The DJ did a great job with our wedding. He kept the dance floor going all night long. He was always willing to meet and discuss any ideas or concerns we might have. His website was very well laid out and had a lot of non-DJ service lists for us to use in our planning. He was also willing to travel to our ceremony site just to run music prior to the ceremony. His lighting and the Gobo that he helped get for us really made our reception a hit. We couldn't have asked for more from our DJ and his staff.

I contacted MRKE very last minute for DJ services for our wedding party Labor Day weekend. We were looking for something less formal, and MRKE played out of our garage. The planning and everything at the event was professional, easy and went smoothly.

The music was great and, despite a night of rain and the outdoor venue, kept everyone dancing all night. I had never heard an encore at a wedding before, but MRKE answered the pleas of our guests for "one more song!" Thanks for being so accommodating. We highly recommend M.R.K. Entertainment.

My husband and I contacted Michael Kennedy for dj services for our wedding. We met with him a couple of times. He was extremely polite, professional, and came up with many helpful ideas which went beyond the traditional dj role. Michael knows a great deal about lighting and has high end equipment that he used to transform our space into a premier wedding venue!!! Our guests loved the lights and so did we!!!! We loved the uplighting, the dance floor lights, and most of all the music!!! He played all of our songs, and kept everyone on the dance floor!!! The pricing was also very reasonable, where as most djs would charge an outrageous amount. His online planning forms and playlists were extremely helpful! Overall, Michael is a very experienced dj and did an amazing job and I would HIGHLY recommend him!!!!!!!!

My fiancés and I hired DJ Michael in 2013 for our 2014 wedding. We opted for the Gold Package (all in one package with a price you cannot beat). DJ Michael was very knowledgeable and professional. He offered lots of great and creative ideas. Unfortunately, we decided to call off the wedding. DJ Michael was more than accommodating with the unforeseen circumstances. I would definitely recommend DJ Michael to anyone who is looking for a DJ that will make your special day/event the best it can be.

DJ Michael provided awesome DJ and lighting services for our April 2014 wedding! Leading up to the wedding, we met several times to ensure that he knew what we were looking for in music and lighting and to help us plan out our day. He had lots of good advice even beyond the music and lighting, which was much appreciated. He had a planning site available, and we could log in from home to add information about our timeline and music requests (including "do not play" requests).

The day of the wedding could not have been better! The lighting was AMAZING, and we heard that people outside of the venue were noticing. DJ Michael did a great job matching the lighting with each part of the wedding, from cocktail hour to dinner to "party time". He played all of the music we requested and otherwise did a great job mixing it up so that all of our guests could enjoy the party. People danced all night!

In the end, we would DEFINITELY recommend DJ Michael and M.R.K. Entertainment for DJ and lighting services!

We used Mr. Kennedy for our wedding reception as our DJ and to coordinate all of the venue's lighting. We really couldn't have been happier with him and he gave us a night that everyone who attended will always remember. Right from the start, Mr. Kennedy made himself so available to us and we met several times in person and corresponded frequently over the phone and email. Everything was always comfortable and he really took to heart all of our input. The music for the evening was very tailored to us, as he went out of his way to involve us in every step of the planning. He's got a great eye for the flow of an event and he managed to keep everyone on the dance floor all night long with excellent transitions. I've been to weddings where the DJ just couldn't do that and it killed the mood, but Mr. Kennedy kept the floor alive and our guests very happy. His lighting was spectacular and when dusk arrived, he totally transformed our venue into something even high-end clubs would envy. I can't tell you how many comments we've received from our guests regarding how amazing everything looked. To top that off, everything was very affordable and a great value for all we received. From start to finish, my experience with Mr. Kennedy has been that he's a great guy and is incredibly professional and passionate about what he does. We'd hire him again and again for future events and really couldn't have asked for anything more. I'd give him six stars if it were possible.

DJ Michael Kennedy was extremely flexible, considering I contacted him just a few weeks before my wedding in desperate need of a dj. Honestly, the first reason I contacted him was because of his great prices, but his service completely made our reception amazing. Being able to create song lists online was very helpful, setting up a system for our ceremony so everyone could hear, trying to help us stay on the best schedule possible (even though our food people were way behind), and playing a great mix of music, were just some of the reasons that I would strongly recommend Michael Kennedy. Thank you for making our day great!
