DJ Baldy Mick (Michael O’Donovan)
On this weeks episode of The Wedding Band Show I talked to Michael O’Donovan about his Wedding Disco business ‘DJ Baldy Mick’ and his video production company The Video Guys
Mick starts the conversation by reminding us that he’s an award-winning Wedding DJ :)
His main occupations are as a Wedding Videographer and a Wedding DJ but he also dabbles in some wedding photography as a hobby. His DJ career started around 1991 and in 2003 when he returned from honeymoon he bought the videography business from the guy that shot his own wedding video!
The Video Guys
Michaels video production company is called The Video Guys and is based in Sligo. He travels all over Ireland and loves to take work in his home town of Cork when possible. The Video Guys shoot Weddings and also work on commercial projects. Mick’s vlogging has taken a back seat lately as the editing is very time-consuming!
When it comes to wedding videos, The Video Guy’s most popular option is their ‘All Day Package’ which includes everything from the bridal prep up until about 11 pm.
Michael suggests that doing a wedding disco is easier than shooting the wedding video because of the amount of editing that needs to be completed after the wedding day. There is also more stress for a videographer on the day of a wedding dealing with different lighting situations, complex audio requirements, etc.
A top tip from The Video Guys would be to plan your wedding timeline with precision similar to that of a military attack! Use a bridesmaid to keep an eye on the time and to communicate any delays with the wedding suppliers.
DJ Baldy Mick
For Michael being a DJ is more of a passion than a job. When it comes to weddings he loves to see the hope in young couples on their big day.
His disco set depends on the crowd but usually, it’s a mix of the ’80s and ‘90s dance music. Sometimes he starts a wedding disco with a slow song to give the wedding guests a break after the band.
Baldy Mick is now offering a ‘Day After’ package and it will be launched at The Oceans Sands Hotel Wedding Expo. It consists of regular disco music, party games and a smartphone speed quiz which is tailor-made to suit every wedding.
