What constitutes human beings is the capacity to create. Because we have this, there is an elaborate communication system that enables us to express ourselves various ways. One of the greatest forms of expression is music, which gives individuals the ability to focus, entertain, relate, and express their individuality. DJ Jimmy Goods has been in the music industry for thirteen years, and his success is greatly accredited to his dominating performances. He understands the demands of the people and always delivers an unforgettable experience.
Jimmy was born in the Dominican Republic and was raised there until the age of twelve when his family made the decision to move to New York in pursuit of a better life. Five years later, seventeen-year-old Jimmy began working for a summer youth program. He had always wanted to be in the music business, and he was determined to save enough money to purchase his first set of equipment. Then in 1999 he was finally able to do so. Step One of the dream was fulfilled. The next step was, of course, to perfect his craft.
Jimmy passionately practiced daily in order to become the successful artist he is today. His determination was derived from a childhood fixation. Most kids say they listen to music all the time, but in Jimmy’s case, he listened to music all the time! It wasn’t just something he enjoyed for the beats and lyrics – Jimmy appreciated the art of music.
After honing the craft of DJ’ing, Jimmy landed his first gig performing for about 300 people at a private event. He naturally progressed and began being promoted. Since then, Jimmy has gone on to make appearances at renowned clubs around New York City, such as Copacabana, China Club, and Suzie Wong. Later, he gained permanent residency as the official DJ at Fula Lounge in Brooklyn, NY.
After finding success as a freelance DJ, Jimmy partnered up with Pure Sounds Entertainment, a mobile music entertainment company, which operates throughout the Tri-State area (www.PureSoundsEnt.com).
Jimmy credits a majority of his success to his amazing people skills.
“You always have to keep your humility and just be a genuine person,” he said.
As one of the highlights of Jimmy’s career, he owned and operated his own radio show for about a year and a half, which he is currently planning to reinstate on his website www.DJJimmyGoods.com. The show had a diverse, international following, and many of his listeners are anxiously awaiting its revival.
DJ Jimmy’s style does not have limitations. He plays anything from Latin to EDM. He trained his ear to understand his audience, and he plays a killer combination to get any crowd going. Many DJs have only certain demographics that they can appeal to, but Jimmy can work any party and be a success.
Jimmy’s career is well-established, but that doesn’t keep him from striving to do better. His next major goal is to have his mixes featured on mainstream radio stations nationwide. He is also interested in landing a position as a radio DJ. Given Jimmy’s talents, both of those goals seem imminently attainable!
Being great at what you do and networking properly is always a successful combination, but having a remarkable personality sets Jimmy apart from others. People naturally strive to be around up-beat, driven individuals like Jimmy. His total package of talent, business savvy, and likability is why Jimmy is going so strong thirteen years into his career with no sign of slowing down.
