Randy “Jack of Spades” Jarrett Being in front of a quiet crowd and you start to play that song that gets everyone from 5 years old to 65 years old on the floor dancing. There is no better sensation for a good DJ to experience. Randy Jarret has been DJing for 22 years. Growing up in a house filled with Reggae, Calypso, Rock, Country, and R&B helped to groom Randy into the DJ he is today.
In the mid 90’s Randy started DJing high school dances for Pine Ridge Secondary High School in Pickering and Harwood Secondary High School in Ajax. In the late 90’s Randy started DJing for McMaster University sports weekend and for their weekly Wednesday pub night.
While in High school Randy also did a co-op placement for one of the biggest lighting and sound companies in Pickering, Ontario, Apex Light and Sound. In the early 2000’s Randy started DJing on a radio program for CHRY 105.5 FM. Playing mostly older R&B and Hip Hop, this program opened up doors for him when he landed a job working at De Music Library, one of Scarborough’s top record stores. This is where he learned the business side of selling and renting DJ equipment and records. It also opened him up to love all types of different music such as House, Drum and Bass, and top 40.
In the next couple of years Randy started to get regular bookings in Durham Region in such places as La Scratch nightclub, Rumors nightclub, Legacy nightclub, Bob Cajuns in Pickering as well as Mud Hens in Pickering. Ever since then he has worked with some of the best DJ’S and MC’S in Toronto. DJing at clubs such as Afterlife, Money, Tonic, Time, Tryst, Cheval, Brant House, Guvernment, Koolhaus entertainment complex and 1812 night club to name a few. DJ’s that inspired Randy include- DJ Jazzy Jeff, Spinbad, Major Lazor, DJ Undercover, A-trak, DJ Am and Jam Master Jay.
All of these DJ’S have one thing in common, they can play for any one at any time. That is the type of DJ Randy Jarrett (aka DJ Jack of Spades) strives to be. If you love a good party, whether it’s music from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s till today’s Top 40 this is the DJ to call.
