Testimonials

We just had our wedding this past weekend and Mike was our DJ. From the time we booked him all the way to the wedding day, Mike was great with communication. He was responsive to his emails and so easy to work with. He went above and beyond. He met us in person before the wedding to go over everything. He visited the venue a week before the wedding to scope things out since he had never been there before. We let him take the lead with what type of music to play, and he nailed it. Mike played a variety of genres and made everyone happy at the wedding. I would recommend him to anyone looking to book their DJ for their special day! The DJ plays a huge role on your wedding day, and we couldn’t have asked for a better one!

We hired DJ Mike for our November wedding at the Feast at Roundhill in Washingtonville, NY. Mike and Reno really made our whole wedding flow with wonderful music and great timings for all the important wedding tasks like cake cutting, toasts, etc.  They are both so professional and prepared I didn’t have one bit of nerves as to how the entertainment would go. Mike gave us a very detailed questionnaire beforehand to make sure we got what we wanted — and they really delivered.  They also did the music for our cocktail hour and came hours beforehand to make sure everything was setup the right way. The equipment looked great and sounded wonderful. They are good at what they do; not only did they give us excellent service for our wedding, but they did it with smiles and a warmhearted demeanor.

Our wedding was a month ago and I am still getting compliments on how great Mike was! All of my friends, all of my parents friends, and even our grandparents complimented us on our DJ choice… How do you even make that many generations of people happy at a party?!?! I don’t know. But Mike did it. He was super flexible with meeting times and was so supportive and helpful with all of our questions. The dance floor was full the whole night. Mike knew how to read the room and always played the right music for the right amount of time. Thanks Mike for making our wedding perfect! We would recommend you to anyone who asks!!

Mike, I can’t tell you how much we appreciate your talents, and your service as DJ at our daughters sweet 16. I lost count of how many people approached us, both at the party and afterwards, commenting on the quality of your work. You kept the party going to the end of the night. You had Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE dancing. Bravo. Anyone who asks, and some who don’t, I will be highly recommending your services.

– Elaine & Paul

DJ Mike was an excellent choice and made our wedding not only special but a BLAST. He’s very easy going, down to earth, and very professional. He really took the time to understand what we wanted and delivered – everyone was impressed with the music selection. He kept everyone moving on the dance floor from age 4 to 85 yrs. old! We highly recommend him.

– Janell & Brian

Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the Peekskill School Class of 1964 50th reunion a magical moment. My classmates are still talking about the musical memories. You made 50 years seem like yesterday. The 60’s never sounded better. It was PERFECT. We would recommend you to anyone, at any time. We wish you continued success in bringing happiness and joy to others.

– Barbara Katz

Mike was great! The music was perfect. He was incredible prior to our event, asking about our preferences for the music. He went out of his way to help out with the ceremony and cocktail hour music and the reception party was rocking the whole night! I’d recommend Mike for any occasion. What a great help, he alleviated a huge amount of stress from our big day.

– Beth & Jay Villeneuve

Mike was the DJ at our September 20, 2014 wedding celebration. It was not a traditional wedding and Mike was on the spot with all the nuances. He was challenged with guests ranging in age from 20 something to 60, 70 and even 80 something. He had everyone up and dancing to the music they knew and loved. We will definitely hire Mike again for our next party.

– Carol & Jim Plunkett

Mike, You did a fantastic job, and we were so happy, especially Kristen! Everyone came up to us and told us what a great DJ!! Thank you again for making Kristen’s Sweet 16 amazing!!

– Joanne B.

There are not words enough to express how happy we were that we found Mike to be our DJ for our wedding!  From the moment I spoke on the phone with him, I knew he was our guy.  We were looking for an easy-going, non-cheesy, flexible guy; and he is all that and more.  Our wedding reception rocked!!!  There was even a second dance floor formed that I didn’t even know about until the next morning.  Mike kept our reception moving smoothly so I didn’t have to worry about anything, and he worked great with the other vendors.  Did I mention that EVERYONE, young and old, was on the dance floor!!

As we know, wedding planning can be stressful, but Mike was very easy to get a hold of via phone or email, and always responded very promptly.  He was very helpful organizing the reception, making song recommendations, helping with the song list, and was willing to get any song we needed (we had some Irish set dancing).  He also helped set up the outdoor sound for the wedding ceremony, which was flawless.

If we got married again (I wish I could!) we would for sure call Mike!!  He’s amazing and keeps the party going late late LATE into the night!

Good Luck!

When you want to bring your ideas to life, Mike Donnelly is the DJ for the job! We hired Mike to be the DJ for our wedding in April 2014. I had a VERY specific list of music that I wanted to be played, and Mike was able to play it all! He helped to direct the layout of the music plan, he kept in touch with us throughout the entire planning process, and met with us a week before the wedding to discuss logistics, set up, and to meet in person. Our wedding was in my parents’ backyard, and Mike was able to set his equipment up so that he could play the cocktail music up on the deck, and then switch it over to the main dance floor on the lawn. It actually ended up raining that afternoon, and Mike was there to help transition the guests from the deck to the tent. He did an amazing job. I couldn’t have picked a better DJ!

– Holly & Phil Malfitani

Thank you very much Dj Mike! You helped make my Sweet Sixteen the “best party” that some people have ever been too– including myself!! You had the perfect music for a party, and it made people want to dance! Thanks again!!

– Taylor

We hired DJMD Entertainment for our wedding in October 2013. My family is Polish so my husband and I wanted to incorporate some Polish music into the mix. DJ Mike created the perfect blend of music to make everyone happy, including my husband who is a huge Metalhead and had a few requests of his own. Our reception ran perfectly, our guests were on the dance floor all night, and everyone had a fantastic time. DJ Mike was a true professional. I highly recommend DJMD Entertainment for your next special occasion!

– Justyna & Jessie Traynor

DJ Mikey D is the best DJ I have ever worked with. My husband and I hired Mike for our wedding this past June. He is professional, he listened to what we wanted as far as music for our special day. We told him we wanted a fun, happy party, and he delivered. Everyone was dancing and singing. The music was everything from Abba to Beyoncé!  I want to have another event just to hire Mike!!!

– Stacy & Jim Awe

You made the party! I have to say it was a long distance long shot when I went online and found you. I can’t believe how terrific you were! From working with me for months and pulling all the songs together and not taking a break (did you even get anything to eat???), the music was THE best part of the evening! Everyone told me how much they enjoyed having you there. The sound was great! You even wove the Yankee theme into everything and didn’t blast anyone’s eardrums!!! I felt as if I have known you for years… I can’t thank you enough! If anyone who wants to check you out further, please feel free to have them contact me!

– Cynthia & John – 25th Anniversary Party

I just wanted to thank you one more time for the amazing job you did at our wedding on Saturday! Everyone agreed with me that you were professional, upbeat, and discreet throughout the entire afternoon, and that you provided the perfect backdrop to a very special day. I especially loved your little twist on Tom’s garter removal!! You really brought him out of his shell!! I will be sure to provide a glowing review of your services whenever I have the opportunity!

– Stephanie & Thomas Welch

Thank you so very much for an awesome day/night wedding filled with music. You did it, you satisfied the music aficionado’s! So much fun, everyone had a blast. Thanks for all your hard work in making it happen. Look forward to seeing you in the future. The best!

– Jen & John Kiyak

The heartbeat of a party is the DJ and his music. Your sensitivity to volume was “spot on” and appreciated. Whether we danced by ourselves, with a partner, or in a group, every song you played brought out the “boogie” in each of us and enticed us to sing along, enthusiastically and loudly! Thank you for making the evening all the more memorable and fun. We will, with pleasure, recommend your services to people we know.

– Barbara Greenfield

Thank you for DJ-ing our Wedding! Everybody has been raving about the music! They keep asking if they can get a copy of your playlist! It was the perfect combo of young and old, and the Italian songs were PERFECT!! I was nervous that no one would dance, boy was I wrong!! Let me tell you, if we ever have another function, you are the first call we will make!!

– Adria & Luigi Crispino

We felt so comfortable with Mike from the first phone conversation. He took the time to get to know what music we and our guests liked. He even visited the catering hall beforehand to see our venue. With DJ Mikey D, we were in good hands and our guests feet did not stop moving the whole night. Thank you for making our night memorable! We highly recommend DJ Mikey D!!! Thanks again!

– Andrea and Don Pavone

DJ Mikey D did a phenomenal job at our daughter’s Sweet Sixteen Party!!! The variety of music he played was perfect and the party items that were handed out just added to all the fun the kids had. He accommodated all of our requests and was very professional. The kids just kept dancing and the night flew by!! My daughter chose some unusual songs for her candle ceremony and DJ Mike had them ready to go! Both the adults and teen-agers can’t stop talking about it. I wish we could do it again!

– Lorayne & Tom Castiglione

Mike you did an awesome job & made 45 13 year olds very very happy & as we all know making 13 year olds happy is quite an impossible feat!!!! Thank you and props to your awesomeness DJ’ing!

– Lisa Spadafora

We certainly had an awesome time at our wedding! Everyone told us what a great party it was and we heard several compliments about your DJ-ing skills – all of which were well deserved! You really made it a point to get every detail down and you took the time to visit the location in advance. I can’t tell you what it meant to us! I am keeping my ears open for anyone I know who may need a DJ and I’ll also keep in touch regarding any future parties! Thank you!

– Bill & Jean Marie Warncke

DJ Mike was a pleasure to work with from our first contact through to our event (our daughter’s bat mitzvah).
Mike solicited all the details of the event from us and made great suggestions that enhanced the flow of the event. He was well-prepared and it was evident that he cared about making our day just the way we wanted.

The DJ and MC services were fantastic. The music and games were perfectly timed, and MC Reno kept the kids up and dancing. We wanted the DJ to not overpower the event, allowing for non-dancing adults to talk with each other without being drowned out by the music and DJ Mike delivered on that promise. There is nothing we would have changed with our experience with Mike.

– Stacey Johnston

Mike, Thank you so very much for creating a great communion party for us yesterday! We loved how you highlighted Charles’ so much, you really made the day special for our son! So many of our guests have been calling and telling me how much they enjoyed your music! I gave your name out to two of our friends.

– Margaret Burt

You are the consummate professional and everyone just loves working with you. You are our go-to DJ and I am happy to have you add your excitement to our store events.

Thanks for all you do to make our store events extra special.
