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!!!

Mike Garrasi (Music Man Entertainment) did an INCREDIBLE job at our wedding a couple of weeks ago!! We booked him nearly two years ago because everyone said he was the BEST and they were RIGHT!!! He made everything SO easy for us (especially since I moved 10 hours away partway... Read More through planning my wedding) and he was a BLAST to work with. After giving Mike just a few suggestions for songs during the reception he came up with a great playlist that captured our taste perfectly and kept the guests on the dance floor all night. Many of our guests said our wedding was the best they had ever been to and I strongly believe that Mike had a lot to do with that! He is DJ'ing my sisters wedding next October and I can't wait!


Best DJ Ever!!

Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with in all aspects of our wedding. Mike was extremely easy to talk and down to earth. It was like we had known him for years. Mike took ample amount of time to go over every detail of our wedding and extremely accommodating to all of our... Read More requests. Simply put, Mike was fantastic. We could not have dreamt of a better DJ to host our wedding. From our introductions to our last song, Mike had EVERYONE up and on the dance floor. Our guests repeatedly said to us that they loved all of the songs and they had never been to a wedding that was more fun or filled with energy. One of the best things about Mike was that he knew this was our special day, and he wanted the focus to be on us. At other weddings we have attended, the DJ's tend to take some of the spotlight; either with constant commentary or the distribution of props. However, Mike let the music essentially do the talking and the pulse inside of the room was fantastic. He also "checked in" with us to make sure everything was going well and was going exactly the way we wanted. Hiring Mike was one of the best decisions we made, making our day even more special. We really could not have asked for anything more from a DJ.

Mike is AWESOME! Mike made this process fun and easy and was so genuine and helpful throughout the entire process. We spoke to Mike numerous times via e-mail and phone and he was extremely responsive to any questions or requests that we had. Not only is he an amazing DJ, he's... Read More also just an amazing person. We actually found Mike before booking our venue and when the time came to choose a venue, we actually excluded one because Mike was already booked on the day that they had open. Going through this process we honestly didn't feel like we were hiring a DJ but rather making a friend. We have already recommended Mike to my sister in law for her wedding and we will continue to recommend him for anyone that is looking for the best DJ around! Mike really just wants you to enjoy your wedding and his passion for his work really shows through in his service. Mike also happened to be extremely reasonable in his pricing which was nice as a couple planning a wedding on a budget. While other DJ's seemed appalled that someone would actually consider costs when planning their wedding; Mike fully recognized that there are plenty of other expenses and that he really just wants to be part of your special day! My only hope is that down the road we get to see Mike at more events!

He met with us the week before the wedding to brainstorm ideas and set the plan for the big day and he was so invested in making sure our day...

Mike was an absolute pleasure and delight to work with, and SO much fun. His willingness to be flexible with whatever we wanted/needed, his time and patience working with Tim and I as we were living out of the area while planning, and his overall energy about DJing our wedding... Read More made us feel SO well-cared for and at ease during the planning process. Mike was completely on board with our vision the whole time, no matter what the change was, and it did not go unnoticed. On top of all this, the night of our wedding went FLAWLESSLY. From mic-Ing the officiant and Tim during the ceremony, to putting us up in chairs, to hitting every dance song possible. Our family and friends loved every minute of it and so did we. He was always asking us how everything was going, and made us feel really comfortable. We LOVED every single thing about working with Mike and would recommend him to absolutely anyone and everyone looking for a DJ for any occasion! Thanks SO much Mike!! Tim and I hope to work with you again soon enough! Alexa

Any wedding can incorporate hundreds of decisions, big and small, with some mattering so much more. Having been able to reflect back over the past month about our Special Day, we can confidently say that one of best decisions we made was to hire Mike Garrasi as our DJ. We...

He was quick with responses when emailed, gave great input and was very accommodating with all requests. He holds himself to a high standard of professionalism, yet brings an incredible amount of energy and a charismatic personality to the table. He kept the place rocking from the very first song, and the slideshow, up-lighting and monogram lighting he provided all added great touches! During our reception, if there was even the slightest uncertainty about something, Mike would tell us it was not our problem to worry and would promptly handle it. His service was beyond anything we expected. We know we could not have asked for a better DJ and would absolutely recommend Mike Garrasi to anyone planning a wedding. We can only hope that we are lucky enough to see him in action again at a future wedding!

If I could give Mike 6 stars I would. We discovered Mike when we attended a wedding in Saratoga 2 years ago that he was DJing. When we got engaged we immediately reached out to our friends to get Mike's details so we could ask him to DJ our wedding in NYC. It was easily one of... Read More the best decisions we made in planning the wedding. When planning the big day, every time we spoke to Mike he had an infectious energy to him. He was so easy to work with and made it clear he was willing to go the extra mile to make our day special. When the day of the wedding came Mike was at the venue HOURS early. He made us feel like our wedding was as important to him as if we were his own family. I have to also give Mike extra credit because helped me pull off a massive surprise performance for my bride that I put together with myself and the bridal party. This surprise had a lot of moving parts but leading up to it he made me feel so confident that we could pull it off that it took a lot of stress off of me. The surprise went off without a hitch and I can't thank Mike enough for his help. Now when it comes to the actual DJing, Mike is all aces. He had our 125 guests on the dance floor all night. The energy was insane. We had so many guests tell us in the days and weeks following the wedding that they'd never had so much fun on the dance floor. Mike was just incredible to work with. On the day of the wedding he makes you feel like that wedding is the only thing in the world that matters to him, and it shows. His customer service is second to none. Mike thank you so much for everything. We'll never forget it.

You could feel his energy and passion for his business already over the phone! Working with Mike calling back and forth from Florida was no problem at all. He had flexible calling hours, and even would call later in the evening/night if we had a scheduling conflict. He was AMAZING and had us completely at ease from the time we first spoke to him 2 years ago until the final moments of our big day. He worked perfectly with the staff at the Franklin Plaza (Joe, Greg and Jerry) and did not miss a beat with the music at both our Cocktail Hour and Reception. He was open to ANY music we wanted (including Disney songs mixed in with other classical music) and was able to offer any advice when we were completely lost (such as what songs to select during bouquet and garter toss). My guests all complemented his ability to pick songs that worked with every generation that was present for the reception; songs that my 16-20 year old cousins and my 80 year old grandparents knew! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night. I have never seen my grandparents dance so much in my entire life! This was my first wedding to ever attend or be a part of, and I was a bride that was completely anxiety free because of Mike's work alongside Casey Connell Photography and the staff at Franklin Plaza! Thank you thank you THANK YOU Mike for your AMAZING work and my AMAZING reception. It wouldn't have been the same without you!
