Here’s What Matters to Me Most

I’m obsessed with excellence and perfection.

My purpose is to bring your guests to life by creating an atmosphere where everyone from your grandmother to your nieces and nephews can enjoy themselves. I love finding the perfect song that puts a smile on a grandparent’s face, or causes older guests to get on the dance floor despite their claim that they don’t dance! By having and playing the right music, it is easy to create the experience that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

I appreciate being a part of a meaningful event.

Most events I perform at are once-in-a-lifetime events, which is why it’s so important that I provide the very best service, whether it’s a wedding, birthday, anniversary or corporate party. My clients expect and deserve the best! I’ve earned my reputation by exceeding those expectations and always delivering on my promises.

 
My experience has built me a great reputation.

Many companies and corporations such as Ferrari & Macy’s have hired me as MC and DJ for hundreds of parties and events. My experience also includes countless radio voice overs and TV commercials, as well as MC for some of Hartford’s largest outdoor events. Additionally, I have been the DJ for some of CT’s best party spots such as The Mohegan Sun Wolf’s Den, The Brickyard, Bourbon Street, Murphy & Scarletti’s & The PourHouse.

My promise to you:

From weddings to corporate events, you will deal only with me from start to finish. I never subcontract any wedding, party or event.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Will you be the one working our wedding?
Yes! I am the only person you’ll deal with from the phone calls, emails, pre-planning, right to the very last song at the reception.

Can we meet before signing a contract?
I recommend that for myself or any other vendor you’d like to hire.

How far do you travel for weddings?
I mostly work in CT, but will travel to NY, NJ, MA, RI, and other New England states. For further, out-of-state travel, we’ll discuss cost during our initial consultation.

Do you have liability insurance and can you provide me proof?
Yes I do and I can provide you a copy of my Certificate of Liability Insurance at any time.

Do you have backup equipment with you?
Yes! Beyond that, my backup equipment has backup equipment which I haul with my Sprinter Van. (Beware of DJs that use their SUV.) 

Will you take requests from my guests?
Yes, if you allow me to.

What kind of music do you carry?
Absolutely everything since the 1940s!

Does the cost include gratuity?
I do not add gratuity. It’s completely up to you based on the value you see from my services. It’s never expected, but is appreciated.

Do you offer a written contract?
Yes – always!

How long will you hold my date without a deposit?
Seven (7) days.

My ceremony is outside on the grounds of the venue. Will you have all the equipment needed to cover the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception areas at the same time?
Yes! I cover all areas. Once the event has started, there is no moving of equipment in order to reduce distractions.

Can I choose all the music for my wedding?
Absolutely – This is your party!

Can I supply you with a DO NOT Playlist?
Please do! It’s as important to know what you don’t want to hear at you wedding.

How up-to-date is your music collection?
Each week, I receive new music that hasn’t even played on the radio yet.

How do we pay for your services?
Cash, credit card, or personal check.

What My Clients Have Said…

Michael is THE best DJ I have experienced at a wedding! We did not stop dancing for the entire night! He kept the energy HIGH without a single lull. Mike is extremely professional and also knows how to keep everyone in the wedding party organized and on schedule. Mike has the best personality and we had a blast from our first conversation in our planning process to the end of the night of our wedding. We can’t recommend him highly enough, and look forward to seeing him DJ our cousin’s wedding as well! 
LIZ & FRANK
We can’t even begin to explain how amazing Mike was to work with. He’s so incredibly organized and patient. We had one request when we met with him which was to make our small wedding into a dance party. He did not let us down! Between the music he played, the uplighting, and the Photo Booth, he made our night perfection. It has been over a month since our wedding and we still receive compliments. We love hearing “That was the best wedding I’ve ever been to!” and “I’ve never danced so much in my life!.”
Mandi & Mark
There is a reason he is called THE Wedding DJ! Mike is simply the only choice if you want the best, most knowledgeable entertainer for your wedding day. He works with you to discuss your dos and do not’s for music and takes the time to craft your playlists so that they are EXACTLY what you want. He’s a phenomenal MC and he kept our dance floor packed all night long! We can’t thank him enough for his professionalism and talent – it truly made our reception amazing! 
KALEE & DAN
Mike is more than just a DJ. He is an event planner and MC behind the scenes. He was very well prepared and extremely knowledgeable about ceremony proceedings given his 25+ years in the industry. He really listens to and tunes into the fine details of our requests and found a way to incorporate our ideas with his expertise on ceremonies / receptions. Being the Type A personality that I am, his wedding reception guide was absolutely amazing to have and plan with. I think he “played” (all puns intended) a huge part in our day’s success and I was glad to have him be a part of my vendor team. My uncles are still floored by his ability to keep people on the dance floor. Look no further!

Mike was fantastic from start to finish. From the first conversation, we knew we would book him. On our wedding day, he went above and beyond for us! Multiple people even asked us if he was our wedding planner! Not only was he incredibly personable and professional, he was punctual and organized. He has his craft down to science. Most importantly, he made us feel like family and did everything he could to make sure our wedding day was pitch perfect. Did I mention the dance floor was grooving the entire night. Cannot recommend him enough! Mike is the bomb dot com!
