Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ


When I thought about what I wanted my reputation as a Wedding MC & DJ to be, I knew that "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 sound, lighting, and visual technology to create unforgettable presentations. I wanted to combine Host, Director and Master of Ceremonies into one role and be more than a "DJ that makes announcements". But most of all, I wanted to develop a planning process that would make me the easiest wedding vendor couples worked with.

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

Planning a wedding can be an overwhelming task. Seriously, there are so many things to consider. Selecting the right entertainment is an investment into your celebration’s success, and one of the most important factors you will consider for your special day. I understand the importance of your celebration, and will create a stress-free entertainment experience that you will never forget. I believe in authenticity, and will use a modern approach to wedding entertainment that will keep you in the spotlight without using “cheesy” and outdated DJ techniques.

Imagine this: from the format of your cocktail hour… to your Grand Entrance…through dinner… cake cutting… the First Dance and parent dances… to the dancing… to the final farewell and send off, I will work directly with you to materialize your wedding vision to perfection. I do not use a “cookie cutter” approach to wedding entertainment because every affair is unique and every client is different. From fun to elegant, and everything in between, I will be able to accommodate.

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

If you have ever flown first class, stayed at a five-star hotel, driven a luxury automobile or dined at an upscale restaurant, you’ll appreciate the value, signature service and peace of mind that my clients have come to experience.

My distinctive value is through a combination of attentive hospitality, detailed event direction and award-winning talent. A wedding isn’t just something I do, it’s something I do with passion.

Mikey & Jenny

Like clockwork, my father will text me each Sunday morning inquiring how the previous night’s wedding went. On this particular Sunday morning, I replied back with simply one all-caps word about Mikey and Jenny’s wedding reception at The Pickering Barn in Issaquah, Washington: “LEGENDARY”

Jared & Kasi

On my way to Swiftwater Cellars for Kasi & Jared’s wedding, I had the biggest ear-to-ear grin: I was DJing at one of my favorite venues, one of my favorite photographers, and wedding client, Amy Walton, was also working this wedding, the Seahawks were headed back to the Super Bowl, and I only had to keep Kasi’s surprise to Jared under wraps for a few more hours…

Patrick & Jennifer

Email subject lines like this – “In the market for a rad Wedding DJ” – will always grab my attention. Messages that include “Friday Evening. Sodo Park. 200 people who love to DANCE” get immediate replies from me; especially since every wedding I have done at Sodo Park has been an unforgettable night. And thus began my relationship with Jen and Patrick, affectionately known as “The Shintars”.

My job is to plan a great reception flow, create amazing formality presentations, direct everything behind-the-scenes, introduce moments, and play the right song at the right time. Your job? Be A Star From The Moment You Walk In.

Gentlemen: Do A Groom’s Speech. Here’s How. | Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ

There is only one thing I strongly encourage all of the grooms I work with to exclusively* do during their wedding reception: deliver a Groom's Speech. For some, the fear in their eyes shows immediate as I speak those two words; many grooms already dread having to write, and speak, their own wedding vows. The fact is, a Groom's Speech shouldn't be something you fear

Tony Schwartz

a marquee open format dj

For the past decade, Tony Schwartz has been setting new standards in the private event industry. 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!

Age: 29

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

Hobbies & Interests: Watching Seahawks football in the winter, Red Sox baseball in the summer; attending concerts; exercise and recreational sports; drinking espresso, beer, and fine wine; comedy shows, magic shows and movies; hanging out with my English bulldog, Chesney.

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!
