Mike Walter is the proud owner of Elite Entertainment, a multi-system DJ company in New Jersey that was recently selected by both and as a top entertainment company in the country. What Mike is most proud of is that his own company exemplifies the message he has been preaching to the DJ Industry for years: There IS a way to combine Quality and Quantity.

Mike’s DJing career began in his hometown of Queens, New York in 1984. He is a graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting and has a communications degree from Union County College. Mike worked with Star DJs from 1988 to 1993, where he helped to develop a staff of over 50 by training new recruits and handling an increasingly complex schedule. In early 1993, Mike became a partner in a much smaller mobile DJ company, Elite Entertainment. His ability to replicate his high standards of MCing and DJing in the Elite staff had an immediate impact. Mike bought out his partner in 1998, and Elite Entertainment has continued growing (20 MCs, 1000+ annual events) and setting the standard for excellence in New Jersey and beyond.

Most recently, Mike has partnered with seminar speaker and Mobile Beat writer Joe Bunn to create The PhDJ Workshop (, a comprehensive DJ training program aimed at performers looking to attain the highest level of excellence. The workshop has been offered in conjuction with MBLV (for a separate fee) and has generated a popular podcast featuring Mike and Joe.
