We used On the Mic for our wedding on 07/08/17. Our venue recommended On the Mic so we met with Brian Kerns in October 2016.

Our wedding reception could have not been more perfect! Brian did such an awesome job of being calm and professional throughout the whole event. He talked with our bridal party right before the reception to go over pronunciation of names again and to explain to them what was going to happen during the reception entrance, as we had planned. He did an excellent job of moving the reception along with speeches and the bride/groom, father/daughter and the mother/son dance. The dance floor was packed the whole reception! Everyone had such a great time! On the Mic was so easy to work with and professional. I totally recommend them! Thank you so much for making our wedding reception so fun!

Great DJ-ing at the wedding. Our DJ, John, was great! He was super helpful and he played all the songs to get the guests on the dance floor. He kept the night at a great pace and listened to my directions. No complaints about the DJ at all, everyone I know had a great time!

On the Mic Entertainment... I am not quite sure what to say. Admittedly, I was rather concerned going into the day of the wedding. When we first booked them for our special day, we spoke with Brian Kerns, who assured us that he would be our DJ for the evening. I was a little... Read More apprehensive - I had only ever heard wonderful things, but Brian is a different kind of person to deal with. Despite the fact that he is very experienced and clearly knows what he's doing, his confidence borders on obnoxious arrogance, and I was unsure as to how that might sit with my family. Nonetheless, I had every confidence that he would take care of us just the same. About two and a half weeks before the wedding, however, I received an e-mail from James Bischoff informing me that he would be our DJ instead. I wasn't necessarily complaining, but we never were told exactly why that change took place. I assume, though, that it was for good reason. Upon meeting with James, I was rather uneasy. While he was far more laid back and personable than Brian, I got the distinct impression that he did not like me very much. I could tell that he was not at all pleased with our order of events, but by that time our programs had already been printed - schedule included. My now-husband absolutely adored him from the start, however, and now that everything is said and done, I couldn't complain if I wanted to. James was absolutely wonderful, and he kept the reception moving and ON TIME - I couldn't believe it! Our wedding was the first I ever attended where everything happened right on schedule... except the cake cutting, but that was my fault (long story). Just the same, he was fantastic, and the maid of honor and best man both loved him as well. I wouldn't have traded him for anyone else! I am very excited to add my review to the many others that convinced me to choose On the Mic Entertainment in the first place. They were truly wonderful, and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

We used On the Mic for our music at our wedding last weekend and we were very happy! We also opted for their photobooth and uplighting which our guests really enjoyed! They even put copies of our guests photos in a nice album for us to take home! Sean was our DJ and we were very... Read More impressed with his professionalism. He met with us before the wedding to nail down details and asked us questions about things that we hadn't even thought of! The assistants for the music and photo booth were very professional as well! They made sure everything with intros went smoothly and kept the dance floor packed all night! We had a long, long list of song requests and Sean was great about making sure each got played! I've heard some other vendors will only allow you to have 10 or so requests and the rest is up to the DJ's discretion, but we were so happy this wasn't the case! Sean accommodated us with our dinner music as well- we had requested acoustic versions of popular country songs without the lyrics and they were a big hit with many of our guests! There was a slight snag with the sound system, that Sean worked diligently to get out the kinks and it was no big deal! I would highly recommend them!!

Just fantastic! We had Sean as our DJ and he was wonderful! He kept everything on track, had a great personality, and was just so much fun to be around. He made sure all of our must have songs were played. That even including the Hot Dog song from Mickey mouse clubhouse for our... Read More little two year old son. He was extremely professional too. My husband and I found out after the wedding (from one of our guests) that he was having some difficulty with the sound system in our venue (which it was an old mansion so that is no surprise). However, he didn't even flinch or let us know. He just kept it going and rolled with the punches. We also had uplighting provided by them and it was beautiful! We were concerned about doing that considering the electrical within the old house, but everything was battery operated and LED. It worked out perfectly! I would and will recommend them again and again! Sean was the BEST and Brian was such a pleasure to work with as well.

Sean and On the Mic Entertainment DJ'ed our wedding October 15, 2016 at the Gish Barn and they were AMAZING from start to finish. We cannot say enough wonderful things about them. We searched long and hard and contacted several DJ's and felt most comfortable with On the Mic.... Read More Living out of town makes planning a wedding a little more difficult but they were awesome at communicating and made the planning seem easy. They were honest and upfront with us and told us with our specific venue that up lighting is not necessary and that it might take away from the rustic appeal we were going for. Sean was super laid back, flexible, and accomodating. He met with me a few weeks before the wedding and went over everything, including how to correctly pronounce everyone's name. Having DJ'ed at our venue before he was very helpful and made several recommendations on what has worked best in the past. On our wedding day, 15 minutes before our ceremony Sean's computer did an automatic upgrade and shut down. He ended up playing all our ceremony music through his phone and we never knew any of this until after the fact. At first we were a little nervous because we were told there would be two people (DJ and an MC) on our big day but after meeting with Sean he said it was just going to be him at our wedding. However, Sean far exceeded our expectations and wasn't just a DJ but a mini wedding planner. He helped us make a schedule for the big day, took charge, and made sure we stayed on track. He made our day run so smoothly by checking in with us to see if there was anything he could do. He was awesome at keeping the party going and kept people on the dance floor until the lights came on. We didn't even get a chance to talk to all our guests because Sean kept us dancing. I cannot tell you how many compliments we got about our DJ. When we got back to the bar/restaurant at the hotel we were staying at we were surprised to see Sean there. He said our friends and family were so much fun he wanted to continue celebrating with us. He was so much fun, is awesome at what he does, and it's evident he truly loves his job. We HIGHLY recommend Sean and On the Mic Entertainment!

I am the owner of On the Mic Entertainment, but I’m also one of the DJs. Over 10 years ago I started singing karaoke at a local bar. I quickly became friends with the DJ. He went on vacation and I had my opportunity to fill in as the DJ. I FELL IN LOVE! My love for all music, and my need to be in front of people made this the perfect job for me. I get to meet new people ever week and see the joy on their face when they are having a great time is enough for me. I was hooked, and still am to this day!
