“Mike did a an excellent job DJing our wedding. He was very professional and helped queue everyone up and make sure we were on schedule. We selected genres of music (instead of providing a song list) for each portion of our reception and his song choices fit our preferences perfectly. Highly recommend!”

“We are beyond thankful that Mike was the DJ for our wedding. People of all ages told me that this was the so far beyond the best dance party they had ever been to at a wedding. Our dance floor was packed until the very last song and I am pretty positive 80% of our guests were on the dancefloor all night. I looked up in the middle of dancing and actually thought to myself “Oh my gosh. I can’t believe this is actually my wedding.” Beyond his ability to pack the dance floor Mike is incredibly professional, comes with some of the best equipment you can buy (seriously, I know quite a bit about this stuff) and can handle any situation.

Do yourself a favor and hire him. Oh, and be sure to add on his full lighting package. It is the most cost effective way to make a design impact on your space and only uplevels the whole dance floor experience.”

“Working with Michael for our destination wedding was awesome–one of the BEST decisions we made for our vendor team! Michael was extremely organized and was able to provide everything we needed from ceremony music to cocktail hour, first dances, and dance party. Michael sends an event timeline for his clients to fill out beforehand which made it extremely easy to create the flow of the ceremony and reception. Most importantly, Michael knows how to throw a dance party! It was honestly the best part of the wedding for my husband and I. He kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night, which was extremely important to us. He was able to combine our personal style of music with guest favorites. All of our friends keep talking about the dance party at our wedding, and it wouldn’t have been possible if not for Michael. Thanks Michael–we will be recommending you to all our friends!”

“Working with Michael is one the best decisions we made during wedding planning! From start to finish Michael was a true professional. He listened to our musical tastes, asked the right questions to make sure he understood our vision and came through with great recommendations for our layout (to ensure the flow was right.) More than that, Michael (and Mike’d UP Productions) are a full service operation! Our wedding venue in Portland Oregon was non-traditional (Yale Union) which meant we had to source in everything ourselves (including lighting). Michael not only DJ’d the event but provided all the lighting – from uplights to cafe light strings, his creativity and expertise made the large warehouse space feel warm and welcoming to all our guests. People were dancing THE WHOLE NIGHT. It was not just our friends on the dance floor, Michael created a vibe that kept all generations up and on their feet – it was really amazing. We would recommend Michael without hesitation, you can stop right here – you have found your DJ!”

“Michael is just what our wedding needed to take it to the next level. I am pretty particular when it comes to guest experiences at an event and I knew I didn’t want some speakers in a corner playing ‘whatever’ type of music all night for my own wedding. I needed someone who could transition the vibe of the party from the ceremony, into happy hour, into dinner and then ramp up the dance floor for the rest of the night. Michael was all of that and much more. He is so accommodating to work with, very professional and understood my vision for how I wanted the wedding to flow and was able to get all of the guests on the same page. One of the things Michael did that I most appreciated, was his subtle yet effective way of keeping us on time. He would gently check in with us if we were ready for the next thing (grand entrance, cake cutting, etc.) and then make sure everything was ready for that to happen and then just got it going. I never felt rushed or behind, or like I was just waiting for the next thing to happen; Michael just seamlessly strung it all together. It was awesome not having to worry about that. I felt like I was in great hands throughout the entire process with Michael and couldn’t have been happier with how the evening turned out. He was a little more expensive than some of our other options but in the end, he was so worth it and really helped bring together my vision.

Thanks Michael!”

“We cannot say enough how much fun we had as Michael as our DJ at our wedding!! He was the absolute best. From the moment we met him to the night of, he was so responsive, helpful and made our wedding so easy. Our guests danced until midnight, hard and he was cutting up the best songs. We cannot wait to see our video to relive it! If we could just bring him to every event/party, we would. THANK YOU MICHAEL. You are incredible!”

“My husband and I loved working with Michael. He catered to our wide range of tastes in music and even worked in a “trappy hour” at the end of the night featuring hip hop and rap music (edited to be family friendly) for my husband and his friends. Michael played a great mix of dance-able music from current hits to old school throwbacks which all of our guests loved. Michael also MC’ed our wedding and did an excellent job of moving our guests through the multiple rooms in the venue throughout the night. Michael was incredibly professional and was always quick to respond to calls and emails from my wedding coordinator and me. Thank you Michael for helping make our wedding a complete success (and dealing with my husband constantly requesting songs 🙂 ”

“We couldn’t have picked a better DJ. Planning a wedding is stressful but this was one aspect of the planning that felt effortless, he answered questions that I didn’t even think to ask, made us feel at ease the whole time, and we felt like he really got us which proved to be true with every song that was played. He really helped create a mood and fun atmosphere that our friends and family are still talking about.”

“Miked Up did the music and lighting for our wedding and it was amazing. Michael was able to get the perfect combination of old hits and new hits to get a wide variety of people on the dance floor, making our wedding one of the best dance parties I’ve ever been to. We had people talking about our wedding for weeks afterwards! We’ve all been to wedding where the DJ bounces from country to hip hop to pop to rap with no rhyme or reason, causing mass exodus on the dance floor, and where the crowd just never gets into the music. With Miked Up, you will not have to worry about that! As an added bonus, Miked Up did the lighting for the venue, which was a large warehouse space with white walls…as the even progressed the walls became a dramatic backdrop for a spectacular lighting show. The music and lighting literally pulsed together creating a really fun environment. Well worth every penny and more!”

“Last fall, Michael did a great job as DJ for our shared high school reunion (that’s how dedicated he is!) so I reached out to him when planning my wedding. He responded immediately, suggesting a meeting to make sure we were a good personality fit and that he could provide what we wanted. Since I was living in NYC at the time, we had a Skype meeting. He was very knowledgeable, we felt comfortable with him, and it helped that he had done many other weddings at our venue (Willows Lodge). His rate was very reasonable… it was one price that covered our entire event, all equipment, set up, and break down, and he assured us that he would be there for us all day.

In truth, Michael did much more than just dj our wedding – he handled so many aspects of the event. He provided audio speakers during the ceremony as well as discreet microphones for the officiant and groom to wear. He set up lighting that transformed the atmosphere of the reception room. He nailed it. He knows what music is appropriate for each segment of the wedding and what works with a diverse crowd. Once the dance party got started, it lasted until the end of the night.

Most importantly, Michael guided the whole event seamlessly. From our grand entrance to speeches to first dances to cake cutting, he made sure we stuck to our timeline. Michael worked really well with our photographer and the venue coordinator. He thought of things that I never would have and took charge, without being overpowering, to keep the evening going smoothly. My husband and I were able to just enjoy our party.

Michael did an amazing job, and I am so glad we hired him. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ/Emcee for any event. He has the professionalism and experience to make sure your event goes smoothly and the creativity to make it just what you want it to be.”

“Miked Up Productions provides a great package of lights and sound. Michael mixes music live from the turntable and never relies on web services. The result is cool, unexpected mixes that cross the generations. Expect 70’s funk undercut with current R & B, Soul, Rock, or all the above. The lighting package enhances atmosphere ans the mixing offers flavor. When your coordinator leaves you will be in good hands”

“My husband and I saw Michael working at a friends’ wedding and were so happy with his work there, we asked him to do our wedding. He made the whole wedding process easy and was very accommodating with meeting times. His professional suggestions and knowledge of how weddings flow made our wedding all the better. He played a great variety of music that got everyone up and dancing. His professional demeanor and work ethic are some of his best qualities. I would suggest him to anyone who is getting married as there DJ and Master of Ceremonies.”

“My wife and I heard about Miked Up Productions from a friend while we were planning our wedding. After speaking with him in person and seeing his level of professionalism and experience, we could tell we were getting a bargain just by hiring someone we could entrust with such an important day. We hired him on the spot. From that point on I never had to worry about the reception because he did it all! The day of the wedding he showed up several hours in advance and set everything up without getting in the way of anyone (I didn’t even notice him). Once the reception got started I really understood the value of the service he provided: it was a lot more than just setting up speakers and selecting songs. He was able to keep everything moving: once it was time to move from cocktail hour to dinner, he was the one to politely and unobtrusively guided our guests to take their seats. Once it was time to make toasts, he got it started and made sure there were no surprises from overexcited family members. This is how our evening went; smoothly flowing from one event to the next, facilitated by Mike. After seeing him in action at my wedding and two other weddings, I would confidently recommend him to anyone. If you are someone who wants to hire a full service DJ/MC and not have to plan anything else, he is perfect for the job. If you are someone who wants to plan every detail yourself and just need someone to execute it, he can do that as well.”

“MOST AMAZING LIGHT GUY I’VE WORKED WITH! AND SUPER DOWN TO EARTH! Both my bands hired him for lights and we were all blown away. Other lighting engineers half ass it but Miked Up Productions takes the light show to a whole new level! Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who wants a bad ass light show should definitely hire him! We will always call him back for shows!”
