It's not where you take things from-
IT'S WHERE YOU TAKE THEM TO.
WHO WE ARE:
Whether performing, producing, or managing, Drew found himself immersed in the entertainment industry from a very young age. He was introduced to the event scene in Palm Beach, FL performing along side his mom, a concert pianist. During these early years, his passion for the entertainment industry grew as he took to the road touring - sometimes producing the very concert he was playing. For Drew, the different aspects of entertainment, logistics, and client relations are what keep Harbor Entertainment on the cutting of edge of today’s event’s industry.
When not on the event site, Drew continues to play his drums. Whether a pick-up band or a session with friends, music is where this all began. He is also a licensed pyrotechnician… after all you never know when that might come in handy!
“It is all about the team you build and the relationships that create a successful working environment. I am truly lucky to have that every day… not to mention great coffee, and being able to bring my dog, Lou, Nashville’s true road dog to the office.”
Immersed from a very young age in the performing arts as a dancer, Kasey is no stranger to the stage. Her love for both the performing and visual arts led her to degrees in Industrial Design and Dance Studies from Appalachian State University. This unique combination opens an endless array of possibilities that is incorporated into every project she produces. With a natural eye for what truly works, and a no holds barred attitude, she brings each client’s ideas to life both on and off the page.
When Kasey isn’t working on an event, she is building custom jewelry, dancing with contemporary dance companies, and teaching Yoga.
Kasey also has a skill set in making a mean pot of french press coffee and maintaining a certain level of ridiculousness in the office – Nerf Guns and prank wars are encouraged.
IT WAS ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS THAT REALLY SHOWED US EXACTLY HOW COUNTRY FEELS.
