This past Friday we celebrated our first three years in business with a wild and funky event. July 7th, 2017 became an event to honor all of the people and clients who have supported SEVEN along our journey. Building a strong house you must have a strong foundation. For the festivities of the night, we had a highly curated seven course culinary experience crafted by Chef John O'Brien. Naturally we paired that with delicious wines, beers, and a cocktail crafted by Scarecrow. Pretty sure that one got the party loose.
With any SEVEN party you must have something weird and exciting. We came up with a concept for "Living Sculptures" for the gallery space at Redux. They were based off of seven principles of design: Alignment, Hierarchy, Contrast, Color, Proximity, Balance, Repetition. While these sculptures were puppeteered around the gallery, they were accompanied by improvisational music by Allen Andrews. Seeing our guests reactions was well worth the work.
Later in the night we had a private screening of our new brand film by Person People. Their stellar work can be seen on our homepage and about page. This was followed by a wild improv solo between myself on the drums, my brother on guitar, and Allen Andrews mixing and mashing. The energy slowly blended into a Prince dance mix and turned into a full on dance party. To know the rest you just had to be there. Otherwise you can peek at these photos below by Daniel Hare.
We had a blast and feel the event was a total success. With that success, we have to give huge thanks to all the hardworking hands that made it possible : Redux, Kelly Finn, Mum & Dad, Jane Martin, My Brother, all the puppeteers, Chef John O'Brien, Rebecca O'Brien, Allen Andrews, Sage Graham, Louise & Mick, and Greg Colleton.
We have already started thinking about the next party to top this one. Stay tuned and thanks to everyone who made the time to come celebrate with us. Love you loads. Till the next time, friends!
