(JT) Jerry Topete
Event Coordinator | DJ | Manager
I have been into music for the last 32 years (Don’t ask how old I am. LOL). Started back in High School with close friends in the bay area (South San Francisco).
I discovered early in life the power of music and how it influences all of us. I also discovered soon after that I could get paid for doing this DJ thing, and that if I play music for everyone “ages 2 to 100” and not just for myself I would most likely have a repeat client, and so it started.
I’ve had the privilege of playing for crowds of 10 to thousands of people and I have the same philosophy with all, they are the same paying customer, so they deserve the same energy from me. As a DJ we really feed off the crowd and when they engage and are having a great time, I’m also having a great time.
My all-time favorite song is, Mariachi song, “El Son De La Negra”, it goes great with a shot of Tequila, plus it brings back lots of great childhood memories. I now sometimes listen to classical and opera music while I’m driving just to change it up and have my brain take a break. I am all about the details when coordinating your event. It is the most important day of our client’s life (At the time) and I always strive to deliver exactly what each client envisions.
I look forward to meeting new clients and building new relationships.
Life is a party and I’ve been feeling like that for most of my life. A fun and life time reception, HaHaHa!
Allow me to be your Event Coordinator, and your Guide thru a seamless event “Where You’ll Feel Like A Guest At Your Own Party”.

Not going to lie, I have some killer dance moves, specifically The Sprinkler.
I like all and any sweets, and that has provided me with a taste tester title for all sweet-tables. My vision is Candy land and I will make sure it’s delivered!
