“I had started planning my daughter’s wedding literally two years ago. I felt that I had covered all my bases feeling confident with the choices I had made for the catering, photography, and music. As the wedding approached, I had contacted all of my contracted assistance only to find out that my disc jockey had pretty much fallen off the face of the earth. He had moved from his residence, disconnected his personal and company phone and left his office. Of course , I was in a panic and sat up most of the evening, reaching out to random disc jockeys who may be able to step in and save my daughter’s big day.
To my surprise, one of the disc jockeys who reached out to me almost immediately with a strong sense of professionalism and calmness was Mike Obara. He was obviously booked up with many events but oddly enough had my daughter’s date available. He was incredibly accommodating and met me at the venue the following day. He didn’t take advantage of me, knowing I was in desperate need of good music in five weeks, instead he worked very effectively, offering great advise and explaining how his equipment would work best with the high garden ceilings of the venue, Tower Hill Botanic Garden. He was professional and personable. He put me and my husband at ease right away. He was only to happy to help. For the next five weeks, we had met to go over song choice and bounce ideas off one another. He had a very professional studio office and he assured me that he would respond to any questions I had a long the way. He certainly did that. I reached out many times with questions and song lists, Mike responded every time with very quickly with guidance.
The big day came and Mike was of course, his professional self all set up , knowing exactly how to place his equipment and speakers giving the reception a perfect sound effect, which isn’t easy to do in a huge glass garden house. It was absolutely perfect! He presented himself with such professionalism and charm. He was very approachable for anyone to speak with him throughout the evening. Our guests were very impressed and never left the dance floor! We were in very good hands. I took special notice of the songs he played while we were eating, so perfect and all that we had gone over. Not to loud through dinner, which was fabulous as people were chatting and getting to know each other.
I am actually thrilled that my original disc jockey disappeared because Mike made the difference for us on our special day! I will highly recommend him to all!”
