Prawl and Bowens began their DJ company in 2010.

Mike Bowens and Adrian Prawl combined their  love for music with an entrepreniual touch.

Bowens, sophomore business major and Prawl, junior psychology major started a DJ company in 2010.

They hosted the lacrosse dance during the 2011 spring semester which reported record turnout.

“We both had a love for music and played drums,” Prawl said.

Bowens and Prawl have been friends for a  year. They met in late September of 2010 through mutual friends and have remained good friends since then.

Bowens’ uncle is a DJ and introduced him to the software used to DJ. His uncle passed along the information and taught Bowens how to use the software.

In order to DJ, Bowens and Prawl each use a laptop computer and a Numark mix-track turn table. This turn table allows them to scratch songs, make beats and use different effects while the music is playing.

“This was a great piece of equipment to invest in,” Bowens said. “It allows people have the best experience at any event or party they attend.”

Bowens and Prawl DJ at parties and several events around campus including dances, the BSU splash party, steppers events and the Body Image Coalition fashion show.

Bowens and Prawl have yet to come up with a name for their company but they call themselves “DJ Money Mike and DJ Bird.”

Students around campus who have attended the parties and events gave their input.

Colleen Stewart, sophomore exercise science major has attended events around campus where they have Djed.

“They play the best hip hop songs and all the fun music,” said Stewart

Erin McLaughlin, sophomore education major has attended house parties where they have Djed.

“The music is on point. It is so easy to dance to,” Mclaughlin said.

Some students who do not attend the parties or events know both of the young DJ’s because of how known their Djing is.

“Mike just seems like a born DJ,” Abiu Santos, junior accounting major, said.

These are two talented up-and- coming young DJ’s looking to do any on and off campus events.
