djmikelive_logo_glowDJ Mike Live is a Night Life Personality and Well Respected DJ & Emcee in and around the city of Philadelphia! Formally Know as “Yessir” Mike has Taken a New approach on his Entertainment career and he is more dedicated to the art of performance rather then the image and popularity that can be established with some levels of this lifestyle. DJ Mike Live can tackle any walk of life with his ability to play and his knowledge of all genres of music. There is No Event to Big or Party To small that he is not willing to take on and provide his crowed with the best entertainment possible! DJ Mike Live is making a new impact on the Bar scene in the heart of North East Philadelphia, trying to Bring some Life back to the environments he, along with a few others are Responsible for Changing. Back in the Mid to late 2000’s DJ Mike Live was Part of a group of DJ’s, Bartenders and Promoters that took there success from there down town club experience and brought it to North East Philly where they Respectfully took your average Bar, Tavern or Restaurant and turned them in to what felt like a Down Town Night Club, it set the bar for the great party experiences brought to you today by your favorite establishments. DJ Mike Live is unlike most DJ’s you may encounter, He is all personality, very out going and likes to make your experience one to remember. Using Serato Scratch Live with CD Turn Tables and Tech 12’s, running a PC and Mac Laptop’s and never with out a Microphone, DJ Mike Live takes the energy of his crowed and puts it right back in to his set times 10! What sets me apart from any other DJ? “Well, each person is there own person and everyone has there own style and i respect everyone who puts effort in to doing what they love, i feel I’m different from others because i read my crowed well and i like to make things fun, yes I’m that DJ that will have a packed dance floor at 1am and play Girls Just Want To Have Fun or Like a Prayer, it makes things interesting. I also feel what sets me apart is that I’m always willing to learn from and collaborate with others, i never feel there is something i cant do and that your responsible for limiting your own abilities by not reaching out and trying new things.” So the question everyone wants to know, Why The Name Change? “Just time for a change “Yessir” will always be a part of me and it will stay attached to me in the future, it defined me for the past 9 years, But its time to get down to business and take a new approach on things, its a move for the better! There is a lot of good memories associated with yessir, its time to move forward, but i will never forget what i accomplished under that name and all the people who supported Yessir over the years, Just hope to continue to earn the respect and support of them on this New journey along with the support of many new faces.” DJ Mike Live, Who are you inspired by? I get alot of my inspiration from My Dad, growing up with the parents i have was a great experience, My Dad is a Big Funk/ disco/ ol’skool kind of guy and growing up on the sounds of artist such as George Clinton, Cameo, Prince, Kurtis Blow, Earth Wind and Fire, To the Bobby Brown, New Edition, Madonna and Michael, along with so many more, it was just always good music, also having a lot of older cousins who put me on to Slick Rick, LL Cool J and many more from the Hip Hop side of things and of course The FreeStyle Club Music, I can go hour’s spinning songs from Stevie B, Lisa Lisa, and all the legends of that movement. I really like the styles of DJ’s Like DJ Touch Tone, Jay Ski and Doc B, and There are a number of Local DJ’s that i could sit around and listen to for days, inspiration is never enough! Currently I DJ Wed nights and Saturday Nights at The Sheffield Tavern, Wed being a “In The Mix of All The Hit’s” type of Night and Saturdays are more of a Back in the Day Dance Party with a twist of the Hits, Fridays I DJ Joey O’s After hours and I’m working on a few new things that should be coming real soon. On My Spare time I also Bartend and Do Free Lance Graphic Design work, I received My associates degree in Multimedia and Design back in 2008, I’m a softball junkie, i Play on a number of teams from spring to fall, Shoot 9ball and also play hockey and  i coach and do volunteer work at The Holmesburg Boys Club. Leaving behind alot, Mike Live Has given his all to going from YESSIR to DJ Mike Live and hoping for a bigger success and greater Respect from Old and New supporters!
