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.
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.
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.

Julie Giron has been working with GTE Event group for almost four years now. She started in 2018 and met Isaac at a career fair with the intentions of only working one summer. After meeting the team and getting first hand experience what this industry is about, that is what has kept her around. Especially the opportunities and benefits that comes with being a Photo Booth attendant. She believes it has made her grow in many aspects and pushed her out of her comfort zone. Her favorite part of the job is being able to capture the excitement, the magic, and dynamic at each wedding or event she is booked for. Being behind the camera and seeing it all unfold in every shot the camera takes. The simplicity of making moments and transporting them into photographs that will be looked at from time to time and be cherished forever is another aspect of the job she enjoys. Her job is to provide quality and exceptional photos but most of all fun joyful memories that people can take home at the end of it. She recommends and without hesitation this great investment, it is a one of kind addition to any party.
