Colin Ogg | Instrumental Ensemble Coordinator & Violinist.
Many people who seek out the services of musicians for an event, be it a wedding, party, or corporate event, don’t truly understand or recognize the amount of time and effort that goes into ensuring that the musicians gathered to perform can form a cohesive ensemble. I have 66 musicians on my roster who get regular calls from me for gigs, and a good deal of thought goes into the “WHO” of the requested ensemble. Because my roster includes musicians from many different walks of life, and many different professional or semi-professional backgrounds, I must make sure that I assemble an ensemble of musicians who can play well together, and who can understand the intricacies of style.

Outsiders are unware of the grind and hard work you really have to put in. Iguess because there is a new artist everyday but you still have to work! Read more>>
Michelle S. Thomas | Your Relationship Surgeon
I believe that outsiders are unaware of how much work goes on behind the scenes to reach a higher level of success.

Jayla Babin | Lash Tech & Hair stylist
One thing about my industry that outsiders are more than likely unaware of is the toll it takes over your body and your mind. People tend to think doing hair and lashes is a simple job or “hobby”. It’s not that simple one minor mistake you can poke someones eye, damage their lash line, damage their natural hair, etc. Standing for endless hours with no break, sitting for hours at a time with no break is tiresome. I’m here to tell you take at least a 30 minute break if need between a few clients because if not you’ll run yourself into overkill. Read more>>
