We chose Bolt Entertainment as the DJ at our reception and for the music at our ceremony. Mike was amazing. He was very patient and helpful through out our music selections. On the day of our wedding we could not have asked for a better experience from him. He was beyond helpful and made sure the timing of everything at our reception was perfect. We received multiple compliments from family and friends about how impressed they were with his service. I like how he even wore a watermelon pink dress shirt to match with our wedding colors. I highly recommend Mike and Bolt Entertainment for any event!

To say that Mike and his crew from Bolt Entertainment were instrumental in the success of our wedding would be an understatement! Throughout the entire process Mike was so helpful to this couple trying to do the whole wedding planning thing on our own!
From the first meeting it was so evident how professional, organized, and down to earth Mike is. Mike came prepared with several different options for DJ and lighting services.
After we booked Bolt Entertainment for our Wedding, Mike was what kept us on track for the rest of the planning. The easy to use planning website through Bolt helped us organize our schedule, select songs throughout the entire evening, and get a general feel for how the day would go.
Besides having the event planning site at our fingertips, Mike was easy to get in touch with through the entire process via e-mail, phone, and meeting. Mike met with us again prior to the wedding day at our venue to get a feel for lighting and finalizing details.
On the day of is where Mike and his team really shined! Mike was so efficient setting up the lighting and the sound system, while the rest of us frantically got the space ready for the ceremony and reception.
Mike worked seamlessly with the other vendors to organize the entire evening. Mike organized the wedding party prior to the ceremony, kept guests entertained throughout cocktail hour, and maintained great energy throughout the reception and dance to make sure everyone was having a good time. In addition to the awesome DJ-ing throughout the night the lighting of the space transformed a blank canvas into a stunningly beautiful venue!
I wish that I could put down into words how much we appreciated Mike and his team, because I don't feel like this review gives him justice! But to help put Mike's skills into perspective, our venue has requested the contact information for Bolt to add him to their preferred vendors list because of how impressed they were!

From the first moment I met Mike, I knew that he would be the perfect DJ for my big day. Me and my husband were both impressed with how knowledgeable and professional he was each time we met with him. Not only was he available by phone and email anytime I needed, he truly went above and beyond to make sure that my wedding went off without a hitch. Do not hesitate to hire Mike for your big day or party, he is amazing.

Mike and his assistant were FANTASTIC to start off. I heard horror stories and have been to a few wedding where the DJ's were awkward and they didn't really know how to connect with the crowd and always needed to be reminded to do the next thing or when to start or stop an even, i.e. cake cutting, dinner, first dance, etc. When we met Mike, we had just gotten engaged and he was our very first vendor we got to meet. Immediately I knew I could trust him. Having a conversation with him was easy and effortless, he understood exactly the direction we wanted to take with our wedding based on what we told him we hoped for. If Mike wasn't at my wedding, I would have lost my mind. Not only was he an AMAZING DJ but he took care of my husband and I throughout the night. From helping us figuring out where the catering company was (he called on behalf of us so we could enjoy ourselves) to letting us know when cake cutting would commence, to offering to get us Starbucks and keeping a drink in our hand. We had many compliments throughout the night on what a great job he and his assistant did and the music was the best! I would definitely recommend Bolt Entertainment to anyone looking for someone that you know will not only meet your expectations on your wedding day, but exceed them. Love you guys!!

This DJ did a phenomenal job. We were able to choose our own songs and pictures for all of the reception and video. He was always prompt in responding to phone calls or emails sometimes even the same day. His attention to detail was reassuring. He was always quick to address any concerns and His up lighting made the room glow like a magical place! It really was amazing! I would defiantly recommend him to anyone that has an occasion they want to turn out really special.

I had the pleasure of having Bolt Entertainment as my wedding vendor. Mike and Andy are amazing! They took care of everything for me and brought my wedding too the next level. When planning my wedding Bolt Ent was the one vendor we never had to worry about. Mike met with us on music, gave us ideas and was very honest with me about my idea. Their website is extremely easy to use and it helped keep me organized for the entire wedding.
During the wedding weekend they were there for the rehearsal because they wanted to make sure they knew what was going on. They setup the love story, up lighting and all the other wonderful add on options they have. My wedding was outside in the middle of nowhere. They took this small ranch backyard and turned it into a magical and impressive venue. Mike made sure to keep us on track as far as timing and everything went according to plan on the timeline. He dressed to match the occasion and was extremely professional. It was really important to me that everyone at the wedding has a great time and dances all night. Mike made that happen. From the minute we opened the dance floor to when we closed up for the night the dance floor was packed. We got numerous comments on how awesome the DJ and music was. He was able to get people who don't like country music on the dance floor. It was an unforgettable wedding and Mike played a huge role in that.
I also gave him a lot of freedom on what music to play. For a lot of things I told him to play whatever he wanted. I mean, he is the expert right? Well, he definitely proved that he was. The music he chose was perfect for every occasion and he did a stand up job playing things for all types of people.
During the ceremony we had wireless mics, which looks very classy for pictures instead of handing a giant microphone back n forth.
Mike was a joy to work with and absolutely loves his job. Music is and art and Mike has mastered it. Thanks again for such an unforgettable evening!

Bolt Entertainment is phenomenal in all respects! The services provided were top-notch, we especially loved the games during the reception and the monogram Mike and his team put together for us. I would highly recommend Bolt to my friends and family. Bolt is the cream of the crop when it comes to wedding DJ's, no one else comes close. We are so happy that we chose Bolt for our wedding - you should too! They did everything right!

I have worked in the service industry myself for the past 24 years. As a result, I have HIGH expectations of any vendor that I would ask to participate in my wedding day. The experience with Mike, Andy and Sam from Bolt Entertainment surpassed anything that I had previously imagined.
Mike performed multiple roles during the reception. He basically commanded the event and served as the master of ceremonies. When the caterer fell behind schedule, Mike took control and revised the events of the evening with the needs of our guests in mind. He pushed the caterer to keep up, allowing us to enjoy our guests and focus on the magic of the night. We had many kids in attendance and Mike had activities planned to keep them involved. It's usually very hard for me to let go and trust, but I knew within five minutes of entering the reception that the event was in great hands. We received dozens of comments during the event about how impressive Mike's services were. Likeable, engaging, upbeat and full of happiness for our union, he was the key factor in making the night the great success it was.
I could go on and on about the men of Bolt Entertainment. All I will say in closing is that if you are in search of a professional who will give 200% to make your event a success, than look no further. You will be blown away just like we were... I guarantee it.
