Mike Garrasi from Music Man Entertainment was by far the best DJ ever! My husband I have always been entertainers, hosting parties and get-together's for our family and friends. We knew we had a reputation to uphold, and that meant having nothing less than perfect with the best DJ and emcee we could find. After interviewing other DJ's in the area, we knew Mike was the perfect guy for the job.
He is so upbeat, friendly, easy to work with, and by no means cheesy. He has all the latest technology, not only for his music and equipment, but also for his lighting capabilities. He was able to give us our dream wedding within our budget, and at the end of the day, delivered more than we expected.
The dance floor was packed all night long, and it was by far the best wedding I could have ever dreamed of! All our guests still talk about how they danced all night long, and it was such a party. We couldn't have been happier with Mike and what he did for us!

We knew that our DJ selection would either make or break our reception and after speaking with Mike for over an hour during our initial conversation, I was confident that he would do a great job. Mike did not disappoint and played a key part in helping make our wedding one that our guests still rave about. Mike made sure he knew our tastes and our style and played music that kept our guests on their feet and on the dance floor all night long. Mike was professional, energized, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to any bride in the Albany area!

Mike was the DJ at our wedding. I had never heard of him and wasn't referred by anyone but the second I talked to him on the phone I knew he was going to be great. He worked with all my ideas, let us choose the playlist and kept in touch with us many times before our big day. On our wedding day he was so professional and guided everyone in their part, like the speeches and the introductions. Our dance floor was PACKED all night long. I've been to many weddings since with other DJ's and none have come close to how well Mike did. His prices are also better than all the others. If you live around the capital region in NY choose Music Man Entertainment - he is the perfect wedding DJ!

I cannot even express how wonderful it was to work with Mike! From the first phone call with him, to our initial meeting (where he spent over 2.5 hours with us!), to our calls/emails along the way, he was just wonderful! But on the day that it all really mattered, our wedding day, I knew I did not have to worry about our DJ at all. I knew Mike would be there on time, would be dressed appropriately for our wedding, play all the music we discussed, and keep our wedding going smoothly. Mike did all that and more! If you want a worry free DJ experience and one who your guests will talk about long after your wedding (our guests still rave about Mike a year later!), than I suggest you book Mike for your wedding! Thanks again Mike, you're wonderful!!! ~Amy and Scott Noel (Wedding date: March 20, 2010)

Mike did an awesome job for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. Everyone enjoyed his music. He kept everyone moving on the dance floor. There wasn't many who were sitting. He is truly a superb professional and is great at what he does. Thanks so much Mike!

Mike Garassi was awesome! At all of our meetings, he genuinely listened to what we wanted for our reception and delivered the services exactly as promised. He was fun and full of energy the day of the wedding. Mike loves what he does and it shows in every way. Everyone danced all night long! We had a blast!

Mike Garrasi was the best DJ we could ask for. He played lots of great music and kept the party going for all six hours of our reception. He has a great personality and was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend him to any bride and groom who are looking for an excellent DJ who will make sure to make your wedding a day to remember!!!!

We officially tied the knot on October 12th and were fortunate enough to have Mike as our DJ. Mike came HIGHLY recommended by numerous people in the Capital Region. Five minutes into our first meeting together over a year ago, I knew he was going to throw us a PARTY. Mike amazed me when we met one month before the wedding, with his post-it notes, highlighters and files. His organization and attention to detail made me so incredibly happy. Mike remembered everything we requested, and was more than happy to satisfy our "wild and crazy" ideas.... he even helped us pull off a flash mob style conga line, father of the bride speech accompanied by music, and a wedding party dance number.
My husband and I cannot stress enough how absolutely incredible Mike was to work with. His energy was contagious and he had the entire dance floor packed the whole night. Mike has true talent - he knows his music, and more importantly follows his intuition, reading the audience and knowing exactly what to play and when, to get the guests moving. We only had to give Mike a short list of our favorite songs for him to pick-up on our vibe and understand our style.
We had all our faith in the world in Mike. To us, music was one of the most important elements of our wedding, and I can honestly say that we did not worry about this once! We trusted Mike and he BLEW US AWAY, as we knew he would.
Three weeks later our guests are still raving about our wedding, and how the whole night was filled with so much energy and laughter. That is in LARGE part thanks to Mike.
Mike - we only hope we get to work with you again some time in the future!

Mike was excellent to work with and did an amazing job at our wedding. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone had a blast. We were married on site and wanted modern ceremony music and a lot of country music during the reception. Mike was more than accommodating and very organized. The uplighting and monogram he provided were awesome too :) Thanks again and great job!

Michael was wonderful to work with. From the first phone call meeting almost two years ahead of the wedding date to the week of he was enthusiastic and on board with giving my guests a good time. He listens to and adheres to all requests from the couple and will run things by you before playing them. He made the night run so smoothly that we got to enjoy ourselves knowing we were in good hands. Your night we be right on track with Mike!

Mike was always very upbeat and professional. Played great music and was there for whatever I needed him for! I didn't have to worry about organizing a thing my wedding day, I just got to enjoy it all. Had plenty of complements the whole night about how everyone liked him. Great job! Would highly recommend and would definitely hire him again! You won't be disappointed!

The dj was the most important thing to me and to my husband. We wanted the best there is to make sure our guests had a good time. We heard Mike Garassi of Music Man Entertainment was the best. We heard right. His energy is electric and he rocked the reception from
start to finish! We could not have been happier with him! Five stars across the board!!!!!!!!

My husband and I had music man entertainment dj our wedding reception at longfellows and I cannot say enough good things about Mike. From our introduction to our last dance, everything was perfect. We only provided song choices for the wedding "staples" and left the rest up to Mike, he did a fantastic job! Every song that he played I found myself saying "I love that song!" and knew the exact music that our guests would all enjoy and the uplights were beautiful. Mike was so attentive to our every need and made sure that everything ran flawlessly. We could not be any happier and every couple should be lucky enough to have Mike there with them on their wedding day. Thank you mike, you rock!

Mike was amazing from the moment we met him. I met him at a bridal show with my mom, sister, and godmother. The thing I remember that made him stand out was that he wanted it to be all about the bride and groom...not promoting his business every time he got on the mike. I have been to weddings where all the DJ does is promote himself and its soo cheesy. Mike is not like this AT ALL. He is super professional, has great ideas, great energy, and all around a great time. Our guests were SOOO sad the wedding ended and literally everyone was on the dance floor...even people who NEVER dance. He even did an encore for us and our wedding went crazy when he started to play again. My Fiancé was nervous we had never heard him but we both couldn't believe how amazing the music was. We had people already asking us who he was and how to hire him just from our wedding. You will NOT BE DISAPOINTED hiring mike

AMAZING! That is the best word to describe working with Mike to make our wedding reception so special. Mike was flexible, reliable, honest and just plain fun. My husband throughly enjoyed talking to him about music for hours over the phone and setting up the perfect party to celebrate our marriage. Mike played the music that we wanted and incorporated a few other songs that made the day just perfect for all ages young and old.
Besides the music that he played he was kind to everyone- family, friends and wedding party members. He explained everything to our wedding party that would be expected for entrances and even worked out a plan to have my husband sing a song to me during the reception! We were blown away by how kind, generous and fun Mike was. We would recommend him over and over for anyone who is looking for a DJ
