So the agent says to me, “So, how quickly do you want to get your feet wet as a promoter? The a cappella group Straight No Chaser is on the road and we need to fill a gap in the tour … would you like to make an offer?” That was just six weeks ago … I didn’t even have a name for my business yet! But I loved Straight No Chaser the moment I heard them. The group was exactly what I had been envisioning for my yet-to-be business – artistically brilliant, spontaneous, engaging, perhaps a little mischievous, and full of funny.
So with this short note, I am very excited to share with you all the establishment of my new small promoting business, Freckle Entertainment & Management, LLC and Freckle’s first event, Straight No Chaser, at the Charleston Music Hall on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 8:00 PM. More about Freckle later … what you really need to know is about Straight No Chaser, a 10-man group re-inventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape. Their artistry is extraordinary and frankly, they are just darn funny! Just wait until you hear some of the creative musical arrangements and what these guys can do with their voices. It is astounding … and they sure are good-looking too!
I am a promoter now, so I can’t be shy … get your tickets now! Please join Freckle Entertainment for its debut event! I suspect there will be a glass or two of champagne afterwards and I would love for you all to join me in celebrating the launch of this crazy venture!
