I am Mike Hill and I love music.
I believe that the right song, played at the right moment,
can create a memory that will bring you back
to that special time and place whenever you hear it.
What better reason to hire a professional DJ for your special event?
I have an ever-growing, extensive list of songs spanning all genres and time periods... and if I don't have it, I can get it! So whether it's a wedding reception, birthday, anniversary, company picnic, or even a pasture party, I can promise you a memorable time. I also do DJ work at dance clubs.
So what makes a good DJ? Well, as I've said many times, anyone can build a playlist and press PLAY. The 3 things that stand out in my mind are 1) Can he/she read the crowd and do they know when to play the right song? 2) Does he/she know how to involve everyone if necessary and do they have the ability to command the crowd's attention? and 3) Is he/she presentable? In other words, can they fit into the most elegant setting as well as into the wildest party? This one may not sound all that important at first - but try having your fancy shindig with a guy that looks as though he should be working as a DJ at a strip club and see how crucial it becomes. All-in-all, it's tougher to find than you might think.
Hiring a DJ should not be a last minute decision or an afterthought. Take time to look over your options and choose someone that is a fit for your event.
I am not a Karaoke DJ.
Maybe someday I will add this to my available options,
but for now I am strictly music. If someone feels the overwhelming need
to sing along, I will gladly hand them the microphone
- but there won't be any bouncing ball on a screen for them to follow.
I try my best to stay abreast of the most recent popular music in the three major categories - Rock, Country, and Hip Hop. I research the top selling albums and singles charts weekly, and add whichever new songs I might not have to my library. I have resources for all types of music, old and new. If there are particular songs you would like to hear at your event, I can get them.
Many times, newer songs will contain unsuitable language. My music library is clearly marked with both original and clean versions of most popular songs.
Once I have your list of requested songs, I will build a playlist to fill the allotted time. The list will likely change throughout the course of the event, as I make adjustments for the crowd's reactions. Also note that time might not allow for all songs on the list to be played. I generally pad the list as a just-in-case measure. The length of the playlist will also change if guests have song requests and you have given me permission to honor them.
I have been told that
my rates are the best around.
I will do my best to work within any budget.
I have a 3 hour minimum at any event.
I also add a minimal travel charge for any event outside the Tyler area.
Set up and tear down are included in my price
and do not need to be added when calculating event time.
Once we discuss and agree on a time/date/price, etc., you will be required to make a deposit of 50% and sign a contract in order to book me. Final payment is due no later than the day of the event.
I am equipped to play for around 300 people. If the event is larger, and the location does not have its own sound equipment, price will be adjusted for whatever rentals are necessary.
I also have a full lighting set up and fog machine, which is available at a fixed charge.
Please remember to include travel and lighting when filling out the contract, if your event requires either of them.
Our wedding was very stressful to plan and it even rained. The easiest part of our wedding was having you as our DJ. Without very much direction at all, you created an amazing atmosphere for our wedding. It was so nice to have something go so smoothly and we will recommend you to everyone. You deserve more money than you are asking for, thank you for the thought and effort you put into the evening.
To this day we have people talking about the song "I love the rainy night" that you played when it started to pour after the ceremony. And I loved having a chance to tell you the songs we did and did not want played. People don't realize that a DJ can make or break a wedding, the DJ creates the flow of the wedding and ceremony. The timing for each song played was perfect, you kept our guests happy depending on the mood!
You are a very talented DJ and we hope to see you again!

We had the best “DISCO” party last year for 45 second graders. Most in not all of them do not know what “disco” meant. The parents however had a blast coming up with costumes. The DJ Mike Hill had the kids do fun dances, costume contest; games and they all had a blast. It was the most fun birthday party we ever had. In fact a year later and the now 3rd graders are still talking about it. I would recommend DJ Mike Hill for any party you are thinking about hosting. A successful party for us is people having fun, parents laughing, and my twin girls having a blast. DJ Mike completed our mission impossible; keep 45, eight year olds happy and active for 2 hours!!!!

DJ Mike was a wonderful part of my daughter's wedding. Planning an out of town wedding was risky but DJ Mike was at the reception on time and fully prepared. He worked with the wedding party and the photographer so that all aspects of the wedding went smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ.
Please call for prices and availability, or feel free to fill out the contact form and I will get back to you ASAP!
