We wish there were more stars to give! Mike and his son DJ'd our wedding and we had the best time! He did the uplighting (inside and outside), the chairs, the dance floor gobo, the pinspot on the cake, and all of the audio for the ceremony and reception! He was amazing! The day... Read More went so smoothly and everyone was on the dance floor the entire time. We even had multiple guests comment that in all of the weddings they have attended, he was the best! We highly recommend Mike and Carcano DJ. They are easy to work with and made our event so special. Thank you to the whole Carcano DJ team for an amazing wedding! - Mike & Katie Fox

Carcano DJ. Mike Carcano himself DJ'd my wedding and let me tell you, IT WAS FABULOUS. HE was fabulous. I was so happy with the turn out of the night. He kept my dance floor jumping and was so wonderful when I was breaking down, crying over the guest count going over. He was... Read More sweet, cheerful, funny, and accommodating! He was fine with any last minute changes and even let my sister do a sound check rehearsal to a song she wanted to sing. He is a stand up guy and he and his company deserve nothing but positive reviews. They played just about every song I requested and even my country songs!! It was great. If you want a DJ that will deliver as well as this guy, he is definitely worth however much it costs. I also rented uplights and audio/visual services from him. Two big thumbs up for Mike Carcano! :)

Great music and energy!

There is nothing more convenient during the wedding planning process, than finding the right vendor for one service and then learning they offer other services you need. That was our experience with Carcano DJ Audio Visual & Lighting. We were initially interested Carcano for its... Read More DJ services and ended up using their services for much more, including master of ceremonies, Chiavari chairs, pipe & drape, lighting, etc. On top of that, they referred us to our wonderful photographer Stefani Welsh Photography, our fun and modern photo booth vendor Capture Photo Booths and even part of our evening entertainment, the talented duo Bolero Soul. Carcano is a great family-owned business and the quintessential one-stop-shop. We are truly lucky we met Mike and Debbie early on in our wedding planning process.
