Well, yes, December—and the year—are drawing to a close. And that “most wonderful time of the year,” as it often does, threw some unexpected obstacles at our production team as we worked to get our big, extra Mobile Beat Las Vegas Issue out the door. But this truly is a case of “better late than never.”

This issue focuses on some of the great content you will experience at the upcoming, game-changing MBLV event in February 2015. And, as producer Mike Buonaccorso says in his guest Track One, “No one shares a time slot with filler, because it’s all killer!”

Inside, you’ll get a sampling of material from MBLV’s presenters: Some are industry favorites; some are relatively new on the national scene; and some are from outside the industry but have a different spin on fundamental principles of business and entertaining.

Probably the most surprising personality on the schedule is none other than master entertainer Penn Jillette, half of the legendary magic duo, Penn & Teller. He will share insights on staying fresh as a performer for the long haul.

As for the MBLV’s evening attractions, we also talk with Sir Mix-A-Lot, headliner of our Legends event (along with just-announced fellow legend DJ Jazzy Jeff), discovering his DJ roots and his high level of respect for the mobile DJs who continue to play his music, week in and week out.

“To say this show will be phenomenal is an understatement,” Mike B. continues. “If you value yourself, your business and your future, find a way to get to to Las Vegas, February 23-26, 2015…You won’t want to miss out on this totally re-imagined MBLV event. Hope to see you there!”
