Prince and Michael Jackson fans go toe-to-toe on the dance floor as dj’s mix album cuts, remixes, rare tracks and hits from the two artists as well as cuts by such ancillary acts as Sheila E., The Jackson 5, The Time and Janet Jackson. The music is far from the only thing happening at this party, there's theme dancing, a face-off between guests repping The Purple One or The King of Pop, and much, much more.
This is the perfect night out to lounge with your friends, make some new friends, get your drink on, dance your @ss off and have the time of your life.
Collectively, Prince and Michael Jackson helped define the early-'80s era of MTV, revolutionized both R&B and popular music, and influenced thousands of musicians worldwide. The Prince vs Michael Experience is meant to celebrate the music of two of the biggest pop cultural icons of our generation. It is done with love and mutual respect for both artists.

We have sold out venues with capacities of 200 up to 600 people. As far as compensation you could pay us a flat rate or we can take the door, or combo of guarantee & percent of the door. Make us an offer. We book and pay for our own travel & lodging and spend money out of our own pocket on targeted Facebook and Google ads. We want to make sure our events are successful for everyone involved. We want the bar to make money - most dj's think they're in the music business, we understand we're in the alcohol sales business.
"For NINE years now, Dave Paul (proprietor of hip-hop label Bomb Records) has hosted and DJ'ed at the brilliant "Prince vs. Michael Jackson" parties. As selections of hits, rarities, and remixes from both artists are presented over the course of the evening, audience members square off in funky battle, holding signs bearing the mug of their favored entertainer to judge which one is the true king of pop. This sure ain't the place for cynics, but Darling Nikki’s and Dirty Diana’s are all welcome to participate." - SF WEEKLY
