Salute to Chevrolet’s 100 Years!

The Cast for “Salute to Chevrolet’s 100 Years” Production Show

Essence Entertainment had the honor of producing “Salute to Chevrolet’s 100 Years” for Jeff Boand, President, and the Southern California Chevy Dealers Association.  The event was held at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena, on Saturday, February 25th, 2012.

Our clients say it best – here is what Jeff Boand had to say:

What a great job you did for us – could not have been better!   The videos of old cars / ads etc were truly inspired.   Everyone was commenting on the show…………we have had several over the years of the SCCDA but not as clever and professional.  In fact – one long time dealer (over 40 years) told me that it was the best SCCDA event he had ever attended. 
Needless to say I will be getting calls and inquiries for your talents and services.   Darlene and I look forward to working with you again.   Please let everyone know they helped make our event truly memorable.

Mike had the assistance of Choreographer Tatiana Turan, Technical Director Tony Sandoval (TS Productions), Brad Powell Band,  Barbara Wallace, Event Coordinator, and Stage Manager (& Performer) Robin Kelly.  Laura Reynolds accommodated our every need at The Langham and is very much appreciated.

Hi Mike,
Everyone seems to have been ecstatic about the production on Saturday night.  I certainly was and Jeff and Darlene said they felt it was a flawless evening.  Thanks for making it so memorable for all the guests.  Comments we heard were that they loved the old Chevy footage a lot (“where did they get it?”) and everyone had their favorite decade and song to identify with. I can’t imagine how it could have had any broader appeal to all age groups than the way you wrote it.  I am so glad that we got to work together…

Please let your cast members know that they and their hard work are very appreciated.
We loved Erika (“Holly Golightly”, Breakfast at Tiffany’s) so much, too. She was perfect and added a wonderful touch to the whole weekend.

“As always, I am flattered that Barbara Wallace once again had the confidence in Essence Entertainment to recommend us to Jeff, SCCDA, and I’m delighted that Jeff had faith that we would create a one-of-a-kind experience for his guests.”  —  Mike Steffens

    WOW! Sounds like it was a terrifically successful show! Of course, I would expect nothing less from Essence Entertainment, especially when run by an exemplary stage manager such as Robin Kelly. She looks wonderful in the photo, too! Go Girl!
