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.

Michael V is a gentleman, a scholar, and a PHENOMENAL DJ. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone.

This is what impressed me:
- Before our wedding, my wife and I used Michael's "DJ Intelligence" account to design everything for our event from song choices, to timeline, to wedding party order... So many details (lol). This resource simplified everything for us.
- I could reach Michael at anytime day or night. Zero communication issues.
- Michael provided CRITICAL guidance as to my timeline and important song choices (i.e. First Dance, Father-Daughter Dance, Mother-Son Dance, etc.) I took every one of his recommendations into account.
- Michael kept the night going from our entrance, through dinner, through the dance party with great music. There was never once an issue, an awkward moment, or a lull.

Thanks so much for a night I will never forget, Michael. I'm so happy to now call you my friend!!!!

Michael was the best!! I received compliments from guests even through the next day on how he's the best dj they've seen and how every single song was danceable. I was very impressed on his knowledge on reading a crowd and playing songs based on them. He knows his stuff! Definitely would recommend to anyone

My wife and I booked DJ Michael for our wedding at the Peabody Library. He was a great choice. A true professional. In addition to playing good music throughout the night, he also helped make several live music performances possible.

Working with DJ Michael was a smooth and enjoyable process. We definitely recommend him.

Mike did an amazing job as our wedding DJ! We've been to events where the DJ either makes or breaks the party, so we wanted to be sure we hired a great DJ/Emcee for our big day. From the very beginning, we were impressed with Mike's extensive knowledge, experience and general demeanor. He explained that he'd be happy to honor as many song requests as we wanted (as well as "do-not-plays"), but that he does best when he has the freedom to "read the room" and play songs he feels will appeal to our our unique crowd, both young and old. So that way, everyone gets up to dance! We trusted him and he totally came through. The music selection was great and we saw family dancing that we never thought we'd see leave their seat! Mike also played the funky eclectic music I wanted for cocktail hour, as well as a not-so-common first dance song with my new husband AND a custom track I gave him for the father-bride dance. Our guests just raved about Mike and we were so happy we hired him to emcee/DJ our very special day!

Michael was the absolute best!
One of the main reasons I chose to work with Michael was because of the absolute professionalism his exudes. From our first meeting, Michael made me feel completely confident he would do a great job. He made me feel like I was his top priority, continuously touching base and making sure I knew that I could reach out if I needed anything. I put together a list of songs, but I had such genuine confidence in him that I did not feel the need to go song by song picking the exact order for our reception music. Michael was beyond EXCELLENT for our Wedding Day. Truly. We asked for country and lighter alternative music during cocktail hour, and it was perfect. And, as my mom describes it, "as the night went on, the music got better and better." It was fabulous. Our night was a veryyyy warm evening in September, but that didn't stop the dance floor from being packed the entire time, including myself and my new husband :) I wanted a DJ who didn't need to hear themselves talk on the microphone, and Michael respected my request, he spoke when it was necessary, and was very tasteful and poised.
If you are looking for a DJ, take my word, use Michael Valenti! You will NOT be disappointed!! Not only was he a phenomenal DJ, he is a great person and I genuinely enjoyed working with him!
