Music is one of my sincerest passions. I have been a swing music aficionado since 1996, and haven’t looked back. From Goodman to Stout, Django to Pinetop, and Ellington to Miller, if they file it under swing at Canterbury Records, then I’m in! Classic big band swing is at the heart of my collection; its chock full of great tracks from Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, and Artie Shaw. But I would be remiss if I stunted the description of my collection with only those selections. Small groups, boogie woogie, trad jazz and Gypsy have a happy home in my collection as well.
The host of an event, whether it is a wedding, party or a dance competition, is often overlooked. There is more science behind being a successful host than one might think. Ensuring correct pronunciation, annunciation and articulation, are paramount attributes when looking for the right person to host your event. But it goes beyond that. A host is the direct connection between you and your event. The host is the first line of defense, the primary individual that your guests will encounter, and the one your guests will look to for information and instruction. Successful hosts have a commanding presence, are entertaining to your guests, and take on the responsibility of representing the event, ensuring, to the best of their ability, the success of the event.
