You have to book with Mike. I love him he is like a part of the family now, he did my moms wedding and he also did mine. I can't even express how helpful, kind and accommodating Mike is. I knew that if i had questions or was nervous or confused about something I could call him or email him day or night and he would get back to me ASAP with the answers and calming words. Mike took so much time to sit with us and make sure we were going to get everything that we wanted on our big day and he really delivered! The night ran smoothly thanks to him and the dance floor never died because he can really read the room and know what people want and what they will enjoy hearing and dancing to! Book him...seriously you will not regret it. I am also saying this as a truly harsh reviewer of most things.
Let me start this review by saying Mike is excellent at what he does! We had such an incredible time at our wedding and loved every song Mike chose. We were on the dance floor from start to finish, which is exactly what we wanted! I booked Mike after an hour long phone call just discussing his DJ methods. A year later, we met with Mike and he was more knowledgeable than I could have imagined. He helped us with our timeline & organization, was willing to work with our hopes to have a fun & relaxed event versus your more traditional event, & really went above and beyond to make us feel like he had everything ready for our big day - and he most certainly did! I will continue to recommend Mike to family & friends!
Mike was the best! Everyone at our wedding had a great time and he kept the dance floor packed all night. He had great mixes of all of your favorite songs, was accommodating when we asked him to play some cultural songs and required little to no guidance. We gave him a general idea of what we wanted and told him to play what he thought would be best, and we were not disappointed. I would highly recommend Mike!
Mike came recommended to us from a couple of friends. After meeting with our first potential DJ, we were a bit discouraged. Then we met with Mike and he put our minds at ease. Mike is incredibly friendly, easygoing, and flexible. His confidence in his own abilities assured us that he was the DJ we wanted for our wedding. Leading up to the wedding, we gave Mike a list of songs that we wanted him to play. The rest, however, we left up to him and his professional expertise. This was probably one of the best decisions we made and I highly recommend you do the same if you go with Mike. Mike had the dance floor packed from the time the reception began to the end of it (minus dinner, speeches, parent dances, obviously). My 90-year old grandmother was even out on the dance floor!!! At the time of writing this review, we are a little over a week removed from the wedding and I am still receiving texts and emails from family, friends, and even our other vendors (!) commenting on what a fun party it was. I have to give all the credit in the world to Mike for setting the tone with the music and keeping the dance floor packed. I can't recommend Mike highly enough. 5-stars doesn't feel adequate enough to convey the job Mike did at our wedding. While I'm sure there are other great DJ's out there, Mike has to be the hands-down best! I will certainly be recommending him to all of our friends in the future!
Mike was our DJ for our October wedding in Alexandria, VA. If you want a party, Mike Blaufeld is your guy! He knows how to keep people on the dance floor without the cheesy antics of most wedding DJs. We had the perfect mix of classics with today's hits to keep people dancing until the last song. We also used his uplighting service which completely transformed the ballroom space into a beautiful romantic setting. Highly recommend him without any hesitation!
It was truly a pleasure working with Mike. We interviewed multiple DJs before we spoke with Mike and we immediately got a vibe from him that we really liked. In addition to liking his style as a DJ, we appreciated that he is willing to help with wedding planning as well. He gave us input on multiple iterations of our timeline and even offered to make it for us from scratch if we wanted. He’s also very organized and has a very helpful planning form that he helped us fill out. He gave us some great suggestions for our ceremony music and other key songs throughout the night since we didn’t really know where to start (first dance, cake cutting, etc). He was always very responsive to emails and was overall very easy to work with leading up to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, he delivered just as he had described in our first meeting. The ceremony music was very good and we received multiple compliments about it. When the dance floor opened, he started with some oldies to get the older guests involved and smoothly worked his way up to newer music. He had really good transitions between songs and there was a good rhythm going from one song to the next. We’ve been to weddings where the combination of songs feels random and it definitely makes the dance floor lose energy. That was never the case with Mike as he kept the dance floor packed all night and was able to keep multiple generations happy throughout. He was really good at reading the crowd, and my parents said they really appreciated that he played music that they enjoyed dancing to. My wife and I really appreciated that he adhered to our do not play list even though I know some of my friends were trying hard to get him to play one song from it. We also appreciated that he did all the necessary announcements, but never got on the mic just for the sake of talking. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our experience working with Mike. The main qualities we were looking for from our DJ was someone that was helpful with planning and that kept the dance floor crowded all night. He did an excellent job in both areas and we highly recommend him!
I was referred to Mike by a friend who had gotten married and there is no doubt why he's so highly rated. From our initial contact to our wedding day, Mike was very responsive and gave us great input. Not only did he guide us through our timeline, he was there to guide us through our wedding day (along with our planner) by giving us a quick heads up for each step throughout. The day really does go fast but he helped us cover everything that was important to us. He helped with song selections and helped me find the perfect version of the song I used for my (bridal) processional. We are a couple in our 40s with older, mostly married guests and he really tailored everything to us and our guests. He suggested we do an Anniversary Dance and days later we were still hearing how much guests enjoyed it. Our guests also mentioned how easy he was to approach and took requests. If you are looking for a dedicated DJ you can't go wrong with Mike.
Mike was an amazing DJ for our 3-31-17 wedding!!! We couldn't have asked for anyone better because he was the BEST! He kept in touch with us throughout the entire process and helped my nerves by having a full timeline ready and was willing to help as much as possible on the big day. If you want an incredible DJ, hire Mike - you will NOT regret it!!
Hands down the BEST wedding DJ in the DMV. Our wedding venue, the Kimpton Morrison House, recommended him since he is familiar with the space and is so experienced. DJ Mike is the best wedding DJ out there and definitely worth every penny! He is very professional and takes pride in his trade. He made a detailed timeline and basically ran the event. Because DJ mike was organized and professional, I did not need to hire a separate wedding planner/coordinator. I had a small wedding with 55 guests and initially had a fear that my reception would be boring or that people would not dance. EVERYBODY danced.. the whole night. Ermahgawd- It was so much fun! We decided to get the uplighting for the ceremony and reception- it was totally worth the cost. The ceremony uplighting was soft natural light that set a classy ambiance without the need for any other pricey decorations. The uplighting for the dinner was also soft and natural (candlelight). Then once it was time for dancing, the lighting changed and it was like a night club the rest of the evening. So many of my guests said they loved the DJ and had so much fun dancing! We definitely created some unforgettable memories thanks to DJ Mike!
Mike is fantastic. He was very responsive and easy to contact. He was in charge of the music at our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and he did everything so well. On the day of the wedding, I actually found Mike to be a calming influence in the middle of a lot of insanity, and I am so grateful to him for that. He played both what we requested and what was perfect to get folks up and dancing at the reception without resorting to any "cheesy" songs. He even made sure to walk around and find both me and my husband when a song that we really wanted to slow dance to at the reception was about to come on. That is still one of our favorite memories of the night, and we could have missed if Mike wasn't so attentive! We also contracted with him for uplighting, and his suggestion on lighting color gave the room the effect we were looking for. He's a great talented guy who loves (and is good at) what he does. Book him!
There's a reason DJ Mike has 5 stars--he is the best! I was looking for an independent DJ, I didn't want to go with a company and have someone randomly assigned to me. I knew from the first conversation that Mike was the perfect fit for the type of party I wanted. He was always responsive, and sat down with my fiance and I to plan out the timeline and go over the songs we wanted to hear. He did a great job of playing softer music for cocktail hour and dinner and then building up to dance music. There was never a moment where people were not dancing. He mixed in Unchained Melody, and it was so touching to see some of the older relatives dancing with their spouses like they were teenagers. Go with DJ Mike, you will not be disappointed!
My fiancé and I booked Mike as the D.J. for our wedding this past July 16th. From the minute that we met with him in the summer of 2015, we knew that we'd made the perfect choice. Throughout our wedding planning, Mike was consistently the most organized and responsive of all of my vendors. No stone was left unturned in our pre-wedding meetings and he helped us to remember to discuss every possible detail related to our ceremony music, the reception timeline, and the reception music. On the day of the wedding itself, Mike arrived and set up early, was ready to consult with our officiant and our readers, and was in the right place at the right time throughout the entire event. (It helped tremendously that he'd worked with our officiant and photographers before!) A microphone was seamlessly available whenever it was needed and he worked perfectly with my day-of coordinator to make sure that the events of the evening transitioned smoothly. Last but certainly not least, Mike completely understood what we and our guests wanted in terms of music. He paid attention to what got people on the floor and was respectful of our Please Play and our Please Don't Play list. His expertise ensured that the evening was a complete success and a party to remember. I can't recommend him enough!
Mike is a fantastic DJ! He is extremely organized and professional. The dance floor never had a dull moment. I felt confident that everything would go smoothly from his experience, and it did. Highly recommend!
Mike was outstanding. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had Mike at our wedding. We are pretty simple people and didn't want to over splurge on anything, but we knew that the the DJ can seriously make or break a wedding. After reading previous reviews and meeting with mike we felt confident in hiring him. We didn't know just how awesome he would make our wedding day. We have received countless comments on how awesome the day was with a great tribute to the DJ. Most of the night, literally everybody (4 years old to 85) were dancing on the floor. It was incredible. Not only did he help by being an incredible DJ, but he also helped to coordinate our day, came to a venue appointment with us to check out the space (which we felt was above and beyond anything we expected), and gave us great advice throughout planning. Thank you, Mike! You will forever hold a place in our hearts!
DJ Mike was worth every penny! We wanted a DJ that knows what they are doing and can read a crowd appropriately. He promised us he would keep the dance floor packed and he delivered! (We had a 5 hour reception and at no point was the dance floor empty). DJ Mike is very professional and really knows what he is doing. He kept the timeline of our reception in perfect check. The up lighting he provided at our venue and his sound system were great! Throughout all of our interactions with Mike he left us with no worries at all about what he would provide and that it would be great. He will take you through the entire reception timeline and make sure he understands what you want and how it should flow. He knows weddings well and can provide advice when you need it. We highly recommend Mike if you want to pick a DJ and not have to worry about what you will get!
Mike was the glue that held our wedding together all night long! Mike was the best choice for us - he was so organized, super friendly, and on top of everything. I met with him several times and he was in constant communication with me regarding the wedding. The night of, Mike did not only act as our DJ, he helped us with any issues we had with our venue, the staff, and the timeline. He checked in with us several times throughout the night. We felt very well taken care of. Furthermore, Mike's music mix was perfection! He played all of the songs I had requested and added in many, many more that fit with our "vision!" I have never seen a wedding where every single guest was on the dance floor the entire evening. His professionalism, positive energy, and enthusiasm was the perfect choice for our wedding!
Mike was the best DJ we could ask for. We met a few times and he was very accommodating since we lived in another state. He was very diligent to make sure he had all the detailed information he needed for our wedding. He is very friendly and great to work with. The music at the reception was perfect the whole night. The music choices were on par and the noise level was perfect-not too loud that no one could talk or hear what others were saying. I had quite a few guests say that ours was the only wedding where the dance floor was crowded the entire time.
We were recommended DJ Mike's services through a friend who had recently gotten married herself. It was the perfect selection. The first thing Mike promised was that his skills at sound looping and feeling the crowd's energy would ensure that he kept the party going the entire evening. And he wasn't wrong - our guests could not stop talking about the show/party Mike put on! People never stopped dancing as Mike churned out and connected hit after hit. Even the biggest sticks-in-the-mud were on their feet bustin' a move. A close friend who only sort-of likes to dance would comment, "OK, I'll take a break after this song is over." And then the next song would start and my friend would be jumping up and down yelling, "THIS SONG IS AWESOME!!!!" In short DJ Mike knows how to keep a crowd going. On top of that, Mike is just a super personable guy who respected every single song request we had while suggesting great numbers for any other moments we needed, including cake cutting and dinner music. He's extremely organized and worked well with our wedding planner, Susan Smith. He's responsive on email and phone and was willing to travel to see our venue. In short, Mike's value and pricing cannot be beat. He is worth every penny. Could not recommend him more - YOU MUST HIRE DJ MIKE.
Mike's reviews here are all true. He was awesome, very attentive and truly seemed to care about our wedding. When we first met with Mike, he told us he did this for a living and promised if we went with him he would make it a night to remember. He far surpassed our expectations. It was a killer dance party, Mike read the crowd perfectly. He checked on us several times throughout the day, but was never annoying about it. He handled last minute changes and minor incidents like a pro. I actually felt bad I wasn't able to high five him before my bride and I ran off to our limo. If you hire Mike as your DJ you will not be disappointed. I'm sad the party is over!
Absolutely Perfect!Reviewed on 10/29/2015 Rachael L
Mike was awesome and really fun to work with. My fiance and I met with him twice before the wedding and I spoke to him on the phone several times. He had great ideas and suggestions and actually seemed to enjoy the planning process as much as I did. He put together a timeline for us for the wedding day and then basically ran the show. I didn't have to worry for a second about the flow of events on the day of the wedding. He played great music that was fun to dance to and appropriate for the event. At the end of the wedding I was actually kind of sad to say good bye because he had been so great throughout the entire experience! I cannot say enough good things about Mike and his services and would highly highly HIGHLY recommend him!!!
We love DJ MikeReviewed on 10/22/2015
Mike was so great to work with. Professional, prompt, engaging, and FUN (which was so important to us!) Mike did the music for our ceremony and reception as well as provided up-lighting. We provided all of our songs in advance and Mike was able to capture every song we requested. He was extremely responsive via email and phone and was willing to meet in person whenever we requested. During our wedding he kept the dance floor packed all night. He was able to transition songs without stopping which, in our opinion, kept people on the dance floor longer since there were no awkward pauses. Everyone at our reception commented on what a great DJ we booked, and we have to agree. As for the uplighting, the room looked amazing. Thanks for everything DJ Mike!!
DJ Mike BlaufeldReviewed on 8/27/2015
Mike was the DJ for our daughter's wedding on 22 Aug 2015. We have nothing but superlatives to say about Mike Blaufeld. Mike was professional, organized, prepared and a pleasure to work with. He accommodated our music requests up to the last minute. The wedding was a great party in large thanks to Mike's selection of music. Although we gave him the types of music we liked, he was able to expertly read the crowd and adapt to their likes. We didn't need tables or chairs, because everyone was on the dance floor all night. If anything, we needed a larger dance floor, all thanks to Mike and his expert selection of music. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a DJ. Parents of the Bride.
DJ - Wedding 08/01/15Reviewed on 8/16/2015
We contracted with Mike Blaufeld for our daughter's wedding several months before the wedding date. Mike was the most professional vendor we contracted for the wedding reception. We chose Mike because he is an independent DJ, and he was on the preferred vendor list for our wedding reception venue. Mike answered many questions we had during our phone interview. He responds quickly to email. The bride and groom met with Mike a couple of times before the wedding and they had very favorable reviews after meeting with him. Our day-of coordinator the day of the wedding raved about Mike and how easy he is to work with. We highly recommend Mike Blaufeld as a DJ for a wedding or any event. 5 Stars + !!
Wedding DJReviewed on 7/20/2015
We were struck when we first were looking for a DJ by how many positive reviews Mike has on so many wedding websites. Those reviews are well deserved! Mike is such a professional. When you talk to him, he clearly takes so much pride in his work. We are convinced that nobody will work harder to make your wedding special and FUN. One thing that Mike prides himself on is being able to "read the room" when it's time to dance. While we did have specific songs we wanted for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and first dance, we completely trusted him to choose the music to get our guests out on the dance floor and keep them there. He absolutely delivered. Guests who were usually reluctant to dance at all ended up dancing the entire night. Our advice is that if you hire Mike (which you definitely should), trust him to know what music to play when it is time to dance. You will not be disappointed.
Fantastic DJ, Easy to Work with!!Reviewed on 6/08/2015 Jessica B
I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed working with Mike. From the first time we spoke at my consultation call he made me feel at ease and that using him for our wedding was the right choice. He was very personable yet professional. He is so responsive and answered any and all of my questions within hours of me firing off an email. He went above and beyond by helping me with my wedding day timeline. Most importantly he did a great job at our wedding! I had guests telling me that they loved his music selection and by the amount of people on the dance floor, knew they were enjoying themselves. If you are looking for a DJ who will go above and beyond for you Mike is your guy!

I LOVE what I do! I began my DJ company in the 90's training and promoting a number of other DJ's that have become very successful and well known in Washington, MD & VA for their unique styles. Back than it was clubs/bars and now 100% weddings. I love to listen to any type of music old or new. In my spare time I like to try new restaurants and always love catching a good movie. I am very easy going and really like it when I develop a special bond/friendship with my clients. I have a ton of experience and I am especially fond of Djing weddings.
