How to Plan Last-Minute Holiday Party Music

 Read on for 
   *  a Tip for selecting Last-Minute Party Music, 
   *  our next 2 public events,
   *  and another quick Video. 

But First, Let Me Tell You a Little Story:

"Robbie, who's the best caterer for my 
New Orleans brunch"?

I'm always receiving questions like this.

Thank goodness, I'm active in several 
networking groups.

You too?

Friends and colleagues who meet frequently.  
We always get to know each other better 
and talk about working together. 

And whenever it's appropriate, we also 
recommend each other to friends and clients.

A few weeks ago two of my favorite groups 
held a joint meeting at the Corinthian Ballroom,
one of the top event facilities 
in San Jose.

While I was introducing a "newcomer" to 
a long-time friend, a familiar face tapped 
me on the shoulder and asked me 
"Robbie, can I have one of your cards.  
I know someone who needs your help".

She's the concierge at a San Jose luxury 
condo complex.  Sure enough, a few days 
later  I heard from one of her tenants, and 
he included my trio in two  last- minute 
holiday parties he was planning.

Why am I talking about last-minute parties?

This story is a great example of how to 
get help when you're planning your next 
last-minute event.

An event that could come up for any of 
a dozen reasons.  Sky's the limit.  

Surprises happen all the time, and they 
often call for celebrating.

Could be tomorrow.  Could be next month.

Could be a friend is moving away suddenly 
and needs a "farewell" party.  Or perhaps a 
"welcome back" party when he returns.

Or when you win a contest or an award, 
so you invite a few friends and throw a 
"congratulations" party to celebrate.

Or when your department at work suddenly 
finds money in the budget and you decide 
to have a company holiday party after all.

Whatever the celebration will be, how can 
you  begin planning right away?

One excellent first move is to ask an 
experienced friend to recommend 
a few great resources.

So here's that Tip I promised you:  

When you're starting at the last minute, 
select a trusted professional (like my 
concierge friend) and get  his or her 
best recommendations.

You know, you can always ask me, too.  
Whatever the event, your own wedding 
reception or a special party, we'll create 
the  perfect mood for celebrating.  

And now that we're talking about 
planning wedding & party music...
New Year's Eve is just  a few weeks away, 
and you might be involved  in planning an 
exciting holiday party .

And if you or a friend are engaged  to get 
married, you might also be involved with 
planning the wedding.

Perhaps both. 

So the next time you or a friend  are looking for
upbeat, elegant music played the way you want, 
preview us at our next public event.
