Laurent's band was Perfect at huge fundraiser in Danville, CA

Donors enjoyed the band and increased their donations

Laurent's band added the inspiration and the music at a fund raiser for youth and adults. For this Black Tie gala, providing the right music and a good auctioneer gave "hope" by raising much needed funds for a local non-profit. Laurent exceeded expectations by making a site inspection prior to his performance and by accessorizing his band's attire to the color scheme at the Diablo Country Club, Diablo. Laurent's music spanned the decades, from smooth jazz from the 50's to disco and funk from the 80's.

The event planner was pleased: "Stan,
Thank you for all your help in coordinating this! Laurent and his group were fantastic and we enjoyed an amazing evening. We raised more money this year than at any other event. I appreciated how helpful Laurent was in planning as well as in touching base with me the evening of the event."

Martial Arts instructor whips five year olds into Shape

Kung Pow master teaches Kids karate moves

Forget about the turtles, forget about the rangers, for kids who model themselves after Superheroes and WWE superstars, Brian is the perfect kid entertainer. Kung Pow master Brian led the kids in safe Karate moves at a five year old birthday in Oakland. He also taught good sportsmanship and encouraged the kids to exercise. Brian later made sword balloons and played "Happy Birthday" on his trumpet for his show finale.  

The birthday boy's Mom was impressed:

""Hi Stan, 

Brian was great. He arrived a little early set up and really kept the kids entertained. I have rarely seen the kids go engaged for the length of the entire show. He even had little gifts for the kids which I wasn't anticipating. He was also very thoughtful - left extra balloon swords for the kids in case the set we had burst."
