Excellent Wedding DJ
We got married on August 17th, 2013. DJ Mystical Michael was phenomenal. We booked him about a year before the wedding. He made sure to contact us throughout the engagement to keep us on schedule with the reception music. He was familiar with our reception venue (The Manor in West Orange NJ) and made sure to provide them with all of the necessary paperwork. He played every single song we requested and made sure to ask us about any potential issues before they came up (made sure we had a signal in case of a bad combination of girl/boy catching the bouquet/garter, checked to see if we were ok with songs with mature subject matter etc.). He checked with us towards the end of the night to make sure there weren't any other songs we were hoping to have played.
He has high quality equipment. He does not use playlists for the entire night, but you wouldn't know based on the way the music plays. He figured out what type of music was getting people dancing and played it. We had multiple dinner courses with time to dance between courses, and he adjusted the music so that it flowed with the pace of the meal. We had people dancing the entire night, even though many of our guests don't typically dance.
Michael was very accommodating with our special requests (announcing my divorced parents separately, cutting into songs at unusual times etc.) and double checked everything with us once we got close to the wedding to make sure we had not changed our mind about anything. I could not have asked for a better DJ. We paid half of what other DJs were asking for and we got compliments throughout the evening and after our event about the quality of the music and DJ.
Great Outdoor wedding!
DJ Mystical Michael helped to make our wedding a success! Throughout the planning process he was very professional, helpful and had great suggestions. He made it easier for me to focus on other wedding related activities because I knew the music was taken care of. Michael and his assistant kept the energy up during the entire reception, despite the extreme unexpected heat wave (it was an outdoor reception). Thanks again!
DJ Michael is an excellent DJ with an amazing selection of any music you could want. His great personality and the enjoyment over his work with are only the icing on the cake!!! I would recommend him to anyone!!
Great Birthday Party!
We recently used Michael to DJ at a 50th birthday party. It was a bit a challenge as our guests are pretty diverse in terms of age, background and culture. I can only applaud the job Michael and his assistant did for us. We created a playlist that matched the tastes of our guests and Michael executed the playlist perfectly. His timing is great, he's easy to work with and would recommend him to anyone who is planning a wedding or party. The party was great and just about everyone danced the night away.
Very attentive to our needs and patient with our requests. Very kind to our guests as well.
Micheal recently provided services at our wedding and did a great job. His pre-event meeting was a very valuable part of the process and along with his information request, produced great results. Good job, good value, easy to work with, and provided the services we wanted. Highly recommended.
He truly wants to make your special day memorable
DJ Mystical Micheal did a terrific job at our Wedding. He is very knowledgeable about all types of music and had every song we requested. He is very professional and charges a fair price. He met with my wife and I two weeks before our wedding and went over every detail. He truly wants to make your special day memorable and he did just that for our wedding. Plus he has great sound equipment and cool lights!
Awesome Wedding DJ!
We were very pleased with our DJ services we received from you! You played everything we mentioned to you, and the other music you added fit perfectly with our tastes! Our guests really enjoyed the night and everyone was up on the dance floor at one point or another. You were professional, friendly, fun, and gave us a great deal ! You also didn't complain when my crazy cousin was doing back flips about an inch away from your equipment! (...Although I was having a heart attack!) We would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding DJ!
Thank you for such great music
DJ Mystical Michael did an incredible job at our outdoor wedding this past September. He was very professional and endlessly flexible, accommodating last-minute changes cheerfully and smoothly. He played all the music we wanted and nothing we didn\'t, took requests from our guests, and allowed everyone to have a good time.
We were specifically looking for a DJ that wouldn\'t try to make himself the center of attention, wouldn\'t try to control the evening, and DJ Mystical Michael was great in that regard. He kept things going with great music, made the announcements we asked him to, and on the couple occasions where he had to ad-lib, he did a great job.
Highly recommended - thanks again Michael!
(And, I had some reservations about the single speaker setup - we were outdoors in a relatively big tent - but the single Bose tower was more than enough sound)
Great Job! So Much Fun!
We recently booked DJ Michael for our wedding at the Tides. When we were first looking for a DJ we met with a fellow who owns a DJ company who said he was the \"House DJ\" at the Tides. He had lots of nice equipment. He claimed he was the only one who would be able to use the PA during cocktail hour. Then we met a few of his DJ\'s... and therein lies the problem! He was an older guy with a bunch of teenagers working for him, and I immediately sensed a swindle. I felt like we would not have personal service let alone a thoughtful Master of Ceremonies who would do announcements the right way. I was pretty nervous. Less than a year ago my friend was married and the DJ came from a big company and he was very young and kept making mistakes. I was afraid we\'d end up with some kid with the biggest day of our life who would mess the wedding up.
So when we first met DJ Michael it was a big relief. He came across as having lots of experience, and even better he has a great love of music and does it all himself. He didn\'t just shake our hands and take our cash. He sat down with us and over the course of a few months helped us craft an overall set list. On top of his music experience, he is a good announcer. So when the big day came, we were not dissapointed. He really did a great job. I do feel bad because it was an outdoor wedding, and without warning the clouds opened up and he got rained on but he and his assistant quickly gathered his speakers and PA system, moved it all inside. He really kept his cool, and in spite of nature throwing us all a curve ball, kept the ceremony going.
After the ceremony, the music during cocktail hour was excellent. Everyone kept commenting on how good the food and music was. Then during the sit down dinner and reception DJ Mystical Michael took to the microphone to make introductions, announcements, and kept everyone dancing. It was a great night. He even let one of my buddies plug a guitar into the PA and jam out during dinner. Not to mention that his DJ equipment especially the Bose system was more than enough to fill the space with music and keep the party going. I highly recommend DJ Michael if you want personal service, professional MC, and great music that exceeds other DJ services.
Thank You for Tim
We contacted DJ Mystical Michael for our wedding and he himself was already booked for our date. He told us this immediately and offered to give us a discount for one of the other DJs he has in his team. And Tim was absolutely perfect! He was awesome and very knowledgeable because I had no idea what needed to be done all night. Thank you!
We hired DJ Mystical Michael for our wedding on Memorial Day Weekend. He was very professional and customer focused. In our pre-wedding meeting, he guided us through our song selection and walked us through the day\'s events. His song recommendations and vision for the event were spot on.
DJ Mystical Michael understands that the day is about the couple, and not about him. He is not pretentious and does not try to steal the show or make himself the center of attention.
Everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding, we even made a number of last minute changes to the ceremony, and reception which he handled perfectly in stride. DJ Mystical Michael had Bose equipment and just about every song in existence. He was a wonderful addition to our special day.
A Good Time
Hi Michael, you did such a wonderful job on last Saturday night and all my friends enjoyed the party. not just a professional and you are so nice and so considerate. Thank you...
Joey and I were chatting the other night and we both said we wanted to reach out to you to let you know that we were so pleased with your services. You were fantastic and it was a real pleasure working with you through the entire process. Joey and I will sit down within the next few nights and provide feedback.
Thank you again – it was a wonderful evening!
Michael was very accommodating with all of our demands and changes. He followed our wished to the letter and was very receptive. There were so many details that we almost forgot and would have definitely missed if it was not for Michael. He made our overall wedding experience memorable. It was the dream wedding that we hoped for and the fairy tale that we never imagined we would have. Thank you Michael for all of your help and thanks for that special first dance song ;)
Thanks for our wedding
I knew from our first meeting with DJ Michael that he was the DJ for us. His upbeat and lively spirit were so nicely aligned with his down to earth and approachable manner. He is knowledgeable, professional and passionate and was right on point with us every step of the way. He was timely with follow ups and responding to our requests, quick to offer suggestions or possibilities based on experience and was always available to discuss ideas and make changes. One can easily sense that Michael truly loves what he does - for him, it's not just a side gig.
At the wedding, DJ Michael and his assistant were on time, set-up and ready to go leaving us to focus only on getting married. They even handled having to play in two locations without a hitch (outdoor ceremony, indoor reception.) He was great, the music was great and our friends and family danced all night long!
Thank you so much for checking in to see how the night went. We had a BLAST! My mother was genuinely surprised and she enjoyed every minute of it.
Bryant did a TERRIFIC job! He was so professional and went out of his way to make sure my mom was enjoying herself. I would LOVE to write a review for you on Yelp! because I can honestly say I\'d recommend you and Bryant to anyone. So, so, so much fun!
BOOK THESE GUYS NOW!!!!
Mike and his colleague, Tim, did an AMAZING job at our wedding. They were very responsive, flexible when we asked for additional services, and very reasonable price-wise. Tim was our DJ because Mike was unavailable and Tim did an excellent job producing our event. He even made last-minute adjustments to our original program (since we were running late) that preserved the flow of the event. He kept everyone on the dance floor from beginning till last call. BOOK THESE GUYS NOW!!!!
Good Wedding DJ
When our DJ canceled six weeks before our wedding we were really upset since it was a holiday weekend. All DJ's were either booked or out of our price point. When we found Michael and talked to him we were instantly reassured. He was very organized with a calm demeanor. At the wedding he played all the music we wanted to hear and all the music the guests requested. He was great!
Thank You Michael
DJ Michael was very good at entertaining our guests. He was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. He also kept me on my toes about getting things that were needed to be done with him because i would get sidetracked pretty easily with arranging our wedding activities. I would recommend DJ Michael to anyone.
Thanks DJ Mystical Michael
DJ Mystical Michael was awesome! We were going to just run an ipod/computer songlist that our guest's could add to, but out of curiosity, I googled DJ's in the area. The first thing I came across was an earlier Yelp review of Michael that explained our situation exactly... I looked up his website and was hooked. There was an article he wrote on why not to use an ipod and he showed us why during the wedding. After writing him for a quote and getting a quick and friendly response, we met once, emailed a bunch and he rocked it! There were even some songs he pulled out during the wedding that I mentioned in passing and I thought 'how did he know/remember?" We barely stopped dancing the whole night and our guests loved him too!
Once I saw his site I said 'we don't have to look any further' and we did out of curiosity, but nothing out there compared. I don't know what we would have done without him!
Thanks DJ Mystical Michael!
Michael regularly DJs at our all-volunteer Barefoot Boogie in New York City. He weaves a delicious mix that inspires creative, fun, energized and just all-out-funky dancing! I especially appreciate how he builds the tempos -- so instead of dancing to one groove to the point of tedium, you flow up and down in waves from looser, exploratory dancing to full-on booty shakin'. His tastes are broad, with delightful old favorites and lots of new surprises, and his attunement to what's going on out there on the dance floor is deep.
Big Thank you!
DJ Mystical Michael did an outstanding job at a children's fundraiser I recently planned and hosted.
I was doing everything on my own and was crazy with little details. DJ Mystical Michael took away the stress of worrying about music and entertainment. He responded to an ad I posted on Craigslist and immediately gave me all the information I needed, before I even had to ask. Everytime I sent him an e-mail with a question or concern, he responded promptly and put me back at ease.
Once the day of the event arrived he did a great job! He was on time, quick with set up, provided me with everything I need (including mics for our riffle drawing) and played music that got the kids excited and jumping around - the adults enjoyed it too!
DJ Mystical Michael was excellent and supported a great cause with enthusiasm (Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation). I would definitely recommend him to others as well as hire him for my next event!!!
Thanks for Fun Fundraiser
Thanks so much for another awesome display of your DJ skills! We love having you! Always grateful!
Micheal, thanks for all your help making the party a success! Feel free to use me as a referral.
