Jared Berglund (DJ Jare Bear)

Owner/Lead DJ/MC

Hello, I am Jared Berglund, founder of Pure Vision Entertainment. My background in the entertainment and mobile events industry started over 18. Over that time I have had the opportunity to work in different roles such as DJ, Catering, Coordinator, Videographer, and in a Venue role. Music career began many years ago growing up playing the tenor saxophone for over9 years. My DJ career began back in 2009 when I became the DJ at the largest Country Bar in the Northwest called Duke's Country Bar & Grill. From there I migrated into larger dance clubs of all musical formats while also venturing in the mobile events industry. To this day my love and passion for music still holds just as strong as day 1 that I continue to play bars, clubs, music festivals, corporate events and weddings and having the opportunity to travel all over Oregon, Washington and parts of California.

As a DJ, I always strive to create a personal relationship with my clients, similar to that of a friend or family member. My favorite aspect of working weddings is the lifelong friendships the develop. Every wedding I have been apart of I still push to keep that relationship alive well beyond the day. I love seeing couples having babies, go on vacations, receive promotions and much more. I feel that we are able to develop a special bond between each other that I strive to celebrate every milestone in their journey and love that they are still cheering me on at the same time.

Manny Scott (DJ Manny Fresco)


I was born and raised in a small town in great state of Kansas, and that’s where my musical journey Began. I started becoming involve din music the way most kids do, through the school band program. Little did I know the decision I made to play the trombone would change my life. I had the opportunity to play from grade school, middle school to high school, while earning a scholarship to study music at Wichita State University where I received a degree in music performance. During my time in Kansas I played for many different Ensembles and groups that traveled all over the United States to perform. In 2014 I picked up my first set of turntables, and used my musical knowledge and training to push myself to the point of live performances such as clubs, weddings, and social events. In 2017 I moved to Portland Oregon where I have continued to play my horn and DJ regularly. 

Having the opportunity to be a wedding DJ is one
of the best experiences in life, and it seems like each and every wedding gets better and better. That is why I strive to always give 110%. It’s look on The bride and groom‘s face at the end of the night, that look of pure happiness and accomplishment knowing that their new life has just begun with a major bang. I love that LOOK! It pushes me to be a better DJ so that I can have that experience with every couple, family member and guest at each and every wedding.
