With the right entertainment, a work event can turn into a night that goes down in workplace history. Novus, a global corporation, came to us to book a headliner that would wow guests at their international anniversary event — and the Contemporary team delivered.

We analyzed their event budget and sent them a list of artists that fit the bill — from there, Rick Springfield was promptly booked by our team. Novus had never booked a national headliner before so we made the process as simple as possible and handled everything from production to rider fulfillment. The event was hosted in Sheldon Concert Hall, where everything went without a hitch. Springfield proved to be the perfect fit for the event, where he played a number of recognizable originals like Jessies Girl as well as surprise covers including Katy Perry’s “Roar.” A perfect act for a corporate event, Rick Springfield mixed together a diverse setlist with tons of crowd interaction and stories from his career.

Our team takes pride in providing incredible experiences that create long-term client relationships. Since their corporate anniversary party, Novus continually turns to us to book their holiday party entertainment including top party bands 12South and Lost Wax. We look forward to what the future holds for our partnership.

Sometimes a client comes to us wanting to throw an over-the-top surprise party but doesn’t have a concept quite in mind beyond spectacular entertainment in an immersive environment. For this one-of-a-kind birthday celebration we worked closely to covertly discover tastes and interests of the guest of honor without ruining the surprise!

In discovery we learned that she was an avid fan of the yacht rock genre and that Michael McDonald was one of her favorite artists. After working through various themes, we landed on branding the entire event as a tropical yacht party. The theme was fully integrated through custom décor pieces, photo ops, a massive palm installation on a temporary drop ceiling, themed greeters, gorgeous florals and of course, Michael McDonald himself! Support entertainment included DJ Micro and Brian Owens.

With flawless execution the guest of honor arrived without having the surprise spoiled and friends and family had an unforgettable evening!
