Mike Small IS music. Ever since he was a young boy, he knew he loved music. And when he says love, he means LOVED music. It has had an effect on him that he sincerely feels was different from anyone else. Mike first began to express his love in the form of singing and dancing. You know that kid with the boombox outside in the neighborhood? That might have been Mike, making sure there was never a moment without rhythmic sounds filling the air.
At age 10, he took his love to the next level and began studying an instrument. The drums became an outlet for Mike to express his creative rhythmic energy. Not long after, at 13 years old, he met his first girlfriend. This only matters because this girlfriend had an older brother who had a pair of turntables… and Mike was hooked. He was now at every school dance – not only to dance but to hang out with the DJ and watch. Going to the skating rink no longer meant to skate, at least not for Mike. He practiced at home for about a year before he had the opportunity to tag along and be mentored by a professional, finally getting some hands-on live crowd experience at a local Youth-2-Youth dance.
From that point at 15 years old, Mike has had the pleasure of DJing school dances, private parties, and in small bars to some of the largest nightclubs in central Ohio. More importantly, has also had the opportunity the share in over 150 couples’ wedding days. He is still the go-to DJ for several area schools, whether it be an elementary sock-hop, homecoming, or formal prom.
Now with over two decades of professional experience behind him, Mike is ready to combine his suggestions with your vision to create the perfect occasion. Mike Small is one of D&M DJ Entertainment’s original entertainers, with nothing but exemplary reviews from the couples he’s worked with!
