Michael was absolutely amazing to work with from our first communication. He understood the mood we wanted to set and our priority to ensure that our guests had a fabulous evening. From the cocktail hour until 2 am when the dance floor finally cleared, Michael was an invaluable part of our night.

Having come highly recommended by countless people we spoke to, DJ Michael Coombs went well beyond any expectations on the greatest night of our lives.

He was the consummate professional throughout the entire planning and execution stages of our wedding. He was open, engaging, wanted to get to know us and those who had important roles in the wedding and couldn’t have been more efficient with his communication.

Most importantly, once the reception and party started, there was never a moment where the dance floor was not packed with our esteemed guests. Our experience with Michael Coombs was simply amazing and we cannot provide a high enough recommendation to another couple who are looking for a DJ on their wedding day.

Michael is the only DJ you will ever want to work with again. It is often a challenge to find a DJ who is organized, a great businessman and also has an ear for music.

From the beginning, Michael was always prompt, organized and patient when we were discussing our wedding and the types of music we wanted to hear. On our wedding day, Michael was there, prepared and even lined our massive bridal party in order for our entrance into the reception – a true life saver.

Throughout the night Michael helped keep our various speeches on track. He is a master DJ who knew the exact song to play next and kept our guests on the dance floor all night; nobody wanted the night to end.

Thank you again for being there for our wedding – you are the best!

Michael Coombs was the perfect DJ and MC for our wedding. Mike was very easy to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. He was very accommodating but did not shy away from sharing his experience with us whenever a tough decision had to be made.

As soon as we met with Mike, we immediately knew we were in good hands and had a good hunch that our entertainment was going to be the last thing on our minds leading up to our wedding. His preparation and experience were evident during our meetings and he did not fail to deliver. We are so appreciative of all the compliments that we received from our guests about the amazing vibe that Mike created.

Thank you Mike from the bottom of our hearts.

Michael Coombs, was excellent to work with. Very professional and respectful of my time. He was great at reading the crowd which kept people on the dance floor well into the night, he even stayed for an encore!

We had a fantastic night, thank you Michael for being a part of it!

We hired Michael to be our DJ and he ended up being so much more. He ended up acting as our Master of Ceremonies and helped set the tone for each part of our wedding – from the time our guests arrived until the final one departed.

Michael took an active role in helping us ensure sound and set up were optimal and worked seamlessly with other partners. Finally, he helped us throw a great party!

Our guests commented on how great the music was and the full dance floor was evidence of that.

Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with, and a big part of our wedding.

He was very professional in his approach and took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for. His suggestions about music, timing of the event and overall feel made for a flawless event.

Michael was recommended to us by our venue (Graydon Hall) and we would recommend him to anyone going forward. He was awesome.

Cara & Matt
Married August 14, 2015 – Graydon Hall Manor, Toronto


From our first meeting, approximately a year prior to the wedding, we found Michael very professional and approachable. We spoke on several occasions prior to the wedding to integrate our suggestions and he provided us with a comprehensive questionnaire to learn about us as a couple, our parents and the wedding party.

His strength is that he reads the crowd very well; we had a mostly younger crowd that wanted to party. His broad range of song selections got our older guests on the dance floor early on and then he changed pace and had the rest of us partying until the end. We requested the Horah, and his version was one of the highlights of the night.

Lastly, on a personal note, Michael is very easy to work with because first and foremost he is a collaborator. He is funny and has great interpersonal skills; this was abundantly clear as he also took on the role of MC. We would highly recommend Michael to any of our friends – in fact, numerous people asked us who our DJ was.

Thank you for surpassing our expectations.

Married July 25, 2015 – Private Estate, Barrie


We chose Michael Coombs to DJ for the best day of our lives because we wanted a professional DJ that specializes specifically in weddings, and we were more than happy with our decision.

We knew our wedding party would have diverse tastes and we wanted someone with the skills to feel out the crowd and get as many people on the dance floor as possible without being cheesy. We also did not have an MC planned and were happy to find out that Michael offered that service as well.

From start to finish our experience with Michael was amazing! He was always very professional and on the ball and we rested easy knowing that one of the most important aspects of our wedding was in good hands. His questionnaire was fun to fill out and as a result we loved our introduction. If you’re looking for THE BEST wedding DJ in Toronto, look no further. Michael is the Man!

My husband and I used Michael Coombs for our recent wedding and we weren’t disappointed! With so many DJ options out there, it’s hard to tell who to go with. When I reached out to several DJs, they all replied in a timely manner. Michael was the only one who offered us congratulations first before listing their pricing. All others seemed to only want my business, Michael was the only one who seemed to care. It may seem trivial but in an industry over saturated with people who just want your money, it was nice to come in to contact with someone who cares.

Michael had DJ’d for my cousins wedding the previous summer and you know how people always say guests remember 2 things- the food and the music… Well I certainly remembered the music at my cousins wedding a year later and Michael was the DJ!

Michael is personable with wanting to know so many details about everyone important to you. He really wants to know your tastes- dating back to high school days and concerts you’ve attended.

Michael is rated the number one DJ for a reason, he kept the dance floor packed and made it an amazing night!! Thank you Michael!!

My husband and I feel so fortunate to have had Michael as both our DJ and MC for our summer wedding at Graydon Hall Manor. It was the most incredible night of our lives and the most fun, thanks to the music! Michael was able to get EVERYONE (including my 94 year old grandmother) on the dance floor. I can honestly say that we danced with our guests the entire night and that I’ve never witnessed a better party! The entertainment far exceeded our expectations.

Michael is professional and reliable, and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone seeking exceptional service. Thank you Michael for playing our choice of music, for reading our crowd, and for creating the most memorable celebration!

My wife and I cannot thank Michael Coombs enough for DJing our wedding. Simply put, Michael was fantastic.

Leading up to our special day, Michael was easy to work with. He was very accessible and helped by providing suggestions to make our day perfect. It’s a great feeling knowing that your DJ/MC has everything under control, and we felt at ease the whole time because of Michael’s expertise.

During our wedding, Michael’s music selection was incredible. He had a packed dance floor all night, playing different genres of music so everyone could dance. We had a number of guests and vendors express to us how impressed they were with our DJ.

Thank you so much, Michael!

When it came time to figure out our suppliers there was no question that Michael would be our DJ. When the night arrived and the music began to play, Michael did an amazing job of feeling the crowd and catering to a diversified group…the dance floor was moving all night long, none of us wanted the music to ever end.

Thank you Michael for creating an atmosphere of everlasting memories.

Colin and I wanted our wedding celebration to be a fun and memorable experience for all our guests, and so the entertainment for the evening was really important to us. A wedding is a lot of things, but it’s also a great party!

We knew we wanted a DJ, but were hesitant to book a DJ company because we wanted a more personalized experience. Our wedding planner recommended Michael to us, and we’re so incredibly glad she did.

Michael was professional, personable, extremely helpful, and most importantly he kept the dance floor packed all night long! Michael’s dedication to personalizing our event was exceptional – he met with us before our wedding to get to know us and our wedding party, to review our music preferences, and to discuss what kind of event we wanted.

Not only did Michael keep the dance floor packed, Michael also provided the music for our ceremony and the lighting for our event (at the very last minute!). We also asked Michael to be the MC for the evening, and he kept our guests relaxed and entertained.

Thank you so so much Michael for everything! You made our wedding a memorable and fantastic party that no one will forget!

We couldn’t have chosen any better! Our whole experience working with Michael was fantastic, from start to finish!

He is reliable, calm under pressure, and pays attention to all the finer details for music selections. His experience in the industry and especially experience with our venue was also a huge bonus for us as we had to set up music on the rooftop and transition to the ballroom for remainder of the evening.

Michael helped us with several music selections and provided an incredible list of suggestions for all key events during the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He even helped last-minute with a surprise song from our Scottish family and a recording that was played during a speech.

We would highly recommend Michael for any event, and will be giving word-of-mouth recommendations for any friends/family looking for DJ’s in the GTA.

Having Michael Coombs DJ and MC at my wedding was the best decision I made!

He was thoughtful throughout the entire process and took the time to get to know my Fiancee and I so that the entire event could be exactly what we wanted. Michael made the entire event very personalized and he was both hilarious and professional.

He brought so much energy to the dance floor that everyone was up on their feet well past last call at the bar. I would highly recommend Michael for anyone who wants to have the best wedding ever!

Thanks again for an amazing night!

After searching and searching for the perfect DJ, one that would work with us to develop the perfect ceremony you could bring your mother to, and a reception where no one was left sitting, we found Michael Coombs.

From the start we knew Michael was the right DJ for the job. He walked us through typical weddings he has done, but also offered advice to make our day unique. Between doing site visits with our venue to ensure there would be no hiccups, to performing an amazing reception, Michael Coombs really made our day special.

We have had countless remarks from our friends and family alike saying how amazing our DJ was and couldn’t believe how fluid everything felt. You know those awkward moments where everyone shuffles off the dance floor? With Michael Coombs that never happened. If people weren’t into a song, he switched it up. He most definitely isn’t the type of DJ to just make a playlist and throw it on. He came in with a good idea of what we liked and what our families would enjoy and made the night unforgettable.

Joseph and I would like to thank you for all of your efforts to ensure that our wedding music complimented our style. You gladly worked with us to customize our playlist and conducted yourself as a true professional on and off the microphone.

Our evening had a natural flow from cocktail hour straight through to dancing. It was evident all of our guests, young and old, were having a great time on the dance floor.

Tessa & Joseph

When I got engaged, I knew immediately that I wanted Michael Coombs as our DJ – he has an amazing reputation in the city.

He took the time and care to get to know us both and what kind of party we wanted. Our families were so pleased with the music from the ceremony being perfectly timed, to the reception and dancing lasting until the venue closed. My husband’s West Indian family couldn’t believe that the he could also play soca, and they danced all night long. He was a pleasure to work with and incredibly professional.

Lisa & Ryan

We knew we wanted a great dance party at our wedding – so much so that we made sure the bar was right next to the dance floor – but the party we had was totally beyond our expectations!

Michael was amazing to work with and he created the best atmosphere and kept everyone dancing all night. I wish we could go back and do it all over again.

Thank you so much Michael, you are truly the best!!!

I work in the wedding industry and as a product of my job I hear DJ’s at almost every event I work. When it was my turn to get married there was no doubt in my mind who I would be using as a DJ for our wedding. Michael was one of our first phone calls and not surprisingly one of the best wedding decisions we made.
He is professional, super easy to work with and above all takes the time to understand the feel you are trying to achieve for your wedding. From the ceremony to dinner and beyond we had people commenting on how amazing the music was – he even had my 86 year old grandmother on the dance floor!!

Having our wedding be a fun party was priority number one for us and a month after our special day we are still having friends and family reach out to tell us it was one of the best weddings they have even been to!

We have to credit Michael with keeping the dance floor packed all night. I can’t recommend Michael highly enough!

Well done!
