Essence Entertainment does so much more than simply hire the musicians and entertainers to perform at your special event. People keep going back to them for the unique way they service their clients, as they handle all aspects of the engagement.
In business for over 30 years, Essence Entertainment is not only the largest agency in Orange County, it has long been the elite provider of live music and entertainment throughout Southern California. You’ll find them on many industry Preferred Vendor Lists, including Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and Marina Del Rey, The St. Regis Monarch Beach, and the Segerstrom Center for The Performing Arts, Costa Mesa. Executive Talent Manager Mike Steffens has been with the company since 1991, and is still as excited about it today as he was when he joined. Mike has many years of experience as a producer for shows at major theme parks like Disneyland, and has even taken productions on tour internationally.
Mike is so personable that even the most nervous clients will feel comfortable discussing their event requirements. He’s also a stickler for details and organization, and spends a lot of time with the client with regards to planning: music requests, time line and sequence of events, etc. “We like to give our clients a picture of how things will actually unfold,” explains Mike. “Our discussion helps them to crystallize how they see it all coming together. Then we can bring their vision into being.”
The entertainers Essence Entertainment represents are consummate professionals, able to control the flow of the event and address any spontaneous moments. “Most of our acts have been referred to us from industry professionals,” Mike explains, “and have proven themselves to not only be talented, but also dependable and flexible.” The Essence Entertainment roster includes live Bands of every style, DJs, Classical and Jazz Ensembles, and Theme & Novelty entertainment of every shape and size, Celebrity Artists, and full Event Production. “Quite simply, we have chosen to represent the best in both talent and personality.”
“The standards we have here are really the highest,” says Mike. “Providing the best customer service and entertainment – really taking a personal interest from beginning to end – is what we’re all about.”
