I started this company in 1990, a few years after graduating from Utah State University. As an Air Force kid, I was born in Texas, but lived all over the U.S. and Europe. I came to Los Angeles to pursue and acting career, and was becoming annoyed waiting tables and paid the bills by working in the L.A. Club scene earning my DJ wings before dreaming up Tasty Sounds. My wife Diane and our daughter Kelly Marie are my biggest joys, and biggest inspiration. I haven’t missed a ski season in 35 years, so yeah I can ski. I also love my football, go Fins, and I have been known to cheer for the Chargers. So how do I burn off the stress from Weddings, Mitzvah’s, Schools and Corporate events, well by fighting of course? I currently hold a 7th degree black belt in Kung Fu San Soo; which is my main hobby along with being a major comic book geek.


Lead Dancer

Jennifer our princess of dance is another native Californian from Pasadena, and a graduate of Westridge School for girls. She studied dance for 17 years with the Pasadena civic ballet company, and continued her education at Pasadena City College & UCLA. Some of you may recognize Jen from her guest staring roles on Desperate Housewives, That 70’s Show, Malcolm in the Middle and her upcoming lead role in the movie Transylmania. Jen loves her Yoga and catching theatre productions but her biggest hobby is being a foodie, but she doesn’t want to cook it, just eat it.

MC/DJ/Office Manager

Brian is a Ventura raised native Californian and a graduate of Buena High School, where he could have been seen on the school stage or at local theatre and Los Angeles based productions. He polished up his MC & acting Skills at many Improv schools and showcases. Brian is a killer skater and was a National Roller Speed Skater competitor, which is how he got his start, DJ’ing at the Local Skating Rink, and where he perfected his mixing skills and caught the DJ bug. Besides burning up the turntables (hence the Phenixx name) and running my office, he is now trying his hand at audio pro duction.

DJ & Scratch King


Dru is another of our talented, quick thinking, and charming performers who has a great way of connecting with all of our brides & grooms. Because he is Bilingual, (Spanish not Icelandic) it makes him a double threat and another factor in making him a much sought after entertainer. In college Dru played college level baseball, and went on to a few club teams in Europe and eventually was drafted by the Giants, until injuries sidelined him permanently. Dru’s biggest hobby is leftist politics; but I still send him out on gigs anyway, that’s how good he is.

Photo Booth Host/DJ

Seano, rhymes with Bono, is our Photo Booth, DJ & resident U2 expert. If you don’t find him taking care of your guests in one of our photo booths, you can find him in the DJ booth… or at a concert.


Victoria grew up in Surrey, England, (yes she has a killer accent) and when she was 18, she moved to Spain to work as a nanny overseeing six children. At 19, Victoria moved to Los Angeles where she earned a scholarship to the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute. She studied acting there for several years and also studied Broadcasting and Journalism at Santa Monica College. As a model Victoria has been featured in many fashion magazines and catalogues in Europe, the US and Mexico City, and has represented many international companies. To unwind this dynamo likes to throw dinner parties and head out to Karaoke bars with her chaps.





Nori is a dancer.

What can I say, he’s a legend. You definitely get what you pay for with this guy, also it’s always a 2 man show, because as Tony says “I don’t lift stuff”.

Los Angeles DJ Bar & Bat Mitzvah Testimonials

We are very lucky to have such truly giving clients who really love what we are doing for their families and are willing to tell the whole world all about it. Being an MC or DJ in Southern California for over 20 years is the easy part of my job; convincing a family that doesn’t know what my company can do and to TRUST us not to mess it up, that is the WORK. Maybe this video will make my job a little easier.

Dolby Sound Holiday Party

Dolby Labs in Burbank are a group of super smart engineers and around the holidays they want to have fun just like everyone else. They had their event, last December at the Equestrian Center in Burbank, a beautiful location for any significant event. I created a few well planned games like our “Blitz of Hitz” and our new game “Karaoke Wars” which made this event spectacular.

In the game “Blitz of Hitz” we have the tables compete against each other by having the table your sitting at listening to our custom clip and trying to guess the most artists and songs in that 1 minute clip. Sounds easy, but it’s not, and in 10 years nobody has guessed them all right. In that 1 minute clip we play about 35 songs, with about 5 famous movie lines and some random stuff thrown in, and you have about 3 minutes to conference with your table and write them down on the pad of paper we provided. We have about 4 different categories (50’s, 80’s, Disco & Rock), and this is a great way to get everybody to know each other before dinner and break the ice. You would think a company like Dolby Sounds would rule at this, but alas they where very normal.

Karaoke Wars was pretty easy, I threw random artist into a hat, Sinatra, Elvis, Gaga, Katy Perry, Michael, Madonna, Aretha, etc… and if you want to compete for the top prize you must reach in to the hat and sing what you grab. Sounds easy? Not really since you might grab someone you love, but most likely you’ll be singing Vanilla Ice, but man is it fun to watch. For a charge we bring our 7×10 screen and our 7000 song Karaoke library and you can sit back and watch the carnage begin. This is way better way to watch Karaoke, instead of being tortured by a bunch of wannabe’s who take thier selves way to seriously, this way people get to have some real fun. So enjoy my little video of some of the Dolby fun, and oh yeah the song is a Mashup called “Follow Me To A Wonderful World” (Elijah King vs. Louis Armstrong vs. Uncle Kracker vs. Bruno Mars vs. Rich & B*tch).

Gaby’s “Wicked” Bat Mitzvah – Santa Monica Pier DJ

So I’m still trying to catch up with some of the past parties of 2010, and here is some more footage from a very creative and fun Bat Mitzvah at the Santa Monica Pier. If you familiar with the carousel at the Santa Monica Pier then you know what a cool place this is to have an event, and if your thinking about it, make sure you contact Jim Harris and he will hook you up. Tasty Sounds was picked for this event because Joanne Jellin ” the Grandmother” saw us in 2007 at Marissa Weinberg’s Mitzvah at the Calabassas Country Club and still remembered what a great time she had and wanted the same for Gaby, so we helped bring it all together. A big part of Gaby’s life was her passion for Broadway, Theatre and her friends who are associated with it, and we worked on making sure that we highlighted various moments throughout the evening, which is what a good DJ should do, (it’s not always about the dancing!).

Orange County Mitzvah DJ at the Turnip Rose in Costa Mesa

Orange County Mitzvah DJ

Hannah Katz had her Bat Mitzvah at the Celebrations Room in Costa Mesa, which is under the Turnip Rose Umbrella, and it was a very magical afternoon. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this location yet please go see it and talk to Chrissy Sherbanee who is the Director of Special Events, and if your short on time watch the video, because I was trying to capture every angle possible. Chrissy and her staff are amazing and the effort they make will create a really smooth event. The Tasty Sounds crew are always on top of it, but these guys take it to the next level, (in a good way). Also on the party was one of our favorite Photographers Ron Levy, who always makes our day much easier. Go check out his website, and yes he’s in Orange County, but all my Los Angeles people should be checking him out, he’s that good. And finally Hannah & the whole Katz gang, what a great family. Hannah is like a young Selena Gomez, very poised throughout the whole day, not a misstep (even in 7 inch heels). Mazel Tov to everyone involved, including one of my new DJ’s, Francis who recently moved here from Hawaii (an amazing battle/Scratch DJ) who got to participate in his very first Mitzvah. Now go watch the VIDEO!!!!

Woodland Hills Bridal Show & Newport Beach Mitzvah Faire

Well it has been a busy week for the Tasty Sounds Crew, we did a Bridal show in Woodland Hills on Sunday and exhibited at a Temple in Aliso Viejo/Newport Beach last night. I definitely see an all around lower turnout than in previous years, (I think I talked to 5 people last night) but at least (almost) everyone was Cool at both shows, and we appreciate everyone who stopped by our booth to talk to us.

The “Two Party Chix” Company – (949-766-9921, Linda & Rochelle) put the whole Bar/Bat Mitzvah show together at the Temple Beth El of the OC last night, and squeezed us in at the last minute. Big thanks to the both of them for all their hard work.

Another big thanks goes out to the “Here Comes The Brides” crew for a year of great shows in a very tough time. Sunday was the last show for 2009, and Winston was a huge help all day long. Micki and Elijah are the creators of this Bridal Event, which I think we handled 12 stage fashion shows for them in 2009 (whew!) The two of them and their great crew bring a very successful show to the Los Angeles area, and we look forward to the new & improved 2010 season, along with all the models & vendors involved in this show.
