DJ Mendoza (Canada)

DJ Mendoza is one of the most sought after DJ’s in Calgary. From night clubs to salsa congresses and anything in between he amazes his audience with his ability to keep the dance floor packed. Bernard is particularly known for reading the crowd during his sets and directing his music towards his audience, while feeding off their energy. With over 9 years of experience, Bernard strives to make each set unique by combining current Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba music with the quality and nostalgic beats of the past.

In 2003 Bernard’s love for the music first came from the love of dance. Before becoming a DJ, he was a performer for Salsa Mecca and Salsa Rica Dance Company based out of Calgary, Alberta. As with most beginners, he began to throw small Salsa Parties throughout the year for the University of Calgary Student Dance Club, which eventually grew to become one of the top salsa events in Calgary. Soon after he began donating his time to DJ fundraisers throughout the city, like Salsa for a Cure and Drop In and Dance for the homeless, just to name a few. Soon DJ gigs came rolling in after that and he played in most of the major salsa/bachata events all over the city and across the country, such as the Calgary International Salsa Congress, Expo Latino After Party and The Toronto International Bachata Congress.
