We danced ALL night!
The DJ was one of the most important venders to me. Mike was just great! I interviewed more DJs than any other venders. He wanted the autonomy to read the dance floor which I was a little nervous about but he was so right. Our dance floor was packed all night! If he noticed a song wasn't a hit he changed it quickly. The music was great with lots of variety. Mike himself was also polite, professional, and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend!Sent on 10/20/2020

Mike is awesome! He takes the time to figure out what we as a couple wanted for our music and executed beautifully. I only wish we had more time to dance and enjoy the music at our wedding. Mike had a tough task ahead of him at our wedding as we had a World Series viewing party behind our venue and the bulk of guests were in and out of the reception space all evening. Regardless he took it in stride and made the night memorable and fun. Mike also is very detail oriented and punctual and will keep your event moving according to your timeline with ease! No need to stress if working with Mike. Thank you, Mike!!Sent on 11/18/2019

Dancing all night long!
Mike was one of the last wedding vendors we booked, and after reading his glowing reviews online, he seemed like “the guy.” We couldn’t have been more right! If I could give Mike 6 stars on this site, I would. If you live in the Northern VA/D.C./MD area, and you don’t hire Mike to be your DJ, you are making a huge mistake!Sent on 10/12/2019
Mike met with us a few weeks before the wedding to talk through logistics of the evening and through some of our “do not play” song requests. We were at first skeptical, because Mike does not take song requests (He will take about 10 requests if there are songs you have to hear at your wedding/event). We decided to trust Mike and not give him any requests. We let him do his thing. I cannot emphasize enough that our dance floor NEVER had a dull moment. Mike read the room and played songs that he knew our guests would dance to.
Mike played song after song after song. There was never a break between songs – one song flowed seamlessly into the next! He didn’t interrupt the music with unnecessary announcements – you never even noticed he was there throughout the dance portion of the evening! I overheard guests while they danced, saying: “I have to go to the bathroom, but I just can’t miss the next song!” Forget the photobooths, and just hire Mike to keep your guests dancing all night long! The multi-color/disco uplighting lit up and changed to the music, adding to the fun. When he turned that on, our guests literally gasped. My maid of honour had a lot of guests telling her how amazing the DJ was!
Mike was easy to work with the whole way through. He always let us know when he received our payments, and answered e-mails the same day I sent them. I wish every wedding I went to would hire Mike, because then I know it would be a blast! Guests told us it was one of (if not the most fun) weddings they have ever been to. I know a huge part of this was thanks to Mike!
It is always a joy when I get a chance to work with Mike. He is a true professional and when I see he is my DJ, my stress level is greatly reduced knowing everything will go well.
Mike is the most professional DJ I have worked with. Any bride and groom would be so pleased to have him provide their music.
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.
