"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.”
Absorbing the sounds of New York since her birth in Brooklyn, Tara spins a collage of sounds that captures the eclectic vibe of modern New York life.
Having performed at diverse and unconventional venues around New York City, Tara is always eager to find new and exciting crowds to spin for. Early on in her career, Tara realized being a DJ is more than just playing a mix of records; it is a matter of building trust between herself and the crowd and sharing the knowledge and love the she has for the music and the feelings it projects onto the listeners. The crowd trusts Tara to become part of another great night in their lives, and she returns that favor by giving them a taste of the familiar as well as something new that may be something they have never realized was needed or missed in their musical memory.
DJ Monk-One, aka Andrew Mason, has DJ-ed in New York City for fifteen years and is a founder and Contributing Editor of Wax Poetics Magazine. He has released numerous best-selling mix CDs and records of his own compositions through his independent label, Names You Can Trust as well as holding residencies at WBAI-FM and many of the finest, funkiest parties in New York City. As one half of the renowned production squad Greenwood Rhythm Coalition Monk has done remix and original work for labels in the US, Japan and Europe and has DJ-ed across the globe.
Intent on defending the blend, Concerned navigates the waters where Funk, Soul, Reggae, Latin, Afro-beat and Hip Hop intersect. He is a fan-favorite and a darling of the social scene. His versatility makes him the rare DJ recruited by live bands of all genres. Concerned is trusted to set the vibe for any audience, customized to the style of the particular band.

When asked twenty years ago by his parents "what are you gonna do out there in San Francisco", New York Native Wisdom confidently replied, "Deejay!" Now twenty years later in 2012, DJ Wisdom's career has taken him to places as far away as Europe and all over the United States and Canada. This list of parties he's played at nationally and internationally have included Cafe Moscow in Berlin, Germany, The Fillmore West, in San Francisco, CA, and The Basement, in Ontario, Canada. Wisdom has been the founder and resident at numerous parties throughout San Francisco's golden era of the 1990's and early 2000's, such as Funkside (Club Deco), Blend (Storyville), and Casa (Madrone). These parties are representative of the diverse types of of music DJ Wisdom blends (brings into the mix?), as varied as hip hop, soul, latin, caribbean, and international. This multifaceted appeal grew its roots in the early years in San Fran when, in 1993, DJ Wisdom, along with J-Boogie and Raw-B, created Beatsauce hip hop radio show on KUSF, a groundbreaking show that ran for 15 years. During those programs, DJ Wisdom interviewed such musical legends as Afrika Bambata, Guru, Common, and Jay-Z.
