2 paul retherford"Do not look any further. Mike is a complete professional. We had a very unique situation. We had our wedding on Mackinac Island and only looked for vendors that were on the Island. We actually booked with a different DJ, who ended up having to cancel the day before the wedding! You can not imagine how stressful it was trying to get everything figured out. Luckily the DJ who had to cancel referred Mike. He came in and e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g ran absolutely perfectly. Mind you, he booked this wedding the DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING. He controlled the entire service, cocktail hour, speeches etc,. and the entire reception. 

Was honestly the best experience we could have every imagined and Mike made it happen!"

"Michael was an excellent DJ and easy to work with in the planning stages as well! We had given him a playlist to start from, but he was very attentive to what people were enjoying and did a wonderful job of improvising as well. Several of our friends and family members commented specifically on how great the DJ was at our reception! We highly recommend him."

"Michael was fantastic, everybody loved the music. We only booked Michael till 9 p.m. but decided to extend the reception another hour because our guests were having so much fun. The party continued and the music never stopped."

ginterrossWe cannot thank you enough for your services! Something we keep saying is that we didn't even need to request songs because everything you played, we loved. We wanted you to be our DJ because when I met you at the wedding show and you were MCing, I thought you were so well spoken and fun. Boy, did we choose right! We have heard countless complements from our guests about how fun our DJ was. At some weddings, songs play too long, people leave the dance floor, etc. but that NEVER happened with you. We are overwhelmed with how incredible you made our reception. THANK YOU!"

"Our guest had a fabulous time at our wedding at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island amplified by the entertainment provided Mike Williford from Northern Entertainment Consultants. He met with us before the event to understand our desires for the venue and musical taste. The music sounded fantastic even with the difficulty of an outdoor venue. Michael teamed with the matron and master of ceremony to keep the timing of events throughout the reception on schedule. He worked to our play-list and accommodated requests from our guests spanning decades of musical genres. We and our guest danced like fools until the closing time of the venue.

The highlight of evening, for us and our guest, was the Groom-Daughter dance musically arranged by Michael and our five daughters. It is an example of how Northern Entertainment Consultants care about their clients and ensure a spectacular event."

"We had the absolute best experience with Mike. He was punctual, fun and helpful. I made a playlist of some songs that I wanted played but most of the night, he was able to figure out the crowd and he played a great variety of music that kept most of our guests on the floor all night long. I wouldn't have had any other DJ play our wedding. If you are planning on getting married or having an event that you need music for in Northern Michigan, I would recommend Mike - hands down! He's reasonably priced and he will do whatever he can to help make your day special."

“If you have ever been to a wedding you know that a bad DJ can ruin your special day. From day one we had heard great things about Michael from our friends. Michael knocked it out of the PARK! He catered to all of our requests and most importantly the dance floor was never empty all night long. He took our vision of a perfect wedding reception and turned it into a reality. If you are planning an event or wedding don't waste your time looking for another DJ in the St. Ignace/ Mackinac Island/ Straits area, book Michael as soon as you can.”

"I'm glad that I was referred to Mike Williford through family. He made our wedding day wonderful by being really easy to work with and the price was awesome! The event planning paperwork we filled out was very professional concerning times of dances, songs to be played and not played, people who could request and not request. Mike made our day wonderful and not stressful at all. He handled all the non-planned things that happen quick and professionally! It's nice to have an experienced DJ! Thanks Mike. You were awesome."

"Michael was the perfect choice for our Disc Jockey at our wedding. He was very professional, and super friendly. My husband and i, as well as our guests, really enjoyed the music that was played. We hardly stopped dancing once we started! I appreciated that Michael played all the songs i had requested, and also refrained from playing certain songs that i asked him not to. It was a wonderful evening with great music!"

Bickley/Phillips, Mission Point Resort, Mackinac Island, Michigan
"We met Michael and Aimee at a cake tasting, nearly a year before our 
wedding, and knew immediately that Northern Entertainment Consultants 
was the perfect fit. Both Michael and Aimee are professional, respectful, 
and showed a genuine interest in making our wedding day memorable and 
fun. Michael and Aimee diligently kept in contact with us throughout the 
months after the cake tasting and even obtained specific songs for our 
ceremony, per our requests. It was a great relief knowing that we had 
people we could trust and rely on while having a destination wedding on 
Mackinac Island. At our reception, Michael did a spectacular job at 
keeping the music flowing and enticing our guests to dance. In the true 
sense of a DJ, he kept the music flowing from one song to another, never 
a dull moment or silent gap. Michael is a true professional who enjoys 
his craft. Thank you for making our wedding day memorable and fun."

"There was a certain "feel" that I wanted guests to have at our wedding, and Michael was able to establish that feeling through the music he played. I described the type of music I wanted, and Michael not only played my specific requests, but suggested other similar artists and songs. I believe Michael is very versatile in his taste, and understands how to make music tell the story of your event. A+!! Highly recommend for any wedding or event."

Rios Currier Reception/Mission Point Resort, Mackinac Island, Michigan"Mike Williford served as the DJ/Entertainment Coordinator for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception this past August 2013 at Mackinac Island, Michigan. Our experience working with Mike was fantastic! Mike’s approach to his work and the results that a client can expect to receive are best described as: flexible, detail-oriented, extremely accountable & responsive, a strong knowledge of a wide range of music, and extremely personable with an astute feel for gauging a crowd. 
Although my wife and I held our wedding in Michigan we did most, if not all, of our planning from out of state. Given these challenges. Mike’s ability to stay in constant communication with us, while remaining patient and flexible to our changing needs, speaks volumes to the consummate professional that he is. To that end, I would strong endorse Mike to anyone that is considering his services for their wedding or other large-scale social event. You’ll find that much like my wife and I, you’ll come away extremely pleased and feel that you have gained a friend in the process."

He also worked great with our venue, the Island House Hotel, making him a practically stress-free vendor. My husband and I highly recommend him."

Island House(Mackinac Island, Michigan)Island House(Mackinac Island, Michigan)"Michael was the DJ at our wedding on Mackinac Island in September '12. He was one of the few that responded in a timely manner and always returned phone calls and emails promptly. He made a special appointment to meet us on the island to discuss the details a few months before our wedding. The day of the wedding he was awesome. He has a great voice for announcing and we were very pleased with his services. We only had a two hour window for dancing but during the two hours, the majority of our guests were on the floor dancing. He played music to get them dancing and kept them dancing the entire time. I would highly recommend him and I thank you Michael for exceeding our expectations."

"Michael Williford, with Northern Entertainment Consultants is by far the BEST DJ around. Michael was the DJ at our recent wedding reception. He ROCKED it. The music was everything we wanted and more. Michael's creative, professional abilities created a wonderful atmosphere for our guests. They were dancing from beginning to end. Two weeks post wedding, and we are STILL getting compliments about the DJ. Northern Entertainment Consultants will offer affordable, but more importantly, excellent entertainment. We definitely recommend them to anybody looking for a great DJ!"
