DJ B-Dizzl3 at Parties, or MC Brian when Entertaining at Weddings and Formal Events. Before deciding to Open Black Hills Mobile Music in March of 2015, He's had Music in his Veins Since Elementary School. He was Drawn to learn Trumpet in 5th Grade and could "hit the high notes" naturally.
Continuing into Middle School, Brian added to his repetoir and education of music theory by starting into Jazz Band and an intro to Marching Band.
As a Freshman in High School, He was Chosen to be 1 of 510 Representing Wyoming in the 2000 (Y2K) Rose Bowl Parade with the Wyoming High School All-State Marching Band (WHSASMB). For that Parade he was given, and played, the music that the First Chair or Lead of that section of Instrument which was normally given to Juniors and Seniors. During that time he was Also First Chair Regularly in his School Band playing Trumpet.
The Following Year as a Sophomore, WHSASMB invited him back to perform in the Inaguration Parade to March in front of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney in Recognition of the VP's Alma Mater to the University of Wyoming. During this time, Brian's High School Director Placed him into the "Varsity" Advanced Jazz Band of the School.
Brian's Junior and Senior Years of High School seen him at or very near "1st Chair" Regularly in Concert Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, & Pep Band(musical Cheerleaders during Basketball and Football Games).
After Graduation, however, Music wasn't pursued as a Career for Brian. . .yet. Imagining the "Broke Musician" stereotype, Brian instead Studied and Received his CDL Class-A and Pursued Driving Semi Truck, Marrying Amy in 2006, and included a Move to Rapid City, SD in Late 2007. Music wasn't in the fore front, but It never Left and was always there during the Long Trips. Over the Years It would rear its head every now and then with the occasional Karaoke Night and urge to Dust off the Old Trumpet.
