Ken Schaffer is a life-long, dedicated wedding and event professional. Being an event DJ started out as a teenage vision for Ken. That vision became a hobby and passion, which led to a full-time business, building and operating one of the largest entertainment companies in the Philadelphia region.
Eventually Ken stepped away from the day to day operations of his own company and relocated to the South Jersey Shore. Shore living was wonderful, but something was missing. The realization set in that running a large business was not as rewarding as personally working with clients who often became friends through planning and entertaining at their events.
The second chapter of Ken’s career started at the South Jersey shore, entering radio full-time and helping local charities by providing DJ-MC entertainment for their events. Getting back to the roots of entertaining and working one on one with clients was a pleasure and a calling and as the saying goes, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life!”.
Learning each client’s vision to planning music and a detailed timeline, formal introductions, special dances and celebrating right up to the last dance of the evening is a personalized experience and a passion. There’s nothing like an ecstatic couple thanking you for making their day special and one they’ll always treasure. This led to forming Ken Schaffer Entertainment, LLC, which now operates as a boutique entertainment offering based on Ken as the lead entertainer, guaranteed in most cases and only a small group of select, vetted professional entertainers. When my name is on the line, it MUST be handled with the utmost in professionalism.
Ken presently hosts Totally 80s, heard weeknights from 7pm until midnight on Wibbage FM 94.3 and around the globe at WIBG.com. Personally, he is active in animal rescue and serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Marine Mammal Stranding Center of Brigantine, NJ. Professionally, Ken is a board member and has served as past President of the Brigantine Chamber of Commerce, as well as serving on various other boards and professional organizations. He was awarded “Best of The Knot” in the DJ Category for five consecutive years since 2018 and selected as “Best DJ” locally in the Reader’s Choice Nightlife Awards for 2020 in Atlantic City.
