  • Creating unique experiences for couples in love with music

    A wedding reception is the capstone to one of the most important days of your life -- but it's also a party, and music is what holds that party together. It's the lifeblood, and if the music doesn't deliver, people tend to leave after they'd had their cake. With everything on your plate, let us handle this part! Mr. Music is northern Michigan's only boutique disc jockey service, creating unique experiences for couples in love with music.

    We create customized receptions -- receptions that reflect the true personality of you and your guests -- for brides and grooms throughout the entire Grand Traverse region. Professional, creative, and never over-the-top -- we deliver exactly the event you're looking for with none of the DJ cliche. Relax, have fun and leave the rest to us!

    Every wedding reception is different based on the vision of the couple and the make-up of the guests. Each party has its own vibe and feel, and Mr. Music DJs are trained to respond to the individual style of your reception.

    Whether you're planning a wedding, a dance or a company event, relax and leave the party to us!

  • Philosophy


    We'd both arrived at a stage in life where we were attending a lot of weddings, and we'd run down our checklist afterward, comparing notes about what worked and what didn't. Typically--barring any tragedies like running out of wine or food poisoning--the make or break element of the evening was almost always the music. So many DJs we saw were on auto-pilot. It was clear they came into the situation with a set "wedding playlist" and--beyond that narrow scope--they weren't sure what to do. They might as well have plugged in an iPod and walked away.

    The DJs that are the best are the ones who know what the bride and groom, and their guests, want. They understand their tastes and style, and can then react to the party--as it's happening--within those parameters. They're flexible and creative on their feet. They know music and they know how to use it--moment by moment, song by song--to keep a party going.

    This why we DJ. We are committed to providing a personalized, problem-free celebration for couples in love with music.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What do you wear?

    We use the rule: "Dress as well as the guests." Expect us to arrive dressed appropriately for a wedding or a formal dance. If you're having a theme event, be sure to let us know how you'd like us to dress so that we can match your guests' attire.

    Can we pick the music for our event?

    Absolutely! We certainly welcome any requests you may have. However, you have more important things to do than come up with a song-by-song play list for your entire reception--that's our job!

    Your DJ will be able to gauge how the event is going and what kinds of songs your guests are responding to the best, then tailor the play list accordingly in real-time. It can be difficult to know ahead of time how some of your favorite songs will be received by the many different groups and tastes attending your reception, so it's best to stay flexible and have a lot of options.

    Remember, most weddings include at least three generations of guests. We want to have a little something for everyone. While there are many songs you may like listening to while on a road trip or hanging out with friends, try to imagine how those songs will translate to the dance floor. Often times those songs are better suited for cocktail/dinner music.

    We encourage you to provide us with a list of roughly a dozen Must-Play songs that you absolutely cannot live without at your reception. We will use this list as a guide to help build you the perfect party. We also ask that you share any Do-Not-Play songs, artists, or genres of music that will not work on your special night.

    What kind of equipment do you have?

    Our commercial grade systems provide crisp, professional sound and versatile lighting that can be adjusted to meet the demands of virtually any venue. Please try to leave a 12' by 6' deep space for us to work in.

    Can you provide sound for my ceremony?

    Yes. We have a smaller, mobile unit perfectly suited for outdoor and non-traditional ceremony locations without their own sound systems. We can provide microphones for officiants and readers, as well as sound equipment for a limited number of live musicians. To discuss your particular ceremony needs, please call or email us.

    It's really nice to finally speak with someone who takes care to make each customer feel like they're special and important. Ultimately, your attitude and enthusiasm is what sold us last night. Last night when I got home, I told my Fiancee, "I decided on our DJ, hands down because she has been the nicest Vendor we've spoken to so far." It's nice to know that I have someone like you who is willing to help us, and WILL always answer her phone. For that, we truly are grateful.

    -Kristin & Jeremiah, Bride & Groom

    It was a wonderful wedding, thanks! The DJ was good and everyone danced and seemed to be enjoying themselves. I will keep putting your name out there though because of the exemplary service that we received at our daughter's wedding.

    -Trish Marek, Mother-of-the-Bride
    Traverse Region Conservation Club

    We knew going into our wedding that music would be the key component of our celebration. We are definitely picky customers, but an early meeting with Jordan to discuss our tastes and the vibes we were hoping for put us instantly at ease. On the day, all of our guests loved him and we received tons of compliment about how perfect and "us" the music was throughout the night. Jordan did a fabulous job of tailoring the music to fit our personalities and played a major role in making our wedding reception exactly what we wanted. Jordan reacted to the crowd and did an amazing job of reading them, playing the perfect songs at all the right times.
