Tozer Wedding-Sarah Colin Wedding HR 3-0266.jpg

Colin and I wanted our wedding celebration to be a fun and memorable experience for all our guests, and so the entertainment for the evening was really important to us. A wedding is a lot of things, but it’s also a great party!

"We knew we wanted a DJ, but were hesitant to book a DJ company because we wanted a more personalized experience. Our wedding planner recommended Michael to us, and we’re so incredibly glad she did.

Michael was professional, personable, extremely helpful, and most importantly he kept the dance floor packed all night long! Michael’s dedication to personalizing our event was exceptional – he met with us before our wedding to get to know us and our wedding party, to review our music preferences, and to discuss what kind of event we wanted.

Not only did Michael keep the dance floor packed, Michael also provided the music for our ceremony and the lighting for our event (at the very last minute!). We also asked Michael to be the MC for the evening, and he kept our guests relaxed and entertained.

Thank you so so much Michael for everything! You made our wedding a memorable and fantastic party that no one will forget!"

“For us, music was going to play a huge role in the wedding. We knew the exact feel and mood we wanted, so we thought it would be difficult to find someone to execute this specific “vision”. This was until we met Michael. 

From our first conversation, we knew he would be the perfect fit. What sets him apart from others is the detail and effort he puts into learning about music likes and dislikes of guests, as well as getting to learn about your bridal party, yourselves, family and friends. We are still having friends tell us how amazing the music was from the moment they stepped into the venue up until they left. It wouldn’t have been the same without him.”

Renata and Aundrae wanted a crazy party and that’s exactly what they got.  Their wedding took place inside the Berkeley Church in Toronto and was designed by the talented Melissa Andre of Melissa Andre Events.  With a mix of house music, classic rock, top 40, hip hop, r&b, reggae, soca, disco and everything in between I was able to curate an event that got everyone up and dancing hard.  The guests all left sweaty and had a fantastic time, as you’ll see in the photos below.

Chapter 5 - 89.5 CIUT “Worldwide”

Paul and I got word that the University of Toronto radio station, 89.5 CIUT was desperate for volunteers.  So, we threw our hat in the ring and started volunteering at the station on St. George.  We started off as receptionists.  I would handle Monday’s, Paul would handle Wednesday’s and our job was to answer the phones and do whatever menial jobs the station staff needed.  We did that for about 6 months, and through that time we got to meet and connect with the station manager, the sales team and most importantly the program director, Mopa Dean.

One Wednesday afternoon, we got word that someone could’t make their show the following Monday morning.  We immediately told Mopa that we could fill in, and he said yes.  So the following Monday, we got there early, carrying our turntables and records up three flights of old creaky stairs, and set-up in the studio.  I was attending Seneca Collage for Radio and TV Production, so I was already comfortable running the board and speaking on the mic, and I knew what to say and when to say it.

Once the show was done, we were extremely happy with how we performed, but we could have never even imagined what happened next.  Mopa Dean stepped through the door and said “that was amazing!  One of the best shows I’ve ever heard!  We’re in the process of changing the the schedule and want to add some more shows, and your one of them.”  

Paul and I were shocked!  We were getting our own show!  It was like a Made for TV Movie; we couldn’t believe! it  About a month later, we where on-air and “Worldwide” was born.
