I cannot express how unbelievably happy my husband and I are that we decided to go with Mike for our DJ for the big day! Mike met with us multiple times before the wedding and was so easy to contact with any questions. Mike is so fun to work with, but also is professional, he is... Read More so experienced and made the whole process easy and stress free from start to finish. Even though he has done thousands of weddings he made ours individualized not cookie cutter and he really made us feel like we were important not just "another wedding". The wedding day itself was the best day of my life and without Mike I am positive it would not have been as amazing as it was. Mike checked in with me before the ceremony to see how I was doing and to make sure I didn't have any questions. During the ceremony the sound quality of the music was perfect and, unlike other outside weddings I have been to, people could actually hear what we were saying with the microphones Mike equipped us with. Even though I was not present for cocktail hour all my guests raved at how amazing the music was! Mike was prepared and got everyone in line for reception introductions, he knew everyone's name and just has the most amazing personality and got all the guests up and cheering. Mike was on top of everything, the lighting he used in the barn was unbelievable and really was that special touch that made everything look perfect. Now my wedding was on a Sunday night before Columbus day, and Mike had people up and partying in between servings for dinner! Mike was able to do everything we asked and more. He was so much fun, the music during the reception was perfect and even now weeks later I still have guests coming to me saying the music was the best they ever heard at a wedding and it was one of the best weddings they ever been to. Mike really listened to us and what we wanted. I honestly cannot say enough about Mike, out of all the vendors I went with for the wedding Mike was by far my most valued and best decision I made for my wedding. Mike not only was professional and an amazing DJ but he really cared and he felt more like a good friend, which is really important. If you want to have the best night of your life, if you want to have peace of mind that everything DJ related (which is really a gigantic part of the wedding) will go without a hitch, if you want your guest to have a great time, and if you want your wedding to be one that you can only dream of then go with Michael Simonetta. He made my wedding so perfect and I wish there was a 10 star rating because he goes even beyond that.

The best decision we've made was getting married. Our second best decision? Choosing Michael as our DJ! From the moment we had our initial phone conversation to our in-person meeting he made us feel like family. He was attentive, engaging, and very accommodating to each and... Read More every one of our needs. Michael sat with us for hours to go over all the fine details of our music selection as well as getting to know us personally as a couple. We felt completely assured that we were in good hands as we could tell that he has a deep passion for music and drive to deliver only the best. We decided to go with the full package including the photo booth and the uplighting and it was worth every penny. When the day finally arrived everything was coordinated to a tee. From the introductions to the first dances, to the music and the uplighting, everything was arranged perfectly. And it was no surprise that the dance floor was packed the entire night. From the young to the old, everyone was having the time of their lives. We still have numerous guests inquiring to know who our DJ was because now THEY all want to book a date with Michael. Our expectations were far exceeded and then some. Thank you Michael for making our wedding day unforgettable!

One of the most important decisions was our DJ, and Mike was spectacular. From the our first meeting with him to our wedding day, we could not have asked for a better DJ. Mike spent so much time ensuring the flow of the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were perfect. He was... Read More extremely attentive and interactive with the crowd throughout the evening and if a song didn't fit he made sure he found the perfect place for it. Our dance floor was packed all night long, it was a blast. We couldn't be happier with our selection, we would hire Mike all over again and highly recommend him for your wedding.

Michael did an absolutely fantastic job DJ’ing our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with from even the interview stage. When we were speaking to DJs, we knew that there were certain traditions that we did not want to happen during our wedding and Michael was the only DJ to... Read More recognize that we had vision for our wedding and wanted to make sure everything from his end went off without a hitch. About 2 weeks before the wedding, Michael scheduled a call with us to make sure that we communicated all of the touch points and songs we wanted to hear. He did such a great job taking what we talked about and extrapolating to have the perfect soundtrack for our wedding. Throughout the whole night, neither of us can remember hearing a song we did not like. Almost every single one of our guests commented during and after the wedding how great of a job Michael did with the music. The venue for our ceremony and reception were not wired for sound (the ceremony was outside) and Michael had the equipment and knowledge to set everything up so all of our guests were able to hear us during the ceremony and thoroughly enjoy all of the music during the reception. Additionally, we had Michael’s team do the photo booth for our guests to enjoy. The photo booth was a great addition and at the end we got a book of all our guest’s photos as well a digital copy of all the pictures. In short, my husband and I cannot recommend Michael highly enough as a DJ. He provided exactly what we asked for and made it a truly awesome evening.

Michael was extremely professional in all of our interactions-excellent communication, well-prepared, and punctual. It was clear that he is passionate about what he does and committed to ensuring that he captures the vision of the bride and groom. He played all of our songs and... Read More stayed away from our "do not play list", but also had great questions and suggestions about details we hadn't considered. We got married at the Carousel at Lighthouse Point Park with a ceremony on the beach-with no built-in AV system and limited outlets it had some unique challenges but Michael was well-prepared to ensure that our guests could hear us and the music throughout the night. Michael also provided lighting for our reception. They are LED lights that can be adjusted to any hue you'd like and changed instantly throughout the night. It really enhanced the look of the venue. Michael was truly a pleasure to work with and he charges very reasonable fees.

Our guests have been raving about the music selection since our wedding, the dance floor was packed all night... even friends and family who weren’t big dancers were out on the dance floor! We also got our photo booth through Mike and there was always a line to go in the photo booth, he has a great selection of props & the album we were given at the end of the night was such a great keepsake to look through to see how much everyone had fun! If you’re in the market for a top of the line wedding DJ, Mike is the best of the best!

Very responsive. Amazing party. Great price. HIGHLY recommended. We were incredibly happy with Michael for our wedding, because he is so much more than a DJ. He really lives up to his advertisement for “event services”. From our first meeting over the phone with Michael, we... Read More were impressed with how engaging and friendly he was. He gave us helpful tips early on in selecting a personalized song list, and he spent plenty of time the month before the wedding in making sure every important detail of the big day was just right. If we had any questions, he would always answer very quickly. He was proactive and took a lead role in helping to coordinate the other vendors at our wedding, and made sure that everything flowed smoothly. And he really showed off his DJ skills at our reception by turning into it an exciting, unforgettable party. We never got off the dance floor. The best part was his price, which was unbeatable, given how much work he did for our wedding. We would totally recommend him to anyone getting married.

Michael was the most amazing DJ we could have hoped for. He was more than just a DJ he was a true professional from the first time we spoke to him through the entire ceremony.

He went above and beyond what we were expecting from him. My wife and I were not the best at selecting every song we wanted to hear throughout every portion of the evening.

His uplighting that we used was so perfect, he found how to match our color scheme!!! On our wedding day he was such a great asset for keeping my wife and myself on track for timing of events.
