We bring a live band into corporate work spaces and use music as a medium to demonstrate the concepts of active listening and working together as a team.
A typical Pop-Up Music evening consists of part talk part live performance. During the talk we will discuss things like the basic building blocks of music like form, basic harmony, what improvising is, and how to hear emotional content. We also have a talk about how an 18 piece big band works together as a team to make great music. The Pop-Up Bands are all seasoned professionals from the Boston area. After the lecture part of the evening, we do a straight ahead set and make sure everyone in the room has a freaking blast.
We are targeting hip companies that provide a lot of amenities to their employees. We want to go in to cultures where people are happy and eager to learn, have a healthy mix of backgrounds, ages, genders, and experience sets. We are envisioning a local like a well funded startup with a "googlesque" office environment.
Our hope is to convey that we talk about timeless ideas using material both classic and modern, can provide an evening of great knowledge sharing that is a lot of fun at the same time. And that we are a group of serious musicians and great people who are here to play music at a really high level of professionalism with lots of energy.
