Unions: American DJ Association
I am a proud member of the American DJ Association and personally have been operating a DJ business for over 17 years with many personal and professional references. DJ-ing weddings is my specialty. In fact, I have recently been awarded the Couples Choice Award (formerly the Bride's Choice Award) from (link hidden). I am committed to offering outstanding DJ services throughout the Capital Region, so offering a professional and personal service is my main priority. As a professional, I do many functions throughout the year and I work closely with countless venues across Upstate New York.
Ever thought about having recorded music playing as you walk down the aisle? Imagine walking down the aisle to that timeless processional song that means something to your relationship. Also imagine leaving the ceremony to another piece of carefully chosen recessional music to walk back up the aisle? I can be available to attend your wedding ceremony whether it be indoor or outdoor, a church or civil ceremony. I will provide a PA Speakers, wireless microphones and the music you wish to play.
I am available to attend your wedding Cocktail Hour and supply a small, clean, discreet, and tidy PA for background music. If your cocktail hour is in
a separate location from your reception, that is not a problem! I have multiple set-ups, so I can have music playing in two separate simultaneously.
I will cater the music personally to you and your guests. If you have a mixed age group then I will play a bit of everything. I enjoy reading the crowd and getting a feel for what you and your guests enjoy dancing to, based upon how active the dance floor is throughout the night. Upon booking your event, you will receive a unique "Flow Chart" which will allow you and your fiancé to outline a time frame of events, list the names of those in your bridal party, list song selections for your First, Father/Daughter, Mother/Son Dances, Bouquet toss, Garter toss, Cake Cutting, Dinner and Cocktail music. The Flow Chart will also allow you to specify what type of music you enjoy and what music you don't enjoy. Take your time with the flow chart as this will help me gauge the flow of your event and make sure that everything runs smooth. Also keep in mind that quite often your other vendors (photographer, caterer, and venue) will use this flow chart as well. Receptions start at $595 and range upwards of $1495 depending on your exact needs and time requirements.
I always ask the Bride & Groom (to be) for their song choices for the First dance, Father and Daughter dance, Mother and Son, Bouquet Toss, Garter toss, Cake Cutting etc. I am completely open to taking requests from your guests and bridal party. If I do not have a particular song that you are looking for, I will find and purchase the music prior to your event.
I always offer a FREE face to face consultation at the time of your booking, and again around 2-4 weeks before the event, if required. I prefer to meet either at your venue (if within 20 miles of Albany), a coffee shop or even a quiet location in one of our local malls, as I like to get to know the future Bride & Groom and get to find out exactly what you want and how you want it presented. For example, do you want a grand entrance or a quiet one? Is the Bride going to throw her bouquet of flowers or is she going to present them to someone special? Are there any presentations or speeches? Is it anyone's birthday or anniversary? Etc. I can also discuss where we can place lighting.

All my equipment carries a P.A.T. certificate and I do have full liability insurance. Both of these are a legal requirements and some venues will NOT allow any entertainer to operate if the entertainer cannot produce such certificates. These certificates can be sent directly to the venue via e-mail if required.
Dress standards are a high priority to me, so I always dress appropriately for your event. For most events, I will arrive in dress pants, a collared button down shirt with a tie and polished shoes.
It takes a true professional to understand the art and ability to read the crowd and keep your guests engaged and on the dance floor all night long. My vast knowledge of music and library of over 200,000 songs of all genres is what sets me apart. My equipment is top of the line and is well maintained. You will not see any messy wiring or thoughtless placement of equipment that could possibly cause hazardous conditions such as tripping on a wire or toppling speakers. I come fully insured to protect from any unforeseen circumstances that may arise.
I will arrive at your venue an hour and a half ahead of time to set everything up and run any troubleshooting and / or sound checks at no additional
cost. In the extreme rare case that I am unable to make your event due to personal or family emergency, I do have a few select professional DJ's from the area that I work very closely with who would be more than willing to sub for me at no additional cost to you.
Included in your package, as your DJ, I will also provide any MC (announcing) services that your event may need. I will be the one to introduce your bridal party, announce the formalities of the night including your first dance, parent dances, bouquet, garter and cake cutting announcements, etc.
Equipment is important, so I use a top of the line BOSE sound system and a nice light show. I have recently invested over $10,000 in upgrading my Pro Audio and Lighting setup so you know that you are getting the best bang for your buck. All equipment also has a backup just in case of any unforeseen circumstances

Michael Napoli / DJ Mike Napoli (A.k.a Waxtrilliquist), operator of Soundformula Entertainment is a small mobile DJ business based out of Albany, NY. Since my earlier youth, I have always had an extreme love and have been completely enthralled by a very wide variety of music. I enjoy seeing the way that the right selection of music can create a magical moment frozen in time or one memorable night shared with the ones you love most.
Starting out as a party DJ back in 1997, I got my foot in the door while doing small block parties and benefit functions, moving forward solely by word of mouth. Meanwhile, I had been actively involved in a few local bands with diverse styles such as "Elements of Disaster" and "Triple Threat" which were featured on Jason Keller's "Big Break" radio show on 103.1 FM THE EDGE.
2004, collaborations with DJ Hybrid and DJ PZ introduced Mike to a tri-weekly gig at Lark Tavern (Albany, NY) and BR Finleys formerly known as Positively 4th St. (Troy, NY) spinning old skool hiphop / triphop music while being introduced to DJ "White Lotus" and many other local DJ's.
In 2005, I began competing and show casing my compositional skills at various DJ competitions and conventions. Noteably in 2005, I was able to compete in the Guitar Center Spin-off and placed 1st in the preliminarys, second in the finals. Later in the year, I became affiliated with Globalscene Entertainment ((link hidden)) and competed in their DJ showcase which was held at The Forum performing arts center in Lake George, NY for their RMP / Americade Car show. With the help of good friend Kevin and Vance (promoters of Global Scene Artists), I was able to pick up my first, yet temporary DJ residency at Mad River Pub (formerly located on S. Pearl Street in Albany, NY).
Throughout my college years, I was able to promote myself across the 3 major local universitys and pick up several gigs DJ'n at private house partys and meeting new people who in return made referrals to their friends. After graduation from a local university, I was invited to perform at Lotus night club in Honolulu, Hawaii by a long time friend.
In 2007, I chose to widen my horizons and further develop my small business by DJ'n weddings and other formal events. For the past seven years, I have performed at over 150 wedding and promotional events while being awarded for outstanding performances by Weddingwire, The Knot, WeDJ and N.A.M.E (National Association of Music Entertainers).
I look forward to hearing from you and making your next event one to remember.
All events are considered tentative until the required signed contract and 20% deposit are received.
No event is the same and therefor, no setlist / playlist should be the same either. As a veteran DJ of over 17 years, I am very knowledgeable with music trends and how to read the crowd. My music library is constantly updated weekly with all the newest music and we always carry our extensive archive of over 200,000 songs spanning all genres from the 20's to todays newest hits. Of course my clients are always more than welcome to create their own playlists or contribute their own suggestions. As always, I welcome all guest requests on the spot as well!
For indoor events, we only require 2 dedicated 3-prong electrical outlets. Outdoor events require 2 dedicated 3-prong electrical outlets and protection / shelter from the outside elements (inclement weather).
