DJ | MC
Gadger was born here in the Valley of the Sun, has over 17 years of professional radio & wedding DJ'ing experience. He is married and has 2 daughters, 3 and 1 years old. He loves watching the Walking Dead & is a die-hard Arizona Cardinals, Suns, D-backs & Coyotes fan.
When he worked for the Arizona Coyotes as the In-Arena Host http://youtu.be/tbmS0gLhTDs <http://youtu.be/tbmS0gLhTDs> he discovered he was really good at sumo wrestling, so don't think about challenging him!
Spare time, he's big on streaming movies, going on date nights, and playing Xbox 1 when the family allows it ;) Gadger leads a very active lifestyle especially with his family & 3 Labrador Retrievers doing anything and everything that involves FUN! When DJ'ing weddings, his all time favorite song is "Uptown Funk" cause everybody loves to dance to it! He’s secretly obsessed with having to try every new item a fast food restaurant comes out with. So, next time ask him "Have you tried..." Yes he has.
Also something most people don’t know about him, is that he is addicted to baby cookies, great family mystery on why they disappear, he blames it on his 3 dogs & kids.
Gadger has a huge passion for music, pop culture, hosting & DJ’ing events, and being a part of the local community in Phoenix.
