Nico Adams and Christine Olivier shared the stage on Saturday, August 27th at the Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano for their self-titled album debuts. Not only was this brother and sister team pumping up the crowd, but they had SO much fun doing it. Their entire family put so much heart and soul into this intimate, genuine album release party. Guests smiled down the red carpet while they got photographed by professional photographers and interviewed by our CEO, Michelle Patterson. This event really made you feel important and appreciated. The lobby was packed with mingling fans of Christine and Nico while they munched on an array of delicious treats. Seriously, check out the homemade candy kabobs…unreal.
The crowd made their way into the Playhouse and danced to the most energetic DJ-set I’ve heard in a long time. DJ Orio was spinning everything from pop hits to 80′s rock. This was perfect for the variety of age groups that stood in the crowd. Michelle Patterson introduced Christine and Nico through the fog machine and bright lights as the fans screamed with excitement.
Throughout the night everyone was singing to all of their songs, especially their duet, “Stop Us!” Overall, this was a high-energy show filled with loving friends, family and media. Everyone left with, well, “A Box of Cool Shit,” including graphic Tees, CDs, snacks and more.
They will be returning to the Camino Real Playhouse on Friday, September 23rd.
Free beer, free food & good music…enough said!

You heard it first… Roger L. Clawson, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt, will be a very special guest on our EventComplete Radio Show on Thursday, August 4th at 2 PM PST.

I am personally excited to tune in to the show as a former Assistant Manager at Golden Spoon in Rancho Santa Margarita/Plano Trabuco from April 06- August 08. Working at Golden Spoon was one of the highlights of my teen years not only because I thoroughly enjoyed eating “Gspoon,” but because I made several long-time friends. I will definitely be sending out a mass text to my fellow co-workers letting them know that my company works directly with the head honcho of our old stomping grounds. In addition, the staff at EventComplete can not wait to launch Golden Spoon deals across the country on Groupon.com.
