I have been involved in the wedding business since 1980. I have experience in several aspects including photography, hypnosis, venue management, consulting, and of course disc jockey. As a certified Hypnotist, I also offer my services for personal issues,and comedy hypnosis shows. Here at Mikes Music of Florida, our highly trained staff uses only professional equipment. No home stereo components , or speakers. We hold monthly training sessions for our staff, and always maintain an updated music list. We consider ourselfs reception coordinators, not just DJ's. What this means is we will manage your reception, and work with your wedding coordinator, photographer, and other vendors. We will make sure that everyone is on the "same page" before we announce an event I.E. time to cut the cake, or let's do the first dance, we will check with the bride and groom, photographer, etc to make sure everything runs smoothly. We have a free online wedding planner where you can edit all your information for all your wedding vendors. There is even a section to create and edit your song list. Once your play list is complete, we play only from your list. This way, we know you will enjoy everything that is played. If you would like to allow song requests from your guests, this is another option on your free wedding planner. Here at Mikes Music of Florida, we strive for a stress free, and enjoyable time for not only the bride and groom, but for the guest as well. Give us a try, I know you will like what you see (and hear). Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Low key, or high energy. This depends on the requests of the bride and groom. I do like to interact, and have a good time though.
What is your usual attire?
Depends on the event, usually a tux for a wedding. For some outdoor weddings we can dress down a little. This is something that is covered in our free online wedding planner.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
If I do not have a requested song, I will check with my DJ groups and try to find the song. Usually with my contacts, I can find the song. I will only ask the couple to provide the song, if I can not locate it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I have six DJ's and KJ's (karaoke disc jockey). All have been certified, and go through monthly training.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We have no minimum time limits.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, I believe in this. I believe teh DJ and bride should be able to get along and communicate both before, and durring the event.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I have a spanish speaking DJ, and I do yearly spanish events, but nothing international yet.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, we have only professional equipment, and arrive early to setup and test. Also, there are never any setup or breakdown costs.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Yes, we have wireless mics, lasers, bubble, and other lighting effects available.
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?
We usually get there an hour early, but only takes about 15 or 20 minutes to set up. For weddings, I usually request a table with skirting so everything matches and looks professional.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No extra space requirements. The only thing we ask for is an electrical outlet near by.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, we emcee, and make announcments. We just don't sit there an play music. We interact and get involved.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
A meal is usually offered, and is very much appreceited. The DJ will eat durring the same time as the guests, and keep backround music going. They will eat at their equipment and/or close to the area. This way, they can continue to monitor the music.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
As stated above, we take no breaks other then "nature calls", and yes recorded music will continue to be played.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, we have several DJ's both in and out of our business that work together in an emergency.
What is your overtime rate?
Overtime rate is $75.00, but I offer it to all Wedding Wire customers for a rate of $50.00 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No extra charge for travel, setup, or breakdown.

Mike did a wonderful job & at a great price! I was honestly a little worried about using him, due to the last bad review on here, but he did a great job & exceeded my expectations. He was very professional & eager to help & he even had lots of great suggestions! He was willing to work with me & play the music for our ceremony & reception, since they were both in the same building.
Our ceremony ended up starting an hour late, so everything got mixed up & we weren't able to do everything at the reception on time. Mike did great with working with us & playing the music when we wanted.
I highly recommend using Mike if you're looking for a DJ that doesn't charge rediculous prices & who will be professional.

I was devistated with this company! Absolutley horrible! I set up the service back in November of 2009 so there was ample enough time for this DJ to be prepared for my wedding in March 2010! He has a website that you can set up songs and itenerary, etc. I filled it out as he requested and when I met with him the night of the wedding he said nothing was there. I indeed printed it out the very day I created it, so why could'nt he? I said, Okay, I will just bring it with me the day of the wedding. However he called me the next morning and said no worries he had found it and had it printed. When I arrived at the venue for my wedding I was told he didn't have it that he couldn't print it out!!! So, luckily I had my copy in the car in which I gave the the DJ he had assigned for us. SHE was horrible! She mispronounced everyones names when we where being introduced and screwed up my mother son dance. I had such high hopes for this company because Mike the owner was very nice and personable. But sending the DJ that he did, was unexceptable! I will and would never recommend this company, and I feel like my money was wasted!!!!!!!!!!!

Mikes Music and Comedy of Florida responded with the following comments:

I had medical problems, and was not able to do this event myself. I helped setup the equipment, and did what I could. I tried to manage this event the best I could. The stand in DJ was nervous and had a hard time dealing with the issues. I discounted this event, and promised to do another party myself for them with no charge. We did have the music playlist and a lot of the guest said they had a great time. I'm truly sorry if the bride was upset, but I did everything in my power to correct the issue. I now ONLY use myself, and certified wedding disc jockeys for all my weddings.

I was so worried about everyone leaving early, and having a boring wedding. Mike made my wedding a party to remember. He played all the right music, at the right time. Everyone had a blast, and everything ran so smooth. Mike overseen the reception, and stayed in contact with us, photographer, and my consultant. He did announcements, and put fun in everything! He even sang mom's favorite song for her "What a Wonderful World" it was amazing! His service and attitude is fantastic. I can not say enough for this man, or his company. My friends are still talking about the great time they had. Seriously, contact this business for your wedding, or next special event! Joey
