A Li’l Bit Country & A Li’l Bit Rock-N-Roll Recently, we discussed those who may aspire to be the next Steven Spielberg or Penny Marshall… and how that dream might NOT be far-fetched! However, for others, this ambition takes on a different form – to follow in the footsteps of Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Dr. Dre or Dolly Parton. However, have you ever noticed ONE thing all musical superstars – from Taylor Swift to Garth Brooks, and countless more – have in common? In a word, SHOWMANSHIP!
Yes, they are all stellar musicians, as anyone who has ever listened to their music can readily testify. But we STILL queue up when concert tickets go on sale, and willingly pay hundreds (or THOUSANDS) of dollars for prime seats and perks to see our favorite artists live!
And, that doesn’t even take into account the obligatory musician “merch” or event parking or any refreshments… all of which we could easily enjoy from the comfort of our homes. Put on your favorite T-shirt, crank up the stereo or TV surround sound, mix up a blender full of margaritas, and you’re good to go, for a FRACTION of the cost and inconvenience. Right? WRONG!!! Why? Because we want to be able to say we were THERE to see them “put on a good show!”
It’s ALLLLL about “the show”… the LIVE experience… those “you had to be there” moments you can share and relive with your friends. Honestly, it doesn’t really matter if it’s an intimate club date or a stadium extravaganza, or even if the musician has sold scores of platinum albums or is just your favorite local chanteuse. Bottom line, it’s about seeing your favorite artist “put on a show.”
Which means, if you want to “make it” as a professional musician, you BETTER have some “showmanship” and become known for your ability to put on “a SHOW!” Now, we KNOW everyone doesn’t have to budget or means to put on a star-spangled visual spectacle… especially those just getting their start or with modest production capabilities. WHAT – you DON’T travel to gigs with tractor trailers full of lighting rigs and dozens of roadies?!? Hey, you can STILL give ‘em a show!
And the BEST part… it DOESN’T take an entire army of lighting and pyrotechnical experts! With our premium sparklers a little “sparkling showmanship” can easily be inserted into your set list. You can even distribute them among your fans, depending upon the venues. However, the quality of our pyrotechnics allows them to be welcomed – and even recommended – by many sites and vendors!
We have developed strong partnerships across the country, working with vendors from all avenues to create memorable, CUSTOMIZED “shows” that will have people talking for months (or maybe even YEARS) into the future about the level of showmanship they witnessed. And, if you want to capture that elusive musical magical experience, just give us a call or drop us an email. So whether you’re a little bit country in your musical talents, or your gifting leans a little bit more toward rock-n-roll, adding some “showmanship sizzle” can take you one step closer to that Grammy!
