Cuban Themed Party

Visiting Foreign VIPs Reception

We brought the Sophisticated Experience into The Georgian fine dining restaurant in The Fairmont Olympic Hotel. 


There is more to the Sophisticated Experience than the performance and delivery of our great sounding musical groups.  The Whole Sophisticated Experience encompasses the entire process from beginning to end of choosing the band, booking, planning, communication, and the day-of-the-event performance.  


As your Music and Events Maestro, it is my goal to make the entire process of working with us to be as easy and simple as can be.  We want to make sure that the whole process will be as much a pleasurable experience as our live musical performance will be to your guests.  There is so much more than simply hiring a musical group and having the musicians show up on the day of the event.


The pre-event planning and communication leading up to the day are essential and vital to the success of the event. Allow me to explain what the Whole Sophisticated Experience is about for you and for the success of your event.  Click to read more
