VZ Tango DJ Services
Victoria and Zak are both knowledgeable DJs who will custom craft your Argentine Tango milonga. Careful pre-planning, attention to the pulse of the evening and adapting to the energy of the room keep the dance floor filled and the dancers eager for more. Our library of over 6000 Argentine Tangos spans from the birth of the Tango to contemporary orchestras. We can craft your milonga in Traditional through Modern and/or Alternative or a mix of those styles.
Victoria has DJ'd twice-monthly milongas in the Reno-Taho area for the last three years, as well as guest DJing for Tango by the River in Sacramento. Victoria's experience as a vocalist lends the subtlety of key-association in and between tandas. Her philosophy for a milonga is to build and release the energy in waves, with the release just a little less than the build, so the whole milonga crests in the last tandas often filled with lush, romantic tangos so the dancers exit with a deep sense of connection.
Zak's researches into seldom heard golden age recordings of the classic tangos often let you experience the familiar from a fresh perspective. Zak has also produced numerous videos of tango performances at various festivals and famous tango studios. He began to DJ for practicas at Tango by the River in Sacramento in 2006, and has studied the history, styles, and interaction of the dancers with the music ever since. Zak enjoys blending the familiar with the unexpected so that the dancers have the thought, "I really want to dance to that!"
