A resident DJ for Bearracuda, he’s also spun in Nola, Dallas, Philly, SF and Houston, in addition to regular rotations in LA, Long Beach and San Diego.

Babette Schwartz
Saturday Resort Party Host
Babette’s Bingo Brunch
Host Resort Patio

Babette has had a very successful career over the years, but had to endure some of life’s trials and tribulations before hitting it big on the drag scene. After some questionable work choices, she finally made a connection with Jim J. Bullock. Babette settled in America’s Finest City to attend San Diego State and never left. Before COVID, Babette would perform regularly at Street Scene and emcee the annual amateur drag beauty pageant Tantrums and Tiaras, and she’s excited to return this year to make her bingo brunch more outrageous than ever before.   Make sure to buy your bingo cards B-4 they sell out!

DJ Brian Novy
Resort Party

DJ Brian Novy is back for more!  Lover of electronic music, Brian is back for his third year, and will keep the pool vibe bright and active.  He’s a regular at Eagle LA, and performed at Bay of Pigs and Up Your Alley, too!

DJ Eli Correa
Resort Party
Closing Party

Growing up in the 80’s gave DJ Eli a wide variety of music to inspire him. He would watch MTV and VH1 listening to various artists (B-52’s, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Nirvana, R.E.M, Madonna, Tom Petty, The Police, Queen) everyday and today translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: uplifting vocals, thumping bass, with body shaking dance and foot-shuffling house beats.

Phil Lisotta
Phil’s Trivia
Host Resort Picnic Area


FIL TRI-vee-uh.  Back again by popular demand, he’s actually crazy enough to return to Big Bear ROMP with MORE trivia. When Phil isn’t harassing old ladies or chasing woodland creatures, he spends his free time sunbathing in the nude with cleverly-placed bathtub decals, and occasionally taunting audiences with creative trivia and witty banter.  Join him on Saturday afternoon at the host hotel for an entertaining and hilarious trivia experience you’ll have nightmares about.

Known for bringing in world-class talent, Big Bear ROMP has featured comedians, singers, DJs and entertainers including Amber, Leslie Jordan, CeCe Peniston, Crystal Waters, Lady Bunny, Stacey Q, Babette Schwartz, Shawn Pelofsky and more.
It’s a fun, memorable event in a beautiful mountain setting like no other.
