Mortay Mendoza (DJ Mortay)
DJ Mortay is your friend. We know this because he makes friends with everyone. His silly nature and infectious smile have elected him the pseudo-godfather of both his Filipino and Mexican sides of his family. “A lot of my cousins look up to me and my aunts and uncles put me as their emergency contact at school. I started a family tradition fifteen years ago where every year, I take funny videos of my cousins and edit them together for us to watch Christmas Eve.”
He is known to break dance, ride in on a motorcycle, or surprise you with the sheer number of sports he plays. However, he’s not all charm and brawn- this DJ shows off his smarts daily at the Department of Agriculture and has even been published at the UCSF Anesthesia Department. Yet one of his proudest accomplishments is his recent marriage to his girlfriend of fourteen years! Of course, he couldn’t help but take the spotlight for fifteen minutes to spin his own wedding, “ Other than seeing my wife walk down the aisle, Djing was my favorite part! I gave everyone way too many glow sticks so my wedding turned into a rave”.
When he’s not getting active or basking in the glory that is newlywed love, you can find DJ Mortay scouring the Internet for new house music. His obsession with electronic music hit him like a freight train in 2008. He started sharing his tastes and when people became increasingly receptive, he hit the decks. “I’d always liked to make friends and entertain people so combining my love of music and performing just seemed right.”

“My wife and I used Verducci for our recent nuptials. All our interactions with their team were great. We went with DJ Mortay and we were delighted. He was an all around terrific guy who we really enjoyed spending time with. He was also very organized. We met at our wedding venue and we worked together to set a timetable of our reception. He was SO helpful in helping keep things on track. We were able to pick lots of our own songs, but we left a lot of it up to DJ Mortay. No problem for him keeping it lively and keeping people on the dance floor till the end.”

“Verducci Events has been absolutely incredible. My husband and I first discovered them when we were looking for wedding DJ’s. It was such an easy choice – they were personable, professional and organized (something every bride looks – or should look – for). We hired Mortay and couldn’t have asked for a better DJ/MC. We didn’t have enough budget to hire a wedding planner or day-of coordinator and Mortay went above and beyond to stick to the schedule we had made. The event went exactly to plan and even our guests commented on how great he was.
Verducci is my go-to DJ/lighting/decor production company. I highly recommend, especially DJ MORTAY!!!.”

“Verducci Event Productions did an AMAZING job before, during and after my reception!! They are extremely organized and go out of their way to make everything exactly how YOU want it. DJ Mortay made the reception flawless. I didn’t have to worry about anything, because Mortay was on top of it! The Photo Booth was a big hit! I highly recommend Verducci Event Productions and DJ Mortay for any event!!!”
