"The Bay Area's DJ Looney Tunes"
Born in 1975 .. Looney grew up in the era of vinyl, 8 track tapes, break dancing, and the birth of hip-hop.
Having a strong passion for music, collecting records, hip-hop, and old school animation .. Looney was quickly inspired by the likes of Cameron Paul, DJ EFX, DJ Prince Ice, Michael Erickson, Mr. Mixx, and DJ Joe Cooley.
It wasn't until 1989 (at the age of 13) that Looney began his journey mixing records using a belt drive Technics, a belt drive Pioneer, and an Atus mixer.
From humble beginnings to high school parties to mobile gigs .. Looney began to make his mark playing the best beats of the 70's, 80's & 90's for the next 11 years until beginning family life.
In 2010, Looney returned from his hiatus and teamed up with DJ Boywonder to become a part of Start From Scratch DJz.
Since joining Start From Scratch, he has played an integral part of the crew through DJing, music direction, promotions, as well as booking and hosting musical artists.
Looney has played such venues as The Foothill Lounge, The Elegant Pub, Sunset Bar & Grill, Milano, Liquid Lounge, The Derby, as well as many private and upscale events.
Specializing in old school, funk, miami bass, freestyle, old school hip-hop, classic house, latin house, reggae, bay area, hip-hop, r&b and so on .. Looney Tunes continues to keep the old school alive and remains dedicated to educating his listeners with rare and forgotten tracks.
