Successful entertainers always study what is in demand so that they could continue to give their audiences what they want. But it’s not enough to know the trends; the entertainer must be able to deliver them. It’s that delivery that brings everything together. Brian Stanley, professionally known as DJ B-Love, has mastered the art of “giving the audience what they want.” B-Love has been working as a DJ for over twenty years with no signs of slowing down.
B-Love started working as an MC when he was only seventeen, growing up in Scotch Plains, NJ. He always had an entrepreneurial spirit and he started his own promotional company with his friends at a young age. They named their promotional company The Black Phoenix, but as B-Love grew as a performer, he eventually branched out and started working independently. He eventually joined forces with PT Entertainment later in his career.
DJ B-Love had his fair share of personal difficulties along the way. He grew up without a father figure, but in some ways, that served as a motivation, because he knew he needed to be successful so he can help provide for his mother. Any time personal matters distracted him from practicing or performing, he always reminded himself of his goals, and that would put B-Love back on track.
“I had faith in God, and I had faith in my own abilities,” said B-Love. “And I knew that combination was going to keep me strong. I just kept pursuing the dream.”
Having performed and developed a solid following throughout several markets – including New York, New Jersey, Las Vegas, and Chicago – B-Love is ready to spread his talents on a nationwide spectrum.
“I worked with many Real World reality stars and for the Girls Gone Wild series,” B-Love noted. “I also hosted my own Friday afternoon radio show in Illinois for Kiss FM. And I hosted a live concert at the Prairie Capital Convention Center that featured groups like Pretty Ricky, Twista, and Ebony Eyes. I’ve been blessed with some great work, and I’m on the cusp of breaking through to the next level.”
DJ B-Love’s advice to aspiring artists would be to remain self-confident, know your history, obsess over your craft, and strive for perfection. He lives by those guidelines himself, so there is no doubt that the goal of national success is in the cards for this talented entertainer.
