Skills: Line Up

Jon “Jersey” Goldman

Chasing Summer is excited to welcome the voice of Las Vegas’ nightlife as the official MC for our fifth anniversary, Jon “Jersey” Goldman.

Known as the voice of Vegas Nightlife, Jersey has been hyping up crowds at the biggest parties, with the biggest names around. Anyone who’s walked into a nightclub in world famous Vegas hotels like MGM Grand, Caesers Palace and Aria to see Tiësto or many other top tier DJs will recognize Jersey. As Mood Director for some of the world’s largest nightclubs, he’s responsible for making sure every guest has the time of their life.

His career started humbly enough in costume, performing over 40 mascots in the past 15 years. But it was his talents on the mic that propelled him to the attention of Las Vegas, emceeing over 1000 events so far. His passion to entertain is infectious. As he says, “the nightclub world found me, and now they can’t get rid of me!”

Through his career, Jersey has held court with some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, like Bruno Mars, Wayne Gretzky and Drake, but his journey with Tiësto has proven to be a true milestone. With over 200 appearances together and counting, Jersey has helped the legendary DJ continue to captivate audiences all over the world.

One recent event took Jersey to the Kingsland festival in Tiësto’s homeland of Holland. “That was 3 shows in the matter of 9 hours in 3 different parts of the Netherlands!” Jersey explains. “That was just madness!”

Until Chasing Summer, Jersey has only spent a heartbeat of time in Canada. “I came with a supernatural entertainer for a single performance in Edmonton. Was in Canada for about 15 hours total and didn’t really get to do anything.”

But now, Jersey has “goosebumps” thinking about the adventure ahead at CSMF2017. To see how wild and passionate Canadian dance music fans can be, particularly when they’re being rocked by one of the most spectacular lineups in the festival’s history, is an adventure he can’t wait to enjoy.

“Some of the best party animals wave that Canada flag up high! [Chasing Summer has] such a stacked lineup of DJs that will really take the fans on a ride with the energy they bring. But ask any successful DJ and they’ll tell you they feed off the crowd! Can’t wait to feel the stage bounce… half from the bass of the music, and half from the fans jumping up and down! Let’s gooooooooo!!!”
