Michael was born into music with a professional singer/drummer as a father. Since childhood, Mike’s parents motivated him to learn a wide variety of instruments ranging from the drums to the cello. In his youth, music took a back seat for a short time period to sports which ended a lot of his aspirations to play these instruments. When Michael finally “came to his senses”, he traded in his cleats in for a new form of instrument, DJ equipment, and hasn’t looked back since.
Mike was hooked and initially DJed events for friends and family members. During college, he spent almost all of his free time buying records, downloading songs, and practicing mixing techniques. In the summer of 2013, he relocated to Charleston, where due to the energetic culture of the city and its beaches, decided he would begin to DJ professionally. Since then Mike has been DJing non-stop in his spare time when he is not teaching a middle school English.
Michael has performed at a variety of events over his year professional career that have given him a range of experiences and skills so that he can adapt to any event and crowd. Mike adds – “There is nothing more rewarding than being given the opportunity to create the real life soundtrack for a client’s big day. I love knowing that down the road they will hear one of the songs I played and smile, because it brings them right back to that special moment!”

My goal was to find someone who knew how to throw a bunch of different music styles together seamlessly, Mike did that and more! He kept the dance floor packed at all times. So many people were saying that we knew how to party. If you’re looking for affordable but still great quality, you can’t go wrong with Bunn DJ Company and Mike!
Bunn DJ Company is definitely the way to go for your music. I truly cannot express how amazing of a job they did. Our DJ, Mike Marsico is a musical genious. He played all the right songs and knew exactly when to play them. He did not do any cheesy mic announcements and truly knew the best way to please the crowd. I have had wedding guests tell me that he made the night extra amazing! He was a big part in making the night everything I could have imagined!
This was the absolute best choice we made for our wedding on Nov. 12th, 2018. Mike M absolutely killed it as our DJ, and EVERYONE was on the dance floor the entire night. We love to dance, so music was most important to us, and he did an amazing job throwing the best party with just the vibe we were going for. On top of that, both Mike and Bunn DJ were great to work with from start to end. Kind, organized, flexible- not the case with all vendors so that was refreshing. An absolute joy to work with- THANK YOU for helping us make the best day of our lives!!
Our DJ Mike Marsico did an outstanding job for our Wedding at Old Wide Awake Plantation. He played all the songs we listed on the online portal, mixed our special requests, and did a great job at it. He was also reliable at communication which is something I found is not always the case in this industry. He set up video conferences with us to answer all of our questions and make sure we were all on the same page. Overall 5 stars as Mike did great at special announcements and organizing the music playlist for the reception. If I were to do it all over again I unquestionably would hire Mike with Bunn DJ Company. I definitely recommend this company!
Bunn DJ was a breeze to work with for our wedding. Their online planners and request system was easy to work, and anytime I had a question, they responded in the same day (every time). Michael Marsico was our specific DJ, and he was a blast! We spoke a few times beforehand so he could get an idea of our music tastes and the tone we wanted for the event. He was polite, enthusiastic, and flexible through the whole process. He was a wonderful emcee, and when it was time to dance, he read the crowd very well. We had many compliments on the music and flow of the reception. Bunn DJ was so easy and stress-free to work with. They’d be a great choice for any bride or event planner!
Mike Marsico is hands down the best DJ in Charleston – maybe even the world! Going with Bunn was one of the best experiences we had our whole wedding. It was actually the easiest decision of the entire planning process. Leading up to the event, it was great working with Mike. We had a couple calls just to discuss the flow of the evening and what I wanted. As for the actual event, it was literally perfect in every sense. Mike does such a great job at being involved but not overbearing. He totally gets that its your wedding and he’s there to make it a great party. We got the photo booth option, highly recommend the photo booth as its not cheesy and everyone loved the pictures so much! I expected people to talk about how great the food was or what a beautiful day it was. But nope – all anyone was talking about was how great the DJ was! It was such a great party and that is 100% thanks to Mike! Go with Bunn – it will be the best decision you make!
We held our annual meeting in Charleston and on the last day held a networking reception for the staff. The event planning site was easy to use and gives the DJ a sense of what the crowd enjoys. Michael was professional, yet down to earth and really had staff swaying to the music. During the award announcements, Michael even added various sound bites of congratulations as the names were announced. All in all, I highly recommend Bunn DJ (especially Michael) for any event.
Mike was exactly what we were hoping for with a DJ. He played all the music we requested, and made sure that his own additions fit in well with our taste. The song transitions and arrangements were perfect. Their packages are great deals. Mike perfectly tailored his work to our requests. We would definitely recommend Bunn DJ.
