Introduction: I've been playing guitar and singing since I was a teenager. Originally I was a drummer and a lead singer traveling all around the country playing in rock and roll bands. These days, I play acoustic guitar and sing as well as DJ! I have a set that features just me and my acoustic guitar with the addition of a drum machine on some songs. I sing a wide variety of songs from country, pop, rock, soul, and reggae as well as oldies. I also have a set I call 'Bringing in the Band", the bass, drums, lead guitar, back up vocals are all pre-recorded while I play rhythm guitar. I also do a set of songs with total recorded music. I have set, I call the Crooner Set where is sing songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, the Platters, Five Satins, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Lionel Richie, etc. At the same time, I also sing: Bruno Mars, Jason Aldean, Billy Joel, Tom Petty, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheehan, Sam Smith, Van Morrison, Gordon Lightfoot, and Bon Jovi. I have a great sense both as a musician and as a DJ to play the right music/songs for each occasion. I show up on time and have the right PA system to fit small to large venues. When DJ'ing I'll work with you on the song list. I have songs for any occasion. I've DJ'ed Disco Parties, New Year's Eve Parties, RV Club Parties, Halloween Parties, Saint Paddy's Day parties, Skateboard Contests showcasing heavy metal, punk rock, hard rock, etc! Basically, I'm pretty down to fit into any occasion! I take few breaks when performing as I enjoy singing and providing music for people so much. I lived in Cherry Valley and moved there from Nothern California. I still play music gigs in Tahoe, Sacramento, Grass Valley, and Santa Cruz. I also travel to Phoenix, AZ and each year and play the D'Vine Restaurant in Mesa and the Saint Amand in Chandler, AZ. Yes, I'm an older man, but because I've been around actions sports all my life such as skateboarding, surfing, skiing, and snowboarding. I'm very familiar with all styles of music! I worked for ESPN and NBC producing the skateboarding and snowboarding events for the X Games and Dew Tour for over 15 years! I've played gigs for teenagers to adults to gigs in senior citizen communities. I use to live in a retirement community called Highland Springs Villiage and I DJ most of the events there as well as sing and play guitar. I also lived next to the Highland Springs Farm and Inn where I was a regular performer for the past 8 years. The Station Tap House in Banning is a local bar that I also perform regularly on Mellow Mondays! In August and September 2020, I played music every Friday and Saturday evening at the American Road Trip Bar & Grill in Yucaipa. Since then, I’ve been playing private and birthday parties in homes. Due to Covid, I’ve had 5 weddings canceled! I’ve had both vaccine shots and the booster. I am good to provide great entertainment. I have also started to offer Karaoke! April 2021 I moved to Palm Desert to the Palm Desert Greens Country Club. In November I started singing every 3rd Friday of the month in the bar/restaurant. I was also featured with my own show last September on the main clubhouse stage. It's so great to be close to many of my music jobs now! I've been super busy now that masks aren't required. So many people are having parties and that's what I do. I’ve also been very busy with weddings! Please contact me! Please see my reviews here on Thumbtack, cheers!

In looking for a Karaoke DJ for an adult joint birthday party, I found different options and price points. Don was quick to respond, we had a Zoom meeting, set pricing which was very reasonable, he also offers a personalized song for the occasion that he writes and performs. Day of event, he was early to set up, great set up, he played music and sang as we ate dinner, then got the party started. Don was great and we asked him to stay 2 extra hours. We all had a blast!!! It was non-stop! Would definitely hire Don again!

Details: Birthday party • Basic (e.g., under 25 guests, small venue, standard equipment) • 31 - 50 years old • As recommended by the professional

Don showed up on time and did a great job entertaining the guests. This was for my mom's 89 birthday and she was so pleased with Don. So were many other guests. Don sang the requested songs from the 1940s all the way to popular songs today. I would definitely hire Don again!

Don DJ my 45th birthday/9th Anniversary party. Very good at what he does. Played all the music that we wanted him to play. He also had a request list that anybody can request, which I thought was awesome. He showed up early to set up and be prepared to play. He even sang me a birthday song which was amazing. We would really recommend Don as a DJ plus he sang songs in between DJing. We give him five stars plus. We will be having him for our future parties. Thanks again Don you were awesome!
