Mike MaciejewskiSounds Abound DJ and Master of Ceremonies
Hello and Welcome,
Thanks for taking the time to read my bio. I have been a DJ and MC for over a decade, and would love to use that experience to customize an event for you. When I first came to Sounds Abound, I truly loved that they focused on the Bride and Groom’s individual wishes and truly let us customize their special night. An event built for two, but enjoyable for all.
As a full time DJ, I’ve had residencies in clubs throughout the Chicagoland area and am glad to call Chicago my home. With the diversity of all the people located here, it has given me the experience to make memorable nights for each of my clients. With years of musical knowledge and willingness to adapt to every genre and individual tastes in music, there is never a dull time in this industry.
Thank you again for taking the time to read my bio and I hope to get to know you further, through planning and of course, on the dance floor.
What Clients Say About Mike
Sounds Abound was one of the easiest, efficient, and professional vendors I've interacted with throughout my wedding planning process. They were always quick to answer messages, arrange phone calls, and pair us with a fantastic DJ. We had our wedding about a month ago, and I still have friends and family reminisce and comment on how much fun they had at our reception. Our DJ captured our party vibe amazingly! We had one small "hiccup" with our first dance song going a little longer than we had originally requested, flustering my groom a teeny bit as we had a choreographed dance... but no one else seemed to notice and it's something we laugh about now. Other than this one error that we've full on embraced, the rest of the night was so freaking fun that I have to give Sounds Abound 5 stars ~ for not only the best night ever but for such an easy-going all-around process.

We tore up the dance floor thanks to DJ Mike Macie!
We met DJ Mike at the Sounds Abound open house back in April and were really impressed with his song selections, music style, and set-up. Mike was able to bring in additional equipment for the best acoustics at our venue with separated dining and dancing areas. He went above and beyond by tracking down several specific songs we requested through various sources like Spotify and YouTube. Even though there were so many songs to go through on our requested list, Mike was able to throw in other songs similar to the ones we liked and had the floor packed! Towards the end of the night, he was throwing down amazing mashups! Heck, even his assistants were joining us for the Cupid Shuffle! We could tell DJ Mike Macie is highly talented and has a passion for his job. He even went the extra mile by bringing his own additional sound and lighting equipment. For anyone else reading this, we would highly recommend him to play at your wedding! We also had the enclosed Fun Booth and there was not a single moment the photo booth was empty. There was a vast spread of props for our guests to choose from. At the end of the night. we received a link to the online gallery of ALL the guests who used the photo booth! Sounds Abound was one of the most responsive and reliable vendors we chose for our wedding. The staff and DJs are personable and wanted to ensure the best experience for our wedding. I sincerely hope they continue to hold their DJ open house. Without it, we never would've found DJ Mike Macie!

Sounds Abound and all of the staff I worked with were amazing! We used Sounds Abounds for our employee awards banquet this year. Ken Overbey, who set everything up for us, went out of his way to ensure we were ready to go and even came on-site to check in with me. Larry Merkel, the DJ was great! He made announcements throughout the evening and even got a non-dance crowd up and dancing. He even danced with us which I received numerous great comments about. We also utilized the photo booth. The pictures came with our logo at the top, designed by Sounds Abound. All of our staff members were blown away at how much fun it was, the props that were provided, and the quality of the photo booth pictures. Our photo booth attendant Mike Macie, was wonderful as well! He went out of his way to have fun and talk to everyone. I have never received so many great compliments about our employee awards banquet from our staff members, and I truly appreciate the service from Sounds Abound for making this a great night!
