Chase Pado is a very talented and experienced San Diego event pianist. He found his passion in classical music at a very young age. As his musical knowledge and experience expanded, however, he found many new worlds in pop and jazz standards, drawing from the shows of Frank Sinatra and Elton John, while also studying the specific styles of great pianists like Hank Jones, Vince Guaraldi, and Chick Corea. Chase currently studies jazz piano at the University of California, San Diego, under Kamau Kenyatta. He has also studied under the experienced jazz pianist Danny Green, saxophonist Stan Lawrence, and trumpet player Les Kepics. “The style of my playing is certainly unique. I’ve played in rock bands, ska bands, and jazz bands. I compose my own acoustic and electronic music, and I am constantly seeking out new styles to study and perform.” This approach has allowed Chase to play for all sorts of events, from big concerts to intimate restaurant gigs. His focus is always to play for the audience, so whether it is a crowd of ten or thousands, Chase’s experience delivers every time.

Jason Brown is an established San Diego wedding saxophone player. He has many influences, such as Gospel, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Classical and Country music. Jason Brown began playing the sax at church events and his audience was so overwhelmed with his playing that they told his mother to put him in the studio. At 16 years old Jason recorded his first project called "Jason's Beginning." Since then his saxophone is his best friend and Jason squeezes every last drop of emotion from every song he plays. Jason retorts: "I understand how it feels to be a kid with a dream of wanting to do something great and my dream is to inspire other kids, musicians to go after their dreams. When I perform, I am in my comfort zone and I always connect with my audience." Please contact DJ Charlie for Jason’s music samples and booking information.
Dan Gonda is a young and talented San Diego event saxophone player. In addition to cocktail hours and dinners, Dan is available to play along with the DJ during dancing.

He consistently works hard to expand his repertory and make sure the horn section is best represented by learning the parts of all of the horn section members on alto, tenor, and baritone sax. As of March 2011, he has been learning flute and clarinet from a local LA session musician and attending a jazz ensemble class at The Colburn School to expand his musical talents and increase his demand as a musician.
