Hi! My name is Colin and I am the new owner of River Beats Entertainment and am an active, local DJ serving Minnesota and some areas of Wisconsin. I have a diverse range of musical tastes and have done DJ Entertainment for eight years, working and learning with some of the best DJ companies in the area completing 200+ weddings and events.
Some of my favorite Music Artists:
Avicii, Fireboy DML, Flo Rida, Pitbull, Cleo Sol, Khruangbin, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Kacey Musgraves, BJ the Chicago Kid, Lord Huron, Lainey Wilson, The Police, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rihanna.
My favorite genres of music are Rap, Hip Hop, Pop, Punk, and Dance and Electronic music. I love current country hits and rock and roll classics and don’t hesitate to pull them out. For eras, I especially love 80s music and 2000's dance and hits – but appreciate music from all eras and love pulling out oldies, especially Motown and Funk! I do homework for all events and usually have a set, but I take requests in advance and day of, too!
My Relationship With Music:
Music is a deep part of my history. My mom had an upright piano when I was growing up and would play on that constantly. I played trumpet in high school, then singing in college, and now mixing and arranging music as a DJ. Music is a healing tool and a creative outlet for me and I love finding music to fit any occasion.
Weddings are magical events for families to get together, celebrate love, and party down. I love being a part of making a special day possible for couples and creating memories that last a lifetime.
Favorite Part About Being A DJ: Bringing the party everywhere I go!
