Omar Blanco | Owner & DJ
Hi! My name is Omar Blanco Valentin, (DJ BLANCO). I'm a Minnesota DJ and entrepreneur focusing on marketing, music business, and live music production. I love to help people celebrate their special occasions. I was raised in Iowa, but in November 2021, my wife and I moved to Minnesoa. In 2022, we re-homed a two-month pitbull-akita mix, Penny. She loves soaking in the sun and meeting new people!
At age 13, I started DJ Thriller-Musical Genius (now known as Musical Genius Productions); I also started mixing sounds for local bands and venues. Then in 2018, I became an audio and lighting tech for M&D Sound and began working with Premier Global Productions, a national staging company.
I enjoy creating exceptional entertainment such as Summerfoam Live – the Nation's Hottest Foam Party, and Musical Genius Productions – Minnesota's Premier Wedding DJ.
I graduated Hampton-Dumont High School in 2014. Then in 2021, I enrolled at NIACC to pursue a degree in Marketing and graduated in May 2022.
I'm the proud recipient of the 2014 Iowa DAR Good Citizen and Iowa Bar Association American Citizenship awards. Music awards include the John Philip Sousa and Iowa Choral Directors Association awards.
I love attending concerts and sightseeing. My first concert was Luke Bryan in 2014! I'm a percussionist and Bass 1 vocal singer. I enjoy traveling, taking photos, listening to music, watching movies, running, and cuddling with my puppy!

WhaT I Love About DJing
Since 2009, I’ve provided wedding entertainment for happy couples and have enjoyed watching crowds dance all night and have a good time. Weddings, proms and homecomings, and quinceañeras are a time to create memories. I love when guests say how much fun they had or how much they danced. I’ve spent time polishing my DJ booth, so you receive clean sound quality and stunning lighting. As an experienced public speaker, you can trust me to hype up the crowd too. When I’m not DJing, you’ll find me at the gym, movies, or walking my pup – Penny. I’m excited to get to know you and make your day memorable in any way I can! Contact me to get started!
