Meet Craig Mivshek owner of Grand DJ Entertainment

Thank you for your interest in Grand DJ Entertainment!

My name is Craig Mivshek and I’m a multi-talented leader in marketing, planning, and performance with a passion to fully capture the vision and personal taste of each client.

At the age of 14, I began working a part-time job at Grand Bowling Lanes in Waukegan, IL. During this time, I quickly gained the knowledge of working with the public and gained the knowledge of running a successful business.

Music has always been a part of my life and wanted to take it further by becoming an entertainer… And did just that at the age of 19 working various clubs, weddings, and parties. It was a very busy time of working, enjoying life, and finishing college with a degree in Marketing and Business.

20 years later… My vision continues and enjoy every single minute of it.

In the honor of Grand Bowling Lanes where it all started, I bring you Grand DJ Entertainment!

Craig Mivshek
