Oh boy, where do I start. There’s not enough words to explain how helpful, affordable, and amazing Mike Bacon is. My husband and I got married at a summer camp for kids and we were having our reception, cocktail hour, introductions, dinner, and...
dancing all in different spaces. We had 230 people and Mike had all of the necessary equipment to make the day runs smoothly, with no glitches at all and he never once skipped a beat. On top of being technically advanced and bringing the highest level of performance equipment, Mike bacon does an amazing job at keeping the day running according to schedule, without stress or anxiety put on to the bride and groom. Mike made game day suggestions as to how we could do things in a more organized way and worked with us as a team. Make Bacon does not make any part of your wedding day about him, his agenda, or his music preferences. He tailored our wedding to us and played all of the endless music suggestions we had made.
For those of you brides and grooms who are looking for a DJ to play music and to help the day runs smoothly, I strongly suggest you reach out to Mike bacon. It is the second best decision I made on my wedding date (the first was to marry the love of my life).
I’m honored that we had Mike Bacon as our wedding DJ, and now friend. I know my wedding guests will be talking about him for years to come.

Mike DJ’d our wedding at Stonehurst Manor in September and so many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and a lot of that has to do with the atmosphere Mike created! We didn’t give him too much direction and told him to ...
feel the crowd and he crushed it!!! The dance floor had people on it for the entire time and he played music that catered to every generation in attendance without much guidance before hand. He even had the bartenders dancing while making drinks! He took our wedding up a notch and it was worth every penny! He is prompt, professional, and knows how to have a good time! Mike guided us through preparing for the wedding and made us feel so comfortable while planning a big party! I would hands down recommend Mike to anyone looking for a DJ who is sure to make it a memorable wedding!

ut since we were planning from afar we had no frame of reference for local DJs. We took a (well-researched and well-supported) chance on Mike and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made!
We were on the same page from our first conversation when we all agreed that wedding receptions are too short to play old, cliche tunes. This was reinforced with our incredibly helpful pre-wedding conversation where we laid out the entire evening set to music. He got excited about the songs we had planned, offered up solutions to our questions and conundrums, and incorporated unique requests and other tasks with ease. It was such a relief to know I could enjoy the entire evening with Mike at the helm. He knew exactly what to play and when to keep people excited and dancing. I have received countless compliments from friends and relatives, some of whom never get on the dance floor--except for at my wedding.
Besides music, Mike also has a great grasp on the big picture of the night and was totally prepared to coordinate and orchestrate reception events. If our reception vendor wasn't already completely on top of it, Mike would absolutely have picked up the slack. But he was happy to step back and focus on the music, I'm sure along with plenty of tiny actions to keep things running smoothly while we got to focus on each other.
If you're willing to give up creative control to someone who knows what he's doing, and if you're ready to be completely immersed in the joy and excitement of your wedding, Mike is absolutely your guy.

For the music, we had so much fun! Mike took suggestions from us on what songs we would like to hear and then built our night off of it. All of our friends and a lot of our family killed it on the dance floor. He also rolls with the punches. I remember looking up in the middle of dancing and saw my niece (the flower girl) up at the DJ station "helping him out". Too cute and a good sport.
I even have received compliments from guests on how great he was. I would (and will) 100% recommend him to anyone who asks.

I've had so many people come up to me to tell how awesome Mike was.

Mike perfectly hid the lapel mic on my husband's suit jacket so it didn't appear in photos--no unsightly boom stand in the way. 2) He checks in with you on how things are going. And he is always positive. 3) He makes it work. We had additionally ceremony music that had a different audio set up, and he came early to ensure they could coordinate and practice the hand offs. Oh, and when we asked if he could speed our first dance song up by 5%--no problem. 4) He spent 90 minutes chatting with me and my then fiance on the music for the wedding--he gave great advice, lessons learned from prior weddings, and options for us to consider. He is an expert, and has great music taste too!
I actually met DJ Mike when he was the DJ for my best friend's wedding two years earlier, in which I was the maid of honor. At that time, he gave me great advice on how to give a good speech, and he gave both me and the best man a pep talk right before the moment.

As someone who has planned events professionally, I really appreciate and was surprised by Mike's event management strengths. He did more than play music for our ceremony and reception, which he did perfectly by the way. Mike worked with us to craft the perfect music for the ceremony from the seating of the parents to the recessional.
Mike helped us to craft our full itinerary from pre-ceremony photos to the end of the evening.
Most noteworthy to me is how Mike kept us on time. He was always discreetly keeping my wife and I aware of timelines and what was to happen next.
I believe Mike genuinely wanted us to have the best day of our lives. He grabbed drinks for our wedding party at one point. He saw a great photo opportunity with the clouds outside and advised us to get a shot with the photographer. He was fun and funny and kept our wedding party tied together.

very straightforward and simple. We had one sit-down with him via Skype and went over all of our typical wedding details - the music and things special to our day that he wanted to make happen for us. He not only organized all of this, but he also gave us helpful feedback and brought up things we hadn't even thought to ask! We also had the added challenge of mixing two different cultures for our wedding. We wanted to find a way to mix Turkish music and traditions with American ones. And to do so in a way that didn't seem forced and kept the liveliness and fun going throughout the night. He handled the transitions between both cultures that night seamlessly. He even found a way to play some metal music for me because I'd mentioned to him that I'm a big fan. On the actual day, he did more coordinating than our wedding coordinator! He ran around putting out small fires and calming everybody down and making them smile. Our matron of honor and best man both commented how unbelievably nervous they were to give their toasts. He talked them both through the timing and the way it should be done, and let them be just focused on the fun part of it. Many of our guests from both sides came up and commented on how amazing he was. We had a slightly longer wedding than most and didn't expect everybody to stay until the very end. But he made our wedding so much fun that many people stayed up until the very last minute dancing! And as for us, the bride and groom, he helped the caterer give us some time to sit and eat. He also grabbed us after the ceremony, brought us to a separate room, and let us have some private time together. That was one of our favorite parts of the wedding and we will always be thankful for that. Thank you, Mike!

Mike was also very accommodating with working in our venue. It was not an easy venue to work in given how much he had to move around his sound system, but Mike did a wonderful job with it all. He had to move the sound system among 4 different locations -- the ceremony site, the cocktail hour location, the dinner location, and the dance floor -- throughout the venue, but he did it with such great energy and efficiency.
Mike also "saved the day" when he found the bride's misplaced reception dress. Our whole wedding party spent about 20 minutes after the ceremony looking for it, but then as soon as we told Mike about the dilemma, he came back to us with it within 5 minutes! We could not have found that dress without his help.

ing planning process, as the flow of good music can make or break the mood of the night. We didn't want people sitting around at their tables all night, but we also didn't want our wedding reception to turn into a nightclub after dinner. Let's just say, we had loads of questions for Mike at that first meeting! He patiently answered all of our questions and within a few minutes we knew that he understood the vibe that we wanted at our reception. Mike gave so many great song suggestions while focusing on transition songs as well. After leaving our first meeting with Mike, we trusted that he would do an amazing job. We were right! On the second meeting, we gave Mike a few songs we liked, he gladly edited one and downloaded several more upon request. Mikes sets you up with page dedicated to your wedding music. The database of songs he has is HUGE and I loved being able to input the special songs myself.
We also hired a videographer through Mike. We recently went to a friend's wedding and the videographer blocked the view of many guests! So, again, we were very nervous about finding the 'right guy.' Our videographer was amazing- we can't wait to see the footage. He was like a ninja!! I don't recall even seeing him (although I know he was there) until our pictures before the reception. The great thing about Mike's videography service is that he'll stay right until the end of the night, ensuring that no special moment will be missed.
Mikes responsiveness, professionalism, and friendly personality eased our stress so that we were able to enjoy ourselves on our wedding day. Thanks a million, Mike!!

ing for, the excitement you and your future spouse (as well as your family and friends) feel and the expertise to know the kind of music your guests are enjoying can be overwhelming. I have to honestly say that myself and my husband felt so taken care of by Mike from the very beginning. His professionalism mixed with his people skills and clear love for being able to engage with and entertain people was truly amazing. Simply put, he's fantastic at what he does. I initially met Mike at a wedding event at our venue (White Cliffs Country Club) and knew right away that I wanted not only his company to be the DJ entertainment for our wedding, but that I wanted him to be the DJ for the night. We booked him that day and moved forward with the process in selecting songs through his online website, which was fantastic! We had access to it leading up to our wedding, which we really enjoyed. When new songs came out that we loved we knew we would add them to the "must play" list. My husband and I met with Mike at his office a month before our wedding to go over every detail from start to finish. I'm sure most meetings last an hour, maybe a bit longer - but he was with us for three hours! Not only did we appreciate the time he spent with us, the care that he put into detailing out our night with song selections and recommendations, but we appreciated how he spoke to us, as if we were friends chatting about planning the best night of our lives with family and friends. He was so excited to be apart of our night and it showed how much he cares for the work he does, the quality he produces, but also the people and families he is working with. Mike was able to answer any and all questions we had for him about the order of the ceremony and music associated, the introductions, the order of dances at the reception and so much more. Having Mike be able to celebrate with us while providing the entertainment for the night was perfect. He kept all of our wedding guests engaged during all points of the night, there was never a lull in the night or on the dance floor and he was able to read the crowd and respond to their requests for music played just by watching them! My husband and myself have received so many kind words about our entire night and specifically about Mike and his DJ services. People have said it was the most fun they've had at a wedding and give so much credit to the amazing DJ! We couldn't have selected a better DJ for our night, or a better guy to share in our celebration! THANK YOU, MIKE!!

Mike was hands down my favorite vendor. I would not say that I was a bridezilla but I was very particular about all the details for this important day in my life. After procuring a roof to have our party under that has good food, naturally the ...
next most important thing is good music. I was planning a wedding in the Boston area from Pennsylvania so I had to do all my vendor interviews over the phone after interviewing multiple DJs Mike was clearly the best for multiple reasons.
1. I could tell that he was confident and outgoing, an important quality for someone that'll be the MC for your special day
2. He knew how to mix and was not your typical boring party DJ
3. He also provided lighting, a service that was important to me but something that I didn't want to spend a million dollars on hiring yet another vendor.
Mike was one of the recommended DJs from the original vendor I booked, Lakeview Pavilion (which burned down before we were able to have our event there). Mike stayed with us even though we had to change venues and I'm sure that he played a major part in making everything run smoothly that evening, even with our last minutes changes like my Dad deciding he did want to give a speech after all. He waited to make sure I was around before he played my favorite songs and he managed to get people dancing all night that would normally leave a wedding early.
Many people will write reviews about just the day of but I think the planning process is just as important. Mike made sure to respond quickly to my emails, knowing that it was stressful to plan from out of state. He sat down with my multiple times to talk about my lighting requests (that went beyond just uplighting and he pulled them off flawlessly) and music requests. He also hired a company for me to have a chandelier hung in my venue (they didn't have one, I was missing the Lakeview look) and I was so glad he handled this, one less thing for me. We also rented a photo booth from Mike which was a huge hit!

Hiring Mike to DJ our fall wedding this past year was definitely one of our best wedding planning decisions! We hired him pretty early on in our 2.5 year long engagement, but it was worth the wait. Mike was always very responsive over email, ...
and because we hired him so far out I would occasionally "check in" to make sure we were all set for the big day. I never had any reason to worry with this awesome professional, but he always replied and reassured me that he was there for me for the big day and anything I needed on any day leading up to it.
My husband and I had a very specific desires for our wedding playlist filled with 90's music, and Mike not only respected that, but embraced it and joined us in our excitement. He edited our first dance song perfectly (so it wouldn't be so painfully long), he checked with us prior to the day of about the right versions of certain requested songs, and he put up with our occasional indecisiveness!
On the day of the wedding I truly felt like he was there for me. When I happened to glance in his direction, he was always looking back, reading my face and emotions to make sure things were as I'd requested. He checked in with me just enough to make sure he was sticking to the schedule I'd requested, but not too much that it interfered with my fun. When the dance floor hit a brief lull he made a suggestion of a few songs (that weren't on our playlist) that usually rev the party back up and asked if we were okay with the small change. We said yes because Mike knows best....and boy does he know best...it totally worked, and he kept people on the floor as he migrated back to our all 90's playlist.
Our friends are still telling us how much fun they had and how our dj "killed it" and was "on fire" that night!

Mike provided music and all the necessary equipment needed for both. One of the best features about hiring Mike's Music was their online music organizer. The organizer allowed us to sample thousands of different songs and music for both the ceremony and reception, which definitely helped us in our selection process.

Then it was time to go to the tent and PARTY! I have been to weddings before where the same groups of people are dancing the whole time, but Mike got everyone out on the floor more than I would have to say three times!

lanning for all of the events in helping us to think through procession and recession music, cocktail hour, formal dances. At the reception we only gave him a few requests and he took it from there and played songs to get the older people out, the young people into it, and a last song that left people absolutely begging for more. On the day of the wedding he checked in with everyone and made it totally possible to sit back and enjoy (he even reminded us of this!). Our guests have not stopped talking about how great the music was and how impressed they were that every single person was out on the dance floor till 11. My 90 year old grandfather even enjoyed dancing for the first time in years.
Hiring mike was the best thing we did. Can’t recommend him enough!

We got married October 6, 2012 and our wedding was a huge, fun party… and that is all thanks to Mike Bacon! DJ does not describe this man… he is the MC of weddings. He takes pride in every part of your wedding and reception. It was so easy plan...
ning with him, even when I had moved to Baltimore he made it easy by using Skype for our final meetings. He thought of every musical detail and brought the party together flawlessly. Mike made sure that we enjoyed every minute of our wedding. I told him how important it was to my husband and I that we get to eat our wedding dinner and Mike found us to let us know when each course had been served. Aside from having the timing and sequence of the reception down… he is a GREAT DJ! The music selection was awesome; the dance floor was packed the entire night. His announcements were great for cake cutting, bouquet toss etc. and everyone commented on how great he was. We went for the up-lighting for our wedding and I HIGHLY recommend this option! The lighting really did transform the room and make it magical. Overall, best party ever and we cannot thank Mike enough for the amazing job he did!!

He was a very calm and reassuring presence at the wedding and it made me feel great to know that he had a handle on the timing of everything, even when I felt things were behind schedule (what can you do when the weather outside is PERFECT for photos???) Oh, and the song selection was perfect and the lights set a great mood. A better wedding than we could have ever dreamed. At the end, my husband slumping in the corner when everyone was leaving because he was sad it was over. That's how good it was!!
I loved working with Mike and would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Thanks, Mike!

I am not from the Boston area so picking a DJ was scary for me. They are the key to the wedding so I felt a lot of pressure to find a fabulous one. Mike came recommended to me from a nurse at my hospital. SO glad I listened to her!
as very professional in every interaction my husband and I had with him leading to the wedding. When we sat down to go over everything he was great and accommodated all of our needs.
The wedding day was the best and EVERYONE complimented us on what a fabulous DJ he was! He really got the party going and entertained us through out. The music was great, the traditional reception to-dos were great and he was great. I could not have been happier with him!!!
He also did our ceremony music and he was great getting all the songs that I wanted for the processionals.
And he is not expensive at all! The one thing my husband and I agreed on was to spare no expense with food and music, but with Mike it wasn't "sparing expense". He was VERY affordable! And he has add on options that you can get to customize with him. We did basic ceremony and reception music and it was perfection!
I would recommend Mike to ANYONE who is getting married! But book EARLY! We got married in October 2012 and booked him in October 2011 and he was almost full already! I thought I was jumping the gun emailing him but turns out you need to with him! What better a review than a booked solid DJ :)

hich I could tell greatly offended him-- I later asked him to make an announcement and he made a snide remark about not being allowed on the microphone anymore. Mike is very very interactive -- if that's what you want that's great but he was way too much for us and our guests. We are loud group and like to have a great time dancing and having fun--the dance floor was empty at one point. I was also put off with our phone convos and emails all started off with how busy he was with his 2013 brides. I was all and all very disappointed with Mike-- he was very arrogant and too interactive-- many guests commented on him always trying to get attention. Our other vendors commented to me on how rude he was to them. His music choices were mediocre. I was really looking forward to a great DJ and was very let down. I was apprehensive on writing a negative review because this is his career/lively hood but I wish so bad I knew what I was in for and went a different direction.

rably impressed" she was with his "going above and beyond during the ceremony to make everything perfect". He is personable, easy to chat with and was there for us every step of the way before the wedding actually occurred. During the wedding, it went without a hitch- no errors, no mistakes. He had the dance floor packed, and really read our crowd! We go a bit against the grain, our group, and we love old 80s music- although these songs aren't usually popular, he could tell these were what got us going, and he had us dancing all night. You would never even know that it was torrential downpours. I think a DJ's job is much more important than most realize- they are the backbone to making your wedding what it will be- the order of things, the timing, the music, the flow, the games. He was NEVER corny, was able to engage with the crowd, checked in with me frequently without being overbearing. He was, in every sense, perfect. Finacially, he worked with us with our budget, and threw in little things here and there to really make our day perfect. He is a great guy, and an even better DJ. Just give him a phone call before you make a final decision. I highly doubt you'll go with anyone else!!

ling and pronunciation of the names of each and every member of the bridal party. I realized how important this was at my cousin's wedding (who did not have Mike as a DJ) when the DJ mispronounced the Father of the Bride's name. Mike knows how to make sure everyone is having an excellent time. If the dance floor isn't as lively as he thinks it can be, he instantly phases out one song and tries another to see if he can get more guests on the dance floor. Mike also did our rehearsal dinner and I cannot tell you how many friends told me it was the most fun they have ever had at a rehearsal dinner. I have been married for one month now and I still have friends and family telling me my wedding was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding. The DJ is an instrumental (no pun intended!) part of making this happen. I cannot thank Mike enough. I will definitely tell all of my friends who get married to use Mike and if I have any events requiring a DJ in the future, I will be calling Mike. It is important not to underestimate the role a DJ plays in how much fun your guests have at your wedding (which is totally a reflection on you!). At my cousin's wedding, her DJ played a Christmas song! (her wedding was in July) and Lady in Red (the bride wears white!). Hire DJ Mike! You will not regret it!

n, twice, to consult with us.
It was a happy accident that we happened to have similar musical tastes. I asked for a theme from Star Wars during the ceremony. For some DJ's this request might have seemed silly, but Mike's reaction was a great big smile and a few suggestions on other songs that would pair nicely. Music choices at the ceremony and reception can be risky (it's hard to predict how some music will be received), but Mike was incredibly supportive and helpful in making selections.
Coming up on the wedding we expressed an interest in using his lighting equipment to wash the venue in our wedding colors. Mike entered the venue sight unseen, and set up a beautiful arrangement of colors that was visually stunning both in mid-day and evening light.
During our wedding he provided top-notch services as an MC, clearly communicating with our guests (and our venue's kitchen!) as the evening progressed. Mike even stepped in to resolve a bridal bustle emergency before it delayed our introductions.
Mike is an absolute professional and clearly takes great pride in his work. We had an agreement with Mike that after the reception, he would be available to us at a reasonable hourly rate to continue to DJ. At the end of the night Mike approached me to say that he felt the party had a great atmosphere, and that the felt the extra time wouldn't be appropriate. Where some vendors might use that as an opportunity to capitalize and take some extra business, Mike was more interested in making sure that the event flowed perfectly than making an extra buck.
Mike is a good guy, and an awesome DJ. He is a trustworthy professional with a wealth of experience with these kinds of events, and is deeply committed to delivering a memorable experience.
Use Mike. He rocks.
