Since 1998 began creating and producing events which originally started at Hellyer Park (San Jose, Ca) as Summer Day party events w over 500+ ppl from 1998 – 2002 until ultimately being shutdown by Santa Clara county due to massive crowds. Playboi also then migrated to the Rave & nightclub scene in 99/2000-2003 promoting for various promoters at the time such as Pauly P with the FreakFest raves at the San Jose Fairgrounds, BOSS ent at Ciub Rio, and G Spot events for various nightclubs in San Jose all now defunct.

Furthermore began what was highly influential throughout the nightlife industry years later and highly successful in the business was bringing some of the nations most recognized & renowned djs to the bay area, which at the time was unheard of and very uncommon.
