Adrien Goudreault began DJing at a young age and quickly convinced Charlie Shafer to start River Beats Entertainment with him.


When Adrien is not using his DJ skills to make his clients’ events memorable, you can find him either running outdoors, camping, or exploring local restaurants in the Twin Cities. Adrien has an MBA from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, which he uses to continually elevate River Beats Entertainment above its competitors.

Charlie Shafer (a.k.a. "DJ-Client Privilege") has also worked for iHeart Media, Cities 97, and Hamline University Radio in addition to River Beats Entertainment.

By day, Charlie practices law as an attorney at Collins, Buckley, Sauntry & Haugh, P.L.L.P. By night, Charlie trades the law books for a turntable to give his clients the kind of quality only a DJ-at-law can provide. 

Colin Owens began his DJ career at school parties, and he soon fell in love with tailoring his sets to the desires of each audience. Colin came to River Beats Entertainment with years of experience in hyping attendees at any event—from corporate parties to weddings, and everything in between. Colin loves being a mobile DJ because it means he brings the party to his clients, wherever that may be.

When Colin isn’t DJing, he is still consumed by music by either procuring playlists or attending concerts. Colin has created numerous playlists for various audiences and genres, like house music, unique sounds, love, and upbeat vibes.



River Beats Entertainment was created in 2014 by Adrien Goudreault and Charlie Shafer. Adrien and Charlie value collaborating with their clients to create a distinctive experience for both them and their guests. Clients appreciate River Beats Entertainment because they bring a youthful, passionate, and professional approach to creating an awesome and memorable event everyone will remember. Adrien and Charlie are committed to their clients in delivering a high value and exceptional entertainment experience.
