Don Edwards & the Ovations Big Band
SeaSoundStudio Entertainment is very pleased to add Don Edwards & the Ovations Big Band to its roster of bands, entertainers, DJs, musicians and other artists for hire by the general public.
We regret that the popularity of SeaSoundStudio Entertainment among artists seeking representation has temporarily exceeded the agency's ability to add new pages to its website.
Information on this artist will be available on the website soon. Until that time, call Patrice, the Executive Director of SeaSoundStudio Entertainment, at (919) 870-0442 to request more information on this artist.
In addition to considering artists who request representation by SeaSoundStudio Entertainment, Patrice regularly scouts for talent throughout the United States to ensure the availability of the top performing artists to clients in the area. Utilizing her extensive experience in the entertainment industry, Patrice carefully auditions each of these artists to ensure they satisfy the rigorous requirements of SeaSoundStudio Entertainment's "TIPS" Program.
TIPS is an acronym for essential characteristics that every artist represented by SeaSoundStudio Entertainment must consistently demonstrate: Timeliness, Integrity, Professionalism and Satisfaction (of audiences). Through a rigorous screening process and several interviews Patrice confirms that each artist seeking representation by SeaSoundStudio Entertainment satisfies the TIPS Program requirements as well as the following attributes. Through this process, SeaSoundStudio Entertainment ensures that each of its artists satisfies the following high standards that distinguish its artists from artists represented by other local booking agencies:
~Significant experience meeting and exceeding the expectations of live audiences.
~Musical proficiency establishing the artist as one of the most talented in their field for the area, and in many cases one of the top artists in their field in the region or even in the United States. In fact, one of the artists represented by SeaSoundStudio Entertainment is generally recognized as the best artist in his field in the world.
~Excellent reputation for Professionalism, Timeliness and Integrity
~Demonstrated ability to engage audiences in an enjoyable entertainment experience.
Clients of SeaSoundStudio Entertainment can book any of the artists represented by the agency with the assurance that the artist satisfies these stringent requirements and that the artists will thoughtfully and respectfully consider any special requests of the client to improve the entertainment experience. The roster of artists represented by SeaSoundStudio include soloists from the North Carolina Symphony as well as regionally recognized artists and national celebrities.
SeaSoundStudio Entertainment proudly represents a broad variety of entertainers (from harpists and strolling musicians to bag pipers and a Steel Drum Band) who can enhance any special event. Through artists represented by SeaSoundStudio and artists represented by other agencies in her network of contacts, Patrice can provide the right entertainment for your event locally, regionally or nationally from small, private parties to conventions and season series for large theatres.
