A Brief Overview of the Live Entertainment Guru, Clay Hutson

To the live guru entertainment, Clay Hutson, planning is essential for any business. Clay believes that despite his vast experience in the music industry, planning has contributed significantly to the success of his business. That’s why he gets to the venue of a show before any of his employees gets there. Doing so gives him enough time to go through his schedule, set a storage plan, and come up with a to-do list without any distractions.

Clay Hutson who is a renowned project and stage manager for celebrity concerts and tours, brings his ideas to life by first visualizing them. For instance, when he is hired, Clay first thinks about the set design, so he can understand what will work, and what won’t work. With the visualization, he then ensures that every piece of equipment fits his mental picture, before the event day. This means that Clay is usually involved in every step of the preparation, and that’s why his success is not a surprise. Instead of being the boss, he acts as a leader, setting the pace for his crew members through planning, and walking with them until the concert is over.

If he ever got the opportunity to go back in time, and advise the younger version of himself, he would tell them to always be honest not only with others but also themselves. He would also ensure he tells the younger Clay not to forget about the essence of family, and always to prioritize them. Clay Hutson believes that apart from planning, reviewing his work for mistakes is another habit that helps his business succeed. He says that’s important because, like his work, even a simple error can cause severe damage to the reputation of his company.

Currently, Clay Hutson’s company is doing incredibly well, and was recently hired by Kid Rock as stage manager. He is among the top project managers in the music arena, and as such, he has worked with big names in the industry including Lady Gaga, Pink, Guns N Roses, and many others. He believes that the secret ingredient to his business attracting new and more significant clients with each wake is attributed to his hard work. Besides, Clay never shies away from working extra hours, and pays attention even to minor details that make his services stand out among most musicians.

Clay Hutson encourages everyone out there to read, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, a book by Richard Carlson, as it has helped him take the stress out of his job by focusing on details that matter, and leaving out the small stuff.

ALEX PALL’S CHAINSMOKERS MUSIC EVOLUTION

Alex Pall is a band member of the duo The Chainsmokers. The group has had success in the recent years after releasing several songs that have been well received by the audience. They major mainly in producing electronic soundscapes that are then topped by a musical, mostly done by a third person.

 

However, the duo has been entering the mainstream by featuring their voices in their songs as opposed to what most other dance music DJs do. Closer, one of their singles is one of the songs that featured Halsey and Taggart (the other member of The Chainsmokers). The duo wants to establish themselves as an identity that has evolved over the years that they have been active.

Alex Pall started off as a DJ working in New York as a side job though it was a passion of his since he was young. Pall started pursuing the dance music genre after visiting an art gallery, where he realized that it was a part of him. He quit his job after he was introduced to Andrew, who was in college at the time, by Chainsmokers’s current manager. Andrew even moved from Maine to New York to pursue the dream. Pall was already in the group Chainsmokers when his partner left. It was then that Andrew saw the opportunity and took it and joined Pall.

 

Once they met, they immediately started working on their music. Since Andrew had experience in producing music, something he had done since he was in college, and Pall was good as a DJ; it was easier to make music and create the identity for themselves. The duo kept and keeps trying out new things that the fans could relate to. It’s something that has kept their fan base growing. This is because the two didn’t perceive the act as a job but rather something that they both enjoyed doing.

 

They always involve the songwriters in the process of making music so that they can grow while still making good music. Pall believes that with the always-changing music industry, The Chainsmokers will be able to get more people to listen to their music.
