DJ and MC Services DJ MIKE NYC

I hired DJ, MC, and Lighting Services for my mother’s 60th birthday party. I provided a two list of songs to DJ MIKE for the party (list include, Chutney, soca, calypso, reggae, Reggaeton, and Hip Hop). At the time we paid him in full. He was told what type of music we wanted at the party. He agreed to our request. We provided a program along with music list of songs. I spend three weeks researching songs and name of artist for this event, which was provided to him one month in advance. As an MC he was not on cue, did not have the guests ready for the entrance. Instead, my mother surprised the guests. DJ/MC was the same person, he was not able to multitask and do the job his company was hired to do. He Kept asking me during the event is your mother going to dance with her sons? I told him no during the initial face to face meeting and at the event “No”. Yet he kept asking. He changed my program without my consent. He also solicited his services to all my guests without my consent. He placed his business cards on all the tables except my ours. He went over time, started the speech late, dinner late. My guests started to eat after 9:30 pm. The food was out getting cold and some of the food spoiled. There were children there that ate that late. DJ Mike is an old Guyanese man, not in tune with his customers. He played music he wanted, NOT the music on my lists. This DJ is an embarrassment to other hardworking young DJ. He did not scratch, engage the guests, or play the songs requested. I lost $ 950 on this event. HE did not reimburse me or offer an apology. He instead stated that he knew what the guests wanted and it was not the four Hip Hop songs we requested. We requested the clean version of these Hip Hop Songs He does not know how to handle or dealt with people from diverse background or ethnicity. He was upset that we asked to play Hip Hop at a 60th party. He reported that he’d never played HIP HOP at a 60th Birthday Party. He was upset that our 4 year old son dance for his grandmother to the clean version of Trinidad James “gold everything”. We hired him to play the type of music our guests enjoyed and wanted to hear. This event was for my mother and instead of everyone having a good time, this DJ / MC did what he wanted. It was not his party! I hope this help anyone looking to hire him. Roy and Debbie.
