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.

We loved working with Mike. He is without a doubt the best out there. He went above and beyond all of our expectations and was so easy to work with. He was also an invaluable resource for us, because we living out of town when we planned our wedding. He offered great insight... Read More on other vendors, and literally helped us in any way he possible could. He also offered great advice and had unique ideas to customize our wedding. And he was very easy to get ahold of. Whether it was by email, phone, or facebook, he would always get back to us within a couple hours max. We paid extra for the uplighting, which was worth every penny. It completely transformed an already gorgeous venue and took it to the next level. We would definitely recommend it! Mike loves what he does and it shows in his work. He has such great energy and knows his stuff. Seriously, you won’t find anyone better in the area. If you don’t believe us, just ask around.

My husband and I had heard a lot about Mike through various websites and vendors. Because he is so highly recommended, we booked him to D.J. our wedding two years in advance. Throughout the time between booking him and our wedding, Mike met with us various times (on the phone,... Read More in person and through social media) to get an idea of what we wanted played, a feel for our musical interests and just to get to know us as a couple. From his many years of experience within the wedding business, he offers excellent insight on the best way to maximize your "party time" while ensuring a nice flow of events to keep guests entertained for the whole night. Our original plan of the formalities had a few flaws and Mike reconstructed it to create the best and most continuous progression throughout the reception. My husband and I had a few personalized touches for introductions, lighting, etc. and Mike designed a complete customized plan that fully met our vision. Mike's professionalism and expertise is second to none. His high energy, enthusiasm and love of his profession makes the wedding experience one that will not only be unique, but talked about for years after. I would highly recommend Mike for anyone who wants to have an amazing and memorable wedding. Words cannot express how great of a person Mike is and how pleased we are with his service. Our friends and family were on the dance floor the whole night, up until the last song. We all truly did not want the party to end and begged for one last encore song, which Mike happily played. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same if Mike wasn't a part of it!

I knew I was going to book Mike the moment that I spoke to him for the first time on the phone. My husband and I live in New York City, so we were looking for a true professional that would be easy to work with from a few hundred miles away. Mike was always responsive, always... Read More got back to us within 24 hours, and was NEVER bothered to talk. He was so excited for our wedding, had the most wonderful attitude, and made us feel at ease. I am a very uptight person and a real perfectionist, but Mike made it very easy to let go - I fully trusted him to do the best job, and he surely delivered. Music was seriously never a worry with Mike. I booked Mike and then we met up at Starbucks with my now husband, and as soon as we left my husband couldn't stop saying how cool Mike was. Mike really enjoys what he does and truly wants you to have the best wedding ever. And he surely gave that to us and our guests. Thank you Mike, for giving us an unbelievable night of fun. You definitely get what you pay for, and Mike is worth every penny. Also, Mike did our ceremony music and had mikes/speakers for our officiant, did cocktail hour music, and did the reception music. He had three different set ups. We also had Mike do lighting for us as well.

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!
