Corporate Event and Award Ceremony from Mike Paul-Smith Music

In November 2021 the Capital Sounds Showband from Mike Paul-Smith Music were invited to perform at The Bonus Arena, Hull for a Wren Kitchens corporate event. 

The event was integrated with Wren’s Christmas 2021 marketing campaign which prominently featured the Sammy Davis, Jr. classic If They Could See Me Now

The event was also an award ceremony to congratulate staff who had achieved particular sales success.

Uplifting swing and pop music to get everyone in good spirits.

Awards Ceremony

Many of Mike Paul-Smith Music’s bands can provide award ceremony stings – short pieces of walk-up music to accompany award-winners onto stage, or to highlight key moments in your award ceremony. 

We work with you to create a bespoke programme of walk-on music.

One of our most memorable performances was for British Gymnastics, who were celebrating their 2016 Olympics success – and we can help your award-winners feel like Olympians as well!
