If you are looking for a DJ stop here. Mike was amazing!! From the start I was very impressed with how professional he was. You can tell he is knowledgeable and passionate about his line of work. He was very easy to work with, friendly, and quick to respond to e-mails. We had a beginning meeting and an end meeting to go over all the music, talk about the timeline from start to finish, and he even made sure to go over everyone's name so that it was pronounced correctly. My husband and I were both very impressed with Mike and would definitely recommend him for anyone's wedding or truly any event you need a DJ for. Most importantly, on the wedding night- Mike delivered and exceeded our expectations. He played the songs we wanted and did a great job at mixing it all while keeping the dance floor packed! I think one of my favorite parts was his attention to detail and even made sure we had a drink when he saw we didn't have one! His personality and song transitions were a big hit. Our wedding night was truly magical and a big thanks to Mike for helping to keep our wedding running smoothly. I had so many guests comment on how smooth the entire wedding went from beginning to end (most of them said it was the smoothest wedding they have ever been a part of). Thank you Mike!
My fiancé and I met Mike a year ago at the bridal show at the Hall of Springs. We immediately knew he was he guy for us. Before booking officially and taking a small deposit Mike wanted to meet us and make sure he was the right DJ for us. He went through EVERYTHING with us and explained it all in detail: he really took the time to make sure he heard us and listened to what we wanted. Mike took 2 hours to get to know us. About a month before the wedding we touched base with Mike again and we went through all of the formalities and he made sure our night was going to be everything we wanted. Fast forward to our wedding day. The second we walked in the door Mike gave us a huge hug and congratulated us. He asked if anything we had planned changed and listened to us. Our dance floor was PACKED! One of my biggest concerns was not having people dance and being a lame wedding. Well let me tell you, we couldn't get people off of the dance floor. It took Mike 2 hours before he could play a slow song as everyone was dancing like crazy. I've been to other weddings and people aren't dancing but Mike knew us and our guests and made sure that everyone had a great time. Mike also did uplighting and a snowfall monogram for us, nothing short of perfect. Check out his website for pictures! In conclusion, if you are looking for a DJ that is going to listen to you and make your wedding everything you want and 10 times more Mike is your man.
Excellent Entertainment Services!Reviewed on 7/22/2015 Erika G
For us, one of the most important aspects of our wedding was the entertainment. We are so fortunate that Mike Garrasi and Music Man Entertainment were recommended to us from several people. He was everything that we had hoped for in a DJ and more. From our initial conversations with him over a year away from our wedding to our final meeting in the week before the wedding, Mike provided impeccable service. First, the planning aspects of Mike's service were fantastic. He met with us in person so that he was able to fully understand the vision that we had for our day. He asked so many questions so that he was able to make sure that we were all on the same page. We left the meeting feeling confident that our day would be perfect and that Mike would play an integral role in the carryout of the reception. All this being said, the day of our wedding could not have gone more perfectly. Everything from the cocktail hour music, to the introductions, to the first dance, and dinner music were perfectly chosen and timed. Then, after dinner, the real party started. Mike kept the dance floor packed from the minute dinner was through up until the last song that was played. All night and in the days following our wedding people were saying, "I have never seen so many people on a dance floor for so long!" or "Your wedding had the best DJ!", or "The music at you wedding was so great that I didn't leave the dance floor." If you are looking for a DJ that will put time, effort, professionalism, and care into your wedding and keep the dance floor packed all night long, then Mike Garrasi of Music Man Entertainment is the DJ for you! We would wholeheartedly recommend him over and over again to anyone looking to have an insanely and impossibly fun event!!!
We booked Mike Garrasi for our Albany Country Club wedding reception and could not be happier or thank him enough. Our dance floor was packed and often overflowing for almost 3 straight hours. Mike is extremely professional, accommodating, and just an all around super nice guy. We got tons of compliments on the DJ during and after the wedding. Mike was beyond professional, and took the time to get to know us as a couple, which allowed him to make the absolutely best playlist ever for our wedding. There was never a doubt in our minds that Mike was the perfect fit- he isn't a show stealer, and makes every second all about the bride, groom, and the guests. His selfless, upbeat, and genuine personality radiates from behind the DJ booth- we love you Mike!! So if you want to get the party rockin then I'd go a knockin on Mike Garrasi's door and book him. Made our reception a blast and a memorable one for sure.
If there are two people who will set the entire tone for your wedding day, it is your DJ and your photographer. We were extremely happy with Mike's services leading up to the wedding and his work the day of the wedding. He was professional, prompt, engaged, and knowledgeable in discussing the details as we planned for the reception. The day of the wedding, we didn't have to worry about our timeline or shuffling people around because we knew that Mike was monitoring and prepping everyone for each step (the entrances, toasts, dances, etc). He is very passionate about what he does and works hard to personalize your reception for your tastes and your crowd. Thanks so much Mike!
Mike was definitely the right choice for our wedding. Let's just say my husband and I understand why he was booking out almost two years now. Everything about the song selection process to the actual wedding reception was flawless and he always made us feel he was going above and beyond to make us happy. In fact, we actually wanted to book him an extra hour because everyone was having so much fun dancing. Mike was more than happy to continue but unfortunately our venue wouldn't let us (they already had teardown staff waiting). All in all Mike exceeded our expectations and we would recommend him to anyone looking to book a DJ in a heartbeat. From the song selection he used to the announcements we requested be made, everything was as smooth as possible. We have friends who are getting married in a few weeks and we can't wait to go to their wedding - Mike is their DJ also!
Mike is a true professional and handled all aspects of his duties to perfection. Mike prepared well, making sure my daughter considered all music choices carefully before the ceremony. Mike did an awesome job with music for the service and cocktail hours. Before introductions, Mike took the time to get proper pronunciations of each person in the wedding party. Truly an exceptional Master of Ceremonies. The music pumped and the up-lighting superb. Guests filled the dance floor all night long. So happy we chose Mike to DJ our daughters wedding!
Mike Garrasi was the first and last DJ that we spoke to when planning our wedding reception. We had a great time laughing and joking with Mike at our initial meeting, and it was clear to us that he would be the right choice to DJ our wedding. Not only was he very personable and knowledgeable, he offered additional options to liven our party, such as up-lighting, and a custom dance color logo. We booked Music Man Entertainment that very week. While speaking with Mike at our final consultation, he offered music and MC suggestions that worked seamlessly into our plans. We provided a “must-play” song list, which he eagerly accommodated. He knew right away what type of music to play for our guests. During dinner, a classic Beatles song came on (we’re HUGE fans), and it just so happened that Mike stopped by while the song was playing to make sure we were happy with the music selections thus far. We mentioned that we love the Beatles, and without a second thought, Mike mixed in a few more of their songs over the course of the night. This showed a great deal of thoughtfulness and consideration. Mike also gave us direction at the reception, to help move the party along. At the end of the night, many guests came up to us and expressed how happy they were with Mike’s work. A few people even asked for his contact information. Looking back on our big day, we highly recommend Music Man Entertainment due to Mike’s professionalism, musical knowledge, and sincere dedication to clients. Thanks for a great, memorable night Mike!
I am not sure that 5 stars are enough to describe how fantastic Mike is! He goes above and beyond at every opportunity, is always ready to help, and never turns off even for a moment. He is everything that you want in a DJ/MC, energetic, enthusiastic, ecstatic, and elevates every room he is in. Just through the times that we talked to him before our wedding, he was able to nail the style of music that we love listening to as a couple and it was like he knew our favorite songs. He knew the ups and downs of the wedding, what songs to bring up next, and while I am sure he would have taken requests I am not sure that anyone gave any because it was as if he had the song queued up before anyone even thought of asking. He was more than accommodating with special requests for the special moments throughout the wedding from the ceremony, to the reception, to the fireworks at the end he had it all. He did such a fantastic job that everyone was complimenting and talking about him at the end of the night asking who he was and where we found him. Even the father of the bride was very impressed and stated that he would recommend him a thousand times over and so would we! If it sounds like I am gushing, it is because I am and cannot say enough as to how great of a job Mike did. If you have any event ever that needs a DJ, an MC, or even just a great guy at your wedding Mike is your guy. Between his great prices, fantastic professionalism, and superb performance there really is no other choice.
Mike was absolutely amazing!! He was very professional and we loved his energy! He had great taste in music for guests of all age groups! He always kept my friends and family on the dance floor! He was great at announcing when different activities were occurring to help keep our wedding running smoothly. We absolutely believe that our wedding was so much more enjoyable with Mike there, and anyone would be lucky to work with him!
Mike Garassi, Music Man Entertainment, was exceptionl and exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend him for you wedding and/or DJ services, you will not be disappointed!
The best DJ around! DJ Mike was awesome and went above and beyond. Definitely will recommend his services and use him again. Thanks for an awesome wedding nite for our daughters wedding.
A little over two years ago we booked a meeting with Mike due to the hundreds of wonderful reviews we found on WeddingWire. As our first meeting came to an end it was very clear to us that Mike needed to be our DJ. We didn’t think twice and hired him right then and there at our first meeting. He is so incredibly passionate about what he does and that truly reflected on our wedding day. We feel so lucky to have been able to book you for our wedding. Clearly you are one of the best in the business. The dance floor was packed the entire night! Our family and friends were so impressed by you. Mike went above and beyond what a normal DJ would provide. He even helped me to put together a wedding day timeline. Mike, the light up “LOVE” letters were worth every penny! You make many decisions while planning for your wedding and booking Music Man Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Mike was just wonderful to work with and you will not regret your decision to book him for your big day!
Mike Garrasi was awesome work with! He did my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception! He gave us suggestions for songs when we weren't sure on what the adults should walk out to for introductions. He also made sure our future mother in law wouldn't play a certain song at our reception. I received many compliments on how good of a DJ he was. I would highly recommend him!
Mike was absolutely amazing!!! From the second we met him, you could tell how passionate he was about his career. He is so easy going and so fun to work with. He was there every step of the way whenever my husband and I needed anything. Most importantly, he kept that dance floor packed all night!! There is no need to look anyway else, Music Man Entertainment is the WAY TO GO.
Absolutely the best in the business! Mike is very professional but also knows how to have a good time. Not only is he a great DJ, but he helped us make many decisions about our wedding that we were otherwise clueless about. I can honestly say that Mike has been a friend since day 1 and was never "just the DJ". I would highly recommend him to anyone!! Actually, there is no better option, as far as we are concerned.
Mike is the only DJ you should ever consider hiring. He made our wedding perfect -- from coming early to set up, to playing the perfect ceremony music, to giving us killer entrances and AMAZING service all night. He made sure everything went smoothly and had everyone dancing all night. We will only book him in the future for parties because he is THE MAN. You need to hire Mike!
Mike did an amazing job!! Had everyone on the dance floor at all times. Had a ton of fun with him as our DJ!
Mike was absolutely amazing to work with. He made everything so easy and worryfree. Our wedding was beyond perfect thanks to Mike. You will not be disappointed!!
Mike is more than we could have hoped for in a DJ for our wedding. He was on top of every single detail and thought of things we hadn't which was so helpful! He explained things we had questions on, and he worked with us on every single detail. His skills in putting songs together that start/end accordingly so it flows nicely were amazing! He even mastered that with going from American to Bollywood songs for our American/Indian wedding. He made sure pronunciations were correct and timing was perfect. His video package is a GREAT addition for anyone considering it. It was a hit!! It allowed for personal memories with father/daughter, mother/son, and first dance. Mike was always available throughout the whole process, even over a year out. He was also the ONLY DJ who called me back and met up to discuss his business instead of writing an email. That personal touch was very appreciated and made us feel like he wanted to get to know us, not just sign a contract like others made us feel. He is friendly, outgoing, funny, detail oriented, and an overall great person. I could go on and on!! Thank you so much Mike for making our big day the best!!!
Mike did a FANTASTIC job with our ceremony and reception! The ceremony music was perfect and exactly what we wanted. For the reception, from the introductions to the last song, there wasn't a thing we would change. He knew the right music to get the crowd dancing and everyone we have talked to has only had great things to say about his services. We also added on the LED lights package which completely transformed our venue. I would highly recommend this option! I would recommend Mike in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a DJ for their upcoming event. Mike is not only a great DJ, but an awesome host -- he knows how to move things along and how to get the party started!
If you want to go with someone who makes your wedding day all about you and your taste, book Mike Garrasi with Music Man Entertainment. He has gone above and beyond to make mine and my wife's wedding day as special as possible. anything we asked for, he was able to deliver. he took the time to get to know my wife and I, and really took the time and effort to capture what we wanted for our wedding day. It amazed us that no matter what time of day or night that we sent him an email, we would get an almost immediate response. He was an awesome dj, and just all around great guy to work with. I would also recommend you ask Mike about his new light up L.O.V.E. and MR. & MRS. letters. They really made the night that much more special. Everyone was talking about them, and they made for awesome pictures.
GO WITH MIKE! Mike made our wedding experience incredible. Throughout the process he was energetic, attentive and helpful when it came to making decisions. Our wedding day music, from the ceremony to the last song, was perfect in every way for us. He listened to what we wanted and hoped for on our day and made it all happen. The dance floor was packed from the start of our reception to the end! We would HIGHLY recommend Mike for any wedding, big or small
Mike Garrasi at Music Man Entertainment was absolutely amazing! Even though we had a smaller wedding with only 50 guests, Mike went above and beyond to make our wedding awesome! He was there for us from start to finish as we planned out our wedding day and he was never more than a phone call away. We were very impressed at not only the high level of customer service that we received, but also the fun atmosphere that he helped to create on our special day. He kept the dance floor packed from start to finish and every single one of our guests found themselves dancing the night away. I look forward to the next opportunity that arises to utilize Mike for another event. I would Highly recommend Mike for all of your DJ needs.
I can't wait enough positive things about Mike! From the first phone call he was so responsive and knowledgeable. We were worried about the accoustics of our venue and Mike completely put us at ease- and we had no issues with sound at all. The music selection was amazing- our guests all commented we had the best DJ ever. Mike goes out of his way to make everyone feel comfortable. BOOK HIM- you won't regret it!!!!!
