It is hard to put into words how much I appreciate DJ Mike Nelson!! He was not only a DJ at my wedding, he was an entertainer! I cannot tell you how many guests of my wedding told me how much they loved Mike. Before the wedding he was in contact with the Winery I had my wedding at, and the day of he arrived promptly and ready for business! Mike and the Winery staff worked awesome together, and he asked for my opinion when choosing music for the wedding. He absolutely kept the reception going smoothly and without a hitch. He is so outgoing and really helped everyone relax and have a good time dancing by initiating awesome games, playing genres of music for all generations, and just speaking/directing the events of the night.
We had absolutely no worries during our wedding, some may say it was luck. But I think it was the awesome and professional people surrounding us, DJ Mike Nelson was definitely one of them!! - Rebecca Larson
From our first conversation with Mike , his responsiveness, attention to detail, and professionalism were clear, as were his love of music and his DJ gear. Throughout our planning, he promptly answered questions, clearly communicated what he needed from us, and was simply a really nice guy. On our wedding day, he was prepared, organized, and accommodating, and everything went perfectly. Mike seamlessly facilitated transitions between to the ceremony, cocktail, dinner, and dancing locations as well as the toasts. Our dance floor was alive, and several of our guests commented how great the music was. We cannot thank Mike enough! We would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a DJ! - Kati Barrett
DJ MIKE NELSON is nothing short of AMAZING!!! From booking him to talking over our music likes and dislikes to his amazing personality and ability to converse with the crowd and keep our music flowing perfectly from one song to the next!! Our dance floor was not empty once!!! And that's hard to do, I have never been to a wedding, before witnessing his awesome ability to entertain, where the dance floor was ALWAYS full! Simply the BEST!! - Jaime Brown
I would absolutely recommend DJ Mike Nelson. The dance floor was packed all night. He spun songs (unlike most "playlist wedding DJs") and was, honestly, a big reason our wedding night went so smoothly.
Here are some highlights from Mike's performance:
1. Custom mixed (two) songs for Father/Bride dance
2. Played a vinyl record (by request) for Bride/Groom first dance
3. Recorded some amazing video with a handheld camera and sent it to us like 2 days after the wedding
4. Lighting and sound was amazing throughout -- we asked to turn down the volume during dinner and it was no problem!
5. Mike is not a hired, plain wedding DJ. He is a DJ. If you go to the "other guys" you won't get someone like Mike.
1. Knowledgeable and Current: Mike reads the crowd, knows what to play at any given moment, from the Cars to Cardi B
2. Enthusiastic: Mike is very excited about his work and it shows
3. Fun: Our guests had the time of their lives! (and Mike said he did too!!)
We hired DJ Mike Nelson on a recommendation from our photographer (who'd worked with him before) and it was the best decision! Not only did Mike keep the dance floor busy the whole evening, he also played an emcee of sorts, keeping things flowing through various speeches and other wedding night mileposts. He also suggested the idea for this short, funny "shoe game" that ended up being a blast. My parents complained he didn't play all their requests, but that was probably for the best, to be quite honest ;)
