I’ve been performing professionally since age 11 and a professional wedding DJ for the last 15 years, so without a doubt I’m very comfortable in front of any audience and especially find weddings to be my forte’ and most enjoyable for me. I’ll strive to make your day absolutely perfect and professional without that added cheese factor with which I truly understand is one the deepest concerns with most B&G's and that’s why I insist on at least two or more personal meetings before hand, leading up to the week before your event to discuss the final details, also allowing us to get to know each other better so there is a more comfortable and personal dialog between us.

Remember, not only am I your DJ, but even more importantly, I am also your Master of Ceremony keeping all your plans on schedule and moving along in a timely and festive fashion. It’s very important to me that you are able to relax and let the professionals handle all the details you’ve worked so hard to organize, which in turn allows you and your fiancé to enjoy every cherished moment with the one and ones you love without the stress of wondering who’s running the show or worrying about what’s next.

As far as sound equipment, I use only the latest and highest quality pro audio and lighting gear available, guaranteeing your first dance and all the music you’ve chosen sounds crystal clear throughout the evening, never dull or harsh. I’m also very well equipped with an extensive library of over 60,000 songs to cover all styles and decades of music, including my weekly shipment of the latest Top 40, Rock, Hip Hop, Dance, & Country keeping me absolutely up to date with the latest trends.

I would love the opportunity to sit down with you and lay out what I think is needed to make your wedding celebration a stress free success! Remember it’s not only the music, but the DJ/MC you choose whether or not your celebration comes alive! Read less

Michael is hands down the best choice for a DJ/MC. We are so grateful our venue had him as a preferred vendor, and that we were able to secure him for our day. Upon our first conversation with him, we know he was a total professional who absolutely knew what he was talking about, and clearly cares about the couples he works with. From day 1, we were in constant communication, which was great for us since we were planning our wedding from out of state. His online planning tool makes it really easy to choose your must-plays and the songs that coincide with the special moments of the ceremony and reception. He was always open to meet with us in person when we were in town and made the times work with our schedule. He truly wants to know and understand each couple and all the players in the wedding to make it a smoothe day for everyone involved. He built our timeline for us, so we really didn't even have to think about it, but he was receptive to all our tweaks and changes, so we were able to build the perfect day together. On the day of, everything was flawless. Michael played all the right songs when they were meant to be played, and once the dance floor was open, nobody got off of it (including me...which led to a lot of sweat...but I digress). He also threw in a lot of cool props that we didn't know he was going to! Glow sticks and necklaces, light up glasses, etc. Everyone had an absolute blast and it was in large part to Michael. Would 100% recommend him to anyone who asks me! Do yourself a favor and book him ASAP so you don't miss out!

Hands down Michael was the best DJ I've seen at any event in my life! Plan your event around his schedule and you'll never regret you did!
We booked him for our 5/15/16 wedding and he met with us numerous times during the months prior to our wedding for several hours each in order to piece together every aspect of our ceremony and reception. During the ceremony he was flawless and at the reception he kept the party going and the audience engaged the whole night! From his professionalism to the sound to the lighting he was amazing! All our guests said hands down the best wedding ever and we owe Michael the world for all his time and efforts!!

I cannot even express in words how absolutely amazing this DJ is. We booked Michael based on being a preferred vendor at our Wedding Venue, and they definitely know what they're talking about. We weren't aware how instrumental the DJ would be in our wedding. In meeting with Michael, it became obvious that he was going to run the show, and boy was it quite a show! I have received so many complements on how fun our wedding was and what an awesome DJ we had. I didn't have to think about a thing, he led the way the entire night and the dance floor was NEVER empty, which was one of my concerns when selecting a DJ. I told Michael I wanted people to have fun, and he made sure it happened! He was very patient when we couldn't make up our minds about what song for this or that moment, and he had some really suggestions that we used and they were awesome! If you want a great DJ and a wedding/event that you and your guests will remember, this is your guy!

I feel sorry for anyone who didn't have Michael as their wedding DJ!!! Working with Michael McNeil of Ovation Entertainment was an absolute pleasure.

My husband and I got married at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in March 2016. From our first consultation, Michael was attentive, organized, available, friendly, and FUN! Over the course of our FIVE planning meetings, Michael was not only able to create a thorough wedding day timeline and a fun and unique wedding playlist....he also took the time to get to know us as a couple. He personalized our wedding down to every entertainment detail. From our ceremony music to the last dance of the night...he did an amazing job at guiding us in the right direction, but also incorporating songs/themes that we wanted.

Michael is very organized and is a BUILT-IN WEDDING COORDINATOR! He created a very detailed wedding timeline for us, down to the minute. He kept us on schedule on our wedding day which made it so much more enjoyable for us and our guests. Nothing was rushed or had to be left out.

My favorite thing about working with Michael was his expertise. There were a few entertainment details that we were unsure about, but Michael took the time to explain why they are important and why they work. Thank goodness we listened to everything he suggested because HE WAS RIGHT. Our dance floor was full all night long! We even turned to him for advice on photobooths, florist, ceremony processional order, and our cigar bar. HE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT WEDDINGS!!! All of the advice he gave us was 100% right.

HIRE MICHAEL MCNEIL. He was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding.

Thank you, Michael!!!!!!!

We were referred to Michael McNeil by friends and family members that used his services in the past. I had first on experience with him when my cousin had hired him as her DJ for their wedding back in October of 2014. I am not joking when I say, I planned my wedding date around this mans schedule! If I was getting married, I was to have only one DJ, Michael! We had multiple face to face meetings, going over themes, song choices, transitions,our likes, dislikes.... he had put together an itinerary that was so beyond helpful! I must have e-mailed him 100 times throughout the year and half we hired him, and never once did I have to wait more than a couple hours for his response! Michael even met us out at the venue in Palm Springs (TWICE) to get a feel for where he wanted to set up and how long her needed to place certain songs! By the end of the night, he a toy box full of props and goodies for our guests that they still can't stop talking about! The enthusiasm he portrayed for our wedding is what a bride dreams about!

He wasn't just a DJ, he played the role in assisting with the wedding schedule and was very in tune with what my groom and I wanted as well as our family and friends! He truly made our wedding spectacular and I highly, highly recommend his services! Whatever your dream is... I assure you, he will blow you away!

There are no words to express how grateful we are that we were able to have Michael DJ our wedding. If he is available on your event date, BOOK HIM NOW!!! I am telling you, you will not regret it whatsoever. Michael met with us several times before our wedding and, each time, literally mapped-out the timeline for the entire wedding day. Michael not only went above and beyond during the planning process, but the wedding day was absolutely flawless thanks to him. I cannot even tell you how many people raved about him after the wedding. Seriously, our guests couldn't believe how amazing Michael was. He will likely be the DJ at our friends' upcoming wedding if he isn't already booked on their date because they ABSOLUTELY LOVED him too. Do not hesitate to get in touch with Michael - he is an awesome person who is truly passionate about what he does and you will be so glad you found him! Thanks so much, Michael, for making our wedding day so memorable!!!

Michael was unbelievable, his attention to detail and ability manage the time allowed for my wife and I to not worry about a thing. He had several meetings with us prior to our wedding day and made it very easy to make our song choices. His equipment is top notch and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Our friends and family cannot stop raving about how incredible our DJ was, and we cannot wait to refer him to other weddings/events.

He said it to us when we first booked him, if you don't get the name on the wall when you book a vendor... then you might want to look elsewhere. He was 100 percent right!

Michael was amazing! When we first met with him, we knew we wouldn't work with anyone else. We left that meeting feeling the most organized we had felt since our wedding planning process began. He was so professional and his experience with DJing shone when he went through details with us. He helped with the timeline of the day of, down to the minute (which I loved). And provided priceless recommendations for song choices.
We brought my dad to the next meeting, and Michael took notes and learned all of the Lebanese songs we wanted played, in what order and when. My dad even provided songs that weren't in the online music library of Michael's, and Michael added them right in to our playlist.
I know why Michael has 5/5 star reviews. Our wedding was INCREDIBLE because of him! He has two sound systems, so the transition from ceremony to reception was flawless. He worked with the harpist that we had at the ceremony. He could read the room the entire night and knew which songs to play when (which is great for the Lebanese music I wanted played; it was great to have a DJ who knew when to switch back and forth). We had created a playlist online on our own time that he used to make us dance all night. His uplighting was incredible. AND special plus: while out on the FULL dance floor (Michael got everyone dancing so easily), I kept seeing someone walking around with a basket. I brushed it off as an uncle who was carrying a basket for one reason or another; I didn't care, I was having such a great time dancing and celebrating. Then I realized more and more that my friends and family all had little goodies! Michael had been going around, passing out awesome goodies to everyone on the dance floor! Cool sparkle gloves, light up sticks, sun glasses, etc. Everyone loved it!
Between his professionalism in meetings and as the MC (he is great at name pronunciation), and his ability to get a dance floor full and keep it that way, we hands down recommend him to anyone!!!

I don't think couples realize how important a DJ is for your big day! Michael was the captain of our ship! He met with us 5 times before our Wedding to ensure everything was set and made sense! His knowledge and music recommendations were spot on and we truly felt he cared about us and our day going smoothly! I will 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone! He is the BEST in the business!

Michael was outstanding!!! Best DJ ever!!! We couldn't have had a better DJ for our wedding. All of our guests loved him!!! He interacted with the crowd a lot and make it super fun! He was always super nice but still professional over the phone and through our planning. He also gave out props and glow rings which people couldn't get enough of. We loved that he came early and played music through our cocktail hour while our ukulele player was outside. You'd be crazy not to use Michael for your event! Thanks again Michael for joining in to make our wedding day the BEST PARTY EVER!!!
