  • About the event

    The Event

    The "Heart & Soul" 70s Classic Soul Experience is a live concert performance, targeting African American, and Hispanic adults 35+, in major metropolitan markets, and in households earning $55,000 or more annually.

    Location

    The first event is scheduled for September 15, 2018 in the world famous and glamorous Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom. Located at 311 West 34th street, directly across from Madison Square Garden and NYC Port Authority Bus Terminal, and one of New York City’s busiest public transportation hubs, it is ideally accessible from all five boroughs of New York, and beyond; including Long Island and New Jersey.

    The Manhattan Center is also a venue well associated with Heart & Soul Concerts because of the many great events they have presented there.  Another key factor is this venue’s 3,700 people legal capacity, which makes it available for us to provide different live performance configuration; including reserved theater-style seated concerts, formal galas with tables.

    Our Heart & Soul 70s Classic Soul experience offers a combination of two configuration with table and chairs and an open floor for dancing on the main level.  There will be additional theater-style seating in the second mezzanine.  Food and drink will be available to our patrons.

    Sponsor Branding

    We will utilize multiple advertising streams to promote the event and highlight our corporate sponsors.  These streams include major radio advertising with top Radio personalities hosting the event, Social Media ad campaigns via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and lastly a local street team to do hand-to-hand flier distribution throughout the five boroughs of New York.

    We offer corporate branding on our website, with direct links to the sponsor pages.

    Entertainment

    We will have professionally produced live stage performances featuring platinum and gold selling Artists and groups from the 70s; including, but not limited to, Temptations, Whispers, Gladys Knight, Stylistics, Chilites, and Blue Magic, just to name a few.

    Why should you sponsor

    The Psychology of Music: Why Music Plays a Big Role in What You Buy

    According to blog.motivemetrics.com Research suggests there seems to be three qualities of music that can influence buying behavior in a retail environment: tempo, volume, and genre.  We know that Classic Soul music encompasses all of those elements and consumers will connect to products that remind them of those feelings.   For this reason, strategically, we feel that it is a good business decision to connect your product or service to our Heart & Soul 70s Classic soul concert.
