One thing you must know about me is that I am a huge music lover.  Music can set the tone to almost anything that you are doing.  It can calm your heart, make you smile & brings back memories you never want to forget.  One of my favorite instruments is the saxophone.  I think it melts my heart just a bit.  My husband is thinking of taking up lessons.  LOL!!  In all reality having music at your wedding is a must and there are so many options to choose from.
We have some amazing talent here in Utah, right at our fingertips.  Aren’t we so lucky.  Today I want to feature Rob Bennion.  His first love is playing the sax but he also is a DJ’ &  plays in a band.  I wanted to highlight Rob today because of his amazing sax skills.  But that isn’t all he offers.  He is ultra talented.
Rob is a sax player first, but he doesn’t stop there, he composes & arranges music,  leads his own jazz band, is a DJ (Robot Dream music) & runs his own talent agency, Echo Talent Management.  Which he has been involved in many humanitarian projects because of his talent agency. I think it is fair to say that Rob has a passion & gift when it comes to music. One thing that is exciting & unique about Rob & his many his many talents is that he & his group can entertain the entire wedding from the ceremony, jazz crooner for dinner or cocktails & they can DJ for the ultimate wedding reception. He often plays the flute for the wedding ceremony, the sax for the wedding dinner & then DJ’s the reception.  How fun is that?

The picture above was taken by Melissa Hagen, Conn’s Manager while they performed for the 2013 Eagle-Condor Humanitarian Fundraiser which Rob chaired.

When Rob walked in to “pitch” his band to the board of directors at Eagle-Condor Humanitarian in in December 2012, he had no idea he would walk out of the meeting as Gala Chair and organizer for the entire event, less than 2 months away.  Together with the Eagle Condor team, Echo Talent scouted and secured the Rail events center, a hip and modern concert venue with a much larger capacity than past years’ galas.  Conn Curran and the Rob Bennion Band provided sound, Audio Visual, MC’d the event, promoted and marketed including another morning news show appearance, and coordinated weekly meetings leading to the event.  The end result:  Eagle Condor raised $25,000 after expenses, a $10,000 increase from the previous year.
