Best Local Resident DJ - 2014
Bree DeLano, aka DJ88, has been DJing for 18 years. DeLano's residences have included some of the biggest hotels & nightclubs that decorate the Las Vegas Strip and her event client list is a who's who of fashion, technology, hospitality and the entertainment world. DeLano has also become a musical muse for fashion houses to high end restaurants and hotels as a result of her diverse taste and gift for reading a room.
Her business and creative acumen have paved the way for a multidimensional career spanning far beyond the DJ booth. She began her professional path in music and events in 1992 as a player in the music scene in Los Angeles working her way up the proverbial ladder from promoter and event curator, to freelance writer, to artist development and management. DeLano became known for her ear for new talent, music curation, and an eye for creative direction, marketing, and branding.
Bree's love of music and history working with DJs led her to pursue a career as a DJ herself in 2003. In 2006 she moved to Las Vegas and built a reputable DJ brand as the first female headlining DJ with major nightlife residencies, various accolades, and a diverse demographic of high end event clientele. Her success is attributed to switching lanes between intimate bars, major nightclubs, and branded events via her arsenal of music, work ethic, and 20+ years in the music industry. She built her brand taking risks and infusing the epitome of cool into her live DJ sets, while still giving the masses what they need, navigating a new path for female DJs.
That journey led her to the opportunity to become one of the only female music directors in Las Vegas at the revered downtown music venue, Insert Coin(s) where she had the creative freedom to build out branded events and program the music she loved while constantly introducing new genres and artists to true music lovers.
DeLano is a respected ambassador of the Las Vegas music scene. As music director and brand manager for Insert Coin(s), she created a fresh new downtown music scene in an intimate venue bringing various genres of music to the forefront in a city that is primarily known for EDM and major nightclubs.
Always expanding her brand, DeLano also became a re-occuring on camera Music Correspondent for MORE Access, Las Vegas' version of EXTRA. After four years at Insert Coin(s), DeLano launched her own live music series in which she produced, hosted, and DJ'd called "Pop-UP LIVE" which was named "Best New Party" as well as "Best Concert of 2016" for Anderson.Paak's first Las Vegas performance.
DeLano has opened for Imagine Dragons, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Lady Antebellum, The Roots, De La Soul, The Foreign Exchange, Hiatus Kaiyote, Damian Marley, and Sean Paul, to name a few. Her accolades include; "Best Resident DJ", "Best Variety Venue" for her role as Music Director at Insert Coin(s), and a "Power Player" in Vegas nightlife.
Aside being known as a DJ & Music Director, DeLano is a published writer, accomplished painter, culinary fanatic, HGTV addict, and animal rescue advocate. She is respected not only for her career, but also for her philanthropic work for animal rescue/adoption awareness. As a personal passion, she has raised more than $80,000 for various animal-rescue organizations.
In 2017 DeLano relocated back to her hometown of Los Angeles, although she will always call Las Vegas her second home and continues to work in both cities.
DeLano is not JUST a DJ, she is a creative force.
MUSIC DIRECTION & CURATION
Aside a successful DJ career, DeLano is a music curator and was one of the first female entertainment directors in Las Vegas. She has curated soundtracks for fashion houses, restaurants and hotels for the last 17 years. Her insatiable passion for music and need to constantly challenge herself led DeLano to take an entertainment and creative director position in 2012 at a venue in downtown Las Vegas named Insert Coin(s). Insert Coin(s) was video game centric venue, the first of it's kind for Las Vegas, in which DeLano incorporated a DJ driven and live music element earning her various accolades for her music programing, resident DJ team, and artist bookings.
From icons to emerging artists including Anderson.Paak, Anna Lunoe, Brand Nubian, De La Soul, Hiatus Kiayote, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Just Blaze, Lefto, Mick Boogie, Nick Catchdubs, Pete Rock, Rich Medina, and The Foreign Exchange., DeLano's vision to bring a diverse line up of artists and DJs to Vegas donned Insert Coin(s) one of the best music venues in the city. In 2015 she launched "Pop-Up The Series" a pop-up party and intimate full scale live music series with a rotating cast of DJs, artists, and musicians earning the series a "Best New Party" of 2016 award by The Las Vegas Weekly and "Best Concerts of 2016" for POP-UP LIVE which featured Anderson.Paak's first Las Vegas performance.
DeLano's 20+ years in the music industry as a seasoned professional, a successful DJ career, and vast experience in artist relations give DeLano an advantage that most Music Directors can't bring to the table. DeLano is a visionary and is fueled by a creative conceptual mind that has proven to transform ideas into valuable and memorable experiences. From talent bookings, to building teams of DJs, to music programming & curation, DeLano's love of music has taken her career to a new level expanding her brand far beyond a successful DJ career.
