2) Sassabrass Specialty Talent, where my own name is not prominent, geared for more transparent corporate events. Sometimes the twain shall meet, but Gabriel the Artist is usually presented as a talent option provided by Sassabrass, not as the driving force. Since we worked together last, I have created an even wider-reaching and diverse talent resource, including my Agent Friendly site SpecialtyTalent.com where talent can be viewed by you and your clients without fear of circumvention or price comparisons.
Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has been on the Vancouver scene for many years, and has fine tuned the art of entertaining with a band, and even as a solo act for restaurant, corporate and public audiences in intimate venues, as well as large halls, ie: The Hard Rock Casino, which was a solo gig.
He has a compelling, full sound when performing as a solo act on trumpet, flute, flugelhorn, and vocals, using backing tracks from his many award winning albums (JUNO, Album of the Year, Instrumentalist of the Year, etc), and also designs custom playlists for Gala Dinners, and Restaurants/Lounges such as Pinnacle On The Pier Lounge, Hotel Vancouver 'Roof', Fairview Pub, Sylvia Hotel, Monk McQueens, Dockside Brewing, and still ongoing at Ten Ten Tapas.
He will create a foreground performance or background ambience that suits your Theme or Demographic. Musical styles can even include classical themes, which can morph through styles as the evening progresses....
