Unlike most DJ companies, this story begins at an extracurricular activity fair at the University of Connecticut.
The enthusiasm and tenacity of Dan Warren – Promotions Director at the time – drew a 17-year-old Torgo to the WHUS Radio booth in the Student Union, and he became hooked almost immediately. Having dabbled in the business due to his father’s separate DJ company, he decided to try out radio. Several years of broadcasting led to a position at Sirius Satellite Radio (pre-merger with XM) and a well-regarded radio show.
After graduation and the lovely jobs/economic situation of 2009-2011, Torgo began work with a local DJ service in Corning where he remained for four years, building up an immaculate reputation and invaluable experience. Finally deciding to take matters into his own hands, Torgo Entertainment debuted as a company in January 2015, and things seem to head upward from here.
(The name Torgo comes from Manos: The Hands of Fate, for those that wish to know. No other DJ used the name when the moniker first saw use, and the name is both easy to pronounce and spell.)
Torgo Entertainment’s most popular package offers a consultation, an MC, microphones, a sound/PA system, and travel expenses. He can also include a do-not-play list, liability insurance, and one event per day. Along with the current Top 40 hits, Torgo can work in genres like:
In order to meet the individual needs of a couple, Torgo Entertainment can also provide uplighting for the event.

The Perfect Wedding MC and DJ!
Torgo did an amazing job DJing our wedding at Glenora Wine Cellars! The big choice of a Dj/band for your wedding can be anxiety causing. What a great find, Mike is the perfect choice. No need to deal with the larger DJ companies that nickel and dime you for each speaker and light. Responsive, professional and flexible from the start: he took care of all of our sound equipment needs for both our ceremony and the reception. We were one of those couples who gave him a laundry list of song requests prior to the big day. I could tell the work and thought he put into his entire set. The bride and groom did not leave the dance floor all night! I encourage anyone considering Mike's services to take a look at the video he has posted to facebook of our wedding on 5/26/19. I have received many complements from friends and family at what a great MC/DJ he was. He will have your party going well into the night!Sent on 06/06/2019

Talented, flexible, competent wedding DJ
My wife and I met Mike (the main guy behind Torgo Entertainment) at an expo where he clearly stood above the rest. After letting him know that we would love to play EDM (electronic dance music) at our wedding, he welcomed the challenge. I can confidently say that he exceeded expectations. Mike poured through 17 hours of our EDM collection, purchased fun LED lights to add to the vibe, hired multiple assistants, and provided video recordings of the event all without extra charge. I would highly recommend Torgo Entertainment.Sent on 07/03/2019

Best Experience Possible
Mike and his crew at Torgo were literally the best vendors we had. He took the time to understand us as a couple, research our requests for an electronic dance music centric wedding, combined our taste with his experience to make it appealing to a crowd, and did it while maintaining a professionalism and warm approachability. I cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 07/05/2019
