Great DJ with a Vintage Twist
Mac knows how to DJ. He made sure to get to know us and our music tastes so the playlist would be things we love but knows so much about music he knew what else to play. His gramophones added a cool, vintage touch to our wedding. It was a pleasure to work with Mac.Sent on 04/07/2019

If you want a unique Jazz Age vibe for your wedding or any other event, call DJ MAC! His chill and confident demeanor calmed this bride's nerves! He brings his antique phonographs to DJ your reception and then switches to regular laptop for the dancing. He was willing to accommodate special requests and has encyclopedic knowledge about phonograph music. I would definitely let him do his thing as much as possible. He was also a great MC - not too intrusive or loud, perfect for us! We loved working with DJ MAC and we will always remember him as a great part of our wedding!Sent on 12/12/2016

PERFECT music choice for our venue/theme. We envisioned an old New York wedding, with golds, reds, and lamps with shade on the tables and palm plants in the corners. We had the wedding reception at Bobby Van's Vault in the Financial District and Mac the Phonograph DJ was match the venue and elegance perfectly. Mac played 1900 - 1920s records as the guests sipped and chatted during cocktail hour and the dinner portion of the reception. His assistant wore period garb (reserved, not too themed) and he himself work a fine tuxedo. Music streamed continuously through the cranked-by-hand phonographs and was amplified by speakers Mac brought in. Also, Mac was able to play our first dance and father/mother dance songs from his iphone, which plugged into the system at the restaurant. Lastly, Mac stayed 45 minutes past his contracted time and was polite enough to address it later that week, rather than on the night of our wedding in front of our guests. Truly a professional with a keen ear for what works throughout the night and a historian for a love of his blessed machines. Sincerely, thank you.Sent on 11/11/2014
