September Happenings and Highlights


We hope that you all had a wonderful summer! Summer vibes may have ended but we’re excited about the vibrant fall season in our area, filled with many autumn events and happenings of every kind.


We are honored to have the opportunity, throughout the year, to partner with many amazing event associates and clients and feature our music and musical artists at several of their new or recurring events.

We admire the creativity, inspiration and aesthetic vision that planners use to showcase their events that produce special and memorable events. Recurring events require adding new elements, time after time, to produce meaningful and entertaining experiences. Not only are planners showcasing their own creativity, but they are also engaging the creativity of other professionals involved. For us and our musical artists, this means bringing and delivering the best in music to enhance a gala, fundraiser, ceremony or wedding cocktail reception, cultural programming or to a corporate event.


Join us to kick off our fall music season! We’re pleased and grateful to be back at some of our favorite venues. Here are some of our scheduled performances:
