About tunedoctor

The Tune Doctor has had a long time love affair with music. He began playing music for people when he would make reel to reel tapes for friend's parties. He was also not shy about jumping on the turntable to put on a little Elvis when he was in college at UCSB. After a successful teaching and coaching career, Tim decided to pursue one of his true passions. He began acquiring his first set of DJ equipment and took a class to be a broadcaster on local community radio station KVMR FM Nevada City. He had an early morning show on the station for four plus years from 2007 to 2011 and is now a substitute broadcaster playing his own brand of "Free Range Rock". The Tune Doctor has been "in the house" playing music for parties and weddings for the past several years. He loves sharing the joy of music with other people and his boundless energy will keep the party going as long as you want to go. "Is there a Doctor in the house?"

Park City, Utah here we come!

Talk about road trips.  This was a great one.  The Tune Doctor, along with a fairly sizable entourage packed all the gear up into a UHaul trailer and headed back to Park City, Utah near the end of June for Amy & Erik Gaugh’s wedding and party.  The Swaner Eco Center was a gorgeous spot for a reception and the moon “fully” cooperated! Congrats, A & E!!  A stop in the Ruby Mountains on the way back to CA was a real bonus!

Have Tunes, Will Travel!

It was not your everyday load-in as the Tune Doctor took to the slopes and played for the Northstar ski and snowboard team fundraiser in March.  It was a really fun event with some great kids and the dancing was fiery.  We loaded up the sled with all of the equipment and were pulled by snowmobile into the mid mountain lodge at Northstar.  We’ll go wherever we have to go to play great music!!

Tune Doctor goes “out west” at Squaw Creek

The summer schedule kicked off in earnest on June 8th as the Tune Doctor played dance music for a Western gig at The Resort at Squaw Creek.  OK, so I’m a little behind on my blog, but there are still some great events to tell you about!  There were some line dances as well as plenty of rockin’ and rollin’!  It was a gorgeous Squaw Valley evening and people danced into the night at this early summer private party.  Kudos to The Resort at Squaw Creek for another fun and well run event!

Summer schedule kicks off with Grad Party in Santa Cruz

The lovely home of Kevin and Sue Waltz in Santa Cruz was the site of the kick-off event for The Tune Doctor’s  2012 schedule on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.  Their daughter, Claire had just graduated from her nursing program at San Jose State and a party was in order.  The weather threatened, but it ended up being a gorgeous evening with a full crew of Claire’s friends and relatives who enjoyed the taco bar as well as a plethora of beverages, and then did some really nice work on the dance floor!  Thanks to Kevin and Sue for giving me the opportunity to help out with this celebration and Congratulations, Claire!!!

The Tune Doctor hits the new year running!

Welcome to a brand new addition to the Tune Doctor’s website!  I have been looking forward to setting up a blog so I can keep you up to date on what’s been happening with the Tune Doctor for quite some time.  Thanks to Shane Hollon’s hard work and expertise this blog has become a reality.  Thanks, Shane!

2012 has not only been kicked off with my new blog, but also lots of bookings for upcoming events and lots of new music in the Tune Doctor’s arsenal (not the least of which is a fiery remix of Etta James’s “Something’s Got A Hold On Me/Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling!)  We also attended the Wedding Fair For All Season’s at the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City organized by Donna Hoekstra and Joy of Life Events.  Great job, Donna, and thanks again for all the hard work putting this event on.  The Nevada County based group of wedding related vendors, NCWEDS met this week for our bi-monthly meeting at Jim E’s Club 141 on E. Main St in Grass Valley, Ca.  Nice to get together with all the wonderful planners, caterers, photographers, graphic artists, and of course, DJ’s!  And we had some delicious appetizers from JIm E’s kitchen!

I look forward to working with all of you in the months ahead and, hopefully, meeting many more of you who are looking for someone to handle the music for your special event and who will work hard to make sure it runs smoothly and is truly an event to remember!
