These two CB sophomores want to bring some good vibes to your party.

At first glance, sophomores Aaron Cervantes (’16) and Beau Paulsen (’16) seem like average teenage boys full of cooties and other mysterious things.

But upon closer inspection, one might be surprised when discovering they have a booming side hobby.The two are partners in a growing disc jockey business.

When the Talon first sat down with these kids, they seemed excited to talk about their favorite passion. Beau was inspired by his parents who “have always been really into music” and Aaron shared that when he was younger, “if there was any music around I’d always be involved with it.”

But, the boys haven’t always been partners,

“I met [Aaron] freshman year,” Beau says. From the looks of it, they really hit it off. During the interview, there were inside jokes and a few giggles.

“[Beau] gets contacts for all the gigs and drags me along,” Aaron says kiddingly about their partnership.

At a gig, they don’t just play songs that sound similar.

“You definitely have to be able to read how people are feeling,” Beau says. “You have to have an ear for music.”

The two agreed that it is really hard trying to find a music genre that fits every single person at an event. Aaron mentions that they “try to reach the general audience”, but it’s impossible to keep everyone happy all the time.

Although they face a lot of the same struggles as top-notch DJs, Aaron and Beau are quite different from other entertainers.

“Most DJs, they have their booth, they put their headphones on, and they kind of hide,” Aaron says. “We get into the crowd, we party with them!”

For the pair, the most important thing is making sure everyone has a good time.

The duo are excited about what’s next for their aspiring business.

“Right now, [the] dream is to do, like, a big high school dance,” Beau says.

When going even further into the future, Beau shared that he “definitely hopes [to] do it through college, but maybe on a more professional level.”“I want it to be a pastime or hobby to get some money on the side, because it’s definitely a lot of fun,” Aaron adds.

If you ever need music for an event, be sure to talk to them!
