Orange County knows how to have a good time. There are the beaches for the day and nightlife galore—especially for the music lovers out there. When you think of the Orange County music scene, a lot of alternative, surf and reggae rock comes to mind. And you would be correct.
WeAreTreo (We Are Tree-oh) is here to get that sand out of your ears.
The DJ collective consists of Ace Future, Trevor Shawn and John-Gregory. Ace and John met Trevor at a RVCA event and the rest is history. After coming together, a vision began to take shape with not only their music, but signature Orange County good vibes, a “cruisey” lifestyle.
Part of that is increasing the brand beyond just electronic music. It’s a lifestyle. WeAreTreo collaborated with DVS in creating a shoe that you “can wear while scoping waves, or while playing a show.” And it’s this kind of dedication that is causing heads to turn and gigs to fill up. When people come to see WeAreTreo, they expect an unforgettable party.
As Ace puts it, “We spend our time surfin’ and just makin’ great tunes.”
These OC boys may surf by day, but by night, they are one of the most sought after DJ acts in Southern California. And that love has permeated the state’s borders. WeAreTreo has had residencies at Hakkasan, Jewel and Wet Republic in Las Vegas, OMNIA San Diego and E11even Miami. You can still catch them at these and other clubs across the US.
Back when they were still trying to make a name for themselves, they were lucky enough to play certain smaller venues on a consistent basis. It was there they learned about limits on good times. After one friend was banned from that club on two separate occasions, WeAreTreo learned good times are all about balance.
WeAreTreo even brought their movement to Asia during August and September. As the guys say, “People are hungry for it and we are happy to bring it to them.”
Turn it Up: While the trio specializes in electronic music, their personal tastes run the gambit. For instance, Ace is all about the country music. And while his bandmates aren’t too keen on that, Trevor works to drown it out with some old school TLC to set the mood right.
Homeward Bound: These DJs may have played across the world, but they’ve also kept it local playing at venues like TIME Nightclub.
