We officially tied the knot on October 12th and were fortunate enough to have Mike as our DJ. Mike came HIGHLY recommended by numerous people in the Capital Region. Five minutes into our first meeting together over a year ago, I knew he was going to throw us a PARTY. Mike amazed me when we met one month before the wedding, with his post-it notes, highlighters and files. His organization and attention to detail made me so incredibly happy. Mike remembered everything we requested, and was more than happy to satisfy our "wild and crazy" ideas.... he even helped us pull off a flash mob style conga line, father of the bride speech accompanied by music, and a wedding party dance number.
My husband and I cannot stress enough how absolutely incredible Mike was to work with. His energy was contagious and he had the entire dance floor packed the whole night. Mike has true talent - he knows his music, and more importantly follows his intuition, reading the audience and knowing exactly what to play and when, to get the guests moving. We only had to give Mike a short list of our favorite songs for him to pick-up on our vibe and understand our style.
We had all our faith in the world in Mike. To us, music was one of the most important elements of our wedding, and I can honestly say that we did not worry about this once! We trusted Mike and he BLEW US AWAY, as we knew he would.
Three weeks later our guests are still raving about our wedding, and how the whole night was filled with so much energy and laughter. That is in LARGE part thanks to Mike.
Mike - we only hope we get to work with you again some time in the future!

Mike Garrasi of Music Man Entertainment was such a joy to work with. His professionalism was impressive. He always got back to you right away if you asked him anything. Plus his knowledge about what songs would be the most fitting were spot on. He's extremely personable and he has a unique understanding for what it takes to create a perfect reception. My husband and I went back and forth on whether to use the Up Lighting. From our experience we would have to definitively say go with the Up Lighting. It's worth every penny. It added character and atmosphere to the reception. If you are in the process of looking for a DJ and don't know who to pick, Mike Garrasi is your DJ. Thank you Mike for all your support and your expertise to make our special night even more special.

I loves working with Mike! He has such a great energy and loves his job. He is easily available and easy to work with. He really know what he is talking about and made my wedding planning easier with his great suggestions an upbeat personality. He kept the dancing going at my small wedding and I would definitely recommend him to my friends!
Because he is freaking awesome! Mike Garrasi of Music Man was the best DJ a bride and groom could ask for!!! He is so accommodating, lively and knows how to get a (wedding) party going! My (now) husband and I have completely opposite tastes in music and yet both of us were on that dance floor - he made both of us very happy. My husband and I adored him - this is a guy you feel like you have been friends with for years and want to be friends with after the wedding! Love, Love, Love!
Mike Garrasi does an incredible job of offering you and your wedding party as much or as little as you want. He is always on the ball with what you want on the day, not only in terms of the songs you want played but also the feel and atmosphere you want too.
Mike Garrasi strikes an incredible relationship with his bride and groom and is friendly, attentive and puts you at ease on your big day.
We organized our wedding from London yet Mike ensured he was always available for questions and made sure he spent the time to get to know us over several Skype meetings, to really get a feel for us as a couple, our families and what we wanted.
We barely gave Mike a song list yet through talking to us and listening to what we had to say he picked up on the fact we just wanted our wedding to be fun for all our guests and our dance floor filled. On the day Mike is great at reading the room and knowing exactly what his audience wanted.
We added up-lighting and our monogram to our package months after the initial order with with Mike which added even more wonder to our beautiful day.
Mike Garrasi will act as your DJ, your host, your events organizer, your greeter and will be as much or as little as you want him to be.
Mike was amazing! A 5 star review is an understatement, he deserves 10 stars! He is so amazing to work with and so helpful with everything from helping me find my photographer to helping me pick our songs! Not only was the music great but his uplighting made the room complete! We had multiple guests comment on how great the music was and they were having such a great time dancing. When Mike asked me what kind of music we wanted all I gave him was that we wanted to have fun and dance, and that is what he gave us! The dance floor was never empty and everyone was dancing and having a great time! If your looking for a great DJ and to have a great time Mike is your man!!!!
My husband and I had Music Man for our wedding DJ in August and we absolutely loved him!! He was great to work with and was truly available whenever you wanted to talk. I highly recommend him for any events as a DJ. We will definitely be using him again in the future. :)
Mike by far is the best DJ out there!!! If you are looking for a DJ, look no longer because you will not find anyone better than Mike!!! His customer service skills and attention to detail are beyond wonderful!!!! He made the entire process so easy and comfortable! Our dance floor was PACKED all night long!!! From his music selection to the uplighting and dance floor lights he provided; we couldn't have asked for anything better!!! Mike definitely enhanced our wedding experience!! All of our guests were impressed with Mike!!! We will definitely be recommending Mike to everyone we know!!!!
Mike Garrasi is an amazing DJ! Such a pleasure to work with, and had the dance floor packed all night. He was spot on for introductions and everyone had such a good time. I would highly recommend Mike, you will not find a better DJ!!!!!
Above and beyond
Mike was such a great DJ! He had awesome energy, was very responsive, and very flexible for our last minute changes. Our guests couldn't stop telling us how great the energy was the night of our wedding, we highly recommend Mike as a DJ for your next event. Uplighting is highly recommended as well!
We had already heard such great things about DJ Mike Garrasi, so we knew we were in good hands. He met with us a couple of times to make sure we were 100% on the same page, and on the day of our wedding, everything was perfect! We kept getting compliments from our friends, and our guests were LOVING the dance floor!! With Mike, you not only get a GREAT DJ, but also a friend, and a true wedding pro! Thanks, Mike!!
Mike was our DJ for our wedding on 9/5/14. We would not change a thing! The music was continuous and the energy was great. Mike was polite and respectful. Our best man made a speech and ended it with a quote from a led zeppelin song. The next song that was played was that song...without any request from us or our best man. That just shows you how attentive mike is. If you're thinking of a DJ for your next event and mike is available ...do it!!! you honestly don't need any second options :)
Mike is the best DJ we could have hoped for!! We booked him early after hearing and reading good reviews about him and he did not disappoint! He went above and beyond the call of duty; even taking time from his family vacation to return my initial call when asking if he was available for our date.
He had plenty of suggestions when we did not know what songs to choose for different parts of our reception. He really understood our music tastes, as well as our guests - he had people up and dancing during the dinner music - something we did not anticipate! And then kept the party going until the last minute of our reception.
We had guests requests songs on our response cards and Mike was very good about fitting the songs in without missing a beat! We absolutely want to go to another wedding where he is the Music Man!
Mike was an awesome DJ to have at our wedding this past weekend. We hit it off from our first phone conversation and he was such an easy going guy to work with. He played exactly what we wanted and kept the party going the entire night. The dance floor was filled and the energy was fantastic. He is professional, honest, and we will use him for future events!
Mike was our DJ for our wedding reception at the National Museum of Dance. From the moment we met him we knew he was the right person for us. He is always professional, personable, and has a great taste in music! Mike was always prompt in getting back to us, even when we weren't so quick to get back to him. He was very proactive to ask both what types of music we wanted to hear at the reception and also what we absolutely didn't want to hear. At the reception, Mike worked very well with our other vendors (most had recommended him as their favorite DJ) and always asked us if we were ready for the next thing. He never pressured us into doing things faster than we wanted, or surprised people with events that they weren't ready/in the right spot to do. We took his suggestion to use up-lighting on the columns at NMD and it really made the most of the room and allowed us to transition from an elegant dinner to a party after the meal. Best of all, Mike kept the dance floor packed all night with great music and we have been getting compliments ever since on how great a night everyone had!
Mike was an awesome DJ to work with. He listened to all the requests we had given him and followed them. Mike makes sure your guests are having a good time and makes sure you as the bride and groom are all set. He has awesome uplighting and monograming!! Don't waste your time looking for any other DJ's!
These guys were awesome and our guests loved them! They entertained all night and rocked the crowd! We met with them on the phone several times to plan our music and what we wanted. They have an online form that can be edited which was very organized and convenient. The lights were amazing and really added to our reception. Our one goal was to have people up and dancing throughout the night and they really were, which allowed us to have a lot of great pictures! At one point everyone was on the dance floor towards the end. They were great!
After googling every DJ in the capital area, one name kept popping up with 5 star reviews everywhere…The Musicman Mike Garrasi. There is a reason his name pops up so much, he is by far the best DJ ever. He exceeded all of our expectations. My husband and I felt like he knew us for years by all of his music selections. He truly made our wedding spectacular. We might have lost a few pounds just dancing the night away. At first I thought I wanted a band for our wedding, at this moment 24 hours after our wedding I am so grateful that we chose a DJ and even more grateful that we chose Mike Garrasi!
Mike Garrasi is absolutely the best wedding DJ. He is so professional yet easy going and so extremely helpful. He loved our music choices and respected what we wanted and didn't want. We were planning our wedding long distance and Mike was great at responding to emails and helping us figure out what would work for us for our day. We truly ended up with the perfect wedding.
Mike and our other vendors worked so well together. It really wasn't stressful at all thanks to Mike and our other vendors who made everything run so smoothly. I wouldn't consider anyone else for a wedding DJ. Mike is the absolute greatest!
