attended over 30 events organized by Jeff Tateosian and Taddy’s Tunes. He’s probably one of the most creative people I have ever met. His ability to mix music and fun makes Jeff’s events “the place to
be.” Jeff put together a “once in a lifetime” Softball Tournament at AT&T Park for all the six Burlingame Elementary School Dad’s
Clubs. From the moment we walked in the park for warm-ups, to the point we approached home plate to our own
“walk-up” music, Jeff covered all the bases. It was a great day for a few hundred Dads who were able to
participate. It was about the camaraderie, but Jeff nailed it, providing a great tournament with amazing
entertainment, music and commentary on the Park sound system throughout the day. He also coordinated a
40th Birthday “Celebrity Roast” for me. Jeff arranged the entire
program. He recruited six of my best friends and put together a two-hour show where Jeff was our own (emcee)
Dean Martin. His creativity made the event an amazing success. Three years later I still run into people who
talk about the Roast and the dancing. They inevitably mention how great of a job Jeff, “the man in the puffy
shirt,” Tateosian did. Anytime I need to put together a big event, Jeff is the
first person I call. His organizational skills, creativity, energy and sense of humor will enhance ANY
type of event imaginable.
Peter and I just want to say a great big THANK YOU for the great job you did on the music
for our son Scott's wedding on June 20th in Tahoe.
This was a smaller wedding, and we knew it might be tough getting folks to dance. But you did an outstanding
job of putting a playlist together that fit the bill to a T. Everyone commented to us how great the music was and how it made the wedding so much
fun. You truly knew how to please every age group. And that is the key for a wedding!!!!
We also thought you did a wonderful job of "master of ceremonies" so to speak. Scott and Elisha needed to
have someone get them organized as to how the evening should flow and you did a superb job of helping them
think about that. You played such a key role in just quietly moving things along without being overbearing.
Once again, thank you so much for a wonderful event. As you know, my goal was for people to party, dance and
have fun - and they truly did. GREAT
Patty & Peter N.
wanted to drop a note to commend your performance for our group last week. Of the many DJ's I have hired
over the years, no one comes close to putting on a show like you. Your
Decades Party was unlike anything I've ever seen. You started everyone off
with a few 50's & early 60's, then through the Psychedelic and early 70's Classic Rock songs, to the
Disco era, New Wave, Big Hair bands, then to the 90's Club and today's current popular hits. I can't believe
how magical your playlist "Through the Years" was. Just as entertaining as the music & dance, was
how you helped transform the "theme" with your 5 decade costume changes.
We really felt like we were living through the last fifty years of music (both sight and sound). I heavily
recommend this theme to anyone looking for a unique theme and for any group that loves to dance. Thanks
Jeffrey with Taddy's Tunes provides more than just great
music - although great music is certainly always delivered! I have been an event planning
professional for over 25 years - producing corporate events as well as family events and weddings. It is easy
to assess - from the minute an event begins - whether the DJ/emcee has a connection with the audience. If the
connection is achieved the success of an event can quickly climb from good to outstanding. Jeff spends the time
and "does the homework" for all of his clients. He works to understand precisely the intention of the music,
program and ambiance. Jeff is a serious professional who loves his business and very much enjoys himself along
The Washington Dad's Club Sock
Hop party was one of the many themed parties
that Jeff has provided DJ services for. Party-goers from the local elementary school were in
full costume and the venue was fully decorated by Jeff with props from the Sock Hop era. Jeff included
50's/60's trivia games to keep the crowd entertained and organized musical skits ahead of time for those
that wanted to participate (and many did!). The event was very lively and fun for all.
than a decade, I’ve had the pleasure of attending many events and parties in which Jeff Tateosian was MC, DJ
and overall planner. From Back-yard Socials to 1000-person Formal Events, Jeff’s preparation and attention to detail are unparalleled
and his energy level unwavering. My experience with Jeff
is that he works closely with each client to thoroughly understand the objectives for their event and then
translates this into a comprehensive plan that covers all aspects of the entertainment. Jeff is amazing in
his ability to read the room – knowing just the right time to play that certain song or when to make
announcements that re-focus’ the energy across the guests – thus, ensuring that
everyone who attends comes away with a great and memorable experience!
Tateosian was the DJ at our Wedding and did a fabulous job! He is
very experienced, well organized and kept the reception moving at the perfect
pace. His knowledge of the business is so helpful when planning out how you want the event to go. His
presence was fun, enthusiastic & professional. Our guests enjoyed the music and personality thoroughly
and I recommend Taddy's Tunes wholeheartedly! Thank you Jeff!!
Mike & Amanda
Taddy Tunes is the what, what! I have been associated with Jeff and his DJ
abilities for over 6 years. I have had the privilege to see Jeff supply
the music and appropriate trivia from everything from the 70's Parties (ABC,
Bad Bad LeRoy Brown, Pick up the Pieces), to Toga Parties (Louie, Louie, I
Fought the Law, Twist and Shout), to his famous Hollywood Parties, to the
today's top hits (Boom Boom Pow, Just Dance, Jump). Jeff's knowledge of music is expansive and appropriate
for the occasion. He has mastered the art of providing just the right amount of
entertainment for his audience and his timing is impeccable. Taddy Tunes...brings the party to
I just wanted to thank you once more for all your help with the BCE Dinner Dance. Everyone loved your music. The dance floor was
really packed. Additionally, I appreciate all the ideas, advice and encouragement you gave us throughout the
planning phase. You were always so helpful and positive about the changes we decided to make. I think our
experiment proved to be a success.
Kerry B. (BCE Co-Chairman)
We just wanted to send our sincerest thanks for making our Wedding absolutely perfect. You went above and beyond to make our day special.
Our guests keep raving about the music and how packed the dance
floor was all night long. You made it a point to come up to us throughout the night to see if
there was anything else we needed. I truly appreciate that and everything else you did for us.
Mike & Terra
Jeff for the 75th Anniversary Celebration at PTC to act as both a Master of
Ceremonies and later on as a DJ for the dance party. The evening could not have been
more fun. The sound system is magnificent, the choice of songs is endless and with Jeff in
control it allows you to relax and enjoy your party. If your event requires a professional with that
special attention to detail then Jeff is your man.
I highly recommend DJ Jeff Tateosian. I have had the pleasure of attending several events
where Jeff has been the DJ entertainment. Jeff is professional,
personable and an expert at music selection, emcee services, music presentations and dance music to name
a few things. He is very approachable, friendly, easy to work with and has just the right touch for any
situation that I've seen.
Brian W. (San Francisco Booking Agency)
Jeff can make people from 5 to 50 get up and dance. He can make people feel comfortable dressing
up as pop icons, and his pop quizzes are worthy of Jeopardy! The musical selections range from the obscure
to the most well-known. Jeff has a knack for building on the energy
of the crowd...or creating that energy. He loves what he does, and it shows. The
80's Retro Party was a perfect example of all
the above. Unlike the 50's, 60's, and 70's, most adults at the event (all, I hope!) were alive in that
MTV decade. So, you have to impress them while making a connection with the kids...So clearly Thriller,
Madonna, and Boy George were mixed in with The Fixx, Spandau Ballet, Joan Jett, and others. Once the
music and games kickoff, the party is off and running. The ultimate compliment is that nobody wants to
In addition to Jeff being a great guy whoÝwas incredibly easy to work with,his DJ services were flawless. At our rehearsal dinner and on wedding day, Jeff providedÝan
excellentÝselection of music that was an ideal match for the occasion and our guests. We would absolutely
recommend Jeff, without hesitation!
Jeff Tateosian did an absolutely incredible job of pulling together Burlingame's AT&T Park Softball Tournament in October
of 2007!!! I've not worked with anyone better than Jeff in terms of planning, coordination,
team-building, consensus-building, thoroughness and passion. The event could not have been the HUGE
success it was without Jeff's leadership. On top of it all, Jeff was a fantastic Master of Ceremonies, emceeing the entire event with music and one-liners.
Thanks Jeff, for a day we will never forget!
On behalf of the Burlingame Community, I would like to recognize the outstanding talent, fun and
commitment of Jeff Tateosian. His excellence and ability to plan
coordinate and run a fun-filled musical event are the best available. Jeff has a gift for
guaranteeing that the event is enjoyable for all, whether it is a 1,000 person fund raiser or a musical
themed evening. I have attended many of Jeff's themed events as well but the 80's Retro Party is hard to forget. Jeff consistently exceeds my expectations for having
It's certainly not a party without you mixing the tunes and getting everyone dancing! Your endless
selection of music from any genre is amazing. I know you had some pretty obscure song requests from both your
60's Summer of Love Party & the
70's Disco Night over the past two years, and
you actually had those songs in your repertoire!! Where do you find that stuff? Everyone loved playing
the Music Trivia Contest, it got everyone involved.
Our party was a huge success mainly to your services. I would highly recommend you to anyone in need of a
DJ/emcee/activities director all wrapped into one!! Thanks Again.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff and his DJ service several times. Specifically, Jeff
provided the entertainment for a 60's Decade Party
sponsored by Washington Elementary School Dad's Club in Burlingame, California. The event featured an
evening of 60's decade memories, including dance, costume, and music trivia contests. Jeff has a great knack
for getting everyone, young and old, involved in his events. His era- appropriate costume changes are legendary. I have nothing but positive
comments about his work and gladly recommend him to anyone interested in having a great time.
Awesome entertainer! We have used DJ Jeff of Taddy's Tunes on numerous occasions
for parties at our homeand have attended other
events, many of which were theme-based, where the DJ was Taddy's Tunes. . .every single time it was a night to remember. We especially
love that the older people, young people, and just everyone are on the dance floor all night. Jeff
definitely knows how to keep the crowd entertained and going all night long. We haven't been disappointed
Taddy's Tunes have been rolling off Jeff's tongue for many years here in Burlingame. Jeff, as
Master of Ceremonies for the Opening Day AYSO
Event captivates the crowd, young and old alike with such ease as if he were born to
this. He introduces the players, coaches and dignitaries as if
everyone was there for their own special day. He has a passion for performance. That's Jeff
Jeff, I don't know if I have told you already, but you did such a great job with the
Class Reunion and emceeing on Saturday night.
You were amazing the way you kept things flowing and
interesting....you made it REALLY fun. I cannot thank you enough and I had a ball working
with you......such a pleasure. Big Hugs.
The music and DJ can either make or break a party. Jeff Tat does an excellent job of selecting
music appropriate for the occasions and getting the guests on their
feet rockin'! In my 11 years as an active member at the PTC, Jeff's productions are fantastic
whether it is a Hawaiian Pool Party with island
music or a formal black tie Awards Dinner. In his role
as Master of Ceremony, his enthusiasm and sense of humor add a dimension that late night TV hosts would
As emcee and DJ for our Green Street Fair in
Burlingame, Jeff was a pro! He transformed our formerly quiet little event into a community celebration.
His music selection, announcements, and plugs for sponsors kept everything running smoothly and everyone happy.
Needless to say, we've already reserved him for next
Jeff, thank you for making our Company
Party so festive and fun. We couldnít have done it without you. I now know why they call
you the "theme-party specialist!"
Jeff conceived a very special 50th Birthday Party for me,not
only DJ'ing great music from his huge catalog but also acting as Master of Ceremonies for a very creative
"This is Your Life" revue. Jeff recruited many
old friends of mine to contribute to the show. He's a natural
entertainer, very funny and fun-loving, and he knows thousands of songs, movies and TV
shows to assemble into just the right mix for a variety of events. I can highly recommend him for any
party, dance or celebration!
I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for all your many years of fabulous service
to our community. I have called on you to provide music at so many events I can hardly keep track of them all.
For more than eight years you have been our Master of Ceremonies at our annual Renaissance Faire and have always come through with great
humor, terrific music and complete and utter support and flexibility. Our annual School Picnic was always the best in town because of the
music you brought to the table! When asked to step in at Burlingame Intermediate School's Annual
Bash you didnít miss a beat (no pun intended) and stepped up to the plate to make this
annual event a huge success. I cannot think of anyone else who
can deliver what you bring to the party! Although my years at Washington Elementary
are coming to an end, I am looking forward to working with you at many more events in our future
together. Thank you for everything and please always use me as a reference.
Thank you Jeff for Saturday's Block Party.
We wish July 4th came twice a year. Hope you are with us for a long long time. You
rocked the house last night. I have been told, more than once, that this
may have been the best year yet. They loved having night dancing and the grooves were groovy. Your
Grape Stomping contest just like we used to
see on I Love Lucy really got things started off right. We had much more multi-generational
participation. I liked seeing my youngest out there! Let us know if you have any local gigs that we can
crash. We are always looking for an excuse to cut a rug!
Tateosian handled the music for my 40th birthday party and did a fantastic
job. He played the music from each era of my life!! He got everyone in attendance to participate in the
group dances as well as making it walk down memory lane.
He also did quite a bit of research andfound some stories in my past that
worked with some of the songs that he played. Overall the party was a huge success
and fun was had by all!!
Mr. DJ, you were freaking
awesome! The whole night was great and everyone was dancing the whole night. You totally
have a DJ voice - you should have been a game show host.
Jeffrey, I can't say enough good things about
you. Thanks for creating such a memorable Wedding Ceremony &
Reception. I've already recommended you to my other friends that are going to be getting married.
We love you and your work!
Steve & Debbie C.
We have hired Taddy's Tunes for the last two years to DJ/MC at our house for the Washington School
Dad's Club End of Year Party. Approximately 75 people
attend this event each year. Taddy's Tunes engineered a first class audio system that was scaled perfectly
to match our back-a-yard setting (clear, crisp sound with good dynamic range, yet not overpowering to the
neighbors!). Taddy's Tunes coordinated music for the cocktail hour and dinner that created a wonderful
atmosphere for conversation and dining. Also, Taddy's Tunes MC'd the requested announcements throughout the
evening to keep the event flowing smoothly and allowed us to take the microphone for recognition speeches.
After dinner, the music stepped up a notch as Taddy's Tunes played old favorites, current hits, and met
guests' requests for songs that got the crowd dancing into the wee hours. Taddy's Tunes provides a great, flexible and reliable service. We look forward to next year's party. Of course, if you need a referral, do not hesitate
to use us.
Rob & Maja
Need more than a D.J.? Jeff's your man! He know's exactly
what to play and what to say to get the entire crowd going (parents and kids)! He's always
reliable, dependable,Ýand easy to communicate with. It's been a pleasure working with Jeff the past couple of
Spring Fling's at Burlingame Intermediate
Eva Wong - Co-Chair Spring Fling
Jeff, thanks again for helping to organizing our big celebration. You were such a huge part that
I'm sure our guests will remember the music and dancing more than
what they came here for. Your talents made for a most excellent time for all. We feel very
lucky to have found you.
Jeff, Thanks for a great night and for being a willing
and flexible partner in making the BCE Goes
Disco vision come to life! I forgot to warn you when we first met that sometimes my best
ideas come in at the last moment and I appreciate your going with the flow. I, like you, am confident that the
people who attended had a great time.
