FOREWORD: If you are looking for YMCA, Celebration, We Are Family and the Electric Slide type of party there are 1000 other tuxedo sporting mobile services that you can hire and I'm sure they are eager for your business.

Still with me? GREAT!

FUN WARNING: You must be at least (point to yourself) this awesome to ride this ride.

NOW if you want a totally fun party that your friends and family will be talking about for years then look no further. I thrive on making every event I DJ memorable and most importantly as fun as possible. Nothing makes me happier than to see you dancing all night long -- it's a part of who I am.

And what kind of DJ am I? Well let me tell you: I am the "dance until your feet are tired and your face hurts from the good time you are having" type of DJ. In my "professional" party opinion, guests are there to do three things: mingle, drink and dance. Your guests are NOT there to see a laser light show and listen to a MC on a microphone. My parties are dance floor FULL, and crazy lights and cheesy MC free.

A sampling of my most recent playlist includes: Prince, James Brown, Joan Jett, Montell Jordan, Calvin Harris, The Steve Miller Band, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, The Beatles and Usher. As an added bonus, playlist customization is also available. Afterall, I want to DJ the party you want to be at.

Remember that besides the beautiful and poignant ceremony you are planning, the DJ (that's me) makes or breaks the rest of your special event. I've seen the very good, the vanilla, the bad and the wish-I-could-forget DJs. It is so cliche but also so very VERY accurate: with DJs you really do get what you pay when it comes to professionalism, talent and fun, and I am well worth every dollar you'll invest.


Make sure to check out my reviews and lets chat about your event very soon.

Warmest regards with a side of radical,

Ben Christiansen was fantastic! Great communication from the beginning. We had a lot of requested music we wanted played during our dinner/ cocktail hour and then gave him an idea of what kind of dance music we liked. Not our first marriage so we had some older music and classics we love. He was so accommodating and put together an evening of music that was exactly what we were looking for and that kept our guests dancing all night! He is a pleasure to work with and his attention to what we were looking for was very much appreciated.

DJ Royale was incredible. We knew going into the whole planning process that a DJ can make or break the party. From the get go, Ben was responsive, thoughtful and totally in touch with our wants and needs for the big day. He came well in advance to make sure everything was setup and ready to go. He was incredibly warm and friendly to all of our family and friends. We had people go out of their way to contact us and tell us how fantastic he was. I've been a bridesmaid 15 times and been to or coordinated numerous weddings and I have never seen that many people on the dance floor - and for 3 hours no less!!!! Highly professional and highly, highly recommended!

Looking for a DJ for your upcoming event? Quit reading this review and call DJ Royale right now! Benny was energetic and provided a great atmosphere for our group to have an awesome night on the dance floor. He was a great emcee for our reception as well, keeping things moving and hitting all the high notes. Our night ended with our entire group of friends dancing in a circle around us, and we have never felt so happy. Great music choices by Benny were instrumental in this, and our guests were impressed that he was able to provide transitions between songs, as well as mix music from many decades to keep everyone happy. He was on point with our requests and overall provided the best DJ experience we could have asked for. Seriously, quit reading this and call him!

Benny, aka "DJ Royale", did a really great job DJing our wedding. He also did the music for our ceremony to include pre-wedding music, processional and recessional music. I loved how he played music that our guests wanted to dance to and everyone had so much fun. The best part was dancing with my new husband, my family, his family and our friends while Benny made it fun. So much fun! Awesome DJ! Thank you Benny! You are very professional and fun at the same time. Thanks for keeping us on the timeline to cut the cake and start the first dance so we could get the party started. We appreciated you serving as emcee as well! Next big party we have, you'll be our go-to DJ and entertainment director!

DJ Royale was great! He kept people on the dance floor all night and was flexible when we threw him a curve ball and had a family member sing the last song of the night.

We had a destination wedding outside of Portland so we had to coordinate a lot of components remotely. Ben was such a great help for any tips/recommendations on the wedding day plans since he was very familiar with the venue. He was always very receptive to our questions and eased our minds about any concerns. This dude knows what he is doing. He's got the system under control and you won't be disappointed.

During the entire ceremony and reception we didn't have to even think about the music. He showed up early. Set up his gear. And we never had to give the music a second thought from that point forward. Everything was seamless from intro ceremony music to late night dance party.

I would undoubtedly recommend Ben (DJ Royale) to any friends, family or random internet people.
