Friend of Contemporary and top-tier comic, Cedric the Entertainer and his sister Sharita Kyles Wilson has hosted the SSM Health “Not So Silent Night” Gala every December since their late mother Rosetta Boyce Kyles was a cancer patient. Per SSM Health, their belief in the SSM Health mission and their efforts to raise funds for women’s health in the region are significant.
For years, Contemporary has been tasked with helping produce a “Not So Silent Night”, including theme-driven all-out parties. At the most recent gala, Cedric performed with FatPocket, a Contemporary exclusive party band, to get all guests on their feet with songs like “Hot in Herre”, “Return of the Mac” and more. Our team handles all A/V production, theme development, interactive games for guests, run of show and more. Donning ugly Christmas sweaters and feeling the holiday spirit, Cedric has helped SSM Health raise funds for a great cause.
Novus International Anniversary
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.
