Producer of the Nation’s Most Sought-After Party Band Launches Global Agency and Authors Book
After more than a decade producing the country’s most sought-after party band, Dennis Smith is launching a new management agency — Galaxy Party Management™ – offering his award-winning groups for top-notch events around the globe. Smith’s bands have played for the likes of Ted Turner’s 75 th birthday, Eli Manning’s wedding and Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump’s New Year’s Eve bashes. Comprising more than 120 musicians, who have toured with Celine Dion, Earth Wind & Fire and Lionel Richie, Galaxy Party Management carefully curates its shows to include a stage packed with costumed and choreographed performers who tackle an unprecedented non-stop, three-hour performance.
Smith has performed as a musician since his teens, but came to recognize that the recording business model was deteriorating. He saw an open market niche in the wedding, corporate event and private party circuit, but not just as a typical party band – one that would incorporate the best singers, dancers and musicians available. Based in Atlanta, he had access to the best major-touring artists and business talent. In 2002, Smith joined forces with entertainment agent Ed Duncan to create the first and award-winning band, Party on the Moon®, which led to the formation of the management agency, Galaxy Party Management.
“My goal was to create the best special events cover band in the world,” Smith said. “It was a new concept and one that many in the music industry said couldn’t be done. Today, Party on the Moon is the most sought-after band in the market, a market that it forged.”
The company continues to grow, with bands performing at President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Ball, the Kentucky Derby and the Indianapolis 500. Party on the Moon has been recognized by Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings and Vogue as one of the top wedding bands in the country and nominated by Entertainment Weekly as America’s No.1 corporate and private party band. Smith’s revolutionary business model is clearly sustainable and growing.
Smith’s story is highlighted in his debut book Rock ‘n’ Roll, Martial Arts & God. Smith discusses how his passion for music led to a successful business and how his involvement with faith and martial arts have also contributed. He leaves his readers feeling inspired as he shares that success is a journey and explains that everyone has the ability to pursue their dreams and passions regardless of life’s obstacles.
