    Not another DJ - BUT a SPECIAL touch to your venue

    DJ's are a dime a dozen.. live music - sets your event apart!!! Having a live band adds a special touch to any venue - remember the experiencing a live performance and feeling the music? SO when you have that "first" dance wouldn't it be wonderful to have the music sang to you? City Connection has all styles of music entertainers and lighting for moods - they have it all. All my guests commented on the enjoyment of having live music instead of the canned DJ - You should check out City Connection - you'll realize that the price is comparable and you get MUCH more.

    City Connections provided my daughter’s wedding with an incredible band that was excellent to the end. Guests are still calling me to complement the band.

owner, music director

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.
