"Motown On Mondays"
MOM DJs is a family of djs, musicians, event producers,
designers and music enthusiasts that all share a passion for
the convergence of soulful dance music. They perform at and
produce weekly, monthly and special events across the globe.
From their headquarters in San Francisco to Los Angeles, New
York to Austin, Honolulu to Berlin, Moscow to Vancouver, we
represent the most spirited events with a unique vibration. After
several years of cultivating the collective energies of their partners
and fans they’ve grown a veritable garden of talent to work with.
The inspiration comes from Motown, soul, funk and disco with
a focus on original remixes and edits of timeless songs. We
continually seek to bridge the gap from the tender eared youth to
the discerning tastes of our much-respected elders while placing
emphasis on quality and vibe over bottom line thinking. No
matter what the project MOM DJs keep your spirits lifted and hearts
“Connect. Commune. Create.”
