Take Your Show on the Road

Equipped with a self-contained Bluetooth sound system, a spellbinding light show, integrated wheels, a telescoping handle, and powered by an internal rechargeable battery, Block Party Live creates an instant party environment—wherever your spirit takes you.

Mobile Music

Block Party Live is packed with music-making muscle. Inside the rugged cabinet you’ll find a two-way speaker system with efficient bass porting, and 50 Watts of pure sound power.  Pump out your favorite tunes using convenient wireless technology. Block Party Live allows you to stream music directly from any Bluetooth-enabled tablet, smartphone, iPad, iPhone, iPod, or other device. And don’t worry; you’re not limited to wireless. Block Party Live also offers a mini-plug stereo input for connecting your mixer, laptop, MP3/CD player—or any handy audio source!

Light Up the Night

Block Party Live provides a built-in multi-mode LED Light Dome that casts a dazzling light show into—and onto—any environment to create a festive feel. Vibrant Orange LEDs have been added to Red, Green, and Blue of the traditional LED Light Dome, providing an enhanced level of visual excitement. In the Beat Sync Mode, the motion and pulse of the light is locked to the music for an intense multi-media spectacle. Switch over to the Auto Mode and watch as the lights take on a life all their own. And if that’s not enough, Block Party Live includes a free app (Android or iOS) offering real-time control of the Light Dome motor speed; plus you can choose the correct color palette to add a visual theme to your celebration.

Bring the Action … Or be the Action

Liven up a dull party. Add a new dimension to a deep woods campfire. Transform that dorm into a disco. Or hit the streets and start a rave. Block Party Live places you in the center of the action. Plus, the hand-held microphone allows you to be the party host, the Master of Ceremonies, or the mainstage DJ as you keep the crowd moving.

My battery shows a low charge but when I put on the party lights, they sometimes strobe when I don't want them to. What do I do?

If you get unwanted strobing from the party lights and the battery shows a low charge, connect the Block Party Live to a wall power source for immediate functionality and to begin charging your battery, or turn off the party lights until you are able to recharge the battery to a higher level for continued audio.

Since the lights can use a large amount of power, a single green battery status light left on the battery charge may not be enough to power both the lights and the music. The battery life of a fully charged Block Party Live is up to 75 hours with music only and up to 6 hours with lights and music.
