Mindless Music Entertainment Provides Thoughtful DJ and Live Music Services

By Pamela Sosnowski

Mindless Music Entertainment was founded by a professional drummer to provide DJing and live music services to the Thousand Oaks area.

Christopher Olivas, aka "DJ Chris", really knows music. A self employed musician since the early '90s, Olivas founded Mindless Music Entertainment to provide DJ and live music services for weddings, parties, and other events in and around the Thousand Oaks area.

But more importantly, Olivas really knows his clients. Testimonials from several satisfied customers attest to his ability to deliver the precise playlists that clients want, reading a crowd's vibe, and possessing an intuition for playing the perfect song at the perfect moment.

"I work very closely with the clients to make sure everything is perfect for their event regardless of how big or small," Olivas said. "From the music to the lighting and to the timeline of a wedding, our clients are my number one priority."

Olivas has been the permanent drummer for the iconic new wave band Berlin since 2000, but his professional musical experience started way before that, when he used to drum for cover bands that focused on music from the '70s and '80s. He also began his DJ career around the same time. He launched Mindless Music Entertainment in 1995 "to make sure people get the best quality entertainment for their event with commitment to excellence and also have some fun while doing it."

For live music, the company offers several options. First, there's The MiniDriver Band which Olivas founded so he could continue to perform when Berlin was not touring. He describes The MiniDriverBand as a "straight up nicely dressed cover band playing all of the top hits spanning many decades."

Then there's DORK, whose band members have fun dressing up like they stepped out of a "Revenge Of the Nerds" movie. DORK can easily morph into a disco band playing the '70s decade's top hits, or an '80s cover band (referring to themselves as the stage name Weird Science.)

As a DJ, Olivas has more than 15 years of experience playing for clubs and private parties, specializing in weddings. He's available to cover an entire event from start to finish, and tests his state-of-the-art audio equipment to ensure the sound is crystal clear and at the right volume. Using his own in-house editing studio, he can easily edit songs to fit a ceremony or any other portion of an event.

"Basically I will take care of you for things you think of and some you may not have," he said. "My job is to make sure I supply the soundtrack for you to have a memorable night."

Mindless Music Entertainment also supplies special lighting effects to strike just the right ambiance at a venue. To learn more about DJ Chris Olivas and his services, visit
