Mike Forrest has had a passion for music for as long as he can remember – from his time in the band playing Saxophone, to playing drums in a garage band. Unfortunately, his dream of rock stardom did not come to pass. However, he did not let his lack of musicianship stop him from a career of music. Mike would help his brother DJ the campus clubs, loving the way the music influenced the dancefloor. From that moment on he (like all of the D&M DJs!) was hooked.
Mike has been an on-air personality for country, top-40, throwback, and oldies radio stations. As part of this career, he’s worked in Austin, Oklahoma City and Columbus while on the air for WQEL 92.3, 101.9 the Twister, KKNG King Country, Star 107.9 and Oldies 108. Mike says he will never be able to describe the euphoria of walking onstage as part of introducing national touring artists for the radio stations. But as proud as he is of those moments, they almost pale in comparison to the joy of helping someone through their day by just playing a song or saying something that made them smile.
After his decision to leave the radio industry, Mike shifted back to performing at weddings, corporate parties, clubs, and dances. With so many experiences throughout his music career, Mike would love to share his love for all music with you and be that soundtrack to your most important, special, memorable days and events.
So if you’re looking for an entertainer that can cover all styles of music with a little extra flair, Mike Forrest might be the choice for you!
