Club-Style Mixing with a Professional Demeanor
DJ Mike Lujan has been DJing professionally at weddings, formal/informal parties, conventions, quinceañeras, and mitzvahs for over nine years, but has always been DJing since high school with a huge passion for music and music culture. He combines his love of music and the craft of DJing with his love of providing the best professional wedding/event DJ services in the area. Based in DC/Maryland/Virginia, Mike has also performed in New York City, Philadelphia, Houston, Anaheim, and Atlanta, and has travelled as far as Outer Banks NC to DJ weddings.
Some DJs would be great in the club to provide an energetic dancing experience, but wouldn’t be as professional and efficient as other wedding DJs. On the other side of the coin, some wedding DJs are excellent at planning, sticking to schedule, communicating, and being flexible, but may not be all that great at mixing songs, keeping an exciting music flow going, and properly transitioning without awkward pauses or clashes. DJ Mike Lujan is the best of both worlds: excellent at mixing songs, reading crowds, making great song choices on the fly, and keeping the dance floor packed, all while also being very knowledgable about the ins and outs of weddings, being quick to respond and communicate, adapting to any sudden changes or situations, and expertly utilizing all equipment to ensure that the wedding flows flawlessly. When DJ Mike Lujan succeeds at both of his passions of excellent music and excellent service, it is the ultimate rewarding experience. It’s not just a job to him, but a genuine passion.
Passion for Music:
Born in 1986, Mike grew up with all kinds of music from the 90’s and 2000’s. He is all about keeping the dance floor packed by playing hit after hit after hit from all eras, with technique and finesse. Pop, hip hop, EDM, country, oldies, he knows what to play and when to play it. He also has latino music, everything from today’s hits, reggaeton, salsa, bachata, merengue, cumbia, and the classics. He can recognize what kind of music will work best with your guests, and DJ Mike Lujan's style of DJing perfectly balances those genres to make sure all of your guests enjoy themselves on the dance floor to the fullest.
He provides top of the line sound equipment, including perfect-sounding QSC loud speakers, QSC subwoofers, mixers, Chauvet dance floor lighting, wireless handheld and headset/lavaliere mics, and a professional Pioneer DJ controller. The microphones are of excellent sound quality, and DJ Mike Lujan is well-experienced with audio-engineering to know how to avoid feedback and low volume speeches. He also brings dance floor lighting that will perfectly light up the room and bring even more energy to the dance floor. His setups are neatly and professionally presented with minimal wire exposure and no tripping hazards.
DJ Mike Lujan has backups for everything: backup computer, backup music on external hard drives, backup wires, backup DJ controller, backup mixer, backup speakers, backup mics. He knows all the common pitfalls when it comes to DJing events and he takes every precaution to avoid them. He comes to your event as early as possible (if multiple setups, even three hours early) to sound check everything properly and troubleshoot if necessary. He does NOT charge for setup time and clean-up time.
DJ Mike Lujan's contracting is extremely fair. Most other DJs have an "act of god" clause that, if something out of their control prevents them from DJing, they still keep the deposit or a portion of the payment. Should something, ANYTHING, prevent him from performing, no matter the condition, you will recieve a full 100% refund of all balances paid, even the deposit. Why pay for a DJ that can't DJ?
Your Personal DJ:
On the day of the wedding, DJ Mike Lujan works closely with the day-of coordinator and photographer to make sure the whole event moves seamlessly. The idea is to make sure you don't have to worry about what time it is or if you're late for cake cutting, just focus on your big day and enjoy yourselves! Mike's planning process is extremely simple and utilizes Google Docs, a way all parties involved can easily view and edit songs and details. Mike stays in touch during the planning process, is able to give suggestions for songs if needed, and leaves his cell phone open to texting and calling for absolutely any questions. Scenario: It's the day before your wedding, and you realize you need to change your First Dance song. Not a problem, just text Mike the name of the new song, and he will have it ready to go. Just consider Mike your personal DJ!

DJ Mike is awesome! Couldn't have been happier
We hired Mike for our wedding and he did an awesome job. He was super helpful throughout the planning process, he made himself available to us to go over the details of our wedding from the schedule of events to the different types of music we wanted throughout the evening. Having Mike there allowed us to relax and trust that everything would run smoothly. I would 100% recommend for your next event!Sent on 10/01/2019

Excellent/You won’t be dissapointed
Mike makes the process very easy and does his best to incorporate all songs and genres requested. His transition between hip hop to bachata to salsa and everything in between was flawless. He helped play apart in making our day perfect. I also liked his setup that hid all of his equipment and blended flawlessly into the background. He also takes requests on the fly. He showed up early to setup in multiple locations and to make sure everything sounded perfect. To sum it up, hire him to DJ any and all functions. He will keep the party lit!Sent on 10/04/2019

Mike was a great choice for our DJ. He was very easy to work with and very professional the whole time. We had several last-minute changes including a video that I wanted played during the garter toss. Mike was able to accommodate this on the fly and it went perfectly. There were also several songs our guests requested that he was able to play, and he went well above and beyond during the event. We had several compliments on how great our DJ selection was and we would definitely recommend him to anybody! Not to mention our dance floor was packed the whole night!!Sent on 10/01/2019
DJ Mike Lujan's reply:Thank you so much Andrew! Your review and your kind words mean a whole lot, I'm so happy I was able to perform for you and Natalie and your guests. Everything was amazing and I had a ton of fun. Congratulations!
