Hot off of the success of his Halloween Bash and last week’s End of the World Party, BB Ingle, the Master of Events and the Godfather of Parties, will be throwing his 29th Annual New Year’s Eve Masquerade Party on December 31. This will be the 5th year that the event is being held at The Renaissance Esmeralda Resort in Indian Wells.

This year there will be three ballrooms of entertainment which will include the All-Star Party Band along with seven DJ’s; DJ Ray Phillips, DJ Dirty Ish DJ Jeff Ferguson, DJ JF//Discord, DJ Ceasare and others to be announced. The party will start at 9:00pm and go until 2:00am. You can purchase tickets in advance for 20.00 at or pay 25.00 at the door.

After 29 years, BB’s events have become legendary, because nobody throws a party like BB. It all started back in the 80’s when he and a few others founded the famous BB O’Brien’s Sports Bar. After the establishment was sold, BB continued on with the tradition of throwing holiday parties and special events in the Coachella Valley.



“I try to throw a party once a month,” stated Ingle in his smooth, laid-back Alabama twang, which is where he originally hails from. “The End of the World Party was just a fun excuse to throw an extra party around the holidays and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.” Ingle says he’s had a passion for gathering people together since he was a young boy. And even though he also owns The Water Store in Palm Desert on Highway 111, he says that throwing parties is still his main career. He also has a passion for animals and a portion of the proceeds from all of his parties goes to the Pet Rescue Center.

BB says that he plans on re-inventing himself a bit in 2013. He has several new endeavors including opening a new dance club. “So many people keep asking me when I’m going to open another club so I think 2013 might be the time to do it,” shared Ingle, excited to be taking on another new project. “We are also going to be hosting some smaller, private, invitation only parties at smaller venues.”

And of course BB is in high demand as a party promoter for other corporation’s big events. He has been invited to host parties at The Humana Golf Challenge on January 19 & 20 at Hope Square at PGA West during both days. Then he will also be doing his 29th Annual Classy Party in the evening of January 19, at a location to be announced. For all of the loyal party goers that attend BB’s events it doesn’t really matter where it is or what it’s for, they will be there. If you haven’t had the experience of attending one of these memorable bashes then maybe you should start with his New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball. Don’t worry if you don’t have a mask one will be provided for you at the door. A good time will be had by all.
