MOM (Motown On Mondays) has been running 4 years strong in San Francisco and was founded by DJs Gordo Cabeza & Timoteo Gigante. 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 couple years ago Gordo and Timo had decided to spread the wings of MOM DJs & Events 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 Austin, New York, Oakland, Denver, and now Chicago!
Since December of 2011, Monday nights in LA have become something special with a fresh weekly dance party that showcases some of the most classic soul tunes, forgotten gems, remixes and related off-shoots/inspirations from the Motown catalog. Now over 2 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 various websites & blogs including Fusicology! This once, best-kept secret, is now becoming the talk of the town!
Over the past 2 years, MOM LA has curated a number of special edition nights including an annual J Dilla tribute during Dilla month, Stax vs Motown all-vinyl nights, a Root Down Does Motown edition, 3 different Coast 2 Coast editions with special guest DJ Spinna, Hip-Hop editions, Chicago Soul vs Motown editions, an annual Michael Jackson B-Day edition, a Stevie Wonder B-Day edition, and a James Brown vs Motown Edition. MOM LA has had the honor to house special guests such as: J.Rocc of The Beat Junkies, DJ Day, Lord Finesse, Maseo (De La Soul), Large Professor, Maker (Chicago), Boogie Blind (X-Ecutioners / NY), DJ Rhettmatic, C-Minus, Jeremy Sole (KCRW / theLift / Afro Funke), Ohmega Watts, Pickster One, House Shoes, Supreme La Rock, Chicken George, DJ Moppy, El Dopa, Rick Wren, Inka One, Wonway, Tricky T, Pirumov (Moscow), DJ Cocoe, DJ Wrex, DJ Mahf, DJ Sarasa, Manuvers, O-Dub, DJ Sun, Doc Delay (NY), Mike Murda, The Whooligan, DJ Low Key, Mr. Len, Eric Coleman (Mochilla), Bennet, Funky Sole DJs Miles & Clifton, DJ Abel, DJ Luman, DJ Tara, Jesse De La Pena (Chicago), P-Nyce, Chorizo Funk, DJ A1 (Erykah Badu), The Root Down Soundsystem, Gazoo, DJ Bonds, Wyatt Case, Inkfat, Small Change (NY), Platurn, E Da Boss, Impala Sound Champions, Ghettoblaster DJs, B.Sears (Austin, TX), Rev Shines (Quannum), DJ Destroyer, Danny Holloway, Sean-O, DJ Evo (Vancouver), Kid Cut Up, Byze One, Ta'Raach, and many others.
