We hired DJ Misha along with live sax player for our company Holiday Party and were beyond impressed with the great duo! Misha was very dependable, responsive, and accommodating. They catered to the crowd, event, and made the party! Very very talented!

What does a DJ do?
There are two responsibilities at the core of DJ’ing. The first is to be a curator of excellent music that captivates specific audiences. The second is to program and mix music seamlessly to create the perfect DJ set or live performance that captures the crowd’s energy and attention for the entire night. The ultimate goal is to keep people having fun while dancing and ensure that the party never gets boring.
Some key components of DJing include:
- Selecting which records to play and in what order to create a “set” with an essence that is bigger than the sum of its parts.
- Developing a musical ear and memory to understand the structure of each song, allowing the DJ to select tunes that are in key and complimentary so two tracks can be merged with a sense of rhythm.
- Understanding the technical uses of all equipment involved, such as turntables, mixers and amplifiers, to bring out the power and danceability of a song through fine-tuning and accentuation of the record’s dynamics.
- Possessing a hunger for discovering, collecting and curating new and unique music — a borderline obsession over their music collection.
- Generating a cohesive music atmosphere between the DJ and the audience. In most cases, this means making people dance the night away.
- Distinguishing the nuances of power and feeling in music — being aware of the complex emotions that a song may inspire while understanding how style and tempo will impact the room.
- A sense of emotional improvisation, key to any DJ’s live performance. Music is a hotline to people’s emotions — a DJ must use this force constructively to generate the peak experience.
- Communicating with the audience by responding to the feelings of the room and using music to accentuate them.
What You Can Expect from a Live Saxophone Player and DJ Misha
A performance from DJ Misha reaches the next level when a live saxophone player is added into the mix. While DJ Misha plays a continuous mix of dance music that flows seamlessly from one song to the next, adding in a saxophone player brings a live element to the performance that allows the crowd to fully embrace the vibe and get lost in the music.
Thrilling DJ and saxophone performances from DJ Misha feature skilled musicians playing along with songs the DJ spins, highlighting melodies and improvising solos to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience that leaves your event with nothing short of unforgettable excitement.
The structure of electronic dance music creates the perfect backdrop for talented musicians to let their creativity flow. Imagine the saxophone player peppering a song with a brand-new melody during the breakdown, bringing the note up high as the bass drops down low — and the crowd goes wild.
Creativity and improvisation are what make a live saxophone player and a DJ a limitless combination.
We hired DJ Misha and his saxophone playing partner for our company Holiday Party in December and I have never gotten so much positive feedback from all who attended. They were the perfect combination of live music and DJ songs and kept the dance floor full the entire night! I would recommend them for any party or event.

Each party is unique, and in order to accommodate, we begin with a discussion about your personal taste in music, the vision you have for your event and some general details about your guests. From there DJ Misha will craft a DJ set and performance specifically for your event — after all, that is what a good DJ does best.

Included in any booking is the opportunity to discuss the vision you have for your event and your favorite genres, artists and even songs so Misha can create the perfect set that perfectly matches the night’s vibe.
However, when in the middle of a live performance and “in the mix” it can be quite distracting for the DJ to talk to and take specific song requests from guests. For this reason DJ Misha encourages early communication about your musical vision – that way you and your guests can relax and fully enjoy the show.
