Who We’re Not:
Trite. One size fits all. Disconnected. Boring. Unreliable. Pretentious. Ordinary. Humdrum. Unimaginative. Mediocre. Passionless. Stuffy. Run of the mill. Inaccessible. Cheesy. Irrelevant.
Not dedicated to creating the extraordinary. Right on time and in your style.
Who We Are:
A unique family of musicians dedicated to bringing our art, passion and talent to create one unforgettable moment after another. Energetically, interactively and beyond performance.
Founded by musical legend Rick Anthony in 1965 and led today by his daughter, chart topper Kim Sozzi, Creations has been at the forefront of every single band trend and style that has since emerged. Often topping our client’s speed dials, we put thought, planning and boundless energy into making each program completely unique, covering as little or as much of your entertainment as you require and desire. And from lighting and staging to sound production to arrangements, we create it all with unmatched experience, originality and signature flair.
You name it, we do it – bringing our handpicked, carefully trained family of talent to weddings, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events, charity galas and red carpet fetes, destination events from beach to ballroom, birthday and anniversary parties, and music productions around the world. From vintage favorites to the next wave of top 40 hits, from Mumford & Sons to Mozart and everything in between, we continue to redefine event music and production, blending the old with the new and taking it from the expected to the epic. And from our rich, diverse musical legacy to our virtually unlimited range of styles to the rare energy and chemistry we bring every single time – there is simply no other. Encore after encore.
A true New York icon, Creations was born and evolved with some of the greatest musical luminaries of our time. Working as a bandleader at the famed Copacabana in the mid 1960’s, Rick founded Creations, which became the longest running band ever to be featured in the Copa lounge. Performing seven nights a week, Rick and Creations shared stage and song with a star-studded roster of global legends from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, The Supremes, The Four Tops and many, many more. The band met with such acclaim that Rick soon expanded it from a trio to a five-piece and moved it to the burgeoning nightclub scene. In the late 60’s, Creations signed with the prestigious Norby Walters Agency, traveling and performing to packed houses across the country. After some time, Rick stepped down from the mic – and with the foresight of “the next music trend” that defined his career – shifted his focus to band management and talent development.
Carrying on her father’s legacy with pride, daughter Kim Sozzi achieved global recognition and a number of celebrated Top-40 hits as a recording artist…. while her rising interest in event music, production and cultivating talent propelled her to make Creations her number one priority. She brings her magnetism, unique brand of energy and extraordinary ability to perform songs that sound exactly as they do on the radio – and to teach others to do the same. The unstoppable father and daughter team draws on the tremendous amount of raw talent in New York and around the country, creating bands and styles that defy expectations and thrill clients, guests and audiences, leaving lasting impressions and memories that continue to resonate – and captivate – for years to come.
