About

I Brandon Tjaden, owner of Great Beginnings Dj Service based out of Gresham and the Portland Metro area have been in the Dj business since I was 12 years old learning from the best Dj'n with my Dad and uncles. For the past 25 years I have established and built my own reputation of quality service & satisfied customers. I am the owner and The Dj of my company which ensures quality and top preformance at every event.

I think I was destined to be a Dj in life as soon as I got my first boom box! As a kid I would record and splice hits off the radio on to cassettes, burn and put together mix CDs to sell them to kids in my middle school! I Dj'd my own High school dances and was Dj'n weddings by myself at the age of 16.

Being a wedding Dj it is my goal to create an amazing and unforgettable experience for you and your guests. I believe in creating the perfect mood while being professional, timely, and prepared for any situation. I pride myself on not only playing great music, but also helping with the flow of your event so you can enjoy this magical day you are planning. I view my services as more than playing a great mix of music, but also entertaining your guests, maintaining a smooth flow of events, and providing assistance planning your event. A good mix of these services will help to ensure your event runs smoothly, and that all your guests will have an amazing time they will remember for years to come.

    Best DJ in Portland

    Brandon was above and beyond all of our expectations. He went out of his way to ensure that my wife and I were well taken care of and that he molded specifically to fit our vision for the day. One of my favorite questions he asked us during interviews with DJs was "What year did you guys graduate high school?" so that he would have 4 years on either side of music he knew he could tap into. Another example of him going above and beyond: when my wife and I were cutting the cake, he ran across the room to ensure we had a napkin since the staff at our venue had forgotten to put one on the table. Not to mention he had the dance floor jam packed the entire evening.

    Every step of the way he was a kind and polished professional. Anyone who is lucky enough to work with him on their wedding day will be left with fantastic memories from the night!

    Brandon~ amazing

    We cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed having Brandon DJ our daughter's wedding. He was beyond anything we could have expected. Not just his awesome song choices, but him in general. He is professional but makes you feel like you've known him forever. He helped out with everything. And the best announcement to the bride and groom entering their reception that I've ever heard. He definitely got guests to come out to their shells and have fun. If you don't want "just" a DJ, but an amazing guy and all-around entertainer.........get Brandon to your event!!!

    The best DJ!!!!

    Brandon was our DJ for our wedding this past weekend and we CANNOT say enough good things about him. From our first face time meeting, we knew instantly he would be an amazing party orchestrator with his fun and energetic personality. He was happy to be the voice of the party and make everything between the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, dance time, and our send off flow perfectly. He worked very well with our caterer and photographer. We cannot thank you brandon enough for making our wedding ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and memorable for us and all of our friends and family. I suggest anyone needing a fun voice of your party and DJ to not hesitate and hire this amazing man!!!! We will cherish you forever.

Amazing Job!! Very Fun!

Lakeside Gardens Lakeside Gardens Banquet Halls

I've experienced a lot of "DJs" at Lakeside Gardens that probably shouldn't be using that title. Brandon was a breath of fresh air! He came early and was setup for both the outside ceremony and indoor reception in plenty of time. To add a fun touch to the dance floor inside he brought moving lights. He played great music and created the prefect party atmosphere - he was even out on the dance floor getting down with the guests at one point! Besides the dance party portion of the evening I would say ANNOUNCEMENTS are almost as important. I can't tell you how many awkward DJs I've experienced when it comes to announcement making. Brandon was professional, clear and loud enough for everyone to hear when important announcements were made to keep the time line flowing along. I would recommend Brandon to my future brides. If you are looking for a FUN and professional DJ give Brandon a call!
