These DJs are using your private moments as public auditions. Mike does NOT bring observers to private events.

MIKE'S BOOKING POLICY

How Far In Advance Do You Need To Book Mike?

Impossible to say. Why? Since Mike only books one event per day, someone might have just booked your event date while you were reading this. Or it might be available up to your event day.

Therefore...

Mike's Booking Policy

It is The First Person To Supply A Deposit, Books Him policy. Mike does not use the marketing gimmick of saying that you better book now because many people are looking at your date. Even when true, it sounds like a tacky high pressure sales pitch. Mike is honest, doesn't need nor use sales pitches.
