About Dynamite Music

Welcome to tomdef.com -- the home page for Tom DeForest and Dynamite Music of Endicott NY.  You may fairly ask why the name of the site is tomdef.com instead of something more related to Dynamite Music.  It turns out that Dynamite Music is a very common name for DJs and sound services so many variations of that name were already taken.  People have known me at work by my userid of tomdef for years and years.  And that name was available, so here we are. 





The roots of Dynamite Music go back to when I was 10 years old in the fifth grade in New Berlin NY.  Mrs. Jager, a fifth grade teacher, asked me if I would be willing to learn how to run movie projectors so I could fill in when she was not available.  I agreed and she got me started.


One thing led to another.  I became very interested in ‘AV’ work and ended up doing a lot of it through high school. I set up and operated sound gear for dozens of dances, movies and parties throughout my high school years and received a special ‘For Service To Youth’ award from the school when I graduated.


I operated a DJ service as a business in Endicott starting in 1988, with expansion into  general sound services in 1995 and Audio Classes in 1998.  I stopped doing sound work in 2015.
