  • In my 11+ years in the business of private event music (bandleader of Entourage via Arlen Music Productions) I have to say that Stephanie rises to the top ... I cannot say enough great things about her but will start with the fact that she is just so dang talented at what she does and her energy is phenomenal all the while. A true gem and I hope we get to work together a lot more in the future. :)
