No matter the location of your Charleston wedding, your aim should be to make it a classy and elegant affair filled with the music you know and love. Whether it's a laid back afternoon and evening at grandmother's house in Summerville or a grand and luxurious affair at the Kiawah Island Club, brides and grooms should be aiming for a classy and elegant vibe. When I decided to create Mike Bills Entertainment, one of the primary goals was to alleviate any and all fears of hiring a tacky and cheap wedding DJ. While my humble beginnings as a DJ began back in the mid 1990s on the radio, I had a very brief stint as a wedding DJ back in the early 2000s working for a company here in town.

Despite it's brevity, there were quite a few things back then that I observed that would forever alter my perceptions of professional wedding DJs and how they "should" act. Opinions would be formed that would put together my mission statement for how I would run my own company.

But I digress from talking about the type of wedding DJ you should hire.
