My name is Mike Francis and I have been a Professional DJ for more than 25 years! My career started in the night clubs of Manchester and has since blossomed into a profession that has given me the opportunity to work at numerous high-end venues across the North West. VIP is simply my brand name.

The prestigious Gold Level DJ Mark Award has been the recognition of my efforts through 3 decades and my professional approach to every single party. If I had to sum up my performance in a single phrase that would be “Keep the dancefloor packed”

I use dancefloor classics, build from more downtempo songs early on to hands-in-the-air floorfillers by the end of the night! Above all, I know what works well and I create natural, fun and unforgettable parties!

Many DJs think that their job is to steal the show. Not me. It’s YOUR special night and YOU and your guests are the centre of attention. My approach is 100% “cheese-free” so don’t expect any inappropriate shouting over the mic!

I take great pride in my polished and understated presentation, keeping YOU happy and satisfied! By choosing my services, you can rest assured that there will be no silly props or flashy costumes, no harassing your audience, no “join the dancefloor now” shouts or inappropriate remarks.

My years of experience have taught me to adapt, especially with older crowds, who are more challenging to satisfy. I have great confidence in my music and you can rest assured that all your guests will have a great time!

Large events or small parties - VIP Have LOTS of sound, lighting and venue dressing to suit any budget and create any look.

And if you prefer a reserved and trendy “posh city-club” experience, don’t forget that I’m a highly experienced nightclub DJ too, and I can mix tracks of all genres live on the spot for a unique club-like experience!

Above all, I want to be a part of YOUR special night and make sure that YOU have fun!

DJ Mike Francis :o)


"Mike's likeable and non-intrusive manner makes him stand out from the rest. He has the 'less chat and more music' approach down to a tee, and although he's more expensive than less experienced DJs, his value lies with “ability” and “results” ...not his fee. In this profession, you get exactly what you pay for. DJs who are cheap are cheap for a reason (they usually suck)"

Brilliant night had by all! I really like the fact we could plan our night on the website and choose our own music beforehand. Mike was a top DJ and was professional throughout. I will be recommending VIP DJ to all my friends and also will be using them again for my own events.

Anniversary in Stacksteads, Bacup
Our original venue cancelled our event along with the entertainment they were providing, we found VIP DJ Services last minute and we are so glad we did! Mike Francis was our DJ for the night, he was excellent at reading the crowd, keeping the dance floor going all night long. Included in the price we could choose 30 songs which was plenty, he scattered them...

Birthday Party in Parkfield Road, Grasscroft, Oldham OL4 4JG
We told Mike what we wanted - a 5-Star 50th birthday party in our garden - and we told him about our ideas. He then took charge (in the nicest and most professional way) and told us what we were going to get! We have great friends, a super family and fantastic neighbours, but in hindsight, we needed Mike. He was superb and even tackled the last-minute adverse weather!

The DJ was excellent, perfect for the event as there was a mix of all ages, therefore a mix of music! He was an important part of the night, as he helped gather the groups of people when the food was out, for speeches and to sing happy birthday. It was really appreciated and he made the night reach its full potential!
