Association of Zoos & Aquariums
AZA Virtual Concert
Country Stars Come Together for Animals
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums came to us to manage and book entertainment to make a lasting impression on their virtual stage. With the help of our event management, production and booking services, we helped the AZA put on a completely virtual benefit concert to build awareness of the financial impact AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums faced during the pandemic and raise funds with each ticket going towards the care of zoo facilities.
This star-studded streamed event was emceed by Cody Alan from Country Music Television’s Hot 20 Countdown and featured original performances from all-star country artists Brad Paisley, Old Dominion, Ashley McBryde, Riley Green, Jessie James Decker, Shy Carter and Wynonna.
We produced the concert at their chosen on-site location from Nashville Zoo at Grassmere and the Steel Mill studios in Nashville, Tennessee, booked their impressive list of country music entertainment and managed all the details in between — making a lasting impact on our country’s zoos and aquariums.
The 80s Cruise
Cruise Ship Iconic Shows
For years Entertainment Cruise Productions hires us to program an all 80s lineup for the eponymous 80s Cruise — balancing musical styles and filling multiple stages over the span of a week. Iconic artists who have graced the stage have included Rick Springfield, Belinda Carlisle, Kenny Loggins, Berlin, Dee Snider, Lita Ford, Bret Michaels, Morris Day & The Time, Night Ranger, Modern English, The Human League, to 80s tribute act Jessie’s Girl and more.
We go above and beyond the concerts by having artists and celebrity emcees host non-musical activities on the ships including game shows, wine tastings and cooking classes. We work alongside cruise ship representatives and artists to coordinate marketing pieces such as video shoutouts to share on social media as well as Q&A responses for a newsletter.
