I recently got married on 1/19/19 at the Kapok in Clearwater. I can't begin to express my gratitude to Michael Anthony productions for helping me accomplish my dream winter wonderland wedding. I left him in total control of the lighting to give that winter feel and was just in awe when I walked in and saw it all. Michael, Frank, and his entire team that were there were all so wonderful, so professional, and so much fun!!!! the music was absolutely everything and the main thing I was looking forward to so I could let lose, lol. Frank with the videography is so experienced, gave amazing ideas that i wouldn't have thought of. He's so humble and truly wanting to capturing the entire day which i love. I keep reliving my wedding day over and over and could not have imagined it without them all making it so spectacular!!!!!Sent on 01/25/2019

Highly Recommend DJ Mike!!
DJ Mike was an an absolutely incredible DJ and entertainment professional. The uplighting he did at our venue truly transformed the reception into an elegant and luxurious space for our celebration. Mike is a personable, experienced, and engaging professional who made our wedding and reception into an event that exceeded our wildest dreams. Our guests continue to talk about how well the entertainment and lighting brought together our celebration. Thanks DJ Mike!Sent on 01/27/2019

Dreamlike DJ and Lighting Experience!
Working with Mike was a dream from the start. My husband and I met Mike at one of the many Wedding Expos in the Tampa Bay area, and we were immediately drawn in. I remember seeing his setup and thinking how professional and elegant everything looked. He had great pamphlets that we were able to bring home, and we instantly got along with him. You could tell within seconds that this company means everything to Mike. His passion just swims in his eyes!Sent on 02/17/2019
When we made the decision to book Mike, he was so easy to work with. He met us at our venue so that he could evaluate the space to determine what kind of lighting/setup would be needed, talk to us through some ideas he had, and to get an overall idea of the timeline so he knew when and where he would be needed. I would also love to GUSH about his online web service where we were able to put in all of the details about our wedding in one convenient space, and began to build song lists. You can even put comments on the songs so for example, I had him play my brother and sister-in-law's wedding song (who had just been married the previous year) and dedicated it to them. It went off without a hitch! I loved his tool and it let us tag songs we must have him play, songs we would hope he could play if he had time, and songs that we definitely did not want played.
I think the most amazing part about working with Mike is his flexibility, honesty, and passion. My husband is super passionate about music and wanted to build the cocktail hour playlist on Spotify. He and I spent countless hours listening to music, putting songs in order, etc., only to then be concerned that Mike wouldn't be able to get the playlist to work! He registered for a trial account with Spotify so that he was able to play our music during Cocktail hour which made my husband incredibly happy. He also put some uplights into the cocktail hour space which he didn’t have to do!
At our venue, we had three different spaces that would need to be wired (the ceremony space, cocktail hour, and reception). He wired everything flawlessly. I can't even remember seeing where he was for our ceremony, but the music was played beautifully and echoed throughout our ceremony space. The microphone setup worked so well and there were no audio concerns. What was SUPER cool was that my husband found a song for us to play when we were leaving the front to walk out, but he wanted it to be started exactly at a specific time (when the music explodes), let the song end, then loop it. When we turned to walk and we were announced, it started right on point and it made us cry a bit while we were walking away from the front because he FREAKING NAILED IT. I'm getting chills typing this now.
For the reception, Mike completely transformed our space. We had determined that doing piping and draping would be absolutely out of the question (SO EXPENSIVE), and Mike promised us that when he was done, we wouldn't even realize we didn't have draping. He was so spot on. Our venue space was STUNNING. We had discussed the colors (purple during intro/special dances/speeches/dinner and blue during dancing) which were done flawlessly, he had brought so many uplights to ensure the space was filled (last minute, our venue decided we could have an additional part of the reception hall and Mike made sure to accommodate this request when he could've asked to add more money to the contract - it was so surprising to me that he was ok with it and didn't ask for any more money on top of our package). We wanted some starry effects, so he made sure a blank wall in the venue was splashed with starry texture which looked SO AWESOME! I was bummed that my venue opened up part of the wall to let people get to the bar in the other room because I know Mike worked so hard on getting everything perfect! Another thing that was brilliant was our decor was based on lighting - we had tall vases with puzzle lamps on top. I had been so stressed about how to light the lamps, but Mike assured me he could get pin lights from the ceiling and light each one individually on every table. It looked so beautiful! He made sure everything was lit and it really made our table decorations come to life.
He also had some fun lights that he used during dancing, and just really made everything feel very personalized. We don't have the most outgoing family, so not a ton of dancers, but he kept the music going and switched it up where needed.
I would 100,000% recommend Mike to work with you for your wedding. His dedication, expertise, and kindness will truly win you over. If you are a fretful, anxious bride (like ME!), please believe me when I say he mad freaking MAGIC happen for our wedding. He was unbelievable to work with, has lots of ways to customize your package and experience, and truly has your best interests at heart. We thank Mike from the bottom of our hearts!!!
Jessica and Chris
(Note: Our wedding was 11/16/18 at the Four Points Sheraton in Tampa, FL on Cypress!)

An absolute pleasure!
DJ Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. We were very appreciative of the quick responses leading up to the wedding. We met him a few months before the wedding and really trusted him. The day of, I didn't really see him until the time of the ceremony, but I had full confidence that everything was set up and ready to go.Sent on 10/21/2018
During the reception, Mike added a few fun games to entertain folks. This really set the tone for the kind of fun that would follow. His music choice was perfect and followed our requirements. He also knew how to read the room and make adjustments.
Overall, I am so happy we chose Mike! I wish him all of the best!

Michael did such an awesome job being the DJ at our wedding, and also with the uplighting. We got so many compliments at the music choices he played for the reception that kept everyone out on the dance floor dancing! He also was very accommodating to our wedding day schedule and made sure I had no stress during the wedding day. We also had live music for our ceremony on our wedding day which was recommended by DJ Mike and they were absolutely amazing as well. DJ Mike will not disappoint you! Every single one of our guests had an amazing time dancing the night away!!Sent on 03/22/2018

Michael was so wonderful, I knew from the very beginning of my wedding planning that I wanted sparktacluar fountain lighting effects for my ceremony. I looked all over the state of Florida but no one offered them until I came across Michael Anthony Productions. I was so happy that he was able to help me complete my wedding look that night and we also decided to do the dancing on a cloud which was very romantic and looks great for the pictures! I would highly recommend Michael and his team for any event.Sent on 05/20/2018

10 Out of 10 Would Recommend to All!
Michael Anthony Productions DJ Entertainer and Up Lighting definitely made my wedding amazing. When people walk away from a wedding, the thing they remember the most is the experience. Michael Anthony Productions was beyond all of my expectations of what I needed in my DJ and lighting. He was so thoughtful, kind, and professional not only in our meetings before the big day, but also during my wedding. His website is very cohesive and easy to use and prices are more than fair. He helped me make my wedding what I had always imagined it to be. If you want a fantastic wedding that people will remember, you NEED to hire Michael Anthony Productions.Sent on 01/26/2019

Natalie · Married on 12/02/2017
Other than my surprise seaplane landing, DJ Michael Anthony was all the talk of our wedding. What I appreciated most about him, is that he diverted from my script when the crowd started to thin from the dance floor. He was supposed to play the slows at the end of the evening, but who would have thought a slow song was what people needed to get them on the dance floor early on. This is why he does what he does and I’m not a DJ ;) He kept people on the dance floor all night, and even joined me in rapping Ice Ice Baby to the crowd. No other DJ will keep the party rocking all night like Michael Anthony can. Thank you Michael for the beautiful wedding gift of being simply awesome!Sent on 12/30/2018

My husband and I found DJ Mike at the local bridal show and as soon as we met him, we knew he was the one! The up lighting alone made the room look a million times different and set the mood for the rest of the evening. He even brought a generator so we could have music at our ceremony on the beach! He kept everyone, including us, on schedule -which we switched up on him a few times and kept the dance floor packed. We got so many compliments on him because he knew just the right things to play to keep everyone dancing. Highly recommend this DJ!! His up lighting and service is impeccable and worth every penny.Sent on 11/30/2017

In addition, his ability to use lighting to create a space you could only dream of well he did it!!! The moment I walked into our venue and saw the lighting and monogram, it surpassed my expectations! Mike thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for making our night perfect!! You are amazing!!Sent on 01/11/2018
Meagan · Married on 10/06/2017
My husband and I got married about a month ago at the Dali museum and DJ Mike provided the DJ services both for or ceremony and reception. I felt like Mike really understood with only one simple phone call exactly what I envisioned for my wedding! He played nice and classy jazz type music during the dinner portion of the reception and chose exactly the style I described and then transitioned seamlessly to more party/dance music for the later portion. It was the perfect blend. We had our ceremony on the staircase which is part of a very large three story room and the ceremony music was perfect! I was nervous about this part as it seemed difficult to make the songs sound good in this type of room but everything sounded wonderful! Highly recommend Mike for your events!Sent on 10/31/2017
ELBALIZ · Married on 09/24/2017
Mike was amazing and delivered on everything we asked. From using cello covers for our cocktail hour, to keeping our dance floor packed with people dancing, to using our monogram we designed! He is definitely everything you would want from a dj and more! He even met with us for a walk through at our venue, when he had two other events that day. Thanks DJ Mike!Sent on 11/11/2017

DJ Mike was honestly beyond perfect from start to finish. His uplighting looked so beautiful and made my entire wedding look so expensive and classy. My Hubby and I were looking back and realized that he was the one vendor we had that we ENJOYED meeting with and getting emails from. He was so calm and professional and excited to be our DJ, it made us feel very at ease and honored. I have to say Mike 100% made our wedding as magical as it was. He did exactly what we asked and played every song we requested. His equipment sounds oustanding and he kept everyone dancing so hard my bridesmaids had to run to CVS to get band aids for their blisters. His wesbite is so easy to use and his music choices were excellently beat blended. He never played anything too loud. All our guests were dancing, even 86 yr old grandma. If this paragraph isn't enough, please read below some of my favorite parts.Sent on 04/12/2017
The ceremony - The ceremony was in a tiny little garden next to a busy street. I could hear the music so loud and clear and I love how you blended the songs and even turned it up right before I walked out. Your speakers were so clear I heard the exact part to walk out to and I cried the second I heard Canon in D start playing. Everyone was crying. They said the sound and garden combination enveloped them in the experience.
The cocktail hour - I could hear from the picture taking sessions some awesome islandy upbeat songs playing and everyone looked like they were having so much fun.
The reception - I cannot even express how beautiful your lighting was. I LOVED the hints of red on our monogram as you changed to the violet color too. The peachy blush was perfect and it looked like a masterpiece , never overly colorful or tacky. You made our venue look so much better and even more luxurious and expensive. My photographer said she didn't even need flash because you lit the place so well.
My advice ?- stop what you're doing and just book him now and EARLY

Wow!!! Thank you so much to DJ Mike!! We had such an amazing time at our wedding, and a huge part of that was due to how much fun he made the music. DJ was great since the moment I contacted him. He was always available to talk, text, or e-mail. I was never worried about a thing with him. His online portal was SO easy to use made picking the songs, and putting which song for which event was super easy. DJ Mike stayed an additional hour when we realized we didn't have enough time booked. He was great with everything. I would recommend him to anyone. We had a blast and DJ Mike is a huge reason for that. Thank you thank you thank you!!!! :)Sent on 03/28/2017
