WHAT CLIENTS SAY
DJ Misfitz did an awesome job for my mom's retirement party. This was my first time planning a party, and he was very helpful. The booking process was simple, he also asked was there anything special he should play for the event. I thought it was great the he asked for my input. DJ Misfitz kept the party moving smoothly breaking for blessing of the food and speeches. He was also very accommodating with taking the guest request for music. I have to say DJ Misfitz was very professional and friendly to all the guest. If I ever have another event I would definitely be booking DJ Misfitz for the event. I just want to say thanks so much for making my mom retirement party special for her and her friends.
Micah is an amazing poet and an even more amazing performer! He is prompt in his responses to booking inquiries and puts on a hell of a show! He is flexible and easy to work with. He always makes his audience feel as though they have some control over the performance. It is these interactions that make Micah the iconic performer that he is. You leave his shows some how changed for the better, with a whole heap of things to ponder on!
