If you've never hired a DJ before, you could be in for a shock... hire the wrong guy, and your party WILL be remembered ...for all the wrong reasons.

Not all DJs do the same kinds of things; for instance, some just stand gormless and push buttons, so if you want your DJ to do more, it's essential to choose wisely!

So, what do YOU need?

  1. I need a club-style DJ to play music only with no chat ...Great for young club-goer events, and often dirt cheap.

  2. I need a Mr Motivator to get the crowd going and teach us line dancing ...Entertainers are great for a child's birthday but cheesy party music, blow up guitars and inane banter for several hours can be VERY irritating, to both young and old!

  3. I need the cheapest price ...You're VERY brave!  I see Facebook messages every week "Just been let down by the DJ" which in fact translates to, "my bargain DJ was offered an extra £20 so he took another gig".

  4. I need somebody personable who'll play age-friendly music for all of my guests and have 'some' chat and interaction ...Bingo!

If #4 strikes a chord, allow me to introduce myself!

Among My Clients

Thanks a lot for dropping by!

My name is Mike Francis and I've been a DJ for more than 25 years! My career started in the wedding venues and 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 is simply my company 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 recognisable 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 can create 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 “everybody hands in the air” shouts, no 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 “posh city-club” experience, don’t forget that I’m a highly skilled 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.

5 Star Review: "I’m sorry I didn't see you before you left last night ...Just wanted to say a massive thank you for a fantastic night, you kept the party going constantly with everybody dancing, as you know an empty dancefloor was my biggest fear because there was a lot of older people attending but everybody had a fine old time."
