Mike Gradian

Nathan Hudson Entertainment is proud to announce the addition of DJ Mike Gradian.

I’ve been djing and producing music for over 15 years. Having had parents in the military, I was privileged to travel all over the world and experience all kinds of art, music, food, and culture. So many of these things have influenced not only my music, but also the way I view and live life. I have lived in Boise since 1993, and now call it home. Having helped establish the music scene here over the years, not only as an artist but as a promoter and manager of clubs. It has given me a greater appreciation for all the music that comes through town over the years.

“So I had always pictured dancing to a band at my wedding. And truth be told, I started there. But, I’m picky. Very picky…I decided maybe I had been looking in the wrong place. Nathan came highly recommended…so I took a leap of faith.

And boy, did that work out! We had THE MOST FUN dancing. Everyone was on the dance floor all night long – our friends, the little kids, our parents, our grandparents. It was incredible. Nathan played everything we wanted, everything we didn’t know we wanted, and nothing we didn’t. He took requests and even set up an impromptu karaoke session for us on the spot. I could not have imagined a better DJ. I’ve had so many friends tell us since what fun the dancing was (see for yourself around 5:48). The only thing I was sad about was that it had to end.
Go with Nathan. You’ll dance. Your friends will thank you. You’ll pat yourself on the back. And you’ll want to hug him. Recently featured in StyleMePretty. Video


“Nathan Hudson who has been our resident DJ for the past 2 years. Barbacoa is a multi-dimensional dinning destination that turns into a nightclub on the weekends. Music and entertainment are a huge part of what makes us successful. Nathan has helped us maintain an energetic and dynamic nightclub environment which would suit you well. With the reputation of being Boise’s best place to dine and drink, we are very selective with our DJ’s Nathan has by far exceeded our expectations…”

Kris Westergard/Entertainment Manager


“When my husband and I met with Nathan, we had a few simple requests: 1. No line dancing. 2. ‘Shout’ is a must-play (we are Oregon grads), and 3. Keep all of our guests packed on the dance floor the entire night. Looking back, that’s a really tall order! Imagine the pressure. But man did Nathan deliver all of that, 10-fold. Not even elaborating when I say that every single one of our guests hit the dance floor and stayed there until the end. In fact, they begged Nathan for not one, but two encores. My husband and I still hear to this day how fun our wedding was, and I can’t give Nathan enough credit or praise for that. I wish I could get married again just to have him DJ my wedding once more. Bravo DJ N8!”

“The most telling sign of a good DJ is a crowded dance floor and at our wedding, the dance floor was never empty! Nathan, thanks for helping to make our wedding day the best day ever!”
