DJ Omar B’s career spans back to 1999 when he caught the attention of DJ Jason Herd (Herd & Fitz), a seven-year residency followed DJing at the Northern Quarter’s now infamous 2Risque at North Nightclub and The Holy City Zoo.
In addition, Omar became a resident of the super exclusive Ultima events which ran during the same era in stately homes throughout the North West. A spell at the legendry Miss Moneypennies in Birmingham topped off this golden era.
Early 2000’s saw the addition of Omar’s own weekly Thursday night at ‘The Bar’ on Deansgate locks and residencies at the very popular Revolution Bar and LOAF. This was accompanied by a residency at Yesterday’s Nightclub in Alderley edge.
In addition, Omar has played at the world-famous Sankey’s in Manchester on various occasions.
Following a 10 Year stint in her Majesty’s Royal Marine Commandos, Omar then resurrected his DJ Career with his passion and natural love for music in early 2018. Quickly securing residencies at Piccolinos, Restaurant Bar and Grills and Gino’s across the North West.
Omar has also played at a whole host of Corporate Events and Private Parties during this period. Then to top it off Summer 2018 has seen Omar work out of Ibiza with a Monthly week-long residency at The ME Hotel and then a set with Bristol Based Soul Train Radio at their annual Ibiza party. After officially signing for Six15 Artist Management, Omar then added weekly Residencies at the Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester Neighbourhoods and Hale and Alderley Edge Victors chains to his portfolio. The successful year culminated with DJ’ing at the North West Football Awards alongside acts such as Noel Gallagher and DJ YODA. New Year’s Eve also saw Omar headline at Normans Bar Leeds.
2019 has already started at a fast pace with several International bookings already made in both Ibiza and Belgium for the summer. With several private and corporate events already in the calendar too, Omar is looking forward to building on a successful 2018.
2019 has already seen Omar perform at various venues such as Salon Launches, Harvey Nichols Store Parties, Fitness Classes and Professional Football players birthdays showing Omar’s versatility and flexibility.
2019 has also seen Omar pick up his first Gig with the super exclusive and high end 25Nuage at their Easter Brunch. Summer 2019 looks extremely busy with Omar travelling out to Ibiza once a month to DJ at various venues and events.
Omar’s inept ability to quickly mix from track to track and genre to genre in a very short space of time, coupled with his in-depth knowledge of music ensures the dance floor is kept on its feet at all times. Omar is comfortable playing at any Venue or Occasion be it a Bar, Club, Festival, Wedding or Corporate Event.
