Mike is your DJ, not a surprise trainee or subcontracted fill-in.

Mike is middle-aged with lots of wedding DJ experience. He is not a kid still learning or a weekend basement DJ. Mike is the real deal.

At weddings, he appropriately refers to himself only as Michael or Mike in order to show respect for the importance of your lifetime moment and to give respect to your family, friends and guests in attendance.
