SPECIAL NOTE: For those of you who are not familiar with Marla Diann or those who have attended our past events and would like further clarification, here is why she is on the founding leadership team and hosting our events with Robert, Juan, and Drew.

It was Juan and Marla who approached Robert in January 2023 to join them in a volunteer crusade to level up the SoCal Performance DJ industry due to a lack of support and education in the southern California region. There was never a monetary purpose to the volunteering effort. It has and will be a giving back to the industry.

If business is generated among the members due to the educational and networking events we provide, then we have accomplished our intention to grow the industry.  

In addition to being close friends and a business and sales coach for Robert and Juan, Marla comes from over 22 years in the entertainment industry as a publicist for celebrities, visual and performing artists and talent manager prior to her 16 years in coaching creatives.

She guides a variety of creative entrepreneurs in the event and wedding industries how to build and monetize a personal brand and upgrade their mindset, decision-making, business structures, leverage strategies, and sales systems while increasing their revenues.

Entertainment, the arts, and creativity are in her DNA. She comes from a family of creatives who are all in some form of artistry in the entertainment industry. From screenwriters, filmmakers, theater directors, actors, musicians, costume designers, authors, chefs, and performers, she has lived creativity her whole life. Her artistry is writing, visual arts, talent development, and human potential.  

Her uncle, Jules Chaikin, was a renowned musical contractor for Grammys and Latin Grammys and a long-time contractor for major recording artists over a 50-year period before his passing in 2012.

All this to say, she is passionate about continuing to learn more and support visual and performing artists. She has coached and mentored about a dozen multi-op DJ and live music entertainment companies nationwide since 2014. She has been a featured speaker at Wedding MBA, WIPA’s online webinar series, ABC’s national conference, and many entrepreneurial virtual and offline events.

She is in Level Up for the betterment and innovation of the SoCal DJ industry bringing her 38 years of entertainment and entrepreneurship to our community as a resource and inspiration to each musical artist.

We hope you can make an effort to help her feel welcome in the community and initiate a conversation at our events that could support your business ideas and growth.
