Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ


When I thought about what I wanted my reputation as a Wedding MC & DJ to be, I knew "He plays really good music!" simply wasn't enough. I wanted to infuse guest interaction with stellar DJ mixing skills. I wanted to utilize the latest technology in sound, lighting, and visual to create a unique presentation experience. I wanted to combine the roles of Host, Director, and Master of Ceremonies into one and be more than a "Wedding DJ that makes announcements". But most of all, I wanted to develop a planning process that would make me the easiest wedding vendor that couples would work with.

What I wanted was "Wedding Entertainment Excellence". What I created was "Really Cool Weddings for Really Cool People".

Simply put, I would be honored to get to know you and help you create the best wedding reception your family and friends have ever experienced. I look forward to working with you!

Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ is a Seattle Wedding DJ who performs at the finest weddings in Washington State.

A Scene from Mischa & Katie’s Reception

“Okay, I’ll begin by saying, “Hire Tony! You won’t regret it.” Tony’s model is unlike any other DJ I came across: he is with you throughout the planning process and helps create a detailed outline for your wedding day, meticulously designed to your tastes to ensure that your wedding day runs smoothly all night and properly reflects you as a couple. I genuinely appreciated all the thought and detail that went into our planning sessions with Tony, and I was absolutely overjoyed on the day of our wedding with how fantastic Tony was! He’s got a great personality that will mesh well with you, your wedding party, and your family/friends. He offers MC services to keep everything on schedule, and as a DJ, is second to none! OUR DANCE FLOOR WAS PACKED ALL NIGHT with excellent song after excellent song! I have been to tons of weddings, and I’ve never experienced a music mix and dance floor quite like the one at my wedding – and it is all owed to Tony. Each and every request we had was met, and exceeded every expectation I could have had. He has the uncanny ability to determine which songs are best for which moment, and does all the music mixing live: this is no pre-recorded music list!! Tony is the best there is: do yourself a favor and make your wedding reception one for the record books by hiring Tony Schwartz!”

In the weeks leading up the reception, I

Influenced by national DJ talents at a young age, Tony quickly developed the basics of his craft on late night college radio at the University of Puget Sound. Within two years, he was performing at nightlife clubs and private events throughout the Greater Puget Sound area.

With a multi-faceted background, Tony has built a solid reputation as a reliable open-format party rocker with creative programming and solid DJ fundamentals. From funk to pop, hip-hop to classic rock, all of your current favorites to classic party hits are in a highly-energetic dance floor mix!

Career Highlight: DJing for 25,000 people as the opening act for country music legend, Tim McGraw, at Watershed Festival 2014.

Best Part About Weddings: “The hug from my bride and the high-five from my groom at the end of the night! It tells me everything; the day was exactly what they wanted it to be, and then some. Because when it comes down to it, by the time their wedding day arrives, my couples are no longer clients – they’re friends.”

DJ Tony~

We are so incredibly happy we were lucky enough to find you for our wedding! You were a dream to work with. We received so many compliments at how "alive" you kept our wedding - and though our guest count had an alarming drop the day of, you kept those who were able to attend happy and hopping!

We appreciate your flexibility and vast knowledge. You are so much more than a DJ and MC - you were pretty much our planner. We appreciate all of your efforts to make our wedding spectacular!

Thank you!
