About Hawaii DJ Troy Michael
Troy began DJing in the early 90s working for Hawaii DJ Companies & Nightclubs. This provided Troy the opportunity to perfect his DJ skills and play a variety of music for guest from all over the world. In 1999 Troy relocated to San Francisco working as a freelance Nightclub & Wedding DJ performing at some of the most exclusive Bay Area Events.
In 2001 Troy returned to Hawaii starting his own DJ service specializing in weddings. Troy has become a phenomenal success with a strong reputation for the highest level of service. He is often referred by Hawaii best wedding coordinators & has been named Hawaii’s top wedding DJ by both the Knot & the Wedding Wire in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016
Troy’s style can be described as “Fun, Refined, & Contemporary”. He strives to be different & unique. Troy does not play “Gangnam Style”, “YMCA”, or “Electric Slide” type songs commonly played by DJs unless specifically requested. He keeps his dance floor filled by relying on his music knowledge & club style mixing skills to play a more contemporary blend of music.
As an Emcee Troy refrains from being over the top, he does not to tell jokes, long stories, or tries to be the center of attention. Instead he makes introductions & announcements in tasteful, clear & concise manner. Troy does not have a fixed routine & is passionate about making every event unique & special.
Troy believes that the difference between a good wedding & a great wedding is a combination of all the little things. “There is not one single thing you can do to make a reception great. It is the finer smaller elements all coming together that make a great reception.”
Troy’s also believe that there is no need for a wedding DJ to “put on a show”. He feels that energy & emotion existing within the bride & groom & their family & friends. “A skilled DJ will draw out energy & emotion by playing the right music at the right time, saying the right things, & by staging & coordinating the right activities.”
Many DJs make the mistake on focusing just on dance music. Although Troy is known for phenomenally packed dance floors he focuses on the entire reception and will tie all sections of your reception together with the right atmosphere, music and flow.
