Michael did a phenomenal job DJing our wedding and reception! I can’t say enough great things about Michael. He was on time, set up promptly, played all our ceremony music just like we wanted even down to specific minutes I requested on certain songs, and played all our favorite music all night long!! Everyone loved him and raved about how he kept the party going! We recommend him to anyone who wants to have a killer party! Thank you so much, Michael!
Best dj. Like ever.
I cannot express enough how much I value Mike and the service he provides. He is so knowledgeable and his experience made our wedding an amazing night for us and our guests!! My 81 year old grandmother couldn't walk home because she was dancing so much!! Thank you for your hard work. We love you so much!!
Michael was absolutely incredible. He had all the equipment needed and placed every speaker in perfect position and had great dance floor lights. The was never a dull moment during the reception. He had everyone up and dancing from beginning to end and we even extended it an extra hour, which he was more than pleased to keep the party going. We highly recommend booking Mr. Michael for your next event or wedding!

Michael was wonderful! We hired him to DJ at my boyfriends graduation party, and he did not disappoint! He was responsive and proactively followed up with me for music choices and event details. He was available every step of the way, and did a great job day-of. The lighting and music was perfect, and he interacted with guests and made sure everyone had a great time. I highly recommend him, and will definitely hire him again. Great DJ!
Michael was great, very flexible and helpful. He was kind, knowledgeable and efficient. Michael quickly adjusted to last minutes changes, accommodated all music request and did it all with a smile. He exceeded expectations in all areas. Definitely our go to DJ from now on!!!

We contracted with Michael for our outdoor wedding and were incredibly happy with the service he provided. Michael showed up with plenty of time on the day of, and did a great job with the sound for the ceremony, even adapting when he had to move his setup. But where Michael really shined was in the music during our cocktail hour, dinner, and the party. He had a great feel for the flow of the evening, and played a fun selection of music that still allowed people to talk and catch up, before moving into dance music that made everyone happy. He was easy to work with and flexible in all our questions and suggestions.
To start, my husband and I are HUGE music lovers. We love all types of music and honestly can be a bit picky about which artists we envisioned playing at our wedding. Michael was totally cool with us making a playlist ahead of time so he could get a feel for our taste. We also had an outside ceremony - Michael went above and beyond to get us outside speakers so we could have all the music we wanted for our ceremony and what we called a "pre-ceremony" time that had our guests sitting in the forest listening to a few of our favorite ethereal tunes. Michael was amazing - he was pleasant and funny when being an MC. He made sure the attention was on the music and us. When he did go off our playlist... it was like he knew us for years and chose exactly what we would have! 90s R&B and our great love for Prince <3 If you love music and want it to be an important part of your wedding day. Michael is your person!
Michael was amazing… The weather affected my wedding being outside and everything had to be brought inside at the last minute he was so flexible & was able to play my favorite song to walk down the aisle to as well as incorporate all the playlist that I sent him for different music genres. My friends and family said It was the best wedding they had ever been to!!
Michael was great from the time I hired him until he played the last song at the reception. He was so accommodating and many of the guests commented on how they loved ALL of the music...from the slow and sweet dinner music to the fun dance songs. I will hire him again if the need arises and I would strongly recommend booking him before his schedule fills. Affordable and friendly too!
He was great! He was super easy to work with and put together a great set for our whole wedding reception. We had a lot of kids at our wedding (who honestly were the most active dancers) and he did an awesome job playing songs that kept them happy. Overall he was an important part of making our wedding wonderful and would definitely recommend booking him!
DJ the Mood was a perfect addition to our wedding day and it wouldn't have been as magical as it was without him! He listened very thoroughly to our expectations and delivered above and beyond service! -Caitlin D.

Here's what I had to say when asked for some tips on how to pack a dance floor: Finding the right song to kick off a wedding reception can be tricky. During dinner hour I have survey the crowd, trying to find out if people want to ease into the dance hour or if they are ready to go full steam straight into dancing. If the guests want to ease into the dancing I’ll play a couple classic songs from the 70s or 90s that don’t necessarily scream “I gotta dance!!” but are songs virtually everyone knows and likes to tap their foot to. If it looks like the guests are ready to hit the floor on the first song I will usually play some fun 90s hip-hop. 90s hip hop makes 20-30 somethings feel nostalgic and makes the older crowd feel a bit hip feeling that they know songs that young folk are dancing to. Obviously this can change if the bride and groom request different genres of music, but it’s generally a good bet. In order to keep the flow of the night going I find that if I can mix together songs from a variety of genres, in ways that people don’t generally expect but are songs they enjoy, that keeps people on the dance floor. This is tricky since you have to beat match and find tracks that are in compatible keys, but finding inventive ways of mixing music is what makes for a great DJ!
