About DJ Mike -

Owner operated, Digital DJ provides disc jockey services all around Colorado including the Denver Metro Area, Ft. Collins, Greeley, Colorado Springs and Rocky Mountain locations such as: Breckenridge, Vail, Estes Park and More! We are looking forward to entering our 19th year of business in 2019!

Michael Striplin purchased Digital DJ in 2006 which had been established in 2000 by Brian Spinnato. He brought seven years of wedding industry service to the business prior to owning Digital DJ. Michael has worked with his wife's company, Crystaline Photography and Video, LLC as a videographer since 1999. He had seen and covered hundreds of weddings before even taking on being a disc jockey as his main occupation. This allowed him to see the very best and worst of DJ personalties and hone his skills to what works the best for every type of event. With training from the previous owner and the thirteen years of experience since purchasing the company, Michael has become a #1 DJ personality. On an average he covers 30-40 events a year. His out going personality, attention to detail and his willingness to make every event spectacular sets him a part from your average "big company" DJs. And the reason we are recommended by almost everyone who has used us in the past. Call us for a FREE consultation to see why we are the best choice for your wedding, corporate event or party!

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon do I need to let you know if I want to book with you? Do you have a contract?
As soon as possible, some clients book a year or more out with us, and others may wait until just a few months out, however dates do book quickly, especially weekend dates. Digital DJ can not hold your date unless you have signed a written contract with us and paid a retainer fee for our services. Contracts are a must and we never do a job without one.
What is the cost of your services?
Rates vary according to the type of event, date and time-frame needed, location of the event and other specific needs such as use of additional lighting and other special effects. We prefer to work with each client as an individual and tailor our packages to your needs. Please contact us directly with information about your event and we would be happy to work up a quote for you. Weddings start at $900 for 5 hours of coverage.
What is your deposit/retainer fee?
Our non-refundable booking fee is 50% the total cost of the services you wish us to perform. The booking fee is deducted from your total amount due. The remaining portion of the contracted fee is due on or before your event date. Any overtime fees for time requested above and beyond the requested contracted time is also due the day of your event.
Do you charge for travel?
We do not charge for travel within the Denver metro area and within a 1 hour drive from Denver. All other areas will depend on the distance we will have to travel and whether or not we will need hotel accommodations.
Will you be willing to play music requests?
We love requests and are more than happy to play them. We use good judgment skills in playing appropriate songs that fit the tone of your event and will also honor any specific requests of songs from you to not be played as well.
What kinds of music do you have?
Digital DJ has all different genres of music. Including Rock, R&B, Rap, Disco, Hip Hop, Hard Rock, Country, Gospel, Jazz, Blues, Alternative, Bluegrass, Mambo, Reggae, Waltz, Latin, Polka, and Techno. If you have a special request for a certain style of music, just let us know and we will make sure it will be played at your event. We are more than happy to allow you to make a list of songs that you would like to hear played at your event.
Will the volume be controlled?
Yes, You are in control of the volume of the music. We want you and your guest to be comfortable at a volume that you feel is reasonable. If at any moment you feel that the music is too loud please let us know.
How much time do you allow for set-up?
Arrival Time is at least one hour prior to the start time that you have contracted us to start providing music for you and your guests. This is to ensure ample time to arrive to your venue, set-up and to be ready to provide our services at contracted start time. You will not be billed for this set-up time. Should you need us to be set-up earlier than 1 hour prior to the DJ start time, but not playing music there will be a $75 service fee.
Do you need any additional items at the venue such as a table, chair, etc ?
We come fully equipped with a table, extension cords, lights, mics and sound system. All we need is a power source to plug into. Should this power source be a generator please be sure that it is suitable for handling our equipment. If you are using generators for your entire event it is recommended that our system have it's own separate generator for power. If we will be playing outdoors we will also need some sort of shelter to set our equipment under. Colorado is notorious for quick moving storms that come in and move out in a flash so we will need to ensure that our equipment is protected from weather. We also need shade because the sun can overheat equipment. If your venue does not provide an area for a disc jockey like this please let us know so we can bring our own tent.
Will you be suitably dressed for our occasion?
From an elegant formal affair to something more casual your DJ's dress attire will compliment the theme and tone of your event. Standard attire is a suit and tie unless otherwise requested.
May we call your references?
Yes, We do have a list of clients that have previously worked with us in the past. Available upon request.
How much DJ experience do you have?
Michael has been a DJ at 30-40 events a year since the purchase of the company in 2006. He's worked many different types of events from small store openings to grand 300+ guest count corporate events. The majority of the events he has covered are weddings because he specializes in them. His services are more of a Master of Ceremonies or MC style which means he helps facilitate all of the important activities that are planned by making announcements, coordinating with other vendors, and customizing a timeline for all of his clients.

Event Tips & Considerations...
How is the reception location designed?
Some venues have multiple rooms rather than one large room. It’s best to keep everyone in the same room for the party so that they can hear the music and once the formalities start you don’t have to round people up for the toast or the first dance. If they are around the music all night they will be more likely to participate when the dance portion of the event begins. If the venue you have chosen doesn't allow for this chat with us about how we can make the transitions between events more seamless.
Can the room be dimmed?
This is important to consider because sometimes lights can only be turned on or off. People are less likely to dance in bright lights so it helps with the atmosphere of the party if the level of the lights can be controlled. We do provide a small light set-up free of charge with every booking that can help set the mood of your event. This light set-up includes: a colored LED Panel, White LED Disco Ball and a Laser Light Show. Up-lighting for the surrounding reception area is available as an add-on or included in our mid to high packages. Up-Lighting can really add to the ambiance of the room and is helpful for lights on or off situations.
How convenient is it for the vendors to load equipment?
To avoid any delays and headaches you should provide instructions on how and where to load in and out of the venue before the day of your event. If the venue also requires paid parking or special passes you should see if the venue can reserve a spot for the DJ. Paid parking fees should also be discussed with the DJ beforehand and paid by the client or added to the final bill.
Is there a noise ordinance in the area of your reception?
Some places are located in residential areas or in Hotels with guests and you can only play the music softly. To avoid possible fines, for you or the DJ, make sure you understand the building's policy on sound levels. Also, consider that people are more likely to dance if the music is louder because they can “feel” the music. If we are asked to "stop" playing music by police authorities you will still be responsible for paying us for the remainder time we are booked for your event. Having a clear contract with your venue about acceptable decibel levels is strongly suggested.
Do you know where the DJ is going to be at the reception?
Put the DJ by the dance floor. The party will be better if the DJ can get a feel for the crowd and event. If you put DJs in a corner or closet they can’t get the feel of the crowds energy and your event might suffer. It's also not wise to put tables with guests in between the DJ and the dance floor because it will not only be uncomfortably loud for those guests, but because of the reasons we mentioned above.
Are there multiple events going on at the same time?
Some places hold multiple events at the same time and separate rooms with fold out walls. If this is the case try to setup the room where there is a minimal amount of sound bleeding through the walls. Find out the timeline of the other event to ensure that you won't be saying your wedding vows at the same time the DJ next door is blaring the Macarena!
Testimonials

A few great comments from happy couples....

Mike was awesome to work with. He is fun, outgoing and very personable. He played all the music we wanted him to play and more. We had a short story for each of the people in our wedding party for him to say when he announced them. He knocked it out of the park, not only did he read each story quickly and perfectly, he read them with heart and fun enthusiasm! He made that part of the reception so meaningful to us. He kept all the activities going at such a perfect pace, we were able to start the dancing early. That was fantastic! We had so many guests come up to us at the wedding and after to say that they loved Mike! The dance floor was packed all night long.

I had a small destination wedding (45 guests) at the Silverthorne Pavilion. Mike was our DJ for the ceremony and the reception, and he did a wonderful job. He was dressed professionally, and played the variety of music I asked for. I can't say that I remember all of the ceremony music particularly well since I was a little distracted; I didn't hear anything odd, so I'm assuming he played the right music and the right time. I gave him a strange mix of genres for dinner, and he made it work really well.

The dance music was a blast. Again, he played all of the odd songs I asked for and made it work with more classic reception/dance music. He was very accommodating for requests. Overall it was an awesome evening, and the music was great. He had a little bit of lighting for the dance floor, but it didn't need much.

He also went out of his way to ensure things were flowing well, even if it wasn't exactly according to schedule. He was very flexible about when to do the first dance, the cake cutting, etc. when dinner ran long. He approached us at various times of the night in a very unobtrusive manner to determine when to do the scheduled events. He was exactly the kind of DJ we needed for an unrehearsed ceremony and laid-back reception; he kept things going without being pushy, nor was he inattentive.

I would definitely recommend DJ Mike. It was a great night.

Mike did an amazing job as DJ of our wedding! I would recommend him to anyone and so would all of my guests. There was not a moment from the time he started that the dance floor wasn't packed with people getting their groove on. I have some eclectic music tastes and he did a great job of incorporating the songs I love and requested into a mix that everyone was able to enjoy. From the start he was willing to come and meet with me one-on-one to discuss the vision for our wedding. He was on top of getting back to me with every phone call and email- even while his wife was giving birth to their first son!!! He was fun but very professional, prompt, able to take charge when needed and made everything run smoothly for the event while looking like he was having a great time doing it. I cannot say enough good things about this guy. The value of his service was way above what we paid! Thanks Mike:)
