Providence DJ Mystical Michael Featured on Bridal Guide

Aside

DJ Mystical Michael was featured yesterday on Bridal Guide Wedding Tip of the Day.

Tip of the Day: Looking forward to dancing the Hora, the Greek money dance or any other customary rites as a nod to your heritage? Hire wedding DJs that are familiar with your culture and background.

“Be clear in what you are requesting from your vendors — don’t automatically assume that they know what you mean,” says Michael Swerdloff, aka DJ Mystical Michael. This means providing examples of must-have songs as well as those you’d rather skip. Also, keep in mind that in order to be as inclusive as possible, you’ll want to have them play tunes that appeal to a broad audience, too.

How To Hire Your Rhode Island Wedding DJ

First Rhode Island DJ Wedding Season

I am so excited first my first Rhode Island DJ wedding season. I moved to Providence this past October from the New Jersey and New York City area. All winter I was busy on the Internet promoting and marketing my business for Rhode Island and Massachusetts weddings, parties and events. As most of you know, I’ve been a DJ for a very long time. Each region of the country has its own personality and characteristics, Rhode Island and Massachusetts are no different. It has been really fun for me getting to know many of you as you have called and written me inquiring about being the DJ at your wedding. I have a full season booked of weddings, a new staff hired and trained and made some connections to some excellent photographers in the area. Most of all, I’ve gotten to know southern New England and all of you.

I Love Rhode Island DJ Weddings

I love weddings. I recognize that is very corny, but that does not mean it is not true. I love everything about weddings, the ceremony, cocktail hour, the introductions of the bride and groom and bridal party, the traditional dances and of course, all the fun that comes along with a reception of great music and fun people dancing and having a great time. I love the excitement and energy that comes with every wedding. Friends and family celebrating with you, your special day, but more importantly, a significant beginning to a new chapter in your life. We celebrate and have fun at the event, but we all know the event is not really the big deal, the wedding ceremony and reception continue the process that started when you first met and eventually fell in love.

DJ Music Chart Featuring A Great Big World

A Great Big World is an American two-member musical group from New York made up of singers and songwriters Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino and signed to Epic Records. The group is best known for their singles “This Is The New Year” which was performed by the cast in an episode of Glee and reaching the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 Chart in May 2013 and by their international hit “Say Something” particularly after recording it as a duet collaboration with Christina Aguilera.

The group went on national tour and performed as the openers for Ingrid MichaelsonMatthew Morrison (Glee), and Five For Fighting. The group re-branded themselves in 2012 which is when they took the official name A Great Big World. They released a six-song EP after obtaining funding from the crowdsource funding website Kickstarter. In 2013, the group’s song This Is The New Year was performed by the cast in an episode of Glee. The song was also licensed to various television networks and was used as the theme song for MTV’s I Used to Be Fat as well as being featured on The Amazing RaceESPNOne Tree Hill, and Good Morning America.

Say Something” is a song by American pop duo A Great Big World, released as the lead-single from their debut album, Is There Anybody Out There? (2013). Originally being released as a solo single from band member Ian Axel‘s solo album This Is the New Year in 2011, the song was released as a single by the band on September 3, 2013, via Epic Records. Following its usage on American reality TV show So You Think You Can Dance, the track gained attention from singer Christina Aguilera, who wanted to be featured on the song. Quickly afterwards, Aguilera appeared on the re-recorded version of “Say Something”, released on November 4, 2013.

Composed by Ian Axel, Chad Vaccarino and Mike Campbell, “Say Something” is a downtempo indie pop piano ballad which talks about a breakup, where the lover is implored to make a statement that could potentially reverse plans, with the singers expressing humility, sadness and regret. In the single version with Aguilera, she plays a ghost of the lover to whom the song is addressed as she traces the steps of the lead vocal. The song was critically praised for its powerful lyrics, the emotional composition and Aguilera’s vocal delivery.

“Say Something” did not sell significantly until the re-recorded version was available; it debuted at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after A Great Big World and Aguilera performed the song on The Voice, while eventually peaking at number 4. It also topped the Australian charts, becoming their first number-one single (and Aguilera’s third) and reached the top-ten in most countries. A music video was released on November 19, 2013. It features the trio singing as people “act out the heartbreaking lyrics.” To further promote “Say Something”, A Great Big World performed the track on The Voice and at the American Music Awards of 2013 with Aguilera.
