Hello everyone! Can you believe that July is almost gone? Summer is rapidly leaving us. A little rough with the storms, flooding, and power outages and of course the heat, but we are still blessed. Looking at the news there are other places in the country that had it much worse than we had it. So let us focus on the positive things.
Before I get started on what is coming up, I want to thank all of you who supported our “Oldies but Goodies Crab Feast Fundraiser”. Those of you who purchased tickets and gave donation helped made the crab feast a success. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. If you missed it and still want to support us to help give these little gifted children scholarships, you can do that by going to our website: www.rosapryormusic.com and pay by PayPal or you can send donations to Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Fund, Inc. 214 Conewood Road, Reisterstown, Md. 21136. I thank you in advance.
I recently interviewed Vincent and Phyllis Allen, entrepreneurs who are the founders of Vincent Street Entertainment, LLC. As President and CEO, Vincent directs and coordinates the company’s day-to-day operation with his wife as project manager. Vincent is a certified Producer with Brooklyn Community Access Television (BCAT) and is responsible for the production of two cable shows; he directs live broadcasts, films and recordings, for public entertainment or education.
Phyllis Allen, chief operating officer, plans and schedules programming and event coverage based on broadcast length, time availability, and other factors, such as community needs. She is also a certified Producer with Brooklyn Community Access Television (BCAT).
“My job for our company is to assist with the direct live broadcasts, films and recordings”, she explains. “I review performers’ information such as photos, resumes, voice tapes and videos in order to decide whom to audition for parts; read scripts and confer with producers”.
This husband and wife team names are already buzzing around town and it’s just a matter of time before this dynamic dual will be a household word.
