Boston Event Works – Closes

Yes – companies come and go in the wedding industry.  Boston Event Works closes. From wedding venues, to photographers to event production companies – you need to know what you are dealing with before giving anyone a deposit.   With a slick website, but no actual staff photos or bios – this can be your first warning.  If  there are no faces to put on the business – something is wrong.  Boston Event Works went out of business and left hundreds of clients in the lurch.  Weddings were prepaid with DJ services that will not be fulfilled.

Time to pull your event plans out of the toilet?  Give Rob a call 413-562-2632 (Yes that’s me) – you are always dealing directly with the owner here and we can help make your next event a success.  We’ve been around for over 30 years and are not going anywhere soon.  Boston Event Works may be bankrupt, but we are going stronger than ever.  See what we can do for your next event.  No worries here.

Bentley University – Bowles Performing Art Showcase – Waltham MA

This is always one of my favorite events that we support at Bentley University.  Their Bowles Performing Arts group gathers talented students to perform in a dinner theater style event at The LaCava Center.    The Bentley Orchestra, Jazz Band performed.  We got to hear Bentley’s Accapela group sing a couple songs.  Thee were talented pianists, SASA dancers and even singer/songwriters on piano.   All in all – a very talented and exciting night.

We brought in the black thick velour backdrop for the stage, up-lighting, stage spots, texture lights on the ceiling and all the sound support for this event.  You can see some images of the performers here.

Umass Amherst – Corporate Event Lighting – Data Center

OK, so we don’t normally get a call to light a construction zone, but for UMass Amherst – this was a necessity.  It was a new building that had not been completed and they wanted to hold a day long conference in the 6th floor laboratory shell.   Oh, did I mention that they only had 4 electrical circuits in the entire room?

Here is the BEFORE photo – what the room looked like when we arrived.

We brought in some of our battery powered LEDs as up-lighting on the columns.  We created track lighting with our LED pinspots for the table top areas.  We bounced high output LEDs off the shiny metal ceiling tiles in one area.  They brought in trees and we used our thick tall black drapery to soften the sound in the room and keep sunlight from the video screen surface.

Check out some of the photos from that day below.
