Mass Bay DJ Entertainment & Lighting is owned and operated by Michael Degagne. Mike has been a lifelong musician and vocalist who began learning the craft of DJing in 2010 from some of the industry’s best. He has since provided entertainment for hundreds of events, including weddings, proms, reunions, anniversaries, and birthdays, among others.
We understand that there is more to providing entertainment than simply setting up some speakers. You are not hiring just a DJ, you are getting a service. We work with you every step of the way to build the event around your tastes and we don’t try to be something we’re not. We make the announcements we need make and then we get off the microphone. It is not about us…it’s about YOU!
Our mission is to ensure the music makes your event one to remember and one that your guests will talk about long after its over.
What Our Clients Say
When we decided to have a small wedding in a small venue, we kept going back and forth about whether we needed a DJ. We weren’t sure whether our guests would want to dance… or even if we had enough space for a dance floor! The other testimonials on Mike’s website won us over and and I can truthfully say that working with Mike was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Not only did he get everyone dancing, but he read the room with incredible skill and knew just when to transition from gentle reception music into fun dance hits. All of our guests told us how much they loved him.
Mike was so friendly, communicative, and helpful throughout the wedding planning process and even switched a few things up on the wedding day when requested. He provided thoughtful recommendations for which different types of mics to use during the ceremony and worked seamlessly with our venue coordinator and officiant to help create the perfect wedding. Even before the wedding, he worked carefully with us to ensure that all of the cues would be right for a same-sex couple and altered the traditional “bride and groom” script to work for us. We cannot recommend him enough!!
Mike was the best decision we made when it came to planning our wedding! I reached out very far in advance to book him for our wedding date and he was always so sweet and answered all of my questions leading up to the date, all while reassuring me we still had plenty of time if anything changed! He blew us away with with his down to earth nature and willingness to truly work with us for the vibe we were looking for. Our friends and families were on the dance floor all night and were raving about the music! We couldn’t be more grateful to Mike, we HIGHLY recommend him and will continue to do so to all our friends and families!!
Mike was phenomenal. We hired him for our September 2018 wedding. The music was great from the cocktail hour, to dinner, and reception. Mike played a wide variety of genres for us for our young and older guests alike. His planning form is easy to follow and super helpful. I think the best part of Mike’s skill set is his personality! He is such a genuinely nice person and it comes across on the mic which he wasn’t on too much or too little. He was so efficient during the planning process and never left you hanging because every single response was very prompt which was a huge relief when you are dealing with a lot of vendors!
We loved him so much that we convinced him to have a beer with us after the wedding. 🙂 HIs prices are extremely reasonable and I would no doubt hire him again and also highly recommend him. *Upgrade and get the lighting, you won’t regret it!
Not only did Mike make the wedding planning process easier for us, but he really came through when it was time to shine! Planning during the pandemic presented its challenges, but Mike was so wonderful to work with and extremely helpful with suggestions or recommendations. From the very first beat of the first song until the wedding was over, our guests never left the dance floor. Mike played the perfect selection of music and had such a great read on the room that he knew which direction to go next. Our guests have not stopped talking about how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing. Thank you so much Mike for making our wedding so memorable!!
Mike exceeded our expectations, planning through the pandemic was tough but Mike helped us stay calm and kept the planning process smooth. Our guests never left the dance floor. Mike played music to get our guests up and dancing and he really played something for everyone! I will be recommending Mike to friends and family that are planning weddings just to experience another wedding with him as DJ!
With weddings, you never know what the expect, but that did not do this past year justice. I was one of the many who needed to postpone my wedding, multiple times. With all the stress that comes with that, Mike only brought positivity and reassurance along the way. Fast forward to our wedding day and one of the most anticipated moments was being on the dance floor with our family and friends and as Mike knows, that is exactly what happened! Mike has the talented ability to read the room and without any input from myself or husband, played exactly what everyone wanted to hear! I have received nothing but the most amazing comments from friends and family saying how great the music was, how much fun they had and how their feet are still recovering from dancing so much! Mike went above and beyond being a reliable resource for me and with out a doubt made my wedding one to remember! Thank you Mike for being you and doing what you do best. We are so grateful!
Mike at Mass Bay DJ was absolutely amazing! From the moment I reached out to him to inquire about his services, I could tell he was extremely professional and detail oriented. He was very responsive and answered all my questions very promptly. I had to postpone my wedding twice due to COVID and my original DJ could not do the first date. When I was in search for a new DJ I was a bit nervous, but as soon as I was in touch with Mike I knew I was in great hands!
Mike at Mass Bay DJ could not have been better. Our wedding was at Hammond Castle in Gloucester which has a unique set up. He was able to hook up his equipment indoor for the ceremony, and through the indoor courtyard during the cocktail hour, then seamlessly transition to the outdoor reception under the tent.
One of the most memorable things for me when working with Mike was planning the ceremony music when I was walking down the aisle. I wanted a very specific part of the song to play as I was walking down the aisle, and knew it would not sound right if it wasn’t timed properly. When I shared the song with him, he told me not to worry and that he would take care of it. The timing was PERFECT. When I watched the ceremony video back, my specific music selections and timing were just right. It may seem like a small thing, but it’s the details like that which make the day perfect.
The DJ for a wedding is such an important piece of the day. When working with Mike, I felt really at ease. I wasn’t sure exactly what music I wanted, and he was so accommodating. He was willing to be as involved in music selection and MC-ing as we wanted. Other than a few formal announcements (cake cutting, first dance etc) we didn’t want too much MC-ing. The song selections were perfect throughout the entire day, and our guests loved it. The dance floor was full all night.
My wedding day was absolutely perfect, and Mike at Mass Bay DJ was such a big piece of that. Our day would not have gone as smoothly as it did if it wasn’t for Mike. Thank you!!
Mike was absolutely incredible. He kept the party going all night, read the crowd and adjusted music perfectly. Everyone was on the dance floor! He listened to exactly what we envisioned and for sure delivered! He worked well with our other vendors making the night seamless. Most importantly Mike is a wonderful, relatable human who was flexible with us through initial planning, postponing and replanning our wedding; which we are so grateful for! If you are looking for a DJ, look no more!
Working with DJ Mike of Mass Bay DJ was an absolute pleasure! We cannot speak highly enough of him as the DJ for our wedding and would recommend him to anyone, for any event! He was extremely knowledgeable and professional and was able to not only incorporate every detail we asked, but as neither my husband or I are music (or wedding) experts, he put together a wonderful plan and helped us make sure our guests had an amazing time. He was so communicative throughout the planning process and as the wedding approached. One of the things that really set Mike apart for us from other DJs was that he truly made sure the whole event was about us and our guests. He did not overly insert himself into the event (we’ve all been at events where that happens!) and skillfully read the crowd, playing songs that kept everyone up and dancing all night! Our guests continue to tell us that it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to and for that we have Mike to thank!!
I think Mike did an amazing job. I would definitely recommend him for an event and I would use his services again in the future.
Mike had the dance floor full all night! Besides putting together a great experience for everyone at the wedding, Mike was attentive, calming, and open to all of our ideas in the time leading up to the event. Would definitely recommend!
This time last year, we were finding it very difficult to select a DJ. Brett being a musician himself, and me loving to dance, it was hard to find someone who we did not have to micromanage and could trust to keep the dance floor full! We spoke to MANY DJs, and I mean almost a dozen. Some were too flashy and wanted to emcee the entire thing, and some didn’t want to speak at all. At a wedding?!? Our thoughts exactly. Just before we were about to sign a contract with another DJ, we decided to look at the RLI’s recommended vendor list, and found Mike. He responded to us IMMEDIATELY and we set up a call. Within ten minutes of speaking with him, I felt confident that he knew exactly how to field the aunt that requests a bunch of songs while also keeping the party going. He was knowledgeable, easy to speak to, and truly cared about the company-client relationship. Over the course of the year, we spoke to Mike a couple times with random questions, thoughts, etc. and he always offered an honest opinion. I will never forget that when I asked him how he handles a million song requests, he said ‘Your guests are all paying to be there too and want to enjoy themselves, so I’m happy to use my judgement on what to play and when’. It was exactly what we were looking for in a professional DJ, and we didn’t even know it. We wanted the music to be good, and for our guests to feel like they were just as much a part of our special day as we were.
He’s also there to help you keep all of your surprises. As mentioned, my husband is a musician and wanted to surprise me with singing a song and playing guitar. Mike worked closely with Brett to plan for, keep, and make the surprise happen! It was by far my favorite part of the wedding.
We could go on and on and on about Mike, but you’ll have to connect with him to find out how great he is! He’s your DJ!
Mike is an awesome DJ. Our friends and family were on the dance floor all night-he knew the songs to play to get everyone on their feet and dancing, and he played just the right music during downtime of eating etc. We had a long list of songs we wanted played, and I’m pretty sure every one of them got played at some point throughout the night. We even wanted one special song that he hadn’t heard of (requested in the middle of the reception), and low and behold a few minutes later it started playing. Mike traveled up to Portland, ME for our wedding for a very fair travel charge, included ceremony microphones and speakers for us which was a huge help! He was super responsive with any questions we had, especially the weeks leading up to the wedding. Would hire him again in a heartbeat-definitely a great DJ with a lot of wedding experience-you can’t go wrong with him, he will make your party the best! Thanks Mike!
Choosing a DJ was way out of my comfort zone, but Mike DJ’d a wedding for friends of mine and everyone was talking about what an incredible time they had. That was enough of a recommendation for me, and I’m SO glad we booked Mike! He met with me in person which helped put me at ease. The dance party at our wedding was SO MUCH FUN – the only thing I knew I wanted was for people to be on the dance floor all night, and that absolutely happened. Our guests commented numerous times on what a great time they had dancing at our wedding. We highly recommend Mass Bay DJ.
Mike was great! He was super responsive and understanding of how crazy all the wedding planning is. The day of the wedding, he was fantastic. He read the crowd so well and kept the dancing going the entire time! I had so many guests come up to us later and comment on how great the DJ was and how much fun they had. Would definitely recommend!
Now that things are settling down a bit, Ned and I wanted to send along a word of thanks for your wonderful work at our daughter’s Sept. wedding in Dedham.
You somehow managed to enable every guest — representing a very broad range of musical tastes! — to have a wonderful evening. Those who wanted to dance had a great time with your selection of songs. Those who preferred conversation were able to enjoy the music without having to shout as they chatted.
Your announcements of the various events were so clear and warm — they kept things moving effortlessly all evening long.
And a special thanks for fulfilling our last-minute request the evening before — to have microphones at the wedding. (We didn’t realize until the rehearsal on Friday, that it would be helpful to have some amplification.) The sound during the ceremony was excellent — everyone could hear clearly, and yet somehow it still felt intimate and memorable.
Many thanks, Mike, for your expertise and talent and support. It was an indispensable part of the festivities.
Leslie & Ned, Newton
DJ Mike…what can we say. We love you. From the sounds of Sinatra to the 90’s hip hop throw backs and everything in-between, Mike knew just what the crowd needed to keep them dancing all night. Without MassBay, our wedding would not have been complete. Absolutely the best decision we made. Many, many thanks!
I can’t thank you enough for all of your help at our wedding. Not only were you an amazing DJ, you turned into the best wedding coordinator a bride could ask for. My family NEVER dances but you got them on the floor and everyone is still raving about how much fun they had. Thanks again for everything 🙂
I can’t thank you enough for such an awesome night. The dance floor was PACKED all night. Music was awesome and the crowd was feeling it. I could have danced for 4 more hours! I may not have been able to walk the next day but in the moment, I definitely could have kept going. I hope you enjoyed yourself too, I know you were working, but I like to think it was a fun crowd! We all love to have a good time and dance, in case you couldn’t tell;-)
Alex and I wanted to thank you again for the amazing job you did at our wedding! Thank you for all your hard work and an unforgettable night!
Thank you so much for last night. It was the best day ever and we’re so happy with how everything played out. I’m so happy you were part of the day and that we got to meet. Excellent job–you’re great at what you do.
Mass Bay DJ made my wedding the best it could possibly be. Aside from marrying my wife, it was the single best decision I made in regards to the big day. Personable, flexible, passionate, and knowledgeable are just a few ways to describe Mike as a person and a DJ. There is just no one else in New England who could do a better job. Nobody.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for making our wedding SO FUN! Mike did an amazing job and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with him as our DJ!! Thank you so very much!!!!!
My husband and I hired Mike to DJ our recent wedding, turns out it was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made! The planning process with Mike was comfortable, easy and fun. He gave suggestions, took our ideas and requests and delivered on all aspects the day of our wedding. We envisioned a full dance floor, from the kids to the grandparents, and that’s exactly what we got! Mike played music for all ages and from many genres, appealing to the whole guest list. He kept the dance floor full by keeping the music flowing all night. Looking back, we can honestly say it was the best party we’ve ever been to! We highly recommend Mike to every engaged couple, (or to anyone looking for a DJ). Thank you Mike for providing the perfect soundtrack to the best day of our lives!
Mike absolutely blew away all expectations we had! He did an outstanding job throughout the entire night, touching upon everything we had talked about, and even adding in his own personal touches. We have received more compliments on the music than I can count, and the dance floor was full of people dancing and having fun the entire night! My family and friends all loved the music he played, no matter the ages, and thought Mike was nothing but professional and personable. We would highly recommend Mass Bay DJ, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you SO much for making our wedding even more spectacular than we could have imagined! You Rock!!!!!!
Mike D, is an amazing DJ. We used him for our wedding and not only was he easy to work with, he was open minded and ultra prepared. We used a form that he provided to organize our event, and request music…everything went without a hitch. Mike played what we indicated were “Must Plays” and used our list to create an eclectic mix that my wife and I loved as did everyone else that attended! It was a dance party for all ages! In addition to setting the tone of the reception and delivering on our expectations, Mike D saved the ceremony! We arrived at the public park to find that there was no working power outlets. Knowing the area, Mike was quick to troubleshoot, ran to the store and purchased an inverter to rig up to an automobile so that we could proceed with music…. phenomenal.
My wife and I have and will continue to encourage people to reach out to Mike for any DJ/Entertainment needs! Thanks Mike!
Well, I think it’s safe to say that we knocked that wedding out of the park!! Mike, we can’t thank you enough for doing such an excellent job! A few comments I’ve heard, “The music was awesome!” “I never got off the dance floor.” “Best wedding I’ve ever been to in my life.” I might be biased, but I actually do think that that was the best wedding to ever exist on the earth. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
