ROCKstar of the Month of September: Michael Johnston

Congratulations to September’s ROCKstar of the Month, Michael Johnston! Over the last few years, he has grown from a dancer to a DJ and is now training as an MC. Whether he’s connecting with guests or engaging with his teammates, Michael’s positive energy and passion for his work shines through in all he does!


“My favorite things about being part of the RTH team are getting to work with new people at every event, getting to grow positive relationships with clients and fellow team members, and making sure our clients have the most fun possible! Plus, the friendships that I’ve forged while at Rock The House have brought a lot of happiness into my life.” – Michael Johnston, ROCKstar of the Month

While on the high school dance team, his director told him about an entertainment company, Rock The House, that needed dancers. “I didn’t know what to expect but if I got to dance, then that sounded great,” said Michael. “I ended up loving it and still love it.” Of all the events he’s worked, Michael still looks back fondly on his first event, which took place at a theater down in Columbus. “The kids and team were great, and we had a blast!”

“Ever since Michael started here at RTH, I saw a lot of potential in him. He began as a dancer and I noticed his energy, work ethic, personality and interaction with our guests. I knew that he had the tools and talent to play a bigger role at RTH. Michael does an amazing job connecting with our guests and as a team member, he is someone you always are happy to see on your event. I couldn’t be prouder of what Michael has brought to our team. I look forward to seeing Michael’s continued growth at Rock The House.” – Nick Duvé, General Manager, Entertainment Division
