Hey America! — As if the summer temperatures weren’t hot enough already, the volcanic energy of Los Angeles-based DJ Timbo — party host and master of the mix — is coming to a town near you. The Go Go Girl Tour was put into motion earlier this month and continues to pick up steam as the rolling celebration crisscrosses the country. Known for his frenetic personality and incredible charm, DJ Timbo (mild-mannered Tim Scarne by day) hopes that his tour can help club-goers forget their troubles for a few hours and just have some pure, unadulterated fun.
“I’m not going to call myself a humanitarian or anything,” laughs the 30-year-old writer, director, producer and sometimes actor. “But it seems like every time I turn on the television there is something else to get you depressed. Our show is all about life and how to love it.”
The tour kicked off in Denver and ends in Los Angeles, but not before heading as far east as New York. The tour is also being filmed for a documentary and is named after Scarne’s single dance hit “Go Go GIrl” as well as after the femme fatales that often join him on stage. In addition to the movie, Scarne is keeping a blog on his website, www.djtimbo.com, recording the trials and tribulations of life on the road.
Scarne has been spinning and composing since his was 13 and incorporated himself at the wise old age of 19. He is not, however, neither jaded nor ungrateful.
“I get to lead my life bringing joy to others through music, film dance,” he says. “I mean, c’mon; how lucky is that?”
