Life & Work with Teejay Tatum (DJ Cheddaloco)

Today we’d like to introduce you to Teejay Tatum (DJ Cheddaloco).

Hi Teejay, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’ve always had a passion for music since I was a kid. It has been a thing in my family for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I’ve always enjoyed entertaining people. From helping throw parties to hosting my parties and events. I began to take my craft seriously in 2018 when I started an entertainment business called “Big Truck Entertainment,” where we offer all of your party needs, from deejay services to Photo Booth services. We travel anywhere we’re needed, and we specialize in all types of events, from Weddings, Birthday parties, and Corporate events.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I wouldn’t say it was smooth, but every struggle was a lesson. One of the biggest struggles I experienced was getting people to give me a fair shot. I had more people telling me no than yes, which was sometimes discouraging. But I kept my head high and never gave up staying consistent and believing in myself. I knew it would eventually pay off, and it continues to do so.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a DJ and love helping people have a good time. I love watching the crowd’s reaction to each song I spin into the mix. I specialize in creating vibes for all types of genres of music. I am known for the masks that I wear during my sets. I have various masks, including some that light up with colorful LED lights. I am most proud that I get to pursue my dreams and have fun while doing so.

Any big plans?
The plan for Big Truck Entertainment is expansion. I plan on expanding services to more states and cities. That will also allow us to create more jobs and intern opportunities for those interested in Dj’ing or the entertainment business.
