Michael O’Neill has been DJ’ing since high school in Framingham, MA. Established MCO Productions in 2000, which offers DJ's and pub trivia throughout greater Boston and Portsmouth. Author of The Best Bar Trivia Book Ever: All You Need For Pub Quiz Domination (2014) http://www.amazon.com/The-Best-Trivia-Book-Ever/dp/1440579474
Worked as a DJ and sound board controller for the Boston Bruins and Celtics for a decade, while the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011.
Michael was based in Boston (Brighton) until relocating to the Portland, ME area in 2021. DJ'ing weddings in a different market brings much excitement, but frequently plays in Boston still.
Your wedding is a very special day for you, your family and friends. It’s the one day that everything should happen the way you want it to. I am the DJ who will deliver your vision. With over 20 years of experience entertaining different types of crowds, I know exactly what to play for a mixed age group who gets together for a celebration. My specialty is playing what the bride and groom prefer, while staying away from “cheesy” wedding songs and getting everyone dancing. Generally, I only talk on the microphone for introductions and brief announcements, and let the music do the work. That’s my style, low-key but very effective. You tell me what you want, I will give you that.
Whether you envision a traditional wedding or something out of the ordinary, DJ Michael will provide.
Your expectations will be surpassed with a little preparation.
Preparation… You will need to select your key songs (first dance, cake cutting, etc.).
I am happy to provide suggestions at anytime. You should also make a list of songs, artists, or genres of music that you enjoy. This list is not necessary, but it will insure that I play the right mix for you. The form is located in the wedding planner. Once you’ve completed the planner, we will discuss your music selections. Regarding my music collection, I have everything. You may choose whatever songs you like and I will play your selections at the most appropriate time. Most people prefer not to hear ‘cheesy’ music. That’s not a problem. I will create cd’s with your key songs and other requests. They are yours to keep when we’re done, bring them on your honeymoon!
Next, we will go over the order of events, name pronunciations, etc. Once we’ve had this last meeting/conversation, you will have nothing to worry about regarding entertainment. Being prepared makes for a smooth, flawless reception.
On the big day, Michael will arrive early to set-up and coordinate with the facility staff and other vendors. We use top of the line gear that sounds brilliant, but is not obtrusive. We also bring a backup set of equipment that we would use for the ceremony music or cocktail hour, if in a different location. We usually wear dark suits, but will wear tuxedos upon request. We also provide a cordless mic for the toasts that can be made anywhere in the room. The announcements and introductions are rehearsed, tasteful and timely.
The dance portion of the reception is the easiest part. We play a mix of songs that inspire everyone to dance. Songs that people know and love are seemlessy blended together, while adhering to your play/no play lists. Generally, I stay away from the overplayed wedding songs, but again, I will play whatever you want. I am looking to play your requests while maintaining a fun and energetic dance floor. It is not necessary to encourage line dances and games when the right mix of music keeps everyone dancing.
Please contact me about your wedding date. If I am available, I will mail or email you a contract. A deposit of $500 holds the date. We will work out the details in the coming months.
Any questions will be quickly responded to by email, phone call or text at 617.901.7701.
We now offer uplighting, which can transform a room or tent to the color(s) of your choosing: 10 LED fixtures with 8 hour battery life controlled by a remote.
