MICHAEL-optimized2

Michael Bucciantini

Wedding/Event DJ

Michael is a well traveled young man, living in exotic places such as Alaska, St. Thomas, and Hawaii. He's been involved in the wedding industry for several years, from catering, to filming, and of course the most fun, DJing! Music has always been a big part of his life. He even figured out how to work an old-fashioned reel to reel player at age 5 just to listen to Simon and Garfunkel's Mrs Robinson on repeat. He has since branched out beyond Mrs. Robinson and has an appreciation for all types of music. Michael will help make your big day unforgettable!
