NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In the liner notes of several early Grateful Dead albums, the Band posed the eternal questions: "Who are you? Where are you?"
Participants at Wall Street Dead aHead Networking Events™ are learning the answers to these questions while creating new, valuable relationships based on that very mantra. They believe that networking in an environment that allows like-minded business people to recognize, create and act upon new relationship opportunities, sets the stage that allows all the participants to find out exactly who others are and where they are at this moment of their careers.
The collective theme is music, best characterized as "jam-band" influenced. Wall Streeters and other financial types mix and harmonize as they blend their love of music with networking to develop rolodexes that enhance their day jobs.
Behind this successful series of events is money manager and Grateful Dead aficionado Deborah Solomon. She must be on to something because her next event on January 28th is already sold out and there is a substantial waiting list.
Ms. Solomon's inspiration for creating these ticket-coveted events was her enthusiasm to share her love of Dead concerts with her Wall Street counterparts during high-level meetings. Ms. Solomon explains: "Admitting I loved the Grateful Dead, as well as other jam bands, could have been a high-risk career move — instead, this disclosure became a conversation starter that has helped me form many of my very long-term business relationships with people I can truly count as friends."
This third sold-out Wall Street Dead aHead Event is set for Tuesday, January 28th, 2014 from 6-9:30 pm at Suite 36, located at 16 West 36th Street, NYC.
The event will feature a concert by The Deadbeats, open-bar beer and wine with specialty cocktails, appetizers and sponsor bags — and for ultimate networking, a coveted attendance roster with contact information that also lists each attendee's favorite Grateful Dead song.
For this upcoming event, the affiliated charity is HeadCount — a non-partisan organization dedicated to registering voters and promoting participation in democracy, all through the power of music. With a board of directors that includes Bob Weir and a network of 200 artists and 10,000 volunteers, HeadCount works every day to give the music community a greater voice in this country and make the world a better place.
The specialty cocktails made with 1800 Tequila, Three Olives Vodka and Tin Cup, Colorado Whiskey will be provided by Proximo Spirits.
