Dieter & Alice Burundi Drums & African Vibe At Alhambra Hall

21 July 2013

Alhambra Hall provides an excellent backdrop for photos and a great feel for social occasions as it overlooks the harbor within the Old Village of Mt Pleasant.Having met Dieter & Alice back in March as they booked me, I knew this would be an extremely entertaining and NOT your typical wedding reception. Their reception was one of the most interesting and entertaining I have done to date.

Alice is African and when her and Dieter booked me, they let me know that there would be a large amount of African and Samba line dance music needed. I told them, "No problem, I aim to please and will play anything that you need me to play,"

However, it wasn't until the weeks leading up to the wedding that I would find out I would be accompanied by 10 Burundian drummers, which would do a few performances during the evening. Wow!

The introduction of the bride & groom had about a 8-10 minute performance with the Burundian drummers, followed by the official introduction of Dieter & Alice as husband and wife and to enjoy their first dance together.

Highly Recommend

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.

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.

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.
