VIDEO JOCKEY TOM YAZ
Since he was a teenager, VJ Tom Yaz has pushed the pop culture envelope.
It was at the advent of the MTV revolution when Yaz, just a teenager, saw the possibilities of video as an entertainment medium in clubs and at special events. By combining his vast knowledge of pop culture with his technological prowess he's become one of the most sought-after VJs. Whether it's in one of Boston's trendiest clubs or on board one of the world's largest cruise ships, Tom Yaz provides an eclectic mix of the old and the new.
Boston-born Yaz is unique in his profession having at his disposal an enormous library of historical clips that pre-date MTV. He mixes them with historical sequences from movies and television to create a dynamic entertainment experience that crosses generations in appeal. Yaz-TV isn't just a night of Top 40 clips - it's an interactive experience that shows everything old is new again.
Since he arrived in 1981 on Boston's world-famous Lansdowne Street, Tom Yaz has been a mainstay in the New England club scene, including a 14-year run at Boston's Back Bay's popular Club Café where he set the standard for video entertainment. In Provincetown for the past 9 years he has made the Crown and Anchor's Wave Video Bar a must-visit nightspot that brings together tourists and townies alike. As the club's resident VJ he entertains spillover crowds with his innovative themed evenings, such as his hugely successful Stage and Screen Night. Any night with Tom Yaz leaves the crowd on their feet dancing and amazed at the extent of his video collection.
For the past three years he's become a regular entertainer with RSVP Vacations appearing on the some of the world's largest cruise ships during high travel season. On these ships YAZ-TV offers travelers a wide array of entertainment opportunities, from video streaming into the ships thousands of cabins, to dancing in one of the video bars or watching clips on the ship's stadium-sized Jumbotron.
Tom Yaz's talents extend to remixes as well. "My goal has always been to create a something unique that's my own," Yaz explained in an interview. "I want to recycle the great music from different generations and make it fresh and accessible for a room or crowd of any size or age."
YAZ-TV is portable enough to travel to small venues, as well as larger corporate-sized events. He has the talent and technology to turn any room with four walls into a video bar, and to preside over a unique and fun evening.
