Your entertainment consultant

How may I help you ?

  • I can offer the expertise I was able to gain from being an international performer on stage and back stage, a venue promoter and an international on camera host. Entertainment and event agencies are brought onboard to help the leisure industry, they can book talent and secure the technical aspect, but in terms of ideas, do they bring the real essence of the entertainment ? Not always.


  • I have launched Sound Of Luxury Entertainment on a creative quest to provide expertise, knowledge and ideas to create unparalleled customer experiences and outstanding live entertainment to luxury venues, casinos, boutique hotels and resorts and to make venues and live performance events stand out, the  purpose for the venue/client hosting the event is  to make a profit, build a name, attract new customers, create a sensation.


This is the plan  :


  • # Identify Issues – Often employees are too close to a problem to recognize them. That’s where I come in as a non-biased consultant and assess where processes may be going wrong. I will then be able to provide you with a fresh, objective or viewpoint and strategies that will deliver results and make improvements. I will bring an analytical approach to resolve issues and lead the way forward. These issues may not only surround “live entertainment,” but the issues could be from the moment your customer arrives, to how they obtain their drinks, to the fluidity of the event overall. It’s similar to a “Mystery Shopper” experience, but suited to the world of entertainment and experiences. After initial assessments are made, I will provide you with a proven step by step report of processes to enable success with the project at hand. This methodology will be built and created through their proven experiences, facts and knowledge. I will save you time and energy.


  • # Expertise – Get it right the first time. I have the skills and expertise that your own staff may lack. Have you been booking live entertainment for a while ? Is it attracting customers ? Is it increasing profits ? If it’s not, then what is going wrong ? I can assess why the live entertainment at your venue is not selling out. You may book your entertainment with a well-established entertainment agency, but unless they evaluate your venue, demographic and your business and unless they have vast experience, it can be pointless letting them decide on which live entertainment will suit your venue. Many entertainment agencies can recommend suitable live entertainment to suit your venue and budget, but by hiring Sound Of Luxury entertainment : risks can be reduced because there is less “guess work”. I will make factual assessments, and will work alongside you and your staff, I will evaluate your customers and demographic, your venue and budget and make judgments based on these facts. I will be able to devise a suitable package of entertainment ideas and marketing strategies that will increase foot traffic and revenue in your venue.  


  • # Implement Change – No one likes change, especially not when it makes a person look like they have not been capable of fulfilling their duties. So when a change is needed, I implement changes without worrying about the “corporate culture,” employee morale, or other issues that tend to elicit high emotions. The suggested changes will of course be assessed and vetted by management/owners and the best practices for training and implementation of the new procedures would be put in place.


  • # Teach-  My entertainment consulting includes my specialist skills and knowledge to teach, motivate and develop entertainment strategies, marketing strategies, customer services skills and overall customer experiences. I have been lucky to travel all around the world : it was the occasion to discover different type of cultures and entertainment practices. I worked with all the top actors of the entertainment industry, in Music and in TV : from Top TV producers and venues in Hollywood California to major night clubs such as Space in Ibiza or Palais De Tokyo in Paris  :  I will be aware and on trend with developments in the industry, which can be passed on to you and your employees.


  • # Time – Who in your company has the time to make assessments, gather analytics and implement new developments and strategies? Many senior members of staff already have their days full with important tasks and by implementing another project could be detrimental to daily business functions. I  would be dedicated solely to this project and without interruption will be able to take on the full role of improving and developing the areas required.


  • # Assist you with a venue launch – To Start off on the right foot. I will not second guess entertainment and will come up with a fabulous new idea. I will know what your customers want to experience : together we will perfect strategies and implement procedures across the board that will work for your venue(s).

Testimonials

Aaron J. Braunstein, Hollywood, CA

Strategic Entertainment Consultant, Content Creation Supervision and Rights Management


Raphael is a fantastic live DJ, and since he is one of the few DJ's that plays original music, he is a fantastic remixer as well. Being from Europe, he has extensive knowledge of current world music trends and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a cutting edge club or dance remix, or to anyone looking for an original talent to spin their party or event.

I never got the chance to visit Bungalow 8 in New York City, but when I was offered to come onboard Amy Sacco's new venture : Bungalow 8 in London, I was like : YES. So many stars, so much fun, I remember when Lady Gaga came, how scandalous it was... I cannot say more. What I can say is that each time male top model  David Gandy arrived at the club, all my female guests went nuts.

I will always remember the year I discovered Ibiza, I was in London, bored and needed a change. A friend offered me to spend a season hosting nights for Carwash at El Divino nighclub. I did not know what to expect. I fell in love with Ibiza totally. This is how I got a contract with the club Lola and was able to create "The Wintersound Of Ibiza" It was fun, it was for the locals, it was amazing. Ibiza I love you.

When I received that email from W Doha, I thought, what a great occasion to discover the Gulf, and the hotel looks so cool. I did come along with a lot of Ibiza sound, and hosted the club for 2 full months : what an amazing experience it was. This is when I met the creator of Hed Kandi : Mark Doyle

Santiago, Chile

The Sound Of Luxury at W Hotel Santiago, Chile. 


For two years in a row, the W hotel in Santiago invited me to host events on the rooftop of the hotel. The experience was absolutely phenomenal. I designed a full set of lighting, sound and draft on paper what the soirée was going to look like. We hired a fantastic cameraman : José, who works on "Big Brother Chile" he specialises in reality shows. As soon as I hoped off the plane from Paris, I rushed to the W, hired 2 dancers and created a NYE sensation.
