Berean Baptist Church has started a new series, Gospel Jazz Vespers. The Earl Carter Project was one of our first featured artist. They were FANTASTIC!!! The Earl Carter Project was perfect for getting us off to hugely successful start. They were on time and extremely personable and professional. The music was OUTSTANDING!! You can't go wrong with the Earl Carter Project.
I contracted with The Earl Carter Project to perform as the Live entertainment on a new TV Show I was producing. All I can say is they brought the audience to their feet almost every time they played! They played a variety of songs that took the audience on a journey of hits from the past to the present, not missing a beat. Additionally Earl was one on the most professional people I have ever dealt with in the music industry. He early for the set up and sound check and was ready to go when the show started. I will definitely be using him again!!
What to Expect
We treat each and every show/event as if it were our last and make a genuine effort to exceed the expectations of our clients. We engage our audience, have tons of fun and usually receive a standing ovation at the end of our performances.
