The CEO Speaks

Elevating all the A Dante Production events is our goal. Many musicians are playing for peanuts and not getting their worth. Well, maybe that don’t spend time working on their craft to demand more.  All of the musicians working with Dante spend many hours rehearsing and trying to achieve greatness.

I have weekly conversations with our musicians and they are always working on something new, rearranging or writing new music.  They also have to commute to the venues and be dressed properly for a gig. It’s funny when the CEO of Dante gets a call about a gig and a price, the question becomes “Can you lower the price?”  When the answer is no people get offended. However, when the same people go to the gas station, the price is the price.

A Dante Production provides CLASS, and the price is the price. If people want musicians to play cheap then they should not expect to see musicians that are at the TOP of their game.

As the CEO of A Dante production, I make sure all of our musicians not only dress well, they play extremely well. People talk about poor service and the grapevine can kill you, so I have to stay at the top of the game and keep our brand “A Touch of Class” relevant.  Behind the scenes is marketing, attorney fee, printing, sound, venue(s), expenses for flights, transportation, and insurance.  All these things make for a good show.  Cutting corners is not a option for us. In life you deserve the best and A Dante Production will give you just that.  I often get asked to come out and hear someone play, it’s almost embarrassing to say, “NO,” they don’t meet our standards.  We cannot and will not accept the Middle, we only want the best.

“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.”

Nothing happens until you decide. Decide and watch your life move forward.
