September Updates from LB Entertainment

Greetings. Welcome to our latest updates.

Jazz Philadelphia Summit 2020, October 9 and 10 – “Resilience”

Jazz Philadelphia Summit brings together musicians, educators, industry professionals, fans, and some of the most innovative thinkers in the jazz scene for two days of music and discovery. We will be attending the 2020 Summit that will be presented virtually on October 9 and 10.

In view of the incredible challenges and adversity that confront musicians and the music industry, this year’s theme is “Resilience”. Resilience in the sense of “getting through and emerging stronger on the other side as a community”, a theme that will resonate with many.

Award-winning musician Terri Lyne Carrington will be the keynote speaker.  Other presenters and performers include:

George Burton . Vijay Iyer . Orrin Evans . Monnette Sudler . Michelle Lordi . Aaron Graves . Tony Miceli . Michael O’Bryan . Michael Kline . Mark Christman . John Ernesto . Emmet Cohen . Dr. Ron McCurdy . Denny Santangini . Carol Riddick . Anthony Tidd . Aalyah Duncan.

“Emergence” – A new composition by MïxT BeatZ and Laurent Bass

In my own words:

As a musician, composing music has been one of the activities that keeps me grounded during this time of quarantine. My latest composition is entitled “Emergence”, soon to be released.

Eclectic fusion and music of hope, “Emergence” is a tribute to all artists affected by adversity in this period of great challenges and transformation. “Emergence” is meant to foster hope through driving rhythm and creative arrangement. “Emergence” is an energetic positive song, dedicated to encouraging musicians and artists to stand strong and emerge stronger.

Resources and Innovative Strategies

We are pleased to join MPI Philadelphia  (Meeting Professionals International) and ILEA   (International Live Events Association) for their virtual round table discussions with industry leaders as part of their leadership and education engagement program for the event industry. We are impressed by the content of the presentations, the undeniable support and strategic resilience that these organizations offer amid these unprecedented and difficult times.

Music provides a space for reflection, inspiration, enjoyment, and getting re-energized. We love music. We love entertainment. While we confront COVID-19, we continue to explore the best way to perform in collaboration with other event professionals and musical artists.

We look forward to safely return and share our music in front of a live audience.

With warmest regards.
