Mike’s vision of Extreme Music Productions LLC started in a math class while still in high school. It finally came to life in early 2002. He had been working and training with multiple high-end DJ companies in NYC, Westchester, and Long Island. Mike worked meticulously to learn the ins and outs of the ever-changing entertainment business. He had a vision to bring the same quality high-end events to customers for a more affordable price. Extreme Music Productions took off and the rest is history. Mike quickly became one of the areas most in-demand master of ceremonies for private and corporate functions.
Mike and his team at EMP have been trusted to entertain some of the world’s biggest brands. Recognizable names such as Pepsi, Hilton, Verizon, Conair, and Girl Scouts just to name a few. His number one goal is to make sure your guests enjoy every moment of the event. Unlike many other MCs for hire, Mike has a unique presence at your party without making himself the center of attention. In 2011, Mike was recognized by 914 Inc. as a Westchester Wunderkind, a top business professional under the age of 30. In addition to EMP, Mike was a DJ on the legendary 95.5 WPLJ. Until its sale in May 2019, he was part of the programming team at PLJ and at NASH FM 94.7. He can now be heard on WNEW (NEW 102.7). Mike's go-to line is “If music didn’t exist, I would be unemployed…It’s all I know.”
He is EXTREMELY proud of what EMP has become, but he is even more proud of the family he gets to go home to each night. When not at the areas hottest events, concerts, or at the radio station, Mike loves nothing more than spending time with his wife Michelle, son Hudson, and daughter Averie.
Joe has been a fixture in the private events industry for 20 years. He started as an event assistant at just 13 years old and has learned every aspect of the business from the ground up. Coming from a family of entertainers, Joe entered the DJ world with a very strong interest in music and a natural passion for entertaining. He worked under and was trained by some of the top DJs in the industry. By the time he was able to drive, Joe had already begun working events on his own, and music quickly became the driving force in his life.
Through the years, Joe has become one of the most sought-after DJs/MCs in the Tri-State. His charismatic personality, devotion to his clients, and true love for entertaining has placed him in tremendously high demand. But most importantly, his encyclopedic knowledge of all music genres combined with his unmatched ability to read a crowd will captivate your guests and make your event as unique and memorable as it deserves to be.
For anyone who has experienced Frankie (AKA Frankie III) perform in person, they’d agree that he’s a bit of a prodigy in this business. With just a few years of experience, Frankie has taken to the entertainment world quicker than most. He comes from a strong lineage of singers and performers. His grandfather opened for major acts including The Beach Boys and his father is a former “Best DJ in Westchester” award-winner.
While the DJ business seemingly comes natural to Frankie, his persistent drive to master his craft is what sets him apart. His love for all music combined with his passion to perform in front of a live crowd is truly contagious and it brings an energy to your event that simply can’t be described. While the future is undoubtedly bright for Frankie III, he’s already an elite, highly sought-after performer and we’re beyond excited to have him on board as the future of EMP.
