Edward Whitehouse



Tenure: I started my DJ career at 5 years old when I used to help carry my dad’s speaker bags into the venue for him. I’ve been a full-time DJ since 2012.

Where did you grow up? Windham / Salem NH

What do you like to do in your free time (activities/hobbies)?
Spend time with my two fur baby beagles Murph & Waylon, CrossFit, Sports, Reading / Podcast / Learning, Kayak, Snowboarding, anything fun and active!

What is something that you have had the opportunity to do, that most people haven’t? I was my twin sister’s “Man Of Honor” as her wedding. It gave me a whole new perceptive of what the Bride & Bridesmaids experience during a wedding, it’s totally different then being a groomsman where I think the most important job is just to show up and be on time. Being her “Man Of Honor” I was responsible for so many details, I think the most import take away was the “Bride Emergency Kit” which is a small bag that contains just about anything for any situation (i.e. scissors, aspirin, etc … google search it and it will give you a checklist!)

What would most people find interesting about you? Besides being a twin and having two beagles, I would have to say people have found it interesting that I’ve coached CrossFit to people in recovery from drugs & alcohol addiction. I really enjoy helping people progress in life, it was great to see people take something bad out and replace it with something that was good for them.

Who are some of your personal favorite musical artists? First of all I’m like most people & LOVE all types of music! Personally I love EDM artists like Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Eric Prydz, deadmau5, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, there’s just something about that beat! I also like Hip-Hop artists like Drake, Eminem, T.I., Kid Cudi. Alternative Rock Artists like Brand New, Rage Against The Machine, The Killers, 30 Seconds To Mars. Country Artists like Dierks Bentley, Brantly Gilbert, Luke Bryan, FGL. And honestly you just can’t go wrong with good throwbacks from the 80’s or 90’s.

What is one of your favorite parts about being a DJ? The planning process. Every event is unique and every client has a vision for his or her day, I work hard to fulfill that. It’s the best feeling to see everything come together & everyone enjoying their event!

How would you describe your DJ Style? Enthusiastic & Versatile.

What is the best advice that you can give a Bride & Groom for their wedding day? It sounds simple but my best advice is for you to make your day exactly how you want it. Don’t worry about anything that you feel like you have to do that day and just make it about the things that you want to do.

What is the most unique memory from a wedding event? I DJ’d a wedding a couple years back where the groom and all of his groomsmen were from France. The bride was really hoping that I could introduce the French names with the proper accent, the problem was that I’ve never taken French as a language to learn. I spent a month memorizing the names phonetically and successful introduced them all that way! To this way I still can remember the names that I needed to memorize. It was an awesome party they were a lot of fun!

What is one of your favorite parts of a wedding or event? My favorite part is the Introduction. It’s such a rockstar moment filled with energy & enthusiasm!

  • Grant & Aubrey’s Wedding 9-2-16

    Amanda,

    Good morning! DJ Ed was absolutely fabulous! He was very cordial, polite, and extremely diligent.

    For the ceremony, everything sounded beautiful, except for our officiant. His only issue I believe was he adjusted the lapel mic after Ed put it on him, so it wasn't picking his voice up well. So, really, not Ed's fault at all!
    For the reception, myself and several other people complimented how prior to the introductions, he had an IPad and was confirming minute details, like order, name pronunciation, and future schedule. His attention to detail really showed. His music choice was very excellent as well, as he not only played every song we requested, but also held to our do-not-play list, and his own choice of music. His transitions were good, and he did a great job of reading the audience to keep the dance floor occupied the whole night though. Overall we had plenty of compliments how fun the night was, how great of an MC the DJ was, and how great the music was.

    So, all in all, DJ ed was fantastic!

    Thank you for the wishes! If we ever need another MC or dJ, we know who to talk to!

  • Jeannie & Robert’s Wedding 9-3-16

    Ed was AWESOME!!! Everyone couldn't stop speaking so highly of him at the reception and afterwards. Everyone enjoyed the photobooth and I loved that we are able to save them all because some of our guest didn't put the strips in the book we brought haha so now we can see them all! .. Your company was fantastic to work with, and if we ever have any other kind of party, or family event we will deff be reaching out to you!

  • Lauraine 8-25-16

    Thank you for reaching out Amanda!  Everything went great, the staff was all excellent and we look forward to working with you again in the future.  I received the link to the pictures from the green screen – loved them!

    Hi Amanda,
        I can't say enough good things about Ed!!!! He was fabulous.  We had 90 6th graders, and he had them all dancing every minute of the party.  He was just what we needed!!! Every kid had a blast thanks to him!
         The Photo booth was such a huge success too! Having someone there to oversee it was great....one less thing to worry about during the festivities.
        I have been singing your companies praises all weekend, and will continue to do so! You guys made it all so easy for us from start to finish!
    Thanks so very much!!!!

  • Wendy Valentines Dance 2-12-16

    Hi Amanda!! Wow, DJ Simon and Photo Booth Attendant Ed did not disappoint this evening! Everyone had a great time and both gentlemen did a super job—even getting our principal up on chairs to lead a dance number—which I’ve never seen in my history at this school! Everyone loved it! Thank you for helping us coordinate all the details around this event and for sending in a super team to help us make the most of our event! Both Simon and Ed are just wonderful and we look forward to more evenings/events with A Good Time DJs! J ~W

  • Caitlin & Aaron’s Wedding

    Amanda

    At the risk of repeating myself, you guys are simply the best.  Ed was spectacular and without exaggerating, nearly all 80 people wanted to know where we "found" the DJ.  Paul and Mary Squires attended Caitlin's wedding as we have been friends a long time.  Ed did their daughter's wedding two falls ago and that is where we found him.  Paul and Mary insisted we pay them a referral fee :-).

    Ed was terrific, engaged everyone in the festivities and found the perfect blend of music to get everyone from 7 year old Lincoln to 80-something Grandma Char up on the dance floor.  It was the culmination of a very special day.

    And Amanda, what can I say but thank you for your tireless efforts with the changes and requests I had to make at the last minute.  It was a pleasure dealing with you every step of the way.

    Please feel free to use my contact info as a reference.

  • Meaghan & Lance’s Wedding

    DJ Ed was amazing!!! Everyone loved him! The Photobooth was a HUGE hit! There was a line to get into it. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ and Photobooth. I would highly recommend DJ Ed anytime. He was incredibly respectful to both of our families and friends. We loved it, thank you so much!

  • Shannon (Company / Public Holiday Event)

    Everything was fabulous!  Paul, Ed and Mark ( Photo booth attendant) were great, as usual.  You’re services are top notch and we love having you here for our Whole Night event.  It just wouldn’t be the same without that sparkly jacket!

    This year, our customers were really looking forward to the photo booth and we had a line for karaoke for most of the night.  The fun, party atmosphere your team creates really helps keep the crowds in a cheerful mood amidst the chaos.  I know our team members appreciate all Paul’s kind words about how hard everyone is working and reminding customers to say a “thank you.”

    Thank you for the spectacular service and we look forward to working with you again next year!

    Happy New Year to everyone at Good Times!

    They recently DJ/emceed my sister's wedding. Ed was our host and he ran the event tastefully, flawlessly and deftly. Great mix of music, fun games activities and connects without being corny! I've been to a LOT of weddings in the past few years, absolutely one of the top DJ experiences I've had! Kudos!

  • Becky & Mark Daniels

    We had Edward Whitehouse as our dj for our wedding. He was incredible!! Not only did the night flow perfectly and was a blast thanks to Ed, but he paid very close attention to detail and was a pleasure to work with. Ed, thank you!!! Can't wait until we have another huge party!!!

  • Leandra & Jay Pritchard

    We had a wonderful wedding with the help of Ed! The ceremony music was perfect and the reception music was fantastic! We gave him a list of songs that we would like to hear and he did a good job at playing those and others similar to those as well. We were very happy that he took the time to learn and pronounce everyone's names properly for the intros. He taught us the group dances and played some games. We really had a great time! We will surely keep Ed and A Goodtime DJ's in mind for future events and will suggest him to our friends as well. Since we were the first of our younger family and friends to get married, we needed to set the bar high for our wedding, and Ed definitely helped us get there!
    Thank you and Thank you very much to Ed!!!
    Have a great day!
    Leandra and Jay Pritchard
