Energetic and professional DJ
As soon as my husband and I started to plan our wedding, we immediately new Michael would be our DJ. We were fortunate to know Michael personally and experience his shows before getting engaged, and he surpassed all of our expectations. Michael was great to work with, very hands on and involved in the entire process. He helped us set up a time line, provided suggestions and feedback for music selections, and made sure we were happy and completely prepared before the big day. We hired Michael for both our ceremony and reception music and are so glad we did. He blended and timed the ceremony music perfectly, provided lapel mics so our vows could be heard clearly. He kept the flow going throughout the reception with perfectly timed music and energy to the very end. We are very grateful to have worked with Michael and would without a doubt work with him again in the future! Great music is one of the key parts to a fun wedding and Michael surpassed all of our expectations!Sent on 08/22/2019

We are so grateful we hired DJ Cuban & you will be too!
He helped to make our wedding SO.MUCH.FUN! All of our guests made memories to last a lifetime! We 100% recommend him for your wedding or special event! Not only does he have the perfect personality that’s both easy going AND energetic…. He was also impressively professional, organized, helpful, creative, and flexible from beginning to end!Sent on 07/31/2019
WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR:
My husband and I were looking for a professional DJ who could work a loud crowd of Puerto Ricans and Italians, and play an even mix of music from various decades and genres (specifically: Salsa/Merengue, Reggheaton, Electro-dance pop, and R&B). We also needed a DJ that could work seamlessly with the professional Saxophone player we hired for the ceremony and dinner portion of the reception. Lastly, we wanted someone who was fun, organized, and professional.
WHY WE CHOSE HIM:
DJ Cuban checked all the boxes and many more! We were pleasantly surprised to discover he is even fluent in Spanish! That was such a bonus for our fusion wedding because he was able to speak in both English and Spanish so my family felt included and engaged the entire night. His set-up was clean, organized, and modern. It blended in perfectly with our venue - but also looked totally cool and festive when the party lights were turned on. The main reason we chose him was for the music and boy did he deliver!
He did an incredible job of mixing genres and decades. Our ceremony was absolutely PERFECT and our reception was totally EPIC! All our guests, no matter their age, had a blast dancing all night long. From our sassy little 4 year old flower girl, to my disco king 70 year old father-in-law, and even to those guests who “DON’T DANCE!” - our dance floor was full from 9pm to 12am and our guests had the best time dancing, laughing, and bonding. Not only were we happy that our guests enjoyed themselves as much as we did, we were also ecstatic that most of our guests had stayed to do the Sparkler Send-Off. And we 100% attribute that to DJ Cuban! How could they leave, when they were having so much fun?!
WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE HIM:
Even months after our wedding, friends and family can’t help but comment on how much fun they had, how much they danced, and how much they laughed on our wedding day! Some pf their comments were: “Oh my gosh, that was the most fun I’ve ever had at a wedding!”, “Your wedding was THE BEST!”, “The DJ was AMAZING! He played all the best music!” “The music was awesome!”, “I’ve never ever danced so much in my life - let alone at a wedding!”, “That was the latest I’ve ever stayed at a wedding!”, “The entire fam had so much fun and the kids were so worn out from dancing that they slept until 10am! THANK YOU!”.
The real thanks goes to DJ Cuban! Mike, thanks again for making our special day truly unforgettable!

Fantastic Music and great crowd control
Michael and his assistant were fantastic at our wedding. They got the crowd up and dancing and kept them dancing the whole night! He also helped us with our song selection and helped us craft and customize our first dance song. Thank you, guys!Sent on 10/15/2018
