Describe your DJ style:
We pride ourselves on being able to mix all genres to cater to your unique playlist, and keep your guests on the dance floor all night long!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
We love input from all of our Brides & Grooms! If you want to provide us with 10 of your favourite songs and let us fill in the gaps, great! If you have the perfect playlist already picked out, pass it along to us and let us put it together like you have never heard it before!
What is your usual attire?
Dress pants and dress shirt are the minimum all our DJ's wear, although, being Man About Town Entertainment, we often like to dress to impress!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We will scour all of our avenues to find the songs you need! In the very unlikely event that we cannot locate a specific song, we may ask the Bride & Groom for a little assistance.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have a roster of 10 amazing DJ's and are always on the hunt for the top talent of BC!
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
All our Standard Wedding packages include up to 8 hours of music.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We try our best to get our Brides & Grooms together with their fantastic DJ prior to the big day, however it is not always possible.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Man About Town Entertainment specializes in making a celebration the absolute best it can be! From Chinese tea ceremonies, to Persian the Sofre-ye-Aghd, we are familiar with a plethora of ethnic customs, and are always keen to immerse ourselves in new ones!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
We INSIST that all our clients provide a do-not-play list. A great DJ's job is not always playing the songs you want to hear, it often falls on NOT playing the songs you do not want to hear.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Man About Town Entertainment always brings their own top of the line, modern equipment to all of their events.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
With a wide variety of a la carte celebration options, we have everything a wedding could need. LED uplighting, custom wedding gobos, additional sound including wireless microphones, subwoofers etc.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
A Standard DJ Package take approximately 1hr to set up. We require a minimum 4ft table for our set up.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Being a mobile operator, we are used to working in a variety of spaces and conform our set ups to the room we are in.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Man About Town Entertainment will never have branding at any wedding.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
All of our DJ's are interactive and do a little emceeing in between songs, are happy to make any service announcements throughout the evening, and are available to be full MC's for the event as well.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
This is the part that separates a regular DJ from a GREAT DJ. With years of experience, our DJ's can read a room, change the vibe, get on the mic, or even possibly play a game to get your dance floor going, and keep it that way all night long!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not take breaks, and eat our meals at our DJ booth to ensure smooth volume levels, and transitions into speeches if needed.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
With our large roster, we always have a backup DJ on hand.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
We never book a DJ for more than one event per day.
What is your overtime rate?
Overtime rates are dependant on location, how many hours, and the hours which are overtime.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Travel expenses are based on location and timing.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require a 50% deposit to secure your celebration date!

Michael at Man About Town is very friendly, warm, professional, helpful, and most of all is an excellent DJ. We planned our wedding in Vancouver, Canada from Shanghai, China where we live. Many problems could have arose from setting up such a big day with no meetings in person, but there were none. The wedding was awesome and all of the guests had a wonderful time. Music is a very important component to any reception. Michael was key in choosing the most appropriate music throughout and providing suggestions for key moments like the cake cutting.

Not only do we recommend Michael and Man About Town for any event that needs a DJ, we think you would be making a mistake by not hiring them!

Your DJ did an excellent job of playing song selections that appealed to an age range of people. During our dinner, it was easy listening, it was not bombarding in anyway. Then after all the traditional wedding stuff, he picked it up and we danced the night away, while still catering to the wide age range. We all had such a great time! Thank you!

Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with!! He was very helpful and responded to my questions and ideas right away. At the wedding, he did the music for our ceremony and reception, and the timing was perfect. He had the whole place dancing up a storm all night! People at the wedding and the days after kept commenting on how great the music was and how their requests were played, which they LOVED. If I could give any bride in the Lower Mainland one piece of advice, it would be to book Michael and Man About Town Entertainment immediately. It will be the second best decision of the day (after getting married of course!!)
Thanks again Michael!! You helped make it perfect!!!

Mike from Man About Town absolutely exceeded our expectations as DJ and MC on the night of our wedding. He was friendly, quick to respond to e-mails in the weeks leading up to the event and on the night was so in tune with what our guests wanted that the dancefloor was packed all evening! The quality of our event was in large part a testament to Mike's ability to interact with the guests and keep the energy up! We're so thankful to Man About Town for being a part of our wedding.

Michael from Man About Town was the best!! We toyed with the idea of doing our own music as some of the other weddings we had recently attended just had some terrible DJs (didn't listen to requests, played music that no one was dancing to, too corny) but after our first meeting with Michael, I was quickly put at ease. He was friendly, open, and the pricing was great as well! Our wedding was just last week and we had many friends rave to us about how it was one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to - and I know a HUGE part of that was Michael's amazing DJ skills! He announced our grand entrance, played great dinner music, and when the dance floor opened, kept the party going ALL NIGHT until close. If you want a fabulous evening for your guests, Man About Town is your DJ! Thanks again Michael! Kathy & Mike

I can't say enough great things about Man About Town Entertainment. They accommodated all of our requests (including needing AV equipment set-up in the middle of my mom's field) and made sure we had a great worry-free time! Mike's experience with weddings was also really helpful for advice for all things wedding-related, including order of processionals, schedule for the day, and tons of details you would forget otherwise. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike and Man About Town Entertainment to any of our friends, and in fact, have done so with very happy results! Keep up the great work!

Man About Town come highly recommended! Michael was a treat to deal with prior to the wedding, and DJ Joe Pound was amazing during the wedding! He played a great mix of songs that we liked, and was also accommodating to our guests requests. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other couples who are looking for a great DJ

The DJ/MC is the heartbeat of your wedding. They dictate the flow, the humour, and how many people join the dance floor. Of all the things that will go wrong at your wedding, rest assured that the guests will be laughing and the dancefloor will be packed with people having the best time. Manabouttown has done hundreds of weddings, Mike thought about important details I would never consider and all my guests still talk about how my wedding was the best wedding they have been too! Absolutely book them for your wedding!

Micheal and I went back professionally for a few years prior to my wedding. Having worked in the nightlife industry i knew i could trust his knowledge and had an understanding of his personable nature.

I was NOT disappointed. He had all guests on their feet and having a great time throughout the night. Very open to requests and had a great read of the room for style of music to play. I'm happy to refer him always and am confident he will blow you away....

Always request the chicken dance, Macarena or any other song with a specific dance...his favorite and he'll be sure to join in the conga line ;-)

Such an amazing job selecting music from all eras that my grandparents and best friends could both enjoy and dance to. He had the dance floor packed from the second the first song started. I highly recommend this company for a guaranteed dance party at whatever event you may be throwing.

Man About Town was a pleasure to work with. The were quick and responsive and were able to find solutions to everything that we needed from an audio/visual perspective. DJ Shane was also a delight. We only gave him a small selection of songs that we wanted to hear. But based on the style and genres of those songs, he filled in the gaps like a musical wizard and kept the party going until the end of the night. Fantastic from beginning to end!

We were pleased with the service provided by Man About Town. They delivered all the right music for our ceremony and reception, even the more obscure music that we had to provide for them was all handled well. I would recommend for future events.

Man About Town really kept our party going all night long! I really wanted a busy dance floor and they knew the exact songs to play to suit the crowd on the dance floor, from parents and aunts and uncles and then moving into songs for all our friends to keep the party jumping! Thanks very much for helping make our day so awesome!
