What We Do

Corporate Function

You've got a group of important people who need to gather. You need the right setting, the right feel, the right program and the right external guests and entertainment. We've got the experience to make that happen.

Fundraiser

You've got the cause; you've got the potential donors and you need someone to put it all together. We'll even get on the phone for you... really.

Internal Conference

It's time for your company to come together and understand what each other are doing, learn something, and have a little fun in the process.

Outdoor Public Event

We've got a permit guy and all of the resources needed to make any outdoor public event an unbelievable experience.

User Group

You've got a group of customers that you'd like to bring together in an informative and entertaining atmosphere.

Label Showcase

You've got the talent, the A&R skills, the marketing and the management down. You just need to showcase all of that... and you have no time...

We've been producing entertainment, corporate and private events for over 15 years.

Our Portfolio

We've produced shows at the old and closed CBGBs. We've produced events at the Highline Ballroom. We've produced events at The Ritz Carlton in Pasadena, California and we've produced events at the Nassau Coliseum. We've produced events all over the United States, in Canada and Europe. Shoot, we've even brought the Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey circus to town.

Whether you have a corporate function, internal conference, user group, fundraiser, outdoor public event, or a label showcase, we can do anything to help; from basic consultation to production for the entire event.

No matter what type of event, we meet you for an initial understanding of the event in question. We then come up with a timeline and associated deliverables. This way, when we begin to work with each other, we know what the goals are and when everything needs to happen to ensure the most successful event possible.

If you've got an internal events team, we can work with them. If it's only you, we can work with that too.

No matter your bottom line, our bottom line is that we can work with you, regardless of your resources.
