This New Year’s Eve, celebrate like the stars of 1966 at NYE 2017: The Black & White Ball. Inspired by Truman Capote’s legendary affair of a party, the gorgeous evening at the Hyatt Regency includes sparkling spectacles and three rooms of top DJs playing disco, dance, funk, top 40, old school, house, and soul.
DJ Brownie began DJing when he was 14. With humble career beginnings, Brownie made it happen with just a basic Radio Shack mixer and two CD players that were different models and had no pitch controls. His first gigs were DJing dances for his high school, and then later on the alumni would invite him to DJ parties. Beyond that, other acquaintances would go on to work at clubs in the Twin Cities and St.Cloud and get him in on gigs, including an 11 year stint at The Red Carpet Nightclub. Over the years, he’s moved from playing Top 40 and popular dance tracks to incorporating more house music and influences from his wide array of musical inspiration, acknowledging that “being a fan of different kinds of music won’t make a bad DJ good, but it can make a good DJ better. That enthusiasm and passion for music definitely shows when you perform. “ While he ditched the dual cd player set-up for professional equipment many years ago, DJ Brownie’s motivation remains the same–seeing people have a good time on the dance floor.
