Where to even begin... The short review: HIRE THIS MAN FOR YOUR EVENT NOW!!!! The long review: Music is an extremely important aspect of my life, and my new husband and I knew from the start that we wanted our wedding to be a major dance party. I'm very detail-oriented and pretty picky lol, so I painstakingly researched DJs from afar for our mini-destination wedding in Lake George. Mike's reviews were spot on - he is the absolute best!! His energy and positivity are contagious, and he is a professional class act. Guests were asking us for his contact information before the night was even over, and my mom (another picky lady hehe) raved about Mike. The dance floor was packed all night long - our dream come true! - and Mike helped us seamlessly avoid some almost alcohol-induced-bloopers lol. Planning with Mike was a piece of cake - he is organized, so easy to reach, quick to respond, and he understood our vision from the get-go. Just a really great guy who you definitely want DJ-ing your event. And we'd totally recommend the Mirror Me photo booth and uplighting -
they were exactly what the night called for, and the photo guestbook was wonderful! Thank you so much, Mike!!!

Extremely welcoming. Knew just what we wanted with our theme and was understanding with our circumstances.
Can’t wait for the big day
Mike is not only the best DJ around, but also one of the easiest, kindest person to work with. From our first conversation, I knew that he was the perfect fit for us. He was always so organized and got back to us right away. Mike even helped us out with so many other wedding related questions, and we appreciated his honesty. He had the dance floor packed all night long! He made everything so easy, and was a pleasure to work with!! Thank you so much Mike for everything- you are awesome!!

DJ Mike was fabulous!! He was great to work with in the weeks and days leading up to our wedding, and he kept the dance floor packed all night! He also worked especially hard to get us a monogram gobo on very short notice--and it was perfect! We give DJ Mike/Music Man Entertainment our highest recommendation!

Music Man was amazing!
We were incredibly blessed to have the Music Man perform at our wedding. In an upstate NY wedding, with almost two feet of snow falling in 24 hours, he was able to make our reception event fully prepared and with complete dedication and enthusiasm. Music Man was amazing. The music choices for the event were all perfect and kept the crowd going until the very end of the reception! We would hands down choose him again and would recommend him to anyone! Thank you!

Perfect DJ for our wedding
Amazing DJ. He was very accommodating and professional. The photo booth was a hit, and no one wanted to leave the dance floor. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!

Best DJ out there!
Mike was such a pleasure to work with. As soon as we contacted him via wedding wire, he had a lightening response and made sure he was capable of meeting our needs. He kept the room alive and made sure to play various types of songs to fit the mood of the room. It truly was a great time and Mike is the BEST DJ out there.

We could not be happier with our experience with Music Man. Steven was so helpful, accessible, and understanding throughout the whole process. He brought a great energy to our wedding, bonded with guests, and catered to exactly what we were looking for for our small wedding! I cannot speak highly enough about Steven and the service we received from him and Mike at Music Man!!

Provided the best soundtrack to our wedding night
Mike from Music Man Entertainment provided the "perfect" soundtrack to our wedding day. We were able to plan over the phone with him, which made planning convenient and easy. Any special requests, songs, artists, etc., he found and played during our reception. Many of our guests complimented the music played during the reception. The music he played represented who we are, and not what he felt would be appropriate dance music. He had the appropriate amount of decor lights at the venue, and music volume was perfect for dancing, but not too loud where you could not have a conversation without shouting. We could not have asked for a more perfect night, and Mike definitely helped make that happen. I hope to attend a wedding where Mike is the DJ so I can have more opportunity to dance to the music selections he uses.
We would definitely recommend Mike from Music Man Entertainment for any venue where you need the perfect volume of music to accompany your special day. He is professional, accommodating, and very friendly, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Gabe’s 6th Birthday party
Kids had an awesome time! Mike rocks!
The mirror photo booth was a big hit!
Stacey · Married on 10/27/2018
Mike from Music Man was awesome! Our wedding ceremony got moved inside due to the weather and he came up with an awesome idea for the lighting as I came down the isle. He also made sure that everything we wanted went smoothly and was able to help suggest songs for different things when we needed suggestions. The Magic Mirror he offers was an awesome addition, everyone loved it! We had a blast with him as our DJ and would reccomend him to anyone looking for a DJ!

Amazing DJ- October Bride and Groom
Music Man Entertainment was amazing!! We had our wedding in October and people are still telling us what a great DJ we had. Mike was super flexible, responsive, and played all the songs we wanted. We couldn't be happier with our choice- he kept everyone on the dance floor all night. One of my favorite parts of the night was when he played our last dance song (all the small things by Blink 182) as requested but then surprised us with a follow up Blink song!! it was amazing. You will not be disappointed!!
THANK YOU MIKE!

My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of Mike Garassi of Music Man Entertainment.
Mike is an incredible DJ and all around great guy who is truly passionate about making each wedding the best it can be. Mike's enthusiasm is clear at each step of the planning process, and is further evidenced by his thorough documentation of song and genre preferences.
Mike periodically checked in with us throughout the reception to discuss his song plans based on the current energy level on the dancefloor (which in our case was always high) and strategically incorporated the traditional wedding songs and activities (bouquet and garter toss, mother/groom dance, etc) at points where they best fit with the energy and vibe in the ballroom. He even accomplished the impossible by getting every single guest to do the chicken dance.
To anyone reading this review, I sincerely hope you are fortunate enough to work with Mike, as we are so grateful for the experience he created for us and have no doubts he will do the same for you.

AMAZING! Would highly suggest using the Music Man. He was super helpful from the start. Genuinely loves what he does.
He was so willing to help! Such a genuinely nice guy and was also an amazing DJ. Very flexible and energetic. He was so willing to help at any second with whatever and showed interest in all of the details. Would highly reccomend.

The Best DJ
We booked Mike for our wedding in October and couldn't be happier with that decision. I had seen Mike DJ a bunch of parties before, be it school functions, friends and families weddings, or anniversary parties, and he always does such a great job. It was a no-brainer that he would be our first choice, and he lived up to all expectations and beyond.
Throughout the whole process of planning, day of, and after, Mike was a genuinely caring guy who wanted us to have the best time we could. We asked what probably were pretty dumb, amateur questions, but he never made us feel bad and had a positive spin on everything. He was always happy to take a call from us to help us work out some details, or offer suggestions, or just to say "hey no worries, everyone's going to have a blast and that's what they'll all remember".
During the reception itself, Mike had the music perfect for our tastes and the type of atmosphere we were looking for. He had the whole room in the palm of his hand, but never interjected himself in a way that felt like the spotlight was on him.
We also signed up to use his "magic mirror" instead of a traditional photo booth. The number of people we had come up to us during the party as well as after talking about how fun it was, was amazing. If you have the chance, definitely get it, you won't regret it.
Mike is the best DJ you could ask for, genuinely wants you to be stress free, and have fun. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Look no further for a DJ
Mike is truly the best in the business. From the day we met Mike we knew he was the DJ for us. He is extremely professional, organized and full of energy!! His clear goal is to make sure his clients and the guests are happy. He is not just a DJ but has a full understanding of event/wedding planning. The music at our wedding was a very important component as I love to dance! We wanted to ensure that people were partying and dancing all night long and Mike delivered! He is able to read a crowd and know exactly what he needs to play to keep that party going. We used his uplighting and monogram which just took our wedding to the next level, everyone was thoroughly impressed with how it all looked! On top of being our DJ, Mike also helped with our ceremony music. We sat down with him a month before the wedding and he helped choose songs for everything we needed to choose songs for. With there being millions of songs our there it was nice to utilize Mike’s expertise. Working with Mike was really such a pleasure, he is not only a great DJ but an awesome person. He made the process so easy and fun and his energy level is contagious! You cannot help but smile and be excited around him. He is the type of DJ you want to amp up the party at your wedding!

Great Wedding DJ
We booked Mike about 18 months out from our wedding. He drove almost an hour to meet us and spent another hour an a half getting to know us and chatting and telling us what to expect from him as our DJ. He was open to our calls, texts and emails anytime leading up to the wedding answering any questions we had.
On the wedding day Mike was easy to work with and was great working with all of our vendors to assure our day went as we planned. He was quick to meet changes as we brought them to him. His mirror photo booth was a hit and was great to walk away with some tangible photos from our wedding night as we left the venue.
I highly recommend Mike as your DJ and photo booth guy.

AMAZING!! Wonderful to work with!!
Mike Garrasi was incredible to work with. From start to finish he was a dream. Anytime I had a question, a year or even the day of my wedding, he responded immediately. He would call to clarify specific information to make sure everything would run the day of our wedding smoothly. The day of our wedding, he was checking in on us, making sure everything was going well and played music that got our friends and family on the dance floor!!! He honestly did not disappoint, and wedding planning is stressful and hiring him was the least stressful of them all! I knew he'd knock it out of the park! Thank you, so much Mike, for making our wedding amazing!! You are a fantastic DJ, and I will recommend you to anyone and everyone if they need to hire one! Thank you so much for making our wedding something to remember!! Brides, Grooms in the Capital Region, if you want people dancing and great jams playing, hire Music Man Entertainment!!
Paige · Married on 09/30/2018
Mike was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He was available anytime I wanted to talk or meet. He took control and made sure I had nothing to worry about on my wedding day. You would not be disappointed!
Chloe · Married on 09/29/2018
We couldn't speak higher of Mike! We would recommend him to anyone. He was amazing since day one of booking him. Anything you need, he is there for you. He is so passionate about what he does and it is truly shown on the day of the wedding. He knew exactly what we wanted and exceeded our expectations. He is so organized and made the wedding go so smoothly. Hands down, Mike is just the best!
Cody · Married on 09/23/2018
Working with Mike Garrasi was an absolute pleasure. He was prompt in his responses and answered any questions that we had. Mike introduced us to our DJ, Steven Simboli. We hired Steven to do the music for our wedding reception. Both Mike and Steven made it known that they were available for any questions or assistance to make sure that things went smoothly. We even got to meet with Steven in person before the event to provide a music list and go over the event.
The great first impressions started the second Steven arrived at the event. He showed up with plenty of time to get set up and gave us confidence that we were in good hands. He was an absolute hit with everyone at the party. He got along with all of our guests, took song requests, and kept the music and energy going. He's also very good at reading the room and adjusting accordingly. Steven has a great personality that keeps a happy and fun atmosphere going throughout the event.
I will certainly be going with Music Man Entertainment (and hopefully Steven) for any of my future parties and events.

We couldn’t ask for a better DJ!!! Mike went above and beyond and made our day perfect! He worked really hard to make sure everything was running smoothly. He drove to CT for our wedding and made sure he was there way ahead of time to set up! The music was on point the whole night and gave us such a fun reception that had everyone dancing. He is genuinely a great guy and we couldn’t of felt so much more at ease to know he was our dj on such an important day! We highly recommend booking him! Thank you Mike for making our day so special!

Corporate Event - Steven DJ'ed 2 of our college reunion events this past weekend - a Reception and a Picnic. He was great! He was so personable and easy to work with as we were discussing the events beforehand, and when he arrived he was on time and flexible about his set up location at the event. He was wonderful interacting with guests and responding to requests. At each event he played different music to create the perfect atmosphere. I can't wait to book him for our events again next year!
Sarah · Married on 09/21/2018
Mike is the BEST! He is full of energy and ready to make your wedding night the greatest wedding all of your relatives and friends have ever been to. He provided all of our music for us, including the ceremony music. Everything was perfect. He takes care of so much, and even provides awesome uplighting (which I recommend). Our favorite thing about Mike is that he genuinely wants to make sure you, and everyone that is there for you, is having a good time. He runs everything by you, even when family members make crazy requests. He worked well with all of our vendors and made us feel like we didn't have to worry about a thing. He is just an overall good person, and great to be around. Our wedding was a blast because of him! MY ADVICE: book him ASAP! We booked him a year and a half out because we heard he gets booked out fast!
