DJ Spike specializes in mobile karaoke and bar DJing. With vocal training and classical education in music, he wants you to sound like a rock star - and knows how to do it.
He was great. Helpful and fun.
DJ Spike was awesome! He did a great job of mixing dancing and karaoke. We were very pleased. :-)
I have been a wedding and radio D.J. and I know how difficult it is, between the technical aspects (setting up, working equipment, venue challenges, proper volume, it goes on and on) and then trying to pick the music that will please the greatest number of guests while alienating the least (much harder than you'd expect - play "Macarena" for example, and some will cheer and dance, and others will roll their eyes and leave). I have witnessed many festive evenings made great or totally ruined by the D.J. over the years. The first time I was at an event where Brain Monkeys Media was the entertainment, I was impressed at the performance and professionalism, and I remembered the unusual name. I've now been to several events they have provided music for, and my respect keeps growing. This D.J. service is as good as they get - reliable, appropriate and fun. Thanks for all the great times, and party on, Brain Monkey Media!
I've seen this man work for years at local events. Everything about him is the quintessential professional. You know exactly what you're paying for, and he goes above and beyond all expectations.
Spike DJed our wedding a year and a half ago and did an amazing job. Funny, courteous, responsive, got everyone dancing and having a good time, from the professional dancers in the crowd to my four-year-old nephew. Great ability to read the crowd and keep the energy going!
We hired DJ Spike as our sound technician for our wedding ceremony and master of music for our reception and he was flawless. Top notch professionalism, precise execution and I will be recommending his services to others!
I am part of a bi-annual event that has evening entertainment where we need a DJ. Once we had Spike, there was no other choice. He's professional, funny and most of all, keeps everyone moving to his beat. His music becomes the heartbeat of the room.
My partner and I hired Brain Monkeys Media last July to provide sound production and DJ services for a three-day educational convention hosted in Madison, WI.
Spike came highly recommended by a few other event producers I know, and if seen him as an event emcee and DJ at other events across the Midwest, so I knew we were in good hands.
We discussed conference needs in person and via email before the event, and Spike had no problem providing the things we were asking for, as well as suggesting a few things we'd forgotten about! He then helped us put together a playlist for our evening events that would match well with the atmosphere we were trying to create, which went over really well with our attendees.
Overall, he was friendly, professional, reasonably-priced, and had no issue occasionally adjusting on the fly when the situation warranted it. I'd recommend him for anyone looking for an event emcee, DJ, or karaoke host!
I've been booking Spike for my event, Sabbat de Sade for almost a year. He plays a great mix that always fits the energy of the room. He's friendly with the crowd and helps with keeping the party feeling good.
What's been most excellent is his accommodations for audio setup. He's got everything necessary for different levels of production. If I need a wireless microphone, he sets up any PA system necessary.
I'm utterly pleased with my choice to bring him on to my crew! He's an all around wonderful person. Always shows up, on time, with great personality.
DJ Spike was hired to provide the amplified sound, music, and karaoke for my and my husband's wedding and reception. He did a wonderful job from start to finish, even when presented with venue-related challenges. He remained calm, professional, and in control. The guests had a wonderful time and I was very happy with the service provided. Highly recommended!
We used Spike for a large private party for two nights. He asked if we had a play list, or suggestions for songs. We really didn't, we just gave him an idea of the feel we wanted. He did a great job of delivering what we couldn't describe. Then, partway through, we gave him more direction, and he adapted to our request and nailed it. We will use him again. For sure!

What to Expect
Our professional DJ shows up your venue an hour before the show is set to begin, sets up and sound checks all equipment, then prepares for the show by mingling with your guests. For karaoke, we sanitize the microphone before handing to another singer and we keep the playlist fair so that all singers get a turn.
