CASE STUDY: NATIONAL CORPORATE SHOW
GOLDMAN SACHS 10,000 SMALL BUSINESS SUMMIT – WASHINGTON D.C.
MORE THAN JUST A BAND: FAMILY
The Detroit Retro Society was recently asked to from produce the music at the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Summit in Washington D.C., the country’s largest gathering of small business ownership ever.

CASE STUDY: PRIVATE CHARITY HOUSE PARTY
THE BÄRTFIELDINGER TRIO BRINGS THE VIBE TO “REAL MEN WEAR PINK”
MORE THAN JUST A BAND: A VIBE
The Detroit Retro Society team has a ton of options when it comes to music styles, band size, and personnel choices. One such sub-group of the team is The Bärtfieldinger Trio. Comprised of three of Michigan’s music accomplished musicians, this team has decades of experience choosing and performing jazz, cocktail hour, jazz concert and special event music to entertain and delight audiences near and far.
Music sets the vibe and lets the event attendees settle in to a relaxing and celebratory mood, but it’s not the only piece of the equation. Sometimes the room needs to look the part as well. On this event for a “Real Men Wear Pink” private charity fundraiser party, our team was struck by the beauty of the space for the event when they walked through for a site visit. They easily could have brought instruments, played some music and left… but their years of experience in planning and producing events kicked in. They made some simple suggestions about room set up, band placement, the use of the owner’s piano, and most importantly, LIGHTING. Having all of the production equipment for events big and small, the team brought a truck load of extra lights, a PA system for the charity auction, and set the VIBE for the party from the moment the attendees arrived until the time they left that fit the pink theme, delighted the attendees and helped the event be a success for the charity.
If you need suggestions for amplifying your events’ vibe, don’t be afraid to reach out to our team!
