“I get to help the Brides and Grooms throw the party that THEY want, and make it fun for everyone.”
How did Mike start working at Buckeye Entertainment?
Mike has been involved with music in one way or another since the age of 7 when his parents took him to a Pink Floyd concert. After years of playing the drums in his own band, Mike’s attentions turned towards the blossoming electronic music scene of the 2000’s. There he saw, time and again, the ability of a good DJ to not just be the background to someone’s good time, but to actually create it; to feel it out, react to it, and keep it going for hours at a time. It was inspiring to him. So he bought his own set of decks and began honing his skills behind the headphones – mixing songs, creating playlists. From there he went on to DJ at house parties and special events just for fun, even having a chance to DJ his own brother’s wedding. From the moment he faded out of a love song and into “The Time Warp” with the whole crowd rushing to the dance floor to join in the fun, he knew he was hooked. So a professional wedding DJ he became!
Now while not every wedding is going to want the same music, every wedding is going to want someone to make sure their guests are going to enjoy themselves and have a good time. Just like his old school DJ heroes, that is what Mike is best at: developing great atmosphere no matter who is in his audience. Mike knows how to mix, meld, and manipulate and maintain no matter what music he is spinning, all while working in requests from the people he is playing for. This showman has the entire package to make your night exactly what you want it to be.
But just like Reading Rainbow, you don’t have to take our word for it.
“Weddings are such an important moment for people. It’s a real transition into a new stage of life for the couple getting married and it’s very rewarding to play a vital role in the execution of the event. Weddings have a tendency to fly by with so much to do, but I find it’s the little moments throughout the night, like the formal dances, when you see everything start to sink in that always bring me the most joy. I love being a part of it”
Our man Mike has been a great addition to Buckeye Entertainment and he has become a customer favorite. Boisterous and gregarious, Mike loves working with new people and helping make their wedding party dreams into a reality. In the world outside of music and weddings, he has a lovely wife, 2 dogs who are nearly as large as he is, and a degree in psychology from The Ohio State University. In his free time you can often catch him hitting the links or picking up an x-box controller.
