soundz!"
