Cal Eustache is a mobile music man.
Under his newly launched DJ business, Fever Sounds, Cal brings music to wherever he goes; traveling with portable sound systems, and playing recorded music at events throughout the North Thompson Valley.
“I’ve DJ’d for 30 years off and on,” said Cal, “but mostly at ball tournaments and weddings. Now I’m going into it as a full time business.”
Cal says he can play any music requested. With a fully computerized system he can provide his clients anything from country and western to heavy metal or rock. He also MCs sports events, such as ball tournaments or hockey games.
“I’ve played fastball for 40 years, and people seem to like my voice,” says the DJ, “I can plug my computer right in at their slow-pitch tournament and people think it’s really cool.”
Cal says he would like to do a lot of family events; weddings, reunions, and sports. He can even bring karaoke to an event for some extra fun.
The DJ has had to rebuild his life a few times. Losing his Louis Creek home to the McLure Wildfire, as well as his job after 23 years at the Tolko Mill (also due to the fire), was an experience that proved Cal has no “quit” in him.
“I have always been able to find work, but now my health has created another change in my working life; so at 58 years old I am now running my own DJ business full time. I know how important it is to have good music at an event – and that’s what I do. I practice what I tell other people; you have to try your best and not be afraid to get out there.”
