DJ Andy G.
Professional Parties’ co-owner and head DJ, has been packing dance floors in the Portland area for the past ten years, all the while learning what makes a great dance party. From formal affairs to casual parties, Andy has the quick reflexes and sharp mind to adapt to any crowd’s desires.
He began his career as a DJ behind the microphone while still attending high school, and after years of radio shows, dance clubs and karaoke bars, Andy settled into his favorite area of live events: weddings. Andy loves all parties, but weddings allow a crowd to be more than just friends gathering to dance- A wedding gives everyone in attendance a chance to really connect with one another. A close knit, fun loving dance party is what Andy loves most about being a wedding DJ.
A born announcer, and a hopeless romantic, Andy immediately took to life as a wedding DJ, and continued to work in the industry for the next ten years. Lately, he has been busy planning his own wedding (and selecting the perfect wedding DJ) and can especially relate to clients who are overwhelmed by the process. What he has learned as client can be directly applied to his career as a vendor.
Using an approach that is both friendly and formal, Andy speaks to the crowd in a way that never overshadows the event. While some crowds might take more encouragement to get moving than others, Andy promises the focus of the crowd will be on you. He truly loves putting together custom mixes, searching out perfect songs, and discovering new music. He often says there is no music that he doesn’t love.
Professional Parties DJ Entertainment wants a couple to relax and enjoy the night, so we take the surprises out the evening. We will meet as often as you deem necessary to discuss the music, as well as how you would like the DJ to interact with the crowd. Our on line planning materials make your wishes clear, and Andy’s attention to detail eliminates the need for guesswork.
