Craig Michaels was wonderful!  He did my wedding on May 30th, 2009. The biggest things I was concerned about, he passed with flying colors. Pronouncing our last names right, keeping the party going and being interactive.  Craig did a fabulous job doing all those things and more. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else wanting a interactive DJ for a special event!!!

RE:  Mark G., Solo Guitarist - Kate Longworth & Brian Eagan Wedding - 4/4/2009

 I have been waiting 8 days and counting to properly THANK YOU, Mark---and I don't believe this email even does justice!

You were AMAZING! and your beautiful music and personal touch -- made our wedding day truly MAGICAL!  I only regret that that day was so busy (in a good way) that I did not properly get to thank you in person.  The music for the ceremony was Perfect---it exceeded my expectations and truly fulfilled the vision/dream I had in my mind.  I loved the song the wedding party walked down to, and you made the moment so memorable to my Dad and I with your wonderful song.  And, WOW!--- you blew "Let my love open the door" out of the water!  You were BETTER than the original song that I first fell in love with -- and, then, for you to play that again when we walked into the cocktail hour--it was just so attentive, kind and magical on your part---and made our day!!!!

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING and I wish you the best in everything!  You brightened our day and we and our guests and our parents were Very Entertained and pleased with your presence and performance!  THANKS & Best of LUCK in ALL - 

Katie and Brian Eagan

RE:  Pacific Rift Motor Storm Event, 02/28/09 

 

Hi, Dee Dee and Craig:

The event was great and I really must say a HUGE thank you for all your efforts.  You were all great. The promo girls were fabulous (very laid back and nice) and Tyler and his band were AMAZING!  A huge hit.  I could not have wished for a better outcome.  They were perfect for us and the fact that all their mates came along really made the event!

 

I have lots of photos and am awaiting the video (this will take a few weeks) so as soon as I have it, I will let you know and send on a copy.  If you have an ftp site, let me know and I will upload the photos now.

 

Thanks again for coming along and helping make the event the success it was.  Please pass on our thanks to Tyler and and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone doing an event in the LA area!

 

We hope to be back next year and will be giving you a call.

 

Best wishes,

Rod was excellent. he was in tune to our needs and provided us with a list of music above and beyond what we asked for.

His professionalism was above reproach and I would recommend Musical Affair and Rod to anyone using a DJ for their wedding.

Thanks, Rod!

Dee Dee,

Thank you for all the time and attention you put into helping me. You were a pleasure to work with.  The event was complete with your help and attention to detail.  I was so pleased you were there and could see that everyone was dazzled and enjoyed "Marilyn's" performance immensely.  She was perfect and in character every second.  High marks and rave reviews! Thank you to you both.

I wish I had realized you were going to be there ... I did see on your last email signed, "see you soon", but it didn't compute!  I would have greeted you much earlier on.  I will forward some of the photos on to you when I get to them.  'Till we meet again, it was truly, simply .... The best! 

Thanks and happy O-eight to you and yours,

Dear Craig:

 

I wanted to extend a very special "Thank You" for helping with the "Pirates of the Coachella Valley" annual Fall ‘FunRaiser’.  The night would not have been as big a success as it was without your help.   I cannot remember a time when we actually had to wait until the party was over to clean up!  I heard many comments on how much our guests enjoyed the music.

 

Thank you so much for your willingness to help us out in our time of need.  We appreciate all your help for our event; it would not have been as successful without you.

 

The November issue of the East Valley Business will hve a fun story and pictures commemorating the event, make sure to watch for your copy!

 

Sincerely,

Just wanted to let you know how much fun everyone had at Dana's Bat Mitzvah! Craig and the other DJ did an amazing job...everyone was up and dancing the entire evening! To quote the Bat Mitzvah girl, "this was the greatest party ever!" The mix of music was perfect, and the games were fun.

 

You guys really know how to get the party started! The face painter did amazing work, as well.  Our photos just came back, and it just confirms how much fun everyone had that night!  I am sure you'll be getting calls from our friends in the future.

Craig, Thank you for the great job you did at my husband's 50th birthday party at Rancho La Quinta.   The music was great and the Game Show Mania was the hit of the party.  Very entertaining!  

 

Our friends are still talking about what a great time they had.  I have already recommended you to my inquiring friends.  Great job!

Good morning, Dee Dee,

 

I am back in Washington, and wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the presentation (by your comedian Rex M.) on March 19th and appreciate your working with us on such a short notice.

 

We will keep you in mind if and when we return to Southern California again.

 

Thank you,

Hi Dee Dee I just wanted to let you know that the music for my function (The Rob R. Irish Trio) was perfect!  They were very good and it was just the perfect music for the setting that we had.  Everyone really enjoyed it. 

 

Thanks again,

To Dee Dee of Musical Affair,

 

I just want to thank you for the excellent job on both functions in which you provided entertainment.  Rex was just perfect for our dinner party.  He was very obliging to our requests and the guests enjoyed him very much.  We also enjoyed the strolling comedic magician at our office gathering. 

 

Please feel free to give our name as a reference in either situation.  Your company allowed us to provide our guests with something special.

 

Thank you again,

Dee Dee:

 

I got your message on my cell phone &, since I was on the computer, I thought I would just respond with an email message. Chase did a great job for us. Kids can be a pain & not do what you want them to, but overall towards the end they got up & started dancing & putting more into it. 

 

Alix said she had a great time & several people that she spoke with at school yesterday said that they did, too--I guess that is all we can ask for.

 

Thanks again for everything--especially for both you & Craig stopping by. We will definitely call you guys if we need any other entertainment.

Hi, Craig and Dee Dee:

 

Thank you for the beautiful gift basket.  I really appreciate it.

 

I would like to send my accolades to Michael Farber on Halloween. He did a great job. The members loved the music he played.  As a matter of fact, we will need a DJ on March 10 for a College Alma Mater party to play 50's, 60's and 70's music and I would love to request him if he is still with you.

 

Happy Holidays,

Dear Craig & Dee Dee Michaels:

 

On behalf of the Boomers and Friends Board I want to thank you for the fantastic entertainment provided by you and the professional dancers.

We have received a lot of kudos from various members telling the Board of a fun night. They loved the presentation of the music, the best ever so far, your entertaining style to the members, and last, but not least, the professional dancers added a definite spark to the evening.

 

Again, thank you so much for compiling the songs requested, as it was great hearing some really old Rock N Roll.

 

We look forward to seeing you in the Spring at our "Surf's Up--Spring Dance", Saturday, April 21, 2007, with Beach Boy Music and lots of surfing music, plus great oldies. Again, if possible, we would love to have the 2 special dancers that you had for us on Friday night. Absolutely fantastic!

 

Sincerely,

Dee Dee,

 

Many thanks to both you and Craig for the outstanding night we had at LaQuinta last Sunday. The Rat Pack was the hit of the meeting and we could not have been more pleased with all the arrangements you provided.

 

I am sure that you will be getting some referrals from our group, and I will look forward to working with you again next year.

 

Thank you so much for making me look good,

Best Regards,

Dear Dee Dee:

 

Thank you for the great work you did on putting together the caterer, DJ and entertainment for our social event at the Palm Springs Air Museum. From beginning to end you were with me every step of the way and never let a detail fall through the cracks. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you, Russ and Kelly.

 

I would also like to thank you for arranging the DJ and western caller for our Chair's reception. Everyone was enthusiastic and had a wonderful time. Craig did a great job of reading the crowd and mixing up the music to keep things going 'til the end.

 

Thank you for partnering with us to make our events a success.

Hello,

 

I just wanted to thank you and Jeff for assisting us with our entertainment last weekend. We were very happy with everything, and felt that Jeff did a very good job keeping every one up and dancing. I also appreciated all the communication we had before the wedding.

 

We would definitely recommend your services to anyone interested.

 

Thanks again.

Dear Dee Dee Michaels:

 

Rose and I wanted to thank you for your excellent work on April 15, 2006, for our daughter's wedding.   Everyone who attended had a great time, thanks to you and Craig. 

 

We would highly recommend your company for any function that needs your services.

 

Warmest regards,

Dear Craig,

 

Now that the craziness of the wedding is over, I wanted to send a note to thank you for the wonderful job you did at Amber and Jeremy's wedding on April 8th, 2006.

The wedding set up was perfect and everyone could hear their vows and the music. Thanks for getting Mike hooked up on your sound system for the acoustic wedding march.

 

The reception was great. The music you played kept the party going and everyone dancing until they couldn't dance anymore. Amber was thrilled with the music you chose. We always heard that the music can make or break a reception. Having you in charge made it a party that will be remembered for a long time.

 

I can't thank you enough for making her day so special and stress free.

 

Sincerely,

Julianne Spriggs


Dear Dee Dee:

 

Thank you so much for providing such great entertainment (Hawaiian Dancers) for Chuck's 50th! Everyone had a wonderful time and the girls were awesome.

 

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company in the future.

 

Thanks, again,

Thank you for your assistance in providing entertainment by the steel drum trio for the California Grape & Fruit Tree League's luau at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort on March 27th. The music was very much enjoyed by the guests and added to the tropical ambiance of the event.

 

Again, thank you.

Dear Craig:

We never got a chance to thank you for the wonderful job you did at our daughter's wedding. We appreciate all that you set up for us for the Wedding ceremony with our Soloists & the Quartet. We know we didn't give you alot of notice...so it's especially appreciated. Thanks for making all of that possible. They all did a wonderful job.

 

We loved what you did at the dinner reception. You played great music that kept the party going...& a great variety. Even my 80+ yr. old parents enjoyed the music....& they are usually so senitive to any loud music that they normally leave early. You kept everything on track without too much unnecessary talking. You just couldn't have done a better job. Thank you so much!

 

Please pass our 'thank you' on to the Quartet also. You all made such a difference in making our daughter & son in law's wedding such a special memory for all of us.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ken & Judy Scurlock


Hi, Craig:

 

I’m sorry we didn’t get more of a chance to visit on Thursday night, but it always gets a bit hectic at those things. Al and Gary were a Huge Hit and I felt were just right for the venue around the pool. It was interesting that before the evening was over – people were up and dancing. They were great. Please convey our appreciation to them for their musical talent and their professionalism.

 

We will be returning to Palm Springs next year (same weekend) for Outlook 2007, and our needs may be very similar. Having been at the reception, you might be considering whether other talent may be appropriate or maybe even Al and Gary again. At any rate, as that time draws nearer, we will no doubt be in touch.

 

Again, thanks for all your help and for the great entertainment!

Dear Dee Dee and Craig: 


I wanted to take a minute to say Thank You and let you both know how much I appreciate all you did to make Origen’s California Gold Rush such an outstanding event. Your attention to detail from the proposal stage to the actual presentation of our event was beyond my expectations. The décor, entertainment, and energy level of the party were exactly what I hoped they would be and the little additions and extra touches that you suggested made everything perfect. I also appreciate you working with our budget and always being straight-forward regarding cost.

 

Our guests enjoyed themselves immensely as evidenced by the dancing and energetic participation in our casino and auction. I have never seen people actually dance at an industry event, and as you know, there were several times throughout the night when the dance floor was packed. Craig – you are an excellent DJ and auctioneer, and you made our event fun and successful.

It has been three weeks since the event and we are still receiving compliments and phone calls from people saying how much they enjoyed themselves. I have already had the opportunity to recommend your company several times and I will continue to do so as the opportunity arises. If we are ever in the area again, I will not hesitate to book you early so I can be assured of putting on another top shelf event.

 

All my best,

Dearest Craig & Dee Dee,

 

May I please say how very wonderful you have been, and how very much the girls (and all the guests) enjoyed the wedding and your "perfect" music and timing??!!

You have been absolutely the BEST, and I so appreciate all the "extra" effort you have put into making the most memorable day for my daughter and her wedding party? I thank you for your kindness, professionalism and generosity on our behalf!  From the very beginning, we wanted Craig to be our DJ, although finances limited us to one of your "lesser" DJ's.

Can you imagine our delight and surprsie, when Craig responded that "he" would be our DJ? Sally and I were sooooo thrilled!!

 

Thank you for your part in making it a "perfect" evening!! Sally and I will definitely be your most loyal supporters and we will recommend you to any and all we know, for ANY OCCASION!! We truly look forward to working with you all again!!

 

Craig, though we live in a resort community and have come to "expect" great service, I must say, your kindness and consideration have been "above and beyond" the services I have received in the desert to date!! I would be happy to submit a letter of commendation for your web site or any other contacts you may have!!

 

Thank you for making Sally & Ben's wedding most memorable!  Please, rest assured that we will give no other recommendation than Musical Affair Entertainment to all of our acquaintances!!

 

Hope to see you soon!

 

Norma Maine


Dee Dee,

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The music for my wedding was wonderful! I must admit I did not hear much of the Rob Reynolds Duo, but everyone tells me they were great. I can't say enough about our DJ, Jeff. He was perfect. He kept the tempo of the party going, he worked independently but also coordinated with me, and he handled the crowd input with finesse. I got lots of compliments from my guests on what a good job he did. Very impressive.

 

Thanks for all you help. Our wedding was fantastic!

 

Madelon Pomeroy


Dear Craig:

 

Thank you for all of your assistance with our Bayer Inc./Venture Planning. We are so fortunate to have worked with you! It was apparent the music you chose made them more than happy--they had a ball!  We appreciate the time and effort you took to make sure our client and guests leave Palm Springs with a wonderful experience.

 

We look forward to the many more events in the future!

 

Sincerely,

Mary Kim O'Brien, Nancy Shaffer, & Julie DeMartini


Dear Mr. Michaels:

 

You are an extraordinary friend to the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center. Our holiday teen parties would not be the same -- not as enjoyable, exciting or as much fun without your personal touch and wonderful talent.  

 

I know how much our staff enjoys working with you. The attention and friendship you give to the teens is very special and so important in helping them feel important.  I hear the hula-hoop contest and hokey pokey dances were quite popular!

 

With warm wishes for a happy 2003,

 

Barbara Sinatra,
Founder & Chairman


Dear Dee Dee & Craig:

 

Your company has a great talent in Jeff Gardner!  He did a terrific job at our 50th anniversary party. We are so glad we chose your company. Jeff made our party special.

Sincerely,

 

Paul & Jo Ann Miller
