Look No Further Than True DJs of Dallas
There just aren't enough awesome things to say about Michael Roos, owner and Senior DJ and I couldn't be happier that we found him. My (now) husband and I happened upon Michael and True DJs of Dallas as a recommended vendor from our venue.
From the get-go, Michael took the time to understand what vibe we were looking for, our musical tastes, the type of crowd at our wedding, and how to bridge the gap between the older, more conservative crowd and our eclectic theme and musical requests.
My (now) husband and I wanted a very different wedding -- one that would reflect every bit of our personality and be as unique as us. We decided on a Medieval/Renaissance theme with nods to Lord of the Rings, Monty Python & The Holy Grail, Game of Thrones, and The Princess Bride. We also wanted music that we loved (rock, 80's, goth metal, industrial) but didn't want to scare anyone into leaving early or not dancing. For any other DJ, this would be a nightmare of a task. Michael not only embraced our vision but had tons of ideas to contribute, making it even more epic.
From our first conversation, we hit it off instantly. It was very clear that Michael knows his music. It was exciting to know Michael not only knew of the bands I wanted to be played but also enjoys that music as well.
Our initial in-person meeting with Michael further cemented that he was the DJ for us. By nature, my (now) husband and I are introverts, but sitting down with Michael was like sitting down with a friend. It wasn't stressful, it was fun and easy-going. We could tell he knew his stuff and enjoys making each wedding/event memorable. In fact, we became great friends after the in-person meeting!
Michael also offered to be our wedding officiant since we were also looking for something very specific. We considered having our officiant dress up as the Black Knight from The Holy Grail but couldn't find the costume -- as a backup, we planned on having Gandalf perform our ceremony. He was not only on board with this, but he also mentioned adding in the "mehwedge" part from The Princess Bride before we brought it up -- Michael totally "got" us.
As our wedding day drew nearer, Michael was a total godsend and an absolute pro at what he does! He prepped us for our big day by creating our day-of timeline, he helped with the wedding flow, the table floorplans, he went over what songs to play and when, he even helped us with our vows and what all we wanted him as our officiant to say. I can't say it enough -- Michael is the bomb-diggity!
Michael is truly an expert at his craft. If you're looking for a more personalized, true-to-you event... one that everyone attending will remember and enjoy... if you truly want your day to be special, True DJs is definitely the way to go. They're not one of those cookie-cutter, cheesy, run-of-the-mill DJ teams that have the corny line dances that belong at middle-school dances. My wedding day wouldn't have been as amazing at it was without Michael and his team. They made it easy, Michael made it fun, and he made it personal. We would absolutely hire True DJs again for any event.
I have to also throw in that it's extra awesome to have gained such a great friend in Michael. His knowledge, expertise, and passion for what he does made our wedding day epic. Justin (my husband) and I are so very grateful we found him and now have such an amazing friend for life. We seriously can't recommend him enough!

Michael of True DJs is the absolute best! From our first meeting, he took the time to get to know our likes, dislikes, wants and needs for our wedding day. He literally built our wedding day timeline during the first meeting which was super helpful and helped bring our vision to life.
He was super personal, professional, responsive and ensured we had a WONDERFUL time at our wedding. I've lost count how many compliments we got about him. I would recommend him again and again!

I cannot say enough great things about Michael. I am so happy I found him. I first spoke with one of those DJs that go for around $500. The guy on the phone kept trying to push line dances (chicken dance, boot scootin' boogie etc) after I explicitly said "no way." Music is huge to me! I knew the dancing was going to be my favorite part of the wedding and I wanted our guests to have an amazing time. I had looked in a million wedding websites for DJs but I found Michael on Yelp. After reading the review, me and my then fiance decided to meet with Michael to see if we meshed.
We met with Michael talked about music for awhile. It wasn't a super technical conversation about details. Michael took the time to understand our tastes and we even just hung out and listened to a few songs to get the vibe. When we left, we looked and each other and just said "yep."
We met with Michael once more before the wedding just to make sure we had everything we were supposed to have given him and he had all the details on the guests, wedding party and timeline. He also came to both of our venues on our walk through days to meet the wedding planner and map out the plan for moving from the ceremony in the woods to the reception area 30 minutes away to meet guests before they arrived for cocktail hour.
My favorite thing about Michael was that I could trust his expertise. He knew I had some taste for more indie style, but that when people don't really know a song they don't tend to dance. Michael was able to bridge that gap beautifully and keep everyone dancing. Even my grandparents, who I have never seen dance in my entire life were dancing!
He handled everything gracefully and really knew how to read the crowd. I cannot say enough great things about him. Positive attitude, professional, and honestly a joy to be around. I am pretty anti-social with people I am not close to and I would consider Michael a friend. My wedding day was as awesome as was in huge part to him.

Michael was exceptional from the day we first met him. He was open, funny, and explained our big day in such a way that put us at ease. He helped us create something unique to who we are as a family. We knew that first meeting that we would hire True DJs of Dallas.
The process was so simple, we could select our important songs and the do not play list, right from his website. When our wedding day arrived, he came and worked out the walking order with the wedding party, asked about small details and assured us that all will be well. Everything went off without a hitch and exactly as we planned. Michael went above and beyond that day, during pictures he noticed the cake had not been delivered (we had no idea)! Immediately he called and took care of it, next thing I knew the cake was on the table. He kept track of the timeline and kept us on track, we didn’t have to worry about a thing, just enjoyed our day.
The mother of the bride needed some emotional support and Michael stepped in. The music was flawless, everyone was on the dance floor and having a good time! The grooms’ family drove from the Rio Grande Valley to North Texas and he made sure to include plenty of Tejano hits to get us going too! I’ve never heard set that meshed our families together with a mix of classic rock, new pop, country, rap and Tejano. A guest let us know that it simply was “the best wedding she has ever been to”. We can’t recommend Michael and True DJs of Dallas enough.

Absolutely wonderful! Best vendor to date. Couldn't be happier.

Truly made my wedding day memorable! So, I was at a loss for a DJ for our wedding. My venue sent me a list of preferred vendors, so this is how I found True DJs of Dallas. My husband and I met with Michael twice throughout the process. He was extremely thorough, and took the time to get to know us. He really got a feel for what we wanted. We also chose to have him officiate. He created an entire timeline for us, and really made sure everything ran smoothly. From officiating our wedding, to running the music, I really couldn't have asked for better. It was simply amazing. He knew how to feel out the crowd, and kept everyone on the dance floor. My husband and I kept having guests tell us how awesome our music was, and if they could get a CD. Hands down, best wedding ever!
Brittany · Married on 02/24/2018
Michael did great at our wedding! He helped us from the beginning starting with a reception timeline. I would have been lost without it, and he saved us so much time. He could really read the crowd, and my guests keep talking about how amazing the reception music was. He is also very fun, relatable, professional, and quick to respond. Totally recommended and would definitely hire again!

After months of procrastinating, we reached out to True DJs of Dallas very late in the wedding planning game. Within minutes of our first meeting with Michael, we knew he was the DJ that we needed at our wedding. Leading up to our big day, Michael helped us with our timeline and provided some great suggestions for making the night go smoothly. His music selection was great and he was able to quickly develop a sense for the musical atmosphere we were trying to create. On the day of the wedding, everything went very smoothly and our guests loved his work. I could not have asked for a better DJ for my wedding and his rates were very reasonable. Dealing with Michael was the easiest part of our wedding planning process.

My husband and I hired Michael from True DJS of Dallas for our once in a lifetime wedding. Michael Roos has been awesome since day 1! We met him trying to find a DJ and ended up getting our officient as well! I was able to be a "Go with the flow" kind of bride mostly because of True DJs. He had things handled from beginning to end. From the Wedding day timeline, the ceremony, and all the way to our exit. Oh, and he is a MASTER at crowd reading and played songs he saw got the crowd moving! We cant thank him enough for helping make this day perfect.
Michael, you're the man!
George · Married on 01/01/2018
We contacted Michael only 2-3 weeks before our wedding. He was willing to meet with us that very evening. He was very personable and very knowledgeable about all genres of music. He worked with us to build a timeline that would fit into our budget. In the planning phase, he promptly addressed all of our concerns. He tailored the music exactly as we asked. He arrived early before our wedding and had everything working perfectly for our big event. Michael was professional and our guests raved about the music. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. His flexibility despite our late planning helped create our perfect day.

Michael did a fantastic job keeping our guests entertained and dancing the whole night! We received many compliments on the music ... from the ceremony to our cocktail hour all the way through the very end! I cannot thank you enough for making it such a memorable night!
Nathan · Married on 11/04/2017
Working with Michael was as seamless as anyone could hope for. He has a great sense of humor and is easy to talk to and convey your personal vision to. Throughout our entire wedding planning process, Michael was easy to contact and quick to respond if there was anything we needed at all. We were able to meet with him multiple times throughout the process and talk about the kind of music we wanted and to just give him a better idea of our personalities and what we were into and how we wanted our music selection to go. The music selection was fantastic and our guests had a wonderful time dancing and just enjoying the ambiance provided by the music! Worth every penny. I would definitely recommend him to DJ any party or big gathering.
Jordan · Married on 10/13/2017
Michael is AMAZING!! He did such a great job. He officiated our wedding which made it so much more comfortable because we were able to be open with him and actually get to know him before the wedding. And he was the absolute best DJ we could have ever asked for. He read the crowd so well. And you could tell that everyone was having such an amazing time. He really made the night absolutely amazing.
Sarah · Married on 10/07/2017
Michael Roos was our DJ and he was pretty awesome. He was very flexible whenever we wanted to schedule meetings. He could really relate with our crowd. Everyone loved the music selection and had a great time on the dance floor. Definitely not a YMCA DJ! We are go glad we chose True Djs of Dallas.
Alexandria · Married on 10/07/2017
Michael Roos is the man. He's a great DJ, but the thing that really set him apart is that he helped me secretly record my own music to walk down the aisle to. I went to his studio to compose and record the music, and he mixed it so that it sounded awesome. One of the best moments of the wedding was my fiance's face when the officiant announced that the bride would be walking down to something she wrote especially for him. Cue tears from literally everyone.
All the other important things for a DJ company are there too. True DJs is great at understanding event timelines, wedding flows, floorplans, and general event planning. You can save yourself some money and just use their expertise to plan your wedding. I'd absolutely hire them for any event again. #truedjsofdallas

True Djs of Dallas is excellent! Working with Michael was a breeze. He made picking a dj and music the easiest part of wedding planning! Michael is a very personable person and will work with you to make everything as perfect as it can be!! I knew within minutes of meeting him he would be my dj, and on my wedding night I could not have had a better time!
Alex · Married on 09/23/2017
We hired True Djs of Dallas for our wedding in October. DJ Wiz did an amazing job, all the guests had a great time and were raving about the music! From the planning of the music to the day of the wedding, Michael and Wiz were very professional and organized. They worked very hard to make the planning easy on us and ensure that all of our questions were answered. Overall, I'm glad we chose to work with True Djs of Dallas for our wedding music and I would recommend them to anybody who is looking!
Timothy · Married on 07/08/2017
If your looking for a DJ that's down to earth, easy to work with, professional, knows how to read a crowd and can make an event magical then True DJ's of Dallas is who you are looking for. 5 stars isn't enough stars to rate how great he helped make our wedding. Thank you again Michael and True DJ's of Dallas.

My sister used Michael at her wedding in 2016 and he was Phenomenal, when I started planning my wedding for 2017 the first thing I told her was I wished he could be my DJ but we were trying to keep the cost of my wedding down to use more for the Honeymoon. So instead we hired someone from the family who was supposed to take care of us but instead called THE DAY BEFORE the wedding and canceled... I was in pure panic mode because I knew being that my wedding was in a bar scene that the DJ was crucial. My sister being the lovely person she is called DJ Michael on speed dial and told him what was going on and was hoping she could surprise me with him on my day unfortunately (in a good way) he had an invite for that night but worked with her in her pricing (being the DAY BEFORE my wedding) and had one of his other DJS Nick at Night avaliable not only did he show up and show out he practiced for my wedding for 24 hours before coming just to make sure he was on point! Talk about DJS that put time and dedication into their events he also showed up 3 hours early just to make sure he had it all down. We hired him til 10 but The Groom and I made sure our crowd tipped him well and ourselves because he was such a great dj he didnt mind staying an extra 30 minutes to play music as the guest exited the venue. He was the first one on the dance floor to lead the whip and nae nae and cupid shuffle (trust me i needed his lead) lol and even grabbed the single ladies and got them on the dance floor! Of course The Groom and I made the wedding amazing but Nick at Night truely pulled this wedding together and was the icing on the CAKE!!!! Can't wait for our next event with these guys! ?????????? #truedjsofdallas

BEST. DJ. EVER. Seriously--our first DJ double-booked and my mom contacted Michael because he is a preferred vendor at my venue. He was free on my wedding day and boy am I thankful! The first time we met, my mom and I were blown away at his wedding timeline process. He helped us form a wedding timeline and got a feel for how our wedding would flow. You get access to a website where that timeline is and get to pick songs for all of the different events. It's awesome! Michael contacted me multiple times before the wedding to check in. On my wedding day he got everything set up (hours early might I add) and from there it was perfect. He kept things running smoothly the entire night. He even mixed a song (I don't know what DJs call it) for my father/daughter dance. We did a break out dance to Thriller. It was such a pleasure to work with Michael. He truly cares about your big day and it's obvious. You finish doing business with him feeling like you've got a new hip uncle! Really--stop looking and book with True DJs of Dallas!

MICHAEL ROOS RULES.
I cannot accurately express how much I loved working with Michael and True DJ’s of Dallas. It was like talking and planning with an old friend – he’s so down to earth and is quick to understand personal (music) style. My husband and I grew up listening to everything from the 60s-80s and we knew that we, and our wedding guests, would enjoy that genre of music for the wedding. Everything he played was absolutely perfect. He was gracious enough to even download a song that my mom requested that wasn’t in his library (Mary Poppins – super obscure but meant a lot to us). From the quick and easy planning process to the day of, Michael’s services were better than anything we could have imagined. Honestly I wish we could get married again just to experience the whole process again. My favorite part? The monthly WOOOHOOO emails reminding us of our wedding countdown!

I couldn't have been more please with the experience I had using Michael as my DJ at the wedding. From the very first conversation we had, I knew I needed him as the DJ and when I hired him, he proceeded to exeed all of my expectations. He was so great to work with and would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
Kimberly · Married on 03/25/2017
We love Michael with True DJs of Dallas!! Michael was super responsive along the way, always professional, an AWESOME DJ, and an all-around great guy. The sound equipment was top-notch and versatile, and he really kept the crowd energetic and on the dance floor the whole evening! Michael also provided us with excellent advise about the timeline, which really helped us out. Michael was a phenomenal DJ, and we would recommend him over and over again!!
Elyse · Married on 01/14/2017
My husband and I were so lucky to have found Michael and the True DJs of Dallas. We did not get to have Michael as the actual DJ at our wedding, but he was able to recommend who would be best for us from his company. Michael was very thorough and communicative throughout the whole process. I never had a question that the music would not be just right for the event. He pays attention to detail and works with you to plan the perfect timeline for the event that also reflects your musical style and overall taste. We gave a list of recommendations for the cocktail hour and reception. All of my top requests were played and Wiz was able to get a feel for my music aesthetic and played songs that I loved and either forgot to request or hadn't heard yet. I would highly recommend using the True DJs of Dallas. You will have one less thing to worry about if you let them take care of your music.
Devan · Married on 01/13/2017
My husband and I absolutely loved having Michael as our officiant and DJ on our big day. We asked for a fun, upbeat, relaxed vibe for our big day and he met those expectations. He had our friends and family laughing and dancing all night. He played all of our requests and listened to all of our wants and needs. He helped me with every detail up until the big day. I would highly recommend him for any occasion.
