Music Headliner for 2024 – Official Lions VIP Tailgate DJ Don Mecca

Music Headliner for 2023 - DJ Don Mecca

DJ Don Mecca is one of Detroit’s most renowned Open Format DJs because he possesses a lethal playbook of a variety of genres. To him, music a lifestyle and a state of mind. He has always been inspired by music. From the days of sitting on the porch listening to Hip-Hop, Beatboxing and Free-Styling with childhood friends. This is what really kicked off his love affair with music. As he matured so did his relationship with music. He then began studying the mechanics of how it all came together to make it so euphoric to him. Along the way he discovered his desire to not just hear the music, but to manipulate it. This has forged his illustrious 15 year career as not only a DJ, but a producer as well with releases with LFO Records. There is not a venue in Detroit that hasn’t heard his unique style.
