This is a part of our Creative Collaboration series, where we introduce you to our creative partners from all around the Bay Area. Today, we’re introducing you to Robbie Schlosser of the Magnolia Jazz Band.
The Magnolia Jazz band helps people celebrate. Nearly every day, they bring upbeat, elegant music to weddings and parties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Ranging from a strolling trio to a swinging six-man dance combo, they entertain their clients with the popular standards, jazz classics, and Latin favorites.
We asked Robbie to tell us a little bit about what inspired him to pursue a career in weddings and how he got started in the industry.
Since the 3rd grade, music has always been my main hobby. Back in 1975 I decided to make my living entertaining people with my music, and quickly found myself marketing to event planners, especially in the wedding industry.
Robbie also shared what his favorite part about being in weddings is.
At weddings people are celebrating one of the happiest days of their lives, and I LOVE how our music helps make their dreams come true.
What would Robbie be doing if he had a week off?
I’d do two things. First, I’d spend lots of time visiting friends nearby. And second, I’d stay home to read all the books and magazines I used to love but no longer have time to enjoy.
