Hello everyone! My name is Katie.
I recently graduated with a business marketing degree from the Lubar School of Business at UW-Milwaukee. I am now working for ACA Music & Entertainment as a digital marketer and I couldn’t be more thrilled! This means I will be helping run and create content for our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more. And of course the blog, starting now with my first post!
For my first blog post I wanted to talk about music, one of the main focuses of our company. As summer quickly approaches, it marks the start of outdoor music season (my favorite season). This means enjoying the awesome music of live bands, DJs, and solo musicians while sitting outside soaking up some sun, or under the stars. Last weekend I went to my first outdoor music concert of the season, Sound Set in St.Paul, MN. It was an absolute blast. The lineup included over 30 talented artists, on 5 different stages, over a time span of 12 long hours. The festival also included things such as a car show, a skateboarding competition, specialty food trucks, live artists (such as spray-painters and chalk artists decorating the sides of buildings), and of course live music. There’s just something about live music that is so special. The energy that the artists bring to the stage, the crowd involvement, and the emotions they portray make a live song 100x better than listening to the same song through a pair of headphones. The crowd atmosphere really helps to make the experience even better, too. It’s so cool when 30,000 people all hold up cell phones to light up the sky, or put their arms up and sway them back-and-forth at the same time. While it ended up completely down pouring during the last act of the night, we all stayed and danced in the rain for the last couple songs! It was definitely something I’ll never forget.
If you are like me (and most others), and love live music check out our Upcoming Events section on our website. This is where you can find what live entertainment is happening near you! We have a bunch of talented musicians playing at different locations almost every week; restaurants, casinos, fairs, and more.
Whether you want to host a company picnic, work event, wedding, graduation party, or anything else, we have an awesome array of musicians and live entertainment options for you to make your event special and memorable. They can be found on the Entertainment page.
No matter what genre of music you like, always remember “You can’t download a live musical experience!” –unknown.
What live acts are you guys looking forward to seeing most this summer? Let us know in the comment section below!
