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 junior in High School (Crest Senior High, Shelby), he got his first job as a DJ at Kate’s Skating Rink. 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 a lot of fun with it.
After High School Mitch continued to work at the Skating Rink & he also 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. Soon after that, Mitch enrolled into the Broadcasting program at Cleveland Community College, in Shelby.
