I began performing live music at the early age of 10 in San Diego, California. I was a singer/songwriter and guitar player. I was in many bands from lead singer of rock bands, top 40 bands and acoustic groups. I managed to play
every genre of club.

After playing out live 7 nights a week, I decided to venture into the DJ industry! I began mixing music with vinyl, and to this day, I still have all my vinyl and love the feel! Of course, now my library consists of CD’s and
several digital systems. I trained with a strict military entertainer and performed at Officer’s Clubs and military bases up and down the east coast. Shortly thereafter, I did my first wedding and I was hooked! I love doing
weddings, because it is always a celebration with love in the air!

While doing weddings, I also continued to work in every genre of nightclub from Christopher’s which was voted the one of the top 10 clubs in the nation at the time to Hammerjacks, Hard Rock Café, Nashville’s, Padonia Station,
Impulse, Hurricanes and the list goes on! I managed some of the largest clubs on the east coast and was responsible for hiring the DJ’s, national and local acts, marketing and advertising commercials for the clubs. I also was
performing as a DJ for the clubs along with the other jocks I hired. As a live musician, I found I had a different “feel” for music then the average DJ, and I quickly made a name for myself in the industry!

I began Santana Entertainment about 20 years ago, and have rarely advertised throughout the years. Almost all of our business now comes from referrals, which is the best way to build a business!

I have worked with many celebrities and sports icons performing their own personal special events and continue to do so to date!

We specialize in multi-cultural events and music as well. Lighting packages are available upon request and customized to each event. Event planning and room setup is also key to a successful event, and we will guide you through this process.

Our success is due to experience, dedication, reputation, and our genuine passion for music! These qualities are reflected in each and every event!

I love doing weddings, because it is always a celebration with love in the air!

Santana Entertainment is completely operated by me!,  Santana Hahn, who is also a professional disc jockey and musician. We do not have secretary’s handling
our clients. They always speak with Santana personally. We find it is better to talk to someone who actually performs for a living when requesting information and directing inquiries about special events. Each client is able to work out all the details of their event with Santana, and then the client is set up with a wedding or corporate consultation meeting with the actual disc
jockey performing their event.

At the present time, Santana Entertainment has 5 professional disc jockeys as well as live entertainment such as string quartets, soloists with a variety of instruments available, string trios, vocalists, classical guitarists, violinists, flute, jazz bands, pianists, Latin bands and top 40 variety bands. The individuals are the best in the industry. Most of them have over 15 years of
experience and none have less than 10 years.

My associates are well-seasoned and are prepared to handle unforeseen circumstances in a professional
manner due to the years of experience. You will not find the tacky DJ approach on the microphone, nor will you find a DJ that is unable to play the crowd, which is extremely important to the success of an event. At the end of an event, our clients know their event was successful and memorable for their guests! 

I love all types of music! I’m a huge fan of live music as well given I was a singer/songwriter and guitar player since the age of 10!

I’m extremely passionate about horses! I’m currently studying Equine Guided Education which is a program for my rescue horses to work with battered women, victims of violence and abused children while creating music
to help facilitate the program. The horses are very intuitive, and they always know when one has had abuse in their background.

The horses are also going to be part of the facilitation for leadership and transformational programs. Thus far, they have rescued a female soldier from taking her life due to severe post-traumatic stress syndrome, and to this day, she is still engaged with the horses and living a more peaceful life due to their influence.

I am in the process of co-creating a program for women in which I will be facilitating music to touch the heart and soul while they enjoy the process of transformational growth, healing and peace in their lives.
