Night of Elegance
Get ready to move, mix, and mingle as the evening rolls in on April 29th, 2018. Our cash bar will open at 6:30pm at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. Make sure to show your tickets at the door, and get ready to party! After a long day of learning this is your chance to chat with friends and fellow creatives. So grab a drink, network, catch up, relax and unwind before the concert starts.
Once 7:30 rolls around it’s time to start rocking and rolling to the most dynamite show and dance band in town: Kustom Made Band. This electrifying group plays a variety of music from 60’s classics by Chuck Berry to 70s ABBA Dance hits. Music through the decades: 80’s Rock from AC/DC to Chaka Khan as well as 90’s throwbacks from Lauryn Hill to No Doubt. Ballads, Standards, Swing, Jazz, Reggae, Hip Hop and R&B. The Kustom Made Band has got every style of sound covered! These performers have played with the likes of the O Jays, Earth Wind & Fire, Tina Marie, and The Chairmen of the Board just to name a few. If you want to hear great music, watch a great show, and have a great time no matter what you groove to, then get ready to get down to the Kustom Made Band LIVE at the annual NES Night of Elegance!
Stick around after the show for the moment of truth! By 8:30pm Influance staff will be honoring the recipients of the NES 2018 Image Awards. Winners will receive a certificate documenting their achievements, and the chance to have their work published in Influance advertisements.
Creative types rejoice! We have creative hands on activities planned for the evening. This event is all about learning and entertainment! Paint production will be a chance to get educated outside of the classroom and most importantly have fun!
