Testimonials Mike Paganelli


DJ Mike Paganelli was amazing! A HUGE part of the success of our wedding was due to DJ Mike and the set he played! We had a pretty decent play & do not play list that Mike stuck to for us, he totally got the vibes and genres we were into and killed it! Everyone raved about him and the music! The blisters on my feet and multiple people with lost voices prove what a fanfuckingtastic time we all had!

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin with this review. DJ Mike was phenomenal, my husband and I have actually talked about throwing more parties just so we can hire him again. From our first phone conversation until our last dance, I was consistently impressed with Mike. He spent time getting to know my fiancé (at the time) and myself, our taste in music, the audience he would be entertaining, and he hit the nail on the head! From the first song, everyone was on the floor and danced the night away. I’ve never been to a wedding where so many people were engaged for the entire night before, and (selfishly) I’m so glad it was mine. We had so much fun – hire DJ Mike, you will not regret it.

From the moment we started working with C-Zone Entertainment, we knew we made the best choice! Gina & Diane were very responsive to ALL of our inquiries & made planning our wedding from FL extremely easy! Diane went out of her way to assist with music listings for our ceremony as well as guiding us through the entire process! DJ Mike was absolutely fabulous! He worked with us from the beginning & both he and Diane always made me feel like we were the only wedding they were planning. We felt like a priority & they didn’t leave out one detail in making our day perfect! Mike P had the dance floor packed the ENTIRE wedding! Not only did he use his expert crowd reading skills to ensure the music mix was right, he worked in our (& our parents) favorites, & gave us such wonderful advice along the way to ensure a personal, flexible, amazing set! He made a special cut of our first dance song which was beyond flawless! Our guests of all ages can’t stop raving about how amazing Mike was! We had an absolute blast! Our guests, myself & husband are over the moon with Mike’s work! Mike did an amazing job with the uplighting! It was perfectly romantic at dinner & beyond fun during the party! Synced with the music impeccably! It set the ambiance beautifully & set the mood! We had a string trio of a Harp, Violin, & Cello for our ceremony, then Keys with Harp at Cocktail hour, & Keys for Dinner. ALL the live music & talent surpassed all of our expectations! They did a custom song for our recessional; it was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes! The live musicians are superb! They helped set our ambiance as well, acoustically outstanding! It couldn’t have turned out better! Mike ensured the evening stayed on time, made the magic happen & our wedding is unforgettable because of his excellent work! Best day ever is an understatement! We highly recommend using C-Zone, DJ Mike, & live musicians!

Our C-Zone DJ, Mike Paganelli, was better than anything I could have imagined for our wedding. He totally blew us away – we loved the mix of great, classic dance songs with more recent hits & our favorites, we loved the way smoothly transitioned in between songs, we appreciated his attention to detail, and we appreciated his ability to run the show without being the center of attention. He was AWESOME! My husband and I have received so many compliments on the music and the rocking dance floor. We agreed that if we could have danced for another 10 hours, we would have in a heartbeat. C-Zone also provided the live music for our wedding ceremony. As someone who trained to be a professional ballerina, I hoped to use some classical ballet music in our processional and ceremony. The musicians did a fantastic job of taking the pieces I wanted and adapting them with a clarinet/violin/cello trio. It sounded absolutely beautiful. Thanks, C-Zone!

Carolyn and Chris - Connor’s Center - Aug 2017


I found Mike Paganelli through C-Zone from a friend who had used a different DJ from C-Zone for her wedding. I felt pretty overwhelmed at the thought of finding a wedding DJ, I didn’t know how to tell a good one from a bad one, but I was confident in my friends recommendation so I gave C-Zone, and Mike a chance. Turns out, it was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Mike was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end, he took the time to meet with us before we even officially hired him, then again a few weeks before the wedding, in a snow storm, to make sure all the small details were in order. The best part about hiring Mike however was his music, from the second he played the first song for the dancing portion of the wedding I knew it was going to be an all-night dance party, and I wasn’t wrong! His music flowed seamlessly, he chose the best dance songs, he didn’t play any of the corny wedding songs that everyone is sick of and it was the perfect mix of current and classic. If I had any complaint it would be that I didn’t get to talk to enough people at my wedding because I was too busy dancing all night! Working with C-Zone was also a pleasure, we also hired a string quartet to do our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were fantastic, they already knew all the songs we wanted (they will learn specific songs) and they sounded great! The administrative staff was also great, between the online portal and the hands on service I felt so confident that everything was taken care of, it made it possible to really enjoy my night.
