DJ GOOD THINGS

 

LATEST MIX

Sunday Groove Live Mix (9-25-22)

This is a live mix I recorded at my weekly Wednesday gig at Home, A Bar in Portland, OR. I've been having a fun time at that place. This particular week, I just freestyled starting with some Yacht adjacent disco-rock for the people that were already there. The rest of the set was mostly tracks that I've never played before. A lot of stuff that was new to my library with some old faves sprinkled in. Most of it wasn't prepared at all. R&B heavy. Disco, funk, G-funk, samba, a sprinkle or New Jack Swing and jazz. Vibes. Also, I was only scheduled to play 3 hours, but played almost 4.

BIOGRAPHY

With dozens of performances at Ilani Casino, playing the same stages as acts like Pitbull, Alanis Morissette, En Vogue, Salt-n-Peppa and Sir Mix-a-Lot, DJ Good Things is no stranger to playing big events and to big crowds. At Ilani he has often followed acts like Lit, Reel Big Fish, and Hell's Belles, playing special events such as New Year’s Eve, St. Patricks’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, BrewFest, and an after party for CBS's Big Brother.


In addition to Ilani, Good Things has held residencies at EastBurn and Starday Tavern, where he co-founded the popular ongoing weekly Party Portal/Shaqtime party with good friend, DMoeFunk.

He is a highly sought mobile event DJ around and outside of Portland, playing private and corporate events at over 80 venues all the way from Ski Bowl on Mt. Hood to Salishan Resort on the Oregon coast. And from Ilani Casino and Resort in Ridgefield, WA to Andaz in downtown Napa, CA for companies like Nike, Air BnB, Soccer in the Sand, and Willamette Week’s Food Cart Festival, which sold out at 3,500 tickets.

He has also played Portland hotspots such as Fortune, Fifth Avenue Lounge, and Saucebox. He is currently in rotation at events such as Motown on Mondays Portland and Secret Roller Disco and has been a semi-regular DJ at OMSI After Dark, playing their annual beer festival several times.

His mixtapes have consistently placed in the top 100 on Mixcloud.com in categories such as Club, Classics, R&B, Boogie, Pop, G-Funk, Samba, and Reggae.

WEDDINGS

Weddings are some of my favorite events to DJ. I love how fun it is to get everyone from toddlers to grandparents dancing and having a good time. Unlike other DJ services, I have a flat rate that keeps the party going as late as need be without having to worry about additional hourly fees.

I provide music, wireless microphones, and great sounding systems and work hard to make your wedding day runs smoothly and sounds great. I can also make any necessary announcements and help make sure things run on time. And don't worry, I won't do any of that "cheesy DJ on a microphone stuff" unless you specifically ask for it.


I usually meet with the bride and groom to talk about music, to discuss details, and get a good idea of what you’re going for in terms of vibe. Any song that you want for your wedding that I don't have, I will track down before your wedding. I can also do special edits of songs. For example, in the past I have edited out verses of songs, added fade-ins and fade-outs, and have created medleys for special dances.


I understand that planning a wedding is a lot of work and can be overwhelming, which is why I always tell my clients to feel free to use me as a resource and knowledge base. The experience and wisdom I've accumulated from DJing weddings for over 10 years extends far beyond just DJing. I am more than happy to answer any questions you have related to other aspects of the wedding as well.


Lighting & Visuals


My services also include lighting that ranges from classy up-lighting to L.E.D. and laser party lights to give the dance floor a "night club" look.  I also have bubble, snow, haze, and fog machines available as well as additional L.E.D. lighting available. I also have a 1080p full HD projector and 6x6 foot screen and a HD 1080p 60' flatscreen TV available for slideshows, movies, or presentations.


After Parties & Silent Disco


A majority of the venues I have DJ’d at in the past have early sound cutoff times around 10PM. If you want your party to keep going after that, we can definitely set up an after party at another location. I have done that in the past and have even DJ’d a party bus from one venue to the next before. I also have silent disco equipment available.

Please contact me for pricing.

SILENT DISCO

Silent disco packages are a great option when volume is an issue at venues.


Available as an add-on to any DJ service or as a stand alone rental with no DJ service. 100 headphones available with 2 transmitters that transmit up to 1/4 mile. Headphones can switch between 2 channels, so that you can have 2 sources playing simultaneously for the wearer to choose from.

Unlike other silent disco headphones, ours are open ear. Which means they don't completely block out outside sounds, so that you can stay somewhat aware of your surroundings. They also allow you ears to breathe and not get sweaty. Plus, they are much lighter than other silent disco headphones.
