The MOM (Motown On Mondays) headquarters in San Francisco has been running over 6 years strong now and was founded by DJ Gordo Cabeza. Over the past few years MOM has become a hometown favorite amongst Bay Area party goers. Every Monday hundreds of soul thirsty, dance ready folks from all industries converge on MOM's dance floor to absorb and reflect the love that some the best DJs on the West coast and beyond have to offer.
A few years ago Gordo and Timo (MOM SF partner) had decided to spread the wings of the MOM DJs brand and bring the magic of Motown to other cities. The first cities in line were Honolulu and Los Angeles... more recently MOM has branched out to New York, Oakland, Denver, San Jose, Chicago, Phoenix, Sacramento, Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Washington DC, St Louis, and Miami. In 2015, the brand has plans to spread to overseas destinations!
Since December of 2011, Monday nights in LA have become something special with a refreshing weekly dance party that showcases some of the most classic soul tunes, forgotten gems, remixes and related off-shoots/inspirations from the Motown catalog, attracting a funky and diverse mixture of party goers, dancers, DJs, and music lovers! Now 3 Years old, MOM LA has become an LA favorite, while receiving write-ups from LA Weekly, being listed in the "Top 10 Club Nights For People Who Don't Like Clubs", as well as getting write-ups and features from Time Out LA, Flavor Pill, Word Is Bond, Fusicology, Urb Magazine, Amoeba and more! Once a best-kept secret in LA, Motown On Mondays has become a staple in the city of Los Angeles!
Over the past 3 years, MOM LA has welcomed an all-star lineup of guests as well as hosted special edition tributes, including an annual J Dilla tribute during Dilla month, Stax vs Motown editions, a Root Down Does Motown edition, Hip-Hop editions, Chicago Soul vs Motown editions; annual Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and James Brown B-Day editions, and more.
