When entertaining parties with music and entertainment, the DJs and emcees at Pied Piper DJ Entertainment won’t get rowdy unless hosts want them to. That’s because they’ve been hand-selected based on their abilities to set the appropriate tone to complement weddings, graduations, and corporate events. In addition leading festivities, the team also organizes events and augments festivities with add-ons such as photo-booth rentals, bubble and fog machines, and karaoke.
Pictures at an Exhibition mates digitally projected visual art with composer Charles Pillow’s modern jazz suite to create a multimedia event that enchants both the eyes and ears. The format for this event was inspired by esteemed Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, whose iconic 1874 piano suite was sparked by the work of artist and architect Viktor Hartmann. Building on that idea, guest artist Charles Pillow will use musical themes from Mussorgsky to form an original piece, using members of the CNY Jazz Orchestra and adding guitar, harp, and vocalese. Blending this modern piece with visual art provided by the Orange Line Gallery gives this nineteenth century work a twenty-first century feel that pleases music lovers, art enthusiasts, and time-traveling bohemians alike.
