Chicago, United States
Byron Burke, founder and CEO of BB Global Media Group (bbmediaglobal.com), has worked in the music and consulting industry for over twenty seven years. He began at the age of 13 as a gifted trumpet player and DJ on the Westside of Chicago. By the age of 16, he was recognized as one of the top teenage DJ's in Chicago. This led him his first record deal with DJ International Records.
Byron was the creative force behind the legendary house music band from Chicago named Ten City. He co-wrote, produced and remixed songs on the “Foundation” and “State Of Mind” albums for Atlantic Records, including “No House Big Enough” for East/West Records, and “That Was Then, This Is Now” for Columbia Records.
Burke has combined two of his passions, strategic business planning and music as he is an integral part of the team developing the DJ Hall of Fame and the DJ Hall of Fame Museum.
