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. We received great feedback from the guests about the live music. He played and sang our first dance song and it was perfect. Thank you for making our wedding special.

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

The Wedding Celebration is on June 24th. Michael has been very professional and is working with the Bride and Groom with their music wishes. Original Wedding was moved to a small family ceremony last June and this is the Wedding Celebration Reception a year later!

Michael was great to work with for our wedding this past weekend as I would hire him again for another party! He was quick to respond to any requests for my event. His selections of music was great for our reception that got the guests dancing even at a brunch wedding. He made it so much fun ! His guitar playing was remarkable for the ceremony. I would recommend him to anyone on the market for a DJ who also plays guitar and bagpipes. Thank you for being part of our big day!

10/10 recommend hiring Michael for your event! I recently hired him to DJ my wedding and could not be more pleased with his services. From the start, Michael made the planning process simple and easy for us. He was quick to respond and always had a “can do” attitude. He really understood the vibe we wanted, and picked all the right songs to match to keep the dance floor going all night long! Thank you Michael!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I love what I do and I charge a fair and competitive fee that I believe is a great value. Just a week ago I was performing for a wedding and at the end of the event the bride handed me a check for the final balance due. When I went to cash it I looked down and realized the bride had wrote, "The best money I spent on my wedding," at the bottom of my check. She made my day and much, much more....

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to use a worksheet that lays out all of the possibilities of what I can provide for the event. Then I work with the customer to fine tune those details and custom tailor my services to fit their unique event perfectly.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have my Bachelor Degree in Music and Sound Engineering, 25 years experience in the business, and I have taught Music at the University level for 18 years. I have a vast understanding of how to perform, compose, and mix music as well as what it takes to properly fill a room with music.
