We hired Mike as our DJ about 2 years in advance knowing what he brings to the party and it was definitely the right move. He has the dancing on point of course, the floor rocked all night... It was being 110% on point with the rest of our requests is what sets him aside from... Read More everyone else. We had a ceremony filled with 3-4 Disney piano songs for when the grandmother, mother, and bridesmaids walked, one separate for our flower girls and ring bearer, one for when the bride walked down the staircase of course and one song to end everything at our first kiss. His timing of each song was precise. It sounds like nothing, but when one of the little flower girls is crying and cutely confused, waiting those few extra moments to get settled before the bride comes out is important. Those perfect music transitions made our ceremony magical. We’ve been getting nothing but complements and they really belong to Mike. Credit his equipment as well. We read personal vows into a microphone on a stand. I’ve never spoken into one... It was clean and crisp. Put us both at ease. He also had his wireless wall up-lights that transform the room into different colors through the night - just awesome. Wouldn’t have hired anyone else. Knew we were getting a professional DJ but Mike is just next level. Thank you Mike, keep up the hard work! Highly recommended.

Where do we start!

Throughout the year of planning he... Read More was there to answer and questions and help support our visions.

For that alone, we are eternally grateful. The day of the wedding came and Mike was rocking outside a full two hours before our ceremony started, through out our first look we could heard the music and it was so awesome....as with any wedding event timelines are backed up people go missing but Mike was all over it! particularly when I went missing for my own sparkler send off!! haha thanks again for having my back mike! He played throughout our after party and met every single one of our requests and needs and then some! He even ensured my crazy sister and MOH was happy.

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.

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.

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.

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.
