From playing NYC’s top clubs (Funhouse, Studio 54 & Paradise Garage) to launching chart-topping artists (like Madonna), from running a successful record label (Jellybean Soul) and music-publishing company (Jellybean Music Group) to contributing music for hit films (“Carlito’s Way,” “Flashdance” & “Footloose”), Jellybean Benitez has done it all. And he’s still in game as a touring global DJ and as a programmer for Sirius XM’s Studio 54 Radio.
Be there at DJ Expo on Aug. 15 and hear how he made it to the top.
And if you want to catch some of Jellybean’s classic dancefloor vibe, come to The Casbah later that night when he’ll spin a set at the Pioneer DJ Official DJ Expo Closing Party. The late-night event will follow the Expo’s annual “DJ of the Year” competition at The Casbah, and it will herald the return of amazing video jock Roonie G to the Pioneer DJ fold, plus it’ll feature a special set from fellow America’s Best DJ nominee Fei-Fei. As always, expect plenty of prizes and gear giveaways from Pioneer DJ.
