Michael was wonderful to work with - quick responses during the planning process and arrived early for set-up. He served as our DJ during our conference kick-off reception and got the tone just right. He began with fun background music to encourage networking and then made a flawless transition to the dance-party vibe we wanted to end the night. The dance floor was packed and he kept the crowd pumped. We also hired Michael to play background guitar music during a more intimate VIP reception another night, and we were very pleased. He played beautifully but completely understood that the event was intended to be a working function - so he kept the volume at the right level to be entertaining but not overpowering. We would work with Michael again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend his services - you'll be pleased!

We couldn’t have had anyone do any better than Michael. He was very thorough in evaluating our music choices and made sure that our specific songs were played. Everyone danced at our wedding and I don’t think there was one person that didn’t. Everyone also commented on the wonderful music choices that he synchronized so perfectly. It was a wonderful and perfect day! Michael is an exceptional DJ.

We chose Michael to DJ our wedding & couldn't have been happier with how he did! He played live music for our ceremony which was outdoors in Feburary in snowy conditions & we loved it. Michael is very responsive, very friendly & he did everything he promised. It's hard to fathom how many moving parts there were, but Michael was great, he got there early & set everything up so all of the transitions were seamless & he was prepared for everything so he didn't have to hassle us on our special day. Thanks so much Michael & if you're considering him, just make it happen, you won't regret it!

It was so great to have Michael to play live music at our wedding. He dressed up professionally and showed up on time to set up the instruments.

Michael was so wonderful to work with! He really made our day so special from the ceremony to the reception. Also, through the process he would reach out and ask different questions on what I wanted to do. Stuff I didn’t even think about. He really helped ease my stress of our big day knowing he was there. The music was great. He also checked in with us throughout the night. He kept the event on a good schedule and really made our wedding a fun party! Thank you Michael we both truly appreciated you. - Devyan and Amanda
