Michael Buonaccorso co-founded (along with Robert Lindquist) Mobile Beat Magazine in 1991, after many years in the music business as a performer and disc jockey. After a few years as Executive editor, in 1996 he took on the new project of establishing the Mobile Beat DJ Show and Conferences, the first of which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1997. 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of Mobile Beat Magazine.Since then he has been the producer of every Mobile Beat event, nineteen of which have been in Las Vegas, and ten in other areas of the US, plus, he played an integral part in the planning of the Mobile Beat tours, which from 2009 thru 2011 visited over 35 cities bringing a taste of the “big show” around the country . MBLV2016 will be his thirtiest production. He is widely renowned in the industry as having the most experience and knowledge on successful DJ trade show production of any single individual,and in 2011 released his book, “A Different Spin:The Evolution and Revolution of the Mobile DJ”. Mobile Beat’s current Editor-in-Chief,Dan Walsh, had this to say about “A Different Spin”: Mike’s writing certainly is sharp…It slices with clear spoken truth and wry wit–wit that might sting some of the actors in this industry’s theater of the absurd, but for the general public,will make this trip through Mobile DJ history an enjoyable journey with an entertaining guide.”The second edition of “A DIfferent Spin” will be released in 2016.
