Great Show

The Blue Potatoes performed at a toddler event fundraiser on Long Island. Jessica was incredibly responsive and enthusiastic from the point of first contact. She took the time to understand the cause and event style, and was even open to have the band learn and perform a very special song. The band was dynamic and engaging, and able to 'read' the audience when it was time for a break. Everyone was incredibly talented!

706 Music

706 Music was founded by flutist/composer/ mulit-instrumentalist Jessica Valiente in 2010, after nearly 30 years of working in New York City and the surrounding areas as a freelance musician and ensemble leader. Her three decades of experience in the classical, jazz and world music arenas have helped her to create a nearly limitless list of professional contacts and an excellent rapport with clients, presenters and musicians

706 Music engages professional live musicians and ensembles for weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs, block parties, fundraisers, and much, much more. Our roster of artists includes variety/wedding bands, classical chamber music ensembles, small and large jazz combos, children's bands and juvenile performers, and global music from every corner of the world. Our artists and associates perform the music of Appalachia, New Orleans, Latin America and Brazil, the Caribbean, Ireland and the British Isles, Italy, Germany, Eastern Europe, and beyond!

Many of our associated artists are internationally-recognized concert artists. 706 Music can make all arrangements to book any of our artists for a public performance in your venue.

706 Music has many years of experience in full-scale concert production, particularly fundraisers and charity events. We are more than just another entertainment agency. It is our goal to create a fair and mutually beneficial working relationship between musicians and the people who hire them. 706 Music will always give the client the fair, real price in the first quote, a transparent list of costs, all while respecting the musicians' time and talent. 706 Music also cares about the greater good, and frequently offers our services to worthy charitable causes.
