Mitch Henson – DJ/Emcee/Coordinator
Mitch discovered a deep love for music early on. His father taught him how to play the guitar when he was very young, which really helped to accelerate his exploration into different genres of music.
At age 16, When Mitch was a jr. in High School, he got his first job as a DJ. That’s when he fell in love with live entertainment. He got a rush from performing in front of a large audience and he was good at it. People seemed to enjoy and respond to his style of entertaining and he had lots of fun with it.
After High School Mitch formed a band with some friends. He played local shows (Clubs, Bars, & Parties). The band stayed together for about 4 years. After the band members went there separate ways, his mother challenged him to pursue a career in the entertainment field.

“Mitch was AWESOME! I think we were all impressed with how the evening went. He was excellent and exactly what we needed to change up the boring Christmas Party! He mentioned doing a dance off for one of our give-aways. Best idea ever! Everyone loved it and we hope to have you again next year!

“Mitch played music the students liked, interacted great with the crowd, got everybody up and dancing, participated with the students…he was fantastic. The students even asked if he could do our prom. Mitch really provided a fantastic night for the kids and set us up for success for next year’s dance. Because the students had such a great time, I am hoping they will spread the word and we will even have more students next year. !”
