Peter Kiesel “DJ Jimmy Grizzley”
Peter began his musical career when he walked into his college dorm room in 1996. His college roommate had a turnable set up in the room and so it all began and he never looked back. Always having a passion for music instilled by his parents, he grew up on older genres from the 50s and 60s, while enjoying the “modern music” of the 80’s and 90’s. Growing up in New York music was life and this was just the next evolution. During college he worked with the campus radio station and further developed his craft.
Career moves brought him to California. He began a non-profit company where he organized large scale, party atmosphere events to raise money for pancreatic cancer. A passion for fun loving events, a creative mind and the desire to help made it a natural transition.
He continued DJing all types of events such as parties, sweet 16s, anniversaries, fundraisers, quinceaneras and weddings. With more events, came more success only exhibited by the satisfied clients.
In early 2015 he decided to take his successful formula of event experience and organization with exceptional music knowledge and attention to clients needs to create GE Productions. Since then DJ Jimmy Grizzley has worked diligently to become one of the best DJs in southern California.
