DJ Leslie [Owner] started out in College Radio on Cape Cod while she was in her early teens. Several years later she was spinning for the dance scene in Boston and Manhattan, then moved on to play clubs all over the world.. Leslie hosted music programs on BET, and was featured on numerous news & entertainment programs.
Feature articles written about DJ Leslie appear in The Seattle P-I, Seattle Times, Vancouver Sun and Seattle Magazine among others. Locally, she has performed at The Showbox, Paramount Theatre, Benaroya Hall, and was opening act for national bands including Dave Matthews and Earth Wind and Fire. DJ Leslie and Symphony conductor Ludovic Morlot combined their talents with the Seattle Symphony and created a Music Mash up of the RITE OF SPRING. Leslie teamed up with Macklemore and the RTF Crew for Runway to Freedom, a night of music and fashion to benefit Mary’s Place. Leslie has been named on countless boards and committees in the Seattle area, lending her event insight, organizational skills and expertise for events. Most recently, Leslie was asked to fly back to Manhattan to do the opening week after-party of Cher’s Broadway musical “The Cher Show” and has headlined as DJ and Emcee for many corporate fetes, including HULU, Expedia, and Allen Institute.


DJ Sean [owner] has spun over 1000 events in night clubs, corporate events and weddings. Originally from Los Angeles, he is also a successful musician, having toured and recorded for various music projects, including a stint for A&M Records.. “I like to think that my music background helps me when I DJ,” states Sean, “it provides me with a good sense of timing and feeling, and my diverse musical taste allows me to adapt to any situation.”
This helps especially with weddings, where so many clients have so many different tastes: “I’m amazed at how many different kinds of music people are into. While a bride may be into 90s hip hop, the groom may be into old school funk and edm. The key is making everyone happy at a wedding reception, including the parents and grandparents!” A record collector since the age of 10, Sean’s collection is extensive and eclectic to say the least. From Ella Fitzgerald to the Velvet Underground, Dr. Dre to Drake and everything in between, he can handle any request from the typical top 40 to that obscure 80’s Cure song that the bride just has to hear. Lately he has been expanding his world music collection, allowing for an even wider musical palette. His true love is jazz and the classics however – his favorite singers are Nat King Cole and Fats Waller – but he has no problem mixing them in with a great Motown hit, a swinging Latin tune, an indie rock song or a newer dance floor hit. The key is finding the right place for the right song.

DJ Sean is the man! We hired him for our wedding on Whidbey Island and could not have been more pleased. He did a great job organizing the crowd without being over the top or distracting. Super professional and classy. He was very receptive to our pre-discussed music selections but also took recommendations and tailored to the crowd. He even let us use his projector at the last minute at no additional cost. All around great find.

Off the hook! Leaslie and Seattle Parties were a hit. They were priced right. Not the cheapest and not the most expensive either. The value Leslie delivered exceeded our expectations. Use them if they are available. Having Leslie MC, and help guide our wedding night along was done flawlessly. People couldn't stop talking about the music and from the time the music started, people didn't stop dancing until the end of the night. A blast was had by all.

We loved DJ Sean! From our first meeting you could tell he was passionate about music in general and a true expect in his field. We had a wide span of ages and tastes and he covered them all. The sound for the ceremony was perfect, no glitches, and he made us an audio recording which we love. His pricing was fair and inclusive. We didn't have to worry about extra hours or add on's. Highly recommend! All around great find.

We were referred to DJ Leslie of Seattle Parties through our friends who had hired her for their wedding. The moment we met her, we knew that she was the perfect choice to bring the party on our special day! Leslie met with us several times leading up to our wedding and was very resourceful in helping us select songs. On the day of our wedding, she not only had everyone out of their seats dancing, but she also did a great job keeping us on a timeline for toasts, first dances, etc. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, and she definitely didn't disappoint! I would highly recommend DJ Leslie and Seattle Parties to anyone for their special event. Thank you, Leslie!

AMAZING! My partner and I just got married and music was a critical component of the entire day. When we met DJ Leslie, we knew she was the right choice. She listened as we talked about the type of music we wanted and guided us through brilliantly - from the moment guests arrived until the last one left. Music was always present and always fit the moment in time. Our day was so special and she made it truly unforgettable. This was a destination wedding that required a few hours of travel. She never gave it a second thought. We had every confidence in her and she didn't disappoint. I'd get married again just to hire DJ Leslie!

Hiring DJ Sean was one of the first and best decisions we made. He has a very laid-back approach and we were immediately comfortable with him - he isn't about the bells and whistles, just wants to play great music and throw a good party. Our reception music was perfect and everyone had a great time on the dance floor. Everything was exactly as we discussed and the songs transitioned smoothly; we got a lot of compliments about the music from our guests too. He also helped cut our first dance song to our desired length and provided uplighting. I couldn't recommend Seattle Parties more - they're affordable and Sean was so easy to work with. Thank you!!

  •   I had the greatest time at my friend's wedding but the best part by far was being on the dance floor with DJ Leslie.
    She was so energetic, was spot on with her music selections, and kept everyone having a blast on the dance floor all night. I would highly recommend!

  •   We couldn't be more happy with Leslie and every thing she did to make our wedding memorable!  She did a wonderful job of making sure everything stayed on track and stayed true to our music choices!  She has a soothing voice and a calm demeanor. Her professionalism and attention to detail as the MC made for a great day all around.

  •   I loved working with Sean for our wedding! Super easy to work with, straight forward, and knows his stuff. He goes with the flow and handles everything so you don't have to worry about anything. He did an amazing job picking out music despite my vague requests and all announcements were done seamlessly.

  •   I have known Lesle and Sean for over 24 years. I hired Seattle Parties for my wedding in Indianola in 2011. They traveled by ferry, staying until the guests left. The d.j. worked with me to help alleviate any worries. My bff hired them for her 2017 wedding at Columbia Tower. Sean's energy was perfect, the wedding was a blst.

  •   Sean DJed our wedding at the Seattle Aquarium earlier this month, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! We had numerous guests remark to us starting form the cocktail hour how great the music was. Sean kept the dance floor bumping the whole night and was gracious about receiving requests. Many family members that don't tend to stay late at family weddings stayed and danced the night away.

    Sean was great to work with leading up to the wedding, letting us share moods with him through a Spotify playlist, and working with us to get the dance rituals (e.g., first dance) and entrances right. We recommend Sean to anyone in the Seattle area looking to host an event where people have a good time.

    Thanks Sean!
