Play Ball 2

One of my favorite event types that we get to work with is fundraisers. Especially being born and raised in the Omaha area, it is so amazing to see the generosity of people giving to these awesome causes. We had the pleasure of working with Heartland Family Service for their annual fundraiser at the Mid America Center.



The theme this year was “Play Ball” and centered on the 1930-1940s baseball erPlay ball 5a. It’s always a thrill working with themed events and being able to coordinate the entertainment to emphasize the theme. For this specific event we wanted to have a “big band” sound but we made sure to stick within our client’s budged. We were able to put together a small quintet featuring a three piece horn section, keys, and drums. It worked perfectly for the theme and the audience loved it!


The band’s singer, Michael, lead the crowd in the the National Anthem at the beginning of the night and we all sang along to “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the 7th Inning Stretch. Throughout the night the ‘Charge’ call rang out through the speakers and it felt like you were actually at a ballgame!

The night was an incredible success, not just because of the music but because this incredible non-profit was able to raise over $70,000!!! Way to go Heartland Family Service and thank you for letting Omaha Musicians Live be apart of this amazing event!!
