Our History

Jose HerediaBorn in 1973, in the bustling metropolis of Mexico City, Jose Luis Heredia began his musical journey as a mere listener. His parents migrated to Los Angeles, like many others, looking for the American dream. Growing up in the sleepy southeastern suburb of South Gate, Jose was touched by music in many levels.

His father would expose him to a guitar and a synthesizer, other than a few basic melodies, Jose never learned an instrument. It was until high school where he was formally introduced to music to which he failed to master the simple and uncomplicated rhythms of the snare drum. Yet, he did not give up.

The music of the time provided him opportunities to be exposed to school dances in the gymnasium and reveal to him his true life calling. To be a DJ. This calling was reinforced by throngs of females swooning over the DJ as a ultimate music god. His dream was fraught with great peril. His persistent day dreams were much too powerful to convince him otherwise.

Blanca & Jose, circa 1991.

After graduating high school, he moved to Sacramento CA, to live with his future wife Blanca. They met in high school and forged a strong bond that still exists today. His future brother-in-law had mentioned that they should buy some used DJ gear from an uncle in San Diego and start a DJ business.

A long car trip later, Robert, Blanca and Jose arrived from San Diego with a pair of used speakers, a new complete DJ system they got on credit from Astro's and  stacks of CD's and Vinyl they purchased using Blanca's mother's credit card. They were ready to embark on their DJ adventure and start their DJ empire.

The quebradita dancers, circa 1992.

Their popularity grew among the Hispanic community of Sacramento with the help of a dance craze called "La Quebradita" and the reputation of bringing hot new music styles from LA. The company they formed DJ'S Satisfaction, became busy with many events, often incorporating "Quebradita" dancers.

Their business dwindled after many years and Blanca and Jose eventually married and had their first child in 1996. His work background was vast, including stints in the retail, sales, debt collection and the car rental industries. His interests now focused on a career in the motion picture industry, computer animation to be precise.

So Jose and his family, moved to Los Angeles to pursue his new dream of working with a major motion picture studio or special effects house. He enrolled in a two year course in the prestigious UCLA Extension program and supplemented his income by working part-time at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

To supplement his income, Jose decided to dust-off the DJ equipment and book events to earn extra cash. Soon, the bookings were more frequent and required more attention. Shortly after receiving his certificate from UCLA, he was forced to decide whether to continue to work in Hollywood or maintain a DJ business full-time. Visiting a local chapter of the ADJA, solidified his decision to become a full-time business owner of a mobile DJ company.

Latin Musicology

Jose immersed himself in the DJ industry by becoming a member of the ADJA, attending Mobile Beat conventions in Las Vegas and continues to serve on the board of OCoCA as chpater President. He created a seminar series and presentation called "Latin Musicology" to which he spoke in-front of other DJ's from around the world, educating them on the basics of Latin music.

In late 2005, he forged an alliance with Wedding Professional Services that would fortify his scope and acumen. Managing, cultivating and expanding the business with many wedding professionals from around the area, they began to produce Wedding & Quinceañera Expo's in local malls throughout Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties.

As host and producer of such shows, Jose was an integral part of a team that managed several shows in the Los Angeles and Orange counties that involved many hours of pre-planning, installation of large audio and video presentations, coordination of bridal and Quinceñaera fashion shows and interacting with the show attendees as Master of Ceremonies.

As our nations economic tides changed, so did Jose's future vision. In July 2009, the advance of streaming media, Satisfaction Entertainment diversified into LIVE video streaming as added service. First integrating such technologies during a residency at Jewel City Bowl, Jose began to stream Rock Band Tournaments and Friday Night Mix Shows with music videos.

The Crossfader Show Logo, circa 2010Soon after, the possibilities of capturing video and transmitting them live via the internet became very apparent to Jose as he fulfilled a childhood dream to be a field reporter. He decided to stream from Mobile Beat 2010. That experience of being able to interview DJs and cover an important events in the industry led him to start the first LIVE streaming DJ talk show in the world.

The Crossfader Show began in February of 2010 with a couple of DJ friends at Satisfaction Entertainment headquarters. With informative content, riveting interviews with some of the DJs industries most notable personalities and the ability to reach a worldwide audience, the show is a regular staple and has covered events such as Mobile Beat Tour 2010, Winter NAMM 2011 and MBLVXX.

Live video coverage of public events were soon added such as Mitzy Expo, Japan Tsunami Fundraiser, Dancing With The Buena Park Stars, Disco Retro Nights and OLG Fiesta 2011. The continuing growth of video streaming has now been a viable option for many private events as well such as Quinceañera de Jasmin Velle and South Gate High School Class of 91 - 20 Year Reunion.

American DJJune 2012, Jose joined the workforce and now works at American DJ as a video producer. He continues to be on the fore front of the latest DJ trends and is heavily involved in the DJ industry by producing, hosting and developing content for ADJ and family of companies such as Elation, American Audio and Acclaim.

The future looks bright for Satisfaction Entertainment as development for online content and entertainment projects continue to grow. Working for the world's leading DJ lighting manufacturer, Jose is on the bleeding edge of technology. With so many advances, one thing remains at the core for our company, to provide premier entertainment services to our clients. This still rings true today, as it did in the beginning.
