Mike is a rare breed in the wedding industry -- he's just impeccable in everything he does. A consummate professional, he makes that oh so important first impression by first of all looking like a million bucks in his slick European suit - something that is becoming rare as more DJs are just showing up in casual clothes these days...ugh. Hiring experienced vendors REALLY pays off because they make for a flawless, stress free wedding day, and this is never more true than with a DJ. Mike knows when to speak up and when to keep quiet and just let the music talk. He knows how to work a crowd like no other DJ we have every worked with -- and that's saying something, since we've worked weddings in the DC area since 1991. One of the things I love about Mike is that he gets the older crowd on the floor AND the younger crowd at the same time by using a mix of tracks -- he doesn't just turn on a song and walk away, he's always working, mixing -- and always with a smile on his face because you can tell that he just loves what he does. Now, Mike is a little more expensive than other DJs but it was never more true that "You get what you pay for" Don't be the bride that decides to pay less for a DJ only to have an empty dance floor at the reception and then THAT is what your guests will be talking about instead of how fabulous your day was! Mike is awesome and he would never let that happen -- if you want EVERYONE, young and old, on the dance floor at a reception and a wedding that everyone will be talking about for YEARS to come, run don't walk to get Mike Blaufeld.
We were fortunate to find DJ Mike to mc our beach wedding ceremony and reception at Rehoboth Beach. His extreme professionalism, flexibility and overall quality of service was outstanding. He took care of everything including setting up music and mics on the beach for our ceremony. DJ Mike welcomed the daunting task of melding our varied musical tastes, ranging from a bit of country to hiphop, to satisfy our family and friends from age 2 to age 90. He worked with us to include our taste in music, suggested perfect selections for us when needed, and also kept the party going and guests dancing at the reception. We were most impressed by his thorough preparation and communication with us prior to the big day. We highly recommend DJ Mike for his outstanding DJ service. He was a pleasure to work with and certainly provided a memory that exceeded our expectation and will stay with us forever. Thanks again Mike!
I got married July 12th in Vienna, Virginia. It was the best day of my life….I could go onI.. people say, "be ok with not everything going perfect"-- so i prepared but it was perfect and my fairytale ... and MIKE was such a big part in that...ask him about our introductions-- it goes down in history :) haha.. But really he was VERY organized and so flexible and we were able to work everything out meeting one time, email and phone follow ups. He was prompt and always followed through....and on top of that he is just a cool guy! and super experienced. My guests loved him and he also played a great blend of music all of what I liked :) So in conclusion, I think he is the BEST around and we had a blast with him!!!
I have nothing but huge accolades for DJ Mike! Our wedding was a cold, rainy November evening, and DJ Mike helped make it the party of the year. You name it (age, background, musical taste), they were dancing. The dance floor was packed all night, and not because of cheesy songs (YMCA, Macarena, etc, which I placed on my "do not play" list and which DJ Mike completely respected), but because DJ Mike has an amazing ability to read a crowd and figure out what will get people out on the dance floor. The dinner hour music was awesome (sort of Sinatra "plus") and then the dancing was fantastic.... a mix of just great dance music plus some stuff he really tailored for our preferences and for our guests. DJ Mike is fabulous and will make your wedding (or whatever event) fantastic!!
We are so grateful because DJ Mike was AMAZING. He was a totally friendly guy and very professional. He took our requests very seriously and also made good recommendations to us about how to structure our reception, how much music could be played, and how to get people dancing, all of which made the reception flow very smoothly. Our friends and family told us that the reception was one if not the best that they had ever attended, and DJ Mike was a great reason for this! The dance floor was packed the whole night and after we left, my dad had to pay DJ Mike to stay another hour or so above and beyond our contract because people were having so much fun! He has a great personality, very tactful, enthusiastic, and optimistic. He also worked directly with our reception venue to work out the technical set-up details which made it easy for us. His style is to be the unobtrusive backbone of the happiness and fun of your special night. All in all he is awesome and I would highly recommend him.
DJ Mike was fantastic! He was extremely professional and responsive from start to finish! It was a pleasure working with him, the initial consultation was great. We exchanged creative ideas. We benefited from his guidance and working knowledge. He kept communication open at all times by sending a friendly email or phone call. At the reception, our entire group of 150 guests was on the dance floor, thanks to DJ Mike. With over 25 introductions of a diverse group, DJ Mike was committed to the correct pronunciations of everyone's names. This ensured each of our attendants was given the proper recognition and thanks for celebrating our special days with us! The selection of music was well suited for a wedding. He catered to all our needs. The quality he offers was well worth the affordable price! THANK YOU SOO MUCH DJ MIKE!!!
Mike is a professional and very talented DJ -- one of the best! We do not receive any sort of commission for booking or referring him, but we continue to do so because of his wonderful personality, professionalism, talent and overall impressive presentation. We can confidently say that you would be more than pleased with his services for your wedding.
Thank you so much Mike! You did an amazing job — it was the best wedding reception I’ve ever been to!!! I had many people compliment us on what great music you were playing and how much fun they had dancing and I really can’t remember ever dancing that much at a wedding! We really enjoyed the selection that you had for us and we greatly appreciate your efforts to ensure our ethnic traditions were honored. I really can’t express how pleased we were with everything.
