Meet DJ Irving Gil | 30A Bilingual DJ

If you’re having a private event in the panhandle of Florida, finding a 30A bilingual DJ is not easy. With Irving Gil on our team, we have you covered. But don’t let that fool you, being bilingual is not his only asset. Irving is one of the most hardworking and caring individuals you will meet (seems to be a common theme with our staff). Authenticity is the word we think of when we talk about Irving. He’s the real deal. What you see is what you get. He constantly tells our clients who have chosen him as their DJ that he will do everything in his power to make sure their event stand out and be the best it can be. If the event calls for standard announcements and great dance music, he can do that. If you want him to interact with the crowd and lead the latest line dances and make all of your guests feel comfortable, he’ll do that too.

Over the years, he’s found his most successful parties to be ones where he’s paired with clients that are looking for some type of interaction – not necessarily cheesy DJ stuff but just being warm, inviting and pulling out all the stops to make sure every guest (from 3 years to 95 years of age) walk away saying, “That was one of the best parties I’ve ever been to!” Being a father of three kids, if your event has kids in attendance and you want them to feel involved, Irving can make it happen. We have many repeat family friendly clients who ask for Irving specifically year after year due to this very fact.

Being from the Dominican Republic, we lean on Irving to keep our Latin music library up to date. As far as MC’ing goes, he’s done entire events in Spanish, gone back and forth throughout the night, switching between English and Spanish or kept all in English. He will work with you to make sure we get it just right!

Based out Crestview, we book Irving there as well as all over the panhandle of Florida. His event schedule has limited availability so to book him for your event, contact us today.

Meet DJ Josh Bausch | The DJ With The Golden Voice

DJ Josh Bausch: One Of The Good Guys

Fortunately for us, both DJ Josh Bausch and B-Boy Productions’ worlds collided and the match couldn’t have been better. The opportunity to find someone who not only has the ideal DNA of your company but also the skills to compliment it is a rarity, especially in the Wedding DJ industry. Let’s put aside his DJ skills for a moment. Josh is just a fantastic person. If you are lucky enough to have him as your DJ/MC, you’ve won the lottery. Josh has an innate caring nature that is evident from miles away. He doesn’t do things to stroke his own ego. There is no side agenda. Josh understands the gravity of the events he’s a part of and he approaches them as such. Nobody is more engaged and selfless in their preparation for each single event than Josh. Not only does that set up each event for success but it speaks volumes about his character in general.

As you will instantly tell when you watch and listen to his video bio,  DJ Josh Bausch has the golden voice that every DJ/MC would die to have. It is just God-given. That was an added bonus for us when Josh interviewed with our company. Usually, we don’t hire DJs or MCs with previous experience as we like to train from the ground up. Even if DJs have had years of experience, we still put them through our training program. Josh was willing to go through it with us and our company couldn’t have been better served to add such a great individual to our team. If we could clone Josh, we’d definitely consider it.

In the 3rd installment of our “Meet Your DJ” series, we hope you enjoy getting to know Josh’s humble DJ beginnings and learning a few unique facts about him.

Being a Fort Walton Beach local, we book DJ Josh Bausch there as well as in Destin and Sandestin for most of his events. In 2017, we are aggressively booking him at new venues in Navarre, Pensacola Beach to the West and WaterColor, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Carrilon Beach, and Panama City Beach to the East. To book Josh for your event, contact us today.

Palate & Palette | #BBOYGIVESBACK

Our #bboygivesback has kicked off with a flurry in 2017 and shows no signs of slowing down. We had an opportunity to once again work with Shelter House – this time for their Palate and Palette Event which took place at the Tack Room at Arnett’s Gulfside Ranch in Santa Rosa Beach. It included a five course dinner along with a live painting during the event. The musical soundtrack for the evening was live mixed by our own DJ Charles.

Palate & Palette Shelter House

The featured chefs were Nikhil Abuvala of Roux 30A, Tim Creehan of Cuvee 30A and Destin Ice Market 30A, John Engle of The Gulf Okaloosa Island, Jack McGuckin of Bijoux and Dan Pettis of Fuel Restaurant and One20: A Modern Bistro. Each of them contributed one course to the meal. Krutz Family Cellars of Sonoma County, California paired each course with wines.

The featured artist, Jon Moody, is based out of New Orleans and his work has been seen on the hit television show “Empire” as well as recognized by the White House. He created a piece of art during the dinner which then was auctioned off following the dinner by Chris Camp of Luxury Estates Auction Company. The winning bid was for $4,500. This inaugural signature event brought in just short of $18,000.

Musically, DJ Charles stuck with an urban chic city vibe. The playlist included songs like “Cherry Wine” by Nas & Amy Winehouse and selections from a few different albums: “Bright Moments” from Flamingosis and “Chasing The Golden Hour” from GRiZ. DJ Charles commented, “This wasn’t a dancing event but the music was crucial to its success. I went with a very groovy cocktail music style to start and would switch things up from course to course to keep the vibe fun, upbeat, and people wondering what was coming next.”

Meet DJ Dan Davis | One Of Emerald Coast’s Finest

Continuing in our series of “Meet Your DJ” posts, Meet DJ Dan Davis. He is one of our most senior DJs on our Florida Division staff, having been with B-Boy Productions since 2013. When he first started training with us, it was apparent that he had an aptitude for the music and technical part of DJ’ing. It was his natural, laid back demeanor that had us wondering what his stage presence would be like. Turns out all we needed to do was give him a microphone. Dan is a natural entertainer! Very little coaching was needed as he is acutely aware of what is happening at an event and what is needed to take any event to the next level. His quick wit and ability to read a crowd is such an asset for our clients who want every guest to feel included in the celebration at hand.

Dan has led our team in events worked over the last two years by a wide margin. He’s always the first to raise his hand to be a part of any event where a DJ/MC is needed. This past year Dan helped us build up our local nightlife business with weekly residences at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach, FL and at AJs Seafood & Oyster Bar in Destin, FL which was voted #36 on Nightclub & Bar Magazine’s Top 100 in their most recent list.

In 2017, Dan will continue to play weekly at the Red Bar but he has a renewed desire to focus on our private events. His reviews speak for themselves. If you want a DJ/MC who will put his heart and soul into your event, you can’t go wrong with DJ Dan Davis. Even if it falls outside the realm of what he has been hired to do (he’s been known to help caterers with setting up the food area, wedding planners in wiping down chairs, and holding lighting stands for photographers), Dan is there for you. To read more about Dan and see his reviews, click here.

Dan is booked primarily on 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, Grayton Beach, WaterColor, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Carrilon Beach, Panama City Beach and Destin for the majority of wedding events. To book him today for your event, contact us today.

Giving Back Initiative | Fun at Shelter House’s Brunch and Bowl

As part of B-Boy Productions’ #bboygivesback initiative, we are partnering with Shelter House, a domestic and sexual violence center, for many events in 2017. Our first Giving Back Initiative event of the year with them was their inaugural “Brunch and Bowl” event held this past January. This particular event raised more than $6,000. DJ Shawn Frady spun music for this event as those who attended enjoyed a fabulous brunch, unlimited bowling, a silent auction and of course, amazing music! It was held at Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl and Grill located at the Destin Commons in Destin, FL.

The bowling was a fun-filled competition featuring some of law enforcement’s finest from the Walton County Sheriff’s Office and the OCSO Sheriff’s office as well as Century 21 Blue Marlin, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Paul Hughes Family Foundation, Wine and Wenches, Vieno Investments Agency (VI-A), Wesley McGrail & Wesley and RLI.

DJ for the event and General Manager of B-Boy Florida’s Division, Shawn Frady, commented, “A hearty brunch, bowling, music and raising money for a fantastic non-profit organization. I’d say that’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning.”

Meet DJ Shawn Frady, your next Wedding DJ in Destin

Virtual Introductions

Because the majority of our clientele are considered “destination” clients, it makes it tough for them to meet their DJ/MC face to face prior to their wedding day. As a result, we thought it would be great idea to start a series of “Meet Your DJ” posts.

Pictures and event video footage are helpful, but what is your DJ REALLY like? What’s their personality type? How do they talk “off the mic”? Our management and sales team do a great job of pairing our headliner entertainers with the right couple, but sometimes the client wants to be the one to pick the person charged with handling what is arguably the most important day of their life. With that, we’ve partnered with Silver Shade Studios to put together some bio videos of each of our headlining DJ/MC staff.

Meet DJ Shawn Frady…

Today’s featured event DJ is Shawn Frady. Shawn is based out of our Emerald Coast of Florida office. He is an associate DJ and has been with B-Boy Productions since 2013. While weddings are our bread and butter, Shawn has done just about every event type imaginable – from weddings to corporate events to non-profit functions to fashion runway shows and even house parties, his experience and ability to tap into what the event calls for separates him from the majority of DJs not just in the local area but the country. To read more about Shawn and see his reviews, click here.

Shawn is booked in Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, WaterColor, Santa Rosa Beach, Sandestin and Destin for the majority of wedding events. To book him today for your event, contact us today.

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

30A DJ Josh Woeckener Promoted to Associate DJ

Our last promotion this winter out of our Florida Emerald Coast office is Josh Woeckener. He will be our go to 30a DJ and is being promoted to an Associate level DJ/MC. We love Josh’s story. He was actually a client of B-Boy when he and his wife, Rhoda, got married in 2013. Since then, he has joined our team as a DJ/MC and has blossomed over the past few years.

DJ Josh WoeckenerB-Boy Productions’ Florida General Manager, Shawn Frady, commented, “Having been seemingly grafted into the B-Boy fold, Josh has been one of the fastest rising talents in the area, leaving little doubt that this DJ/MC understands customer service. If you are looking for a polished experience coupled with the ability to ‘Get Down On It’ look no further.”

While we cover the entire panhandle area of Florida, Josh will be primarily based in our 30a locations – Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, and WaterColor. In other words, he is going to be our go to 30A DJ. That stretch of area demands excellence and we have full confidence that Josh will more than deliver.

For more information on Josh, be sure to read his bio here.

If you’re looking for an event DJ on 30A, Josh is your guy. To book Josh, be sure to message us and assuming he’s available, we’ll be glad to add him to your event.

Charles Egstad Promoted To Associate DJ in Destin FL

The 2017 promotions are aplenty at B-Boy Productions, Inc.  In our Destin Florida division, DJ Charles Egstad has been promoted to the Associate level headliner DJ/MC.

DJ in Destin, DJ CharlesOver the past 5 years with B-Boy Productions, Charles has gone from A/V technician (running our ceremony kit, lighting fixtures and other A/V gear) to strictly DJ’ing with a headlining MC to most recently being a Jr. Associate headliner DJ/MC.  Clients have taken notice and are requesting Charles specifically on a very regular basis.  Last year, he took another step in his progression as he was selected to be our nightlife resident DJ at McGuire’s Irish Pub of Destin where he played for the area’s largest Ladies Night every Thursday in season. In addition to nightlife and weddings, Charles also became our “go to” high school dance DJ/MC. As a result, he’s become a DJ in Destin who is in very high demand.

According to General Manager Shawn Frady, “Charles has been a local to the Emerald Coast for nearly half of his life and although he hasn’t had much life to live as of yet, this up and coming DJ/MC knows how to throw a party! He brings an awesome blend of experience, youth and passion to any event. This promotion is well-deserved and I have no doubt that we’re hitting just the tip of the iceberg of what his capabilities are.”
