About Jake

Born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida, Jake’s dream since he was in 3rd grade was to be a rockstar. He performed in many groups touring throughout high school and college during breaks until the age of 19 when he made the decision to dedicate two years of his life to service. Jake learned Spanish and served the people of Central America for two years helping people to build houses, overcome addictions and grow closer to Jesus Christ. Upon returning he was approached immediately by his older brother Nate and began to DJ.

“DJing is really similar to being on stage” said Jake, “It gets the adrenalin pumping, and the goal is always to make the night unforgettable for every single person in attendance. The only difference is I have a laptop in front of me instead of a guitar!” Currently age 23, Jake fronts pop-rock group Brightside, and studies Spanish and Communications at FSU. Having gained the ability from his band to address large crowds and his mission to speak in multiple languages. Jake knows how to amplify any kind of event!

What is your favorite song to play while DJing?

Don’t Stop Believin’. It’s one that all generations can connect to.

Who are your favorite artists?

They are all from totally different genres, but I really dig Bruno Mars, Queen, Smallpools, and One Direction (but don’t tell anybody about that last one).

What has been your most memorable wedding experience so far?

At one wedding a less-than-fully-sober groomsman ran by the DJ table and stole our wireless microphone. I was worried about what he might do and was ready to cut the volume to the mic from our mixer. He brought it back once he finished belting every last word of “Problem” by Ariana Grande with guests cheering him on, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. Now the man and I are friends on snapchat.

What song is cued up on your phone/iPod right now?

“GDFR” by Flo Rida

Anything else you’d like to say?

Back to The Future was the best movie ever made, Sherlock Holmes is awesome, and I can’t wait to DJ your wedding/event!
