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!!!

We utilized Mike for ceremony and reception music, venue up lighting, and a custom monogram and my husband and I can't say enough great things about his services. From the first moment you speak with him you can tell he really loves his job which is reflected in everything that... Read More he does. We booked Mike very early on in our planning process and it was one of the best decisions we made since he was able to help us with other vender suggestions, creating a timeline and ceremony organization. This really helped put us at ease as we were planning our wedding from 6 hours away and communicated with our vendors primarily through email and a few phone calls. On the big day he was always putting us at ease and making sure that the wedding was running smoothly. We received many great compliments from our guests about Mike as our DJ. Even when the power went out on our venue and we were running on back up generator Mike didn't miss a beat. The whole night was amazing, a ton of fun and had a bunch of energy and we believe Mike was a big part of it.

Booking Mike as out DJ was easily the best decision we made. He was incredibly professional, but fun at the same time. He went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding.

We do not have enough words to express how happy we are with DJ Mike Garrasi, Music Man Entertainment. Before we even spoke with Mike, we were very impressed that many of the other vendors (photographers, venue coordinators) that we interviewed recommended him above other local... Read More DJs. And we now understand why he was so highly recommended. From the first time we spoke with him, it was clear that Mike LOVES what he does. He has so much energy - so many ideas, so much enthusiasm, and so much love for his customers. My partner and I love music, so we had lots of ideas, and quite a long list of music that we wanted at the wedding. We were so happy that Mike accommodated us with all of our requests, and made suggestions for areas with which we needed guidance. The few times that we had questions leading up to the wedding, Mike was happy to readily communicate with us via e-mail or phone. Oh and most importantly - the music at the wedding was just PERFECT. From the ceremony music, to the reception - it was phenomenal. Our guests were packed on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. We honestly could not be happier and would recommend DJ Mike Garrasi to anyone. Thank you, Mike, for making our wedding truly unforgettable.

Mike is by far, the best DJ in the game! From our first meeting with him years ago, his energy, excitment for our special day, and knowledge of the buisness are what made us book with him just moments after meeting for the first time (even though we had won a differnt DJ for... Read More free by that point). Now that our day has come and gone I can persoanlly vouch that he was worth every penny. Even during dinner his upbeat music had people up and dancing.

If you want an awesome party that you'll never forget I highly suggest you book with Music Man Entertainment!

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 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.

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.

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... Read More 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 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... Read More 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... Read More 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.
