Every Thanksgiving Eve, The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau holds their annual luncheon, as the largest industry event in the Philadelphia area. The event brought in about 1250 people to the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, and were greeted by guest speakers such as Mayor Michael Nutter
BVTLive’s Inspired Emotions musicians provided the entertainment for this event in a unique fashion. John Callaghan provided elegant tunes on the piano during the meet and greet reception. Musicians were strategically placed on opposite sides of the venue, each on their own stage as guests entered through the doors. On the left stage was the nationally accomplished saxophonist, Andrew Neu. The right stage was controlled by electric cellist, Alfred Goodrich. In the middle stage, Jellyroll’s Mark Teague (guitar) and Brian Fitzgerald (electric violin) brought together both Andrew and Alfred for eclectic, enjoyable tunes to accompany the afternoon’s atmosphere. Do not miss the video below to see Mark and Brian’s rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.
BVTLive! would like to thank Jennifer Roberts and The PHLCVB for having our artists at this high profile event.
