There are so many elements to a great performance.  Music, of course, is key.  But, choreography can also make or break your act.  That's why we partner with one of the premier choreographers and dancers in the U.S…Miss Kimmie Gipson.  Kimmie, who is a former dancer for the Philadelphia 76ers and has performed and choreographed for esteemed artists such as Beyonce and Drake  -- and is actually on tour in Europe with Beyonce at the moment! -- helps make Party on the Moon and all of our National Party Band performances move to great heights.

In Napoleon Hill’s famous book “Think and Grow Rich,” he talks about The Master Mind group. He describes the group as two or more people working together for the same goal in a sprit of harmony.

So, after my partner Ed Duncan and I decided to launch the band, we brought in Dalton Marketing Group.

At Party on the Moon, one of our key goals is to get our guests on the dance floor and keep them dancing during our entire performance.   I am pleased to say we almost always achieve that goal.  How?  Practice, practice, practice.

In Malcolm Gladwell’s book, The Tipping Point, he studies the lives of some of the most successful people in the world, including Bill Gates, Paul McCartney, Tiger Woods and many more from the arts, business and sports industries. One of the concepts in the book is the 10,000-hour rule: it takes 10,000 hours to become skilled and proficient.

Most of us will be focused on giving to those special people we care about this holiday season. We have all heard, “It is better to give than receive.” But, sometimes, receiving can be a powerful thing. I encourage you this holiday season to not only focus on giving, but also to reflect and give thanks for all the opportunities and gifts you’ve received this year.

Have you heard of Taido?  It’s a martial arts practice based on a positive philosophy that promotes teamwork, giving your best effort, the fact there is always something to learn and a “never give up” spirit. This is why in Taido, a black belt means “Shogun or beginner”.  When you earn your black belt, you are not finished with Taido, you now have all the fundamentals to continue to learn and improve.  In fact, a great teacher will take you to the next level before you master the level you are on.

If you are a Bruce fan, then you know that on his European tour this summer, his shows have been running three-and-a-half hours plus, and that’s without a break. In fact, the Boss has been playing without an intermission since his Reunion Tour in 1999. We say Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have it right.

My career has been driven by several principles that I believe are important to incorporate into any endeavor. For instance, I believe there’s real power in co-creating, and when two or more are gathered in a spirit of support, wonderful things happen.
