Chicago Corporate Event Entertainment Services

When you hire Chicago jazz singer and jazz band leader Elaine Dame to provide entertainment for your corporate event, fundraiser, or gala, you’ll find that her team of professional Chicago jazz musicians have your goals and needs in mind when entertaining you and your guests.

What past clients have said:

“I booked Elaine Dame and her quartet for a high-profile corporate client event and am so glad I did. A perfect fit from beginning to end. She was exactly what the client was expecting. Her music always lights up the venue yet Elaine and the wonderfully talented musicians she works with understand that with many corporate functions the client wants to be subtly entertained while they do business and not have to compete with the music on stage. She is easy to work with, always professional, and really listens to the clients’ needs from music style to the purpose of the evening whether it’s a wedding or a networking event. I will continue to highly recommend her to a variety of clients.”
~ Shannon Broderick, Director of Operations, Black Orchid Supper Club

“From the first moment I met Elaine, I found her to be warm, vivacious, and incredibly talented. She was very flexible when we had some last-minute changes and was nothing but enthusiastic every step of the way. We’ll definitely bring Elaine back for future events!”
~ Sherry Kaye, Marketing Director, Hafele Corporation of America

“Having heard Elaine Dame perform at a few other events, I knew that when the opportunity arose, I’d love to have her at mine. Elaine added just the right touch of elegant sophistication that helped transform our event from a night out into a ‘night to remember.’ And, how did she know to sing my favorite standard, ‘The Nearness of You,’ just at the right moment? She’s a magical performer!”
~ Anthony Hogan, Chicago Corporate Event Planner, HGH Creative
