Hear: Washington Talent Band Showcases

23 03 2009

Washington TalentAre you hiring a band for your event? Want to hear what the band sounds like live before signing them? Check out Washington Talent’s band showcase! Here is how it works:

  • Where: their Rockville, MD studio
  • When: various dates at 8:30-9:30pm
  • What: a live 30 minute performance by the highlighted band for the evening. Musicians perform a sample set of songs, dressed in the outfits they would wear to your event with full on lights. This will be followed by some time for Q&A
  • How: Go to the band showcase page of their website.

What a great idea!





DC ISES Expo

8 12 2008

A few weeks ago, I attened the Expo for the DC chapter of the International Special Events Society. It a great trade show to meet new vendors, see the latest wares, and get reacquainted with old friends. Because I was volunteering to work registration, I had missed the educational seminars which provided discussions with expert panels on topics for the novice to expert event professionals.

This year’s expo was held at the Marriott Bethesda North and the theme was Cirque du Soleil, complete with aerial artists by Arachne Aerial Arts, an Obama impersonator by Cast of Thousands (click here for photo from Wish Special Events), and a talking robot named Sprockit provided by Wasthing Talent.
