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

We could not have had as successful of a wedding without Michael!!! If you are looking for the best MC/DJ in Southern California who's also an all around nice guy, here he is and more.

We got married end of 2013 (sorry for the late post, Michael!) and planned our LA wedding cross-country from NYC. He was always so flexible and easy to work with the 3-4 times that we met (in person and via Skype!) before the wedding. Michael also MC'd my Matron of Honor's wedding so we already knew that he was great. But what really astounds me (still, a year later) was how big of a role he took upon himself to help us plan the big day! He's not just an MC or a DJ that provides a few hours of music. He gets to know you and understands what tone to set for the entire event. In my case, he also also helped us determine the best order of the ceremony/reception events for our venue and audience. A DJ/MC/wedding planner in one! He played a critical part at our rehearsal (our officiant was awful and did not come) and smoothly facilitated the whole thing. On the day of the actual wedding, he even pulled up his sleeves and helped the groomsmen with last minute furniture rearrangements! Seriously what more can you ask for?!?! And I think that all the other reviews have already covered how professional, presentable, and great he is at getting a crowd going. Michael is the type of friend and DJ who is willing to go the extra mile and lend a helping hand simply because he's a great person. Thank you for being a part of our entire wedding process, Michael!

Hands down the best decision we made about our entire wedding. We live in Portland, OR and had our wedding down in Orange County. Needless to say, it was insane trying to plan a wedding from hundreds of miles away. Michael was a SAVING GRACE. I literally might have lost all my hair without him. He was willing to plan over the phone, Skype, email and even accommodated our insanely busy schedule when we happened to make it down to OC before the wedding. I did not have a vision about our wedding before we sat down and talked with him. We had a lot of weird song requests seeing as my husband is a huge Doors fan and my family loves Springsteen. He accommodated ALL OF IT! He even edited our first dance song because we thought it had a boring break in it. He came up with great ideas I would have never thought of. He was all my family and friends could talk about. OH and did I mention he brought A BUNCH of party favors for the dance floor? My guests were literally on the dance floor from beginning to the very very end (they would have kept going if our venue allowed). It was all thanks to Michael. I PROMISE you, you won't be disappointed if you hire him. Seriously, hire him. Well worth the money. I'd pay $1,000 more. HIRE HIM.

Michael was the DJ for our wedding last weekend and he went above and beyond! He met with us at least 4 times before the wedding to plan the timeline of events and music. He is very responsive and easy to get in touch with, be it to set up meetings or make changes to something. I felt in good hands on the day of knowing that he would keep the event moving, and he did! Everything went as he had planned with us and our guests never felt bored or like they had downtime between activities such as dancing, cake cutting, bouquet tossing, etc. Our guests were actually amazed by him and we had several people ask for his info for their upcoming events. (One of my bridesmaids is now planning her wedding and is using him!) He passed out a lot of toys and props for people to dance with, which we didn't expect, but made the night even more fun and memorable. He did a great job of reading the dance floor and playing music that kept the party going. We were so grateful for all of his suggestions as well as his willingness to listen to our wants, and we had some quirky things on our want list. Every bride has told me to expect something to go wrong on my wedding day, and maybe we were an anomaly but we honestly didn't have anything go wrong. I have to attribute a lot of that to Micheal's planning and hard work. If you want your wedding or even to be a great party with lots of dancing, I recommend you stop looking here and call Michael. Everything was amazing thanks to him!

Michael was the BEST DJ! We had such a great time at our wedding, and so did our guests--we keep hearing from everyone how much fun they had on the dance floor. Not only did he play great music all night, he also provided uplighting, helped with a slideshow, coordinated with the photographers, and helped cue events throughout the evening. Michael also met with us several times before the wedding and really helped us to get organized, get a schedule together, get a good music selection figured out, and all in all helped us make sure our wedding day go smoothly. He was always helpful and prompt. We highly recommend him!

Michael was a fantastic DJ! He was responsive, professional, punctual, and upbeat in every interaction I had with him. He just gave off such a positive and energetic vibe the entire evening. His playlist was tons of fun and he really knew how to get the guests excited and onto the dance floor - which can be hard to do! Highly recommend.

Our wedding was the best day ever due largely in part to our amazing DJ and MC Mike McNeil with Ovation Entertainment. If you are looking for the perfect DJ for your wedding or event I promise you won't be disappointed by Mike, He surpassed all of my expectations and then some. He is extremely professional, knows everything about music and event production, and carried the evening so flawlessly despite the many moving parts. Don't waste your time interviewing anyone else because this is your guy! As someone who has worked as a wedding and event coordinator for several years now, Mike is the best DJ I have ever worked with. Mike helped make our day unique and special by working with us to select music that we liked and represented us rather than a generic mix of HIS Music. He was attentive to our requests and sat with us for several hours to listen to different songs providing suggestions to select for the special moments throughout the evening. I highly recommend adding a lighting package with Mike as he was able to enhance the mood and ambiance with the touch of a button changing colors and more. He even supervised the installation of our rented dance floor without question. He also put together our timeline and structure of the evening, and helped us design the room layout to allow for the best acoustics. We added in a percussionist on Mike’s recommendation to play alongside Mike. It added a live element to our wedding unlike anything I had seen before and people are still talking about it! I can't even express to you how incredible our day was and I know a lot of the evening’s success was because Mike was there. He was so present in every element of the process leading up to and on our wedding day. People are still coming up to me to ask who our DJ was because they were so impressed. Thank you Mike for being a part of our very memorable wedding day and all that you did to make it the wedding of the year. The only DJ I will ever recommend. Bravo!

Michael is incredible. He met with us several times before the wedding to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted and he was so professional and knowledgeable. He had our guests on the dance floor the entire reception, and it was so much fun. I have had so many guests tell me that it was the best reception they've been to and more fun than they have had in a long time, and it was all thanks to him. He was the best decision we made in the whole planning process, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

I first saw Micahel at a friend's wedding a few years back. Once i got engaged and was looking for DJs, she highly recommended him. And as I had seen him and his work at her wedding I took her up on her suggestion, boy am I glad I did!

Michael was one of the main reasons my wedding was so fantastic and worry free. He was so relaxed, put you right at ease, very reasonable with what needed to have done and pricing. He would meet with you however many times was needed to be sure your itinerary was perfect, and questions answered, and all dreams realized. He tailor makes your reception to what you want, both in terms of music, energy, feel, and flow. You can have it be as cheesy game show or classy traditional as you wish, and he will do what you need. He helped with scheduling, corralling guests, and in general watching his bride and groom's backs. He was some of the best money I spent on my wedding, and everyone at the reception raved about how well the dancing and events were run. I HIGHLY recommend him to everyone. He is the best wedding investment you can make!
