Over the past two weeks, we’ve been busy assisting our clients with more virtual events, as well as helping them form a plan A, B, C and D for fall!

 

Here are some highlights from the virtual events:

Last Friday we helped run a virtual concert from Twitch, with 3OH!3 and 7220 Entertainment. The event included an opening DJ set by Nat of 3OH!3, headliner set, campus-branded transitions, and a private meet and greet for university students and staff. Here’s what Nat from 3OH!3 had to say about the event:

“In 2020, living in quarantine has brought new challenges to putting on live concerts and allowing people to come together to feel unified. How To Concerts and 7220 Entertainment navigated this beautifully for a recent virtual show we had the good fortune to perform for the students of the University of Wyoming, providing a smooth, fun and collective platform for everyone watching to come together!”
– Nathaniel Motte, 3OH!3

 

Alexis Michelle from RuPaul’s Drag and “Dragnificent” helped us with several virtual bingo events and had a BLAST. We provide an accessible bingo caller window and a full advance and sound check to ensure your event happens without a hiccup. Here’s what two schools had to say about their virtual drag bingo event…

“Our NDSU students loved playing bingo with Alexis and enjoyed how she shared stories/answered their questions throughout the evening. A super fun event for all.”
~Jen Kacere, NDSU Residence Life

“How To Concerts helped us pivot to implementing a virtual program that helped our activities board entertain and engage our students, but also celebrate our LGBTQ+ community with drag bingo. The whole process from beginning to end was seamless, and Jolene and Jake were there with us every step of the way and ensured our event went off without a hitch!”
-Callie Clark, Director of Engagement at Clarke University

A virtual Q&A w/ Scott Rogowsky from HG Trivia revealed incredible stories about Scott meeting John Oliver after years of pursuit, uncovered great stories about Scott’s college days, and provided excellent insight into what a day in the life of a comedian and show host looks like.

Our cooking classes with Chef Jyll Everman have been wonderful, and she has two more menus available for those that want to repeat the class with a new menu. One of the most well-attended classes we worked on included a contest for presentation. It was a great way to get students excited. We were able to see students cooking with their families, laughing together and learning new tricks in the kitchen.

“Jyll’s cooking class was so much fun! Her energy, good humor and suggestions were fantastic and really added to the event experience! The best part was seeing some students cooking along with one of their parents!”
-Lisa Ramsey, Associate Director of Student Engagement at John Carroll University
