Here we are in the summer of 2021 and I am grossly behind in putting together some blogs!  I've been working hard on some other personal things these past few months, and that has unfortunately taken my focus off the blog, but I am taking a break from that for this weekend to get some much needed "blog therapy" up online.  There will be more content uploaded in the coming weeks, I can promise you that.  You know part of the allure of hiring me to be your wedding DJ is the stellar reputation that I have forged over the…
Back in 2004, the rock band SR-71 would write and record a song called 1985. That same year, Wichita Falls, TX natives, Bowling For Soup would cover that same song and make it a Top 5 hit on the Billboard Adult Top 40 charts. Paul McCartney & Wings recorded a song for their 1973 album Band On The Run titled 1985.  I had to do a little deeper dive on McCartney's behind reasoning of the song and could not seem to find a clear meaning. I suppose Paul thought somehow that no one would be around in 1985 with lyrics…
Today it's back to the music, because it's that music that matters in our lives, and of course at your wedding reception. Your wedding reception should include a playlist of songs where EVERY song has a special meaning and makes you smile.  Inspiration for this post actually came to me from two sources. I was speaking with a co-worker (from my dayjob) about music recently and she mentioned she was going to go see Alanis Morrisette on her Jagged Little Pill tour coming up this summer. I don't know about you but I am totally ready for live music.  Alanis…
I've probably said this at least a 1000 times on my website, if not more. "The entertainment you decide to hire for your wedding day is the single most important part of your overall day and is a decision that should NEVER be taken lightly. It's a decision that should come right after you save your date and secure your wedding venue.  You are free to listen to The Mike Bills Podcast, as well as learn more about the importance of wedding entertainment through some of the many pieces of content created on this blog. You can listen to all…
Today's post will be a departure from the various musical research posts that I've been putting together over the past several months for current and prospective brides and grooms.  I needed to take this time to get some feelings and emotions out about how COVID has affected me as a professional wedding DJ. I remember back in August of 2020 when I was getting ready to perform at my first wedding since March 7, 2020, I was nervous. Of course, no matter if I do ONE wedding or a THOUSAND weddings, the nerves are always there because I take what…
If you wanted me to take the time to write about all the different genres of music that emerged during the 80s, I could very well be writing for the next 5 years.  The music of the 80s spanned so many genres, and in those genres were many subgenres.  Back in the late 80s, there was a type of electronic music that had it's roots back to New York City called freestyle.  Freestyle originated in the Hispanic neighborhoods around the Upper Manhattan area, as well as the area around The Bronx in New York City.   This NYC freestyle scene extended…

DJ Mike delivered well organized and orchestrated results that made for a great wedding and reception! Couldn't have picked a better DJ to cover our event and truly appreciated his availability to pick up the job and execute in such a short time period. I highly recommend his services, overall great quality.

Made Our Wedding Perfect

Before choosing Mike Bills as our wedding DJ, we looked at several companies and DJs and looked over the reviews for all of them. We chose Mike Bills because of the overwhelmingly great reviews he got and I am so glad we did! They were all spot on! Mike was great to work with, quick to respond, came to our rehearsal to do a run through with us.

Professional and Creative

Mike was kind, courteous, professional, and creative! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him for our destination wedding at Folly Beach. We gave Mike minimal guidance and he caught on to our "style" quickly and efficiently. Our guests are still raving about the music selections, and how they were a great balance of new tracks and standards for everyone to enjoy.
