If you want your guests to keep dancing the whole night and for your guests to tell you that your wedding was "the best reception ever!", you have to hire DJ Michael. He gets to know you in the planning process, so he knows exactly what you want for your big day. Once it's time... Read More for the reception, you won't worry about a thing. We chose the gold package for our wedding and he transformed a blank canvas into a work of art with his lighting. It was absolutely beautiful! He also created a backdrop for our sweetheart table and it made such a difference with our photos. He really is the best! Choose MRK Entertainment- Michael will be the best choice you make for your DJ and lighting!

My husband and I interviewed a number of DJ companies, and we really clicked the most with Michael at M.R.K. Entertainment. He has the personality, the experience, and understood what we wanted; a party that wouldn't stop with music that fit our style. He knows a lot about... Read More reading a crowd and playing things to cater to a wide variety of tastes. He definitely cares about creating a custom experience for each Bride and Groom, and the questions he asked us on the way to our wedding day showed that. He was really one of our most thoughtful vendors, and he really helped us with the planning process and was very organized. We used his DJ service, as well as some lovely uplighting (we went with pink, which looked beautiful!) and a monogram on the wall behind the sweetheart table, which my husband wasn't on board with until he saw it. It looked great. We got a lot of compliments on how gorgeous our venue looked, and I attribute much of that to the extra touches we got. The DJ service on the day of the wedding was outstanding. He remained organized and kept things together. He communicated well with the venue, got set up on time, and confirmed the schedule with the venue coordinator, and made sure the flow of the evening was right. This kept me relaxed and having fun. He saw what people were feeling and what they weren't, and he kept everyone on their feet without being cheesy. He was on point with timing, and not for a moment did I stop having fun on the dance floor to think of a single thing he could have done better. I've already recommended him to two friends of mine that are engaged and planning weddings! I hope they pick him, because I'd love to go to a wedding he's Djing as a guest!

My fiancée and I contacted Michael Kennedy for dj services for our wedding. We met with him a couple of times. He was extremely polite, professional, and came up with many helpful ideas which went beyond the traditional dj role. Michael knows a great deal about lighting and has...

One of the best decisions we made was working with Michael for our wedding. He is a total professional and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. I'm talking came and met with us on a Sunday to talk through the day and show us how to use his very handy online...

Also, we had one of the only wedding ceremonies I've been to where everyone was mic-ed properly and you could actually hear the officiant and vows! This at an outdoor venue next to the ocean - not an easy feat. Our guests were dancing all night long, he had a great lighting display, and his #1 goal was to make us happy - mission accomplished! I can not recommend highly enough.

Working with Michael was such a pleasure! We knew one of the most important vendors a part of a wedding is the DJ/music.

Michael and his assistant DJ Adrian both did a fantastic job with the music at our wedding. Our reception was a total of 8 hours, but the time Michael and his team spent with us was much longer than what we merely booked for music. They were very professional and went above... Read More and beyond examining our venue and ensured that an echo-y room (which we were quite nervous about!) had crystal clear music by the end of it. Michael especially went out of his way meeting with us in advance and making sure we got exactly the music we wanted.

Our minds were going a mile a minute that day, but when we saw our video recently, with the guests dancing, and everyone having a great time--we knew we made the right the choice with Michael :) :)

Michael was responsive, engaged, and truly "got us" as a couple.

Being a more casual event, there was some LED lighting that highlighted the location we chose. He had some fun dance floor lighting, without being over-bearing. Not only was the music superb, but he helped keep us on track for our schedule as well.
