Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Emily Young - Pat's Barn - Troy, NY

On Saturday, April 19th, I DJed an Awesome “Spring” Wedding for two of my Friends!         Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Emily Young!  I’ve known Emily for years, working with her during many Wedding Receptions & Events via Mazzone Hospitality and now Events With Style!  I got to know Mike within the past year, throughout their wedding planning and he is one “Rock Solid Dude”!

They celebrated their Wedding Ceremony & Reception at a “Hot New Venue” – Pat’s Barn, which is located within the Rensselaer Technology Park in Troy, NY.

How would I describe the vibe at their Wedding Reception?  INSANE!  The Wedding Reception ROCKED!!  Plain and Simple!!   The energy not only from Emily & Mike, but all of their guests that day was just INSANE!!  They came to party and party they did!  The Dance Floor was so packed, I barely had enough room for my equipment.  The whole day was just ONE BIG PARTY!!

That day I had the pleasure of working with lot’s of Friends, who happen to be some of the BEST WEDDING PRO’S the industry has to offer!!   Jen & Staff from Mazzone HospitalityPat’s Barn Manager – April Rounds, Photographer Rob Spring, Dave Bigler & Crew of Dave Bigler Wedding Photos & Films, Kara & Evan of Anthology Design Studio, Make Me Fabulous and For The Love of Pie!!  What a TEAM!!

Below are 2 really GREAT FILM’S Dave Bigler put together for Mike & Emily.  They both Rock!  You have to check them out!

The 1st Film is titled – “Vendor Fun”!

The 2nd Film is a Longer Version titled – “Emily & Mike’s Wedding At Pat’s Barn”

Just after Emily & Mike got back from their Honeymoon they gave me 5 STAR REVIEW on WeddingWire!!  I’ve posted what they wrote below.

“Being in the industry, it’s always hard to choose who you want to work with for your big day because you know so many qualified and amazing vendors.  However, from the moment I met Mike, over 5 years ago I knew he would DJ my wedding, then it was just a matter of getting my groom! When the time came, it was a no brainer to choose Music Man Entertainment, we even worked our date selection around what Mike had available. From before we were even engaged until the very last minutes of our wedding reception, Mike was nothing but amazing, professional, and 100% on, and a great friend.  Any questions we had, he had an answer.  Any song we wanted, he knew and got it for us!  On top of that, the energy and the true love of what he does shows through in all aspects.  One of the best things about Mike is that when I thought I knew how I wanted everything, he had great suggestions and advice to ensure it was perfect. On top of that, our dance floor was packed, people were trying to dance before they were supposed to!  But once they all got up, no one sat down.  Mike kept the music going, spanning through multiple decades and genres and hit what my groom and I listen to on the head without ever really even asking. There is no question that we LOVE Mike Garrasi and Music Man Entertainment!  Thanks to him, we had the best wedding ever!” – Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Emily Young – Glenville, NY

Thank you Emily & Mike!  Love ya too!

Mr. & Mrs. Jacob & Molly Agnew - The Desmond Hotel - Albany, NY - McGarry Photography

I just received an “Incredible” 5 Star Review from Mr. & Mrs. Jacob & Molly Agnew!!  Wait, let me back up a little bit first.

I DJed Molly & Jacob’s Wedding Reception on Saturday, April 12th at The Desmond Hotel in Albany, NY.   What a PARTY!!  The Dance Floor filled with “Awesome” Family & Friends All Night!  Molly & Jacob were a “Super Cool” and “Fun” Couple to work for!  They too were on the Dance Floor mixing it up with all of their guests!!

I had the opportunity to work with Great Friends that evening – Don Edmonds of The Desmond and his “Fantastic” Staff!  I also had the chance to work with a true “Legend” in the Wedding Photography World – Brian McGarry of McGarry Photography with his Assistants – Lauren & Paul.  I’ve worked with Brian since the beginning of my career in the 1990’s!  We go way back with many Fun & Crazy Weddings!  Trust me, you would not believe the stories we could tell.  We could and should write a book someday!  Brian is CLASS ACT and Great Photographer!  His Assistant Photographers – Lauren & Paul are great too!  They all ROCK!

I can not thank Molly & Jacob enough for the “Incredible” 5 Star Review I received from them!  I’ve posted it below.  Enjoy!

“Mike was the DJ for our wedding on April 12th at the Desmond.  I cannot say enough about the level of service that Mike provided.  From our very first meeting, I felt that Mike listened and was attentive to my ideas and requests, and on the day of the event, every single thing was perfect.  Mike chose the perfect music for the dinner hour and our guests commented that, unlike many other weddings they had attended, the volume of the music was unobtrusive and allowed for easy conversation.  Prior to the event, I mentioned to Mike that we really wanted to have a classy event (and that we don’t like Rhianna!) and Mike’s choice of music during the dancing truly reflected that request. There was plenty of variety – everything from oldies to hip hop – along with plenty of slow dances which my parents appreciated and crowd favorites like “Shout.” Mike did an awesome job of introducing the wedding party, allowing me to choose a different song for each couple’s entrance which made it really personal and fun.  My sister’s Maid of Honor toast was spoken over a musical backdrop (like a soundtrack) and Mike worked with her beforehand to make sure he had every cue right.  Seriously, Mike went so far above and beyond what you would expect from a DJ and, to top it all off, he’s about the nicest guy you’d ever want to meet.  My experience absolutely exceeded all expectations.”

Let me tell you this!  It was a “Super Cool” Wedding!  Let me count the ways!!  First of all the Bride & Groom ROCKED!  As, did their guests, who NEVER LEFT THE DANCE FLOOR! They had Irish Dancers from a Local Dance Group doing a Irish Jig on the Dance Floor as their Bride Party was being announced!  The Bride & Groom’s Intro Song was “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” by The Dropkick Murphys!  As “Surprise”, Kevin the Groom, had a National Recording Artist show up to perform the Brides favorite song!  They had Mazzone Hospitality as their Caters!  They had me Lightscape the Ballroom with 18 Up Lights and a “Custom” Monogram!  And last but not least!!  I had the pleasure of working with my Great Friends – Matt Ramos & Jamaica of Matt Ramos Photography!!

Earlier this week I received an “Over The Top” 5 Star Review from Kevin & Robin!  You can check it out below!

“During our first phone call Mike made it seem as though my wedding was his top priority.  He asked about what music my bride and I listened to and we discussed our backgrounds and he got to know our personalities during our first phone call!!!  He carried that enthusiasm throughout and was even better on the big day.  My guests were blown away.  Everybody complimented us on him from a 90 year old grandmother to my boys who love to dance to hip hop.  For the all of the services he provides and the customization he puts into your wedding, his rates are ridiculously low.  Book him now before he figures it out!!!“ – Mr. & Mrs. Kevin & Robin Nicholls

Thank You Kevin & Robin!!  I wish you a “All The Best” that life has to offer!
