LET ME PUT YOUR MIND AT EASE...
My name is Mike Francis and I have been a DJ for more than 25 years! My career started in the night clubs of Manchester and has since blossomed into a profession that has given me the opportunity to work at numerous high-end venues across the North West. VIP Discos is simply my brand name.
The prestigious Gold Level DJ Mark Award has been the recognition of my efforts through 3 decades and my professional approach to every single party. If I had to sum up my performance in a single phrase that would be “Keep the dancefloor packed”
I use dancefloor classics, build from more downtempo songs early on to hands-in-the-air floorfillers by the end of the night! Above all, I know what works well and I create natural, fun and unforgettable parties!
Many DJs think that their job is to steal the show. Not me. It’s YOUR special night and YOU and your guests are the centre of attention. My approach is 100% “cheese-free”, so don’t expect any inappropriate shouting over the mic!
I take great pride in my polished and understated presentation, keeping YOU happy and satisfied! By choosing my services, you can rest assured that there will be no silly props or flashy costumes, no harassing your audience, no “join the dancefloor now” shouts or inappropriate remarks.
My years of experience have taught me to adapt, especially with older crowds, who are more challenging to satisfy. I have great confidence in my music and you can rest assured that all your guests will have a great time!
And if you prefer a reserved and trendy “posh city-club” experience, don’t forget that I’m a highly experienced nightclub DJ too, and I can mix tracks of all genres live on the spot for a unique club-like experience!
Above all, I want to be a part of YOUR special night and make sure that YOU have fun!
