An 8 hour, 2 Room celebration for our 8 yr anniversary!


We are honored to have shared the gift of music as MOM DJS for 8 years, in over 33 cities and with a family that is worldwide.

This is bigger than than us, this is everything. We thank you, we love you!


MOM DJS started with a humble beginning and a modest goal. The founder, Donovan Hall (aka DJ Gordo Cabeza), was asked to curate a night at Madrone Art Bar , one of San Francisco’s neighborhood venues. He decided to create a night he called Motown On Mondays. (MOM SF) The concept was to have a weekly event on Mondays that featured the music his mother raised him on … Motown, and make it a unique experience that had ‘family’ as it foundation. Donovan invited his close DJ friends to share their take on the Motor City and soul sound each week. MOM also offered original video footage from the golden era of this music and even hired a chair-masseuse. After its first year MOM SF’s attendance resembled a weekend night. What distinguished this crowd from the weekenders was the consistently positive vibe and attitude of the revelers, DJs and staff.

Today MOM DJs is headed by Donovan Hall and Timothy Ryan (DJs Gordo Cabeza & Timoteo Gigante) with the assistance of a small design and marketing team. We produce weekly events in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Austin along with being featured at many festivals and one-offs each year. MOM DJs is inspired by a creative movement that honors artists like Stevie Wonder, The Supremes and Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, and Mary Wells. We travel on the shoulders of these musical giants while celebrating and preserving their achievements for generations to come.

Smoked Out Soul
Smoked Out Soul
Smoked Out Soul is a lot of different things: It's a mixtape, It's a team of remix producers, It's a bi-monthly party in one of San Francisco's hottest nightclubs: Monarch SF, and it's a live show complete with a DJ mixing funk & soul loops and remixes in the moment, layered with live drums, horns, guitar and percussion. They take remixes and make them organic again live!

Smoked Out Soul is the perfect act for festivals. They appeal to both live music lovers and electronic/hip hop fans. Ring leader Zebuel Early is the guitarist for Afrolicious, Mama's Cookin, The King Tide, The Dub Labratory, Alligator Spacewalk, and more. He is also a well known producer of bass music, hip hop and reggae. Will Magid has played with Bonobo, Erykah Badu, and Pretty Lights to name a few. Drummer Paul Oliphant plays with Afrofunk Experience and has toured with the likes of DJ Logic. With the groups combined connections in the music scene and ability to smoothly improvise, they are great at pulling fellow artists from festival lineups to join forces, forming an all-star act of heavy hitters for late-night sets and daytime parties as well.

They were a favorite at Symbiosis last year and are booked to play Lightning in a Bottle this summer among other festivals and clubs in the California region.

"I was so hyped last week from your show! I've heard a lot of funky deejays but your sound really bumps! Maybe its because you are cueing up a live set, but damn it is hard to come crazy and original now that the funk has so many "standards" in play. The Stax, JB's, Aretha, etc... But I dig the way you play with them all. And then the guitar licks really come in sweet!" - Rickey Vincent - KPFA Radio Host of "History of Funk" and author of "Funk: The Music, The People and The Rhythm of One".
