Mini of Santa Monica Launch Party

Cars, Live Music, Event Design … all come together to create the perfect vibe for a beautiful Launch Party for Mini of Santa Monica.
Mini of Santa Monica and Simply Radiant Events had a double vision for two spaces in the dealership.  They wanted a Campfire singer-songwriter feeling in one area, and a speakeasy with a variety of music in the other.  Needless to say, The Replicas Music was up for the challenge! MINI Cooper of Santa Monica opened their doors to the community and invited them in for the evening to enjoy some lite bites, drinks, and of course s’mores outside by the campfire.

Our amazing guitarist played campfire songs for all to enjoy, while inside our variety quartet played a plethora of hits from the Sinatra era to Today!  Nailed it!

The Variety Quartet looking so darn dapper!  You can’t deny that great live music adds so much to the overall feeling of the event.

Whether you need all jazz or all rock n roll or all pop/top 40 … This quartet can morph into the exact theme to blend with your design and vision.

Why was Mini of Santa Monica having a launch party?  They opened a new dealership! We need to Gush a little bit about these cars – They are beyond hip and cool.  There’s such attention to every detail in every model.  And those leather interiors are like butter!  They also give you this throwback feeling of yesteryear, but with an updated prestige.

This event was open to the public.  Mini of Santa Monica plied the town with Champagne and amazing food. The staff and new owners of this gorgeous dealership were super awesome folks who love great music.

Our solo guitarist played everything from Radiohead to Sam Cook. Seriously, Craig (from New Orleans) has an incredible voice and never misses a note.  He had everyone singing along to some good old Americana as well.

We had some folks dancing to the variety band.  Check out this fun little video: 


We can’t thank Courtney from Simply Radiant Events enough for asking us to be the entertainment for the Mini of Santa Monica Launch. Her team is marvelous and Courtney is super easy to work with.  We look forward to many more good times together.
