I'm happy to provide a letter of reference for "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting", the company of Ben MacKenzie. His attention to detail and professionalism was surprisingly unexpected from a young entrepreneur but very much appreciated and contributed to the success of our open house/client appreciation event. I can confidently recommend "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting" as the right company for any of your sound and/or lighting needs, big or small.

We hired "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting" for our wedding. They were extremely professional and hard working. We were pleased with everything they offered and did for us, especially their music selection, playing all the songs from our list while adding in other song choices that kept our guests on the dance floor all night long. We definitely recommend them to everyone!

SCLC Events

Charity Event

A big thank you to "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting" for being so amazingly easy to work with. While planning the Catwalk for Charity event I was on a search for small and local businesses and I came across "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting" via kijiji. I was very impressed with a speedy response through email and a meeting setup. "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting" listened to the ideas I had and more than willingly wrote down a plan to get the results I wanted. The event was a huge success and part of that success was due to the stunning purple themed lights, DJing for the fashion show portion and the amazing MCing. Thank you so much to the "Shake It Up Sound & Lighting" Team. I look forward to working with you again on future events and highly recommend you.
