Why I am A DJ

Music is my way of life. From my early years as a pre-teen I was inspired by the music that was played in my home. Music was heard everyday, my mom appreciated a crossed genre of musical flavors; country, blues, jazz, soul, disco, and folk . Music played in the morning, while cooking, and throughout the entire weekend as family and friends visited.

My mom had a great connection and relationship with the record shop owners in my hometown of Waterbury, Connecticut. The shop clerks would call her on the telephone, she would call out to me telling me to put my shoes on, “we’re going out”. I was 10 years old in 1974. We were greeted by the shop owner and he and my mom would be talking about the new groundbreaking hit 45 rpm singles of the day. They would talk for hours as the music played on.

I listened!

We had a great time with DJ Lamont. He is so passionate and knowledgeable, and that really showed throughout. Great intro to both older style vinyl turntable mixing and newer technologies.

Brought my 16-year old godson for his birthday and he loved it. After an isolating year during the pandemic it was something offline that unique and special to engage his interests in person. DJ Lamont is a great educator and made the effort to reach my godson's interests and experience level. He has amazing energy, a real passion for music and made easy connections from instruments, to vinyl, to digital. The spot in the Mission district is a comfortable, clean and organized space with a great vibe.

He eases you into a rather complex world in a fun and engaging way. Very responsive to the tastes and interests of his audience.
