DJ Mike was honestly beyond perfect from start to finish. His uplighting looked so beautiful and made my entire wedding look so expensive and classy. My Hubby and I were looking back and realized that he was the one vendor we had that we ENJOYED meeting with and getting emails... Read More from. He was so calm and professional and excited to be our DJ, it made us feel very at ease and honored. I have to say Mike 100% made our wedding as magical as it was. He did exactly what we asked and played every song we requested. His equipment sounds oustanding and he kept everyone dancing so hard my bridesmaids had to run to CVS to get band aids for their blisters. His wesbite is so easy to use and his music choices were excellently beat blended. He never played anything too loud. All our guests were dancing, even 86 yr old grandma. If this paragraph isn't enough, please read below some of my favorite parts. The ceremony - The ceremony was in a tiny little garden next to a busy street. I could hear the music so loud and clear and I love how you blended the songs and even turned it up right before I walked out. Your speakers were so clear I heard the exact part to walk out to and I cried the second I heard Canon in D start playing. Everyone was crying. They said the sound and garden combination enveloped them in the experience. The cocktail hour - I could hear from the picture taking sessions some awesome islandy upbeat songs playing and everyone looked like they were having so much fun. The reception - I cannot even express how beautiful your lighting was. I LOVED the hints of red on our monogram as you changed to the violet color too. The peachy blush was perfect and it looked like a masterpiece , never overly colorful or tacky. You made our venue look so much better and even more luxurious and expensive. My photographer said she didn't even need flash in many of the photos because you lit the place so well. The music - oh my GOD the music. Every song you played I noticed it from my list, you blended all the beats and transitioned everything FLAWLESSLY. It was seriously the best sounding wedding reception I have ever witnessed. The dancing songs came on at the perfect time and seriously ( I know you saw too) everyone was dancing and having a great time. You did such an awesome job of picking the right song at the right time, all off the list I sent. The ones you added were perfect as well. I really can't tell you enough how great it was. Your announcements were perfect and helped everyone exit on time. Your work made the venue and entire evening so special and classy. From beginning to end, you have made this entire experience so enjoyable and easy. I will absolutely 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone I know who is having any kind of event. I want everyone to know how incredible he was and how special he made our evening. Your efforts were NOT overlooked, I promise.

DJ Mike is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! He makes all of your wedding worries and stress disappear by answering all of your questions and being so professional. I felt like I was talking to a friend about my wedding instead of a vendor. He is as excited as you are for your wedding day and... Read More it makes it even more exciting! He provides stunning work and is a pleasure to work with. DJ Mike was just brilliant and so was his son Michael! I had the absolute pleasure to have them at my wedding on 12/23/16. The up-lights made my venue feel like a fairy tale. The "dancing on the cloud" smoke was absolutely jaw dropping for our first dance and the music was alive and had everybody dancing! Everybody couldn't stop talking about how perfect my wedding was! Absolutely memorable! My wedding was an absolute success because I hired Michael Anthony Productions. DJ Mike's personality will lift anybody's spirit and it is no wonder that he is a huge success. He was always professional and available to answer all of my questions. I had absolutely no idea how to make my dream wedding become a reality but DJ Mike made it all happen! I couldn't be more grateful. His son Michael was another huge part of my wedding, he was very professional and his DJ skills were awesome! If you have not found your Wedding DJ please don't look any further.

He is absolutely THE BEST!!! I have done my research really well and contacted other vendors with high ratings but as soon as I talked to Michael over the phone I decided to work with him. He is so passionate about his job and he took my wedding as serious as I did. I talked to... Read More other DJs for a consultation and I knew they wanted the job but they were not excited about it at all. Michael was as excited as I was!!! He drove almost two hours to my venue and two hours back just to see it and to make sure he brings the best up-lights for us, he could just ask for venue pictures like other vendors did but he drove total of 4 hours to see the venue and talk to me about my music choices, and planning. I had an outdated venue and I was nervous about how it was going to look like and after the up-lights and the other lights for centerpieces (I think called bean lights) my venue looked like a scene from a fairytale!!! My guests were amazed, and someone said she got chills when she walked inside. I will be forever grateful for what Michael did with up-lighting. My ceremony was absolutely magical, and when it came to reception music I did not make it any easier for him because I wanted a mix playlist includes Top 20, 80s, Latin, Turkish and belly dancing songs!! I am not even kidding. He was able to entertain a crowd from 5-6 different cultures. We are Turkish, my husband's family are Italian and Puerto Rican, my guests were a mix of those three and also American and Albanian, and Indian. Everyone had a blast!!! We all danced until our feet hurt. I am a perfectionist and I would absolutely recommend Michael to everyone who want to have the best music and lighting on their wedding day. He was absolutely amazing, very professional, positive, excited, responsive, and passionate. I do not know if it gets any better than this. Thank you for everything you have done Mike!!!

I will start by saying that if you're looking for a DJ, look no further because DJ Mike is absolutely amazing! From the first point of contact to saying goodbye at the wedding Mike was perfect. He was helpful, had amazing suggestions, he was quick to respond to anything we... Read More needed, and made our whole experience with him one that we won't forget. I have to mention his website too because it is fantastic. After you book him you get a client login where you can customize every aspect of your wedding so he is prepared and ready for your day. The whole site is very user-friendly and honestly kind of fun to play around with. He met with us at our venue two weeks before and my husband and I were so excited to see that he was excited. It is such a comforting feeling to have someone step in and know exactly what they are doing and Mike did just that. On the day of, he was prompt and had set up completed in no time. The ceremony music that I requested he play was beautiful, and he knows exactly when to fade out of a song. Though my husband and I were taking pictures through most of cocktail hour, I could hear the music he was playing for it and I couldn't have been happier. We discussed what type to play and he absolutely nailed it. I had several songs on our "must-play" list and our "play if possible" list and from those requests he was able to totally figure out our style of music and played all of the right things. Our guests were so happy with the music barely anyone left the dance floor! Mike knows exactly how to read a crowd and play what they want to hear, which made my husband and I so happy because we wanted everyone to have a great time. Everyone said he was the best wedding DJ they have ever heard! There is so much more I could say but I will leave it with this, Mike you were absolutely amazing and we couldn't be more thankful for everything you did for us on our day. You made it special and really helped round out everything that we had hoped for our wedding. Thank you!

I used Michael Anthony Productions for my uplighting and Mike was AMAZING. First of all, Mike is the nicest guy! He met us at our venue at our convenience (even though it was an hour away from his house) so we could get the exact right shade of blush - he has a great eye, and...

I felt like Mike really understood with only one simple phone call exactly what I envisioned for my wedding! He played nice and classy jazz...

It was the perfect blend. We had our ceremony on the staircase which is part of a very large three story room and the ceremony music was perfect! I was nervous about this part as it seemed difficult to make the songs sound good in this type of room but everything sounded wonderful! Highly recommend Mike for your events!

He's excellent with his response time, he's great at staying in contact with you and keeping you updated. You can definitely tell he knows what he's doing, all of my guests... Read More had absolutely no complaints about him. Because my husband and I were very busy, we really didn't get time to pick our music. We let Dj mike do most of it, which I'm so happy that we didn't pick because he did such a wonderful job!! His music is not overly blasting like some Dj's. He's has such a great personality, our guest really enjoyed the music and the fact he was having fun with the wedding and making it entertaining.  Our venue's employees even said that he was a great Dj. Prior to guest arriving at the wedding, he started playing music and the employees have never seen a Dj do that before. Usually the Dj just starts playing music when the wedding starts. His lighting package was fantastic! Prior to our wedding he came to the venue and showed us all the colors that he could do for lighting in the room, and how he can change the lighting for what was going on in different parts of the wedding/ reception. I would definitely recommend DJ Mike for any occasion that you would need a DJ for! If my family or friends ever need a DJ, I'm definitely going to encourage them to use him. If I personally ever need a DJ again, he will be the person I contact again.
