    2. The Castle Dream concept:

      When you are planing an event, you have to decide if you want to hire musicians who play parties because they can't get a better gig, or musical professionals who have made it their life's work to provide quality music for individuals and organizations...because it is true that there are musicians who have a deep pride in being able to perform at the highest levels in non-concert settings. Castle Dream is run by just such a musician, and our musicians are all of a similar mentality. They represent the best that New York has to offer, not just in ability, but in knowing how to play at a party, a wedding, a corporate dinner, or a political event.

      Contrary to popular belief, playing parties is an art. It is not just how you play, but how you look, and most importantly, how you act. We believe that musicians should be treated with respect but they also must earn respect. This means mastering the subtleties of interacting with all kinds of people. It's about the small things, like wearing appropriate clothing, walking gingerly through the crowd, keeping the performing area neat and clean, knowing when to nod, or smile, or walk away. It's about sensing when to play, when to stop, and what to play. It's about smoothing out stressful situations, and demonstrating grace under pressure. Ultimately, it's about experience and professionalism.

      The one who throws a party wants to feel like the owner of a castle, inviting his or her guests into a special place, and the production should flow effortlessly like a dream. This is the goal of Castle Dream Productions, and this is the meaning behind our name.

      Let Castle Dream make your dream a reality!
