Born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of house music, Bobby De Maria always felt a deep and profound connection to the cities rich musical heritage. However, it was more than just the music itself that captivated Bobby, but rather what it represented- individuality, inclusivity, freedom, and a resolute rejection of social norms. From an early age, Bobby recognized the transformative power of music and saw an incredible opportunity to merge his passion with his entrepreneurial spirit. Fueled by a desire for breaking barriers and bringing people together, Bobby left behind his finance degree from Michigan State, and decided to pursue music business at Columbia, eventually creating Afterlife Entertainment. Afterlife is now a nationally recognized entertainment and marketing company ranging across various genres of music and types of Businesses. Bobby’s passion for the growth of the small business scene and genuine love of music makes Afterlife stand out as an influential force in the worlds of both entertainment & Business.

Musician, DJ, promoter, event planner and electronic music enthusiast, Pete Burwell (The Audacity) was born and raised in Chicago IL and now resides in Phoenix AZ.  When he isn’t performing, he spends his time curating events. Pete’s passion for music is always ignited whether he is managing a stage or in the studio creating original tracks, edits, and remixes aided by over two decades of classical instrumentation.

Having spent many years performing at all of the major local night clubs (alongside local hard-hitters and national acts), holding multiple residencies, DJing special events and promoting his own shows, Pete has found a home with Afterlife and manages the Phoenix division. For him, it’s all about creating the vibe for the audience, curating the appropriate lineup, and making sure to get you jumping, singing along and moving your feet, regardless of genre
