Mike did the music for our ceremony and reception was incredible. He was able to take the songs we requested and create a playlist that was really amazing. The dance floor was packed the entire time! He also had no problem switching it up mid-dance party when we asked for songs that weren't on our original list.

DJ Michael O'Neill is top-notch!

My wife and I are particular about the music that we listen to - we're not really top-40 hits kind of people. We wanted our wedding playlist to move with the theme of the night: songs from Paul Simon, Arcade Fire, and Prince during cocktails and dinner; and Motown classics, Mackelmore and 90s hip-hop to keep the dance party going through the night.

Mike was a real professional throughout all of the planning of our reception - and most importantly, very punctual - never once did I wait more than an hour for a response from an email.

Mike was incredibly easy to work with in regard to playlist planning - he's not just a guy with some high-end audio equipment, hes a music lover, and knows what songs work and what songs don't. If you want people dancing at your ceremony, or if you're worried about getting the grandmas and grandpas out on the dance floor, Mike knows how to do it!

Unfortunately, I don't plan on getting married again, but if I was, I'd book Mike again in a heartbeat!

I was pretty laid back about every part of my wedding except the music. Michael had by far the hardest job of anyone at the wedding and he executed it flawlessly. I had a very specific cocktail hour list, in addition to very specific introductions & music for the introductions, which required some specific editing and transitions. He did it all, never once was put out or complained about it, and gave me the absolute perfect soundtrack to our wedding. The guests raved about his music selections and people were crowded on the dance floor until the very last song. All of our guests said they can't remember the last time they danced so much. He kept the night running smoothly and coordinated with the caterer to make sure things moved apace (I didn't have a wedding coordinator, so it was DJ Michael & the caterer who did it all!) In the weeks leading up to the wedding, non-wedding life stuff got very stressful and just the tone of his emails totally changed my mindset and got me excited for my own wedding. You won't find a better DJ or a better price. So, hire him, then tip him, because he'll give you a better night than you could have imagined.

We loved Michael! From the initial meeting to the last song, Michael went above and beyond to make sure we had exactly what we wanted for music during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our ceremony and reception was at the Portsmouth Country Club and he was able to provide ceremony music outside, cocktail hour music in the lower level patio, and reception music upstairs in the ballroom.

He is an excellent MC- Michael helped the whole wedding party (including a frazzled bride and groom at times!) throughout the day with professionalism.

His ability to get a crowd dancing and maintain a fun energy is why I would recommend him to any bride and groom. Many of our guests complimented the DJ and his choice of music throughout the night. The last few songs he had everyone on the dance floor! He will give you complete autonomy of your playlist if you so chose; however we chose to let Michael take the reigns on the music and he did not disappoint!

Michael was recently our DJ at our wedding at the Barn at Gibbett Hill in Groton,MA. We could not have been happier with our decision to have him DJ our wedding! He was professional, classy and a pleasure to work with. He kept the guests dancing all night, and my husband and I never left the dance floor. He played all of our requests, and it's clear he knows what he's doing. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a phenomenal DJ for their wedding!

Michael was SUCH AN AMAZING DJ.

Michael came recommended to me by a friend who had attended her friend’s wedding, and both my husband and I could not have been happier with our choice. Michael was an extraordinary DJ and he kept the party going all night – I don’t think the dance floor emptied once! He was extremely professional and didn’t do any gimmicky stuff to draw attention to himself (long winded introductions, cheesy games/songs, etc) – he made sure the night was about both my husband and I. He met with us beforehand to go over song requests for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and was sure to get our somewhat unique song requests for the night. Beyond the few songs we requested (and the few we were dead set against) we just let Michael do his thing and pick the music himself and we could not have been more pleased - he knew exactly what song to play next and how to keep the energy up. My biggest fear for my wedding was having an empty dance floor…his advice to me was “the crowd goes where the bride goes – if you’re on the dance floor, they will be too” and he could not have been more right – I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun dancing in my entire life. Seriously.

Michael also provided our uplighting and acted as our wedding coordinator and did a fantastic job at these two tasks as well.

Our wedding could not have been more perfect, and we owe a lot of that to Michael – we could not recommend him enough!

Michael was the DJ at our Cambridge Muliticultural Arts Center wedding this Fall and he was the best decision we made throughout the entire planning process. The dance floor was packed the entire night with our guests dancing to song after song of awesomeness. He played all of our requested songs and all of the songs that he chose on his own were spot on. So many guests (young and old) came up to me during the night to tell me that the playlist was incredible.
More importantly, Michael knows his stuff. Like all brides, I was a little nervous about how the night would go. I didn't have a wedding planner to make sure everything flowed perfectly so I relied a lot on creating a schedule beforehand and making sure the vendors were all in agreement. You may not expect a DJ to have a big role in the logistics of the evening, but they certainly do. From the cocktail hour, to dinner, to the toasts, cake cutting, and parent dances, Michael's experience shines during weddings and he knows how to make the night pass seamlessly. We started planning with him almost a year and half before our wedding day and he was by far the most responsive and nicest vendor we worked with. He even edited our first dance song for us. Once he knew what our ideas were for our event, he reassured us not to worry about anything and he executed every detail perfectly.
If you need a DJ, Michael is your guy. The reviews could not be more accurate; he is incredible and deserves every single one of these accolades.

My husband and I could not have picked a better DJ for our wedding at Zorvino Vineyards this fall! Michael played all of our requests, and all of the songs he chose to play on his own were perfect. Our dance floor was packed the entire night. In fact, the bartenders at Zorvino told my parents at the end of the night that our wedding was the best Sunday night wedding they've ever seen, and they attributed this to the fact that people were up and dancing throughout the entire event! Something else that I really appreciated about Michael was that any time a guest requested a song, he made sure to find either my husband or I first to ask if it was okay. We were his number one priority the entire night.

Aside from Michael playing a big role in making sure our wedding reception was the party we wanted, he was so helpful and accommodating through our planning process. My family had some very specific/particular requests when it came to playing some more of the traditional Greek songs for Greek dances, and Michael spent a lot of time going over this with us to make sure he got it right. One of my favorite parts of the entire wedding was looking around and seeing literally every guest up on the dance floor trying to Greek dance with my family!

Finally, Michael was very knowledgeable with his recommendations for other aspects besides just songs - parent dances, cutting the cake, how much time to allot for different parts of the night, etc.

I can't say enough amazing things about our experience with Michael as our wedding DJ. Book him now before others do!

Absolutely wonderful! We had Patrick McIntyre as our DJ and he was so amazing to work with. He was responsive by email from the time we hired him months before the wedding, and was available to talk as much as needed the week of the wedding. He worked with our musicians to set them up as we discussed, and was a consistent but invisible presence at the wedding! I didn't worry about set up at all thanks to Patrick. He also put on a really great dance party, making sure to incorporate our style while also playing a bunch of fan favorites. He was our favorite vendor! I definitely recommend Patrick, or any of the DJs that work for Michael's company. Phenomenal service and great people.
