Isaac Atkinson is the founder of Good Times Entertainment and is best known as ‘Boss Man’ among members of the entertainment team. His focus has shifted so much from when he first started the company in 2005. With decades of experience under his belt, Isaac takes his responsibility as an entertainer very seriously. For him, anytime on the decks goes beyond a performance; it’s an opportunity to share his charisma and energy with a crowd. Isaac has learned through the years what it takes to help make parties and events to the next level. He combines his passion for the art form with education to create special moments for clients, whether he’s helping with a wedding, birthday party or corporate event.
As the founder and CEO of this company, he takes pride in knowing his team is the cream of the crop and plays an active role in making sure everyone is doing the best they can to take their game to the next level. He loves working with other vendors in the Central Valley to provide a thoughtful and stress-free experience.
Alex Bowser got his start as a DJ in 2014, but his passion to entertain goes further back than that. What he loves most about his role is knowing he has the power to set the tone for the entire event. He says he enjoys helping clients create memories one song at a time and loves having the creative freedom he has while showing guests how to have a good time on the dance floor. Alex’s role as part of the Good Times Entertainment staff goes beyond entertaining. He loves being able to use his experience as a way to influence other members of the team and pushing them to become better performers.
Geovanni Aranda bought his first turntable in 2011 when he first became a DJ. His first gigs were for family and friends who hired him for their backyard parties. Eventually, word spread about his talents and promoters hired him to perform at local clubs.
By the time he became a member of the Good Times team in 2015, he had honed his talents as an entertainer. Through the years, he’s learned how to read a crowd and control guests with each musical selection he makes. Geo says his main job is to make sure guests are enjoying their time on the dance floor with family and friends. He’s counting down to his own wedding day and because his fiancé says he can’t DJ, he’s selected another member of the Good Times family to do the honors: our own DJ Smooth.
Ryan Piña is best known as DJ Smooth and is one of GTE Event Group’s most experienced and requested DJ’s. He got his start about 20 years ago with gigs at local clubs around the Central Valley. Ryan says music has always been a passion of his and he loves to provide entertainment in this way because he enjoys making sure clients and their guests are enjoying themselves and having a good time. His favorite memory in his 2 years with GTE was when he had a chance to spin in Las Vegas for a group of DJs from across the country. When he isn’t on the decks, he enjoys spending time with his 3 children.
Elizabeth Archuleta has the privilege of being a headlining DJ on the GTE Event Group team. Her journey as part of the crew began when she was a client for her own wedding in 2016. She was drawn to become a DJ after falling in love with their energy and had the opportunity to explore the possibility in 2016. Elizabeth loves being able to show her artistic side with her song selections, but also enjoys knowing she is making a difference in her clients’ lives with the way she keeps their guests entertained. She’s loved every event she’s been a part of, but Elizabeth says her favorite memories are those spent with the GTE crew, mixing together.
Zach Archuleta says Elizabeth (his wife) had a big influence in him becoming a DJ in 2017. He left his job in the corporate world to start his own personal training business, and loved the idea of making a difference in people’s lives through entertainment. Zach says music has been a part of his life for a long time, but he enjoys being challenged by learning more about it while preparing for each performance. He says he loves the responsibility of helping each client and their guests make memories knowing how important it is for DJs to put in time to research music before each event. One of his favorite memories as a member of the GTE Event Group team was helping the son of a bride craft a special tribute to her in her wedding scrapbook. He says seeing her cry after reading it was meaningful for him.
