B Platinum was set in to motion when original pop/rock group "Lightyear" began playing cover songs to supplement their long sets.
Soon after, Warner Brothers Television awarded the group the title "Arizona's Hottest Cover Band".  They became their house band, and their music video for original hit "Make Believe" was played everyday on the WB television network.
This band continued as drummer, Aaron left to form "ENVY", Scottsdale's dance club performance powerhouse and Barcelona's house band.  That group later accepted a contract in Las Vegas.
With a talented roster of musicians in Arizona, Aaron stayed behind to assemble an “event” focused band. He recruited talented vocalists and musicians from previous projects and scouted the Valley to form the current lineup of B Platinum.  
The first official full band performance of B Platinum was at the Arizona Grand Hotel, New Years Eve 2007.

Keyboard| Mike Berrelleza

Mike had an interest in music at an early age. At age 8, he began taking piano lessons, becoming classically trained in reading music, sight reading and performing classical pieces in numerous recitals.

Throughout the years, Mike became interested in developing his skills with other instruments. While growing up, he also played the trumpet for 8 years. And while in high school and college, he picked up other instruments along the way, such as guitar, bass and drums, playing in different bands with each of these instruments.   

Since everything he played seemed to relate back to the piano in one way or another, he decided to focus primarily on that. While playing in many different bands and projects throughout college, he finally came across a group of extremely talented musicians known as "Lightyear."

Mike joined and played numerous shows with them before recruiting additional talented members in to the group to form B Platinum.  He adds his style and instrumental diversity every time we step on stage.
