Michael's Bio

Hello! My name is Michael Lang and it would be an honor to serve as the DJ and MC for your special event.
I have been in the DJ entertainment and event management business since 2014. I oversaw a staff of 4 DJs back at the University of Illinois and worked events all across campus for organizations, clubs, special events and banquets for students and faculty members on behalf of the university.
Music has been a major part of my life since before I could even walk – to the point where I really can’t function properly without it. I am a major fan of all genres and types of music. One of the main things that I pride myself on is the ability to adapt and be flexible. I may look young, but I am an old soul who deeply enjoys the music “before my time”.
What I love most about music is that it brings people together and serves as a universal language we all can understand. It has the ability to make you forget all of your problems and just feel good!
Throughout my years with Sounds Abound working with and assisting the other DJs I have learned what it takes to make your event as special as it can be and for it to go off without a hitch. I am here to serve you. With your vision and my execution, I am confident our partnership will lead to a magical night that will be remembered for the rest of our lives.

What Clients Say About Michael

STILL getting compliments!

Michael Lang was the BEST DJ I have ever danced too! He kept the dance floor happy for the whole time. Though we are about one month after our wedding date, we are still getting comments about his exceptional talent. He was keen to switch things up if guests were not dancing/didn't know the current song. In addition, he was so good at transitioning songs that it made it feel like one long song. We also got the photobooth, and Tony and his team with the photobooth were so easy to work with and the photos are phenomenal! The best part was you could either print or text the photos to yourself, so my guests really loved that aspect!

Couldn't have imagined better!

First of all, we had a very last minute DJ cancellation and honestly I'm so glad we found Sounds Abound in our mad scramble for a DJ. Funnily enough, we found them because they were my parents' wedding DJ 20-something years ago. They were great then and they're great now.

Michael Lang was truly amazing on our wedding night! We have a very diverse taste in music (as my husband says, 1920 all the way to 2020 music). He was able to cater to our music taste, throwing in a ton of songs from our high school years to our family's country faves to wedding classics in a way that kept all of our family and friends of all ages dancing all night.

Not only that, but Michael was excited about our wedding and excited to learn about us as a couple. He made every part of the process seamless. He even went above and beyond filming a few clips of our reception and sent us a video that we will cherish forever.

Michael Lang is the BEST!

Working in several different locations throughout the evening, Michael Lang set the mood for everything from our ceremony, to our happy hour, and eventually our reception! He kept the night moving with ease and there was never a dull moment. We highly recommend Michael and services from Sounds Abound as everyone was very pleasant to work with and plan our special day with.

Michael Lang did an amazing job being our DJ. Our guests have been raving about him after our ceremony and reception. He was easy to work with, very responsive and very knowledgeable with the music. Nobody wanted to get off the dance floor! Our guests enjoyed him very much and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ or MC. Thanks so much!

Sounds Abound was awesome! The initial phone conversation, the planning, and finally on our actual wedding day, Michael was beyond amazing. He was flexible, accommodating, and extremely easy to work with. My husband said that within the first 5 minutes of speaking with Michael, he knew he was the right fit. He asked all the right questions and had all the right answers. Having an online portal to pick and choose song preferences and ceremony songs was a great addition. Michael coordinated with our contact at the venue, which was super helpful in terms of day-of planning and setup. He made sure to ensure that for the second time we said “I Do” was exactly how we envisioned it would be. Honestly once the music started, I don’t think any of our friends or family (including 5 of our flower girls & even myself) left the dance floor! I cannot thank Michael and Sounds Abound enough for making our day so so much fun and a day everyone will remember!!

We had a lot to worry about on our wedding day, however it is easy to look back now and know that Sounds Abound was not one of them. The company was very professional in their services from the very beginning stages, and helped ease any worries going into event day - unlike some other services you may book and cross your fingers everything works out okay! We had chosen DJ Michael Lang who impressed us with his bio video - and it didn’t hurt that we learned he went to our alma mater as well! We got the full package, which included the uplighting and photobooth. Michael was very helpful in letting us know what to expect, and very communicative from several weeks before the event until the night of. As an emcee, the introductions and speeches went very smoothly. Michael did an excellent job the rest of the night as well helping make it a great wedding! Thank you Michael Lang and Sounds Abound, highly recommend.

Our DJ, Michael Lang, did a phenomenal job at our wedding and helped make it the perfect day. He was extremely communicative from the beginning as we worked through which songs we’d like to have played, and the general theme of music for our wedding. He was able to read the room and play the appropriate music at every moment. If you’re looking for an enthusiast and professional DJ for your wedding, choose Michael Lang.

10/10 would recommend

Sounds Abound Entertainment exceeded all expectations for our wedding. We used their DJ services, and utilized the photo booth and up lighting services as well. DJ Michael Lang was PHENOMENAL and kept the party going all night long. He did an outstanding job keeping everyone entertained and helping the reception run smoothly. We had multiple guests tell us how "fire" our wedding playlist was. There was never a time when the dance floor wasn't full of guests dancing the night away and having fun. The photo booth was definitely a hit with friends and family. It was a good way to document guests attendance. The staff at Sounds Abound was very responsive and accessible. They were very accommodating to changes that were made during COVID. We could not have asked for a better company and DJ to have used for our wedding reception.

Michael was our DJ for our wedding at Harry Caray’s. Due to The pandemic, we were force to reschedule our wedding multiple times. Sounds abound was extremely easy to work with during this situation. Michael did a great job communicating via email and through phone calls so that our day was exactly what we wanted. Michael was very organized and professional during the ceremony and reception. Now to the important part, the music. It was outstanding! Everyone at the wedding had been on lock down for a year and they were ready to dance. Michael made sure the dance floor was packed all night. Overall, we could not be happier with our experience with Michael and Sounds Abound.

We can’t say enough good things about Sounds Abound. From the very beginning they were super easy to work with and very laid back. They were super flexible and understanding when it came to us having to change our date twice due to the pandemic. We enjoyed having Michael Lang and team work our event and we received multiple compliments from guests regarding them. We had a technical difficulty during the ceremony unrelated to Sounds Abound, They made a quick decision and stepped in with some music to ease the tension and silence, it was perfect. Sounds Abound are true professionals.

We were very happy with the DJ work that Michael Lang did for our daughter’s wedding last weekend.
He communicated well with us the weeks leading up to the wedding, including helping to coordinate the playing of audio to match up with a video/slide show we wanted to play.
He did a very good job as emcee for the evening, and the dance floor was almost always full.
I would recommend his DJ services to others.
