I highly recommend Mike Staff Productions! Made our lives so easy :) We got our DJ (DJ Mike), Videographer (Gigi) and Photographers (Diego/Donna) from Mike Staff and all were amazing. Tim took time with us to watch different videos to make sure we picked the entertainment best suited for us. From there they pretty much organized everything! We had touch bases here and there with each of our entertainers but for the most part they pretty much knew what to do! DJ Mike was fantastic! We were really nervous about the music because we feel that the DJ definitely makes or breaks the party. DJ Mike exceeded our expectations. He made sure to mix it up to appeal to different parts of our party and made sure to get everyone on the dance floor. Diego and Donna definitely had a vision for pictures and they turned out great. They really listened to what we wanted and had great energy and professionalism the entire night. The pictures turned out great. And Gigi was just a ball of energy! I felt like she was everywhere!! I'm so happy how everything turned out and I'd highly recommend Mike Staff to help make wedding planning stress free :)
THE BEST DJ SERVICE OUT THERE! Before officially booking with Mike Staff I went out to have a sit down meet and greet for more information. Out of all the other vendors I had spoken to at that point, Mike Staff was BEYOND the most professional and had the BEST customer service. From the beginning they were so enthusiastic and caring about the vision I had for my wedding. I had personally seen the year before at two separate weddings where a DJ was rude and disrespectful to the bride and guests, and wouldn't play the music requested. You would never come across this booking with this DJ Service, I have already recommended them to my friends who will be using them later this year for their wedding. From the moment I walked up to the reception hall DJ DAN was ready to go and was able to help direct not just me but my wedding party for their entrance. DJ DAN was my life line throughout the reception, he checked in with me for everything and knew how to read the crowd so well. My worst fear was that No ONE would dance at my wedding, and that was not the case with DJ DAN. Please book Mike Staff Productions today!
Great DJ!Reviewed on 10/14/2015 Ashleigh B
The only job I gave my fiancé was to book the DJ. He decided to book at the first meeting, without talking to anyone else. Needless to say I was a little concerned. I shouldn't have been! DJ Phil was fantastic! He was easy to reach and quick to answer questions, even up until the morning of the wedding. At the reception, he kept everyone dancing all night long! We were so surprised at some of our guests that stayed until the end and danced, all thanks to Phil's ability to read the crowd and keep people up and having fun. I really appreciated that Phil sought me out at one point to ask if someone's request could be played since it was very similar to a song on our "do not play list". Phil made our wedding exactly what we wanted...a really fun night that we will remember forever!
DJ Company that gives back to communityReviewed on 7/30/2015 Amy J
Mike Staff productions is a great company that not only provides exceptional services, but also gives 10% back to the community. It is unlike any other company that gives and puts customers first. Our DJ did a great job and there was a mixup with some songs but Mike's Staff make it right with us, and that made us love them even more. I highly recommend them!
John and James were absolutely AMAZING! They really captured every moment and made the process memorable. I loved the time each of them took to make sure everything looked perfect. They both were very professional and absolutely hilarious. My husband and I had a blast with these two guys. Highly recommend! Thank you both so much!
We would definitely recommend using Mike Staff as a DJ for a wedding. We had DJ Kyle and he made our night a night to remember. Many guests gave us compliments and he kept the dance floor FULL all night long. We did not give him a lot of songs to play and let him work his magic. And that is exactly what he did. Thanks Kyle!
Mike Staff Productions is run top notch. They were an amazing vendor to work with. It all started with Randy giving us all the information we needed and always being able to communicate. We had Al as our DJ and he was awesome! He called us about a week before our wedding, where we chatted for about an hour about our ideas and expectations. He was very helpful when we weren't sure on some ideas. He even gave us some opinions due to his experiences at the weddings he's done which was super nice in decision making. After dinner, my now husband and I escaped for some sunset pictures on the beach. During that time he played Moana and Frozen and the kids were LOVING it, therefor their parents loved it too! But really, who doesn't love some Disney music in their life? He had a wide range of music selections. He listened to us when we said we wanted a few requests for my husbands grandpa. He even played songs that I didn't even know I wanted but loved (Whitney Houston)! We had a wide range of music tastes in attendance and at some point the majority made their way to the dance floor. Again, Al was AMAZING and it was hands down great experience using Mike Staff for our DJ needs. I would use them over and over again!
I don't know what I can say about Mike Staff Productions that hasn't already been said, but I just had to write a review anyway because my experience with them was so beyond phenomenal. For starters, I called and was able to book my wedding date and put down a deposit in <5 minutes-- the best thing in the world for a bride with a busy schedule who is planning a wedding on 3 months' notice! Their communication was proactive and responsive throughout the process, and any questions I had were answered immediately. Their online payment system was so easy and painless, and their thorough planning documents made it simple to put together a musical vision for our ceremony and reception. When we spoke to our (insanely wonderful) DJ Richard the week before the wedding, I was instantly put at ease. He was warm, funny, and charming, and I just knew he'd be a hit with our guests; besides that, he spent over an hour on the phone with me going over all the details, making sure he was pronouncing names correctly, and helping me organize the flow of our reception. He also responded quickly and graciously when I emailed him some last-minute changes in the days prior to the wedding. On our wedding day, Richard arrived super early to set up, and from the start of the ceremony to the last song of the night, he didn't miss a single beat. He nailed every cue, knew exactly how to maintain the flow of events, kept the dance floor going all night, was an absolute pleasure to work with, and even kindly checked in with me once or twice when he thought I might not like a song request. He ended the night by digging up an obscure Ingrid Michaelson song that I requested at the last minute for our final dance, and helped us end the night on a beautiful note. We are SO glad we chose to work with Mike Staff Productions, and feel so lucky that we got to work with Richard. Thank you for absolutely perfect service from start to finish!
Pat G. was our DJ. He really hit it out of the park. I was very pleasantly surprised. Very professional and came through for us.
AMAZING! That is all there is to say about Mike Staff Productions. We had DJ Marty for our wedding reception, and it was hands-down, the BEST wedding reception I've ever been too (ok, maybe I'm a little biased..). DJ Marty was SO calm leading up to our and during our big day. You know how sometimes you have people that make you think you need to overcomplicate everything about you're wedding? "We just had three interviews with different DJs!" "We just met with our DJ for the third time." Not for me, and definitely not the type of drama/stress you'll find when hiring Mike Staff Production. I was a long-distance bride, planning my wedding in MI from WI. Mike Staff and DJ Marty handled all of my questions promptly and with so much positive energy. We didn't give DJ Marty too many constraints for a playlist - at that point, I was done making decisions, and just wanted to party! He. Was. FABULOUS. He pronounced all of our bridal party's names correctly, he pumped all of us up for our grand entrances, speeches, and dances. And most importantly, he kept the party going! We had a 4.5 hour dance party where literally, no one left the dance floor. At the end of our reception DJ Marty came up to my husband and I and said, "I've never been asked to have a 4.5 hour dance party where the energy never died and no one ever left the dance floor - this was awesome!" There were two components of my wedding that were most important to me: pictures and the party - needless to say, DJ Marty and Mike Staff Productions made sure my wishes came true for the party. I cannot say enough good things about them! If you're thinking of booking them, STOP THINKING AND DO IT! Thanks again Mike Staff and DJ Marty!!
I had the pleasure of having Randy from Mike Staff Productions as the DJ for my wedding. I was thoroughly impressed by him and my guests were as well! I heard from many people at the wedding how wonderful the DJ was as he played things that everyone liked. As a result, the dance floor was full of people all night! I would definitely recommend Randy to anyone who wants a great DJ!
We had DJ Develin for our ceremony and reception music. He kept everyone dancing! The music flow was great and he was very receptive and responsive to our requests and our keeping the guests engaged!
DJ Dave was fantastic. He was organized, attentive, energetic and kept the music going. My guests all loved him. My husband and I were more than pleased. I highly recommend DJ Dave and Mike Staff Production.
My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of having Jon and Rex from Mike Staff or our DJ and Videography services! They were both absolutely incredible and just so great and easy to work with. With Jon, he was seriously the best DJ we've ever heard at a wedding (and not just being bias because it was ours). As you know, the music was super, super important to us because that's what really helps set the tone for the wedding and even-more so because we had so many genres we wanted to incorporate in to the wedding. Jon not only incorporated every single song we recommended and genre we wanted, but literally kept everyone on the dance floor the entire time! Out of 4 hours of dancing - we think we only left the dance floor for a TOTAL of like 15 minutes. It was incredible and we could not have asked for a better DJ. He was super awesome! We really feel like we got two of the best guys within their respective fields. We are recommending Mike Staff and these two guys in particular to anyone we speak to that's getting married or having a big event! 5 Stars from Katie and Mike!
I can't say enough great things about Mike Staff productions. We used their DJ services for our August wedding, and DJ Erik was absolutely incredible. He kept our guests dancing all night, handled all of the entrances and announcements well, and made sure to communicate clearly with me in the weeks leading up to the wedding. He made the night exactly the way we wanted it, 100% worth the cost.
We had DJ Dwight. There were no major mess-ups, but it could have been a little better. A few minor hiccups (a few awkward silent gaps in music during the reception, forgot garter toss at first and had to be reminded, missed my dad's welcome speech "fan fare" clip, song transitions and 'crowd reading' could use a little improvement) but the ceremony music, entrance and first dance went smoothly. He's a chill guy with a smooth voice and other than the above hiccups took directions well. Tim is great to work with.
I could not be happier with all three services that Mike Staff provided for us on our wedding day! They were great with keeping in touch, answering all of our questions, provided great suggestions, and helped everything go smoothly! We are so happy with how our pictures and video turned it, and our DJ did an amazing job! We highly recommend using Mike Staff!
DJ Randy was SO great! He helped me plan through some small details before the wedding and most importantly he had EVERYONE up and dancing at some point. He was also very fun and kept the party going. Thank you so much!!
If there was one decision that made our lives easy on our wedding day it was hiring Mike staff. We worked with amazing professionals, everybody made our day fun and easy, our DJ (Randy Parker) did a wonderful job and so did our main photographer (Craig Irvine), Craig went above and beyond do get some cool shots which we can't wait to see and Randy had everybody dancing all night. We highly recommend Mike Staff.
Our DJ Joe was a professional. When we first talked I was freaking out some and needed calming down and he did a great job! At the ceremony and reception everything went just as we had discussed! Joe was a huge part of surprising my parents for their 30th wedding anniversary and was able to find some of our less popular but must play songs for our special dances! We had a great night and Joe was a huge part of that!
We used Mike Staff for our wedding and would definitely recommend them. DJ Dave was awesome and played all the music we wanted and kept the party going all night. We had so many people come up to us telling us he was the best DJ they have seen at weddings. So much fun
We bundled DJ, Photography, and Videography using Mike Staff Productions and are so thrilled with our experience! We used Ca'Re Settles as our main photographer, and Ashli Cathey was our second shooter. Ca'Re stayed with me and the girls while we were getting ready and for pre-ceremony photos, including my first look with my dad. Ashli spent the hours before the ceremony with my husband and his groomsmen. Both Ca'Re and Ashli were extremely enthusiastic and engaged with us and our guests throughout the entire wedding day! They even got on the dance floor a few times to celebrate with us! Kyle Zagata was our amazing DJ. From the second he opened up the dance floor to the end of the reception, there were people up and dancing the entire time. He did a great job of reading the vibe of the reception and choosing songs to keep it moving along, and catering to all ages and genres of music. Kyle was very friendly and chatty with our guests, which made it feel like he was a part of our wedding, not just working at it! We only had the videographer for 3 hours, so we did not get to talk to him very much, but our guests told us that he did a great job capturing the cocktail hour while we were off taking pictures on the golf course. We can't wait to see all of the footage that he took that day! The editing team for the videography got back to us very quickly about choosing songs for each part of our footage, and their response to our questions was very quick. We received a sneak peek of our photos (15 photos) thirteen days after the wedding, and we are already in love! We get the rest of our photos on the one month anniversary of our wedding (August 22), and we cannot wait! I cannot rave enough about our positive experience with Mike Staff and the convenience of bundling all services together so that each staff member already knew each other, worked well together, and my husband and I had nothing to worry about the entire wedding day because we trusted them!
Just awesome. Working with Mike Staff is very easy - we loved that they sent us videos of the different DJs who were available for our date so that we could a get a sense of who would match our style and vibe the best. DJ Josh Baker was fantastic. We had a phone conversation the week before to go over the detailed planning form that Mike Staff provided, and after that we knew were in excellent hands. On our wedding day, Josh helped with a bit of the coordination and schedule/timing behind the scenes, which we appreciated, and once the dance floor opened it never really emptied! From a music standpoint, he did a great job of listening to us and our tastes, but also reading the room and knowing what people liked. He was mixing music on the fly, and when he saw that a song didn't have quite the impact he was hoping for, he seamlessly transitioned into another one. He graciously played a few minutes extra for us at the end of the night, and we had many guests raving about what a fun dance floor he created. Thank you DJ Josh Baker!
We could not be more pleased with Mike Staff Productions. Our Photographer (Mark and Mike), Videographer (Nick) and DJ (Bob) were all from the Mike Staff team. All 4 gentleman exceeded every expectation we had. Their work is incredible, they guided us through every step of the way and helped make our day seamless. Going with Mike Staff is a no brainer for all of your wedding needs. You will not be disappointed.
My fiance and I knew the importance of a great DJ. They set the tone of the wedding. We couldn't have been happier! We had DJ Develin. He worked with me to customize my father daughter dance and entrance songs. He was great at reading the room and keeping people on the dance floor. Our dance floor was never empty. He was so professional and fun. We highly recommend DJ Dev.
