    Mike stayed in touch leading up to the event. He was confused about the start time though it was clearly specified in the booking and contract. Students enjoyed the evening. Maybe would have like a few more slow songs, especially earlier in the evening. Some thought he switched from one song to another too quickly.

    We couldn't have asked for a better DJ or service for our wedding! The dance floor was packed all night. Mike honored all song requests and kept the party going. If we could do it all over again we would pick Mike every time. You are missing out if you don't pick him for your next event or service! Leading up to the event he was very responsive and adaptive to changes and tweaks even on the night of the wedding! AWESOME job!!!

We want to inspire you to have the event you’ve always dreamed of, with your smiling family and friends there, celebrating with you as your dance floor is packed the entire night.

First, we invite you to browse the information at highimpactentertainment.com, gather information and formulate questions. We recommend checking out our Music Guide to help you with reception music ideas! To ensure we’re a good fit, we traditionally meet with prospective couples or clients at our design studio, coffeehouse or restaurant. For couples out of state or non-local, we use many types of video conferencing tools to accommodate you. After the audition, we’ll hold the date for one week and allow you time to think of additional questions for us. Once you’ve made your decision the booking process begins. We’ll draft the contract and send it to you for review. A retainer fee of $100.00 will secure the date. Welcome & planning emails are sent and we’ll set up your custom online planner. You’ll receive direct contact information to reach out at any point and discuss details about your event. Depending on your date, over the next few months we’ll work together to develop ideas and song lists, and answer any questions you have. Our planning software makes it easy to stay organized since you’re able to login on any computer or mobile device! Some additional features within the online planner include: Reception & Ceremony Planning Forms Song Request Tools Guest Song Requests & Links to Add to your own Wedding or event website We’ll conduct a final consult 1-3 weeks before your date to finalize the intricate details of your event. A basic example of this would be: — Timeline of Events — Music Selections & Dancefloor Discussions — Events & Activities — Anything Else At this point we’ll have a beautiful picture of how everything will flow, sound and feel. A few days before your event we’ll touch base again to check on any changes that may have occurred.
