Born in a small town outside of Philadelphia, PA and moving to Florida at an early age, Michael Hannigan currently resides in New Port Richey. Even in his younger years, Michael performed in many stage plays, theatre presentations and musicals. Earning a scholarship at Jimmy Ferraro’s Academy of Performing Arts, he studied voice, dance, acting and piano before his teen years. He quickly landed modeling jobs with Sears and Walmart, along with brochure exposure with Sea World. Continuing his acting career, Michael was casted as an extra in the Tim Burton film, Edward Scissorhands as well as countless leading and supporting roles in local theatre productions such as The Music Man, Aladdin, A Midsummer night’s Dream and The Wizard of Oz to name a few.
At the age of 15, Michael trained to be a professional wrestling and has been seen on TNA, ECW and WCW among many local and northeastern independant promotions. In addition, throughout his teen years, Michael was given the nickname and moniker, Sideshow while playing bass guitar and singing in local rock bands.
At 17, Michael continued to build diversity in his entertainment craft by DJing at local bars and nightclubs for many years before founding Sound By Sideshow, which later became SBS Events.
Starting in 2011 as a side project, Michael began DJing and MCing weddings for friends and acquaintances in which he built a solid rapport with their friends and family members, quickly booking other weddings and events through word of mouth. Later in 2012, Michael invested in the state of the art equipment that he uses to this day, became an Limited Liabilty Corporation, and hence, SBS Events was officially born. Also in 2012, Michael won the Nightmoves Entertainment award for DJ of the year that he was also nominated 5 times for between 2009 & 2015 amongst Tampa Bay’s elite DJs .
In addition to weddings, corporate parties and sweet 16s, Michael aligned himself with AFC MMA providing music for their events as well as ring announcing for the organization.
Michael can still be seen wrestling the local circuit today and enjoys spending his free time at the gym, doing mud runs for charity, attending concerts, skydiving, bungee jumping and the beach. Michael is known for his friendly, outgoing personality and truly enjoys working with people and organizations.
