If you’ve been to a nightclub in Brooklyn or Queens lately, chances are Philip Mascia, aka Philly, was part of the promotional team for the event.

Only 21 years old, Mascia spearheads promotion on new parties and has his hand in countless nightclub events spanning New York City and Long Island

Mascia, a native of Glendale, attended Archbishop Molloy High School and enjoyed playing baseball at a young age.

Mascia, now a senior at Saint John’s University, enjoys crunching numbers instead of fastballs as he will earn his degree in accounting this spring. Mascia also expects to complete a masters in taxation by next spring, all while promoting the hottest nightclub events in Brooklyn.

Mascia got involved in club promotion at the age of 13, promoting a popular teen event in Astoria, Queens. According to Mascia, the fact that he “couldn’t get a job anywhere else” at that age opened the door for him to get involved in club promotion.

First starting out, Mascia would only be responsible for racking a few names on his private guest list, getting compensated at a per person rate.

As he’s moved up the ranks in the promotion world Mascia has taken on a lot more responsibility.

“I’m responsible from A to Z when promoting a room,” he said. According to Mascia, he’s responsible for booking DJ’s, hiring security and bartenders, creating a theme for the event, and most importantly “making sure the room is packed.”

Currently, Mascia’s flagship party is at F1 Ultra Lounge on 65th Street in Brooklyn, where he promotes every Friday night.

According to Mascia, there are three elements that set his parties above all the rest.

“The ladies, the room, and the quality promotion,” he said.

Popular parties, like F1, make it the stress of the job all worthwhile for Mascia.

“The best part about being a promoter is when two years later a customer comes up to you and says 'Hey, I really loved that party,'” said Mascia.

Mascia already holds the top promoter position a certain venues, but for Philly it’s not enough.

“I want to bring it to the next level,” said Mascia. “At some point, I want to move up to concert or stadium events.”

Mascia plans to keep on promoting even after he graduates.

“As long as I have my hands in the business, and take things to the fullest extreme, I'm going keep promoting,” he said.
