25 Sep Magnificent Events Founder David Calzaretta wins Entrepreneurial Excellence Award
Magnificent Events founder and entertainer David Calzaretta made no mistake when he left the corporate world to pursue a full-time career in the entertainment industry. After leaving his job to pursue music, Dave started his now award-winning cover band, Maggie Speaks. Performing 200 shows a year at different venues, Dave started being asked, “Where can I find a band like yours?” This lead to Dave and his passionate team offering to book the club for them, which ultimately lead to the creation of Magnificent Events. Dave quickly established himself as one of the top event producers in the Chicagoland area. With a keen eye for talent and a strong business background, Dave was able to build Magnificent Events into a company that helps clients produce high quality events, secure top quality celebrity and professional entertainment and production for everything from festivals to private parties.
For all his hard work and dedication, Dave Calzaretta will be honored Wednesday, September 25th, at the Danada House in Wheaton, IL for Innovation in Entrepreneurship at the 2019 Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards with the Daily Herald Business Ledger. Honorees demonstrate the best traits of entrepreneurship, including willingness to take risks, drive, perseverance and business creativity. Guided by his motto, “If it doesn’t exist, I will create it,” Dave and his expert team have taken the event world by storm and worked to bring unforgettable experiences to clients across the globe. Whether it be creating an entirely custom show complete with props and fit-to-theme tunes, or collaborating with legendary musical artists like Steve Augeri of Journey, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, and Eddie Money for a celebrity-centered cover experience, Dave and the team at Magnificent Events have trulycreated an exclusive approach to the event planning profession.
