MICHAEL GRIMM – DJ MIKE
DJ Mike was born and raised in Lancaster, PA. His love for music runs as deep as he can remember, which is why being a DJ is one of his main passions. He first got the taste of being a DJ when he was a member of the FM97 Road Crew. During their Friday Night Club 9-6-9 events, he would be the house DJ for most of the evening. After his journey with FM97, he wondered where his next move would take him. His friend’s Aunt was getting married and gave him an opportunity to DJ her wedding. After this event, he never looked back. He truly loves the feeling of helping make his client’s events special and memorable. Whether it be a wedding, birthday party or private event, you might find him on the dance floor encouraging people to join in on the Cha Cha Slide, Cupid Shuffle and many more dances. DJ Mike is proud to be a founding member of 30 West Entertainment and very happy to have three reliable and enthusiastic business partners that love to take their events to the next level.
