DJ 360
DJ-360 (aka Angel Rivers) is a SF Bay Area DJ and salsa dancer. DJ 360 first started DJing over 10 years ago, but after taking a long hiatus he blasted back onto the scene in 2009. Today he can be found DJing at salsa events all over the Bay Area including El Valenciano and Cafe Cocomo. Dj-360 is the only DJ in the entire San Francisco Bay Area spinning salsa music on vinyl (Real Spinning, as he calls it). DJ 360 plays a wide range of Latin music, including salsa, mambo, chacha, guaguanco, boogaloo, pachanga, charanga, and more. He also DJs other genres as well, including Mexican, American, and European music. The name “360″ comes from the salsa move of the same name.
DJ Fillmore Wax
From funky classics to the local Bay Area sounds to the bubble pop of DC GOGO congas, DJ Fillmore Wax knows how to keep the groove alive. This DJ has been winning new fans due to his non-stop dedication to spinning different types
of music and not replicating what other DJs play. With just a few years of experience, Fillmore Wax has been making
a name for himself, not just at the Fillmore or all of San Francisco or the Bay Area, but everywhere. People of different ages, races, and all walks of life can't get enough of his superb music collection.
