Next to none

We had Mike as our DJ for our wedding in March. From our first pre-wedding call we knew we had picked the best of the best. He is so much more than a DJ, helped with handing out confetti, organising photos, making necessary announcements and making sure my husband and I were happy with the things he was doing.
He made all of our room entrances incredible, guests waving napkins, advice cards and after our meal he had us playing Mr & Mrs.

Incredible set up and music. Mike is an altogether lovely man and extremely good at what he does - would definitely use him for any other events should I have them.

Highly recommend!

A real find

Hiring Mike to be our wedding DJ was a very easy decision. There is a reason he’s received the accolades he has. Right from our first meeting he was easy to deal with, and genuinely interested in understanding what a great party looked like for us. His App made it easy for us to consider and communicate what we wanted him to play, and he was brilliant at advising around how we might blend different genres of music to suit all types and taste. He even helped us “orchestrate” our first dance. We’re not ones for “cheese”, nor anything overly formal and Mike got that. The package we chose included a selfie machine which was a real hit and has provided us with some fabulous mementoes. I would have absolutely zero hesitation in recommending Mike’s services– he will ensure a wedding party to remember. We have had SO many compliments. Thank you, Mike!

The best dj!

WOW! Just wow!

Mike exceeded all our expectations, assignment well and truly understood.

He was such calming presence all day, and made it so much easier for my partner and I to be present with our guests, knowing you would put us where we needed to be.

The DJ set was absolutely epic and he smashed it! I did not want to leave the dance floor and I don’t think any of our guests did either.

Mike is absolutely incredible at what he does, and we cannot recommend him highly enough!

Thank you Mike for making my dance floor wedding dreams come true

Best wedding DJ around!

Mike is so much more than just a wedding DJ! His passion and attention to detail made our wedding truly unforgettable. He was incredibly helpful during the planning process and really made sure that all the music was perfectly tailored to us and the vibe we wanted to create. He is amazing as an MC, worked alongside our venue to make sure the day ran completely smoothly, and our guests loved his energy (and the fun additional details like Mr and Mrs game and couples advice cards!). Thanks to Mike we didn't have to worry at all and could fully immerse ourselves in enjoying our day. The music in the evening had everyone on the dance floor for hours, Mike is a genius at knowing what works and how to keep the energy going all night long! Thank you so much Mike!

Halloween Wedding

Mike was our Dj for our wedding and all I can say is wow. We got married on Halloween and Mike went above and beyond with not only our theme but as well with our playlist ideas!

Mike has great energy and was such a support as well on our big day. He really helps run the show and he does it with a huge smile on his face. You can tell this man loves what he does and his passion for his work is unparalleled!

Mike really help us make our day special and all my guests loved him and his energy. All my guests have said to me after the wedding how fun and energetic Mike is and they all loved him!

Can’t thank Mike enough for everything he did to make our day amazing. From helping coordinate guests for photos, keeping guests entertained as well as making some last minute changes on the fly which shows the level of professionalism of his work!

Once again, thank you so much Mike! Definitely recommend and definitely would rebook in a heart beat!

The perfect MC and DJ

Mike was amazing in the build up to and throughout our big day. Not only did he keep things running smoothly and on time, he also put on an brilliant set in the evening, integrating both our music tastes as well as putting his own spin on it - our guests were crying out for more at the end! Mike also gave us some great general wedding advice in the months prior, which really came in handy.

Would thoroughly recommend to anyone! Cheers Mike

Legendary DJ

Mike is an amazing and incredibly talented DJ! After some uninspiring meetings with other DJs, we were blown away and energised after our initial meeting with Mike and came away excited for our big day! Mike was incredibly responsive and professional throughout the planning process and gave us some brilliant hints and tips for other elements of the wedding from his wealth of experience. On the day itself, Mike was MC and DJ so was with us for the whole day and really kept things flowing, always checking in if there was anything we needed. The Mr & Mrs game was brilliant fun during the wedding breakfast and the music from start to finish was on point. As for the party itself, it was epic and Mike really knows how to read a room and play music to accommodate everyone's tastes. Mike really made the day memorable for which we will always be grateful. We could not recommend him enough.

The most amazing memories made

Would recommend Mike to everyone, from the moment we reached out to him to DJ at our wedding to the big day, Mike was very helpful & gave good advice when it came to getting everyone engaged in the evening entertainment. Mike played everything we asked and went above & beyond with any requests that came his way on the night.
We appreciate everything Mike done, great set up, made our evening & most importantly ensured our family & friends made the most special memories together.
Thank you Mike.

Kristen & Dan

We knew we had to have DJ Mike before even booking our venue. From booking & first online meeting Mike offered such a personal tailored service to really make your day all about you which was amazing. Having Mike as our Master of ceremonies during the day as well as the evening meant we could fully relax and know that everything was under control. Mike is simply amazing and we would 100% recommend him for any event. Our day went without any issues and we can’t thank him enough for the level of service he provided before and during the wedding which went above & beyond the music. Thank you for making our wedding day amazing Mike!

Most incredible DJ!!

I honestly don’t know where to begin with Mike! When we started looking for a music supplier for our wedding we thought they would just be someone to play music in the evening but Mike was SO much more than that. From our first meeting with Mike he was incredibly enthusiastic and his passion just shone through. He came across so genuinely excited for our wedding with so much thought and attention to detail, he gave us hours of his time before we had even booked! We ended up booking Mike for our whole day and it’s the best thing we did.

We had a meeting with Mike in person a couple of months before the wedding and he was very personable, asked us lots of questions and listened to exactly what we wanted. Mike had an app which was super easy to use where we were able to input all information about our day, from all our song requests, to information about our bridal/grooms party, to timings of the day etc.

Mike was nothing short of amazing on our wedding day as our MC and DJ, he helped the whole day run so smoothly and we are still receiving compliments about him from our guests weeks on. The dance floor was completely full all evening, he absolutely smashed the song choices and it was just an incredible vibe all evening, definitely up there with our favourite moment of the day. Mike also took lots of short video clips throughout our day which he has since shared with me and we have absolutely loved watching them all back and remembering the day.

Thank you so much Mike, we genuinely could not recommend you any higher!!

Great wedding DJ!

We are so glad we chose Mike. We had the all day package, so had him as MC plus DJing in the evening. He kept everything on track and running smoothly, played great tunes in the evening and was just a really great person to have there on the day. He has a natural way of putting people at ease and alleviating nerves. Thank you so much Mike.

He worked closely with us to curate a playlist that perfectly reflected our taste, incorporating our favorite songs and genres seamlessly into the mix.

On the big day, his passion for his craft was palpable. He had a way of energizing the crowd and keeping the dance floor alive throughout the entire event. His transitions were flawless, and he managed to strike the perfect balance between high-energy moments and more intimate ones, ensuring that everyone was engaged and having a fantastic time.

Beyond his exceptional talent as a DJ, his professionalism and communication were top-notch.

Best DJ you'll ever meet!!

Mike provided an excellent service from booking to that final song where nobody wanted to leave the dancefloor. On our first meeting with Mike we knew he was going to be something different our guests wouldn't have seen before and he understood the vibe and music we wanted to go, personalising it completely to us! Such a professional set-up, love the Vibo app and ability to link it to Spotify, brilliant MC throughout the day and engaged amazingly with our guests, even taking some great snapshot videos and pictures which he shared with us. 100% would recommend - even if my husband won the DJ battle vote on Instagram!!

Everyone needs a Mike for their wedding!

We found Mike through our wedding venues Instagram, we loved the look of the cool neon sign across in front of the DJ decks. We met with Mike over Zoom and knew he would be the right DJ for us. We still had concerns about the running of the day so it was great to find out that Mike could also be our MC, we snapped him up for our wedding date instantly! After the first consult, we immediately knew Mike would be our DJ.

We used Mike’s app and had a meeting with him prior to the wedding day. Mike tailored every aspect of the day to be perfect and kept everything on track, he even helped us set up a zoom call for the ceremony with relatives who were unable to make it. so that all we had to worry about was enjoying ourselves and the best man’s speech.

We can’t recommend Mike highly enough and all of the guests commented about how exceptional he was. His service is way over and above what you’d ever expect. Thank you so much for all you did for us.
