Meet our first presenter Brian Buonassissi aka DJ Brian B.
DJ Brian B is an industry veteran of 20+ years. His DJ roots were born as a nightclub open-format DJ. Eventually, “private events” is where he found his niche and a passion for them was born. From corporate parties, to fashion shows, to weddings, Brian has taken his mixing skill-set and delivers party experiences unlike any other. “There’s something about private events that make it more personal for me,” he says. “Usually they are a once-in-a-lifetime party (wedding reception) and I get an opportunity to be a part of something they will remember forever. That gives what I do purpose and goes beyond just mixing music.” He caught the eye of Hollywood and soon DJ Brian B started mixing celebrity private bashes. The list of high-profile clients include Elton John, P Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Gweneth Paltrow, Tony Hawk, Jim Carrey is Here, ESPN X Games Skateboarding, and the Dr. PhilShow to name a few.

He spent a few years working for Pioneer DJ as the marketing manager (which including the execution of launching the groundbreaking CDJ-1000). Over the last year and a half, Brian has begun giving back to the industry with talks at various tradeshow and industry functions as well as writing for publications such as Disc Jockey News and Promo Only, Inc.
