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.
Seasoned boat captains and crustacean prospectors Sig Hansen, Johnathan Hillstrand, and Andy Hillstrand gather to share with audience members their tales of struggle and survival during crab season on the high seas, as partly documented by the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. Fishing the Bering Sea in the middle of winter demands strong wills—which can come together in times of treacherous weather and 100-foot waves or come to blows about who performs better in the three-legged crabwalk race. Selected audience members will also have the chance to don the survival suits from the Time Bandit. Following the story-swapping and previously unreleased video footage, greenhorns and avid fans will have the opportunity to launch questions at the captains, wave giant foam claws, and learn how to communicate in claw-snap Morse code.
