Giuseppe Baccari, also known as Joey B, is a first generation Italian-American born in Philadelphia PA. Though growing up in a home where Italian and English were commonly heard throughout the day, Joey learned an additional language – music. Joey has been influenced by different types of music his whole life. From R&B and hip hop, to rock and metal, to dance and electronica, Joey has immersed himself in all genres. Inspired by this, he started out playing percussion instruments at a young age, and later applied his musical and audio proficiencies at being a deejay. It came second nature to him. At the age of 14, Joey bought his first pair of turntables and started out performing at private events such as weddings, birthday parties, and Bar Mitzvahs. Joey was also able to teach himself how to remix music on various computer platforms and mixing tables.
It wasn’t long until Joey started performing at night clubs and bars. Joey has worked at many well-known establishments in the New Jersey, Philadelphia, Bucks County, State College, and, Harrisburg areas. Along with doing private events and nightclub/bars, Joey has also worked in radio, producing mix shows at Penn State University in State College, PA.
With over 15 years of experience encompassing multiple venue types and genres of music, Joey is sure to know how to work in any environment with any type of crowd. His high energy mixes, knowledge of music, and ability to read and react to the “vibe” and energy of a crowd will make any party or event a memorable one.
