With Fall now here, I am always reminded of Halloween and the scary costumes that people now gravitate to. But in the world of weddings, there are few things scarier to a bride than a loud-mouthed, cheesy DJ masquerading as a professional Master Of Ceremony. I received a call recently that illustrated this fact very […]
Wedding & Special Event Band – The Metroplexers
Non-stop Party Rock! That is the motto of DFW party band, The Metroplexers. The Metroplexers are having a great year playing weddings, special events, and even special night club showcases. Most professional party bands in the DFW area are too expensive for a lot of budgets or they are simply too big. Did you know […]
Health & Fitness Clubs need DJs too!
A disc jockey can do a lot of things at different events. Provide sound, wireless microphones, even video projectors. Of course music is essential, but it is not always the primary reason to hire a DJ. A lot of work I do in the Dallas / Fort Worth area has to do with health and […]
Summer Events, Pool Parties and “Dive-In” Movies. The right DJ makes a difference.
Summertime in Dallas and Fort Worth is so fun! Apartment complexes, hotels, community event centers, assisted living facilities, HOAs and more are all looking for fun things to do to make this the best summer yet.

If you read anything about me on this website, you hopefully will gather that I love being a part of people’s special moments. Generally, I am a happy person with very few pet peeves or negative things to say about other people or businesses. But this past month I have been witness to an unnerving […]
How do I know what Brides & Grooms want?… I ask!
Have you ever texted somebody a note and they got the wrong idea about what you meant? I love texting, but it can be problematic if the conversations get too deep. I also love shopping online. It allows me to do so much that was not possible just a few years ago. But in the entertainment […]
I won an award for excellence in weddings in the DFW area!
I don’t often toot my own horn, but when I receive a nice bit of recognition from a respected industry resource, it is nice to let everybody know about it. Here is what the people at Wedding Wire have to say about me: WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding Marketplace, is excited to announce Mike Mahnich […]
With weddings, excellence has to be planned in advance.
I recently saw a bumper sticker on the back of a construction vehicle that said “Excellence has to be planned in advance”. I like that. As a full-time, professional wedding DJ & MC, I often hear from people in other professions about how great it must be to have my weeks off and just work […]
