Here's A Little Story ...
MOM DJS started with a humble beginning and a modest goal. The founder, Donovan Hall (aka DJ Gordo Cabeza), was asked to curate a night at Madrone Art Bar , one of San Francisco’s neighborhood venues. He decided to create a night he called Motown On Mondays. (MOM SF) The concept was to have a weekly event on Mondays that featured the music his mother raised him on … Motown, and make it a unique experience that had ‘family’ as it foundation. Donovan invited his close DJ friends to share their take on the Motor City and soul sound each week. MOM also offered original video footage from the golden era of this music and even hired a chair-masseuse. After its first year MOM SF’s attendance resembled a weekend night. What distinguished this crowd from the weekenders was the consistently positive vibe and attitude of the revelers, DJs and staff.

Today MOM DJs is headed by Donovan Hall and Timothy Ryan (DJs Gordo Cabeza & Timoteo Gigante) with the assistance of a small design and marketing team. We produce weekly events in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Austin along with being featured at many festivals and one-offs each year. MOM DJs is inspired by a creative movement that honors artists like Stevie Wonder, The Supremes and Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, and Mary Wells. We travel on the shoulders of these musical giants while celebrating and preserving their achievements for generations to come.

DJ MELO
DJ MELO
DJ Melo is an award-winning DJ, and one of the most in-demand selectors on the latin and Moombahton scenes. He is a veteran of the Phoenix club scene, first at Jackson’s on 3rd, where he helped to introduce the Reggaeton sound, then at Karama Nightclub – leading both clubs into the Phoenix Times’ ‘Best Of’ issues. Melo himself was voted Best Latin DJ in its 2008 Thrill City issue.

As a member of the Muzik Junkies Remix Squad, his edits have been played across the country by top DJs, while his skills have also led to him dropping guest radio mixes for both 92.7/99.3 The Beat and Power 98.3 on Phoenix Radio.

Most recently, DJ Melo has made a major impact on the exploding Moombahton scene, and is viewed as one of its innovators - he was the man behind the influential Winter Of Moombahton compilation and was invited to perform at the 2011 SXSW festival, and also among the artists selected for the prestigious ‘Blow Your Head - Dave Nada Presents Moombahton’ for Diplo’s Mad Decent Records.
