The only problem is while you have amazing taste, you’re not a musical virtuoso.

You know selecting the right music will put the finishing touches on the elegant event you’ve carefully planned and envisioned.

Founder and owner of The Harp Salon.

After all the meticulous planning and extraordinary effort of your last event did you:

  • Think your party was like every other party in town, with nothing new, fresh or unique?

  • Fret about the awkward silences, bored guests and people who seemed to make excuses to leave early?

  • Worry about the music being too loud, wrong for the event or even worse totally off key?

  • Feel like something was just off and it could have been better?  

  • Become exasperated by the lack of professionalism from the people you hired?
