A leading authority in music, DJ Lonnie B’s innovative style and aggressive focus has made him a household name in not only his hometown of Richmond, VA but in cities up and down the East Coast as well.

After 24 years in the music industry, his accolades include being a founding partner of the 804 Flava Label and an explosive member of the rap group Supafriendz, which afforded him the opportunity to rap on stage with artists such as the fallen angel Aaliyah and catch the attention of veteran rappers like Doug E. Fresh and Jay-Z.

Known widely for his Art of Noise events with thousands of attendees, this urban music historian seamlessly transforms these events from an old school Hip-Hop and R&B party into a celebration of music that includes all genres that the average listener doesn’t get to experience at traditional parties.

With phenomenal mentors which include DJ Jazzy Jeff and drawing inspiration from some of his favorite rappers like Jay-Z, Nas and Redman, DJ Lonnie B is a dominant force with a dedicated and loyal following.  He commands the airwaves in the City of Richmond as both the Mix Show Coordinator and a prime time DJ for Radio One’s WCDX ipower 92.1.  Tune in as he brings the city home from work every night from 5 ‘til 6pm on the Hard Drive at 5 and Sundays from 7 ‘til 10pm when he educates the city on the Sunday School Mix.  

But DJ Lonnie B, a distinguished member of the exclusive Heavy Hitters DJ crew, doesn’t stop there.  You can now stream his mixes on Apple Music by searching “DJ Lonnie B” and find many of his favorites on his own self-titled app DJ Lonnie B as well.

Having garnered the respect of top officials in the halls of Virginia’s government offices, he has also proudly deejayed parties at the Governor’s Mansion for former Governor Terry McAuliffe (2014-2018), inauguration celebrations for the Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General and was invited to do the same for the inauguration of the current Governor Ralph Northam (2018). 

Whether he’s selling out venues packed with party goers or spinning in more intimate environments like weddings or gubernatorial events, his charismatic presence can be felt as he takes over the dance floor and energizes crowds track by track. 

Not bad for a once curious 5 year old boy staring at a record player whose love for music over the years transcended into a pool of opportunity for him as an adult and the city he loves.  DJ Lonnie B is Richmond.
