This is our third experience with Michael Valenti over the past 2 1/2 years and I'm sure it won't be our last! We had a 60th Birthday bash at our home and hired Michael for the first time. It was an outdoor party under a tent, on a rainy, muddy spring evening. Everything went just perfectly, Michael played music from different genres to keep everyone happy and on their feet. Honestly I don't think anyone sat in their seat for long! Then again for our sons wedding and again for our daughters wedding. Each time everything went so smoothly, with no issues ever! This man knows what he is doing from the first contact, he is very professional yet extremely friendly and easy going and also flexible. And man does he know how to keep a party hopping until the very end. My experience at each party is no one is ready to leave! I would highly recommend Michael Valenti for any event needing the Best DJ Ever!

Michael was absolutely amazing! We had SOOO many people tell us that the music was incredible and a lot said the music was the best of any wedding they had ever been to. The guests were pretty evenly split between old and young, and he did such a good job of reading the crowd and the atmosphere and playing music that appealed to everyone. Everyone was dancing all night. My dad could barely walk the next day because he was dancing for two hours straight! We didn't give Michael many songs that we wanted or even much guidance on what to play, but just based on the conversations that we had he captured to mood of the wedding and our personalities perfectly. He made the planning so easy and stress free and guided us through everything very smoothly. I am so grateful for everything that Michael did and would recommend him to anyone and everyone for their wedding or party!

We interviewed a few DJ's before we met Michael. He was great - not too over the top, not too laid back, just right! We were able to create lists of please play/do not play which helped a lot. He was able to do the ceremony music, as well as the reception right after, at a very good price! He really made the reception a success. Everything was such a blur that day, but I know that a lot more people were up dancing than I expected! He helped out during dances like Cupid Shuffle, showing the old folks how its done! Everyone had a blast!

Michael is so awesome to work with! He works so hard to give you everything you could dream of to make your wedding reception a night/day to remember forever! Our guests danced the night away & kept commenting on how much fun they were having! Michael works with you personally to ensure that the music you want played will be played. There's no surprises with him. He is super nice and always had time to talk to me and give me his expert advice. I definitely recommend Michael to anyone who wants to have a great party and wants to keep people on the dance floor all night!!

DJ Michael was perfect. Everyone was raving about the music and how they've never been to a wedding where everyone danced nonstop for the entire time. I can't say enough about how Michael made it all happen.

I know every single 5 star review here speaks for itself. But I have to share the story of my wedding. Pretty much all of our friends, and especially the groom and I... Are not the ones to dance, anywhere. We don't party much, and we are the type that usually just hang out at home on our computers. So as you could imagine, we worried about the state of the mood for our daytime wedding. The moment we talked to Michael for the first time though, we were so relieved. I still remember him telling us how he knows how busy and crazy everything will be for us, and that he's got our back. And he wasn't kidding. I had a vision for a particular series of ceremony music that I put together, and with just a quick explanation and sending him the songs, he NAILED it. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how awesome the music was. And when it came to the reception, he seriously was a godsend. Imagine, with the awkward/shy series of friends, there was a point where everyone was on the dance floor having a blast. Seeing my mother-in-law dancing with my granddaughter was also priceless, and even brought tears to the family members' eyes. It felt like a wedding day miracle. He even got on the dance floor himself and that just shot the mood up the roof! He also listened to every single request and even a foreign song we had dedicated to our mother he played at the perfect time. He's a hero in a DJ disguise. If you are fortunate to have Michael Valenti as an option for your wedding, I'd recommend him with all my heart.

Mike Valenti was an awesome DJ! He had our dance floor packed the entire night. I was hesitant at first for the amount of dance time I had allotted for my guests but he made certain everyone was up and dancing the entire time. The playlist he prepared included all of my "must play" selections and was a great variety of groups and type of music I wanted played. I would highly recommend him to other brides. He was worth every penny!

Michael knows his stuff! He was amazing throughout the planning process and provided us with an extremely organized and easy to use system to select music and plan the reception. He allowed us to plan as little or as much as we wanted, from selecting the entire playlist to leaving it all in his hands. He has incredible knowledge about music right down to the beat rate of each song. His knowledge made transitions between songs seamless and selection of songs perfect to keep everyone up and dancing. He was extremely responsive via email or phone and had great suggestions whenever needed. The dance floor was packed the whole night from one-year-olds to 71-year-olds! My husband and I had NEVER seen our parents dance and we couldn't get them off the dance floor! Michael put everything he had into making the night perfect for us and reflected our personalities completely. He was even out on the dance floor dancing with us! He made our reception better than we could have ever imagined. People are still talking about the music at our reception. We would highly suggest Michael to anyone looking for a reception that all guests are sure to remember for years to come!

We found Michael through a company that had a relationship with our wedding venue. We were a bit lost as to how to choose a DJ without seeing them work. Then we met Michael before finally committing and we knew we'd be in good hands. He is an experienced professional who caters to his audience: you want young and hip, he can do it; you want the classics, he knows exactly what to hit; and if you want him to pick everything he will play to the crowd.

Michael dealt with a massive amount of requests we had ahead of time. Did an excellent job with the Intro's, difficult name pronunciation, and MC'ing. He has fun without ever making himself the focal point of your big day. I can't recommend Michael Valenti enough.

In addition to DJ'ing the reception, he took care of sound and mics for our ceremony where we had an officiant, harpist, and singer. The sound came out great even amidst gale force winds. Thanks again.
