Bring an innovative producer’s mentality to highly customized themed shows with national level talent.

Maggie Speaks is spearheaded by frontman and founder Dave Calzaretta, a CPA turned musician and entertainment professional. 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, like you, across the globe. After founding Maggie Speaks and the entertainment company Magnificent Events, Dave quickly established himself as one of the top event producers in the Chicagoland area.

“In the past, people have left our gala after a song or two, but Maggie Speaks kept everyone on the dance floor and not out the door. Best decision we made to improve the flow of our event and give value to our attendees.” — Cesilie Price (CEO; Boys and Girls Club of Lake County)

Whether you want an entirely custom show complete with props and fit-to-theme tunes, or collaborating with legendary musical artists like Steve Augeri (formerly of Journey), Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, and Randall Hall (formerly of Lynyrd Skynyrd) for a celebrity-centered cover experience, Dave and the team at Magnificent Events will create an exclusive approach for you, which is why they’re garnering attention from international event planners across the globe.

With so many moving parts, you want a band who is always willing to adapt. Maggie Speaks understands the need of corporate clients, like you, is easy to work with and is flexible in size and style – from intimate to a spectacle of a 15 piece musical ensemble of world class musicians and Celebrity Performers all coming together to create an experience you’ll never forget. Your guests will be blown away by a full live band experience that gets everyone singing along and dancing on their feet. Yes, any audience. That includes the stodgiest boss, the most buttoned–down middle managers, and that guy from accounting who doesn’t say much.

Put the innovative passion and professionalism of Maggie Speaks to work for you. Contact or Call Maggie Speaks today, (815) 230-3770.

On behalf of the CMMA I would like to thank Maggie Speaks for a job well done! We had so many compliments on the band and their song choice. You catered to both the young and old and I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty!!!
