Weddings in Sonoma

I had another great wedding with The Depot Hotel Restaurant and Garden in Sonoma a week ago with another one coming up there in a few more weeks. Gia and her staff at The Depot are a great team to work with for me as the DJ and for the client.

This was during dinner when everyone was seated after the ceremony in front of the fireplace and waiting to continue the reception. If you're looking at venues in Sonoma check out The Depot and let Gia know you read it from DJ Mike Parent.

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding go to and email me at I have some open dates coming up and would like to do some more weddings especially in my local area in the East Bay areas around Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek and Livermore, CA.

I would love to hear from you about what you are looking for in a DJ. What are you looking for when you talk to or meet with a DJ? What are the main concerns you have when considering a DJ? More often now I find couples who are looking for someone who can remove their concerns about planning, time lines, coordination and more. I often handle the time line management and coordination with the venue or caterer and other vendors; as well as announcements and introductions. Let me know what you are looking for or what did sway your decision when hiring a DJ and how it worked for you.

2014 - More Weddings and catching up with old friends.

2014 has begun with a number of new wedding requests including more visits to The Depot Hotel in Sonoma on the way. If your wedding is coming up and you are looking for a DJ check out my website at and email me at
As a reminder, I am based in Danville, CA near quite a few wonderful wedding and event venues.

I also have been catching up with another old friend from my days on the radio in Maryland. I was on WINX in Rockville, MD near Washington, D.C. and had the pleasure and privilege to work with Larry Burnett. I was still a newbie as far as on-air experience and Larry was a total class act walking me through things at the station, giving me tips, and making me comfortable as I went on live for the first time at WINX.
If you don't know, Larry was one of the original members of the group Firefall. He also has some solo music from the last few years you can find on iTunes and other places. I look forward to catching up further with him soon and wish him all the best.
