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... Read More 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... Read More 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!

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... Read More 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!!!

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... Read More 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!

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...

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... Read More 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!!!

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... Read More 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.

Everyone was talking about them, and they made for awesome pictures.

Mike was so easy to work with from day one. My husband and I planned almost our entire wedding from another state, and while we expected this to be difficult with our vendors, Mike made this process very easy for us. He was clear on what he needed from us (which really wasn't a... Read More lot) and when he needed it. I felt prepared for everything that he was going to do and say throughout the night, as he went over an itinerary with me prior to the wedding. His energy at the wedding was amazing and he kept people dancing the entire night. When someone requested a song, he ran it by us first to make sure that we were comfortable with the request. He was able to get our guest of ALL ages up and dancing on the dance floor. It was such a magical night and the music was a huge part of that. So we thank Mike for his amazing DJ skills, as well as his non-stop energy, enthusiasm, and kindness! If you're looking for the perfect DJ, Mike from Music Man Entertainment is your guy!
