Before joining the exciting Vegas night scene, DJ Jeff G lived a more subdued life as a wedding DJ before getting a gig as a DJ for an 18 and under club. Jeff soon moved to Portland where he deejayed for radio and clubs and then eventually relocated to Las Vegas.
These days you can listen to him daily on Vegas’ Hot 97.5 radio or watch him spin weekly at hot-spots like Voodoo Lounge, the Foundation Room or Insert Coins. HPNOTIQ got a chance to catch up with the Sin City deejay to discuss drunken requests and what he loves most about Vegas.
What makes a good DJ?
Someone who can read a crowd and play music accordingly.
What is one of your fondest memories behind the 1s and 2s:
I’m most fond of the nights that I have no memory of (laughs).
What other DJs would you love to work with? Why?
DJ Exodux. We’ve been friends a long time and I consider him one of the most talented guys in this city.
What are some of your favorite places to party?
Other than where I work, XS, Moon, Marquee and little bars like PT’s and Sierra Gold.
What are three songs guaranteed to make everyone dance?
“Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey
“Dynamite” by Taio Cruz
And pretty much anything by the Black Eyed Peas (laughs).
Do you have a good luck record?
Right now I love “Give Me Everything” by Pitbull and Ne-Yo.
What is your most loathed request?
There’s no song in particular. I do give people a pretty stupid face when they come up and request a song that is currently playing. They’ll just too drunk to comprehend, but it happens all the time.
What’s your favorite thing about Las Vegas?
The face that nothing ever closes. I’m a total night owl, so love to be able to get out of the house at random times of the night.
