KICKING BACK WITH ANDY GRAMMER

In our last blog post, we shared how liquid chef Rob Floyd created “edible sensory adventures” for the guests at the Women of Today x The Vintage Round Top media dinner. This time, we want to share a little more about the evening’s auditory entertainment: an acoustic performance from singer-songwriter Andy Grammer (scroll down for video clips!).

 

Born and raised in L.A., Andy was discovered by a talent manager while busking and selling demo CDs on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. He went on to release multi-platinum feel-good pop hits like “Keep Your Head Up, “ “Fresh Eyes,” and “Honey, I’m Good.” Andy treated our guests with these songs and some new material, playing an intimate, personal acoustic set right in the Boho cottage great room!

The Boho great room—before and after.

Although we’d initially planned for Andy to perform on our outdoor patio, unseasonably cold weather forced us to move things indoors. Luckily, the ultra-talented team at Loot Rentals was able to pull off a complete breakdown and set-up in under thirty minutes, transforming Boho’s great room from a banquet-style dining room setup to a luxe lounge. While guests enjoyed Rob’s after-dinner dessert cocktails and Brazilian brigadeiros from Rio Bites, the Loot staff sprang into action to create this tranquil, candle-lit indoor lounge.

To complement the relaxed nature of the performance and encourage guests to feel a personal connection to Andy’s performance, Loot styled a low-lying sectional, poufs, and floor pillows over a collection of textured area rugs. They also created a secondary seating area with high-top bar tables and chairs to ensure that everyone had a clear view of the performance.

The result was a cozy, stylish space where guests could relax and connect to the music. Andy put everyone at ease with jokes and the personal stories that inspired his songs. He brought tears to many eyes (especially mine) with his stories about his mom and the lessons she passed down to him about women’s empowerment—which fit right into the Women of Today’s mission. The performance quickly turned into a sing-along—which everyone joined in!
