Eric Hedford (DJ Aquaman) is a legendary club DJ and musician based out of Portland, Oregon best known for his Soul Stew Fridays at The Goodfoot and drumming in The Dandy Warhols. Clients hire him for his taste in music, ability to read a crowd, and when dancing is a priority.

He spins both vinyl and digital and is a 60’s soul, funk, disco, and old-school hip hop specialist with a unique selection of party jams from across eras. He also enjoys a modern tune and might even get crunk. Check the "Video" section on this profile for a music sample. He can also send you a Spotify link for songs he likes to play during cocktail hour.

Eric’s expertise in running live sound offers a high-quality experience for ceremonies so everyone can hear your vows and no ugly microphones, cords and speakers are in the pictures. Plus he’s happy to make announcements during the party.

His team includes an amazing booking agent, Jen Bernard, who will help coordinate with your venue and planners plus set your mind at ease with the contracts and timelines. And he rolls with a trusted roadie so the day-of setup is smooth sailing.

Masterclass in Spinning

Eric is an absolute professional in getting the dance floor rugs cut. One of the great things about the experience was the pre-wedding check-ins: making sure he understands what type of music you want played, but also allows for you to let him run the show. This is great for people either want to stick to a certain theme, or are fluid to letting him curate the selection. He has all the ceremony/reception/speeches/first dances portion down and necessary equipment to make it run smoothly. Then comes the party and boy does he bring it! We only had a few song requests and general genres we wanted played and Eric delivered in spades. All our friends were dancing until the venue lights came on. I would highly recommend booking Eric for your party!

Hired a pro got a pro

DJ Aquaman was incredible. Tired of hearing Pitbull and Ke$ha and all the meh wedding music? We were too so we turned to Eric who listened to us, crafted excellent cocktail + reception music, and read the vibe extremely well. He has great equipment that filled the whole room, fun lights, and even a wind-resistant mic which was crucial during the windy ceremony. Cannot say enough nice things about Eric and his team.

Amazing wedding DJ

We hired Eric for our wedding. He did everything including the ceremony, to cocktail hour to the dance party. He did an absolutely amazing job! He took our music taste into consideration while then also taking creative control to keep the dance party going. I danced the whole time! I couldn’t get off the dance floor because I loved every song! Dylan and I would highly recommend Eric. Eric’s assistant, Jen, was also amazing in communication. She was by far the fastest and easiest vendor to communicate with. Thank again Eric and Jen!
