PLEASE NOTE: I WILL NOT BE PROVIDING DJ SERVICES AT LEAST THROUGH THE SPRING OF 2021 OWING TO CONCERNS REGARDING COVID-19, AS WELL AS TO THE FACT THAT ALL OF MY DJ RECORDS ARE 2400+ MILES AWAY FROM WHERE I'M STATIONED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
Before I adopted the name for all my other side hustles, Golden Feelings was a DJ service. I started the company in 2015, with a lot of vinyl records ands a slogan: "LET US PROVIDE THE VIBES". I'd been DJing parties, bars, wedding, and charity events for many years before this.
My specialty is soul, funk, and rock & roll on 45 rpm singles, with a healthy smattering of jazz for good measure. Nearly everything I play is still on original vinyl records (though I do bring digital backups, especially for situations where requests are likely).
If you want recent top 40 hits or nonstop electronic dance music, I'm unlikely to be a great fit for your event... my knowledge in those areas drops off sharply around 2004 or so, and i'm in no rush to rectify that. That said, I'm available for all manner of events and venues, and have done tons of weddings, anniversary celebrations, and company parties, not to mention sock hops, cocktail nights, and benefit events. I'm an old hand at "feeling the room", and I do my level best to work with each client's budget. shoot me an email
for pricing and availability!

I have also spent a great deal of time as a radio personality for freeform/community radio stations, starting with WCBN-FM
in Ann Arbor, MI, and more recently as a guest host on both Freeform Portland
. To the right (below on mobile) are some archival recordings of 'Rutabaga Pie', a regular show I hosted on Freeform Portland for a few seasons which largely centered around classic jazz and soul. I've also thrown in a couple other homemade mixes and the like, for good measure.
