    This is not your typical event planner. With years of entertainment experience, and a love for the arts, Brandon Irizarry is taking the word "EVENT" to another level.

    Born and raised in Farmingdale, family man Brandon Irizarry is the doting father of five beautiful children; four girls and a son. Brandon’s entrepreneurship traits and thriving entertainment career began in his early teens when he founded a DJ business with a friend. The company was called EspoZarry Entertainment; they catered to Sweet 16’s, high school parties and then began to tour the club scene with Mace from De La Soul.

    “I brought Razor, Guido and De La Soul together and Guido did their album in his studio. I started booking musicians and artists for clubs and concerts. We became known as Bigg Dogg Bookings. I booked ten hip-hop legends for a concert and thirty thousand people attended! I booked KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E Fresh, Little Vicious, Chubb Rock, Nice and Smooth and many more.”

    At the age of twenty-five, Brandon started an organic tree and lawn care company called Long Island Organic. He was the first true, 100% organic tree and Lawn Company. “I advertised the "pioneers in organic horticulture." I was the original "green guerrilla" certified in organic horticulture. I started this business with one truck and twenty accounts and in two years I had fifteen trucks out working with eighteen hundred accounts!”

    This is when Brandon decided to collaborate his work and become more involved with charitable causes. He wanted to give back to the Long Island community. He managed to connect with the Breast Cancer Correlation in Huntington, speaking about the link between pesticides and breast cancer.

    Brandon went into business with an attorney friend as well. “We started a mortgage company, State Wide Home Credit Corp. in Lindenhurst.” When the mortgage industry took a dive, they were forced to sell the mortgage offices. That is when Brandon began to dabble in security, law enforcement and politics... although his heart remained in the entertainment business.

    Over the years, as Brandon has reinvented and strengthened his business knowledge, he never lost his flourishing heart, nor his adoration of music, and he has established a strong community name for himself. BZarry Entertainment is the product of twenty-five years of music, networking, connections, charities and family experience wrapped up now - in one company.

    Brandon is on the Committee for pinktie.org and volunteers his time by assiting Veterans Protected and Long-Island Cares.
