THE PARTY MAKERS STORY


Boston Party Makers was founded in the early 1980's by Neil Petricone. Neil http://www.discogs.com/artist/Neil+Petricone and other original Party Maker DJ's such as Captain Wendell Edmunds http://www.myspace.com/captainwendell parlayed their status as the kings of the Boston Nightclub DJ scene into creating one of (possibly the first!) DJ companies in the Boston area. Working out of their Third Street Cambridge office Neil and crew quickly became the go to company for Boston DJ events.

Current Boston Party Makers owner Mark Bloomstein began working as a DJ for Party Makers in the 1980's and eventually left his marketing/sales jobs in the world of Cable Television to become Party Makers Office Manager. In 1989 Neil Petricone decided to focus his intentions on starting a DJ based remix services called X-Mixx http://xmix.com/. Neil also became the Manager of one of the DJ World's true superstars Armand Van Helden http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armand_Van_Helden who has remixed records for a slew of platinum artists and had his own platinum hits under his name and as part of the Duck Sauce Duo (Barbara Streisand). Mark was instrumental in the start up of X-Mixx working as Production Manager for them in their early days.

In 1989 Neil sold Party Makers to Mark to focus on the emergence of X-Mixx. mark transformed Party Makers into a full service entertainment agency capable of providing any kind of entertainment for any time of event.
