B-Boy Productions Launches Aggressive Non-Profit Initiative: #BBOYGIVESBACK

2017 marks a definitive marker in history for B-Boy Productions, Inc. For years, B-Boy has supported and been a part of non-profit projects that came across our desk. It’s been a fabric of B-Boy’s DNA. However, for the last year or so, a concerted effort has been made to do more and drill down to find “perfect fits”. This year begins an aggressive non-profit push with the #bboygivesback initiative. Each of our DJ/MC staff has committed to doing a minimum of 1-2 events per year. With over 12 headliner entertainers, that’s almost 2 dozen events.

#BBOYGIVESBACK

Brian Buonassissi, owner of B-Boy Productions, Inc., says, “One of the calling cards of our staff has been a desire to bless others with the talents we’ve been given. The #bboygiveback initiative is laser-focused to partner with non-profits that are a perfect fit with what we can bring to the table. In many cases, a lot of the benefiting organizations have been ones we’ve helped for years under the radar. We want to do a better job of promoting the non-profits we work with so others can hear about their mission and potentially get involved with us to make a difference”.

Some of the 2017 projects chosen:
*Shelter House: Brunch and Bowl (January 21st)
*The Birthday Party Project (February 16th & 21st)
*UWF: Dance Marathon (February 18th)
*Boy & Cub Scouts: Pinewood Auto Show (March 4th)
*Emerald Coast Autism Center: The Hole In One Event (March 10th)
*Shelter House: Purses With A Purpose (March 21st & 22nd)
*American Cancer Society: Bark For Life (April 1st)
*American Cancer Society: Relay For Life (April 28th & May 5th)
*Emerald Coast Foundation: Father-Daughter Princess Ball (May 19th)

“We’ve always wanted to lead in our industry – not just with excellence in paid events but also in a philanthropic capacity. Our desire is to do what we can to benefit these amazing organizations”, Buonassissi said.

If you have a non-profit project in mind that would benefit from our services or you would want to be a part of one we’re connected with, be sure to message us and we’ll get in contact with you as soon as we can. #bboygivesback

Eden Gardens Wedding | Keith and Kimberly

What’s not to love about an Eden Gardens Wedding?

If you’re looking for a place in the Florida panhandle that is magical, an Eden Gardens wedding is as close as you’re going to get to it. There are a big couple “ifs”…

  • If it’s not in the summer where there is no air to let the humidity out
  • If it’s not in the winter where you and your guests freeze to death
  • if it’s not raining (which happens 90% of the time in Florida) and you’re walking through a swamp

While the weather forecast changed by the day for Keith and Kimberly (initial reports earlier in the week showed a complete downpour), by the time the wedding day hit, it was perfect. Towards the evening, the temperature dipped slightly but not enough to cause any issues. Wedding attendance for a destination wedding in the panhandle typically averages about 100-125 people. For this one, we had upwards of 180. The wedding venue, however, has plenty of acreage to fit just about any guest count.

All about the details

Kimberly contacted us with less than 2 months before her wedding day. With us (B-Boy Productions) and two of our three sister companies, B-Boy Rentals and Event Design (coordination) and B-Boy Photo Booths, we jumped right into it and helped make this wedding come to life. Kimberly is very much like myself (Brian) in being OCD and into the details. We immediately clicked and worked extremely close between our two insane travel schedules (Kimberly lives in Alaska and commutes weekly all over the country and myself, well, if you know me, then you know that airports are my second home as I perform events across the country). For this event, I put on my coordinator hat (which I love to do) and we made some magic happen.

2016 Holiday Music B-Boy DJ Playlist

2016 Holiday Music… B-Boy Style

‘Tis the season and if this picture of one of our own, DJ Shawn Frady, doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit, we’re sure our 2016 Holiday Music B-Boy DJ Playlist will. Almost every genre is represented here. You can stream all of our picks for FREE with Spotify by clicking here.

2016 Holiday Music

The Holiday Music Playlist Details

We started it off with a jazzy throwback track from 1993 called “Tinseltown” by Ronny Jordan. This is a staple in our holiday party cocktail hour sets and has that holiday feel without being a true holiday song. Keeping the instrumental vibe, our next entry is “Wizards In Winter” from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s 2004 album, The Last Christmas Eve. DJ Josh B contributed a cool blend of “Winter Wonderland” and “Don’t Worry Be Happy” off of Pentatonix’s latest holiday album featuring Tori Kelly.

Holding down the old school hip hop is DJ Irving G who selected “Christmas in Hollis” by Run DMC. We throw it back even further to John Lennon’s classic “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” courtesy of DJ Dan Davis. Our resident crooner expert, DJ Josh Woeckener, added in Michael Bublé’s duet with Shania Twain of “White Christmas”. Want some holiday R&B? No problem – DJ Jae Richie gave us a few! The Boyz II Men version of “Let It Snow” has harmonies for days. He also selected the Temptations’ “Silent Night” and Chris Brown’s “This Christmas” to round out the genre! How about some high energy EDM holiday music? DJ Charles contributed the “Carol of the Bells” version by Papercha$her. The breakdown is pretty sick!

How about a little top 40? DJ Brian B brings us the iconic Mariah Carey holiday track “All I Want For Christmas” with a twist – an appearance by Justin Bieber. If you’re a Sam Smith fan, his version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” is something you’ll love. DJ Rhoda Woeckener rounded out our initial holiday song picks with the classic “Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole.

Check the playlist often as we’ll continue adding tracks all month.

Destin Beach House Wedding | Rafael & Jenni

 

Can you have a Destin Beach House wedding with 200 guests? Jenni and Rafael’s wedding proved that you absolutely can. Being locals, they had the advantage of scoping out of the site and deciding to use two rental houses that were next door to each other. This allowed them to create different “venues” for different portions of the wedding. The day started off perfect. There was not a single cloud in the sky and the October temperature was nice and cool with very little humidity. The beach ceremony set-up looked amazing.

Irving Gil, our only bilingual DJ/MC on staff, made all the announcements in both Spanish and English due to the blended ethnic cultures being represented. Due to the guest size, we brought in one of our other headliner DJs/MCs, Jae Richie, to assist Irving. Being a former semi-professional dancer, Jae taught some of the guests how to dance to salsa, bachata and merengue so everyone felt included. Everyone had a great time. This was the perfect staff pairing to bring this wedding to the next level.

Reception Formality Music

    • Grand Entrance (Bridal Party): “Beautiful Day” by U2
    • Grand Entrance (Bride and Groom): “Happy” by Pharrell
    • First Dance: “At Last” by Etta James
    • Mother/Son Dance: “In My Life” by The Beatles

Some notable songs of the night are: Treasure by Bruno Mars, Vivir Mi Vida by Marc Anthony, and Kulikitaka by Toño Rosario. These songs made everyone go crazy. People were dancing the entire night; from before dinner started till we had to stop at 10PM. We love Latin crowds because the music makes everyone want to get out of their seat. We wish Jenni and Rafael a happy and blessed life!

New Sample DJ Mix by Brian B

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good DJ mix? Especially for the gym, work, commuting, house parties, pre-game, etc? Well, our own DJ Brian B has put together a Sample DJ mix for you utilize however you’d like.

A good DJ Mix is a Swatch of Sound

Often, we get clients who ask us for samples of our work. One of the advantages of going with B-Boy DJs is that we all have such a wide variety of mixing styles, etc. While this particular mix isn’t indicative of exactly how your event would be mixed (we have a diverse clientele that we customize for), it is a good example of Brian B’s styling. As one client put it, “Brian knows how to arrange music.” He has a knack for weaving tempos, crossing genres, creative transitions, custom editing and mixing “smart” by using wordplay and other techniques in his bag of tricks. This mix is a perfect example of why you’d want to hire a DJ rather than go with a Spotify playlist or an iPod for your event. You just can’t replicate a lot of what DJs do by simply having access to a “song list”.

Sample DJ Mix by DJ Brian B

In this particular mix, he’s put together 40 songs within a 75 minute time-frame. It’s primarily Top 40 based with hits from the Summer as well as this Fall’s Hits with a ton of custom mashups and his own edits along with a few throwbacks. Trust me, you will definitely move to this one.

If you want to download your OWN FREE copy of this (as well as past B-Boy DJ Mixes), you can do that through iTunes by clicking here. You can even subscribe and the mixes will automatically appear in your feed when released.
