Stafford Arima, the COMPANY MEN
THE COMPANY MEN are honored to announce that Laurence Olivier Award nominee Stafford Arima has joined the team as Creative Consultant. Fresh from directing the triumphant, star-studded Ragtime concert at Lincoln Center, Arima brings his creative vision to America's First Mashup Group.
Just over one year ago, Daniel Tatar, Shawn Perucca, Stuart Ambrose and Brian Purcell put aside their 9-to-5 day jobs to create the COMPANY MEN, a four-man vocal group with live band that takes classic music from the past six decades and "mashes" it with today's hits. From their recurring residency at Hollywood's iconic Key Club last year, to their recent performance at the 10th Annual Red Dress Awards at Jazz at Lincoln Center, audiences around the world have enthusiastically responded. With more venues recently announced, including several casinos later this spring and summer, the partnership with Arima allows the show to continue growing to a new level.
On the announcement, Arima added, "I am thrilled to begin this exciting new adventure with tsuch a talented group of men. the COMPANY MEN's passion for music and performance is endlessly infectious. To be in their company is going to be a wonderfully fun and inspiring adventure."
Other members of the creative team include Jared Sayeg (lighting design), Justin Avery (music supervision) and Leah Seminario (choreography). 4 Times Entertainment, LLC, is producing. the COMPANY MEN and Arima plan to start working together in early March in Los Angeles.
the COMPANY MEN bring together a unique blend of talent, personality and showmanship that harkens back to an earlier era, while pushing the boundaries of today's current sound. This "Modern Day Rat Pack" has shared the stage with Natalie Cole, Colbie Caillat, Chaka Khan, Chris Daughtry and Jesse Campbell (The Voice), among others. They have performed for music legends Quincy Jones and Berry Gordy, and have been featured nationwide in numerous television, radio, magazine, and online spots.
