Moving Forward to Grow
Hello to everyone visiting my brand new website.
This is a very exciting time for my band as we move forward to grow the Danny Kramer Dance Band brand. (Try saying that three times in a row fast) I am proud to say that my band has gone from just a few bookings a year in the beginning, to becoming the busiest Corporate/Wedding band in the province.
I knew that it was time for a complete rebranding from a new website to a new logo and you are looking at the final results. I really hope that you like it as much as I do, because we could never have become as successful as we are without the word of mouth from people like yourself. The fact is that even with all the advertising that I do, the great majority of our business comes from referrals. Of course we are very fortunate here to have such great hotels and world class event planners and I am proud to say that most of the top ones recommend my band.
This past summer we performed for the third wedding from the same family. As each of the young adults from the family got engaged and then finally married, they all hired the Danny Kramer Dance Band. What an honour! We’ve had some of our corporate clients for almost 10 years. Once again, what an honour! We have been a part of fundraisers that have cumulatively raised millions of dollars over the years, and I am so grateful to be a part of this.
Gratitude. That is a word that you will hear me and my band members speak often. Gratitude, to be able to perform music for a living for such wonderful events. Beholding the speeches at a wedding with the beautiful sentiments and all the Love in the room reminds us deeply of the love we have for those in our own lives. Being able to be a part of fundraisers where we see so many people working so hard to raise as much money as possible for these worthy causes is very humbling. They do that difficult task, that serious work, and yet they create an evening of absolute fun of dining and dancing for all the guests. And we get to be a part it. Yes we are very grateful.
When I started this band I knew that it would take more than just great musicianship to become successful. I needed to surround myself with musicians who cared as much as I did. I knew it was about ENTERTAINMENT not just musicality, and that it was also about providing a service that was effortless for my clients. Having performed thousands of events over the years from live performance, to live radio, to live TV, to major theatre and of course my Dance Band, I have faced just about every situation you can think of in the entertainment industry. I was even a piano player in a circus for time period. (That was a rough one) I employ this wealth of knowledge to all the events we perform to ensure that the entertainment portion of your celebration is done perfectly.
In future blogs I’ll be telling you about some of the lessons I’ve learned from these experiences. I’ll also be blogging above the wonderful musicians I have in my band. I have so many experiences to share with you and observations that I will share from future events. I hope that you will join me on this blog as we move the Danny Kramer Dance Band onto even bigger successes.
Of course if you or anybody that you know ever needs any live entertainment, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
