Wow, what a ride. Prior to developing City Connection I toured and performed as a musician. Ten feet from stardum, working with some of the biggest names in the indurstry. I started CCE in the late 80's and was one of the first in the LA area to provide videos for couples like yourself to see the talent. It was a huge success since most of the time it was impossible for couples to actually hear the groups perform at someone elses wedding. I also performed the groups acting as MC, MD a vocalist and guitarist.

I now manage the groups but no longer perform in them. However my passion for music has turned to production, arranging and developing talent. We work with some of the top entertainers available for private, corporate and show events. Only industry professionals are offered. I personally vet everyone assuring quality and reliability.

Call me, text me or email. I have a lot share with you to make your event amazing.

Each facet of the service benefits from years of experience and each detail that makes for a truly perfect wedding has been thought through and mastered by each person making the music happen. CCE works with experienced, professional musicians who care about the details that make your event memorable. I strongly suggest consulting CCE when considering live music for any event - they have the know how and the experience to do it right.
