Mike Staff, Founder and CEO
Born and raised in Royal Oak, Michigan, Mike started his DJ career in 1986 as a small market radio DJ. A few moves around the Midwest and most notably, a 14-year stint at 101 WRIF— Detroit ’s premier rock station, Mike decided to launch Mike Staff Productions in 1996 to save weddings from cheesy, over-the-top, embarrass your guests type of DJs. Mike is still revolutionizing the wedding industry to this day with individualized services focused on the bride and groom’s need and always surpassing expectations in a classy and efficient way.
Since Mike’s been around to see his company’s ups and, well, more ups, he has some unique insight into how things work: “Around here, every interaction is important. There is always something new to learn, an opportunity to serve people better and some better way of getting results.”
Mike’s passion for what he does is infectious (his team calls it the “Staff Infection”). He has attracted a staff of professionals and has built a never-say-die reputation for going above and beyond. Service and execution—they live and breathe this stuff. They’re big thinkers, can doers, and straight shooters. That’s Mike Staff Productions. Where integrity starts at the top and filters through everybody and everything.
