Mike is amazing!! We hired him to be the DJ at our wedding and he went above and beyond. I first met Mike when searching for chairs, which we order from his wife. Right away I knew that he Mike would be great! He knew what questions to ask and best of all I could tell that he loved his job. He helped us select songs, worked with us on our timeline, showed up early and did an excellent job making special announcements. He is also really good a reading a crowd, he played softer music during our sit down dinner and smoothly transition into songs that kept our guest dancing all night. He also knew the exact moment my husband and I wanted to stop dancing for our first song! We received so many compliments regarding the music and overall experience.Sent on 02/22/2017
We also ended up hiring his son for the photo both and his daughter as our photographer and we could not be happier. I would highly recommend Mike and his whole family for a wedding or special event.

Awesome! Great DJ
Michael Carcano did our wedding on March 29 in Brea and he KILLED IT! Our guests had a blast and were on the dance floor ALL night. He was easy to work with, very professional, and a lot of fun. He played most of our song selections and made some great suggestions of his own. DEFINITELY recommend!Sent on 04/04/2019

Mike was awesome!
We met Mike at a bridal show and from the moment we met him he hooked us in. He is super friendly, energetic, outgoing and funny, all of the qualities you want in a DJ. He made sure the entire night was upbeat and fun. We had a lot of compliments from our guests about him. I think it says a lot about a DJ when they have the dance floor full the entire night, that was Mike. We decided to do a flash mob for our first dance and him and his son put the track together and it was perfect. We told him the genres we wanted played and his song selections were on point. He also did our uplighting which looked beautiful. Their entire family works together in an office in Tustin. If you need a photographer, photo booth, chair or linen rentals, lighting, draping, or a DJ their family does it all. They made our wedding perfect. We highly recommend Mike and his family.Sent on 04/01/2019

Everything you read on all of these reviews is TRUE. They are the best thing that happened to our wedding. Ou original DJ bailed on us a little over a month before our wedding on 12.23.18 and we found them by chance on WeddingWire and we could not have been more lucky. Mike was so very flexible in pricing and did everything he could to make our reception as amazing as our vision was and he exceeded our expectations. We received so many compliments on the decor, the music and the DJ himself. We will 110% recommend to all of our friends and we will hire them again for your own events. You will not be sorry! We couldn't have been happier with their service.Sent on 12/29/2018

Best DJ we could have asked for!
I met Mike at a wedding expo in early January 2018. I went specifically to the expo to meet with DJs, as at the time, this was one of the only wedding vendors my (now) husband and I had left to hire. Hiring the perfect DJ was top priority for both of us, and we had already met with quite a few potential DJs that didn’t fit the bill. After chatting with Mike, we decided to meet him at his office in the following weeks. Everything about our meeting with Mike blew us away – he was professional, friendly, and it was obvious he knew what he was doing. Carcano DJ is a family-owned business, and they treat you like family. Both my husband and I felt a connection with him, so we decided to hire him (as well as his son Ryan’s photo booth company, Capture Photo Booths) for our wedding. And what a great decision that was! Mike was a true professional on our wedding day, his MC’ing was friendly and funny but not cheesy and did not steal the show from us and our guests. And his music was on point! Not once was our dance floor ever empty, and every single one of our guests – young and old – had a blast on the dance floor all night! We could not have asked for a better DJ and will forever credit Mike for helping make our wedding perfect!Sent on 12/03/2018

We hired Carcano DJ Audio Visual & Lighting for our wedding and had an awesome experience! Mike is very personable and professional! Our wedding lighting and gobo design were beautiful. The music selection was great and our guests had a fun time! I highly recommend Carcano DJ Audio Visual & Lighting!Sent on 11/07/2018

Mike and Ryan are the best! We found them really early on in our planning process and they were incredibly helpful. We were only looking for a DJ but came away with lighting, chairs and drapes as well. They were willing to work with our budget and even went out of their way to accomadate us on things like a wedding dance music mix. Both Mike and Ryan are great at what they do and are very straightforward with their responses. They have so much experience and pointed out a ton of different do’s and don’t’s we never thought to consider because of our lack of knowledge with wedding planning. We had tons of people tell us afterward that our wedding was one of the best, if not the best, and most fun wedding they’d ever attended. We absolutely couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Everything was so stressful leading up to the day for various reasons but Ryan and Mike were solid throughout the entire process. Please don’t hesitate to go with these guys. They’re a family-run business and you couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with. Thank you Ryan and Mike and all the folks at your company!Sent on 08/22/2018

Carcano DJ really brought my vision to life. From their very professional manner of operation, to helping me create the vision of how I wanted my reception to look, to how it all came together. Excellent communication all step of the way till you are satisfied. Will definitely be recommending them to allSent on 08/22/2018
My friends and family. They were just great. Thank you

I want to thank Mike and Ryan for everything they did to make our wedding special. A truly professional group of people and fun to celebrate your special day with. Everything was flawless from the music for our ceremony and reception to the gobo light and photo booth. Everyone had such a great time thanks to you!Sent on 04/23/2018

There is nothing more convenient during the wedding planning process, than finding the right vendor for one service and then learning they offer other services you need. That was our experience with Carcano DJ Audio Visual & Lighting. We were initially interested Carcano for its DJ services and ended up using their services for much more, including master of ceremonies, Chiavari chairs, pipe & drape, lighting, etc. On top of that, they referred us to our wonderful photographer Stefani Welsh Photography, our fun and modern photo booth vendor Capture Photo Booths and even part of our evening entertainment, the talented duo Bolero Soul. Carcano is a great family-owned business and the quintessential one-stop-shop. We are truly lucky we met Mike and Debbie early on in our wedding planning process.Sent on 04/07/2018

Wedding planning was stressful enough, so finding the right team felt like we had to move mountains to make it happen. BUT... DJ Carcano was HANDS DOWN the best and most professional DJ service we've ever experienced.Sent on 06/27/2018
We've been to our fair share of weddings, and most of the time the music wasn't that great. :( So we wanted to make sure that our guests had a good time, and the music would please all ages. Debbie worked with us to make sure that would happen.
They were professional from start to finish, reliable, super flexible, and easy to work with! They were always a phone call or email away. On the day of our wedding, Ryan was our DJ and we couldn't have been happier. We got married in March of this year, and, up to this day, people are still talking about how much they loved the music played at our wedding.
If you're looking for a DJ, STOP LOOKING NOW and hire DJ Carcano! Seriously... you will not be disappointed. Thank you guys for such a wonderful evening, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to be a part of our wedding.

My husband and I booked Carcano DJ for our wedding and they did a fantastic job. Our guest enjoyed all the music and danced until we had to leave. We also used them for our chairs and couldn’t have been happier. Thank you for helping make our day so special.Sent on 11/15/2017

Mike was THE perfect DJ! He provided our chairs, fantastic night lighting for our venue, and a complete DJ set to accompany his MC'ing. We could not have asked for a better host/MC on our amazing day!Sent on 09/06/2017

Our wedding was this past Sunday and man, it was a PARTY. I heard of Mike from a colleague of mine and was able to have a meeting with him. From the second I met him, I knew we would hire him and his company. We had a very lengthy meeting, but I felt so at ease the entire time. I asked SO many questions, and Mike was able to answer them all without hesitation.Sent on 09/06/2017
I came back a couple of days later to meet the DJ assigned to my wedding, his son, Ryan. Ryan was also the owner of the photo booth company we hired (which was awesome as well, btw). Ryan was so sweet and after meeting with him as well, we put down a deposit.
The day of my wedding came, and Ryan was an absolute hit. He kept the dance floor completely packed the entire night. SO many of my family and friends complimented us on how good of a DJ we had and how they had never seen so many people on a dance floor. Ryan knew exactly the flow of the party and the transitions were flawless. He also took requests and made all of my guests happy with the variety of music he was able to play. One thing we said from the beginning was that we not only wanted a wedding, but we wanted a kick-ass party with everyone dancing. Ryan was able to deliver that and I am sure people will talk about that for many years to come. Thank you for making our wedding a hit!

DJ Mike and his son were excellent! They did a great job of keeping all of our guests informed and entertained and the music selection was superb, if we were to do it all again we would choose them again and again.

Hire Carcano DJ for your wedding and you will not be upset. From our first meeting, I knew he was going to be our wedding DJ. His enthusiasm and love is more than evident. He also provides chair, lighting, draping, video/audio so he was a one stop shop for our wedding needs. He and his team were always to quick to respond via email, text, or phone call.Sent on 05/31/2017
We will definitely be using him for any future events.

Overall had an amazing experience. We booked Chiavari chairs and the DJ through Carcano, and we could not have been happier with the services that were provided. Everyone was very prompt and helpful!! Debbie truly went out of here way to help with the ceremony setup!! The DJ was great and really kept the flow of the reception going!!Sent on 07/11/2017

Working with Carcano DJ for our wedding was so fun and easy! My husband and I met with Mike and he gave us the rundown of the business, gave us a demo of the equipment and lighting available, and was just so obviously excited about his business that we couldn't help but be excited too. Once we booked them, they sent us some paperwork asking which songs we wanted to use for certain parts of the ceremony and the reception. My husband and I struggled with this, so we pretty much only provided them with the bare minimum, but on the day of the wedding Ryan (our DJ) absolutely nailed all of the music. The biggest thing that stood out was that my husband wanted a Blue October song for the wedding party and our grand entrance to the reception, but most people haven't heard of Blue October so the song wasn't recognizable and also had a rather long, slow intro before picking up in speed. So literally the night before the wedding I emailed them asking if we could change that song to a popular Justin Timberlake song. They said absolutely, no problem. So entering the reception, the wedding party was all introduced to the JT song and when it was my husband's and my turn to walk out we were expecting the same JT song... so imagine our surprise and excitement when we realized Ryan had cut the original Blue October song to start at the chorus for us and my husband still got to walk out to his favorite song! We were so incredibly happy with Carcano DJ for taking the initiative like that and making our night just that much more special. As for the music the rest of the night, we got so many comments from our guests about how perfect the music was all night long. We loved working with Mike and Ryan and would absolutely recommend them to anyone and everyone!Sent on 04/13/2017
