Long Islander Continues to Bring Communities Together Through Unique Events Pairing Celebrities and Social Causes

With His Full Service Event Promotions Agency Bumble B Marketing, Irizarry Continues to Host Star-Studded Affairs While Raising Money and Building Awareness

July, 2016 (New York, NY) — Having started his career in the entertainment industry at a very young age, Brandon Irizarry of Bumble B Marketing always had a knack for bringing like-minded people together to help create art, benefit the Long Island community, and raise awareness and funds for various social causes. Now, as the company has expanded into social media, branding, promotions, and public relations there seems to be a lot more in store for the man behind some of the most unique, entertaining, and socially conscious events in recent years.

Irizarry’s vision has been to unite communities, embrace humanity and, offer opportunity to our youth. Having been involved with music and entertainment since high school, he says of his first foray into the industry “I brought Razor, Guido and De La Soul together and Guido did their album in his studio. I started booking musicians like KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E Fresh, Little Vicious, Chubb Rock, Nice and Smooth and many more.”

At the young age of twenty-five, Brandon started an organic tree and lawn care company called Long Island Organic, and this is when he decided to bring together both worlds and become more involved with charitable causes. He managed to connect with the Breast Cancer Correlation in Huntington, speaking about the link between pesticides and breast cancer.

His business is all about giving back through celebrity-attended events. Brandon plans on bringing local communities and celebrities together through concerts, charities and a lot of fun events.

“The purpose of Bzarry Events to give back not only to my hometown, but to all of Long Island, one event at a time! What better way to give back to our community then to have charitable events that go right back to our local residents.”

As a full-service events company, Bumble B has branched out into not only event planning and promotions, but website development, social media, marketing, public relations, and graphic design. Through their creation of promotions, concepts and catchy slogans for political campaigns, fundraisers, and strategic media outreach, the company is able to GET RESULTS with newsworthy press releases and follow-ups with local media and press for adequate coverage. Nominated “Latin Star” by Fox News along with The Fox Five News Crew, Mike Woods, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rosella Gonzalez, Geraldo Rivera, Stacey Dash and Tito Puentes, Jr, they’ve worked on County Executive Elections and fund raisers, and even organized the victory party for County Executive for 1000+ attendees!

Past events have included the Pink Pumpkin Patch on the County Executive Lawn (getting their slogan “Got Checked” in October Recognized as “Got Checked” month through the County Executive’s Office), working with True TV’s “Impractical Jokers” Celebrity baseball match fundraiser, TMZ New York red carpet events with “Mob Wives”, and working directly with Singer/Actor Robert Davi on County and private events. Originating the concept “Beats and Eats”,paring celebrity chef’s from television with DJ Marc Weiss winner from “Chopped”, “Hell’s Kitchen”, “Top Chef”, “Cake Boss”, “ Cut Throat Kitchen” for a weekly celebrity chef tasting, Bumble B has also coordinated an open air concert with IRIE JAM 93.5 FM with 35+ live acts and 25,000 IN attendance!

THE CUTTING ROOM PRESENTS: “WONDERSHOW” Saturday, July 30th

A Monthly Series from Actor/Magician Patrick Terry Showcasing an Underground Vaudeville Experience with a Rotating Cast of World Renowned Variety Artists

New York, NY (July, 2016) —  On Saturday, July 30th legendary NYC venue The Cutting Room will present “Wondershow”, a monthly series produced by magician and actor Patrick Terry! With a rotating cast of new performers each month, each production is uniquely different from the last with new acts and new ways for audiences to be astonished and awestruck. This month’s performance will feature magicians Elliot Zimet (America’s Got Talent) and Matthew Holtzclaw (Penn & Teller’s “Fool Us”), martial-arts comedian Master Lee (Showtime at The Apollo), and comedian Harrison Greenbaum (Last Comic Standing) hosted by Lauren Hope Krass!

More on WONDERSHOW’s Upcoming Featured Performers:

Elliot Zimet is unparalleled in the world of magic and illusion. His fresh approach to his material is incomparable. Audiences have been captivated watching his appearances as a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent where judges exclaimed, “You surprised me. Your style was cool, and the audience loved you!” Recently he has been featured on Ryan Seacrest’s AXS TV- “AXS Live”, CBS – “The Early Show” and VH1 – “Big Morning Buzz Live”.

Born and raised in the Bronx, Elliot found great inspiration in New York City’s rich culture of music and fashion. When Elliot saw his first magic show at the age of nine, he knew that magic was to be his life. He has gone on to amaze audiences throughout the country from Madison Square Garden, to the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. In the Fall 2012 Elliot starred in his own off Broadway show, which had an extended run in Times Square NYC. He toured with “The Greatest Show on Earth” – Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and “The Most Interesting Show in the World ” for the Dos Equis company. Major brands and corporations such as the Grammy’s, People En Espanol Magazine, JC Penny, MAC, BMW and Macy’s have enlisted Elliot’s artistry.

Matthew Holtzclaw is one of New York City’s most in-demand entertainers and consultants, and has been recognized as one of the top performers and technicians in the world of magic and special effects. Matthew’s company The Artifice Group offers a fine selection of the best magicians working today; each unique and perfect for any type of gathering. Rolling Stone Magazine has called him “…UNFORGETTABLE, AND UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE ON TELEVISION.”

William Lee started out busking as a juggler before turning to stand-up in the early ’90s. At the time, Lee estimates that there were only a handful of Asian comics working the club circuit. There, he was able to start turning stereotypes inside out: “Here’s my Bruce Lee impression,” he’d tell a crowd before blankly staring back at them. For Lee, those years of work paid off, though, as he netted appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Showtime at the Apollo and Comic Relief, not to mention a cameo on Sesame Street.

Harrison Greenbaum began performing stand-up comedy while studying psychology and English at Harvard.  A summa cum laude graduate, Harrison was the co-founder of the Harvard College Stand-Up Comic Society (or “Harvard College SUCS,” as the group’s name is cheekily acronymized), the first organization at Harvard dedicated to the performance and appreciation of stand-up comedy and one still popular on campus today.

Now living in Manhattan, Harrison has quickly become one of the most in-demand comedians in New York, performing in more than 600 shows a year and thus leading both Time Out New York and the NY Daily News to call him “the hardest-working man in comedy.”  One of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch,” Harrison has also received many awards and honors for his comedy, including the Andy Kaufman Award (2010) for creativity and originality in comedy, the Shorty Award in collaboration with Comedy Central and the New York Comedy Festival for “Best Emerging Comic” (2011), and the Magners Comic Stand-Off (2011). On television, Harrison was featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing (for a clip, click here), AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and National Geographic Channel’s Brain Games, was a regular panelist on CurrentTV’s Viewpoint, and has appeared on MTV, SPIKE TV, the Discovery Channel, and the Science Channel. Behind the scenes, Harrison was a producer for Primetime: Would You Fall for That? on ABC (which premiered in 2013 to over 3.5 million viewers) and a story producer for VH1’s This is HOT 97, and was the warm-up comic for Katie, Katie Couric’s daytime talk show on ABC.

Lauren Hope Krass (HOST) is a New York based performer and writer who has won awards for her stand up (Charleston Comedy Festival) and her playwriting (College of Charleston.) She has been featured in many festivals and performs regularly around the city. She hosts a monthly show, “Laughter School Special” at Q.E.D. in Astoria.

To enjoy what Broadway World has called “The Most Perfect Date Night” and what AXS gives “5 out of 5 stars” and “Cannot recommend highly enough” come down to The Cutting Room Saturday, July 30th for WONDERSHOW (Doors Open 7PM, Show at 8PM)!

More About The Cutting Room:

The Cutting Room is keeping alive a New York tradition of live music that began even before the Swing Era, with the Supper Clubs of old, and continued through the Rock N Roll generation and beyond.

Steve Walter is the manager and prime owner, and the actor Chris Noth is an investor. “He gets the fan mail, I get the bills,” Walter jokes in an interview. But Walter is serious about his club, the music, and keeping alive New York as a place of real, honest-to-goodness live music.

Over the years, The Cutting Room has hosted some of the biggest names in music: Neil Young, Donovan, Buddy Miles, Judy Collins, Mary Wilson of the Supremes, and Alanis Morrisette. Alexa Ray Joel made her debut at The Cutting Room, while her proud parents, Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel, looked on.

The Cutting Room’s current location, at 44 East 32nd Street, is its second incarnation. It has been there since January, 2013. The venue is larger, with a bigger kitchen, more tables, better acoustics and larger food selections. The Cutting Room opened in November, 1999, on West 24th Street.

But Walter acknowledges the city is different than the one he started in almost two decades ago. Many of the live clubs have been driven out by astronomically high New York rents. A younger generation is now more interested in computerized music and DJs. The Internet has also taken its toll, with free music for all.

So how does The Cutting Room keep its doors open?

“It’s events and parties and the generation that still likes live sound,” said Walter, a guitarist from his youth who was graduated from the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston. “The corporate events, the food, and the music keeps them coming,” he said.

The Cutting Room has also begun serving Sunday brunches, a virtual religion in New York.

His 7,000-square-foot venue with its 18-foot high ceilings makes for excellent acoustics, which is something not too many other places can boast of anymore. “That’s why we’re still getting the top talent,” Walter said. “There’ not much else like us around these days.”

Walter, who grew up in Asbury Park, N.J., and was highly-successful in selling womens’ garments before opening his music club, said he is trying to keep alive the edge that New York City had decades ago.

“Sometimes I feel like a blacksmith,” he said, referring to an antiquated trade. But those feelings vaporize when some of his talent takes to the stage and the audience feels the music. He recalls fondly when Joan Rivers brought the crowd to its knees with her sharp jabs at New York society and the crazy life in the Big Apple. And, there was the time in April, 2001, when Sheryl Crow made an unadvertised appearance with Kid Rock.

The Cutting Room does not intend to be among them. “We’ll be here, keeping the lights on and letting the live music flow,” Walter said. “We keep getting the major talent.”

More About Chamber of Horrors:

Chamber of Horrors NY is Long Island’s Premier Haunted Attraction. In a dark collection of mazes and rooms, the attraction combines lights and sound with a cast unequaled in imagination and talent, not to mention bloodlust. Owned, built and staffed by industry veterans, they can proudly say that they are “Where fear lives…”!

During the Trilogy of Fear taking place Fridays and Saturdays, brave visitors will have an incredible experience exploring three live scare attractions. Fright fans get three haunts for the price of one!  Visitors can wander the chilling labyrinth of Maniac Manor, navigate the terrifying lunacy of Ward 9 and finally, stagger through the horror of Murderers’ Row.

On Sundays, the lights go out for one of the Chamber’s most terrifying events- “Kill the Light”. After turning off every light source in the haunt, visitors are sent through in groups of five in complete darkness with only a single glow stick to light their way- backwards. Remember when you used to be scared of the dark? You will be again! Returning this year as well (Dates TBA) will also be the “Nightmare Gallery”- an interactive art show/haunt in which local artists exhibit their work amidst the chaos. Watch out…while you’re critiquing some of the spooky works of art, there’s a scare waiting for you around every corner! And for our smaller fans, Kids Day (Dates TBA) will bring family friendly fun for all as a few select ghouls guide the whole gang on a Trick or Treat through The Chamber, teaching the kids how to scare their parents along the way.

For the third year in a row, Chamber of Horrors NY will also present its Holiday Haunt,

A Very Scary X-Mas, in December. Naughty or Nice no longer matters as Santa has had just about enough! The lists have gotten longer, the kids are ungrateful and somewhere along the way they took the sugar out of the cookies and put almonds in the milk! Its enough to drive an elf crazy…matter of fact, drive ALL the elves crazy!

With all of these events taking your breath away with every scare, Chamber of Horrors NY also plans to give back- supporting charitable organizations with special events including a Military Service night TBA.

VideoGlutton.com: UNPREDICTABLE ENTERTAINMENT

Viewers Can Expect to Find Exclusive Video Content, an Eclectic Mix of Music, Comedy, Motivation, Performance/Interviews of Academy and Grammy Award Winners, and Much More Madness!

Videoglutten.png

July, 2016 (New York, NY) — As a new breed of media stars continue to rise from the frontier of the Internet, the YouTube generation continues to spend countless hours searching online for all their entertainment needs.

A chance encounter on a classified ad site brought together two creative minds; KJ Franklin, a New York City Talent Agent/Music Publisher, and CJ Spears, a Toronto Songwriter/Video Editor, and together they created VideoGlutton.com. They also had the YouTube urge, but wanted to take a different approach. VideoGlutton.com has videotaped exclusive, unique performances and interviews with multi-platinum performers at concert venues in NYC, Chicago, and Toronto, as well as in apartments and even in a celebrity’s NYC office conference room! It proves that moving out of the house and onto the streets of the cities can produce something quite different than an average YouTube video.

Their first idea was to create American iDeal, an American iDoL type of talent competition. In 2010, they contacted two Academy and Grammy Award winners who had hit songs on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. One of the songs written never made it into the film, and VideoGlutton.com was given permission to find two sets of duet singers to perform this song. One of the singers they chose was Scott Hoying, a recent Texas high school graduate. He arrived at a small NYC recording studio with the other singers and sang his part of the duet. Fast forward to today, and Scott, with his new group PENTATONIX, won two Consecutive Grammy Awards! This video performance is just one of many such exciting stories that have come about from VideoGlutton.com.

VideoGlutton.com also secured a most sought after videotape session with Timothy B. Schmit of The Eagles. After contacting his management company on several occasions, they finally agreed to the session, indicating firmly that Timothy would not be performing and that it would just be an interview. However, with a bit of “Glutton” coaxing throughout the interview, Schmit obliged and performed a song, which is seen on VideoGlutton.com.

Since then, VideoGlutton.com has videotaped many national touring stand-up comedians, as well as promising new performers, and regularly showcases them on their site. Many of the comedians’ rants and stand-up routines are videotaped in unique spaces: the back seat of Minivans, Parks, and other unpredictable places. Some of the comedians are now appearing on the late night national TV show circuit.

Music Supervisors are now coming to VideoGlutton.com as a source for finding and placing original songs for use in films, TV series, commercials, and more.

VideoGlutton.com features such gems as a rare 1975 interview with all members of Fleetwood Mac, as well as in-depth interviews with staff photographers of the Fillmore East and Rolling Stone Magazine. This includes their stories, along with many iconic photos of Woodstock and beyond.

VideoGlutton.com is not just producing pre-recorded video content. Visit them on their VideoGlutton Facebook page, as they will be producing Live Video Streaming, featuring a fun mix of music, comedy performances, and interviews.

Besides being an entertainment driven production, VideoGlutton.com advocates for the Dangers of Distracted Texting – #bTXTsmart – and will be partnering with foundations, individuals, and entertainers who support this important public safety initiative, as well as supporting the victims of related tragedies. VideoGlutton.com showcases Public Service Messages from an eclectic mix, including Boston College women hockey players, as well as several women standup comedians reinforcing the #bTXTsmart message. The #bTXTsmart Motivation + Music School Tour will be available Fall 2016.
