Meet Our DJ's

Mario Tavares, DJ and Master of Ceremonies
Mario was born in Delaware and moved to the Bay Area when he was just six months old, and now lives in San Jose. His love for music began at the early age of six, where he started playing brass instruments. Once junior high began he started playing the bass guitar and joined various bands that led to signing a production deal with a major studio at the young age of 19. Since then Mario has performed throughout California both in concerts with Portuguese cultural bands and large marching bands. His DJ ambition started as a hobby and once he began to attract attention for his creative mix of music, he began to focus his elite technical skills as a DJ. Today his impeccable timing, attention to detail and exacting standards of sound quality can be attributed to these earlier pursuits. Mario has since appeared as a DJ in hundreds of events and now is focused exclusively on corporate events and weddings. He enjoys connecting with people and is known for his ability to 'read the crowd, to deliver the right music at the right time. When he is not discovering music, you can find him spending time with his wife and new baby son.

Justin Horrell, DJ and Master of Ceremonies

Justin Horrell has been an avid lover, performer and creator of music since acquiring his first set of turntables at the age of 12.  His initial intention was to become a performance "scratch" DJ, but was quickly recruited to DJ local high school dances and private parties. It is at these events where he refined his ability to mix pop and various dance music while catering to the energy and response of the crowd. Over the years, Justin has gained valuable experience as a performing musician, producer and recording engineer by DJing in diverse environments. Justin has appeared as a DJ in hundreds of special events and is now focused exclusively on weddings and corporate events. His love and understanding of music plays an integral part of his job.

"It's pretty simple, I just love music! It's been my life for over a decade. Every aspect of my day to day is enshrouded in music, from playing in touring acts around the country, to producing, recording and teaching private guitar and drum lessons. DJ-ing just came along with the territory of sharing my love of music with others. I love the emotional response music elicits from people, and to be able to provide that is such a pleasure."
