Brent Persia is a one-man-band and DJ who puts on a unique modern music show. Brent first became known in the Western New York area for his high energy acoustic party rock covers and originals. Since then Brent has been nominated twice for 'best acoustic performer' in Nightlife Magazine's 'Best of Western New York' contest. By 2011 he was inspired by the possibilities of modern music technology and got the idea to blend his two passions, live music and DJing, seamlessly together into one state-of-the-art performance.
Singing and playing guitar while controlling background beats is a challenging job for one performer. However, today Brent has it mastered and the atmosphere he creates at shows makes people get up and sing and dance. To achieve his vision Brent built some of his own custom looping technologies. He also uses his own musical invention, the 'guitambourine,' which attaches to his guitar and allows him to add live percussion to the mix. Often surprised that so much sound could come from one person, audience members regularly ask him to explain how it all works!
Brent has been a resident DJ at Buffalo's largest cruise night at with thousands in attendance every week. His music has been featured on WKBW Buffalo Channel 7 News, Western New York's 107.7 FM The Lake, 91.3 FM WBNY, 90.7 FM WGCC, 1490 AM WBTA, 1300 AM WXRL, LCTV Adelphia Channel 13, and Adelphia Channel 20. Brent has also been featured in The Batavia Daily News, The Batavian and The Niagara Gazette.
