OUR STORY

Our Philosophy

In 2018 Mike Burdette (AKA DJ Mikah D! ) Formed a partnership With Mike Webster (Original member of the Hip Hop group Digital Underground). "We collaborated and decided that if we could present great live entertainment at Small venues  we might support the Bay Area Communities  enjoy the richness of live musical performances right here locally."  Thus the name Hylife (where Big dreams are made of) and O-City (Where creativity reflects the city and is bountiful) was a great place to start.
