The Crescendo Group, formed just over four years ago by Richie Barton and Jamaal Solomon, aims to offer entertaining events for the young professional demographic in Grand Cayman.
The group hosts three events a year – Footprints, a beach event held each spring, Bliss, an all-inclusive event reminiscent of South Beach parties, and Traffik, a formal event held around Christmas time.
‘The concept of all-inclusive entertainment is fairly new to Cayman, and prior to our events they were virtually unheard of,’ said Mr. Barton. ‘We are pleased to say that our product has evolved significantly over the years and has become highly anticipated by many.’
Aiming to provide a platform for networking as well as entertainment, the latest event on The Crescendo Group’s calendar is Bliss, which will be held on Friday, 31 July at the Cracked Conch restaurant in West Bay.
‘Our goal with Bliss – as it has been with all our events – is to establish a product that offers somewhat of a hybrid between both extreme ends of the entertainment spectrum in Cayman,’ said Mr. Barton.
Unlimited fine wines and spirits will be served at the event along with a selection of canapés. All food and drink is included in the ticket price. Tickets need to be purchased by Saturday, 18 July, and names for the guest list should be provided at the time of purchase.
The event begins at 9pm and ends at 2am, and a bus has been secured for those who overindulge.
‘We will be available to shuttle patrons to their home in the event that they have consumed too much alcohol,’ said Mr. Barton. ‘Safety is paramount to The Crescendo Group and we would ask that patrons drink responsibly.’
Tickets to the event are $75 and may be purchased from fashion retailers such as Luxe Life and Arabus, Automotive Art or Mr. Barton or Mr. Solomon.
