With the song of DJ Beau and Aaron fading out, a newcomer is more than ready to take over the turntables.
Since their freshmen year, the CB Main Lawn has been blessed with two amazing DJ’s: Beau Paulsen (’16) and Aaron Cervantes (’16).
These disc jockeys were given permission to blast all kinds of banging beats and righteous rhythms whenever they can. Their prowess also got them to host a couple of our open dances, an honor which isn’t granted to most.
But like their performances, every show must come to a conclusion. So who is the one who will take over the table? The one who will mix that mad fire? The one who will cause a rampaging ruckus at all school lunch?
Jack Milliken (’19) is your man.
“[Jack] is amazing,” Beau said to the Talon.
Before working with Beau and Aaron, Jack has an impressive reputation of being a respectable DJ.
“I hosted a couple of [middle school] dances and then a couple of parties,” he says.
Now working under the wings of his Falcon idols, he is accumulating any kind of knowledge he can get before they ultimately pack up.
“He and I have worked together [before] — he has potential,” Beau says. “I would tell him what to get and how to work things [and he picks it up fast].”
There has been talk of him being officially recognized as the new DJ of CB — something Jack does not mind it one bit.
“I would be honored and humbled if I can fill the shoes of Aaron and Beau,” the freshman says.
Being able to fill in the legacy Beau and Aaron has created is quite the feat for the freshman, but he is up fill those to the expectations. Even if it takes a long time, Jack wants to “make sure [he] can fill their shoes correctly” with no shortcuts or easy way outs.
But why go through the hassle of trying to be the next DJ? CB isn’t required to have a DJ and they aren’t even required to play during all school lunch.
“There is a sense of walking out of classroom and I hear the bass, my favorite songs playing — it is what makes this school amazing,” Jack says.
DJing is on an emotional level for Jack. He understands that it is a hard hobby to undertake. There are people who will criticize him and people who will maybe walk out on his gigs, but that is fractional to what Jack’s goals are.
Even if only one person hears his music, as long as he has made their day, there is nothing that can compare to it. It will be a long road for Jack, one with many obstacles but it will through those rough times that Jack Milliken will become the next hottest DJ in CB.
