"Michael was amazing!! We were blown away by how much he cared to find out what vibe we were going for and how he followed through with that. You'll quickly see how talented he is, if you have him play anything acoustic and sing! He played guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour, then switched modes to DJ for dinner and reception. I should also mention, each one of those 4 parts of the wedding (ceremony, cocktail, dinner, reception) were in 4 different places! He set up in all 4!!! Before the wedding, we had appointments with Michael over Skype to hear what songs he could do. I had a special request for my walk down the aisle, and he took the time to send me a separate recording of how he arranged it. Top notch service! During the reception, we had a rowdy crowd that danced the night away. He was great at judging what to play next to keep the party going...so much so that the crowd was chanting "One more song!" over and over and over. It was truly awesome. Besides the music, Tracey was great working with us for the uplights, and photo booth. Our photo booth was staffed the whole time (they were also awesome) and people LOVED it. It was really more than we could've asked for and Still Listening Productions made it very special and memorable. Huge thanks to them!" - Amy and Brian, Married 7/10/2015
"We couldn't have chosen a better musician/DJ for our wedding... Period. Not only do we personally feel that Michael did an incredible job ... Our guests couldn't stop mentioning him! Not just days, but weeks after our wedding friends and family would mention how "amazing our wedding was, especially the music guy... He was ridiculously good!" To say Michael Tiernan is ridiculously good is an understatement! He could not have been more on point, more personal, more in touch to exactly what was going on... As if he was actually a friend of the family. And the truth is, he felt just like that! He didn't just play music at our wedding... He learned and remixed our first dance song, he played original songs but personalized them to the moment, he referred to everyone by name in such a natural way that our guests literally thought he knew everyone in our wedding party. He is beyond talented when it comes to playing live music and we felt so blessed to have a true artist create the energy of our special day from beginning to end. Michael, thank you so much... From the bottom of our hearts... Thank you! You are so talented! Not only will we always remember our special day and how you made it so magical... We'll keep listening to your music every chance we get! Thanks again and we hope to see you soon! Xx Shane & Dana"
