I recently worked with Michael Sisco on March 8th, 2014. I hired Michael to be provide the music for a non-profit event. I was truly impressed by his professionalism and expertise in his craft. Michael engaged the audience and worked with my staff and guest speakers to ensure that the program ran smoothly! Michael Sisco helped make my event a huge success! I will definitely work with him again!

Karaoke Machine Rental
Mike was amazing!!! For the first time ever, I planned an office party for my job (an elementary charter school). From the moment I placed a request for a karaoke DJ, Mike was consistent in his communication, provided all information needed, and was flexible when it came to payment (the first part was done!). The moment he started playing, the building was pumping with great music!! My colleagues loved him and his personality, the wide variety of songs, and sung their hearts out! (Second part was a success!). I can't wait to work with Mike again, and strongly encourage others to do so as well!

We booked DJ Michael Sisco for our Ceremony and wedding that took place February 28, 2014 month ago at The Vanderbilt located on south beach. I received his name as a recommendation from one of my best friend that used him for their wedding. The wedding was a blast and Mike as I call him played great music, having a keen sense for what the crowd wants to hear. It sounds easy, but with a room filled with people ranging from their teens to my grandparents. Mike is open minded and maintain great communication. We had in-depth conversation detailing the type of music we liked and if we had any particular requests. What made it comfortable and easier for me is that he attune, a real pleasure because there is nothing I like less than repeating myself a couple of months later with what I want if we spoke about it already. Sure enough, our handful of requests made it into the playlist sprinkled with other crowd pleasing gems. The dance floor was full the whole night and people were having a blast. In fact, I dance all night LONG Mike truly made our wedding day a night to remember.
In terms of doing business with Mick, he was on-time and responded in a prompt manner via e-mail, whenever we ran a new idea or song choice by him. I would use him again for any upcoming family events/parties. I highly recommend him if you have a special occasion coming up.

Mike does DJ/Karoake for our BCT fundraiser every year! Mike always has the most up to date catalogue - every song request is filled! In addition the kids love the opportunity to do karaoke. I have been hiring Mike for at least ten years and have never once been disappointed! He confirms our plans ahead of time, checking to make sure that he will have anything special I might be looking to have and shows up promptly with more than enough set up time! I never have that "I hope the DJ gets here in time" feeling. Also most important I never feel like he is clockwatching! You can tell that he loves what he does and that in shows in his performance. Thanks Mike for always making our BCT parties a success! Looking forward to another great party in March

I threw my sister a surprise graduation party when she graduated college. I'd made it an 80's theme and lemme tell you --Mike went above and beyond the call of duty to make it absolutely 80's! The "karaoke wheel of death" with all 80's songs was not only perfect bit was a nice twist on traditional karaoke. Fun and interesting -- trust me you won't regret hiring him for your next event!

Sisco Kid worked his magic at my son's 30th surprise birthday at the Old Carriage Inn. Great KJ, great song choices, very reasonable prices. If you have a party and want to have karaoke, Sisco Kid is "singing" my praises!!!!!!

My husband and I had been karaokeing with Mike Sisco at the Old Carriage Inn in Park Slope for a while, and when we decided we wanted to throw a Karaoke Party for our one year anniversary, we knew we wanted to hire him to be our MC for the evening, which was from 7pm to midnight. He knows how to get the party started! And more importantly, how to keep it going. He's a great DJ as well as KJ. And the man can SING! He's got a great selection, and if you can't find what you're looking for, he will do his best to find it! He was so accommodating to us and to our guests that we can't wait until our 2nd anniversary to throw another party. My only regret is that we didn't book him for longer (time flies when you're having the best time ever). If you want the most awesome host to your party, Sisco is your man! I can't recommend him enough.

Mike is a fantastic DJ. He is a consummate professional. He honored all of our requests. There are too many DJ's that just go into auto pilot and do the same cliched thing every single party. Mike is not that boring ordinary DJ. He really listened to what we wanted and came through big time. It's obvious that he strives to make each event exactly what you want it to be.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We are always looking into new ideas and trends in the world of karaoke. From software to gear, and more. Our current R&D project is karaoke requests by remote, no more hunting for books or writing out slips again! And you can do this... over your own smartphone!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I kind of got into it by accident. I went to a karaoke night at a local bar and just fell in love with doing it! I made a lot of friends, and had such a good time, that it snowballed from there, from assisting a KJ to getting my own gear and starting my own business!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We are specialized for karaoke. We do DJ work of course, but all of our gear was designed with the singer in mind, as well as taking up a small footprint for our business owners!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We host a performance for a local memory center once a month. Its great to see the members of the center respond to the songs! Some get up and dance a little bit as well! It ALWAYS puts a smile on my face!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
See if they can send you a copy of their songbook in advance, this way you can look for songs, or make a request if you can't find your favorites before they get to the event!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Like all DJs, a good karaoke host will spend a lot of their off hour time listening to music, finding new tracks, and looking at new ways to update their performances. We also usually carry more equipment then a regular DJ does for a small party (if you don't include lights).
