Platinum Band Atlanta was honored to perform for the Annual Chairman's Gala in January
In my previous ( and very first post) I talked about how long Platinum has been providing entertainment in the Atlanta and Southeast and our love of the job we do.
Now I want to talk about why we have been so successful and why most of our business comes from referrals and repeat business. I think any great band has to have a recipe of several things: first and foremost, impeccable integrity both on and off the stage. A band must be well rehearsed with superior musicians and vocalists. Platinum members have a high regard for their craft. Each person in our band is blessed with a raw talent they we have all honed with discipline and practice. 2. Teamwork. You cannot make magic if you don't have a "we are a team", mentality. As a long time performer, I have been in several situations where either the connection is there or not. Each person is either focused on themselves or the larger task at hand: putting on a great show. I'm proud that we have ALWAYS had a charisma that I believe comes from the attitude we each have about our end goal. Be the best, be the most fun, be the band that your guests say is , " the best band we've ever seen". 3. Attitude. I say this a lot but I believe it. It is my personal business philosophy: Don't boast just show up and do it. Be the best, be the most professional, best dressed especially with a great attitude and the rest will take care of itself!
Managing Platinum Band Atlanta has been both an honor and a privilege. Managing a variety dance band has it's challenges for sure but as a performer and a person who absolutely loves seeing the pure joy on a guest's face as they dance and celebrate, there are few things I love more than this job. Whether it's a year-end corporate celebration or the happiness on a father of the bride's face as I danced with him and sang his favorite song to him, those are the moments. That is our joy and why we do it, all of us in Platinum. We love this job!!! My second home is my work after my family.
What makes Platinum the "best band in the city' as I'm told very often by our colleagues and repeat clients? It's that love of music and performing that is in our blood and continues with the same passion after literally hundreds of gigs and and hundreds of miles traveled to walk into a building set up, dress up, warm up and show up to give you the "night of your lives". We hope that we continue to share our gifts with you for years to come and we thank each and every person that put your faith in us in years past. See you on the stage...Virginia
