**Best of 2022 award winner on The Bash**
Hi I'm Tim Lacatena, a DJ, Saxophonist, and Emcee based in Los Angeles. From Super Bowl LVII to Villa Medici in Rome to tech conferences in Silicon Valley, my aim as a DJ is to ensure audiences have an unforgettable and electrifying night! With over a decade of experience in the world of high-end events, I've DJ'd globally and across the nation for private and corporate clients such as Super Bowl LVII, Google, Gucci, Adidas, NEOM Saudi Arabia, Dreamforce 2023 (Salesforce), The Emmys, Variety, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Montblanc Madison Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Moët & Chandon, VMware, Zillow, Pure Storage, Slack, NFL, Philadelphia Eagles, The Venetian Las Vegas, Buster Posey, and Maria Cusumano. My work has taken me to Italy, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, Hawaii, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Austin, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Miami.
ENHANCE THE EXPERIENCE WITH LIVE SAX (OPTIONAL)
Elevate the DJ experience by incorporating me on live saxophone into my DJ set.
I appreciate music from every genre/era, and love crafting sets that offer a wide range of styles, ensuring something for everyone to enjoy. I’m a big fan of uplifting remixes, classic throwbacks and moments where everyone is singing along to timeless hits. I love nu disco, funky house, electro pop and Saint-Tropez vibes. Plus, I mix in tons of gems from different decades and popular Top 40 jams. I'm versatile, thrive on reading the room in real-time, and can curate the music to suit your event's musical tastes.
BEYOND THE DECKS: MY ARTISTIC JOURNEY
Apart from music, I began my creative journey as a ballet dancer and actor. This path eventually led to roles in films and TV shows, including "Step Up," "500 Days of Summer," and Disney's "Kickin' It."

"Tim was incredibly professional and easy to work with, from the moment I got a quote from him through the event itself. He was very punctual in his response, very amenable to our playlists requests, and kept the energy up at our event without being obtrusive or too much. It was exactly what we wanted from the DJ. And, his playlist was incredible--loved all the choices he played throughout the night. Highly recommend him as a DJ for events." - Corey A. - Toyota Mirai Event, Petersen Automotive Museum, LA, CA
