Boom Goes Out: Wine Stage for One Yellow Rabbit

With prop planes positioned overhead and classic cars gleaming in every direction, hundreds of thirsty fundraisers gathered last evening for One Yellow Rabbit’s fabulous Wine Stage event at Heritage Park. This year, One Yellow Rabbit and its world-famous High Performance Rodeo celebrated 30 years. After an extraordinary anniversary festival earlier this winter, Wine Stage felt like a proper nightcap toast.   Wine Stage tonight to celebrate @hprodeo! #yyc #yycevents A photo posted by Boom Goes The Drum (@boomgoesthedrum) on Mar 19, 2016 at 8:54pm PDT Musician Kenna Burima getting a little hair loving from Rebecca #swizzsalonspa #swizzlove #oyr #hprodeo #winestage A photo posted by timmytulip (@timmytulip) on Mar 19, 2016 at 9:05pm PDT Tonight’s #winestage lineup.

Each ticket earned you a wine tasting. There was an incredible turnout from the wine and culinary community in Calgary (and Banff!) from Ox & Angela and River Cafe to Bin 905 and Big Rock Brewery (which had – wait for it – a champagne beer cask!).   Sea salt & Belgium chocolate brownie for tonight’s #winestage @heritageparkyyc #brassEATS #brasseriekensington #yyc #yycliving #oneyellowrabbit A photo posted by Brasserie Kensington (@the_brasskens) on Mar 19, 2016 at 6:09pm PDT Pork rillette & chanterelle emulsion for #winestage @the_brasskens @winebarkensi @containerbaryyc A photo posted by Cam Dobranski (@chefcamd)...

Event in Review: La Nuit Sauvage

Circus curioso and vintage steampunk came together this past weekend for La Nuit Sauvage- literally, “A Wild Night”. The historic Theatre Junction Grand welcomed Calgarian’s into an evening filled with “…surreal scenes, after-hours circus souls, secret rooms, a taste of tawdry midway amusement, DJs, silent auction and culinary inventions by Workshop Kitchen + Culture.”     Arguably one of Calgary’s most enticing and beloved architectural gems, the Theatre was on fine display this past Saturday as guests wandered through three floors of warmly lit exposed brick, champagne-bottle-chandeliers, and heavy velvet cordoning. Over one hundred years old, the building was as much a treat to interact with for guests as were the many circus performers and art installations. Throughout the event guests dressed in various degrees of victorian-era and industrial revolution inspired garb, as steampunk culture has come to be known for. Attendees alternated between exploring the building and it’s various pop-up presentations, and being covertly ushered in small groups into private parties and performances, featuring burlesque dancers and absinth tastings, just to name a few. A ‘vintage room’ photo booth was also wildly popular, as guests could not only interact with a fun set and various props, but could instantly find their pictures live on the photo booth’s Instagram account. Thank to you Fox Photo Society for their gorgeous Vanity Fair portrait-inspired design!           This event was absolute delight to partner on, and Boom greatly enjoyed assisting Theatre Junction Grand in displaying the creativity and vibrancy that the venue and its collaborators have become known for.

Boom Goes Out: Black and White Ball 2016

Decidedly Jazz Dancework‘s hosted The Black and White Ball, this past weekend, and monochrome never looked so good. The newly annual event took place once again in the luxurious Fairmont Palliser in downtown  Calgary, where guests enjoyed an evening of high flying heels and shimmying shoulders set beneath the Palliser’s glittering chandeliers.     Spectacular pop-up performances by core groups of some of the company’s most talented dancers delighted attendees as they wandered throughout the Palliser’s various ballrooms. As fans of tasteful juxtaposition in events, we particularly loved the ironic use of neon costuming for the dancers, which popped with delicious vibrancy against the sleek black and white dress of most of the guests. A general 20’s theme bedecked most of the attendees, which- thanks to DJD’s flapper-inspired promotions- has fast become a sort of assumed dress code for attendees; fluttering peacock feathers and softly shining strings of pearls were in generous supply.     Calgary can count itself lucky to be DJD’s home, and Boom in particular appreciates the beauty of the company’s creativity and artistry. To support DJD, click...

Boom Goes Out: Night with the Stars

If there’s anything we love more than theatre it’s celebrating theatre, so while half of the Boom team stayed in to watch (and savour, screen-cap, and sigh over) The Oscars, the other half of our team was thrilled to attend Theatre Calgary‘s annual fundraiser and Academy Awards party, Night with the Stars.   This year’s event featured a playful and on-point Star Wars theme, complete with glittering decor reminiscent of far-off galaxies, and jaunty storm troopers greeting guests on a red carpet. Over 500 glamorously outfitted Calgarians gathered to enjoy the company of other cinematic addicts, all while the Oscars were broadcasted live for the attendees viewing pleasure. Highlights of the evening included (but were certainly not limited to): ‘paparazzi’ on the red carpet, complete with flashing bulbs and shouts of, “Who are you wearing?”; a wildly popular photo booth, and (our personal favourite) a Smashbox touch-up station manned by professional make up artists.   The evening was an artistic and fundraising success, with the impressive live and silent auctions raising over $126,00.00 in support of Theatre Calgary. Boom was pleased to attend this event, and looks forward to doing so in the upcoming years. To see how you can support Theatre Calgary, click Here....

Red Carpet to YYC: Oscar Fashion for Local Events

It’s well known that red carpet events, like the Oscars, serve as inspiration for the succeeding year’s runway trends, and particularly event-fashion – especially weddings! This is just one of many reasons the Boom team have always been avid students of the Academy’s style; the pieces that make their way up and down that much-lauded scarlet rug will undoubtedly shape the look and feel of what people want to wear to events, and- by proxy- the feel and fashion of the events themselves. To give you a local angle, we spent an afternoon with Boom friend and muse, Lauren Barrie of The Nobles Model Management, trying on some Oscar-worthy attire at Holt Renfrew to see what sort of looks will translate well from the red carpet to YYC events!        ...

Boom and Friends: Oscars Red Carpet Predictions 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, people! It’s Oscar season, a precious moment when the Boom team comes together with our friends to celebrate cinema and red carpets on one fabulous evening. This year, we’ll be spread across the city at star-studded viewing parties (Lori will be checking out Theatre Calgary’s Night with the Stars and CIFF is also throwing a cool shindig) and home-grown gatherings, but we’ll all be watching. While everyone makes their picks for who will take home little gold men, we’ve gathered some guesses on who will win the red carpet. Thanks to all these fashionable folks for participating! Stay tuned to our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook on Oscar Sunday (this Sunday!) to follow along with us, and following the awards to see our top picks for best dressed. Happy Academy-ing you to all. See you Sunday!     My prediction for best dressed at this year’s Oscar’s number one is Cate Blanchett– love her, love her elegance and grace. She has a je ne sais quoi that no one can compete with. Her nomination for best actress for her role in Carol has been pivotal to her career and I guess the only question is… will she wear an Armani Gown or tailor pant suit. Cate has a long standing relationship with the Armani fashion house as she has been the $10 million dollar face of his the fragrance “Si”. I adore her classic beauty and she never disappoints on the red carpet. Second runner up to her will of course be Rooney Mara, Cate’s best supporting actress in Carol with something unexpected and darkly romantic. The unexpected new...

5 Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas in Calgary

It happens to all of us at one point in our lives. You wake up one mid-February morning and, as you begin drinking that first cup of coffee, you find yourself staring in horror at last night’s flyer for a Valentine’s special courtesy of your local florist. Next thing you know you’re frantically searching for a restaurant with an open table and praying something other than Transformers is playing at the theatre. Don’t worry. We’ve all been there and, single or taken, we’ve taken the guesswork out of surviving (and maybe even enjoying) Valentine’s Day this year!   1.Book that Last-Minute Reservation A great dinner is a tried and true way to celebrate the day of love; it takes out the hassle of cooking and gives you an excuse to dress up. If you’re worried about finding a reservation this late in the game, don’t be- Open Table has a comprehensive list of all Calgary restaurants that still have space! Click Here for bookings.     2. Hit the slopes! A great date idea or a fun and unique way to meet another single, Mount Norquay is hosting a fantastic Lifts of Love event, featuring some time on the hills and an Après Ski Mixer with a DJ! Click Here for details!   3. Find Amore at the Famer’s Market There’s nothing quite like spending a Sunday afternoon wandering the Calgary Farmer’s Market, eyeing the brightly coloured produce, inhaling the scent of fresh baked bread… There’s something inherently romantic about the whole thing. Add a dueling piano performance, a photo booth, and the chance to make a fruit-flower valentine (we don’t know, but we’re...

Boom Goes Out: Schmancy 2016

This past weekend the Glenbow Museum celebrated their 50th anniversary and ushered in another year of local and international art and history with their annual event, Schmancy. As the museum’s largest fundraiser, Schmancy easily pulls in over 800 guests enticed by the opportunity to witness the evening’s evocative programming and catering, and who want to participate in Calgary’s art-world, either through the much-anticipated ART PARK silent auction, or by browsing the Glenbow’s travelling and permanent exhibitions- the largest art collection in Western Canada. Night of the event, VIP Dinner guests were treated to a highly catered, multi-course meal that left us overwhelmingly impressed. From the gracious wait staff who seemed to anticipate your needs before you realized them yourself, to the inspired concoctions that graced our plates, our hats are tipped to Hotel Art‘s chef, Jan Hansen, who also ensured that general guests enjoyed a range of canapés that didn’t disappoint. Boom was delighted to spend some of the evening with Calgary couture designer and current Glenbow Artist-in-residence, Paul Hardy, whose Kaleidoscopic Animalia exhibit is on display at the museum. Well known for the way his clothing beautifully uses- and is inspired by- the natural world, Hardy’s exhibit is an unsurprisingly thoughtful examination of the relationship between humanity and animals.  Besides lining the walls and stages of the Glenbow, many of Hardy’s pieces were also seen bedecking Schmancy’s more discerning attendees. Schmancy encourages attendees to “. . . be as fancy as you want,” and Calgarians embraced this invitation with open arms. Canadian fashion icon and previous host of Fashion Television, Jeanne Beker, flitted through the well-heeled crowd, spotting and interviewing guests...

Boom Goes Out: Bill Brooks Prostate Cancer Benefit

Last Friday the Bill Brooks Prostate Cancer Benefit enjoyed its 18th annual fundraiser, with the support of over 600 Calgarians who came decked out in various states of tin and ruby shoes, in accordance with the “Billy of Oz” theme. While the largest one-night prostate cancer fundraiser in Canada, this evening has earned a reputation for being heavy on theme, and light on long-winded speeches. With Safeway as the returning presenting sponsor, and a volunteer committee that boasts David Cross on decor, Lynn Garrison Thomas on auction, and Larry Classen as the Honorary Chair, we weren’t surprised by the caliber of the event, and the fantastic transformation of Hotel Arts. More than $7.7 million has been raised over the last 18 years of this impressive events lifespan. This is in part due to the stunning auction items seen each year. This go-round guests were teased with dreams of a drool-worthy 2016 Camaro, a sleek 2016 Harley Davidson and two return tickets to anywhere WestJet flies. In addition, our friends at Givergy were in attendance with their silent auction auction software, which helped make the silent auction fun and competitive. Boom was honoured to be in attendance and to support this worthy, local-based event. For more information or to further support the fight against prostrate cancer, click...

Holiday Fashion for the Gents at Ed Williams Menswear

As event producers, we hear this a lot: “But I have nothing to wear!” The holidays don’t make it any easier. For many people, the holidays mean condensing a year’s worth of cocktail parties into three weeks. Gentlemen, we feel your pain. Between office parties and family dinners, your wardrobe is currently being put to the test, and above that you’re expected to be ‘festive’. We’re here to help! Or, rather, the friendly and fashionable folk at Ed Williams Menswear in Crowfoot are. Boom President Derek Macdonald acted as our model. We started with the Calgary dude basics – favourite black boots, dark wash jeans, and a white t-shirt. The challenge: find three looks to take us from Christmas dinner to office party to New Year’s Eve party-town. Our guide: Lowell Williams (Ed’s son), a sharply dressed old soul who knows SO MUCH about menswear. To start: Lowell has these tips for menswear:   In most cases the quickest way to date how old a guys clothes are is based on the fit.  Long gone are the boxy “Sienfieldian” shirts and the baggy straight leg dress pants, for the last few years a tailored closer fit has become the standard in men’s wear.  This doesn’t mean that your clothes should look painted on at the sacrifice of one’s comfort.  They should just look like they fit you as if they are made for you, sometimes that means just shopping somewhere with a good tailor who can alter garments to your specifications… Cough cough. In my experience fashion isn’t necessarily atop every man’s list of priorities or interests, as a...

BOOM Goes Out: BoostR Stage

Every few months Alberta’s social entrepreneurs come together to pitch the best of their ideas to a panel of discerning judges, in the hopes of winning $1,000.00. It’s called BoostR Stage, and on Dec. 2 it was hosted by the Theatre Grand, and featured local non-profits and social companies. What sets BoostR apart from other live-pitch-events is the degree of audience participation. In addition to food and drink, every guest’s ticket gives them $20 to ‘boost’ their favourite business. Interactive, social, and locally supported, BoostR is a great opportunity to invest in those who are changing lives and our society for the better, through the core of their business operations. “Through day-to-day business operations, they inevitably create positive social impact locally or globally – the social and financial outcomes of their organization are tied together.” From a production perspective, we can’t help but love an experience like BoostR. It brings together so many of the elements we look for in an event: entrepreneurship, community-centered, and interactivity. The face that it’s all hosted under the theatrical and historic Theatre Grande roof is just the icing on a production cake.           On Dec. 2, after an inspiring evening of passionate pitches, Mindful Mental Training took home the grand prize, which they will use to further their work on reducing the financial and personal cost of stigma, stress and depression in the workplace.   Want to pitch? Want to boost? Excited? Consider yourself invited. BoostR wants you– the influencer, innovator, community builder, entrepreneur, philanthropist – to join them in celebrating Alberta’s social entrepreneurs. Follow their Facebook page for...

LOOK2015: A Premier Fundraiser for Contemporary Calgary

On Saturday, Nov. 7,  Contemporary Calgary welcomed 700+ guests into the pink-washed halls of the Centennial Planetarium for their second annual fundraiser, LOOK2015. Contemporary Calgary is seeking to establish Calgary first significant public destination for modern and contemporary art. In their new home, the Centennial Planetarium, they will contribute to Calgary becoming a global city of choice by engaging the public in the art of our times. LOOK2015 is their premier fundraising event, which elegantly and proactively exposes Calgarians to a wide range of modern art and artists, and creates an experience that mimics the on-the-pulse nature of the artistic work it displays. The event captured the attention of Canadian Art, the Calgary Herald, CBC’s Eyeopener and Global News. Boom Goes The Drum was honoured to be part of this spectacular event. Photo credit: Kelly Hofer. As guests strode across the pink carpet and into the planetarium, they were met with a visual smorgasbord. The building, which had sat vacant for years, had been transformed from its cement walls and 90’s colour-theme to a modern, L.A.-chic art party, with incandescent lighting and architectural up-lighting making the entire structure pop with vibrancy. Well-heeled attendees sipped hosted wine and nibbled on palate-pleasing canapés, a la Hotel Arts, while perusing the collection of displayed silent auction art pieces, bidding against one another playfully (and sometimes not-so playfully) from their phones and the provided tablets. As guests moved throughout the space, stunning interactive installations by local artists met the crowds with delicious surprise; Tia Halliday’s “Under the skin of a painting” inspired installations featuring dancers stuck in a web of ever-shifting elastics, and caught beneath ‘canvases’,...

Event in Review: LOOK2014

Contemporary Calgary began as a collaboration of visual arts partners, including the Institute of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Art Gallery of Calgary, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Their mission is to build a global city of choice by engaging Calgary in the art of our times. In 2014 Contemporary Calgary won a bid to move into the very sought after Centennial Planetarium (formerly the Calgary Space and Science Centre), with future plans to open the Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art. With fundraising as their main objective, we began planning for the first inaugural fundraising gala named LOOK2014. On the evening of November 1, 2014, over 600 guests first impression was a long, pink carpet leading from the parking lot to the temporarily branded outdoor loading dock, where a team of greeters awaited, pink umbrellas in hand to ward off the falling snow. Brightly lit with Gobo patterns, incandescent lighting, and architectural up-lighting, this unexpected vibrancy in a forgotten loading dock on the train line, lead guests to one of two entrances. The VIP entrance was an ascending staircase to the top floor where guests were greeted by a line of black clad, turtle-neck wearing event hosts, ready to check them in on a custom designed iPad software system. From there VIP guests emerged into the large, open top floor of the Planetarium to an exclusive cocktail party, with artfully crafted canapés and flowing champagne. In the center of the room an oversized balloon sculpture hovered, changing color as an indication of the progressing program. Emcee Dave Kelly welcomed the VIP attendees and introduced Dr....

Boom Goes Out: House of Nonie S/S 2016 Debut Presentation

Last Thursday, Oct. 22, Calgary’s fashion crowd sat eagerly within the white walls of Studio 122, waiting for another taste of emerging designer Nina Kharey’s bold, clean designs that are quickly making her brand, House of Nonie, a local (and national) favourite. This is not the first time the BOOM team has touted House of Nonie as one-to-watch; in our coverage of PARKSHOW2015 earlier this spring, we noted that House of Nonie’s display was almost obscured by a perma-crowd of enchanted shoppers gathered in front (of which BOOM was most certainly a part). No that we’re surprised- having been mentored by Barbara Atkin of Holt Renfrew, Nina seems to have a firm grasp on what it takes to stand out amidst the clamor or young artists vying for attention, and her collection speak for itself. Simplistic shapes with bold cuts, minimal and architectural; Nina’s peices, much like the designer herself, seem to evoke a sophisticated yet unpretentious aura. The show itself was an elegant reflection of this aesthetic, taking place in Studio 122’s blank-canvas warehouse space in the SE. To shop House of Nonie’s collections and see what the designer is up to, check out her website:...

Boom Goes Out: Sneak Peek of ChefBar’s The Slaughter House

You’re only as good as the food you eat and the company you keep, and if last night was any indication, then we are divine. Under warm lights and the watchful, lychee eyes of a watermelon-skull-turned-punch-bowl, the BOOM team met up with PR mogul Alex Kingcott, stylist Leah Van Loon, and the curator of the evening, blogger, stylist, entrepreneur, and man-about-town, Vincent Law. The purpose of the evening? To taste ChefBar’s Halloween menu, as prepared by their head chef, Shawn Desauliers, for the restaurant’s transformation on Halloween night into The Slaughter House.  As event designers (and theme addicts) we were delighted by the demonic dishes and creepy concoctions crafted by Chef Desauliers and his staff. We enjoyed “brain fluid” cocktails (refreshing notes of watermelon, lime, and a kick of tequila), lemon quinoa salad (in tiny, jack-o-lantern style oranges) and drool-worthy sriracha pork belly (under a “spider web” of black garlic). After dinner, and a mountain of gourmet, browned-to-your-taste s’mores (nick named the ‘”s’mores-pocalypse” by Vincent), Chef Desauliers took us downstairs for a tour of the Gerry Thomas Gallery, catered exclusively by ChefBar. Clean lines, simple aesthetic, and a built-in bar make this a welcome addition to Calgary’s list of modern event spaces.   Deciding to retire from his position as the executive chef at the Fairmont, Chef Shawn Desauliers decided to open a restaurant in Calgary’s bustling centre that would reflect the type of cooking he enjoyed making at home; simple dishes, made with quality ingredients, all put together with the chef’s unique style. While the food and hand-crafted cocktails are obviously a focus for ChefBar, the restaurant also...

Boom Goes Out: Kaleidoscopic Anamalia by Paul Hardy for the Glenbow Museum

On Thursday, October 15, an intimate gathering of masked creatures congregated at the Glenbow Museum to witness the reveal of Paul Hardy‘s exhibit: Kaleidescopic Anamalia, and to celebrate his curatorial debut. Masks depicting animals from all corners of the globe were delivered to attendees in advance, and they certainly rose to the challenge. Truly, it a mascarade to remember. The evening also featured a stunning runway show and auction. Paul Hardy is the Glenbow Museum’s Artist in Residence. Glenbow’s In Residence program invites diverse artists from a variety of disciplines to interact with the museum’s exhibitions and collections and then create a new work based on their discoveries. Past In Residence artists have included Kris Demeanor, Shane Koyczan, Kent Monkman and Corb Lund. READ: Paul Hardy tackles the Museum Experience, Calgary Herald  The exhibit is a true victory – it includes original designs creating specifically for the exhibition clearly demonstrating Paul Hardy’s signature point of view as well as artifacts and artworks from Glenbow’s vaults that have rarely been exhibited. His inspiration comes from our relationship with animals – across time, language, and culture. “Kaleidoscopic Animalia is an exhibition that taps into current interests in fashion, design and visual culture while exploring big ideas about human creativity, cultural values and the universal interest in animals as art, fashion and culture.” Learn more about the exhibit and its upcoming events via Glenbow Museum. The exhibit will be open until May 22, 2016.     #paulhardy at @glenbowmuseum   The big bad wolf… #paulhardy #fashionshow #fashion #style #design #masquerade A photo posted by Shaun Ford & Co (@shaunfordandco) on Oct 15, 2015 at...

LOOK2015: Holt Renfrew Private Shopping Night for Contemporary Calgary

On November 7, 2015 Contemporary Calgary will host hundreds of cultural revolutionaries in the Centennial Planetarium for its premiere fundraiser, LOOK2015, presented by Holt Renfrew, Enbridge, City of Calgary and the Calgary Herald. The goal: raise $1M – enough to set up a ‘Temporary Contemporary’ by the fall of 2016 and begin welcoming people to Calgary’s first significant destination for modern and contemporary art. Generous private donors have stepped up to match donations, dollar for dollar, up to $500,000. All donations will go twice as far! Big, bold, and magnificant. We’re counting down the days. To kickstart that fundrsaising effort, two things happened this week. 1. Pre-bidding began online for LOOK2015’s centrepiece event: the live & silent art auction – one of the biggest to take place nationwide. Take a LOOK. 2. LOOK2015 sponsor Holt Renfrew hosted a Private Shopping Night on October 7 and invited all their friends to come along for the party. Boom was thrilled to produce this event, which attracted hundreds of shoppers to shop the night away in style, and all for a great cause: 10% of all sales were donated to Contemporary Calgary’s $1M goal (and, of course, matched by CC’s donors). Enjoy photos of the event below, and catch that action yourself at LOOK2015 on November 7. TICKETS & INFO.      ...
