About Us

Mission Statement

We provide music entertainment for public and private events throughout Northeast Ohio.

We do this by first identifying our client's wishes for their event and then enthusiastically exceeding their expectations with our performance.

We work cooperatively with other vendors and venues with the goal of developing positive working relationships.

We recognize our role in the success of the event. We generate an environment of fun and excitement. We involve our guests in the evening and help to create positive memories of the event.

We respect the music we play and perform with passion and the highest level of musicianship possible.

We treat others with courtesy and respect and represent ourselves professionally at all times.

Our goal is to advance the standards of the music entertainment industry through customer service, musical performance and professional manner of conducting business.

Special Productions, Inc. has been providing northeast Ohio with the finest entertainment since 1978. We feature and manage three bands -- Special Blend, Special Request and Special Event. They set the industry standard by providing the highest quality and most reliable live music for the most discriminating buyer. When you ask other vendors and professionals within the industry, you will certainly hear of our fine reputation.

In addition, we represent the area's most responsible, reliable, trustworthy and professional entertainers, ranging from swinging dance bands to the most elegant classical ensembles, from jazz trios to the best local DJs, and every musical genre in-between. You can be assured that if we represent a performer, they must have proven themselves to measure up to our high standards. We give you our promise on that.

You see, unlike many entertainment agencies, we do not accept every act that approaches us! Each act is carefully screened to ensure that you, our valued customer, will be served by only the most professional musicians and performers possessing both the talent and customer service attitude that reflects the same such qualities as demonstrated by Special Productions, Inc. for thirty years. By doing so, we can personally guarantee the expertise of all the acts which we book.
