July News and Happenings

SUMMER AT A GLANCE

Summer greetings!

EVENT ENTERTAINMENT LEADERSHIP
Collaboration, Creativity, Good Execution

Creating memorable experiences happens when you pair creativity and a talented team of professionals, whether it is for a social celebration or to elevate a corporate brand at a company’s event.  Events are made to inspire, create and engage. And, today’s events must be even more creative, authentic, and experiential. Music helps – music that reflects authenticity, imagination and inspiration. Whether it is a cocktail or dinner reception to conclude a conference, a gala or an intimate reception, or a stage performance, live music will bring spark, energy, beauty and foster connectivity.

LB Entertainment helps create entertainment designed to enhance many types of events.  Our musical artists, LB’s multi-talented Mélange Jazz Collective and LB’s innovative and original live electronic act MïxT BeatZ bring delight to many audiences for many occasions. (Artist Closeup: http://www.lbentertainmentintl.com/2018/03/).

Our musical options are tailored to individual needs. For information regarding booking your upcoming fall season’s events or to request additional information about our rates, artists and their availability, please call us today or write to danielle@lbentertainmentintl.com.

CREATIVITY IN MUSICAL SOUNDS
Mélange Jazz Collective Trio

Mélange Jazz Collective’s distinctive sound fuses various musical styles and backgrounds as varied as Jazz, blues, Latin, reggae, funk, new music, gospel, world. Music groups form for a variety of reasons – musical relationships, friendships and desire to perform together – but the group’s sound grows out of an understanding among the members about a collective’s musical direction and an acceptable musical outcome. Mélange’s cohesive sound reflects the collective’s close musical collaboration, history, group dynamics, improvisation. Each member expresses his individual voice and strives to engage the others to create a unified sound.

Members of Mélange Jazz Collective are a group of passionate collaborators who have performed together for over 10 years and have collaborated on several music projects. Their unique sound and style is the result of a long creative journey together that keeps developing.

“The joy of performing lies in the unexpected discovery of a new way of interpreting a tune, or in experiencing a spontaneous interaction between group members in the course of the performance that might take the tune in an unusual direction. Ultimately, a collective, informed and inspired improvisational experience might actually be considered even more successful if it leads into a kind of spontaneous musical arrangement, albeit one that is fleeting and unrepeatable. Progress might be measured by an ever-increasing number of these “arrangements” as we continue to perform together”. Steve Strawitz, Mélange Jazz Collective’s guitarist/violinist.
