Mike was very professional when we met him and made sure to answer all our questions so we had what we needed for our wedding. He was happy to negotiate a fair price for our small size wedding. He prepared us well with the Playlist and made sure everything was setup to run smoothly during the wedding. We had a last minute venue change and he had no problem moving there. We were very happy with the service Mike provided and would recommend him to others needing a good DJ.

DJ the mood was the most perfect person to DJ our wedding. He was extremely easy to communicate with, very responsive, and gave us great feedback for song suggestions. We had several phone calls, text and emails leading up to the wedding to make sure we were on the same page. Michael showed up on time, set up quickly and was ready to go before many of our vendors. During the ceremony and reception he did an awesome job of reading the crowd and playing music to keep the dance floor packed. He also has an extensive library and taste of music for all of the “in between” moments (cocktail hour, pre ceremony seating etc. ). Would highly recommend him to anyone needing a DJ!

DJ the Mood was the perfect choice for our wedding this past weekend. He was professional, open to crazy ideas, always answered emails, and laid back to what my husband and I wanted to play. He had our dance floor packed all night! Highly recommend!

Wedding DJ

He did a great job at being the MC and DJ. Played good songs to keep people on the dance floor and even got out there himself and danced near the end. Happy with service

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

    I do not have a standard pricing system. I custom tailor packages to fit the client's needs. I can offer special services depending on the occasion such as offering an audio recording of your event or providing custom lighting for any environment.

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

    I like to listen to the client's needs and provide customized packages based on his/her needs. I like to remain as flexible as possible and communicate in whatever methods and timelines the client feels most comfortable with.

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

    I have a minor in music from St. Edward's University. I have also studied vocal performance at the Florence University of the Arts in Florence, Italy. I have played musical saw with Michael Kiwanuka and bass guitar with several bands around Austin, TX.
