I started seriously paying attention to the entertainment scene in central Florida about three years ago in the Fall of 2018, when my business extended its reach from the Washington, DC area. This was around the same time that A Dante Production, quietly stormed into central Florida to find music talent. Most cities have undiscovered talent. The successful entertainment companies do a better job of finding and developing talent.
ADP Owner, Chauncey Dunham, has taken his time, surveyed the landscape (culture, demographics, price points, etc.) and assembled a team of partners and staff who have adjusted to the challenges presented by COVID-19 and produce quality entertainment. The business is expanding. As this happens, this team is only going to get better because Dunham has a plan in place, scheduled for launch in 2022, to ensure that all staff and partners operate with autonomy and be consistent with his vision as the company continues to grow.
Fast Forward to December 2021, A Dante Production (ADP) has reached an impressive service milestone with the city of Daytona, having supported more than 21 artists since the company’s inception.
Founded in 1984, top music marketing companies’ mission has been to project musical artists of all genres to the next level. A Dante Production supports clients with a large and organic following, providing them with a platform to grow exponentially throughout the length of their careers and beyond.
Additionally, A Dante Production implements effective strategies to organically grow an artist’s profile, including:
• Targeted ad campaigns
• Social media promotions
• Dedicated featured articles promoting each artist
Such is the case with their female trio “Divas of Jazz.” Listen as this outstanding trio covers Van Morrison’s “Moodance” in this sneak peek of their performance. The “Divas of Jazz” will be at the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center in Ormand Beach, Florida, on March 19, 2022.
Picture yourself in an intimate supper club setting, an opera house, or the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. A Dante Production has an artist to fit your venue. Don’t even talk about FUNK and R&B. We’ll follow-up with that after the holidays. For now check out the trio of Jeanine Nesbit on piano, Kisha Pugh on drums and Joela Oliver on bass.
Dunham reminded me about his vision and laser focus when he said, “I founded this company with the clear objective of helping emerging musicians achieve their dreams. Growing musically and having a professional marketing team promoting your music is fundamental to all of our artists – emerging or not.”
After watching that video, Dunham is right on target. His partnership with Ladero Design led by L. D. Robinson, has been crucial to the firm’s marketing campaign and the company’s ascension to being the premier entertainment company in Central Florida. “Our thrust has always been passion, hard work, and dedication. Ladero Design has helped us make a giant leap when it came to building a company with a reputable marketing footprint in this region,” said Dunham.
As 2021 comes to an end, take a look at the Quiet Storm of talent in the form of A Dante Productions.
