As soon we spoke with Michael, almost a year before our wedding, we knew he was the DJ for us! He was so responsive, professional, and personable right from the start. When we met with him a few months later for our first meeting, we were immediately put at ease. He traveled all the way down to Brooklyn to meet with us, and sat in hours of traffic without complaint. We sat at a local bar, and shared a beer while we went through our music selections.

He immediately "got us" in terms of our musical tastes. Neither my husband nor I are huge popular music fans. Michael loved our old school blues, R&B and funk choices. He then suggested some popular music that went with our style, and we loved everything he suggested. He was a big help and very accommodating when it came to our indecisiveness about our ceremony music. We sent him our choices at the last minute, and he pulled everything off perfectly.

His emceeing style was exactly what we wanted, laid-back and understated, but still got everyone partying and dancing. He met each one of our requests (no cheesy stuff like the macarena, no handing out stuff like blow-up microphones, and no last minute family requests) When family members went up to the DJ station to request stuff, he checked with us first to make sure it was ok (it was!). He guided us through the necessary dances and toasts and got all of our guests up out of their seats all night long.

We loved every minute of our wedding, and Michael and his assistant were a huge part of that. He even came up to us at the end of the night to compliment our first dance choice, and tell us what fun they had DJing our wedding. I would recommend Michael and HVE Associates to any bride and groom to be. He is not only an excellent DJ and emcee, but an awesome person as well!

Michael was such a pleasure to work with! He was so helpful and so readily able to provide suggestions and advice along the way. He knows how to take your vision for your wedding and make it a reality. HVE associates exceeded my expectations!!! I will refer over and over again!

Awesome, Amazing, Perfect are three words that immediately came to mind when I think of HVE on my wedding day. Mike was great with communication up to our wedding (we even Skype for the final details since we live 4 hours away) and even helped us pick/recommend some of our songs we used on our wedding day. He knew exactly what we were looking for and kept the party moving all night. We had so many compliments of how great the music was for the whole wedding. We had our wedding day at Catlin Gardens and he made all the transitions from ceremony - cocktail hour - reception seamless. We also had HVE work our after party at Jacks Pub and it was great. I can't say enough great things about this company and their level of professionalism. We are averaging about 5 weddings each summer and I can't tell you how important the music/DJ is! Thank you!!!!!!!

We had our reception at The Thayer Hotel on West Point and in addtion to have a jazz quartet during our cocktail and dinner hours, we wanted a quality DJ to "bring it home" after dinner until the reception was over. We started looking for a DJ and our event planner plus friends and family highly recommended Mike at HVE Associates and we could not have been more pleased with what he did! With our only request was to "get em up dancing" after our first song, the wedding reception rocked until the very end due to his knowing what to play at the right time. Jane and I cannot say enough about his professionalism and talent. Highly, highly recommended - you will not be disappointed

I have worked with Mike in the past for a friends wedding 4 years earlier and knew that we would be using him when it was our time! Mike was so amazing throughout the whole wedding process! He always answered our questions and really understood what we wanted! He gives plenty of suggestions that helped us stay calm..He played everything on our playlist and knew how to get the guests on the dance floor, which is exactly what I wanted! I was dancing the entire night!

I highly recommend HVE Associates. They provided the music for our 2012 wedding at west point. Our family has used them for two additional weddings that took place this year. As each of the weddings had a different style HVE was able to cater to each bride and grooms wishes. We went over every detail and he even went out of his way to find a song in an instrumental version; which had a lot of sentimental meaning between me and my dad for our dance together. I have nothing but the highest praise for Mike and his team.

Mike was a dream to work with. He had some great ideas regarding song selections. We were married during hurricane Irene and he was one of the few vendors that we were using that never gave showing up a second thought!!! We will definately use him again the next time we need a DJ.

What can I say... we didn't want the typical "wedding music" so when we set out to find the perfect DJ, I first called the local rock radio station. They informed we that one of their radio DJs is actually an event DJ as well. Things could not have been more perfect. We had modern and classic rock, acoustics and even glow sticks for the kids! No one sat down and by the end of the night we were all so tired from dancing! I lost my voice form singing along with my favorite songs and they let us customize every single aspect of the night. They provided sound for the ceremony, a microphone for the officiant, and I just hope they had as much fun as we did with them! Awesome job, I'd recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Being very unfamiliar with weddings i was unsure what i was in for. I called Michael and he came to my house for a consultation the next week... and had the same visions i did. i wanted different, unique, and fun. he managed to mix that with classy and sophistocated and made it all work. If he can make wrestling classy, he can do anything!!! He worked with the venue every step of the way and worked with my wedding party to help make my special day perfect!! He danced on the floor and got the guests going, made all the important announcements and worked with my photographer to make sure that everything went smoothly. i could never have asked for a better DJ. i LOVED having Michael at my wedding. Seriously, without him it would have been a disaster.

Fantastic experience. HVE met with us privately on a number of occassions to make sure that our needs were met and that everything was organized so that there were no surprises on our big day. They were 100% professional and very affordable. They will cater to any needs to make sure their clients get EXACTLY what they want. Guests from our wedding still talk about how great they were. Highest of recommendations.

Chris and the Blazin Beatz kept the party going!!! Throughout the planning process Chris was so nice and accommodating and didn't even take offense to the spreadsheet I gave him of must plays....and he played them plus others! He really got a feel of the crowd and kept them dancing and excited without being too pushy or obnoxious on the dance floor. My father-in-law even said he hadn't danced that much in years. He took our wonderful wedding and made it a great party!! I would highly recommend Blazin Beatz for your wedding.

Mike was everything that we could ask for on our wedding day. He was great with coming down to meet us all the way in staten island, and did everything we asked of him. His energy level was great and he kept the party going all night long. For my now husband and I Mike was not just a DJ we hired for our wedding, he was someone that we knew we could trust, and he proved to us that we could. I would definitely use HVE for any other event that we will need a DJ for. AMAZING JOB!!!

These guys are great! I booked them for my wedding on 7/18 and my sister also booked them for her wedding on 7/25. Our DJs were matched up with our personalities and musical preferences. They followed my musical preferences exactly, and refused requests that we had asked not to have played. Our wedding DJ was so nice and professional. I would recommend them immediately!
